ELECTRICALS - Keep Your Running Costs Low

What do you look for when buying a new TV or digital box – a cheap purchase price or ease of use? Sust-it, the energy efficiency site for electricals, thinks running costs should be top of everyone’s shopping list in these belt-tightening times. Sust-it shows how, choosing the most energy efficient electricals, could save over £500 per year off your bills, and now they’ve teamed up with Ricability (Research Institute for Consumer Affairs) to provide the low-down on ease of use and viewing performance of digital TVs, recorders and set top boxes.

Sust-it ranks over 4,000 household electrical goods, from TV’s to tumble dryers, by their running costs and CO2 emissions, issues that are important to more and more consumers. Ricability provides impartial and independent reviews of digital TV products; to help shoppers decide what to buy. Their digital TV test programme has been funded by the Government to help consumers through switchover.

Ross from sust-it said: “There’s a staggering difference between the energy consumption of electricals in the marketplace – which we’ve been highlighting through our unique ranking system. It’s great news that Ricability sees the value publishing their unbiased reviews on our site – hopefully the real winners will be consumers and the environment during the digital TV switch!

Caroline from Ricability said: “Our digital TV testing is based on research with real users and we are independent of manufacturers and retailers, so free to report our findings without fear or favour. We’ve recognised that sust-its energy saving site is reaching a wide audience and we look forward to providing the best possible unbiased information usability of digital TV products and help them reduce their energy bills too.

PRODUCT - Mums Love Cowshed Maternity

Celebrity Mum Jo Whiley and mum to be Colleen Rooney are the latest to confess their love for Cowshed's new Maternity and Baby Ranges.

Jo regularly uses the frothy body wash and buttery bottom balm on little Coco Lux and Coleen is using the entire Maternity range to keep her looking and feeling great throughout her pregnancy.

I have tried many other products within the wider range from Cowshed and can definitely vouch for their pampering effectiveness. The carefully selected ingredients help to relax or invigorate depending on the results you hope to achieve. Combine beauty and body products with the lovely scented candles for a true spa experience, perfect for mums needing a few moments to themselves.
