Delicious Delicacies Treat Box (Glasgow, East End) : Review

GIFTED


The girls at Delicious Delicacies gifted me with one of their treat boxes recently.⠀

They have recently launched (June 24th 2020) and asked me to check out their Treat Box.⠀

They do fresh home-made baking, and all profits go to @parkheadnazarene and @the.charter which is a really nice thing to do.⠀

I have now finished the box, and can honestly say wow.⠀

About

The girls do lovely fresh home-made baking, they based in the East End of Glasgow and are available for collection or delivery.

The Treat Box

Oreo Cupcakes (x2)

Visually they looked really good, and the flavour was really good. The cupcake was nice, and had a really good flavour and was my favourite from the whole box.⠀

Malteser Slab

I bit into this and mmm the base, the topping and the Maltese’s a perfect bite.⠀

Another one that was mega moreish.

Empire Biscuit & the Iced Biscuit

Both were really nice, and had a good favour to them. I would have liked just a little more jam, but I have a sweet tooth and that’s my personal preference.⠀

Tablet

Tablet can be hit or miss, either just so so or way too sugary. For me, this was really good, smooth and mega moreish. ⠀

Meringue

This was MASSIVE! but light and soft and the cream inside again a perfect bite. ⠀

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the treat box.

Hulu Soya Candles, Bath Salts (Vegan) : Review

Gifted


Hulu recently gifted me some lovely items 1x Bath Salts, 1x Soya Candle and 1x Wax melts

Let’s be honest everyone loves a good scented candle, both guys and girls we love them even if some of us don’t want to admit it. Me? I love a good scented candle, I have purchased many from big brands to smaller brands.

There are two types of candles ones that use paraffin and natural ones.

Paraffin comes from petroleum, these types of candles burn faster and normally cheaper. Its been claimed that these give off toxic fumes, I cant confirm this as I haven’t done the research but this is what I have heard people say about them and am sure you can do a quick google.

Now natural ones (beeswax, soy, palm) like this this one which is soy, it also burns slow with no smoke and no toxic fumes.

I was very excited to smell them and try them!

Hulu Soy Wax Candle

When this arrived the first thing I did was unscrew the lid and have a good smell, to see what it was like and how close to the description it was.

This was very fresh, and had a lovely scent to it.

I light it one night while watching a movie, and I really loved how the scent filled the room. It helped create a nice relaxing atmospheric aroma, and I am now looking forward to the next time its lit.

Hulu Pink Himalayan Bath Salts

Just like the candle as soon as this arrived I had to open it to smell what it was like.

OHHHHHH WOW this smelled like heaven!!!! I could have easily just had this under my nose all day!!!

Next was to treat myself to a little bath, and test these out.

I started to run my bath, and put these in and BANG!!! mmmm the smell in the bathroom was amazing! I got in and felt instant relaxation with the warm of the bath and the smell hugging me.

Hulu Wax Melts

Just like the other two products these had a really nice smell to them.

There are a few reasons why wax melts are cheaper than candles: more burn time, less waste, more fragrance oil and for these it was a peach fragrance.

I put these (not all) in my wax melt burner and left it to do its thing, and the room smelled so nice and peachy.

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the products.

My flat has been smelling nice and fresh, my baths have been smelling nice its been a very nice and relaxing time for me.

These products are very good, firstly really healthy due to being soy based and secondly they all have a really good fragrance.

I have no hesitations when I recommend these products, and the company Hulu.

Learning A Language with LearnLanguages24.com : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at LearnLanguages24.com gifted me a free lesson to try out their learn a language service, which is something at that point I was doing but with youtube videos so I said yeah as am sure this way would be much better.

What Language?

LearnLanguages24 do many many languages so am sure you will find one that you have always wanted to learn, but for me it was Romanian as I would like to be able to speak to my future in-laws better than just “hi” “thanks” and “how are you?”.

Logging In

This is the dashboard, yup there is a lot of text on here but for me all I did was just click “Start Daily Tasks” and just let the system decide what is best for me.

You can select something else, but I wanted to jump right in and see how this application thought was the best for me.

The Structure

Once I clicked the daily task link, I was presented with this screen.

As you can see I am only a little into the course, but I wanted to try it for a few weeks before I gave you my honest review….anyway getting back to this screen.

Here is where you can set how long you would like to learn for that day, for me I did 30mins in the morning then 30mins in the afternoon.

next…

Most of the lessons…so far look like the two photos above….this could change but I am still at the start of my course 🙂

With the left photo, you see the english word and then select the correct answer that you have heard in the previous parts.

The right photo, you see the english and you say out loud the correct answer in the language you are studying then click the blue eye to see the correct answer. Then you are presented with a red cross or a tick which if you didn’t get it right you click the X and it will be repeated in the coming lesson(s).

This for me was very easy to navigate, and a good way to learn.

Do look at the above photo again, it wants you to HEAR the audio again, SAY it three times and also WRITE it!! this is a great technique to help learn and remember.

Course Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the product.

For me as I said above I have tried this daily for now close to 3 weeks, I am not the fastest at learning plus this is a difficult language to learn.

I have managed to be able to know a good amount of words by seeing them, or hearing them but yet to be able to speak them…..I am sure this will come with more practice and time.

I am going to keep doing this and see how I get on, I am not setting a target that by x month I want to be fluent no thats not a good attitude, I will see how I get on and learn what I learn at my pace.

I’m using this lockdown time to try and up-skill. I’m enjoying learning Romanian with LearnLanguages24.com because it has a good layout and well thought out plus you get a lifetime access to online courses that have 7000 foreign words and phrases, which is at least twice as much as all other language course providers.

I learned that they recently achieved the milestone of 600,000 satisfied customers. To celebrate their success they are offering a temporary 60% discount, with lifetime access. AND!!!! they are currently offering an exclusive 2 for the price of 1 special offer that is only available to my blog readers.

The same 2 for the price of 1 applies if you decide to purchase the full range of courses in your chosen language. You will receive the full range of courses in another language for free. You can pass all of your courses on to your family and / or friends as rewarding gifts, at any time in the future.

Simply purchase a course / courses in your chosen language from their website: www.learnlanguages24.com Thereafter send an email to info@learnlanguages24.com mentioning my name (Kris Munro Blog) and the course / courses you would like for free. It’s that easy.

There’s never been a better time to learn a new language online, more so with whats happening in the world right now. Using this lockdown to up-skill is both highly rewarding and immensely beneficial. Plus that you can currently get a 60% discount, as well as 2 for the price of 1, makes this an excellent value-for-money deal. By broadening your horizons you create more options, more freedom and have a lot more fun. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to significantly improve your quality of life. Anytime. Anywhere.
