Timely Social Media

So my PR side is coming out on this post… I have collected a lot of different social media posts from various companies and outlets about events that have happened so far this year. These events are the Olympics, Presidents Day and Chinese New Years! I decided to do this post in chronological order! Here are the posts that are about Chinese New Years which happened on Jan. 31:

This is a Facebook post from LUSH Cosmetics Willowbrook Mall! I love this post… it tell s you that it is Chinese New Year and that it is the year of the horse! The only thing that I do not enjoy about this post is that the picture is not related to LUSH… I think using pictures like this is a bit tacky. But then again, LUSH probably did not publish any Chinese New Year original pictures.

This post is also from Facebook but this time it is a #lilly5x5 design from Lilly Pulitzer. I love the #lilly5x5 designs. I think this is a great idea and job by Lilly! I have talked about previous Lilly social media in posts below.

Unlike the other two, this is a post from Instagram from the @shopncla account! I guess that they had a special, limited edition #CNY nail wrap design. If you are unaware, ncLA has great nail wrap designs! They are very very popular!

So now onto the Olympics! I am sure everyone was aware that the Olympics happened at the beginning of February and just ended about a week ago. I thought that this was a great sponsored post on my Facebook account! NBC is the channel that airs the Olympics! What was your favorite Olympic moment?

This post is also from Facebook. I follow Shaun White who had a countdown from 50 days until Sochi (#countdowntosochi)! I thought that this was a great picture of him winning four years ago. Only is he did that good this year… He is still one of my favorites! Who is your favorite athlete?

Now this was another post from Facebook. I follow Vineyard Vines which is a Northeastern, preppy company! There logo is a pink whale! The company always dresses up the whale for special events! I guess this is the Olympic spirit whale! How cute?!

For my last Olympic social media post, I wanted to do another #lilly5x5 from Instagram. I LOVE this #lilly5x5. It is a great take on the Olympic rings with a Lilly flare! If you cannot tell, the rings are painted with various leaves and flowers.

And finally, my last social media picture is from Lilly Pulitzer’s Facebook page. This post is again…. another #lilly5x5! I loved the look of this painting! It is very very patriotic! I also like this post because it is multi-functional. It connects Lilly’s Facebook to their Pinterest where you can pin the entire #lilly5x5 collection.

I love doing these social media posts from time to time. Let me know if you like reading them! If you are a fan of a companies social media presence share below! I would love to check them out!

Butter London Heavy Medal Collection

The 2014 Winter Olympic games started tonight in Sochi, Russia! I love the Olympics… it is so nice to see all of these countries come together under one roof! Of course, I will be routing for my favorite snow boarder who has won 2 gold medals on the half pipe, Mr. Shaun White! But this is a post about nail polish here Andrea… I got to get myself back on track! I purchased the limited edition Butter London Heavy Medal Collection that was made for the 2012 Summer Olympics that of course, were in London!

Here is what the packaging looked like:

And my polishes:

  • Diamond Geezer – this is the silver polish… I LOVE this polish. I wear it a lot… way more than I thought I would. Silver is a beautiful polish color but can be kind of unusual for some people!
  • The Full Monty – this is the gold polish. I love how metallic it is. I see myself reaching for this polish when I am looking for a simple, yet trendy polish to wear! And like I said above… I will be sporting this GOLD polish the night Shaun White competes!
  • The Old Bill – last but definitely not bad at all… we have the bronze shade. This is a great shade! It is a beautiful rose gold color… but more bronze. I wear this one A LOT! Great for every month.

I loved getting this collection during the summer games. It was awesome to wear all the colors while the 2012 Olympics were happening! Unfortunately, they did not come out with this collection again for the 2014 Olympics… but I am sure someone is bound to be selling this Heavy Metal collection on Amazon or E-bay. ALSO, Butter London¬†sells each of these polishes individually. Butter London¬†has a lot of great nail polish shades! I have a few more from this brand that are not from this collection! I will be sure to post about them soon. Who will you be routing for in the 2014 Olympics?!
