Merry Christmas 2015

Have you been good this year?

Hey guys and girls so I turned 25 on the 14th december feeling rather old suffering bad knees and all sorts anyway xmas is now fast approaching, So I would like to write a post incase I am not back before new year's eve.

So christmas is a time for giving and spending with loved ones, so many people though are lonely and maybe spending it alone, so would like to remind you that it is the season to give so why not see if any of your friends who are single etc or even a elderly neighbor who might not have not much family want to come for dinner.

Also if you are lonely this christmas please reach out to those around you there are many charities that can help also many churches and places also help people who might feel lonely, remember you don not have to be a single person with no family to be lonely even people with loads of family can become lonely. 

Here are a few charities who can help.

Anyway keeping this short and sweet because I know how december can become busy,
with people to see, gifts to wrap and other little preparations.
Here's a little fun way courtesy of paddypower to see if you are on santa's good list or naughty list this year. post your results in the comments section along with what your looking forward to this christmas.

Thanks for reading

Hey girls and guys I am back this time to tell you about a company.
I do not have a product to review but i was invited to a very nice event,
with high tea and handbags, unfortunately I couldn't make it.

The event clashed with my plans for my kew gardens trip however the company was overjoyed,
when I said Sorry i can't make it but I will still go ahead and research your brand,
and tell all my lovely readers about your company and what you sell.

Because most events come with goody bags they have been kind to send me one,
to say thank you for been kind to still write about their company,
even though not being able to attend their event.

but have been sent images from the event to show you.

Photos of the event I sadly couldn't Attend.

Xupes was founded by joe McKenzie and his father frank.

Joe founded the company after graduating at university, funding his university life by selling second hand designer watches on the side giving him a brainwave to start up a wonderful business which has bloomed and blossomed and continues to grow  more and more each day, making hundreds if not thousands of customers happy each and every day

and even laptops and whatever else we like to hide in our bags.

which lasts for ages and is good for your skin.

Well anyway eco egg have contacted me asking me if I can try a product for them,
I said yes of course with this blog (when I have time to of course) being one of my escapes from anxiety and painful knees,day to day stresses and what not.

Company Info
Eco egg are a company who aim to make as many products we use on a day to day basis but much more gentle for our skin, health and our pocket meaning they put us first.

One of their first products was the ecoegg laundry egg which I reviewed for you before,
since launching the egg and getting amazing feedback from everyone who brought it,
they decided to expand out and make more products that are great too.

Products to help us be good to the environment and good to ourselves not using harsh chemicals meaning our skin is not absorbing bad chemicals meaning we are not getting irritated skin and eczema isn't flaring up if we have it.

Thoughts about the product before it arrived.

well being ocd and loving bleaching door handles, floors and cleaning the worktops over 30 times a day I do love to clean and it is my escape from depression and over thinking.
anyway my first thoughts about the product was omg its not gonna be as good as my products I own ie beach and touch grease cleaners, I guess i was a bit skeptic cos it is a natural cleaner I get paranoid about germs at the best of times.

First impressions when it arrived.

just like chloe's expression here i was still abit skeptical.

Wow this looks great, great size product and feels heavy for a product of its size.
I was still a bit skeptic about how this product could clean as well as other products I own.
I opened it had a whiff not to bad smell smells a bit citrusy and another smell I can't place my finger on so not a bad smell at all nothing too strong like what I own, so again still a bit worried to how this was gonna clean anything as well as bleach.

First impression on first time using it.

just like chloe's expression here i was overjoyed.

Wow I wish i had of got a photo I had this weird sticker residue stuck to my window
which bleach washing up liquid etc couldn't get rid of so we left it there on the window.
So anyway we placed a little bit of the eco egg hard surface cleaner on the dampened sponge and wiped over in a circular motion and off came the sticker residue I couldn't believe my eyes at all hubby was in shock and was like how? wow this is good stuff.

Overall Verdict

Well From the first time using it it had me and hubby in disbelief to how it could get rid of stubborn sticker residue on the window when more powerful cleaners couldn't.
I love the scent of the product which is not lethal like 95% of the products on the market.

I Also love the fact that you only need a small amount which gets rid of stubborn dirt,
meaning the product lasts longer than most products we all own meaning it is not only good for your health with being a natural cleaner it is good for your pocket too saving you money not only because it lasts ages but because it works too.

I am not sure what else to say other then I am still in shock to how it works,
really well compared to strong more expressive products I own.
the eco egg hard surface cleaner is £9.99 to buy from eco egg.

( hard surface cleaner was once on qvc and sold out on the first couple of airings)

Before you go ahead and buy don't tell anyone I told you.
There will be a offer on on the 5th of december,  stay tuned on eco egg site to find out more about the huge deal on all the products on their site they have coming up.
I wouldn't want you to miss out on it.

Thanks for reading
