Working From Home With The Lenovo Ideapad 530S from AO.com

Being self-employed and working from home means needing the right tools to be able to get the job done. I am lucky enough to have my own office in one of the spare bedrooms but I don’t want to be shut away all of the time. Sometimes, it’s nice to work on the couch on an evening or be able to take work away with me if we go on holiday. For this, I need a laptop and my old model has been slowly dying for a while now. AO.com acted like my Fairy Godmother and only the day after

Remembering My Teenage Years With The Nokia 3310

Way back in the year 2000 I was 14 and busy being a troublesome teenager. Mobile phones were just becoming popular and if you didn’t have one in secondary school then you definitely weren’t part of the popular crowd. It’s funny how back then having a mobile phone wasn’t the norm but now, it’s rare to find someone who doesn’t have one. However, there was no touch screens, no internet with Facebook or Whatsapp and definitely no Candy Crush Saga. When AO.com recently offered to send us the Nokia 3310 3G I instantly thought back to when I was a

Sharp HT-SB150 Bluetooth Soundbar Review

A while back now we upgraded our TV after the old one sadly died. We went for a bigger screen than we’d had before and also one that had Netflix and Youtube integrated. However, we quickly realised that the sound quality was TERRIBLE! Sometimes we would have to turn the volume all the way up to maximum just to be able to hear things properly but then another channel would be really loud on this setting. A soundbar has been at the top of my wish list for so long now and AO.com recently sent us the Sharp HT-SB150 Bluetooth Soundbar

Hoover Freejet Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Review

At the moment we have a 2 vacuum cleaners and we keep 1 downstairs and 1 upstairs. Our upstairs vacuum cleaner is a bagged model and it’s really heavy and bulky so I’ve been looking to replace it for some time now. AO.com recently sent us the Hoover Freejet FE18AG Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.  When this was delivered I was really surprised at how light and small the box was. Every other vacuum cleaner I have ever had has come in a really bulky and heavy box but not this one. As I unpacked the box I was even more shocked. There

5 Minute Tidy Ups With The Hoover Clik Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

Sometimes it feels like I am forever walking around and cleaning up crumbs as Erin drops them. Some days it’s a bit of a pain getting the big vacuum cleaner out just to clean up a couple of crisp crumbs or a tiny mess in the middle of the rug. We were recently sent the Hoover Clik SC96DWR4 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner to help us out and here’s how we’ve been getting on with it. The Hoover Clik Handheld Vacuum Cleaner needs charging before you can use it but this is generally the case with any kind of cordless product. However, this one

Making Meal Times Easier With AO.com

Not too long ago our 7+ year old microwave died. What we thought was an exploded meal was actually rust and it just wasn’t working as well as it should. It took quite some time to actually think about how old that microwave was and we still can’t decide. Either I bought it while I was at university or John bought it when he first moved into our old flat. Whichever it was, it was really old and I think the cheapest we could get at the time. It certainly wasn’t anything special. It wasn’t even digital. Luckily, AO.com came to

Minimising Ironing Time With AO.com

In our house John does the ironing. It is my absolute most hated job and I only really do it once in a while if John has been working a lot or if it’s taking over the world. Unfortunately, with a cheap iron that gets a limescale build up too easily, this horrid chore can take a lot longer than it should do. Instead of replacing our battered, old iron with something similar, AO.com sent us the Morphy Richards Power Steam Elite Pressurised Steam Generator Iron. Up until now we have only had a regular, cheap kind of iron so when

How To Keep Your Blog Organised In The New Year

Wow, it’s now 2018 and this year will be my first full year being self-employed. Technically, I was self-employed for all of 2017 but I also worked in a supermarket until the end of the summer. Working from home full time is quite a lot of pressure as I have to earn a certain amount each month to keep up. Keeping on top of everything is a hell of a lot of work so here are some ways to keep your blog organised in the New Year. Technology It would be lovely to stay that working from home means being
