Sano Spray & Wipe Universal 750ml

Hygienic rinse-free surface cleaner. Ideal for cleaning ceramic tiles, marble, Formica, enamel, plastic and other surfaces

This is my favorite kitchen cleaning product. Just spray it on surface and clean it with sponge or paper towel. This product is rinse-free. I usually use it for cleaning my countertops and kitchen table.
I have bought   this product also in refill packs, that is cheaper than buy another spray bottle.
This spray bottle costs 4.15 Euros at my shop, but you can buy it cheaper if you buy it from Sano Shop.

I bought a basket of 6 of  AlmaWin cleaning and laundry products. I already tried bathroom cleaning spray and the first impression was good.

Recently I bought some "super cleaning" product from facebook add. now I have opened a case through Paypal, because the product is absolute crap and the seller refuses to refund me, because I have tried the product. They assume, that they can sell a crap and get away with it? Not in my case!

Paypal already escalated the case and replied within an hour (there was mentioned that the response can take up to 30 days). That's what I call a good customer service. I will update my success with that case, but I am 100% sure, I will get my money back. I think I am not the only one who fell for the add video.

I have two another reviews coming. One will be for Isana Garden Dreams Caribbean Passion shower gel and other will be for R.O.C.S. Uno Calcium toothpaste.

Half a King (Shattered Sea, Book 1) by Joe Abercrombie

Betrayed by his family and left for dead, prince Yarvi, reluctant heir to a divided kingdom, has vowed to reclaim a throne he never wanted. But first he must survive cruelty, chains and the bitter waters of the shattered sea itself - all with only one good hand. Born a weakling in the eyes of a hard, cold world, he cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so has sharpened his mind to a deadly edge. Gathering a strange fellowship of the outcast, he finds they can help him more than any noble could. Even so, Yarvi's path may end as it began - in twists, traps and tragedy.

Product details
Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Harper Voyager; 1st edition (3 July 2014)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0007550200
ISBN-13: 978-0007550203
Product Dimensions: 16.2 x 3.5 x 23 cm

As you probably know, I like fantasy fiction a lot. I suppose this book one of my favourite. While reading the book, I thought that Yarvi is been away for years, but at the end of the book it was clearly said that he have been gone only for months not years. To avoid spoilers, I will say that I never expected ending to be like this. But isn't Yarvi's dream come true?
He did become the person he dreamed about, before his father and brother was killed.
Ironically, I have similar case in my family, when siblings are ready to stab your back to get what they want. Luckily, in my family nobody got killed.
Definitely, I would recommend this book for other readers. I am reading other genres too and that's way I found out which genre I like most. If we are talking about authors, then my favourite author is Lisa Scottoline since I read her Everywhere That Mary Went six years ago.



I am considering in buying Half the World and Half a War too.

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

I started to read his book in April. As I didn't have enough free time, only 245 paginals were read till yesterday. I started reading yesterday again, and now I am finished the book. This was one of those books you can't put down. I was reading in late night and continued all day today. I was addicting.
As I like variety of genres, i read a lot of different books. Detectives, Mystery, Sci-Fi is my favorite. I also like Biographies and historical fiction.
There was some parts in book so good written, that I could place myself in the epicentre of the events (I couldn't recall the proper name in my brain).
I could just see in my imagination how looked Crowley's Bentley, when the retro car was in flames (the movie is being filmed, and I hope they will not destroy a retro Bentley). Fast driving (flying) car in flames, and a flying scooter, surrounded by blue circle.
I am excited to start a new book. It is Half a King (Shattered Sea, Book 1) by Joe Abercrombie
You can buy Good Omens by clicking the pictures below. One is in english and one is in Latvian.

Obsessed With Sci-Fi, Detectives And More

So, I made a conclusion, that I have been obsessed with Sci-Fi, Detectives and things like that (books, movies, etc).
The first time I become obsessed with Detectives was when I read the Everywhere That Mary Went by Lisa Scottoline. It was first book from Lisa Scottoline I read.
Today I got pamflet (I didn't know that word, my son told that to me) for Lisa Scottoline new book Feared

So, I bought Feared and Legal Tender on amazon. I should have paid 34.11 Euros, but I got them for free, because I have had an electronic gift card.
What made me obsessed wit Sci-Fi? These were books from Arkady and Boris Strugatsky and a movie Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets.

I will add a bibliography of Lisa Scottoline. Eventually I will update it with books I have read trom author. I am 100% sure that I had an bibliography in my old blog which I sold to an college student for his report/lecture.

Laundry Products

Today I was doing the whites. I do always use bleach, but I run out previous time and forgot to buy one. So instead of going to the shop I used Fermenta. It is meant for soaking dirty fabrics, such as socks and working apparel. I used it just in the laundry machine with some washing powder.
I used all of my Sano Javel Effect powder, I use it for whites and rarely hor my child jeans.
Fermenta costs 1.16 Euros at my shop.
Sano Javel Effect washing powder costs 7.19 at my shop.

P.S. I am not getting paid to promote these products nor the links to the product pages or listings. I just want people to know, what products I use everyday.

Oskar Dish Washing Liquid With Lemon Scent 500ml

This is the cheapest dish washing liquid available in my shop. It cleans dishes well in any water, hot or cold. I buy it because of the price, as I believe it is the money I flush in my sink. And why to spend more on products you flush down the drain? At my shop it costs 0.52 Euros.
Sure, occasionally, I use other products too, if there are some discounts or I get them for free.
As the shop run out of that product at moment, I bought Russian product. Средство для мытья посуды 500мл ЗОЛУШКА "Лимон", пуш-пул (Dishwashing liquid 500ml CINDERELLA "Lemon", push-pull). I have used it before and it is so good for the price. At my shop it costs 0.93 Euros.
P.S. I am not getting paid to promote these products nor the links to the product pages or listings. I just want people to know, what products I use everyday.

Palmolive Men Refreshing 3in1 250ml Shower Gel

As this product was used by my son, this will be just a small synopsis.
My son always uses 2in1 or 3in1 body wash products. He always buys products that are on sale.
Actually, I used it once, as I run out of my shower gel and used it as a replacement. I do like the smell of men shower gels, shampoos and other shower products.
You can buy it on Fabco, which is an European product online shop.
I replaced the empty bottle with new one from my storage box, it is unisex though.

EWOL Professional SD Apricot 500 ml Liquid Soap

Today I run out of another product. This time it was liquid soap. I am buying this product frequently, because it is cheap and effective. I used them in the kitchen, when I have to wash my hands after dish washing. I bought another liquid soap from them.
I like Jūsma production. They have a variety of cleaning products. I really like their product for cleaning kitchen grease.
Below are the picture of product I reviewed today.

Tommee Tippee (10)Portable Potty Liner

I bought these one month ago in thrift shop. I bought one unopened package and two opened ones. And guess what? I am using them as for my recyclables. I sold the unopened package, but unfortunately, buyer canceled an order because they needed them faster than expected delivery time. Less and less buyers read an actual shipping information.
If they are still available, you gan get them by clicking on image below.

Fa Greek Yoghurt Almond Shower Gel 250 ml / 8.3 fl oz

I finished this product today.
I loved the smell and the consistence if it.
I used this product in past a few times, but this time I was very itchy after using it. No rashes, but only an itching skin. This is weird as I do not have any allergies. Maybe the ingredients have been changed since last time I used it.
Now I run out of this product. Next in my bathroom is waiting an Eco Laboratorie Berry Boom shower Mousse.

MAX FACTOR MIRACLE MATCH FOUNDATION

Today I threw out my favorite foundation at the time. It was Max Factor Miracle Match Foundation. I bought it 13 months ago.
It expired last month. And I admit, I am the person who trows everything out if it is past expiration date.
Yes, I do spend a lot of money on quality beauty products, I can buy a lipstick for 20-30$, but I do not have a plenty of products in my purse. I use cosmetics so rarely, so I never run out of it before the expiration date.
This foundation was the best one I have used. It blends so nicely on your skin. As I bought it too dark in the shade/tone, I mixed it with my face cream and used it more like a face cream.
No, I am not affiliate with HQHair, but I shop here as they offer free international delivery/shipping on every order.
I am an associate with Amazon, but I do not get paid for promoting their page, yet.


I am giving this product a 5 star rating.

Wrong Sized Bed Sheet

I am so mad right now! Couple weeks before I bought a new fitted bed sheet for my mattress. My mattress is 140cmx200cm. I asked the sales assistant which size bed sheet I need to buy to fit to my mattress. Se told that I should buy 140x200 as there is 25cm excess width of fabric to each side.
Yeah, right! I opened it today and it even does not cover my mattress, not talking about additional 25cm. Where the hex is the 25 centimeters if I even can't cover the mattress top?
I can't return the sheet to the shop for two reasons. First, I do not have the receipt any more. Second, it is past the time, I could return the item. It is more then 14 days already.
That is the reason I like shopping in internet. To return an item to internet-shop, I just need to go to local post office. In my case I have to drive to another town to return the sheet to the merchant.
P.S. The sheet wasn't the cheap one!
