~Review:Switcheasy's Ipad Coverbuddy~

Hi Girls!
If you have followed me for a time you may have known that I recently expanded my blogging horizon.I recently reviewed the famous Imelt case for iphone 4S here & today I am presenting another review from the same category.
Its the Coverbuddy case for Ipad 2 from Switcheasy.

I loved the Ipad case at first sight.Its refreshing green color has a cooling effect for the eyes in this hot summers.
~A LITTLE INTRODUCTION TO SWITCHEASY~
SwitchEasy was first conceived in January 2005 to create the best accessories for computer products. We knew then that as time went on, the way people accessed the web and communicated with each other would be changing. The days of bulky desktop PCs were coming to an end. Instead of laptops, more people began using their phones to connect to the internet. With the smash success of the iPhone, a need for attractive iPhone cases began to grow. Not only did the cases protect customers' devices, but they added a sense of uniqueness to each phone.
Of course, we eventually expanded to iPad cases and iPod Touch cases as those products were released and became popular. With an ever expanding mobile device lifestyle, we knew that someone had to provide people with the high quality accessories they need.
Our mission is to provide more reasons for PC users to "Switch" to a better digital lifestyle through our innovative little add-ons. That is why we have chosen the name "SwitchEasy" as our trademark.

~MY EXPERIENCE WITH SWITCHEASY ~
I really loved the customer service at Switcheasy.They are a very efficient team & they shipped me my package the day i placed the order.Soon a tracking number was provided of the Fedexed parcel & before I could track it ,it was at my doorstep :) I loved the packaging that was done with so much care.
Ok so now lets get to the experience I had with the Coverbuddy.
~WHAT SWITCHEASY HAS TO SAY ABOUT COVERBUDDY~
CoverBuddy™
For iPad 2

  • Shock proof case made from ultra tough polycarbonate.
  • The best companion for your Smart Cover for iPad 2
  • Durable Rubber or scratch-resist UV Coating to protect your iPad 2
  • Full covered design to cover all the important parts of your iPad 
  • CoverBuddy™ is the case which protects the most area of the back of your iPad 2. In addition, unlike most plain scratch-able cases on the market, CoverBuddy™ is protected with highly durable color matched rubber coating (color version), or scratch-resistant UV coating (clear version) so your purchase will last longer.
  • We have hand picked a few colors which we are confident that will complement your new Smart Cover. SwitchEasy™ CoverBuddy™ for iPad 2 comes initially in 11 fantastic colors (UltraClear, Black, Red, Navy, Tan, Cream, Grey, Pink, Orange, Green and Blue), which complement any fashion needs.
  • SwitchEasy™ CoverBuddy™ was designed to be as transparent to your Smart Cover from the ground up. Just snap your case in place, and use your Smart Cover as you normally would. You won't even notice there's a difference.
  • ~WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT COVERBUDDY~

As I said I loved it at first sight.Usually I dont like green cases but it was a very refreshing green that I liked instantly.Its very important to mention here that the Coverbuddy is only a back cover & fits in with all the smart covers that are available on Apple store for ipads.
Unluckily I dont have a separate smart cover for the front as I prefer to buy hard one piece covers to give my ipad good protection reason being my ipad is usually with my little 17 month old boy. So when I got this coverbuddy & I realized that its only solid back protection I got worried.But still I gave it a chance & took out the ipad from the hard unbreakable cover and slided it into the cover buddy.

Oh yes putting on the coverbuddy is really easy and it falls just in place covering all the sides and corners.It looks very solid but is surprisingly light.The smooth feel of the cover is awesome.
See how well all the sides and corners are protected.
The cut outs are open enough to visibly see the docks and easily plug in & plug out the jacks.Similar is the case with the ringer switch and volume buttons.There is space enough to easily reach them and adjust the volume.Similarly the on/off switch cut out is also nice and the camera cut out is large enough to cover the round lens.
The docking port is covered by one of the two covers that comes with it & so is the headphone dock covered by one of the two covers.
There is a small microphone slit at the upper side of the coverbuddy visible in the right side pic.
What I like most about coverbuddy is its scratch resistant soft and ultra slim design.
It is aso compatible with the new Ipad that has the new lightening cable connector.
Now let me tell you what I don't like about the coverbuddy.I can't put on this cover unless i know that I have the Ipad all for myself & that i can't have.In the few hours that I put on this cover and was admiring my beautiful new case,my son came from somewhere and ta-daa !
My Ipad was suddenly exposed to danger. There was no cover or protection on the screen. one strong push and it could land on the ground may be screen broken or anything else.
So as a bottom line this coverbuddy is great for those who are have an ipad wholely for themselves,for someone who is using ipad for some office work,for college stuff etc.It is extremely light weight and protected from the sides and back.Yes it is also for those who have smartcover.They can attach it to the front and there you go both sides protected.
Next time I visit the market I will look for one to so I can bring coverbuddy in use.
Unfortunately until then I have taken the coverbuddy off and packed it back & transferred my ipad into its old very hard full case with the band to push over the top so the ipad stays closed too.

This is what it looks like in case you are wondering.
I will recommend you to have a look at Switcheasy incase you are looking for a decent cover for your iphone or ipad.They have a lot of variety.Plus they have cases for Samsung Galaxy series.They also ship to Pakistan luckily.
The coverbuddy is available online for US $ 24.99.

Stay Happy Always.

Best Outfit for the Irritating Summers: Women Tunics

This post is contributed by Shaheen Chisti:

Just a while ago, I didn’t know about the tunics being used by the Roman armies during their battles and even hippies of the 70s joined in this fashion conundrum that got popular later. A great loosely worn outfit perfect for casual hangouts. It is perfect to wear with a pair of leggings or with skinny denim jeans as I prefer for women tunic being so versatile to wear. These tunics look beautiful on you, but you need to know if you’re going to wear them.


Besides, tunics come in a few designs usually with a longer length upto your knees or with a short length aligning your mid-thigh. Inspired by the Greeks & Romans, this particular clothing element has now become an essential part of our fashion apparel. Its length is what fascinating it is; with that you could use several different styles. Its versatility makes a girl’s life easier when it comes to clothing, in my opinion. Slip into a jeans with it or tuck into a pair of trousers for a casual rehab. Like you could turn a tunic sweater into a sweater, top, and dress.

Even dress up with women kurta tunics that tend to make you look more desi on the go. These would tend to give a good cover up to those unwanted curves you want to hide. Though getting these tunics may become challenging at times when you want them the most! So buying off the internet wouldn’t be such a bad idea now. Atleast to me this brand new savory experience of online shopping in Pakistan gives me quite the comfort. For the fact of the supply of exclusive services I get to save my time, much needed energy plus it doesn’t require me searching for a tunic in this scorching summers! It is quite a relief for me.

All you have got to do is log on to your laptop, and find out an online clothing store that has a women tunic. But wait! Do you know which ones you should buy from? And after all the fraudulent issues that we could get informed about by just reading online reviews that you could uncover by Googling. Nevertheless, security plus convenience could rather be experienced at Daraz implied for fashion clothes shopping online

~Review:Switcheasy's Iphone 4S case Imelt~

Hello Girls
Its the start of a beautiful week.
And I am expanding my blogging horizons.As my blog is related to beauty & fashion so today I am reviewing a poduct that adds to how you accessorize and complete your outfit look.
These days mobiles and smartphones have become a part of daily life.Life is incomplete without them.Nowadays people judge others by the phone they keep!
I am a proud owner of Iphone 4S.I love it from the bottom of my heart.I love to buy cases to match my outfits and moods!
Recently I got the oppurtunity to review an Iphone case from Switcheasy.

~A LITTLE INTRODUCTION TO SWITCHEASY~
SwitchEasy was first conceived in January 2005 to create the best accessories for computer products. We knew then that as time went on, the way people accessed the web and communicated with each other would be changing. The days of bulky desktop PCs were coming to an end. Instead of laptops, more people began using their phones to connect to the internet.

Of course, we eventually expanded to iPad cases and iPod Touch cases as those products were released and became popular. With an ever expanding mobile device lifestyle, we knew that someone had to provide people with the high quality accessories they need. 
Our mission is to provide more reasons for PC users to "Switch" to a better digital lifestyle through our innovative little add-ons. That is why we have chosen the name "SwitchEasy" as our trademark. We love what we produce and we hope you'll love our products as well! Stay tuned for more surprises from us in the near future! For inquiries, contact us by here , feel free to write us anytime!


~MY EXPERIENCE WITH SWITCHEASY ~
If you are a lover of iphone cases you will be spoilt for choice while surfing their website like me.I requested to review Imelt series for the Iphone 4S.The customer service is really effecient.Their shipping was also great.They shipped in a day after I chose the case and gave me a tracking number as soon as one was available.Within a week I was holidng my package as it was Fedex-ed :) I am really happy with all the experience I had with Switcheasy.
Ok now we proceed to the Imelt case that I am reviewing today.
~WHAT SWITCHEASY HAS TO SAY ABOUT IMELT~
SwitchEasy™ launches Melt™ for iPhone 4/ iPhone 4S, the most fascinating textural design protection solution for iPhone 4/ iPhone 4S.
Our product features the following:

  • Duo UV scratch resistant gloss coating
  • Unique detachable slider design for easy installation
  • Fascinating special design and texture for the ultimate grip
  • Durable polycarbonate casing and inner felt placement for ultimate all round protection


Our Melt™ product includes:
  • One Melt™ Unit
  • Two anti-static Screen Guards
  • One Microfiber Wipe
  • One Squeegee Screen Guard applicator
  • Two Universal Dock Adapters (Pearl White and Piano Black)
  • One Video Dock Stand
  • Two Power Jack Connector Protectors
  • Two 3.5mm Headphone Jack Protectors


SwitchEasy™Melt™ for iPhone 4/ iPhone 4S comes initially in 5 fantastic colors (Sesame, Vanilla, Caramel, Lime and Berry) which complement any fashion needs.
~WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IMELT~
Okay to start with the look.Its completely cute.I loved it at first sight.Specially it gave me the look of an icecream & in summers who will not want an icecream hence Imelt!& offcourse its very girly!

I have used this case for 2 weeks now.I have been loving it uptill now.It changed the look of my iphone completely.Its a one of a kind case.I am not exaggerating but I have got some really nice remarks from friends and family:)Its 3D design and glossy finish makes it special.It gives quite good protection to the phone itself.
The flaws that I have found in this case are not much.One disdvantage is that it takes a bit of time for a person like me to take off the cover with a little bit push.Another flaw is that the case is NOT Scratch or Chip Resistant.My baby has dropped off my iphone with the Imelt case & it has chipped from a corner already & I am sad at that.
The imelt case is really easy to put on.I have explained it in 3 easy steps with pictures down here:
Have a look:
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
End Result
The cut outs at the sides and bottom for the startup,headphone and power jack are quite big.They dont interfere with plugging or unplugging the headphones or charger.
Similar is the case for the volume up down buttons & Silent button.
There are also 2 power jack protectors & 2 headphone jack protector inside.
For me these protectors are not much helpful as when I take them off I have to take extra care as where I put them so that they stay out of reach of my little one.Otehrwise they are best to use,as they keep the dirt & dust particles out.
I really like the Video Dock stand as I can turn the Iphone into a small LCD anytime I want :)
There are also 2 screen protectors and a soft wipe for some screencare.
Overall I really like this unique Iphone case.
I only wish it was scratch and chip resistant so that it would last longer.
Now I usually put it on while on a day out or when it goes with my dress color.
The Imelt case is available in 8 eye catching colors.
I will recommend you to have a look at Switcheasy & get a case for your iphone.The good news is this that they also have lovely cases for Samsung Galaxy Series.
Another important thing that I will like to mention is that they ship to some countries & luckily Pakistan is one of them.
It is available for US$ 34.99
You can also find Switcheasy on Facebook here.
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay Happy Always.
