Dollar Tree Iphone Cases?!?

As you all know I have been an avid Android user now for the past two years. Android is amazing! However, I am the type of person who likes to try new things so I will be switching to an iphone sometime within the next month if not sooner if all goes well. Most likely I will be getting a 4 or 4s being as I have watched many reviews that said the iphone 5 isn't much different than the 4s, so being that the 4s is alot cheaper I will be going with that one or the 4 which ever works out better for me when I go in to make my switch.

Now the reason for this post is I wanted to show you a few cases that I picked up tonight at the dollar tree of all places! I have saw these in my dollar tree for awhile now but never picked them up until now because I wasn't for sure which phone I wanted to go with when I did my upgrade. So, tonight I picked up four cases, they had a few more but these were my favorites, and I picked up a screen protector. I also have a little stand that also came from the dollar tree and a charging docking station that I got a few months ago to use on my ipod, it will of course now work to charge my iphone when I get it. So, if you have an iphone you may wanna check out your local dollar tree for some really cute cases and accessories!

The baby pink case and the blue case have flip out stands built in so you can set your phone up to watch videos etc..I thought that was so cool! These types of cases are going for $10 or more on ebay right now!


This is a black case, which is plastic and then the screen protector with also a protector to go over the back of the phone.

I love the pink polka dot one! They had a black case with white polka dots at one time but my store didn't have anymore of those. Like I said the plain pink and blue case have flip out stands built in the back of them. They also had this particular style of case in white and also a black one but I just picked these up for now because I will be ordering at least two more right away from ebay so this should do me for awhile. lol

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know if you have seen these at your dollar tree and if your store has any different ones or not. Have a great Friday and a safe weekend!

How the Pros Paint Nails....

Found this diagram on Pinterest and thought I would post it here. I for sure do not paint my nails like this but would love to start trying to do so. It looks so much more polished and put together. Thought you guys might like to see it as well if you haven't seen it on Pinterest by now. 
You can click on the diagram pic to make the picture larger if your having a hard time seeing what the directions are because of the font size. 

See ya soon!

Things Facebook Won't Tell You

Things Facebook Won't Tell You: 
*Taken from a Reader's Digest Article in Feb 2013 edition*

1. Want to know how much facebook knows about you? Go to Account Settings menu and click DOWNLOAD A COPY OF YOUR FACEBOOK DATA. Small print.

2. You may not want to share your updates and other personal information with the whole world, but they keep the default setting as PUBLIC. It's better for them if you share more, and they are assuming that most of us aren't going to bother to change our privacy settings.

3. You may not see every post from your friends, and only a fraction of your friends may see all your updates. Facebook wants users to see posts that will keep them on the site the longest, so it moves up the posts that are the most liked, shared, and commented on.

4. If you are signed in to facebook we track you while you surf the internet. Anytime you visit a page that has a Facebook LIKE or Share button, they log that information.

5. If your posts are set to be Public, burglars can see your status updates and figure out when your not in town. Insurance companies may also use posted information to raise a premium or deny a claim.

6. Posting big news like your engagement, the birth of a baby, or your acceptance to grad school? Facebook will know. They target those types of announcements by using something called natural language processing, and then they make sure they stick around in your friends' news feeds until the next time they log on.

7. It may work to your benefit for them to know alot about you. For instance, if you LIKE the Gap facebook page because you shop there, you will appreciate it when a coupon pops up.

8. Not seeing enough posts from friends you care about and too many from those you don't? Set your news feed to sort by Most Recent, rather than Top News. Then add your favorite people to your close friends list and unsubscribe from any friends whose updates your not interested in receiving.

9.They make money by selling ad space to companies that want to reach you. They give them demographics, the desired location, career, education level and they put their ads on the pages of those who meet the criteria.

10. If you really want to make sure your friends see your important news, you can pay a fee, around $7 to $10 a post, to move your update to the top of their news feeds.

11. Lots of users hate the Timeline, but it's not going away anytime soon. It's a more effective way for people to share, it's visually appealing and the brands love it because it gives them a better platform to market their business and show people who they are.

12. You can limit your posts to Facebook friends who live in your city, those who went to your college, or those you work with. You can even choose to allow everyone to view a post except your boss. Click the arrow in the lower right hand corner of the status update box, and you will see all the options.
