Solid as a rock.

I’ve been in the mood for a new iPhone case, which is how I discovered these fun geode cases at Society 6. While they’re not real geodes (I know, stating the obvious here), they really do look like the real thing. Such a bright, colorful way to keep your iPhone safe, all summer long, and right now, they’re 20% off plus free shipping. Whoo! Here are just a few of my favorites from the artist TheQuarry. You can also search around the site for other geode cases from other designers. Related: Over 30 of the coolest iPhone cases for every...

Emoji smart phone cases. Because they’re already all over your phone anyway.

Oh c’mon, I know that emoji are already all over your phone. Is there anyone that can still resist the siren call? I think not! That’s why I going all-in with one of these emoji smart phone cases. The question is, which one should I get?   I like Kate Spade’s interpretation of emoji, which not surprisingly makes them seem a little more upscale. The Lovestruck emoji iPhone 6 case [Edited: currently out of stock] is my favorite of her collection, but she’s got a few others to choose from. Or, I could buy a couple and change them depending on my...

Society6 leggings: Be still my stylish geeky heart.

If you’ve ever been to Society6, then you know it’s a veritable wormhole of super cool art work from artists from all around the world that they whip into really cool gifts, from fun t-shirts to awesome smart phone cases, many of which we’ve featured here. But now they’ve launched leggings and I’m kind of freaking out, to put it lightly. I admit I’m jumping a bit on the bandwagon with this funky leggings trend I’m seeing all over the place, but hey, considering my spring uniform is generally leggings and a tunic or flowy top, adding some extra...

Cool artwork for girls who have heroes too.

Sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough strong heroes for girls in TV and movies for my own daughters to look up to, which is why I love how artist Scott Park has illustrated 80 phenomenal female heroes and put them into in his spectacular Hall of Heroes poster. Talk about a broad list? Wow, I can’t even name them all. We’ve featured lots of very cool artwork for girls, like these strong princess posters and gender-reversed fairy tale prints but I’m loving the diverse group of women in this poster.  It’s got so many of our recent favorites that girls will easily recognize, like Elsa from Frozen, Eva from WALL-E;...

The ABCs of Spiderman

I think as a parent that everything can be turned into a teaching opportunity. For example, one’s iPhone case.    We all know the ABCs are an essential skill for young children to master, and identifying animals are a key early learning activity for toddlers. Plus, all reading materials can be a way to get kids excited about reading, even comic books. So in my opinion, Derek Eads’ Spiderman goes to the Zoo is the ideal iPhone case for any parent to justify having around the house. Even if Kraven isn’t exactly a real animal. I might have opted for Chameleon,...
