5.0 out of 5 stars Good hands free car kit as long as you have a 3.5mm socket, 28 Jan. 2015
The FRiEQ Bluetooth handsfree kit will enable you to take hands free calls from your mobile phone and listen to any audio/music from your Bluetooth enabled devices such as phones/tablets via your car radio/speakers.

Please note - You will need to have a 3.5mm headphone socket in your car in order to use this.

What's in the box?

- The main Bluetooth control unit with built in USB to 3.5mm jack plug
- A dual USB charger that fits into the cigarette lighter socket
- Instruction booklet

The unit is well made from robust plastic and has a 3M/magnetic sticky plate on the back of it. The cable from the control unit is around 30 inches long and it does have an unobtrusive LED status light on it.

In use -

Set up is dead easy. . .Just stick the control unit on your dash using the 3M/magnetic plate - Plug the Dual USB charger into your lighter socket - plug the USB from the control unit in - plug the 3.5mm plug into your headphone socket on your radio - connect your Bluetooth device to the control unit (it will come up as Frieq BTA02)and you can now play your audio and receive hands free calls. The beauty of the dual USB charger is that you can charge your phone whilst using the handsfree.

Using the controls on the unit you can ffw/rew - next/prev music and answer and reject calls. Call quality is good at this price point - clear enough and ultimately safe! As has been mentioned there is 'some' road noise but nothing enough to take away from the call.

All in all a very nice little set up which will provide hands free capability and enable you to stream music/audio from your Bluetooth devices like phones and tablets. Of course you could also use this to play your music from your devices through your old but still great stereo systems too!

I was kindly sent the FriEQ hands free kit by the manufacturer for review purposes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice pair of in ear headphones - great audio quality., 27 Jan. 2015
With the Soundpeats QY7 headphones you can connect these wirelessly via Bluetooth 4.1+EDR to any audio device with Bluetooth capability to enable you to listen to your music/audio books/podcasts. They also house a microphone so you can make/answer hands free calls.

In the box you get -

- The rechargeable headphones in black and lime green
- A short Micro USB charging cable around
- Ear- buds in sizes small - medium - large
- Ear hooks in sizes Small - medium - large
- Instruction manual (which is tiny enough to need a magnifying glass to read)

The headphones are made from plastic are very lightweight and the wire connecting the two earphones is unobtrusive. They feel and look quite well made. On the right side phone you have all the functions -

- Power on/off
- Vol + also next track for music
- Vol - also prev track for music
- Mic
- Micro USB charging port
- LED light

In use -

I charged them up for around 2 hours and got 5 hours of playtime from them. Bluetooth connection is easy and they come up on your devices as 'QY7'

Music audio through these is very good. It's certainly enjoyable and more than acceptable for the price-point. Spoken audio such as radio or audio books is spot on for me. I use the tune In radio app a lot from my phone and these are spot on for that. Volume is good (there's 28 steps of volume) and they do go loud. 80's electro, heavy metal, some classical and Vanilla Fudge's 'You keep me hanging on' sounded really good though these. I'd say they lean towards the bass end of things but provide clear mids and highs too.

You can take a phone call through these phones as they will just act as a Bluetooth headset would. They are pretty good for this use and work well. Comfort-wise a few hours of wearing was okay and they do cancel external noise out really well for me.

A good set of earphones at a decent price, perfect for throwing in the rucksack, bag, car. If you're making your first Bluetooth headphone purchase or need a spare set these are good to go in my opinion.

I was kindly sent these earphones by the distributor for review

5.0 out of 5 stars Brown sugar, how come you taste so good. . . ., 26 Jan. 2015
I was very kindly sent this Organic Coconut Palm Sugar for review purposes.

Before I say anything I will say that this is sugar. It's definitely somewhat better for you than everyday white refined sugar but it's still sugar - too much will produce the same effects.

A well presented thick plastic bag containing 250g of coconut sugar was delivered. The bag contains loads of information regarding the sugar. It is Vegan/Vegetarian society approved.

What is coconut sugar?

A cut is made in the flower of the coconut palm. The sap is then collected in containers and taken away. This sap is then boiled to drive off excess water. A syrup is initially formed then further water is boiled off until brown crystals of coconut sugar are formed. Basically that's it.

Refined white sugar is classed as empty calories as it has nothing in it at all except sugar. Coconut sugar does retain some of the nutrients found in the coconut palm. To be honest there isn't much recorded data regarding this but what we do know is that is does contain Iron - Zinc - Potassium and Calcium. Some short chain fatty acids and a small amount of antioxidants. It also contains a fibre called Inulin which 'slows down the rate of absorption' into the bloodstream. Which explains why coconut sugar has a lower GI (Glycemic Index) value than refined white sugar.

The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar levels. Glucose is given a GI of 100 and if a food has a GI of 50, then it raises blood sugar half as much as pure glucose.

The GI value of coconut sugar is said to be around 35 whereas refined white sugar is 60.

What is coconut sugar like?

It's a caramel brown colour made from quite large sugar crystals and soft to the touch. It also has a low melting point and readily dissolves so is perfect for use in the kitchen. What I like about it from a kitchen point of view is the flavour. It does have a definite caramel-like flavour to it almost toffee-like. Not too strong - understated but definitely there.

How can it be used?

Exactly the same way as refined white sugar. I have been using this in my coffee. I use brown sugar anyway but this adds a little something to coffee which brown sugar does not. Maybe it's the flavour? To me it appears somewhat 'less' sweet than white sugar which is a good thing I suppose. I've also used this coconut sugar to make a New York style cheesecake - cookies -red velvet cake and Nigella's Clementine cake which all turned out amazing! It's good to go for pancakes and waffles too and sprinkled on porridge.

I like this coconut sugar a lot! Love the flavour and the fact that I can replace like for like in my cooking/baking where I would use refined white sugar.

I think I might have been converted to go to coconut from refined. Another thing about this stuff is - it is pricey compared to refined so you will use it sparingly and most probably less of it!

Sweetly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for the kitchen. . ., 24 Jan. 2015
I was kindly sent this Organic Extra Virgin Coconut oil by the distributor for review along with some other products from the Organikku range. I have used coconut oil before for cooking and baking. My partner has used coconut oil for many years on her hair and skin.

This is a single 500ml tub of unrefined organic extra virgin coconut oil. It is also vegan friendly. Upon arrival you will find that it is a solid at room temperature but - it does have a very low melting point and will readily melt into it's oil state on the palm of your hand.

This Coconut oil is 100% pure cold pressed and the method of extraction is expeller pressed. This means that the coconut oil was pressed out at a high pressure without the aid of heat. Heat does produce higher quantities of oil but. . .cold pressing produces a higher quality oil which retains all the flavour, nutrients (Vit E+K and Iron) and fragrance with a shelf life of about 2 years.

Note - Keep stored in a cool, dark place.

In use at above room temperature -

This Coconut oil is colourless, slightly sweet and coco-nutty to taste as it is edible and this particular oil is food grade and is approved by the Vegan and Vegetarian societies.

What can you use this for? - This coconut oil is free from Cholesterol - Gluten - additives and preservatives as it is 100% raw and natural.

You can use it in the kitchen as a butter substitute for - spreading - shallow frying - in salads - baking. I would also add that as with any oils - watch how much you are eating. Although this stuff is reported to be a miracle type food - it does contain fats!

Other uses - I have also used this to massage my partners body head to toe several times. Just get a generous amount in your hands and cup them together - it will melt quickly and a little goes a long way! It has a rather nice glide to it across the skin and gives the skin a nice lustre after a massage as it's readily absorbed making a great moisturiser. Other health uses for this oil would be as an everyday moisturiser, in your bath, it's good for your hair, improving thickness and strength, reducing dark circles around the eyes and as a makeup remover!

My partner has been using coconut oil on her hair for years and swears by it. She has afro type hair and straightens it. She applies a small amount of this oil afterwards and runs it through with her fingers to the tips. It smells quite pleasant and gives a shine to her hair as well as giving protection, and providing some some control.

Just a quick one in regards to massage - I would definitely check that the person being massaged did not have an allergy before use (you could do this by rubbing a tiny amount on the back of the leg) and I think nowadays it goes without saying that if used as a lubricant (and it can be) it can damage a condom and render it useless!

So sum up - this is quite the all rounder oil and has been used for all the above for centuries in Asia, India and many other countries. It has a very acceptable taste and appears to go a long way in every use you can find for it.

Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive functional bag for commuting/travel, 24 Jan. 2015
I was very kindly sent this bag for review by the manufacturer and have been using it now for just under two weeks and I'll just jump straight in and say I like it a lot. The bag I received is what I would call 'school trouser grey' with a striking turquoise interior.

The Crosskase 3 in 1 bag is a soft shell multi-use bag which provides all your needs when travelling on business or if you need a portable office away from home on whilst holiday or like me your laptop is like a third limb and you need mobiles/tablets/headphones/Bluetooth speakers/flash drives/pens/pencils, magazines and notebooks to come along for the ride. It can also be carried as a laptop bag - tote bag - messenger bag thanks to the built in side handles, hidden shoulder straps and separate across body strap.

I will probably repeat a lot of what other reviewers have said here (great review by John Ryan) and be posting similar pics as that of the brilliant pics by Chris M but what I can add is that I have extensively used this bag which has been bumped - bashed - clattered on bus - train - taxi - bicycle - and taken on it's first aeroplane ride (I'll get to Scotland before ye!) Quite literally the urban jungle!

The presentation of the delivered bag is spot on. It comes in a protective drawstring bag which just tells you that this is going to be a quality item and the manufacturer wants this to get to you in pristine condition - and it did. . . .

The bag is made from robust 600 denier polyester which by nature is splash proof (although the manufacturer doesn't claim this) and is easy to wipe clean inside and out. The build quality is first class and much better than more expensive bags I've seen. All the stitching is spot on and well finished, handles are strong as are the straps/D rings and padding is excellent where needed to protect your gadgets. All the zippers have a smooth action and have good pulls/tags on them. The messenger style strap is also well made and is robust, padded and comfortable in use.

In the closed position the bag measures (W)13 x (L)17.5 X (D) 4 inches and is very lightweight when empty.

In use -

This has been very well thought out and designed. There's loads of storage packed into this bag. There's 9 compartments, 6 zippered (inside and out) and 3 inner Velcro pockets as well as three wide elasticated pen holders - you can easily get two pens/pencils in each one. The Velcro pockets are substantial and can fit an iPad - large mobile - notebooks - memory cards - earbud style or Bluetooth headphones etc. The iPad and mobile pockets are lined with a microfibre type material which will further protect your gadgets. There's two large mesh pockets to house all your cables so you don't have to go fumbling around and can see what you need and there's plenty of room in there for loads of cables!

This is a lovely bag indeed and I did have a few comments of "where did you get that bag?" Walking around Liverpool city centre last weekend. It was packed solid there as usual these days and walking around with my notebook/iPad/newspapers/paperwork/power cables etc in this bag (in light rain at times) was easy. The bag is quite streamlined and holds its shape well so it doesn't swing around wildly like others I've had bashing everything in its wake! I'm always terrified walking through John Lewis crystal glass dept but with this bag it wasn't too bad. As I said to start I have been using it and substantially so. It is still in pristine condition and shows no sign of wear whatsoever.

To sum up the Crosskase is four bags in one for me. . .

- Vertical bag
- Horizontal bag
- Backpack
- Messenger bag

A stylish, modern, splash proof, comfortable and easy cleanable multipurpose bag which is not just for computers!

Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars About time I got a good rest. . . ., 16 Jan. 2015
I'll get me coat. . . .

I was kindly sent these by the distributor for review. Being a mad keen home cook I was more than happy to give em a go! I received the four multicoloured set. I have been using silicone kitchenware/baking utensils for several years now.

You get four silicone spoon rests here. The colours I received were - Red > Orange > Sky Blue > Yellow. The colours are vibrant and the spoon rests appear to be of good quality compared to ones I have seen before. The spoons have no smell about them at all.

Why silicone?

It's extremely heat resistant being able to withstand temperatures of upto 230 deg or 446 deg F or gas mark 8 - easily cleaned - dishwasher safe - hygienic - tough and flexible so will not crease.

I've had loads of spoon rests over the years in ceramic (breaks), rubber (corrodes), steel (not bad) and wood (stains and chips eventually). I've been changing a lot of my kitchen stuff over to silicone which I find dead easy to handle, brilliantly functional and easy to keep clean as nothing sticks to it.

This rest is brilliant. A nice big size at just under 9.0 inches long x 4.7 inches wide and just over an inch deep! I like the depth of these so I can rest a deep soup ladle on it with no problem! You can actually rest a few utensils on this at the same time.

It feels good as there's a bit of weight in it, they haven't been tight with the silicone so it's nice and thick-ish with a good build quality unlike a lot of cheapo ones I've come across.

Yep really like these, should last for years! Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silly cone mats rock!, 16 Jan. 2015
I was kindly sent these by the distributor for review. Being a mad keen home cook I was more than happy to give em a go! I received the four multicoloured set. I have been using silicone kitchenware/baking utensils for several years now.

You get four silicone mats here. The colours I received were - Red > Orange > Sky Blue > Yellow. The colours are vibrant and the mats appear to be of good quality compared to ones I have seen before. The mats are just under 7 inches square and have no smell about them at all.

Why silicone?

It's extremely heat resistant being able to withstand temperatures of upto 230 deg or 446 deg F or gas mark 8 - easily cleaned - dishwasher safe - hygienic - tough and flexible so will not crease.

What can you use these silicone mats for?

- As a non slip table placemat for a plate
- To protect surfaces from the bottom of red hot pans/casserole dishes and such
- Makes it easy to open tight lids on jars/bottles. As it's so flexible you can put this in your hand to unscrew lids
- Can be used to grip ovenware straight out of the oven but - you need to be quick as silicone does actually conduct heat to some extent. I personally would always still use a teet owl or is that a bird? :)
- Due to the textured pattern on the surface of these mats they are brilliant for peeling garlic! You just put a clove on the mat - roll it up into a cylinder shape and press down a bit and roll the clove a few times. The raised grips on the mat do remove or loosen the peel

I have been using these types of mats for years and these ones here are very good indeed. They come in so handy you'll wonder how you ever managed without them!
