Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Review

First of all, before I steal you more time, I want to point out what you'll find in this post:

- a brief description about the device.
- the best apps in my opinion (with my unbiased thoughts, obviously, I am not being paid by anyone for making this post)
- some tips and tricks that I find interesting.

I hope you find this helpful. I am not an expert in technology or something, I am interested in writing a detailed review post because before buying this phone I only found the prototypical review (and unboxing post) with the same technical details in each case.
I won't post an unboxing post because there's plenty of them on the internet and I wanted to have the phone for at least a couple of weeks to see how does it work, what apps do I like, etc. and make a more detailed and complete review.



Description
The phone is quite big (144.8 mm x 72.1 mm) and the interesting thing is, that although it has a very good size, it doesn't get uncomfortable when it comes to typing on it, as it happens with other devices such as the "Samsung Galaxy Note(s)".
It has two cameras. The front camera is quite nice. It has a 5mpx camera to make selfies and a really funny effect to make yourself more beautiful, although if you overuse it, you end up looking like an alien. The "main" camera has 8mpx which is great! maybe the picture definition is not really different from my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy S Advance) which has a 5 Mpx camera, but it certainly catches the light and colours in a better way.
The design is quite nice, although the surface seems a very cheap plastic, but I like the fact that mine is not white or black, but dark grey.




Apps
My favourite apps are:
1. TEMPLE RUN 
I love this game! It runs amazingly in this phone. And I love that now it comes with a new scene with snow and a different "monster".

2. DITTY
With this app you can create songs based on a music template such as "hallelujah" and "jingle bells" but you write the lyrics!
3. CCLEANER
By far the app for phone cleaning that has worked the best for me. It works as great as it works on the PC. I had installed CleanMaster in my old phone but actually it made it slower than it already was.
4. MUSIC MAKER JAM
With this app you can create music. Of course, it is not as complex as professional music makers are, but if you do that as a hobby, it is ok.


5. MOOVIT 
This apps helps you to calculate the time the next bus will take to arrive (among other things).
6. ONCE 
The best period tracker in my opinion.

Tips & Tricks
By far, the best thing about this phone, in my humble opinion, is the "ultra power saving mode". I can't show you a snapshot to illustrate this feature, maybe because it consumes energy, I guess. But it limits your phone to the most basic needs you may have. It turns off the wifi, reduces the screen brightness, and it stops showing your wallpaper, among other things, so as to make the battery last longer. For example, with the saving mode, 53% could last for almost 8 days. That's such a great amount of time for a cell phone to stay alive haha.

Weekly Stuff

I don't have the habit to take a picture of everything I do, but last week I took my camera and captured some things I've been doing. I think it's a nice way to have things under control and to remember the things you do.


I have organised my baby's wardrobe, I love decluttering, I think it's a therapy for me, maybe a lot of you may feel the same...



I know I'm not the most organized person when it comes to study, but that doesn't count when you are writing down the answers in the exam, so who cares!? ahhahah



Enjoying the Spring's sunny days outside.


And the best thing comes at the end... my lady girl living her last days as an 11 months old! She will turn 1 year old next friday :3

What do you thinkg about taking pictures?

December Wishlist

It's nine days since December started and Christmas is nearer and nearer. And traditionally, we are preparing to give and receive presents, so we're all looking in the local shops to see if we find by chance the perfect gift for our beloved ones, or... the gifts we want to receive.
In my case, I will show today my wishlist for this month, in which I include my favourite items from an online store I've been loving and which is called Dresslink.

As you may know, here in South America the Christmas season is not as it is in the movies, we don't have snow. Instead, we are in summer and temperatures can be really high here (it's not the case this year, fortunately). But, although I am not wearing warm clothes, I can't help thinking about a warm sweater, a cup of coffee and Christmas movies, so I picked some garments perfect for cold weather.



1. Hooded cape poncho style
2. Geometry design printed sweater
3. Faux leather  bodycon midi pencil skirt
4. Casual round neck plaid dress

I have also picked some accesories and shoes I found at an INCREDIBLE PRICE (yes, I'm serious about this)

1. Click here to purchase these snow boots (in many colours) for $0.99!
2. Click here to get these black boots for only $5.19!
3. Click here  to get any of the Harry Potter's houses scarf! for only $4.09
4. Click here to get this cool bag only for $3.69!

I hope you have enjoyed this wishlist and I kindly invite you all to click on the items and take a closer look to these cheap and great quality products Dresslink has to offer.

Comment down below which was your favourite item from my wishlist or go to the DRESSLINK page and choose the item you liked the most!

Hope you have a lovely thursday, as I do. See you in my next post.

Landybridal: to design you better days

Dear followers and readers, 
As I love to share my favourite online shops/sites with you, I am sharing a so cool online store which cool Wedding Dresses: landybridal

As the slogan stands, "to design you better days", this website offers dresses varying in colour, size, shape, texture, style, etc. And you can tell by looking at the well-organized categories in which the dresses are divided. 

The nicest thing about landybridal is that they adapt to every lady's taste. For example, there may be those women who want their wedding to be something vintage, and they may want to dress according to the wedding's style. These ladies will go straight to this wonderful looking section of vintage lace wedding dresses. On the other hand, if you are of those who are always updated with the last trends and fashionable clothing, you may be one of those who will go straightforward to the wedding dresses 2016.

I personally don't follow trends and would love to buy a vintage dress, but as I said. It doesn't matter how unique or particular your taste might be, Landybridal has a choice for every bride.

Fascinating Ideas for your Baby's Room Decor

Hello dear followers and readers. 
I have been looking for some inspirational ideas for my little lady's room. And I found some amazing spaces which seems to be done with a lot of effort by loving parents. Some of them will let your mouth open. Especially the first one:

Take from geriscamera.com

Apart from the lovely green colour in the walls which I find pretty original (yes, I'm tired of "pink for girls and blue for boys"), you may have notice the detail in the lion: it looks real if you make a quick look at it, mostly because of the painting in the wall.. it looks like the lion comes from the wall!


Taken from furniturewell.net

I think the main reason why I liked this baby room is the fact that I LOVE WINNIE POOH. Yes, it may sound childish but it's one of my favourite characters of tv for little ones. I don't know why, maybe the colours are appealing to me. 


Taken from  http://galleryinteriorhome.com/

This room looks like a playground and nothing can be better for a child than a place that encourages him/her to play all day. I also love how good the lighting is in this bedroom.


Taken from http://www.furniturewell.net/

Sorry about the quality but I couldn't help posting this room. I love the "sky" paint on the ceiling. It's by for the most delicate of the rooms I'm sharing today.
Maybe it wouldn't be so easy to find the exact furniture and ornaments to create such a cosy and antique-looking room, but it's definitely worth it.



Taken from http://www.furniturewell.net/

Green is a lovely color! and the animals everywhere make this room look like a friendly one.

Which is your favourite room?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Spring is finally here

Yes, I know that you may be living a beautiful Autumn, but here, where I live, we are in Spring. Although in September 21st the season has changed, today was the first day in which it isn't cold and rainy. Climate is changing a lot lately.



I've been waiting a lot of time to use these comfy pants again. I bought them when I was pregnant and they fit me, but not as comfortable as they do now.


On the other hand, I've been really into studying lately. Final exams are coming and I can't wait to finish this academic year.

What have you been up to?

How to be a good mother and a successful student at the same time

Hello dear followers and readers.
It's been such a long time since my last post because I've been busier than ever. There wasn't really much time to write a blog post between uni, my baby and work.
Now, let's go to the main point:

How to be both a successful student and a good mother

It may sound a bit "impossible" or hard to achieve, at least, but I can ensure you that it is totally possible and not so hard to achieve as it seems.
As with many goals, one of the most important things you need is discipline and motivation, but I will give you some tips and tricks to keep those virtues up too!

We all know that being a mother involves a lot of responsibility, and so does to be a student. But there are many things you can do to make the journey less stressful and more enjoyable: 

  • Use the time in which your baby or toddler sleeps.
    It sounds a pretty obvious but this tip involves more than just "the baby is sleeping, let's do something I can't do while he/she is awake".
    Determine which things you can do with little or no concentration. In my case I don't need silence to clean, check my e-mail, tidy my bedroom or even reading some kinds of things I have to read. So, I use the time in which my baby is awake and playing or making those loud noises to do those activities that don't need me to be fully focused.
    On the other hand, I take advantage of her sleeping time to read complex texts, study and sometimes, when I need it, to take a nap.

Pssst!! You'll probably find yourself wishing to spend time with your little one once you have been studying an hour or so. (that happens to me!) 
  • Study with your kid(s). 
    Yes, it doesn't seem to be something possible, but if you have to read something to study, you can read it aloud and your baby will maybe be attracted to hear you speaking. I don't know how much would it last, but it is true that when you hear and think about what you say, you can remember it in a better way.
  • Find someone who can take care of your little one
    You should take your child to the nursery or you can find someone (maybe her/his father or grandparents) who is happy with the idea of minding him/her regularly. This is essential because you will eventually need to attend classes.
  • Try to have an income which doesn't demands you much time. 
    There are several scholarships for students and several other for students that have children. I got both of them. It's not much money but thanks to those little incomes, I don't have to work.
    I also give english/spanish lessons in my house (1 hour a day or something) and therefore, I  have a little more money to spend in not-so-necessary stuff. 
  • When it is time to go to bed, go to bed together. 
    You will need to be rested and in a good mood to study and/or attend classes. If your baby doesn't sleep through the night, don't worry, you won't be sleep deprived forever. 
  • Stay motivated.Think about how happy will you be once you finished your career or whatever you are studying. Every goal has a reward.
These are some things I do to achieve my goal. I hope you've found it interesting and useful, if you feel you can add another piece of advice, just write it down in the comments and I will love to read it.

I have nothing to complain about the service, the speed of delivery or the quality of the clothing itself. I was surprised when I found out that the sweater was exactly as it is shown in their webpage:
