'Paris Makes Me Happy'




It is safe to say that many, many people received some type of gadget for Christmas - me included! And now the hunt is on for fun, stylish cases to keep our tablets, e-readers, laptops and phones looking good and, most importantly, protected.

While clip-on cases are one of the most obvious choices, I personally find that sometimes they can make the gadget too bulky (and I much prefer something sleek), but of course not having anything at all is like asking for the case to be scratched...

So to meet in the middle, I ordered this skin for my iPad - it is called 'Paris Makes Me Happy' by an artist called Izak from www.istyles.com. The skin itself is made from premium grade cast vinyl with a matte finish (you can choose glossy if you wish) and it feels so thick despite measuring less than 1mm - so no bulk added!

The one aspect I wasn't looking forward to was the application as, if it isn't applied straight and has air bubbles, it would very much annoy me. But luckily, it was so easy! Simply wipe down the surface with a clean cloth (preferably one that is specifically manufactured for cleaning gadgets and screens) and line up the cut out areas along one of the edges - I started with the volume buttons. Then lie the rest of the skin in place, pushing out any air bubbles along the way. The skin is repositionable so I was able to adjust the parts that hadn't gone quite right, and there isn't any annoying, sticky residue left over either.

Once you receive the skin, you are also given a code to download the matching wallpaper, completely covering your gadget in your chosen design from front to back!

There are so many things I love about the design; the fact it is an ideal of a Parisian scene, complete with little French dogs, shops, a street cafe and a very chic woman reading a glossy magazine, and its fashion illustration, sketched look. It is light and colourful without being overwhelming - it certainly makes me want to go back to Paris!

However, it was a difficult choice to make as the artist had so many great designs. Here's a few more...

1. London 2. Tokyo 3. Runway 4. Ah Paris 5. Rome Scene 6. New York Mood 7. Ragazze e Ragazza

And each of these can be made to suit many different devices...

Of course, skins do not protect the screen so I also have an Apple iPad Smart Cover in Powder Blue.




Basic protection whilst still looking fab - now all I need is a nice little clutch to carry it in....
