Hugo Boss Deep Red Eau de Parfum Spray 11/04/2015

Deeply Lovely!

Hugo Boss Deep Red Eau de Parfum Spray I love perfume and always have a few bottles on the go at the same time. One bottle I received as a gift for Christmas and that I had not used for sometime was the Hugo Deep Red. As stated my bottle was a gift but on doing some research I have found that a 50ml bottle is currently on special offer at £29.95 in Boots. This is quite an expensive perfume but to me it is quite a powerful scent so I find that I only need to use a little for it to last all day. The Deep Red perfume comes packaged in a dark red coloured frosted glass bottle with a sliver lid. To dispense the perfume you simply need to remove the cap to reveal the pump action spray dispenser. The fragrance of this perfume is described as Oriental and is quite a strong scent made up of the following: Top Notes – Clementine, Blood Orange and Blackcurrant Heart Notes – Freesia, Pittosporum and Ginger Flower. Base Notes – Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Vanilla. I tend to use this perfume as an evening fragrance as it is quite strong with the base notes certainly dominating. There is some slight fruitiness to the scent but sandalwood is the most noticeable fragrance. One thing I love about this perfume is its longevity, a few sprays will last the entire evening and still smell beautiful on my skin without the need for me to top it up. Overall this is quite a high end perfume with the hefty price tag but if not using every day then it is worth it as a little really does go a long way. For me it is perfect for evening wear ...

Argos online!

argos.co.uk When I am looking for a product for my home one place I normally always looks is www.argos.co.uk. The range of items they sell is rather phenomenal and there is not much you cannot purchase from there website now from homeware to jewellery to toys. There website is very easy to navigate around by either using the tabs to go straight to the relevant department or by using the ‘search’ facility. I have used the Argos website several time but recently to purchase a new office kettle. After a quick search in the toolbar for ‘kettle’ I was presented with a whole list of different ones. I was able to narrow my search quickly and found a kettle in the sale. As I wanted to pay cash for the kettle rather than to purchase it on my card from the website I opted to place my postcode into the website and clicked on the ‘check’ button to check the stock levels at my local stores. It then listed all of the stores in order of distance to me where the kettle was in stock. I then simply reserved my item for collection. Almost seconds after I reserved my item I received a text message to my mobile phone with my reservation number on. I was then able to pop into the store and give my reservation number to one of the checkout staff members, pay for my kettle and collect it very swiftly. You obviously can also pay for items on the website and have them delivered to your home address. I am quite lucky that I live close by to an Argos store so always reserve items and collect them if they are ...

Whiskas Adult Complete Tuna & Vegetables 09/03/2015

Thinks biscuit!

Whiskas Adult Complete Tuna & Vegetables My cat has a sensitive tummy and as much as I always intended on feeding her a dry diet this didn’t go to plan. Too much biscuit upsets Tink’s tummy so she has wet food with a small sprinkle of dry food with her evening feed to give her a little variety in taste and texture and to help protect her teeth. I normally purchase this Whiskas dry complete food which comes in chicken or this tuna flavour. This Whiskas dry food is available to be purchased from Sainsbury’s priced at just £1.00 for a 340g box. One of these boxes will last me about 3 weeks as I only feed Tink a small amount per day but if it was her sole diet I would be using around a box per week. The food comes packaged in a cardboard box which has a small flap opening which can be pressed back shut. On the box you can find all the detailed product information including feeding guidelines and nutritional information. It states that this food contains taurine to helps support a health hear, oils for a shiny coat, vitamin A for good eye sight and has a special ingredient to help to keep your cats teeth clean and healthy. It also claims to be gentle on cats urinary tract as dried food is known to potentially cause problems for cats water works if fed as the sole diet. The food itself is made up of small biscuits which are different shapes and colours. My cat isn’t fussy at all with this food and eats all of the different biscuits and most importantly seems to really enjoy them. I can even feed my cat a few pieces of ...

Groupon

groupon.co.uk Voucher websites seem to have become quite popular in recent times and one of the first was Groupon. This website offers people the chance to buy products and services from retailers at a reduced price. I have used Groupon several times to purchase meals out, beauty treatments and goods and have so far been very impressed. You can access the Groupon website at www.groupon.co.uk or download the app onto your mobile phone or tablet. Each day you can view the different deals available. These deals are usually at a discounted rate to the retailers normal prices to entice you to purchase items, try restaurants, leisure activities, beauty treatments, holidays etc for the first time. To make deals easier to find you can enter your location so that the website/app sorts the deals to ones that are closest to your local area. Once you select a deal you can pay for it on your debit/credit card and are then emailed a voucher. The voucher will contain all the information you require to redeem your purchase. I love Groupon mainly for trying different restaurants and beauty treatments. I recently purchased a shellac manicure for just £10 and a two course Indian meal for 5 people for just £30. Occasionally there will also be additional discounts, for example an extra 15% off or £5 off a £30 spend. Just like with anything I buy I try and do my research first, if there is a deal for a restaurant I have not heard about I will pop it into google and check reviews etc before. I will also ...

onepoll.com 04/03/2015

Onepoll survey site

onepoll.com I am registered on quite a few survey and review websites and find them really good for earning a few extra pennies in my spare time. I registered with onepoll a couple of years ago and at first didn’t pay it much interest but have used it much more in the last few months. Anyone can register to use this website at www.onepoll.co.uk to take surveys to earn a cash amount. Each survey earns between 5p and £1.00 depending upon the length and content. Once you have reached the payment threshold of £40.00 you can request a BACS or paypal payment. To be able to take surveys you simply need to log into your account and if there are any available they will be listed alongside there cash value. You can occasionally be screened out of a survey in the first few questions but unlike some survey sites only limited information is required to see if you are eligible for the survey. Surveys are based on all sorts of subjects from food, health, work, current affairs etc. Some surveys are only one question long while others can take quite a few questions and a few minutes to complete. The longer the survey the higher the cash reward for completion. What is good about these surveys is that it tells you how much of the survey you have completed as a percentage as you work thought it so you always no roughly how many questions you have left. Once a survey is completed your cash reward is credited straight to your account which you can see along a bar at the bottom of your account page. I ...

Calvin Klein CK IN2U Her Eau de Toilette 01/03/2015

CK Fragrance!

Calvin Klein CK IN2U Her Eau de Toilette Just before my holiday last year my husband treated me to a couple of new bottles of perfume one of which was the Calvin Klein CKIN2U Her. This was on special offer in Boots for the bargain price of £20.00 for a 150ml bottle. This eau de toilette comes packaged in a glass bottle which is partially covered in a white plastic sleeve with the Calvin Klein logo on the front. The design of the bottle is quite simple and contemporary but still looks attractive sat on my dressing table. The bottle has a small pull of plastic lid which reveals a pump action spray dispenser. I love the fragrance of this eau de toilette as it is beautiful and light so is just perfect for everyday wear. I tend to wear this fragrance for work as it is not too overpowering, the notes that make up this fragrance are as follows; Top note - pink grapefruit, bergamot Middle note - orchid and white cactus Base note - red cedar and vanilla You can pick up the combination of the fruity and floral notes which work perfectly together with the added sweetness of the vanilla which does come through but does not overpower the other fragrances to make it sickly or too sweet which it can sometimes do in other scents. I have had some lovely comments about this eau de toilette when I have worn it. You do need to apply a few sprays but I have had my bottle for a couple of months now and use it around 2-3 times per week and still have some left so it works out fantastic value especially if purchased on special offer. ...

Armani Code Femme Eau de Parfum 01/03/2015

Beautiful Armani Code!

Armani Code Femme Eau de Parfum I like to spritz a little perfume on every day as not only do I like to smell nice but it also makes me feel good. Although I have few perfumes in my collection some like this Armani Code for women are on the expensive side so for this reason I keep it for a special occasion. It is also quite a heavy scent more suited for evening or occasion wear. I purchased my Armani code for women on special offer some time ago but it is currently priced at £43.50 for a 30ml bottle in Boots. You can also purchase it in a 50ml or 75ml bottle too. The perfumes hourglass shaped bottle itself is very chic and glamorous being made from a purple tinted glass which gets darker in colour until it reaches the black plastic lid. On the front of the bottle is a floral ace pattern giving it a pretty but elegant look. Once the cap is removed there is a spray dispenser which ensures you get nice light sprays of the fragrance. As stated previously this is quite a strong/heavy fragrance being made up of the following scents: Top Notes – Jasmine, orange Heart Notes – orange blossom Base Notes - honey vanilla It is a fruity fragrance but with the addition of the honey and vanilla adding the sweetness it makes it quite a powerful combination. I would imagine that some people would find this fragrance quite overpowering but I love it. For me it is perfect for wearing in the evening for a special occasion and it is strong but if applied sparingly it smells wonderful. I find that just 2/3 sprays are enough ...

Cif Multi-Purpose Actifizz Ocean Spray 01/03/2015

Lacking fizz!

Cif Multi-Purpose Actifizz Ocean Spray I am not brand loyal when it comes to cleaning products and will purchase what is on offer. My local Tesco Express store recently had a stock clearance and one of the products that was reduced was the Cif actifizz multipurpose ocean fragrance spray priced at just 69p for a 700ml bottle, this normally retails at around £2.50 a bottle. I have use the Cif cream cleaner for years and love the results you get from it so I had quite high hopes for this product. On the front of the bottle it states that it ‘removes daily dirt’ and leaves ‘a sparkling clean home’. On the back of the bottle it gives more information about how the product works stating that it cuts through all daily dirt and has ‘lift action’ technology that fizzes through and removes dirt. It states that this spray is suitable for the kitchen and the bathroom and to use this cleaning spray you simply need to spray onto the surface, leave for a few seconds and wipe away. I have used this spray in my kitchen and have been really disappointed with it. Firstly when I sprayed it over my work surfaces there was certainly no fizzing action. There were a few bubbles but the spray appeared more like just plain water, also making it hard to see where I had even sprayed it as I have black work surfaces. I left the spray on for a couple of minutes and some dirt did lift off with a damp cloth but I had to use a bit of elbow grease to remove some other marks that certainly didn’t ‘fizz’ off. I was quite impressed with the ...
