There is this wonderful moment in one of the Harry Potter books when Professor Dumbledore cleans up an entire room with the wave of a wand, I could enjoy cleaning more if you could do everything in one clean swoop. I’m not saying the ROIDMI X20 is magic or can fix broken ornaments and remove dragon blood from your walls, but it can vacuum and mop up your floor in one go, leaving you more time to watch movies about wizards.

If you feel you have a handle on life there’s nothing like trying to use someone else’s shower to remind you that you are basically a monkey whacking a coconut against the floor trying to get in. Some showers have so many dials, knobs and buttons it looks more like a cockpit of a plane instead of something to wash the filth off. The Mira Advance Shower has been designed in such a simple, intuitive way that anyone can use it first time…even with a hangover.
Recently we moved to a beautiful house in the countryside and with this move we wanted to embrace a slightly more grown up, homely lifestyle, so when I invited my friends over I decided to provide some homemade cookies and banish my long-standing reputation of being a hopeless baker. I had total faith in my new Cuisinart Precision Stand Mixer and even found a recipe in the booklet provided: white chocolate and cranberry cookies. I decided if I followed it word for word, I couldn’t go wrong.
I am a pretty antisocial person, if I don’t recognise a phone number chances are I’m not going to answer it, I am not so lucky with callers to the house, our front door is right by the window so by the time I’ve spied who it is they have seen me too and I’ve been told it looks a little rude when I drop to the floor and hastily crawl up the stairs to avoid people. The Brinno DUO Smart Peephole DoorCam lets you see who is at your door without having to leave your favourite hiding place, avoid the cold callers during dinner and even photograph dodgy looking t
Yale might be best known as a lock-making company, but what you may not know is that they also produce a wide range of home security smart devices including the All-in-One Indoor/Outdoor Camera. This camera is app enabled and compatible with Amazon Alexa, all you have to ask is, “Show me the front door” to access a live feed from your camera on Alexa screen-enabled devices (compatible with Echo Show, Echo Spot, all generations of Fire TV, 2nd generation Fire TV Stick and fire Tab).
Thanks to the amazing David Attenborough and the creators of Blue Planet 2, our society seems to have really begun to take note of the issue of plastic waste in our environment, there are small changes we can all make every day to reduce our personal waste without abstaining from our favourite things. The Spirit is the latest addition to the SodaStream range of soda makers, which provides you with the power to turn tap water into sparking drinks in seconds, allowing you to add flavours in your own home and enjoy fizzy drinks without having to purchase pre-
In the middle of the summer me and my body have a battle when it comes to trying get to sleep, it’s warm so my body is saying, “We definitely don’t need a duvet as it’s way too hot,” whilst my brain is saying, “Are you kidding? If you aren’t covered up the monsters are going to get you!” When you have spent your entire life associating being covered up with going to sleep it is difficult to break that habit when it is hot.
We have recently been shifting things about in our house, getting ready to move out in a few weeks, and it’s slightly horrifying to pick up a piece of furniture and discover that the carpet underneath is a completely different colour to the rest of the room. Although many of us hoover regularly that is often as far as we go when it comes to taking care of our carpets, the Vax Platinum Power Max Carpet Washer could be just the thing to give them a new lease of life.
Victorinox are well known for making Swiss army knives so it makes absolute sense they should know what they are doing when it comes to making knives on a slightly larger scale. The 6-Piece Modern Cutlery Block certainly wouldn’t fit in your camping pack at 165 x 90 x 320mm but will look much more at home on your kitchen counter. The block itself has a nice weight to it at 1965g and feels very sturdy as you remove the knives, it is constructed from a durable beechwood that has been coated in anthracite lacquer.
We have the ability to see who is calling us on our phones before we commit to answering and as a highly antisocial person I believe its only fair that we can apply the same tech to our front doors, the Wire-Free 720p Smart Video Doorbell from Swann does just that and even allows you to ignore potential visitors from anywhere in the world. One of the immediate features we were happy to notice was that it can be mounted in a completely wire-free configuration, this makes installation and location an absolute breeze, however this is also where we came across
