Just Techy--iPhone 8 Plus & Friends

Recently, I went from an iPhone 6s to an iPhone 8 Plus & I really like it. Mind you, the phone itself is bigger than my hand, but the size was one of the biggest reasons as to why I really wanted to make the switch--I loved/still love my rose gold 6s, but am happy to welcome my bigger phone.

Perfect PopSocket for my germ-a-phobia--I hate people touching my phone! 

A bit bored with the rose gold, I opted for the silver as the new glass backing makes the silver look almost white--it's really pretty & the wireless charging {which at first I didn't care about} is probably one of my favorite new aspects of the phone!

I am not sure why, but Apple doesn't make a wireless iPhone charger--I did buy a silver Samsung one & it doubles as a little placeholder for my phone too.


Anyways, aside from a new phone, cases & accessories are the next best thing! I had a Popsocket on my 6s {pineapples} & wasn't too sure on how I'd like/even use it--but I can't have a case without a Popsocket now...& now they have so many options it's crazy!

For Christmas, I made my mom one with a picture of Riley on it {you can customize the colors on their website}. I really use mine for an extra grip when I am out in public on my phone, but it also doubles as a stand to prop your phone up too.

A few PopSockets featured, I bought--others were gifted from PopSocket like this unicorn color one above. 
As for cases, I am still using {& loving} my deer case from Case App {that post here} but for Christmas, I received a white and clear leather case by Otterbox & I do have my eye on the name glitter cases from Casetify.  However, there are times when I do really miss my Lumee case {I included new additions below} I still use it on my 6s though!

What about you--are you picky about your cases & tech accessories? Sharing my recent favorites right here.
