Freebie Friday: Vibrant Wallpapers

September 15, 2016 in Freebies - 71 Comments

Happy Friday everyone!

I know you’re counting down the hours until your weekend can begin so here’ s a little something to sweeten your day – some free desktop and iPhone wallpapers I made just for you!


Scroll on down for some fun and vibrant matching desktop and iPhone wallpapers just in time for back-to-school and to bring a pop of color to your office cubicle. Plus I have some “Friday Food For Thought” on why I made these in the first place.

Along Came Katrina Vibrant Wallpapers


Some Food For Thought


Technically, I am not a designer.

To be really honest with you, I know only the basics of Photoshop which I used to create these babies right here. The few design skills I do know I learned on the job plus watching Youtube videos.


My mindset: Be fueled by the greatness of others.

After scrolling through my Instagram feed and discovering so many talented photographers, calligraphers and  designers, I really wanted to be able to craft something unique and fun that represents me.

Fueled by their talents, I always find myself asking “Am I capable of doing that too? Can I do it better?” The one thing I love to do is to make shit on my own and I am super proud that I was able to create these freebies to share with all of you. Especially the floral one considering it took me three FREAKIN’ hours to get it right.

Bottom Line

While I know where my talents lie, I am never afraid to try to learn something new.

And I implore you to do the same! What is one skill you have been meaning to learn? Get out there and learn it! You never know what you are capable of unless you’re willing to try.

*For the mobile wallpapers, be sure to select “move and scale” and select “still” on iPhone for the best display.

    • Here’s the thing: “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.” In our darkest moments, we may seek support, advice, and validation from others to help overcome our own self-doubt. But there will be times where there will be no one you can turn to, rely on, or count on except for YOURSELF.

And as difficult as that may be, there’s real power in betting on yourself.

    • 🍷Wine country: Livermore 🍷
#ThrowbackThursday: Sometimes a staycation is what you need. Since I wasn’t home for New Years, my bf planned a mini weekend getaway for us the following week.

An hour outside of SF, we found ourselves at @thepurpleorchid . It was quiet, private, romantic, and the hospitality was top-notch. You are treated like family here 💕
On top of that, they sell THE BEST DAMN OLIVE OIL I’ve had!

We spent the weekend exploring the wineries and Downtown Livermore.
We can’t wait to be back once everything is back to normal 🍷

    • 💐Bloom where you’re planted💐
The upside to shelter-in and being jobless is taking time to enjoy the little things that exist in our own backyard.
And in my backyard, I found these beautiful tendrils of flowers blooming despite all the shit that’s happening in the world.
Even though I lost my job, I’m slowly learning to bloom where I’m planted, to make the best out the situation, and to find beauty in the everyday. Because clearly it’s possible. ⠀⠀
With that being said, I’ve got some exciting news to share. Stay tuned!
How do you find the strength to bloom where you’re planted? Let me know in the comments below 🌸

    • Okay, you’re passionate. And?

Don’t get me wrong. It’s good to be passionate. But passion only gets you so far.

I got the opportunity to share my story with @boldandbrilliantlife about how I made my career switch from localization into events/marketing in the tech industry and the question about “finding your passion” came up.

The truth is this: a prerequisite to finding your passion is understanding what you’re committed to doing.

At the end of the day, what you need to be able to answer is are you COMMITTED to putting in the hard work to fulfill your passion? If not, what’s passion without a purpose?

Read my full interview about what it takes to jump ship and follow your passions. Story in bio

So, what are you committed to? ✨

With everything that’s happening in the world, there really is no right way to feel.
