Dress Your iPhone 5 in Galaxies and Coral

October 17, 2013

Less than a month out of the gate, the iPhone 5 has more clothing options than Anna Wintour. Collected at an Apple Store, boxed in white or gray – it’s nirvana. But then, what to wear?

Bulky or slim? Monochrome or patterns? Boho chic or urban sleek? The closet never ends. So, we’ve poked around the thousands of outerwear options, and as your personal shoppers, would draw your discerning eye to …iphone

Nothing says individual like a monogram. The exclusive Seafoam and Coral Monogram Quatrefoil case is perfectly contoured for your iPhone’s curves, boasting a hard shell exterior and shock-absorbing liner. Sleek and virtually weightless, its stately coral and seafoam hues will never go out of style:

For the brazen carriers, the Abstract Geometric case bursts forth in a kaleidoscope of colors. Its form-fitting shape hugs the iPhone’s corners with a crash-kapow punch, but this beauty also has smarts – a flexible, impact-resistant plastic shell:

And for the dreamer, no iPhone is complete without a galactic covering. The Galaxy case is durable and lightweight, tough yet forgiving, just like the skies above us. And like each part of the universe, it connects to everything else – to every port and button – ensuring a joyous journey:

Oh the Places You’ll Go

October 16, 2013

Wanderlust  (noun) \ˈwän-dər-ˌləst\: A strong desire or urge to wander or travel and explore the world.

Bucket lists are made up of the places and things we dream of experiencing. Today we’re going to make a few additions to our lists. For inspiration, we perused stunning images in the new Getty Images store. You can find photography from several different categories, including architecture, nature and sports. After a deep dive, here are five places you might like to visit…

Eiffel Tower
On a clear day at the top of the Eiffel Tower, you can see more than 42 miles away. Originally the 20-year plan was to dismantle the Eiffel Tower and sell it as scrap. That was a sigh of relief you just heard from our side of the computer screen. After all, the Eiffel Tower is backdrop to so many well-loved TV moments and movie scenes.

Brooklyn Bridge
Looking for a new high-risk business venture? You can sell famous landmarks to tourists. In 1901, a conman by the name of William McCloundy did just that. He sold the Brooklyn Bridge to a passerby, and was later sentenced to two and a half years in prison. We can only hope McCloundy sold the Brooklyn Bridge for even a fraction of its value—it cost $15 million to build, which equates to more than $320 million today.

Big Ben
Big Ben is London’s most popular tourist attraction, and is the nickname given to what is known as the Clock Tower. Some say the tower was named for Benjamin Hall, a very tall civil engineer and politician. Each year the clock’s time is recalibrated with an old British penny. If the clock runs fast, a penny is added to the pendulum; however, if the clock is slow, a penny is removed.

The Grand Palace
Wat Phra Kaew is a stunning structure within the Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand, and is a reflection of the creativity and skill of Thai artisans. Each gate of the balcony is guarded by giant Yaksa Tavarnbal.

Piazza dei Miracoli
The “Square of Miracles” is recognized as one of the world’s main centers for medieval art. It is here that you will find the Leaning Tower of Pisa. This free-standing bell tower tilts 3.99 degrees to one side. The lean began during construction due to a sandy and inadequate foundation.

Dining and Dinglehoppers

October 15, 2013

While well-meaning, the goofy seagull Scuttle may not have known everything about being a human. His advice gets Ariel into a social scramble, when she makes use of a dinglehopper at the dinner table.

The Little Mermaid DVD is being released from the Disney vault, which means a whole new generation of girls will be singing “Part of Your World” and doing the iconic hair flip in pools (admit it, you’ve done it!).

For those of us lucky enough to see The Little Mermaid in theaters, you can sync your iPad with the Second Screen Live app, which allows viewers to engage with the movie in a new way through sing-alongs and trivia.

Before you head to the theater (or snag your copy on DVD), you may want to brush up on your “Under the Sea” vernacular…

Dinglehopper: According to Scuttle, humans use a multi-pronged tool to straighten out their hair. “See, just a little twirl here, an’ a yank there, and voila! You got an aesthetically pleasing configuration of hair that humans go nuts over!” For those of us who aren’t part of the daughters of Titan crew, you may recognize a dingglehopper as a fork.

Banded Bulbous Snarblatt: This prehistorical gem evolved from a time “when humans used to sit around and stare at each other. It got very boring, so they invented this snarfblatt to make fine music.” Translation? You and I might call a banded bulbous snarblatt a pipe!

Our Favorite Fall Things

October 11, 2013

Yesterday we featured some of the new products on site, and good news! There are even more new products that can be customized!

As the temperature drops across the country, it’s time to pull out those chunky cable sweaters and cozy leggings. Aztec prints were everywhere this summer, and the trend continues to be popular now that it’s autumn. Leggings are available on Zazzle in twelve colors, including asphalt, forest, eggplant and camel. You can add your own design, or pick up this pair in a tribal print.

New Products Underfoot

October 10, 2013

The Zazzle team has been hard at work, and there are several new products underfoot. In this week’s new product round-up, we’re spotlighting some of the new goodies that are now on site (and even a few you that you may have missed).

Something to Flip For

Legend has it that the modern flip-flop was inspired by traditional Japanese wooden sandals. Fortunately for you, our flip-flops are made with a squishy rubber sponge footbed (no slivers here!).

Tick Tock Watch!

Wrist watches were popularized during World War One. Soldiers in the midst of battle found that it was faster to check the time with a glance at the wrist, rather than digging for a watch in the pocket. Watch

Food for Thought

Did you know that the name Jelly Belly was inspired by the musician Lead Belly? This sweet treat has been around since 1976, and was popularized by Ronald Reagan. You can customize your very own glass Jelly Belly jar or tin. Penguin
