Caseable & Accessorize iPhone Covers | Review

 I've wanted an iPhone sooo badly over the last few months, and my kind Uncle gave me his hand-me-down iPhone 4s back in November. It was in perfect nick, I was over the moon to receive one at last! One of my favourite things about iPhones are the covers you can get for them; all of my old phones weren't that popular, so cases were pretty difficult to find for them. I currently own these two cases for my iPhone, and I switch them up constantly. I know every Tom, Dick and Harry owns an iPhone these days, so I thought a review on both would be useful and hopefully interesting for you guys.
The first cover I picked up was this turquoise floral clip cover, from Accessorize. They sell these in-store and online, but I actually purchased it from Meteor in Dundrum (an Irish phone company). What attracted me to this cover was mainly the colour (no surprise there), but also the protective cover for the phone's front screen. Unfortunately I'm quite a clumsy person, and my phones always end up a tad battered after a few months. I've heard endless complaints about how easy iPhone screens are to break - and how expensive they are to fix, so I bought this to save myself money in the future. I use this cover constantly, especially if I'm out and about. I've had it for nearly 3 months now and it's still in perfect condition. The front flap not only protects the screen, but it also stops it from getting grubby. It was €10 to buy as far as I remember and 100% worth it. I plan on buying more soon!
Caseable recently contacted me to see if I was interested in designing my own custom iPhone cover and reviewing it a few weeks ago. Of course I said yes; the idea of putting a picture of my choice on my phone cover excited me! I chose my favourite pin-up girl: Gil Elvgren's 'Riding High' witch from 1959. It's extremely easy to design the cover yourself on the website, it gives you easy to follow instructions along the way. It's such a great idea for gifts; especially for friends and family members. You can add personal photographs, a picture of their favourite band, painting etc - it's such a brilliant idea! The case itself is made from sturdy plastic and it protects the phone well. However, my phone did fall off of my bed last week and the case slightly broke where the volume control buttons are. However, it doesn't affect the phone or the case, and it's barely noticeable. It's €24.90 for each iPhone 4s desig. Caseable also let you create covers for a range of phones, iPads, Kindles etc. I highly recommend checking the website out - I love my unique phone case; I'm constantly being asked where I got it!
Do you own an iPhone? What cover/s do you have?
