The Tegstove is a camping stove that does so much more than cook your food. Using butane gas, a clean burning eco friendly energy source, the Tegstove will allow you to charge your devices, cook and store energy yet in a very compact and portable way.
Anyone who has a dog should not be without one of these marvellous creations. If you have ever washed your pooch and tried desperately to wrap them securely in a towel before they can shake water everywhere, you will know what I mean.
If you are heading to the big city of Belfast there is no better time to do so than at Christmas. We ventured to the Belfast Christmas Markets and stayed overnight at Clayton Hotel Belfast which turned out to be an excellent choice.
I have to admit I may not have discovered Dogrobes as quickly if my sister had not rang me up one day ranting and raving about these fabulous towelling robes to put on the dogs when they are wet!! I am so glad she did though, I love my Dogrobe and so does my dog.
If your hubby is the ‘outdoors’ type he will really appreciate these 2 items from the high quality well known brand Thermos. I have quite a few of their products and they have stood the test of time and the test of ‘surviving’ in our household as well! The dual compartment food jar is perfect for taking both hot and cold foods on your travels accompanied with the king flask – you simply cannot go wrong with these two products.
The new iFit Classic fitness tracking watch is really something. Its a watch first and foremost and it looks like a watch, however, its also a brilliant fitness tracking device.
iFit claim to have the world’s leading fitness platform, connecting their fitness devices to smartphones, treadmills, stationary bikes etc. IFit offer comprehensive information, personalised training and connection to a massive community of users – over 30million miles were logged in one year by the iFit community, wow, imagine having that support behind you! I think this could be the motivation I need so I am now an iFit ‘addict’ and loving it.
The iFit classic watch is available in two colours – obsidian black/platinum or frost white with rose gold tones. I have the black and I love it. The face has 3 fitness dials that track steps, calories, sleep and distance.
This is really handy if you feel you have had a good day but the iFit classic will let you know if you have not reached your daily activity goal to stay in shape and healthy.
In particular, I love that I can track my calories easily and directly and I can make decisions regarding food choices and exercise and the results are quickly checked and tracked.
However, I am not so fond of the vibration alerts when I am sitting down with my feet up watching telly. I do note them and respond – in time!
The ‘Move Ready’ technology is exclusive to iFit and its pretty amazing – with some other fitness trackers you have to change modes when you change the type of activity you are doing. With the iFit Classic, the modes change themselves as this clever tracker can detect which activity you are doing. This makes wearing the tracker so easy and hassle free.
I also have to add that the iFit classic is water proof and the battery charge lasts up to 7 days. I have tried very hard to find a negative point to comment on but I have failed miserably! The iFit classic really is fantastic and it would make a perfect Valentine’s day gift for your other half.
The iFit classic is available from www.nordictrack.co.uk for a really good price of £199
I will never forget my time on the island of Hawaii. The sun, sea sand and gorgeous scenery made my trip unforgettable. Maui Jim sunglasses are inspired by and made in Hawaii, what better place to make and design super cool and practical sunglasses?
Aside from looking great, Maui Jim sunglasses ARE great! They combat glare, block 100% of harmful UV rays and do not compromise on vision quality. All the colours come to life when wearing Maui Jim’s, thanks to their revolutionary ‘PolarizedPlus’ lenses. The natural vibrant colours of the island are enhanced with rare earth elements incorporated in the lenses. Impressed? So am I. Maui Jim glasses can also be made to your own prescription so we can all enjoy the brilliance of these very cool eye glasses.
I have Maui Jim Bamboo Forest Sunglasses and all I can say is WOW. They look great, and are so easy to wear. The combination of a very light frame combined with super strong scratch resistant lenses have placed these at the top of my ‘favourites list’. These come in three styles – Olive Fade, Root beer Fade and Gloss Black Fade.
Exclusive to Maui Jim, MauiFlex memory metal ensures these frames outlast any other sunglasses, retain their shape and weigh next to nothing. They are worn effortlessly and the high gloss finish screams, ‘ look at my gorgeous sunglasses!’ Well, I think they do!
I can’t say enough about them. I have never spent more than £30 on sunglasses in the past so I guess I am fairly easily impressed. However, I never fail to stop at a stand of sunglasses and have tried various designer brands in my local ‘posh outlet shops’. Maui Jim are far superior. They sit as well on the top of my head holding my hair back as they do when worn to protect my eyes from the sun. The non-slip nose pads ensure they stay in place even when running about after the kids and our little dog. These glasses do not move! I wear them every-day and it ‘makes my day’ when I get admiring glances and comments about them.
I guess the perfect test was to wear them kayaking – would they survive a trip on the water and not fall off? Yes, they did! They perfectly fit snugly to the sides of your head and don’t budge.
Have a look online, the choice is vast with shades to suit all tastes and styles.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE VIEW
‘The Aloha Spirit permeates our philosophy at Maui Jim. Our “ohana” (Hawaiian for family) is passionate about creating the best sunglasses on the planet. Because at the end of the day, we want to see the world at its best – and we know that you do, too, no matter where you live. Aloha, friends!’ (Mauri Jim)
