Moving on up!

I FINALLY upgraded my cell phone.  Since June, I had been patiently waiting for Verizon to get the iPhone. When I started my new job, my boss took one look at my beat-up Blackberry Curve and decided to buy me a new cell phone! First day on the job and the boss buys me a new phone, pretty awesome right!? Well at that time, Verizon still did not have the iPhone. So I took a look around the store and decided to go with the DroidX. I loved the HUGE screen, (I carry a purse so the bigger the better!) and it reminded me a whole lot of the iPhone. 

So far, so good. I REALLY LOVE this phone. Of course, two days later Verizon announced they were getting the iPhone in February. I technically have 30 days to return my cell and try out another one (so I could get the iPhone.) But I think I am sticking with the DroidX. I really like it and I am overly impressed with the photo and video quality. A cell phone with HD video and an 8 megapixel camera!? Can't beat that!! So even though I am an avid Mac user, it looks like I am sticking with my Droid. 

With that being said, I want to make my cell phone pretty. I got a little pink gel case... it is cute but not as cute as I would like it. I came across a website and found the COOLEST skins for your cell phone. You can take any photo and make it a cell phone cover. They virtually have every cell phone listed (iPhone, Droid, you name it!) And I can personalize my cell phone cover any way I like it!! 

I made this one with the Lilly Pulitzer print that matches our bridesmaid dresses for Marisa's wedding! Talk about accessorizing! hehe This print in particular is called, "Do the Wave."

Here is another really cute one I did with a Lilly Pulitzer pattern! I am so ready for BRIGHT colors, SPRING weather, SUNDRESSES and FLIP FLOPS!

What do y'all think!? Aren't they MUCH prettier than the normal black cover. Best part, they are only $6.99.  I think I am going to order a few and see how I like them!!

You can also custom design covers for your Macbook, laptop computer, and iPad!

I love this website!! If you want to design your own to see what it looks like, go HERE!

Also, if you want to make a Lilly Pulitzer skin but don't have any Lilly photos, send me an e-mail. I have a TON!!!

Here is a little more information about the covers:

What Are Unique Skins?

The ultimate way to personalize and protect your electronic device! Unique Skins are removable adhesive-backed vinyl covers for protecting and customizing your electronic device. The best part about Unique Skins is that they are completely customizable. You control every aspect of how the skin will look! Upload your own photos, or even use your own personal artwork. Our customizer allows you to resize, alter, and rotate any image you upload so you have the maximum creative control over the final result. Our goal is to make sure you are completely satisfied with your skin.

Some AWESOME Features:

*Upload your own photos or personal artwork.
*Add text.
*Resize your images or text.
*Add multiple layers of text, photos, or personal artwork.
*Save for later.

Unique skins are thin enough not to add any additional bulk to your device but still offer protection from minor surface scratches that your device gets from everyday use.

Just because you've now created a custom skin doesn't mean you can't use any accessories with it. Our skins are designed to allow you to use most third-party accessories.

Now that you have fallen in love with the unlimited possibilities of custom skins it's now time for a change. Our skins feature a nonpermanent backing that allows for goo free removal when you're ready to change.



  1. My dad has that and I have an older droid and we love them! Our next phones will be iphones but for now they are great!!

  2. I want one of these covers! Megan...I just got my phone too and they announced like a week later when the iphones are out to Verizon! I love my phone too so I will stick with it!

  3. Cute! I just ordered my new skin and it was less than $5 with shipping. So excited! Thanks for the tip.

  4. I have the Droid X and I'm obsessed with it!!!

  5. I have had the first Droid that came out for a little over a year now. It really is the perfect phone. Although I have never had an iPhone, I can't imagine it would have any features that I can't enjoy from my Droid. I have had my phone for over 180 days, so I am eligible to purchase a new phone for a $20 upgrade fee. I thought about getting the iPhone when I found it was coming to Verizon, but after weighing my options, I decided against. I have decided to wait until June when the new Droid comes out... the Droid Bionic. It has an 8 megapixel camera, it is 4G, has 1GB of RAM, and a front camera for Skypeing. It is also roughly the same size as the X, so it has a fairly large screen, as well. I cannot wait! Plus, one perk that Droid is capable to handle that iPhone isn't is Adobe Flash!

  6. I just got a Droid X yesterday and love the covers you made - especially the 2nd print you show - is that "Checking In"? Where did you get a picture of the print to send to the company to make the covers??

  7. can someone email me some lilly pulitzer prints to use for a macbook pro 13in? My girlfriend would love it!

  8. I know its a year later but I just ordered one (made a lilly phone cover) and I am soooo glad i came across your blog about it! ahh love it!

  9. I just had a question about how you make the case to be Lilly...because I am not sure how to make it like that..and I want it to be Lilly because it is my favorite brand!
