Searching for… a New iPhone Case

Need to get my 4th iPhone case.

I got my first one when I got my phone, paid a good $30 on it and it broke after 2 weeks (I dropped it numerous times). It’s just a plain black case.

I got my second and third from ebay because I refuse to pay so much for the case again. I paid approximately $5 for a pair of cases (meant for couples). I used both since my boyfriend still has a old school dumbphone. I dropped them numerous times but both of them were still intact. I retired my 2nd one because I went to a concert and got them to sign on it, since it was the only thing thats sign-able apart from my skin (just kidding). I am planning on retiring my 3rd one since the paint on it is fading, poor panda is going to be nose-less soon. I had absolutely not expectation on their quality but boy was I surprised. I dropped them at least 5 times a week and they are still sturdy! (And you can see why I NEED a case for my phone, I have total respect for people who has an iPhone without case and somehow manage not to break/scratch it!)

So here I am. Looking for a new iPhone case. I stumbled across the site called Society6 when I was browsing pinterest.  It’s a site where artists submit their work and it can be made into iPhone cases, iPod/iPhone skins, laptop/iPad skins, art prints, stretched canvases, stationery cards, hoodies, and t-shirts. There are so so so many designs on there and I can spend literally hours just browsing through all of them! There are cute animal ones, hilarious ones, super artsy ones, ones with quotes, etc etc. Here are 9 iPhone cases that I really like but I need opinion on which one is better! All their iPhone cases at $35USD, and shipping to US is $5, to Canada is $10. I believe the shipping is flat rate since when I change the number of items in the cart the shipping remains unchanged.

Saturday Love

So… I just realized that my posts are kind of sporadic and don’t really have a routine so here’s my first attempt of having a more regularly posting schedule!

Here’s a list of things I have currently love this week! I think this is a pretty good way to wrap up the week!

I currently love…

1. MAC Pearlglide Liner in Black Swan

I got these couple days ago when I found out the MAC Vera Collection’s release date got moved up. I actually got both Black Swan and Undercurrent. Black Swan may look ordinary when you see it but it looks absolutely stunning when you swatch it. It’s a black with blue tone and silver glitter. I have never seen any other colour like this.

This is the first time I tried any pencil liners from MAC and I am pleasantly surprised by the formula. It is extremely soft with excellent colour payoff. I tried it for the first time yesterday and there’s absolutely no tugging when I put it on and it stayed on for 14 hours with no smudging until I took it off. It’s opaque in one stroke, don’t even need to go over it for the second time! I thought I would have a really tough time taking it off since its staying power is so good, but turns out my cleanser can easily do the job!

I used to be in love with Urban Decay’s  24/7 Glide On Pencils (I still am), but I think I might have found a new love in terms of eyeliner!
