Treats Orpington


Hey girls and guys, I am back with a restaurant review, have not done one of these in a while.
Anyway I contacted Treats which opened in orpington and asked if I could come to review their restaurant for them, and they said yes, so me chloe and shane went there to try it out.
Treats is a desserts, ice cream parlor located in orpington, they also serve fresh cocktails.
Treats is already in talks of opening another store, and maybe more in the future.

About Treats
What Treats Have To Say
Treats was founded in 2016 and is independently owned – ensuring we maintain that homemade touch other dessert parlours often lack. We produce all of our Italian-style ice cream in-house, with a bevy of some of the finest dessert chefs in the county hand-crafting puddings on a daily basis from natural ingredients. Aside from dessert, we also conjure cocktails from our own personal bar, with a wide range of choices available for anyone who fancies a tipple or two with their food. For those concerned about dietary requirements, we provide options for anyone on a gluten free, vegetarian or vegan diet – as well as fruit for those who want to tackle the Treats menu with a slightly healthier approach. We pride ourselves on the delicious taste of our ice cream and other desserts, as well as the fact that we’re the first parlour of our kind in Orpington. We’re open morning, noon and night, so head in and sample our goods whatever the time of the day.

What We Ordered
Shane ordered waffle with hot white chocolate sauce with kinda brenu chocolates.

Chloe ordered a small frozen yogurt with strawberry sauce and strawberries.
I ordered 15 mini pancakes with hot white chocolate sauce, and ferrero rocher chocolates.

What We Thought
Shane thought his waffle was very tasty, he really loved the flavour and said the white chocolate sauce on top with the kinda brenu chocolate really added to that special touch.

Chloe thought Her yogurt was awesome but she wasn't keen on strawberry sauce.
But she said she loves treats and she wants to go back and have the waffle which daddy ate.

I thought my pancakes was nice and sweet and tasty although the white chocolate sauce I ordered with it was a bit rich for me, but would of enjoyed that more in a separate bowl if i could of dipped the pancakes into it instead of the pancakes sitting it the sauce.

Overall Verdict
Overall I am very impressed the staff was very welcoming and helpful, because we was ording chloe something and wasn't sure if she would like it the lovely manager let her have a little taster on a small spoon which was very kind of him as chloe is very fussy with food.
We didn't have to wait long for our food we only waited about 5 mins which was great.
The food itself was very tasty sweet and enjoyable I would say if you don't like things to sweet or can't eat a lot of it you can share a portion with someone as they are generous with their portion sizes which is great if you have a couple of kids because they can share.
Or if you are on a date you can share a portion with your date.

I would say though with my pancakes it was very nice but the chocolate sauce i ordered was very sweet and the pancakes was sitting in it, this is my personal preference but I think would of been better to have the white chocolate sauce in a separate bowl to dip because the sauce is quite sweet to have too much of.

Not sure what else to say, about treats other then their staff are great.
And the interior of treats is very stunning and the seats were very comfy overall we had a wonderful experience and can't wait to go back again, as I want to have the waffle next time.
And maybe some cocktails when i am feeling better and off my medication.

Delight Touch Review


Hey girls and guys, I am back with a beauty review on some products sent to me by a brand, who wanted me to test out their items for you all, so I have used it a few times and already feel like sharing with you what I think of their products because I am so impressed with them.
hope you like the review feel free to leave any comments below and I will try reply or answer any questions you may have, or alternatively as most of you prefer you can email me.


About The Company
What Delighted Touch Say About Themselves.
For many years we have researched & adopted a healthy lifestyle.
We still enjoy a occasional drink & flavoursome food. However where possible we choose organic food drink & cosmetics over non organic, which can & does contain a whole heap of nasty toxic chemicals & ingredients. These nasty toxins over time break down your bodies natural defences to keeping you fit & well. We were shocked to find out just how much of these chemicals were added to top name high street cosmetic brands. So we decided to start making our own organic cleansers then moisturisers & things grew from there, as we searched for more unique herbal extracts from across the globe that would expand our range with purity & quality & so

A lovely gentle cucumber cleanser made with organic ingredients that are kind to you're skin, I really enjoyed trying this not only did it make my skin soft it made my skin have a nice glow and really made my skin feel and look better even before putting my makeup on, and after putting my makeup on my skin still felt soft and cleansed, It defo gets my approval with been organic and cruelty free it is really kind to everyone, you and the animals etc.

Only downside for me was with not having much of a skincare routine already there was no instructions on the bottle so I had to ask the company how to use it, so for anyone who is not sure you pop it on your face then rinse it off.

INGREDIENTS
Aqua (Water), Ricinus communis (Organic Castor) Seed Oil, Cucumis sativa (cucumber) Extract, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Glyceryl stearate, Calendula officinalis (Calendula) Flower & Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Calendula officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, Prunus dulcis (Sweet Almond) Kernel Oil, Cetearyl alcohol, Benzyl alcohol, salicylic acid, sorbic acid, Aloe barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Citrus aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Citrus aurantium dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Limon Peel Oil, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil, Cymbopogon martini (Palmarosa) leaf oil, Ocimum basilicum (Basil) Leaf Oil, Pelargonium graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Geraniol, Citronellol



Wow such a gentle moisturizer absorbed very well into my skin although i needed a few more squirts to cover my face because it is dry, a nice feel of moisturizer to as some on the highstreet can be too liquidy or harsh on the skin with harsh chemicals etc, but with this one I didn't have a problem as mentioned it is organic and as natural ingredients that really do care for your skin Organic arctic oat and chia seed is a excellent choice for a daily moisturiser,
it improves skin elasticity and won’t clog pores.suitable for sensitive and dry skin.

INGREDIENTS
Aqua (Water), Oenothera biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Glycerin (Veg), Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Glyceryl stearate, Brassica Abyssinica, Salvia hispanica (Chia) seed oil, Butyrospermum parkii (Organic Shea) Butter, Persea gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Benzyl alcohol, salicylic acid, sorbic acid, Macadamia ternifolia (Macadamia) Seed Oil, Cetearyl alcohol, Aloe barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Avena Sativa (Arctic Oat) Seed Extract, Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Aniba rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil, Citrus medica limonum (peel) oil, Citrus aurantium bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Jasminum officinale (Jasmine) Flower extract, Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Oil, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Alcohol, Eugenol


Overall Verdict
Overall I am very impressed not only with delighted touch company but also their products too because All delight touch cleansers and creams are specifically ph balanced to the skin's natural ph. Not only this but the products are cruelty free meaning no harm done to the animals, I really love the cleanser as it is very gentle on my skin and does not sting like some high street cleansers do when I put on my face, so this is a far better cleanser for me.
I also love the moisturizer again very gentle on my skin and absorbed very well into my skin which is usually dry, all the ingredients in these products I tested have great benefits to the skin healing properties antioxidants etc so they are worth the price you pay for them.
As mentioned above the only downside to me was no instructions on the bottle to how to use the cleanser as like myself I wasn't sure to leave it on or rise off because I know every product on market is different so it might be useful for delighted touch to include some instructions especially for people who might be new to using cleansers etc.

My Kitchen Update


Hey guys and girls, thought I would share with you about my kitchen update. Its taken a while to get the post up as I have been busy sorting things out and putting everything back into the new kitchen, anyway I am with Housing association and they have updated my kitchen to make it look better than it originally was it has been a stressful time for us all with not been able to use cooker and washing machine and sink I am surprised I am not grey yet from all the worry and stress involved in having kitchen works done.


First of all they came out and measured up the kitchen and let us choose from a small choice of units, flooring and tiles etc from rixonway which there was only a limited choice due to budget which we want to fussed about as our kitchen was way over 20 years old older than me in fact and I am 25 so it was indeed way overdue an update. They are meant to update then around every ten years so you can tell how overdue i was.

Anyway we choose what we had wanted then they booked for us to have an asbestos check to see where we had asbestos in our flat, which there was low amounts all around the flat walls and ceilings and floors then about 2 weeks later we got the go ahead to have our kitchen updated by rbk, so we moved everything into the lounge, ready for works to be completed which was a bit of a nightmare having plates cups and cooking utensils in the lounge but storage in these flats is not so great, anyway the first day they ripped out the whole kitchen
which you could imagine how noisy that can be, anyway over the next week or so they managed to paint, replaster the wall blow up my electrics when the mortar stuff they use before plastering got into the sockets put in the units laid the lino over the asbestos tiles which was meant to be removed which they never did for some strange reason.

anyway going over the designs we had chosen we wasn't to keen on the white tiles they was going to supply, so i contacted the sidcup tile king in sidcup to see if I could have a small amount of metro black tiles for my kitchen to review which they said yes which made my day because I fell in love with those tiles from looking at kitchen designs on the internet and dreamed of having them in my new kitchen.

Sidcup Tile King Review
About The company

Sidcup tile king have been selling wall and floor tiles for over 35 years,
So they have a vast knowledge within the trade, their ranges are cherry picked from some of the biggest and largest manufactures in the world, they are very friendly and helpful and put their customers first with their needs with wall and floor tiles.
What I Think Of The Tiles
Ever since seeing the tiles online on many tile websites, I fell in love with the lovely glossy stylish design of the metro black tiles and dreamed of having them in my kitchen. 
I even picked up a few samples of them online in red, white grey and black, We held them against the wall in my kitchen and right away loved them all but because I was having black lino we decided to have the black ones, so it would go really well with the black flooring and dark worktops, and breaks up some of the white ie cupboards and walls,ceiling etc.

Overall Verdict Of Sidcup Tile King
We are really impressed with sidcup tile king not only are their team very friendly, they have great knowledge of tiles when we was speaking to them, they are very helpful and ordered the tiles we wanted promptly and had them delivered by a friendly delivery driver.
The tiles was delivered with great care and well in a box to ensure they was safe.
The tiles are amazing glossy and modern, and do look great in pretty much all kitchens, they go on the wall very nicely, with any great adhesive brought from any great hardware store.

I am not only very happy with my tiles sent to me by sidcup tile king, I am very pleased to know they have such a lovely team that works very hard to ensure their customer is happy and gets the right help regards to tiles and everything else you need to know.
They work so hard so I really do take my hat off to them for everything they do for their customers to ensure they get the best service and the best tiles for their kitchen and bathroom projects, i really can't thank tile king enough they have been superstars.

Finished kitchen
                             
Anyway as you can see from the pictures the kitchen from rixonway looks far better,
Much more modern to suit me and my family, the kitchen is of great quality. And now have a sink that is a bit bigger than the old one, and the cupboards are a nice size.
 

The only thing I wasn't happy with my kitchen from rixonway was not been able to have units above my sink due to health and safety regulations set by my housing as apparently they have been sued for someone hitting their head on one whilst washing up, so above my sink looks a bit bare with having one cupboard, so we are thinking of putting a nice shelf there or something. Depending on what looks great in that small space. We also wasn't to pleased about how close a socket they had put close to draining board, doesn't take an idiot to know water and sockets don't mix, which there not much we can do about now, we really feel as if the work is a bit shoddy with them not doing it to a high standard.
We also wasn't to happy with some of the things rbk had done with kitchen like not painting properly, blowing up our electrics, breaking a handle from one of our new cupboards, denting the worktop which was very stressful to experience such things with people doing the kitchen, anyway the kitchen is complete well pretty much rbk still need to come fix anything they have broken and finish little bits off, other then that the kitchen is done.

Our friend paul helped us put up the tiles once the works had been completed which was a bit of a hassle as the walls in my kitchen are not 100% straight for some weird reason, but
Paul worked very hard at placing the tiles and cutting the tiles to make them fit around sockets etc, we could not be more happy so thank you paul for fitting them for us.

After the tiles had been fitted and had time to dry a few days later my hubby grouted them with a wonderful grey tile grout we bought from homebase, for about £10 which looks much nicer than the white tile grout we was thinking of using which we glad we didn't.

Overall We are very pleased with the tiles which make the kitchen look modern.

Special Thanks To

Rixonway for supplying housing with the kitchen.
Sidcup tile king for supplying me with the Tiles.
Paul Our friend for Fitting the Tiles
My hubby for grouting The tiles
Rbk for fitting the kitchen even tho it wasn't a great job

Glitter Lips Molly Dolly


Hey guys and girls, I hope you are all keeping well, sorry I don't blog as much as I would like day to day life is just manic with looking after the home, and my little girl and juggling 101 things, anyway I am back with a review for you for a product not only am i excited to try it, I am excited to share with you what the product is like. 

About glitter lips

Glitter lips is a great lip product not only will your lips look glittery and glamourous, the product is kiss proof yes you heard me once the product as set and you can kiss your hand sometimes at first bit of glitter may come off but lips still look fine, after a while any loose glitter that will be gone, will reveal the rest which is smudge proof water proof and kiss proof.

Warnings
If you think you may be allergic to any of the ingredients please do a patch test 24 hours prior to wearing the product, safety first as much as it is tempting to skip that part.

First Impressions


When it was arrived I was skeptical of how the glitter would stay on lips, also was intrigued to try it with it been easy to use, i wasnt to sure on the glitter pot been small as i opened in carefully and see how careful you have to be otherwise you will end up with glitter everywhere meaning you will have to replace it if that should happen.


On the first use I was very excited to try so applied a nice small amount of the sticky gloss to my lips which felt a bit like glue very sticky (so be careful not to stick your lips together),then picked up my glitter pot and opened it carefully trying not to shake and spill the glitter I just about managed it, I put on some glitter with the applicator which seemed to work ok, although do feel a dif brush may of applied it better but it seemed to of worked nicely.
I

Anyway This was the finished result to what it looks like once applied which ain't too bad, although if wearing on night out etc i would suggest maybe taking it with you in your bag if you want to touch up the product as day to day things ie drinking,talking smoking can make it gradually come off your lips, which is pretty normal like with most lipsticks.


What I like about the product.
I love how easy it is to apply to the lips,just apply the gloss then the glitter.
I also love how glittery lips are after applying the product to your lips.

What I don't like about the product

I wasnt keen on how sticky my lips felt after applying the gloss,
It felt almost like putting glue on lips very sticky, saying that if it wasn't sticky then the glitter wouldn't of gone on, so do say the sticky feeling  will take getting used to.

Also didn't like the fact the glitter pot is tiny, which means you have to open the pot carefully otherwise your floor will be covered in glitter, so you may want to put out of reach of young children and anyone who may be prone to touching your things.

Overall Verdict

Overall I do like the product but a few things for me kinda makes me not like it such as the glitter pot been that small and cos it filled to top you have to be careful opening it,
I would of liked to see maybe a bigger pot which is deeper which would be great to prevent spillage. Also if they had a bigger pot they maybe could use that as an advantage for their brand and to buyer to sell big refill bottles to fill up the pot with meaning you never run out.

This aside I do like the product itself I love how nice and glittery lips are after the product is applied makes me feel very girly and glamourous. The other thing i didn't like about applying the product was how sticky my lips felt they felt very tight like they had glue on them and once glitter was on felt very glittery, but I guess if they wasn't sticky  then the glitter wouldnt of stuck that well, so as mentioned further up the sticky feeling is something that I will have to get used to as well as glittery feel, which is ok But thought I would mention it so you know this beforehand.

Q&As


Where can I buy Glitter Lips?
Superdrugs sell the glitter lips, and so does the beauty boulevard and this is beauty mart also sell glitter lips, please check out all of the stores listed above if you wish to buy glitter lips or to check stock levels if you're thinking of buying soon.

How much Is Glitter Lips to buy?
Rrp is £12.50 for 30ml which is bit pricey but not to much as the glitter lasts ages.

What colours Does glitter lips come in?
It comes in many gorgeous colours blues pinks and more,
you can see which colours they have by visiting the website.

LottoLand


Hey guys and girls I am back just a quick review on a site i reviewed which they let me have a play on a few of their games on the site with £25 but i wasn't careful and lost it all as I was just playing for fun rather than trying to win anything, and playing without paying much attention, I get distracted quite easily but anyway here is a bit about the site.

Before we start I am not a big lover of gambling but do play the odd euro-millions now and then or buy the odd scratch card, so walk away when I lose so I don't lose too much.

About Lottoland


Lottoland is a online gambling site abit like any other one, with scratch cards, and online games such as black jack, but with lottoland you can also do the euro-millions on there which I found was a great thing about the site especially as i recently tried signing up to national lottery website and it wouldn't let me without proving my identity etc which seemed a lot of hassle for wanting to do a line on the euro-millions, anyway with lottoland as i said it is easy to sign up and get playing, which can be a good thing and bad thing, a good thing meaning it quick and easy no hassle, but a bad thing if you're addicted to gambling.


What I Liked about Lottoland
I loved how quick and easy it is to set up and get playing, meaning no messing around.
I really love how you can do the euro-millions on the site as well means I don't have to go to shop last minute waiting n a queue and missing the deadline to play.
I also loved how quick the site was no lagging and slow games like with bigger sites.

What I didn't like about Lottoland.
This is a hard one I couldn't find much I didn't like other then as with all gambling sites it gets addictive but that comes with all sites like this anyway, so would say if you have a gambling habit or love gaming too much maybe either stay clear or set yourself limits so you don't go over and lose to much money, if you do lose walk away whilst you still can.

Overall Verdict.


I really like the site It is easy to join, and the site is fast and quick.
The site has lots to offer such as games, scratch cards, and you can even do your euro-millions on there which is an added bonus so to speak. My only concern is how addictive online gambling is and can be meaning I do worry if more and more people will become addicted through great sites that run quick and make it easy to spend money, saying this you can set limits on there which is a great way if you don't wanna spend too much.

I really love the site layout easy on the eye making it easy to see what you are doing.
I love how you can invite friends to join and if your friend wins you win the same payout which is cool and a great idea especially if you both don't want to gamble that much but still can win more by your friends winning. But again with this it could lead you to making friends want to join and they could become addicted, so my only advice would be if you're worried about a friend gambling addiction to seek help, remember you can win all the time with these sites and that some people have lost everything through gambling so if you gamble you are doing so at your own risk play reasonably, set limits and leave if you lose money do not try win back what you have or may lose as this can make it worse.
