Come and see the sites

The past few months have been filled with so many new web sites that I have been checking out. It seems like they are popping up all over the place recently or perhaps I just have been paying a little bit more attention lately. Either way I have found some fun and interesting sites that I really want to share with you. It's a good way to wrap up your work week by wasting the last few hours of the day on the web and I highly recommend it. Although I personal would never do such a thing (my boss does read this blog!).

I have written about this before but I love Pinterest. As another blogger recently said, I have been mainlining this site for the past few months. It's essentially the manila folder for all of my favorite things I come across on the web. It's similar to tearing things out of a magazine and placing in your someday folder, but less messy since you don't need glue or scissors. Also since it does have a social media aspect you can check out what your friends or even just strangers are into to. It's just super awesome, period. Check it out. You won't regret it. It is still invite only and you can request an invite, but that can take a week or longer to get. If you must have ASAP shoot me an email or post in the comments and I will send you an instant invite: shannonin30s at gmail dot com

Thanks to the twitterverse I recently followed up on a recommendation from Demi Moore (aka @mrskutcher) on a sale site called Fab.com. This is not your run of the mill discount on designer products site, it is way more interesting than that. This site has fun, some times off the wall and different products that they sell for a set amount of time at completely reasonable prices. Like this:

Super cool!

This is an invite site as well, but I requested an invite and had one within about 5 minutes or I can send you an invite to this as well if you want! Just let me know.

Lastly I will wax poetic about Birchbox again, but this time for their extremely awesome site and not just the monthly box of goodness. They have tips and tutorials on the site that have literally changed the way I put on my makeup. They have insider stylist and professional ideas and tips that I have always wanted to know, but have never knew how to do without looking like a clown or a celeb right before she is forced into rehab. They also have a great blog that has information about makeup and beyond. Definitely worth a few minutes of your time. I also suggest you follow them on twitter and then you will be in the know when they post new things!

P.S. If you are not on twitter, please get on it. Like now. You're actually missing out on some pretty amazing things. Should you need more convincing read this awesome post from one of my favorite bloggers Barefoot Foodie. She is pretty hilarious.
