#Bossypants by #TinaFey mini review

Recently having got into 30 Rock and inhaling almost all 7 seasons in about a fortnight, I was intrigued by Tina Fey's book after being pointed to it by my recommendations on Amazon.  I love her sarcastic yet friendly writing style, her insights on life including motherhood and her work as a comedian, writer and producer, and her views on politics and feminism. I found it to be less 'laugh out loud' than Any Poehler's Yes Girl, but I was always smiling, feeling like I was catching up with an old friend. 
She shows genuine gratitude towards the chances she's received in life and toward the people that have helped her become the success that she is, it was a pleasure to read from beginning to end. Highly recommended for fans of funny, intelligent writing or anyone that knows of anything Fey has done.

#Jawbone Up Fitness Tracker - Review

Up, up and away...?

As anyone who has stumbled across my blog will know, I recently got very into maintaining a healthy lifestyle, dieting, eating the right things and doing more exercise, mostly in the form of walking more and a weight regimen.

Well, in this sudden uprising of fitness freaks comes with it a new wave of technology - fitness trackers or bands. They work by sitting quietly on your wrist and monitoring different things about your lifestyle. The version I have, the Up2 sleep and activity tracker, retails on Amazon for £69.95 (at time of writing), and was gifted to me for review purposes by a friend who happens to work for Jawbone. And whilst it's not perfect, for the money I think it's an excellent investment for anybody looking to add a technological twist to their fitness frenzy.

I got very OCD during my diet, becoming an extreme calorie and step counter, so what I didn't want was to get stuck in a rut again and return to these compulsions. Whilst the Up app…
