CaseApp + Giveaway

bijuleni-Caseapp, customized iphone case








Shop my Home Office Decor
Most of the time I can't quite find a phone case I absolutely adore. With CaseApp you can create your custom iphone case or customize the look of your laptop by creating a flirty or classy, depending on your preference, laptop skin. Other electronic devices you can customize include your iPod, iPad or Samsung Galaxy. CaseApp has many backgrounds and designs you can choose from as well as images, you can add text or you can also upload your own images. 

For the look of my custom laptop skin and iPhone case I decided to start from scratch and create my own designs. I uploaded two of my favourite images and background and tadah the best case and laptop skin there ever was. For the iPhone case I used the premade Light Pink Marble which CaseApp offers here, then uploaded one of my favourite llama images I found online and added the text ooh la la offered by CaseApp under their clipart selection. I sealed the deal with a glossy finish, but you can select  a matte finish if you prefer. The laptop skin is an easy way to update the look of your laptop, although technically its purpose is to act as a protective skin from scratches. It leaves no residue when removed and the application was super easy. 

Overall, the website is super easy to navigate and easily you can customize your laptop skins or iPhone cases.The only problem you will come across is that the possibilities are endless and it may be hard for you to decide what you want to create, but take your time. This is your masterpiece!  

CaseApp is giving my readers, (that's you!) 20% off when you use the code BIJULENI20 to customize the look of your electronics at checkout! The perfect gift for Valentine's Day, because we all love customized items. Code is valid until Janaury 29th.

101 things in 1001 days


The new year has arrived and everyone has most likely come up with their New Year Resolutions lists. I came up with my own last year, in this post. Let's be honest, I miserably failed to complete all of these. There is something about lists we all love though. Lists motivate you, inspire you, make you feel more organized and crossing off items off your list gives you an internal satisfaction that you have succeeded in something. You feel a sense of accomplishment. I have definitely had my share of failed lists. Not going to lie, we all have. When I came across Design Darling's 101 things in 1001 days, I knew this was a list I had to create for myself and with 1001 days to complete it, the list seems attainable and better than New Year Resolutions.
