Last month, my Handsome Husband surprised the heck out of me with a new iPhone 5 for my birthday! It was an especially sweet surprise because we had vowed not to get each other presents as we went on a big vacation just weeks before both of our birthdays!
After the man surprised me, I spent a few days stalking Etsy in hopes of finding the cutest new phone case, but my tendency to overthink had me carrying around a naked phone for a few weeks.
And then, the blogging/social media angels stepped in and I got an email regarding Tandem Stills and Motion Phone Cases, asking if I would like to try one out and possibly host a giveaway for one lucky reader to win a new case also!
After checking out their online shop, I was overwhelmed again, but for good reason! They had so many gorgeous phone cases to choose from!
I mean, seriously?! I die over the puppy underwater - Cute Apartment needs to get an iPhone so I can get her that case!
In the end, I decided on one that was very me:
I like to think of this case as representing looking ahead and I love that message. It was fun to pick something a bit out of the ordinary for me - normally my phone would be covered in hot pink, chevron, glitter or rhinestones (or all four at once), so it's been nice to go for a completely different look!
The colors in the case are gorgeous, and it has held up quite well for the few weeks since I covered up my naked phone with it. I've managed to drop it a few times, and there are no scuffs or scratches on the case, and my phone has been very resilient! The image does not seem to be printed in a way that it is peeling or will begin to peel in time on this case - a problem I have had with other similar cases from other brands.

This is by no means a "tough" case, and if you are very rough with your phone or have small children who you let use it, this is probably not the right case for you. But for those of you who are relatively gentle with your iPhone, this will work just perfectly to protect the back of your phone and give you something gorg to look at, too!
Tandem Stills Motion, Inc was kind enough to offer one lucky Stress Case reader a phone case of their choosing as well! Enter via Rafflecopter below!
