iPhone Covers

My amazing bf got me the new iPhone 4 for Christmas (mostly because he was sick of hearing about how my sprint phone NEVER worked), I thought how great could this thing be?

It's my new best friend. 

Seriously, it's life changing. 

If you don't have one, then you are really missing out on a little slice of heaven.  My phone is always there for me when I need it, and for that reason, I wanted to give her a cute little new outfit. I've been searching for a cute cover for a while, and recently stumbled upon these hot little numbers from dani notes.

Here are a few more from her store:

la plates is another great store, not only does she have iPhone covers, but she also has monogrammed plates (such a great shower gift idea) paper, stickers, totes, water bottles, and even a kids korner for the little people. 

Last shop for today is lip stick shades, she has TONS of different kinds of covers, but also has great stuff for the house too....

Monogrammed cutting boards, I'll take one please.
And fun personalized place mats for kids, maybe they'll eat their veggies off this, (I might get one for the bf, he's the pickiest)....

Still not sure which cover to get, which one do you like??

Ok now it's time to enjoy my Sunday and spend some quality time with my iPhone boyfriend, have a great weekend!

Thanks for having me Exposed Urban!

I wanted to give a special thanks to Mark DeJoie and Corey Jackson at Exposed Urban for having me as a guest on their blog. Exposed Urban is a really fun website/blog about urban lifestyle and living, be sure to check them out! 

Here is the interview I did talking about some trends in interior design. I was really nervous but thankfully Corey was really sweet and easy to chat with, thank God - I needed someone to calm my nerves! I'm pretty sure I had a cocktail after....(and it may only have been Sunday around 10:30, is that bad?)

To the the wall.

Why is it that we can never figure out what to do with our walls?  It's always so intimidating to stare at a big blank wall and try to fill it with artwork, mirrors, pictures, etc. Then half the time you end up putting up something, taking it down, returning your item back to the store......rewind, repeat, sigh in frustration.  All you've got now is a wall full of nail holes, not very pretty.

Luckily stenciling is back.  Don't worry, I'm not referring to the ugly stencil borders you are thinking of from 1986, now there are so many beautiful stencils out there to give your boring walls a face-lift.

Janell from Isabella and Max Rooms created this amazing stenciled focal wall. To see her step by step instructions, click here, isn't it beautiful? I love the turqouise lamp against the gray wall, such a great pop of color.

Shelly from the House of Smith's did something a little bit different and used this quatrefoil stencil in her pantry.

Here is a fun wallpaper print that Irene from Design Stiles put in her hallway.

I may steal this idea from her.

The possibilites are endless...

Chevron Business cards for me = happy chick.

Why is it the older you get the smallest things in life excite you, like when your kitchen counter tops are spotless, or when the delicious smell of bleach is lingering in your house after a good cleaning? 

I really need to get a life. 

Today is an exciting day for me, I just ordered these amazing Chevron Business Cards.  I found them on Jen Ramos's Made By Girl blog.  I follow way too many a lot of blogs, and she is by far one of my favorites. Be sure to check her out!  

Don't you likey??

I'll be sure to pass these out to every person on the street.

Jen also has an online store with a ton of other products, custom kids art work, posters and prints, canvases, and she occasionally sells stuff from her closet!

This is one of my favorite prints of hers. Pretty much sums up my mornings.

You can find this canvas along with her shop here. Check her out!

I'll be sitting by the mailbox waiting patiently for my present to arrive.....

Dwell Studio for Target = AMAZING.

Did you know that Target now has a line from Dwell Studio and it's absolutely amazing! I'm sorry but I'm a sucker for Target, not only are the prices really reasonable, but the stuff there is really cute and stylish, (and they sell those big hot, delicious pretzels, what? I get hungry). I could spend endless hours walking around and browsing, leaving my coffee cup on every shelf wondering where the heck I just put it.  I also tried very hard not to put anything in my cart (which I was surprisingly successful at that today.)

Here is some amazing stuff I saw there today:

Look at the price! $11 for a lampshade and $16.99 for the lamp, crazy right? 

 Cute throw rugs.
 I'll take all of those please.

 Sorry for the blurred vision, the excitement was getting to me.
 My absolute favorite quatrefoil fabric, I have just a mild obsession with it. Oh, and did I mention this is only $45? Amazeballs.
 Double Amazeballs.

 Sorry, I got excited when I walked down the Blue aisle.

 Fun wall decals. I really wish I invented these.

Such a cute little person chair!
 Excuse me while I try to compose myself here. 
 I may or may not have starting singing in the aisle.

 Some lady tried to stand in front of me while I was taking pictures, don't people know the aisle rules? 
 I'll be back at some point for this pillow.

 Really cute teenager stuff, luckily I don't have one of those yet. 
 How bad do you want this shower curtain?

 I will happily dry the dishes with these towels. Well, let's not get carried away.

 A cute little clothing organizer.
 Anyone that knows me knows I'm a little container obsessed, the other day one of my girlfriends made fun of me because I had to buy a container to hold my granola bars, there is something about opened cardboard tops that gives me anxiety.

 What a beautiful sight.
 They even had really cute stationary too, maybe I'll start writing more notes to people.

 Obsessed with this vase. I'll be back for that too.

I think the employees were a little curious as to why I was taking so many pictures.... I did get some looks at some point when I was on my knees trying to get a good shot.

Target - I love you, thank you for being there for me today, until we meet again. xo
