Welcome Back…

Welcome Back…

A New Year; A New Me! Hello my Fellow Techsperts, Yes it is me. I’m back again (not in a Slim Shady kind of way) and raring to get going in 2019. Some of you maybe thinking why it has taken me so long to get my fingers tapping on these keys and honestly, there is not a singular reason, just a multitude of things. I want you to be enjoying what I write and if I had forced it,…

The Rose Gold Edit

Hello my fellow Techsperts, Well I’ve been a tad quiet of late haven’t I?  What with the lead up to Christmas, it has been all systems go and something had to take a backseat.  However, since transforming our house into the most beautiful of Christmas Grotto’s, it has really gotten me into the Christmas spirit and thinking of a new way to present my blog to you all. Yes…this one will be less “fluffy & wordy,” with more of a…

“Are Smartwatches just for Geeks?”

Hello my fellow techsperts, What’s been going on with you? Also, what have we been seeing recently in the world of smartwatches?  A massive surge to the category, that’s what! As many of you will know, Apple launched their Series 4 smartwatch, alongside another “small” name brand with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy smartwatch hitting the market and seemingly growing their market share in the CE division in Q3.  We have also seen the Huawei GT smartwatch land, featuring…

I came, I saw, I conquered…(just about!)

Hello my Fellow Techsperts! I am back… Yes I have been away now for over a month and what a month that has been.  It really has been the Christmas of announcements in the CE world and I am not just talking about the keynote from Apple. I am of course talking about IFA. I was fortunate to be able to attend IFA for the 2nd time this year.  Held in the city of Berlin, IFA is the largest consumer…

Hello my fellow Techsperts, I hope you’ve all been enjoying yourself since my last post about retro, childhood tech. What have I been up to in two weeks…? Well from a wedding, to birthday celebrations right the way through to general “lifemin,” it doesn’t feel like there has been a two week gap since my last post.  I honestly don’t feel like my feet have touched the ground.  Is this a good thing?  Well, it keeps me out of mischief…

Childhood Memories

Good Evening my fellow techsperts, Once again, apologies on the hiatus with writing, I have been taking my annual breaks, both with my partner and “Shire Sisters.” I promise that there will be much more regular writing going forward, especially with a pending trip to IFA in Berlin. Are any of you going? Whilst many of you maybe thinking why are you writing a blog on a Friday night and not down the pub sipping on G&T? Well, I had…

The Art of Gifting

Hello my fellow Techsperts! Firstly and most importantly, I apologise for the lack of writing recently.  From having a much deserved holiday, to getting into the World Cup (I never in a million years thought that would happen), my blog has taken a bit of a back seat in all of it.  However, for those who follow me on Instagram, I have been trying to keep up with that.  Hopefully you haven’t felt too lost without me!

Holiday Haul

Hello my fellow techsperts! In a week where we have seen the World Cup starting and I have become a football widow for the foreseeable future, it has got me to thinking about what people are watching the games on, as well as how something like sport can truly bring people together.  We all know there has been concerns around where the games are being hosted, with worries surrounding the safety of the players and fans, but I am yet to…

Hello my fellow techsperts! So in this episode of Laura the Techsplorer, I wanted to talk to you about the massive trend that is heath, fitness and wellbeing, with a particular focus on the health and wellbeing parts.  Fitness for those of you who personally know me, is a mental barrier and work in progress (also known as a severe case of I prefer catch ups of Love Island in the evening to even attempt getting on our turbo trainer;…

Hey my fellow techsperts and I hope you’ve all enjoyed the lovely bank holiday weekend. If you’re non UK then I am #notsorry for the 3 day weekend we’ve just had; we all have them and you can rub it in my face when you’re having a BBQ and I am sat at my desk on a Monday!
