Shark Rocket Ultra Light HV320 Review

We purchased the Shark Rocket Ultra Light HV320 because both of our vacuums are too heavy for my Mum who has several physical illnesses. We usually have a vacuum on each floor of the house but they are both quite bulky and my Mum is struggling to use them. We decided it was time to invest in a new Vacuum. After hours of looking at them and reading reviews we settled on this Shark one. We chose it due to the Ultra Light style. Share This:

Nandos Wakefield – Review

Myself, my best friend and her one year old daughter ‘A’ went to Nandos Wakefield on the 3rd May 2017 for a meal. When we arrived they were quick to approach us with a smile on their face. They gave us a choice of seats as the restaurant wasn’t very busy. Share This:

Book Review – Life Beyond Chronic Pain by Jaime Heidel

I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. I am not a big reader but when I was given the opportunity to read this book I jumped at the chance. Anything to do with chronic illness and pain is of interest to me. I found this book so interesting I literally read it all in one sitting! By reading this book Jaime made me feel like I wasn’t alone and it was lovely of her to tell her personal story to show others that they aren’t alone. She portrays herself as a very personable and relatable individual whose book I thoroughly enjoyed reading and will keep to one side to refer back to. Share This:

N:Rem foam mattress topper review

Disclaimer: I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. I was so excited to hear I had the opportunity to review the N:Rem foam mattress topper. I suffer from neck and back pain majority of the time. Several of the nights my legs also ache, I can only describe it similar to growing pains when I was a child but more severe. I was thrilled to read that this mattress topper was “designed specifically for pain sufferers, all N:rem products are customisable to your exact needs.” (N:rem Website) This sounded like the perfect product for me.

Stress Free Thrive App – Review

When I was offered the opportunity to review the Stress Free application from Thrive free of charge for a month I jumped at the chance. I was asked for a review for their website in exchange for the free trial but because I have enjoyed using this app I thought I would also post about it on here. The ‘Stress Free’ app consists of several sections including breathing, meditation, deep muscle relaxation, self-hypnosis and the zen garden. I thought this would be beneficial for my mental health mainly my Anxiety by being able to relax myself. I also thought the deep muscle relaxation may be beneficial for the general pains I get in my limbs. Share This:

Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask Review

I am not usually a big fan of skin care products. I don’t like the feel of the cold products on my face, due to this I don’t use them long enough to see any improvement which makes me give up on them. Despite this I absolutely love the Epoch Glacial Marine Mud mask, this is why I have decided to review it. It must be special if I have bought my second tube.

Mattia Diner – Junction 32 Castleford

I took my friend to Mattia Diner at Junction 32, Castleford to treat her to a meal for her birthday. This was the first time either of us had been here before. We went in the week around lunchtime. Upon arriving at Junction 32, the diner was well sign posted and easy to find. The outside of the diner and surrounding areas were clean, tidy and looked professional. When we walked inside the building it was obvious it was representing an american diner and seemed appropriately decorated. It was extremely clean and tidy, both the floors and tables. The staff members were dressed in clean and neat uniforms. The diner only had a few customers in when we arrived so we was able to choose from plenty of tables. Upon sitting down and taking off our coats the waitress promptly arrived at our table with the menus. There were a variety of food and drink options. I am quite a picky eater and I was still undecided as several meals caught my attention. After deciding and putting our menus down the waitress was very prompt in taking our orders. The waitress had a strong accent which wasn’t English which we found hard to understand and had to ask her to repeat herself a few times, this made me feel awkward. Although she was extremely polite and efficient. We both chose hotdog and fries, I chose Fanta to drink and Emma chose Coca – Cola. The waitress came back with our drinks that were perfectly cold in under a minute. Both of our food orders arrived within 5 minutes of placing our order. When the food arrived it was hot and presented well. There were a variety of well stocked and presented condiments on the table. The food tasted nice and fresh and they were some of the nicest fries I have ever tasted. With half of the building being large windows the diner was naturally lit. Although the sun was quite bright and blinding my friend where she was sat, but she moved to the seat next to her and it was fine. From the time we received our food the waitress returned after 16 minutes to ask if we had finished even though I was still eating. I thought this was a bit rushed especially when the diner wasn’t even half full. When we did finish the waitress was quick to bring us our bill and I was surprised to find it was only £20 for both of our meals and drinks. I think this is great value for money considering the super quick service we received and the clean and tidy area. Overall I really enjoyed the food and service here. There were a few very minor issues but I would definitely return again and would recommend it to anyone who loves the american diner experience. Jenna von x Share This:

Green Tea Capsule Review

The green tea capsules I am reviewing are the Pharmanex Tegreen brand. Everyone raves about this product so i wanted to give them a try. I bought them several months ago but I only started taking them in January. I had a tub of thirty capsules and had to take one daily as instructed from the information. I have completed the capsules without missing a day. The first two days these really irritated my bowels but I do have IBS so I was expecting this. I was actually expecting them to effect me throughout the entire time but was surprised and happy to see it stopped after just two days. Within the first week I had noticed a major difference in my bloating. I usually bloat really bad all day, every day. The bloating had greatly reduced. In the first two weeks I had very minimal bloating or none at all. The last two weeks I did bloat but nowhere near as extreme as before the capsules. I still felt comfortable in fitted clothing. After a week of taking the capsules a friend asked me if I had noticed nail growth as she did when she took them. I shamefully admit I had bit my nails right down at that point. I vowed to see if they do grow and refrained from biting them. I can honestly say from the last three weeks of the capsules that my nails are so long and healthy compared to being bitten down to the skin before. These capsules aren’t supposed to be a weight loss product but they are well known for it due to the metabolism increase. I was aware of this when I started these so I was on the scales daily weighing myself. I only lost 2lbs in the four week but this is brilliant for me. The prior seven months to taking these I had gained three stone and was still steadily gaining a few lbs a week due to my medication. So to stop gaining and lose a little bit was better than nothing when these aren’t even for weight loss. I could see a huge difference in my energy levels when taking these. They gave me a real boost. I was able to wake up on a morning and not feel tired like before. I was alert throughout the entire day. One capsule is supposed to be equal to six cups of green tea and it doesn’t have any caffeine in. This is a positive thing as caffeine can have negative effects on your health. Overall this product was beneficial for my health. The boosted energy levels were good for my moods. I was able to wake up without being moody and able to stay awake all day. The minimised bloating was great too, it really improved my self-esteem in fitted clothing. I’m also impressed with the growth and strength of my nails. If you choose to buy this product please ensure that you purchase it from a distributor for Nuskin and not auction sites to make sure you receive the real product. These retail at £25 plus postage so you know how much you should be roughly paying. If the price sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Be aware of what you are putting in your body. *I am not a Distributor for Nuskin but there will be plenty in your local area. Jenna von x Share This:
