I first ran this review back in November 2015, but as I am still using the Iris every single day and we have since added the Active 250 to our collection, I felt it was time to refresh it a little. Before I get into the joys of the Iris 500 I thought I’d share a little project Lumie are working on with Leeds University. Continue reading Lumie Iris 500 Bodyclock

Don’t be put off the small size of The Adventure Suit. It is the biggest amount of fun you can find it such a small space.
The Adventure Suit is the first mini interactive book from augmented reality company Zappar. It’s a great way to combine reading with technology and game play. It could help get kids more excited about reading or just provide a new way to play.
However, you choose to use it you won’t be disappointed. You really, really won’t. Continue reading Win a Mini Interactive Book from Zappar
A couple of weekends ago we took a little trip to London with L. We had been invited to a Parenting & Kids Showcase with PlayStation.
For L it was a really exciting day, he got to go on the Tube, hang out with Mummy & Daddy, as well as getting to play a lot of games! He had a fab time.
I’m not a massive gamer, in fact I barely touch games at all. Husb loves it be we are always short on time, so his console gets a bit neglected and quite honestly it’s not something we’ve really done with L at all yet. Continue reading Kids & Parents Gaming Tips from PlayStation
Not that long ago I reviewed the GTech AirRam K9. I loved it. It has changed my cleaning life. I was way more excited about this vacuum cleaner than any sane person should be. Then I was invited to the launch of the GTech AirRam Mk2.
I’ll admit, I was on the fence about going. I didn’t know what they could do to make it any better and I didn’t want to trek all the way to London to find they had made 2 grams lighter, changed the colour or made the battery last an extra 30 seconds. But I was free that day and I love a day out in London, so off I went.
Can you remember a little while back I had a fabulous trip to Bavaria with BenQ to check out there latest projector. The GS1. It’s small, easy to use and designed for outdoor use. Perfect for camping and caravanning.
You may also know that I booked my first ever outdoor cinema trip this year and it was a disaster. With storms, rain and a deflating screen.
Well I never should have bothered with the outdoor cinema trip because now I’ve got my very own BenQ GS1 and I can have my cinema experience whenever I want. Inside. Outside. Pretty much any time of the day too. In my jammies, with wine, food and without having to queue to have a wee.
I’ve been using a Varta Powerpack for nearly a year now. I’m obsessed with it. It’s my lifeline and it travels everywhere with me. Husb has always been envious of my constant power source. So he was really pleased to get to check out the Varta Portable Powerpack 2600. Continue reading Fully Charged with Varta
So this week L and I took a little shopping trip to the newly rebranded TOFS store in Harleston. Because yes The Original Factory Shop, has rebranded!
I know it can feel like we get a bit of a raw deal when it comes to Summer in the UK. Heavy rain one week followed by a week of heat almost unheard of. Then before you know it there’s a definite chill to the air morning and evening and the sense that Autumn is knocking on the door.
We’ve gone through a bit of a cleaning breakthrough here in the Any Way To Stay At Home household. With the help of a list and some fab time saving products I’m feeling pretty smug in my domesticated-ness. So over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some of my tips with you, this week it the Gtech AirRam K9.
We now follow a weekly cleaning schedule and on that schedule is a little slot everyday for a quick vacuum. This is all very well and good if it was indeed a quick job, but by the time you’ve got it plugged in and unwound the cable, dragged the thing around the house, wound the cable back up and put it away it’s easily 25 minutes of your life gone.
