Good morning my Dears,

Do you have many apps on your phone? Today I present you my current favorite apps:

1) Audible
Audible is the world’s largest distributor of digital audiobooks. Their range includes more than 200,000 audio books, radio plays, serials, audio magazines, foreign language titles, and more. Since I have discovered audiobooks new for me, I use this app a lot. A subscription is required, anyone who is uncertain, can start with the free trial month. After the test month you pay € 9.95 a month.

2) My Movies 2
My Movies 2 is the fastest, easiest and most impressive way you have ever kept track of your movie collection. The proud owner of an extensive DVD collection can easily lose the overview. With “My Movies 2”, a digital movie catalog, you can prevent this from happening. These carry your library either manually or scan the barcode of the DVD. Then be retrieved from an online archive data such as length, actors and the film’s release.

You can also see the newest film appearances and their trailer. The free version is limited to a maximum 50 titles and only 10 items in trailers and title release list, the upgrade costs 7,99 €. I am very proud of my growing film collection 🙂

3) Book Buddy
BookBuddy is a powerful book management application that gives you access to your entire book catalog, anywhere. Using BookBuddy is fun and easy, allowing you to quickly find any book in your library, share your favorite books, and keep track of borrowed and lent books.

This is a great application for book lovers. I use this app to catalog my home library and I just love it! Every book has a great cover and also foreign books can be managed. And by the way, this app is free!

4) Layout for Instagram
As a photographer and Instagram lovers I like to create collages with several pictures. In the high selection of collages apps it is not easy to find the right one. I have tried several apps for this use and currently I most like the layout for Instagram. You can quickly create collage, it’s easy to use and you have many design options. Another advantage: it is free. 🙂

5) Polyvore
Another free app that I have known for only a few months is Polyvore. Polyvore lets you create a look for home or fashion. Users can create a style collage that includes clothing, footwear, accessories, jewelry and anything else that blends with the collage’s theme. Polyvore lets users work with more than just clothing. Users can also add music, people, backgrounds, colors, frames and effects to create style collages. Others can explore style collages for Inspiration. A very cool app!

Top #series 2015

IMG_7354 (1)

Netflix and Amazon Prime have revolutionized my life gently. I’ve always been a serial junkie, but since there is the possibility quite legal to watch all day series, it has become my absolute favorite activity – especially in winter when it is dark out early and the sun is rare to see.

Even last year I watched a lot of series and now I want to introduce my favorite series to you. Have fun watching!

(1) Vikings

A great series with historic elements. Ideal for all fans of the Nordic culture and their myths. It focuses on the story of the Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, the first Viking trips and the subsequent military conflicts in England, several Viking customs and political infighting. The Vikings in the series are also confronted with new ideas like the Christian faith. I was excited and look forward to next season!Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more!

(2) House of Cards

Kevin Spacey is simply an amazing actor and House of Cards a captivating series that sets out the machinations of the White House. A political thriller full of intrigue and power games.  In my opinion one of the best series in recent years. I am very excited about the new season.

(3) True Detective

This series is from HBO and has impressed me more than once.  A qualitatively high series:  good story, great actors and wonderful music. Another masterpiece of HBO.

(4) Sherlock

I love this series! Rarely I saw such a precise, perceptive and so modern series like Sherlock. Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Sherlock converts this story to our modern age, with cleverness and sympathy. I want the next season – immediately!

(5) Orange is the new black

Orange Is the New Black was the first series that I watched on Netflix. It takes place in a women’s prison with many different characters and their story. Such a funny and exciting series.  Highly recommended!

(6) Narcos

21939834

The series deals with the rise of Pablo Escobar and the Colombian Medellin cartel to one of the most powerful drug cartels in the world in the 1970s and 80s. This series grabbed me immediately and I wanted to see more and more. Great characters and interesting theme. The Spanish language makes it even more authentic for me. Amazing!

(7) Jessica Jones

469735950

All Marvel fans simply need to watch this series. I just loved it! Krysten Ritter plays the eponymous lead role of Jessica Jones, a former superhero who gets by in New York as a private detective and is now overtaken by her past. Great action, strong actors and extraordinary Story. In a few days I finished watching. 🙂

So, these were my top series of the year 2015. What do you think, did I forget some?

For the future, I’m going to watch Mr. Robot, Chef’s table and Shameless. Do you have other suggestions?
