After the most tiring but exciting 24 hours in my favourite city of Paris attending the #SymmetryStreet event with OtterBox, it got me thinking about how integral my phone is in my life.
This realisation began to form last week when my Macbook was in for repair for around 12 hours and I thought my whole world was collapsing. I had posts set to go live and my edited images hadn’t being backed up due to being in London, the heart palpitations were beyond real. During this time, my phone became more important than ever and it made me realise how important taking care of these objects is. On Monday morning I was standing at the top of the Arc De Triomphe holding my phone in the air to get the perfect shot, ultimately it’s a recipe for disaster, so why don’t I take more care of it?
Working for myself, and running everything form my phone, protection and insurances for that device should be top priority, not a £2 case from Amazon. My style is very sleek and minimal so I look for phone cases to match, and from the moment I received my OtterBox Symmetry Series Clear cover I knew it was perfect for me. However, it wasn’t until I was discussing it with Chris that I realised how durable the phone case actually is for being so lightweight & aesthetic.
I know, you are probably reading this and thinking when will you tell us about the event – all in good time – but I just wanted to mention this, as i’ve learned the hard way recently with not backing up my devices properly and putting them in suitcases/bags without protective cases on. If you live on your phone like I do, then protect it!
If you watched my Instastories over the weekend you will have already seen all the fun at the #SymmetryStreet event, but if not you can see from the images above. Held at the quirkiest place in Paris, Le Pavillon de Canaux, it almost felt like we were in the South Of France and not Paris at all. Filled with the coolest people, enjoying the best (and I mean the best!) coffee, Street Art by Raphael Federici (yes that street art above was made out of phone cases), customising our new OtterBox cases and getting all the inspiration from the Parisian Street style.
Finally, for my brief flirt with Paris I wore a Pinstripe blazer (only £30 & linked above) with my fave new Levi wedgie jeans and a classic white tee. Then obviously my white OtterBox case and black round Raybans to finish off the look, oh and don’t forget the Gucci!
I can’t imagine a more perfect Sunday afternoon, can you? PS- stayed tuned for more Paris pics on here & Instagram!
