Treat your teeth with the new @colgateuk ConnectE1brush which is perfect for the tech-savvy and time deprived parents! It uses #artificialintelligence to track your brushing and tells you via the Bluetooth connected app just how well you’re brushing and even teaches you how to do it better too!
Brushing your teeth is a twice daily occurrence for most yet we still may be missing parts and not getting that perfect brush completed… Throughout your brushing journey you get smile points for each brush plus a percentage of how well you’ve done with an image displaying yellow areas for any missed areas or where you haven’t spent long enough brushing!

Perfect for adults you can equally get the kids involved with two games to play whilst brushing! – They both encourage you to brush certain areas to do better in each game meaning you get fab brushing coverage whilst making it fun!
The toothbrush, which has been designed with the help of dentists, provides real-time feedback on your brushing habits in 16 zones of the mouth, even tracking regularity, your speed and the angle of your brushing.

Wine without the hangover… that’s Winning at life! So we tried out the Üllo Wine Purifier £69.99 to see whether it is worth the money and whether it makes the difference with taste and or the hangover… 🙂
Now I’m not the biggest on wine – but the in-laws know a good wine, so where better to test this modern, easy clean and easy use gadget? The Ullo Wine purifier also gives the option to aerate – Üllo is a revolutionary wine purifier that uses Selective Sulphite Capture™ technology to filter Sulphitesuls and sediments, bringing wine back to its natural state – [These are only needed for storage within wines and these can often make the wine more bitter].
Of course this needed a bottle or two to test it… and a good red was chosen to test, tasted before and after, we found the wine to taste smoother and almost lighter when used with the filters (One bottle filter)… making it an easier drink. – We didn’t drink enough to warrant a hangover (drink sensibly guys!!)
The only thing i’d say is that we wish the filters were cheaper – at around £30 for 10… just because we get through a lot of wine at family do’s and with each filter for one bottle this could start totting up!
Dad’s sorted with the #new #shockabsorbing hydro5 sense razor from Wilkinson Sword, it has five ultra glide blades which smooth the skin’s surface as it removes hair, helping to reduce irritation and costs £12 for the handle and from £14 for the blades.

Sony brings us the new Xperia XZ & it perfects the fundamentals of a great smartphone. Packed with innovations in technology, it boasts a photo-pro’s camera, an intelligent battery and smart features that adapt to you. And it’s all delivered in a stunning, evolved design.
Our version came in a striking metallic blue casing, created with a high purity ALKALEIDO™ metal, adding depth, shine and brightness to the finish.
We were impressed with the idea of the intelligent battery life, it picks up when and how long you usually charge your phone for, so that I can spread its full capacity charge across the hours it’s in charge – so say if you charge it nightly whilst you sleep – it will spread the charge across those average 8 hours so it’s. It overcharging a full battery! If you want a quick blast though make sure your settings for intelligent are off otherwise you may not get that quick zap you need to get you home after work!
The camera with three times the precision – Xperia XZcomes loaded with the advanced photography technologies you recognize from other Xperiasmartphones. They’ve also added triple image sensing technology to analyse, adapt and capture perfect shots in challenging conditions. Life’s best subjects are rarely still for long. Xperia XZ allows you to capture even moving objects – before the moment passes you by. Bringing together the power of an imaging sensor and a laser autofocus sensor, you can freeze movement in the sharpest detail, even when the light is low.
We found the camera quick to load and useful to have the second camera button on the side for landscape use, alike a real camera. It helps aid the quick load from standby to camera in 6.5 seconds – meaning you won’t miss a thing!
Overall it’s a fab phone with a good range of emojis for those that love to use them. Unfortunately I don’t get on too well with android myself, due to using phones with other platforms since the start of time, but once you’re used to it it’s great for those that want a quick happy snap to treasure your memories with or to use along with Spotify for smooth playing clear music.
Remember this could be your Christmas gift! It’s not long now!
