Always Dailies Fresh and Protect Normal Pantyliners Review

Always dailies have been a godsend to me. After having children i must admit i was a little embarrassed about having slight incontinence. I was paranoid when i was out and about that i would have "a little accident" . So i was super excited when i was sent these always dailies fresh&protect to try.

The box is designed brilliantly and has a side opening tab which opens and closes so you can grab and go as needed. The box is in a lovely purple colour with pretty net like patterns.

The pantyliners are super thin and very flexible so perfect for people with active lifestyles. They are demagogically tested so they are soft on skin. They have a light scent on them which helps in neutralising odours up to 100% which in turn makes me feel more confident when I'm out and about. They have a breathable design which helps with comfort, dryness and freshness. I am so glad i have found these and will be purchasing and using more in future. 
The average price for a box of 32 is £1.80 so they are great value. They are available in most supermarkets and boots, superdrugs etc. They are also available to purchase on Amazon. 

My Rating:
Packagng 10/10
Comfort: 10/10
Reliability 10/10
Price: 10/10

I was sent these to review. All opinions are my own.

Amazon discounts and freebies

Everyone loves to save money on purchases, and if your like me you will scour the Internet for cashback, discount codes and bargain prices. Along my way i have come across 4 sites which offer amazon discounts. These sites are:


Vipon offer codes that you enter at checkout to get the item at a reduced price or sometimes for free. There are a limited number of codes available so you do have to be quick. Some examples of what i have purchased with codes from vipon are pictured below.

Now to use vipon just go to their site and register and then confirm your account via email. Then in the drop down bar click and select low to high and click search and your off.

amzoneclub :-

amzoneclub is a smaller than vipon and the deals are not instant. you have to request a deal and wait for the seller to approve you. You register and search the same way as you would on vipon. Here is an example pic of a product i requested which i have now been approved and have ordered.


 elitedealclub is a little different. Their deals are instant but they update their deals once a day at      10 am and codes for free or heavily discounted items tend to get snapped up pretty quick so you need to be on the ball. you need to register and confirm your email address to join. An example of a product i had a code for and purchased is below.

dealhustl is relatively new to me. I kind of joined and forgot about it until i saw an email from them in my junk box. dealhustl require you to have an active mobile phone number when registering as they text you your password and i think they also do this to help deter resellers. Their deals go live at 1pm and 10pm daily and again you need to be quick to get a code. Below is an example of what i purchased with a code from their site yesterday. I had these candle sets for £1 each reduced from £14.99.

I would also recommend you join the facebook group posted below. This group was created by Dragons Den candidate Deepak Tailor. In here we share deals, freebies, misprices and glitches.

12 years with my rescue kitty Mickey

This is Mickey my bossy and temperamental 15 year old cat. We adopted him when he was 3 years old from cat protection and he was so shy and timid. From what i was informed from cats protection he was rescued after being mistreated by his owner. Fast forward 12 years and he is now overly confident and rules the roost aswell as ruling half the street. He has his own territory (that he marked out) that he surveys at least 4 times a day. And he has this ability (i like to think its a super power!)  to sense when another cat puts a paw in it. He can go from being fast asleep to doing a runner out the cat flap in 2 seconds. Last week he had trip to the vets to have his teeth removed (due to old age and catching too many birds) and for 3 days after he sulked and refused to even look at me so it was obvious he was holding a grudge. He has now decided to get pay back by waking me up at 4am for the last 4 days demanding food and how does he wake me up? By literally licking my ear..... yep you heard me right. And do i give in? yes! just so i can get some sleep. But although he has has his days where he can be grumpy (i mean who doesn't?) , he is still a very loving cat, who loves cuddles (on his own terms) and loves being fussed. From the first day he put his paw in our house i honseslty think he was just relieved to be somewhere safe and soemwhere he is treated lovingly. He has fully cemented his paw print on our families heart and we cant ever imagine him not being here.

    Dr. Oetker Ristorante review

    I am a huge pizza lover but usually tend to avoid frozen pizza's. So when i was invited to review a pizza from the Dr. Oetker Ristorante range i was very intrigued and the first thought that popped into my head was, will it taste as good as a fresh pizza. Well i can tell you all that i am now a frozen pizza convert! The packaging was inviting and well presented and displayed a picture of the pizza which looked so yummy!   I tried the Ristorante Pizza Pollo and it was bursting with flavour! 

    The smell that was coming from the oven whilst the pizza was cooking was so enticing! The pizza toppings included slices of marinated chicken breast and a mix of spinach, tomatoes, sweetcorn, mozzarella and Edam cheese. The toppings were very generous and tasted amazing. The base cooked beautifully and was lovely and crispy and as soon as i pulled it out of the oven everyone wanted a piece. Dr. Oetker Ristoranteis now my go to pizza! And dont forget if you pick up a promotional pack you can get a free pizza! 

    Taste 10/10
    Product and packaging 10/10
