Giveaway: 4 Reasons to Say Bye to the 4

Christmas is just around the corner and if you are asking for a new phone, you need good reason to get rid of what you already have. If you are lucky enough to get an iPhone 5 – let me tell you all about the cases that you simply must get to make 2014 totally epic. There is a difference :]

1. myCharge Freedom 2000 – $79.99 –

The Freedom 2000 keeps your iPhone 5 charged and protected. Twice as much battery life means twice as much emailing, texting, posting pictures, and playing games. This revolutionary, one-piece protective case easily pops on and off and features an exclusive built-in charging cable.  This case makes the most sense for someone like me who is always on social media!  Pick your favorite color, there are 5 glossy bright colors and 2 neutral in black or silver.  An additional 9 hours? Yes please!

2. Make your own case on GetUncommon – $35

I recently went to and event hosted by Covergirl and they created these adorable iPhone5 cases. You can create ones with your favorite photo, your pet, brands you like or of your own company or blog.  They are protective and also show a lot of personality. They are easy enough to be replaced seasonally to match your mood or outfit!

3. iSkin Slims – $29.99 –

Extremely thin and lightweight, slims for iPhone 5 redefines ultra-thin protection with complete 360 degree rear and front protection and an integrated screen shield. They are so fashionable for even the pickiest guy you know. So modern, so chic  with a minimalist feel. It comes in wood, camo and chevron.  This is a sure bet with the amazing price, the beautiful patterns and the thinness.

4. Hard Candy HarvestCraft Slider Cases $39.95 –

The HarvestCraft Slider hard case offers soft-touch texture and the protection of a rigid polycarbonate body. The best part about this case is that it has 3 different bottoms so you can switch up your look often. It comes in 9 different main shades with 3 changeable bottoms each. Another cool design feature is that the ‘flash ring’ around your camera is black to avoid glare.

Music Lovers Must Have: Ask Santa for @FlipsAudio Headphones

FLIPS Audio is taking music from SOLO 2 Social.  They come in 3 colors + 1 limited edition and can be found on and Wal-Mart.  What makes them different?  They become “speakers” when flipped!  What a cool concept.

As you know, a good pair of headphones make a world of difference. They can take your music experience to new heights when you get into all the dynamic sounds the beat and layers of vocals.  Needless to say I was excited to give Flip Audios a go.  When first opening the box I discovered a protective case for travel or storage with a zipper on the side. They were  nice enough to make me feel like I would enjoy the rest of this experience.

Not that we’re partial or anything, but everything about “flips” is different. Revolutionary, in fact. We like saying that because it’s true and, well, you only get to say that once…and only if your product really is revolutionary – breakthrough. That said, let’s take a look at the design. Flips are cool, comfortable, eye-catching, with clean lines and a solid build…no “cheap plastic” feel like some headphones have. But here’s the revolutionary part, flips give you a stellar listening experience in 2 modes: solo and social. (via audio

The headphones are studio sized cans that can collapse on either side of each arm (allowing you to store them easier.)  The material of the headphones that rests on your ears is of noticeably good quality and seems to be very durable.  The headphones fit very comfortably on and have a good sound as well.  The volume adjusts high enough to drown out all sound around you.

The best part now….when you flip both headphones outward while you have them around your neck, the volume automatically turns up and they turn into travel speakers.  The travel speaker battery can be charged by connecting the headphones with a USB on your computer.  The portable speaker is louder than I imagined and filled up my living room enough sound to comfortably listen to.  These headphones will be a nice companion while traveling, I can see them coming in handy on a plane, in a hotel room or while out at the beach…with the headphones on sometimes and the portable speaker mode on sometimes. Solo 2 Social!

If you are looking for new headphones and  need portable travel speakers – you can both with FLIPS.  It will definitely make packing for trips easier and a bit lighter.
