Give Siri some Bling with @iSkin Claro Glam

The claro Glam brings glitz and glamour with glittered covers that give iPhone® 4 and iPhone® 4S a sparkling, new personality.

She goes where you go, she keeps your secret, she even keeps you organized.  You know your iPhone is your best friend. Being oh-so helpful, friendly and patient all the time… isn’t it time you give your favorite assistant something pretty?  No I am not talking about getting your intern something from Tiffany!  I am talking about iPhone 4 Siri and the new iSkin case! My favorite is the Bondi because it is unexpectedly girly and so distinct and you can find your phone in the deep sea of your purse :]

Isn’t it pretty?




iSkin, a premium brand for fashion and technology lifestyle accessories, today announces its latest design for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. The claro Glam is full of glamour, featuring a glittered look that stands out while showcasing the beauty of your iPhone 4/4S.

Displaying industry-leading craftsmanship, the claro Glam embeds a blush of glitter onto a transparent hard plastic, and finishes with a thin layer of high-gloss polymer that gives it that lipstick-shiny look that is also soft to the touch and grip. It’s the perfect cover for the technoista that can’t help but stand out in the crowd.

With the late-night club scene in mind, claro Glam also includes a flash guard that helps to eliminate “glare” while taking photos in dark environments, and, as with most iSkin products, contains industry-exclusive Microban® anti-microbial technology that helps prevent the growth of bacteria that can cause stains and odors on the product.

The claro Glam was also specifically designed to be compatible with the iSkin Glam Protective Screen Film, a glitter-bordered ultra-clear film that dresses and protects the front of your iPhone 4/4S, providing the complete glam package for the effervescently chic owner.

The claro Glam comes in three flashy colors: Cosmo (glittered pink), Bondi (glittered blue) and Vive (glittered purple), and retails for $34.99 (USD). To make things even more special, customers can now get the Glam Protective Screen Film at 50% off when they purchase it with the claro or claro Glam at The claro Glam will be available soon at select retail partners worldwide.

Too much Fun with @PocketDisc

With the weather warming up and us hoping that spring is just around the corner, you shouldn’t be anywhere without a Pocket Disc. A clever little hand knit disc that is multi-functional and so much fun!

It has the cutest story too!

Our Story

Phd CollageSavanna Groft, a third grader at the time, was assigned a project at school. Her teacher asked her to crochet a round placemat as part of her handwork studies. Savanna’s initial efforts yielded a round disk, but because she had not added enough stitches, the disc curled under forming a small lip. This placemat of sorts sat on a table in her living room until it was inadvertantly thrown. It sailed across the living room and the Pocket Disc was born.

The ShadangdangPhd Productions was formed with the intention of making more flying discs. For months the design and materials were refined, with Savanna’s mom, Mindy, crocheting new designs. Since then production has been taken up in Guatemala.

Guatamalan WeaverThe Mayans of Guatemala have been weaving and crocheting bright patterns for centuries and bring a deep cultural talent for handwork to the Pocket Discs. Each village specializes in a few patterns. The patterns of a village are passed down with the generations. Through a veteran importer, Phd Productions found cooperatives of Guatemalan women to produce Pocket Discs. In return for the amazing artistry that these women add to the Pocket Disc, the women are paid a fair wage and work under good conditions. The money they make crocheting Pocket Discs and other hand-made products enables their children to go to school and helps keeps them out of poverty in a country in which 56% of people now live below the poverty level.

The toy has universal appeal and because of its inherent safety has been incorporated into the PE curriculum at a local elementary school. The physical education teacher who uses the Pocket Discs in his classes said, “I just can’t think of a way that these could hurt someone. I mean look at that keep away game we just played. If we had been using Frisbees®, there would have been 10 kids hurt before we were done.” A student listening nearby added, “When it hits me in the mouth, my lips don’t get caught up in my braces!”
