My Favorite Things Thursday

Silly Happy Sweet

I'm excited to launch my new linky party called My Favorite Things Thursdays! I'm amazed by all of your blogs. You inspire me! You keep me up-to-date on what is new in fashion, household products, recipes, nail polish brands, and so much more. It got me to thinking that we all have those favorite products that we tell our closest friends about, and since we're all cyber-friends, we should do the same! I have two previous posts here and here with some of my other favorite things.

So......drumroll please.

My latest obsession (and if you are a follower of mine on Pinterest you are probably already aware) is chevrons. I have been looking for a new iPhone case and stumbled upon Zazzle. If Zazzle has been around awhile and I'm late on the Zazzle train, forgive me. They have the largest iPhone case selection I've ever seen!

Lately I really love the orange/aqua combo. This case on Zazzle was $39.95. That is expensive for a case but I justified it by telling myself that even more than my purse, my iPhone case is with me all the time. I look at it all the time. I want something I like love. (I look like I'm falling asleep below. Must be an exciting conversation!)

Speaking of phones, I saw this somewhere--Facebook or Pinterest--I can't recall. If you take a picture of your contact with their face pressed against glass and set it as their contact picture, when the phone rings, it will look like they're trapped in the phone. My kids recently saw Honey I Shrunk the Kids so I was able to fool MiniB that Brian was trapped in the phone. It was pretty funny!

AH! What a great iPhone case. It's always so fun to flip your cover over to something creative :)

Your new case IS cute. My friend designs monogrammed ones, but if I ever decide to switch it up I'll check out zazzle.

What did we do before the iphone???

Lissa said...

That case is awesome! And I am so trying the "trapped"contact thing. :)

Cute! I'm going to get a new phone soon (sorry...we are an Android family) but I'm more excited about the case than the actual phone. LOL.

I am DYING about the trapped in the phone thing. So funny!

I love that iPhone case and am 100%on the chevron bandwagon! I was trying to get a post ready to link today and it just didn't happen! Will be better prepared next week :)

LOL! That is so funny! I might ask my hubby about doing the same but I doubt if he would do it...he is a "kill-joy" most of the time. That phone case is really cute too. But I use Blackberry and I tried putting a case for it once and it just got too bulky, I eventually took it off anyway.

I'm obsessed with your phone cover! I also love the idea of putting the photo of someone like they are stuck in your phone.

I love the "pressing your nose against a glass" tip for your phone contact - how cute!

Shelby@ My Perfectly Imperfect World said...

Thanks for the link up Carolyn! I keep looking for a cute cover for my phone but I have a Droid and they just don't make them as cute as they do for the iPhone!
