Customize your smartphone to be as unique and lovely as you are!




It's about time to turn the page on a new year. But how about instead of making resolutions, we focus instead on customizations? Isn't that what living a lovely life is really about, anyway? Customizing your closet to curate a comfortable yet personality-packed wardrobe for work and weekends. Customizing your small space to be cozy, convenient, and stylish in a way that reflects your unique taste. Customizing your phone and tablet in brightly colored cases. Customizing your life to be... well, lovely and unique. 

New Year, New You, New Phone!


Motorola has stepped in with Moto X, a fully customizable smartphone. It's a designer's / decorator's / color lover's dream. Picking out and playing with the colors like decorating – but for a smartphone!



It's like picking paint swatches... but for your phone!


To start, you head over to the MotoMaker – the online studio where you can design your Moto X. There are thousands of ways to make your phone unique by mixing and matching colors, leather, metallic accents, wood details, and wallpapers on the front, back, and screen of the phone. Plus, you can customize the memory storage and even have a name or short message laser engraved on the back.

I had to give the MotoMaker a whirl (well, actually several) to create my customized dream phone.

Welcome to the MotoMaker studio:


This is where you start. See that subtle curve of the phone? It makes it comfortable to hold onto.

I immediately went for the wood backs. I love this rich, warm wood tone.

I like the look of a crisp white face, too.

I went back and forth between metallic orange and metallic bronze details, but ultimately settled on the bronze because it feels more vintage and goes so well with the wood tone.

To know me is to not be surprised that I chose a turquoise case. ;)

I upped the memory. (More space for taking photos of DIY projects and decorating!)

I think it'd be a lovely little reminder to have "Live Lovely" engraved on the back.

...And displayed on the welcome screen, too.

I liked this gray wallpaper. It's so serene and not too distracting.

You can set up your Moto X to sync with Google before you even touch it.

Look at that beauty! I love the warm wood tones against that cool turquoise.

If you're a bit more indecisive or unsure where to begin, the MotoMaker provides some existing examples that you can swipe through and then customize once you see something you like.


Let the customization begin!


Besides being able to customize nearly everything to my liking, I love the perfectly-sized 5.2 inch HD display and curved frame that fits comfortably in hand. And the camera includes a handy Best Shot feature, which takes several photos before and after you snap a photo and identifies your optimal shot. The customization doesn't stop there. Your Moto X will adjust to your preferences depending on where you are – in the car, in a meeting, or going to sleep. You even can name it whatever you want and ask it questions.

It's a smartphone packed with premium features – without the premium price. With a two-year contract, you can have your own customized Moto X for $99. (Or without a contract, $499.) Add $25 for leather or wood backs.

Head over to the MotoMaker studio now to start dreaming up and customizing a Moto X as unique as you are. (And let me know in the comments what combinations of colors and accents you used!)

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
