Personalized items are all the rage, both for adults and kids! When decorating my daughter's room, I wanted to make sure that I included personal touches that reflected her personality as well as our style (because, let's be honest, a newborn doesn't have "style" yet so I am lending mine to her!). Her room is decorated in grey and pink, so I was thrilled to find this high quality personalized pink pillow from Spark & Spark!

It is an accessory that doesn't look too babyish so she can actually use it when she gets older. For now, it provides a perfect pop of pink in the antique rocking chair I refurbished (the same one my mom used to rock me in when I was a baby). I love combining different shades of the same color- it adds a great deal of dimension! The large "C" isn't actually sparkly, so don't worry about this being rough on your kiddo. It is a faux sparkle, so looks textured without being uncomfortable. This would make a great gift for a friend with a new addition! And of course, I had to shop for myself as well. Since I was in the market for a new iPhone case, I cruised the Spark & Spark selection. My number one requirement: it HAS to be durable. I can't tell you how many times I have watched my phone (and my stomach) drop on the hard cement.

I ordered the case above with a black rubber insert, making it "tough" versus "decorative." I really liked the fact that my phone was easy to insert and remove. I have another case where I have to practically pry my phone out with a crowbar in order to remove it. It also keeps a slim profile while still protecting your phone, and there are dozens of chic designs to personalize your phone.
