Have you ever bought something that was made with such high quality that it lasted for years? I'm talking more then 5-7 years?
They just don't make things the way they used to anymore. For example my IKEA dresser drawer. I bought it in the year 2012 and by 2014 I realized that t has been secretly sucking my clothes to the back of the broken drawer that I kept refilling it with clothes... at least I found all my other clothing...
My point is things are made to just throwaway.
I like to invest my money in product I know will last. I like the feeling of good quality product. I have been on a hunt for things made with 1. LOVE 2. THE CUSTOMER IN MIND 3. GOOD QUALITY
Lucky for me I found an amazing company based in the UK @casemade that uses high quality Italian leather to create the perfect phone/wallet case!
I was super excited to use Casemade's products because I don't like using cases and when I do they have to be able to close when all my cards are inside. The feel of the leather and stitching remind me of my grandmothers shoes haha! The smell of the fine Italian leather, so soft and yet so refined.
Suffice to say I feel like a boss using it!
I suppose the greatest part of this story is where they began. Who are the founders and what they are really all about.
Founded by Alex and Toby, men on a mission to create something amazing! These two always wanted to own their one company and designed all the cases themselves! They offer their customers personal service and insist they get feedback on their products!
When they first set out they didn’t know how to make a phone case. They just knew that they couldn’t find a leather case they liked for their own phones, they had searched far and wide but with no luck. All the cases out there fell into one of two categories, they were either ludicrously expensive or they were manufactured from cheap, poor quality synthetic leather. They wanted to change that and so Casemade was born.
They had no experience at bringing a product to market but knew exactly what kind of cases they wanted to create. From the humble setting of their own living room they designed their first product. It was their signature wallet case and it was compatible with the iPhone 5, the leading smartphone at the time. Such was the overwhelmingly positive response to their brand from early customers that they soon set to work designing new products. Over time their range has grown. All cases in the range follow two core principles – simplicity of design and the use of high quality materials.
As you watch here these cases can be used no matter if you are a busy business man, working out or using it simply for shopping on the go!
It's approximately 3 weeks until wedding time! WHERE DID THE TIME GO?
It was just yesterday that my little brother in law proposed to his beautiful woman and now here we are 3 weeks to go! So much to do and so little time!
I was super blown away by the fact that I was asked to be her MOH. It has been my dream to be a MOH ( some people say I was born for this roll) To be honest, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING about weddings. So naturally, I have been in my element through this whole planning!
Also I need to mention that she is my soul sister.
I love this woman more than my own dog ( and anyone who knows me knows I love BEAR)
This lady has stuck by me through some tough times ( we call it ALLYS ANGRY PHASE)
She has been my little light when things have gone real bad and also has been right there beside me to celebrate my accomplishments, She has been the definition of a true sister.
In less than a month I will get to witness the two most special people in my life tie the knot.
The last of the siblings to get married and a new beginning to our while family as we expand our little families.
These two have found a love that most people dream about. Not everyone finds a love like this.
So, as we count down the days until these two get married, I thought I will share with you a special trip we took to Victoria to capture their lifestyle engagement session <3
"Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
