Having Fun on Fling it Girl!

I thought that today I would share this super cool new social bookmarking place I found called Fling it Girl..only it's more of a bookmarking spot for the online social shopping genre. Kind of like a cross between Kirtsy (<--formerly known as 'skirt'> and Stylehive.

Kary from Fling it Girl left me a message on my poor neglected Stylehive account (click there if you want to follow me on stylehive) inviting me to try it out and suggested I promote my jewelry there. I'm so glad I decided to check my messages at Stylehive that day!

Fling it Girl is super quick and easy to use and looks like great place to check out other products. I've already found this awesome mens diaper bag called the diaper dude. I know my friend who just had a baby is totally going to want this..she was just talking about finding something her husband would carry on his days watching the new kiddo in thier life. He's totally into the Harley Davidson colors even painted his Bronco in with the orange stitching on the charcoal fabric..I think it's a winner!

I really like the simplicity of Fling it Girl. While Stylehive is a totally awesome's a bit overwhelming for me with its major high fashion fun to look at but unatainable goods. With Fling it Girl I was able to get right in there and have some fun within minutes as well as find some items I'm actually interested in. And I like that it's focusing on shopping so I'm not weeding through news articles like on other bookmarking sites. It has different shopping catagories too so you can find ideas on specific things you are looking for. The catagories are fashion, beauty, eco, lifestyle, tech, home, active, offbeat and guy stuff.

I mosied ( do you spell past tense of mosy? is mosy a real word?) on over to Fling it Girl today and saw that one of my posted bookmarks was on the front page today so it made a top! I had to take a screenshot of course :)

here is the 411 on Fling it Girl taken from the 'how it works' link:
