Vremi Products Review And Giveaway

What's in my routine?

Well on a normal working day I will get up around 5am along with my wife and daughter, our son gets up about an hour later and gets himself ready for high school and I know some people reading this may think "God that's early" whilst others will feel my pain.

And for those people who rise at a similar time as us, many will go to bed early to try and counter their lack of sleep - but nope - not us.
We go to bed between eleven and twelve every evening - there is just so much to do once the kids are in bed, which means if we are lucky we get a good five hours kip!

It's definitely something which our bodies seem to have grown used to and don't get me wrong sometimes it's a real struggle but because we are parents it's something we just have to do.

Getting up early isn't new to me though - I've done it the last nineteen years, since the day I started in the industry I work in.
Long working shifts aren't a stranger to me either - I work in the service and repair industry and I only finish work each day once the jobs stop coming in.
I'm also on 24hour standby one in every four weeks so on an average week I can work between fifty and sixty hours, more on my callout week.

My wife, on the other hand, is now a stay at home mum who is run off of her feet from the moment Willow wakes up to the moment she goes to bed.
Willow has just turned two and wow is she one active kid and one who doesn't often have a daytime nap now either - she's not "a bad kid" at all but definitely, an attention needy one and wow does she demand that attention - all day.

I do feel really bad sometimes when I have to work late and don't manage to see Willow before she goes to bed and also at not being able to lend a hand with her at tea time or getting her ready for bed but being the only worker in the household now, I have to do the hours when I can so we can afford to live and pay those stupid bills.

I hope you don't think I'm crying the poor tale, I just wanted to share with you a small piece of what our life is like as it leads me on to showing you the one thing that helps us battle through.

And that is COFFEE



Coffee is the first thing I consume in the morning and probably the last thing at night too - I love it.
I love the taste of it, the smell of it and even the look of it.

I take mine with milk and one sugar - recently gone down from two sugars - I love it extra milky and I'm a massive fan of a latte.

But there is one thing I hate about drinking coffee and that is when someone makes me a brew and they use cheap coffee - I can smell it a mile away.

I'm not a snob at all, I just know what I like and that isn't cheap coffee. 

I have had fallouts with Simone in the past when we have been a bit skint and she's bought a cheaper brand, trying to tell me its one which I like...she knows not to bother penny-saving in the coffee area anymore - I sulk far too much.

I normally have instant coffee but it has to be a good instant coffee, and, like I mentioned above, my time is limited so the quicker the coffee the better.

Over the last few months I have grown partial to an espresso or two- something I've not always been a fan of in the past, but after working on an Italian run site a few months ago and them bringing me an espresso every hour I definitely grew fond of them and actually became a big fan.

Luckily I now have the perfect tool to aid me with my new Espresso Love and that's the Vremi Stovetop Espresso Maker  



It's a classic Italian coffee maker - perfect for espresso lovers like me - and it only takes around five minutes to make them so it's perfect for me to use in the morning before I rush off to work.



It will make six small espresso shots and has a capacity of 1.4L.

All  I do is fill the bottom compartment with the correct amount of water needed, then add my pre-ground coffee into the filtered compartment, pop it on the ceramic hob and let it work its magic.

Easy.

I always add a little drop of milk into mine just to take away the bitterness and I have to say this is definitely my most used item in the house now...well, maybe second but only to my Playstation.

Now, thats the coffee lovers sorted out, let's move on to something which I will use most likely once or twice a year around Christmas time.

If you follow me on one of my social media channels then you may know that I'm not the biggest drinker in the world and that it's not often I partake in alcohol drinking anymore - don't get me wrong, I've done my fair share in the past but since I have had kids it is something which just doesn't interest me anymore.

The only time I really drink is if it's a special occasion and I am out, or if it's Christmas and maybe a bottle of prosecco or buck fizz with our meal is being opened and even then it will only be a glass or two so you can imagine just how much gets wasted.
Thinking about it, I don't think there has been any other sort of alcohol in our house for the last two years.

But I have found a solution for the opened-prosecco-wastage-problem...well Vermi have.

Not only do they make a great espresso maker they also make this handy Wine Preserver and Vacuum Stopper Set



So, one of the main reasons that bottled alcohol spoils is because of oxygen entering the bottle once it is opened - this isn't a problem when the full bottle is going to be drunk in that sitting - but if you're only going to have a glass or two then the oxygen is going to spoil it.

But this is where the Vremi Preserver comes in handy because it effectively sucks all of the air back out of the bottle leaving a topin place, creating a vacuum, meaning the drink remains perfect for another few days.



All you need to do is place one of the stoppers into the bottle hole and then place the pump over it and pump away.
The stopper also has a date mark on them so you can keep track of how much life the bottle has left.

I think out of both of the Vremi products the espresso maker will get used more by the Baker Bunch.

However I do think both of these products are a great value buy - and the stopper set will be perfect at Christmas parties - and because I like them both so much I am going to give you the chance to win your own.

All you have to do is enter the giveaway below and it will end on the 13th of November.

Good Luck Guys
