There’s no food on my face… it’s my Uncommon phone case.

At the BlogHer ’11 convention this weekend, I noticed some people staring at me.  One woman stared at me while we were waiting for a session to start.  Another woman stared at me from across one of the tables at lunch.  These were women I said hello to… and made small talk with…yet I couldn’t figure out why they were looking at me so intently.  I wiped at my face, thinking pesto must be there.

I thought perhaps I was being rude — burying my nose in my phone and texting, rather than engaging.  So I put my phone down.  As I did so, the eyes of the lady across the lunch table followed my phone to the table.  I looked up at her and she said, “I was admiring your phone case.  Where did you get that?”

Ahhhhh… so it wasn’t about me.  It was about my phone case.  Sometimes I’m as egocentric as my preschooler.

Throughout the weekend, at least half a dozen more people commented on my phone case.  I can’t blame them.  It rocks.

Wanna see?


It's wrapped with one of my favorite photos.



It’s a picture of me… taking a picture of me… looking at me… holding my phone… that has a picture of me.

Where did I get it?  I got it from a company called Uncommon.  They design custom Apple accessories.

And because I don’t want to be alone in my egocentricity, you can get one too at a pretty discount.

You don’t have to put a picture of yourself on it. You can design your own artwork, or chose from already designed cases.  But, seriously, I would feel a lot better if you put a big fat picture of your face on it.

Just go to, and design your case.

Put in the code MOMMYNANI2011 for a $10 discount.  The original price is only $35 to begin with.

This code is only available from 8/7 – 8/21.

Your welcome.


*DISCLOSURE:  This product was given to me free of charge to show off at BlogHer.  I personally asked for a discount code for my readers because I like the product and wanted to share it with you.

    That is a gorgeous phone case. I would have stared too if I had remembered to seek you out. A total fail on my part and huge regret. I blame the fact that there were like 3000 ppl at BlogHer.

    But I have learned my lesson, next year I will be on you like white on rice.

  3. I love it, but Husband just called me (and inadvertently you) a fucktard…guess I’m not getting one!

  4. BTW, he’s a total ass who doesn’t understand how truly adorable this is…I’m totally getting one (right after I get an iPhone)!

    omg, love that picture. I say OMG a lot, I know this. Whatever. I want one. But can’t decide what to put on it. I’m so fickle. You decide, and I’ll get one 😛
