Postsnap Website Review

I’m big on sending gifts and cards to people in the post. I love to surprise my loved ones with a little “I’m thinking of you” gesture, so finding Postsnap was pretty awesome. There’s a wealth of photos on my Google account these days and I wanted to actually do something with them beyond spend money printing them only to shove them in an album to be forgotten. Postsnap seemed like a nice way to m...[Read More]

It’s American Press Review

I’m a little obsessed with coffee. Most mornings start with a flat white from an amazing local coffee bar, but at home I’ve always just settled for instant. Sure, the French press has been tried – a few times – but the coffee just isn’t that good and I wind up abandoning the experiment. You know exactly what I mean too; that sediment-y, sludgy taste that is bitter in all the wron...[Read More]

This is Halloween, Everybody Scream!

There’s Christmas merchandise in the stores, and I don’t like it – it’s too early for that!

Vax Blade 32V Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Review

Is it hard to get excited about a vacuum cleaner? Usually, yes. I’m a sucker for a good commercial (pun intended), but even then I didn’t expect to look forward to cleaning – until the Vax Blade 32V Cordless vacuum cleaner arrived on my doorstep. My first impression was “man, this thing is light!”, swiftly followed – upon unboxing – by “man, this thing is sexy”. Yes, I actually thought...[Read More]

eve Pillows, Duvet and Bedding Review

Sleep; we all do it wrong. Or at least, not as well as we could. I’ve always been one to settle for the cheapest pillows and bedding on the department store shelf. I’ve always thought, “That’s good enough, I’m asleep anyway so what does it matter?” Well, it turns out it really does matter. You’ve probably heard of eve. They’re all about the boxed mattress, makin...[Read More]
