Westminster London United Kingdom – Really Why?

Universal Levels do not want to cause upset, offence or any hurt to those involved in the horrendous events that occurred yesterday. We express our deep condolences to those who experienced a loss. We also wish to send positivity and best wishes to those who have been hurt or emotionally scarred by the events. Stay together as a community and we will get through this.

 

Dear Government and T.May,

Just a few thoughts from normal people who live in London:

– Didn’t Parliament know that something was going to happen? That’s why you moved Scotland Yard right? It’s now situated on Parliment Square isn’t it? Wasn’t you going to put scaffolding up around your house this year? Our beautiful tourist attraction was going to be hidden wasn’t it? Hmmm all seems a bit fish to us.

– We do not mind you paying tribute to the police officer but this morning was cold! You mentioned the police officer numerous times in your speech, yet those innocent got mentioned purely by nationality. A police officer is paid to possibly be hurt, this does not take away from the loss of life and events. Yet they are trained for crisis. Give your unpaid people more respect, the civilians are not trained to deal with anything on this scale. They were possibly consumed taking pictures of our beautiful crime filled city. Why do they not receive the same respect as he who also died?

– If it is down to an extremist then why are you allowing them to be free? Come on now. A murderer is a murderer, and they get time in prison. That murderer may have been framed or acted in self defence. It could be their first real conviction yet they will go to prison. But you as a government let free people who you KNOW want to fuck up our country. In text slang “OMG WTF”.

– You have not changed the threat level to our country. Again “OMG WTF” if there is no threat what is all the commotion and terror talk about? That my dear Mrs May is a little confusing and contradictory bearing in mind London is worldwide news. A man who was previously involved in evil towards our country now actually attacks our country; that sound like a threat to us.

– How did the whole occurrence take so long to flag. They say it took 20 seconds to create all of that distress and havoc. We are pretty sure if a car was driving on a pavement in Tottenham or Lewisham, police would be all over it. Acting so fast before they even know what has occurred. Why in Westminister was this allowed to continue and become the disaster it was? Now you will increase the security in your estate whilst we are left unsafe if we reside outside the W1 postcode.

– Communities we urge you to stay united. Do not conform to racism or any hate crime. It is very easy to turn against each other due to race, class or nationality. Do not rise to this. We need to stick together. We also urge you to watch your surroundings. Keep your eyes open and think fast. It is a dangerous and volatile city we are living in. Communities and areas still support decisions not to report crime. They will not report incidents that happen on their doorsteps. This has to stop, let the police know if you deem activity to be dangerous or suspicious. You could save lives.

– One of our team believe that from writing such things as what we have we will be watched by the government. 1984 by George Orwell. So if you do read this, we are a team of bloggers merely writing a few views that have come up in discussions today. We support our country and believe that these attacks are dreadful. We appreciate our security, police force, system, shared values and way of life in the UK. We just wished that our world had more transparency and peace.

Bootea 28 Day Teatox – 7 Days In

You can buy alternative Bootea Teatox’s such as 14 days and a version that is Senna Free (No laxative Effects). I have opted to take the one with Senna Leaves included. This tea comes in two packets; one is daytime tea and the other is bedtime tea. Daytime tea you drink every morning and you alternate days when drinking the bedtime tea.

 

Day 1: Tea in the Morning & Tea at Night

The first day of taking it I became aware of the taste. I couldn’t grasp the taste on my palette as such I had to down the drink back. Knock it back as they say. I didn’t feel any effects this day.

Day 2: Tea in the Morning

8 hours after taking last nights evening tea it is said that the laxative kicks in. Well it did and with me I believed that it had the correct effect on my body. Please I warn you to prepare yourself. On the day after taking your evening tea be prepared you may need to use the lavatory. This day 2 was drastic, I literally cleared out my system. It was sporadic as such I was a little disturbed by it. After half an hour my bowels eased and I felt lighter. I felt cleansed, just like the tea says.

Day 3-7

After Day 2 I was aware of what to expect and on day 4 I prepared for another relationship with my toilet. I was pleasantly surprised when I did not cleanse out as I did on day 2. It felt as if I was clearing out excess waste in my system.

The taste of the tea has settled into my palette. I find that if the drink is brewed for too long/left cold this is when you will find the taste is very prominent. Bootea suggest 3 mins to brew.

I have not seen dramatic effects to this tea. There is no amazing butt lift or tummy tuck results yet. However I feel very light on my feet. My stomach feels less weighty and I feel as if my digestive systems is flowing better. I feel very clean and many have mentioned I have a radiance in my skin.

I am not a gymoholic or a health bunny; I am eating as I usually did. I believe that if you teamed this up with nutrition and exercise you could feel even better than I do. I purely took this Teatox as a team challenge. I am happy I have. After Day 28 I will upload my results.

10 Things That F**K Us Off >>> Society is messier than it has to be and we help to play a part in F**cking it up!

SATURDAY S**T LIST

10 Things That F**K Us Off

  1. Watching what other people have. Who cares if she has brought a Gucci Bag and who cares if he has a Rolex? Did these people have the cash to buy or did they buy it on credit? If they have brought it on an overdraft then more fool them. So, you sit watching their luxe pictures in resentment that your life is less than theirs. When actually that person is in debt for that lifestyle or they are even borrowing someone else’s stuff just to take pictures. As soon as people can get stuff is as soon as stuff can leave them. Why watch others? The car is most probably on finance or a rental. The house is most probably brought with illegal money and will be repossessed when they are 50. The perfect husband is most probably cheating on every work night out. Don’t watch others, watch yourself and work on getting what you want.
  2. You have a Best Friend who is very active on Social Channels. You talk to them every week to make sure they are doing well. Every week you see their posts and ‘Like’ them. Yet this friend seems to ignore your posts. It seems there is a pattern in their behaviour. They either don’t like anything; why is this? Is it because deep down they are unhappy with what they see? Or is it because you are not doing things with them? When they suddenly creep onto your page. They either give you one dead like; you’ve posted 30 pictures since they have last been on, but you get one ‘Like’. Or do they blast your whole feed so all your friends/followers pay attention to them? Whatever it is we suggest you watch out for a friend like this. If they really had an interest in you they would support what you do. Instead if you feel there is a distance on Social Media; the likelihood is that this distance is something to maintain in real life.
  3. Single people and they way they operate on their channels. For example if you have known a person for years would you then try it on with them? If yes, the question we ask is why didn’t you try it before? Answer is, they most probably didn’t notice you and now they have grown older and uglier they now want to know. It is not cool to contact people through messenger or DMs and expect them to respond. Don’t expect nothing and then you will not be disappointed. Try to be a real person rather than an internet creep. We prefer honesty and a conversation; not a repetitive message telling us how good-looking we are.
  4. You have worked with someone for a number of years. This person leaves and you remain in the business. All that usual talk of keeping in touch; but do you? You may be that person that tries to interact with old work colleagues. Do they respond? If Yes, well they took to you at work or are you someone they can use later on in life. If No, why is this? Well, we cannot answer this; yet we do know that is usually to do with them. If you left without any dramas then what is stopping them? Them! They are stopping themselves. These ‘nice’ work colleagues will now show their true colours. They had no interest in you when you worked there and this is shown by their lack of interest after you have left. Bet you £1 that they will watch all your live videos and won’t even know you know that they have seen it. Laugh at them until they find out. Never rise to their stupidity. Being nice costs nothing, and especially being nice to those who have faced the same challenges as you in work.
  5. The Police. Thanks for some of your protection. Yet sometimes we have to say a BIG thanks for nothing or thanks for creating more problems. Please, Police we beg you to work with us and not against us. In our country we are having a lot more altercations. If we approach you as a victim we are also looked at as the perpetrator. How can people who are rapists and kiddy-fiddlers be allowed to leave prison? How can you take the word of a convict over a law-abiding citizen? How can you comment at the scene of a crime, after you turn up following the incident? We need you to belive in us as citizens. Don’t throw your weight around but communicate with us as you would your son/daughter. Let us look up to you and be proud of our security. It doesn’t have to be this way.
  6. Cocaine Addicts portraying themselves as Big Wigs. You are NOT a big wig if you are addicted to Coke. You are a fool. You sniff bleach and anything that your dealer laces it with. The worst part of this drug is that you cannot see what it is doing to the people around you. Screw what it does to you, after all surely you have been told about the effects; if not Talk To Frank. We find that Coke Addicts are quick to become aggressive if you suggest that the drug is bad for them. They will find every excuse as to why they take it and why it is a part of their lives. Either way we don’t care what the reasons are; but we do know that this drug is messing with a lot of people’s lives.
  7. Addicted to Weed with no focus. We understand that weed is a tree, a plant, natural and whatever way that you want to look at the Drug. (MAMBA/SPICE IS NOT WEED). The use of weed creates a new energy in you as a person, and we find many become lethargic or at a loss with life. If you are a functioning weed head then we salute you. People have their vices and if you can function on this drug then we cannot class you in this. However if you literally load ounces and sit every night or weekend in a smoke sesh then we feel you should focus. Why sit in a room full of smokers playing computer games? Why not smoke a big fat J and read a book; basically, become enlightened with the use of weed.
  8. COKE ADDICTS: WEED IS NOT AS BAD AS WHAT YOU TAKE. STOP BAD MOUTHING IT WHEN YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING BETTER.
  9. Racist people who date people of Race. Please, are you completely confused? One of our team dated a guy who couldn’t stand her black background. Anything ethnic was ridiculed by him, yet he wanted to get all up in her black *****. She stated that when they dated it was as if she was in the film ‘Roots’. Her description of sex with him was compared to slavery sexual relations. His levels of respect for her was lacking as he didn’t want to accept her as who she was. The worst aspect of this trait is that if you get with someone of race and then cheat on them with someone lighter. An example you are a white man and you are dating a black girl; yet you are cheating on her with a mixed race girl or a white girl. This is an innate problem with this man; his genetic memory is built from slavery. Why would he want to cheat with a lighter female if his taste is Black women? We say she is convenient for his use; maybe it make him seem multicultural when really he has no respect for race/ethnicity.
  10. Drivers that cannot drive, RETAKE YOUR TEST OR GET OFF THE ROAD! Please, this is becoming a dangerous past time now. If you cannot drive then do not get in the car. If a more experienced driver than yourself is telling you to do something, then listen. New drivers are more likely to have an accident, they are also more likely to panic and drive off from the scene of a crash. Older, experienced drivers are more likely to drive as if they own the road and crash due to complacency. Whatever your driver status is, you should know how capable you are with driving. If you are facing driver challenges there is no shame in refreshing your skills.

BURGER & LOBSTER REVIEW – But did you watch our Live Instagram Story or our YouTube Channel? Keep up to date

Think First Thursdays

 

Thursday 23rd Feb Universal Levels did not post an article. Instead we went LIVE on Instagram. We kept popping up and as such some of our followers we able to see us LIVE.

In regards to giving you some content; Recently we visited two locations for Burger & Lobster. Burger & Lobster is a chain food restaurant which opened in 2011. Literally all you will be eating is either a Burger or a Lobster; you can have both. We visted these restaurants for a team members birthday and for a quick-lunch. We visted their restaurant at Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge and Canary Wharf. Both resturants we found to be on par with each other. Good Choice!

Burger & Lobster Hints & Tips

  • Ask for the table of your choice. This restaurant has a quick turnover as such if you want a table for a special occasion we suggest booking first. Also don’t be afraid to tell the waiter where you want to sit.
  • If you don’t understand the concept of the restaurant then speak to your host. They are more than willing to assist. Even one staff member offered to aid us break our lobster.
  • Ask for your meal how you want it to be cooked. The staff will make a meal tailored to what you want. In addition all of our food changes were correct and we were highly satisfied.
  • The food comes in weights, if you are unsure ask what the meal is. Our tip is: the more weight in the food, the bigger the meal. It is possible for you to buy one larger sized portion and share it. Speak to a host to work out what is best for your party and they will help you out.
  • Take advantage of their Cocktail List. We throughly enjoyed our drinks and they complimented our meal. The range of drinks on their list is suitable. It accommodates for all drinkers, wether it be a drivers beverage or if you want to have a few tipples.
  • You can take a doggy bag home. We recommend doing so as the food still tastes great when you get it home. Even take it home for the pets. At the end of the day wasting food is not good, but to waste quality food is worse. It is better to take it with you incase you get peckish later on.
  • The price isn’t cheap but for what you receive it is worth it. We recommend at least £25-£30 per head. This gives you some room for extras and you possibly will be left with change.

We hope you enjoyed reading our article. Remember to keep looking out for our LIVE Videos and also keep watching our YouTube Channel.

Need a pair of Sunglasses? Read our blog & enjoy shopping >>> Don’t Miss Out >>> Ray Bans, Tiffany and more

Merchant Mondays

Universal Levels can see the sun beaming across our city. We are soon approaching the season of nudity, beer and park life. So with this we need to be equipped with a great pair of Shades. Everybody needs a pair of Sunglasses and be sure to check for the CE Mark; this shows that the glasses are UV protected. Be aware that sunglasses brought from Primark can be as good as designers; so we want you to know that the priciest doesn’t mean that they are any different from the cheapies. Please note that sunglasses purchased abroad may not have a CE Mark, as such the likelihood is these glasses will not be UV Protected. We advise buying the correct protection as sunlight exposure to your eyes is very harmful.

A little change for this week! No doubt you are full & fat from Valentines so no food reviews today. Instead read our Top Seven Customer Musts…. (Although you might be hated by the owner)

Think First Thursdays

This week Universal Levels have tailored our content for Think First Thursdays. This week we have been to so many dining/drinking spots with our partners and family. Because or the service we received over this Valentines Period we feel that our Top Seven is necessary.

Eating Out or Drinking The Night Away?

TOP SEVEN SATISFIED CUSTOMER MUSTS

  1. Service Charge. We are not paying it unless we want to. We will dictate to you what we feel the service is. Unless we are told on arrival or the menu is swarmed with service charge reminders; we are not paying. If you think that we are paying extra for a lazy waiter or poor food then think again. You may encounter problems at the venue when you request to take it off. Stick to your guns and explain the reasons why you refuse to pay it. We would rather tip our servers than tip the venue, at least this way these runners may feel job satisfaction. Thus delivering every service with the aim of getting a tip.
  2. If we want to change the menu, we will change the menu. If you cannot let us change it then we will leave. We will not sit in a restaurant that cannot change their food. It makes us question whether their food is fresh or even cooked properly. Your venue becomes a case for speculation as ALL venues should be able to cater to their customers needs. If we want no Mushrooms in our Spag Bowl then give us no Mushrooms. Do not tell us you cannot do this as we will leave.
  3. Try the Wine before you buy. If they cannot let you try it we suggest you do not buy their overpriced wine. Many restaurants choose a house bottle that tastes like vinegar. This toxic wine at approx. £8 a glass dampens the mood if given before a meal. Why drink chemical wine when you want a smooth quality Merlot? Do not do it! Request a sample of their wines and choose what you like. If the venue doesn’t accommodate then opt for the cheapest drink on the menu. The gross profit these places are getting from some of their wines is ridiculous. So the least they can do is offer you a teaspoon of wine to taste in the hope you will neck the whole bottle.
  4. Visit the toilets before placing your food order. If the venue cannot keep this area clean then you should think about the cleanliness throughout their establishment. Tell the restaurant about their dirty toilets; do they act on it or do they delay? Lets say they delay activating hygiene requests, then would they do the same with your food? When your cooked burger is dropped on the kitchen floor will the chef cook you a new one or serve you the same grime burger?
  5. As a host keep yourself clean. If you see your host and feel their hygiene is a problem then we suggest approaching the manager. We will change our server if we feel it is needed. Last week one waiter wiped his nose with the back of his hand and then came straight to us with our food. We refused to eat the food, discussed what had occurred with a manager and left the venue. We dread to think if he washed his hands after his toilet break. Another lady waitress was twirling her hair over the salad bar; by the time we were finished with the venue every salad bowl was changed. If you are clean and tidy why would you eat from dirty people? You wouldn’t.
  6. Request where you want to sit. We hate being sat in an area for the benefit of a restaurant. Do not place us at the window when you are empty; we are not here to advertise your food. Do not tell us we are sitting in an area with no ambience. Do not tell us that our romantic meal will take place on the table next to three children. We  will choose where we sit and if your reason is valid as to why we cannot sit there, we will accept this. Yet if you are fobbing us off and refuse to seat us where we want then we will leave. You have the right to enjoy your meal to the fullest and feel satisfied with every aspect of your visit.
  7. Anything you receive that does not taste right, is undercooked, is not what you asked for, etc, etc. Then speak up. If you do not tell the management or server then you must have money to waste. Why burn currency on a meal that is not want you wanted? If we ask for a rare steak and you send it well done, then you will get that steak back. We heavyily suggest you deploy manners as your food will be prepared again by the staff. So if you talk to them disrespectfully then expect a case of food-borne illness the next morning. We cannot see what happens in a kitchen, we trust them to feed us; yet I am not trusting a chef I just annoyed to feed me a meal like its my last.

 

Universal Levels have stopped our rant at seven key points. However we feel in the hospitality sector you could write a much longer list. It is apparent from our team discussions 50% of us were not fully satisfied with our Valentines venues. We want you to remember that you have a voice. The money you are spending is YOURS and not the restaurants until the bill arrives. You cannot leave without paying as that is a crime; however we happily accept free drinks, a reduction on our bill or even a voucher. Take charge of your satisfaction.

A Cinema Lightbox can make your wallet light. Read our comparison and Light Up Your Life without spending a fortune…

Merchant Monday’s

Recently Universal Levels needed to buy a wedding gift for a team member. By mistake two of our colleagues brought two different Lightboxes. One purchased online and the other had popped to their local bargain store. For our Merchant Monday’s article we felt is was necessary to compare both Lightboxes. One was brought from B&M for £7.99 and the other was brought from Tesco Direct for £24.99. Since buying the Tesco Lightbox has since gone out of stock. However our point for this blog is to show that the most expensive may not be the best.

Tesco B&M
Item Cinema Lightbox DIY Message Lightbox
Product Code 185-0008 315954
Price £24.99 £7.99
Size A4 A4
In Stock No Check in Store
Number of Letters 85 69
Symbols Inc Yes No
Batteries Yes 6 AA Yes 6 AA
Adapter No Yes – Buy Seperatly
Wall Hanging Yes Yes
Pros Better Packaging Thicker Plastic Letters
Different Light Stronger Design
 Letters Sit flush, and cannot be noticed when the light is on Easier to set up – no screwdriver is needed
 A little bigger (0.03cm) Able to use batteries or an adapter
Cons Lightbox does not have a smooth finish and you can pull it apart Less letters and does not come with symbols
No adapter point Packaging isnt as appealing
Need a screwdriver to open battery compartment
Thinner Plastic Letters (Quite Flimsy)image31504

 

Universal Levels believe that the £7.99 Lightbox from B&M is one of the best bargains. It is a large A4 size and a better quality in comparison to an expensive model; B&M your product is our favorite. We are quite upset with our Tesco buy; yes it may look sleeker in design however it isn’t. We feel that if you want the additional symbols you should buy the B&M Lightbox and head to Ebay to buy extra letters. You can get symbols, gold letters, caligraphy and many more options to jazz up your Lightbox. As such spend £7.99 and another £10 on a range of letters/symbols; you will have yourself a unique and decent product for nearly half the price. Have a look at our comparison pictures, we moved the Heart from the £24.99 lightbox to our £7.99 box; bet you cannot see the difference.

LEFT IS FROM TESCO * RIGHT IS FROM B&M

 

When it is a craze or a phase it does not always pay to buy the highest price tag. These fad products are made for the increase in demand. So manufacturers can get away with creating a shoddy item, putting it in pretty packaging and we will buy it for 50% more. With this craze we want you to be quid’s up.

Have fun creating slogans on your new Lightbox. We purchased another one for the office and every morning we change the words. Today’s said “Aim & Goal” and tomorrows might be “Thrifty & Spend Less”.
