Review | Giant Light Task Floor Lamp from Litecraft.co.uk
The nights are drawing in, the leaves are falling from the trees and autumn's riot of colour fades into the greys of winter. The cooler months are great time for cosying up to the fire with a nice cup of something warm, and when lighting - inside and out - becomes more important.
I had the opportunity to review a lamp from LiteCraft. I love lighting as the lighting can either make or break your room. I have 3-5 layers of lighting in almost every room, I barelly ever use the downlights as they're just too bright and uncomfortable to look at (I don't have a dimmer switch). I was missing lighting above my dining table, so I started looking for a floor lamp with an arch so I could get some light right above the table, this is when I found this gorgeous 'Giant Task Floor lamp' - it was ...>> full
Review | Cox & Cox
When you feel that first crisp breeze, you know that summer is gone and fall is in the air. Every season has its upside; however, autumn has a particular beauty to it. Lovers of the season revel in its unique ability to turn the world into one big canvas with nature’s paintbrush. From warm apple cider to camping trips, there are so many reasons to enjoy fall. Here are five things about the season that will bring out the autumn lover in you. As a big fan of Cox & Cox, I had the opportunity to review 3 products from their Autumn range, and I went for one product that I really needed and two that were perfect for Autumn :)
They arrived very quick and were securely packed (which is a must!).

One of my favourite things about Spring and Summer is picnics. Who wouldn't love a tasty afternoon in the great outdoors enjoying the lovely weather? Picnics need not be only a day time affair. I enjoy dinner picnics and travelling picnics as much as I enjoy a good afternoon picnic.
I used to have this rather cute, traditional wicker picnic basket - my daughter loved it. Then during our move in 2014, it broke and we had to bid it farewell.
So earlier this week I had the opportunity to check out HomeSense's 'Al Fresco' range where I fell in love with this modern twist on the traditional wicker basket. It's a bright, colourful and spacious cool bag which is both decorative and functional. Perfect for picnics or Al Fresco dinning!
Designed to keep your food and drinks cool all party long, this cooler also features comfy hand grips and a side pocket for extra ...>> full
Review | Paris Poster Myloview.com
As an Award Winning Interior Designer and someone with a passion for creating Beautiful, Healthy and Happy Homes - I always keep in loop with 'What's new?' and 'What's in?' and 'What's multi-functional'. This is when I came across Myloview.com. They're a company specialising in wall-art. The idea of their brand is based on the pursuit of beauty, which could occur in the near human space - at home, at school and at work.
I had the opportunity to review a product of choice, and as I am LOVE of Paris, I chose this poster in size 63 inch x 48 inch.
It arrived within a week, in very nice, colourful postal tube 'box'. It was securely pinned, and the poster was nicely wrapped. Once I took it out (took me a few minutes as I it was bigger than I thought - which of course was a BONUS!!!).

Oven Pride is the UK’s number one Oven Cleaner, has been approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute and is a Loved by Parents awards winner.
Oven Pride is available at all major supermarkets with an RRP of £3.99
For more information, visit www.ovenpride.com.
MY VERDICT: This stuff is unbelievable. We have a horrible old oven which never comes up clean. I used a bottle of Oven Pride and the shelves were basically spotless. There was the odd spot that needed a bit of a scrub but none of the other regular spray on cleaners even come close to this. Totally recommend.

Review | Dr Beckmann's Cleaning Products
As a part of The National Spring Cleaning Week in March (I know it sounds ages ago!) I received quite a few cleaning products from Dr Beckmann to test out. Check out my reviews below :)
Hardwood & Parquet Floor Cleaner 1lt - An absolute must for any hard wood floor,just add a capful in a bucket of warm water and mop it on the floor with a floor cloth,dries quickly and gives your floor a lovely sheen finish and it smells good too.
Pre-Wash Stain Devils 250ml - Excellent stain remover especially for collar & cuffs stains. Works well on white work/school shirts collars, also on other general marks on other clothes.
Oven Cleaner 375ml - I've tried probably every household tip, and commercial product out there, and this is by far the best I've found. Just spray on, leave, then wipe off. Really strips grease off, and doesn't have the overpowering ammonia/acid smell of other products. ...>> full
