Style Files: Calypso Case

Selecting tech devices for your lifestyle is just as important as choosing the right accessories to go along with them. And, in a world chock-full of options, sometimes a minimal but straightforward design is all that you need.     
 
I'm back again with a review of CalypsoCrystal's designs. You may remember the luxury brand from one of the features from my Smart Traveller series.    
Luxury leather tech accessories
This design is the MacBook Case and comes in a colour variety the fashion world would call blush, tangerine, olive, and midnight.  Inspired by regions around the world, CalypsoCrystalchose the following colour names instead:  Zurich Night, Paris Glory, Sydney Morning, and Atlanta Mist (as seen here). This case is the Atlanta Mist, a warm dusty pink colour with a glossy finish. It's actually a preferred colour for me since I wanted something neutral but sophisticated. Fortunately, as an added bonus, this size case fits both my Mac and PC laptops, so I can use this interchangeably with my mobile workstation and personal computer.    
  
Just like all of their other accessories, this style exemplifies refinement within the seams, albeit acquiring it will make your Burberry wallet a little bit lighter. However, as any tech-savvy devotee will note, quality luxe pieceshandcrafted with the utmost attention to detail, usually do. Durable longevity? Check.

The Style:
This version of the CalypsoCase is a massive upgrade with a cleverly useful element: a wide tab on the front that allows your laptop to be lifted without having to dig deep into the case with your handscertainly helpful for those of us who wear statement rings and delicate hand jewellery. The magnetic tab can be easily pulled and slides comfortably back into its designated slit on the front of the case so that you can swiftly upload photos online or check those important e-mails.   
  
The case itself is very different from my usual leather messenger-esque style laptop bag but a great sophisticated alternative, especially for meetings. It's much like a large sleek clutch for on-the-go access to your MacBook. It's café-approved and airport-friendly, which is pretty much a large part of my weeks these days.   
  
First-class benefits:  
All of CalypsoCrystal's pieces are exclusive(only 500 are made in each design) and come with a certificate of authenticity. Each piece is handmade from premium Italian leather by masterful artisans with a specialty in crafting precision leather goods.   
  
I love the brand's attention to the customer, which comes with a personal touch. Each item is gift wrapped with a custom note, and booklet. Now that I am a seasoned customer, it's great to see that the company still holds true to their branding and maintains excellent customer service as well.   

  
What do you think of CalypsoCrystal's opulent designs?  What do you carry your laptop in?

Insta-Living Vol. VII: dashing favourites

Since so much has happened over the course of two months, I wanted to share a few highlights from March and April. These are lifestyle moments, including some succulent cuisine, fun eco-inspiration, and fresh cut blooms because who doesn't love those?  

I have been obsessed with these blush palettes lately by BH Cosmetics (Thanks to Jackie for the suggestion), and then I finally took weekend to do a cleaning of some of mcosmetic brushes.

With the adjustment in seasonal climates I try to update my workout routine, and always make an an attempt at revising and updating the designated playlist as well. But, l have also recently put together creative playlists for other occasions: be it drawing, post-reading, or just relaxing. I have been captivated by these unique covers by The 1975, and Foxes. I've been listening to loads of extra music too since we had friends in town, and I managed to get back to sewing and painting this month. (Bravo, to me!)  
  (Above) Neutral manicure days, Fresh blooms of tulips, A daytime snapshot before Easter, Homemade truffle pizza with a handmade herb crust (family recipe), Giving the brushes a cleaning, Nike Roshe trainers, Fell in love with this House of Harlot bangle via Rocksbox (you can still get a free month with code 'TMBFF'), Fun upcoming new project, Baking a lentil cake, We made handmade sushi in a cooking class by a chef friend, New favourite: mini notebooks, My #ootd: weekend edition.


Amber Run is another band to give a listen to. Amber Run's, "I Found" is hauntingly beautiful, and if you remember this post, and loved London Grammar, then you might like them as well. They're currently on tour in the UK. Check them out if you can, their certainly worthy of attending a live show. 

Shame on me for just stumbling across this next rendition. I literally shushed the mister, then played the video twice within a few moments upon my discovery of this cover. Foxes managed to cover Pharrell's hit song, "Happy" in an otherworldly and artful way. 

If you know her (Louisa Rose Allen's) voice already, then you will understand how magical it is. There's also a clever treat at the end with her version of Massive Attack's, "Teardrop." Sure, "Happy" is far different from the original, which is why I like covers like this--I appreciate it when an artist makes it their own instead of doing an exact copy. 

The 1975 turned Clean Bandit's, "Rather Be" into a relaxing touch of café sips and nudges of gentle jazz, which made me love their version.

How has your April been so far? Are there any concerts you're looking forward to, or any brilliant hauls you've had recently?
