Spreaker Broadcasting: Online Radio Broadcasting for Anyone!

Spreaker Online Radio is a website dedicated to broadcasting anyone's radio show for free!
I created an account(free) and messed around for a little bit.
My first radio show:
High Notes

I gotta say that this website is good. There are limits to the free membership but you can always upgrade to any of the other 3 different levels of membership. Included in the free membership: 128kbit/sec (standard for all members), unlimited bandwidth, unlimited amount of listeners, 20 hours of audio storage, and 30 mins for live broadcast. Not included in free membership: no ads on profile/show pages, use of external broadcast tools, use of branded commercials and advanced audience analytics.

I liked this so much that I will be posting more broadcasts! Stay tuned!

New Hello Kitty Collection at Sephora!

Hello Kitty Mon Amour Collection at Sephora was just released for spring 2012 and I got to say So Kawaii!

"Paris in the springtime is the stuff of daydreams—so what better time for the jet-setting Hello Kitty to embark on a romantic holiday. The Hello Kitty Mon Amour collection invites you to lose yourself in the delicious macaroon-inspired pastels, all encased in the most charming, whimsical packaging featuring fanciful illustrations of Parisian landmarks….from Paris with love."

This collection includes Parisienne Palette (eyeshadow and blush compact) $36USD

Mon Amour Palette (eyeshadow and blush) $36USD
Hello Kitty Nail Art Stickers in Metallic and Half Moon $5USD each

 I think this collection is cute but it's not my favorite. I absolutely love the makeup bag! If you have purchased something from this collections, please leave a comment about what you got and how much you love or hate it.
