Funny signs you’re getting old

Having been out last week, I got home, put on the heating, boiled the kettle and set about separating my laundry that needed washing by colour. As soon as I realised exactly what I was doing, it made me question when exactly I grew up…

If you’ve ever experienced the same thing or repeating what your parents told you as a teenager, this video goes out to you my friend.

I’d love to hear your stories too, you know that you want to make me feel better!

Have a fantastic Christmas, I’m sending festive love to you all, you guys are awesome.

p.s. sorry for the lack of ‘Monday Currently’, I was having issues with the site… all resolved now. Service will consume as usual. Is that a sigh of relief I hear? I thought so! 😉

Tips on how to avoid the doghouse this Christmas!

18 sleeps. 18 SLEEPS. EIGHTEEN SLEEPS. That’s all that separates me from the big man, Santa. Oh yeah, baby.

With so little shopping time left to go, boys, it’s time to start thinking of gifts for your loved ones. Yes by loved ones I mean family, your mates (unlikely I realise), but most importantly your partner. You see, your partner holds the power to make Christmas one of the most special or painful times of year.

So without further ado, let me give you some tips to keep you out of the doghouse this Christmas.

Probably worth also noting that you could buy the most amazing gift in the world, but if you rock up at 4am on Christmas morning having been out with the lads the night before, leaving you incapable of eating Christmas dinner… it’s going to be an uphill struggle.

I’d love to hear from you, so make me happy and leave me a comment.

Much Thursday love.

Perfect Gifts For Your Geek This Xmas

It’s officially 20 days until Christmas. That means that there’s only 19 more sleeps, 473 hours, 28377 minutes or 1,702,757 seconds to go. Not much shopping time at all.

Given that I’m a not-so-secret geek, it’ll come as no surprise that technology’s at the top of my list for the big guy this year… as it is most years. Well, that and Miu Miu bags of course (geeks can style too!).

This year’s top gadget has to be the Apple iPad Mini. Yes, yes, I’m still a fan girl. I’m OK with that. If your loved one is lucky enough to already have bagged themselves the iPad Mini, here are some accessories you might want to consider to keep it company:

Merino Wool Felt Charcoal Case with Leather Straps £19 on Etsy.

 

Keep your iPad Mini nice and warm in this lovely felt case… the pop of colour on the straps are guaranteed to make it stand out from the crowd.

Sock Monkey iPad Sleeve £15.50 on Etsy.

 

A sensible case a little too grown up for you? This sock monkey comes to order and is quite frankly CUTE!

Pro Quality  Fisheye, Telephoto, Wide Angel and Macro lenses from £12 from Photojojo.

 

For all of those budding photographers out there, these lenses allow you to clip on to the camera

JBL Wireless Speaker for iPad Mini – £124 on JBL.

 

An absolute must for all of those Spotify fans out there like myself. Turn your iPad into an entertainment system with this speaker!

Charging Dock for iPad £1 minimum bid on Kickstarter.

 

Now that Apple is no longer making their beloved charging dock, this is a must-have purchase from a kickstarter funded project.

If your loved one is like myself and getting into cooking (just call me domestic goddess!), why not consider this kitchen friendly stand? It’s £21 from Chef Sleeve.

 

 

Of course, if none of that whets your appetite, there’s always the DODOcase that I wrote about a few weeks ago, which you can have personalised with your very own message. Now, that’s love!

Many of these products are shipped from the States, so be sure to order them nice and early. Oh and it’s always handy to get the iPad Mini first too, which you can pick up from Carphone Warehouse  😉

If you think I’ve missed a must-have accessory, leave a comment. Anything that helps me stay hip and down with the kids is always appreciated!

Much love,
