HOW TO: RE-FURBISH YOUR LAPTOP


For University, I very nearly bought a Mac-book pro, the retina display, clean design and all the other technical stuff that makes it, well, 'fast'....it's all very tempting - but it just wasn't within my budget. I couldn't justify spending that much money when I'm already happy with what I already have. So, I decided that my Acer windows laptop needed a re-boot to look more appealing to use. Both internal and design wise! I've had this laptop for a few years now, and felt it was starting to look a little rough around the edges. After doing some research, I stumbled across the perfect style. Me being me, I immediately lusted after the floral skins and matching cases to go with it....


I'm in love with this floral print, it's definitely my style and I feel more inclined to use my laptop now it's been newly decorated. The skin was £6.99 from Amazon, which you can see here, and all you do is cut the template down to size (I used scissors, but ideally you should use a sharp knife for a cleaner cut) and then peeled off the seal and stuck it on. Simple!


The technical bit! It's also really useful to give your laptop or computer a real good clean out. This means removing all unwanted temporary files, cookies and general internet history. Or you could just delete certain documents to free up some space on your hard drive - like, do you really need that old school report about Romeo & Juliet? I think not.


I also normally struggle to find anything that fits my laptop, as it has a rather large 15.6" screen. This is a 15.6", and fits perfectly along with the case. It also had a beautiful leather, textured effect, it doesn't look tacky or cheap and the quality is surprisingly really good.


As previously mentioned, I also decided to buy the matching laptop case with handles and a detachable strap - always handy! Also from Amazon, for just £14.99, you can see it here.


What do you think to this floral set?
Would you use it / are you inspired to re-furbish your own laptop?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love,
Hannah xoxo

  1. That's such a pretty floral print I have a MacBook Air and I really want one of those decals (of Snoopy) to put on mine. They're just too adorable.
