I saw this on Pinterest and knew immediately I would be using it for today’s post:
Be sure you #YOLO responsibly, kids.
I’ve had the kind of morning where you just wake up and are in a bad mood for no reason. I mean, “because it’s morning and a Monday” is basically no reason, right?
At any rate, I’m linking up with Molly and Carly for today’s #YOLOmonday linkup! Are you linking up? Cause you should. There are no topics or rules about your post content so you pretty much have no excuse not to do this.
I have one thing to show for my weekend and it’s this:
I’d been rocking my polka dot iPhone case for a while, but it had a pretty thick profile so every time I wanted to put it in a dock (basically every time I shower) I had to take the case off. And then I developed a nasty habit of dropping my phone so the case was getting pretty banged up.
I started looking online for cute cases and found this one:
It’s over the top (and I think those nails are scary) but I kind of loved it.
Then I found this tutorial and I knew it was all over.
I ordered the supplies and got to work. It was probably the easiest project I’ve done lately and I think the results are pretty fabulous. I think it looks even better in real life, and, yes, it looked good even before I applied the novelty filters.
This is either your kind of thing or it’s not, so I’ll get it if you’re like “Kate, that’s kind of gaudy.”
The only valid concern that I have is something Katie brought up on my Facebook page – it’s all fun and games until the rhinestones fall off. Since I started using the case, I’ve found rhinestones everywhere. I can’t find any holes on my case where they would be missing so I don’t think they’re falling off… Is it because they got stuck to the case or my hands or clothes by mistake when I was doing the project? Now I used industrial strength e-6000 glue as the tutorial instructed so I hope I won’t have to worry about losing the bling for quite a while. But I promise to keep you updated!

Would you rock a blinged out iPhone case? Or does this give you gypsy-wedding-type anxiety? What did you do with your weekend?
