Eating a couple of portions of oily fish per week is a well-recognised requirement of healthy diet. Oily fish provides our bodies with important fats and nutrients that keep our bones and joints working properly. When I think of oily fish I tend to gravitate towards salmon and tuna, but have recently been encouraged to
Ever struggle to decide between curry and pizza for your Saturday night takeaway? Thanks to Curry Dave you no longer have to make that difficult decision. Their new Indian flatbread pizzas offer the flavours of popular currys. Each pizza has a naan bread base with curry sauce and other toppings along with grated mozzerella. There are currently four flavours – Chicken Madras, Chicken Tikka
Designed with long distance trail runners in mind, the new GTD Jacket from The North Face is ultra-lightweight, breathable and water repellent, and comes in a few happy bright colours. I might not be a distance runner, but as with so many things like this, they are not confined to one sport or one use.
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,
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
