Greetings from Albania!

For the next two weeks I will be coming to you from the sunny country of Albania.  I am not sure how much time I will get to post reviews, but I have taken a suitcase full of products with me that I plan to test and review while I will be away.  


Some of them are samples that I have been given to test, others are ones, that I thought that I would treat myself to, but shhh!  Don’t tell the husband otherwise I wont be allowed to get anything at the airport!


Albania has featured quite heavily in the news of late, due to their Eurovision song contest entry that caused a frenzy on Twitter with users slamming the performance.  I didn’t like the song much, BUT think that it did deserve to finish where it did, it was a very powerful performance and a well written and arranged song and I think that all of the criticism was not completely justified. 


But I saw a comment on the Mail Online that made me smile and it said something like people in the UK think that ‘talent’ comes from shows like the X Factor and treat the desperate fame hungry people that feature on these shows as ‘Celebrities'.  


Anyway, I think that Albania should have entered this song into Eurovision.  This was a huge hit across the whole of the Balkans, Have a listen and see what you think, no screaming, or high notes I promise! J
