With the holidays coming up there is no better time to check out new technology accessories or at least spice up your tech to make studying for finals a little better. Nothing tells me more about a person than their phone case. Silly as it may seem, minuscule accessories have a way of letting an outsider peer into one’s style in the most discrete way. From Otterbox phone cases to Thermos (or Swell) water bottles, companies have transformed some of the most useful products into ones that are sported by top celebrities and, of course, students. Before I stepped foot on Wake’s campus, I found creative and innovative ways to spice up my technology accessories–check it out below!
Collaging is kind of like a puzzle; except you pick the pieces and put them together in any way you want. I ordered a handful of stickers from redbubble.com, and voila! Not only does my computer show an array of my interests (Drake, pizza, lulu lemon), it also makes using my computer to study a tad more bearable.
Tech Accessories: Try Frends
If you’re a person who loves to color coordinate, this one’s for you. “Frends” headphones are the perfect accessory, and probably something I use the most throughout the day. Weather it be having a mini jam session walking from class to class, watching Netflix in my bed, or even on my flight home, I find these headphones to be the most comfortable, stylish, and simply the best quality. Coming in an array of colors, these headphones are ideal for matching the hardware of your laptop and cellphone. The “caps” come in over ten colors and for $199 you can sport these bad boys on campus.
Never Lose Your Phone Charger Again
There is always an unspoken phone charger thief among my friends. Whether it be a mix-up or my own misplacement, my phone charger always ends up missing! We’ve all been there, and a perfect way to prevent it is with a trendy wall plug-in. BUQU power accessories do just the job, with the array of plug-in’s from dice, flowers, and my personal favorite, crowns. For just $14.99, you can guarantee to catch your phone charger thief red-handed.
Like I previously mentioned, phone cases are like a little window into someone’s personal style. Sonix brand phone cases have been flying off the shelves, with their signature style of a transparent background with a repeated pattern. Being someone who constantly drops my phone, I find my Sonix case to be extremely protective. And secretly, I died inside when I saw Kylie Jenner sporting the same one as me! What’s even better is that Sonix also makes matching portable chargers, for those times that you’re pulling a library all nighter and need the guaranteed juice.
