Now i am not one to brag about anything i own, and i certainly never have as i know people long for items which are just too expensive for them to buy. But i would recommend anyone who would like to own more expensive items to try out websites like Very.co.uk and Littlewoods. They give you options of small payments each month, making it easier to manage your money and still be able to buy things like an iPad. My most recent purchase of course was the iPad mini and i thought I'd just tell you a little about it and why it's so amazing!
Now for a total procrastinator like me, i really needed something to help me plan things easier, to get a bit of steadiness to my days and a bit more productivity. The iPad helps me with small tasks like this, even to write down dates and memos which are needed for future reference. I enjoy using the memo pad to help write lists for post ideas and something as simple as that really helps to keep myself that little bit more organised, and motivated if anything. I keep my apps in folders which relate to each other such as my Blogging folder. I think it's ideal as a blogger to keep organised and make sure you have the right websites and apps ready to use, just to keep your blog out there and stay active as i know myself it can be hard to find readers who genuinely enjoy reading your blog.
I know you're probably thinking i could do this all on a phone, pen and paper, even a laptop. Yeah i can, but I really just needed something to help motivate myself and I'm a proper lover for technology. And because i never was able to buy anything without a job i feel sometimes it is nice to buy something for yourself that you know is going to benefit you in a good way! (Also paying with very i haven't actually payed for my iPad yet, you get the option to pay 3 payments or the lower payment every month which is amazing to me).
I can tell you now the iPad Mini is an amazing piece of technology, you can literally use it for anything, music, gaming, actually being productive with writing! and so much more. It's nice and light, small and you can take it literally anywhere. Perfect gift for anyone and if you're looking into buying one, i say why the hell not?! Do it! :)
