A Beautiful Disaster - Makeup Fashion Blog

Hi everyone! I just wanted to introduce you to my dear friend Kelly and her new blog, A Beautiful Disaster.  This is her first blog, and with two posts. it is already a great read. She is a lover of books, art, nature, makeup, and fashion (just to name a few).


Her first two posts talk about what to expect from the blog and about her obsession with colorful things, including nail polish. It is the perfect 'Girly' blog for every lady out there. Kelly is also an artist, we went to art school together, and a lovely writer.

I have known her my whole life. We went to Catholic elementary school, lived in the same nieghborhood, and worked at the small local grocery store also. She got me the job back when we were in college =). Oh what fun we had closing the deli department.

She was in my wedding and is the one friend who visits me in NYC every year. Thanks Kelly for visiting me. No one else does! No they do, I'm just kidding. Seriously though, she does visit every year. I didn't think it would be so hard to get people to actually take a trip and visit. They get a trip to Manhattan, with free hotel because they stay with me, and it's like pulling teeth to get people to visit.

Anyways... I got off subject alittle. Well go check out Kelly's blog and follow too.

Enjoy!
Julia

Google + Personal and Fanpage

I have joined the social networking site Google + and created a fanpage to showcase artwork and current art updates. Google + is a fairly new networking platform, similar to facebook, in which you post status updates and show pictures. 


Google + is very user friendly and easy to create. I made my page in about 5 minutes. To create a business / fanpage, you must have a personal page first. Before starting, you need to register with google and sign up for an account. It is free and if you use blogger, then well you already have an account.

There are options to link your blog posts so they update directly to your google + page, similar to facebook. Very convenient and easy. I have not figured out if there is an option to link it to twitter yet, a future thing for me to do. 

I recommend having one. I hear that it will help with google search engine ranking, as well as extra exposure. It is so simple to create, so why not.

Described as by the creator...

The Fairy Society is An Enchanted Social Networking Community created for Friendship, Selling & Shopping. 

I just stumbled upon the site while doing an internet search for fantasy art sites. I can't believe it took me so long to find this community, but that's me. Always the last to find things =)


The community also has a magazine called Fairy Society Magazine. The information about this magazine can be found and viewed at http://fairysocietymagazine.com/
