Braun ORAL-B Vitality White + Clean 26/01/2015

I'M A BLUE TOOTHBRUSH

Braun ORAL-B Vitality White + Clean WHY I BOUGHT THIS ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH A couple of years ago I decided to buy what I consider to be a “decent” electric toothbrush. I say decent because I had previously bought cheaper versions of electric brushes as well as some battery models. I used to try the more novelty type of toothbrushes (back in the days when my sons and daughters were young children) as toothbrushes to use on occasions, just to make a change from manual brushing. But none of these really seemed to last very long and to be honest most just didn’t seem worth the bother. The actual brushes often didn’t last very long at all and then when I wanted to replace these I would often find that the model had been discontinued and new brushes could not be bought any longer. Some of the toothbrushes quickly lost their ability to charge up. And this happened much too quickly, in my opinion. After a few years without owning an electric toothbrush I began to think that I would like to at least try one again. I didn’t want to pay too much, especially as electric toothbrushes were something that I had my reservations about… but I thought if I was going to buy tone then I would rather purchase a well-known and hopefully a reliable brand. After having a look around at electric toothbrushes when I was in stores such as Superdrug, Boots the chemist and a couple of supermarkets I had a good idea of models of toothbrushes and the price I should expect to pay. Eventually I bought a Braun Oral-B Vitality White ...

REMINGTON AIRSTYLER AS7051-Helps me to Travel Lightly

Remington AS7051 A NEW HOT AIR STYLER I recently reviewed the Vidal Sassoon VSHA6471UK and explained that although this hot air styler did its job well enough, especially considering the cheap price I paid (less than £13) I still ended up returning it. The reasons that I wasn't satisfied with the Sassoon product were that it felt too flimsy, wasn't powerful enough and really I had wanted a hot air brush that would also double up as a travel hair dryer. I wanted to be able to pack the one item of hair drying/styling equipment in my luggage rather than a hair dryer as well as a styling hot brush. My previous hot air styler, which was made by the well-known manufacturer Philips, had broken and I couldn't find the same model on sale, as new, any longer. This was a shame as The Philips model had been very reliable and had travelled with me on many occasions. After searching unsuccessfully for a similar hot air brush by Philips I decided to look for a brush made by another company which I considered reputable. I looked at hot air styling brushes by well-known manufacturers, including Remington, Braun and Babyliss. WHY I CHOSE THIS MODEL There are so many hot air brushes on the market that I decided to have a good think about what I really wanted in a new styler and ‘’’which were the most important purchasing factors.’’’ I decided that I wanted: A styler that was powerful enough to use as a hair dryer. It didn’t have to be extremely powerful but at least comparable with a travel hair ...

Your Resolutions For 2015 14/01/2015

RING OUT THE OLD, RING IN THE NEW

Your Resolutions For 2015 RING IN THE NEW 2014 was a busy year. My youngest son married and my youngest daughter graduated from university. It was a fantastic year yet a difficult one to follow. I haven’t made formal resolutions as such this year but have had a good think about things, as I always do towards the end of a year and at the start of a new one. This year, and not long after I’d rung out the old and rung in the new, I had that flat January feeling. I felt I didn’t have much to look forward to, or at least, not for a while… but then things changed. FAMILY My eldest daughter spent her January birthday in Amsterdam with her partner. They've been together for years and finally made that big commitment and proposed to her on a bridge (adorned with padlocks) on her birthday. My first resolution is similar every year; I want to be there for my four children and their partners, to continue to support them although without being interfering. I don’t think I do interfere. If they argue, which is rare, I won’t take sides. A wedding date hasn't been set for my daughter and her fiancé. It may be there’s not a wedding until next year but wedding plans will begin My son and his wife stayed calm over their wedding plans but my daughter might become more stressed. I’ll try to be as supportive as possible and calm. I resolve to remember that modern weddings and ways can be quite different to my own ideas. (VIRTUAL) FRIENDS AND FOES I‘ve had a few problems with Facebook, as have many, if I hear ...

JML Turbo Brush 12/12/2014

Cleaning at the Speed of Sound

JML Turbo Brush WHY I PURCHASED THE JML TURBO BRUSH As I have been experiencing increasing difficulties lately in performing certain household chores, those that require more manual dexterity than I possess, I recently decided to invest in some aids which I thought might possibly make some tasks around the home easier to carry out. My husband helps a lot but there are some jobs that don’t get done as often as they should do if I'm relying on someone else to do them. Not only that, I can’t simply vegetate, so I thought that it would make sense to try some gadgets or devices that might help me to be able to undertake certain household chores. One comparatively new gadget that I have purchased is the JML Turbo Brush. Actually it was my husband who spotted this item earlier this year while we were out trying to spend some money in The Range store in Romford, Essex. I was surprised when we were in The Range and my husband called me over to show me the JML Turbo Brush, because he usually thinks most of these types of items are a waste of time. Actually, I wasn't too sure myself and said that I didn’t think it would be much good. But thought that we might as well give it a try. It was added to our shopping basket. WHAT IS IT? After using the JML Turbo Brush to clean in my bathroom recently, I left it out on the bathroom work top. My daughter was visiting for the weekend. She went into the bathroom ready to clean her teeth when she saw the Turbo Brush and asked. “What is it?” I replied, ...

Tresemme Color Protection Color Revitalize Conditioner 11/12/2014

Revitalizes My Colour as it Cares for my Hair

Tresemme Color Protection Color Revitalize Conditioner After washing my hair with TREsemme’s Vitamin E & Aloe Revitalize shampoo I like to follow up by using the Vitamin E & Aloe Revitalize conditioner from this range. I always try to buy and use the same range of shampoos and conditioners as I believe that they complement each other and using them together will get the best results from any particular range. But this doesn't always work because the contents in a shampoo bottle lasts (well, this is definitely true with me in any case) far longer than the conditioner does. I do often buy two bottles of conditioner to one shampoo but then I'm left with some conditioner without any of the corresponding shampoo so it never seems to quite work out. I have reviewed the shampoo from this range and mentioned then that my hairdresser doesn't like the shampoo and was in fact very disparaging about it saying that it makes hair need washing more often but as it has the feel good factor (good lather and a lovely smell) consumers think it’s a better product than it is. Well, I still like it for my hair. At the time I mentioned to her that my hair always feels silky and well cared for after using the conditioner. She said that she thinks that the conditioner is a different story and advised me to use a superior (well, a better one by her standards) shampoo but to follow it with the TREsemme conditioner. Her dislike of Tresemme Revitalize shampoo seemed to be the fact that, in her opinion, it encourages oiliness, but the conditioner doesn't ...
