a brand new toy for a brand new year!

Oh my, just look at it! Isn't is beautiful? I know I shouldn't be this exited about a phone, but really, how could you not be. It's amazing. Before this I had the iPhone 16GB 4S in black so this time I thought I'd go for a white one, and I'm so glad I did because it looks so pretty! It's a 16GB iPhone 5S in gold with 4G, Spotify for 2 years and 8GB of data. The tariff I'm on should be costing me £52 a month, but I get a 50% discount through work, so it's a bit of a bargain really. There's insurance on there too, as I'm more than a bit clumsy (it's been in the bath twice already) so I figured I'd better get it covered because I'll inevitably break it.

I was originally going to get it in white and silver as when I seen the gold online I thought it looked like a tacky gold, but when I actually seen one in the shop I was very pleasantly surprised as it's more of a champaign gold, it's quite subtle. Sigh, it's just lovely. I'm giving my 4S to my mum so we can FaceTime and she can actually have a decent phone, she's had the same rubbish Nokia for a few years now so it'll be nice to see her with something a bit better. I think I'll have to show her how to work it though..

Seeing as I am quite clumsy, I obviously needed to get a case for it as there was no chance I was going to risk dropping and smashing the screen. It was kind of annoying that none of my pretty phone cases would fit it, so I took to ebay. 

I bought this lovely floral case from a seller here on ebay and absolutely love it, the case is dainty pink flowers on a pale mint background with a white trim. What impressed me even more than the pretty case was the packaging. It came in a pretty little box all nice and neat and with a little poem printed on a bookmark with the cutest little giraffe on it. I am sucker for pretty packaging and personal details so this won me right over! There are loads of cases on that shop too, in case floral isn't your think, so I bet you'll find something.

I absolutely love my phone and I'm so glad I stuck with iPhone! I realise this reads like a bit of a sponsored post, but I assure you, it's not, I just really like Apple products!

Also, yes to the cliché of a white iPhone with a floral cover...


  1. Aaah that case is gorgeous! I have the iPhone 4S and I'm always tempted by the 5S or even just the 5 but I still have over a year left on my contract so I'm trying to make myself wait for whatever the latest one is then!xx

  2. Cliché but nonetheless, classic. I've always admired the look and functionality of iPhones, they're nifty little things! It's not hard to see why you'd be excited over it, I'd be too. Here's hoping it lasts long and you really get your money's worth out of it. :))

  3. I love the case you chose, so pretty! <3

  5. I have been saving for Iphone 4s but it is really expensive in my country everything is more expensive than anywhere so I have to really really save if I want that baby. ❇♥ Blog written by two friends: http://teenagewastelandbyhd.blogspot.com/ ♥❇

  6. I got myself a new phone recently, too! The old one dropped in the toilet, haha. I was thinking of getting the gold iPhone 5 but I chose the Nexus 5 instead, being more of an Android fan :P I agree that the gold is really subtle and pretty though!
