iPhone 7 Case, Weggo Hard Transparent Liquid Glitter Flowding Floating Bling Sparkle Love Case Cover for Apple iPhone 7 4.7 inch (BluePink)

iPhone 7 Case, Weggo Hard Transparent Liquid Glitter Flowding Floating Bling Sparkle Love Case Cover for Apple iPhone 7 4.7 inch (BluePink)

Compatible with Apple iPhone 7, not for 7 Plus.
Made of hard plastic which is safe and protective, light weight which fits your phone perfectly
Liquid can move freely,just like the stars floating in the water, add much fun to you
Humanized design makes our case more useful, you can access all buttons with the case, and the size is comfortable for you to catch.
Package included:1 x Phone Case(not include the phone)

Who doesn't love a glittery phone case? The colour of the 'confetti' is only what can be described as unicorn coloured. There is hearts of baby pink, blue and purple along with glitter in the case, which is really eye catching and moves as you do.

When the case is on the phone it is a little chunky, this can be expected though due to the layering of the case. This phone case goes onto the phone easily and I haven't had any issues removing it. You can also charge your phone while the case is on, which makes it a lot easier.

The only slight negative I have with this case is that it doesn't give hardly any if at all protection to the front and sides of the phone. I like a case that is slightly raised around the edges, so if you drop your phone you won't crack the screen as it takes a bit of the impact. This case will not offer any protection to the edges or the front and that is an issue for me. I think if the case came with a protected screen on the front I would feel more confident with the case on my phone. This is the reason I haven't awarded the case 5*.

I would like to thank the company for sending this in exchange for an honest review. I was provided with a sample product at a complimentary or discounted rate in exchange for a fair, unbiased, and honest review.

The Witnesses by James Patterson

The WitnessesThe Witnesses by James Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The family next door has a very dark secret.

The Sanderson family has been forced into hiding after one of them stumbled upon a criminal plot. Or so they think. No one will answer their questions. And the terrifying truth may come too late...

I love James Patterson books, I think they are faced paced and they always grab me from the first page. This little book was no different.

James Patterson has released many short stories this year under the 'bookshot' series to encourage reluctant readers, this is the first I have read in this series. I love the idea of them as I can fit in a story into my busy day. As this was free on kindle I decided to start with this one.

This story focuses on the Sanderson family, who are on witness protection and have been moved from Tunisia to a small town in America. Ronald ex police lives next door and had to retire due to ill health but never really gave up on the job. He is constantly on the look out for any suspicious behaviour. When the Sanderson family move next door, which as far as he can work out is a body guard he knows something is not right. Perhaps they are terrorists? He will keep an eye on them.

I don't want to say too much about the plot as the book is so short, but I did enjoy the book. The only negative I have is that the ending felt a little rushed compared to the rest of the book. I would recommend this to others and I will be reading the others in the bookshot series.

iPhone 7 Case, iPhone 7 Cover, ESR® iPhone 7 Ultra Thin Clear Soft TPU Case Cover with Cute Cartoon for iPhone 7 (Flower Kitten)

iPhone 7 Case, iPhone 7 Cover, ESR® iPhone 7 Ultra Thin Clear Soft TPU Case Cover with Cute Cartoon for iPhone 7 (Flower Kitten)

From Amazon:
  • Flexible TPU Material: Processed by anti-deformation enhancement, it is not easy to cause deformation after repeated assembly and disassembly.
  • Ultra Slim: The middle of the back cover is only 0.8mm to maintain the integrated slim exterior and light touch.
  • Double-Sided Printing: The double-sided printing presents you splendid clear pattern.
  • Screen & Camera Protection: 1.2mm higher than screen and 0.3mm higher than camera to offer the protection of your iPhone.
  • Open Cut-Out: Access to all the controls and features; Perfect cutouts for speakers, camera and other ports.

This case came in a really professional box with information and a certificate. When opening the box, I took out a silicone type case, which you can see from my photos.

I really like the picture on the back of the case, it is really crisp, colourful and I love how the apple forms part of the picture on the back. I also really like the fact that the phone case is clear as it allows you to see the apple phone case.

Being silicone the cover is very bendy and flexible as you can see in one of my photos. The only negative I have about this cover is the fact the side protection is a little limited. Thankfully I haven't dropped my phone, but if I were to, I am not sure it would offer the level of protection I require. The sides seem very flimsy. All cut outs are in the right places and you can fit your charging cable in perfectly. There is also the correct cut out for your camera and this doesn't distract the photos.

If you are looking for a bendy, flexible case I would recommend you choose one of these, they come in a range of designs, all making the apple a feature.

I was sent this item in exchange for my honest review. This does not affect my personal opinion. I am sharing my own experience upon trying out the product.

Dewey's 24 hour readathon

Image result for dewey 24 hour readathon

Wow I can't believe that the readathon has come back around! I think this is now my 6th and I want it to be my most successful yet!

Over the last few ones I have identified my strengths and weaknesses, one of which is having the t.v on in the background. (Won't be making that mistake this time!)

So this is the opening meme and I will try and add all challenges/updates through this post, so make sure you come back to check those out! While I am on the subject of updates, look out for something exciting during hour 18!!! EEEEEK I can't wait for that one!

So anyway hour 1- Challenge:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

I am here in the U.K hello!!!!

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

Lyrebird by Cecelia Ahern 

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

My Alio dip with pitta! (Is that even spelt right?!?)

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

So as I said before this is my 6th readathon and I am hoping it is going to be my most successful, hopefully I have learnt from errors from the previous and I can get a lot more reading time in. I am a primary school teacher so during term time it is tricky to fit in reading and I read sugnificantly less than I want to. Today is also the first day of half term so I am super excited to get my reading bug back!

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

Ok, as I mentioned before I normally have the T.V on in the background, this is something I won't be doing this time. I have also picked out my snacks early enough to make sure I am not faffing when I get peckish.

End of Event Survey

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
I would say hour 10 - mainly because I had been reading solidly for 10 hours and my eyes were feeling it! 

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I have read a Christmas book to get me in the mood and I think that was a good choose. 

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?


What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

The fact I had the TV off in the background! No distractions! 

How many books did you read?

I am hoping to have finished my 3rd book by the end. 

What were the names of the books you read?

Mistletoe on 34th Street, the treasure map of boys and fly on the wall. 

Which book did you enjoy most?

Mistletoe on 34th street. 

Which did you enjoy least?

Fly on the wall. 

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

Yep I'll be there, I will be a reader and I would love to host another mini challenge. That was fun!

iPhone 6 Case,iPhone 6s Case,G.D.SMITH Ultra Slim Thin Cooling Paster Metal Aluminum Heat Dissipation Cover Hard PC Anti Scratch Back Protector Case for iPhone 6/iPhone 6s (Grey)

iPhone 6 Case,iPhone 6s Case,G.D.SMITH Ultra Slim Thin Cooling Paster Metal Aluminum Heat Dissipation Cover Hard PC Anti Scratch Back Protector Case for iPhone 6/iPhone 6s (Grey)

From Amazon:
  • Cooling Paster: Exclusive design with heat patch, embedded thermal conductivity aluminum, rapid cooling for your iphone
  • Dust & Scratch Resistant: Protect your iPhone from dust and scratches from daily use, keep your iphone looks brand new
  • Slim Fit & POCKET THIN: One of the best minimalistic hard metal case, which provide you the comfortable hand feeling and convenient to put it on your pokect
  • Easy Access ports: Perfect cutouts allow us easy to ports, buttons and speakers, more convenient and humanize
  • Not Full Cover Design: Easily snaps into place. The metal outlines gives it a classy look as well as the "G.D. Smith" logo

I am very impressed with this phone case, it's sleek and light weight. The case is cut out in the appropriate area for volume control, camera, on/off button etc.

I like the design of it, it looks very professional, one negative I do have on the cover is the marking G D SMITH, I really don't like having this branding on the cover. If it was necessary to brand it perhaps this could have been on the inside of the case or just one initial. This is one reason I have downgraded the cover to 4*. This is just personal taste however.

The cover comes in 3 different colours, I choose the grey one and am really pleased with the finish of the cover.

This is very slim line and seems like there is nothing on the case, when showing it to my brother he had to look twice to spot the cover. This is really great if you want the sides protected without the look of a case on the phone. The case does not protect the front of the phone in any way as the sides barely cover it. If the phone was to be dropped on it's front there would be very little protection. I feel that it could have come with a glass front protection this would made me more confident with using it. I will be purchasing a glass cover for piece of mind as the iphone was a lot of money and the last thing I want to do it crack the screen. This is the other reason I have docked a star.

If this could be improved to add a screen protector and perhaps remove the logo it would get 5 stars as I really do love the idea of the product.

This is a good cover for a good price and if you already have a protector I would recommend you buy this as the overall look and quality is good.

I hope my review has been helpful to you.
