Cillit Bang's All in 1 #Review & #Giveaway

 Cillit Bang's All in 1

Cillit Bang is know for being tough on stains and grease so I wanted to really put it to the test. I was given a very messy recipe from Holly Bell, the runner up in the BBC's Great British Bake-Off. BBQ Sticky Ribs. Now I love ribs but rarely make them as the mess they leave behind is just so hard to clean. It puts me right off! I can be a lazy Mummy, I tend to leave my pans and dishes to soak rather than stand there scrubbing them Cillit Bang 's  new All In 1 - Dish & Surface cleaner looks very promising. I was more than happy to give it a go. I made my BBQ Sticky Ribs, they were yummy but eek were they messy! Take a look at my pot. Just look at all that grease and mess. It's not nice at all! I was praying that my new Cillit Bang was going to make cleaning it a easier than the last time I had to do it.

This dish is quite old and wasn't exactly gleaming to start with but boy was it dirty now. I added two squirts of Cillit Bang into my washing up bowl, added hot water and rubbed. There was lots of lovely soapy bubbles and they smelt very nice. I didn't have to scrub but I did have to rub with a little elbow grease. It's a cleaner, not a miracle worker. Have a look afterwards, my dish was all clean and grease free again. That wasn't as hard as I thought *phew.

I love this new Hands Free Pump, It's great. I also love the fact that is has an On/Off switch at the back so that I can turn it off meaning the kids can't play with it. I found this new Cillit Bang All In 1 cleans my dishes a treat. It's good stuff - you have my word.

Now Hands Up who wants to win some? I have 5 Cillit Bang All In 1 Starter Kits to give away.

New Anti-Stress Q-Link Pendant

New Anti-Stress Q-Link Pendant

Being a mother can be a stressful job, juggling a career, household chores and kids can be tough. When I was told about the Q Link Pendant I wasn't quite sure what to make of them. Would they really work? How could they combat stress? I thought I might as well give them a try as I had nothing to lose. First off I'll tell you a bit about them.

Q-Link is designed to balance and strengthen the body’s energy system to give greater focus, less stress and aid restful sleep for better performance and productivity every day.

Description: Description: Description: Z:\Clients\SMG\Images and logos\Q-Link\or_acr_tn.jpg

Brand new to the UK the Q-Link range of well being products from specialist distributor SMG Europe, use proprietary “sympathetic resonance technology", or “SRT-3”, to balance and optimise a person’s natural energy or ‘biofield’, which helps them to regain control of their lives. As well as improving quality of life, the stylish range of pendants will complement any outfit and are already a huge a hit in the US with celebrities including Madonna, Simon Le Bon and Jerry Hall. 
Description: Description: Description: Z:\Clients\SMG\Images and logos\Q-Link\wh_acr_tn.jpg

With more than one million products sold throughout the world, Q-Link pendants, bracelets and attachments for mobile electronics are perfect for anyone who uses a personal electronic device. Rigorous independent tests have shown Q-Link helps users to combat stress and improves concentration and performance by naturally improving their body’s energy system and enhancing the body’s resistance to external stressors.

Available in six stylish colours, the Q-Link Acrylic SRT-3 Pendant (SRP £79.99) is a bevelled-edge triangle with a dual-tone design. The Q-Link Silver Pebble SRT-3 Pendant (SRP £274.99) is a polished hand tooled pendant crafted from solid .925 sterling silver and features a vibrant mirror grade finish. Both pendants can be worn as signature pieces, dressed up or down, helping you regain control of your life and aid restful sleep.

 I was sent a pretty Pink Q-Link pendant to try out for myself. It's nice and bright too look at on a simple black corded necklace. It looks very simple yet it's wearable. The bright colours and cool shaped design makes it quite trendy so it won't look like you're wearing something odd.
 I've been wearing my pendant over the past 6 weeks and I do feel a lot calmer. I wear it from the moment I get up ( around 8am ) until I get into bed ( around 11pm ) Once I have it on I actually forget that it's there, it's very light weight so you rarely notice it. I used to be a very stressful person, I'd get upset and worry over the silliest of things. Over these past few weeks I do feel that I'm a lot calmer in myself and maybe a little less tired too. I will continue to wear my Q-Link pendant because I feel that it is helping me and I quite like it. I cannot say to you that this pendant will 100% work for you too as I don't know if it will. The only thing I will say is that I feel it has helped me, I may not be sure of how it works but I'm happy to wear mine with pride.

What do you think??

Breakfast With Warburtons

Warburtons has launched a fantastic new range of breakfast products, including three NEW brioche flavours.

I've always been a fan of Warburtons Bread but until today I had no idea that they made other wonderful products. Today I was introduced to the Warburtons Breakfast Range and wow was I surprised. No more simple toast for me in the mornings, oh no. I'm going to be the best Mum on the planet with what we're going to be having from now on.

Let me introduce you to Warburtons Brioche Chocolate Chip Loaf.

I've never seen this in the shops before but maybe that's because I've not been looking for it but I will be from now on! This loaf is delicious, It's so fresh and soft and truly delightful. The chocolate chips are small and yummy, not over powering at all. I ate my slices with butter on which was great whilst my girls ate theirs with chocolate spread on. Either way the whole loaf went in minutes, I did have a bit of help from my friends though as I was at my local church when I offered to share. We go to an after school group called "Chill Out Club" where us Mum's get to relax with a nice cuppa and a tea cake or piece of toast whilst our kids do crafts and play happily. Today they were more than happy to become my taste team. They just couldn't get enough.

Next up on our plates was the Raisin Brioche Swirls.

These come packed in a bag of 6 and each is individually wrapped. These delicious raisin brioche swirls filled with creme patisserie look lovely. I must admit I don't like raisins so these aren't for me but I did pass them out amongst my willing taste testers who were all telling me how great these were. There was lots of Mmm's and Oooh's. All great comments and feedback, these were actually the most popular out of the 3 products I was sent to test. It's a shame that I didn't get to enjoy one myself but I did try a small bite ( of a piece with no raisins in ) which was lovely. It was real soft and held great flavours. The cream was sweet like a custard and the bread was just so fresh it melted in your mouth. Everyone was asking me where they can get these so of course I told them - "They're Mr Warburton's Of course!"

Last but not least, let me introduce Warburtons Brioche Butter Rolls.

These are packed in bags of 8 and each single wrapped.These are simple butter brioche rolls which are yummy. They're a perfect snack for breakfast or even anytime of the day and even great for lunchboxes! I'm sure the kids would love to see something a little different in their lunches. I know mine would. They can be eaten as they are or sliced with butter. You can make mini sandwiches with them or even make them into little pizza bases. I guess the options are endless.

So overall, Today has been a great day! I have learnt a lot about my favourite bread brand and got to taste some great new products.Here at Mummy Of 3 Diaries Warburtons new Breakfast range gets a huge 5/5 and a fab Thumbs Up. I hope some of you might be tempted to try these too now.

Have A Happy Easter With Aldi

Aldi's Easter Treats

This Easter why not get some great chocolate treats at a great low price. Aldi has an amazing range of Easter goodies available this year from your local stores. I was sent a small selection to have a look at and I must say. What arrived was pretty impressive.

My favourite of all the Aldi treats is the Choceur Chocolate Bunny which costs just 99p. It's so cute and very delicious. I really enjoy Aldi chocolate, I used to worry that it wouldn't taste very nice because it is so cheap but that's just so wrong. Aldi chocolate is now amongst my faves, when ever I'm near my local store I always pop in and stock up.

Similar to this you have the Dairyfine Milk Chocolate Bunny which costs just 79p and the Dairyfine Beanie Bunny at just 99p. 

The Dairyfine Chocolate Bunny is a hollow milk chocolate treat. It's packaged in foil and decorated nicely with an attractive, colourful bunny character on the front. It's delightful and delicious. It's well worth it's low price of just 79p. I'd grab yours whilst you can before they all sell out. The Dairyfine Beanie Bunny is a hollow milk chocolate bunny but this one is slightly different as it is filled with lots of tiny little smartie like chocolates inside. There's a good sized handful of pretty little coloured chocolates in crisp crunchy coatings. I really liked this bunny, it's a fantastic deal at just 99p. We've eaten ours now but I think we'll have to pop down to our local Aldi and stock up on a few more ready for Easter Sunday. These went down a treat, all three of my children loved this. It tastes great, the price is low and it looks good. What more could we ask for?

There are lots of smaller sized eggs like the Choceur Filled Mini Eggs which cost £1.89 a bag or maybe some Choceur Marzipan Mini Eggs which are £1.49.

Or how about a BIG Egg? Aldi has a Choceur Flame Egg which costs just £2.99 for a lovely 350g egg. It's a touch of luxury, Aldi’s Choceur Flame Egg is a real treat this Easter. Perfect for sharing, the high quality chocolate egg is enclosed in decadent gold foil and has a selection of delicious milk and white chocolates at the centre – a chocoholic’s heaven.

Last but not least for those who fancy a sweet treat but not chocolate Aldi have a delicious bag of yummy Dominion Easter Marshmallows for just 99p. Cute and colourful but most importantly, yummy.

Aldi really does have something for everyone this Easter and at these amazingly low prices, you'd be mad not to splash out (or not) and treat the whole family.

All of these treats are available from your local ALDI store but be quick as they can sell out.

Pig Goes Pop - Check out My review & #win 1 too!

Pig Goes Pop - He sure does.

The Pig Goes Pop game is delightfully compact and so easy to play in those frustratingly confined spaces – and everything packs away inside the pig, so you can pop him in your carrying bag and off you go.  All  the kids have to do is feed the Pig his burgers and pump up his swelling tummy WITHOUT bursting his coat open! On the roll of the colourful dice, each player feeds this friendly hog a purple, red, yellow or green hamburger, pushing his cheery head down the number of times shown on the burger.

Remember to be careful though as this Pig is a greedy fella and although he can fit more than quite a few mouthfuls into his ever-bulging tummy, it won’t be long (although no-one knows how long) before his coat can no longer take the strain… and to everyone’s amazement and rapturous squealing delight, this little Pig goes POP!   If not, you’re still in the game.  Just keep on going until he bursts at the seams. For a new game, just rewind his curly tail… and the next round commences.

It's lot of fun! My girls had a great time playing, It's aimed at children aged 4 + and you can have between 2 and 6 players. My girls are aged 4 and 9, both equally enjoyed it. There was little squeals of excitement all round. It retails at £19.99 - For stockists visit Drumondpark .

Seeing as we had so much fun here in Mummy Of 3 Diaries house we thought you might like to win your very own Pig Goes Pop game!

Our Dirt Devil DCC070 Challenge

Dirt Devil gas a team of 10 lucky Bloggers who were chosen to take part in their new product challenge. Mummy Of 3 Diaries was lucky enough to be in this ten. We were all sent a brand new  Tempest Cylinder DCC070 Vacuum cleaner.

Fist off it was very easy to put together, It literally took 5 minutes. There's no messing about, you just simply attach the pieces you require and off you go. My living room gets very messy with my three kids running round all day. They're constantly putting food crumbs and bits of paper every where. We also have a cat hair problem, especially now the summer is coming and our Garfield is loosing his winter coat ( all over my settee ).

Here's a quick shot of my floor before we hoovered:

And then a shot taken just 5 minutes later! It's spotless. This vacuum cleans really well and really fast. I'm very pleased with the result, just look for yourself.

Here's all the Information you might need to know. I've put it all into an easy to read table for you:

It sounds amazing and I must agree. It retails at £79.99 at Dirt Devil which is worth every penny!

One of my favourite features of this Vacuum is the colour and the design. I love Red, it's so funky and eye catching. This is definitely a vacuum I would choose for myself. It's just gorgeous to look at. It really does make me want to use it more which is always good. I love the fact that it's so easy to use, it really does just glide along. It has lots of great attachments so you can fit in every corner or clean every surface type. There's an easy to carry handle which makes taking it upstairs a lot easier than it used to be with my old upright hoover. Being so lightweight also helps ;)

There was one little thing that I found I would change if I could and that's the hose. I don't have a cupboard space to store my vacuum away so it's normally placed behind a door or in a far corner of our dining room. Being a Cylinder means the hose is then left standing up in the air next to it with no where to hide it away safely. It often falls down and causes me too trip over it. I'm not sure how I could over come that but for now, I'm just being more careful.

The Dirt Devil Tempest Cylinder DCC070 Vacuum cleaner is great. I've already thrown out my Vax Upright and I won't be going back!

I give it a very well deserved 4/5. It would have scored a 5 if I hadn't fell over it and bruised my knees ;)
