I Bought My Very Own Shredder

I was interested in buying a paper shredder. You are probably wondering at this moment in time on why I wanted to buy a paper shredder and what is the point of a paper shredder and all sorts. This is fine I would expect that but allow me to explain why I wanted to buy one.


I wanted to buy a paper shredder because I wanted to get rid of all my old paper work I have laying in my room. I know I can just throw it out but so much of the paperwork has important details on it that I want to destroy so no one else can possibly make us of them. This is just for peace of mind really. There are a few other reasons why I wanted a paper shredder so I can throw them out easier because they will take up less space, it is easier to recycle and it is simply fun shredding stuff. I had a look online for paper shredders and I found shreddygogo.com. They have a very user friendly site with loads of paper shredders!

She Likes Her Bling

I was on a search for diamond wedding rings yesterday because of one reason and one reason only. If you haven’t quite worked out what the reason is yet then I am slightly surprised, but if you haven’t that is completely fine. I was searching for diamond wedding rings because I am getting married in a few weeks to the love of my life! We have been together for 8 long, hard buy fun years and we have finally decided we want to marry each other.

We have already moved out together and settled in with a 2 year old child and now we think we are ready to spend to the rest of our lives together. I was searching for diamond wedding rings because I know my partner likes to wear diamonds, she always says how much she loves her bling! So I know I have to get her a diamond  ring. I went to visit a few diamond jewellery specialists and I did find a ring I really like but I need to get it ordered.

My Review: Hamlington’s Fine Jewellery

What I will be writing about in todays post is a brief review of my personal experience with Hamlingtons Fine Jewellery and the service they provide. First of all, I will explain a but about Hamlington’s and what the provide. Hamlington’s Fine Jewellery, are jewellers who offer fine hand crafted bespoke jewellery to their clients. They have been around for 4 generations and are still going strong using their old techniques. Hamlington’s like to tailor their jewellery to match your style and they also create each piece of jewellery themselves.


I recently went to visit Hamlignton’s for a ring that I wanted to get made to suit my style. They offered me a friendly service who worked with my style and ideas I had in mind. They work very efficiently too. Once I had my ring crafted, I immediately noticed the detail that was included into the ring and the design of the ring itself. The ring was so unique and that is what made me love it.

Overall, I think Hamlington’s are one of the best of their kind of jewellers and I would recommend you to visit them for personalised bespoke jewellery.

The Stairlift Repair Guy

I was after someone who specialises in stair lift repairs the other day because I have a stairlift in my home that is faulty. The stairlift isn’t used by me but it is used by my grandmother who lives in the house with me. She has been living here with me for just over 9 years now and I had a stairlift fitted in my home to help her to get up the stairs easily because he has a lot of troubles walking up the stairs and walking in general. I have had the stairlift in my house for almost a year and a half and there hasn’t been any problems until now.



She has been making great use of it and it is really convenient for her to use. Recently though the stairlift had troubles getting to the top of the stairs, it would stop and start a lot and this was worrying because I didn’t want my grandmother to be left stranded on the stairlift if it was to completely stop. The repairs guy I called over did manage to fix it fortunately, he said it was to do with a wire that had burnt out and it needed replacing.

Fine Jewellery

I have been to many jewellers and a lot of them don’t exactly specialise in fine jewellery. The difference between fine jewellery and normal jewellery is that fine jewellery is unique, stylish and elegant, whereas normal jewellery can be elegant but is most likely going to be common and come in basic styles that we have already seen before. The reason why fine jewellery is important to me is because I am a real fan of jewellery, some may call me a collector.

My favourite place to purchase my jewellery from is Hamlingtons. They have a great collection of only the finest jewellery. what I love the most is the unique and complicated designs each piece of fine jewellery has and its the designs and quality I am most interested in. The reason why is as a collector design and quality is the only thing I look for if it catches my eye its a keeper, the jewellery that I collect range from antiques to modern day jewellery and I only settle for the finest.

The Time Has Come

Finally, after 4 years of being together we have finally decided to tie the knot! It all started in college when I was 18, when I first saw her my heart sank I knew she was the one and I had to do whatever it took to grab her heart. After a year of trying and not being able to get out of the friend zone, she finally decided she wanted me to be her boyfriend. I was so happy so pleased that we were finally dating. We were in a relationship for a very long time which surprised me just because of the fact that she chose me! Here we are still together making one of the biggest choices of our lives together.

Are Your Ducts Really Clean?

Your ducts might look clean but are they really as clean as they look? Keeping your ducts clean are essential for our health. The ducts provide us our source of air we meed to breathe to be able to live, so have clean high quality air is a must. If not properly cleaned or not being cleaned at all has huge effects on our health because bacteria can grow on the mould inside your ducts and is then spread through the air through the ventilation system. This is increasingly worse for kitchen ducts because the kitchen is where food is prepared and the bacteria cant hen spread through our food and on to others.


Now that that has been said it is vital you clear your ducts. You should always call a professional duct cleaning agency who are qualified to make sure there isn’t any residue or chemicals left behind and assure you that the job they have done is at their best standard. Through this you can be happy to know you are bacteria and dirt free.

Incredible Gold Hoop Earings

I love earrings and there’s nothing better than 9ct gold hoop earrings. I have been wearing earrings for a long time now and have try many different styles, I’ve gone from studs to diamonds but I can’t get enough of these.



The reason why I like them so much is because I love wearing black dresses and the gold color really stands out, the studded earrings are too small for me and are hardly noticeable. In the Jewelry quarter area is my favorite place called Goldcraft. Goldcraft is a must for me they sell the best earrings I can buy I truly recommend them to anyone serious about hoops.

It’s An Emergency!

I was woken up in the night yesterday to the noise of what sounded like either water or gas, so I swiftly jumped out of bed and went to investigate what was going on. I was shocked when I walked into my front lounge downstairs to find that a radiator had started leaking and there was water spraying all over the place.

Immediately I had to get a bucket underneath, but this was filling up very quickly and wasn’t a sufficient way of dealing with the problem. After doing a quick search for local emergency plumbers I found a plumber in my area offering a callout service 24/7 365 days a year so decided to give them a call to see if they could help me out in this time of need!

They were fantastic and got a plumber out to me within the hour, so I wasn’t left waiting long before the professionals were in to help me out with the problem. Would strongly recommend them to anyone and if you are in the Wolverhampton area looking for a plumber then I would say these are probably some of the best guys around.

a way to save waterwater

Have you ever wondered what the weather will be like in the coming months or if a hosepipe ban will be in place due to droughts across the country? If so then be in doubt no more, a water tank can be the solution to all of your problems. Water tanks have been used for decades in order to preserve water fallen in the form of precipitation in areas which suffer from dry spells and low annual rain fall. Water tanks can be installed in various shapes and sizes depending on the use or the volume of water needed to be stored. Water tanks are seemingly simple but yet intuitive pieces of design that I believe every house should posses. As explained in the diagram below, water tanks rely on previous rain fall runoff and stores it in a sealed container that avoids the possibility for evaporation of its contents. The stored water can then be used for various reasons including domestic uses such as showers, washing machines, tap water or even watering the plants when gardening. Large water tanks can also be used for industrial use and can keep water bills down to a minimum by harnessing free water dropped at your doorstep, a truly amazing concept that can save your business hundreds or even thousands of pounds each year. I would highly recommend installing one ASAP if saving money and paying less is your cup of tea, if not then enjoy throwing your hard earned money down the drain and I hope you see the light soon enough.

Your Limo Hire – My Big Day in Essex

Last weekend was my wedding day and making preparations for months prior to this was long winded and stressful, but we wanted it to be perfect and a day to remember. Arriving in style was one thing that we really wanted to focus on, so finding a limo hire company who could cater for our needs was going to be a bit of challenge, so we set out looking for quotes on a selection of vehicles.

limo hire essex


I searched around in the local paper and rang a few companies who were offering services in and around Essex to get a few quotes, and to my surprise they were a lot higher than we had budgeted for, so I decided to take a look online and see if there was any alternatives that might save me a bit of money.

This is where I came across a company called Your Limo Hire, had never really heard of them before but I did remember a friend at work telling me how they had used them for limo hire Essex and the service received was excellent. Offering a huge selection of vehicles in area’s across the country, Your Limo Hire cater anything from a regular stretch down to some more individual cars such as a Mini Cooper limousine and a Range Rover one too!

limo hire

The quote I received from Your Limo Hire was around a hundred pounds cheaper overall than anyone else who had quoted me for limousine hire services, so I decided to go ahead and book it up with them. There was a simple online form which I filled out, simply entering the date and time for my wedding, the vehicle and area I needed and that was it, they called me back with a price within a few hours and it was all sorted and ready to go – fantastic!

Seeking Legal Advice?

In the event of a major event occurring, you may need to involve a solicitor to aid with thing’s such as compensation for workplace injuries, family lawyers to settle assets.

solicitors birmingham


We recently contacted a fantastic group of solicitors Birmingham in regards to a personal injury claim for a client who fell over on a hazardous piece of flooring on a set of stairs at work. This hazard had failed to have been taken care of and resulted in the injured person sustaining a broken arm and bruising in other area’s.

This prevented them from working for weeks, and also had an effect on their personal life not being able to perform certain tasks until their arm had made a complete recovery, which took some time.

This required them to recover compensation for the loss of work. It was a successful claim and the solicitors were fantastic from start to finish, providing imperative legal advice and support throughout and made what seemed such a complicated process, a rather simple one.

Tell The Time With Style

What better way to treat yourself in the new year than to a beautiful new timepiece. A watch says a lot about you and really brings a feel to any outfit, whether it be smart or casual.

A watch can be a fantastic gift for family or friends, especially those who are difficult to buy for it really is something that will live long in the memory and is long-lasting, potentially even a lifetime!

When it comes to making a choice on what to buy, there is a variety of designer watches available on the market from a host of designers such as Rado, Raymond Weil, Gucci and many more. A watch can come in a lot of different styles too, some are self powering automatic watches – these use a battery of any kind and are completely self powering dependant on kinetic movement of the watch to store itself power. These complicated movements are designed by watch companies, and even some of the more executive brands such as Hublot and Rolex develop their own custom in house movements, which is why these watches cost thousands and sometimes tens of thousands.



After doing some online shopping the other day, I looking specifically at watches for women to get a gift for my sister, who’s birthday falls inconveniently so soon after christmas!

I found some brilliant pieces online from a few designers and decided to purchase a beautiful stainless steel Gucci ladies watch from a shop in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter. Well worth taking a look online rather than venturing out into the shops and fighting the crows in the current post christmas sales at the moment.
