Lazy Sundays // Kindle Fire

Since I've started my job, I really appreciate being a little bit lazy in the mornings of the weekend. By that, I simply mean keeping my alarm off, waking up at 8am instead of 5.30am, and being able to appreciate snuggling in bed for a while before having to go anywhere. And since I picked this Kindle Fire up from Argos, my mornings have been a lot more cosy. I always seem to wake up before Dan, and I'd wake him up if I pulled my laptop out whilst keeping myself toasty under the covers, but this tablet is entirely touch screen and quiet. Basically, I can aimlessly browse Pinterest whilst snoozing - Probably what I love the Kindle for the most. 

I don't just use it in the mornings though, and whilst its definitely no substitute for my laptop, its certainly handbag friendly. I've tucked this in to my bag to take over to my friends to share Pinterest musings as she moves into her new house, and I've kept my mum up to date with Dans recent Photography work. She wants one herself now. And although I've clung onto real paper books for so long, I've caved and downloaded a Dean Koontz number to read on the commute to work when its my friends turn to drive.  And honestly? Its ideal really, I hate to admit. The screen is adjustable and non-reflective, and its quite light to hold too. 

There are a few annoying features though, like the adverts on the lock screen, which I really think cheapen it, and the USB charger - If you want a plug, you have to pay extra, which means I can't actually charge it anywhere other than home at the minute, so if I want to take it on holiday (who wouldn't), I'll need to buy one. Clever Kindle people. Despite that though, its a great value tablet, and does everything I want it to; eBay, Pinterest, Facebook, Blogger, Twitter, BBC iPlayer, has a nice, adjustable screen, decent speakers, and is light and easy to carry. I've finished mine off with a nice protective case from Tesco, which folds perfectly to allow me to watch lots of Vlogs hands free too - Perfect!


Have you got something like this?

  8. I absolutely love my Kindle :) I buy too many books so it makes it easier to keep track of them (and less storage!) xx

  10. I love how you took these photos, making it all seem warm and cosy with the soft lighting! Really amazing!
    I have a tablet I do the same on! Always check it before getting out of bed when I have time! So easy to use and don't have to sit up properly or anything! :)
