Beauty at House of Fraser (& Giveaway)

Beauty at House of Fraser (& Giveaway)My make-up bag is looking pretty empty. I don’t wear much make-up anyway, but it has gotten to the point that my 7-year old now has more make-up than me. *sob, sob* So I’ve been looking for some new beauty products. And as always, I need new lipstick (can you ever have too many lipsticks??). I am sure you’re all in the same position. Plus, with spring approaching, who doesn’t want some new make-up to brighten your face?! So, when House of Fraser asked me to hold a giveaway for my readers, I jumped at the chance.

Cool CaseApp Covers (& Worldwide Giveaway)

Cool CaseApp Covers & Giveaway

Obviously it is fun picking out new covers and cases for your mobiles and iPads. But you know what’s even more fun? Designing your very own. So I was thrilled when the lovely people from CaseApp offered me the chance to design a new case for my iPad.

Although the CaseApp website has loads of designs to choose from, you can upload your own design or photos. I picked a simple three-photo collage. But the entire design and ordering process was quite simple. The toughest part was choosing the photos. And once I ordered my case, it took four days to receive it (with the standard delivery).

It took about two seconds to place the case on the iPad and it feels very secure. We have found our case to be really sturdy (Dubz has dropped the iPad twice in the two times he has used it last week). The photos look bright and of a high quality. If you would like to order a case or skin for your mobile, laptop, iMac or iPad, you can receive 20% off your order with code CALIFORNIACASE.
