HEAT HOLDERS

SNUGGLE UP BLANKET

HOT CHOCOLATE  blanket.jpg
Hey guys and girls have a very out of season post here for you.
I say out of season because of the product been for cool/cold days and nights.
Although I did use it last night as a blanket as we slept downstairs for a change.

So I was sent a Snuggle blanket to review via heat holders  at first I thought it is too hot to test a blanket, But then was told by someone it was national picnic month so could be useful to sit on, or even wrap around you if it is a cool evening.



Anyway Hope you enjoy reading the review 
Feel Free to ask any questions you may have.

About Heat holders snuggle blanket


What the website says

Kick back and relax with a Heat Holders luxury premium fleece blanket – perfect for wrapping up
warmly on those cold winter nights. With a 1.4 tog rating, its generous size and incredible softness make it a must-have item for peaceful days at home.
*Please note, there are no electrical components within the Snuggle Ups blankets.



FIRST TIME USING SNUGGLE BLANKET.
Chloe was laying near me on sofa and was a bit cold so asked for blanket so we let her try the new one she warmed up quick and soon fell asleep so took blanket off of her.
she stayed warm for ages aswell so didn't need the blanket again.


Myself and shane then tried out the blanket at bedtime we slept downstairs for a change and the blanket was light so wasn't to heavy but did warm up super quick so i had to keep taking it off
I  stayed warm for ages, so do say the blanket is best for autumn and winter.



What I say about snuggle blanket.


Snuggle blankets are not only thermal and keep you warm.
They are soft to touch and light to carry meaning they are great for all ages.
(not like those old blankets that are thick heavy and scratchy on the skin)
Even though it only has a tog of 1.4 they really do make you warm up really quick.
I think not only are these perfect for picnics or cold nights at home.
I think every car should have a snuggle blanket because 
if you get stranded or break down these will keep you warm until help arrives.




What I liked about the snuggle blanket
I really loved the material so soft on the skin softer than any blanket i've felt before.
I also liked how quick it made me warm up which is great to know for when winter arrives.

What I didn't like about the product
The carry case it arrived in had a rip in.





ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Size : 180cm x 200cm
Tog  : 1.4






Overall Verdict.
Overall I am really happy with the product you could say I have really warmed to it.
I loved the feel of the blanket it is really really soft and lovely doesn't feel rough against the skin.
The product works well it warmed me up quick which is a bonus.

The company Shipped the product quick which was another bonus.
Although There was a few minor delays with the courier itself.

The only thing i would say I wasn't happy with was the carry case it arrived in was ripped.
So that might be something the company can look at improving.




Thanks for reading

AHAVA GOLD EDITION



AHAVA GOLD EDITION
Hey girls and guys hope you are all well and set for the 6 weeks holiday.
So I have been sent a product to try from AHAVA ebay store.
I thought I would change the style of this review,
As most of you know the style of review changes.
Thats because I write it how I see fits well.
So hope you enjoy reading.

Here is a few question and answers.

What product was I sent?
AHAVA GOLD EDITION

What is AHAVA GOLD EDITION?
Ahava gold edition is a mineral body lotion.

What other products do they sell?
They sell so many products for your skin feel free to look on their ebay store.





So What did I think?


Firstly Looking at the Ahava Ebay Store I can honestly see lots of great looking products.
There seems to be a nice selection to choose from for your skins needs.
Ahava shipped my body lotion quickly and I had no issues with regards to shipping times.
However even though the bodylotion was carefully packed it seemed the delivery people didn't take great care of the package as it leaked a little bit inside the postal jiffy envelope.
it only leaked to about the size of a 50p coin.




What did I think of AHAVA GOLD EDITION

The gold coloured bottle with the great logo Makes the product that extra bit special.
Looks good to have in your bathroom dressing room, the pump dispenser makes it really lovely and useful no unscrewing lids and losing lids you know all that effort that normal lid bottles seem to have.

With the pump dispenser it's good because if you have it in your hallway your late for work your hands are dry you can quickly squirt piece on your hands and rub the lotion in as you are leaving your house talk about multitasking aye.




The Smell And Everything Else.


Oh wow the smell of ahava gold edition smells wonderful i can't quite name the scent as such but it smells luxury like a product that would be used on you in a posh spa, or luxury beauty room in a very luxury salon in london.

AHAVA gold edition body lotion 500ml is £19.99 to buy from the ahava ebay store.

I love how lovely it made my skin feel it worked lovely on my body not only making my skin feel smooth and lovely but made it smell great too much needed after all this sunny weather we have been having which drys out the skin big time.

The only thing the lotion did not really work on was my feet but admittedly nothing really doesn't work on my feet as they are so so dry and have been ever since going to camber sands a few years back.

So the cream does work just not that well on cracked dry feet so heads up if you are buying it just for your feet it is not worth it, but if you are buying it for your body then its well worth the price.





Overall Verdict



So Keeping this short and sweet I know you are all busy with the holidays ahead.
My overall views on this product are it is a lovely product 
a very nice size bottle for the price of £19.99 which in my eyes is worth it.
It smells great and makes your skin smell great and feel great which is what I tend to look for in a product because if it smells great on your skin you are gonna be more confident in using it.
After all nobody likes smelling like a toxic smell walking through town just to have soft skin.

The pump action is very ideal and useful saving time from unscrewing lids.
And also makes product last longer due to your only use a small bit and not tip the bottle and end up with too much on your hands, yes we have all done it before.

So overall yes I loved this product although I think Ahava need to invest maybe in better postal packaging due to the small leakage i had  in my jiffy bag when it arrived because of the postal service.

Also this product is only worth buying if its for your body, if you want to have smoother great smelling skin, it didn't work on my feet so be warned if you're buying it just for your feet it is not worth it.


Thank you for reading

Caroline

What are you doing for your holidays?

Hubby's Birthday



Hey guys and girls, Hope you are all well.
Today is more of a personal post hope you enjoy.
So on 11th july it was my hubbys birthday he turned 32.
If you remember last year we went to a restaurant with friends.

Here is what we did this year I will try keep it short and sweet.


The morning he woke up I made a nice cup of coffee
Me and chloe  then wrote in his birthday cards then Wrapped a present.
Anyway once shane woke up and came down stairs he opened his cards and present.


Here is the present was from toxic fox


Abit later shane skyped his dad in australia which was nice for him to catch up.
He was on the call for over 2 hours aswell the joys of skype being able to talk to family.

Bit later he popped to the shop with chloe to grab a few bits for dinner which was my treat.
I surprised him and chloe turned up at the shop and said lets go in minimart then brought shane two packs of biltong which is like beef jerky but far better than beef jerky.

Even though the packs are small and cost £5.20 each the flavour is so good.
We put it all in a Jar so instead of having a sweet jar, or cookie jar we now have a biltong jar.

Later in the evening we had a pizza with garlic bread, wedges, onion rings for dinner.
Pigged out and watched a movie together at home chloe wanted to go bed early so she went to bed after her dinner.





So As this is shane's birthday post
thought id show you these great birthday gifts

Here Is A Few Picks I think make great gifts for men and woman.
