This Case Is like a Super Protective Thong (Yup) for Your iPhone
If you’re anything like us, your heart skips a beat every time you see a phone drop. And when it’s your own phone hitting the ground? We know once it slips out of your hands and gravity takes over, all that’s left to do is desperately hope you won’t have to dig into your back account to replace it. We’re not above a celebratory dance when we discover that our phones have survived a clumsy drop, but short of resorting to clunky cases, we haven’t found a way to prevent this panic… until now.
We were intrigued by Buff, the phone case that promises to protect your phone without hiding it. Less is more when it comes to Buff. The case is made from a comfortable polycarbonate and provides a two-millimeter barrier on all sides of your phone. The case’s design is just as strong as it is minimal. Don’t believe us? Just watch this video.
If you’re daring enough to bare your phone, then you should support Buff’s Kickstarter campaign. At only $15, Buff is even more affordable than other minimalist smartphone cases, like the Lucidream exo-Skeleton. There are seven days left in the Kickstarter campaign, so if you pledge now and the campaign is fully funded, you’ll have a sexier phone case in your hands this spring.
Would you purchase a Buff case? How do you protect your phone? Let us know in the comments below!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
