Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1EU American Fridge Freezer review

Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1/EU 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 ...

RFW Loves Schneider Electric Switches and Sockets

RFW Loves Schneider Electric Switches and Sockets

This post is sponsored by Schneider Electric. We often forget Interior fittings like light switches and plug sockets until right at the end of a project. But these last minute purchases are often the finishing touches to a room. And should therefore be thought about from day dot of a design. Granted, choice has up until now been kind of limited. But long gone are the days where white plastic is acceptable. Today we want not only function but form too. For a happy home everywhere we look we should see our own vision of beauty. This is where Schneider ...

A Kitchen Update with Samsung

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 ...

HP Laptop Review with AO

Trying Out The HP 14-dk0008na 14″ Laptop 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 ...

How Easy Is It To Install DIY Shutters

How Easy Is It To Install DIY Shutters

Who knew DIY shutters were a thing? I've always wanted shutters for youngest RFW's bedroom but always thought them to be way out of my budget. They would enable him to control the amount of light coming into his room and thus balance his sensory needs in an instant. Being autistic sometimes he will crave bright light and sometimes darkness. Shutters are most definitely the answer as well as the perfect finishing touch to his sensory bedroom. You can imagine then just how happy I am that The Shutter Store kindly agreed to work with me to finish this project ...

RFW Loves Dartington Crystal

I love a company with a heritage. A company that has grown over time. One that builds a community around it and has an ethical approach. I also love to support local businesses big and small. Devon is not as most of you would think, a hive of industry. We need brands to invest in the area and that's why RFW loves Dartington Crystal. For all those things and more. Let me explain ...

RFW Loves Painthouse

Now I'm sure you are all aware (maybe some not) that I am trying to become more eco friendly in the RFW house. So far I've made my own organic soap and bath salts. I've changed to eco friendly washing detergent and conditioner (I've found a cheap brand that's bloody brilliant). And there's a range of cleaning products too. The reason for the change is two fold. Firstly I want to leave the planet in better shape than I found it. And secondly there is a link to toxins and autism. Not only that but the fragrances are gentler too ...

RFW Loves Beddable

The one room in the house I encourage you to decorate from a sensory perspective if you've never tried it before is the bedroom. Think about it.... This room is the most nurturing in your home. Amongst other things this is the room where we sleep. And to get the best nights sleep you should feel calm and relaxed. We all know the do's and don'ts of no TV etc. But how about thinking about your surroundings too. A bedroom should help you to relax in the evening and be stimulating enough to make you feel as fresh as a ...

RFW Loves Beija Flor

RFW Loves Beija Flor

You know when you find a company and you just want everyone to know about them too? That's how I feel when it comes to Beija Flor. Whilst designing my hall, stairs and landing I knew I wanted something amazing for the floor in the hallway. Not only did it need to be beautiful but functional too. I've previously had a sheepskin down there and well, to be honest it just ended up very dirty and matted. In this high footfall area whatever I chose was going to have to be hard wearing. No more form over function. I needed ...
