A good phone case is a must nowadays, but changing my case on a daily basis to match my outfit is not really my thing. Mainly because I prefer a classic piece in a natural color that will go with anything and lasts forever, but also because cases for a Samsung Galaxy Note can be quite expensive.
In Korea I discovered smartphone cases that double up as a wallet; I was hooked. For example when my boyfriend Chris and I go to see a movie I like to just bring my essentials: phone, ID, debit/credit card and something like my Starbucks stamp card or cinema card. It’s nice when you only need to watch one item. If a smartphone case doesn’t have this ‘wallet’ feature it’s a no go for me. It makes me feel so free when all I have in the pocket of my coat is my phone!
Just when my old phone case started to break down Hoesjes.nl, an online Dutch smartphone case retailer, asked me to try out one of their cases. I had a really bad experience with the previous webshop I ordered from, so I must admit that I was a bit hesitant to order a case for my Galaxy Note II online again. Luckily I had nothing to worry about: my case is made of real leather, is super sturdy and the plastic casing shows no crack even after dropping my phone, and neither does my phone. To make a long story short: I’m extremely happy with my new leather wallet phone case.
