Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Need

So you know I love buying Christmas gifts for people, sometimes in can be tough to find the right thing though.

As I mentioned earlier, I love the idea of giving something that someone wants, something they need and then a little something to eat or drink. It keeps the gift giving under control and means the recipient gets a lovely mix of things.

I’ve already covered, eat and drink ideas for you, and compiled a gorgeous list of little luxuries people will really want, today is my final gift guide all about things people need. Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Need

Kids & Parents Gaming Tips from PlayStation

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.

Getting serious about his game

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

The New and Improved GTech

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.

Oh my word. I am so glad I went. The new GTech cleaners are so amazing. Continue reading The New and Improved GTech

Outdoor Cinema, Any Time, Any Where

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.

Fully Charged with Varta

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

Discovering Bavaria with BenQ

I have spent the last two days in Bavaria at the launch of the BenQ GS1. It has been an amazing experience. So I’m really happy that I got to attend.

Flying home

I had never been to Bavaria before, I actually had to Google it to find out where it was. My geography is atrocious. In fact I had never actually flown by myself before. So there were lots of new experiences for me. Turns out flying by myself was a breeze, it’s so much easier when you aren’t arranging everyone else.

LeapPad3 – Review

For the last few weeks L has been busy putting the LeapPad3 from LeapFrog through it’s paces.

Designed to be the perfect first tablet experience, I was concerned how L would get on with the LeapPad3. He already happily scrolls through the iPad to get to YouTube Kids and enjoys being able to choose what he watching. Of course I’m not too keen on him using our very expensive phones and tablets! He also knows exactly how to exit out of YouTube Kids and go to the main YouTube App which is completely uncensored. Continue reading LeapPad3 – Review

In Love With Light – Lumie Bodyclock Active 250

Oh yes, Spring had sprung, everything is lighter and brighter and that makes everyone happier. Daylight is clearly an important thing.

With that in mind you can understand why I love Lumie so much.

We’re big fans of Lumie in our house, I use the Desk Lamp at my workspace and my husband has been using the Iris Bodyclock which also works as an aromatherapy diffuser, so when we were sent the Active 250 to review, with it’s radio and white noise functions it made sense to me that I nabbed the other half’s Iris which I had been lusting over and he used the Active 250.
