Great features of Google Home – #bemoreathome

Ever since we were invited to Google HQ to learn about the great features of Google Home, M has been in love with it. In fact, we are all kind of in love with the smart tech we've added to our home and the ease in which we have adapted to having the extra tech in the house. Google Home is easy to hook up straight from the box and comes with everything you need to plug it in. You will need a smart phone and an email account to customise and finish…continue reading →
Lumsing – Fast Charging – Review

Lumsing – Fast Charging – Review

Bring a massive lover of mobile photography and also someone who carries our GoPro everywhere, it's become somewhat of a family joke that I always need to be near a source of power. Neither the iPhone or the GoPro can hold juice for the whole day during use. So it was really great when Lumsing sent us a Grand A1 Plus Powerbank and an Apple charging cable to review.   The Powerbank was relatively quick to charge to full and has honestly not left my side since we got it.

Clara and I always seem to be busy when our favourite shows like The Big Bang Theory or Hostages are on, so when we were offered a Youview box with on demand TV service to review, we thought it would be the perfect addition to our living room. Before the Youview box entered our lives, our TV habits involved switching between Live Digital TV that came with our TV or streaming catchup via my Xbox. At times it proved fiddly switching between devices whenever we wanted to watch something we'd missed. The Humax…continue reading →
Hive Active Heating™ – state of the art technology

Hive Active Heating™ – state of the art technology

Anyone who knows me will tell you how much I love technology and the way we can use it around the home. I'm also a great lover of my smartphone and am almost always on one app or another. So when we visited a Baby Show last year and discovered Hive Active Heating™ , innovative technology which lets you control your heating and hot water remotely from your smartphone, tablet and laptop, I was intrigued to say the least. I love anything that says it can allow me to remotely control our heating as it…continue reading →
