5 Reasons To Love iPhones

If you own an iPhone you probably know the awesome things you can do on your iPhone and the thousands of cool apps you can get with one single click. I've been using an iPhone since the very first iPhone ever made (now I have the iPhone 4) and let me tell you, there are a lot of awesome and useful things you can do with an iPhone!

At the end of this post, there's a beautiful giveaway and prize waiting for you!

1. iMessage- text for free!
One of the awesome features an iPhone has is iMessage. Now you can text and send photos to your friends for free. Of course, data usage might apply according to your mobile operator. iMessage is available on all devices supporting the latest iOS.

2. Organization.
iPhones has an organized menu where you can see all of your apps in a clear way. Unlike most smartphones such as Samsung mobile phones is hard to find anything as well as the space in each tab is smaller than in an iPhone.
3. iPhones are easy to use.
iPhones might not give you a lot of options to customize your phone, but it is way easier to use than any other smartphone. When you will be setting up your phone, options are easy to turn on and off and change them. In the other hand, smartphones such as Samsung mobile phones have tons of stuff to configure and it can get a bit messy at times. Besides, we like simplicity!

4. Captions perfect shots.
Whether you're using an iPhone 3, 4 or 5 the camera is just so good you won't be able to resist to take a picture! iPhones were designed to make you smile in any way and with its beautiful camera you will be able to save beautiful memories for a life time.

5. iCloud.
No matter where you are on which device you're using because iCloud has your back! Save a game and continue in a different device, take a picture and it will show up on all devices you have. It's that awesome! Need more space? Download Box or Dropbox or buy extra space for a small rate.

As Christmas is getting closer everyday, I have prepared for you a little giveaway. The winner will get a 25 PLN Empik Gift Card (for use at a local Empik store and online. Only for readers in Poland!). Buy a small gift and add some detail to your Christmas gifts for your friends and family. It's time to share, like and comment!

10 Things To Love About Winter & December

It's winter! We have been seeing a lot of blog posts, beautiful photos and tons of status updates about December and I am sure I am not the only person blogging about this season. It's time to warm up and get cozy in our cute sweaters, take hot drinks and cuddle, cuddle and cuddle! 7 days ago November said good bye but I am pretty sure December is a good months, a really good one. Besides, Christmas and New Year's Eve are two of the best moments these holidays! Let's celebrate these holidays with joy, peace and with friends and family. Here are 10 things to love about this season and December:

Hot chocolate
Hot chocolate is a must! You'd miss the delicious taste if you would actually dislike chocolate. Besides a good taste, chocolate warms you up as well. Make sure to grab some cookies too!

Ice skating
Ice skating is one of my favorite outdoor activities I love to do during winter. It's fun and relaxing just watch out what speed you're skating at unless you're a professional skater. You would definitely not want to fall down, trust me. Take your partner, friends or family and enjoy a beautiful day/ night out.

Cozy sweaters!
There is no more comfortable clothing to keep yourself warm than sweaters! Buy the right kind of sweater (of the appropriate textile type for the season) and you should be warm enough to walk around at home without even maybe turning your heater on. I love the big, cozy sweaters made out of cotton, they are terribly comfortable! 

As every year, this year you will be seeing tons of beautiful fireworks on the last and first days of the year. It doesn't matter whether you live in the countryside or in the city because you will for sure find them everywhere! What are your favorite firework colors? Mines are blue, red and yellow.

The Christmas Spirit
This month is all about joy, happiness, meaningful gifts and love. Do you agree? Christmas is an important event to celebrate every year as we learn to share, love and accept each other. You gotta have that Christmas spirit!

Cuddling is another beautiful reason to love winter. I am sure this is the best way to warm up each other and trust me, you don't need a partner to do that, because your friends and family will want hugs too!

New Year's Eve
This event is the best time of a year! Don't celebrate the end of the year and the start of a new one alone. Go out, meet with your friends and family and have fun! New Year's Eve is the time when we say good bye to our past mistakes, bad moments and memories and we welcome a new year full of joy, happiness, love and we start thinking about new goals and things to look forward to.

Snow fights
Snow fights are so fun! Cover up fully unless you want snow getting into your face! What's your best moment snow fighting and who do you fight against with?

Huge sales 
On December sales are huge! It's your time to purchase what you always wanted now that your favorite shops have tons of stuff for sale. Check them out before you miss the huge sale! This month we will be  finding ourselves buying gifts, party outfits, and lots of champagne bottles to celebrate the end of the year.

We are about to say good bye to 2012 and there will be for sure tons of farewell parties. Put on your best party outfit and brag about that cute dress you've been waiting to show off! Let's get those parties started!

After all, you might hate cold nights and covering yourself up with tons of clothing layers, but winter has its good side, doesn't it? What is your favorite thing to do during these upcoming cold days?
