New CP Desktop, iPhone, iPad, & FB Wallpaper

I can't believe how quickly my time in NYC is going by. My apartment doesn't feel like a hotel anymore, it's beginning to feel a lot more like home. I can open the two locks on my door with one hand while carrying groceries and a cup of coffee with the other. I'm friends with the guys at the UPS store where I have a mailbox for TCP. I know which exit to use in my subway stops so I pop out in the most convenient locations.

I've also been working a lot, and sleeping very little. Admittedly, this has led me to forget to simply enjoy my first few moments in the city. I don't want to look back in a month, or a year, or five years and regret not enjoying every single moment. No matter what my future holds, I will never get my first week living in New York City back.

I think the phrase "living in the moment" is... okay. Frankly, everyone lives in the moment. Some more than others, but everyone is living that moment. Enjoying the moments is an entirely different story. I want to enjoy it all: the good, the bad, the ugly, the exciting, the wonderful, the peaceful, the hectic... 

I want to enjoy the moments.

I decided to change up the wallpapers. Instead of the usual backgrounds, I chose a very fun Kate Spade wallpaper that I had saved to my computer a long time ago. It's super adorable, I think. Perfect for back-to-school and the upcoming season of fall.


Desktop Wallpaper:

Right click on the image and open in a new tab or window.
Save image to your computer or drag it to your desktop or specific folder
On macs: Right click the file and click "Set Desktop Picture."



iPhone Wallpaper:

Open this page on your phone or email yourself the image.
Open the image and save it to your phone.
Go to the photos folder and set as wallpaper. You shouldn't have to move/scale the photo. I always make it my lock screen and home screen.



iPad Wallpaper:

Open this page on your iPad or email yourself the image.
Open the image and save it to your iPad.
Go to the photos folder and set as wallpaper. You shouldn't have to move/scale the photo. I always make it my lock screen and home screen.



Facebook Cover Photo


Right click on the image and open in a new tab or window.

What tips do you have for enjoying the moments?

  2. Gorgeous wallpaper! You inspired me to start getting into Photoshop again and it is so worth it! I'm truly trying to surround myself with positive messages as I head back to school for my senior year and "enjoy the moments" is right up the motivation alley! Thank you for encouraging me and all your readers. Have a wonderful week!

  5. Adore these wallpapers and love the sentiment. It's so easy to feel as if you're living in the moment without savoring what's so special about that precise point in time. Glad to hear you're adjusting to the city, New York only gets better! :)

  11. I think what people mean, at least what I mean, when they're talking about "living in the moment" isn't simply survival style living-breathing, eating, drinking, etc. but taking advantage of opportunities and enjoying the present. I agree that we should enjoy the moments too, and I think the biggest way to do this is to have lots of perspective. You can't "live in/enjoy the moment" when you're worrying, so I try to keep my worries in check. It helps me to enjoy life and handle serious issues better.
