The Healthy Portion Plate by The Healthy Portion Plate
I'm really pleased I invested in a couple of these plates, for my partner and I. I have realised that what I thought was a healthy portion of rice or pasta was actually too large, and I have cut those down, while increasing the amount of salad and veg we eat. The wording is discreet while reminding you what should go in each section and it also comes with a short, supporting leaflet which explains more (though it's pretty easy to remember anyway). Yes, the plate is melamine and you maybe wouldn't use it to serve your guests at a dinner party, but as an everyday aid to portion control, it is ideal, and a good price compared to some others on sale.

I thought this mirror was a little expensive but - having received it - it is well worth the price. The mirror itself is a good size and the magnifying side is fine for all but very close up work (I am long-sighted and have suctioned a smaller 12x magnifying mirror to this one, for plucking eyebrows etc). It is helpful to be able to tilt the mirror to different angles.

But the lights are the most useful feature of the mirror. Previous mirrors I have purchased have had very dim lights that were next to useless. The two lights on either side of this mirror are sufficient to really light up your whole face - no more going to work in the morning with make-up like a clown!

I severely over-pronate and have bought expensive (£200+) custom made orthotics in the past, only to stop wearing them almost immediately because they gave me such bad blisters. The footdisc insoles were a relevation. Very easily trimmed to size and proved comfortable from the first wear - no blisters, even in a brand new pair of running shoes! They are firmer and more supportive than the insoles that came with my motion control shoes, without being too rigid and unforgiving.

I have been in a lot of pain from plantar fasciitis recently and, although it hasn't gone completely, these insoles seem to have reduced the pain I have been experiencing, allowing me to run again. I would… Read more
