A Whole New World @WindowsPhone

One of the coolest perks that comes along with hours of blogging is trying out new gadget!  When I was in Michigan, I met Christi and she told me all about the Windows Phone.  Being dual platform myself – I use a PC at home and a MAC at work. I have used Palm Treos, Blackberries, and iPhones.  I am not at all impartial to any brand and so I tried the Samsung Focus 2 which runs on Windows Phone o/s (operating system) with service by AT&T.

There are 5 things that I love about this phone:

1. I love the graphics. The graphics are HUGE and I don’t have to squint at all. The text is large and clear and the pictures are sharp and the resolution beats any phone I have used.  The ONE glance feature allows you to see if you have any emails, text messages, tweets all in one glance. You don’t have to check each app individually. Very cool.

2. I love it’s shape. It is slim, light and perfect. It has a curved edge for easy palming and the buttons are not hard to press and the touch key pad is very responsive. 

3.  I love how it syncs. I have over 5000 emails and phone number contacts between my Gmail, my Facebook and my Phonebook. This phone synced it all up and when I click someone’s name it allows me to contact them in every which way I desire in one touch. It can map their office or home address, it tells me their birthday, it tells me if they updated on social media. That is awesome.

4. It saves me time!  This phone shows me all the notifications in one screen. When I click it, it leads me to respond directly. It happens in lightning speed and there is no lag time at all. Did I mention the battery seems to last forever!

5. I love the camera. There is a camera button, there is a photo edit tool. It easily uploads to Twitter, Facebook or as MMS. So cool.

Overall I am totally surprised that I did not know more about the Windows Phone and playing around with it made me love it so much more. It is easy to get use to and a great alternative if you are tired of your current phone.  I highly recommend it!

Rockin’ Jewelry for this 4th Of July!

The 4th of July is just around the corner. Instead of wearing red,white,and blue why not accessorize with red, white, and blue. Accessorize with some festive jewelry for this free-spirited holiday.

Try this cute outfit featuring some Chibi jewels and a pair of Chromatic Gallerie pumps (Zoe Deschanel loves these pumps and has the same pair in red).This outfit is really casual and deffinetly more layed back but then the short pumps dress it up just a touch more. The jewelry I paired with the outfit was really cute and casual as well. I love the wire detailing through the stars. The scarf, however, is what gives this outfit its Fourth of July flare.

Or try this outfit featuring Shoemint wedges, Adesso necklace and bracelet, and Jewlmint earrings. This outfit is a bit more dressy, so this would be really cute if you were going to someones barbecue and the wedges would be perfect for dancing! Also, in this outfit I used blue as the central color for the dress,which cinches at the waist to give some shape, and the jewelry was more red, and white.  I love the earnings from Jewelmint. They have a very tribal feel to them wich is also really in-style.

In both of these looks I would pair these retro sunglasses from Dita.

I would definitely wear both of the outfits above. It all depends on where you are going and your personal style.

Both of these outfits were created on Polyvore.com. Follow me with the username : zaynabissa to see full prices and details on the pieces shown above.
