Product Review: Liberta DY511C (Extra Large) 3 platform/4 storey hamster cage

I’ve previously had pet rats but this time around I’ve got a Syrian hamster as my animal companion and she needed a suitable cage. I did a lot of looking around online before choosing a one. Syrian hamsters need quite a bit of space but I had a budget to consider and a particular space that it had to fit into – as such a taller cage with plenty of levels was more suitable than a very wide single storey cage. After a lot of review reading and price comparison I finally chose the Extra Large DY511C Syrian Hamster cage by Liberta and purchased it from an online retailer.

Product Review: Schwarzkopf Palette Salon Colours

A permanent hair dye. I used 4-89 Maghogany Brown – I’d describe it as a deep red.
This was easy to use – no drips or mess. The smell was pleasant, with no strong ammonia odour. The colour result was pleasing, and matched the predicted tone on the packaging. I would definitely use it again, and would recommend the brand.

Product Review – The Shy Pig

The Shy Pig bottle front and back
A white wine that accompanied a family Bank Holiday lunch. Light and refreshing, this is a wine-based drink from Australia. My family and I found it very enjoyable.

Despite the “wine-based” label, which indicates 75% wine with the remainder made up of water and/or unfermened fruit juice, it had an ABV of 10.5%. In fact for the lower price, and the easy drinking nature of Shy Pig, it seems a fair trade, although it should be made clearer by retailers that this not 100% wine.
