no latte? something must be seriously wrong | iPhone-ography

Yep. Two days without my morning latte. You know something is up when that happens. I am five pounds lighter & feel like I got a whole body workout. Thank you lettuce-that-must-have-had-something-terrible-attached-to-your-leaves. I am just glad it is over & that the babe never skipped a beat. Crisis avoided. I spent a few hours in bed. Not tired. Just exhausted. Thankfully, my sick cycle started about 12 hours after my husband’s so I had someone to be Mr. Mom while I was out of commission.

I spent quite a bit of time on my iPhone taking a peek at the 1002 pictures that I took since I got it two months ago. I caught up on my news…and [gasp] learned my FAVORITE FAVORITE iPhone app was just BANNED from iTunes! EEK! Indeed, Camera+ committed a big no-no, and snuck in the awesome feature that allows users to press the shutter button using the volume controls. I only learned of this after the ban, but it still works! (& is really, really nice) SO if you don’t already have the app, boo hoo. If you got it the last time I talked about it (YAY!), you can watch this video & unlock the feature at minute 1:15. & for more info on why this app is awesome, watch this.

Because my iPhone has completely replaced my point&shoot, here are some images from the last few weeks…just to help remind you that beautiful, fun imagery is totally possible with your very own iPhone! No fancy camera gear necessary. Just some creativity & time learning your tool. Words & links follow, but are not necessary.

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
