iPhone 6 Cases from Zazzle: $25 Giveaway!

Zazzle Giveaway

If you’re not familiar with Zazzle, the best way I can describe it is a playground for the artistically enticed. Basically, independent artists open mini-stores within Zazzle and offer their art for purchase in selected categories… t-shirts, pillows, stationary and greeting cards, tech accessories, you name it.

And just in time for the anticipated release of the iPhone 6, Zazzle has a huuuuge selection of iPhone 6 cases, ready to pre-order for that new little bundle of joy. There is everything from the artistic to the girly, the grungy to the sophisticated, the amusing to the masculine. So many in fact, that it can be a bit overwhelming due to the sheer number of choices.

(that’s a lot of cases)

I began my quest for the perfect iPhone 6 case, starting with the big picture…all of the cases. Initially I was mesmerized, but 15 minutes and 5 pages out of 6,829 into it, I thought there must be a better way to go about this. Luckily, Zazzle is on their A-game as far as searchability goes.

I began by narrowing down my options with the search tool, refining by subject and style and eventually key words. That really helped. zazzle-giveaway

I also started saving my potential pics in a “Wishlist”. iphone-6-cases

I liked that there is an easy way to view the other items the artist had available with the particular artwork I am interested in. So theoretically, you could have an iPhone 6 case that matches your t-shirt, that matches your throw pillow, that matches your coffee mug. Heck, why not?! zazzle-iphone-6-case-related

During the process, I had to leave on an errand, so I thought I’d try the Zazzle app on my iPhone. I have to say, its one of the best brand/shopping apps I’ve ever used. It matches the cool factor of the full site in both functionality and design. Its easy to use and very interactive to make the whole experience pretty darn fun.

I settled on this sliver polka dot case because I’m kind of going through a metallic phase, currently. Isn’t it cute? iphone-6-case-polka-dot

What to Expect from WordPress 4.0

Wordpress 4.0 Featurs

You may (or may not) be aware that WordPress has come out with a full update, which released today. WordPress 4.0 has been highly anticipated and though there are mixed reviews, there are a few good features included in the update.

Want to know what they are? I thought you’d never ask. Here’s a quick run down of what you can expect from 4.0…

 

To get these latest features, you have to update your version of WordPress from within your dashboard. Don’t like to mess with that? Give me a holler…I’ve got a service (and a discount right now!) just for that.
