Since the academic year has recently started I thought I'd do a quick post to share some tips that I used or wish I knew at the time! I often found myself feeling pretty prepared and motivated at the start of the year but hopefully, some of these will help that to continue all year round, or more at least!

Attitude and Behaviour

Put in the effort now - when you get further into the year you'll thank yourself for putting in the time to learn everything properly, especially when it comes to revision as you'll already have materials to look back at.
> Mistakes are good - it can be disheartening when you make mistakes or don't get the feedback you hoped for but learning from them is a really productive and useful way to help improve.
> Strengths and Weaknesses - everyone has things they are better at and things they may struggle with, finding that out now and setting time aside to focus on the things you find harder will help reduce stress. You could also study w…


I was recently contacted by Philex Electronic Ltd, a leading brand that produces a range of different electronic equipment. They have branched out to create an online presence called 'Purfect Soluxions' which involves exclusive content being sold directly through Amazon and a platform in which they can share and create content with a number of influencers.

I am a huge lover of technology and love trying new bits out. You can find a number of different products that I've talked about in my posts so I was really excited about this collaboration opportunity! 

I have two products to review today, however, first I would just like to commend the company itself. The efficient and informative emails, as well as the super quick arrival of the products, made it a pleasure to work with them! 

Lexi 4k Action Camera

I've always enjoyed experimenting with different cameras and elements of photography and an action camera is something I've not properly used before. I was really intrigued to try this out, it came with some accessories which allow you to mount it onto things such as a bike, as well as the waterproof housing which I am yet to properly use! The instructions are all pretty clear and the camera itself is simple to use. What I like best is how portable it is, it would be perfect to take around on a day trip or holiday - especially an adventure or extreme sports one!

I have to say that I haven't been anywhere to properly test out the 'action' part of the camera but I did test out the video and camera features just to see what it was like. I went for a walk around my town to see what sort of shots I could get. Now the quality isn't amazing - though I definitely need to play around with the settings more, but as it is so affordable and designed for action shots then I don't think that's too bad! 

Here are a few images & a video that I took using the camera whilst walking around my town, I definitely need to adjust the exposure and test out different settings but all of them came out clear! 

Another useful aspect with this is that you can download an app which then allows you to control the camera straight from your phone. It's also really easy to experiment with different settings using the app and will be useful if someone else is using the camera (attached to a bike, underwater etc.) as I will still be able to see what is being recorded. 

Overall I am really pleased with the product and I will definitely be using it when I go out and about. I can't wait to take it on holiday with me in the summer, but I will definitely continue to experiment and test it out in the meantime! If you're looking for a portable, affordable and easy to use action camera then this is definitely one I would recommend and you can get it straight from Amazon

iStar Wireless Charger

I've been intrigued by wireless chargers for a while now, I wanted to know are they useful or are they just pointless? I really like the design of this particular one, it's really thin, lightweight and looks pretty sleek so would be a nice addition to a desk or bedside table. There isn't much to set up so it's really easy to use and it also works through most phone cases.

The way that this works is to use Qi, which essentially provides energy through magnetic induction. In order for this wireless charger to work on your device, it needs to be Qi compatible or you can buy a Qi receiver/a wireless charging case. I have the iPhone 7 so needed to buy a receiver (I got mine from eBay for less than £3) and whilst that may seem a fuss, the receiver itself is so thin and small that it's not a big deal. What I like most about wireless charging is that I can easily pick up my phone and get up quickly if needed. Sometimes it's easy to get tangled up in cables and you can forget that it is plugged in and charging so this is definitely a benefit! 

Now obviously it still uses a wire since the actual charger itself has to be plugged in, which sounds pretty ridiculous. However, this would be an ideal thing to have on a desk at work or home, especially if you're frequently taking calls or needing to move around as you don't have the fuss of constantly unplugging your phone all the time and can just leave the wireless charging pad there ready! I'll definitely be using this when I'm blogging, sketching or writing to do lists as I'm constantly switching between my phone, notebooks or laptop so this will make it much easier! 

Another important aspect of this is obviously how well it charges your device and it definitely charged mine pretty quickly! I rarely let my phone's battery percentage get too low anyway but this is the perfect thing to use if you need a quick boost before heading out somewhere! I did let my battery percentage drop to see how quickly it would charge all the way back up to 100% and I was pleased with how quickly it did it, it's not super quick but at this price, I can't complain so all in all I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a wireless charger! Again you can buy it directly from Amazon here

A massive thank you again to Philex Electronic Ltd for reaching out to me, I'm really excited to see how Purfect Soluxions develops and connects with influencers, I will definitely be looking into other products to try out in the future!


  1. It's pretty cool how you got to partner up with Philex. I've heard so much about the GoPro that I was wondering where their competitor went XD. It's pretty cool to see this action camera at work! I love wireless chargers! Keeps the mess away. Glad you're enjoying it so far!

    1. Yeah they were both great to try out, especially the camera!! I’m definitely going to be using it more and more, totally agree about keeping the mess away with wireless chargers as well! Thanks for reading x

Last Saturday I turned 19 and to celebrate, my boyfriend kindly paid for a trip to London. So on the Friday we morning, we made the journey from our little town to the busy streets of city life. The journey actually went really quickly, (around 2 hours) though we were both very hungry when we got there!

We stayed in The Grange St. Pauls hotel which was absolutely gorgeous and I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The room itself was a perfect size - spacious but still felt cosy and the bed was super comfortable, something I was very appreciative after the long day! However my favourite part and one of the reasons I chose this hotel were the leisure facilities. The pool itself was amazing and it was so nice to be able to use it on the Friday afternoon and again on the Saturday morning before we checked out. There was also a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a gym, as well as a spa, which you could book various treatments at. Unfortunately we didn't really use too many of these as most…


March is always a pretty busy time, it's known as the 'birthday month' in our family because between the 1st and 21st, 7 of us have celebrated our birthdays! This means that there is a lot of family time, a lot of presents and a lot of cake which is a pretty good mix - plus there are loads of things I've been loving this month so I'll get started!
Something I had to mention in this monthly favourites was the rather strange weather we had! We'd not had any decent snow since 2013 and then we had multiple snow days in March, so I think it's fair to say that Spring was delayed! I actually really like the snow, it's so amazing to look out at, especially when it is untouched! Although I did slip over on the ice, straight on my that wasn't as great!


This month I have worn my denim jacket constantly, I don't know how I've lived without one for so long! Besides the random snow days, we've definitely had a few milder and m…
