This is The Only Torch You’ll Need, Actually | Coleman Divide+350 Review

I know, I know – what am I actually writing here? A Coleman Divide+350 Review? Really? Let’s be honest, a torch isn’t the most exciting of products is it? And yet – it’s one of those things that you never think about – right up to the point you need it. At which point you really need it, and thank your lucky stars you had the foresight to get a good ‘un. And make no mistake here folks –...

Sunday Picture Book – Dear Zoo

We love books – obviously – and we often review latest releases. But I’ve been a parent for nearly twenty years, and I know that the older books sometimes get overlooked by new parents – and they’re missing out on a gem or two of bedtime reading. I think we all know the Very Hungry Caterpillar, of course, but I find newer parents may not know Albert Le Blanc, Little Tiger or Spot. There have been some beautiful picture books that we’d...

The Gaming Laptop – ASUS RoG STRIX GL702 Review

Reviewed by Cameron, my 18yr old Head of Tech and Media (really, I have no business near this laptop, not knowing my League of Legends from my Battlefield Go; it seemed better I hand it over to Head Gamer). And this is what he thought… Readers warning; this will be a nerdy review. And I’m not even sorry. “Compact and Potent” is the leading selling point on the ASUS website, and frankly I’ve never heard such an accurate...

The lightest, thinnest, fastest (& prettiest) laptop – the ASUS ZenBook 3 Review

It’s a conversation I see a lot in my online social circles; “I’m looking for a new laptop. It needs to handle all my work, but also needs to be light to carry around. Any suggestions?”. For bloggers and writers and photographers, it’s a perennial issue (and yes, it’s no doubt the same for many others too) – we need our tech to do our jobs, but we also need to not be chained to a big desk...

Holidaying in Luxury in the Brecon Beacons | Tyn y Coed Review

I closed the door of the woodburner and settled back down into the huge expanse of sofa, listening vaguely to the muffled murmurings of the teens in the hot tub outside. It was a damp and windy Welsh night out there, but happily ensconced in hot bubbles they didn’t seem to mind, and I certainly wasn’t complaining as I curled up with my book, glass of wine at my elbow. As always, the first day of the holiday had been a very...
