iPhone Business Cards

I wonder if Apple’s business cards are like any of these… I mean, I’m sure they’re not, but they could be. And talk about some serious iPhone dedication. Although I have a feeling these people didn’t think about what would have happen if they handed this to a hardcore Android fan (those don’t exist for Windows phone or Blackberry users). 

My other though on these… do they show your creative or just a copy cat? 

Mini Italian Abode

The house know for being chalk-full of style in only 75 square feet. YEP, that was not a typo. This just makes all those micro-apartments seem like child’s play. 

Although, apparently the owner and creator of this place doesn’t actually live here…. he rents is out to tourists, etc. Which is kind of awesome, but I would be more impressed if someone actually lived here fulltime.

Patterned Settee Makeover

From boring to obnoxiously awesome in one, check that, two fabrics. Anyone else notice how the width of the cushion has some zig-zaggy striped goodness? You don’t have to love this settee, and honestly I would never ever own something like this, but if it doesn’t at least make you simple, then clearly, you’re living in an all black world. 

Is it dark in there?

FYI: settee refurnished byFiber & Fire

iPhone Apps: Food.com

Of course I’m obsessed with this app. Considering my obsession with National Food Holidays, I should have thought of something like this myself!

I love love love that you can mark your favorite days and get reminders…. because heaven forbid you forget an excuse to overindulge in your favorite foods.

And easy access to recipes to help you celebrate! No you don’t have an excuse to waste hours on Pinterest!

Does this app help me be more productive? Absolutely not. Does it completely make my life? Kinda….

The thought of painting a wall black 3/4 of the wall up a wall would have never occurred to me. But thank you Restless Oasis for opening my eyes to a brand new awesome world. 

Simple reason why this is obsession worthy: you get to capture all the drama and elegance that goes with painting walls super dark colors, but you maintain that light airy open feeling. 

Amazeballs (yep, I’m bringing that word back into circulation, unless you can think of a better one)

Acapella by Karmin

Seriously… the amount of time this song spends replaying in my head is enough to drive a person to seek professional help….. BUT thank goodness I love the song so very very much that it doesn’t annoy me at all! 

I love the sick dance moves in the music video and learning all the words in the lyrics video, but that’s not that best part. The best part…. the lyrics. Seriously, this should be the anthem that every girl abides by.

Depressed Cupcake Shop

People who do things like this are incredible. What a smart, simple, delicious way to create awareness for something with such an awful stigma as poor mental health. By now, we’ve probably all seen the Glenn Close and fam commercial, but this approach is something different. Miss Cakehead, the creator of this project, not only creates awareness, but also funds to help those who suffer. Centering the issue around delicious baked goods allows for a simple conversation to be opened. And once we starting talking, the truth is often revealed.

USPS Priority Mail Packaging

Seems like some failing US governement sponsored institution is trying to bring the sexiness back into actually mailing things the old-fashioned way, trying to make the whole mailing thing seem cool and vintage, and trying to attract the hipsters….

No seriously, that’s their goal. The postal service is learning that the younger generations aren’t with program. The younger generation grew up with email, FedEx, UPS… in fact, if you say “USPS” there is a good chance you’ll be corrected.

Anyone, I like it. I think its cool and fun.

POUND. ROCKOUT. WORKOUT.

It’s like a zumba workout mixed with a cardiobox workout mixed with a barre or pilates workout. Which just makes this the most amazingly fun workout in the world. Well, that might be a little bit drastic, but you get my drift. 

It’s a ton of fun, you sweat to death, and by the time it’s over, you wish there was another half hour. Plus, I’ve always had a wanna be drummer somewhere deep down inside me.

National S’MORES Day!!!!!

Well bend me over and slap me silly, it’s the most magical day of the year! And considering my recent confession about Dandies Marshmallows, I am extremely happy about today!

Maybe I’ll celebrate with some Frozen S’mores….

Maybe instead of using marshmallow ice cream, I’ll use s’mores ice cream

Maybe today will be the best day ever…. yeah, that’s the power s’mores can have.

New Zealand House & Garden Magazine

While I am completely enamored with this magazine, I will say, sometimes I forget that their season are opposite of ours, which is why I get confused when they’re showing winter clothes in the May issue.

But all that aside, I am officially in love with New Zealand style decor- not that it’s much different from US. But being on an island, apart from the rest of the world, really makes then focus on items that are created locally. 

The only downside… a subscription to this magazine…. EXPENSIVE. And they are even available on iTunes Newstand. 

BLOGS: House of Harvey

Yeah, the blog is as cool as this sunglass wearin’ pup- named Harvey. What I love about this blog is how well round it is. Some days she pays homage to different breeds and all the things you can buy with their mugs highlighted on them.

Plus, she does a weekly Human/House/Harvey post on Design*Sponge—- one of the decor blogs that I obsess over.  

Plus, her photograph is amazing. And we all know I love pictures way more than words.

Dandies Marshmallows
So this was my main addiction through the month of July. Which is awful since it ended up costing me a ridiculous amount of $$ (which I will never disclose… but let’s just say- actually let’s not say anything). So what’s so special about these?!?!
VEGAN MARSHMALLOWS
Who know it would be such a hard thing to find?? But the local co-op, that wonder world, carries them. And I cleared them out. And not because I’ve been deprived of marshmallows, but because they’re probably the most spectacular marshmallows I’ve ever had.
Screw being air-puffed- they’re AWESOME-PUFFED.
WHOA.
