Review: Case-Mate Tough Case for Samsung Galaxy S3

As soon as I got hold of my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone last year, I immediately bought a casing and screen protector for it. I’m a bit paranoid when it comes to protecting the touchscreen and I don’t trust myself. ๐Ÿ˜€ That casing though didn’t protect my phone from damage so I’ve been on a lookout for a new one. I purchased a new screen protector and my bro gave me a new case, but they weren’t enough for me. Thankfully, I found out about Case-Mate Tough Case for Samsung Galaxy S3. My search is finally over. ๐Ÿ™‚ I really mean it.

I’ve heard about Case-Mate even before I wrote about them opening a store here in the Philippines. I was searching for a durable casing for my phone and I don’t mind paying a premium for it (I paid Php 1,500 for my screen protector and I can no longer count how many times it saved my phone). I heard rave reviews about this one, so when I was given a chance to review this, I grabbed it. When I finally got my Case-Mate Tough Case, I was excited to see how it’ll suit my needs.

As soon as I took it out the packaging, I knew I’ve found the one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s a 2-piece case – one is made of silicone and the other one is a polycarbonate hard shell.

Review: Glamourbox Special Edition Avon Box for July 2013

From all the reviews and posts I’ve read, I know for a fact that many subscribers of beauty boxes like Glamourbox have always looked forward to makeup products included in the monthly boxes. Though many of the items that I got that I absolutely loved weren’t makeup items, I always anticipated seeing at least one makeup product in the boxes I get. So when they announced about the Glamourbox Special Edition Avon box containing Php 2,000+ worth of products, I was one of the many ecstatic ladies who opted in to receive it last month, July.

Glamourbox Special Edition Avon Box

To be honest, I wasn’t a fan of Avon. I know the brand very well since my mom is an avid consumer of their products since time immemorial. I’m aware of how much they’ve helped many Filipina women to earn a living and be beautiful, but I guess I haven’t found any Avon product that really gave me the result I wanted.

Well, that’s until I received this Glamourbox Special Edition Avon Box. I got so excited to receive the box that I jumped off my bed when my shop assistant told me I have a package waiting, and I ran off to get it from him. I recorded the Instagram video below and I completely forgot my music was blasting like crazy in the background. Good thing it was one of my favorite songs and a popular, cool Robyn hit at that. Otherwise, I’d be utterly humiliated (oh, you should see my playlist ๐Ÿ˜€ ).
