My new iPhone case/charm!

About two weeks ago on February 24th, I placed an order on an Etsy store named CocoonByWL for both an iPhone 4 case, and a cute phone charm. It was the first time I had ever gotten a phone charm or a phone case, so I was really excited to personalize my new iPhone 4 exactly the way I wanted to. And just yesterday I received my package in the mail! I probably should have taken a picture of the package to show you guys too, but I was too excited to look inside to bother taking pictures at that point.

Here's what all I got:

I got my case, my phone charm, and I even got another small purple gem as another phone charm. The seller was nice enough to send a little thank you note with that gift attached. Which was a relief because unfortunately, even though that kitten is one of the cutest phone charms I've ever seen, it doesn't fit on my iPhone because of the case I got. The case is apparently too large!

Here's a closer look at the adorable charm:
It fits great on my iPhone without a case, and there's a small gap, so I know it would be able to fit on a thin case, just not one as thick as mine. So I gave it to my mom for her new iPhone, as she seems to love it just as much as I did. It's seriously the cutest charm ever! 

The gift charm they sent me is great too, and fits my phone and my tastes really well. I'll probably end up buying a different phone charm from this same store again, because they have some seriously cute phone charms like this or this. But for now, I'm extremely happy with this pretty charm on my phone.

But what I'm most pleased about is the beautiful case. It took me so long to find a case that I wanted more than any other, and when I found this case, I instantly fell in love. The elegant floral design is just too perfect for me. 

The case actually covers the volume buttons and the power buttons, which I don't really like, but they're still super easy to press, so it doesn't really bother me. It borders the front of my iPhone beautifully and the back is gorgeous to look at. In fact, I keep turning my phone over just to look! I'm extremely happy with this purchase. It was super cheap too! I paid less than $15 for both the case and charm combined, plus a gift charm on top of that! 

Decided to take a quick picture with the phone right after I woke up. Ignore the messy hair!

Overall, if I were to rate it, I would give this purchase:

Shipping time: 5/5 The seller is located in a completely different country. They told me when they shipped it that it would take 2-3 weeks, and it took two. 

Communication: 5/5 The seller was super sweet and answered all of my questions very promptly. 

Product: 5/5 Even though the charm didn't fit my phone with the case on, I can't very well blame the seller for that. The gift I received is cute enough and both products are exactly as they were advertised. 

Price: 5/5 Super affordable and I got both things for 30% off! A lot cheaper than many phone cases and charms! 

So, overall, I definitely give this purchase a 5/5. CocoonByWL is an excellent Etsy shop to buy from, and I strongly encourage all of you to go check out their cases and charms! 

Until Next Time,
Bye Lovelies! ♥

    1. iPhones really do get the cutest cases! Which was why when I had the chance to upgrade my phone I picked an iPhone instead of the others! :)
      I don't think I know anyone that uses a phone charm either, now that I think about it. But I just couldn't pass up getting it when I saw it. It's the cutest thing ever! :)

  11. Eep those charms are so cute! I might have to "settle" for one of those adorable cats since I don't think I'll be able to snag the Mister Donut Hello Kitty one!
