Recently offered me the chance to review some of their products and gave me a choice of glasses to pick from, so I decided to review the Hurricane Cocktail Glasses because they looked amazing!

In June 2011 launched their own brand called bar@drinkstuff and the hurricane glasses are part of this range. The bar@drinkstuff consists of almost 200 different products to buy and with new ones being added frequently. You can find the whole range of bar@drinkstuff here.

I received 4 of the glasses and I was very impressed. The cocktail glasses are not actually made of glass but out of a strong and practically unbreakable plastic making it a safer option and more affordable too. The 4 glasses I received cost £14.99 and well worth the money. I tried out the glasses at home and I must confess that im a complete lightweight so I made up a alcohol free cocktail the test them and it turns out the glasses actually hold a large amount of drink!
(Excuse the cat bum hooks in the background!!!)

The glasses are well packaged so there shouldn't be any breakages whilst in the post! sell a variety of glasses such as the ones i received, shot glasses, martini glasses and even fish bowls for the perfect party. But they dont just sell glasses - the sell anything related to bars and parties such as bar stools, fridges and even inflatable hot tubs! All the products are very affordable and with standard delivery only £4.99 or free when spending over £50 there's no reason not to order from them. The website has top customer reviews so you know they are well trusted.

So if you're organising a party or need the perfect item for your bar then visit DrinkStuff. You can also follow them on twitter and facebook.

MooGoo Skin Care

I recently got offered the chance to try out some new skin care products from a company called MooGoo Skin Care and I couldn't wait to use them!

The received a Full Cream Moisturiser and a Oil Cleanser for dry skin. I've had them for about a week now and have been using them every day and ive noticed a huge difference with my skin! I tend to suffer the most from dry and spotty skin on my face so I focused on this area and within a week my skin felt so much softer and looked much clearer and generally felt alot healthier. I used products before that havent made a bit of difference so for this to work within a week is pretty amazing!

Out of the two products,my favourite has to be the full cream moisturiser - the smell of it makes it good enough to eat! (it smells of those 1p milk bottle sweets - yum!) And i love the packaging for it - it comes in a mini milk carton!
All of the products are even suitable to use on babies and during pregnancy and none of the products are tested on animals.
The MooGoo website also has loads of really useful information on skin conditions such as Eczema and Acne and also baby skin conditions such as Cradle Cap and Nappy Rash. All the information can be found here

MooGoo was first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem and developed from there. They now stock their products in pharmacies and health food stores across Australia and some selected stores in the UK, Ireland, Malaysia and the US.

I highly recommend checking out MooGoo - i will definitely be ordering from them again!
The full cream moisturiser costs £9 for 75g or £12.50 for 250g - this will last ages as only a tiny amount of moisturiser is needed and the Oil cleanser is £16.90 for 100ml.

Must add that the box it arrived in was ridiculously cute - even the postman commented on it!

Flamingo Candles Melt Crowd

I love candles and have been eyeing up the candles on Flamingo Candles website for along time but as you obviously cant smell them before you buy, I was a bit reluctant but when I heard they were starting a new subscription offer called The Melt Crowd where you get 8 different scent melts sent to you every month, i put my order in straight away!

The boxes cost £10 each (delivery is included in the £10) and they get sent out roughly on the first day of each month. You dont know what scents you will get until they arrive - the surprise element is always good!

As an introductory offer, everyone who ordered the first months melt crowd box got a free burner included in their offer.

When I eventually got my box (I missed the delivery as i was at work!) I immediately got a whiff of the amazing scents hidden in the box! The candles were well packaged within the box and wrapped in a pretty bag. Normally the boxes can fit through your letterbox but because of the burner that wasn't possible this time!

In Junes melt crowd box the candles were:
Pina Colada 
Mango and Dragonfruit
Tropical coconut milk and honey
Freshly Mown Grass *Melt Crowd Exclusive
Sweer Lime and Ceder
Juicy clementine *Melt Crowd Exclusive
Thai lime and mango

Unfortunately there was a mix up with my box and i received 2 freshly mown grass melts and no juicy clementine but they have emailed me to say they are sending me some clementine ones in the post hurrah!

They all smell amazing so i really struggled to choose one to melt first but i decided as i was given 2 of the grass ones, i should probably use one of them and oh it smells amazing!! The melts last approx 30 hours - obviously the tea light candles dont last that long but even with the candle not lit, the smell is still strong which is good!

As an added bonus, in the box there is also a discount code for 20% off another purchase on their website...eek thats dangerous!! I now need to decide what candle i want to purchase!!

Awesome Life Friday

Thursday, 4 June 2015

As most of you know, I have recently bought my first flat which means I now have a mortgage (eek!!) so ive been on the look out on way of saving money and through a bit of research I discovered the website Approved Food.

Approved food sell food, drink (soft and alcohol), household goods, health and beauty and pet food all at discount prices. They are able to sell the items at these prices due to the short or expired best before date but all the items are still within the use by date and perfectly suitable to eat/drink/use! Whats the point of throwing away perfectly good food?!

Ive been browsing their site for a few weeks and have been reading the reviews which have all been really good so I finally took the plunge and ordered!

I only did a small order for my first one incase I wasnt pleased but wish i had gone bigger now! 

Every day Approved Food put on one day only deals - for example I ordered 5 Bounty chocolate bars for 99p but they do things such as 8 cans of diet coke for 99p, 10 bags of crisps for £1 etc so its always worth checking everyday! They also do really good deals when you spend over £30 such discount on shipping. Sometimes they put random offers on such as creme eggs for 1p!!! But these go extremly fast!

They also do a thing called a Lucky Box which usually cost £1 - again these go quickly but i managed to grab one on my order. In the boxes you never know what you'll get which makes it exciting! Sometimes they even put cash in it as a special prize - usually £5. Not bad for £1!
In my box i got: A chocolate cake mix, 2 packets of crisps, grape juice, 2 boxes of beef OXO cubes, bottle of coke zero and a big bag of tortilla chips....all for £1!

They sell loads of branded products and products which have had minor damages to the packaging but all the items are packaged in the boxes incredibly well so nothing gets squashed!

The postage for my order was £5.99 which is very reasonable considering how much I saved! Delivery was quick too.I ordered late sunday afternoon and it arrived on the thursday. Unfortunately you cant pick a delivery date but my order thankfully got left with my neighbour as I was at work.

My order came to £18.03 with the RRP price of £49.46 which means i had a saving of £31.43!
