Free February Wallpaper | Tech Tuesday

When I was making my editorial calendar this week I was shocked when I saw that Sunday was February 1st! Say what?! 

Every month I like to change my desktop wallpaper. I decided to make something lovely for February and share it as a free download with my Pink on the Cheek readers! Free Wallpaper for February

Hope you love it as much as I do. Heed this as an early reminder to make your Valentine’s Day dinner reservations now! You know all the good dinner times will be scooped up first. Or you can celebrate how we like to do it…make a dinner reservation for the 13th! The restaurants are less crowded AND you don’t have to get roped into a pre fixe menu that it going to cost you tons.

Don’t forget to download your free February wallpaper!

Hey friends! I hope you are getting ready for an awesome weekend. Tell me what your plans are in the comments so I can live vicariously through you! For my plans this weekend – I am still fighting off this nasty cold so plan on spending a lot of times under the covers. I also have spent a lot of time scrolling on Instagram and watching all the fun happening at Alt Summit. If you want to know what I am talking about, go on Instagram (plus follow me!) and search #altsummit.

I also wanted to give you a little freebie to play with over the weekend. 

I made these hand drawn arrows to spice up your photos, like so.

The hand drawn arrows come in the following colors:

January 2015 Stitch Fix Review

I am back with another Stitch Fix review! Seriously it’s like Christmas on my doorstep when my fix arrives. Yes, my postman probably thinks I have a shopping addiction, but I will save that for another post.

If you haven’t tried Stitch Fix yet here are some helpful tips:

1. Be super duper detailed in the notes section to your stylist. For instance when I needed clothes for my bridal shower and bachelorette party I told my stylist about it. I wanted maxi dresses for Vegas and shift dress for my shower. My stylist knocked it out of the park and I kept the entire fix.

2. Get on Pinterest! Don’t miss out on the style section that asks for your Pinterest board. For example here is my Stitch Fix board. I like searching for other Pinterest boards for Stitch Fix items that I want in my fix. Or I just Google “Stitch Fix Review” and pin to my heart’s content.

Okay, now let’s see what I received in my fix this month!

Skies are Blue “Maia Embroidered Cotton Knit Top” $58

Verdict – Return

I originally thought I would like this top because the detailing was really pretty. But putting it on, I felt like the color kinda washed me out. I would have like this top in another color.

Brixon Ivy “Melita Pull-Over Cable Knit Sweater” $68Brixon Ivy Melita Pull-Over Cable Knit Sweater

Verdict – Return

I wasn’t crazy about this color. For some reason I am not in love with the color turquoise.

State Side “Angelica Raglan Top” $68State Side Angelica Raglan Top

Verdict – Return

Oh man, I really wanted to keep this top. It’s pink! But I don’t like the back. I got bummed that I would always have to wear a shirt underneath. Bummer.

Market and Spruce “Carly Graphic Print Cardigan” $78Market and Spruce Carly Graphic Print Cardigan

Verdict – Keep

My stylist knows that I LOVE Aztec print items. Of course I was going to keep this sweater!

Not Shown: Just Black “Banks Skinny Jeans” $78. These jeans were good but they were high rise as in up to my belly button. Definitely not a fan.

Overall, this fix was…

Not my favorite fix. If it wasn’t for the Carly Graphic Print Cardigan, I would have said this fix was a bust. But next time my fix is arriving in March. I have enough winter clothes so I am going to leave a detail note for my stylist on what I am looking for this spring.

This post, and any Stitch Fix posts, are never sponsored. I really do love Stitch Fix and pay for this subscription service with my own money. However, there are referral links in this post and I receive credit if you sign up using my link.

How to Grow Your Blog: Pinterest

Over the past few years Pink on the Cheek has steadily grown, but not to where I would like it to be. Since I have more time to focus on my blog, I am going to do just that. On my journey of growing my blog, I want to help you learn how to grow your blog and make it mutually beneficial!

Pinterest has been my NUMBER ONE source of traffic for as long as I can remember. Based on that information, I am going to spend a lot of time working on Pinterest to keep those numbers going up! Here are the top 3 Pinterest sites I have found to help you grow your blog. Top 3 Pinterest Sites to Grow your Blog

1. Pin Count

You are going to want to bookmark or pin this website. HOLY MOLY, I knew that my post for 8 Free Fonts for Fall was popular on Pinterest but I never knew the exact number. Pin Count for Pinterest

Yes, that is over 15,000 pins for that post. My jaw literally dropped when I saw that number! If that is not encouragement to keep on pinning to Pinterest, I don’t know what will.

2. Pin Source

Bookmark this page: http://www.pinterest.com/source/YOURBLOG

What you will do is enter this information in the URL section of your browser but replace YOURBLOG with your blog’s website. So for example my URL will be: http://www.pinterest.com/source/pinkonthecheek.com

This website will show all of the recent pins that are coming from your blog. This is a great place to see what people are saying about your blog and the pins!

3. ViralTag

This is the mack-daddy of all Pinterest sites. Ever wanted to schedule your pins? Now you can with ViralTag! Don’t be scared off with the monthly fee ($30) after the 7 day trial ends. Since you can have 5 accounts, get your girlfriends together and split the cost each month! Plus the premium account is the only one with unlimited pins! Use this referral link: http://viralt.ag/1ywc6TV and you will get $15 off your first month. I promise you, it’s a must have in your blog arsenal.
