* - * - * - *Hey Lemon Lovers! Kali here of Kaliwood! Kenzie was nice enough to let me take over for her today!
So, is anyone else freaked out by the internet sometimes? Allow me to explain...
I'm going to my cousin's wedding in D.C. next weekend and just realized the invitation says "Black Tie Prefered". I had a moment of panic, because I have a chic cocktail dress to wear, but it's short. But, the idea of a floor-length gown was exciting! (When do you get to wear those, really?) So, I started browsing the internet for gowns.
About an hour later I was doing my usual perusing of Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, etc. And this is what I found in the ads...
Just so you know, that black sheer number from Nordstrom is a dress I was looking at during my online shopping and had clicked on.
How creepy! I felt like Big Brother is watching me! And in case I still needed a dress, but wasn't feeling that one, Facebook also offered me these throughout the day:
And they also know I'm a dog lover!
And then sometimes they get it totally wrong:
(I've been in a relationship for over a year.)
Now, I have my degree in Marketing. So trust me, I get that this is a genius method to do some targeted marketing, and to make the consumer feel as if their internet surfing is a customized experience. But still this weirds me out sometimes!
What about you?? Do you like the customization or do you think little people are watching you from inside your web cam??
Thanks for stopping by today! I would love to have you visit Kaliwood. It's the best place for a little work getaway!
