Snugg Phone Case Review

A month ago I traded in my Blackberry Curve for a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, and as a result I had been on the lookout for a new phone case. Coincidentally, a few days later I received an email from a company called Snugg, offering to send me a phone case to review. Prior to this I had been struggling to find a case for my specific phone, so of course I happily accepted the offer. For the past two weeks I have been using this case, and I am very impressed. The quality of it is incredible and it securely contains my phone, ensuring that it doesn't get damaged or become loose and drop out. The inner lining of the case is extremely soft, which also makes sure that my phone doesn't get scratched. In fact, last week I attended a gig with my phone in its case in my bag, and it remained in pristine condition. I'd heard horror stories of phones getting completely destroyed in mosh pits at gigs, yet the case did a perfect job of ensuring that mine was fully protected from any overly-energetic teenage boys that may have thrown themselves against me. 

I chose this imitation leather case in the colour black, as I though that it looked timeless and classic, and I'd never grow tired of its simplicity. The case looks very sophisticated and has the company's name subtly embossed on one side and on the elasticated pull strap. This strap is a feature I'd never seen before on a phone case; however now I realise how useful it is. Instead of struggling to remove my phone from the case, I can simply tug on the strap and the phone is easily ejected. The only downside to this is that it is slightly flimsy to use if I am in a rush, albeit this isn't a major issue. Another great feature of the case is its handy storage space for cards. I keep my travel card in this slot, although it could also be used for credit cards or business cards. This pocket means that I don't have to keep transferring my card from purse to purse, as I can now keep it in one place and I'll never forget it again. 

The case is currently on offer, retailing at a reasonable £19.99 on Amazon and their website. Snugg also sell cases for other devices such as iPads and Kindles, so I'd definitely suggest you check them out.

Waiste X Thriftette Event

I recently attended a Waiste event with Iffa in collaboration with Thriftette for the launch of their new collection. Waiste is a brand set up by Sara of Waiste, which features reworked and customised denim pieces with a  grunge twist. The new collection consists of lashings of acid wash and pastel dyed denim jackets and dungarees adorned with embroidered daisies and hearts, and prints such as paisley or stars. I am swooning over the "Not You" jacket, which very much reminds me of Meadham Kirchhoff- one of my favourite brands. Anything which combines tie dye with fringing is a winner in my eyes! It's definitely worth checking out the new collection, although I do apologise in advance if I cause you some severe damage to your bank balance. The temptation to buy entire collection is overwhelming!

At the event I had the pleasure of meeting some incredibly lovely bloggers: Sarah from Fashion Dotty, Lola from Pastime Bliss, and Amy of Amy Valentine. Make sure you have a look at their amazing blogs!

Metallic OOTD + YesWalker Bag Review

Bag: c/o YesWalker
Top: Primark
Skirt: Missguided
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Bracelet: H&M
Watch: Casio

I was recently contacted by the lovely people over at YesWalker, who offered to send me a product for me to review. YesWalker is an online store selling a wide range of women's shoes, bags and accessories with free shipping, and a brilliant buy one get one free offer currently on all products. After browsing their website for a few minutes, this bag stood out to me, especially considering I'd been on the hunt for a leather look backpack for a long time. In fact, I was even more pleased with the appearance of the product when it arrived and I saw it in person. Not only is the bag extremely spacious, but it features various convenient pockets to store whatever you may need, all of which fasten securely. Therefore it would be ideal to carry small books to school, college of university, and the pockets provide a handy storage space for mobile phones and other knickknacks which you may require on a day-to-day basis. The bag also fastens with a drawstring as well as with a flap that fastens with a magnetic button, ensuring that all of the bag's contents are secure. The quality of the bag feels great, and the pleather looks very convincing, unlike some of the more plastic looking backpacks out there. Another brilliant feature is that the straps are adjustable, so you can alter them to suit you. My only criticism of the bag is that when I used it for the first time, one of the magnetic buttons which fastens the front pockets fell off; albeit the damage could easily be fixed. Despite this, I'd definitely recommend that you check out the website, as they have plenty of lovely products to suit everybody.
