One Bored Mommy Feels Like the Belle of the Ball!

Blogger felt like she was ready to strut the red carpet! We are so impressed with how great she looks! Every Mom deserves a little glamour and to feel like she is the QUEEN that she is every now and then(husbands take note!). Moms anywhere can feel like this at the low prices that LightInTheBox offers, by custom fitting a dress to fit her perfectly – Moms everywhere can also feel like the Belle of the Ball!

It’s been 17 years since I’ve needed to buy a “FORMAL” ball gown.  When I was in high school, my senior formal dress cost around $100 and it didn’t fit my body “perfectly”, but I felt pretty in it anyway.      How much MORE comfortable, gorgeous and perfect would I have looked…if the dress I wore was CUSTOM FIT perfectly (custom designed) to fit me (and especially if it didn’t cost much more)?

I have news for you high school goers, who still have proms and formals to shop for…I found a company that not only has one of the biggest, largest selections of formal wear I’ve seen…but they can also CUSTOM FIT your dress to your exact body measurements…because we know that all ladies are unique and different.

This box came today…and at first, I wasn’t sure what was inside…but HOLY MOLY was I excited when I got to see the elegant beauty that was folded so neatly in this box. is the chic within reach site known for its unique “made-to-order” special occasion dresses – that are all up to 80% off every single day.  “Made-to-order” means that LITB dresses are not machine made and sitting in a warehouse.  The dress is only made once l the order is place.  What makes LITB different than other online sites is that the offer the ability for customers to provide their exact measurement to have a dress made to custom-fit her figure beautifully (cost for custom sizing in only an additional $29.99 – which save hundreds of dollars on costly alterations if purchased at a store, or another online dress site!

After watching the video online and taking my measurements correctly, I submitted all my information and only 3 1/2 weeks later, this CUSTOM FITTING ball gown arrived… the

Sheath/Column Sweetheart Floor-length Chiffon Evening Dress

The bodice has amazing sequin and beading…that brings a little “BLING” to it and the color just makes me feel amazing!

CLICK HEREand check out the overwhelming selection of dresses you can choose from.  Seriously, you have to order several weeks in advance (for an event), but it’s worth the wait!  The dress will arrive to you, at your door, ready to wear, and should fit you PERFECTLY!  Mine does!!
Now…to find some RED CARPET event to wear it too…

Cute iPhone Cases Review

Straight from the too trendy and adorable blogosphere comes this review from British blogger Islay! Her blog is full of the coolest nail art and cutest stuff in general! She bought two iPhone cases from and loves her purchase! Check out her full post, and see more photos! Also make sure to see her excellent nail DIY!

“I don’t know about you, but I think that one of the best things about having an iPhone is the sheer number of phone cases that you can choose from to put on it. Before buying these two I had this one on which I still really love but I thought it was time for a bit of a change!
I bought these from a website called and they came to just over £3 including postage all the way from America- BARGAIN. They took a couple of weeks to arrive but you can hardly complain as they were so cheap! They have a good range of different ones on the website and I had to restrain myself to only getting two but as they’re so cheap they’re hardly going to break the bank if you fill your virtual shopping basket with them!

Here’s the direct links to the ones I got- watermelonglitter but if you go here you can browse all of their iPhone 4/4S cases but they also have them for the iPhone 3 and 5 too I think!”

What do YOU think of her phone cases?


Cell Phones, Computers, and More!

So many news this week!  From an awesome iPhone 5 app, to the surprising rise of the Windows phone, you can’t help but WANT to read more!

After the Kantar Worldpanel last quarter, the mobile OS world was in for a surprise: Windows Phone has risen by 52% while Blackberry went down bye 81%.  Android and iOS has pretty much stayed the same.  These stats are gathered from over 240,000 interviews in the US to determine what consumers want.  So after reading THIS interesting bit of news, what OS will YOU be using next??

Samsung recently released its Series 9 Ultrabook, which looks eerily similar to the MacAir.  This laptop will support Windows 8 Pro and is selling for about USD $1900.  The only downside is that this product will not have the touch-screen feature.

A Facebook phone??  There have been several rumors floating about a Facebook phone and now it has become a reality.  HTC-created, there is even a name for it — HTC Myst.  Instead of an Android home screen, the phone will have a Facebook home app with a dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch screen, and a 720p resolution.

Amazon has announced its creation of the Cloud Drive Desktop app, where users can access music, movies and documents across multiple computers and mobile devices.  Is Amazon gunning to replace Dropbox and Google Drive?

Want to have a better audio experience with your iPhone 5?  Amplify your phone with iPlifier, a device you can attach to your iPhone 5 to enhance the sound quality while in a crowded area.  Downside?  This device blocks the charging port in your iPhone 5.

Has Harry Potter come to  life??  Researchers from the University of Texas, Austin, has developer a super thin material called “metascreen,” where this cloak has the ability to shield very small objects.  Would YOU want a cloak like this??
