The product i received.

Dobell Navy Quilted Coat- XL.

My thoughts.

I received a navy blue coat in XL by Dobell. It came well packaged and arrived within 3 days (in my eyes this is a reasonably quick time), it has a neatly stitched quilted design with plenty of pockets. it fastens together with a zip and covering the zip is another line of fabric fastened with poppers.

I will start off with my positive notes that I gathered after about a week of wearing it, firstly it was comfortable to wear, had no sharp points (such as the label and missed stitches).

There is plenty of pockets 2 in the sides 1 on the chest and 1 inside, the pockets are a decent size and i managed to fit drinks, keys, food and all manner of parenting items.

This one may seem a bit contradictory later in the post but hey ho here we go i found the coat to have a really nice fit, wasn’t too baggy at the bottom but also wasn’t too tight around the chest, arms or neck, and wasn’t restricting any sort of movement in my arms.

When out and about in cold windy weather the coat kept me warm, i didn’t feel any sort of breeze, generally it kept me warm when i needed it but on the other side of the scale it kept me cool when i went into a warm room/shop, unfortunately i haven’t tested in the rain as of yet to see how waterproof it is but as soon as i get the chance i will be making this a priority to test out.

Here is the bit where no one likes to hear about their product (sorry Dobell but i need to be honest in my review and give the bad as well as the good). I said before that i was going to be a bit contradictory with the size of the coat, normally i am a XL size in most things and occasionally have a large, unfortunately the coat was slightly too small for me, all though its still comfortable to wear i think their sizes just need a slight adjustment to make the XL coat i had slightly larger.

My only other bad point is the bottom of the zip (as you connect the two sides) is a little small for people with large fingers such as myself. I feel that if it was a bit larger then it would be tonnes easier for anyone to zip up and even with gloves on it wouldn’t be a hard task.

Thanks for reading my very own written review (Sorry if you found it a bit boring)

Christmas Gift Guide 2017.

Each year, i am finding it harder and harder to think of good gifts for people and it really starts to stress me out! So i took to Twitter and found some perfect gifts you could give your children/family/friends and partners.

My Name Tag.

Ever struggle with labelling your children’s stuff?

I was sent an email asking if I could test some labels for & I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to use them for Rosie’s Christmas cards for her class.

As you can see slightly from the above picture I chose a sticker that says ‘Merry Christmas’ with a Santa and snow flake background. The stickers came out with such good quality and the colour really does pop. The writing is easy to read and ver child friendly so makes the choice of putting them in the cards better.

The packaging was great, sent with a protective covering with a little window so you can see your stickers. I feel with the way some postmen handle our mail- the protective sleeve is very good.

When designing your tags, you can design and personalise them as you with (using the tools on the website to help) & you can use up to 3 lines with 15 characters on each.

Obviously you don’t have to use these just for Christmas, I just felt this would be the perfect opportunity to trial them out. These would be great for Christmas presents!

You can get stickers & iron on labels, so perfect for school equipment & clothes.

I must admit the stickers are a little tricky to peel of the page, but a small price to pay for good quality stickers.

You can get 56x name tags for £11.95+£1p&p, I mean that’s a bargain!

Until next time x
