Lifestyle Content // Big City Living at Home*

Living out in the country can have many benefits. There’s the beautiful clean air, the endlessly fascinating countryside views, and best of all, the wonderful peace and quiet!

However, there are certain times of the year where it can feel a little bit like you are living on a remote outpost. Sometimes it’s hard not to miss the bright lights and excitement of the big city, so this blog post is dedicated to how you can achieve the glamour of the city in your own living room!

Film sites


Whilst going to the cinema used to be an essential part of growing up, the rising admission prices and grossly inflated costs of buying a bag of popcorn have made it into a fairly exorbitant event.

Thankfully the digital revolution means that we can now all enjoy the cinema experience from the comfort of our own homes. There’s a range of great online services like Netflix that offer hundreds of films and TV series online in a way that is very user-friendly, and relatively cheap too.

So for an authentic movie evening, just fire up your widescreen television, get a bag of supermarket popcorn, and indulge yourself in the latest Hollywood blockbuster.

Gaming sites


As a child, computer games used to have a fairly limited audience appeal. They often seemed to be aimed at boys in bedrooms, but thankfully things have changed somewhat!

Everyone can enjoy the great range of gaming options that you can get on the Nintendo Wii. This offers a strangely physical gaming experience that is great fun to do with friends. Plus if you’ve ever been attracted to the big city gym, you can now enjoy the health benefits of games like Wii Fit Plus that will allow you to get toned from the comfort of your living room.

But whilst it’s fun to work out, it’s even more fun to get a little bit decadent. So why not invite your friends over for a casino evening? Going to the casino is a great way to spend time with your girlfriends, but it can be expensive. Thankfully there are a great range of online casinos such as Betsafe. These offer a gaming environment that is fun and easy to use, and you can even win as much online as you could in a real casino – perhaps enough to take an actual big city holiday! Check out these examples of big wins at online casinos.

Getting social

One of the things that can be missed most about living in the city is how easy it is to meet up with friends. And thankfully technology has come to the rescue again.

Not only are there many social media sites like Facebook that allow you to spend hours online catching up with long-lost acquaintances, but video-chatting on apps like Skype and Facetime are another great way to stay in touch too. And what’s more is that they run off your Wi-Fi, so you won’t run up massive telephone bills!
