Christmas Branch Lights from LED Hut

At Christmas I love to snuggle down on the sofa, watch old Christmas movies, eat rubbish food and get in the Christmas spirit. One thing which I love to do is decorate my home for Christmas. Recently we were given the chance to review some beautiful Christmas LED Indoor Decorative Branch Lights, as soon as they arrived they were a hit with the whole family.

As soon as we received the branch lights, we were instantly impressed. They had Christmas written all over them. The branches were decorated with silver glitter and on each branch there was a mix of faux berries and LED lights. The branches were a good size and I found that they fitted on our sideboard well in a vase or on the floor in a vase.

The lights were easy to set up and all I needed to do was simply add 3 batteries to the battery compartment which was situated just off one of the LED branches. I was then able to turn the lights on and off with a on and off switch which was on the battery compartment.

As soon as I turned the LED lights on, I was able to see the lights glisten. They gave off a warm glow and enough light to make the room look cosy. I found that they looked great on but also off due to there unique sparkle. When visitors come into my home this Christmas I know they will adore the branch lights also.

I was surprised at the quality of the branches, the branches were thick, designed well and they looked very stylish and pretty. Although we were sent the branches for Christmas, I think that the branches would be suitable to use all year round. The branches would look great next to a fire place, in a vase in the front window and even hanging down from the doorway.

Priced at just £7.99 with free delivery using the code VATFREEDEL, I think these branches are a huge bargain this Christmas. I will be looking to get more Christmas lights for my whole home on the LED Hut website.

Rockface Men's Range Review

At Christmas I always find that men are hard to buy for. Most of the men in my family love toiletries and at Christmas they often receive many men's gift sets. Last year Ben managed to rack up 5 gift sets which is pretty impressive however all of the gift sets were the same and in the end Ben got board of using them. This Christmas instead of getting gift sets for the men in your life why not consider the Rockface Men's range?

Over the past few weeks, Ben has been trying out the Rockface Men's range. Ben is someone who often likes to try new products. Although he likes to stick to what he knows, he is always open to trying something new. He know's what looks good and he often tell's me what feels good on his skin, what scents he likes and how good the product is. 

Rockface make 8 different products, all of which Ben has tried over the past few weeks.

Shave Gel
Ben is not a fan of shave gel normally as he prefers shaving foam however he got on well with this gel. This gel delivers an extra-thick creamy foam with active cooling and moisturising ingredients. 200 ml - £4.25

Shave Butter
Out of all the products, this is the product which Ben would use the least. This product is designed for softening and preparing the skin for a clean shave. 75 ml - £4.99

Active Body Spray
Ben often enjoys freshening up with body spray before work and at the weekends, on his days off. This is a great addition to add to his collection of scents. The fragrance smells great and reminds me of a citrus sort of smell. This is the perfect product to use with Rockface 48 hour deodorant. 150 ml - £3.49

All Weather Moisturiser
A rich all weather moisturiser with added shea butter to help protect, energise the skin and to help reduce UV impact. This is a great product for those that work outside or enjoy sports such as sailing. Some moisturisers can be extremely oily but this is not the case with the Rockface all weather moisturiser. 100 ml - £5.49

This is the perfect treat for you skin which can be used once a week. When using this product you will feel refreshed. This product is perfect to clear away the dead skin cells, it will leave your skin feeling smooth and healthy. 150 ml - £4.99

Post Shave Balm
This smoothing balm is specially formulated with allantoin and aloe vera to hydrate and soothe skin after shaving. Ben found this was a great product, if your skin gets irritated after shaving the post shave balm will be a definite hit. 100 ml - £4.99

Anti-perspirant Deodorant
Ben loves to stay clean and fresh, he always finds it important to smell good. It keeps you fresh for 48 hours. This anti-perspirant deodrant has a nice fragrance of citrus. The smell is not over powering. It is a great product to team up with the Active Body Spray. 150 ml - £2.99

Shower Wash
This product offers 2 uses - To clean hair as well as the body. Ben head can often get irritated when using some sorts of shampoo however since using this shampoo he has had no trouble at all. This is the perfect item to add to a going away bag. 200 ml - £3.73

Overall Ben was impressed with not only the quality of the products from the Rockface range but also the price. He found that the products met up to his expectations and he actually thought the products would be priced a little higher. Ben believes these would make perfect stocking fillers this Christmas. The great thing about Rockface is that all items can be purchased separate so you are able to mix and match the products to suit tastes, You can buy Rockface products from Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Superdrug and also online from their website.

Goodmans Copper Canvas Radio

From a young age I grew up listening to music and enjoying it. When I was smaller I used to lay in front of the TV and watch Top Of The Pops. As I grew up I carried on enjoying music and used to love listening to the radio and practicing my singing in a karaoke machine, more recently since Maxwell was born I adore listening to the latest hits on the radio. I love listening to the radio in our home, in the car and even in the garden. Recently I was sent a Goodmans canvas radio.

For decades Goodmans has been a household name. They are known for there great quality products which are stylish, smartly designed and great value for money. From loudspeakers, radios and digital TV, it’s their business to bring innovative products within everyone’s reach.

When I received the Goodmans canvas radio I was impressed by its compact size, I thought it would sit well on my bedside table however it would also be great to take downstairs at night when I sit down to blog. The copper colour of the canvas radio was unique and I felt it matched the bedroom interior well. The radio is also available in Apple Green and Slate so there is a colour to suit everyone's tastes. 

The radio was easy to set up and I was instantly impressed that not only could the radio be powered by mains power, it could also be used with a single set of batteries. Due to this handy feature I think the Goodmans radio would be a handy tool to take away with me on holiday to keep up to date with the local news, music hits and weather. I also thought that it would be perfect in the summer to take out in the garden as it would enable me to listen to the football. The radio last's up to 9 hours when powered by batteries.

The canvas radio does not need any programming and can be used straight away. The radio can pick up either Dab Digital or FM Radio stations and as soon as it picks up a station you are able to listen clearly thanks to the great audio sound which the canvas radio features. If you do not want to listen to the radio aloud then there is a headphone socket which enables you to listen to the radio quietly. 

When the radio is in use you are able to see what station you are tuned into thanks to a small LCD screen. The small screen has a back light which can be turned on which means in the dark you are able to read the LCD screen clearly.

The Goodmans Canvas Radio is priced at just £29.99 which I think is a great price for such a good quality item. Just in time for Christmas Mummy To The Max has the opportunity to offer one lucky reader the chance to win one.
