Daily Circuit

So I just got caught up with two month's worth of posts from Nessasary Makeup when I realized that I haven't really been keeping up with my beauty blogs....I'm a little out of the loop with the new nail collections too (though I've seen pics of China Glaze's new collection via Jen who got them like months ago and they are quite amazing). It's like culture shock all over again!

Anyway, I decided to share my "daily circuit," aka the websites I visit as soon as Firefox opens.

1. Gmail/iGoogle- I'm obsessive about best friend, my sister and I are email junkies, so I usually have a Gmail tab open 24/7 on Firefox (oh, and I save every email cuz I treasure your feedback!). I recently discovered the usefulness of having an iGoogle page too.

2. Celeb Gossip- I think I've mentioned how celebrity gossip is my guilty pleasure. I hit up three sites: Dlisted, JustJared, and OhNoTheyDidnt. I love Michael K, he's amazing. Jared is probably the nicest celeb blogger out there (although Trent from Pink Is the New Blog is so nice too!) ONTD usually takes a LONG time to scroll through but the best part are the comments, which range from hilarious and catty to ...uh did she/he really say that?

3. Real News- after getting caught up in the latest antics of celeb shenanigans, I have to remind myself that sometimes the real world sucks. I love the news and being caught up on the latest world events and stuff, but sometimes it's really depressing. I like to go to BBC to get caught up on all world events, and then CNN for more U.S.-oriented news. Then, just because I get homesick sometimes and I'm one of those that loves their hometown, I peruse Sacbee.

4. Nerdy Stuff- EcoGeek & Engadget...I love all the scienfic talk about the environment and even though I don't understand like half of the stuff that's said on Engadget, it's super cool. Because even though I would never have the need for a G-Pen F-509 digital tablet, it doesn't mean I can't appreciate it.

That's a lot of interneting. Though I love beauty blogs, they're a bit of an afterthought. Sometimes I get distracted by Wikipedia (btw, my school was the featured article yesterday! It was amazing...and damn I should have screencapped it) and my whole daily circuit gets fragmented. But usually, these are the sites I frequent the most and are usually on the top of my Internet to-do list.

So, what are the sites you HAVE to visit every day?

Oh my goodness! I read your blog and others religiously! I have tons of stuff on my Google reader, nails blogs, beauty blogs, quilt blogs, knitting blogs..... It is so bad I wonder how I manage to do anything at all!!!!

Thanks so much for sharing!

I have every nail blog that I do read everyday. I have loads of makeup blogs and fashion blogs. I don't check on them as often. I check everyday. I also have a bunch of contest sites that I have to enter each day. Email is very important. Also I have loads of subscriptions to watch on YouTube. These are all makeup related. They are very hard to keep up with. I don't watch them as often. No wonder I live on the computer.
