Currently Loving | February 2017

I have to admit that I found January a very long month. It seemed to go on forever. I know that wishing our lives away is not good, and certainly doesn’t fit in with my life is all about the journey mantra, but sometimes it’s good to keep moving forward! And with the turn of

Today we are treated to a post inspired by Shine Media to help us all feel a little bit more organised when we’re feeling super busy. Here are five apps you should check out if you don’t already use them…   Five Apps All Grown-ups Need Between work meetings, families, traffic and bills, life as an adult can

CURRENTLY LOVING | JANUARY 2017

My blog is primarily about the outdoors, adventure, travel and my bucket list, but I do like to deviate slightly once a month for my regular currently loving post. More the type of post a ‘lifestyle blogger’ might write, I enjoy putting these ones together because they help me to stop and consider the things

Gift Ideas for Outdoor Lovers (2016)

With all the Christmas adverts on the telly box, the town Christmas lights sparkling away, and all this talk of sales and delivery deadlines, you can’t blame me for turning my attention to the gifts I might want to give (and maybe also receive…) this year. So I thought I’d join in with the festivities

Currently Loving | October 2016

Ahhhh October, the month that Autumn really gets going making everything outside super colourful, but equally the month that the mornings and evenings grow darker and darker meaning I can’t see that beautiful colour most days. Anyway, time for my monthly favourites blog post, a chance for me to gather a few things together that I’m particularly enjoying

Currently Loving | September 2016

As you will have noticed I have had a few months off the monthly Currently Loving posts here on Splodz Blogz; I was away for three months then had a super busy month at work in August, and September has quite simply flown by. I did think I should start in October but I had

Bring Back the Postcard! Review: Postsnap

Be honest. When was the last time you sent a postcard when you were away on holiday? How many years? Ten? I used to love receiving postcards in the mail from family, and still get them from my mum and dad when they go away, but in the age of online sharing and wifi everywhere it’s very

After a Weekend with Instagram Stories

My favourite social network at the moment has changed again… last week the Facebook-owned photo sharing platform announced the Instagram Stories, a new feature that allows users to share all the moments of their day, not just the ones that turn out perfect enough to include on their profile feed. My first thought, like many

Review: Ghostek Atomic Waterproof iPhone Case

Knowing that I would be wanting to get full use out of my phone camera while I was away in North America, my friends at Mobile Fun sent me one of their new waterproof cases to try out. The Ghostek Atomic 2 is waterproof, dustproof and shock resistant, meaning you can stop worrying about what

Review: TeckNet PowerGen Power Pack

As someone who loves both her gadgets and tech as well as getting out and about into the countryside for some time away from it all, no kit list is complete without some kind of battery power. It’s now a good year or two since I took the advice of the equally gadget and outdoors

Keeping Your iPad Safe | Review: STM Dux for iPad

What a wonderful invention the iPad is. I take mine everywhere. Especially when I travel. While my phone acts as my camera and my link to the outside world, my iPad provides me with hours of entertainment and a way to edit photos and update Splodz Blogz while on the move. But it’s fragile. So

Currently Loving | February 2016

It’s the first Monday of the month so it must be time for me to talk “stuff”. Since Christmas I’ve been making a real effort at home to reduce the amount of “stuff” in my house, and have taken several bag fulls to my local charity shop. But there is still a place for nice things, especially
