Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler QuickDry Gloves

Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler QuickDry Gloves are a innovative but simple idea that making towel drying your hair a dream, getting rid of all the moisture but without the effects of rubbing a towel on it, hence leaving it frizz free.

The gloves are a large in size but fit over your fingers easily, in fact they do look like big pink monster hands which my children thought was hilarious but if they do a good job then they would be worth looking like a monster for a few minutes after the shower.

To use I simply gave my hair a quick squeeze when I’d finished washing it and then put the gloves on to remove more moisture from my hair.  I just squeezed through the lengths and pressed over the scalp and the gloves soon absorbed the majority of the moisture.  This allowed me to go and get dressed without wet hair dripping all over me or a towel wrapped around my head.  Personally I’m really pleased with these and prefer them to my regular microfibre hair wrap which although keeps the wet hair out of the way, doesn’t absorb much of the water.

My 9yr old daughter has even taken a liking to these, with her very thick, wavy hair, the gloves are a simple way for her to get the wetness out of her hair before I plait it for her.  They are easy to use and really soak up moisture so a great tool for her to use to dry her hair as being so thick she doesn’t use a hairdryer and leaves it to finish dry naturally.

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the product in order to write an honest review.

Birds Eye Afterschool Challenge

Cooking for the children after school when they are tired and hungry and I’ve been at work all day, often needs to be something that’s quick and easy.  They don’t want to wait around and I don’t have much time to prepare so Birds Eye is perfect.  You can also keep your freezer stocked with a selection of Birds Eye products ready for that day that you need a helping hand and simply pop in the oven to cook within no more than 20 minutes!

birdseye 2We bought a selection of Birds Eye products to fill the freezer and then use them whenever we needed a quick meal.  I love the frozen vegetable mixes that incorporate four different vegetables in each variety, Select Mixed Veg and Country Mixed Veg.  They also come in really convenient zip lock bags to stop those runaway vegetables in your freezer compartments!

The children enjoy the Crispy Chicken Breasts along with chicken nuggets and fish fingers, not forgetting their favourite potato accompaniment Potato Waffles!
