Hubby & Wife style: Cases with a Giveaway & Link up

March 8, 2016



Hello all my lovely readers!  I want to start off today with thanking you for coming by and to several of you that entered last weeks survey I made for you. It has been nice seeing what content you love and would like to see more of. I will post some of the results of the survey in tomorrows post so be sure to come back to see what you recommended or suggested.

Ok, I will break the above promise just a bit and fill you in that many of you reported that you liked seeing the Hubby and Wife style posts as it “intrigued” you. Today’s Hubby and Wife style post is the first in which my husband and I collaborated and  received phone cases to review as we just upgraded our phones.


My husband and I love our new iPhones (mine being a 6s and his being a 6) and we have had our new phones for about a few months now but admit-tingly our cases were from Five Below after we got our phones. There was nothing wrong with cheap cases from Five Below but with cheap cases comes the easy wear and breaking as my husbands was coming to that point. This is where Caseapp came just in time AND they allowed my husband and I to customize our cases to the way we wanted them.



I choose to style my case with the custom template found on Caseapp and customize the case with my initials in cursive in the middle. I have had the case on my phone for almost a week and a half now and have dropped my phone from the kitchen table or dresser countless times with no cracks, scratches or breaking so I know it is durable for now. The material is a high quality plastic and is not like other cheap plastic cases I have seen or felt in the past.


My case goes just about with all my accessories and outfits (hence why I choose neutral colors for it, marble black, white and gold glitter) and it has quickly become my new favorite accessory.




Chantry’s Case and Opinion: I like my caseapp phone case. It is unique in the ways that it can be personalized, I chose to do a picture of my family, it can however be anything that the buyer wants it to be. I did run into a little bit of trouble when cropping the picture (user error not caseapp’s) because I put my wife’s head in the fold of the case so she is headless on my case. It still looks nice and is very unique but the user must pay careful attention  if they are using a photo for the case.



I will admit, I had my doubts about the durability of it and from a man’s prospective that’s the most important thing because let’s face it most men don’t care what their phone looks like but rather wants to know that their device is protected so they don’t have to spend more money to replace the hardware. I was a little afraid that the case would not protect my phone, it is very slim lined and open at both ends, I’m glad to say that it has offered adequate protection for my phone. The plastic is a strong hard plastic and seems durable enough to survive normal everyday use.


Caseapp’s cases and covers are a good way to protect your devices and express yourself while doing it. The cases are reasonably cost effective and provide decent protection. I need more time to be die hard sold on them as the only case I will ever need for any of my devices but thus far it has served its purpose well. I would buy from them again.
