Review: 4K Sport Action Camera Waterproof – FITFORT Ultra HD WiFi Camcorder with Remote Control Wide View Angle, 100ft Underwater and Mounting Accessories Kit for Diving/Biking/Climbing/Swimming (Black)


4K Sport action camera

This is a super little 4K Sport action camera, absolutely perfect for anyone who wants to video sports or action events.

As you can see from the photo, taken before I unpacked the box, this is crammed full of accessories.
Along with the camera, which comes in a good solid carry box,  there are several different mounts, a waterproof case, battery, clips…everything you will need, except for the memory card, which you need to provide yourself.

The instructions are simple to follow and outline the many different modes which this little camera is capable of.  Simple photo and video, burst, time lapse, etc.
I think the quality of the video is really good.  One of my kids is very into film and tech, so it’s been getting plenty of use so far, and given some really great results.
Price wise, it’s much cheaper than a similar popular style of camera, and I think the results you get here are fairly similar.
I think it’s a great little camera at a great price.

Review: WiFi Smart Plug, TECKIN Mini Outlet Smart Socket, Timing Function Control Your Devices from Anywhere, Works with Amazon Alexa and Google, No Hub Required(4 Pack)


Wifi plug

Great value four pack of wi-fi plug sockets.   Something I’ve been after for a while, but normally I think they’re a bit too expensive.
This comes with a simple to follow instruction booklet.  There’s a QR code in the book and on the box so it’s easy to download the Smart Life app.
The sockets can be controlled via the app or via a device like Amazon Echo or Google home.  I had no trouble getting things set up with my own Amazon Echo.
If you don’t feel like telling your plug sockets to turn themselves on there is a little on/off button on each plug (you can see it on my photo)  you can instead.
Overall, it’s a super price for 4 of these plugs and they’re really easy to set up.

Unfortunately at the time of writing they are not available, but hopefully there will be more in stock soon.

Review: BOGI Microfiber Travel Sports Towel-(Size:S M L XL)-Antibacterial Dry Fast Soft Lightweight Absorbent&Ultra Compact-Perfect for Camping Gym Beach Bath Yoga Backpacking Fitness +Gift Bag&Carabiner



(picture from Amazon)

I do like a microfibre towel and I’m slowly replacing a lot of my older traditional towels with these new ones.
This is a nice towel, which comes in it’s own little mesh bag, with a carabiner attached.
Being microfibre, it’s light and compact, but personally, I think they dry just as well as a normal towel, without the bulk, and they dry out much quicker.
They’re absolutely perfect for anyone who travels, camps or goes to the gym.
These towels are available in a 4 different sizes, and 6 bright and vibrant colours.

Review: iWalk 20000mAh Quick Charge 3.0/2.0 Built-in Type-C & Micro USB Cables Lightning Portable External Battery Pack Power Bank Charger for Samsung Galaxy S8 Note8 iPhone 5 6 7 8 Plus X SE Macbook iPad


Power bank

Power banks are incredibly useful.  I always keep one with  me in my bag, my phone runs out of power rather quickly these days.  My main issue is having a bag full of wires,
This handy power bank has an iphone and a USBC cable built into it, along with a usb port so that you can use your own wire if needed.,
As it’s a large capacity power bank, it does weigh rather heavy, but that is only to be expected.  A lighter power bank will not charge your devices as much without being charged multiple times itself.
This charger has a small button on the side which turns it on, and shows the small indicator lights, which tell you how much power is left in the power bank.  On arrival it was already 3/4 full, so didn’t take too long to fully charge.
The golden coloured logo on the front slides out and makes a handy charging stand for your phone.
Also in the box, along with a set of instructions is a short standard USB cable to charge the unit.  There was also a small bag with a “lightning adaptor” sticker, however my bag was empty but I think it should of had an iphone adaptor with it.
Overall, it’s a decent adaptor at a reasonable price given the capacity.

Review: Hydration Bladder 2L Backpacks Water Bag Water Bladder for Outdoor Hiking Cycling Camping Climbing(2L Hydration Bladder)

Hydration bladder

I thought this would be a good thing for my sporty son to use.  It holds quite a lot of water.  I did struggle to get 2 litres in, as the cap is below the 2L line.  The drinking tube is 1metre long.  The plastic is quite thick and seems pretty decent.  Unfortunately our bag has started to leak around the seal where the drinking tube fits in, rendering it fairly useless.  This may be a one off fault.  I do hope so, as otherwise it’s a decent product and would be very useful for runners, cyclists and the like.

Review: Dotted Bullet Journal/Notebook- ONSON Hardcover Notebook – PU Leather, Business A5 Notebook Leather Bound Daily Notepad, Casual Notebook with Leather Cover, Classic Travel Diary Sketchbook


Slight issue with the description here.  As you can see from my picture it is NOT a dotted bullet journal.
However, it is a really nice notebook.
It’s A5 size, with a nice dark blue hard fabric cover (not leather) and 160 lined pages.  It comes with a built in bookmark and an elastic pen holder at the side.  There is an elasticated closure loop too.
The pages have a slightly yellowed effect and have spaces for the date, along with boxes for the day and the weather.
Overall it’s a really nice journal and my teenage daughter was really happy with it.

The bright colours are very vibrant, and the wool is soft, and absolutely perfect for small felting or craft projects.
Since this arrived, the listing has changed slightly.  The package now contains 24 slightly larger 5g bags of wool and the price has reduced.

Review: Star Fairy String Lights Blinngo Window Curtain Lights, 8 modes led lights for Wedding/Christmas Party/Garden/Bedroom/Festival Decoration


Star lights

I was pleasantly surprised by this set of lights.  They are quite lovely.

You get 6 big stars, and each one has 5 smaller stars hanging above it.  There are plenty of hooks attached to make it easy for you to hang your lights.  The plug has a small button which when pressed scrolls through the different 8 light patterns these lights can produce.
It looks absolutely lovely when its on, and makes a great decoration for your living room, or kids bedroom.  I’m saving mine for Christmas to put in my window.
