A lot of people (iPhone users) have asked me how I’m able to send such cute emoticons in my texts to them. The answer is downloading Emoji, however the installation instructions were a little confusing to try to explain via text and so after chatting with Carlovely last night and trying to yet again explain it, I figured I’d just post a tutorial once and for all.
1. Make sure your iPhone has the latest software update
2. Search “Touch dial” in the App store & buy the .99 cent version (see photo)
3. Go to Settings > Touch Dial > turn Enable Smiley icon to ON
4. Launch Touch Dial Emoji (no further action needed once launched), then go back to home screen
5. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards > Japanese and enable “Emoji.”
6. Use Emoji in SMS by clicking the “Globe” icon
* The above steps are required to *send* Emoji from an iPhone, but any up to date iPhone user can SEE emoji! (other phones most likely cant)
* There are 461 little emoji’s you can use!
So there you have it. Let me know if it works for you & if you have any questions. Happy texting!
Remember that ginormous box of crayons with the built in sharpener? Yeah I loved it too. But these crayons totally kick their ass IMO. They’re so magical looking!
I can totally see myself arriving at a brunch client meeting with these in hand. So pretty.
I’m curious as to how effective these kitchen scrubbing cloths are. They look fun though.
If you’re a forgetful francis like me, then maybe you can benefit from this hilarious one a day calendar. Happy pill popping.
Dirty Dancing is one of my all time favorite movies. Which is why I clapped my hands in delight when I came across Design Sponge’s Living In last week.
Real life Cinderella glass slippers? Yes please.
The packaging of MUSICA’s design department made me laugh. Clever.
Somebody please, anybody. Do what you gotta do to get this duvet set in my possession immediately. It’s so gorgeous my
moutheyes are watering.
Paragraphically Speaking; Cottage cheese + pineapple, surprises, when cute people refer to mail as ‘parcels’, Autumn FINALLY arriving, snuggling under tons of blankets with the windows open, being blessed with amazing friendships, learning new design principles, purple highlighters, feeling inspired, my cute new hat, bicycle rides, leggings + boots, how long my hair is getting, kindness, new home office supplies, picture messages, girls nights, cupcakes, my handsome loverboy, love in general, upcoming concerts, being strong, saying no & making progress on what matters most to me.
Take back everything you said you never meant a word of it
This past Sunday Glenn & I grabbed my baby sister and trekked on over to Apple Hill with Jordan & Ashley. Besides the fact that it was like 100 hellish degrees, it was a fantastical day. Rather than bore you with my verbal account of it all, I’ll let the pictures tell the story.
If you haven’t had your Apple Hill fill you can live vicariously through the rest of my photos here.
“What part of the word ‘no’ don’t you understand?”
Oh, how I HATED when my mother would say that to me. It was usually right after I asked her for the billionth, time if I could have a candy bar at the grocery store (my fat kid tendencies began at an early age).
I guess even now, at age 24 I am still learning the meaning of “no” because I have a hard time saying it and putting it in action wisely. It’s just naturally how I am. I’m an extrovert. I love being involved in a multitude of stuff. Stuff is fun. I am fun. But you know what is not fun? Overdraft fees. Hangovers. Feeling fat. All of these have happened to me before and it’s because I didn’t learn how to say no.
But I am trying. Srsly I am. See, look at my little list:
Things I Am Getting Good At Saying No To
- Making plans upon plans every single day. Hey Liz, wanna hang out Mon/Tues/Weds/Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun/Christmas/Your birthday? NO!!!
- How about another round at the bar? Please note I said “bar” and not “bottles of wine at home.” Ha.
- Impulsive shopping. This is probably my biggest achievement. I am the epitome of a female when it comes to shopping; I just adore it. And I can’t even remember what the mall looks like right now. *dies a little inside*
Things I Need To Say No To More Often
- Cigarettes (I know, I know).
- Being a couch potato vs. exercise
- PROCRASTINATION. ’nuff said.
- Google Reader. You might laugh but you know it’s true. I really need to cut back on the amount of time I spend in that tab. My OCD won’t rest until all have been marked as read. Curse you, bolded, triple digit number!
Not a bad start, me thinks. What are some things you say “no” to?
Go ahead and ponder that while I run out and grab that candy bar my mom denied me at such a young age. Kidding ;)
Will he take her love? Will his hands know what mine did? Will your body like the fit? Will he take her love?
