REVIEW: Casetagram & Giveaway

casetagram giveaway iphone 5s case personalised

I don't know about you, but I am obsessed with Instagram . . It is the first thing I check in the morning and when I get home from work. I truly believe pictures say a lot more than just words. It is also a great way to share your snaps with family and friends, and with Apps that enable you to edit, putting a different feel to your pictures, some can come out looking really lovely. Casetagram, which I am sure you have all heard of by now, are a company who produce personalised cases with your favourite Instagram pictures. Cases produced can be for either iPhone, iPad, Nexus, HTC, you name it, Casetagram can produce it. I have seen a fair few reviews buzzing around the community about these cases from Castagram, and having read one just before Christmas I instantly had to order.

Casetagram enable its customers to order via 2 means; you can either produce your case from you phone, or you can place an order via the website. At first, I opted for the iPhone App, as I was on my phone at the time of viewing the review, and I thought it would be straight forward. It's very easy to use, however there were moments where it kept 'freezing' so in the end I ended up using my Laptop. As I have a white iPhone 5s, I opted to producing a case for my phone, selecting the 'Classic Snap, Frosty White'. There is the option to have black (charcoal), but I preferred the clear casing as I thought it matched my phone better. In terms of picture layout, there is a variety to choose from, however I opted for 'Le Corbusier', which has 4 big blocks, and 16 little squares. Personally, I preferred this layout as I wanted to ensure the pictures would not lose their quality, or become distorted upon production.

Delivery can take between 10 - 20 days, longer if ordering during a busy period, i.e. Christmas. But to be honest, after receiving my case, the wait has been well worth it. Shipping is free worldwide too, although there is an option to use FedEx (at a fee) which guarantees delivery between 3 - 5 days. The case is well packaged, in its little box, with the Casetagram naming on the front and the case itself wrapped in black tissue paper for protection and presentation. Definitely a great gift idea for someone nearest and dearest to you.

As you can see the case is of high quality, and the pictures have come out extremely clear. I was worrying that the smaller block of pictures wouldn't come out very clear, but they have in fact shown up really well on the case. Selecting pictures I did find difficult as I have sooo many favourite moments/pictures which mean a lot to me. After much deliberation I whittled down my pictures to my close family, favourite moments in Jamaica, my Gran (RIP), and my close friends. Producing this case has made me realise that although my parents are 4000+ miles away, they are still with me everyday . .albeit on a mobile phone case! Even my mum wants a case now!

I absolutely love my case, so much so, I am going to order another for my iPad in the near future. The cost of the iPhone case is $39.95 (approx. £24), which to be honest is pretty reasonable, considering the labour, shipping costs. I ordered my case Christmas Eve, and I only just received it. However I appreciate that there was a backlog of orders due to christmas. But I honestly did not mind waiting, although I would encourage early ordering if you want to have it in time for a special occasion. 

Overall, from the ordering process to actually receiving the case, has been absolutely brilliant. Casetagram can be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. 

 I very rarely do giveaways on my blog, but when I do there's a reasoning behind it. Although things for me were a little quiet on the blogging front in 2013, I came across so many of you on twitter, who simply have been lovely to get to know and natter with. Many of you making me giggle from tweets, or conversations I have had with you. So I want to say thank you, and here's to another fab year. As a way of saying thank you . .Casetagram and I have teamed up together, and will be giving one lucky subscriber the chance to create their very own phone case.

    So hard to say what my favourite moment of 2013 was. We had a really special family holiday in Norfolk last year. It's just nice to enjoy the time with the kids while they are still little.

    Fab giveaway.. Love casetagram.

    My most memorable moment of last year has to be when I was there at the very end when I had to put my little dog to sleep. She had two tumours and it just broke my heart so I know it's not technically a happy time but to know she knew I was there gives me masses of comfort.
