Movie nights are the best. After a few long days dealing with work and other things, simply getting together with the entire family to watch a movie or two at home is the perfect distraction. The kids love movie nights and you don’t have to do much to prepare one. They chant for popcorn and snuggly blankets too! Of course, you can make the whole tradition of having weekly or bi-weekly movie nights even more exciting with the help of a few gadgets and appliances.
Kids who are born at this age do not need to learn technology. They open their eyes in the face of it and by the time they are toddlers they know how to swipe and take pictures from these phones and other digital devices. When they get older it is like second nature for them. But as these devices have facilitated many things, they also come with various troubles especially for kids who are vulnerable and naïve. Is it safe? Dangerous social media trends, online predation, anonymous chatting, games and sexting apps and cyber bullying and the internet addiction are the reasons child safety experts recommend supervision and monitoring of children’s digital activities. It is necessary to observe and make sure that they act responsibly and safely.
In this digital age, it’s likely that technology is an important part of your family life.

If you’re wondering how to do this, you’ll need to read on. Below are five ways that you can protect your family’s technology.
Imagine this: you take a photo, it is awesome. You want to sell photos online for the best price. You download Gallerist and guess what, you can do exactly that! It is a great tool for selling and buying photos, showcasing your work with other like-minded people and getting some inspiration from others.
For some time now I’ve been wanting to be able to edit photos and images for my blog and social media, but have been discouraged by how difficult it was on my last few attempts. However recently all that changed after I tried out Movavi Photo Editor on a whim, after someone recommended it as an ‘easy’ way to edit photos.
I love photography, but there isn’t always an occasion where I have the right photo to resemble the moral of my story. So, I turn to stock photography. It’s a quick “search and download” process. I have always been able to find the right photo. It’s quite fun being nosey through someone else’s photos too.
Because I am a bit of a geek I downloaded the iOS 11 beta version today and I am very excited about what Apple have been working on. I have been playing with it today and there is a lot of cool stuff that Apple have really thought about, from: the notification centre to the all new files directory and the new live photos editing. That is by far the most exciting thing for me! The new update works on various iPhone models, all of which you can get from EE.
Thanks to the technology world, it has become much easier to find and land your dream part-time job. There are apps to help you in each stage of the process ranging from creating your professional profile, practicing answering interview questions by doing something other than talking to yourself in a mirror (though that it is still a great method!), to having a convenient way to follow-up and leave a great impression after an interview, which can be very underestimated.
For the past year we have been saving for our first family home, one we can buy and call our own. Decorate as we like, fix the broken things within a week (or even a year would be great) and have that perfect roll tub bath that I have been dreaming about forever. We have been saving a lot and have finally got enough for that all important house deposit. But the fun doesn’t stop there.
I thought it was about time I started sharing some of my tips on how I keep organised with my work and my hobbies. Both at work and at home, I use Trello – it can used in a browser or on an app. I have it on my iPhone, iPad and work computer using the browser. It is so easy to use and updates in real time, so you can flip between devices quickly.
