About Me

My name is Sammi, I am a 21-year-old female from Warwick (England), but I currently live in the jolly ol' North East of England with my Fiancé, Michael.

I have a BSc in Computing and IT and I am also interested in anything tech, cool and unique gadgets, and anything that will strongly improve my day-to-day lifestyle (sometimes, without me even realising it till I have it).

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and an HP Pavilion Laptop. I'm totally Windows and Android addicted, I will never have anything Apple (sorry).

Obviously, I am able to review things on behalf of my partner (male, also 21), so anything that is specifically for males will also be accepted (but I'm very tom-boy so honestly I'll probably steal good stuff off of him). I also have a cat, although I don't see him much anymore as I've moved away, I can still review cat related things too, and I'm sure he'll be much appreciated!

I currently am suffering from mental health issues/other physical health issues, so I spend 90% of my time indoors so I have a lot of time on my hands and always keep up with all my reviews and commitments!

I ALWAYS add detailed and GOOD quality images (not blurry, and only relevant photos) to ALL my reviews, in fact, normally I reach the maximum 20 photos with each review, depending on the item.

I don't reject reviews just because they aren't the cheapest or biggest discount, I am always interested in trying & reviewing new things, for both your benefit and mine. I also don't just accept any old product, if I know I won't be able to give it my full attention or a proper review (due to not having the correct equipment or not the right size/style for me etc), then I won't accept!

I'm a very honest person, I don't just throw 5 stars around for nothing! If you don't deserve 5 stars I won't give it to you! That shouldn't put you off as you should want to hear from the public and get feedback.

As you can see I talk WAY too much, but at least you know how I feel ;)

Below average quality overall. Size large is 26-inch waist, and XL is 28-inch waist. VERY inaccurate sizing even for Chinese sizing.  more »

I've heard about these and I hate myself for taking too long to catch onto things!!

I am so happy with this waist trimmer.  I've had one in the past (well, my partner did and I tried it out for a while), but I didn't get on with it. I've got back into the gym... more »

What more can I say, 100% pure argan oil in a droplet glass bottle!

02 Jun, 2018
I've always used argan oil and coconut oil etc on my skin and hair, my shampoo is argon oil and it smells gorgeous, so I really wanted to try a droplet bottle to use in my skin routine as it's... more »

Only giving 2 stars as I can get a small amount of use out of them, overall, DO NOT buy!

02 Jun, 2018
These boxers are overall OK and my partner is just going to keep them as it's too much effort to return due to being worn etc, but these are by no means worth the price.    Firstly... more »

Brilliant quality and they look gorgeous around my mirror! Very happy.

I am in love with these lights.  The only downside is they arrive in Christmas packaging, but in my opinion, this is an all year round design, I guess the manufacturer couldn't be bothered... more »

Such a cute set and really cheap!

This is probably the cutest headband I've ever seen.  I really needed one of these for when I do my face masks, and as my hair is down to the bottom of my back and I hate tying it up, espe... more »

Perfect size, stays flat and a brilliant grip.

02 Jun, 2018
There's always the worry that these mouse/keyboard mats won't stay flat as they arrive rolled up in a box and you have no idea how long it's been rolled up for. BUT after a few hours (afte... more »

Gorgeous gift and brilliant quality.

I love this brand! They always provide brilliant quality gifts or even just a treat for yourself.  The quality is outstanding for such a cheap price, the grinder does the job perfectly (I'... more »

Such a lovely gift or a present for yourself! The stand is a lovely touch.

This whine pourer doesn't only work amazingly, but it looks gorgeous too! It's such a simple thing and so easy to use and also looks lovely sat on a kitchen worktop in its own little stand.... more »

Brilliant quality, well worth the price! Great that the bulbs are included!

01 Jun, 2018
Firstly, this light was well packaged in a nice box with clear instructions.  Although I did have a bit of a fight with it while assembling, that's my fault due to low patience, and it is... more »

Brilliant for the price, packaging could do with some work to really make this the perfect gift.

I bought both of the types in this listing so I will half and half my review so I can review both types.  Dragon Mountain (smaller one): Firstly, I'm really not happy that all this came... more »

Feels cheaper than it cost, but still does the job well.

Overall this digital thermometer works brilliantly.  The only downside is it feels incredibly cheap and is VERY lightweight. They may be a good thing for some but I would have liked to have fe... more »

5 stars for the inflatables, 3 stars for the free pump!

30 May, 2018
These inflatable cup holders are so cute and actually very good quality.  I wasn't expecting much for the price, especially when each piece sells for around £1 on eBay from China, bu... more »

Brilliant pens, they do the job well

30 May, 2018
These pens aren't the best quality I've ever had (they just feel a bit cheap) but they are well worth the price and do the job well, so nothing more you can ask for! I like fine liner pen... more »

Works as it should and good quality.

I won't go into much detail as I'm sure nobody buys this product with excitement, but the whole device is very good quality, it works as it should do and gives you the outcome that you need.&n... more »

Beautiful mirror! Practical AND gorgeous!

This is probably the nicest looking mirror I've ever had.    It doesn't only look lovely, but it feels like it's very well-made which is great! The stand is genius and will w... more »

I am so surprised at how good these cables are! I'm sure you're like everyone else and go through cables like crazy, either due to losing them or breaking them, so I can say I've been t... more »

Baffled by how rubbish these are. Probably only useful thing is the telling the time.

23 May, 2018
Where do I start with this thing?  Firstly, it is NOT  a "smart watch" as it claims to be, it is simply a pedometer, which it also claims to be, which is a start I suppose.&nb... more »

Brilliant little power bank for the price. Works well and good quality. Definitely handy to have.

23 May, 2018
I have mixed feelings about this power bank.  It does work and gives me enough power to charge my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge around 1 1/2 times, and usually, I use this when my phone isn't com... more »

NOT worth the price.

23 May, 2018
This review took me a while to write because I was so baffled at how bad this item is.  Firstly, it claims to be "Safe and Non-toxic" but there's no proof of this anywhere. There... more »

Brilliant quality, no wonder Amazon say it's the best!

This is a well-made corkscrew/waiters friend, very good quality and does the job well. I feel like the price is overall a medium priced corkscrew, as there are some very very cheap ones and also &q... more »

Brilliant Hand Saw! You CANNOT go wrong with the price!

As you can see from the images I've uploaded to this review, I received a customer return item, even after cleaning it you can still see scratches and marks all over it. I should have taken a phot... more »

They feel good quality but they just do not work. A new valve design would fix this.

At first, I was going to give this item 4 stars as these vacuum bags do feel like really good quality (up to the same standard as my expensive vacuum bags), but that star rating started to fall after... more »

It works brilliantly - good for sensitive skin and for a main skin-care routine product.

I'm not really into skincare so I've never really experimented with multiple products before. The only things I use is exfoliating face wipes and Simple products (like their night cream, spot... more »

Gorgeous scales, photo's don't do it justice, very high accuracy, everything you're looking for & more.

10 May, 2018
The actual listing's photos for this item don't give these scales enough justice, even mine don't, but trust me these scales look beautiful! It's kind of black but then a mirror/very s... more »
