  1. I want that jet ski for my summer. Another good cell phone case is the Otter Box. Many of my friends have them and they have a full warranty for your phone I believe. They are pretty hard on their phones and they have lasted a good long while.

  2. Excellent post with great finds. I want ’em all! I have been seeing those leggings everywhere ~ must get my hands on some asap!

  3. The Water-to-Go bottle is such a great piece of kit, I take mine with me every time I go on holiday now, and it saves me buying bottled water all the time. Also there is no waiting around to drink the water like you do with chlorine tablets :) AND no horrible after-taste!
