I felt very special in customizing my own iPhone case and my laptop skin. Obviously I wanted something themed marble. Blogger duty. Sorry, not so sorry.
Marbleize your phone/laptop with Caseapp + Giveaway
Hello everyone! I took one week of vacation from blogging and I have been missing it but there was absolutely no time at all to blog or schedule posts in advance. I should be used to this, but I am not. So after meeting up with some friends I haven’t seen in quite a while, I am back to blogging. *clap clap*
And today it is time to talk about the two things that allow me to blog: my laptop and my phone. One for editing, writing and the other for posting on social media. I could not even think about blogging without one of the two. It would be just impossible. My laptop and my phone allow me to stay connected almost 24/7 and given their value, I treat them very gently.
To this extent, Caseapp* got in touch with me and asked me to choose two (!) of their cases and to write about them. I could have chosen an iPad case (very needed – mine has an elastic around it to keep it still) but I opted for a laptop skin and an iPhone case. Both customized by me! Absolutely easy and absolutely gorgeous in the end.
And you can do it too; Caseapp allows you to custom case and skin and I will explain in this post how to, but if you are in a rush and want to skip this part and go directly to the giveaway one (the juicy part), I won’t blame you! For today.
To customize or not to customize?
Well, I chose to customize. Maybe too much… my first attempt had layers of flowers on the corners and lot of writings. Fortunately I decided to wait and recreate something more subtle and evergreen.
First of all, Caseapp allows you to do multiple things with your chosen case:
- use their amazing presets (hello marble!)
- upload your images that will be set on the case
- the two above and customize them as you prefer
Most importantly, every move is guided and there is a preview of your work of how it would look when printed. So don’t be afraid to experiment, you can easily remove layers, add new ones and go back to the starting image. It is fun and quick, a perfect combo.
Customizable Macbook Skin
As a blogger, I love marble and at the same time I am sick of seeing it literally EVERYWHERE in the blogosphere but it’s so damn pretty (I feel like I have a double personality hidden inside myself though). Thus I decided I wanted some marbleized cover and to conclude my customization I had to add something opposite to my love and something that said ME in capital letters and that was the “F**k it” in white just around the famous apple. I love how it turned out: a statement piece with an alternative twist.
Moreover, the plastic skin is easy to apply on top of your laptop. Bubbles will appear but they can be removed easily by playing with them or by using a card and moving them to the edge of the skin. The only downside is that the skin is not a big protection for the laptop itself, since it is just a light adhesive layer but if you have a big puffy bag for your laptop, you are good to go. Or simply, be careful while carrying it around.
Customizable Phone Case
Instead talking about the phone case, here I had lot of troubles in a good way: too many options. I wanted a marble case to match the laptop skins, a kaleidoscope one, a funny one, one with little fruits, creating one myself…ahhh seriously my head was spinning around with thousands of ideas.
I ended up by choosing this kaleidoscope (hello kateidoscope!!!) of palm trees, very abstract and green, with the addition of my chosen word: HOLY. I love Ginsberg’s poetry – not to say I am pretty obsessed with it – and I do believe that everything we do good is holy. I want to tattoo this same word on my hand. But I am digressing now. Just need to stop being afraid of needles. Digressing again.
With my phone example, I choose the pre made palm trees image and I added HOLY whereas on the laptop skin I chose marble and therefore added a clipart with F**k It. Caseapp works for multiple types of phone and all the Apple family: iPad, Mac and iPhones. There is something for everybody, the quality is really good, shipping is very efficient and they are also offering you the possibility to win one customizable case of your own choice. But if that is not enough, I can also offer you a 20% discount code on their products with this code here: KATEIDOSCOPE20. Don’t miss it!!
