Brands

As part of the RFW Loves section of the blog here I share all my favourite brands. Brands that have an ethos similar to mine. Only affordable, innovative brands who hit the mark appear here though. All thoughts and opinions are my own even if items have been gifted to me.

 

I hope you enjoy getting to know the brands as much as I have. I’m always on the look out for something a little different so if you’re a company or you know of a company that would fit please do reach out and contact me. I’d love to create a little black book of ethical companies who align themselves with the slow movement.

Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1/EU American Fridge Freezer review

Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1EU American Fridge Freezer review

This post is sponsored by Samsung Home Appliances. Well I’ve been using my Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1/EU American Fridge Freezer for a couple of months now and thought it about time that I did a review. It’s so hard isn’t it, deciding on which product or brand to go for with big ticket items. Especially when you are purchasing online and can’t see or touch it. My old fridge freezer if you didn’t know was also American style but after many years of sterling service it was giving up the ghost. Slowly but surely feature after feature broke until it froze everything in the crisper drawers and sprung a leak. So you can only imagine how thankful I am that Samsung Home Appliances kindly gifted this one to me (I even gave the kitchen a mini makeover to celebrate) . Talk about life savers!

A Kitchen Update with Samsung

Post contains gifted item from Samsung

At 15 years old my old American style fridge freezer was on it’s last legs. The fresh water dispenser and ice making machine had long since packed up, the lights no longer worked, all the door shelves had broken and the fridge seemed to freeze everything whilst the freezer didn’t quite manage to freeze anything. Add in to the mix that every so often I would wake up to a flooded kitchen  (how does that even happen with the water supply is turned off) and well, it had come to the end of it’s lifespan. You can imagine then just how extremely grateful, stupidly excited and over the moon I was when Samsung asked me if I would like to try one of their American fridge freezers and talk a little about how it helps in our day to day life. So come and  join me on a kitchen update with Samsung. Continue Reading…

Trying Out The HP 14-dk0008na 14″ Laptop with AO

HP Laptop Review with AO

*POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS* Did you know that support for Windows 7 ends on the 14th of January 2020? I had no idea until a notification popped up on my laptop! Queue panic mode. Without a laptop I will be lost. My blog is my little space in the world where I get to be me. When I write I get to switch off and immerse myself in the enjoyment of wittering on. You can only imagine the rush of fear that this may be taken away from me. Add in that my old laptop is at least 10 years old! Half the buttons aren’t working anymore and one of the hinges is broken. Along with it getting so hot after half an hour that you can spot weld with it. It is time for a new one. So I’ve been trying out the HP 14-dk0008na 14″ Laptop with AO.COM Continue Reading…
