If your hubby is the ‘outdoors’ type he will really appreciate these 2 items from the high quality well known brand Thermos. I have quite a few of their products and they have stood the test of time and the test of ‘surviving’ in our household as well! The dual compartment food jar is perfect for taking both hot and cold foods on your travels accompanied with the king flask – you simply cannot go wrong with these two products.
Gillette Fusion ProShield Chill is the new and ‘cool’ razor from the well known brand Gillette. It’s that little bit extra special as it shields as you shave – this is the most advanced razor from Gillette to date.
Pinkster Gin is top of my Valentines day shopping list – it’s gin, but not as you know it !! It’s perfect to share with your Valentine as its pink and fruity – and the presentation is fab. The bottle is absolutely gorgeous, a beautiful pink rectangular bottle that looks good with gin in it and will also look good with a candle in it when you have enjoyed the gin.
With it’s heart shaped label to finish it off, it will melt hearts for sure.
Pinkster gin is made with raspberries exclusively grown in Pinkster HQ Cambridgeshire so this is a pretty special bottle of gin!
However, as with all good things, they don’t last – this is a limited edition bottle so get yours now, available from Amazon – link below.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I am thinking – do our men know what we REALLY want? To be honest, I am craving Mr Grey and cannot wait until my friends and I head out to the cinema to see film no.2 – Fifty Shades Darker! We have been messing about at work and the plan is for each of us to bring a ‘prop’ – we stand a good chance of being refused entry with some the props my friends have talked about bringing! I have my ‘prop’ from So Divine and if you are on the lookout for something ‘fun’ but not overpriced for your partner this year you have to have a look at www.so-divine.com
Last month I discovered an amazing intuitive company – Protect My Pet. These ingenious people came up with a solution for pet owners, sending out cute well presented boxes every month containing all your dog needs to stay healthy and parasite free. These are tailored to suit your pet specifically and have the correct dose of worming and flee treatments as well as some ‘goodies’ and other essentials. My dog quickly detected that the box contained something nice!
I simply have to comment on the presentation – look at the paper and paw print sticker – isn’t this fab? I love it and even hubby was impressed. Tyke’s box is £10 each month and it is certainly cheaper than worm and flee treatment you get from the vets.
The box contained a packet of natural breath freshener treats and a natural snack bar – he loved this. Its so important to keep an eye on ingredients in dog food and good, truly natural companies are hard to find. Protect My Pet have used products from Lily’s Kitchen, a very well known natural pet food company and also from Pooch & Mutt. These are 100% safe for your pet and have no hidden ‘nasties’ contained within.
Have a look at www.protect-mypet.com and read their story, the how’s and why’s of the company are very interesting. They certainly impressed me and I will be receiving Tyke’s treatment from them as and when he needs it in the future, simply and with no fuss.
Get your free first box by using code PAMPEREDPETS before 25/03/17. Choose your box at www.protect-mypet.com. (Ts&Cs apply.)
I will never forget my time on the island of Hawaii. The sun, sea sand and gorgeous scenery made my trip unforgettable. Maui Jim sunglasses are inspired by and made in Hawaii, what better place to make and design super cool and practical sunglasses?
Aside from looking great, Maui Jim sunglasses ARE great! They combat glare, block 100% of harmful UV rays and do not compromise on vision quality. All the colours come to life when wearing Maui Jim’s, thanks to their revolutionary ‘PolarizedPlus’ lenses. The natural vibrant colours of the island are enhanced with rare earth elements incorporated in the lenses. Impressed? So am I. Maui Jim glasses can also be made to your own prescription so we can all enjoy the brilliance of these very cool eye glasses.
I have Maui Jim Bamboo Forest Sunglasses and all I can say is WOW. They look great, and are so easy to wear. The combination of a very light frame combined with super strong scratch resistant lenses have placed these at the top of my ‘favourites list’. These come in three styles – Olive Fade, Root beer Fade and Gloss Black Fade.
Exclusive to Maui Jim, MauiFlex memory metal ensures these frames outlast any other sunglasses, retain their shape and weigh next to nothing. They are worn effortlessly and the high gloss finish screams, ‘ look at my gorgeous sunglasses!’ Well, I think they do!
I can’t say enough about them. I have never spent more than £30 on sunglasses in the past so I guess I am fairly easily impressed. However, I never fail to stop at a stand of sunglasses and have tried various designer brands in my local ‘posh outlet shops’. Maui Jim are far superior. They sit as well on the top of my head holding my hair back as they do when worn to protect my eyes from the sun. The non-slip nose pads ensure they stay in place even when running about after the kids and our little dog. These glasses do not move! I wear them every-day and it ‘makes my day’ when I get admiring glances and comments about them.
I guess the perfect test was to wear them kayaking – would they survive a trip on the water and not fall off? Yes, they did! They perfectly fit snugly to the sides of your head and don’t budge.
Have a look online, the choice is vast with shades to suit all tastes and styles.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE VIEW
‘The Aloha Spirit permeates our philosophy at Maui Jim. Our “ohana” (Hawaiian for family) is passionate about creating the best sunglasses on the planet. Because at the end of the day, we want to see the world at its best – and we know that you do, too, no matter where you live. Aloha, friends!’ (Mauri Jim)
Dark Matter Spiced Rum is rather special. For starters, I am a huge fan of alcohol so any review concerning this substance is a pleasure. I would have downed quite a few glasses of Rum in ‘my day’, however, as you move from your 20’s into your 40’s you tend to sip slowly and savour so the alcohol content becomes less important and the taste more important. I have yet to taste a Rum I do not like and think – ‘Hmmm, I could have quite a few of these!!’ but Dark Matter Spiced Rum, as I have said, is different. This Rum is truly like no other Rum on the market.
The Ibis Belfast City Centre was a bit of a surprise to me. I was expecting a ‘budget experience’ as the IBIS Hotel is rather low in price but that was not what I found. This hotel is located in the heart of the thriving city of Belfast directly behind the Castle Court shopping centre.
