Top Tech During Lockdown – what people are really buying

So, what is the top tech during lockdown that people are really buying? Officially we have been in Lockdown for 8 weeks now, yup 8 whole weeks (or 2 months) since the 23rd of March.

Three ways to upgrade your living room before Christmas

When Christmas is just around the corner, we all want to revamp our homes, add some changes, or upgrade household items such as furniture.

If you have children, your living room sofas probably tend to get too dirty and worn out too fast. While you can manage with the rest of the things, you cannot have dirty or...
