January Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

January Degustabox

It seems like ages since I last welcomed a Degustabox into my house. I think it’s because the Christmas one arrived a bit earlier than usual and this one a little later; not that I’m complaining, I always love the arrival of a new Degustabox!

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

January’s box included quite a few brands I had never heard of, with some I will certainly buy again. I did enjoy everything in it though.

So what was inside the January Degustabox?

Panasonic Gourmet Processor | First Impressions

Panasonic Precision Gourmet Processor - First Impressions

As part of my role as a Panasonic Kitchen ambassador, I have previously tried out the Steam Combi Oven and the High Power Blender; both of which I was absolutely amazed by and I think would be a great addition to any kitchen. Recently I was sent the third product to try out as part of my ambassadorship; the Gourmet Processor. I do already own a food processor, but just a bog standard one with a few different blade attachments; nothing like this one.

Introducing the Precision Gourmet Processor, the latest all-in-one convenience. Japanese glass touch programme interface technology offers easy and elegant operation when preparing food in a variety of ways, ensuring your fresh ingredients become spectacular meals, every time.

November Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

I was really excited for November’s Degustabox, which was the Christmas box. I can’t help it, I love Christmas and get excited by anything related to it!

Lekto Woodfuels | Review

Lekto Woodfuels review

Now winter is well and truly here, I’m finding that I am needing the heating on pretty much all day. But as I mentioned in this post, we have a solid fuel boiler which means lots of wood and coal is needed for the next few months!

We do have lots of trees that need cutting down, that we can use; but then they need drying out and that takes a long time. We also have lots ‘lying around’ that my father in law left behind  (that’s a whole other story), but this involves chopping too, so it ends up being lots of hard work!

Purchasing from Lekto Woodfuels takes away all of that hard work; the wood fuel is delivered so you can put it on your fire or stove immediately.

The Book Of Everyone | Review & Giveaway

The Book Of Everyone review

My husband is such a difficult person to buy presents for. He never really asks for anything (except a new car, but I can’t afford that) so I kind of have to guess what he would like and he usually ends up with lots of little bits. He doesn’t really read (so not like me) so I don’t buy him books, but The Book Of Everyone is a different kind of book. I think he will really like this one, and maybe you know, actually read it…

We created The Book of Everyone as a gigantic heart-thumping, grin-inducing, lip-wobbling celebration of the individual. Your mum, your son, your lifelong friend, your local baker and smile-maker. Because everyone needs to feel loved and unique. And knowing that you share 50% of your DNA with a banana or a billion atoms with Shakespeare is really very important.

Founded by creative directors Jonny Biggins, Jason Bramley, and Steve Hanson, the idea was sparked when Steve purchased all the newspapers on the birth of his son Saul as a keepsake for his 21st birthday (please don’t tell him, he still doesn’t know). They set to work on creating a personalisation platform that could instantly create a book tailored to anyone, stuffed full with curious facts and curveball miscellany, all set against a backdrop of world events.

It’s a daily labour of love that involves all our favourite artists, designers and photographers. Today, we are a multicultural team of writers, designers, technologists, marketers, and lifelong dreamers with hearts set on spreading a big fat dollop of wonderful across the world. With over 100,000 books in 175 countries so far, we’ve made a start. Just around 7 billion to go.

Joosed! Junior | Review & giveaway

Joosed Junior review

My boys love the occasional ‘special juice’ which sometimes contain a lot of added sugar, so they don’t have them all of the time. Just as a treat every so often, which I don’t mind. But when Bensons The Juicers got in touch with me to see if the boys would like to review some of their Joosed! Junior juices, I had a read up on them and thought they sounded healthier than others. Pure fruit juice, mixed with spring water. That’s it.

Our fruit is shaken from the trees, not stirred in a factory. Den-making and tree climbing is tiring! If you need to catch your breath after catching the baddies, this is the best sidekick for your adventure. Sweet and zippy to the core and mixed in British spring water: drink this goodie and play longer. 

  • Made from pure Spring Water and real fruit juices.
  • Full of fruity goodness and NO ADDED SUGAR, and therefore better for you.
  • Joosed! uses only the finest natural ingredients, selected because they taste so good.
  • Joosed! drinks are 100% free from preservatives or artificial flavourings.
  • One of your 5 a day.

October Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

October Degustabox subscription Box review

It’s always an exciting day when I know our Degustabox is on its way. I love opening it up and seeing what’s inside. There hasn’t really been any that I’ve been disappointed in; I think there has only been 2 or 3 products over the last few months that I haven’t particularly liked. So for the amount you get in each Degustabox, I think that’s pretty good going!

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

So what was inside the October Degustabox?

Panasonic High Power Blender | First Impressions

Panasonic high power blender - first impressions

You may remember a few months ago I announced that I was a Panasonic Kitchen ambassador for the coming year. The first product I reviewed  was the Panasonic Steam Combi Oven. I also shared this coconut coffee triple layer cake that I baked in it.

The latest product I have received from the Panasonic kitchen is the High Power Blender MX-ZX1800SXC – which also boasts the functions of a food processor!

Feed your culinary imagination with the High Power Blender, the latest in fresh food preparation and kitchen convenience. Boasting a wide range of programmes and easy-to-use features, the blender transforms fresh and healthy ingredients into nutritious food and tasty beverages for gourmet meals.
