Are We Being Social? Plus Links à La Mode!


It's social media madness here at Not Dressed As Lamb - I want to check we're connected evvvvverywhere, lovely readers! I've been seriously getting to grips with Twitter lately, plus I've realised it's time to bite the Zuckerburg bullet and make my Facebook presence felt more: please, I need your Likes! So here is my Social Media Call to Arms - and don't forget to scroll down for this week's Links à La Mode (featuring yours truly) over at IFB! 


Facebook: I've just sorted out my brand new FB page, so I'll be adding more as time goes on - to start with, would you be good enough to "Like" my page if you're a FB user? Click here for the link - it would be a great start, thank you thank you!

Twitter: If you're not already following me, you've missed out on tweets letting you know as soon as a new posts are up on the blog, what sartorial wranglings I'm grappling with, plus links to the best fashion blog outfit(s) I've found on the interweb each day. Or if you have a quick question, tweet me!

Instagram: I usually share pics from my outfit posts - so it's another way to find out when a new ootd post is up on the blog. Plus I'm quite partial to a sunset, my latest manicure and a beautiful building or two.

Pinterest: With nearly 2,000 pins, I'm a hardcore Pinner! With boards on everything from My Autumn/Winter Style to Interiors Inspiration, Health & Fitness to DIY, there's something for everyone to follow. Wherever possible I always try and pin from the original source if there's a tutorial connected to it (rather than just repinning).

And there's just a few other things I wanted to share...

Vlog: In a post in July (so long ago), I asked readers to ask me questions that they wanted to hear me answer in a vlog - ring any bells with any of you? I'm afraid this little project's been put on hold for a few weeks [months]; Mr Summers is the resident filmmaker as I'm hopeless with a camcorder and editing. Unfortunately (for me) he's been working on a slightly more urgent creative project that's taking up quite a bit of his time at the moment - but that's a really good thing of course! So don't worry folks I haven't forgotten, it will eventually make an appearance!

Blogroll: I have updated my blogroll (click on the link under my header) - it now includes everyone's headers rather just a list of blog names, so you get a little more of a feel for a blog by their design.

Phototips Friday: Do any of you have any suggestions for my Photo Tips Friday posts? What would you like me to cover? I can't guarantee I can definitely cover that topic, but I'll sure see what I can do! Leave me suggestions in the comments below :)

That's it for now until a new outfit post tomorrow - and do check out Links à La Mode below. Have a great weekend!

Aubergine. Oceanic blue. Wedding White. For this week’s Links a la Mode round up, I focused on posts that drew inspiration or centered around color. Whether it was styling up a range of colorful pants or looking at the rise of black and white dressing, there were so many creative and cool blog posts centering on color. Take a look, get inspired and taste the rainbow!

  5. I have a Photo Tips Friday request please. In an earlier post you gave some very helpful suggestions on properly resizing images. Thank you for that by the way. You suggested that you might do a post on sizing images that have been cropped or resized. I would find that to be extremely helpful.

    Thanks, Sue xo
