3 "Must-Have" Accessories in your "iPhone Wardrobe"

Yvonne is certainly the "invitations" lady but in a prior life, I was also a buyer for a major National Retailer here in the United States who purchased electronic accessories, cell phone accessories and other fun must-have gadgets for point-of-sale retail. As a buyer for this category of product, yep...I've seen it all when it comes to cell-phone accessories, particularly for iPhone. But at the end of the day, I can certainly sum-up 3 must-have all iPhone users must-have in their "Accessories Wardrobe." At the end of this post, you will find more information on Coupster.Co that offers these great accessories at amazing prices, along with Coupon Codes. 

3 "Must-Have" Accessories to have in your "iPhone Wardrobe":
1. Your "Must-Have" Everyday Black Dress:
The first is your everyday iPhone case. Color of choice for me is black. It's like having that black dress that you just can't do without, that never goes out of style and that you simply must-have as one of your wardrobe essentials. Take this Black Hybrid iphone 5 Case, for instance. This is a top pick for me from Coupster.Co, a great new website just launched that offers iPhone cases at very affordable prices. A top-pick for me because it has two layers of advanced protection for everyday use. The top layer is a hard shell for impact protection and the inner layer is a silicon skin cover that fits ideally over the hard-shell cover for a comfortable grip. It also includes a kick-stand for hands-free use or movie-watching. 
2. Your "At Play" Outfit:
So life is not all about work and no play, right? Because you deserve a little fun in the sun every now and then, no wardrobe is complete without a swim suit. Whether it is a one-piece or an itsy-bitsy-yellow-polka-dot bikini, you need a swim suit that will do the trick at the pool, boat or beach. This Black Aqua Box Aryca Style waterproof iPhone 4 & 4S Case, from Coupster.Co is a must-have for iPhone or iTouch users. This case, hands-down is the best water-proof solution! It is waterproof up to 20 feet and you don't even lose the the touch-screen functionality or camera and video recording capabilities with its interactive silicon sheath. This case even protects from sand and mud! Here's an extra even comes equipped with adjustable strap.
3. Your "Just-in-Case" Accessories:
In your wardrobe, I bet you must have things such as raincoats, galoshes, hats, and umbrellas for those days when you need them most.  As it downpours, isn't it a nice feeling protected and saying to yourself "Thank goodness, I brought my umbrella with me!"? Well, same holds true with your iPhone wardrobe. For those "just-in-case" moments, every iPhone user needs to have a back-up battery pack in times when more juice is needed. Coupster.Co also offers this Black Morphie Juice Pack for iPhone 4 & 4S. It's an external battery power pack and a protective hard-shell case in one! You can charge and sync your iPhone to iTunes without having to remove it from the case. The advanced battery technology delivers a great amount of "juice" for times for when you need it the most. Available in an array of cool colors.

HOT WEDDING TRENDS 2012: Rustic, Opulent and Romantic!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a great holiday season ;) Congratulations to you if you were engaged over the holidays!! Whether you are newly engaged and looking for ideas, or already engaged and have a wedding fast approaching, Yvonne ( has the latest in HOT trends in-store for this year! In this blog post we focus on 3 trends we are seeing at shows, recent events and all over the internet:  Rustic, Opulent & Romantic!

Back to Basics...
Rustic is a keyword in style this year, meaning going back to simplicity, going back to the heartland...making use of materials such as burlap, twine, raffia, wood and bamboo. Take a look at these pictures I picked up throughout the internet showing the use of these simple materials in various wedding elements, from twine tied around a bouquet of flowers to burlap on a wedding cake.

Here is an example of a very practical favor that we offer on our website that can easily blend in to this rustic theme. It is a natural bamboo set of coasters that is eco-friendly. It comes tied in raffia with a tag included. These are as low as $1.50 per a favor set of 4 coasters and fits in perfectly into this "back-to-basics" theme.

Simplicity goes a long way...
The irony in this rustic trend is that it is also seen combined with opposite touches of opulence and riches such as rhinestones, sequins and crystal. Here is another picture I picked up from the web. It features an elegant setting with simple white chairs in burlap sashes, alongside a table adorned in rhinestone-accented candles. Again, simplicity mixed with opulence with just the right touches...goes a long way in 2012!

Crystal and Chandeliers...
Speaking of crystal...chandeliers and sequin embellishments also happen to be very big in 2012. We see lots of crystal touches, especially with the use of chandeliers throughout,  such as in this elegant table setting below. Whether you use real or faux crystal touches, the look and feel opulence is prevalent.

This theme is also seen in other details such as favors, completing the glamour of the day. Look at this elegant crystal votive holder that we offer here, on Yvonne's Invitations & Favors. As low as $3.50 per favor, this multi-faceted votive holder, will shine brilliantly on your tables!

Silhouettes of crystal chandeliers are seen throughout invitations and in favors. This is just one of the invitations carried on our Yvonne's Invitations & Favors website, fittingly called "Fancy Chandelier." This is a shimmery invitation in gold which creates the feel of richness. 

Here is one of our chandelier-themed favors, which is personally one of my favorites. Mirror-glassed coasters are not just practical favors but can also serve to light up every reception table with their reflection, in the way they are openly packaged.

Romance through Lace...
Romance is seen this year in a way it has not been seen in recent years. It is the big dream of fairy-tale romance that accentuated this year with lots and lots of lace, ruffles, scalloped decor. We hear the words "Royalty", "Victorian", "Dramatic" and "Fairy-tale" used to describe wedding fashion, especially this year.

To create this feel from the very beginning, send out extravagant invitations such as this one we carry below, called "Vintage Gold." This invitation with its gold-shimmer touches will set the perfect tone for your romantic or vintage wedding.
