Naipo Massagers Review and Giveaway

Two great products and a fab freebie in my Naipo Massagers Review and Giveaway

After a long day in our house there are many times when we are aching and seeing who can get in their requests to the other one to rub shoulders, feet or backs. Even the boys with their hectic sports and playing have times when they pull muscles and are feeling the effects of not stopping.

My big treat once in a while is to go for a massage, it’s not cheap and only booked occasionally but I love it, there is nothing better than having that time that the phone is off, music is on and someone else is looking after me.

Of course that isn’t the normal day to day routine so I have got two products to show you that can help out! I was asked to have a look and see what I thought of these two handy massagers and I love being able to tell you what I think.

Naipo Cordless Handheld Massager

Naipo Massagers Review and Giveaway

This Naipo cordless massager is rechargable and has 5 speed levels so that you can choose what is right for you. Sometimes the top speed can be a little intense if you want a light massage so it is great that you have the choice of what you need.

Naipo Massagers Review and GiveawayI found that it charges quickly and being cordless it isn’t clumsy in taking anywhere around the house and you don’t have those trailing cords which I find so annoying. For those people that go away on activity holidays it’s ideal. This year we did exactly that with all the children. It was amazing but exhausting and I wish that I had this then because it would of been ideal! There are interchangable heads which can be used depending on the level and type of massage you require at the time.

This normally retails here at £34.99 I have for you lucky readers a promotion code for a whopping 20% off. Just use at checkout by popping in the code: NQEZ4UA3 and you will have 20% deducted from your purchase.

Naipo Neck Pillow Massager

Naipo Massagers Review and Giveaway

The Naipo Neck Pillow Massager is a small, easy to transport heat massager that can be used at any time of the day. You can easily take this to work and use without it having any impact. I sit a desk for some of my work day and I’m sure that my posture isn’t the best and it adds to all sorts of tweeks and shoulder pain. With this being so portable I can use this at work with little impact on what I am doing.

Studies into stress suggest the meaningful, positive results achieved by using massage. It’s not just the relief of tight and painful muscles across our body but also the mental relaxation we can find when we are looking after ourselves. It’s good to take the time sometimes and not just look at our ‘to do’ lists and plough on regardless.

Eat well, look after ourselves and take the steps needed to maintain being healthy are all factors I think add to reducing the negative effects of being so busy. Ordering online takes a massive weight off of my shoulders and that’s another benefit of ordering these massagers for me.

So here’s what you can expect to have when it arrives; 1 x Pillow massager 1 x Wall Adapter 1 x Car Adapter plus a user manual

Another 20% discount code is available and can be used for this neat little massager. Use code: MMB2BWIQ at the checkout which will discount off the normal RRP of £27.99.

You can visit the team at their facebook page where they have so much information on well being, it’s a great resource. Bumper Giveaways Christmas Gift Guide – Part 3Naipo Care

TowelUP

 

Bumper Giveaways Christmas Gift Guide – Part 3

TowelUp© is the brainchild of  Hannah who was fed up of her towel falling down every time she walked from the shower to the wardrobe, simple as that!  It has taken much research, time and effort to create what she hopes is a solution to that problem for men, women and children alike.

Bumper Giveaways Christmas Gift Guide – Part 3

Bumper Giveaways Christmas Gift Guide – Part 3Have you ever been caught short with your towel falling down? I never used to worry about this when I was young free and single but as I’ve grown up and either shared houses or been travelling it became a bit of a thing that I didn’t want to be worrying about. Yes, you can wrap it round you and tuck it in but there is always that risk of it falling!  TowelUp© will keep your towel securely in place for as long as you need it to and costs just £3.99 for one or £6.99 + P&P.  It simply slides over where you wrap your towel around you body and hey presto you are ready to move around! These are great for stocking fillers and they are a really different present to give.

Sweet Hearts

Bumper Giveaways Christmas Gift Guide – Part 3

 

Lice are a hazard of the children going back to school in my experience so it’s good to see products that can help out with that. Also when my son was alot smaller he had longer hair which goes beautifully and curly the longer it gets. With the 2 in 1 – Detangler & Head Lice Defence Spray you can use it for detangling and styling. If your child does then come into contact with an infested head, the strong head lice repellent will deter them from even thinking about spreading. The detangler and head lice spray has Fragonia, Neem and Tea Tree oil which puts of the bugs but doesn’t smell horrid like some can.

The SweetHearts Hair Detangler Spray has been created by Beth Belshaw alongside Denise McGowan of Evanji to make a detangler that is soft enough to be used daily, yet leave hair feeling light and shiny. It is made from ethically sourced ingredients and is free from synthetic chemicals & parabens. Sweet hearts hair design have a strict no animal testing policy so you can rest assured when you are buying them that this has been upheld.

Bumper Giveaways Christmas Gift Guide - Part 1

Kip Perdue is a paper cutting artist based in South London, England. He has one of the best websites at Kartegraphik I have seen in a long time. It takes you on an informative journey through his artists mind and evokes a wonder in his beautiful creations. Kip produces wonderful cut out maps. These maps are perfect for gifts at Christmas and I’m very pleased that they are the first of this years products to be featured. I commissioned a map of Bournemouth Gardens because when my other half and I had our first date we went on the Bournemouth balloon which was tethered there and offered flights which overlooked the town. To have that experience where we saw the town from the sky and then to have this intricate and cool artwork is another piece of our own history mapped on our wall.

The map is the best of both worlds, a quick, customisable, and above all personal gift! The map is a one square mile map, so it is centred upon a specific location and will be cut to show one mile from that centre point.

Bumper Giveaways Christmas Gift Guide - Part 1The gifts are reasonably priced and so unique that they are something that will always get people talking and commenting. People won’t be trying to remember what you bought them a few years ago, it will instantly come to mind. Furthermore it shows thought, and everyone likes to feel special.

Putting Up Our Christmas Tree in 5 Photos

We enjoy celebrating Christmas in our house. We always wait until after big M’s birthday on the 3rd December before we put any decorations up. This is so that he can enjoy his birthday without sharing it with Christmas.

I love getting the boxes down from the loft and seeing all of our little nick knacks from the previous years. It’s great to sit and go through the tree decorations the boys have made while they have been growing up.

This year I brought a new artificial tree as I have used one I borrowed from a friend for the past few years. I thought that it was about time to get us one of our own.

The boys and I agreed we would like to share the moment on the blog…


There was great relief from me and whoops of delight from the boys when we turned the lights on.

Have you put your tree up yet or do you do something a bit different?

Easy Pickled Onions

It’s coming up to Christmas and one of the things that we love in our house is pickled onions. They are just beautiful when served up with leftovers such as gammon ham and bubble and squeak on boxing day. They are also nice and easy to do and if you have a day spare a few weeks before christmas then you can get a some jars ready. You can take round as a pressie to friends when you are visiting, it’s nice to turn up with something a bit different.

I was lucky enough this year to have the help of my two boys and we had a great time sitting together peeling the onions.

Hope you enjoy the recipe and the joy of making them.

What you will need:

1kg small onions for pickling

Tablespoon of salt

800ml malt vinegar

Black peppercorns (optional)

Dried chilli flakes (optional)

Glass jars

Sieve/colander

Some little helpers (optional but lots of fun)

What you need to do is:

*top tip…. Your house and your clothes are going to smell of onions, think about what you are wearing and even consider putting on plastic gloves.

Ensure your jars are clean and sterile. I washed my thoroughly then popped in a preheated medium oven for 5 minutes then left to cool.

Now the next task is either pretty mundane or pretty therapeutic depending on how you view it. You have to peal each individual onion and gently slice off the base so that it still holds its shape but loses the tough root area.

Once they are all peeled, place in a colander and sprinkle the salt over them. Leave for 6hrs or overnight if possible. This will draw out excess water and give you crunchy pickled onions.

Rinse well in cold water and pat dry with kitchen roll.

Take your jars and pop the onions into the jars. You will need to push them about a little to get the maximum amount in and utilise the space well.

This is the time you can use some extra spices depending on your taste. I did one jar with a quarter teaspoon of dried chilli flakes to add some heat to the onions. Peppercorns are also a good addition.

When you have filled up all of your jars you can pour over the vinegar right to the top making sure they are all covered.

Put the lid on tight and you are then ready to label them.

Pop on the date, type of vinegar used and any little extra spices you’ve added to the mix.

Leave to mature for at least 4 weeks but best after 6. They should keep for up to a year unopened. Once opened store in the fridge and eat within 4 weeks. It’s home-made so times may vary slightly depending on your own preserving conditions. The main thing is…enjoy!
