When OtterBox asked me to be one of their ambassadors I couldn’t think of a collaboration that would suit me better. I mean, think of me and my phone like we are one, and you get the feeling! Yes, I cannot ever use the excuse I didn’t see a message or an email.. I admit I am that kind who always walks with my phone in my hands, risk my life daily when crossing the street too busy replying a WhatsApp message, never miss a day to update my socials. And if you are thinking of dining and wining with me, it gets odd sometimes.. you have to wait to start eating your food until I took at least a dozen of photos (the first one is never perfect) and if we try to have coffee? That’s really my thing, you can forget a fuming hot cappuccino, especially if we sit where they serve some coffee art. Finally, my 6 months old daughter is probably one of the most photographed of the world wide web! My boyfriend calls it ‘a bit’ annoying, I call it creating memories, and of course, work! If there is something you can trust me, besides shopping, is when I talk phone cases.
Since I always love to try all the hot places in town, I have decided of showing you my very favourite spot in Amsterdam!
I am taking you to the Conservatorium hotel. On my top list favourite places in the city. Mix of historical building and new design, high glass topped lobby, 5 stars service with still a very friendly staff, one of the best cappuccinos and lunch spot in town, impeccable service.. Loads of good natural light, wifi, yup! That’s sounds perfect to me! And getting to shoot in this location was a real treat.
When it comes to what I wear, details are always the most important to me. I could wear the same ripped denim for weeks but the accessories must always be on point, and my phone being my thing, it must be ‘dressed’ accordingly.
What I love about the OtterBox Symmetry Series Clear
case, it is the fully clear back
. It shows the rose gold colour of my I-phone and most important, since it did happen to me with other brands in the past, this case doesn’t create a shade around the phone camera. This way I can still take great pictures without compromising in quality
Moreover, protection is at the heart of the brand and I love to know that everything that is inside my phone – emails, thousands of photos, all my apps. – are always safe!
A stylish yet protective phone case. Just the way I like it.
I loved starting my day with a delicious cappuccino, which tasted as good as its pretty look in the picture, while I was checking my emails.. and of course taking photos of it! We did a three hours shooting, which sometimes can be very tiring so a yummy lunch was impossible to resist. We hoovered a way too high quantity of french fries but with such a location, every excuse is good enough to stay a little longer.
The great news is that this is only the first episode! Yep, I want to show you more of this OtterBox case and my favourite spots in this city.. We are now planning the second shooting coming to the blog the first weekend of March. New location to discover, same case, different colour.. and hopefully, equally good cappuccino!!
