It's crazy to think about how quickly January has come and gone. It feels like yesterday when I was ringing in the new year with my friends and family but now here we are with the first month of the new year already set to wrap up. I'm not complaining, though - February is my favourite month of the year. Not only is my birthday in February (the 24th) but ten days before that it will be Valentine's Day. Some view it as a silly 'Hallmark' holiday but for a person like me who is a sucker for love I really enjoy the celebration of it.

I wanted to try something different this year for Valentine's Day. I've celebrated many of these before (this will be the 11th one with him) so I decided to break away from traditional things like flowers and candy. While it's true that you can almost never go wrong buying a woman flowers I wanted something that would last longer - something with a more personal touch. The folks at CaseApp gave me an opportunity to create something that fits the bill.

CaseApp is a website where you build custom cases and skins for your phone, tablet, or laptop. These cases can be designed using custom or existing themes on their user friendly webpage. I decided to go with a beautiful white marble print and I stamped my case with an infinity "You & Me" symbol which I thought was perfect for Valentine's Day.

As I mentioned earlier, they have plenty of custom backgrounds and clipart to choose from but if any of them don't work for you they do allow you to upload your own photos to use in your design.

So try something different this time around - get inspired by this month of love and go create something special for you and/or your loved one! The code "RachDinh20" gets you 20% off.
