Genesee Beard Co 'Bootlegger' Beard Oil

Review: Genesee Beard Co ‘Bootlegger’ Beard Oil

Genesee Beard Co ‘Bootlegger’ Beard Oil is as the name implies a Bay Rum scented beard oil, made from 100% natural ingredients and made in small batches. I have just finished using the Genesee Beard Co ‘Bootlegger’ Beard Oil, I had previously reviewed their ‘Mountaineer‘ Beard Oil and so I knew the base oil would be good, so this was just about the scent. I have to admit and this won’t be surprise if you have read my reviews before, I am not a fan […]

Inverted T Wave

Naturally occurring Inverted T waves on ECG

Yesterday I ended up in A&E (ER) with chest pains, now this isn’t as worrying as it sounds because I get Naturally occurring Inverted T waves on ECG. Of course once the cardiac nurse saw this, she had to follow protocol as they can’t take the risk that I am not actually suffering from a blocked artery or having a heart attack. So it was blood tests, aspirin and a nice dose of diamorphine, which also took the pain away in my legs. I haven’t […]

Beardpilot 'Daredevil' Beard Oil

Review of Beardpilot ‘Daredevil’ Beard Oil

I prepared myself, Beardpilot ‘Daredevil’ Beard Oil contains Chilli seed oil and I was prepared to feel the heat on my face, I had previously tested the ‘Daredevil’ Tash wax that left my top lip tingling for about ten minutes. However I was safe, a slight warm sensation but that was it and so I decided to also use the ‘daredevil’ wax on my tash again and within a minute the skin between my nose and mouth was alive with the heat of Chilli seed […]

Virgin Media

Virgin Media TV should you choose them over Sky?

Virgin Media TV should you choose them over Sky? In short the answer is no! Now I will admit that Virgin Media broadband is amazing, it’s the reason I signed up with them in the first place. Their TV is in a totally different league however, the TiVo box is so slow and it makes watching TV very frustrating. I have phoned them many times about this and they have asked me to press certain buttons in a sequence to turn features off and speed […]

Disability benefits: PIPs should be for ‘really disabled’ – BBC News

I am sat at home, in fact I have only been out once this year and it’s almost the end of February, but don’t worry, I am really disabled! I am a full-time wheelchair user and suffer chronic pain 24/7 and it wins every time I try to fight back, I am disabled, physically disabled. However I know only too well what it is like to be crippled by anxiety, suffering so bad that you can’t step a foot outside. I started having panic attacks […]

Beardpilot 'Rogue' Beard Oil

Review: Beardpilot ‘Rogue’ Beard Oil

Beardpilot ‘Rogue’ Beard Oil is an all natural beard oil from Denmark that softens your beard, gives it a healthy sheen and also helps to stop beard itch, dry skin and spots, but without any scent! I personally like a scented oil, but many guys don’t want to have a scented product on their beard, but they still want the benefits that using a beard oil brings. I run ‘Guardians of the Beard‘ for bearded guys on Facebook and we often get guys joining who […]

Uccello Kettle

Review of Uccello Kettle the modern take on the tipping kettle

I was sent the Uccello Kettle for test and review, it is a modern take on the tipping kettle that looks good and performs perfectly. I have arthritis in my hands but it doesn’t cause too many problems, my disability is with my legs and I am full-time wheelchair user. I thought I would test the product and try to see it from the view of someone who would have problems using a standard kettle. I hadn’t actually realised that the Uccello Kettle would make […]
