Hello everyone! I’m extremely excited about this week’s TILT post. It’s packed with fantastic lovely things that I can’t wait to share with you all. So without further adieu, here we go!
1. My recent obsession, and newest cure for boredom is Pinterest.com. All it is is a collection of pictures, like a giant bulletin board, they call it a “pin board”, pinned with pictures. The first sentence on their “About Me” page explains it better:
“Think of Pinterest as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love and “follow” collections created by people with great taste.”
It’s perfect content for a TILT because the thing itself is like one continuous TILT post of your very own, only you aren’t limited to just one day a week! To get started creating your own “pin board” with this fabulous website, just request an invite on their home page (there’s a huge button, you can’t miss it). You can still browse pictures and search for things without an invite if you want to get a feel for it first, but in order for people to follow your pins and see the things you like you’ll need a username. This website is the coolest. You won’t be disapointed! If you want to follow my pins my username is ShelbyKTaylor
2. Ok, confession time. I don’t use Photoshop. I don’t even have it on my computer. I wish I did, but why buy expensive software when I’ve found a website that satisfies all my photo editing needs for FREE?! Enter, Picnik.com (yes, with a ‘K’).
I don’t do much editing wise with the pictures I take, so my needs are minimum. I’ve used Picnik for about a year now, and it has become my faithful friend. I actually use it to make the square picture collages you see on every Things I Love post! It’s incredible easy to use, and I absolutely love it! I hope you love it too!
3. So I have this weird new obsession with French Pop music. I know. Of all the kinds of music to be in to, right? But I actually stumbled upon a playlist of French Pop songs on this cool music website (see #4) the other day and fell in love! I can never listen to music when I study or write because I find myself trying to listen to the words and sing along with the song rather than letting it help me study or inspire me. But with this French music, I have no idea what the words are saying, so I’m not distracted! And the music, for the most part, is just plain good and I enjoy listening to it. Plus I love French. If you’re looking to switch up your music world, I highly suggest adding a little French to the mix!
Listen and Love:
4. The cool music website I mentioned in #3 is today’s #4. 8Tracks.com!! If, like me, you love discovering new music, this is the website for you! It’s really just a website full of mixes. They call themselves internet radio, but it’s really just a bunch of playlists. Mixes, radio, playlists; whatever it is I love it! It’s how I discovered the French music, and my go-to website for finding the perfect songs for my summer playlist. You can search for your favorite kinds of music, browse the tags, like playlists so you can listen to them over and over, and even make your own mixes for others to enjoy. It’s brilliant, and definitely a fave.
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week! See ya next Thursday,
