Christmas With CaseApp. (& Giveaway)

Tuesday, 12 December 2017

I am not doing any type of Christmas gift guide this year. Everyone does them so I am sure there is already one out there that caters to your needs. But I did want to share one little gift idea, which a lot of people don't tend to think about and that is custom phone cases and laptop skins. I don't know about you but I'd love to receive a new sassy phone case or a chic laptop skin for Crimbo. CaseApp asked me to try out some of their products and of course I couldn't refuse. I have worked with CaseApp before (here) so their products have already been tried and tested on prk. But I can confirm yet again, you get nothing but top quality from this company. The site is easy to navigate, the product selection is brill, you can customise your own products and the delivery is fast, what more do you want eh?  

Anyway, shall we talk about the products I picked out this time? I knew I wanted a new laptop skin so thats where I headed first. I did want to customise one but I fell in love with a few designs they already had. It was either between 'glass beach' or 'brushstrokes'. Obviously I went with brush strokes, I just loved the clean monochrome look. I peeled off my previous laptop skin (which came off a dream and didn't leave any marks) and applied my new one... it made my laptop feel brand spanking new again.  

As for my phone case, I went with something a little more Christmasy. I chose the design 'pine' as again, I just loved the clean look. I also went with the matte finish, I always think they feel more expensive with the smooth texture. When it first arrived I was a bit worried that it would soon discolour, but I have had it on my phone for maybe a week now and it is still perfect which is a win! I think it would be a lovely idea to design a custom phone case for someones Christmas present, or just in general to be honest. Design a photo collage or an illustration and gift them a one of a kind, thoughtful piece.

It is now your chance to design a phone case or laptop skin. I am running a giveaway with CaseApp and all you have to do is follow me on Bloglovin, and comment you favourite thing about Christmas down below. The comp is worldwide and ends on the 20th of December. Good luck!

P.s I have a discount code too. Use the code POPKAY20 for 20% off, woohoo!

Statement Earrings.

Tuesday, 28 November 2017

I am actually obsessing over statement earrings at the minute, I think everyone is to be fair. Tassels seem to be everyones favourite (I did a post on some here), but big bling-y ones are my go to.
I've picked up a few pairs recently so I thought I would share. Prices start from 99p (I know right, 99p!!) up to £5. I don't pay whole lot for trend pieces so these are great if you want to keep on a budget.

So, the first pair are gold discs from H&M (these are the 99p ones!!). They are surprisingly comfortable and light weight which is always a plus with statement earrings. I hate it when they make your lobes look dead droopy. I did get these ones in the sale so I don't know if they will still be in store, but they are deffo not online anymore. I feel like if you did some research you could find a similar pair. Amazon and Ebay are great for cheap dupes.

You might think the next pair are a bit granny-ish, but I love em. I paid around £2.50 for these (I got a bit of extra discount) from Laura Ashley. I think the oil slick shell and the hammered metal go really well together, it's a lovely contrast. Oh, and again they are not too heavy so they don't give the saggy lobe look, win! But anyway, I think its about time we moved onto the prettiest earrings ever isn't it...

Tadaaaa! How nice are these? You'd never guess they were from Asda would you, and only £5. These total bargains look like they come straight from Mango or Zara right? I love the bling & the gold &the star design... everything about them is just so stylish and very on trend at the minute. I couldn't find these online but they will deffo still be in store, I didn't get them too long ago. Out of the 3 these are 100% my favourite. 

Which pair are your faves?

Custom Stickers With StickerApp (& Giveaway Closed).

Thursday, 9 November 2017

I don't think you realise how much you can actually do with stickers. The possibilities are endless... this sounds a bit random doesn't it? Haha, let me start from the beginning. A little while ago StickerApp contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out some of their custom stickers. At first I was like, what could I do with stickers? So I visited their site and I was surprisingly so inspired. 

I decided to have a look through the sticker library first, just to get an idea of what I was working with. This is basically a part of the site where you can buy stickers designed by artists. I picked a few stickers from a couple different designers, including Bobby BrownMuskegon, Amity Price and Anna Hulda Bergman. I got a few for my nephew, he loves anything to do with monsters. I also got a couple to add to birthday presents and birthday cards, it gives them a nice personal touch.

After browsing through the sticker library (for far too long) I decided that I wanted to have a go at customising some myself. I wanted to go with my blog logo, which is the prk scribble you see on my banner. I downloaded my image, picked my cut, size, material (gloss coated vinyl) and the quantity that I wanted. It is literally as easy as that. 
When my package arrived I was so surprised with the quality of the stickers! I didn't expect anything bad from StickerApp, but for the price the stickers were just more than I expected! I feel like custom stickers would be a perfect alternative to business cards. Well, I have been handing my blog stickers out like business cards anyway haha.

I am also holding a giveaway with StickerApp, giving one of you guys the chance to win £25 worth of stickers (*Ends 17th November*). To enter simply make sure you follow me and stickerappinspo on Instagram and comment down below, just letting me know you have entered. Feel free to tag your friends on Insta too! Good Luck!

How would you use your stickers if you won?

The Velvet Bag.

Wednesday, 1 November 2017

I feel like I am seeing mustard and velvet everywhere at the minute. Clothing, accessories, home decor... you name it! So when I saw the mustard and velvet combo in bag form, I had to grab it. This across body bag (or shoulder bag, you choose) is from good old Primarni. I can't actually remember how much it was. It was either £7 or £9, which is a complete bargain. The quality is pretty good too, especially the chain, it has a nice feel and weight to it.
The stitching kind of reminds me of the YSL know, with the like V/arrow design. I think they deffo got the inspiration from that or maybe even Gucci.

With 'trend' pieces I don't like to spend a lot of money as I do tend to get bored of them pretty easily (although, I don't think I will ever tire of this beaut) so Primark is always the first place I head to. They have some amazing pieces in at the minute, I definitely need another trip to pick up some more autumnal bits.

Are you into the mustard and/or velvet trend?

Happy Halloween.

Tuesday, 31 October 2017

Halloween is my favourite time of the year, well its probably on par with Christmas but its still up there. It gives me an excuse to sit in my room watching Halloween films, whilst eating sweets and playing with my sfx make up. Last Halloween I went to Farmageddon which was bloody terrifying. This year I went on a tour around Smithills Hall which is like an old manor house. Lets just say some weird *excuse my french* shit happened there. 

I haven't really had the chance to dress up this year, but I did manage to have a play with my special effects make up. I used scar wax for the first time, which isn't the easiest thing to work with but hopefully I will get the hang of it as it does give the make up a realistic look. 

Anyway, that was my Halloween. What did you guys get up to?
