My 40th birthday presents and how I became an Apple user.

This is the year that I became an Apple user. What?! Who could have guessed it? I have been an Android user since the beginning. What happened?

Old age? Haha maybe.
Let me explain.

I was forced into using an iPhone 7 the past August cause my pre-previous phone, a Nexus 6P (an amazing phone) after 2 years had issues with it’s battery, so then I ended up with a borrowed Samsung S7 (also great phone) but it started to get laggy after a while. So, I got my boyfriend’s old iPhone 7. Funny thing. The iPhone 7 up to this day has not been laggy, not once. And it’s almost as old and as used as the S7.

In any case, it took me a while to get used to a new operating system and I was very angry at first. I was cursing like “wtf iphone, y u so stupid” and stuff like that. But once I have gotten used to it, that was it. I’m now sold to it.

It’s so comfortable to use and it’s true, it works flaulesly. 

I have to be honest though, it’s not the first time I have been using an Apple product. I own a 2011 Mac mini and I loved it. 


But just to be clear, I love technology from whatever direction it comes. I have an amazing Samsung tablet and a killer Asus laptop so I’m not an Apple-only user.

Ok, enough with the background story.

This year I turned 40

I say this year cause my birthday is in January.

And my boyfriend got me an Apple Watch!! Series 4! What??

The thing is that the moment I saw the package I knew instantly what it was. 

He knew I wanted it and I have watched reviews and unboxing videos on Youtube so I was familiar with the shape of the box. I mean duh 🙂 it’s obvious.

Specifically I have watched this unboxing from Jenna’s Youtube channel: 

and I can honestly tell you that I had the exact same reaction as her, when I took out the phone and I saw that it was inside a pouch!

I mean it’s the details that count. And this is a very well executed detail.

Pairing it with my iPhone 7 was a breeze. I mean I didn’t have to do anything, just click on my phone, press ok and BOOM! Paired! Smoother tech experience ever.

I told my other Spacecookie, Vaso, that she needs one of these asap!

The present to myself

And then it was my turn to buy me something cool.

I couldn’t resist any more. It has been bugging me for a while. It was been inside my head for a long time. I wanted a phone with a bigger screen and I decided I will buy me the new iPhone XR. And so I did! :O Honestly, I did not see that coming.

Bonus present! Boyfriend went to Japan for a business trip and got me – amongts others – this awesome Hello Kitty mobile phone case.

I mean it’s a real Hello Kitty case from a Hello Kitty store in Japan!

He got me more stuff which you can see on my vlog here:

So I’m updated to the max with my new gadgets and I love them so much.

I have to say, I love the XR’s big screen. It’s so comfortable to watch and do stuff, it’s a great blogging/vlogging/photography tool so I’m so happy with this purchase.

Needless to say, Vaso, the other spacecookie, can’t believe her ears and eyes with me. She has been an Apple/Mac user since forever and she knew I’m a hard core Android user and cannot grasp how I made the change, lol!

But just so that you know, this post was written on my laptop cause it’s faster to type and write stuff 😀 obviously, but some edits were made from my phone.

Well, happy birthday to me and if today is your birthday, well Happy Birthday to you as well!

Thanks for reading and see you next time 🙂
