Fingerless gloves for writing! These soft cashmere knit gloves are perfect for handwriting, typing, touch screens, and crafting. Warm cold hands with this stylish accessory available in a wide range of colors from heather purple to blush pink.

Made of a breathable knit of about 35% cashmere wool. Cotton, polyester, and microfiber are blended in for durability.

The guys over at www.literarybookgifts.com contacted me and asked if I would like to review one of their products, and I accepted.

The product was the Writing Gloves, that were being sent to me for free in return for an honest review.

To be honest I have never really worn writers gloves, so this would be an interesting product to try.

Quality :

I was very surprised by the quality of the product, it was good material and felt like it could be washed several times without loosing any of the colour or affecting the material.

Size :

Well I guess one size fits all with this as I got a few family members to try them on and they fitted….well like a glove (sorry)

Ease of Use :

I decided to try and use my laptop with these on for around 30 minutes, to see if it felt comfortable, warm and if they didn’t feel strange when wearing.

As expected yeah they felt fine on, didn’t disrupt my normal movements and my hands felt warm.

Overall :

As always with all my reviews, if its an invite, free meal, free product all my reviews are 100% honest and my own opinion.

These are really good gloves, and if you type a lot outside or in the cold then these will be good for you as you can still easily press the keys and your hands will be kept warm.

For me, well I mostly type indoors so gloves for me wouldn’t really work. If I was the type of person who typed outside, then these would be good.

To be honest it all comes down to your needs for these, but as I stated these are good quality and very comfortable on.

A big thanks to www.literarybookgifts.com for the gloves 🙂

Club Sock : The First Sock Review

I recently saw on Twitter another Glasgow Blogger reviewing Club Sock, the idea sounded cool so I thought lets give them a try and see what its like. As you may have read I tried Cheese Postie in December so I wanted to try another subscription service.

There were two I had in mind, one was Club Sock and the other was for guys boxers…I selected Club Sock.

If you know subscription services like Netflix etc then this is just the same but with socks. You pay a monthly fee for how ever long you like, and each month premium socks are carefully selected and sent to you via the post.

Club Socks subscription is split in to two :

  • £7.99 a month
  • £23 for a one off pay

I went for a one off payment of £23 for a 3 month subscription, as I thought lets see what style and quality they were offering.

Basically when you subscribe you don’t know what colour, brand or design you get till they arrive, so it’s a fun time when they arrive and you open your package for the first time.

As you can see from the above photo, this is how they arrive via the post. This is good, as there is not a lot of wastage since its just socks.

Now was the reveal of what the socks looked like.

First Impressions :

First impression was “pink

Pink is not normally or really ever a colour I would choose, I am more a Black, or Blue person so this was a little disappointing.

The quality of the socks are really good, and the fit is very nice and comfy but its just the colour for me.

Yes, I did try them on, but due to the colour I wouldn’t wear this one so I am now hoping the next one is a better colour….well one that is more to my taste.

Overall :

Overall the idea is very nice, and the quality of the socks are really good. For me this first one was a little disappointing due to the colour, maybe someone out there doesn’t mind but for me it’s not a colour I would normally wear.

Looking forward to my next one now.
