This mattress was fairly inexpensive for a memory foam mattress and I paid something like £300 for it. There was cheaper ones that I could buy but this one had some amazing reviews.
The mattress came rolled up which surprised me as I didn’t see how they could roll up a king size mattress so small and originally I was worried it was a lot thinner than I thought it was. You need to unroll the mattress and then leave it for several hours to expand. It was recommended that I leave it for 24 hours so that’s what I did even though I was desperate to try it out.
Once the mattress had been left for the required 24 hours I put it on my bed and it was a good fit with the fitted sheets etc that I had fitting onto it fine. It has a soft knit cover which is not only lovely and soft but also just gives the bed a more luxurious feel.
The memory foam is absolutely amazing and so super comfortable. I cannot stress enough just how comfortable that I find this. I used to wake up with a sore back and sometimes with sore muscles but not anymore I don’t. It gives a lovely feeling of comfort and I do feel like I am just falling into it but at the same time it is a medium firmness which was important as I don’t like my mattresses to be too soft. It has a 7 zone support in it which basically just means that it supports the different parts of your body comfortably and it does work for supporting the body and making sure that you don’t wake up with aches and pains.
One of the best things about this mattress for me personally is that it supports both my husband and I. What I mean is that with the old mattress if he got up in the middle of the night for a pee and vice versa it would usually wake me up and I could feel the bed moving but now with this mattress my side barely moves if my husband gets up or if he is fidgeting.
We have had the mattress for a while now and it is still just as comfortable as it was when we first got it and hasn’t lost it’s shape or become dipped in any way. For me this was worth every single penny and if something were to happen to it I would gladly buy it again and pay even more money for it if I had to as it really is that comfortable.
The trackpad on my laptop is ok but I much prefer using a mouse. I have a wired one but I saw this when browsing on Amazon and decided to treat myself to it as I thought it would be easier having something that was wireless rather than something that needed to be plugged in with wires because wires always end up getting in the way.
The mouse is made by Logitech and it was pretty cheap. It is currently for sale on Amazon for £9.99 but when I bought it the price had been reduced to £7.99. Less than £10 is a really good price to pay for this mouse though.
I have a Chromebook and I was a little worried that it might not work with it because although I love my Chromebook I have found that quite a lot of things that work with Windows aren’t compatible with it. Luckily it worked absolutely fine and there were no problems with setting it up.
It comes with a tiny little nano receiver that you plug into your USB drive and this is what controls the mouse. It was just a case of plugging it in and then that was it really it worked pretty much straight away and I didn’t need to download any software or anything for it which was a relief as I am pretty useless at things like that.
The mouse needs a battery to work which comes with the mouse and the battery is supposed to last for up to a year before it needs replaced.
I find that my Chromebook is so much easier to use with the mouse rather than the trackpad. It is so much smoother scrolling through web pages and using the mouse to click and highlight things on the screen. The mouse is very tactile to use and clicking on it works the first time so I don’t need to click on a link to get it to work. I have had no problems with the mouse and it works perfectly well each time and is instantaneous when I click or move the mouse the icon on screen also moves at the exact same time.
It works on most surfaces including the arm of the couch but it does work best on a smooth surface such as a mouse pad. Other surfaces are fine but there is the occasional time on the couch arm where it doesn’t register that I am moving it. This is understandable as my couch arm is quite a thick fabric that isn’t that smooth.
TresBizz is an online shop in which computing and office supplies can be bought - mainly internal items are available such as software for image editing etc however you can also purchase ink. It was established in 2012 and physically operates in The Netherlands, India and Morrocco however ships to a range of locations worldwide. The business is still growing however is well established so far and already has a good reputation.
It offers a range of different software packages such as operating systems, office 2010/2011 etc, image manipulation, file makers, anti virus and general internet security as well as servers. It sells Xerox ink cartridges too.
TresBizz sells it's products mainly in euro however you can select the currency option which applies to you best at the top left corner of the website. Prices are fair and shipping costs are reasonable. For my office I ordered an operating software, as my work computer was not equipped with such programmes. I found shipping efficient, delivery fast and communication great when tracking the whereabouts of my order.
There were no issues and I found them easy to contact with queries I had.
The only thing about the brand that isn't so great is their site. It is laid out quite sloppily with minimal information provided and minimal use of colour settings etc. I don't find it overly welcoming and you do have to search around to correctly navigate where you are wanting to go on the site. It does have some useful features though, such as the ability to have an account and store a wishlist within this account, and above all information is a search bar in which you can look for whatever you have came to buy. They do have a 'blog' also which has remained without posts for quite some time, which can give the illusion of a careless company without much concern to interact with the custom it strives for.
It just isn't aesthetically pleasing and could be offputting to potential buyers if they are fussy and looking for a more welcoming company. As far as product quality, pricing, ordering and shipping go though it is a fantastic brand and definitely one I would recommend.
I came across this toy at a bargain dog products stall while visiting the local car boot sales on a Sunday. I thought it was a fairly random concept for a toy, but once I bought it and brought it home my German Shephard really enjoyed the mental and physical stimulation it provided!
I didn't expect that she would understand how to use it, hence why I only paid £5 for it despite it being round £25/30 online but she really took to it and has acquired many hours of enjoyment from it since I bought it! She and my other Collie Cross boy have a lot of fun playing together with it, and watching the relief and joy on their faces when they get a treat from it never gets old! It's a real classic toy - different but a very unique invention.
When first opening the toy it is up to the owner to fill with treats/dry food. To reap the benefits of it they must dislodge the removable bones and move the slideable covers to unlock the treats. It is a simple concept but takes the dogs a while to figure out.
The slideable covers and removable bones aren't easily manipulated either - the dog has to know what it's doing, it can't be done by chance. I did have to help my smaller dogs with it but they all seemed equally delighted with their rewards!
The product is noted as appropriate for all sizes of dogs but I believe large/medium breeds seem to have the most success. The wood is slightly heavy and just might not be so easily manoeuvered by the likes of a Yorkshire Terrier or Chihuahua.
I was intruiged by this product overall anyway and plan to investigate more into the Company of Animals as it seems like a really unique brand with ideas to look out for.
I adore this baby toy - it is one of the best on the market for combining fun, education and affordability while maintaining style and comfort. It is a very sound investment to make as a parent if you want to give your baby the best start to his/her younger years, without breaking the bank.
It is recommended for children above 6 months up until 3yrs, although older children can still reap enjoyment from the toy. At £29.99 it is available in most baby shops and general stores such as Argos and Amazon, as well as being able to be bought directly from Fisher Price. Fisher Price is a very good brand for all things baby related and I believe this toy is one of their best innovations. I would recommend possibly looking for the toy from their site first, as if they have an offer on you may get it discounted for purchasing another toy at the same time.
Unfortunately the toy does require 3 AA batteries which can be expensive to keep up providing if your child is likely to use it to excess however the first set of batteries comes free with the toy, and it is worth it!
The educational factors of the toy are fantastic as the puppy comes with a light up bone collar to help your child learn music, ten songs for your child to sing along to, teaches your baby about the alphabet, parts of the body and counting and also has labelled features to help your child learn about parts of the body. Children are advised to have toys like these to help with early brain growth and development and I believe this toy is good since the cuddly, soft exterior of the toy means the child can also have fun whilst they learn. The puppy has some very funny sayings which make my child laugh non stop, which is a truly beautiful thing to hear!
The toy is very pleasing aesthetically and my daughter will almost always choose this toy first when she comes downstairs in the morning. I enjoy bonding with her over the toy and find it a valuable part of both of our lives.
If you don't already have this toy for your child, I think Santa would be a great person to bring it for them as Christmas nears! 'Laugh and Learn' is truly the perfect description of the toy.
The Creightons Perfect Brunette Shampoo is a low price, low quality brand of shampoo for your hair which can be obtained somewhere cheap such as the pound shops. I found it suitably impressive given the fact it was £1, as I was expecting with being so cheap it wouldn't work very well at all. I only used it as a quick substitute for my usual shampoo as I was last minute holiday shopping for September and had to grab it last minute - but it did the job.
Creightons wasn't a brand I had used before however I would recommend it to anyone on a budget who isn't that concerned with the look/feel of their hair as long as it is clean. The shampoo left my hair free of grease and feeling beautifully clean, but I feel personally that it was the conditioner I use that gave it softness and shine.
The bottle was 200ml which was reasonably sized and full of the shampoo. It lasted me the whole 2 weeks I was on holiday, as the actual shampoo was quite thick and lathered up really well so I had no need to use a lot of it at one time. It was a dark brown colour, similar to my own hair and had quite a minimal scent, but it was pleasant enough. I applied it as normal - to my wet hair, left on for 2-3 minutes as I normally would then rinsed. It was very bubbly and took a bit of extra work to rinse out but this wasn't that bad. I didn't feel like my hair looked any browner or anything once dried, and found there was no dramatic change in thickness/texture of my hair either. The shampoo doesn't dye or stain hair or skin.
On the bottle it was written that it is extra moisturising and helps with hydrating hair. I don't suffer with dry hair so wasn't sure that this can be confirmed, however there was no dryness in my hair after use of the product.
I can be prone to having a sensitive scalp, so for this shampoo not to give me so much as an itch and definitely no dandruff was something of a miracle. I switch shampoo's frequently and enjoyed the Creightons Perfect Brunette Shampoo as a last minute product.
I didn't think it was special or great, nor terrible and damaging. If I was ever in a situation where I had to use the spare bottle I brought with me (which returned home unused) I wouldn't have to worry about the quality of my hair suffering.
It's a great low level product, but while I can afford better I will stick with those brands.
I own a Gibson SG and have very good views towards it.
The Guitar has 22 frets of wonderfully sounding quality and the guitar feels natural and smooth in your hands. I have never had any problems with the guitar except the replacement of the bottom E string. Obviously depending on your amplifier there is a different sound but the guitar is ALWAYS fun to play.
If you are an AC/DC fan then this guitar is a MUST buy as Angus Young used and uses the same guitar, and after playing it I have to say I see why he picked it and it is generally highly desirable.
So for the guitar nerds, it has 22 frets, its scale Length is 24-3/4", its neck joint location is 19, its plating finish is gold, Neck Pickups: '57 Classic Gold Humbuckers,
Middle Pickups: '57 Classic Gold Humbuckers, Bridge Pickups: '57 Classic Plus Gold Humbuckers, Controls: 2 volume, 2 tone, 6-way chicken head, Strings: Brite Wires .010-.046, Case Interior: plush, Case Exterior: Hardshell with black reptile pattern, Body Species: Mahogany, Profile Solid Guitar (SG).
It is light weight compared to LPs, the body shape is very comfortable, but unfortunately because of the weight being lighter, it tends to have neck-dive issues.
Guitars are very personal things and everyone has their preferences so I can't directly tell you weather it is for you. I know it is definitely good for anyone but weather it is perfect that is for you to decide, so with the information I have given you from my knowledge its up to you to consider if it is for you.
This is provided by work, I am not sure of the exact cost however I have just had a look online and can see that these cost around £20 and it is available from PC and electrical stores and placed such as Amazon & eBay.
To be honest, I didn’t set up the mouse to work with my, our IT team did it (that’s the rules, I didn’t not do it because I am lazy), the mouse comes with the tiny little USB device which is about a third of the size of a normal USB stick. All you need to do is simply plug the USB into one of the ports on the pc tower, this instantly connects to the mouse straight away and you are ready to go.
The mouse does require 1 x AA battery which was included, since using the mouse, I have only needed to change the battery twice which is think is excellent considering it is in use from 9am – 6pm Monday to Friday and I never turn it off when I am not in (and we only use a cheap non-branded too).
My mouse is black in colour, it is glossy around the edges and the centre piece is a matt black, where the palm of my hand would sit there is a Microsoft name and is has quite a simple look to it. The roller ball is a pale grey colour and rolls smoothly, the left and right click are very easy to operate too. I think the mouse feels really comfortable in my hand, the roller ball makes a slight noise when turned and the left and right button also make a click when depressed, I would say this can be a bit annoying, most of our systems are web based so do entail a lot of clicking. To the top of the mouse situated just behind the roller ball, this is normally illuminated green however when the battery is running low, this does turn to red.
As I mentioned earlier, you can turn the mouse off when not in use to try to preserve the lifetime of the battery, there is a little sliding switch on the underside of the mouse. This is also where the battery compartment is.
The mouse is designed to work on any surface, mine is used on a wooden desk and it works fine, you don’t need a mouse mat with this which I really like as my desk isn't the biggest so I don’t want to clutter it with anything else.
Apparently, the mouse has a 2.4Ghz signal which means that it gives a reliable wireless connection for up to 15ft range, I must admit, I have never tested this.
Got recommended this site by my boyfriend and he helped me pick from all the various options - it's nice that you can see how much you are spending as you pick the options because you can keep it in whatever budget you have. Once I put the order through it didn't take long for my laptop to be build and then shipped. I have been using it for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it!
I own this model Samsung and have generally good views towards it. It is small and so I easily could attach it to my wall which is very convenient. All though most people frown upon its size I (which is why I put that in negative) actually view this as a good quality as it can go all most anywhere in my room with no problems.
As mentioned in the advantages it is generally a good quality TV due to its good colors and good picture. Another good quality is that, in my experience, is low maintenance as I have never had to replace it or had it fixed in so far 3 years. Furthermore the bottom panel of commands is sensitive which although isn't necessary due to the remote control is very quick and fun.
There are a few negatives however. Firstly aesthetically speaking I am not going to pretend it is anything special compared to other Television models. And although there are other, newer Samsungs and other brands this particular model isn't amazing HD quality. My next point is that it is reasonably small. I personally view this as good because this is convenient for my non spacious room but many view this as a negative quality, I mean after all the bigger the TV the bigger the picture.
Now, I consider this TV to be reasonably small but to make this review more helpful here are the details:
Item Weight---------4.2 Kg
Product Dimensions--6.3 x 64.3 x 39.6 cm
Screen Size---------23.6 inches
I am lucky enough to live only just under an hour away from London by train and led than that by car so I can easily visit the city. One if my great pleasures in going there is in visiting St James's Park. Every trip to London by me means a trip there if at all possible. It is in Westminster next to the road called the Mall. This road is the one that connects Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace so the park is right in tourist land yet there is always a sense of peace to it no matter how busy.
St James's park is the smallest of the Royal parks in London and easy to find your way around. In the middle there is a large lake. This is home to both a permanent bird population and migrant water birds. There are boards around the edge of the lake helping you to identify what species you might see. There is also a group of pelicans that live there. These are fed by the park keepers every day at two with fish if you want to watch.
Elsewhere in the park there are lots of cheeky and friendly squirrels. My sister had one jump from a railing onto her shoulder. Many people stroke and handfeed them though I am a bit more cautious! I swear the little things pose for pictures. They seem to hold all their cute poses just long enough. They really delight the tourists.
My favourite times to visit the park are Spring when there us a great blossom and bulb display and colourful Autumn but any time of year the park is attractive. There are plenty of benches and free toilets. The restaurant in the park is reasonable but very crowded always. The cabins selling icecreams and coffee are pricey however. The park opens at 5am daily and I recommend it as a breath of fresh air and escape from the Lindon hurly burly
I was FOOLED into changing my break pads and disc by Kwik-Fit £500!!!
What a waste of time, money and frustration – hand on my heart NEVER AGAIN!!
My car is new and only had a few thousand miles, but as soon I heard a slight noise coming from the wheel, I thought of Kwik Fit because of the advertisement around london regarding the PAD guarantee – The armatures that investigated the problem explained that both my Discs and Pads have worn out and needed changing immediately! This through me back and made me think and I eventually agreed to this because they used they’re famous hardline sales phrase “your car is dangerous on the road without the changes”!! The cost was over £500, but as soon as I left the garage there was this squeaking noise from the wheels (again!) which I thought was normal and carried on with my normal duties.
A few days later, the noise got worse so I decided to take this back to the garage and to my bloody surprise the manager said “it’s dust in the pads and discs and all I needed to do was wash it out”, a little fabricated story to give me comfort so I’ll leave quickly. They were very abrupt and impolite to say the least! I complained by online and got the area manager on the phone who didn’t want to hear the problem and said to take it to another kwik Fit who will change the discs and pads and it happened (surprised, me TOO) but, unfortunately happy ever after story didn’t happen with me!
The squeaking noise appeared again after a few months and I complained by phone, nothing happened and then sent another email and no one replied within one week (after service, once you’ve parted with your hard earned money, hey!). I gave up and changed everything with my local garage because I couldn’t bear the noise anymore, which cost another £300 plus !! The AREA manager Trevor called me today, who was not having a good day and started interrogating me for not keeping the pads for him when I changed it, forget the apology and he wasn’t able to help me any further and hang up!
A simple apology and re-check would have gone a Long AWAY!
Kwik FIT – I will pass this onto WATCHDOG to add to their list of many complaints!!
This book presents a horrible conflict for me. On the one hand it is absolutely dreadful, but on the other hand it is oddly readable.
The storyline, which you are all probably well aware of by now, is about a young naive woman called Anastasia Steele, who finds herself madly in love with the enigmatic billionaire Christian Grey. In case you weren't aware, Christian Grey has a fairly serious S and M fetish. Long story short he introduces Anistasia to his interests and she falls madly in love with him.
So far so predictable. Of course the reason this book is so famous is because it is peppered with exceptionally graphic sex scenes. This is one of the reasons that so many people like it, as it is one of the first mainstream best sellers to address this topic in such a graphic and detailed manner. Normally if you wanted to read about fetish sex, you'd have to go to a certain type of shop.
The biggest problem with this book is that it is one of the worst written books I have ever read. E-L James has, in my opinion very little writing talent. She relies heavily on tired cliches, bad metaphors and a really rather annoying ongoing reference to an inner dialogue. The writing is repetitive and dull. In fact if you get bored of reading this book, a more entertaining use of time to find a phrase and see how many times it is a repeated throughout the book.
Close to the atrocious writing, is the horribly antifeminist and misogynistic sentiment of this book. The main female protagonist is your standard princess in an ivory tower, the only difference is that she is not rescued by a knight in shining armour rather a knight clad head to toe in leather. She then enters into what can only be described as an exceptionally emotionally abusive relationship. And that's before we get to the sex.
The betrayal of the fetish world in this book is dreadful. It displays a worrying lack of research which only adds to my previous point about the protagonists unequal and unfair relationship.
Despite this, and despite the hugely predictable outcome of the book and the wider series, I could not stop myself from reading this book through to completion. As much as I hated myself for it I really needed to read to the end to find out what happened to Anna and Christian.
So, in short if you don't mind all of the points I've made above and you're really looking for a bit of a reading which requires no brain power at all then go for it. But there are probably a thousand other books I would recommend before this one.
Tesco apple washing up liquid is available in most Tesco Stores. It is substantially cheaper than many big brands which do a similar job. It is also often on a multi buy deal. So I usually pick up a couple at a time.
The packaging promises amazing grease removal and I would have to agree. I find that this washing up liquid easily compares two more expensive washing up liquid when it comes to removing stubborn grime and grease.
You only need to use a little bit of it to do a standard load of washing up, and for stubborn, dried on food use a little more with some hot water, leave to soak for an hour or so and it comes off in a jiffy.
The packaging also promises that it leaves a sparkling finish, again I would have to you agree. I find that the glasses I wash up using Tesco apple washing up liquid come out with a lovely sparkle, and none of that cloudy appearance that you get with a dishwasher.
This washing up liquid smells lovely. It has a really appley smell which does not smell too sweet or too artificial.
I would really recommend wearing rubber gloves when using this washing up liquid, however as it is quite drying - like most other washing up liquid.
As a slightly odd side bonus, this also makes excellent bubbles when used in its concentrated form for kids. Hours of entertainment on a sunny afternoon in the Garden!
Overall I think this product represents quite a good bargain.
it has taken a while for me to get my confidence up but I am now able to make pastry of most types easily. Before that I relied on Jus Roll and still use it now from time to time when time pressed.
The first thing to remember is that having your pastry ready made and ready rolled may not seem that expensive but it is compared to the cist if making your own wither from packet mix or from your own ingredients. It is also a more expensive option than buying ready made but not ready rolled. The prices may look similar but the package weight of the unrolled is usually greater for the money.
If you are like me to pay for the convenience of this product sometimes then you get a rectangular square of shortcrust for your money. This measures about 35cm by 23 cm. The pastry is rolled up with a parchment like paper inside the box. According to the makers you should remove the product from its fridge storage place about 45 minutes before use and let it sit at room temperature. I must confess that mine is only out of the fridge for about 20 minutes usually and it still works fine. The packet says you can also ready the pastry by putting in tge microwave for ten seconds but I have not tried that. Any leftover pastry can be frozen. I use the paper it is rolled in in the box to wrap it then foil. You van also freeze the whole unopened product box and all and thaw for 2.5 hours before use.
I have always had good results from this Jus Roll product. It is vegetarian and vegan friendly. I recommend it very much as a timesaver.
