Product Link: www.literarybookgifts.com/products/writing-gloves

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 🙂

Ranjit’s Kitchen (West End, Glasgow): Review

607 Pollokshaws Road
Glasgow G41 2AD

V: 23rd December 2018.    T:  0141 423 8222.    W: www.ranjitskitchen.com


This is an area I have not really explored yet, so I decided to take a look at some restaurant names and find something I would like to try.

Ranjit’s Kitchen was the first to jump out at me, so I had a quick look at the menu the night before to give me a head start on arrival.

Looking Around

On entry Ranjit’s Kitchen, it was very bright, warm and had a nice cosy feel.

We were welcomed and shown to a table, inside doesn’t have many seats and you can’t book in advance so you may need to wait for a table.

The Food…

Looking around everyone was enjoying the food, and it smelled very good….so I couldn’t wait for my dinner to arrive.

Starter

Daal of the Day £3.95
Panjabi lentils or Panjabi curry in a large bowl, served with 2 rotis

img_5897

I am not a soup person of any kind really, but it was cold today and I thought why not let’s try it and see what it’s like.

So as you can see from the photo above, that was today’s Daal.

For me this was just ok, I knew to start/ordering this I might not like it but I thought I would give it a try….as I said it was ok for me.

Would I order this again? not really but that’s a personal preference.

Main Course

Ranjit’s special pakora £3.95
Made with a mix of cauliflower, spinach, onions, potatoes and spices in gramflour batter served with chutney

img_5898

This is one of my favourites anytime I get an Indian, so I was looking forward to this dish.

This was really nice and mega fresh!

The flavours were really nice and light, and the batter was perfect so thin but had a nice crisp to it.

Tonight I could have easily had another batch of this!!

Mango Lassi £1.95
a cooling yoghurt based drink

img_5896

This is my MUST HAVE Indian drink, every time I go to an Indian restaurant I always have to order this.

For me this was just so so, it wasn’t sweet like I have had it in many other places but it was nice.

Sweets

Now, this is the part I always like as I have a sweet tooth, so now it was time to try some Indian sweets.

Ladoo £2
a handmade ball-shaped traditional sweet made with gramflour and sugary syrup.

img_5902

I have never had these so I didn’t know what to expect…

These were very nice!! I liked the texture, the flavour and everything about them!

Can’t wait to have these again!

Barfi £2
a smooth fudge like sweet, made with milk, sugar and cream

img_5901

This was recommended by a member of staff tonight, so I ordered them to see if it was a good recommendation or not.

Again mmmm so good I don’t know what I liked better Ladoo or this.

Snowflake Gulab Jamun £2.50
dough balls fried and soaked in sweet syrup and then rolled in delicate coconut flakes.

img_5900

I am a big fan of Gulub Jamen and don’t have it as much as I would like so I had to order it tonight along with the rest of the sweets.

So this was an interesting take on Gulub Jamen with the coconut flakes….presentation looked nice and the taste was ok.

Personally, I prefer the original way where they are warm and soaked in syrup….but that’s just me and my sweet tooth talking.

Overall

Tonight I had a really nice time, I enjoyed the food and more so the sweets!!!

I can’t wait to go back to try more dishes and have the sweets again.

See you soon guys.

The description sounded mega good, so I had to order this!

On arrival, this is a big boy, so it was time to take a bite!…..well let’s just say my mouth wasn’t big enough so I had to resort to a knife and fork.

This was very good, full of flavours with every mouthful and just so good!
