My Thoughts on the iPhone 11 Pro Max

About a month into lockdown, I managed to get myself a slightly early upgrade on my phone contract and finally got my hands on the iPhone 11 Pro Max. I knew that I wanted a big phone, having become accustomed to the iPhone 8 Plus, so the 11 Pro Max was the obvious choice, when looking to upgrade only 6 months prior to Apple’s new release. With smartphone contracts so...

Apps I Have Downloaded During Social Distancing

I haven’t posted much over the past week because, truthfully, I am struggling a little to know what to post now that the world has kind of turned upside down….

Writing a Joint Will with SmartWill

•Gifted• At the grand old age of thirty, I am a little ashamed to admit that I have never written a proper, legitimate will before now. I did write something up when I was in my early twenties, which I believe will provide some amusement after I pass away (the music was Mad World, after I became obsessed with the Skins TV Show cover version), but it really didn’t cover...

The Social Media Management Platform You Need To Try

•Sponsored Post• Alongside blogging, I have been working on a freelance basis as a social media manager for a few select clients.
