My Social Media Roommates + #YOLOmondays Link Up

August 27, 2012·

You guys, I’m guest posting for the fabulous Angela of Head to Toe Chic today! You should check it out!

On to today’s post! Now, I love social media. I think, when used correctly and responsibly, social media can be such a blessing and a GREAT way to connect with people. Anywhere.

Well, last Friday night, husband and I were going out for a casual date night for my “official” birthday dinner, and I COULD NOT decide what to wear. I was stressing out. For real.

So I thought, “Man, I miss being in college and having girl roommates whom I could run in to their rooms and ask for opinions.”So, I thought, I’ll do the next best thing. I’ll ask my social media roommates.

I took pics of my outfit options (photo below). Combined them in #PicFrame, and then posted the picture to my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts:

Then, I went and finished getting ready… you know I did my hair and my makeup.

Within MINUTES, between the three accounts, I had close to 40 responses from people.

“1!” “2!” “3!” – It was awesome!

My husband also happened to see the picture on twitter and asked if his vote counted. Of course. His vote was most important! Well, he happened to agree with the majority… and outfit #3 won!

So, here’s what I wore for casual date night:

Outfit Deets:

And you know, had to blow out a candle in some sherbet. No big deal.

So, have YOU ever turned to your social media roommates? Do you love social media?

The Rules for #YOLOMONDAYS Link-Ups:

So be nice and share a link! 🙂 Pretty please?
  2. Link your blog post up using the linky tool below! It can be ANYTHING! An outfit post, a giveaway, a story, a recipe, whatever. Why? Cause it’s #YOLOMONDAYS!
