Let's Get Social: I'm Loving My New Social Circle Business Cards!

A few weeks ago, I was perusing a beauty blogging group that I'm part of on Facebook and came across a post from Jen of mybeautybunny.com. She was talking about these fabulous new business cards she had just gotten from Social Circle Cards. The photo she shared of her customized cards was enough to make me reach out to them immediately, especially since I'd been dying to redo my business cards for, I don't know, two years or so. (Chalk that up to supreme laziness.) And thus my quest to obtain fabulous new business cards was finally ready to come to a very perfect end.

Social Circle Cards are small but mighty. The round cards with scalloped edges come in a personalized carrying case. You can include up to five different social networks and websites on a card depending on space. Once you decide which design you'd like -- there are a ton to choose from, and all are so gorgeous it's seriously tough to pick just one -- you work with a designer to customize your cards.

Is this carrying case the cutest or what?

After MUCH deliberation -- because, really, I wanted to choose so many of the designs! -- I settled upon the Stacy. I love the color scheme -- black, gold and white are just so chic together. I also love the font and the overall design of this card. You can actually customize your cards with various colors, fonts or even logos, but I loved these just as they were!

I originally wanted to include both my blog and portfolio links on my cards, but I decided in the end that they took up too much space and didn't allow me to include my social media handles. And, since I'm really using these for my blog instead of my work portfolio, I decided to lose that link. (Hey, I can always get a second set of cards for that!)

The links and handles I eventually decided upon are:

My blog link (for obvious reasons)
My email address

Networking at its chicest!

Even though you're really only supposed to be able to include five links and handles, I'm thrilled that I was able to get a sixth on there! I'm absolutely thrilled with how these turned out. I only needed to do one round of edits with the designer and then I was completely satisfied.

And, to top it all off, they shipped QUICKLY! Once the design was customized and finished, I got my cards within a week. Talk about a fast turnaround!

Social Circle Cards start at $34.95 for 50 cards plus a case, or you can get refills of cards (100 for $39.95 and 200 for $59.95). I can't wait to start handing mine out to people! Visit socialcirclecards.com now so you can create your very own business cards, too.

I'm obsessed with blotting linens. There's something oddly satisfying about watching all the grease and grime come off your face in just a few small dabs, isn't there? So when the beautyblender Blotterazi showed up in my PLAY! by Sephora box last month, I was immediately intrigued.

When I was about 12, this store called Expressions was all the rage in Cleveland. People had birthday parties there. Girls begged their moms to take them there on a Saturday afternoon. But why, you may ask. Why was this one T-shirt store so popular?

#ManiMonday: KBShimmer Don't Play Koi from the Summer 2016 Collection

KBShimmer is one of those brands I've thought about buying for, well, basically FOREVER. I keep seeing swatches, and they keep making me sad that I don't own any of the polishes, but then I don't just go and BUY them. Well, that all changed last week when I finally bit the bullet and bought not one but FOUR KBShimmer polishes to get my collection started! As soon as they arrived, my only problem was deciding which one to paint my nails with first. After a long, hard look at each one, I chose KBShimmer Don't Play Koi.
