There are a few things in this busy life of mine that make my life easier and generally happier.
My smart phone is one of them, i am one of those people who feel like i’ve lost an arm if i leave it behind and generally check it a gazillion times a day. Coffee is another thing i could not function without, and so is coke zero (terrible habits i know, but a habit i am not about to kick anytime soon!)
And now my new Asus Nexus Tablet
I have been a huge pad/tablet fan for the past 4 years. I bought my first ipad when i was on maternity leave with Neo and used it a lot when he was first born and then continually afterwards. Hub’s being a bit of a techie geek has also had the Motorola Xoom and now on his recommendation the Asus Nexus Tablet.
When Argos reached out and asked if i would like to review one of their tablets, i jumped at the chance. My old ipad is looking a little worse for ware after being beaten up by a toddler and 3 and a half years of lots of use (and filled with baby games) This new tablet is just for me.. and i couldn’t be more pleased with it!
It now goes everywhere with me, to work, out for coffee (like this lovely Sunday), shopping and to bed even. It has become a product that i couldn’t live without (ok i probably could, but heck i don’t want to thats for sure!)
I thought i’d just do a quick run through of some of my favourite apps that are always on my main screen for quick access:
I love keeping up on all my favourite blogs, nice clear and easy format and it means i can read blogs on the go at any time (which i do a lot!) grabbing a few minutes here and there.
Sometimes i flit between bloglovin and Feedly, and lately ive been reading all my blogs through this format. I find the images load quickly and the layout is nice and easy, plus you can just sign straight in with your google account, easy peasy
Hi my name is Rachel and im a serial pinner.. yep i raise my hand to sayong lately i have really jumped on the pintrest wagon, its so inspiring , i love it!!
Are we pintrest friends? we should be! lets exchange boards shall we? this is me!
Major love for this app, its just so handy! When i first moved in in April i relied heavily on the argos app for viewing things for our new home and reserving them for convenient pick up..amazing. And now Christmas is coming (65 days people, 65!!) i am already browsing the toy section for a certain little boy to see what father christmas might be bringing him 😉
I LOVE to read. True story, we do not have a tv subscription in our house (you’re thinking im crazy now aren’t you) but we have been TV free for nearly a year and its been amazing. Don’t get me wrong we still watch films and we go through phases where we will watch a box set (supernatural was a recent one!love those Winchester boys!!) But day to day TV we do not have. So instead of putting something on the old box, just for the sake of it, i now read a book. I have read so many amazing books and the kindle app is just perfect for being able to pick up my book, read a few pages, get distracted by a busy 3 year old, book mark and put down to be picked up later.
After a good read through my fav blogs, a few chapters of my current book and yummy coffee and cinnamon swirls , hubs bought be a lovely dress i had had my eye on (New Look superstore has a Starbucks in it where i live, how good is that?!)
Sundays don’t get much better than that do they?!
