Blogging Resources on iPad Pro | Organisation

When it comes to blogging you’ve got to stay organised. I know I do, I don’t know where I would be without organisation tools. I would have scraps of paper with all my blog post ideas on, random post-it notes littered all over my desk with things to remember to do and it would just be a hot mess. Today’s post is can help you get organised too, and even if you already feel like you are these apps may just help you feel it even more. Things 3 is a to-do app which has helped me organise...

Blogging Resources on iPad Pro | Writing

This post is the first in my blogging resources on an iPad Pro series, you dno’t actually need an iPad to use most of them but if you do then these posts may give you some ideas on how you can use your iPad for blogging if you don’t already. A lot of the resources I’m going to be talking about are things you can do on a PC too so don’t worry if iPadOS or macOS is not your operating system of choice. Drafts is a note/writing app that I use for taking down ideas really fast either by...

Apple AirPods Pro | Review

I originally had the 2nd Generation AirPods, only for around 2 weeks but I had them all the same. They were really good quality and I really liked them but I quickly realised that they weren’t going to be completely suitable for what I wanted to use them for. I like to wear headphones and listen to podcasts when I go on a walk and whilst I had zero issues with the sound quality, what bothered me a lot was that I had to have the volume up so loud to be able to hear it as...

Apple Smart Keyboard | My Thoughts

I’ve spoken about my love for my iPad Pro quite a bit on charlotterosewrites. I’m a long time Apple fan and I use my iPad all the time. I’m using it right now to write this post and I use it a lot for blogging in general as well as reading, watching YouTube videos and general internet use. I’ve had two different wireless keyboards for my iPad, one that is standalone that I’ve had for about 7 years. It still works fine but for me, a keyboard for my iPad needed to be...

Running & Mental Health

I’ve been running for a while now and whilst I love the physical fitness benefits it provides: feeling fitter, being able to hit a new PR and running longer distances, something that I have found it has a profound impact on is my mental health. Getting outside and running always makes me feel really good. To be fair, going on a long walk does too but not in the same way that running does. Running gives me such a boost. I love being outside in the fresh air and I don’t even mind if...

Switching from Spotify to Apple Music

I’ve been a Spotify user for years and whilst I’ve never had a problem with it, becoming so deep within the Apple ecosystem made me consider why I wasn’t using Apple Music. I guess I hadn’t really thought about it before, because I’d just always had Spotify and hasn’t ever thought about what an alternative had to offer me but after coming across a couple of articles about Apple Music lately I started thinking about it a bit more. Eventually, I decided that as...

My 3 Favourite iPad Apps | February

Drafts – I’m actually using this app right now to write this blog post. Drafts is a great note-taking app that is available on the iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch. It allows you to take notes really quickly and categorise them as well as add tags to make them searchable. Another aspect of this app that I love is that you can use your voice to add a note and it will transcribe your recording for you, great if you have an idea you need to get down but can’t type it for whatever...

HP Sprocket 200 | Review

If you haven’t heard of a Sprocket before then let me explain a little about what it actually is. The Sprocket is a handheld printer, literally the size of your hand that prints out small polaroid style photos (the Sprocket 200 paper is 5×7.6 cm in size) using ZINK (zero-ink) paper which has a removable backing paper so that you can stick them down or you can leave the backing paper on and put them in a frame etc. There are a few different models, the original HP Sprocket, the HP...

How I Use My iPad Pro

I had an iPad mini years ago and I remember being so excited when I first got it and getting my current iPad was no different. I now have the iPad Pro 10.5 inch and the Apple Pencil. When I initially decided to invest in an iPad once more I knew I wanted one but I didn’t really know how I was going to use it. I assumed just for browsing on the sofa in the evenings instead of getting my laptop out, maybe reading and playing a few games but I didn’t buy it for a specific purpose...

Running Essentials

This post contains affiliate links marked by * I wrote a blog post last week about starting Couch to 5K and getting into running so it feels only right to do one on my running essentials. The kit that I use every run and quite frankly couldn’t be without. Before starting running I did my research and made a note of the things I saw most runners use and then hunted around for the best bargains. First up was of course a good pair of running shoes, initially I just used a cheapy pair of Asics I...
