Time for the next step in my life!

I’m feeling like a little post on whatever is on my mind, at the moment.
I am so excited for the next chapter of my life. I am hoping to move to London (surrounding areas, as it’s cheaper) and to hopefully get a Junior Web Developer job.

I cannot wait to start looking at apartments/houses and at jobs that I would love to do!
I even went to Currys today, had a look at all of the home products and fell in love with the Dyson V6 Absolute (link here) too! I have all these future visions in my mind right now – it’s exciting!

I personally feel that when I don’t live at home, I feel like a completely different person. I am me.
I am more mature, I will cook for myself, eat healthier and I will enjoy it too. I will also bake a lot more, which I love doing as it will be my kitchen. I will enjoy decorating my place as I adore some interior design and cannot wait to purchase some amazing pieces for my kitchen – such as the Phillipe Starck juicer, that I have had my eye on since I was about 15/16!

I find this so exciting and by being a christmas temp at work, it is giving me that extra kick to get through my Coding course online, work harder and faster to get ready by the time that I am finished with work in January! Too much motivation going on right now!

I know that it can be expensive living in the surrounding areas of London, and I know that the wiser choice is to live with more people to make it cheaper. But I personally believe that I can find something smaller for cheaper, if I really look properly (I have already found a few beautiful places that would be perfect!). Although it would be cheaper, I think that it is personally worth me paying that little bit extra so that I can be happier and less stressed with the people I will live with! Definitely worth the money for me!
I like my own space, peace and quiet when I can get it and clean clean clean spaces!

I cannot wait to have my place, my own decor, a bookshelf, have a Mon/Fri 9-5, go out for a relax and coffee on the weekends, be able to do one of London’s many things in my spare time (museum, galleries, book stores, shopping, sights, meet up with friends..) I simply cannot wait!
Is it just me that’s in this stage at the moment? Anyone else feeling like this? Get excited over the little things like what products to have or decor? I cannot wait, and yes, my butt is so on Pinterest right now having a browse!
I feel like I have so many ideas in my mind right now that I need to write it all down – I might have another good go at Pinterest this evening and get my brainstorms out in one go!
Apologies for the ramble!

If you want a cheeky look at my Pinterest then here’s the link!

Apps that I love | Part One

Here are a few apps that I love to use on my iPad Mini – this part is mainly for productive apps, as I don’t play too many games, but I will add a second part with the ones that I enjoy using.

I don’t usually blog from my ipad, but it’s really handy for whenever I’m travelling or in bed and don’t want to have my MacBook on. I use to have a Blogspot account and I really disliked the app! But now that I have a wordpress account, I find it so much easier to use, is more appealing visually and the app is a lot nicer to use with a lot more features!


I also really enjoy catching up on blogs by using the Bloglovin app. I love the concept of Bloglovin and I enjoy using the original app, but this gives it another feel altogether! It’s so easy to use, but the only down side is that you can’t comment in blog posts directly, you have to go into the actual blog and sign into your account first. (I don’t save my passwords on my ipad).


Another amazing find was Padgram, I’m not too sure how I found this, probably from watching ‘What’s on my iPad?’ YouTube videos when I had my iPad mini! I think that this app is amazing for Instagram! It is basically an unofficial iPad Instagram app – it shows your Instagram feed in a 3×3 grid, that you can scroll through. It’s much faster to browse everyone’s images and to like them.


Personally, I like the Pinterest website but I find it a little irritating speed-wise to repin stuff. Amazingly, with this app it has made it so fast to do, and really easy to organise boards!


Day One
This app is my saviour! I have a really bad memory when it comes to remembering what I did on days, a week ago, on the weekend, or years ago. So luckily I found this app which is like a diary, but it’s really nicely set out. You can add images to your posts and either display a photo timeline or standard. You can also add tags, weather updates and links to your everyday posts. (And it can remind you each day to jot down what you did that day).


Nike+ Running
This is one of my most used and most addictive apps on my iPhone and iPad. I like to go running to make me feel better about myself and feel like I’m doing my bit for my health. So, when I saw this app, I knew that it would keep me engaged and motivated to carry on. This app either works with a sensor that you can buy (£20), or automatically with an iPhone 5. It tracks how many steps you’ve taken, your speed, distance and route – depending on whether you’re walking or running. If you’re outdoors, then it works with GPS and will show you where you have run and if you worked your body a lot on certain parts of your route. This app then let’s you publish your results from your run, so you can compete with friends or earn achievements. They also have a setting so you can set a goal or distance for your run, which they’ll tell you how far you have left through your earphones whilst running. This works in conjunction with the iPod on your iPhone, so you can still play music. It also has cool little notifications that tell you how well you’ve done, like Ellie Goulding congratulating you. There’s also a Facebook feature that you can share a status that you’ve started your run, then when your friends ‘like’ it, you get a cheer that plays through your earphones whilst running. Motivation boost!


Ted Talks
I only discovered this app during the week and I love it! If you’re like me, and like to learn new things all of the time, then this is great! They supply talks from seminars that they hold, which cover a lot of categories. That’s pretty much all I can say about this, straight forward!


Next up is my more ‘fun’ apps, such as games and my reading apps!
