Review of Songmics Interlocking Storage Cube Organiser and Giveaway



I am sure that those of you that follow my blog on a regular basis know that I have an  obsession  no I mean a love for collecting blog props. I love pretty tea towels, plates, crockery, bowls and antique bakeware and cutlery. I cannot walk past a charity shop or kitchenware store and not go in. With all these props that I keep collecting, I needed some extra storage space, which is where Songmics UK came to my rescue and introduced me to their lovely interlocking storage cube organiser. 



 The interlocking storage cube organiser comes in a flat pack. The kit consists of panels and doors that are made of high quality pp plastic sheets that can be put together with the ABS plastic connectors . They click into place without using any tools. A Little wooden hammer is provided to help to tap the connectors in place if needed, also provided in the kit are screws and fittings should you wish to secure the cubes to the wall. 

The storage cubes are made from wipe clean plastic and are handy for storing shoes, craft items, toys or other light weight items. Since the cubes fit together with the connectors you can assemble them to different shapes and sizes to suit your needs.



Verdict:
The instructions provided in the box were easy to follow,although initially I found assembling the panels tricky single handed but once I got the hang of it and got familiar with the technique the unit came together. I did find that the more cubes you had to join, it became harder to move the unit without some parts coming detached. However with help of my partner we soon had it put together. The Instructions say that the cubes can hold up to 10 kg in weight but I did find that they started to warp with large heavier items and they are perhaps best used for storing lighter weight things.



I assembled my unit in two separate parts. A stack of 6 cubes for my shoe storage and a six cube for my blog props and craft items. I am really pleased that the extra storage means that all my props  and shoes are now organised well and I can find things more easily. The Storage unit is available from amazon and retails at £ 35.99

**I was sent the Songmics Interlocking Storage Cube Organiser to review , all opinions expressed in this post are my own as are the pictures.

As always I love my readers to have a chance to try products I use. Songmics have been really kind and they have agreed to send one citrusspice reader an interlocking storage cube organiser as a giveaway prize.

The importance of hydration whilst travelling.


Travelling and going overseas is something we do regularly, however to keep safe and healthy it’s important to be careful with what we eat and drink. In foreign countries its best to not eat street food but stick to meals that are cooked in hotels as street food vendors do not always have to follow the hygiene standards that we have in western countries. This may result in food that is substandard and can cause many upset stomachs and food poisoning.

The second most important thing is to keep hydrated whilst travelling, drink plenty of fluids, stick to water as carbonated sugary drinks are not healthy for you.  An adult should  drink at least 6-8 glasses of water in an a average day. Whilst travelling abroad, it is important to stick to bottled water however it can be expensive and if you are trekking or travelling in remote places it may not always be available. That’s when the pod+ bottle comes in handy.

The pod+ is a reusable water bottle with an inbuilt replaceable filter, recently launched by nkdlife.com The filter has the ability to deep clean any type of water be it from the tap, dirty rivers or lakes and removes impurities. It has the capability to filter out 99.9% contaminants making any water safe to drink. The filter will last for 300 bottle refills, this is approx 175 litres of water making it more economical than using bottled water.

The pod+ bottles come in 6 different colours and they are made from BPA free Tritan. The bottles retail at £19.95 and the replacement cartridges are £7.95 each. The bottles are available to purchase from Harrods and nkdlife.com

***I was sent a bottle for review purposes,  all opinions expressed in this post are my own.

As always I love my readers to try out products that I am testing. Nkd life have been very generous and have agreed to send a pod+ bottle out to one citrusspiceuk reader.

Giveaway ~Charles Viancin magnetic stem tea infuser and saucer


Tea or Coffee?  Statistics show that the consumption of coffee is far greater than tea in the world however to me tea is my favourite drink, I hardly ever drink coffee.
Tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant and there are over 3,000 varieties of tea. They can be divided into five basic categories: black, green, oolong, white, and puer. Tea also has many health benefits, it is also a drink that is consumed all over the world in various different forms. Tea is served at breakfast, on street stalls in rustic clay cups to more refined artisan teas parties where the experience and preparation of tea is an art in itself.






































My favourite cup of tea is Indian masala tea made with water, milk, loose tea leaves and a sprinkling of Indian tea masala. This is heaven to me and I crave this every morning, without it my day would not begin.

To help me perfect my cup of tea I use loose tea leaves which I place in my Camellia Tea Magnet and Infuser Set by Charles Viancin. The loose tea and Indian spice is placed in the tea infuser which is popped into a cup and topped with boiling water tea. Once I am happy with the infusion I can use the magnetic stem to lift out my infuser without any difficulty and place it on the silicon saucer that matches this lovely set. All that remains after is to add a dash of milk and a sprinkling of sugar and my daily cuppa is ready.

The Charles Viancin Camellia Tea infuser and saucer is perfect for use with tea bags or loose tea. The infuser is stainless steel and the magnetic stem and saucer are made from 100%. The BPA free silicone, making these totally safe at high temperatures. You can buy the tea infuser for £ 10.00 and the Matching saucer for £ 3.00 from many kitchenware stockists.

**I was sent a magnetic infuser and saucer to try all opinions in this post are of my own.


Charles Viancin have been really kind and they have agree to send one citrusspice reader a magnetic infuser and silicon saucer so that they too can enjoy making a great cup of tea.

Indian Global Gourmet Curry Station Giveaway


My favourite cuisine is Indian and I do cook a lot of Indian dishes at home, however sometimes I like to order an Indian takeaway as the flavour of restaurant food is totally different to home cooked. I think this may be that when I cook at home I try and cook very healthily with less oil and spices and no fried food but once in awhile its ok to eat fatty food that has more oil and is fried too!!!


I am also very particular about having my food really hot.I cannot palate luke warm food. The problem with a takeaway is that by the time it arrives and you serve your self its gone cold. I have found a wonderful solution to this problem. I have discovered the Global Gourmet Curry Station. It is an electric hotplate housing four individual non-stick aluminium pots with toughened glass lids to hold a variety of food. The heating plate is non stick and it has a variable temperature control and integrated heating element. It can be also be used on the table top since it has anti-slip feet on heating plate for safety. The heating plate can also be used to keep breads warm.


Although this curry station is sold as a curry station, I have used it to keep lots of other types of food warm too. It is great  device to keep food warm at the table while you eat. The curry station can easily accommodate food for a family of four.


You can purchase the Global Gourmet Curry Station from amazon and it retails at £49.95. As always I do like my readers to have a chance to try products I review. I am really excited to share that I have one curry station to giveaway to one citrusspice reader.

**I was sent the Global Gourmet Curry Station to review all the opinions expressed are of my own experience of the item.

The World of the Happy Pear Book review and giveaway


Being a vegetarian I am always looking for cook books that have vegetarian recipes in them as I feel I get my monies worth from purchasing the book and also that the author actually understands the vegetarians diet. The world of the Happy Pear is an amazing book. I recently attended the launch for it by Penguin .The authors of the book are David and Stephen Flynn, The twin brothers are based in Ireland where they run  a  The Happy Pear Cafe and shop. They have a fantastic jovial personality that comes through each and every recipe in the book. The twins turned vegetarian  in their late 20's and this is their second book.


The book has a range of recipes ; breakfast, soups,salads, mains. snacks and dips and of course the sweet stuff. The book is beautifully laid out with fantastic photos.The best bit of the book is that both the authors share their personal family photos and show the whole family interacting with the food and cooking and creating recipes. It makes the recipe book more of a journal and gives it a real personal touch.



From the book I have tried various recipes, I particularly liked the super fudgy almond brownies, spring green and cashew pesto and the parsley,cashew and sundried tomato pesto.
My most favorite recipe in the book which I have now made several times is the aubergine rolls. I love aubergines nad this recipe is absolutely a winner.

I would highly recommend the book as it's so useful, the recipes are simple to follow and most can be created without any specialist ingredients.


Illustration:5/5
Content:5/5
Recipes:5/5

Total 15/15

I have scored the book really high but it really does deserve this score as its brilliant. I am really excited that I have two copies of the books to giveaway to two lucky citrusspice readers .

OXO Mandoline Slicer Giveaway


Summer is all about salads and eating healthy, I love to make my salads interesting and eye catching so that not only do they look colorful but they look and taste great too.




The key to a pretty salad is to cut and slice the fruits and vegetables uniformly and neatly. This is when this easy to use simple mandoline slicer by OXO comes in handy.

There is no need to set up an electric gadget. This simple mandoline slicer is so quick to use that your salad will be made in a jiffy.

The mandoline slicer cuts perfect slices, you can adjust the thickness by using the simple slider to three different sizes and also adjust the setting to create julienne or put it on lock position for storage.
The mandoline has a soft handle and a non slip foot to steady it. This is particularly useful to steady the mandoline when slicing hard vegetables such as carrots and potatoes.


It also comes with a spring loaded food holder so that your fingers are protected from the sharp blades at all times. The food holder securely grips the food so that you can get maximum slices from it without waste.






Cleaning this mandoline is easy too, it just needs rinsing in soapy water as the blades are integrated, The feet fold away and the food holder fits onto the mandoline for easy storage.










I love this mandoline as there are no separate blades to mess with, no need for power and its portable so its perfect to take away on camping and self catering holidays.The mandoline comes in a neat box and is available on line or at any homebware store. It retails at £ 40.00

I was sent this OXO Simple Mandoline to test in my kitchen, all views expressed are of my own experience of the gadget.


As always I love my readers to have the opportunity to try out gadgets that I test in citrusspiceuk kitchens. OXO have been very generous and have agreed to send one citrusspice reader a mandoline for them to use in their kitchen too.

Giveaway ~KinderKitchen tools for kids from Kuhn Rikon.


I was introduced to cooking and kitchen chores from a very young age. I vividly remember standing on a stool at the sink rinsing cups whilst my mother washed them. I also remember standing on a stool next to my mum watching her whilst she prepared the dinner. My mum used to give me a butter knife to cut soft things with so that I could develop my chopping skills.

I too followed suit and introduced both my daughters to cooking at a very young age and I am really proud that they have both become very confident in the kitchen. Introducing kids to cook sets them up for life and nowadays so many companies are making available children friendly baking kits, utensils and even children friendly knives such as the new Kuhn Rikon Kinder Kitchen collection.




The KinderKitchen tools for kids is perfect for creating fun in the kitchen for small cooks and budding chefs. The New KinderKitchen range includes the new Dog Knives, available with serrated or non-serrated blades.


Both blades are made from durable Japanese stainless steel, strong enough to cut soft foods but not little fingers. The dog’s ears doubles as a hand guard.

The knives are 17cm in length, and they can be purchased separately or as a set which includes both knives and a pair KinderKitchen cutting shears.

The knives are available in purple and pink or blue and green. The knives are retailing at £7.95 each r can be bought as a pair for £14.95.


An additional set is available which also includes together with the knives the cutting shears which retails at £22.95

These lovely knives are safe for little fingers and are perfect to introduce knife skills to the youngest member of your family.

As always I love my readers to be able to sample products that I have tested in the citrusspice kitchens. KUHN Rikon have been really generous and will send one set of knives to a reader.

Cooking with Old El Paso at Food at 52 and a giveaway

Mexican food is firm favorite in my house, we love the flavours and easy recipes that can be created with simple ingredients. Some of our favorite Mexican recipes are tortillas, burritos, enchiladas, nachos and we love the salsa and the guacamoles.


Old El Paso make cooking Mexican food easy with their deliciou range of sauces, salsas and the ready to fill taco and tortilla  shells and burritos. They recently hosted a Mexican cookery class at Food at 52, a cookery school in Old Street which I absolutely adore having been there several times to cook.


As we waited for the rest of the team to arrive we were spoilt with some delicious nibbles and drinks to get us in the mood of the Mexican evening.


Attending these cookery events are always fun because not only do you get some recipe inspiration from the product, get to enjoy the food created but also make some new foodie friends too.


The cookery session was fun, the vegetarians made a filling of sweet potato, onions, peppers and courgettes  while the non vegetarians created a filling from mince and also chopped  lots of lovely salad toppings to go on top of the tortillas.



I was a guest of Old El Paso at Food at 52 and this post is all about my personal experience of the evening.

As always I endeavour to try and share my experience with my readers so in collaboration with Old El Paso I have one hamper full of Old El Paso goodies for one simply food reader  to win so that they too can create their own mid week Mexican feast to taste.

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and when I am developing recipes I like to have the notes section of my phone at hand so that I can make notes of the stages and quantities I use.

Lazy Arm is a flexible smart phone holder, that is easy to mount onto any surface.





There is a bulldog like clip at the bottom of the holder which clips onto to any work surface, table edge or chair.

Following from the clip is a flexible arm that is made from heavy duty metal and will bend in any direction you wish.



















Attached to the end of the arm is the an adjustable phone holder clip which will hold any size smartphone securely.


You can use the lazy arm in the kitchen where I do or it can be used anywhere in the house or car if you want to watch videos, listen to music or make hand free phone calls. The lazy arm is a strong and heavy duty holder that  is really useful and perfect for a hands free experience. You can purchase the Lazy Arm from Genie Gadgets for only £8.95

Food storage ~ OXO POP containers and giveaway


For someone who spends a lot of time in my kitchen, I find that having organised cupboards for the ingredients is really important. It is crucial that foods such as grains, spices, flours, cereals  and nuts should always be stored in a cool place in air tight containers once they are opened to retain their freshness.


For storage solution , I love the oxo pop range containers they come in an  assortment of sizes and are great as they also stack one on top of the other.Organising your pantry will be a breeze with these see through containers.



The Containers have a unique push-button mechanism that creates an airtight seal  so that the food remains fresh.The button also serves as a handle to lift off the lid. The POP Containers are available in 12 different sizes so they are perfect for many types of ingredients and will fit into the smallest of storage spaces. All POP containers are plastic and are BPA Free. The Oxo pop containers are available in all well know department as well as online from OXO


I would like to thank OXO for sending me some containers for my kitchen, , they have been really kind and have agreed to will send one citrusspice reader 4 x OXO POP 0.5l containers as a prize.
