Friday Finds



Its been a while since my last Friday Finds, but I have a whole new crop of websites, apps, and social media users you are going to want to check out!!

Blogs


I love Laura's About this Blog:  "Just so you know this is a blog about shopping. It doesn't get any deeper than that."  I love that!  And I love that it's not specifically a fashion blog or a beauty blog; She does such an even mix of both.



Christine's blog is brand new, but already is pretty amazing!  Her blog is adorable, she takes phenomenal photos, and she reviews relevant products that many want to know about.  Seoul Stine is a blog that definitely has potential to go far. 


I discovered Laila's blog through the Beauty and Fashion Bloggers Blog Hop that she hosts every Saturday!  I love her review of Korean Beauty Products  and she offers some great tips for new bloggers.


Shop



I have an unhealthy obsession with office supplies and all things used to organize.  MochiThings has all that and more.  And everything is just so darn cute!


Quirky is full of products invented by just regular people.  You submit your idea and its voted on by the public.  Quirky then puts the most popular ideas into production and sells them; AND the inventor gets a cut of the profit.  The products created and sold are ingenious.  It will leave you thinking "why didn't I think of that??"


Apps

 Frame Swagg - I have been getting a little more into Instagram lately.  I had been noticing a lot more of the people and companies I follow post 3 or 4 picture collages and I couldn't figure out how they were doing it . . . like everything else, there's an app for that.  While there are tons of free collage apps, I download Frame Swagg and Pic Stitch.  They both do the same thing, but I just prefer Frame Swagg's interface.

And since I mention it,  check out my Instagram @Tesoribelle and follow me for product snap shots, impromptu hauls, beauty boxes, sneak peaks and more!

Uber - I wish I had invented Uber because it is just such an incredible idea.  Uber gives you on demand car service in 35 US cities and 14 countries.  I used it a lot when I was in California earlier this month and it was AMAZING!  You create an account and enter in your credit card information and download the app.  Then when you need a ride, you just open the app and request a taxi or car service. The app will determine your location using the GPS in your phone and send you alerts as to how long it will take, when your car is approaching and when they are there.  You can even see the cars location, the name and picture of the driver, make and model of the car and the car's license plate.  And there is no exchange of money; they just charge your credit card when you are done. 

To save $10 off your first ride, use promo code 1R0HI when you sign up, or sign up HERE.

Fast Camera - Have you ever wanted to get the perfect picture but couldn't?  Fast Camera makes it easy.  Taking over 800 pictures a picture, you won't miss a shot.  It basically takes a video and then displays the video in hundreds of pictures allowing you to select the best ones to kep. You can then delete all the extras.

Other Finds

On Instagram - One of my favorite bloggers, Ashlinda of The Decorista, instagrams various doors she finds around New York City.  I am so obsessed with it.  Check it out @thedoorsofnewyork.


On Twitter - I just discovered OscarPRGirl and I want to be her.


On Youtube - Miranda Sings is an internet character created by comedian/actress/singer Colleen Ballinger.  I can't even begin to describe the awesomeness of Miranda Sings, so just go check out her videos.
