A look back on my year | 2017

2017 didn't kick off to the best start for me, I was pretty ill, that is something I don't want to go into as it was a horrific time for me over the Christmas period of 2016. I wanted to make this year a good one but things slowly got a bit worse. I'm not going to say names or anything on here because I'm done with the shit they put me through and like to think that they have grown up and learnt their lesson now. I spent a lot of 2017 being paranoid about my blog, wanting to shut it down especially after the abuse I was sent, I had disgusting comments written on my posts about my health and suffering with HG. I was called a liar and a bully because another person saw fit to make up lies about me.

Tech Tuesday | Xupo Bluetooth Tracker.*

*This product was sent to me for free, all opinions are my own for more info please check out my contact & disclaimer.
We are lucky to live in a time where technology can be an aid to help us find things that are either lost or stolen, keys are one of such things that people lose constantly and considering how needed they are I'm not surprised that so many cool little devices have been made in order to help people find them. The *Xupo is one of these gadgets which I was lucky enough to be sent out to review, it can help to find more than just your keys and is only small so looks like a typical size charm, I've used this little device in my bag and on my keys and I'm really pleased with how well it works and would be happy to recommend it to friends and family.

Favourite games I played in 2017

This year I haven't played as many games as I have wanted to, I think having vertigo played a huge part in this as I wasn't able to look at a screen without feeling like I was going to throw up. I still suffer from it but right now it's under control and not making my NCS as bad as it usually does. On twitter I asked if I should do a post on my favourite games I've played this year, obviously it's going to be a mix of old and new games as I'm not the kind of person to just stick with playing the latest releases. What I did realise this year was how much of a mix of genres I enjoy playing, I feel like I've started to be more confident in what I play and what games I discuss on here.

My blog has been nominated for the UK Blog Awards 2018!

Hey everyone, the other day voting went live for the Uk Blog Awards and my blog has been nominated for the categories Digital & Technology and Lifestyle, this is only the first round but I'm still so excited to see the outcome not just for me but for the wonderful people who are also in it! I did a post before about why not winning an award isn't the end of the world and I still stand by that even though I would love to have a chance to even be shortlisted in the UK blog awards. This year I have had a lot of doubt in myself when it came to my blog but I shook that doubt off and got out my content out for all to read, reviewing games has been a hard prospect at times because you get a lot of people stating your opinon is wrong becaus they don't agree but ive always tried my best to ignore these remarks and stick at it, I actually changed my content over a year ago and decided I wanted my blog to reflect me and my interests more than anything and it's grown more than I thought it would.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp | Review.

Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: Nintendo Entertainment Planning & Development
Mobile Game

I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of animal crossing pocket camp and the day finally arrived, I was a bit sad that Australia got it before us but I didn't give in and make another account from the location instead I decided to wait. I discovered animal crossing back when I owned my first Nintendo ds I purchased Animal Crossing Wild World then I got animal crossing New Leaf for Nintendo 3ds and eventually my parents got us Animal Crossing City Folk for the Wii. People would tell me how much of a pointless game it was and why I shouldn't play it but honestly, I found it to be one of the most relaxing and cute games I had played besides Harvest Moon. This version of Animal Crossing is a free mobile game that has all the same kind of elements as the other games but a lot more stripped back, you will be pleased to find a lot of the old faces from previous games who you meet along the way whilst levelling up.
