Myleene Klass NAILS

                                          The vivacious, Myleene has recently created 7 new designs for her Myleene Klass Nails collection. Each set consists of 24 peel and stick nail wraps of different sizes and 24 transparencies, enough to apply to fingers, and toes if you wish; with a few spares allowing for any slip ups. A nail file is also included in the pack. The packs are £5.99 from UK in Boots, Debenhams, Asda and Wilkinsons and online too from JMLdirect.com where there is currently a special offer running of £19.99 for five sets. Note: also available in Ireland at Dunnes, Heatons and Debenhams. Apply by peeling from the backing paper a self adhesive ‘nail’ and sticking it to a fingernail, or toenail, that best matches in size, the rounded end follows the contours of the cuticle and the excess needs to be filed away. There is no heat required to fix but the process has to be repeated …

Kellogg’s Mini Max Cereal – Original Flavour

You may have been intrigued to know what the new Kellogg’s Mini Max cereal is like – well the long and the short of it is that it is a box of mini sized Shredded Wheat parcels dusted with fine sugar. Where Mini Max differs from other small wholegrain parcel cereals, such as Kellogg’s ‘Frosted’ and Kellogg’s ‘Raisin’ wheat, is mainly that the size has been shrunk down again from that of these two familiar bite sized versions. Undoubtedly, the company have been fully aware of its target audience when coming up with this invention. Mini Max is designed with younger aged children in mind. Served with warm or cold milk, these minis soak up milk so the texture is nice and soft. The idea is that the combination of ingredients allows the feeling of being fuller for longer, and, therefore, makes a good start to a day, nutritionally. The addition of the fine sugar topping takes away the need to add extra sugar. The balance of sweetness is ‘just right’. The design and marketing …

Butterfly Mismatch Charm Necklace – Blombos Cave

                                          Let’s talk about this. This is a classy, upmarket, charm necklace by Edinburgh based artist Hannah Louise Lamb. This jewellery item will go a long way in sending the best of sentiments, or the sincerest thank you, to a cherished woman in your life, whatever her role. The item has the potential to be the kind of object, because of the qualities and its essential nature, to be a treasured keepsake. It has the possibility of conveying, somewhere down- the- line, the story of the day the giver (gave), and recipient (received) it, and could well serve as a testament of the relationship in wider context.    This particular design is called a butterfly ‘mismatch’ charm necklace. The chain is 17 inches (43.5cm) long and so sits nicely around the collar bone area. It is made from sterling silver and has two pendants that are placed just over an inch (2.7cm) apart. One pendant …

Chillax Drinks

This is a lightly, carbonated soft drink. It is pink in colour, pleasant to pour as it fizzes slightly; with a fruity aroma. And best served chilled as it says on the can. A pleasant party style drink. The concept is a good idea. Served alone in the can, or over ice in a fancy glass, provides a touch of luxury for social drinker looking for a refreshing, light drink, yet who is wishing to avoid either alcohol, caffeine, and/or sugar. There is a big online marketing campaign for the product at the moment where much of the emphasis is on the drink’s stress relieving natural ingredients and the benefits of the added vitamins. The natural flavours are mainly from the Rose-Hip juice that is made from concentrate, and from extracts of Passionflower and Chamomile. The vitamins are a blend of Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12, as well as Vitamin C, Niacin, Vitamin E and Pantothenic Acid. Chillax contains no artificial flavours or colouring and so is made up of 100% natural flavours. With all …

Sensa Solido Elite 4V Laminate Flooring

Sensa laminate is German made. It is of good quality and will enhance any room, aesthetically, in which it is installed. It is affordable and straightforward to fit and has a ten year guarantee. Laminate remains a trendy, effective alternative to fitting real wood floors. Nevertheless many consumers, having fitted laminate flooring have ended up being unhappy with it and are choosing to cover up it up with carpeting once again or opting to do away with it altogether. The problem has been that poor quality laminate flooring which is widely available, the kind that was perhaps difficult to fit in the first place, has proven not to function properly or is disappointingly average in its overall look and feel. My home is three-storey town house built in 2003. I try to maintain a finish of clean lines within, therefore replacing the aging carpet in bedrooms and in the study with laminate flooring seemed the best way to keep up the modern look without breaking the bank. And so, after doing my homework in regard …
