Polyvore – A Blogger + Shoperholics Dream

While blogging I’ve got more into websites that aim to organise all my beauty & skin care thoughts. One of the more obvious ones is Evernote a way of sharing notes between my PC and Htc One. I think I prefer having a visual aesthetic which appeals to me being able to decide what I would like or what items I can introduce to my wardrobe for the coming season. I do love Pintrest which allows me to save multiple ides and store them in one space & over multiple interests. What I was looking for was a way to gather thoughts or see all the things I’ve wanted. This way I could also see what I would prefer more.

Polyvore

Polyvore – Whats The Point?

Be warned when you sign up to Polyvore you open yourself up to not just seeing your own wish lists but that of everybody elses too. It’s similar to Pinterest in the way you can view Peoples boards. They don’t seem individually but as a collection made up by whoever wanted to display it. As you can see above it can include new trends, favorite beauty items & what you might like to pick up next! I can get lost on this website looking at all the collages of beauty bits but there are also sections devoted to home & fashion which are just as addictive. All you have to do is add a Clip button to your bookmarks at the top of your webpage . When you like something simply click the Clip To Polyvore button & add tags if you wish, check the price is right for the item then save.

Whys it Good?

Wish Lists – As you search the internet for that holy grail foundation or just need another fall nail varnish this is where you can piece together what you’d like. Wether you’re a blogger or a shopaholic a like you can get a clear view of what your interested in & next to the other items what you want more.

Stick To A Budget – When your out shopping remembering how much cash you can spend is useful. Make a list of everything you’d like then you can see if it’s within your means.

Those Boots You Have To Own! – So you’ve fallen in love with them but are still undecided. On Polyvore you can pair up those boots into an image along with available images of clothes you already own. See if you’ll get at much use out of them as you think before you blow this weeks food budget on your feet.

Dream On & On & On – Let’s just say said blogger had a love for Marc Jacobs bags but can’t afford that price range yet. Why not have a gander at all the bags & work out if you won the lottery which one you or all of them you’d buy. Dreaming of the things you would like in life gives you goals to work towards, it’s a good thing.

These are just a few of the sets I've created on Polyvore myself.

Sales – So you really need that dress but have absolutely no way to buy it. Clip it to Polyvore in whichever collection you want. If it comes up on sale at the place you clipped it from Polyvore will email you with this information including the new lower price.

WordPress + Blogger – When you’ve done with you collection & are ready to share it with the rest of us then you can publish your set. You can then share it as a draft directly to you blog account. The only pants bit is it converts prices to dollars so you have to go back and alter if you’re in the UK.

Sharing In The Fun – You can also share with social media, not just your sets & collections but even individual items. Showing what your into at that very moment with just as few clicks.

Make It Mobile – Polyvore is also available as an app on your phone. I’m on android so not sure about iPhone users but it’s great for checking in on what you’ve got your eye on while on the go. You can add items in your set & others already on the site but no way of sharing new items on the go yet…

Any Downsides?

Not really but I will explain that the point of Polyvore is to get us to buy stuff. In all likely hood they will receive money for click-through to the other websites. What we can do is make use of it in many more ways to make us savvy shoppers. Polyvore is useful for us as much as it is for them when it comes to the best buys.

 

 

August Wishlist

July August Wishlist

 

July has been quite a thrifty one when it comes to makeup. I’ve been discovering old loves and making use of long forgotten buys. I’m spending more time deliberating on what I will use so I don’t end up with endless draws of beauty bits. There are a few things below that keep coming to mind and they are above and hopefully I’ll pick some up soon and into August as well.

July August Wish List Picks & Why

Eylure Brow Palette
£9.95 – superdrug.com
I’m liking the idea that Eyelure have expanded out into the makeup arena, maybe not in typical fashion but they know eyes and brows are essential for framing them. I’m hopihn for high standards to match the price tag.

Rimmel Kate Emerald Gel Eyeliner
£6.99 – superdrug.com
Since I saw this on the shelves with the rest of the Kate collection this has been the piece that was stand out for me. I’ve been playing around with blue eyeliner and more recently with greens. I think this could be the perfect level of colour but still a darker shade.

Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Bomb
£2.99 – superdrug.com

Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Shock
£2.99 – superdrug.com
Heres hoping I fair better with these ones, if anything I’m a lip balm hoarder and these speak to me. Love the bold packaging and I’m intrigued by the berry shade.

B. Sculpted Contour Kit Light – B. – Eye Shadow
£8.49 (offer) – superdrug.com
I haven’t tried contouring so something drugstore would suit first attempts. I like that this is matte, creamy and has a light shade for pale skin.

Sleek MakeUp Bare Skin Foundation
£8.99 – boots.com
Do I need another foundation, no! Do I want one, very much so. I tried this in store and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. It’s definitely a light coverage but also a light enough shade.

I love the Barry M Matt nail varnishes and after loving the Sinful Colours matt  a bright shade I know I’ll have to pick at least one up. I’m aiming for Cancun as it’s a bright green shade it’s right up my street and beautiful for summer.

Eylure Brow And Tame Define Wax
£6.45 – superdrug.com
My brows are getting to the point of excess so I could do with some taming and I think this could do the trick for me.
