Xupo Key Finder – Review & Giveaway

Xupo Key Finder – Review & Giveaway

How often do you walk into the house with your shopping in one hand, kids in the other and just throw your keys down? I do this a lot, which also means that I lose my keys a lot. Which then means I spend far too much time trying to find said keys, after they’ve been misplaced! There’s nothing worse than finally getting the kids ready to leave the house and then having to spend another twenty minutes trying the find my keys.

This week my prayers were answered when I was offered the chance to try out the Xupo Key Finder, as featured on Dragon’s Den. An amazing little device that can easily be attached to your keys, or anything else for that matter, making it impossible to lose your stuff ever again!


What does it do?

Once you have attached the Xupo to your keys, the next thing to do is download the free Xupo app.Then to find your keys, using Bluetooth technology, all you have to do is ‘Tap to find your Xupo’ and voila! It really is that simple! You can also call your phone from your Xupo by clicking the button on its surface, this is a great feature that I’m sure I’ll have to use far too often!

The Xupo has extra features that you can unlock, such as Xupo map. This enables you to track your items by locating their last recorded destination on a map.

How did I get on with the Xupo Key Finder?

I think that the Xupo is a fabulous piece of kit. In fact, now that I’ve gotten used to finding my keys in seconds I wonder how I ever managed without it. It’s so small and light that you don’t even realise it’s attached to your keys and the ‘Call it’ function has been a total lifesaver more than once already!

If like me, you love your technology and you hate losing your things, then the Xupo is an absolute must have. Say goodbye to wasting time trying to find your gear and enjoy your new found freedom! The Xupo Key Finder – genius!

#BabyLove My Toddler Life – Children’s Book Review

#BabyLove My Toddler Life – Children’s Book Review

We love reading over here at The Tale of Mummyhood HQ. We have a library to rival the the best of them, so when we get the chance to review the latest children’s books we jump at the chance!  This week we were sent #BabyLove My Toddler Life, written and illustrated by Corine Dehghanpisheh, not only was it fun to read to our girls but it also sends an important message to us adults!

Corine Dehghanpishe is a award winning author and My Toddler Life is the second book in her #BabyLove series, after the first instalment My Social Life. My Toddler Life is based on a little boy who finds his mums phone and goes ahead and uses it without her say so. We’ve all been there right?  However when she explains quality time is for playing and having fun, not for using smartphones, it really hits home how much time we spend on our devices and how much we miss because of it!


Author & Illustrator Corine Dehghanpishe


Corine has illustrated the book beautifully. It’s bright and colourful, which is perfect for keeping the littles interested and wanting to find out more! I personally love that the book is so current, in that it’s based around our love for the hashtag and our technology. I also love that it relays the subtle message that even though we all use our tablets and phones, sometimes we just need to put them down and live in the present moment!

Penclic Mouse R3, A Blogger’s Best Friend

Penclic Mouse R3, A Blogger’s Best Friend

As a blogger and a writer I spend more time on my laptop than ever before.  With a to-do list that’s often as long as my arm and not enough hours in the day, anything that makes my work run a little smoother is a welcome companion.

I was recently given the chance to try out the Penclic Mouse R3, it’s has the comfort of a pen with the expertise of a mouse.  It makes surfing the net, writing and blogging easier than ever before.  I love the modern and stylish look of the mouse, the fact that it’s wireless also makes using it a pleasure.  Long gone are the days of cleaning the ball of the mouse and the continual freeing of the wire!

The Penclic  is compatible with both PC and MAC, meaning when my MAC dreams come true my Penclic will migrate with me.  What’s also great is that it can be used similarly to a traditional mouse if you need to, with the pen aspect allowing for more precise movement.

Admittedly, as I work mainly from my laptop or iPhone I don’t use the Penclic every time I sit down to work.  It’s more of a big project work buddy, that comes in handy when I know I have a few hours of screen time ahead of me.

Overall, I’ve found the Penclic to be a great bit of kit.  If you’re in the market for a new mouse, you won’t be disappointed with the ease, comfort and style the Penclic has!
