Linziclip - Product review

I was a bit skeptical when I saw a "new" design of claw clip being promoted by Linziclip, but I'm always on the lookout for good accessories to keep my hair up and out of the way, so I asked if I could have some to review.

They kindly sent me the "midi" size - suitable for medium to thick hair, and the "mini" (which comes in a pack of three), suitable for most hair types.

The first thing I noticed was the shape, unlike traditional claw clips, the springs are hidden to the side, which means the back and front of the Linziclip are flat, so you can lie down with the back of your head on the floor and still be comfortable. In fact, wherever you lay your head, there are no pointy bits of Linziclip that can stick into your scalp.

The other thing I noticed about the shape is that it seems to mean that the Linziclip grips the hair better and stays in place longer than traditional claw clips. Whilst previously I've had to be constantly pinning my hair back up, with the Linziclip I only had to redo my hair twice in a whole working day, and that's a big winner for me.

And last, but not least, because of the unique design of the Linziclip, there's a field at the back where they've added colours and patterns so that you get a nice looking accessory for your hair.

All in all, I'm really impressed with the design and functionality of the Linziclip and I'll definitely be adding more to my collection.

If you want to buy one, they're available on eBay 

I really believe they'll make a great addition to any hair accessories collection.

Reasons to be cheerful - 5th October 2017

It's a quickie this week... I'm still loving my job and really glad that I made the move. I submitted two commissioned articles to editors and they were happy. I'm off on a trip, a couple of nights away (more on that next week). Hope you've had a great week too.

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.

3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
