My Phone Shattered

About a week and a half ago, I was at the park, photographing my pastor's kids.  They didn't want their picture taken though so they were being really difficult.  Running away.  Hiding their face from the camera.  Making silly faces.  It was definitely a learning experience.

While we were playing my phone fell out of my pocket and it must have hit part of the playground before the ground because when I picked it up, the screen was shattered. It still worked and I considered replacing the screen, but then the next day, it fell in a puddle.  It was suicidal and trying to tell me I needed a new phone, pronto.

I decided to get an iPhone 5s in Space Gray because...

1. It's beautiful.
2.  It replaces both my iPod Touch (which doesn't hold a charge) and my phone.
3.  Instagram and other apps.
4. I've always wanted an iPhone.
5.  Customization.

Speaking of customization, I really love iPhone cases.  I'm intrigued by the variety of cases that are out there.  Some are purely for iPhone safety and those are kind of lame, but then there are pretty cases that I think reflect personality and awesomeness.

I was looking at cases on Etsy after I bought my phone and was bombarded with so much beautifulness that I couldn't decide which one to get. My favorite is the Hakuna Matata one.  While looking at cases, I realized that I'm attracted to chevron/triangle shapes and quotes if they are done nicely.

Unfortunately, I ended up not getting any etsy cases at all because I was super paranoid about breaking another phone and the Tmobile guy convinced me to get a Tech21 case.  While I really wanted an awesome case, I'm glad I got the one I did because the color is amazing and it feels really nice.


I hope you are all having a great week!

I want all the crazy phone cases too, but I know myself and got a Lifeproof case. I did bejewel my last one and it looked awesome. Enjoy the new phone!

That poor phone has seen its share of misfortune. Though you mentioned that it was still working after the first accident. Did you consider replacing the phone at that point, or were you thinking of just repairing it? As for phone cases, getting a sturdy one should do the trick. It can mean the difference between a broken screen or a working one for your next phone. Take care!
