Coravin Model 1 Wine System

I have to confess that I enjoy collecting wine more than drinking it. Part of the reason for this is that once a bottle of wine is opened, it needs to be finished fairly quickly – otherwise it will oxidize and no longer be enjoyable to drink. Hence I have been on the quest for something which makes the wine last longer. But all of the ones I’ve tried have one flaw – the bottle needs to be uncorked to access the wine which will introduce air into the bottle. When I first became aware of the Coravin Wine System last Friday (it was featured in an article in the Metro newspaper), it definitely piqued my interest as it overcomes this problem, at least for the wines bottled with a cork.

Entertainment Hub/Games room: 1) Kesen Wireless Smart Light Switch

For the last 5-6 months, we had been planning to convert the garage into a usable room, what we would call our entertainment hub or games room. Now that the room is complete, it is time to fit it with the various technology to make it a high-tech fun room. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting about the various pieces of equipment we have bought to kit up this room. Today I will focus on the wireless wall light switch to control the lights in the games room – Kesen Switch-2 Gang WiFi Smart Light switch from Amazon.co.uk (RRP £23.45).

iPhone X

Having used the iPhone 6 Plus for three years now, it was getting a little slow and falling behind in the technology department. Hence when the iPhone X was announced, touting a lovely 5.8″ OLED screen – slightly larger screen compared to the iPhone 8 Plus, yet smaller in overall size – was ultimately what made me decide to upgrade to the iPhone X instead of the 8 Plus.

Seguro Bluetooth FM Transmitter Car Kit

On my journey to and from work each morning and evening, I tend to listen to Classic FM on the radio. But as the reception tends to be poor the nearer I get to my work place, I decided that enough was enough and I had to find a solution. Hence I decided to buy the Seguro Bluetooth FM transmitter car kit – cost £11.49 from Amazon.co.uk. Continue reading Seguro Bluetooth FM Transmitter Car Kit

Staresso Manual Coffee maker

Drinking a nice cup of coffee has become part of my daily routine. For the times when I am not able to use my Delonghi bean-to-cup coffee machine to make my coffee, I needed to get a portable coffee maker which could make great coffee with ground coffee and which does not cost too much. Hence when I found the Staresso Manual coffee maker for £29.99 on Amazon.co.uk, I had to buy this to try. Continue reading Staresso Manual Coffee maker

Lictin Pack of 3 Refillable Dolce Gusto Pods

Previously when I first got into drinking a cup of coffee in the morning, I did not know better so I bought the Dolce Gusto Melody coffee machine to brew the coffee. I then realised that it had limited numbers of coffee pods, none of which appealed to me. Hence I tried opening up the used pods and replacing them with ground coffee and placed aluminium foil over it to form the lid, just so I could make a cup I would be happy to drink.

As it was a lot of work and not always successful, I finally gave up and bought a Bean-to-Cup machine by Delonghi to meet my coffee needs. But now that there are refillable pods available for the Dolce Gusto, I thought I would buy these to try – will save money in the long run, reduce the amount of waste produced by those disposable pods, and more importantly allow for the use of better coffee beans/ground coffee to make that nice cup of coffee worth drinking. Continue reading Lictin Pack of 3 Refillable Dolce Gusto Pods

Wheatgrass and Acai berry Pellets

Recently when I went on my weekly grocery shopping, I went to the freezer section to buy my usual frozen blueberries and strawberries for my fruit-protein smoothie. While there, I noted that there were plenty of other fruits and vegetables available to purchase – clearly healthy eating and smoothies is big business, which is why there are so many options available. I noted that there were wheatgrass and acai berry pellets for making smoothies, and hence I bought these as well. The wheatgrass pellet pack costs more at £3.00 per 100g, while the acai berry pack costs £2.00 per 100g pack (same as the other fruit packs). Continue reading Wheatgrass and Acai berry Pellets
