The world has changed so much since I was a child and now technology is everywhere. I remember when I first got a tablet computer they were very basic and slow. My first one was pretty rubbish and thankfully they have improved a lot since. It is a long time since I have owned one of the cheaper tablets as I have an iPad now and don’t often really use that. Ben loves his iPad and has never used a cheaper one however I am always conscious that one day when his iPad breaks I may need to look at a cheaper option. I think for many children the cheaper ones are a good option as they easily can break things. Lets face it too kids always have a long Christmas/Birthday list so the cheaper you can get items the better! So when I was offered the Mercury 7L Tablet by Venturer (available at Asda) I was intrigued to see how good a cheaper tablet like this would be.
I have often loved the look of paper cuts but had never bought one. I guess it is one of those things that unless you see something perfect you just don’t buy them. When the lovely guys at Twenty Fingers asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their paper cuts I was excited. I had a good look over their website and could not decide on one that was perfect until I realised that they do bespoke ones. I have often wanted one of those family rules signs for the house but never found one that is perfect for us so maybe this would be a good idea.
Healthy eating is all about making swaps from unhealthy foods to healthier alternatives and that is where the air fryer comes in. If you had said 20 years ago people would be using air fryers I am sure you would have been laughed at but its now more and more common. When I first started Slimming World I bought a well known brand of air fryer before they were as common as they are now. I was intrigued when I was offered a VonShef digital air fryer to review how it would differ. The big names are often a lot more expensive than ones like this but I am not sure they are that much better. Time to put it to the test!

Some things are just easier or cheaper to buy second hand. Not to mention how much eco friendly it is to sell or even giveaway items rather than take them to the local tip. I hate the idea of things unnecessarily going to landfill so to me any way of finding a new home for something is great. Currently there are Facebook groups and various online websites but have you heard of paperclip. I must be honest I hadn’t before looking into it to share with you.
For quite a while I have been interested in getting intolerance tests done for Ben and myself. When YorkTest Laboratories offered for me to try the tests out and share my experiences on my blog I thought it would be a great opportunity. There are many reasons why I was interested in intolerance tests which I will go into further below. If you have often considered this too then maybe our experiences will help you decide.
With Mobile phones costing so much we really need to look more at the cases we buy. Whilst some models have cases available everywhere including the pound shops others are harder to get. Do you buy a cheap case or spend a little more? When I was offered the chance to review some phone cases by Speck at the same time as myself and Stuart had both upgraded our contracts it was perfect.
