Review: Olixar Babyboom Speaker for your Mobile

Did you get some new music for Christmas? Or a new mobile phone, perhaps? If you use your iPod, phone or other Bluetooth enabled music player you may want to consider one of the many portable speakers now on the market. Mobile Fun sent me the new Olixar Babyboom Bluetooth Mini Speaker to try out. This small and neat

Review: Lumia 735 – The “Selfie” Phone

The selfie is arguably one of the biggest photography trends of 2014 – and I suspect it will get even bigger in 2015.They are everywhere. You might not take them yourself (or admit to it), but I guarantee your family and friends do – social media is crammed full of “look at me” snaps, in all

Smoothies for Breakfast: Recipe Ideas Wanted

I’ve had my Breville Blend-Active for a little while now, a couple of months perhaps, and I love it. I bought it after seeing lots of the people I follow on twitter and instagram using them and I was a bit jealous of how healthy they were being. It cost me £20 from Asda (also

Review: Krusell Malmo Flip Cover for iPad Air2

I am a very lucky girl indeed. LincsGeek treated me to a new iPad Air 2 for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. It’s fabulous, I love it – it is definitely better than my old iPad 2 and it has already become my new tech best friend. But you all know what comes

The North Face Thermoball gets a Makeover

It is fair to say that the black Thermoball hooded jacket I received from The North Face just about a year ago has become my most worn coat in the cold weather. I love it – it fits well, is warm, looks great, and is useful as both outerwear and a layer. I thought I

OnePiece Hoodies for Post-Outdoors Relaxation

Anyone who enjoys playing in the great outdoors knows there is nothing like the feeling you get when you head back inside after the exertions for a well-earned rest. Step inside after a couple of hours in the autumn cold and damp, you’ve got a slightly runny nose, rosy red cheeks, are ready for a

Review: Merrell Verterra Mid Sport GTX

Comfort and support are the two most important features of any footwear you wish to wear for walking. Everything else, the way the shoe looks and especially the colour, is secondary. But it is rather wonderful when you receive a brand new shoe that offers comfort and support as well as fantastic looks. Meet the new-for-this-season Merrell Verterra

Learning to Snowboard with Snozone

Learning to snowboard has been on my list for quite a few years now. Earlier in the year I put it on my list of Goals and Challenges for 2014 to try and make certain that I got around to it after a failed attempt when on my last ski holiday (the “learn to snowboard”

Lifedge. Go do.

It was at about mile eight or nine of the Spires and Steeples Challenge yesterday that I thought to myself: “If only I had a Lifedge phone case this time last year, I’d have lots more proof of the terrible conditions that lead me to abandon my hike half way through.” At that moment I realised that thanks

Review: Osprey Tempest 20 Pack

I’ve been looking for a new pack for a while. My list of requirements has not been small – I want something that is more technical than fashion (I’ve been using an old fashion back pack for a long time now that’s done its job incredibly but has not had the technical spec to satisfy

Review: Gousto #2

I tried Gousto a while ago when the recipe box delivery service was first introduced, and liked it. Having made some changes to their offering in the last few weeks I was given the opportuity to try the company out again. If you follow me on twitter or facebook then you’ll have already seen some

Testing out Quark Cooking Sauces

Life has got the better of me recently. I’ve been super busy every day for a good few weeks with not enough time for meal planning and cooking properly. This makes me very susceptible to ideas from companies like the Lake District Dairy Co., who offer products that turn what could have been an orange food night due
