Bandzee The only hairband your ever Need


copyright bandzee


Hey guys n girls sorry the delay this should of been posted a week ago but i have not been well I have had a bad cold more like flu I felt so rough and couldn't bring myself to writing so apologies to everyone, hope you are all well, Today I am reviewing bandzee sent to me by bandzee. Before we start, I have been sent this product as a gift in exchange for a honest review. As always views and thoughts on the product are my own and I will always state any good and bad I find in a product where I can, as I believe there is good and bad in everything.

What Is Bandzee?


So bandzee sent me a few packs of their super cool design bandzees to anyone who doesn't know what bandzee are, they are a super cool hair tie that not only looks pretty on your wrist. We all know how frustrating it is when you can only find one hair band you do to tie your hair up tighter and tighter then all of a sudden snap, well with bandzee kiss goodbye to getting your heart broken by your hairbands, who are disloyal to your hair leaving kinks every time you tie it up, bandzee is your new best friend and very loyal to you and your hair. It won't break up on you, it won't damage your hair or your feelings.

First Impression?


Upon arrival I opened the envelope and was really surprised to see the lovely designs inside,
Even my little girl was like I want them, I want to wear one on my wrist, When I opened the pack and removed a bandzee I stumbled across some wording on the cardboard packaging, and then looked to see if my other two packs had it which they did but different words, which I really loved because they are quite inspiring words and thought that was one of the great things with packaging, for the amount of young girls or guys who will be using banzee nice to see such inspirational quotes on there too inspire them. So when I first tried using a bandzee on my little girl I was abit skeptical as she sometimes moans when I try tie her hair as normal hair bands can be tight and uncomfy, but with bandzee she didn't seem to make as much of a fuss when i was tying her hair In fact I could tie her hair quite well, and it wasn't to tight like some new hairbands are.

Did You Know?

Bandzee also do subscriptions, which means you can get a pack of bandzee sent to your door each month, for 4.95 each month which means you save £1 per pack as bandzee retail at 5.95 this might be idea for someone you know wanting a subscription that’s different.
Might be good for a gift for a friend who always loses their hairbands?

Overall Verdict!

Overall I am impressed with bandzee they tie your hair and also look good on the wrist, they are not too tight to wear in your hair or on wrist, they easy to use and made doing my daughters hair much easier without all the moaning it hurts and it is too tight, bandzee gets the thumbs up from my little girl and me and my partner, we really love the designs and how each pack as a lovely inspirational quote on which is a good thing for anyone reading, positive messages and quotes have great impact on young people, the only thing I am not sure on is the price purely because I am used to buying big bulk hair bands and getting loads but putting the quantity aside and judging price on how well bandzee worked I think the price isn't too bad. even though I am impressed with bandzee I will continue to use normal hair bands as well until every last hairband I own snaps and breaks, then may think about investing in bandzees because they do not break easily like hair bands do.

Not sure what else to say other than why not buy a pack and see if you like bandzee and if they meet all your hair needs, one thing for sure I am hoping bandzee will bring out different sizes like bigger ones for people who may have loads of hair or loads of dreadlocks and wants to tie them all up together.

AMAZING MAGAZINE

(Amazing Magazine review and giveaway)
Hi guys and girls I am back with a review and giveaway for you all.
Hope you enjoy this review feel free to get your kids to come read with you.
To see if they like the sound of this fun educational magazine.





The world's most AMAZING children's educational magazine is not only fun to read for children but is full of really cool educational stuff that will help them learn and have fun at the same time. The magazines are also good to keep for any school work they may have on the topics listed in the magazines which is a bonus, as kids homework can be pretty tough even for us adults.



Amazing! is a monthly 36 page publication packed with articles, facts,stories And an annual subscription is just £49 for 12 issues (a whole year)
Teachers and schools receive discounts!



Some of the topics your find with this super cool magazine are the following.

MATHS

ENGLISH

SCIENCE

HISTORY
GEOGRAPHY
ARTS AND LOTS MORE

As you can see many great subjects and what better way to get your kids interested in learning then a cool magazine that makes learning fun for all kids aged 7+ although you could get them for young kids who may be advanced for their age with their learning progress.


Here is a few sneak peaks from the 2 magazines I have


Chloe says the magazine is brilliant, she says she really likes the funny boogy recipe which involves popcorn and Tasty gungy green stuff, She also really loved the cool word searches in the book and said they are not only fun to do but have cool words.

She said some of the words in magazine are tricky to read but she loves when mummy and daddy sit down with her to read it and laugh at silly bits and have fun talking about the wonderful things and playing the little quizzes Guessing the answer right before mummy and daddy makes me feel very clever.


My thoughts overall

I really enjoyed reading the magazines with chloe, normally with books i struggle and lose interest rather quick and reading hurts my eyes, but with magazines I can enjoy reading alot more so not only did it help me be able to sit down and read with chloe, it made her happy that we could sit down and learn cool things together.


I love how there is many different things in each magazine making it fun for adults and children so rather then been on one thing as you turn the pages there is always something new to find out the cartoons in the magazine along with the info makes learning fun.



I recommend these magazines  to anyone who has children who love magazines and comics and want to use that as a great advantage for their child to learn new things.
These magazines are a great way to get kids interested in history maths etc so would also be helpful for homework times especially if there is something in the magazine that they can write about for a history project, or science etc with the things to make in the book that also comes in handy too if you're stuck for ideas what to do on a rainy day.



As you can tell overall I am impressed with the magazine and its price.
the only downside to the magazine is there is no free gifts on the front, which is a shame even if it was little bits n bobs that is needed for the make and do things that would come in handy or even fact cards with science facts to keep or something to that effect.

I have a copy of the magazine to give away for 10 lucky readers.

SIMPLY WASHING TABLETS


Hey guys and girls I am back again this time with washing tablets, yay I love cleaning and all things lovely, although you maybe wanting to escape now if you are not one for housework or laundry, however you can always read this and recommend the tablets to a friend or your maid if you happen lucky enough like that and have someone who washes clothes for you.

First of all I was sent these washing tablets free of charge (gift) in return for a honest review.

These are both products





First of all both products are pretty much the same apart from ones allergen and fragrance free, and the other is non bio lightly fragranced. For me I had pretty much the same results clean great selling clothes although I did use my lovely comfort washing conditioner with my washing because I had the same results I am not going to go into too much detail but instead break up in bullet points the product details, then of course my overall verdict.

Overall Verdict



After using both products I am very impressed with how well my washing came out.
The washing smelt clean, and was clean too although if you have heavy soiled stains ie mud etc you may want to use a stain remover with the tabs to ensure you get the stains out properly.

I was impressed how i only needed 1- tablets per wash as currently I was using a whole draw full of powder as well as a few squirts of laundry gel to get my washing clean.
The fact I only needed 1-2 tablets made me shocked to how well it cleaned my clothes.
Im also really impressed with how well they dissolve.

My favorite out of the 2 products was the allergen free purely because they are ideal if you have any skin allergies like eczema etc.

The only downside for the product for me is the price as I am not used to paying out a lot of money for my washing things as i normally get discounts and deals on bulk buys.
Though these tabs would be great for when you travel to stay with friends and family if you want to wash your clothes in allergen free or didn't want to use your family's washing powder if you felt it would leave them short.

I defo recommend buying the tablets though purely because allergen free and because they easy to store and transport if need be.

Overall verdict 8 out of 10 because of the price.



Thanks for reading

UPBEAT CHOCOLATE ORANGE


UPBEAT CHOCOLATE ORANGE
Hey guys and girls, so we are in febuary and I am back with another review for you all.
As some of you know I previously have reviewed some upbeat drinks by the good whey.
in the lovely strawberry flavour and also the mango flavour which wasn't really to my liking.
Anyway I am back Trying the New chocolate orange flavour thanks to the good whey who sent me some money of vouchers so I could try the new flavour for you.
 I am A big lover of Chocolate orange chocolates and jaffa cakes,
so I am pretty excited to test these to see how yummy they are for you.


THE REVIEW


Well first impressions looking at the bottle is a nice design on the bottle itself.
Info on the bottle is nice and clear easy to read and very informative.
Anyway Me and hubby both opened a bottle each and took the first sip,
right away I was disapointed to the fact the orange overpowered the chocolate and wasn't really what I  was expecting at all which is a real shame as I normally really love chocolate orange, Hubby also says the orange overpowered the chocolate for him too.

Hubby also says he can still taste the whey in the drink as well, which is not really a good thing in his opinion, for me I couldn't taste the whey though so maybe depends on how good your taste buds are, I am not really sure what else to say as I am sorry to say this drink wasn't to my or my hubbys taste buds.
Also want to add it left a weird taste in my mouth afterwards



PROS
HIGH PROTEIN - 20g
150 CALORIES   
LOW FAT
ONLY NATURALLY OCCURRING,
SUGAR FROM MILK AND FRUIT



CONS

ORANGE OVERPOWERS THE CHOCOLATE
LEFT A FUNNY TASTE IN MY MOUTH.



OVERALL VERDICT

Overall I am sorry to say this drink wasn't to my liking The orange overpowered the chocolate, 
which is a shame as me and hubby are a lover of chocolate orange.
Also this flavour left a weird taste in my mouth afterwards which wasn't to nice.
However as always this is only my opinion on the drinks as obviously we all like different things and  have different tastes, So if you're unsure to try this maybe see if you can pick up a bottle from your local tesco you can check where they are stocked on the good whey website.
