24 Hours in Munich for the StradaLounge with OtterBox



OtterBox gave
me the opportunity to attend their incredible #StradaLounge pop up at the
Galerie Art:ig in Munich, I was so excited. I had never been to Germany before
and at especially not at Christmas time, so as you can imagine I had been
dreaming of those Christmas Markets.

me tell you, the trip did not disappoint. Experiencing Munichs premier winter
wonderland( with the most beautiful tree I have ever seen)  under
the shadow of an exquisite gothic church in the heart of the
incredible Marienplatz, proved to be a Saturday night I will never forget. However,
a few things did catch me off guard on my trip and I thought I would share
what I learned in Munich below.

am NOT immune to the cold (and there are places colder then Glasgow)

think that growing up in Glasgow, where it’s cold and wet 24/7, 365 days a
year, that I would be immune to even the worst of weather conditions. Wrong.
Even with 5 layers of clothing on, including: mohair, leather, a ridiculously
oversized Hobbs fur coat, leather gloves and a hat, I still felt as though my
face and ears were beginning to freeze over. I know what you’re thinking,
not ideal for street style right? Bingo, you got it.

Everything should revolve around the weather

sure if you follow me or read my blog often then by now you are accustomed
to the fact that I always talk about weather (If you are not, then see above).
However, even with the harsh conditions in Munich, I was so inspired by
the city and its relaxed (and very Christmassy) vibes, that they
didn’t seem to matter anymore. Instead, I stepped out of my comfort zone,
embraced my surroundings and enjoyed creating different content for a change.

cases are your new best friend

always thought that it was only my dad who had one for convince and safety, but
since receiving my  Strada Case at the event, I know why they are so
great. For the girl who works on her phone but throws it in her bag and drops
it constantly, this is the best (and most stylish) insurance policy for your
phone. Trust me on this one. FYI, it’s also pretty handy with the card slot.
Perfect for the girl who constantly looses her cards deep in the depths of the
overflowing Balenciaga…

is key – it’s all in the details!


attending the event OtterBox sent me one of their beautiful
black Strada Cases with my initials embossed on it
in Gold. It’s funny how much I fell for this case because of the
personalisation, and everyone on my instagram seemed to love it also. I suppose
those little touches make everyday items seem more meaningful. OtterBox also
gave us amazing stickers for our cases at the event, unicorns, candy canes and
you can see mine below.


Thank you to OtterBox for having me at the #StradaLounge event. I had the best time personalising my cases, meeting other bloggers and learning so much from the talks and interviews that were held.
