Who are Speedy Dot?

I am self hosted and when I decide to make that change I knew I would have a little to pay out each year in order to stay that way. In my first year I decided to host with a well known company that was recommended to me and they offered me a discount for my first year. I only paid around £50 and they did the full switch over for me from free hosting to self hosted.

1 year later my renewal came through and it was a staggering £148 to renew for another year. I knew the price would go up but I didn’t realise it would be that much. I asked if a discount could be offered but I got a very blunt response with a flat NO!. …So I took to Twitter and asked for anybody who knew if a self-hosting site that could help me that weren’t going to charge me the Earth.

Along came Speedy Dot. They replied to my tweet so quickly and offered to help. We started chatting through Direct messages on Twitter and they were so friendly and willing to help.

For those of you who don’t know, SpeedyDot are a company that offer cloud hosting. Cloud hosting uses virtual resources on several serves to accommodate different aspects of your website, however some of the information is stored on physical serves, which allows them to offer hosting at a lower price. This is still a very secure way of storing your website data.

As a new customer I got my first month free. I was the offered their basic plan of £3.99 per month after that. As my blog is small and I do not need to host multiple sites this was perfect for me. There are no hidden fees either. The plans are fully laid out on their website.

There is a charge to transfer your domain name but the charge is less than £10.00, which is a very reasonable price to pay for a transfer.

The staff I dealt with were polite an always available to help. They offered to transfer my site over to them at no extra cost. They also transferred my email address too. When it comes this kind of technical thing I am no good so it was super helpful that they offered this service.

SpeedyDot are not as well known as some of the other companies out there but I felt that they needed to be recognised more. I have been up and running with them for about a month now and so far so good. I got a message a few days after the switch was done just asking if everything was running okay, which I think was a very nice touch. Just because a company is well known doesn’t mean they offer the best service or best deals.

I will leave a link to their Twitter below in case you want to contact them yourselves and check them out:

PRODUCT REVIEW: Photowall Canvas

product review

Hey Guys and welcome back to my blog. It has been a while since I posted a product review but I am really excited about sharing this with you guys. This is a review of a product that was kindly gifted to me and a bit about my experience when dealing with the company. There is also a little discount code for all my readers, which entitles you a MASSIVE 20% off any product you choose!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a Company called Photowall and they offered me either a wall Mural or a canvas of my choice in any size in exchange for an honest review. Even though I am not a big blogger I do still get quite a few emails offering me products, offering to help me grow my socials for a fee. Some of the offers have hidden ulterior motives but quite a few are genuine. I was over the moon when I found out that this was a legitimate offer and the products they offer looked like high quality items. 

Photowall are a Swedish company that have a wide range of wall Murals and Canvas’s  available for any room. You can choose from the categories provided on the website, or create your own design. 

I spoke to a really nice woman by the name of Jennifer. She explained the process. to me, how to order, discounts I could offer my readers and what was expected of me in return. I liked the fact that she was not pushy and allowed me to take my time to look through the website and choose the product that was right for me. 

When dealing with a company, I am a lot more inclined to work with them if I feel that they are genuine and I know that they will allow me to be honest in my review, whichever way it goes. It is important that I don’t feel forced in to giving a good review.

That being said I wanted to make sure that I picked something I knew I would like and I would be happy to display in my flat. I was so excited when it arrived. I chose this beautiful Canvas of a Bob Cat kitten. 

canvas completed

I absolutely love it. I cannot wait to hang it in my Room.

To purchase this it would have cost £106 . UK delivery is free. I ordered 100cm x 100cm canvas. With this you receive the design, a wooden frame and all the bits required to put the canvas together, which I think is great value for money. I ordered it December 7th and it arrived December 14th.

I would definitely go out and buy a different print for another room in my flat. 

 

the-end

Now for the part you guys will hopefully take advantage of. The code is only valid for 30 days so move fast! If you want to get your own canvas or wall Mural, use the code below for 20% off on Photowall’s website.

CreativeMisfitUKCampaign2017 

This is not an affiliate code. Photowall kindly offered my readers 20% off.

That is all from me for now, until next time, Be Kind Be Happy and Stay True to You.

REVIEW DIRECTORY: Globenfeld Watches!

Right guys this has been a long time coming!. I have reviewed all of these watches on Amazon but I have been meaning to write a blog post for ages because I just want to show you all what an amazing find these are. 

Unfortunately I cannot find Photos of all the watches I can only find three but I will link all of them as I go.

First off , if you guys don’t know what Review Directory is it a website that you sign up to in order to receive products to review. They send regular emails with current campaigns and you can respond and complete the forms if you are interested in specific products.

Please bare in mind though that you should only sign up if you plan on reviewing the products and providing full and honest reviews. The girls I have spoken to are really lovely, they do work closely with a few brands and will only have a limited amount of products to send so only apply if you are serious not just because you want free stuff!

All the watches I have received have gone to my dad bar one which went to a friend. 

The first watch I received was the:

Globenfeld Jetmaster Men’s Sports Watch

This is such amazing quality and for £49.99 I was so shocked at how good it was.

IMG-20170708-WA0003

This is my favourite out of the lot. So classy and will work well with a smarter look.

I have received a wide variety of other products from the review directory, which I will be writing separate reviews for as they are female beauty products, however I would just like to say a massive THANK YOU! for sending these to me.

I love them all and if they were not too big for my wrists or they did female versions I would go and purchase myself one.

The quality is top notch. They are quite weighty and all the watches have a globe printed on the back of them, which, to me just shows that the brand really do pay attention to all the little details and really to want to show off their brand. It really does go to show that you can find high quality without paying the high price.

If you want to find out more about the Globenfeld brand they do have a website just click here. They do also have a wide range available to purchase on Amazon.

TEN out of TEN. DO recommend.. As promised I have provided links to all these products where you will also find my full individual product reviews 🙂 ENJOY!

the-end

As I said before please only sign up if you are genuinely interested in reviewing the products and will actually provide the reviews. It is amazing that brands actually do things like this. It is not something they have to do so don’t take it for granted 🙂 

As always please leave a comment with any questions or suggestions of products I should check out and until my next post Be Kind, Be Happy and Stay True to You.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Moringa Oil

** Disclaimer: this product was provided in exchange for an honest review**

I am a member of bloggers required. This is a site where brands and companies reach out to bloggers to help test and promote their products and provide honest reviews.

I saw that they were wanting bloggers to test and review Moringa Oil so I offered to review it.

Moringa oil is extracted from the seeds of Moringa oleifera, also known as the Drumstick tree. The tree is native to the Himalayan foothills.

Properties

(taken from http://oilhealthbenefits.com/moringa-oil-ben-oil/)

Moringa oil exerts many therapeutic properties because of its unique nutrition.

  • Antioxidant – Ben oil has strong antioxidant capacity. 
  • Anti-inflammatory – The oil reduces inflammation both topically and internally.
  • Anti-aging – The oil provides nutrition to our skin and relieves aging signs.
  • Anti-microbial – It is traditionally used in Sudan to purify water and is shown to reduce bacterial counts. 
  • Disinfectant – can be used to treat wounds.
  • Carrier – It is excellent carrier oil for aromatic compounds.
  • Hepatoprotective – Moringa oil protects the liver from damage. 
  • Emollient – Moringa oil is a great moisturizer for the skin.
  • Preservative – This oil resists rancidity and also used as preservative in certain products.
  • Exfoliant – drives away dead skin cells.
  • Enfleurage – Moringa oil absorbs the aroma of essential oils and other fragrat compounds like herbs, nuts, seeds, spices and chemicals. This makes it the perfect perfume base.

 

There are a number of health benefits of using Moringa oil which can be viewed by clicking on the website link above, however I will only be reviewing it based on the things I have used it for.

1) Skin – I get a lot of dry skin on my knees and my elbows and this is a great moisturiser and I can honestly say that I have not used a better moisturiser. It leaves my skin feeling soft and mosturised but never greasy.

You only need to a small amount of the product and when I say small I mean small and rub it in thoroughly. One pump will do both elbows and knees. 

2)Hair – I have always had dry hair and it has been damaged over time from all the hair dye and bleach I have used over the years. I have tried different products for my hair but none of them seem to work that well especially on my ends. They get really dry and split. I have now been using Moringa oil for a few weeks and I can see a vast improvement in the condition of my hair.

It is shiny without being greasy and I love the way it makes my hair feel. My hair is the healthiest it has ever been. 

I would recommend this product and if you would like to purchase it your yourself you can use my 10% code until the end of March 

Code: MOR10 will get you 10% off.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Feeling Zesty!!

Zesty Cup

** Disclaimer this product was sent to me in exchange for an honest review **

dsc_0624.jpg

I love it when I get companies approaching me and offer me products. This was a new one for me though. Normally I get sent books or beauty products but when Zesty cup contacted me on twitter and offered to send me a box of herbal tea I was 100% up for trying these out.

I drink herbal and green tea a lot but I mostly get boxes of teabags and have never tried loose Tea.

 

img_20170120_224414_057.jpg

First impressions 

 

 

dsc_0627.jpg

The tea comes in these cute little packets. I received “Spice of life”, “Minty Happiness”, and “Light Hearted”. The package also contained cards that with health points, tips, brewing instructions, and ingredients. 

wp-1488925388050.jpg

My personal favourite is “Light Hearted”. It is so fruity and sweet and perfect on an evening when you just want to sit back and relax. Like I said I had never tried loose tea before but the taste is so much better than teabags. You get a hit of freshness that you don’t get from using teabags and it’s refreshing but it warms your coccles at the same time!.

If you are a green, fruit or herbal tea drinker and fancy a change from the same old same old I would recommend the Zesty cup Subscription box. Fresh, Organic, healthy AND tasty!! Come on no how can you not want to get involved.

At only £8 a box you cannot go wrong. Just  to www.zestycup.com and grap yours today 😀 

Zesty Cup is definitely Creative approved 😀

Barry Marvelous Nail Fanatic..When does it become an obsession… :)

I am not a really girly girl but I  do love doing my nails. For years I used cheap market stall nail varnish. I then tried some of the more expensive products but I could never find nail varnish that would last and wouldn’t crack or peel off.

Until I found Barry M tucked away on the end of an isle in Boots. The price was just right, there was a wide range of colours available and they had different types from Gelly to Matt to Glitter. I honestly cannot fault the products at all.

I tried the Sally Hansen base coat that I was charged about £8 for but it peeled off after a day or two but if I use the Base coat, top coat and Nail hardener from Barry M I know that I will get a good week if not more without any cracking.

I have listed a few of my favourites below

Matt Collection

Crush 337

Gelly Collection

Blueberry 531

wp-1474911962968.jpg

Plum 321

wp-1474911979850.jpg

If you are looking for quality nail polish at affordable prices i would definitely recommend Barry M. The basic collections sell at around £2.99 per unit and the most i have ever paid was £4.99 for one of the Sunset Daylight Curing Gel Polishes.

Boots do a 3 for 2 offer on most if not all the Barry M Cosmetics, which I love. And Currently on the official Barry M Website they are offering free delivery on orders over £15.. how can you say no ????

I have recently started purchasing other cosmetics such as their eyeshadow palettes and Lipstick. Again i cannot fault the quality of any of them….

The only down side is that they do not have a wide range of colours in the face section like other cosmetic brands but this does not put me off. For me it is more about the quality of the product.

Go to https://www.barrym.com/ to check out the range of products available.

I don’t have many vices but Barry M certainly is one of them.

Barry M gets a huge thumbs up and a 5 out of 5 from me
