Magical Melts Small gift hamper

Wax melts are my new favourite thing! A perfect way to make a room smell yummy and be pleasing to the eye at the same time.

We had the pleasure of testing and reviewing a beautiful small hamper from Magical melts ( http://www.magicalmelts.co.uk  ) and it did not disappoint.

The basket came extremely well wrapped and arrived in perfect condition .

Upon opening it you could smell the amazing  wax melts and it filled the room with yummyness. even Max and Tikaani had to come over for a little sniff .

The basket contained the most beautiful little bags filled with very pretty melts containing glitter and we really enjoyed having a sneak peak at all the different designs we had received from flowers to dinisours!

The lovely lady’s over at Magical melts are extremely friendly and quick to reply to any questions or messages you may have via contacted them though facebook ,the website or direct .

They also make items to suit every budget and we are over the moon with our item.

We didn’t need a burner as we already have one and our own candles so they tailored our basket for us.

I also ordered a surprise gift basket for my brother and they are also over the moon with it!!

Every item created my Magical melts is made with love and passion and this relay shows through.

Gifts for any occasion can be made and you wont be disappointed .

 

  • What we thought

We are very pleased with our small gift basket full of yummy smelling wax melts . we already have a large wax melt burner so this for us was not needed with our order.

The melts themselves are small in size( as per our order request) but they are full of flavour .

They take only a few minutes to melt but after they last for a long time and fill the room with a beautiful  scent that is not too over powering or too faint but just right!

We love to sit and watch these melt and couldn’t wait to try them all. The glitter is a beautiful touch as are the shapes .Our favourite time to burn these are during bath time as there is nothing more relaxing them a nice warm bubble bath and the room being filled with your favourite scene.

 

There are lots of options available and orders can be suited to your requests and not forgetting the special offers! every order is hand made and can take upto 7 days to complete the order .

Remember never to leave candles unattended and not to leave wax melts in reach of children and animals.

 

PROMIXX Vortex mixer and upgrade pack

We have been very excited to test and review this product and it most certainly did not disappoint !

There are many drinks bottle and mixers on the market all claiming they have the upper hand against other leading brands and this can become confusing when trying to choose the drinks mixer that is right for you, after all these come in a little more money than the bog standard bottle so it makes sense to find the one that suits you, And that’s what we love about the PROMIXX vortex mixer, Not only is it extremely pleasing to the eye, It also give amazing smooth shakes every single time but we also use it in the kitchen for anything from making frothy kids milkshakes to mixing eggs ! And its pretty popular with the celebs and athletes too .

  • What we found

 

We got stopped everywhere we took this amazing product. its unlike anything we have used before and really is pleasing to the eye.

There is something really satisfying about being able to watch the vortex and we were very impressed at the power this mixer has! we would highly recommend getting the upgrade pack that is USB chargeable and contains a powder storage container, this came in really handy and seemed to kick out a lot more power than my battery’s although battery’s alone where still pretty impressive too.

The drink container itself is a 600ml tumbler with a sports drinking cap lid boasting to be 100% leak proof. we tested this in every way we could think of, from shaking it vigorously to dumping it in our bags and so on but it didn’t spill a drop.

We loved this also as with some drinks products after a few washes they seem to get a funny smell/taste. this DID NOT happen with the PROMIXX ! in fact this beautiful drinks container has been as new every single time ! and we have used it constantly . washing is as simple as filling with water and dropping on drop of washing up liquid inside and turning on . although we also pop inside the dishwasher and haven’t found any problems (removing the base first) .

 

The fact that this is also like having a mini kitchen mixer is also a huge bonus! we love omelets and pancakes in the morning and why have all that extra washing up when the PROMIXX is more than capable of handling it.

We love the deign and power this item has and although  we have the amazing limited edition hot pink there are many more available to suit your preference.

The website states that this item is very popular with athletes and we can see why. perfect smooth shakes every single time!!and with 1 year warranty .

We found the team at PROMIXX to be extremely helpful and quick to reply to any questions we may have .We love this product and cannot recommend highly enough .

TW64 Smart Bluetooth fitness tracker

Fitness trackers and watches have become increasingly popular over the last few years and with prices varying hugely from around £10 into the hundreds it got me wondering are the cheaper brands any good? Yes those top of the range trackers will have more fancy features but what about for the average person looking to just track their day-to-day life .

 

The TW64 looks extremely similar to the fit-bit in appearance but couldn’t be more different when it comes to price, with the fitbit charge coming in around the 70 – 100 pounds mark and the TW64 costing me under £6!!

Charging 

 

The TW64  comes with a USB charging cable. This plugs into a laptop/pc or charging plug, the other end clips onto the fitness tracker making contact with three metal tabs on the underside of the watch .we have found charging for around an hour is enough to last upto 5 days .

 

Fitness app 

 

The TW64 uses the MOVNOW pluss app on android . We have found this simple to use and have found no real issues although it’s not the prettiest of apps it does the job.

 

What we found

 

After receiving this we were very excited to try this out and see if it was as good as other fitness trackers on the market.

Setting this up was extremely easy, just pop it on charge for a little while then your good to go!.

while the instruction manual doesn’t  offer much info with regard to the tracker it does focus a lot on the app and how to set this up. we had no trouble with this as its pretty self explanatory .

The fitness tracker itself is made from TPU Polymer composite materials , this is rubbery to the feel and soft and comfortable  .The clasp is the same as the fitbit charge clasp and all tho we didn’t find this to become loose or undo i would suggest purchasing a clip to keep this in place to be on the safe side .

 

Once charged and the app all set up this is pretty simple to use and understand.

We did not need to reset the time or date as these are already set correctly .

On clicking the screen options there are 5 .

Time,Date and Battery charge.

Pedometer .

Distance walked ect .

Calories burned

Sleep time .

 

We have found these to be very accurate and working smoothly .

The fitness tracker once linked to the app via bluetooth will inform you of text messages received or incoming calls by vibrating two times. You can also set reminders to take a drink, sitting down for to long or for taking medication ect that will also vibrate .

We found the vibration to be good for these things But i did not find this would wake me if i was sleeping so wouldn’t use this for a morning alarm .

You can also take photos using the app and the tracker something we thought was a nice touch .

We found the strap size to be good , fitting both my 11-year-old daughter wrist and mine also no problem with plenty of room for a larger wrist size also.  We loved the colour selection you can get for the watch strap either when  you purchase or purchasing separately online.

 

Overall we love this fitness watch and for day to day tracking it is perfect for us.

 

As much as we would love a fitness watch that included a heart rate monitor , This tracker covers every other area we needed.

Being able to check the app in the evening and seeing the data in an easy to read app is perfect and surprising to see just how far you can walk in a day doing your usual daily activity’s , and the notification for incoming calls and messages is very welcomed indeed!.

 

We would recommend this to friends and family and anyone looking for a tracker for day to day activity’s or jogging ect.

 

We will update this post with any issues we face in the future if needed and pictures.

We purchased this item from ebay with free postage, although it is also widely available online from other sellers and stores

Hotpoint Standard dishwasher FDFAO32121K product review

We have been luck enough to review this item for AO.com so a big thank you to them and please take a moment to check them out and there amazing offers and items

Hear is what we thought ….

We were very impressed when this item turned up for delivery , being in black it oozes class and elegance and looks very smart in the kitchen .
After unpacking and moving into place comes connecting the dishwasher and this really is as easy as it gets , just the same as a washing machine its the water pipe( cold) waste pipe and plug! done in a flash.
Inside the machine are the instructions as well as some leaflets , you also receive two dishwasher tablets and a small bottle of rinse aid that comes in very handy altho some salt also would have been very handy .
The dishwasher its self is very simple to use and the instructions are also very clear and simple to follow . there are two faster wash setting (one around 30 mins and the other around 100 ) but these do not dry after washing , just load the dishwasher (we had to raise the top rack to allow room for plates in the bottom rack ) pop in the tablet,rinse aid and salt and your good to go!
The dishwasher itself is very quiet and has a very clear display screen making it easy to see how long is left for the wash and when washing and drying or to display more salt or rinse aid is needed .dishes will be very hot after a wash or dry so take care but they come out gleaming .
The only downside to this machine we found was the racks on the top level for glasses ect were too week on the joint, one actually came off in my hand while moving it up with barley any force on the first day of purchase but this is still a very useful feature to have .Overall we are extremely pleased with this item and would highly recommend .

Glamous Connection glue on nail Product Review

IMG_20151025_103647

 

 

Hello

 

 

Today we are reviewing Glamous Connection salon quality glue on nails.

 

I’v seen these many times in my local shops and with the average price of glue on nails ranging from £5 – £10 , these at £0.99 got me wondering how well they would do …….

 

HOW TO USE ..

 

Following the instructions on the back of the packet I sort through the 24 nails supplied to find the correct sizes for my nails,  This isn’t as easy as I thought as there are  more larger size nails then for more petite fingers.

Laying them out in front of me I am now ready to start tackling the application. (nails have been cleaned of any left over vanish or dirt/grease ect)

I start by piercing the tip of the glue tube supplied . I find this difficult to actually get the glue from the tube and a little un predictable as to the amount that comes out. !

 

I apply glue to both my nail and the fake nail as this is the only way i find i can get them to stick.

The glue is slow to bond and has to have pressure applied untill set other wise an air pocket formed under the nail and was visible . I found the more glue the better with these nails.

 

How They Did

 

I think its fair to say with these cheaper is defiantly not better .

Within an hour these were chipped and split , I found this very disappointing as the product doesnt seem to be able to stand up to the lightest of use, these didn’t last long enough to even test for washing up and daily use altho none actually fell of within the few hours I had them on ,within the first hour they looked so awful I put gloved on till I could get home and remove them.

I removed these by simply picking them off , Not something I would normally do but they split so easily this took seconds to do.

 

I was left with the glue on my nails that had turned a slight yellow colour (yuk) but this is easily removed with a little file

 

MY THOUGHTS

 

Altho I love a bargain and finding money-saving products these are defiantly not something i will be trying again unfortunatly .
