DIY Glitter iPhone Skin

I've been wanting a glitter iPhone case for awhile now but never wanted to spend the money... so I decided to make my very own glitter skin. It is definitely a temporary solution (as the glitter tends to rub off slightly), but I love that I would be able to make a few and switch it up whenever the mood dictates.

You'll need:
- a glitter sheet
- scissors
- x-acto knife (and cutting surface)
- pencil
- double stick tape **not shown here
- iPhone

Trace the outline of your phone onto the back surface of the glitter paper using a pencil or other writing instrument.

Cut out the drawn outline, cutting slightly inside the line to prevent it from hanging over the edges.

Lay the cut out onto the phone and trace around the location of the camera and flash holes.

Using the x-acto blade, on a cutting surface, cut out the space around the camera and flash. Lay the finished shape onto the phone to check it fits on all edges - trim where necessary.

Using the double stick tape, adhere the cutout shape to the back of your phone - and voila! It's like an instant make-over for my phone - and it is so easy to make. Go on, give it a try!

** I bought what I thought was a glitter sheet with an adhesive back, but it turned out to be just a plain sheet. So I used double stick tape to adhere the sheet to my phone. However, in the case that you purchase a sheet of glitter with an adhesive back you simple can remove the backing and adhere it directly to the phone.

Color in My Closet: PINK!

I love a good pop of color (or sometimes even more than just a pop) and after a recent spring cleaning on my closet, I decided to share some of my favorite brightly colored items in my closet!

Today I bring you my latest obsession: pink. Although I've been told I loved anything pink when I was a little, there was a quite a number of years where I turned my nose up at anything lighter than a shade of red. And now, suddenly, I can't seem to get enough of every shade of pink in my wardrobe. This is my latest go to outfit - pink plaid button up and my striped pink slippers.

I hope you enjoy my new column :)

Summertime Goal: Learn to Skateboard

Since I've always dreamed of teaching my future bulldog to skateboard (see Tillman) I figured it's time to buckle down and finally learn to skateboard myself! My friend and skateboard designer Carissa has graciously offered to teach me her skills... and now that it is on my blog she's officially on the hook for it! It's one of my many summertime goals - so wish me luck.

I only hope I'm half as cool as this kid.

I probably won't be mastering tricks like this anytime soon. 

So maybe I'll try some mixed doubles! 

And I'm sure there will be plenty of this going on. 

Because seriously, how freakin cute is this for motivation?!

Isn't this handmade leather triple chevron from Rare Bird just the most simple and chic necklace you've seen?! Sadly, it's sold out. But you can get it in gold or with just a single chevron.

And check out all the rest of her cute geometric jewelry here.

Summertime Inspiration

After such amazing warm days last week I'm ready for full fledged summer heat. And not SF summertime.... I would like more than a few consecutive real hot summer days. And this look would be perfect for such warmth :)

Studio Choo

Recently I was introduced to the Studio Choo flower shop while they were doing a pop-up shop at West Elm in Emeryville. I was so amazed by the initial floral arrangements I saw them do (second image) that I went back to visit their pop-up shop this past weekend to get this lovely vase and bouquet for Mother's Day. Isn't it amazing?! I had a hard time giving it up after it sat so lovely on my books for a day - but it made an amazing gift from me and my sister. Love you Mom - we hope you enjoy them for many many days!
