I am about a week or so away from a phone upgrade. As much as my Windows Phone gets the job done, I am just still not happy with the selection of apps compared to other systems.

Decor that stands out


Please enjoy this guest article written by contributing site supporters of Serendipity Mommy   The workplace tends to fall into three categories: the decidedly dilapidated (and not in a chic way), the conventionally indifferent (stock chairs, stock desk, stock paintings of flowers) and the magnificently spectacular (right out of a Hollywood movie).
