By the way…

December 16, 2011 · 36 comments

1. …I finally got my iPhone 4s on Monday. Are you shocked I didn’t shout it from the rooftops?

That’s right. I went with the gold sparkles, thanks to my friend Sara (you rock, lady)!

2. …I’ve discovered how much I absolutely love “talk to text” and want to do it for the rest of my life (however, my iPhone doesn’t really understand my language half the time and the lack of punctuation really irritates me).

3. …Siri is fantastic. I won’t forget anything ever ever again. My coworkers are probably worried about me since all they’ve heard coming from my office for the past four days has been my voice saying “Remind me to ____ at __.”

4. …the app Heytell has brightened my life. For those of you unfamiliar with Heytell, it’s an app that kind of combines text messages with voicemail. The best/most potentially embarrassing part? If you leave it open, any message anyone sends to you gets automatically blared from your phone at full volume.

Which made it extra funny when I yelled into my phone to Anastasia to “..NOT FORGET TO BUY THE SUPER TAMPONS YOU SAID YOU NEEDED!” while she was at the grocery store.

5. …I’m still kinda figuring out Instagram.

Enough geeky iPhone talk — In other news,

6. …Cely is a selfish jerk and won’t share Ryan Gosling with me.

7. …I’m seriously impressed with Sobe’s brand new Sobe Life Water with Coconut Water marketing. When they offered to send me their brand new coconut water to try, I was pretty intrigued, as I’ve never tried it before. Check this box out.

Yeah. That was sitting on my doorstep.

Can I just keep the Sobe coconut to make me feel like I’m in paradise? I’ll put it at the top of my tree.

Anyway, the water is unreal. My favorite flavor is the Pacific Coconut. It’s so refreshing, and has way more coconut flavor to it than the Pomegranate Nectarine and Mango Mandarin flavors.

A few people have told me they have tried coconut water and disliked it; however, you’ve got to try this.. it’s not pure coconut water – it’s Sobe Life Water with coconut water.

8. …Lindsey posted this on Facebook, and I kinda love it. It’s too true.

“Do I look like a doily?”

Thank you, lady.

9. …I’m driving to NYC with Seth and Lisa-Marie today. I told them to get their favorite car singalongs ready, cause I’ve been practicing my 99 Bottles of Wine on the Wall. And my Sweet Child of Mine harmonies.

via / via

That’s right. I’ll be backseat pimpin’ with the iPhone.

10. …I’m going to go all Carrie Bradshaw on the streets of NYC tonight through Sunday. Watch out, New York Citay.

I hope Seth and Lisa-Marie can drag me outta that city come the end of the weekend.

HAVE FUN! My friend sent me “Shit Girls Say” and I’ve watched it thousands of times. OK maybe twice. So true! Also, I work for SoBe. I sent you that water. Just kidding, but I AM in marketing.

This is getting out of hand.

J Crew – however, I don’t recommend it. It started falling apart 3 days into using it.

my roommate made me watch the shit girls say video and I couldn’t stop laughing. the girl going “SHUT. UP.” is totally me. also, when you superimpose your face in photos, it makes me laugh out loud at my desk at work. love it!

Haha I sent that Shit Girls say to Colleen yesterday. I could not stop laughing when I saw it on facebook! So sad but so true.

I have also tried coconut water and thought it tasted like poo (aka not a fan), but perhaps this will change my mind..

I actually love coconut water that does not taste like coconut water. ;) I’m totally jealous of your iPhone. I’m jealous of pretty much any smart phone though, cuz I’m still rockin’ the old school flip.

Eeeee! I finally get my upgrade on January 3rd….hellooo, iPhone!! LOVE the case. Kinda want one. Bad. I have been lusting over a gazillion cases over Pinterest and I don’t even have a phone yet. Thought I may want to save some moolah and go for the 4, but you won me over with your Siri talk. I forget EVERYTHING…she must help me.

Ps, you can tell talk to text punctuation. But you have to be ridiculous and say “question mark” and “smiley” after whatever you tell it! Hope that helps! Love your blog!

Well heyyy, thanks for the shout-out! That video killed me. So funny.
I have never tried coconut water, what is wrong with me?! And I love that little coconut that accompanied the water. I’d totally keep it.

I hope you had a fab time in New York, can’t wait to hear your recap!
