So I got an iPhone about a year ago for the first time. Before that I was a student and just had a little one-trick-pony phone. I was so excited when I finally got one where the keyboard slides out from underneath when I was in college. I remember printing out Google directions to places and trying to read them as I drove (my manual, by the way-not easy). I even saved the sheets of printer paper with directions to places I go regularly (but can’t seem to remember how to get there) in my glove compartment.

Anyway, that was a fun trip down memory lane. My niece and nephew are gonna be like “HOW did you liiiiiivveeee???”

So I got an iPhone and was like, MY LIFE HAS CHANGED NO ONE HURT IT. So I got an intense Otter Box case because I was so afraid I was gonna kill it and not be able to afford another one. Everything was fine until…

I got a little tipsy in Connecticut visiting friends.

And put a Karl Strauss Brewery sticker on the back of it.


Then it looked like a high schooler owned it. It might as well have been an emo band sticker and not a brewery.

So I was done. I hardly ever drop my phone and I was so sick of the bulkiness. I wanted a pretty case, but not an expensive one. Then I came across this site where you can download free printables to insert into a clear iPhone case that costs $10. I was stoked.

Here is the comparison:

I absolutely love it. Check out all the awesome free prints they have at See That There! I love so many that I feel like I could change my cover every week.

Finally, a Real Person, adult phone. So pretty, so cheap.

    I did the same thing! People made fun of me for my otter box but I was like NO. This is SPECIAL. But now I am a normal person with a normal case :)

      Hahaha ya I’m so excited to have it feel so sleek after having that Otter Box on there for so long. And the printables on that site are SO. CUTE. I’m so stoked. Glad I wasn’t the only one who was paranoid for a while! :)
