summer cases

August 23, 2016

I've always been such a sucker for phone cases but I've definitely gotten better as the years have gone by.  Back when I was a sophomore in high school, I had over 10 cases for one phone. That's a bit ridiculous if you ask me. Now I've settled for more practical and simple cases.

1. Casetify | This was actually a birthday gift my one of my friends, thanks connie ^_^. It has two of my favorite things: cactuses (yes I know it's cacti, but I don't like that word) and frenchies! The case is protective and actually hovers over the front of the phone whereas some cases don't offer as much coverage in the front. Casetify has come out with a new concept where the back, where the graphic is, can be switched out giving you more versatility while having the same bumper. One thing that can be seen as a pro or a con, is the protruded button where the on/off and volume buttons are. While holding my phone I sometimes grasp my phone resulting in either the volume increasing to the point where I'm about to go deaf or turning off my phone, which can be annoying. Overall, I'm loving the case because a lot of cute cases aren't of high quality but this cutie sure is!

2. Totallee Case | This case was actually gifted to me, but I do love it. I was a little skeptical at first because of how thin it looks but it actually does do a good job of protecting my phone as well. It also doesn't feel cheap but it doesn't make your phone bulky. This case is great for the stylish minimalist. I love how simple is and the transparency of the case allows me to add a touch of creativity to make my phone stand out as mine. I've put stickers inside the case as well as patches and even photos of my friends and me. There's endless amounts of ways you can customize your case with this simple, sleek, minimal case.

3. Milkyway Case | I've had a few milkyway cases and I always gravitate toward this brand because of the cute graphics they offer and the wallet-friendly prices. However, in this case, you really pay for the quality. When you first receive it, the quality looks great but within a few months, the graphic starts to fade. One of my cases is about 80% faded. The quality of the actually case though, is not bad, it's definitely better than the hard, snap-on cases but of course it's not going to be as protective as a speck case or otterbox.

Céline belt bag

August 9, 2016

Say hello to my new bag! The Céline belt bag. I've had my eye on this beauty for quite some time and I decided to choose this as my 22nd birthday gift. I am, once again, in love with another black bag. If you follow Chriselle Lim, she has this bag in white and I love it in white, but white is just not practical for me. Then, I wanted it in a nude/beige color because all my other bags are black. Like all of them. However, over the months I was just drawn back to black. Black matches with EVERYTHING and plus most of my shoes are black.

While shopping at Neiman Marcus, I was actually close to getting another bag (which I will probably be getting soon so I won't reveal the name yet) but my heart kept telling me to go look at Celine. I was also close to getting an Antigona, but I didn't love it as much as I love the belt bag.  Personally, I would choose Celine over any other brand, so for the Antigona and belt bag to be around the same price, I had to go with the belt bag. The antigona is obviously gorgeous as well, but I feel like it's more contemporary while the belt bag is more of a classic that I'll be able to use when I'm an old lady so it just seems like a better investment. This is my own opinion of course, to each their own!

While telling my dad I liked the belt bag, we started calling it the moustache bag haha.
