Dimplex Dakota DKT20 29/11/2014

lovely flame effect attractive fire, does what it says on the tin

Dimplex Dakota DKT20  DECISION TO BUY... I bought this dimplex whitsbrury electric fire lace as a compliment to the central heating about two months ago as i needed a boost to the heating in my lounge, i researched the products available at the time as i was looking for a real flame effect fire which could be freestanding flat against a wall as well as an inset in a fireplace opening, one which was cheap to run and did what it said on the tin so to speak in terms of heating the space it was in quite fast. After much research i decided on this one based on these details... Brushed steel/chrome effect finish Unique optiflame effect Inset or free standing with a spacer kit included Max 2kw output with two heat settings Electric energy source Cost efficient Thermal overload cut-out BEAB & CE Approved PURCHASE... I bought this from b&q on offer at the time for £158.00, the normal price being £199.99, a sucker for a bargain i was pleased with the savings. The fire was supplied in a large strong cardboard box with a plastic handle which was surprisingly light to carry to the checkout considering the size of the box, very large and at least a foot and a half in width. My only concern at this point was if it was was going to fit inside the small boot of my small car!......nope! thank the lord for those folding rear seats, we were on our way home. OPENING/ SET-UP... This product was so easy to open, you just opened the box, removed the padding and lifted the fire which slid out ...

Umc 19/16 27/11/2014

An affordable HD TV/DVD Player that you can rely on

Umc 19/16 I wanted to buy an extra television set for my dining room which my two boys could use to play their games consoles on, for months my main television had been taken over by either one or the other son for gaming purposes, whilst I was glad that I could monitor their usage and make sure they were playing age appropriate games I wanted to watch the programmes that interested me in the comfort of my living room. Having refused to buy them a television set for their bedrooms due to that being more difficult to monitor the type of games they played I decided the best option was to buy one for the dining room so I could both watch my programmes and still monitor the kind of games they played, having shopped around I decided to buy a television that also had an integrated DVD player which I thought would be a useful addition. I bought this UMC HD Ready Digital LCD TV/DVD in January 2011 from Sainsbury's at a price of £119.00 on a limited special offer, I thought this was a very good bargain and admit to it being an impulse buy as I had been looking elsewhere to purchase a TV set, it just so happened I saw this deal and snapped it up as they seemed to be selling fast. Although it was purchased a long while ago now by today's standards it is probably slightly out dated and not modern enough to compete with the technical advancements we see available nowadays, however it is still going strong, works like a dream, is used daily (often nightly too!) and I have never had any problems ...

Oilatum Junior Bath Formula 26/11/2014

The comforting Oilatum junior Bath Additive

Oilatum Junior Bath Formula I started using this product many years ago after having a baby son who developed severe atopic eczema at just a few weeks old, my not so baby son is now 12 years of age and he unfortunately still suffers terribly with eczema at times, it is safe to say i have tried and tested most of the treatments and products available on today's market which claim to "help" people with all dry skin conditions such as eczema but in all honesty this is THE ONLY product I have used consistently throughout the 12 year battle to help keep my son's skin as healthy as it can be. Many people reading this may be wondering why on earth i continue to use a product which has not "cured" my boy's skin condition so I would like to clarify that atopic eczema cannot be cured and can only be managed and controlled effectively by using specially formulated products such as this one, and let me tell you the Oilatum range has been a godsend for me and my family, specifically the Oilatum Bath Additive.... I use the Oilatum Bath Additive on a daily basis as my son still needs a nightly soak in the bath to ease, protect, hydrate, cleanse and soothe his dry skin to help prevent any troublesome sore flare up's, it is every bit an important part of our daily routine and is more of a preventative and maintenance measure for us now rather than a treatment these days, consistent use of this product has without a single doubt played a huge part in controlling my boy's eczema and made life for us all a little ...

Ikea Aneboda Wardrobe 10/04/2012

A Worthy White Wardrobe from Ikea...

Ikea Aneboda Wardrobe Having recently moved home I decided a revamp of the bedrooms was necessary and took the decision to buy new furniture, Ikea has always been a favourite home furnishing store that I regularly visit for a wide variety of items so I knew straight away upon making the decision to buy new bedroom furniture that I would purchase them from Ikea who are in my opinion are a company that is trust worthy, reliable and value for money and they have never let me down in all the years I have shopped there. ==IKEA== My closest Ikea is in the city of Leeds in a well known industrial estate called Birstal, It is a major Swedish retail company selling a huge range of well designed home furnishings at affordable prices, the company has expanded to over 44 countries worldwide and prides itself on supplying home furnishings that are modern but not trendy, functional yet attractive, human centred and child friendly, and represent the fresh southern Swedish lifestyle where people have a reputation for working hard, living on little and make the best possible use of limited resources. ==THE PRODUCT== ANEBODA WARDROBE Designed by- Tord Bjorklund Available in White and Beech and is part of a range of matching products.

Wilko Underbed Storage Box and Lid 10/04/2012

Box Clever Storage...

Wilko Underbed Storage Box and Lid At the beginning of each year I have found I need to find more space for organising items during the big pre-spring clean, finding storage space that is practical and effective can be a difficult task especially if you're like me and you like to have the clutter hidden, stored away, tidied and organised safely but being able to recall where things are should you need or want them again for any reason, I have been slowly organising my home for months now and have found the plastic storage boxes a godsend, especially the underbed variety. ==THE PRODUCT== Underbed Transparent Storage Box with Lid £5.00 each or £12.00 for Three * Depth 40cm * Width 60cm * Height 18cm Wipe clean strong and sturdy plastic Stackable Waterproof Actual colour of lids may vary Available from various Homestores, I purchased three of these from www.wilkinsonplus.com ==IT'S USES== These strorage boxes are exactly what they claim to be, they are very versitile and can be stored anywhere and not just under the bed, I have three under my double bed that contain extra bedding and linen, besides freeing up drawer and wardrobe space this is a practical storage solution as the boxes each have their own lipped lids that click into place which means the lids will always stay fixed on so I can be confident my bedding and linen stay dust free and protected, The capacitiy of each box is impressive, in just one box I have placed several ironed sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers ready to be used when needed. I have ...

Morphy Richards 48732 07/04/2012

The New Chef in Town is Morphy Richards

Morphy Richards 48732 I had been thinking about investing in a slow cooker as everyone I knew seemed to have one and the amount of praise I had heard about them made me curious as to what all the fuss was about, being a busy single mum of two and a full time career I was known to often have the odd moan and grumble with regards to how hard it was to juggle everything into the daily routine and how there was never enough hours in the day to do everything that needed to be done. I wanted to try make some changes that meant I was able to provide my family with wholesome, tasty, healthy, and homemade dishes at least once a day instead of the convenience foods I had become accustomed to with not having enough time to provide them with healthy nutritious meals made from scratch, I had relied heavily on processed foods, microwave meals, fast foods and take away food, this concerned me due to their much publicised connections to various health related issues but I had never had the time to prepare, make and serve evening meals from scratch every day, evenings are quite often pretty hectic for us and we are sometimes lucky to be seated for our evening meals before 8pm! A slow cooker seemed to be the answer to my prayers as a product that promised to make my life easier , that was easy to use and provided my family with lovely nutritious evening meals on a daily basis that was not too time consuming and was reliable. ==THE PRODUCT== I came across this Morphy Richards 6.5 litre Oval Slow Cooker from Argos ...

JML Doktor Power Magic Eraser 05/04/2012

Do You Need A Magic Doktor?....

JML Doktor Power Magic Eraser I was first introduced to the Doktor Power Magic Eraser many years ago whilst I was studying my level 3 qualification as a Nail Technician, My highly respected tutor always had one of these in her “bag of tricks” and introduced us to it on our cleaning rota whilst cleaning the gleaming pure white Nail tables and the stubborn nail varnish marks and various other equipment that tended to become stained with nail art products, I was so impressed with the results and versatility of the Doktor Power Magic Eraser that I decided to purchase one for myself for home use, I have to say that I have never looked back and continue to use this fantastic product to this very day. == THE PRODUCT == The Doktor Power Magic Eraser is a large soft squishy sponge that comes in cardboard packaging in the form of a specially constructed foam block ready for you to cut into your own shapes and sizes to suit your needs, the packaging has some good useful and detailed information on it’s uses.

Lush Soak & Float Shampoo Bar 04/04/2012

Floating Those Flakes Away....with Soak & Float

Lush Soak & Float Shampoo Bar Those of you who regularly read my reviews will be aware of how much of a huge fan I am of Lush's fabulous company and products, they have fantastic moral ethics and actively aspire to reduce our carbon footprint which is highlighted as a very important step to the preservation of our planet now more than ever and people finally seem to be acknowledging just how important this is as it impacts on our future generations and is something Lush takes very seriously, as they not only invent but hand make all their products using only the most natural and safest ingredients to effectively aid and complement our daily cosmetic and hygiene needs and wants with a touch of unique luxury. I have suffered from a dry, flaky and itchy scalp with oily roots since my teenage years which are partly due to various allergies, I have tried every available medicated and prescribed product on the market to try combat and alleviate this annoying itchy problem. Whilst some products worked initially they never worked to even a satisfactory level, the effects never lasted beyond a few days and still left me with un-balanced hair that needed washing daily which was not the results I was hoping for so I was less than happy with my experience with chemical laden products that my GP had prescribed to ease the discomfort of an itchy flaky scalp, I decided to do a lot of researching into product ingredients and I came to the conclusion that using only products that contained natural and safe synthetic ...

Argos Value Range Rechargeable Toothbrush 27/02/2012

Buzzed from this Bargain Toothbrush!...

Argos Value Range Rechargeable Toothbrush I had been struggling recently with getting my youngest son to brush his teeth adequately as he has co-ordination difficulties, I often had to re-brush his teeth for him as he only seemed to manage the sideways action of brushing which did not result in a full clean right to the gums and this often left his teeth only half brushed, at 9 years old I did not want to deflate his confidence as according to him I was "treating him like a baby by brushing his teeth for him!" The teeth brushing routine always took double time and always ended in an argument about him being "too old for me to help him!" I decided to buy him a rotating battery powered toothbrush to try and allow him the independence he craved whilst also ensuring his teeth were brushed adequately day and night. However whilst shopping in Argos I was stood in the queue waiting for my turn to be served and browsing the products on the shelves next to the service desks when I spotted this Argos Value Range Rechargeable Toothbrush, the packaging was pretty plain and basic much like the rest of the Argos value range products, it was selling at £7.99 which I thought was cheap enough as electric toothbrushes can be very expensive, it had to be worth a try so I took a box with me to the desk and purchased one. ==THE TOOTHBRUSH== Once home I opened the box and immediately set it on charge ready to be used that evening as it states it needs an 8 to 12 hour charge, the unit looked of reasonable quality considering the price tag, ...

Brilliance or Bum Squeaks!?

Gangsta Granny - David Walliams My 9 year old son loves reading, and in particularly he adores the David Walliams series of children's books and he can often be found (or heard!) rolling around on the floor not able to speak due to uncontrollable laughter whilst reading these books. I became curious as to what made the books by this author so funny and appealing, so, when I bought my son this book for Christmas I decided that we would read this one together, so I too could enjoy the humorous tales of the mischievous characters created by the well known comedian that is David Walliams. ==ABOUT THE AURTHOR AND THE BOOK== David Walliams is widely known for his popular comic creation and participation in the shows 'little Britain' and 'come fly with me' , but he is also well known for his charitable contributions which include recently swimming the length of the Thames in 2011.

Lush Angels on Bare Skin 23/02/2012

Bare Faced 100% Natural...

Lush Angels on Bare Skin Everyone who reads my reviews will know by now what a huge fan I am of Lush products, in fact of the whole company as well as their wonderful array of gorgeous smelling products, I love their morals and ethics in general. Lush's beliefs are at the heart of everything they do, they only use the best of fresh ingredients and the finest of essential oils buying only from other companies that do not commission animal testing, they make highly effective products from soap to perfume all which are invented by themselves and individually handmade using safe synthetics with the bare minimal recycled packaging or none at all in most cases selling their products naked, this encourages recycling and helps to protect our planet. All the morals of only using fresh natural and safe products combined with a determination to make a difference to change the way we use and buy products in the way they are produced and packaged, products that cater for every need and are mostly unisex and are safe and gentle enough to use on children, their determination and strict rules on animal testing and recycling make them a company in which I trust and adore in all that they do and stand for, to add the shop's staff knowledge and expertise on all the products they sell makes Lush a company I will always go back to... Angels on Bare skin is a product I absolutely love, I have used this product for a number of years now so I think I am able to review the product thoroughly, honestly and balanced with ...

A steamingly Basic face Lift!...

HoMedics MySpa Facial Spa This product is one that was bought for me a while back in the summer (remember summer?) after i had returned from a holiday abroad my skin felt really dry and my pores were enlarged and clogged, no doubt down to the very hot weather,sweating and constantly re-applying of sun screen as i have very fair and sensitive skin that burns very easy and also reacts adversly to most creams, lotions and potions. I believe this Homedics Spa Facial Sauna was from Argos at the time and is still available today to purchase via Argos for £19.99 with the option of an extended warranty purchased separately as is possible for most electrical products from Argos. ==THE PRODUCT== The product comes packaged in a strong cardbord box and also wrapped in plastic, there is instructions included, it is mains operated with a 2.5 meter cable, there is no assembly required as the product is in one whole piece which makes a refreshing change as these type of prducts can come in several different pieces usually for storage purposes with various attachments, this unit comes as one so is very easy to un-package and set-up straght away. The facial sauna is very light and smaller than i expected it to be compared to the bulk of the box! the nice small size comes in really handy though for easy storage, the circular base is made of toughened hard plastic, It has three rubber nodes underneath to prevent from slipping and slidding whilst in use on a flat surface, there is one rubbery power button with an ...

A clever little Multi-use Samsung Digital Camcorder/camera

Samsung SC-DX103 Having never had a camcorder before I decided to take the plunge an purchase one, it was 2009 and I wanted to record and keep the memories of my child’s first participation in his nativity play which involved him singing and dancing the ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ suited and booted with a dicky bow tie, having seen him practicing I did not want to miss a chance to record his very sweet performance.I was looking for a camcorder that was lightweight and compact, one that was very easy to operate and to understand, it was important to me that it should be easy to transfer recordings straight to DVD’s because I have never really been tech savvy so the one I chose definitely had to be very simple to use. After some research I decided to purchase the Samsung SC-DX103 DVD Camcorder in a home shopping catalogue priced at a reasonable £169.99 (2009 price)It was described as a lightweight dvd camcorder and digital camera in one, with the option to record straight to DVD mini disc or onto an SD card, easy set up & record, excellent film and sound quality with easy controls, special features include Lcd backlight, swivel viewing screen, digital photo function, digital effects function, built in lens cap and a wind cut function.

Lush Frog Prince Bath Ballistic 18/02/2012

My Handsome Prince was Hidding in the Bath all this time!...

Lush Frog Prince Bath Ballistic I was bought two of these leap frog bath ballistics for Valentines Day, from my son of all people who knows how I adore lush products and picked me a pair of frogs up at the same time as he shopped for his lucky girlfriend. The Leap frog is a limited edition product that is only available yearly, this year Lush decided to shake the name of the product up a little and rename as the Leap Frog Prince in honour of this year (2012) coinciding with being a leap year and traditionally being the time women can propose to their partners on February 29th. Lush is a company who believe in making products that contain ingredients that DO NOT conduct or commission cosmetic testing on animals and who also invent their own products by making them fresh by hand using very little or no added preservatives or packaging, Lush will always date their products and give the customer information on where and whom by the product was made. ==THE PRODUCT== The Lush Leap Frog Prince Weighs 95g Costs £2.75 Described as ’A fizzy amorous amphibian for a sexy sandalwood, rose and jasmine soak’ (Taken from the Lush news letter) Suitable for vegans This curious and very cute looking bath ballistic comes shaped like a little frog, he is a pale apple green colour and he smells delightfully of sweet jasmine, he has a pair of vibrant red cocoa butter lips that look waxy and soft, he is just over an inch in thickness and sits around three inches tall, intriguingly he promises to deliver you the luck of a special ...
