Envicase: A New Social Media for Fashion and Beauty

Originally posted on Written in the Cosmets:
Hey lovlies, I don’t usually do posts on apps but this past weekend I have fallen in love with this one called Envicase. Currently it is only available for iphones but it will be released to android in the future. What is it? It is a new mobile application in which users connect with each other through the items they own,sharing stories,providing useful shopping tips, and “envying” one another. I know the word envy makes it seem kind of snobbish but let me tell you it is not! It’s a great tool for discovering new items. You post a picture, say where you bought it and the price! I am in love but I don’t think my wallet will be in a few months haha Check it out and add me, inthecosmets ! Thanks for reading — xxoo Corinne Facebook Instagram Twitter Tsu ?

How I use the 5-Star rating system on Goodreads

Most book reviewers believe in some way that rating all books on the same scale of 1 to 5 is messy. For example, what am I supposed to do when I just read a really good fantasy book that is nothing like any of the literary fiction picks that dominate my shelves? What do those five stars even MEAN? Why are there only five? Why is rating books even important? Over time I stopped putting 1 to 5 ratings on my blog reviews, because I think the definition of what those stars mean varies too much from person to person. What I use the star ratings for is very specific and probably doesn’t matter much to most of my readers. On goodreads, when you’re asked to give your review, you can mouse over the stars and see what each tier is supposed to mean: One star is “did not like it” Two stars is “it was ok” Three stars is “liked it” Four is “really liked it”…
