ORGANISING MY PACK WITH THE FLIGHT001 SEATPAK

I love to feel organised. Okay, I need to feel organised. It’s something goes beyond all the lists and stretches into a desire to have everything packed in a logical and easily accessible way when I am travelling. And every time I leave the house. One of the things that helps me to this are

REVIEW | NEW HIGH PRO SHIELD CASE FOR iPHONE

You may be surprised to learn that I don’t like to have a big thick waterproof and rugged case on my phone all the time. They are super handy for when I’m doing fun outdoorsy things at the weekend, but they are too cumbersome for a normal day in the office. But I still need

CURRENTLY LOVING | APRIL 2017

How fab that I got to take my currently loving photo outside this month! Thanks April for showing us what springtime should look like – blue skies, warmer days, colourful flowers, fresh grass, and much longer evenings. This month my currently loving is rather diverse, and even includes some make-up…  Currently Loving | April 2017 01. Jeans and I have

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

FIVE APPS ALL GROWN-UPS NEED

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
