July 2018 – What We Watched This Month

We’ve spent half of the month in LA, and while that means a lot of time spent exploring it also means that we’ve had a chance to catch up on some awesome movies on two flights each more than 11 hours. The Adults Hidden Figures On our return flight from Los Angeles to Manchester, we had a choice of six films and one really stood out – so much so when I looked around, everyone was watching it. That film was hidden figures. This film is empowering, but also as a young person, it reminds you how far people of colour have had to come to have the same rights as us and how hard that must have been. At… View Post

Review: Logitech G213 Prodigy Keyboard

With the recent addition of a Corsair mousemat to my set up, I was very excited to get my hands on the RGB gaming keyword G213 Prodigy by Logitech. This keyboard would be replacing the standard one which came with the computer. While the computer itself may be a ROG Gaming Computer it didn’t come with the additional peripherals like you might have come to expect. Unboxing The G213 Prodigy First up, the box itself. I always think you can tell a lot about the quality of a product by its packaging. If you’re spending 50% or more than the average for a particular product then you will notice that in the packaging. That’s the same across all the markets,… View Post

June 2018 – What We Watched This Month

A little like may we have spent quite a lot of our time away. While this doesn’t mean we haven’t watched a lot, we also haven’t watched too much new stuff. We have been enjoying a lot of Netflix, as it is easy to watch anywhere in the world. The Adults You Me Her We started watching You, Me, Her quite some time ago when it first came onto Netflix. We ended up not finishing the second series so we decided to catch up again. We wre drawn back in as Netflix advertised they had a new series out so we thought we would watch. Later realising we didn’t finish the second series. You, Me, Her is an interesting twist… View Post

Review: Rick & Morty Pint Size Heroes By Funko

We’ve never been huge fans of Funko Pops (gasp!). Since their rise to fame in 2015 we’ve found the quality to be lacking and the volume and variety available to collect to be rather incomprehensible. However, today we found ourselves picking up some Rick and Morty Pint Size Heroes on reduction while in the USA. Inside blind bags, I was unable to tell if the quality of this small but mighty Funko products had in fact improved, and so it seemed only fitting I picked some up to open them up and find out. Pint Size Heroes By Funko Pint Size Heroes were launched in August of 2016 by Funko. In the beginning, the range consisted of just three different… View Post

May 2018 – What We Watched This Month

We actually have spent quite a bit of our time away doing everything from weddings to holidaying so we have watched nothing too new this month. Though we always have some great things to share with you. We keep updated with what the kids have been watching too so we can give your little ones something new to watch. The Adults Westworld Series 2 While we are only 3 episodes in I can easily say this has been one of the best things we have watched this month. We were blown away by Westworld the first time so getting a new series has been something to look forward to. Though still as twisted and complicated you can’t help but be enthralled with… View Post

Review: Corsair Gaming MM300 Extended

Last year I FINALLY bought a mediocre second-hand gaming PC. I say that because as I’m sure you know gaming PC’s are expensive, and I wanted to be sure I would use it enough to justify the cost. Slowly but surely as I’ve been using the PC more and more I’ve been adding new peripherals to my set up, and today finally, it was time to add a mouse mat. Not just any mouse mat though, the Corsair Gaming MM300 Extended. I’ve been in love with Corsair products like many gamers for as long as I can remember. However much like a gaming PC itself, the Corsair products aren’t cheap which is my reasoning for putting this purchase off for… View Post

April 2018 – What We Watched This Month

April turned out to be a busy month for us but we still managed to make time for our loved programmes and even found some new ones. We also flew to Orlando for a 2 week holiday and got to see some new stuff on the flight which is always good. We managed to binge watch a whole new series and start on the next one. Let’s check out what we watched this month… The Adults Marvels Jessica Jones While I have watched a couple of Marvel films and like a good superhero story I hadn’t fallen into the fan zone like some others. While searching through Netflix for a new series to binge on, we stumbled on Jessica Jones.… View Post

Our 2018 Bucket List – Update #1

Back at the start of the year (which was now four months ago… SERIOUSLY!!), we sat down together to come up with a bucket list of things we’d like to achieve in 2018. We tried to come up with a variety of things that would enhance our life together over the course of 12 months, and as with all goals, it’s important you reflect on them often. Which is why, today, a third of the way through the year we’re doing our first update. Go Away Once A Month We were determined to go away at least once a month this month and so far… so good! Well, except for March when only Helen went away on a Hen Do to… View Post

We’re Going To BlogOnX

Helen and I are both excited to be attending BlogonX in exactly 14 days time (by which time we’ll be home from Orlando, Florida and have spent five nights in Iceland… we have A LOT going on right now) It’s my third time at the BlogOn conference (I think… it could be fourth!) and Helen’s second. However, it’s the first time we’ll be attending together to represent our multigenerational lifestyle blog The Harrison Household. We, therefore, figured it was pretty fitting to complete the BlogOnX linky which you can learn more about right here… Share a recent photo of yourself Here’s a quick snap of us meeting the one and only Ariel at Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World last week 🙂 What’s… View Post

Everything You Need To Know About Mardles Rocks

I’ve loved Geo-caching for as long as I can remember, but I can’t always imagine it’s that fun for kids (especially after one or two finds…) which is why when I heard about Mardles Rocks I knew it was going to be a hit! So, what is Mardles Rocks? The idea is very simple to Geocaching, just with added AR and a little more emphasis on design and creativity – which in my opinion is what makes it perfect for kids! In short, hide and or find decorated rocks and move or reside them for others to find. However, what makes Mardles Rocks unique from other decorated rocks is the ability to add AR (augmented reality) While you can find… View Post
