Movin' from Google Reader to Bloglovin'

Hey everyone! Today is going to be a blog readers' announcement & helpful tutorial. Google recently announced that they will be getting rid of their blog reading program Google Reader on July 1st, which means that everyone reading this blog using Google Reader will sadly no longer be able to. If this sounds like mumbo-jumbo to you, then let me introduce you to the wonderful world of RSS Feeds!


An RSS feed is basically like a blog's content updated in real time. A "reader" helps you to read all of the RSS feeds you subscribe to. If you read a lot of blogs, it can be easier to go to one place to read all of your feeds so you don't need to click on each blog separately to check for updates. It's like reading all your favorite blog updates in one cohesive blog, which makes blog reading so much easier!

This is the symbol for an RSS feed

To bring it back to the topic at hand, a couple years ago I discovered a reader called Bloglovin' which is actually catered toward fashion and beauty blogs. It's now my main site used for following the eleventy-billion blogs I follow, organized by category, and I don't even know what I did before using it. I have a feeling you guys might like using it too, so consider this a PSA. ;)

Obviously I don't want to leave my Google Reader subscribers stranded so I wanted to share how to migrate your Reader subscriptions from Google to Bloglovin' before the inevitable crash and burn on July 1st.

First step, click here:
http://www.bloglovin.com/import/reader

On that page, click on "Import from Google Reader":

That should save a lot of pain from importing each blog manually and prevent your RSS feeds from disappearing.

For those of you who aren't already using a reader and would like to follow on Bloglovin' just click this button below.

Follow on Bloglovin

Hopefully this was helpful! 

Readers, how do you follow From Head To Toe? Bookmarks? RSS feeds? A blog reader? Let me know in the comments!

Wedding Photoshoot Pics & 5th Anniversary


Hello everyone! My weekend has started off to be a wonderful, relaxing time spent with family and, of course, my loving husband. We just celebrated our 5-year wedding anniversary yesterday (June 21st) and I can't believe it's already been this long that we have loved and supported each other through every up and down, which have been plentiful yet bearable since I get to share the laughter and tears with my best friend.

In lieu of traditional anniversary presents, we thought it would be an incredible experience to have wedding photos taken while we visited Korea since Koreans really know how to compose breathtaking couples pictures. It's a big deal there so I knew it would be the best souvenir we could take home with us.

3 MINUTE MAKEUP CHALLENGE!!


Happy hump day everyone! To get you out of your mid-week slump, I wanted to share a video I posted which is the best kind: short and slightly self-deprecating.

I was recently tagged by Lindy aka bubzbeauty on Youtube to do the 3 Minute Makeup Challenge which is exactly as it sounds. You must do an entire makeup look, as best you can, in only 3 minutes. Applying makeup in itself can be a challenge but to do an entire look in 3 minutes is prettttttttty crazy. I'm pretty much still sweating just thinking about it, but to your benefit it brings the lols. ;)

Check out the video below!

Manicure Monday: Sensationail Gold Glitter Gradient


Hey everyone! I want to officially welcome back the return of Manicure Mondays. I took a little break from consistent manicures while I was on vacation in Korea because I didn't change my nails too much while I was gone. Instead, I tried out an at-home gel nail kit called Sensationail since gel nails last a purported 2 weeks. I knew it would be a solid pick for a long trip, saving nail polish space in my luggage for new colors to pick up while overseas. It was a win-win situation!

Fresh Makeup for Sick Days


Hey everyone! It feels so good to finally be back at my own computer after taking such a long break to South Korea. Now that I'm back I finally have access to a few files that I accidentally left behind at home, so I wanted to share with you a helpful video that I actually posted on Youtube a couple weeks ago: Makeup for Sick Days.

When we are sick most of us tend to look the part, especially concerning the red or sallow look our skin gets, dark undereye circles and puffiness, and dull eyes. Unfortunately, it's still really important to abandon our duvet-caves and trudge back out into the real world looking convincingly healthy! This is why I came up with a tutorial with a few tips on how to look a bit brighter on those yucky days.
