Where to Find Cute Android Cases

I like to collect phone cases. I see them as an extension of my style, and I often switch them out to match my outfits, the season, or whatever suits my fancy. They’re a great way to show off my personality in a device that’s integral to our everyday lives.

My Favorite Things: August 2015

My Favorite Things is a monthly blog linkup for all the things you love, hosted by Eirene and yours truly. Eirene’s spearheading this month’s collection while I’m on a short vacation, so head over to her entry and send your faves in! We’ve decided to keep the linkup open for two weeks. That’s plenty of time to write up and post to submit.

Here’s what I’ve been loving the past month. <3
