MAPI iPhone and iPad Cases review

And lastly today, to keep your party organized and answer all those RSVP's, you will need your phone. Or, maybe you'd like to give the fun gift of an iPhone case to your gadget-loving wedding party. When MAPI recently contacted me about receiving one of the cases for a review, I was definitely intrigued. I had been using a silicone case that I ordered from one of those flash sale sites and it had become super stretched out from every day use. I have been using the Smyrna iPhone 5 leather cover/bumper case in croco red from MAPI for the past 2 months and really love it. There's not a bit of leather that's worn off either and my phone goes everywhere with me as I never know when I want to capture a photo or video of my 2 girls. Whether it's a Mapi case for the iPhone, iPad or BlackBerry case, it's definitely a stylish and functional wedding party gift. Plus, some even come in white for the bride along with other colors in glossy and crocodile leather {depending on the case style that's chosen}. Each case is hand made in Turkey from the highest quality, 100% cowhide leather and some of the cases even serve as wristlets, stands and wallets.

PS: while I was gifted a MAPI iPhone case, the reviews and thoughts expressed above are completely my own
