i was fortunate enough to find this in the clearance racks for $34, so I tried it out for my iphone: Memorex iMove Boom Box for iPod – Mi3005 surprisingly it even works on my iphone, being able to charge it while playing my tunes and yes- even videos. the sound quality is great, being able to amplify from the iphone itself while adding the boombox’s sound. it gets pretty loud. the only thing to keep in mind if you’re using your iphone is turning the “phone” option off cuz it’ll cause static since the speakers and phone signals coincide. i love it though because now my child can watch her favorite movies on it, with full sound. the only thing i wish was different was that it was stable and even if standing on its side, because when watching a video, you have to turn the iphone horizontal. also, i love how it has the option to use batteries instead of an outlet, even though it does come w/ an a plug out! that rocks since you can take it anywhere, and charge your i-whatever ANYWHERE! this thing also comes with crazy numerous attachments for differnt types of i-toys […]
starbucks is finding new ways to caffienate us- again, but this time in the form of chocolates and truffles. yes my (girl)friends, watch the thighs and skip the starbucks aisle. so i bought it to test it out with a couple of friends while chatting up, and we all could only take one each because of its sweetness. granted it tastes like the starbucks drink, but the truffle taste is great….i absolutely love truffles more than solid chocolate, so this was a treat. i just don’t think i could take more than 2! but today, i tried something new and plopped it right into my morning coffee, and it quickly melted, being my sugar substitute. it was yummy! try it … if you can find it.
so you can’t just stick in the iphone to any speakers. you’d need a headset adapter to listen to your music on stereo speakers. for that you’d want to get the belkin headphone adapter to stick in your iphone and connect the regular stereo adapter. sound works great, the item is very sturdy, and belkin’s always a reliable brand. now i can buy portable speakers. but that’s another review blog. source: ebay.com price: $8.50 status: own
i love great music. and let’s face it, i also love hymns. so you add them, multiply, carry the two and subtract the square root and get: crazy huh? i was actually hoping they’d come out with a cover for the iphone, cuz then my friends, you’d see me rocking the hymnal cover. It’s leather material designed to case your iPod or any device of the same dimensions. what do you think? worthy or blasphemous? price: $19.99 source: www.perpetualkid.com status: –

one day, when i’m a millionaire, i plan to have a room like this: if i’m lucky, knowing how these furniture designers like to pricey up their products, i’ll probably only get to own one stone pillow. Livingstones created soft pillows for furniture/decor that resembles boulders and stones. They’re beautiful aren’t they? But with beauty are some problems: 1. you can’t just buy one you know. wouldn’t that look silly? The problem with stones is that there are usually more than one or two in the scene- like giddy teenager girls. this means you’re not just shelling out $600 for a boulder; you’re spending $200 for 3 rocks each and $90 for 7 stones each. i’m no math major but i believe that’s $1840? And that’s for one person seating… 2. to create an indoor living space to resemble the outside, that room better be very simple- so no buying of Ikea sectional couches and side tables. the most you can do is scatter a few books on the floor to make it look like a zen space for lounging. but this picture is beautiful isn’t it? the black lacquered floor looks like water on a dark night w/ floating […]
how fitting that I’d love this…can you tell i love cherry blossoms (hence the twelvesixteen cherry blossom theme)? I would totally love to receive five branches of these cherry blossoms lights as a present. It comes in white or pink, but since i love pink, i’d prefer them. Plus, white would look too much like christmas lights. The pink ones look more like flowers from a distance, and would cast more color in a dim room. one branch holds 35 decorative flower lights and functions like a light, powered by an outlet. store: grahamandgreen.co.uk retail: $35/ branch status: want
