#EatLikeAPro with the Beko Vacuum Blender

Every morning, Mrs Adams and I start the day with a smoothie made of fresh fruit. Occasionally we’ll also through in some frozen fruit or ice cubes, but the aim is always to start the day with a highly nutritious drink that tastes great. Could we improve our smoothies using the new to-the-market Beko Vacuum Blender? Well, we certainly gave it a try.

Urtekram and Hair Trade reviews

It’s been a while since I have reviewed any men’s grooming or toiletry products. I am delighted to bring that particular drought to an end with reviews of several items that have impressed me greatly.

Organising a day out using the Trainline app

Disclosure: This is a commissioned post produced in association with Trainline.

As a family, we tend to travel quite a bit. We have relatives in various locations across the UK and so we’re often catching trains to London, Scotland and the Cotswolds. During holiday periods, we travel even more and so we’re frequently on the look-out to find the most cost-effective rail tickets.

I had used the Trainline app in the past, but never to its full potential.

Reviewed: Inateck laptop bag. Great when you need to travel with tech.

It being the summer holidays, I’m spending a lot of time visiting attractions with the kids and undertaking various overnight stays. Among the many considerations I have to consider is what luggage to take.

Peering out from behind the Inateck laptop bag. Not just any rucksack, oh no. This one has an external USB port.
