Review: Ultrathin Clear iPhone5 case from The Snugg

The nice people at The Snugg ( or depending on where you are) asked me to review an iPhone 5 case for them. Pretty ideal as The Girl had just got a new iPhone 5. They do a good range of products from a premium leather pouch to a more basic clear plastic one as well as iPad and Kindle cases, covers for all manner of tablets and a rather natty Ipod clip case.

The cover they sent me was the Ultrathin Clear iPhone 5 case. It seemed fairly robust and clicked into place on the phone easily. The fit was good and nothing was obscured as is often the case. Unfortunately, The Girl dropped it on the kitchen floor and while it did a great job of protecting the phone, which does apparently break very easily, the case itself cracked so maybe not quite as robust as I thought. The Snugg does offer a lifetime guarantee on it's products which you can get by registering your purchase on their website so had this not been a review product, I could have returned it for a no quibbles replacement.

A good basic case but probably worth spending a bit more to get one that is more durable. If you are into all that techy stuff, you can follow their blog here

Not quite The Oscars but...

I've been nominated for an award, well, more than nominated, short-listed out of hundreds of nominees for a Women Inspiring Women Award. The awards are for the most inspirational and aspiring women in Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire and apparently I'm one of them. Ha! Shows how well they know me!

My nomination is in the Women to Watch/Rising Star category and although I'm definitely not planning my acceptance speech as I'm up against some formidable opposition, it would be nice to at least make a decent showing in the votes. And that's where you, dear reader, come in.

If you have the time and the inclination, I'd be dead chuffed if you'd vote for me. This year, so far has been pretty crap and so this has been a really lovely surprise and  it would be nice to think that I was at least in with a chance...don't make me beg!

So, here's the link. Registration is free, you won't get spammed and if you are one of my local readers, check out the sponsors. I've come across some great groups through it.

Thank you!

Look what happened when my toast popped
out of the toaster. It's a sign, right?
