It's become part of my Saturday ritual now, walking along Manchester's Market Street negotiating a circled crowd of people looking on as a teenager either beatboxes, sings, plays guitar, juggles a football or does all at the same time whilst I'm trying to get to where I want to go. Lately though, I've noticed a bit of an influx all over the city centre of pop-up stalls selling all manner of phone cases ranging from cheap and tacky £1 cases through to expensive and tacky £20 cases. It just proves that trends are truly cyclical, I remember in my teens the big buzz was all about Nokia 3210 fascias!

Anyway, it certainly seems the market is more than just a bit saturated, as they all seem to sell the same huge range of cases in a wide variety of designs and colours and even online it doesn't really get much better. That being said I've dabbled with this latest trend, first off I bought an turquoise-cyan ombre number for my 4S, then I even designed my own, before finding a 'My Little Pony' style Unicorn.

Now that I've upgraded to the 5S, I've found the perfect case in the form of a replica Chanel No5 perfume bottle! It's a nice piano-black silicone number, though not of the softer variety you may be thinking of, that grips on to the phone snugly and unlike those pesky 4S covers, it's easy to remove without having to either break the case or your nails!

The case also comes with a chain, making it not only resemble a perfume bottle, but also a mini handbag. Cute!

I purchased this from my favorite Instagram Boutique: Dusty Diamonds for a snip at £20!

I've grown increasingly wary of shopping on instagram of late, as it seems there's a bit of a bandwagon full of people trying 'get rich quick' gathering a head of steam, but most of them sell pretty much the same items - yawn. Not Dusty Diamonds though, they seem to keep their range quite fresh and don't cause any unnecessary hassle. Oh and they're from Manchester. WIN!

Dusty Diamonds can be found on Instagram and now you can even check out their brand spanking new website LINK

  19. So cute I love that it doubles as a necklace


  20. Each woman needs to feel alluring when she goes out at night and there are few preferred approaches to do this over by wearing a flawlessly outlined accessory studded with shining Jewelry Custom Designer. It is nice to see this perfume necklace and i appreciate your effort.
