A Month With My 6th Gen iPad

It’s been a whole month since I bought my latest piece of technology and I’m still obsessed.

It’s all down to a Sky TV advert really. They were advertising the new iPad super cheap on TV so Simon and I knew that we had to get one each.

I bought the Gold 6th Gen iPad (9.7″) and I love it. It’s cheap and cheerful and great for blogging.

When I first got the iPad, air was shocked at how heavy it was. I think that was because I was used to using a MacBook Air though. Over time, I got used to the iPad being heavier and I don’t even notice it anymore.

The gold colour on the back of the iPad is absolutely stunning. It’s shiny and pretty and I just love it. It makes me feel classy for using it.

My absolute favourite thing about this iPad is that it is compatible with the Apple Pencil. I’m going to do so much drawing hen I eventually get the money to start drawing and get a pencil.

There are two things that I’m not a huge fan of though. The first one is the camera and then second is the keyboard.

The camera quality is pretty poor but I suppose that you don’t really buy an iPad for taking photos and doing photography.

The keyboard has to be Bluetooth as it doesn’t connect to a normal Apple Keyboard. I suppose on the plus side of this, the keyboard will be a lot cheaper and I could probably pick up a good one on eBay.

My favourite thing to do on this iPad is play games. Why are games so much more fun on a big screen?!

Have you ever tried the iPad 6th gen? If you have, let me know what you think of it.

Hair at No4, Wrexham ♡ Review and Experience

As you probably know by now, I have very short hair. A few months ago, I cut off most my long hair into a pixie cut.

Now that I am sick of not being able to style my hair much, I am growing my hair out. You can read more on that here.

As I mentioned, you need to get your hair trimmed often to make it grow quicker!

For that very reason, I made myself an appointment to get a trim at Hair at No4 in Wrexham, UK.

When I went in the make the appointment, I booked it for the 6th. However, I decided I couldn’t wait any longer so I rang up on the 1st and booked myself in for the 2nd.

I couldn’t believe that they had last minute appointments available as I had heard that they are usually busy.

So, I woke up early that morning, headed to town and went to my appointment. I arrived early and they saw to me straight away. I was the only one in the salon which was great because I get nervous when I’m in busy places.

I explained to the hairdresser exactly what I wanted and she understood me straight away.

I was so happy with my cut. Now, it’s all even and I even have a little side fringe which hides my huge forehead.

Now my hair will grow out more evenly and will grow even quicker.

I asked the hairdresser how much it would cost and she said £14.50. I couldn’t believe how cheap it was. I got the perfect cut for the perfect price!

If you’re ever in Wrexham and looking for a hiarcut, then check out Hair at No4 as they are fab!

Aggretsuko First Impressions

Oh Netflix, how you create some great content!

I was looking for a new, easy to watch anime and when I found an anime with rage and cuteness in one.

What I’ve Heard

Believe it or not, I have never really heard much about Aggretsuko. I knew that it was full of rage and it was based on a workplace but that’s all I knew. I never thought that it would be my kind of show though.

Expectations

With each episode only being fifteen minutes long, I didn’t expect to gain much from watching the show. The characters are super simple yet so cute so I was super unsure of if I’d like it or not.

Thoughts while watching it

Retsuko is a red panda character from the Sanrio franchise. She’s basically an office lady who works in the accounting department. She’s often stressed out and has pent up frustration, mainly because of work. To release that stress and frustration, she secretly karaokes to heavy metal. Hence, Aggressive Retsuko (Aggretsuko).

The show is seemingly cute and funny. I really did enjoy it so far. It’s a great short watch since each episode is about 15 minutes long. However, it’s not just interesting because it’s seemingly cute and funny. The show is quite relatable. If you work in a stressful situation or maybe have too much stress in your life, you will completely be able to relate to Retsuko.

Retsuko basically works hard and is just doing her best to live. However, her bosses at work are assholes. Especially her male boss who is a literal chauvinistic pig.

I actually really enjoyed the show after the first episode. Not just because it’s cute, funny, and that it brings societal issues and pressures to light. I am looking forward to watching the rest of the series and having series two come out this year.

Have you watched Aggretsuko? If you have, what did you think of it?

Glitter Force First Impressions And Review

A couple of days ago, I was browsing the anime section of Netflix when I discovered that Glitter Force was on there. I love magical girls so I thought that I would give it a go. Glitter Force is the ninth instalment of the Pretty Cure franchise. Unfortunately, it is dubbed on Netflix and I prefer a Japanese anime with subtitles but I decided to try it anyway.

What I’ve Heard

I’ve heard of Pretty Cure before and knew a little about it but I hadn’t watched many episodes. Pretty Cure seems to be very popular in Japan as most magical girl anime shows tend to be. I had no idea that Glitter Force was on Netflix though so I was pretty happy when I stumbled upon it by accident.

Expectations

Based off the the adorable imagary from the anime, I thought that it would be a magical girl anime that is similar to Sailor Moon. The girls all wear a different color, suggesting that they all have abilities dealing with different elements. I expected that the anime would greatly revolve around the themes of love and friendship.

Thoughts while watching it

As soon as the episode started, I noticed that they had jumped straight into the plot by introducing all the magical girls in a dream of the protagonist. She often has dreams of being a magical girl, fighting crime and is often dreaming of fairytales. Emily, who is the protagonist, compared a lot of her life to fairytales.

We follow Emily to her first day of school and I honestly thought that she was adorable. She may have had an over optimistic view of the world but I think that’s a good trait to have anyway. A lot of the time, protagonists that like fairytales can be a little daydreamy or obsessive about fantasy but I didn’t find that with Emily. The producers and writers definitely didn’t over do it like in usual shows. I was in love with Emily as a character straight away!

I am a twenty-two year old so I expect that the anime was aimed for younger people. I realised this a few minutes in. All the characters seemed to be younger and have higher voices than myself. I wish I watched this show while I was growing up as I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more than but it was definitely still enjoyable as an adult.

Emily has to introduce herself to the class but her anxiety makes her struggle to get the words out and she forgets what she wanted to say, so a very loud girl named Kelsey takes over and introduces Emily to the class. Then, some other female classmates speak up and compliment Emily. These students then introduce themselves in front of the class to Kelsey and Emily and Emily realizes that these girls were the other magical girls in her dream. I found this part funny but also a little awkward. In reality, no new student would have to introduce themselves nor would another student be allowed to go to the front of the class to shout about the new student. Maybe I just went to a really strict school but in my school, we had to raise our hands before we could speak.

After Emily’s introduction, Emily stumbles upon a fantasy land in the library. While in the fantasy land, Emily learns that a group of girls were prophesied to to defeat the evil Emperor Nogo, who wishes to take all happy endings from the world.

After she leaves the library, Emily heads home but notices a wolf in the sky named Ulric who is sucking all the hopes, dreams and happy ending from the civilians. Emily then transforms into a magical girl and fights Ulric. This was my favourite part as I like watching a magical girl do her stuff!
