nomad traveller iphone case: perfect for the girl on the go

I love my iPhone 4. I used to be a loyal Blackberry user but once I made the switch, I knew I’d never go back. I love all the amazing apps, especially the photography apps. My favourites are PictureShow and Instagram. Both allow you to add filters to your pictures, taking them from good to great! I especially love using them on my travel photos to give them a bit of a boost.

Speaking of travel, my iPhone is my constant companion when I’m on the go – it ensures I can stay in touch with friends and family, provides endless amounts of entertainment and then there’s those great photography apps. So protecting it from all the potential perils of travel is essential. I’ve tried a few different cases and have settled on a new favourite.

The Nomad Traveller Case from Cygnett is perfect for a travel junkie like me. Not only does it protect my phone but I just love the design. It reminds me of a departure board at an airport. (I’ve been to six of the 11 destinations listed – so it also reminds me of places yet to visit!) And at just $18.99, you can’t beat the price. I also love how slim it is. It snaps easily into place and doesn’t add too much bulk to the iPhone’s sleek design.

Prior to discovering this case, I was using the Kate Spade New York Agenda case.

I love the whimsical design but the case adds a lot of bulk and weight to the iPhone. It’s also twice the price of the Nomad case, at $39.95.

Now that I’ve tried the Nomad case, it wins hands down for its original design and slim fit. It’s the perfect case for the girl (or guy!) on the go!

What iPhone case do you use?

fabrix-casesIf you know me, you know I love my gadgets. I’m not sure when it started. There was once a time in the ’90s when I had a cell phone (the size of a brick) that just lived in my purse and never saw the light of day, its plaintive ring falling upon deaf ears. But gradually, I began to embrace technology and today, I’m a full-fledged gadget girl. I panic if I leave home without my Blackberry Bold and my iPod Touch. And my MacBook … well, that’s just become a new appendage, a totally essential extension of my body. But almost as much as I love my gadgets, I love the accessories that I can dress ’em up with. When I first got my iPod, it was difficult to find a nice case that fit, offered protection from the perils of my purse and looked fab all at the same time. Nowadays, there are plenty of options on the market. Take, for instance, these cases (pictured above) from Originating in Singapore, these pretty protectors can ship to anywhere in the world ($3 shipping to Canada!) and the cases are only about $20! There are tons of designs in an array of lovely colours. I love the gingham pattern pictured here and the damask pattern; visit the site to check out all the wonderful designs. offers stylish cases for iPods, iPhones, laptops, cameras, Nintendo DS and even external hard drives. Oh, how I love the Internet for opening up our options! Now I needn’t worry about my tech toys when I travel, knowing that they’re well-protected (stylishly, too!) and safe.
