Sainsbury’s are being all festive this year and have released stupid flavoured tea because stupid people like me will go out and buy them for the novelty value like stupid bloody idiots.

Look.

Naturally, even though I am stupid enough to buy such stupid nonsense, I also know a good blog post when I see one. So, here is my review of this glorious shit.

(more…)

Hello there, it’s me.

I’ve been trying out Snoreeze’s Snoring Relief Oral Strips, in an attempt to prevent Gem punching me in the head at 2 in the morning. I originally planned to do a week’s worth of videos charting my progress, but as you’ll see, things didn’t go to plan.

Enjoy the videos, and check out Snoreeze’s website for all sorts of details on all the Snoring Relief products they offer.

So, a bit of an introduction to start things off…

and a demonstration of the problem at hand…

Soon it becomes apparent I don’t have a week’s worth of material…

So I wrap things up in a nice, snore-free bow…

So, that’s your review, they work. Not much else I can say.

Like the vids and subscribe if you’re not totally offended by such things, please. Ta.

Zzzzzzzzzzz…

Hello everyone.

I’ve been sent some coconut water-based juice to try, and I have done a video review.

Watch it if you’d like…

So there you go.

For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water is available from Asda for £1.99 a pop.

Find out more by following the For Goodness Shakes Instagram Feed, or their Twitter account.

Here’s the science bit, in a fancy different font to make you extra concentrate…

For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water is a new range of deliciously-flavoured soft drinks which give 10g of protein, zero fat and no added sugar.
Registered Nutritionist and sports nutrition specialist Claire Baseley says. “Many fitness fans, of every ability, want to be strong but lean and for them this is a fantastic addition to their diet.  With zero fat and 10g protein, the nutritional profile is extremely positive, the taste is great and it’s an excellent alternative to sugary energy drinks. Furthermore, CoconutWater has fantastic hydrating properties allowing you to combine hydration and recovery in one drink.”
Made in Chelsea’s Steph Pratt says,”I love going to the gym, working out, staying fit and eating healthily – for me it’s about looking good, feeling good and staying toned.  Protein is a vital part of my diet and something like For Goodness Shakes’ Protein Coconut Water tastes great, has no added sugar, no fat, no salt but does add some extra protein, perfect!”
For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water comes in both Tropical and Mango & Orange flavours and is available exclusively in ASDA.
Former international swimmer, owner of Sculpt Fitness, and one of the country’s leading personal trainers, David Jones, believes protein water could benefit a wide range of clients,“Consumers are now looking for more than just a functional benefit in their sports nutrition products. They want something to fit their needs as well as tasting great. For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water not only delivers on taste, but also gives a much needed protein boost throughout your day, not to mention the great hydrating properties of coconut water.
“Adding extra protein around training will help and, because it comes in a light format like water, is even easier to get on board – 10 grams of protein, zero fat or salt and just 52 calories per 330ml is fantastic.
Claire Baseley says, “Many people want the benefit of extra protein but maybe don’t want to drink a protein supplement during or straight after training.  A refreshing and flavourful protein coconut water eliminates some of the issues around that.
“For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water has 10g of protein and almost 2000mg BCAA which will help with growth and maintenance of lean, functional muscles when used as part of a balanced diet and training plan.

I hope you enjoyed all that, don’t forget to pester me on Twitter and Facebook, fund my shenanigans on Patreon, and if you really insist, I’ll have a Medio Latte.

Hi there.

Here’s a video review of the new CB12 boost chewing gum.

I had to be quiet because I am at Meg’s dance class, and they don’t like people making noises.

Anyway, hope you liked it.

Check out CB12 boost’s website, and all the usual clicky things that make me happy.

Hi again,

So, following the er… success of the previous ‘Germans have sent me rude things’ post, I thought I’d just share the next few tweets from the following night, when I unboxed the second package from those lovely, dirty people…

If you remember my little teaser from last time you’ll know what to expect, I imagine when they make this whole thing into a Netflix series, they’ll edit into a more suspenseful style. (more…)

Right then, we’re motoring through these quickie reviews, aren’t we? Yeah, mad skillz.

Ok, final one for now, because we have to go to the in-laws to a barbecue and to see my sister-in-law’s new baby, which will obviously not be as cute as my new baby, obviously.

This is an August LP310 Air Mouse and Wireless Presenter.
“What’s an Air Mouse and Wireless Presenteramijigger?” I hear you ask, as you sip your gin because it is a bank holiday and you can’t agree which movie to watch on Netflix. This is what it is…

Another seemingly boring product, another exciting quickie review.

This is lamp. I love lamp.

So what you’ve got here is an August LEC315 LED lamp, with dimmer function, 3 temperature settings and a USB charger.
