Introduction to: LoveCases

I hope you are all doing well. Happy Summer! I hope you’ve had a great start to Summer. We’ve been treated with this lovely weather. Today I wanted to introduce you to LoveCases, a phone accessories brand. It was that time of year to upgrade my phone! Who doesn’t love new things? When the Samsung Galaxy S20 was first announced, I fell in love and could not wait until upgrade time. No surprise really, I adore Samsung, I have the whole collection now – Samsung Galaxy Buds and Samsung Galaxy Watch.

Well that came around and I was soon upgrading my phone, in turn that meant I needed a new phone case. I love bringing my personality out in my phone case, I can look for hours trying to find one! I’m so specific when it comes to phone cases, nothing too big or colourful, really just simple will do. Also I adore the Cloud Blue colour so I have to keep that on display. I was shopping around online and came across LoveCases, I fell in love all over again.

Some of these cases are gorgeous and they even cater for most phone brands, I was actually shocked with the choice on offer! I’m not sure if all phones can be found on LoveCases but if you’re looking for a new phone case, you should definitely check them out. Their selection is also pretty impressive! I fell in love with so many different cases, it was a little hard to chose. I feel there’s something for everyone there, the range is definitely a good one.

I was on the website for just a little bit! It was really hard in the end to chose just one, so um I walked away with ordering three… oops! What? I had to take advantage of the 3 for 2 offer! It did take me a little while to chose, do I have that phone case? Or that phone case? It’s been a while since I took this long and fell in love with a range of cases. I definitely know where to go in the future! Also the phone cases are really good value at £8 each, I was able to get three for £16, a right bargain when I was looking at over £20 for just one.

Now, do you want to see what phone cases I picked up?

White Stars & Moons Clear Phone Case

White Leopard Print Clear Phone Case

White Cloudy Clear Phone Case

They’re all so beautiful aren’t they!? You can see why it took me forever to chose, also the Cloud Blue colour on the Samsung Galaxy S20 suits these types of cases so well. I really love it, also with the White Cloudy Clear Phone Case it really suits it. It actually looks like the sky! Another reason for choosing three is so I can interchange them and have a spare just in case. You never know what could happen. Also at the moment this is more important than ever, least I can change them over and make sure they’re cleaned properly.

I’m definitely going to bear this brand in mind in the future! It will be great to see what cases they bring out. Also they’re slowly starting to branch out to other accessories, including Phone Loops, Popsockets and even AirPod cases, these can all match your phone case as well. There’s also a small range of cases that can even be personalised, whether that’s your full name or just the initials! You could really treat yourself here and have a great selection of accessories for your phone.

I hope you have enjoyed this little review! Have you heard of LoveCases before?

I hope you’ve had a lovely start to June. As it’s the beginning of a new month, now is the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of May. Then create new Goals for June.

Goodbye May! Hello June!

I hope you and your family are safe and well. Can you believe June is here? What happened with May! I don’t know about you, but I feel like May went faster than April.

I’m not sure what June will bring but hopefully, whatever it is, it will be good! Of course, my Favourites are a little different at the moment, unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do much.

5 steps to be more organised

It’s no secret I am an organised person. Over the years of being a blogger, I have shared a couple of tips with you, from keeping organised as a blogger to Get Organised month. I have joked with so many people that I should give them some of my organisational skills. They just love what I do and how I do it, it was always a running joke at the office. To me, I just feel normal, sometimes I don’t even feel like I’m being organised until someone mentions it to me.

Today’s post is no different! I have another 5 steps to be more organised in your day to day life.

My productive morning routine

Has anyone else been having productive mornings since the start of lockdown? Now I have an extra two hours in the morning before work, rather than travelling to work, my mornings have been completely different. I know I could have a line in but I prefer to be productive in the mornings. Also, I’m still going to bed the same time, so why not a couple of hours to my self.

I hope I can keep this routine going after lockdown but it will be difficult Monday to Friday with travelling to work. I can see this continuing Saturday and Sunday though, we will have to see! I recently shared ways to keep busy during the lockdown, but I didn’t explain what my mornings are like. How is your quarantine going? Let me know in the comments!
