Octer.com Makes Multiple Platform Shopping Easier

Octer.com, fashion, shopping

 

Octer.com first launched in the UK back in December 2014, as a mobile app. It has since expanded into a website, thus, making it easier for consumers to shop from multiple stores from the comfort of their phone, tablet, and computer.

There are multiple categories, ranging from womenswear, menswear, children’s wear, plus-size, to home, electronics, and furniture. You can shop from a large variety of US and UK based retailers, such as: Farfetch, Macy’s, Topshop, TJ Maxx, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Nasty Gal, and Miss Selfridge.

The website has been very user friendly, from my observation. You must create an account in order to save items and shop. As you can see from the screenshot above, you can choose from a variety of categories and sub-categories (in this case, I chose ‘women’).

Then I went to the women’s dresses and skirts.  I saw that there was a plethora of options to choose from. Octer makes it super-easy to choose your outfit for any occasion or silhouette.

I was also able to go into the women’s handbags category, and select which stores I’d like to see handbags from. I chose Nasty Gal and Neiman Marcus. The handbags you see are only from those select stores.

You can also see that Octer.com also carries other products for everyday life, besides fashion. I love the fact that I can buy pretty much whatever I want (including furniture), not only from US shops, but even in the UK! It’s pretty amazing what technology can do these days.

Hands-Free Driving with Zuna Drive

Hands-free driving with Zuna phone cases

* I was given a case to review, however ALL opinions are my own *

I live in Houston- where there are currently no laws regarding hands-free driving. Since moving here in 2013, my anxiety regarding driving on the roadways has increased. People just don’t seem to pay attention while driving. Every time I’ve had a close call, or the car is moving too slow, etc., I’d peek at the driver, and they’d always be either texting or on the phone. I am a HUGE advocate against distracted driving, especially when phones are involved.

According to the National Safety CouncilApril is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The NSC points out that just because you are driving hand’s free, doesn’t mean it’s always the safest. You can also be mentally distracted as well, by using the hands-free options on your vehicle’s dashboard. such as dictating a text or email. BUT, in my opinion, I still consider using a hands-free device as a step in the right direction.

When Santa Barbara-based company Zuna Drive started following me on Twitter, I was beyond thrilled and immediately reached out to them, because they believe in hands-free driving as well. They offer phone cases that have a built-in hook that attaches to your air conditioner vent. It’s a great and stylish phone accessory that is durable (with triple co-molded construction) and isn’t bulky.

After getting the case out of its packaging, I snuggled my phone into the case and went to run errands. Before driving off, I attached the hook to my horizontal air conditioner vent and let the phone vertically hang. The weight of the phone makes the hook stay in place. Once I’m at my destination, I just detach the hook and tuck it back into the case and I go about my merry way. One thing I will say, that do to the phone hanging there by only the hook, it will shift slightly when turning (as it did for me, but it’s not too noticeable). When I first attached it and started driving, I felt great knowing that my hands were on the wheel and I was more focused on the road. I mainly use my phone for navigation, so it’s been a blessing to not have to hold it. The screen is also easier to see because my air vents are close to eye level.
