Natural salt lamps 

Published October 12, 2017 by Bizzimummy

I now own one of these awesome and very natural salt lamps. 


This lamp comes from Himasal UK who mainly sell their products to trade rather than directly but their items can be purchased in many places.

Salt lamps have actually been around for years but have only recently started appearing in shops and stores for consumers to purchase. I believe many people will soon be wanting one of these in their home, as they certainly make an interesting feature.

These lamps are made with Himalayan rock sal, if you happen to put a finger in your mouth after touching the lamp then it will taste of salt. Obviously the salt itself does not light up, a hole is made in the bottom of the lamp to allow for insertion of a plug in light and base. 


It gives a lovely pinkish soft glow, a bit like a Christmas lantern. It’s really pretty. But as well as being a stunning feature, these lamps even come with some health benefits.

“Salt Lamps clean the air around them using a natural water-absorption process called hygroscopy. Our Himalayan salt pulls in moisture from the air, absorbing dust particles and pollutants with it. The heated bulb then gently warms the salt, releasing the water, but keeping the harmful irritants.”

This process can help with many health problems such as allergies and inability to sleep properly. It can also help with low mood and especially so SAD.

I was so surprised with Just how little these extremely pretty lamps cost. I was thinking in the hundreds but they are actually really cheap. The price goes off the lamp size and weight as they are all different.


Salt lamps can be shaped and carved into all sorts of shapes and sizes. I do love the natural lamp shapes the best. One thing I did not anticipate about my lamp was the weight of it. It is just so heavy and they come much bigger and heavier than mine too. I did struggle to carry mine to its chosen location, and would not want this to fall on my feet. 

DC Comics Wonder Woman Hero Light 

Published August 3, 2017 by Bizzimummy

The lovely people at Paladone have sent me over a brand new light to brighten up my bedroom a bit. 


This is just one of many lights and gadgets that Paladone have. They also have many funky products dedicated to the DC Superheros characters. 

It’s an easy “use from the box” type product with the only assembly being to place the actual light inside the battery box.


It works off either batteries (not included) or a USB cable which is included. The USB cable which I prefer plugs into a standard phone charger or laptop and removes the need for constant batteries. 

Now as you can see by the photograph above. This light doesn’t really look or do that much during the day time. But that all changes once it get darks! 


Yes it’s quite bright, and really illuminates the room. I keep it by my bed, so when things go bump in the night and I start getting scared that the monsters have come in, I simple press the button and it scares them away. It also looks really cool and retro too. Wonder Woman television series is a bit before my time but she is still probably one of my favourite DC characters. 

And if you want one of these then it’s just £19.99. 

Kids lighting from Ginger Snap & giveaway

Published June 26, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Ginger snap are a design led company specialising in unique gifts and light products. There range includes lights for kids or teenagers too, many of which come with an emoji theme like this happy little lamp. 


This happy smiley lamp runs off batteries so no need for trailing cables and has a simple on/off switch. Izebella uses this at night time in her bed to help keep the monsters and robots away. It does not get hot and gives a nice bright glow so she can see but still sleep as it’s not overly  bright. 


The same batteries have been in this lamp for a good few weeks now and it is used most nights for several hours. Therefore it does not use up much juice. One of these costs £25.00 and with most children and teens having a thing for emojis at the moment, it does make a good bedroom accessory. 

They also have emoji lightboxes too. These are plastic display boxes which come with letters, images, numbers and light up to display messages.


They come with 65 letters, numbers, symbols and 51 emoji symbols and images all on plastic see through cards. These don’t require a mains plug or wires either but it does need 6 AA batteries. 


The letters simply slot in on 3 rows and you can get up to 8 of the cards on one row. It does of course look much more effective when switched on in total darkness.


You can write whatever you wish using the included letters, such as birthday messages or even notes or just mess about with the emojis.


This light box costs £24.00. If I was to make a suggestion to improve this product then I would recommend adding some sort of a slot or pull out tray on the back so there is a space to put the many letters and cards, otherwise it means either keeping the box, or finding somewhere to store them all or them becoming lost. 

And if you like the light box then maybe you could win yourself one.
