Weekend Links & Stickygram Cases

First of all, I wanted to share one my current favorite things- my new phone case with some of my Instagram photos on it, courtesy of Stickygram! I was so excited when Stickygram approached me about trying out one of their new cases. If you're tried out Stickygram before you know how easy it is to use, and their "case-maker" is no different. You simply sign into their website, link up your Instagram account, and pull photos right from it. There are numerous layouts you can use, and you're able to change the background color and play with the arrangement before you check out. The whole process took me less than two minutes, and a few days later, I had my bright and cheery new case.

I'm normally a boring case kind of person, but when you think about how much you use your phone, it just makes sense to have a cute one, and more so, have it be a reflection of you! I love that I have my boys' faces right there, and the other day I pulled such a Mom move and showed a fellow gym patron when she asked about my kids. I guess this is the modern day wallet size photo our parents used to keep in those plastic holders.

And good news- outside of their everyday worldwide free shipping, right now Stickygram is offering $5 off of your order- but only until midnight tonight! These make fantastic presents for family members for the holidays too, so be sure to keep grandparents or siblings in mind too. ;)  Here's the one I made:
