Apple Watch Review

Well hello lovelies,

I got an Apple watch during the week and I want to do a first impressions for you. Then maybe in like two weeks I can do a review. 

When I first seen the Apple watch, I though why would you need to do all that with a watch. But I actually find it quite useful. 

Here is my watch at the moment 
Obviously I have Mickey Mouse on it. I hope they bring out more characters for it. Can I suggest Stitch??!

Here is the packaging 
Above is the over all box

Above is the watch in the box still with the wrapping. I think it all looks very sleek. I love the White strap for it and I know you can buy other colours if you like.
Above is the charger and plug. Basically you plug it in and the watch will sit on the silver circular part. It's magnetic so the watch will stick to it and charge. 

Her are my pros

  • It looks good. 
  • The colour of the bands can be changed. 
  • The screen is clean, bright and sensitive to touch (that does help with a touch screen object). 
  • I can keep my phone in my bag with out worrying if I will hear it ringing. 
  • I can receive email, calls, Twitter, messages and the news. 
  • It's vibrated and bings when you get a notification. 
  • I can decided if it worst getting my phone out when a notification comes in. 
  • You can ping your lost mobile as we all know how they like to get up and walk away. 
Above is Twitter

Above is my messages. 

Cons

  • It needs to be on speak when a call comes in. 
  • You can only use a pre-typed message or speak into it to reply to a text message (no good for texting the other half then hehe)
  • It is very pricey starting at £339 
  • Watch straps even though you can change them starts at £39 and up wards. 

As you can see my pros are out weighing the cons!!

At the moment I do like it. It means if I'm just running in to the shop I don't need to take my phone. 

Do I think its worth the £340 for the sports model? Yes I do. Do I the next model up is worth the £500 and odd Apple are asking for it.....no. The only difference between the sports model and the next one up, is the strap. All the materials used and hardware on the watch are the same. Only the strap is magnetic.

That's my first impression on it. 

Do you have one? What's your opinion on them?

Holly's Outfit Of The Day 20.06.15

Well hello lovelies,

Here is Holly's out fit today. 
Here she is wear a lovely flowery top, which she got as part of a set as a present. So I'm sorry but I'm not sure the price of this one. 
Her shorts were £9 from next this time last year!! Her skinny butt shorts are only a 1 to 1and a half years old!!
Tights were a present again so I'm not sure how much they cost of where they were from. 
Shoes are twinkle toes by sketcher at £25 I think. She is a size 7 now!!

Holly doesn't go to Baby Ballet any more as I think she is just too young. She wasn't interested anymore unless she had a toy to play with. All she wanted to do in between was go get her shoes or into her bag. So I decided to take her out. It wasn't enjoyable for her with me shouting at her and I wasn't enjoying shouting at her. 

I hope you have all had a great weekend. 

Speak soon.

Beelzebub Book Review (Ancient Legends Book 2)

Well hello lovelies,

I have a book review for you today. It is the second in the Ancient Legends Series called Beelzebub Girl by Jayde Scott. 

I was kind of bored by this book. When I think back on it now, I liked the book but it took a while to get going and for a while I had no idea where it was going. 

It didn't really pick up till chapter 25 where I was like OMG!! Then I couldn't put it down!!

This book centres around Cassandra who you meet briefly in the first book A Job From Hell. 

Cass finds her soul mate and has to fight to keep him alive or be subject to a horrible fate. It doesn't help that her mate Dallas is mortal. 

***SPOILER ALERT***

Cass will be bound to Hell for all eternity unless she finds and marries her soul mate with whom she shares the bond. She finds that mate in a mortal named Dallas. Who just so happens to be the brother of our last main character Amber. You meet Dallas briefly in book 1. 

If Dallas dies, Cass will be subjected to a terrible fate. So she has to keep him alive at all costs. Which is hard when your the Devils daughter, he's a mortal and you have him thinking he's in and your dad "Bob" lives and runs Disneyland....

Looking back even though it was slow I did still kind of enjoy this book. I loved the relationship between Cass and Dallas even though they kept way to many secrets from each other. 

Over all I would give this another 🌟🌟🌟 3 out of 5 stars. I would recommend for a light summer read if you like vampires, ghosts and ghouls.

I like these books for my reader as they are cheap and a good read considering the price.

Let me know if you like this series.

What's In Holly's Stay Over Night Bag

Well hello lovelies,

I done a what's in my baby bag months and months ago, I would actually say probably years ago!! 

So as Holly is staying over night at her gran and granddad, I thought I would show you what's in her over night bag. 

To be honest now she's a toddler it's not that different from her day to day bag. But here goes. 

This is her bag. Olaf from primark and it was £7. 

This is pretty much the only difference from her day to day bag. This is her next day outfit. Pink zippy from next for £12
Blue tshirt from Debenhams for £6. Joggers from Asda for £8 and socks were 8 for £4 from Asda. 

We always have 3 nappies, juice extra socks, whisps toothbrushes, extra hair ties and clips, baby wipes and a sun hat. 
The nappies and wipes are from Aldi and I've never had any issues with them. The hat was from Asda for £4

She always has a set of pj's in her bag. As every other night we go to my mum and dads for dinner. So she gets her pj's on when she is there. I'm sure these were £8 from Asda. 

Always have a spare set of clothes in there. Just incase we have a leak or are very messy. Vest from next. Not sure how much the pack was. I'm sure it was £12. Trousers from m&s for £8. The long sleeved top is from Tu for £6. 

Let's not forget mousy. This is her fav teddy. 

I love watching what other people have in their bags :) 
Let me know what you think.

A Job From Hell Book Review (Ancient legends series book 1)

Well hello lovelies,

I have another book review for you today. 

I would normally do a series review on books but have you seen how long this series is?! It's like 6 or 7 books long!! 

Anyway this book is called A Job From Hell by Jayde Scott and it's the first in the Ancient Legends series. 

This book centres around Amber who is a young English girl looking to earn some money over the summer holidays by moving to Scotland to house keep for Aidan. Little does she know her life will change forever!!

While in Scotland her brother Dallas pulls her into trying to steal some precious gems he found. But lets just say that doesn't turn out to well for poor Amber who now has half the supernatural world chasing her

Amber has some serious hurdles to get over and a decision to make on her love life. Will she or won't she?? 

This book involves the supernatural. So vampires ghouls and ghosts. Oh and the Devils daughter. 

If you like young adult fantasy with vampires and a love story you will love this. 

I enjoyed this book. At some points in some chapters, I got slightly board but over all a good light read. 

I would give this book 🌟🌟🌟 3 out of 5 stars. I would recommend this series if your just wanting a break from heavy reading as it's easy and packed from the get go. 

Let me know if you have read this series.

Poachie Egg Review

Well hello lovelies,

Have any of you ever heard about the poatchie bags to make a poached egg in?? Neither had I until my mum brought them in. 

They are small tear dropped white bags 

First you want to get your water up to the boil then turn it down to a simmer. 

Then you open up the poatchie bag and place it in a cup like so
I couldn't take a photo as this had to be done fast. You crack your egg into it then add it to your simmering water. 
I cook this for 4 mins which makes the perfect poached eggs

Then voila 
Poached egg on buttery toast with brown sauce. 

The poached egg is perfect with this product. No snottery white parts and the yolk is still soft and runny 

Over all I would give these babies a 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 out of 5 stars!!!

Let me know what you think!!

Game Of Thrones Theory

I HAVE A THEORY!!

I am not ready to give up Jon Snow yet!! What if he is brought back to life by Melisandre the fire blood witch person??! 

What if Jon Snow isn't Ned Starks son?? What if Jon Snow is the off spring of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen?? When NED found her she was dying. But of what?? Dying after having gave birth to a child? 

Neds story is Lyanna was kidnapped. But what if she fell in love with Rhaegar?? Or even if she didn't and he raped her. She could have still had his child. In one of the episode Sir Barristan seems to have a totally different view of him. Not liking to fight and singing in the streets to his people. 

Then because she was Neds sister, Neds decided to protect him as the (to his knowledge at the time) last Targaryen?? 

Also in an episode Stannis says to his wife that Ned bedding a whore (excuse the language) wasn't like him. 

Plus the series is called A Song Of Ice (Jon Snow) And Fire (Daenerys Targaryen) 

What do you all think??? 
Let me know in the comments??!

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Review

Lovelies!!

Where do I even start with this final!! 

Jon Snow is dead!! I was and still am in shock! How can they kill Jon Snow!! I just can't!! But I want to know where ghost is? He has protected him through 5 seasons and now he decided to have a nap??! In the book Jon is a warge so will he have went into ghost??! or will that fire witch bring him back??!!!! I just can't let him go lol

Poor Cersi! I know she has done bad things but making her walk through the streets naked, getting stuff smeared and spat on just wasn't nice. Who/what was that big huge zombie guard thing?!! It's like a big Orc!! 

Sam and Gilly  going off to old town. Not sure how I feel about that yet! 

Araya going all assassin and killing that Kings guard guy was awesome. I'm glad her story line picked up as it was really starting to bore me. I'm also glad they stuck with her going blind like they done in the book. That will be interesting to see what happens. 

Omg don't even get me started on Danerys!! She's going to get raped and sold as a slave because that what the dothraki  do!! Why did she drop her ring?? What was specially about that. It obviously was special as it seemed like a big part of the scene. 

Tyrion being left to rule Mareen with the other two will also be ingesting I think. 

What did you all think of the final??!

It's made me want to start to read the book again!
