Life Proof Review and Giveway


*DISCLAIMER - this is a review/Bahamas Trip/Giveaway post blog smash up haha*

Back in March you might have heard a shriek, maybe you thought it was the wind whistling or it was your imagination.
But I am here to tell you that it was me.
Me screaming at myself as I did this...


Yep. 
That sucked.
But when you are a Mom and pick a designer Marc Jacobs "cover" over something that actually protects from clumsy little hands, thats what you get.
So when the opportunity came to review a Life Proof Case, I jumped and I jumped HIGH.


I had been asking around before "the drop heard around the world" on a case that I could use in water.
I am a Florida girl with Florida girl tendencies, beach, pool, water parks, you know LOTS of water.
And everyone said GET A LIFE PROOF.
First thing I did when I got my case was the suggested submerge test to make sure there was no leaks.


The very next day we were hopping on the plane to head to the Bahamas for our girls trip...
{all the images to follow were taken with my Life Proof Case on my phone}


As you can see we get right down to business...


After arriving we headed right for my parents boat {Fa-La-Me}
And then we started hitting up some of our favorite spots.

{love my girls}

After I took this photo a wave came up on me fast and my first thought was I need to save my drink, cause I knew my phone was A.OK, haha.





       

Unfortunately we unable to go fishing due to wind, just meant more time to shop, drive our golf carts, and hit some bars.



One of our spots to hit when we are down there is Man-O-War to Albury's Sail Shop, and to say our boat ride over was wet is UNDERSTATEMENT.  But as you can see in this picture my phone is just chillin, no reason to worry about the spray... 





 {I spy a Tiffany}



My new bag...


It turned into a cool rainy day but we for sure made the most of it, just how we do.
And my phone was there out in the open capturing everything...


These are images Tiffany was nice enough to let me borrow that she took underwater with her Life Proof Case on...


Yep this happened
 a lot...



As you can see having this case on does not effect your images...




And Buggie wanted in on the review, here she is during bath time doing her best Scuba Steve...


I do not have any videos to share but if you check out Tiffany's review she shared two great videos she took on her phone and You Tube is full of them.
Ok here it is, I love Life Proof.
Since I got it I have not taken it off.
I think it is practical, secure, great to use in and around the water, and most important kid proof.
I HIGHLY recommend it as an everyday case,
even with my one minor complaint, I cannot use my charges with the button releases on the sides.
So new car charger it is, but I would MUCH rather get a new car charger then have to get a new phone, again.

*ADDENDUM - I have since learned that Life Proof offers a dock extender for my charger issue. Prefect solution!!**

And here it is on the Bahamas, there has never been a full four days of my life that I have laughed so hard, had so much fun with my girls, and just enjoyed every single solitaire second 
{even when we almost got into a bar brawl, ha}.
But honestly there was so much fun, inside jokes, and moments of complete hysterical laughter that I can not even begin to share it all.
Maybe one day...

Two weeks ago I thought I must have left my phone in the car since no one had called me in a while. When I went out to check I found it laying beside the car in the rain!!

Room 118 said...

Yay! So happy for the discount, as I haven't ordered it YET...it's killing him! Lol I will say that having a protective cover from the time I got my phone until now (I had that OTHER brand) has truly saved my phone more than a dozen times!!! But excited to get the waterproof one now for poolside this summer! Thanks Amy and Lifeproof!

Shelly Triolo said...

I NEED this! My phone was out of commission for a WEEK last month after my son threw his sippy cup in my diaper bag...upside down, so nice of him. Luckily, I just needed a new SIM card.

Shelly Triolo said...

Liked and told them you sent me on FB!

Kalbyc said...

I think i really need this so I don't have to worry about my little monster taking my phone to the bathroom with him anymore!!!! oh....and i don't have to worry about him swinging my phone around because of the stupid "lightsaber" app!!!!

I've always been careful and lucky with my electronics but since becoming a live in nanny to two rambunctious little boys I have learned the hard way that I need to upgrade to more child proof protection !Thankfully they make fabulous things to do so now, not so great is how much it's all been costing me lol I would love to win the pink one :) P.s. looks like you had a lot of fun!

I asked you in ig if it actually worked and I was amazed to see you even took a picture under water! Being a mom and having a 3 year old running around and always having her hands on my iPhone it would help a lot!!!! My daughter loves to play games and sometimes drops it! And I know life proof case will help me! :)

Hayley said...

Since I have twins and we LOVE to swim and go to the beach, this would be an AWESOME win for me! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I desperately need this case!!! My Otterbox is falling apart...

Jamie said...

A Lifeproof case would improve my iPhone life because my poor right hand gal has had far too many near death experiences. With 3 littles 5 and under who love tech as much as their geek mom, this case would significantly cut down on the amount of times my iPhone life has flashed before my eyes. :)

Jamie said...

I liked Lifeproof on FB and let them know that you sent me. Ooh, I hope I win!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

it could improve my iphone world by protecting my phone from breaking when i inevitably drop it for the 100th time. sounds good to me!

Jenni said...

Ok, I am so picking about cases, but think I am in need of this for the summer and hanging by the pool! That way I don't have to be as careful!

Thanks for such an honest review...just might have to make this purchase!

Natalie said...

I need this case, because I have a 14 month old who loves to steal, chew on, spill things on, and constantly throw my phone! I wish I had known about Life Proof sooner!

I also liked life proof and let them know you sent me, and followed them on twitter!

Considering I've already sacrificed one blackberry and one iPhone to the Summer Gods, I think this case would be an amazing new religious experience!

I would love to be able to take pictures with my iPhone when I'm around water.

Shea Posey said...

I need this case because I am in the same predicament you were!! Same time and everything. In March, I dropped my phone and the front shattered. Now, I'm just waiting to have a little extra money to get a new phone and if I had this case, I wouldn't have to worry about it shattering again!!!

Becca said...

LifeProof would be an awesome case for me to have since I'm about to take on a new adventure, becoming a first time mom. This case would allow me to worry less about my other prized possession, my iphone ;)

Amanda said...

A 3 year old obsessed with my iPhone and a new pool waiting to cool us down from the Arizona heat is a recipe for disaster. I'd love to have a LifeProof case to make sure our summer is a FUN one!

Niki said...

Lifeproof would help protect my iphone from my son accidently dropping it when an app makes him upset!!!

Sara Stoff said...

want want want want. It would improve my life because I would FINALLY be as cool as my friend Amy. And we could take pictures of our kiddos underwater together. ;)

With two little boys, a Life Proof would remove a little stress from my busy (but fun) life. Jen.

I drop my phone all the time, I swim daily, we go on vacations to the beach. A strong waterproof case would be amazing!

Skyler said...

That was a great review! I have a two year old that loves to play with my phone. He knows how to do everything on it. I still have the huge fear of him throwing it across the room though. I think this would give me some peace of mind and also allow me to have more fun this summer! I love that you can take your phone under water!
Thanks for doing the review and giving us a chance to win!!

Jenni said...

Great review and jealous of your trip! I think Life Proof would definitely help protect my phone from my rambunctious 2.5 year old and oh so drooly 6 month old!!

April said...

As a Florida resident who lives near the beach and practically lives at the pool with my kids the Life Proof case would be a life saver just for the simple fact I could actually take pictures of my children without worrying about getting it wet. My boys and our new baby would be able to look back at all of our memories and I wll forever be grateful.

Taking pictures in the pool? yes please! I would love to be able to do that. I have also broken my iphone screen 5 times. I need an intervention!
