Review: Utopia 360° Elite Edition VR Headset

Review: Utopia 360° Elite Edition VR Headset

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed anything techy, so I leapt at the opportunity to try the Utopia 360° Elite Edition VR Headset with HD Stereo Headphones. Virtual reality is something that’s really taken off over the last few years and has been used in advertising and even featured in music videos.

I’ve used Google Cardboard at work when testing panoramas created by the software, but of course one of its main uses is for gaming. There are plenty of games you can buy from the App Store or Play store, many of which are free! View Post

I have a gift guide for mums coming up very soon, but today I want to focus on those smaller gifts that are so much fun to unwrap because you never know quite what they’re going to contain. The stocking fillers! Some families even have a sweet tradition of small gifts on the table alongside the crackers.

Of course, what you’d fill stocking with depends on the age, gender and interests of the person. However, I’ve compiled a few ideas to get you started!

Sunday Review: The Charming Candle Co.

Sunday Review: The Charming Candle Co.

It’s a very rare moment these days that I get to sit back and relax. I’ve had some anxiety issues since childhood and am not very good at relaxing. However, one way I like to relax is with some lovely scented candles. Recently, I’ve seen candles online where there is a hidden treasure waiting inside! Dave bought me one the year before last which looked like a Pokeball and had a little plastic Pokemon inside it. However, in a classier move which is more suitable to most people’s tastes, The Charming Candle Co. have jewellery inside theirs.
