New Kitchenware Range from Kaufmann | Review

*Gifted product, Affiliate links

Kaufmann
is an English brand that was established way back in the 1920s. Originally, they sold baskets and other products made from natural raw materials. 2018 sees the brand re-established into the field of kitchenware and today they make saucepans, frying pans, prep and serverware etc. Kaufmann's products are available to buy only on Amazon and their offerings are perfect for those who want great value without compromising on quality.

Kaufmann's Sienna range which includes a 3-piece saucepan set, a 5-piece saucepan and a 2-piece frying pan set, are all designed to stand the test of everyday use and offer great value for money. I was sent the 3-piece saucepan set for review and my first thoughts on receiving the product was how well made it looked. And that too at a very affordable price of £36.28 (RRP) for a 3-piece set.

Ozeri 14" Green Earth Wok with Smooth Ceramic Non-Stick Coating

*Gifted sample / Affiliate links

Featured on the blog today is the Green Earth Wok from Ozeri which is one of the world's first woks to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA and other harmful chemicals. PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene) is a substance with waxy properties and is used in conventional non-stick cookware to achieve the non-stick properties. However at very high temperatures (which is common while cooking) PTFE starts to decompose and releases some harmful fumes. So, Ozeri came up with a technology called 'Ecozeri' which utilises a 100% ceramic coating derived from nature. This makes the Ozeri wok eco-friendly and ultra-safe.

Regular readers of the blog would know that I have featured Prestige Flowers a number of times on the blog.

So, for the next 12 months, I will be sharing with you my thoughts on twelve wonderful bouquets from Prestige Flower's Haute Florist range.

Judge Table Top Grill (Non-Stick Griddle) Review

The BBQ season may be over but the Judge Cookware Table Top Grill provides the convenience of cooking up tasty grilled food irrespective of the season. Ideal for outdoor cooking or 'table top' party cooking, the grill can be used for a variety of foods and cooking styles.

Judge Table Top Grill


While we didn't put the grill to an outdoors test, we have used it indoors and I loved its convenience. With a large hot plate and variable temperature control (from 120 to 240°C), the grill is suitable for cooking all kinds of vegetables, eggs and meat. And you can even use it to keep food warm.

Restora Protein Treatment for Heat-Damaged, Dry Hair

While I don't colour my hair, I do heat style a lot as my hair is wavy, frizzy and very untameable. A hair straightener is needed to help tame it. I understand the damage that heat does to hair, so I ensure that I minimise the damage to hair by protecting it before I style. Hair oil, hair masques and heat protectant sprays are some of the products I use normally use.

Early in September I was sent the Restora™ Protein Treatment - which is an innovative three-step hair treatment for damaged hair. Today, I will share my views on the same.

Comfortable Walking with VIONIC's Torri High-top Trainers

Founded by Philip Vasyli who is a podiatrist, VIONIC make a stylish range of shoes, sandals, and boots using their award-winning FMT Technology orthotics. According to their website, a clinical study showed that VIONIC's sandals effectively alleviate non-traumatic, moderate heel pain.

What to pack for a ski trip?

Stunning natural scenery and the thrill of speed - a combination which makes skiing a very fun and unparalleled sport. It is never too late to learn to ski although it is best to learn skiing while you are young (simply because the learning curve will be less). There are a few indoor skiing slopes in the UK where beginners can pick up the techniques required before they head to the mountains to ski in the dramatic scenery. So, once you have had the basic training and are ready to head on your ski holiday, it is the time to decide what needs to go into your ski holiday kit. In addition to your ski equipment (skis, ski poles and ski boots etc - which you can hire in most places), you will need to pack the following clothing/accessories for your ski holiday.

Sensational Summer - Luxury Food Hamper from Prestige Hampers

Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas? I think not. I have started noticing Christmas goods appearing in some of the superstores. Yes, we have more than three months to go until Christmas but you can start planning early to save yourself some holiday stress! I think it is a good idea to get a head start on your holiday planning, budgeting and shopping. With that in mind, here is my first Christmas related post for 2018.

Hempz Beauty Pink Pomelo & Himalayan Sea Salt Scrub - Review

Today I am talking about body scrubs. I think I can safely say that most of us love a good body scrub. But what makes a body scrub good? Well, it has to have the right balance of exfoliating properties and moisturising elements plus a fabulous fragrance to leave you with soft and supple skin. And I have found one such excellent body scrub recently - the Hempz Beauty Pink Pomelo & Himalayan Sea Salt Scrub!

Tesalate Beach Towels | Review and Giveaway

Beach outings with family and friends are always fun. Building sandcastles, playing beach kickball or simply swimming or sunbathing, it all adds up to a relaxing, fun time. Sand is so much fun, isn't it? But only at the beach. Imagine coming home and finding that you have brought a part of the beach back with you! Normal beach towels tend to trap and carry sand that usually ends up at the home. A big annoyance!

With this in mind, Tesalate, an Australian company (founded by Jacky Lam and Volkan Ozbek), invented a beach towel that promises to not only keep you sand free, but also looking good!
