Review: Grill Chef by Landmann Gas Barbecue from Asda

My new barbecue arrived last week. The website did say that assembly would be required, but when I opened the box containing our new gas barbecue the other day I was not quite prepared for what I saw. Lots (and lots) of little bits – gas burners, hoses, igniters, grill trays, legs, wheels, uprights, a regulator,

Review: RhinoShield Protection for Your Phone

You have a gorgeous new phone with a perfect crystal clear screen. The last thing you want is any of those tiny little scratches fuzzing up your HD viewing area. But even the most careful person in the world finds it impossible to keep a screen totally scratch free. You only have to push it

Review: Wooden Watches by JORD – Earth, Soil, Land

Do you wear a time piece on your wrist? With office life being dictated very much by the clock, a watch is a necessary element of corporate uniform. For many people it is much more than that – it is a fashion accessory, a statement, a piece of art. Most watch cases and straps are

On Being a Couch Potato

As someone who likes getting out into the countryside as often as possible, you may be forgiven for assuming that I spend my evenings and weekends getting fit, going on long hikes, planning tours and keeping busy. Erm. While I am very busy a lot of the time, what with my inability to choose one

Review: Brydge+ Keyboard for iPad

My latest gadget accessory has caused a lot of interest. It’s only a keyboard for my iPad, but I’ve even heard “wow” and I’ve been asked so many times where I got it.  Brydge Keyboards, originally a Kickstarter project but now under new ownership (who have ironed out some of the new product issues), have designed a bluetooth

Race for Life and my new Brooks Trainers

On Sunday I joined with thousands of other women from the area to take part in the Lincoln Race for Life at the Showground. I’d signed up earlier in the year to take part in the 10km fundraising event to do my bit for Cancer Research UK and also to encourage myself to go out

Review: Naztech Vault Waterproof Case for iPhone

I love getting out and about, and on a normal day the weather won’t make any difference to that. Having some protection for my iPhone, which never leaves my side, when it’s raining is an absolute must. Knowing I always get rained on when I go away on my motorbike (it’s a given), and loving to

Review: Readly

Subscription services are definitely one of the biggest things right now. Think Spotify and Netflix – all the music and television box sets you could possibly want in one place, available whenever and wherever you want thanks to your smartphone or tablet. And now we have Readly – the newest subscription service – offering access to over 400 weekly and

These are Dad’s Sweets – Personalised Kilner Jar from My 1st Years

It might be a month away (15th June, if you were wondering), but I’ve already started thinking about father’s day. With our big trip coming up and a number of birthdays and other celebrations being around that time, I want to make sure I’ve got everything organised so there is no last minute panic (or

Review: Watchbot 3.0 Security Web Cam

I’ve always joked with friends on Twitter that I’d love to be able to spy on my bunnies when I’m out to see what they get up to. I think, like many pet owners, I dream that they might have a double life like they do in cartoons. You know what I mean, right?! A

Review: Delikatessen iPhone Cover from Tucano

I have tried out a fair few iPhone cases over the last couple of years and I have to say I think this new one I’ve been sent to review is one of my favourites. It is the Delikatessen from Tucano, and it has something I have never seen in gadget cases before – texture.

Review: Nokia Lumia 1320

Following my review of the Nokia Lumia 925 I was given an opportunity to try out another one of Nokia’s smartphone offerings – the Lumia 1320. I was loaned a bright yellow one to try out for a couple of weeks. As all my reviews here on Splodz Blogz are based on my own personal

Review: iPhone 5 Telescope Camera Lens

I love the convenience of my iPhone for taking photos. I love how I can hold it in my hand and grab a snap at any given moment. The quality isn’t bad either – fairly decent clarity and file size meaning I’ve been able to take part in a couple of photography exhibitions showing pictures

Review: TeaVivre Black Teas

There is simply nothing nicer than sitting down in your own living room, putting your feet up, and sipping your way through a pot of freshly brewed tea.  TeaVivre is a group of tea lovers from China, Canada and France, who all share a passion for drinking great tea and appreciate the healthy life style it

Review: Airwick Colours of Nature Reed Diffuser

Air fresheners have taken on a much more “designer” look over the last couple of years. Sprays have turned into plug-ins have turned into wooden-effect puffs of scent. This new Airwick product is a reed diffuser with balls of strong fragrance to fill your room with a vibrant scent, and I have been sent one
