Rifle Paper Co

November 17, 2014





Hi guys! Long time no-blog. Life's been a tad busier than I anticipated so I've been short of free time, lately. I know I still have to post my NYC PT 3 post but knowing I have two-hundred (of just that day) pictures to sift through and edit (which takes a looong time!) means I need a huge chunk of time free and like I mentioned, I don't have tons of those right now. I could edit in batches but I lose my momentum like that and I end up not happy with them. But it's coming! Also, this week, there's a wallpaper haul to be shared!

Back to the picture.

I saw this Clear Rosa, from Rifle Paper Co, available for the iPhone 5s a couple of weeks before I upgraded to the iPhone 6. As much as I liked it, I knew it'd be a waste of money to get it. So... I (not-so) patiently waited for them to release their collection for iPhone 6.  
Two weeks ago I saw pre-orders available and saying they'd start shipping mid November. I went for it and last Friday I got a shipping confirmation and today (Monday) I got it in my hands! It was not packed in a box like the others I've ordered from them but it included a note that explained their boxes are not ready and they understand people want their cases ASAP (we do!) and they rather ship them sans than make people wait. And a 15% code for a future purchase. I'll take it. Who cares about the box?

Anyway, it's beautiful and  it compliments the gold of my iPhone (which looks way better than the yellow 5s).  It's clear all around and it's a teeny-tiny bit raised in the front for those of you that set your phone screen down. 

I LOVE.


In Pink

Last Friday I ordered the Coral Blue Elago Slimfit case. I received it Sunday (yesterday), I didn't even know there were Sunday deliveries, so it's a welcomed surprise! It's a great fit, just like the champagne one, the only difference is this one is a shiny and extra glossy instead of matte. I'm thinking extra fingerprints and scratches? We'll see within a couple of weeks.




At this point you all know I photograph every flower that comes into my house, and these are no exception. The make the prettiest pink gradient. 





Of course, there are wallpapers... 




sized for rMBP, iPad and iPhone 6

NYC PT 2

November 1, 2014


Day two of our NYC trip was spent exploring everything Brooklyn.





 It was an overcast day, which we loved because we do not have those here in Southern California.



I extensively Yelped and Googled for places to eat. Which led me to the number one spot in Brooklyn: Grimaldi's. My friend posted something on her Facebook which led someone to reply with "You must go to Grimaldi's". So we HAD to!



The reviews did not disappoint! There was a 5-10 minute line but it wasn't that bad. The pizza was delicious! I had a plain veggie one and it was one of the best pizzas I've had. Plus, the manager (?) gave us great service because he kept coming by to check out my iPhone 6 Plus (which I've now exchanged for a 6). Since the phone was released two days prior I got a lot of "can I see your phone" or "Ohh look __". .. and no you can't because I'm a tourist and it's easy to run away because I'm lost as is.




Our view from Brooklyn Bridge Park. We walked around and took in the view.❤︎




A ride into the city.



Made it to The Empire State Building to watch the sunset over the city from the top. Just WOW!

After this we were freezing and starving. We walked for blocks (and blocks!) and finally found food! One would assume we were starved for weeks as a part of a scientific experiment or something. We're not used to walking so much to "earn" our food lol.. I had a veggie bowl and it was the most delicious thing in the world. I'm sure it was my hunger fooling me. lol 
Overall it was an amazing second day!

I've resized a couple of these images to fit the iPhone 6. I've zipped them up for you guys.
