Do you watch Dragons Den? Then you might have heard of Doddle for dogs. It is a great idea, and I am amazed it has not been done before now. It is a dogs collar with a built in retractable lead (leash) on it. This means it is a normal collar when it’s not walkies o’clock and a matching lead and collar set when it is.
I received this product a while back now, but was unsure what to write. The Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt and Pepper Grinder* looks brilliant on the kitchen table, and is a real space saver. The RRP is high at £29.99 but can be found on Amazon now at £9.95. If I was to pay a tenner for this it’s good, but for Thirty pounds I would have been very disappointed. It is a fabulous idea, yet it doesn’t quite seem to “work” somehow. The bottom of the grinder is the stand, but also the funnel for filling the mills. This means you can’t lose the base, so it gets put back on to the grinder, but then I have to remind my children to remove the base before use.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ( or TMNT as I remember it)– Mutagen Mayhem DVD is due for release by Paramount Home Media Distribution on the 31st of March. Mutagen Mayhem has five episodes from the second season of Nickelodeon’s CGI-animated hit series. In this Season 2 Volume 1, you get to see the gang face new perils including robot foot soldiers, an infestation of mutated squirrels and the ultimate threat; Mutagen Man!
A little while ago I was asked to review Pearl Drops instant white 4D whitening toothpaste. I was happy to give it a go as I hate my teeth, and am less than keen on dentists. The packet has one of those colour gauges and states you can change by two shades in just one week. I held the box to my teeth but decided none of these shades were my colour. Being an ex hairdresser I am used to recognising small changes in tone or colour depth.
Recently I tried out Footner. Its a product I had never heard of that is meant to remove hard skin from your feet. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and it is a weird looking item for sure. They are a sort of plastic trainer-sock shape, with a lining soaked in a strong smelling liquid/gel. The smell isn’t bad but it is a bit chemically.
This week Jen and I have been fiddling about with expertly crafting from a ToucanBox taster box. These are little craft or project kits that come with (almost) everything you’ll need to do a set activity. We got sent this taster kit, also known as the petite. There are 3 size options available, and on the grande and super you can request extra materials so siblings can share. I think this is a fab idea really. I am someone who struggles to choose craft or activity items in the shops. I sort of stare at the shelf hoping that one or two of the sets will just hop into my basket so I don’t have to choose. Sometimes this is made easier by price labels as I love the bargains.
Bring a little bit of festive magic to someone special’s Christmas or New year with this extra-special range of choccy treats. The Snowman and Snowdog are favourite festive TV characters, and these gorgeous models are carefully crafted from Thorntons creamy white chocolate so won’t melt in the morning like snow but I can’t promise they’ll last too long as they are rather tasty!
This week I was sent a JewelCandle in Cinnamon Bun scent. Jewel Candles are handmade scented candles, with an extra bonus. A little way down is a jewel, either a ring or earrings. I’ve been burning it for hours today following my puppy having a little accident so I wanted to hide the smell. (I did of course vax the floor but the smell remained). The scent is lovely, the jar is also lovely, I’m not so keen on the sticky plastic label on the jar as it was stuck on wonky, which I feel makes it look a little cheap. The ring that was in my candle is the narrow ring you see in the photo, the other was already mine. These come in various scents, and suit various occasions such as birthday or Christmas gifts. I would recommend them as gifts for candle fans for a Christmas gift, but […]
Our Freya Woof has “abandonment issues” following being dumped, and ending up stray. When she has company she’s super chilled out, except for the sudden bursts of playfulness. She only plays two or three times a day, and only a few minutes each time – its fair to say my hound is not energetic. The problem comes if we leave the room, or house! If it’s dinner time and we all go to the kitchen table she will probably follow us within five minutes – she doesn’t pinch dinner or even pull the “puppy dog” begging face, she just needs to know where her people (thats us) are. I can’t even peg the washing on the line in the back garden without her trying to chew or scratch her way through the back door, and she cries… Proper crying. She doesn’t stop until her people are back closeby.
Following on from my Planes post earlier today, we have now listened to Disney’s Phineas and Ferb’s rather brilliant album Rockin’ and Rollin’. D is a big Phin&Ferb fan, and was very pleased to listen to this, if a bit disappointed he couldn’t get it in iTunes as the trial copy was stream only, no downloads. In honesty that is the only thing we could put down as a negative, and if we were a paying customer we wouldn’t even have that issue, so it’s a big thumbs up for this album in our house. If you’ve never watched Phineas and Ferb it’s one of the only good modern cartoons (In my opinion, no facts or survey results) as it is an intelligent programme. The soundtrack is out now, and it, well, Rocks! We honestly were laughing whilst listening to this, and unlike the Planes album it does not matter if […]
Little Jen was pleased to be asked to listen to the Disney’s Planes movie sound track. He adores Disney Cars, and was really excited before the release of Disney Planes. It was due to start showing in cinemas whilst we were on holiday camping in Devon, so he INSISTED we took 3D glasses with us. We actually booked it online from a tent, that’s a new experience. He loved it, he was counting down the days until it was showing and then during the end credits he said “Sooooo when are we getting the DVD mum?” but I couldn’t give him a date to countdown to this time! Planes is about Dusty, a crop-dusting plane. He dreams of being a racing plane, like a farmers boy dreaming of being a F1 driver. He dreams of competing in a famous aerial race. The problem? He is hopelessly afraid of heights. With […]
