Ora Kiely Optic Stem Wallet Case

Ora Keily Optic Stem Wallet Case *

Recently, I was given this pretty Ora Kiely case to review for my iPhone 5S. I've not always been a fan of the wallet cases for the iPhone, and always thought that they were just for the people who love practicality, where as I'm an all for fashion girl, and would prefer to be pulling out an iPhone covered in decoden pieces 90% of the time! But when I was given a choice of three cases, I chose the Ora Kiely wallet case over the clip on cases, because I wanted to try something new, I really love the simple and cute print and colours... and I kinda like the practicality! I also thought about my phone's safety too, since I am forever dropping my phone. Luckily, since I upgraded I haven't dropped my phone more times than I count on my fingers!

It's pretty simple, and holds the phone in really nicely, and all buttons and the speakers are accessible and free. The wallet's exterior is made of almost like an oil cloth material, so any near spills are easily avoided and cleaned off. It's also got a easy carry wrist strap, and three card slots which would be so useful for maybe a night out or when you don't have a lot of space in your bag for both your phone and purse, or you just don't want to carry a bag and just need your phone and a couple of cards!

As for everyday use, I've had this case a few days now, and I've had to get used to how I hold the case for texting, tweeting, and calls. Now I'm used to it, it's not a problem but it was a little annoying at first. The only thing I'm still not used to is that the popper faces the back, and I'm opening it from the back to the front, which I think should be the opposite way round... If you know what I mean. That being said, it is the only thing I'm not too keen on with this case, and other wise I love it! I'll probably use this case for those times I pop into London and need my phone to hand and safe, or for nights out, or when I don't have space for my purse in my bag. I've got this case just in time for McBusted on Saturday which me and Jess are super excited about! I'll have my phone to hand for a lots pictures, and on my person at all times for safe keeping!
What are your thoughts on wallet cases?

What Cat Wore: Easter Bunny

Jumper - Dorothy Perkins
Skirt * - Dahlia (via Swap Shop)
Socks - Primark
Sandals - Topshop
Bunny Scrunchie - Primark

Oh, so my photos kept bleaching out thanks to my super pale jumper today but I couldn't not post this up, because it's an outfit I really wanted to post, being themed all Eastery for Easter Sunday! Me and the family are just about to go out to my Nan and Granddad's house for our annual Easter family dinner! I'm so excited for it, since I haven't eaten any of my Nan's amazing greek food in such a long time! And it's nice to catch up with family isn't it?
I'm wearing my new bunny jumper that I bought in the Dorothy Perkins sale last week and I'd been keeping an eye on it since it first came into store. I managed to get the last one in my size and I love that it's a thin knit and tight fitting since I haven't got one like it. I was going to wear my duck print skirt, but I decided to wear the Dahlia skirt I managed to nab at the Blogger Swap Shop Party back in Feb. I love it! It's all easter themed with the bunny jumper and the egg shell coloured skirt here! I've even got mini egg looking nails and my bunny scrunchie on me. Cute no? ;) 
I hope you're all having a lovely Easter Sunday and get lots of eggs!

What Cat Wore: Daisies & Denim

Swing Dress - Primark
Denim Jacket - Vintage
Skater Shoes - Topshop
Necklace - Topshop
 
The weather was very deceitful this morning! It looks so warm and sunny out there, but when I stepped out there was an unexpected chilly wind! I was clearly tricked by the weather, and being in a rush out his morning didn't help as I decided to wear one of my favourite casual dresses, thanks to the pretty daisy print, the super comfy fine knit meaning I felt that cold wind quite easy! I then ended up opting out black tights from my outfit, but doing this meant I got to show off my latest purchase, my white skater shoes! I've kept my eye on these white beauts from Topshop for a while, then I finally caved and bought them earlier this week. I've really got a thing for white shoes at the moment (I've got a pair of white boots next on my list), and I knew with that in mind and these being perfect for casual days, it was an absolute must! I will be honest and say they hurt a little bit the first couple of times I wore them, but after few wears they're broken into and start to get super comfortable! I think I need them in a couple more colours... Maybe the tropical print and the gingham ones? I love them! How do you feel about the skater shoe trend?
