Let's talk about 'Protection'

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has dropped their phone multiple times and have had to get it repaired a few too many times, 3 times to be exact but would've been 4 if I got it repaired again.

Phones are basically everyone's lifelines now a days, you gotta keep up with the fast paced social media advances and that's partly the reason why I've come to drop mine so many times. Pulling it out excitedly from my pocket and then dropping it, to upgrading the system for it to just totally crash and go crazy on me.
Recently I decided enough is enough so I upgraded to the iPhone 6 and made it crystal clear to myself that I will take absolute care of this one (no more clumsy Mariel).

The first step to taking care of a new gadget be it phone or camera or anything is to get the appropriate case for them.
I was very lucky and glad when 'gocustomized' reached out to me literally days after getting the phone. 

Phone cases are my weak spots with any kind of phone, I just think they can totally add character to your phone and there are so many amazing designs to choose from but the one thing I have never done is customize my own so I was excited to do just that. 
For my case I chose to use a photo of the Eiffel Tower I took during sunset. This photo is by far one of my favourite photos I took especially of the city with the mixture of colours, the tower being the centre of attention and the Pont Alexandre III just poking out at the bottom, I just love it. I also have this photo as my cover photo in pretty much all my social media sites so it was only fitting to get it as my case too.
I also decided to add my name 'Mariel Janina' at the bottom just for a bit of self promotion but also makes it so much more personal.
'GoCustomized' is a great site for getting your very own personalised phone cases like I did. What's good about it is also the fact you can get the option for extra protection like I did with the hard cover (especially since I've already dropped this one but thanks to the case, nothing disastrous happened).
They also have such a wide range of phones they cater for 'cause you know not everyone's a fan of the Apple. 

So if you're looking for a new phone case, why not make your own phone case and if so then I'd totally recommend checking this site out.

  1. I really like the case you made, plus the photo you used is so pretty! Phone Cases are also my weakness, but never done anything customised. This sounds really cool :D

  5. Hey Mariel!
    I'm in love with this case :) It looks so ethereal and lovely--so cool that you took it yourself! I'm obsessed with how customized it is to you. (This blog post title is perfection btw)
    It's funny because I actually just upgraded to a new iphone 6 less than a week ago! I keep dropping my phone and being the clumsy person that I am I managed to drop my iphone 6 as I was opening the box...honestly, that would happen to me. my iphone case finally came in the mail! Thank the heavens haha but it's not as cute or custom as yours
    Anyways, love your blog and can't wait to see more! :)
