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?

  6. To keep your phone safe wherever you go, you need to get the iPhone cover case and it is really very essential. Some of you might think why do I need a cover for my iPhone but it is necessary to use a cover so that your iPhone will be protected from any damage during using or travelling.

  8. I have a Jack Wills sillicone case on the back of my phone, but had to buy one of those cheap screen protectors because I'm paranoid of scratching!

    These look great as they protect it from scratching whilst it's in your bag!

  13. Do you know if Caseable will work for US customers?

    The pin up is SOOO cute! I have an obsession with all of the cute pin-ups. Have you ever checked out Anne Taintor? It's not pinups whereas it's more 1950's housewives ads with sarcastic humor. You might get a kick out of it!

  15. That pin-up cover is amazing! The one I currently use on my phone is kinda holographic and crystal-like (there's a photo of it on this post http://jemappellehannah.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/i-did-some-damage-to-my-bank-balance.html ☺) X

  20. I recently saw this great case where the case actually housed a spare battery for those that can't seem to keep a charge all day. I, like many others I'm sure, struggle with keeping my battery fresh for my entire work day since I use it so much for work purposes. I personally have this awesome monster iPhone Case that is nothing but aesthetically pleasing, but now I'm thinking about my options for a battery phone case.
