ZBox Review #1

I received a ZBox subscription from my brother for Christmas and it is great! The first box I received was this one, which is the Star Wars box – completely full of Star Wars related goodies!

So I opened up my box and this is what I saw so far..

I had a R2-D2 Desktop Vacuum which will come in handy with my desk as I’m forever munching away whilst trying to be productive!IMG_6508
I then received some Gadget Decals that we sell in work, I thought that these were all going to be huge and mainly for a MacBook (that I don’t stick anything to) but luckily there were about 3/4 sheets of all different size decals! So now my hard drives are all funky Star Wars chic (whatever that means..), at least I can tell the difference between mine and my mothers now as we ended up with the same hard drive and colour!IMG_6519
I then saw an original film cell from The Empire Strikes Back which is so, so cool! I absolutely love this!

Moving on, there was a bunch of stuff at the bottom including my film cell – I had ‘The Force – The Zbox Magazine’ which has all previews of new stuff, all the latest Star Wars gadgets coming out and had previews of the new comics coming out!
I also received a Force Awakens poster, which is so cool!

You can’t have a Star Wars related box around the new hype, without BB-8 now can you..
I love BB-8, ‘he’ is such a lad with sass! So I was chuffed when I saw this, this can go with my other BB-8 t-shirt that I have – it’s time that I start thinking of a BB-8 tattoo next!IMG_6512
So that’s it for my very brief details on the ZBox that I received! I do have another box, also but I will write about that one in a separate post to save confusion!

You can order ZBox from Zavvi from this link – BOOSH.
It is £19.49 per month, when you have a 3 month subscription so it’s well worth it. So go and have a little look at that if you’re interested as they are having some cool new boxes coming out like Deadpool, sometimes they have Animation, Back to The Future..

May The Force Be With You,

Xbox 360: Disneyland Adventures (Kinect)

Can I point out how much of an underrated game this is? This is one of my all time favourite games for the Xbox 360 and I always highly recommend it to families that love Disney.
If you’re a huge Disney parks and film freak like me, then this is the ultimate video game for you. No joke.
You use to Kinect (which is a camera for your Xbox 360 that detects your body, so you can control the game by using your hands, arms, jumping, dancing, ducking down..)
You get to walk/run around Disneyland, hug the characters, collect autographs from all of them, ride the rides (most of them have a level built into these, so you have to jump over obstacles, duck under things, move left and right to avoid stuff) and you can do whatever you like! Not to mention, that there’s also Hidden Mickeys in this game. Snap the camera out and away you go!

I really have no idea how this game wasn’t more popular? I have had this game for 3/4 years now and I still absolutely love it. There’s so much to the game and I have only completed about 50% of the achievements and I have been on here for hours!

My only problem that yes, it’s a Kinect game but I get so addicted to playing this game that my arms are in agony from all of the hours that I am playing it! You need to lift your arm and move it left and right to walk, and I am aching the next day but really feel the need and addiction to carry on collecting autographs and hidden mickeys! That is a sacrifice I am willing to take!

Have you played this? I’m so sad that this isn’t going to be reverse compatible with the new Kinect for the Xbox One but this is a game that makes me want to keep my Xbox 360 in the works!

A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond Review

Title: A Bear Called Paddington

Author: Michael Bond

Purchase: Available in the UK

Overall Rating: 5/5

Great For: Children, Families, Rekindling Childhood Memories

Themes: Adventures, Family, Values

Review: I absolutely adored this book when I was younger and have always been a Paddington Bear fan. I thought that I would pick up this book again on Amazon for £3.49 Kindle Edition and give it a good, nostalgic read!

If you do not know who Paddington Bear is, he is a bar from Peru that travelled to London, United Kingdom. He was found at Paddington Station and that was where he got his name from. In this book, you will follow him on his adventures of finding a family, discovering new experiences and many more..

It didn’t disappoint. I still had the same warm feeling that I had when I was younger reading this. The familiarity is great and it has made me realise how well the recent film was made too – they stuck to some of the exact stories and it just worked so well!
This book is great for all ages, especially kids as it isn’t one whole story in itself. It is a compilation of short stories featuring Paddington and the Brown family.

I feel like I cannot say any additional information on this, it really is a ‘you have to read it’ kind of book and most of you have probably read this throughout your childhood.

Did you use to read this when you were younger?
Would you give them another read now?
How did you feel about the film?

Blogging Targets 2016

I have been thinking of what I need to really give my blog that extra little boost. For me personally, I am not in it for the amount of views or anything but I just have a passion for writing about whatever I want to – whether it’s about Beauty, Video Games, having an Anxiety moment or anything random at all.

Although, I feel like my blog could do much more if I put my head down and understood the complete ins and outs of blogging. I have always just thought that it is ‘Write a post. Post it. Promote it on twitter, if you want. There are your views.’
But I am forever getting emails saying that I don’t get a lot of traffic and that there’s other ways to improve this. I just feel like I might as well look into this, it doesn’t make any difference to me personally as I’m still writing my posts but I might as well let more people see them?

So that’s what I am going to do, I am going to try look into traffic and all of that blogging background jargon!

Do any of you have any advice on this at all?
Let me know!
