We’re Experiencing Technical Difficulties

What do you get when you have me trying to perform a memory upgrade on my own computer? You get a busted computer. I got a little ambitious over the holiday weekend and tried to install some memory in my computer, I guess I was inspired by the deal I got. smile While I was trying to disconnect everything, I somehow messed up the cord to my monitor (the one that doesn’t come out) and my computer seems to be stuck in DOS mode now. Moral of the story, I’m out of commission for a little while but I’ll be back as soon as I can.

In the meantime, let’s pretend you have the chance to ask a world renowned makeup artist any question you would like. What would you ask? Here’s your chance. We’ll give you more details on this when we’re back in full operating mode but for now, leave a comment and ask a question. You may see you’re question answered here soon.

A Mini Break

In case you didn’t notice, we’re taking a little mini break from Product Girl this week. This past Memorial Day has left us a little tired so we’re taking some much needed rest and relaxation. We’ll be back to kick off the week on Sunday with new products from Tarte, Duwop, Jelly Pong Pong, Vincent Longo and more.

In the meantime, we’re still looking for new contributors to participate in our blog. If you have contacted us about this before, please do try again as some technical issues have prevented me from replying. They are all resolved now so it’s full steam ahead. If you’re a beauty product addict, Product Girl is the perfect outlet to channel that addiction. smile Feel free to leave a comment or email me.

Excuse Us While We Tidy Up

If you’re visiting Product Girl this weekend and things seem a little bit off, don’t worry… we’re fixing it. We’ll be moving the site to a new host and things will be look a little different while we work out the kinks. The move should be complete in 48 hours and content is mirrored on both servers so there shouldn’t be a problem. In addition, permalinks to posts will change to a new structure. If you have something in particular bookmarked, please update your bookmarks with the new link. If you’re looking for something particular in the meantime, use the search tool to the left.

Also, if you’re interested in contributing to Product Girl, comment on this entry. We’re always looking for new beauty addicts who want to share their love of makeup. 🙂

Ch-Ch-Changes

I know it’s been awhile since a new podcast episode has come out but there will be one soon. The technical difficulties I experienced are now resolved and I’m hoping to release a new episode next week, hopefully on Monday. I will be releasing new podcast episodes on Monday now, I don’t know why I thought Friday would be better. smile

Also, I am making some changes with Product Girl this week. I am moving the blog to a different server but before I actually “flip the switch”, I will be mirroring content on both servers so there will not be any downtime. If you experience any difficulty, please keep in mind this blog will be in transition during that time. I will post and update once I actually complete the change. When the blog comes back, I plan on coming back bigger and better than before. I apologize, I’ve been in a funk lately but I’m coming out of it and there’s a lot of stuff I want to talk about. Not to mention the great posts from Colleen and Ashley, more of those are on the way.

Finally, I would love for more people to come aboard and help contribute to Product Girl. If you’re interested in posting or contributing to the podcast, please or leave a comment on this entry. We would love to hear from you.

Now in Syndication

I’m happy to announce that Product Girl is now in syndication in a few different sites! In addition to being a Top 10 Source, Product Girl is also now listed at The Salon at Star Style, Coutorture and Glam. I’m very excited about this and this means that Product Girl is growing and heading the right direction.

p.s. the podcast is a little delayed today but it will be up later Tuesday evening. Sorry!

My Stash is Revealed

Collection Awhile ago I asked if readers have a collection or a stash of makeup. I mentioned that I would share mine as well. I finally got around to taking most of it out and I made little video clips of it. Some of it is in different handbags and I didn’t get it for this, but this is the bulk of it.

I keep my makeup in this rolling cart and I organize it by drawers. I’ll explain this in the rest of the post. I might need something bigger down the road but for now, this works. I’ll show you my secret stash as well and the stash of a couple of readers. Fun, fun, fun! 🙂

You’re still in time if you want to share yours too! And Colleen, where’s yours? Huh?

Product Girl in the Press

In addition to syndication on popular sites like The Salon at Star Style, Coutorture and Glam, this weblog has also received a little bit of press in it’s short life that has made for some very exciting growth here at Product Girl.

On March 23, 2006, Product Girl was mentioned in an article on beauty bloggers in the Style section the New York Times:

Then in May, Product Girl was also featured in a piece called Chic Geek in WWDBeauty Biz magazine:

Do You Have a Collection?

I was chatting with my lovely co-worker Colleen the other day and I was asking her for ideas for this weblog. She had a fantastic idea, why not ask readers to everyone their collections? And by collection, I mean your beauty products. I’ve done this before in one of the LiveJournal communities I was active in and I loved seeing all the products people had. It also gave me some great ideas on what other products I could try.

So what do you think? You show me your collection and I’ll show you mine? To participate, just comment on this entry and include a link to your photos. You can even send me a video clip. Once we have enough partipants, I’ll post them all at the same time. Sound good? 🙂

Also, I’m going to be trying something new in the next few days. I’m going to attempt to put together a podcast! I’ve been talking about this a little bit with Christina and I think I finally have the guts to do this… just don’t laugh at my voice. I’ve recorded one segment so far and I’m going to work on the rest tomorrow and hopefully I’ll have this available for download by Friday. Cross your fingers for me, ok?
