An alternative to a winter watching TV

There must only be a few people around who enjoy the winter as much as the summer. Although winter brings with it the excitement and fun of Christmas and New Year, the months that follow can feel like a really long stretch. It’s dark by 4pm and always cold outside, so all those hours in the evenings that you’d spend outside in the summer, you end up being cooped up indoors.

Of course, if you have hobbies like sewing and crafting, then these are the perfect times to do them, but you don’t always feel like being creative at the end of a long day. However, just sitting watching hours of TV can leave you feeling cabbage-like! But there are plenty of alternative ways to be entertained, thanks to the existence of the internet.

Most people today have a broadband connection at home and as you’ve already paid your monthly subscription for the connection, you may as well maximise what you get out of it. You can catch up with what’s happening in the world, keep up to date on Facebook, Twitter etc, but you can also just have some straightforward fun with gaming online.

Online casino gaming can be a great alternative to sitting and watching TV. And today, with competition within the gaming industry so high, the kind of welcome bonuses that are available are better than ever.

If you don’t know anything about casino games, it’s a good idea to check out where you’ll find not only the latest news on what’s happening in the online casino world, but you’ll also get reviews of the most popular sites and an at-a-glance listing of which sites offer the best bonuses and payouts. Most casino sites will match or double the initial amount that you put into a gaming account as a welcome bonus for new players, so in a way, you’ve doubled or trebled your money without even placing a bet!

Some people don’t like the idea of gambling for money and it’s true that you do always have to be self-disciplined if you’re playing for real money. But, the great thing about online casino gaming is that you can play for free, too. Many of the sites offer their games in demo mode which means you play the games as if for real money, but you’re only placing bets with virtual, valueless coins. This is great for players new to a game – you can play as many rounds as you like in demo mode to get to grips with a game like roulette, baccarat or craps. Once you’ve got the hang of it, you can always switch to real money mode when you want to.

Online gaming is something that you can dip in and out of whenever the mood takes you; it’s an easy way to make those long winter evenings a little more entertaining!



Communicate, Even When You Don’t Want To

I follow a great blog called Black Love and Marriage, ran by Ayize and Aiyana Ma’at. The couple frequently make videos tackling issues that their readers go through, answering their questions and giving them solid advice. This video talks about communication. It’s quite obvious that a relationship without proper communication is doomed. We have to remember that even when we don’t want to or don’t feel like it, we need to communicate with our spouse anyways. Check their video out and let me know your thoughts.

Are there times where you don’t feel like talking to your significant other? Do you keep to yourself or do you talk it out anyways?

Engaged TV – Episode 1: Keeping Pillow Talk in the Bedroom

After going to the Financial Blogger conference and talking to blogging friend Freddie Taylor, I decided to take a leap of faith and get into video blogging. After 20 takes of trying to be perfect, Freddie told me to just go straight through and make it a learning experience. So please let me know what you think, give me your honest opinion, and I’ll keep trying to improve every time. Also, looking forward to your comments! Also thank you Amara, The Wife, Crazy Hectic, Modern Married Chick, and Quiana!
