Yes, that’s right. I am officially BACK. For those of you who may not have noticed, I haven’t really managed to do any proper blogging in a while, or videos for that matter. This was because my ever so broken and ropey (but trusty and long lived – to some extent) Dell laptop, finally decided enough was enough. Once I started introducing it to DSLR images and HD video, it refused to co-operate, but tried it’s damned hardest to soldier on through, until the day it turned off, and never turned back on again. Poor Dell (note to self – never buy another Dell, fell to absolute pieces towards the end).

I knew for a while, that once my laptop was dead and buried, I would convert to a Mac. I always hear so many good things about them, and know an awful lot of people who use them and absolutely love them. As a fair few people have said to me “Once you go Mac, you never go back”. So today, after trying to rally up the last of the “new laptop” funds, I popped my MacBook cherry. I’m still getting to grips with it all, but I’m absolutely loving it so far. Expect to be reading and seeing a lot more of me here on my blog and on my YouTube from now on :)

My laptop is going the same way, don't have the funds for a new one so am hoping it will last a while longer. Next I'd love one of those small ones that you can shove in your handbag :)

  84. Glad you're back :) x

  85. Welcome back. Would you do an overview of how your finding the MAC. I've always had Windows but like you have heard people rave about MACs but others saying they are trouble. Your newly converted thoughts would be helpful!

  86. Soph.

    Glad to see you back! :) Definitely looking forward to reading more posts! My laptop is about to die as well and I am considering a Mac too. x

  87. WOO HOO! I'm excited :D

  88. I also really want a Mac but funds/not-broken lappy do not allow for it yet! Hope you enjoy yours, have heard many good things :) xo

  89. I love Mac! I'm very happy with mine! And yes, it's true…I would never go back to another computer.

    Love katrien

  93. Mayumi

    Glad you're back to blogging, I look forward to your posts :) I'm so tempted to save up for a macbook too but I told myself I would wait until my sony vaio dies on me completely. Also love that the candles in this photo seem kind of like a ceremony ritual thingy for the passing of your dell and the birth of your mac. Anyway, love your blog :) xx

  110. Eloise

    Wins! Glad you're back! I too have gone all macbook as of January and I'm loving my little jaunt with it so far. Gone are the days of the frozen blog, no more egg timers!

  111. I'm still a bit Macphobic, but I love having a play around on my boyfriend's one (sounds dodge). But I always whine 'Where's word' or even (shamefully) 'where's the internet on this thing'. They also look oh so cool.

    Great blog by the way, glad you are back. I never say this, but it'd be great to hear back from you :) xx

  112. Yay so glad you back :) your blog and sprinkleofglitter blog make me haapy :) And im using some of your blog posts on interiors as inspiration for re-doing my room, is there any chance you could do a few more of those? Them and OOTDS are my Favourite!
    Heres my blog if you fancy a peek:

  114. Sophia

    Oh it's so so true :) "Once you go Mac, you never go back"! I'm looking forward to new posts and videos <3 Love youu!

  115. sophie!

    my dell lappy is on it's last legs at the minute, i think it needs a new battery since it doesn't charge and if unplugged switches off, but i'd rather not buy one, especially cause i bought a new charger thinking it was that but it wasn't. i loved the laptop at the time, i think my brother pushed me into choosing it though. i shall definitely get a macbook as my second laptop they're beautiful.
    i look forward to your new blog posts and youtube videos sweetie.

  116. Shen

    I got my MAC In december and love it!
    Welcome back and welcome to the mac club!

  117. Laura

    wow so many comments! crazy! i'm going to london soon, i'm from belgium, so def gonna buy some. Currently have mac ones, but pricey indeed

  118. Emilie

    I will check them out next time I go to England, or a TopShop for that matter! Really don't feel the MAC lipsticks are worth the high price, but this sounds perfect!

  119. Glad to see your back…you have a great blog xx

  120. becky.

    lovely to see you back on my bloglovin feed! missed ya! x

  121. Alice

  122. Julie

    Yayy, it's good to see that you're back! I came across your blog sometime last year & I love reading your posts & ever since I read your post about pod camping in Cornwall, I've been wanting to go so badly! I never realised you had a YouTube channel until I came across it today, I was watching your videos & noticed you complained about your laptop a lot haha. I've used macs before but I got my own macbook last October & I LOVE it, hopefully you will too! :)

  123. I'm really glad that you'r back to making blogposts and videos. I check really often in YouTube and here if there's something new :)

  124. It's so very true, once you go mac, you never go back! You completely fall in love with them and they're a lot more elegant then regular laptops :P
    Looking forward to many more posts :) xxx

  125. We have the same laptop. I must say I love my macbook! Maybe you could do a post on how you're getting on with your Macbook? A sort of review? I know its not your usual but I'll be sure to read it :)

  126. Lotta

    hey Zoe

    I was just wondering whitch Macbook pro you have? is it 13" or 15" and is it i5 or i7?
    -I am considering investing in a Macbook pro, so it would be nice to know what you use, and if you are happy with it :-) (a review would be great as well)

    Love Lotta
