I’ve been meaning to do a bit of a techie round up of ways you can personalise your tech items. Phones, iPads and laptops are so much a part of everyday life now and after the iPhone became cool for it’s sleek design, more and more I’m seeing bloggers snapping pictures, iPhone in clear view and they’re no longer naked, sporting snazzy designs as part of the style statement.
My latest discovery however is head and shoulders above the rest. Spotted on Instagram via Alex D who was sporting a very Dream. Find. Do.-esque iPad cover, I then found that the Gelaskins range spans nearly every device you could need a cover for.
As the name suggests, the covers are mainly thin ‘skins’ that serve as protection against scratches and also bring colour and unique personality to your device. The icing on the cake is the cool range of wallpapers that you get access to with your purchase so you can even make the screen marry up with the outside.
I’m also claiming bonus points for the fact this is a product that doesn’t just work for the Apple family. Your Blackberry, Kindle, HTC, Samsung and more can all be personalised too.
Of course, it’s the range of geometric gorgeousness that had me sold and I bought the one pictured above. The hard case is slightly different. If you’re slightly clumsy like me, the hard case offers more protection than the skins for not much more money.
Gelaskins is a Canadian company but ships world wide. Go take a look, the designs available are immense and you can even customise your own with an image you have taken.
Before we move onto something serious this afternoon (and totally at odds with this tongue in cheek collection of lust-worthy and shamelessly material must-haves,) I thought it would be fun to put together a no holds barred, money-no-object list of ‘I wants’ and then I’d like to hear yours.
It’s always lovely to be treated to something you couldn’t normally splurge on, or perhaps treat yourself to something for a special occasion, but as my father-in-law says (and I don’t always necessarily agree with,) ‘the fun’s in the looking’, and boy did I have fun creating this list 😉
Feast your eyes ladies 🙂
The penguin hardback classics are popping up everywhere with their quirky cloth bound covers but it’s the The F Scott Fitzgerald collection I’m lusting after, with the deco foil designs in metallic shades to glam up my book case.
Monica Vinader is a recent obsession of mine, particularly the faceted slices of semi-precious stones she uses for lobe candy – (from Astley Clarke.)
It wouldn’t be a Christmas list without a design classic and for my new office, how about this corian and walnut desk from The Conran Shop. Its stylish lines would surely provoke constant inspiration?
There’s nothing more luxurious than shearling and this jacket is super soft, a stylish shade and insanely warm. Liora Mid-grey shearling jacket, Reiss.
For the (techy) love of my life, this beautiful iPad sleeve by Mulberry. Only the best for my baby 😉
To make life with Florence Finds even easier, a Macbook Pro would be a practical but stylish addition to my stocking please Santa, for swift on-the-move editing and lots of Skype face time conversations with everyone from Gemma, to Laura in Canada and my sister in Birmingham.
