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

Review: Pluck

Meet Pluck. Pluck is magical. Pluck will make your kitchen life so much easier. At least that’s what it says on the packet! This strange looking kitchen gadget is an egg separator. It is incredibly simple to use – crack your egg into a bowl, position Pluck over the yolk, squeeze and then release to

Review: Dare 2B Transpose Cycling Jacket from Go Outdoors

The Dare 2b Transpose is a lightweight cycling jacket made from a waterproof and breathable material designed to keep you dry when it’s wet and comfortable when you start to warm up. I was offered one by Go Outdoors to try out on my commute to work. The jacket is made from Ared 5000 which

Review: Old El Paso Casserole Mixes

There are two categories of “easy dinners”. The first are dinners that take up to 30 minutes to prepare and cook so you are eating in no time. The other are meals that take a few minutes to prepare and then sit in the oven (or slow cooker) for a few hours while you go

Review: Maple Syrup for Breakfast

What do you eat for a breakfast treat? I am rather fond of pancakes with maple syrup… rather indulgent but oh so lovely. “Master Syrupeers” Clarks sent me a couple of bottles of their Maple Syrup to try out, telling me that it might not be as bad for me as I might believe. I

Review: A Stylus with a Split Personality

Meet the Hex-Styli, a multi functional stylus that Mobile Fun reckons is one of the best on the market. They sent me one to try out. This six-in-one stylus has a omnidirectional stylus tip for accurate on-screen interaction, integrated ballpoint pen for jotting down notes, a printed ruler on the body, a built in spirit level, and a Phillips

Review: Ice Cream in Winter

Do you eat ice cream in winter? I certainly do. Even on the coldest and most miserable days of winter I can find a use for a nice ice cream. My vanilla of choice for the freezer at home is this – Kelly’s Cornish Ice Cream. Kelly’s Vanilla sits nicely in the middle of the

Review: Evolution Chair

The leaflet that came with this product I’ve been sent to review says “thank you for joining the evolution“. What I have is the Evolution Chair; essentially a Swiss Ball exercise ball on casters designed to use as an office chair. I know people who sit on a Swiss Ball at work and I was

My Aloe Gel Experiment

About a month ago I wrote a short blog post telling you I had started drinking Forever Aloe Berry Nectar every day to see if it helped with my health – specifically my skin, digestive system and immune system. I have been told and have read lots of excellent things about this product, about how it

Review: FruitBroo Hot Drinks

Ever get fed up of drinking tea? No, me neither, but it’s always good to have an alternative! There is always one of a huge number of herbal or fruit teas to choose from, of course, but as you well know I am really not a big fan of those as they never taste like
