Having a cat, dog and child seriously takes its toll on the carpets in the house. Dirt, hair, crumbs and all other manner of disgusting grime gets stuck in the piles so when it comes to a vacuum cleaner I want to make sure it does a great job. Lucky for us, the guys at AO.com were on the lookout for someone to review the Hoover Velocity Evo Reach and we were in need of a new vacuum so it was perfect timing.
I love houseplants, I think they make any room look pretty and feel fresh. I have a wonderful green, leafy one in the living room that we all love but I have a slight problem – I’m a bugger for forgetting to water them. Luckily, I’ve been sent the answer…Plantpal Watering Globes!
Don’t you just love things that make your life even that little bit easier? Even the simplest things excite me such as this apple slicer and these silicone baking cups I was sent to review (and offer as a giveaway). Here are my thoughts on both.
One of the hardest parts of becoming a vegan is dropping the cheese and most vegan cheeses don’t quite hit the spot but they’re pretty good. Christmas in the past was a cheese lovers dream in this house so having none this year was looking disappointing. But last night I had the chance to try the new Violife Christmas Dairy Free Platter and here are my thoughts.
When it comes to watches my husband doesn’t really have much luck. Unfortunately he has very sensitive skin and when he buys a new watch not long after wearing it, his skin becomes sore and irritated. Over the years we’ve tried everything from titanium (because our wedding rings are made from it and he has no issue with that) to even getting him a fitbit but with no luck. He felt doomed to never be able to wear a watch again. So when the guys at Jord Wooden Watches got in contact with me asking if I’d like to review one I jumped at the chance of hoping to find him a men’s watch that he could actually wear.
I’ve recently moved home and with a new home comes the ability to decide on your colour schemes for each room, as the kitchen is MY room I decided I wanted to inject colour into it. I’ve got brightly coloured utensils and have been on the look out for a quality knife set to match. I’ve been a little cautious about these being a gimmick and have no real functionality in the kitchen. When I was offered a set of these Skenda knives to review I jumped at the chance to give them a whirl.
