Netflix really have amped up their game in regards to how many original films and series they are releasing. They are very well-made also and there are plenty to choose from. I love a good Christmas movie (the cheesier the better) and have already watched as many as I can in the lead up to Christmas. I am going to cover some of my favourites in this blog post, hope you check some of them out!
Gousto Food Delivery
I recently subscribed to Gousto which is a food delivery service. They portion all of the ingredients you need to prepare and cook delicious meals from their website/app. This results in no food waste and they are super quick to make as well (my meals only took half an hour each). I will be talking about my meals and the Gousto box service in this post!
Christmas Adverts 2018
We have a lot of great commercials during the holidays in the UK and I have compiled some of them here for you to watch. It seems more and more retailers are going all-out for Christmas with their advertising campaigns as the years go on. This year there is even an advert banned from airing on TV from Iceland and a Coca-Cola lookalike from Aldi. Enjoy!

Apple Special Event October 2018
So I know I said I wasn't going to post about Apple for a while after five blog posts in September/October! How could I not speak about the new iPad Pro, MacBook Air and other announcements from their October Special Event in New York. I usually watch keynote presentations live (as they're usually 10am California time which is 6pm in the U.K.) however this one was 10am New York time, which at the moment is only 2pm in the U.K. (our clocks have changed back an hour before the USA's have). Nevertheless I watched it as soon as I got home from work. I am trying something different this week by posting my notes taken during the presentation! These are copied straight from my Notes app and I'll add comments underneath speaking about each point made. Hope you enjoy reading!
London Trip October 2018
I visited London last week from 11th to 14th October to visit my friend Jade and watch Michael McIntyre's Big World Tour show in the O2. I travelled to London Paddington on Thursday morning by train and got there early afternoon. We stayed in a hotel near Lancaster Gate and Kensington Gardens / Hyde Park and had a lovely stay.
Apple Watch Series 4 Review
So I have had my Apple Watch Series 4 for three weeks now and wanted to review it for my blog. I have posted a lot about Apple recently from the Special Event to iOS 12 and product reviews of the iPhone XS Max and now the Apple Watch Series 4. I promise that'll be it for a while as I'm all Apple'd out!
Apple macOS Mojave Review
Unfortunately my MacBook Pro from Early 2011 is no longer upgradeable with Apple's new macOS releases. I am currently running macOS High Sierra but I have had the chance to use macOS Mojave in work on the iMac so can still post a quick review on it! I'll be covering a few of the features I use/like most in this post.
Apple iPhone XS Max Review
The iPhone XS and XS Max came out last Friday (21st September) and I upgraded my handset in Cardiff. I am on the iPhone Upgrade Program so pay a monthly fee to Barclays Partner Finance and basically lease the iPhone until a new one is released. I do this because I don't have to worry about selling the device after a year or two of use (which I used to do) and it is covered by AppleCare+ the entire time.
Apple iOS 12 Review
The much anticipated iOS 12 update was released this Monday and I wanted to write this blog post as a quick review and recap of what was in the update. I have only been using the software since Monday so I haven't used everything to it's full potential but I have a pretty good idea of how things work and what updates have been integrated.
