Introduction to: Canon EOS M100

One of the reasons I adore being a blogger is the opportunity to take photographs. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a camera in my hands. This love has opened loads of doors for me from attending the British Touring Car Championship Media Launch and becoming one of the first official photographers for Race Makers. I adore taking photos for An Ocean Glimmer, I could spend hours just moving props around and thinking about the images.

Over the past couple of months, I have been looking for a new camera, I wanted to step up from my previous one to a compact DSLR. I’ve had experiences with DSLR cameras throughout college and university, but knew this would be too big for personal photos. I’ve even borrowed Dad’s on occasions, I love having the options with the different lenses. That’s why I knew I needed a compact DSLR, the perfect portable package, now where do I start looking!

Review of the Samsung Galaxy Watch

Technology has become a massive part of our everyday lives. We’re all wanting to create a smart environment. From being able to turn on our heating with a touch of a button on our phone and with voice control, enable Spotify to play our favourite song. Today I wanted to chat about my experience just over six months in to using the Samsung Galaxy Watch.

I have wanted a smart watch for a little while, I previously had a Sony Smart Watch, but unfortunately, that didn’t last long. Also it was bulky and didn’t really look like a watch. As a lover on Samsung and Android, it was no wonder I picked up the Galaxy Watch, it connects easily to my phone and in Rose Gold, looks pretty good. I couldn’t say no to Rose Gold!

Current Netflix Top Picks // April 2019

Netflix has been killing it recently! They have some amazing programmes and movies you should definitely watch. I pretty much watch something day in, day out on Netflix. I have been truly addicted to some, weekends are great as I pretty much watch a whole season in one sitting. Before you realise there are no more episodes and you’re waiting five months for the next season.

The last time I shared my Favourite Netflix Series was back in December 2017! A lot has happened and changed since then, now is a perfect time to share my Current Netflix Top Picks. I’m really excited to share these with you today, please let me know down in the comments if you’ve watched any of these yourself. They’re all pretty different from one another, I love the diversity of programmes.

Moving from Winter to Spring is probably the wrong time of year, it’s great watching Netflix during the colder months. It’s lovely sitting on the sofa, with a blanket, maybe even cuddling up with your loved one and watching a movie on Netflix, or even binge-watching one of their many series. Now it’s starting to warm up, I will be watching less so hopefully nothing much good and exciting comes out!

Must-See Movies of 2019

Around this time last year, I shared my Must-See Movies of 2018. I am such a film buff, I adore anything from family and action to fantasy and sci-fi. 2018 was a great year for movies, some of my favourites were Deadpool 2, Avengers: Infinity War and Venom, they really killed it with all the movies. Some failed at the box office whereas others were a massive hit, I’m looking at you Black Panther.

For 2019, I thought I would do the same and share with you my Must-See Movies of 2019 because let me tell you now, there are some big ones coming out this year! Also, I think 2019 will be the year I go back to my childhood, you’ll find out in a moment what I mean by that. There is definitely a long list of movies for 2019, I’ve had to control myself and limit this list to eight. If I went anymore, we would be here for weeks.
