If you've ever wanted to save space on your smartphone while achieving the ultimate selfie, Beyonce's stylist - Ty Hunter
, has got you covered. Ty Hunter has successfully launched the newest style innovation that offers more than you think, the Ty-Lite
. Produced by his company Passion Projects
, the Ty-Lite is the only protective smartphone case that has three lighting settings, ensuring everyone looks “FLAWLESS” in their best selfies.
“Being that I’m the selfie king, I came up with the idea because we really wanted to have a case with a light setting because the sun doesn’t always shine in the daylight, so light is very important and that’s kind of how the process of the Ty-Lite started,”
- Ty Hunter.
The Ty-Lite is much more than an accessory to upgrade your next selfie. It's the perfect boost of instant light when you're out and about from day-to-night. From lighting the abyss of a huge tote bag to entertaining small kids while on babysitting duty, my Ty-Lite has replaced all my designer iPhone cases just like that. (Beware, it's a bit clunky, but with "tough-as-nails" protection - your entire smartphone will be safe from unexpected nicks, bumps and drops.) Not only does it supply great light for any purpose, but now that my photos are guaranteed to be well-lit, I can delete unnecessary photo editing apps and free up some space on my smartphone!
I'm not the only super fan either, celebs like as Kerry Washington
, NeNe Leakes
and more are already fans of the new phone case and now you can become a fan too! The Ty-Lite
is currently available for the iPhone 6/6s and retails for $79.99
. Don't fret Droid users, according to the website, the Ty-Lite will be available for Samsung Galaxy devices later this year.

If you love unique smartphone cases that protect your coveted devices stylishly, but object to paying upwards to $50 and $100 for mere plastic - I've found the DIY project for you to try out this weekend! While pursuing Ebay.com, I found DIY blogger Aimee Santos of Swellmayde,
and discovered a pretty cool DIY Marble case tutorial that'll cost you just a few dollars and could make a great personalized gift for others too. I plan on trying out variations of this smartphone case DIY project this weekend ...and so should you!
Check out the step by step instructions below:
- marble print contact paper
- craft knife
- metal ruler with cork back
- clear cell phone case
1. Place your cell phone case on top of the backside of the contact paper. Trace around it.
2. Cut out the cell phone shape using your craft knife. Use the metal ruler for the straight edges. Be sure to find a metal ruler with a cork back to be safe (the ruler should not slide around as you are slicing).
3. Peel off the backing of the contact paper. Then, carefully place the sticky side of the cut contact paper onto the cell phone case. Press well to prevent air bubbles.
4. That's it! You now have a creative and stylish smartphone case that doesn't cost you a ton of cash!

Don't you love it when functional accessories also express your personal style? That's why I've become a huge fan of the OtterBox brand of smartphone protection.

Garcia brings her style and fashion industry expertise to this fashion-oriented case. Protection no longer comes at the expense of style with 'Brazilian Pop!' - a runway-ready blend of designer fashion and premium protection.
Inspired by Brazilian street art, 'Brazilian Pop!' was created exclusively for Nina's Quarterly.co box. Quarterly is a box subscription service whereby influencers and celebrities, including Nina curate items and goods to send their followers and fans each quarter. The 'Brazilian Summer #NGQ03' box taps into this theme and 'Brazilian Pop!' reflects the movement, exploding with color and patterns.
The OtterBox Brazilian Pop Symmetry, is a vibrant mixture of tonal colors that is a welcome design into an ever-growing world of smartphone accessories. The mix of prints, colors and graffiti-like optical illusion stands out among what’s considered fashionable smartphone accessories. If you're crazy about the tribal-trend like I am, you'll absolutely love this stylish and protective case.
The OtterBox Brazilian Pop Symmetry case includes an inner rubber case, surrounding the power button, volume buttons and charging ports while a hard shell exterior protects the rear of the phone. The raised beveled edge protects your smartphone screen, making a two-layered combination of intuitive protection. That’s multiple layers of protection in one all-inclusive design!
