Now on Bloglovin'!!

Yay me!! I finally made the move to Bloglovin'!! I had heard of Bloglovin' for a while now since I started blogging a few years ago, but I never thought of joining because I always felt it was only for "serious" bloggers, like the people who have their own brand to promote, or who are sponsored by companies. It wasn't until I was searching through Bloglovin' for the Liebster Award that I realized that not only are there many casual bloggers such as myself on Bloglovin', but it is also a great way to discover new blogs!

Setting up an account and adding my blog was pretty easy, although deciding what category it fit into proved to be more tricky. I was tempted to put it under "Other", but decided that "Personal" had a more appealing sound to it, and my blog is more of a personal interest blog than anything else.

For those of you who haven't tried Bloglovin', I definitely recommend it! You can see all of the blogs you follow in one place and it's easy to get updates when there are new posts, so you can keep up with new content easier than with the blog list on Blogger. It's easy to discover new blogs since you can search by blog name, author name, or category/topic, and Bloglovin' gives you suggestions of other blogs you may be interested in based on the ones you are already following. You can also easily follow and like blogs and posts through the Bloglovin' interface. For the mobile-savvy out there, there is an app that is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android.

Leopard Print Nails

This is my second time using Funky Nails, which some of you may remember from this earlier post. This time, I fared a little better as far as the application went (as I had mentioned in my initial review, practice makes perfect!). This time, instead of folding the excess over my nails and leaving it like that, I folded the extra over my nail tips, and then filed it off, so the applique ended at the tips of my nails.
