So I recently saw through a couple social media sites that people were getting super awesome prints of their Instagram photos. Being the social media slut that I am, I did some searching via Facebook and Insta and found Printstagram! This site lets you select photos to order as gorgeous little matte prints (in two sizes), posters, and adorable flip books.


How cuuuute.

I’m currently in the process of using these little beauties in a project (which I will keep you posted on) but I can’t wait to place my next order.


Laid out for crafting while watching Mindy…

Head to to order your prints today! It’s $12.00 for 24 prints of your choosing. Happy printing and remember to follow me on Instagram @graceisgold

Stay Gold.






Dunes Day

JH and I decided to celebrate the first real weekend of summer with a trip to the beach. We didn’t feel like the standard North Avenue or Oak Street beach experience so we made the trip South to the Indiana Dunes and Miller Beach.


JH snagged me this silly phone case at a gas station.

We packed up the car with towels, sunscreen, and sandwiches and headed out. I didn’t have the chance to take many photos as I was spending my time lounging in the sun…But I did manage to snag a good one of JH while he was in the middle of telling me one of his outrageous stories 🙂


“So then I was all….”

I also had the chance to debut my new summer haircut/color this weekend! I cut about four inches off and put in some low lights to blend my barbie blonde with my natural color. Very happy with the results!


With my new Cole Haan shades 🙂

We had a lovely day in the sand and water, listening to summer tunes and telling summer stories. Miller Beach is a great little beach that I’ve been visiting since I was a little kid; if you want to avoid the crowds and traffic of surrounding beaches, Miller is the place for you.

Now that I’m tan, I don’t feel bad saying….

Stay gold,


Product Review: Wireless iPad Keyboard

As some of you may know, about a month ago I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with my BA in Marketing and Graphic Design. 



And with graduation came my gift from my parents…An iPad! I have a couple friends who work at Apple so they hooked me up with the newest generation iPad complete with retina display 🙂 As a writer and a blogger, I definitely needed a means of typing on my new toy, so I did some research on Amazon and found this little beauty…



This keyboard comes with a tablet case, a bluetooth connected keyboard so you can type while your iPad is across the room, and a pivoting mechanism on the back of the case so you can mount the iPad both landscape and portrait! The best part?

Image…It comes in PINK!

I highly recommend this product. It folds in half securely and fits easily in most purses and backpacks. It ran be about $40.00 on Amazon and took about two weeks to ship as it came from China.
