Birchbloggers Cynthia Rowley Spring Beauty Line Event

Affilier Gratuit

cynthia rowley spring beauty line A couple of weeks ago, Birchbox, the monthly beauty box with the amazing points program,* hosted an event for their Birchbloggers at the Cynthia Rowley boutique. On display and for play was the Cynthia Rowley Spring Beauty Line. And I was one of the lucky few who won the entire collection to review.

(*In case you’re not familiar with it, Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where, for just $10 a month, you receive a box full of deluxe-sized and travel-sized samples. You receive Birchbox points for every purchase you make and every review your write, which can be redeemed in their store. For every 100 points you earn, you get $10 a full-sized product order.

Paris Haul: High-end edition (aka The Mother of All Hauls, part II)

Affilier Acheté

Paris haul Continuing where we left off with my Paris pharmacy haul, I now present the droolworthy Paris haul of high-end products I sold my soul for invested in. I managed to do quite a bit of damage in a very short amount of time (about an hour…this is why I had a list!). My sister was appalled impressed.

Paris Haul: Pharmacy edition (aka The Mother of All Hauls, part I)

Affilier Acheté

Some of you have been waiting for this, some of you haven’t, but here goes nothing. It’s taken me this long to post about my Paris haul because of all the things that I had to photograph! And the weather hasn’t been that cooperative. (I need to get some lighting!!)

You may have seen my “overview” on Instagram, but here we go in detail… (more…)

Haul and Review: Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Eyeshadows and Kohl Pencil

Affilier Acheté

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

Rouge Bunny Rouge is one of those under-the-radar brands that, when first reading the name on other blogs, I’d go, “What’s that brand called?! What IS that?!” But from everything I saw, I knew I needed to have some of it in my life. And I was right.

Tips for Shopping Overseas

Shopping overseas It will surprise no one that I like to shop. Or that I like to travel. Or that I like to shop while I’m traveling. Since I’m heading off to France (I know, again) in a week and a half, I thought I would write up a guide with everything I’ve learned about shopping overseas.

Shani Asks You Sundays – Blog Pet Peeve

Here is this week’s question:

What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to blogs (of any kind)?

For me, my absolute biggest pet peeve is when the blogging system doesn’t notify you of replies to comments. It just drives me nuts when you can see the blogger clearly invested in a nice theme, nice design elements, is quite successful, yet if you want to know if they’ve replied to you, you must go and constantly check the entry. Grrrrrrr.

How about you?

The Liebster Award x 2

I am honored and touched to have been nominated for the Liebster Award twice within a week or so, first by Anna of Beauty by Shortylegs and then by Dea of Her Deauty.

The Liebster Award is a way of giving accolades to blogs with 200 or less followers. Basically, most of us who work hard at our blogs and aren’t famous for it.

I’ve been so busy, that I haven’t had time to answer the questions until now, but here we go!

Wishlist Wednesday #20 – Valentino Rockstud Shoes

Affilier

Normally, I’m not one to want an article of clothing or an accessory that is super well known or that everyone has (part of my problem with designer bags), but I’ve seen different variations of the Valentino Rockstud Shoes on different blogs lately, and…they just look so HOT.

Poll: Which blog layout style do you prefer?

Changes are going on behind the scenes at shedreamsinperfectfrench. This is going to include a change to my blog theme. Which, of course, makes me wonder about blog layouts.

I know that I definitely prefer reading some blogs over others, and so much has to do with design and layout. I want my blog to be pleasing to my readers, so I would love your input as to which blog layout style you prefer to read.

I’m kind of layout illiterate, so let me explain what I mean by the choices below with examples:

Choice 1: Continuous reading on one page
This is the style I currently have. You come to my blog, you find the latest entry, you scroll down to read (sometimes with a “read more” tag).

Choice 2: Large most recent post with thumbnail magazine layout
The most recent entry is in large at the top, and the archives appear as a grid of images below. Zoé Macaron is an example of this style.

Choice 3: Dynamic large posts with thumbnail magazine layout
A couple of most recent entries appear in a large carousel at the top, and the archives appear as a grid of images below. Gemsmaquillage is an example of this style.

Choice 4: Large main image for each post, click to read
Each post is represented by a large image, running vertically down the page. To read the entry, you click on the image. Vivianna Does Makeup is an example of this style.
