It's About Time!

After two years of being bound to a contract that I'm sure was way overpriced for what I had (BlackBerry Bold - rubbish, don't ever bother with it), I've stepped over to the dark side and got myself an iPhone! It's only been a few days but I have to say that I'm already addicted. I can't tell you how much Plants vs Zombies 2 I've been playing (can't stop won't stop)! Anyway, besides the obvious app bombardment I really love this phone. I've never had an iPhone before so this was a pretty big deal for me.

As you can see, I bought the 16GB White iPhone 5 from my local O2 Store. They had a brilliant offer that was an in-store exclusive so I would always recommend having a shop around before deciding and parting with your precious pennies. Originally I was going to get the £42 a month two-year contract, but the offer in-store was £20 up front and then £32 per month for two years. That's a difference of £10 per month, which doesn't seem like a huge amount but I promise you that it's much healthier on the bank balance - especially when there are other things you want to buy! I get 600 minutes - great for me as I'd much rather text; unlimited texts; and 750mb data per month - more than plenty for me. I didn't get the latest iPhone 5S or 5C because I didn't think it was worth 60-odd quid a month most tariffs were offering, and as I don't know much about phones I don't need all the techy stuff that goes with the newer ones. I'm more than happy with the 5!

Oh and, of course, with an iPhone comes the ease of Instagram, which I now have an account for. It would be lovely if you could follow me on there too as I'm pretty much using it every day! I'll also be doing a monthly Instagram update on here so you guys can see what I've been up to recently. I hope that it will give you all a better idea of my life and know that I don't just obsess over beauty products from time to time!

If you have Instagram, let me know!


  1. I've had a blackberry forever, and I'm definitely going to make the switch to the iphone !
