Phone makeover

It's hot out, your hands are a greasy mess from sunscreen and fries, and your phone looks rank with all the fingerprints glistening in the sunlight. Time for a phone makeover!

Wipes

So you can freely answer your calls and not freak out over all the germs touching your face. And the lavender scent is very calming, especially while you are hate-reading the latest internet drama.

Cases

You will drop your phone. Don't gamble, give your phone a little jacket instead.

Hi weekend!

Dear weekend, so glad you're almost here. Wish you could come around more often.

And this weekend is Father's Day, which means quality family time! So glad we get to celebrate our awesome dads. However, when it comes to creative gifts, I find that dads are impossible to shop for. So our dads get food, beer and work-out clothes - might be boring, but that's what they would actually use. Shopping for moms is way more fun!

Now, here are some pretty things I liked this week.

Happy Valentine's Day. I don't really care much for the holiday itself (it was way more fun in elementary school) but there are so many cute things available right now in my favourite colour PINK!

Jack's Wife Freda

Jack's Wife Freda is my favourite restaurant. I always visit (often more than once) whenever I'm in New York. So what do I love about it?

1. Food

I'm so excited that they are releasing a cookbook! Soon, I'll be able to recreate all of the fresh and delicious recipes by myself and host lots of brunch parties.
