It’s our favorite day of the year! A day created especially for our favorite people in the world...It’s National Girlfriends Day! This year, we’ve chosen to celebrate with our favorite dynamic duo: Erica and Ryan, the co-founders of the inspirational blog She Only Lives Once!
Erica and Ryan have committed their lives to empowering young women and creating uplifting, positive content to battle against the negative messages that are scattered throughout social media. Here at pursecase, we make our cases for determined women on-the-go like our friends at SOLO, hoping to make positive changes in our world in the little ways that we can.
We hope that with the help of their pursecases, Erica and Ryan can go hands-free to do the things that they love, like continuing to explore Los Angeles, stay active, and encourage young women to be their best selves! Happy National Girlfriends Day everyone, and check out Erica and Ryan’s work at @SheOnlyLivesOnce on Instagram!
At pursecase HQ, we are so lucky to be based out of the beautiful Santa Monica for a million reasons. Among them are the famous beaches, restaurants, nightlife, and our personal favorite: the Twilight Concert series at the Santa Monica Pier each summer!
A Los Angeles gem and annual tradition, the Twilight Concerts at the Pier have been up and running July through September for the last 32 years and counting. With an Instagram worthy sunset on the beach behind the stage, each week is a different style of music, so there’s something for everyone!
Pursecase is the perfect accessory for community events like these, where all you need is good friends, a little bit of cash for parking and drinks, and your phone to document the whole experience on Snapchat! Tonight, catch us setting up camp with our favorite takeout on the pier as we check out Psychedelic Furs and Day Wave. See you there!
The latest smartphone trend that has everyone buzzing is the new augmented reality game Pokemon GO. For those of you who haven’t caught Pokemon fever yet, the game uses your phone’s GPS to determine where you are and makes Pokemon ‘appear’ around you on your screen so you can catch ‘em! The game is the first of its kind as it encouraged you to travel around in the real world in order to catch Pokemon in the game. Pokemon GO has caught on like wildfire and people are hunting Pokemon wherever they go. One girl even found a dead body whilst searching for Pokemon…
One great aspect of Pokemon GO is that it encourages the players to go outside and be active. Gaming is usually blamed for keeping people indoors and idle but Pokemon GO is doing the exact opposite. By placing Pokemon literally everywhere the game allows players to catch’em whether they are at home, work, out for dinner etc. and giving people the little boost they need to walk down just a few more streets. As well as encouraging people out of their homes the game is encourage people into shops such as Sephora, Forever 21 and seemingly ever mall in America. Mixing nerdy, nostalgic gaming with fashion is definitely something we support!
If you fancy spicing up your summer wardrobe with some Pokemon inspired fashion accessories- look no further!! Don’t forget to catch ‘em all!

Hey pursecase fans!
Summer is almost here! Although we always look back on the years of summer vacation from when we were younger as a time to relax, as an adult, summer can still feel pretty hectic. Here at pursecase HQ, things can get busy during the summer and we’ve officially settled into an office coffee addiction. Although we’re often split between Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks Coffee, in an effort to think more locally and support the Santa Monica (and greater Los Angeles) community, we’re looking for suggestions! Our new favorite neighborhood coffee shop is Groundwork Coffee over on 16th and Montana. There’s something too perfect about how calm we feel staring into our cups filled with perfect cappuccinos….until the caffeine hits us an hour later! Let us know your favorite coffee in the comments below, and we’ll go visit a few! We’re looking to settle our office coffee debates once and for all!
Girls we need to let you know of some big news that
we are SO excited for.
Ah its that time of year again. The leaves are falling the, the air is just a little bit nippier and pursecases are flying off the shelves. With thanksgiving approaching, that means Black Friday is almost here as well. As an office we have decided we HATE the traditional Black Friday. Each of us had horror story after horror story to tell about the craziness that ensues on Black Friday. Since we have all decided against the 3am wake up call to shop next friday we’ve decided to fight against it! Instead of going out and shopping we encourage you to stay in and relax. Although as a little incentive, we are doing a 24 hour Black Friday Flash Sale starting 11/27/15 at 12am until 11/28/15 at 12am PST. What will be on sale you might ask? Well thats for us to know and you to find out! But just a hint, its some of your favorites! So sit back and relax and wait for the 27th to swing around because the sale will be worth it and perfectly timed for the upcoming holiday season as well.
Additionally as an added bonus of christmas cheer we have decided to put on an Instagram contest to really spread some joy. To enter the contest instagram a selfie with your pursecase and hashtag #thankfulforpursecase. On Black friday we will be announcing the winner who will get a purse case of their choosing!
Stay tuned our friends and check out our website on the 27th ;)
