Duckymeter, the Baby Bath Floating Duck Toy and Bath Tub Thermometer – Midweek Review

Marc

Such an iconic idea, a bath thermometer duck that is ideal for use and play. The cheerful duck character is made from a soft rubber, which is toxic-free, this is perfectly ideal for children to use under adult supervision.
     The thermometer has a bright display located on the top and it has three different temperature functions. Cold is blue, ideal is green, and too hot is red. Along with this feature it displays a digital reading of the temperature in Fahrenheit.
     Using the duck thermometer couldn’t be simpler, you place it on water and it activates the colourful display.
     I would recommend this product to anyone with young children, but this could be used for any age, even adults who love to play with a rubber duck in the bath.
     Pictures are attached below. You can find this product on Amazon US and Amazon UK.

Ozeri Ultra Thin Professional Digital Kitchen Food Scale — Midweek Review

Published by:

  
The Ozeri Ultra Thin kitchen scales are beyond simplistic. You turn the scales on, place an item on the scales, wait for it to start weighing, select your measurement, and BOOM! The jobs done! 

Ozeri, yet again, maintain fantastic build quality, and sleek look. Hands down, Ozeri do make some sexy products, but as the old saying goes: sex sells. And, if you look at their products, it is clear that Ozeri want to maintain this now and future products. This product looks good in any kitchen no matter what the decor it is. 

Within this product you will find three measurement options: pounds, kilograms, and ounces. Also, with a vibrant display and big numbers, this is very easy for anyone to read. 

For the price point of $17 (correct as of 14th November 2015) it is clear that you get a quality for a low price.

Ozeri Digital Bathroom Scale with Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial — Midweek Review

Published by:

 

The Ozeri digital bathroom scales bridge the gap between budget and professional scales. 

As you look at the device it is very sleek, lightweight, and stylish. The LCD is very bright and very clear to read. It also has a  very vibrant dial which can be clearly be seen in any situation. 

When it comes to standard consumer scales in the UK, we tend to use stones and pounds as the standard unit of measurement, and if that’s what you are after then you won’t be getting that with these scales. These scales are shipped as standard with US unit measurements, which is kilograms or pounds. If you want to work out your weight into stones and pounds just put the scales in pounds by pressing the button on the bottom, and then divide that by 14. 

Simplicity is the key to these scales. You just stand on them, and it starts to measure—no wait time whatsoever!

I would certainly recommend these scales, purely because the quality is fantastic, and they are the same price as poor quality ones from a national supermarket. Save time by buying these to get a quality set of scales.

HungryHouse — Your best way for Takeaway

Published by:

HungryHouse, your best way for takeaway. 

I’ve been using this service for many months now and I have nothing, but good things to say about them. 

Before I discovered HungryHouse I was using a service called JustEat, but this wasn’t to last very long because I had a bout of food poisoning from the Chinese takeaway I ordered from. Yes, this could have happen with any takeaway service, but I felt dissatisfied that they had a poor quality takeaway on their database. 

When ordering from HungryHouse I have always received top quality food and superb customer service. There has been a small amount of times where I’ve had issues (very small), but HungryHouse have always come through for me. 

HungryHouse also love their customers, they always love to talk and find out about the people they serve. I have found myself many times in conversation with them, them, not just about their service, but on a personal level too. I find it loving that they go out their way to message me to see how I am and to ask about current projects I have going on. 

Now, I must clear up something. Some people make out that HungryHouse is the provider of your food—if they could they would—but they are just a takeaway directory that try to give you access to quality takeaways in your area. But, I must defend them because they do try to provide top quality all the time. 

So, enough of my ramblings. What are you waiting for? Head over to HungryHouse to order your takeaway today. On a side note, HungryHouse do have special offers on sometimes, keep an eye on their Twitter and Facebook for these deals.

Ozeri 12″ Green Earth Wok – Midweek Review

Published by:

wpid-20150825_204939.jpg
The 12″ Earth Green Wok by Ozeri is a very versatile piece of kitchen equipment, it comes with a smooth ceramic Non-stick coating that is 100% PTFE and PFOA Free. Not only just food friendly, but earth friendly too!

When you look at other wok’s, you seem to find that the build quality is very poor and light, but with the Ozeri Green Earth Wok you won’t come across this issue. From start to finish Ozeri have took attention to detail when making this product, it may seem on the heavy side, but this gives you the reassurance that it wont get knocked over easily, unlike other Wok’s in this price range.

We did two cooking tests with the Ozeri Green Earth Wok; One was cooking fried eggs, and the other was cooking a stir fry. Pictures will be at the end, but spoiler alert, the food was made to perfection!

Would I recommend this product? Yes. This is the only Wok currently that I have found with perfect build quality, doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals, great value price, and makes food to perfection.

Ozeri 4x3sport Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer — Midweek Review

Published by:

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been fortunate enough to receive the Ozeri 4×3 Sport Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer from Ozeri for the purposes of an honest review. 

  
As you can see, the device has a very slim and sleek look about it, and curved around the edges, which is an added bonus, you don’t want to catch yourself on sharp corners. 

This device comes with a 30 day memory capacity, or 1 million steps. Also, this is the only device currently on the market that has tri-axis, and this will allow you to wear it in many directions and even around your neck (using the lanyard provided.) 

I do have one set back for this review, but it’s mainly to do with instruction manual, it is very small and hard to read, I had to setup and configure the device by chance and learning the buttons.    

 

I’ve had many step counting devices before, and this is the only one that has counted my steps correctly so far. Currently, I am using the FitBit Charge HR, and in comparison, the Fitbit is out by at least 23% on its counting, this is a general bug bear for FitBit users. 

I would totally recommend this product, and that’s even with its medium price tag. If you want your fitness to be correct, then I would certainly say, take a look and hit that buy button.

Avantree Force 13000mAh Power Bank — Midweek Review

Published by:

 

I was sent this portable charge pack to review from Avantree this week. Happily named the force, and by nature it lives up to its name. 

Before I start, please be aware that I DO NOT get paid to do this review, this is a 100% honest review, and contains ONLY my own opinions of the device. 

The Avantree Force has a large battery capacity of 13000mAh, this will allow you to recharge your device several times from a dead position. During my tests I found that I could recharge an iPhone 6 eight times, which is astounding. 

For the perpose of this review I drained the battery pack and recharged it twice to check how long it would take to charge from a dead charge. The result was as follows: 14 hours and 58 minutes. So, even if you leave it on charge overnight, you will have enough for the next day. 

Let’s look at build quality. The device is made very well, very robust, and feels very strong. But, I will need to point out one minor issue I had. The device has sharp corners and I have found myself being stabbed by them, please bare in mind that I use this a lot in bed, so not everyone will have this same problem. With this issue in mind, I would’ve preferred curved edges, but this is a personal preference. 

This device comes with a built in micro USB adapter which simply comes away from the side and you can plug in your device with no issues. You will also have an additional USB port to plug in other devices, iPhones or other devices, or even another micro USB device. One other thing to note, the DC IN is for charging the pack ONLY!  

  

Here is the specifications sheet from Avantree:  

Overall:

The device is fantastic, it takes less time to charge, charges two devices at a time, but the only thing I would change is the edges of the device to curved. I would still use this device regardless and I would certainly take it with me wherever I go. 

4.5 out of 5 I rate this device, grab yours now!

More information about this device can be found HERE on Avantree’s website.

A Year in the Life of a Playground Mother Book Review

Published by:

22461860christiebarlow

You will either love or dislike this book, there is no in between. This is the reason why it is so successful. You will have an opinion on it, its a book you will not forget, a talking point. I happened to love it, It was hilarious, so true to life highlighting superficial friendships of primary school mothers who spend hours gossiping about every one else’s life instead of concentrating on their own. Penelope and Rupert are funny, sports day was the best chapter and the mountain climb. The ending was unexpected and I really can’t wait for the next book.
