Apollo 50

                    "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."

Hey Everyone, 

Welcome back to the blog

This week marks a very special part of Space history. 

July 20th 1969 

The historic day man first walked on the moon and Neil Armstrong spoke the historic line that has become one history's most remembered quotes. 

In the last couple of weeks I've managed to watch a few of the documentaries that have been showing here in the UK and also catch the Apollo 11 film here in the cinema. 

Everyone knows the story of the Moon Landing but I have to recommend 2 things for you to watch to be captivated by this story again. 

8 Days to the Moon, 
Currently on BBC I-player 
The programme shows the moon landing - with original footage and voice recordings from the start of the show you are taken in for the ride. The footage is brilliant put together and looks incredible on screen. It's something I really recommend for everyone to watch so make sure you add this to your watch list whilst it is available to watch.

Apollo 11
Next up is the actual Apollo 11 film that has been showing in cinemas over the last few weeks. Whilst the idea of the film is very similar to the 8 Days on the Moon it shows more of the story of what took place in Mission Control. The footage from Space is stunning in this film and well worth catching on the big screen if you can. Its one that will also be worth an add for anyone's blu-ray collection. 

Have you seen anything good about the Moon landing that you recommend watching, let me know below and also if you have seen the the show or film as well. 

Have a great weekend

Taking in the view

Taking in the View 

Hey Everyone,

Welcome back to the blog

So it's officially summer, the last few weeks in London especially have been lovely. I'll hold my hands up n say give me a warm day and a clear sky and i'll be out doors enjoying it.

Living in London I know from experience it's very easy to put your head down and get to where you need to be but sometimes if you stop to take in the view it can be pretty amazing.

London is full of some amazing history and places to visit but I am not ashamed to say I am that person who will stop and grab a picture of a sunset or a view. The sky really fascinates me as it is always different but with the view of different parts of London it makes it something else. 

Do you have places or views you like to visit? 

Drop a comment below and lets share some favourites for everyone to visit

Have a great weekend

Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4

Hey Everyone 

Welcome back to the blog and today it’s a Disney’s Pixar theme talking about all things Toy Story 4.

Having just come home from watching the new film I have to say I’m so impressed In so many ways. 

It was so well done from the start and you can see if you’ve been watching since the start how well Pixar has come in design it looked amazing.

I’ll hold my hands up and admit I wasn’t completely on board with another film in the franchise as I thought after the 3rd film they’d wrapped the story up well and it had come full circle. From the opening part of the film you were honestly taken straight back to your childhood and back with characters the majority of us have grown up with. 

There are a lot of things in the film so many can relate to from all different parts of your life from Toys and possessions moving on in your life in different ways.

The story picks up with Bonnie and what has happened since the toys have been living with her and things she is being introduced with starting at school.

Disney have done this brilliantly with bringing back characters we all know and love to introducing new characters including the lovable Forky for the new generation of fans. 

Let me know below if you’ve seen the film and what your thoughts were and which of the new characters you liked.

Have a great rest of the week

Backstreet Boys DNA Tour o2 arena London

Backstreet Boys DNA tour - London o2 arena

June 17th 2019

Hey Everyone 

Welcome back to the blog.

For today’s blog it’s all about last nights Backstreet Boys show at the o2 arena In London.

Now the European leg of the tour has been running for the last few weeks and I’ve seen a few pictures and videos but up until last night I’d managed to stay away from a lot of spoilers but what a show it was. 

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve seen the band live but this show was really something else. 2 hours of an amazing back catalogue and 26! Yes 26 years of memories live on stage. 

There’s so many memories I can say come from this band from music to shows but also to friendship. I have so many friends I’ve met along the way.

On every tour the Backstreet Boys come back with a different show. I think it’s true you don’t pay to see a concert you pay to a show and they never disappoint. Let me know below if you’ve seen the tour, what your favourite part was and if you have plans to see the show soon

Have a great week

Playing tourist in your own city vs getting out of town

Hey Everyone, 

Welcome back to the blog 

For today's blog lets talk travel. 

I live in London, there is so many different things to do and places to visit here which makes it usually always busy. I have found some amazing places that I love that are away from the normal places like to visit. 

London itself has so much history I find it really interesting just going on long walks especially down the River Thames. There are so many old and new buildings each with their own story to tell. Another way I love to use for exploring the city is on the river boats. You really do see some amazing views but also discover new places to visit that you wouldn't think of straight away to go to. 

There's so many things also around the country that are within reach to do, a few weeks ago whilst on a visit to Portsmouth to see a show I was lucky enough to have sometime the day after to just walk along the beach and have lunch in the sun and see some of the things that is on offer. It's always worth just grabbing a map or checking google maps to see whats near by when ever you have some spare time. I've often found the best places when I've not even been looking and this just a personal opinion but sometimes they can be more enjoyable than things that are advertised everywhere. 

On the flip side of this, from being in the city do you ever look to just escaping for a few days or even just for the day. The majority of journey's timed right give you a great amount of time even on a day trip to go and explore somewhere else in the UK. With the journey times up to Liverpool and Manchester for example just under two hours now it's very easy to grab some advance tickets and explore. 

Let me know below if you prefer planned holidays or out of the blue trips and where you like to visit.

SanDisk mobile storage

Hey Everyone 

So tonight’s blog is sponsored by Sandisk and I’m very excited to tell you about their new storage idea which is a game changer for transferring data off phones and iPads to computers and laptops. 

How many times have you been in the situation where you have items you want to back up or transfer to others and don’t have a cable to hand?

This is just a personal opinion but I am not a fan of backing things up to the cloud. I’ve never fully trusted it but with these new memory sticks you have a range of different storage options for photos, music and files to transfer between devices. 

The one featured is 32gb which is so much extra space, more on these you can find them over on Amazon.
Once you’ve downloaded the Sandisk ixpand flash drive and set it up you are all good to go with the extra storage space. 

Let me know below if you’ve tried these or would look to getting one to try.

Have a great weekend 

Love Holly
