Digital Divas On-The-Go

We now live in an era where almost every person owns a mobile phone (or two, in some cases). You not only can send messages, take photos, stream videos, check your emails, and browse the Internet, but also store/share data, download apps, and make purchases with your phone.

The rapid rise in the sale of mobile phones is directly proportionate to the popularity of accessories worldwide. New wireless innovations such as ear buds, external battery packs, hands-free car mounts, screen protectors, phone cases, selfie sticks, smartwatches, and keyboard attachments are essential to the majority of us. With them, the experience is enhanced.

Before purchasing accessories, I take into consideration things like functionality, quality, affordability, and user-friendly features.

Being wireless leads a new global trend, making life easier and more convenient. Smartphones often have a short battery life, so handy power bank in my purse allows me to recharge on-the-go. Phone cases not only express individual style, but also provide protection from the unexpected. A hands-free car kit enables me to talk on my phone and look at navigation while keeping my hands on the steering wheel. As the demand for mobile accessories increases, I have featured some of my favourites.

Crainy Ge                                                                                                                          We can’t imagine anyone who would know better how to deliver exemplary service to our guests than our own super-shopper, Crainy. Or have the style to offer it up with a more stunning smile, (as those who’ve had the pleasure of meeting her can attest). It turns out Crainy wasn’t so far off envisioning herself as an Ambassador growing up – we certainly consider her ours! When she’s not leading the charge in offering Oakridge guests customer service that achieves next level, chances are you’ll find Crainy treating herself to a good retail sesh. Aka research!
