I've written a handful of posts related to mental and emotional health, so here's a little list of them for you to check out:

I know you guys haven't heard from me on Strange and Pretty in a while. And for that, I am sorry. I'm dealing with a lot of me stuff right now, and I'm trying to focus on getting myself together.

I'm okay, I just need some time to reflect and better myself. I will be back soon, scout's honor.

My iPhone 8+ Case Collection.


It's no secret that I'm Team Apple. I've been an Apple sheep for over a decade. I currently have the iPhone 8+ in silver with 64GB. I love my freakin phone. It's just so...pretty. But I do like to dress it up every now and again. Here are all the cases I have for my electronic baby.

From looking at these pictures, you can tell a few things: I love unicorns and purple. Like...to death. I am a grown ass adult that like unicorns. I'm not ashamed.

I've purchased most of these cases from Amazon. You can check out one of the unicorn cases here - the larger more obnoxious one doesn't seem to be available anymore.

I'm a big fan of Spigen cases. I buy at least one for every phone I have. The two black ones can be found here and here. If you're looking for a case that you can run out of the house with your keys, cards, and phone, I recommend the wristlet case.


I got this wonderful set of ten clear bumpered cases for a mere $14. I like these cause they're versatile and fun to switch out the colors whenever you feel like it.

You can also see that I'm a big fan of Pop Sockets. I'm terrified of dropping my phone (some cases can be so damn slippery), so these work wonders for me. My fave is the anatomically correct heart one on my clear black bumper case. It looks so cool.

My mom says I don't need anymore phone cases. She's probably right. Since most likely I'm going to snatch up one of the new iPhones come September. With that ten pack, I should be good. But I just love pretty cases.

What phone do you have and what kind of cases do you have for it?

Empties #10.

Empties #10


Prada Candy Perfume
This is one of my favorite scents of all time. I'm pretty sure this is my third or fifth bottle of this stuff. The scent is soft, musky, and elegant. Not too sweet or tweenish, but just right. And it stays on you all day.

Post On It: Here.
Will I Repurchase?: Yes.


DKNY Red
This perfume brings back memories of my early twenties. I've loved it ever since. A beautiful and soft red apple scent, it's one of my favorite DKNY fragrances. I'm pretty sure it's discontinued, which sucks. It seems like all my favorite scents are being taken off the market. Wah.

Post On It: N/A.
Will I Repurchase?: Yes (if I can find it =/).


Soap And Glory Body Mist
So many perfumes in this one.  I love the fact that Soap & Glory came to America. This is a "barely there" mist that just gives you a hint of fresh scent.

Post On It: Here.
Will I Repurchase?: Yes.

Aussie Shampoo
I have a very sensitive scalp, so I can't use just any old shampoo (or conditioner). Aussie is a-okay with my fussy dandruff and leaves my hair moisturized and spelling delicious.

Post On It: Here.
Will I Repurchase?: Already Have.

Soap And Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion
Love how soft and rosy this smells. It's also great for right now, being that it's a million degrees outside it's light weight and doesn't make you feel greasy.

Post On It: Here.
Will I Repurchase?: Already Have.

Smith’s Rosebud Salve Minted Rose Lip Balm
Been using this for years, and I will never stop. It's such an awesome multi-use product. I use it mostly for my lips, but if I get a cut or burn, it's great with the healing process.

Post On It: Here.
Will I Repurchase?: Already Have.

Clean And Clear Morning Burst Facial Wash
I'm not too picky about my facial wash. As long as it doesn't irritate me, it's okay in my book. As far as the "energy boosting" this wash claims, I haven't felt much of that. But then again, I'm gonna hate getting up in the morning no matter what's bursting onto my face (gigiddy).
