iPhone 4.

When I first held iPhone 4, I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I loved the body of my iPhone 3Gs. Then I put all my apps in folders and saw my organized screen. And I noticed how bright & shiny the screen was. I started to like iPhone 4. And that like quickly turned to love.

Photobucket

Before we discuss what this lovely little thing can do, let's look at how nice and organized all my apps are. You know that I loved creating these little folders, right? Because I did. I would like to point out that these folders are available to anyone that updates their iPhone software, so one of my favorite features isn't even exclusive to this phone. But the folders look better on iPhone 4's dynamic screen. So there you go.

Photobucket

Don't you love how organized everything is? I do.

You can now resize photos sent via email. Love that. And rather than check multiple email accounts {I have 4 gmail accounts and a .mac account} you can click on "all inboxes" and see all your new emails in one place. Nice.

Apps open at a speed unlike anything I have ever seen. It is pretty incredible.

The camera is fantastic. It has a flash & zoom and you can choose to take a photo of yourself or whatever is in front of you because there are cameras on both sides of the phone. You can also shoot in HD video. So I can shoot a video of myself {in HD, of course} and post it to my blog. I don't know that I will actually do that, but I can if I want to.

One of my favorite features is the fact that you can multitask with this phone. By double clicking the home button you can quickly switch between apps, and pick up where you left off without having to close each app. So, so smart.

The video chatting feature is fun, but there is one downfall. You must be connected to wifi to video chat. My sis and I tried it out, and it was pretty cool. If I didn't already have 2 mac computers to video chat on, I'm sure I would find this feature a lot more remarkable. For someone that has an iPhone and doesn't have a mac computer, this is a great feature. Because I need to be connected to wifi, I cannot imagine using this when I can use my laptop or desktop.

AT&T really needs to set up video chatting through 3G. It is a service thing and not a phone issue {I asked at the Apple store}. Get with it, AT&T.

My photography folder.

I have not played with the iMovie app, but I did purchase it. The idea of having iMovie on my phone for $4 just seemed too good to pass up. I love that you can shoot a video in HD, edit the video on your iPhone, and then upload to youtube. Amazing. I have no idea when I will actually find the time or energy to do this, but I can. And that's what matters.

When it comes down to it iPhone 4 is a faster, prettier, streamlined version of 3Gs, and I definitely recommend it.

And it's cooler than Droid or any other touch screen wanna be iPhone.

Tacky Tuesday is back in full force.

Thanks to none other than the tacky {and douche-tastic} Jon Gosselin. Because the chain smoking and Ed Hardy attire wasn't enough, he had to go off and do this.

It's like a permanent Ed Hardy shirt etched on his back. Tacky tacky tacky.

Guess who isn't completely translucent anymore?

As you probably know, my legs are so white that they'll burn a hole in your eyes if you look directly at them a little pale. I have tried everything except laying in the sun or going to a tanning salon. Because that would be stupid.

Last summer was the summer of spray tans. Not worth it. $$$

This summer, I needed something that would allow me to wear my new denim shorts. I have officially declared the summer of 2010 the summer of Jergens Natural Glow Express Body Moisturizer. I have been using this on my legs so they don't look so freakishly white, and it works. I do not have the color that I had with spray tanning, but that isn't really what I was going for this time around. I have learned to embrace the fact that I am pale, but I just don't want to glow in the dark. My sister said that I actually pass for a normal person now.

The bottle of the express moisturizer is smaller than the original one and more expensive {$8-$9 per bottle} but it works quickly. You will have some color in just 2 days, so it is definitely worth it. I am just about done with my first bottle, and will be buying a few more.

Photobucket

Under $10 and I can wear shorts and dresses without blinding anyone. I like it.

Halfway there.

I love June 25th because it marks a wonderful little halfway point in the year.


Yes, we are halfway to Christmas. If you want to get technical, all the decorations come out at the end of October so we are actually only 4 months away from all the holiday cheer. And I just love holiday cheer.

I get a little Buddy the Elfish around the holidays. I love the decor, the music, and how happy & festive everything is. I'm the girl that starts playing Christmas music the second all the decor goes up, and I listen to it throughout the entire season. And maybe a little after that, too.


I even watch those cheesy Lifetime Christmas movies. But only sometimes. Because sometimes they're good. Don't judge. You know you do it too.

The photo above {right} makes me want an iron bed so I can hang stockings at the foot of the bed. You simply cannot do that with an upholstered bed.

What's your favorite thing about the holiday season?

iPhone 4 is here.

Photobucket
People are lined up all night long waiting for this thing. I want one. I really do. But that just isn't my style. I know this might come as a shock to you since I am a self proclaimed apple whore, but {I realize this may sound bad} I do not do lines. I'll wait for a bit, but 6+ hours? Overnight? No thanks.

I was supposed to get on a VIP list for tomorrow, but it is reserved for celebs and there were not enough extra phones to get me on the list. Sad. Times like this I think being famous wouldn't be such a bad thing.

Anyway, Sunday is my big day. Expect another one of my fabulous reviews, and then write the people at Apple to tell them how I should blog for them. Because I am pretty sure I convinced a few people to run out and buy an iPad. And chances are, my iPhone 4 review will do the same thing.

Are you getting the new iPhone 4?

6.23.2010

Am I REALLY doing this?!

I guess I really am all about change these days. I have been talking about this for a while, and somehow got the courage to book a hair appointment for next week. If all goes well, I will look a little something like this.

I know I won't be as cute as KH, but hopefully I can pull it off.

Holy &@$%

Upholstered or iron headboard?

I currently have this upholstered headboard in a sandy linen color.


I could have a new slipcover made {maybe in a fun print} or I could sell it and get this iron headboard instead. I would probably make money on the deal since the iron one is so inexpensive.
There are some positives to an iron headboard. Cats can't climb it, I believe it would take up a bit less space {not much, but in my teeny tiny apartment every inch of space counts} and I love the look.

I am obviously leaning toward the iron one, but would love to know what you all think!

6.21.2010

What's next?

With this life altering move creeping up on me, I have been thinking a lot about what I should do next. I have created my own little business {key word -- little}, but I feel like I am ready for something bigger and to be quite honest, I need to make more money. I love the people I work with and I do not want to give up blog design. I would just love for my blog design business to be my on the side business. I have felt this way for a while now.

I have a lot of dreams and what feels like a ton of options. I am sure some of the things I will mention in this post aren't really options, but I do think about them. We all know how well I do with decision making, so I am {surprise, surprise} completely overwhelmed.

I have always wanted my own stationery/print line. I had a line of handmade cards that I sold in a few local shops years ago, but wouldn't want to design handmade cards again {way too time consuming}. I know nothing about letterpress, but having a letterpress line like this one has been a dream of mine for a long time. I wonder if I could get a position with Snow and Graham. They are located in Chicago, so maybe that's a sign. I cannot imagine having a really successful print line and feel like there isn't much of a chance of that happening.


I think about taking design classes all the time. I majored in Sociology and feel like I have a lot to learn.

I would love to open up my own little shop. Something kind of like Paper Source, but different. That store is the closest comparison I have to what I want to do. I can't go in to details, because I don't need anyone taking my ideas. This is a little too scary considering where the economy is right now, but it is on my dream list.

I also have another idea but can't tell you what it is. The few friends that know about it love it, but it would require a significant amount of start-up capital. Too scary.

I would love to write a book. I actually wrote a series of childrens books years ago {they need lots of fine tuning} but they are kind of cute. We'll see. Not that I believe in such things, but I once saw a psychic who told me that I would be published one day. Whatever.

I know nothing about photography, but would love to learn more. I definitely wouldn't mind doing a few photo shoots each month, but know that I have a lot to learn first. I would also love to learn to make actions and textures. The thought of that overwhelms me more than the thought of designing digital scrapbook kits overwhelmed me a year ago. I am trying to convince myself that if I try I can do it, because I was sure that I'd never learn to design scrapbook kits, and we know how that turned out.

Photobucket

The digital scrapbook line is the perfect side business. It's fun and sales are slowly increasing each month! I am going to work on promoting this line a bit more {with a newsletter, sales, ads, etc} and we'll see how that goes. If this line can grow, that would be amazing. I have basically been doing next to nothing, so I'm sure promoting would help. Scrap Matters recently assigned a mentor to me to help with these things {very exciting}.

I almost went to FIDM to study interior design years & years ago, but wasn't ok with paying all that money to end up with a 2 year degree. I also really doubted that I could do it {still do}. I think I have a pretty good eye and I like to think I have good taste, but doubt that I can actually put things together. Maybe working as an assistant/intern would help. I don't know. It is something I have always loved.

The OCD side of me thought I would become a professional organizer. I can organize anything. Back in high school when I first met my friend Jaclyn, I went over to her house, walked in to her room, and told her the setup was all wrong. I ended up rearranging all her furniture that day and it looked so much better once I was done. Whenever I walk into a space, I look at how it can be more functional and disorganized spaces drive me crazy. If I showed you my bedroom right now you would not believe that I was an organized person, but I really am. I've been sick, so it doesn't count. I feel like organizing could lead to some design, too. Something to consider.

I always thought event planning would be fun, but most events are on the weekends, and I don't want to work weekends so that's out.

I loved working in entertainment, and my old bosses are planning on putting me on their next project. If it went well and I could take on a few films each year, that would be amazing. I loved that job, and was good at it. Still so sad that the last project didn't work out, but it wasn't meant to be. I would be thrilled to work for them again, and divide myself between entertainment, blog/graphic design, and maybe a little photography & home organization, too. I am all about having 5 different jobs. I get bored pretty easily, so I'd love to mix things up a little bit. After the huge let down a few weeks ago, I am doubtful that this will actually happen, but I would be thrilled if it did.

I thought about getting a license {or whatever it is I would need} to teach spin classes {or something else} because even though I wouldn't make much, I would be getting paid to work out, would likely get a free membership, and I would literally have to work out. Seems productive & efficient enough. I also used to think about becoming a personal trainer/nutritionist.

I feel like I am not cut out for a 9-5 job working for someone else, but have lots of moments where I think I am kidding myself thinking that I can make it on my own. I know if I had to do it I could since I have done it before, but I really don't want to work for someone else. I always think about finding a more traditional job because I love the idea of benefits etc... but then I think that I should give myself a little more time since my business is still relatively new. I want to give one {or more} of these options a try, but it's a little overwhelming. My plan is to figure all this out by the time I'm 30. I have 2 years and {just under} 3 months. Time to get moving.

Am I the only person that has thought about having a million different careers?

Do you have a dream job? Do you already have your dream job?

It's all happening.

I finally got out for a little bit today after one of the worst colds I have ever had. I had something very important to do.

I bought this sofa, in a fantastic white linen {fabulously textured} fabric.


It is slipcovered & machine washable. And it's white, so I can bleach it. I have a feeling I'll be doing a lot of that. It isn't an English roll arm or a sleeper sofa but it is half the cost of both, so go with it.

I had this sofa shipped to my new apartment.

In Chicago.

My new watch.

I have been wanting a white ceramic watch for a while now. My favorite watch {by Chanel, of coruse} is $5000. Just a little out of my price range. Never going to happen. Obviously.

I had my sights set on finding an affordable version. I have a cold & have been very run down, but couldn't miss the private sale at Bloomingdales. For every $100 you spend, you save $25. In addition, you get a $15 gift card for every $100 spent. The only catch is that the gift cards have to be used within a one week period, starting on June 18th. Tomorrow is the last day of the sale! You just have to have a Bloomingdales card {or a mom with a card that gives you her coupons}.

Anyway, with this sale came my new Michael Kors watch. It was the most reasonably priced one that I had seen so far, and I got a fantastic deal on it.

Love.

My kind of town.

The past few days were kind of a blur. Friday night, I went to dinner at Coast, and then a bar/club afterward. I am not much of a drinker, so after 2 glasses of wine and 2 more drinks on top of that, I was a little buzzed. For the most part I {sort of} remember what happened {and nothing happened}. Unfortunately, I remember calling my mother. After 4 drinks. Fortunately, my mom takes these things pretty lightly and thought my call was hilarious.

My mom has decided that we need a code word so once I am living in Chicago I can text her and let her know I am home safely every night. Because that won't get old.

I had my {slightly} hungover apartment tour on Saturday morning, which was especially fun. I walked in, asked if I was allowed to take photos and proceeded to take one photo of the kitchen {the one room that doesn't need any furniture}, didn't measure anything, and left. But I absolutely loved the apartment! The tour was followed by lunch in Bucktown and then a very low key night that consisted of ordering food from Irazu {the vegetarian burrito is so good!} and watching a few episodes of Weeds.

Photobucket
Old Town Art Fair

Sunday, I went with a friend and a group of her friends to the Old Town Art Fair. We walked around a little, ordered some {ridiculously overpriced} drinks, got rained on, and saw Vince Vaughn. I should really eat before 2:00, and should probably not have drinks on an empty stomach. Lesson learned.

Then we went here --

Photobucket

I am not a sports fan but had a great time at my first Cubs game! It started to rain, so some random guy let us borrow a Shamu poncho. You will also notice I am wearing 2 different hats. In the first photo, I am wearing the hat I borrowed from my friend, and in the second photo, I am wearing my new Cubs hat. Because I needed one.

Great seats!

Monday, I went to lunch with a friend and walked around downtown a little bit. It was cool and rainy, so I treated myself to a skinny cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks. It has been forever since I had one. We also went back to the new apartment so I could take measurements and photos.

I am now back in LA. Again. That trip went by way too fast, and I am absolutely exhausted.

My thoughts on humidity.

I experienced my first humid day in Chicago yesterday. We were going to head to the Blackhawks parade until we turned on the news and saw this --


Just a little too crowded for me. There were cops on ATVs crashing in to people.

I ended up spending the day in K's air conditioned apartment. It was too hot to suggest walking around, and with the madness of that parade, there was no way we were going to go downtown.

The moisture in the air didn't really bother me, and since I do the Brazilian straightening treatment my hair looked pretty good. It was the heat that killed me. I complain if it's above 80. Not a fan of heat under any circumstances. I think the humidity makes it warmer. I don't know. It's hot and I don't like it. It is currently 86 but feels like 92. Grossssss. Too hot for me.

But I still love Chicago. Even though it will be 79 degrees at 10:00 tonight.

We are heading out for sushi soon and tomorrow I will see the new apartment with my friend Crystal, and then spend the day {and night} with her. We are going to go out on the town with my friends tomorrow night. Can't wait!

I also have some fun things planned for Saturday. It's going to be a great weekend.

Sooooooo not ready to leave on Monday. Sad.

Back in the Chi.

I arrived in Chicago on Wednesday evening. Had to have a little fun with hipstamatic while I was in the air. I love this app.
Photobucket

I was told to skip taking the cab to my friend's condo and to head directly to the bar for the Blackhawks game. That's hockey, for those of you who share my lack of interest in sports.

Chicagoans really love Chicago. They sing a song every time the team scores a goal, so you can imagine that everyone went insane when the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1961. Horns honking, people cheering, fireworks...the whole 9 yards. It was madness.

Photobucket

Thursday was fantastic. I met Taylor for lunch, and then walked downtown {in a dress and gladiator sandals -- love it!} to meet up with the friend I'm staying with {K}. We have to run a quick errand, and I get a text from my other friend {A} who says she's on a patio drinking margaritas, and asks us to come join. So we do.

I was supposed to meet Alaina and Crystal for dinner/drinks that night, but after only eating a salad and some almonds all day and then downing a very strong drink & a half, I was kind of a tipsy hot mess. Only not so hot. There was no way I was getting out of there in time to change and put myself together. Sad I missed it, but I get to spend Saturday with Crystal, and I know I'll have plenty of time to meet Alaina later on.

Thursday night was kind of perfect. Spontaneous and fun. K and I ended up hanging out with one of A's friends the rest of the day/night. I love that every time you go out, you make a new friend in this town. We went to a late dinner which involved some white wine and a delicious vegetarian burrito. So good. After dinner, we took K's dog to a dog park, and then hung out on her rooftop & talked for 2 hours or so. We finally called it a night at 12:30 or 1:00.

I heart Chicago in the {almost} summer.

Photobucket

Side note. I haven't faced any humidity yet. When I ask people if it's as bad as everyone says it is, they all say yes. I'm a little nervous, but I'll bet there are some creepers out there who love humidity. Maybe I'll be one of those people.

This photo makes me sad. Say it isn't so...

A little shopping.

While running errands this week, I somehow ended up in a dressing room at Madewell. I bought this t shirt, and another tank that I couldn't find on their website. And let's face it. I am way too lazy to photograph the tank myself. It is bright orange/red. Kind of like Essie's Geranium.

Photobucket
I love this color. And I really love a slouchy pocket tee.

I wandered in to JCrew and ended up finding some pretty fantastic things! JCrew has some really cute scarves on sale right now. Normally priced at $52, and on sale for $20! I never find deals like that. I picked up 2 scarves. One pictured below, and the other is a navy tie-dye.

Photobucket
I wasn't really a hat person. Until now.

Photobucket

This shirt is so cute on. As I mentioned, I have a thing for slouchy pocket tees. I went one size up so it would be a little loose, and it is the perfect shirt. It is currently on sale for $24, so I got it in a few colors. Love it.

And my best find? A long nude colored tank from H&M to wear under a James Perse dress that I bought a year ago and couldn't wear because it is a little too sheer. I am so excited to finally be able to wear it!

Aunt Rose is awesome.

My mom, Jess, and I took a trip to Target today. After Target, we went to pick up my 91 year old great aunt Rose to have a BBQ and watch the Laker game at my mom's house. I called Rose on my cell to ask her if she could be ready in five minutes. She said no. I asked if seven minutes would be ok and she said yes. I was kidding, but it worked.

She got in the car and said "I wasn't dressed because I had a little bit of a calamity. The calamity was that I was in the kitchen and had to boil water. I had a certain dish and all of a sudden the dish exploded."

The conversation continued...

My mom: Is it ceramic?
Rose: I don't know. I'll find out what ceramic is.
Jess: Don't you have a tea kettle?
Rose: The tea kettle is another calamity.

We get to the house and sit down in the living room. I went and got my iPad so I could show it to Rose.

Rose: What is that?
Me: It's like a little computer.
Rose: Do you put it on the wall?
Me: No.
Rose: Are you selling those?
Me: Haha. No.

Flipped over the iPad and showed her a clip of The Holiday. Her reply?
Her lips are moving. You aren't pushing any buttons.

A few other funny statements:
Is Joe expected early? Because I didn't wear a bra.

This fellow that lived next door came to see me and we had a long conversation.

Sex and the City 2 movie review.

Warning. If you haven't seen SATC and plan to see it, you should skip this post!!

I finally saw Sex and the City! It wasn't a good movie by any means, but it was a decent "episode" of SATC. The more I think about it, the more I realize how awful this movie really was when compared to the brilliance of the show.

I have a theory about both SATC movies. Ready for it?
If we were not as crazy about these girls as we are, the movies would suck.

Great theory, right? But really -- because we love these girls, we cannot possibly not enjoy spending another 2 hours with them. Even when the story line is a cheesy, some of them {you know who} are getting a little too old for their antics, and we have to watch a painfully long singalong. The show was amazing. Why that cannot translate to the big screen is beyond me. Sometimes, I think that I just enjoy the excitement of seeing everyone again.

But on some level, I loved the movie. But maybe it was just seeing the girls. Way to mess with my head Michael Patrick King.

Things I did not like about the film
The fact that Miley Cyrus made an appearance. She annoys me.
The crown that Carrie wore to Stanford's wedding. What was that?
The singing/dancing scenes were way too long.
Sam sleeping with the guy at the wedding. She's old now. It isn't funny anymore.
Sam isn't really Sam anymore.
Miley Cyrus played herself yet Penelope Cruz played someone else. Didn't sit right with me.
Liza's rendition of Single Ladies. She is WAY too old to sing that song.
Charlotte's nanny. Who hires a 20 something girl that doesn't wear a bra?
Sam being berated in the market. Too much.
Sam getting arrested and the girls getting kicked out of the hotel.
There were some ridiculously over the top outfits.

Carrie looks a little fabulous. The other girls look like they got dressed at an 80s circus.
{source}

My least favorite thing
This poster. Where is Kim Cattrall? Way to go crazy in Photoshop.


Favorite things about the film
Aidan. I love him. Wasn't crazy about the story line there, but I do love Aidan.
Stanford's big gay wedding. So ridiculous that I couldn't not love it.
Carrie and Big's apartment. Kind of fabulous.
The big black ring.
The flashbacks at the beginning.
Carrie's closet.

And my absolute favorite thing
Max Ryan aka Rikard {Samantha's second love interest}. He is so handsome that I could barely look at him. I think he is better looking than George Clooney. And he has an accent.


There is talk of a third film. This time, in London. In the words of Tim Gunn...this worries me.

In the end, I loved seeing the girls, but didn't really love either movie. They should really consider going back to the basics. We fell in love with the girls in NY. I didn't need the fanciness of Abu Dhabi {which was actually Morocco made to look like Abu Dhabi} in this film, or Mexico in the first one. Just give me an episode of SATC, throw in something funny, maybe a little drama, and I'm good. But no singalongs please. No one enjoys a singalong.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame (Season 2)
The girls finally drag Carrie out after her breakup with Big. She ends up dating the new Yankee, but quickly ends things when she realizes that she is not at all over Mr. Big.

Later that day, I got to thinking about relationships.

But the most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well that's just fabulous." - Carrie

Laser therapy & diet supplements.

I paid for laser therapy and a diet supplement today. But before you go getting all judgmental, you should know that these were not purchased for me.

They were purchased for my dog.

Photobucket

Yes. You read that right. My dog. He's very "LA", you know.

Don't judge the pup. He was hit by a car, brought to a shelter, picked up by a rescue organization where I adopted him, had many many bandage changes, re-broke his leg, and then had a very expensive knee surgery followed by a million more bandages.

He needs to lose a few lbs {current weight -- 11.7 lbs} and has a soft tissue problem with a front leg. Two rounds of laser therapy and 10 days of cage rest {so, so fun for everyone involved} and he should be good as new. Beats another very expensive surgery and two months of cage rest.

He isn't fancy. He just has issues.
