Light Block Clip On Reading Light Review

This is perfect for when you need a light to read by but don’t want to disturb anyone else near by. Erganomic and stylish, it simply clips onto the back of your book, the goose neck bends over your page and you turn the light on by pressing the grey square.

As you can see the light is quite bright but there isn’t any light pollution around the book and it didn’t strain my rather light-sensitive eyes at all.

I bought the Light Block from Waterstones for around £6.00 and was pleased to see that it comes with 3 X AG3 (LR41) batteries which are easy to replace. This light really has got me into reading again!

Yeti Lap Warmer from Firebox

Is this yeti lap warmer cute and fluffy? Yes but is it warm? Kinda…

When you touch a cat or a yeti – I imagine – it doesn’t feel immediately warm but when it’s snuggled on your lap and then it jumps off you really notice the difference and miss the warmth it created. It’s the same with this yeti.

If you are the type of person who is really prone to feeling cold it won’t give any where near enough heat. Seriously, buy a heated blanket, tie it to your seat and put a pretty throw over it instead.

The yeti is perfect for cuddling up to if your back gets cold in bed or there’s a chill in the air or your upset and need something nice and warm to cuddle. If you need guanine heat, I’d give it a miss and get a hot water bottle with a fluffy cover and put googly eyes on it instead.

It is incredibly easy to use and comes with a built in battery and USB charger but I think £34.99 is too dear for a warm ‘adorable snowman’.

Note: After reading my feedback Firebox immediately offered to give me a refund and ask if there was anything else they could do, which is some of the best customer service I’ve had from a company. I decided to keep the yeti as I realised his belly does warm up better than his back ^~^
