As we are now entering November, it is time to start think of Christmas and gifts. I recently received some gift ideas for review and received:
Doodle Designer Accessory Bag from eatsleepdoodle
Solid Copper Photo Print from Oakdene Designs
De-Frizz Styling Kit from Envy Professional
Volumising Kit from Envy Professional
Read on to find out what I thought of each product.
eatsleepdoodle Doodle Designer Accessory Bag
I received the doodle designer accessory bag by eatsleepdoodle. It arrived neatly presented and included a pack of 10 pens of various colours. The idea is that you colour in the design on the bag and when you’re done and fancy a change you can machine wash and start all over again.
The bag is a fair size at 23x22cm and perfect for storing make up, jewellery and other girly bits or even for adults for using for various things. Made with 100% cotton outer with neoprene lining it is hard wearing but I wasn’t sure that the bag would washout clean, but I need not have worried as it washed out very well and after leaving the bag to dry naturally it was ready to begin doodling all over again.
The pens are very good quality with bold colours that are very easy to use. There are a good variety of colours giving lots of options for many different doodle designs.
This doodle bag would make a perfect Christmas gift for any artistic child or even an adult as creative doodling and colouring is now becoming more popular throughout all ages from children through to adults. I think this would give anyone many hours of enjoyment to whoever receives this bag and is extremely good value for money at £14.95.
If ever needed, you can also buy the special wash-out pen set separately from the eatsleepdoodle website.
I had great fun being creative and would definitely recommend the doodle bag as a Christmas gift or just as a treat for yourself. It’s such good quality I would most definitely be purchasing from eatsleepdoodle again.

Oakdene Designs Personalised Solid Copper Photo Print
I ordered a Personalised Solid Copper Photo Print from Oakdene Designs. The order process is very quick and simple there is also a choice for personalisation on the frame in two different places and options for a named gift box as well. The price starts from £19 depending on what options you choose.
After uploading a photo from my phone, it took only days to arrive and was well packaged preventing any damage in the post. The photo I had chosen was taken on my phone, so I wasn’t sure of what clarity in quality to expect but I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled with the way the picture had been transferred onto the copper frame. The engraving below the photo is perfect and very neatly done. I’ve chosen this to give to my other half for a Christmas present and I’m sure this beautiful photo will be cherished for many years to come.
I love the way the frame has a base so it’s ready to be put up where ever you wish without needing to mess round to finding a way of attaching to the wall. The frame is made from quality solid copper with a brushed finish, which they print the photo directly onto. The prints boast to be both waterproof and highly scratch resistant and is both manufactured and printed in England.
There are a huge range of lovely and novel gifts on the website many of which can be personalised and with the great speed and efficiency I received my order I will definitely be recommending to family and friends as a source of great Christmas gift ideas.
All in all, I was very impressed with Oakdene Designs and absolutely love my copper print.

Envy Professional De-Frizz Styling Kit
I also received the Envy Professional De-frizz Styling Kit (RRP: £24.95). it arrived in a stylish little carry case containing two black sleek bottles; Style Hero and Super Oil 3.
After washing and towel drying my hair, I applied about five pumps and applied through my hair and then blow-dried with the Style Hero, you can at this point also put on the Super Oil 3, but I did this once I’ve dried my hair (they can be applied to wet or dry hair), the results are amazing! My hair is very fine and frizzy and using this made my hair lightweight, smooth and silky with not a hint of greasiness. The smell is gorgeous it has a lovely pleasant fragrance.
The second time I used the products, I used them both together on towel dried hair and it gave an equally perfect finish. I found it also worked well on my daughter’s knotty hair which made it a lot more manageable. After trying on a variety of different hair types I can confidently say that this product seems to suit all different hair types from thick to thin curly or straight I found a little of the product went a long way, I can see these bottles lasting a long time making this set very good value for money. I will now be using these products regularly and will definitely be buying more. I’ve tried a variety of products all claiming to get the same results, but this has been by far the best I’ve ever used. The Style Hero unique keratin infused formula and the Super Oil 3 camellia, yang and avocado oils are the perfect combination to give a professional long-lasting feel and style to your hair.

Envy Professional Volumising Kit
Having very dull flat and lifeless hair, finding volumising products that actually work can be near on impossible. So after hearing things good things I couldn’t wait to try the Volumising Kit (RRP: £19.95) from Envy Professional. It’s presented in an eye-catching case consisting of a bottle of Style Hero and a bottle of Big Hair Root Volumiser. First off, you apply the Big Hair Root Volumiser onto damp hair concentrating on the areas that need more volume and then apply the Style Hero, together these make the hair more controllable and manageable making blow drying and styling a much easier and far more enjoyable experience. You can then style as you normally would.
For starters, I love the strong scent which gives of a subtle fragrance throughout the day. Being able to use both products together saves a lot of time and effort making the process to getting thick full and luxurious hair very quick and simple and easy to fit in with every hair wash. I would most definitely say that these products do give the promised effect and totally transformed my hair. Both formulas left a smooth feel that was non-sticky or greasy and I was left feeling very impressed. I can see why it’s become salon recommended and for the quality product you receive it it’s very good value for the money. Both bottles are 150mls and only needing to use a few pumps of each at a time this will last very long time. I can honestly say once you’ve tried these you will wonder how you managed before it will change the way you manage and style your hair into a far more enjoyable experience.
