Iconemesis is a fast growing lifestyle brand, which is becoming a cult favourite among bloggers - showcasing the best up and coming British design talent on your iPhone.  They have a range of different designs including Fifi Lapin, Gemma Correll and Pomme Chan. In the future they are looking to expand the range by stocking luxury handbags and other accessories.
Since having my iPhone 5, my beloved dotty Kate Spade case has done me well, but it is nice to change it up every now and then. I bought an Iconemesis phone case a while back for my iPhone 3GS - Bear Honey by Gemma Correll. I was really impressed with the quality of the case and the variety of unique designs. When Iconemesis contacted me to choose a new case for my iPhone 5, I was excited to choose a totally different design to the one I had been using before. I went for the Coffee Collection by Lily Xcase. I thought this suited my personality and shows my love for coffee. I see a Phone case as an accessory, just like a piece of jewellery or scarf to any outfit, so it was important that the case was cute and easy to find in my over packed handbags.
The quality of the case is great! This case fits my phone really well without making it feel bulky or uncomfortable to hold. It protects my phone from scratches and incase I was to accidentally drop it. I really like the design, and I know I won't get bored of it after I've used it for a while. I would definitely recommend them if your looking for something different to brighten up your phone. They currently stock iPhone 4, 4S and 5/5S cases. The cases are usually £24.99, but there is currently 20% off discount using the code OCT202. Free shipping is also offered if you live in the UK.

I'm a sucker for anything new from Soap & Glory, if I see a new product has been launched I have to go out and buy it, to test it for myself. My last Soap & Glory blog post wasn't too long ago (see here), so you can tell they are a brand that appears a lot in my day-to-day life, whether it be in my make-up bag or around my bathroom.
Soap & Glory Kick Ass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder is right up my street, I currently have an oily/combination skin type, so I'm always looking for products which can keep a shiny forehead at bay for a few more hours. This is a product which I keep in my handbag for what it says embossed into the powder an 'instant retouch'.
You can wear this product as a primer under make-up, or alone for a weightless and natural translucent finish. The powder offers 'Superblur' technology with microline, light scattering silica spheres and Camouflawge 3D to perfect skin using a natural filler effect containing plant-based, muscle relaxant with anti-wrinkle actives. It also feautures seven age-delaying and free radical scavengers and is free from preservatives, mineral oil, paraffnum and tallow. It's silky soft and weightless to wear.
I love the packaging - a step up from the usual cardboard design and comes with a handy compact mirror. I think I prefer this powder to 'One Heck Of A Blot' (also from Soap & Glory) as it's less powdery and I can use Kick Ass through out the day without getting build up. Priced at £12 and available at Boots
