Cell Phone Case Addiction: Save Me Now!

I don’t ever want to limit myself on the number of obsessions I decide to share on my blog posts because they will vary.   So today in this new blog post I have another obsession and a product review all at the same time.  

Ever since I owned a cell phone, I always had a heavy addiction to phone cases.  Over the years, I had about 12 cases for each phone! I know that sounds really crazy, but that was the honest truth! They were different ones from Disney to blinged out ones to water proof cases.  But now that I have a new I phone, I only have three cases for this one.  I just recently changed my phone case and put on the new army print Military Grade phone case which I love because it makes my phone bigger than it already is.  I love the way it looks and feel on my phone and the fact it has a strap is even better!

Trust me, this is my last phone case! I can’t continue wasting money on new phone cases when I know good and well I can’t wear all of them. LOL. I have three so I can rotate whenever I feel like it.   Now that I have a better I Phone, I just love using the picture effects and portrait mode for my pictures.  They look very professional.  So no more phone cases for me. The one I just recently purchased on Amazon I truly love!

Bead Hauling at Michael’s

I started making bracelets several years ago and I definitely don’t regret it at all! It’s a great therapeutic way to regain your focus and stress.  Michael’s has everything when it comes to jewelry making! I like to go when they have coupons and sales.  The current sale that is going on is 3 for $9.99 for ALL beads! Now if you are a bead addict like me, then you know this is a great sale! LOL! I had a very hard time deciding what three colors I should get to make more bracelets, but the sale ends on November 2nd, so I definitely will be going back to buy other colors and styles especially with my coupon I have to save money!

I saw an angel pattern I really love so I decided to get a strand of that and other purple beads to blend in when I make about two or three bracelets.  Awesome huh? I make Breast Cancer bracelets as well in honor of my grandmother who passed away from breast cancer back in 2012.

I have made earrings as well, but bracelets I enjoy making more.  The breast cancer bracelet is called “The Catherine Britton Breast Cancer Bracelet”  One day I want to sell 1k and donate half to the local breast cancer foundation.  I really want to partner with a local chapter or an event where I can sell my customized bracelet.  I will have a video in the next few posts of me making a bracelet that will be uploaded to my You Tube page as well.  Stay tuned!

Monthly Obsessions Part Two

On my last post of monthly obsessions, I showed you guys some cool purchases I made at Kohl’s.  Now I want to share with you guys in this post a purchase I made at one of my favorite stores called Rainbows.  The prices are awesome and the quality of the clothing is decent.  You just really have to know how to shop for good bargains.  And to be honest, not all the quality of clothing is great.  The brands I normally shop for is On Fire which I have to wear a medium because some of the tops run a little small.  I get at least a year of wearing out of the tops I buy for there which is decent because I try to keep all of my tops and sweaters over a year.  It gives me a great reason to not shop as much.  

$10.99

I’m a huge fan of graphic tees and hoodies and when I see them at Rainbows, I try to get them when I see them, but to be honest, my closet is packed enough so I can’t really buy anymore right now. LOL But it was between this hoodie and another one that was gray and pink that had Faith written on the front and back.  But of course i ended up buying both of them.  The Rainbows at Williamsburg Premium Outlets only been there for a month and it was much bigger than the one I normally go.  I just like the colors and the dripping lips which makes this hoodie stands out.  I will probably wear it with my rip jeans and either vans or converse.

I did ended up purchasing the other hoodie as well because the other Rainbow might not have carried it and I don’t plan to go back to the mall anytime soon.  Now I am completely set on my fall gear and I don’t need need any any more clothes for the remainder of the year! (at least I hope I don’t buy anymore.  They have cute graphic sweat shirts as well)
