As many of you know, Blogger had a serious outage this week, making it impossible to post and comment for nearly 24 hours. Some posts were missing for a while, but as of this afternoon the only thing that hasn't been restored yet are comments made between Wednesday night (Eastern Time) and Thursday afternoon. Hopefully the Google team will be able to dig those up soon. Feed subscribers might experience some déjà vu, but there are already new posts, so hopefully not everything you get in your email will be a repeat.
Other than losing sleep over the state of my blog (needlessly. I had everything backed up), there was more admiring of summer collections. There is more of that to come, in case anyone still needs a new bronzer, but for now, let's have a look at the best of the beauty blogging world:
