Cath Kidston iPhone Case Review







When I was given the chance to review this Cath Kidston phone case for my iPhone 5s, I jumped at the chance! Cath Kidston phone cases are one of my favourites for jazzing up my phone and its a great addition to my collection! I'm a great lover of phone cases, having a pile of them sitting in my room. However Cath Kidston cases hold a special place in my heart. They're perfect for unleashing the girly girl from within while at the same time, protecting your phone (a.k.a your life source if you're as addicted as me!). 

The case gives good protection to the phone, ensuring you don't get any scratches from everyday wear and tear. My previous cases have received considerable use and the pattern has worn off slightly in the top corner but its pretty impressive seeing as though I take my phone everywhere. I've also dropped my phone with the pink case on so it has a few cracks but nothing stopping me from using it. Plus my phone wasn't damaged at all!

I'd definitely recommend a Cath Kidston phone case if you're interested in investing. At £24.95, the price is quite steep however they're definitely worth it, and the compliments you'll get will brighten up your day!

Florida Clothes Haul


America is the place to shop, and I definitely shopped til I dropped! Admittedly I probably bought more makeup than clothes while I was out there as I didn't get chance to go to a Forever 21 or anything like that. However I did get some amazing bargains! Factor in the exchange rate and it just gets even better! Hope you enjoy this little haul, a makeup haul post will be posted soon!

 Nike Roshe Run - Footlocker

This was definitely by far my favourite purchase of the whole trip. I've been eyeing the Nike Roshes for ages and thought I'd bite the bullet and finally buy some in Florida. They were only $70 in America instead of £70 so it worked out at around £45! I originally wanted a black pair however my dad managed to convince me to get this dark blue colour (the photo makes it look black but I promise they're not!) They were such a good bargain I even got my friend Bekah a pink pair! I've only worn them a few times but they're the comfiest shoes I've ever owned. I'm going to wear these everyday for the rest of my life, no exaggeration.

 SO Red Velvet Flats - Kohl's

I was shopping in Kohl's when I came across these shoes for only $8, thats literally like £5! I definitely couldn't let type of bargain slip away. On top of that I had a $10 off coupon and 30% off! 

 Champion Workout Shorts - Bealls

I was flicking through the sales racks in Bealls when I came across these workout shorts and thought they'd be cute for doing some exercise (if I ever do...) and they were only about $10 so a total bargain!

 Hang Ten T-Shirt - Kohl's

I picked up this top from the clearance rails in Kohl's for only about $9 plus the discounts I mentioned above. Bargain!

 Pink Vest Top - Hollister

Hollister in America is so unbelievably cheap, completely different to how much it is in the UK! I was looking through the store and they had a 60% off clearance event so I ended up getting this top for $4! No way would you find a top in Hollister that cheap over here!


 Whatever Top - Ross

I saw this top while searching through Ross and thought it was so sassy, totally me!

 Embellished Jumper - Hollister

This was another bargain I picked up in Hollister for only $15. Jumpers are a staple in my wardrobe and I love to wear them with jeans and trainers for a simple everyday look. This is definitely a great pick to add to my wardrobe!


Marc by Marc Jacobs iPad Case - T K Maxx

The thing I love about T J Maxx is that you can find Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs etc dotted around the place at affordable prices. No way would you find a MK watch in your local T K Maxx! This iPad case was only $30! I was going to get a pink case for my MacBook but they didn't have a size that would fit mine.

Burgers and Shopping


Top - Topshop / Skirt - Primark / Jacket - Persunmall* / Sandals - Singapore


I went to Paddock Mall in Ocala yesterday on the search for some Nike Roshes for me and my friend Bekah. After long last I finally found them and got myself a dark blue pair and Bekah a bright pink pair. They're beautiful and so so comfy. Plus they're way cheaper over here! I picked up the Marc Jacobs iPad case in T J Maxx would you believe! They also had Michael Kors watches and purses too!


On the way home from Ocala we stopped off at Five Guys for a burger and fries. I got the little hamburger with lettuce, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms and BBQ sauce! We also got 2 large fries however when my dad picked up our order the lady informed him that 1 large fries serves 5 people... And she wasn't wrong! The portion sizes are massive in Five Guys! We could only eat 1 portion between the 4 of us!

Sunbathing and Froyo


Top - Topshop / Shorts - Pull & Bear / Sandals - Singapore / Sunglasses - H&M


Today was like the other days, with sunbathing and food being main factors. It was sooo hot today, about 30°! It shows as I've gone and got myself a tan line on my face, not cool. 


I made a stop at Starbucks and had a refreshing Trenta Valencia Orange Refresher. Exactly what I needed in that weather! Trenta is so massive, it'd be amazing if we had that size in the UK!


I went to Panda Express and had my usual of fried rice, orange chicken and mushroom chicken. Panda is one of my favourite American restaurants and I go every year without fail!


Lastly I finished the day off with a trip to Peachwave for some self serve froyo. I had vanilla, fudge brownie and salted caramel froyo topped with sour worms, mango boba, strawberry boba, strawberries, mangoes, chocolate chips and hot fudge sauce. Mmmmm!

Pancakes and Pool Day


Top - Topshop / Shorts - Pull & Bear / Shoes - Vans @ Schuh / Sunglasses - H&M


Florida day 2 has been amazing like imagined, except for a few things. Firstly I headed to IHOP for breakfast. I got sent an email voucher from IHOP giving me a free Rooty Tooty Fresh n Fruity so that's exactly what I had! (Pancakes with strawberries and cream, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon and hash browns incase you were wondering!) It was delicious obviously and their pancakes do not disappoint!


Next I went to Belk trying to buy a new bottle of Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation but they didn't have my shade. Super annoying but apparently they're getting a delivery tomorrow or Friday so I can hopefully get it then. Then I spotted the most beautiful Michael Kors purse for $80 but my 20% off coupon excluded pretty much anything worth buying in the store so I'm going to have to wait until Friday so I can use my other coupon. If the purse isn't there I'll cry. 


After that we made our daily stop to the pool for a lil tanning sesh. It was pure paradise. 

Tonight I'm going to go down to Kohl's and Target and shop til I drop!

Summer Lovin

 

Top - Pull & Bear / Shorts - Primark / Shoes - Rock & Republic @ Kohl's / Sunglasses - H&M

After nearly 24 hours of travelling yesterday, I'm finally in Florida! Today was the first full day and I've already got a bit of a tan! 


Firstly I went and got an Iced Caramel Flan Latte from Starbucks which was too good! The amount of different flavours over here is crazy, UK Starbucks need to get their act together! 


Next stop was the pool, where I started to read The Perks Of Being A Wallflower again. I started reading it a few months ago then somehow stopped halfway through, hopefully I can finally finish it this week. If I do it'll be the first book I've properly read for years, sounds terrible I know! 


Last stop was Dunkin Donuts! Second iced coffee drink of the day but it was worth it! They have a happy hour every day after 2pm so I ended up getting this huge drink for only $1.50! It was so big I couldn't even finish it! 

I've just consumed the biggest steak I've ever seen in my life and I'm going to waddle around the shops like a beached whale looking for bargains!

#ACCESSALLASOS


This here is probably one of the highlights of my blogger life. I applied for the #ACCESSALLASOS blogger programme on a whim after seeing some pictures on Instagram of other people's welcome boxes and all the events in ASOS' flash London HQ. Never did I think that I would actually be accepted! I've been eagerly awaiting the postman for days until this magic box arrived. I love how ASOS have personalised everyone's gifts and spent the time to actually go through everyone's blogs to see what they like. 

Everyone's packages were all different, people got everything from socks to T-Rex cookie cutters. In mine, I got some Elegant Touch nail art stickers and a gold infinity midi ring. I love painting my nails on the weekends when school is out so this will be an exciting touch to the regular nail painting routine. I also love the midi ring as it's so cute and easy to wear.

I'm so happy I was picked (along with many others) as ASOS is THE place to shop online, seriously they stock everything! Hopefully I'll be able to attend some of their blogger events and get to meet some fellow ASOS insiders!

If you'd like to get involved with the #ACCESSALLASOS programme, you can apply here.
