Keeping in touch just got a whole lot easier and more fun with JustWink, an exciting new way to send personalized greetings using a free mobile app or online interface.

Over the years, electronic cards and Facebook messages have become the most common way to send a Happy Birthday or Congratulations note. However, a Facebook wall post can be a bit impersonal and many e-greetings can be grating with music and flash movies that go on and on. So annoying, in fact, that I'd all but given up on the e-card method of keeping in touch with friends and family. Until now...

I recently downloaded the free JustWink app to my iPhone and I'm 100% hooked! Not only does it offer a huge variety of cheeky, fun, and memorable greeting cards, but there are multiple ways to personalize them including photos, messages, even a handwritten signature. Creating the perfect card takes just a couple of minutes before sending via email, Facebook, Twitter, text message - even real mail. The best part? The finished product offers an experience similar to opening an actual card - no music, movies, or other distracting displays. Just a heartfelt message that is sure to bring a smile to the recipient's face.

Here are some screenshots of a card I created, complete with a photo, message and signature. You can view the finished card here.

Friends and family, you've been warned: I'm officially addicted!




justWink is an awesome collection of greeting cards that feature bold colors, adorable illustrations, and witty copy for every occasion.

Since deciding to step up my fitness routine this summer, a new pair of sneakers were my first order of business. It's not that I don't have a few pairs of running shoes, I do, but they're pretty basic looking (read: boring) which doesn't help much in the daily motivation department. Setting my sights on something bright and colorful, I decided to design my own pair of Nike LunarGlide+ ID shoes to ensure I get exactly the look I wanted.

After discovering that I could use my iPhone to access NIKEiD Mobile, I spent some time at the beach this weekend designing my dream sneaker. Not only does the new Nike LunarGlide+ ID offer the ultimate in lightweight responsive cushioning and dynamic support for necessary stability, there are so many ways to customize them to suit my individual style.



The mobile custom designer was super easy to use and offered several ways to customize the color and appearance of everything from the upper and midsole to the laces and swoosh. After playing around with several different color combinations, I opted for a bright orange to red fade design with "volt" accents and a reflective inner sleeve. Check them out!


With all the focus on my feet, my new Nike LunarGlide+ ID sneakers are sure to help keep my fitness routine on track - and looking great.
