iPhone Cases + New York


Thaneeya and Owl

Happy Friday all! I'm taking a small trip to New York City with my hubby to celebrate his birthday. We'll be staying with a friend who has an apartment in a high rise building which is only few blocks from Times Square! I'm looking forward to enjoying the view from the apartment, endless strolls around the city and visiting museums. Do you guys have any recommendations for thrift stores, used book shops, restaurant that serves belgian waffles and best (in your opinion) coffee shop? 

Have a great weekend! See you back on Monday.

Happy February!


Happy February, everyone! To the most of us it's a fun month with love in the air. This year it's an extra special month beacuse we get an extra day added at the end of the month. Yes, it's a leap year. With our busy schedule we can most certainly use a bonus day. Do you agree? 

Getting back to Love and Valentine's Day. If you are looking for a gift for someone special in your life then allow me to remind you that our Owl Lover 2012 calendar will make a great gift for anyone. You can pick the images you like from the gallery of 45 images of fabulous artworks and create your own calendar. Simply tie a ribbon across it and throw in some chocolates with it ;) If you already have bought a gift then you why not print the February month and use it as a tag! I like the shown image of the love-birds owls by Oana.


I am sure you want to take a peek. Visit this link to see all the artwork and download one month or the entire calendar.
