Sensodyne Gentle Whitening Toothpaste 20/10/2014

Sensitive toothpaste

Sensodyne Gentle Whitening Toothpaste After a rush trip to the dentist a few weeks ago fearing my filling had fallen out I was advised that I was actually suffering from some sensitivity. I was recommended to purchase some toothpaste specially designed for sensitive teeth and came across some sensodyne gentle whitening toothpaste reduced to clear in my local Morrison’s store. I paid just £1.08 for a 100ml pump action tube of this toothpaste from Morrison’s and have since found out that this normally retails for around £4.00 so I got quite a bargain. Sensitivity occurs when there is wearing of the tooth’s enamel which is caused by food and drink, brushing or gum recession. This toothpaste states that it contains all the benefits of regular toothpaste as well as ingredients to help strengthen teeth and prevent sensitivity as well as removing stains and restoring natural whiteness. The toothpaste also contains fluoride and has a minty taste. The toothpaste I purchased came packaged in a pump action tube but it is also available in a regular squeezable tube too. I had no problems dispensing this toothpaste as one press of the pump gives you just the right amount you need. The toothpaste is white in colour and has a pleasant minty flavour which isn’t too strong. The only real criticism that I have for this toothpaste is that it doesn’t really froth up very much which makes it difficult to feel if it is reaching all around your mouth. As far as the toothpaste goes for protecting against sensitivity I have been ...

Palmolive Antibacterial-Plus Liquid Handwash 16/10/2014

Germ fighting handwash

Palmolive Antibacterial-Plus Liquid Handwash One thing you will always find in my bathroom and kitchen is a bottle of antibacterial handwash as I like to keep germs at bay. I am not brand loyal at all to a particular handwash but like to find one that has good germ killing properties and is good value for money. Therefore my last purchase was of the Palmolive hygiene-plus fresh handwash.   I paid just £1.00 for a 300ml bottle of the handwash from my local Tesco store where it was on special offer.   The handwash comes packaged in a clear pump action bottle allowing you to see the blue liquid handwash inside. It is very easy to dispense by pressing the pump which gives a blob of the soap perfect for washing your hands. There are no directions for use on the bottle but I think this is pretty self explanatory.   I have used this handwash frequently for the last 2/3 weeks and have been very impressed with it. Not only does it clean my hands thoroughly but also leaves them smelling lovely and fresh. I cannot obviously see if the anti-bacterial action works but have to take this for granted and trust that the product does what it states it does as I use this in my bathroom and in my kitchen to wash my hands before and during cooking.   Overall I have been impressed with this hand wash it cleans my hands well, leaves them smelling and feeling fresh. I have also had no skin irritation and my hand feel soft after use. I would certainly recommend this hand wash and would purchase again especially if it was on special offer as it ...

Pets at Home Non Clumping Wood Pellet Cat Litter 13/10/2014

Woody Cat Litter!

Pets at Home Non Clumping Wood Pellet Cat Litter Owning a cat especially an indoor cat means that cat litter is a necessity. Having tried several different types, I and my cat prefer to use the wood based pellet cat litter and I have purchased the pets at home version several times now as I like the fact that I can buy it in large bags. This cat litter can be purchased from the pets at home stores or on the website www.petsathome.com. The litter comes in two different sized bags, 15 litres for £6.99 or 30 litres for £8.99. There is currently a special offer online to purchase two 30 litre bags for £16.00. The litter itself is made from biodegradable wood formed into small pellets, it states on the bag that the litter contains no additives or glues and is environmentally friendly. I prefer to use this type of cat litter as my cat tends not to scratch and spray it out of her litter tray as much as the standard cat litter and it does not create nearly as much dust. It also has quite a pleasant pine scent which seems to keep odours at bay as it is very absorbent. My cat also seems very happy with this cat litter and doesn’t hesitate to use her litter tray for all of her toileting needs when I use it. Overall I have been very impressed with this cat litter, it is absorbent, keeps odour at bay and is long lasting. I tend to remove solid waste from my cats litter tray on a daily basis and fully change the tray twice per week. The large bags also mean that I don’t have to purchase litter as often. For me and my cat this ...

Mars Whiskas Pouch Simply Steamed Fish 13/10/2014

Fishy Whiskas!

Mars Whiskas Pouch Simply Steamed Fish I have always fed my cat Whiskas as this is the one food that keeps her tummy happy and settled. I usually by the Whiskas grilled variety packs but occasionally to give my cat a variation I will purchase the steamed fish selection which she also enjoys. Most of the larger supermarkets stock the Whiskas steamed fish selection which comes in boxes of 12x85g pouches. These vary in price from £4.75-£3.00 if on special offer. I always shop around for my cat food as there is normally at least one supermarket with offers on at any one time whether this be a discount or multi-buy. The steamed fish selection contains the following flavours, salmon, whitefish, sardine and tuna. It states on the box that this food provides a complete diet for your cat with the food containing all the vitamins and minerals needed. It also states that the food contains no artificial flavourings or preservatives. On the box you can find a feeding guide for your cat depending upon age and weight. My cat is female, 18 months old and around 3.5-4kg in weight. I follow the guidelines and feed Tink 2 pouches per day and 20g of the Whiskas dried food too. My cat seems satisfied with this amount of food and is maintaining a healthy weight. The pouches are easy to store and open, I simply squeeze the food straight from the pouch into my cats bowl, I did use to break it up with a fork but my cat really isn’t bothered and too eager to just start eating. I wouldn’t say the food looks particularly appealing but my ...

Sainsburys Basics Wrapping Foil 23/09/2014

Cheap wrap!

Sainsburys Basics Wrapping Foil For cooking I tend to purchase more expensive thicker foil but for just wrapping sandwiches or bits of leftover food to store in the fridge I will buy a basic wrapping foil. On my last trip to Sainsbury’s I purchased a roll of there basics wrapping foil which was priced at £1.15 for 30metres. This is wrapping foil is more expensive that other supermarkets economy versions but there rolls are usually smaller. Personally I get through quite a lot of this type of foil so having a larger roll was fine with me. This foil comes in quite a basic cardboard box with the Sainsbury’s basic logo on the front and a serrated edge allowing you to dispense the foil easily without it tearing. I use tend to use this foil just for wrapping especially for sandwiches which I make daily for mine and my husbands packed lunch or covering leftover food that I am refrigerating. For this use I have had hardly any problems at all with the foil as it keeps my sandwiches/leftovers protected and fresh, it does occasionally tear but it think that is mainly down to me being clumsy. I have when I have ran out of other foil occasionally used it for cooking but will use 2-3 layers as if I don’t the foil will tear easily when I try and move the meat or item I am cooking or fat or juices will seep through a single layer of the foil. Overall I think this foil is perfect for what it is intended for as a wrapping foil but if you are requiring foil to line a baking tray then you certainly need to purchase a more ...

Mars Whiskas Pouch Simply Grilled Meat 21/09/2014

Meaty Whiskas!

Mars Whiskas Pouch Simply Grilled Meat My cat has been fed Whiskas since I got her at just 8 weeks old. Having never owned a cat before and getting her as a surprise I was not very prepared and had to rush out to purchase food. Whiskas was a brand that I had always been aware off so I opted to feed this brand of food to my cat and have never looked back with her now being fed the simply grilled meat, fish or poultry selections with my cats favourite being the meat variety. Most of the larger supermarkets stock the Whiskas grilled meat selection in either boxes of 12x85g pouches ranging from £3.00-£4.75 depending upon offers or 40x85g box ranging from £10.00-£11.49 again depending upon special offers. The meat selection contains 4 different flavours, beef, lamb, chicken and duck. The food comes packaged in individually foil pouches to help keep it nice and fresh. On the box you can find all the detailed information about the food including nutritional information and feeding guidelines. It also states that it contains no artificial flavorings and preservatives and has all the protein, vitamins and minerals a cat requires. As my cat is an adult cat now the recommended feeding guidelines are 2 pouches per day with 20g of biscuit. This is what I have been following and my cat has maintained a healthy weight and seems satisfied with the amount she is fed. I have been very happy with this food, my cat is happy and healthy with a glossy coat and bright eyes. I know that a lot of people favour a dried diet for there ...

Good Girl Teasers Crinkle Wand 21/09/2014

A bit fishy!

Good Girl Teasers Crinkle Wand I have an indoor cat and although she always seems quite content and happy she loves to play and I try and purchase her different toys to keep her entertained and prevent boredom. One toy that I purchased her for Christmas was the good girl teasers crinkle wand. I purchased the crinkle wand from Asda where it was priced at just £1.00 which I thought was rather a good bargain as toys of this nature in pet shops are normally at least double this price. The toy is made up of a large material fish with soft velvet feeling fins and head and a crinkly body. The fish is suspended on a piece of cord attached to a wand allowing you to dangle the fish in front of your cat to ‘tease’ them and encourage them to pounce and try and catch the fish. My cat loved this toy and thought it was great fun trying to catch the fish when I dangled it near her especially as it made a rustling noise. But unfortunately this toy was fairly short lived. As much as I tried to out smart my cat and move the fish quickly enough for her not to catch it she is very fast and a couple of times she was quicker than my reflexes and caught the fish in her claws! It was on the 3rd time that my cat proved stronger than the fish and actually snapped the cord holding the fish onto the wand. Overall if this had been stronger then I think it would have been great but my cat isn’t very big and it didn’t take much for her to break it. This maybe better for a smaller kitten but then the large size of the fish may but ...

House Of Fraser, Department Store 14/09/2014

Shopping House!

House Of Fraser, Department Store My local House of Fraser store is located in Nottingham in the Victoria Shopping Centre. It is spread over 3 floors, selling women’s and men’s clothing and homeware, there is also a café. I am a regular shopper in the store as I do tend to quite like my designer clothing. The store itself is fairly well laid out with women’s clothing being located on the ground floor along with handbags, accessories and a perfume/makeup section. On the first floor you can find more ladies fashion and menswear and on the 2nd floor homeware and the café. I think the only negative is that each brand section tends to have its own staff and own changing room facilities so it can sometimes be a little difficult to work out which staff member to ask for help with items and which changing rooms to use. Other than this I have always had pretty good customer service and have been happy with all my purchases. My last purchases were a new waterproof mac and a dress both of which were in the sale with 30% off. In fact there is often sales or special weekend brand discount events on which are worth looking out for as I think if you see something you like and can be patient there is discount on most items at some point. I think some people avoid house of fraser as it is seen as quite an expensive place to shop and I will admit some of the brands and items for sale are rather on the pricey side with brands such as Hugo Boss and Paul Smith being on sale in my local store. But there are other high street ...

Sainsbury's Cat Milk 14/09/2014

Cats Whiskas!

Sainsbury's Cat Milk My cat is 18 months old now and when I first got her as an 8 week old kitten I purchased a large amount of kitten milk for her to drink to help her to grow and obviously as cats love milk. Now she is an adult cat I tend to only buy her an occasional cat milk as a treat and one that I purchased recently is the Sainsbury’s own cat milk. I paid just 55p for a 200ml carton of the cat milk from my local Sainsbury’s store which was excellent value in comparison with the branded cat milk that you can buy. The milk is packaged in a small cardboard carton with a plastic screw top lid on the top of the carton allowing you to be able to pour the milk out easily and then to replace the lid to keep it fresh. On the carton you can find detailed information about the milk including ingredients listings, storage instructions and serving sizes. It also states that the milk is lactose reduced which is important as cats tummies can be very sensitive to lactose hence why it is not advisable to feed cats normal cows milk. I store this milk in the fridge once opened and each carton provides 6 servings. The milk itself looks just like our milk if not slightly thicker in consistency. My cat loves this milk and laps it up as soon as it hits her bowl. Although my cat has quite a sensitive stomach this milk does not seem to have had any adverse effect on her. Overall I have been very impressed with this cat milk. In my opinion it is just as good as the leading brand but half the price, comes in a ...

Candy Crush Saga (iPhone) 25/06/2014

Candy Crushing!!

Candy Crush Saga (iPhone) When I got my first iphone I promised myself that I would not download gaming apps and waste valuable hours of my time playing them. But then came the requests from my friends to download Candy Crush Saga to send them extra lives…6 months later I am now on level 382!! Candy Crush Saga is a puzzle game where you must match 3 or more of the same coloured blocks to complete levels. There are currently over 400 levels with each one requiring you to complete different tasks in a set number of moves. Matching 4 or 5 coloured blocks together creates special candies which can cause explosions and the removal of more blocks to help you to complete levels. Candy Crush is a free game to download and I personally have completed all 382 levels without being tempted to spend any money but if you want to you can purchase extra lives, moves and tools to allow you to complete the levels. You are given 5 lives initially and gain a further life every 30 minutes but you can only store 5 lives at a time. If you have a facebook account you are able to connect your candy crush to it and ask your fellow candy crush playing friends to send you extra lives. To avoid having to spend any money on the game it is advantageous to have a facebook account as the levels are split into sections and when you complete a section you require 3 friends to send you tickets to virtually unlock the next section. If you haven’t got a facebook account the only way you can get to the next section is by purchasing the ...
