      Advantages

      • "They feel nice and comfortable to wear"

      Disadvantages

      • "The fabric is bobbled when they are washed a few times"

      George slogan briefs

      WHAT ARE THEY?

      These are briefs that are made by Asda. There are always alot of different slogans available but I do not care what the briefs say on the front or back and buy them only because they are comfortable and good quality.

      THE DESIGN

      These briefs are low rise but they cover every part of my body that I would like to be covered. The briefs are available in all different colours and alot of them have small pictures and slogans on. The slogan that is on the briefs I am wearing today says Get The Summer Started but I think it is no point to have a slogan on my briefs where no one can see it.

      WHAT I THINK

      The slogan briefs that you can buy from Asda are very cheap and cost only about £2 or £2.50 for each pair. They are high quality for that low price and they fit me very good in the size that I always buy my briefs in.

      They are made of cotton so they make me feel fresh and clean always. They fit good but when I have worn them and washed them a few times they get lots of bobbles on the fabric, that does not effect how comfortable they are to wear but they look old and then I am ashamed to hang them on the washing line to dry.

      I would recommend these briefs to wear on a everyday basis but they are very basic and I would not wear them if I was in the mood to wear briefs that are more feminine. I feel quite childish when I wear these but they are comfortable and they keep me feeling fresh for all the day so for the low price I will carry on buying them.

      Advantages

      • "The tops fit good"
      • "There are alot of colours available"

      Disadvantages

      • "They go baggy when they have been washed many times"

      George vest tops

      WHAT IS IT?

      This is a vest top that is made by George at Asda. They are available every year in all different colours and are available through the winter also.

      WHAT I THINK

      I have bought many of these vest tops because they are very cheap and I do not like to spend a lot of money on basic items like this. The ones I have got now are white, yellow and red but I have had other colours also and they are all very nice.

      They fit good and these vest tops stretch so that you can wear them tight fitting or buy them when they are a bit looser so that the tops do not cling to your body so much.

      I like the way the neck is scooped because that keeps me cool in the summer even though we have not have very much summer in England this year. The vest tops can go a bit baggy when they have been washed many times but they are so cheap that I do not care about that and these still last for long.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      These vest tops cost about £4 and I think that is value because there are very many colours available so that I can buy several of them and match them with my clothes as good as possible. I do not care about them being baggy because that price is still a lot cheaper than other vest tops so I do not mind if I have to replace these more often than usual.

      Fresh and funny horror movie

      The Cabin in the Woods was written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard and was directed by Drew Goddard and produced by Joss Whedon. I was excited to see it because I'm a bit of a Joss Whedon fan, having enjoyed Buffy, Angel and most of all Dollhouse.

      I wasn't disappointed with The Cabin in the Woods, it retains Whedon's clever teen dialogue and was an original take on the horror/ slasher genre - no easy task.

      The action takes place in a cabin where a group of college students are holidaying. They are unknowingly being watched and manipulated by a group of lab technicians in a high tech bunker who are evidently controlling an annual ritual to appease some unspecified higher power. This seems to involve creatively sacrificing some teenagers around the world. The stakes are high as we hear that other nations have failed in this year's task.

      The teens play a part in their own demise, their actions can trigger different monsters and we see the workers at the facility taking bets on which monster it will be this year.

      This is all done with a lot of dark humour which I really enjoyed. The cast are solid, with stand out performances by Fran Kanz who plays the intelligent consipracy-theorist stoner Marty and by Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins who are the duo we follow at the facility. This pair have some very funny scenes.

      The Cabin in the Woods was released in 2012 and received a positive reaction from critics.

      Refreshing and Soothing Moisturising Lotion In A Spray Can!

      I bought this because I like to try new beauty products and I thought this sounded like an interesting concept. It's basically body moisturiser in a spray can! There are a few varieties of this and I have the 'Cocoa Radiant' version.

      The product comes as a large 190ml sized can. It's a heavy metal cannister so not perfect for travelling but it's fine for keeping at home. It is fitted with a large press down button on the top of the can and this dispenses a spray jet of lotion onto your skin. It is advised that you hold the can four inches away and then spray but however you use this you still have to rub in the moisturiser, although the thin consistency of the lotion means it's more quickly absorbed than other moisturising creams. I do find the jet spray a little too direct and it sprays the cream into a line rather than dispersing it as a mist.

      The brand say this cream "leaves skin soft" and claim that it has a "non sticky or greasy" formula. I'd agree with all of these claims. The moisturiser is definitely a lighter lotion and probably best used in the summer but it's still softening and it also feels cooling, refreshing and soothing. It's non sticky or clammy and it absorbs well into the skin without leaving an oily layer on the surface.

      The 'cocoa vibrant' version of this product has a really deliciously sweet fragrance that is just like chocolate. It's a feminine scent so this is probably a product best suited to ladies. The fragrance is lasting on the skin which is lovely.

      I really like this Spray and Go moisturiser although I do think it could be a tad more nourishing and richer in texture. However, it is a pleasant experience to use and it allows you to cover your body with lotion quickly and effortlessly. I would buy this product again. It's available at stores such as Boots and Superdrug and costs around £2.49 per can.

      Well Worth Researching to Get a Long Weekend Here.

      I visited Venice, in Italy, for three nights a few years ago. As many will know, this small island city can only be explored by boat or foot bridge. It is a labyrinth of alleyways and canals, and half the fun is getting a bit lost. The city is famous for the gondola rides, but they are extremely expensive, so we didn't do this. I preferred to travel by Vaporetto (a water-bus/ferry - much like a normal bus, but actually a boat).

      The main part is St Mark's Square which is the place to go to get to the cathedral (Basilica Di San Marco), the tower (Campanile) and the Doge's palace (Palazzo Ducale). This square is too expensive to eat and drink in and is always thronged with tourists. I would advise getting here early in order to see these sights, especially in the summer months. Then walking back out a few streets for lunch/drinks.

      There are also plenty of art galleries and small museums in the city. I quite enjoyed walking around the city on foot and seeing what I discovered, I also enjoyed taking the water-bus up the Grand Canal and along other routes and looking at the buildings. You can also visit the other islands such as Murano where they make the famous coloured glass, Burano where they make lace and San Michele, where the cemetery is.

      If you are flexible you can stay on the main island for a reasonable price - some hotels offered shared facilities or no air-conditioning in some rooms. We got one with air-con and a shower room though, but such hotels tend to offer better rates overall, so don't ignore low star ratings.

      Nice Smell, But Expensive

      I got this shower gel a few years ago as part of a set with some Jimmy Choo perfume and I think it is quite nice actually. It is not something that I have rushed out to buy again, but I think that this is mainly due to the price of it - it is one thing getting it as a gift, but it is another thing entirely to fork out that kind of money on a shower gel when you can get perfectly nice ones from all of the supermarkets for much, much less. Having said that, it is still nice.

      It retails at about £20, although it does seem to be quite difficult to get hold of. Whether they still make it or not, I'm not sure, but it can be found in some places if you care to google it and it is around the £20 mark as I say, which I personally think is on the expensive side and is not good value for money.

      It smells really nice. it smells a lot like the Jimmy Choo original perfume, on which it is based, which is good. Although this might sound like an obvious thing to say, but I have had a lot of these lotions and potions that smell nothing like their source. This is a good representation. It smells light and fresh. It's a bit flowery, but not overly so and it a good all round scent really, I think most people would like it because it isn't overpowering. The smell also lasts quite well which is nice. I often get a whiff of it even a few hours after I have used it in the shower.

      It is a nice consistency and makes a nice lather which means it feels really luxurious which I suppose goes some way to justify the price tag.

      Overall I like it and would recommend it if you are planning on a treat for yourself.

      Nice but overpriced bib

      I bought one of these sleeved bibs for my Daughter when she was approaching six months and I was starting to think about offering her solid foods. I knew it was going to be a particularly messy process as I was skipping the spoon feeding of pureed foods and was planning on letting her get stuck in to baby led weaning. This meant she would be given a variety of food that she could pick up, mash up, taste if she wanted and generally play with and explore a range of different foods.

      In my excitement I bought this massively overpriced bib - what was I thinking? I hadn't yet discovered the sleeved bibs available at the pound shop that would become my go to shop for bibs in future. Jojo Maman Bebe is a relatively expensive high street store but I do admit that their products are very pretty, and this bib was no exception. It was a soft plastic in yellow with a print of little pink birds. The sleeves had elasticated wrists and the neck fastens with velcro. There is a plastic pocket on the front of the bib to catch spills.

      Apart from looking pretty, I didn't actually rate this bib that much. Poundland bibs don't have elasticated wrists but food and drink never seemed to go up my daughter's sleeves anyway. Plastic is wipe clean, but the towelling bibs are better for mopping up, in my experience. Also my daughter found it more uncomfortable than other bibs. Maybe it would be worth having one of these in your collection if you are planning to go to a posh function where you need to feed your six month old and you know it's going to get messy.

      Sleep Tight - A Movie on BBC2 in Scotland

      So Sleep Tight, a psycho horror film from director Jaume Balagueró, he of the quite brilliant ‘Rec’ 1 & 2. He is Spanish horror right now and the new Guillermo Del Torro in all but name, Sleep Tight a rapid remake of the short film El Propietario (2008).



      Rec was great as it was an unexpected hit and played on post 911 fears of the enemy within through containment in Spain’s biggest city. All this biblical horror is going on in this apartment block with people walking down the side walk none the wiser. That claustrophobic psychological drama is the key to this films appeal.











      ===Plot===



      Cesar (Luis Tosar) is the lugubrious suicidal concierge of an up market and traditional apartment block in the center of Madrid. He spends his days tending to whining guests and by night plotting to break their spirit and make them miserable. He is forty something and bald and the ladies have stopped looking and so must find other ways to amuse himself. He also has an ailing mom (Margarita Rosed) to drag him down, now on her last legs in hospital, reciting his evil deeds at her bedside, distressing her some more.

      His next target in the block is the vivacious and attractive Clara (Marta Etura), who he secretly pines for, but would settle for her being miserable if he cant win her affections. Cesar has a key to every room and so has the unseen power to achieve his evil goals. The plan is to mess up Clara’s routine by drugging her at night and then messing with things in her apartment, things to make her sick and on edge. He knows her beauty is everything to her and so the one thing she can’t bare to lose. But a little girl (Iris Almeida) in the block is on to Caesars’ antics and demanding money and treats from him to keep quiet.

      Clara is a lot tougher than the other residents and determined to be happy, regardless of her failing heath. Cesar steps up his game to break her spirit. He has also been sending anonymous love letters and texts to Clara and the police are closing in. They know it’s someone local. Then her handsome boyfriend Marcos (Alberto San Juan) visits and her health looks up again. He intends to take her away for a few days and so a spanner in Cesar’s plan. Cesar now has to figure out how to get the cops off his back and keep his job after a resident tries to get him sacked for his rudeness. Cesar has worked at many hotels and apartment blocks where bad things have happened.





      ===Results===



      Even though the central character is somewhat unshaped, this film is a thorough creep-out, playing on our vulnerabilities while making the villain the most sympathetic person on-screen. It prays on that fear that our routine is so fragile and we relay on how we look and feel about ourselves to get through the day. If someone says a nasty comment about how we look and feel it can set you back. The idea is that you are not rude to people so they are not rude to you. There are happy attractive people and sad plain people out there. You all know those people. One lot needs to bring the other lot down to their melancholy.



      The acting is crafted on that passionate and vivacious way Spanish film is and Caesar a dark and malicious character. Bringing down his middle-class guests to improve his day maybe more common than we think in the catering world.

This can be easily opened even with wet hands, which I ever very suit you. I have otherwise not so with closures. But now to the fragrance. That's just fantastic. It smells fresh and fruity and even something for blueberry. Of course, has also been diligent showered with it, because in blueberry, everything stays others are only once. The shower gel is more viscous and you have been around a little lather with water before you can wash the body with it. If you give a little of it on his hand, and mixed it with a little water froths it on the same level and immediately smells the entire bathroom really nice fruity. With water the aroma is equal to even more intense. The shower gel spreads easily on the skin and your whole body feels refreshed after showering.

      This day cream is a very rich cream and the feeling one has already during application. The cream is pure white, slightly thick and chewy, but very pleasant when applied to the skin. It smells very discreet, but I can not accurately describe the scent. He is slightly floral, but pleasant. My skin feels after applying cream to very soft and smooth. The cream needs briefly until absorbed and has even longer feel that the skin is moisturised and protected. When applying moisturizer, I notice the rather something more solid consistency. This need rather more cream than with very soft, creamy creams. She pulls very a reasonably quickly and leaves on the skin a super neat impression. The name rich cream has been awarded to law. The cream nourishes my face. For me personally, the cream should be a little more moisture conditioning, but each skin is different.

      DIESEL Only The Brave Eau de Toilette

      The DIESEL Only The Brave Eau de Toilette is available from GBP 38.00.

      The Eau de Toilette is described as follows. "Diesel Only the Brave Eau de Toilette. A fragrance that leaves the mark of a distinctive attitude. An explosive cocktail that bears witness to a man with an identity as strong as it is present, almost magnetic. A fresh and leathery fragrance with notes of citrus, amber and leather."

      After the first application I was not really excited because while the eau de toilette seemed quite fresh, but had an oriental touch in itself, not necessarily suits me. But that soon changed, because wood and leather flavors soon gained the upper hand, to be joined by fruity-floral elements, which perfectly harmonize with each other, leaving a stunning overall impression. Yes, compare with other scents can this Eau de Toilette hardly. I contend that it is suitable for at least all men - regardless of age, where everyone has to decide for themselves which period includes this term. In addition, the Eau de Toilette in my opinion is also portable on any occasion: I would put it in the office as well as an evening invitation without hesitation, because the smell has character, but affects its fresh note due at the same time not too heavy and not at all intrusive. What surprised me the durability of the fragrance, because I was able to sniff out that evening, I had applied in the morning - that's really a very positive display.

      Crystal Clear Display!

      When I purchased an HP desktop computer I received one of these HP 2009v monitors as part of the deal. My monitor worked fine for almost a year and then suddenly went dead. Since I was within the guarantee period I was able to get a replacement of the same model. I can only assume that I got a faulty monitor since the one I've had since has worked perfectly!

      This is a 20 inch wide computer screen monitor. It looks incredibly big and is perfect for things like watching TV/movies or for gaming. It's size is also really useful if you need to see the display in large because of bad eyesight. I'm more than happy with the size of the screen.

      The monitor is LCD or liquid crystal display and has a "thin film transistor". The quality of the display is excellent. The brightness/contrast of the display is adjustable via several dials which are located at the bottom right of the model, close to the on/off button. The adjustments are easy to undertake. Colours are always bold and bright and text is crystal clear. I am particularly impressed by visual media on this monitor. I use my desktop computer to stream television and films all the time rather than my laptops as the monitor display is much better than my laptops.

      The monitor comes boxed with a heavy L-shaped stand which you must attach to the monitor yourself. This is a fairly simple construction. The monitor has a VGA connector and a power cord connector as well as a port for connecting speakers. It's a reasonably slimline model and doesn't take up much space on the top of my desk.

      This model was released in 2009 so is unlikely to be widely available but I would jump at the chance of purchasing this if it was available as a second hand model because the quality is incredibly good. I have had to deduct a star from the overall rating though because of the failure of my first 2009v monitor.

      A Lovely Flowering Plant For Pots Or Borders...

      I purchased one of these Impatiens a few days ago as I wanted a few colourful flowering plants to fill in some spots in my garden where other flowers have died off. I ended up planting this in a decorative wheelbarrow shaped planter and it looks very pretty. They are an ideal plant to put in pots on your patio or straight into your border.

      The plant has stunning dark and glossy leaves which have a stark and pointed shape. The leaves have red spines and red undersides as well as having unusual spikes along the edges of the leaves. Despite the leaves looking like shark's teeth the spikes aren't at all troublesome and do not prick you during the planting stage or if you brush up against the leaves. The leaves are rather abundant on the plant, being as much a feature of it's beauty as the flowers.

      The flowers on my Impatiens are a delicate pink/white shade. I believe you can get different colours of this plant. My flowers aren't a uniform colour but look rather like they have been painted by a watercolour artist. They are extremely pretty and sweet. They have slender red veined stems and they tend to poke up through the thick leaves. The petals on the flowers look quite flimsy, almost like a floppy hat. They are an interesting and beautiful feature of any garden.

      I haven't noticed these being particularly attractive to pollinating insects but they do look very striking and colourful as well as creating a lovely shape. As mentioned, these look lovely enough to be able to be featured on their own in a patio pot but look just as lovely nestled with other plants in a border.

      I have mine planted in full sun which it is seeming to cope well with with regular watering. I would recommend this to any gardener who likes pretty flowering plants.

      Advantages

      • "Can remove dandruff if used correctly"

      Disadvantages

      • "Is very harsh on the hair"

      Cleans and destroys

      I never fail to be surprised by the amount of people who love Head & Shoulders because I personally consider it to be one of the most harsh shampoos available to the point that I will no longer use it in spite of my husband keeping a bottle in the bathroom.

      It smells fresh and clean, lathers up to an almost luxury level and can help fight the problem of dandruff. I am of the opinion it is harsh enough to burn off dandruff and disguise that with claims of medicated shampoo.

      It makes my hair very dry and wiry, quite unlike the usual texture of my very normal hair. It does not relieve the itching of my scalp when I am suffering a flare up and my hair and scalp are left with a very unhealthy feel after even a short period of use.

      My hair is harder to tame and style after washing when I've used Head & Shoulders than when I use other shampoos.

      I have always liked the aroma of Head & Shoulders Classic Clean, it's comforting but is that that always leads me to believe it is going to be a gentle option when in reality it is more harsh than even the cheapest shampoo I have used.

      Head & Shoulders provides a good lasting clean so if it suits your hair better it could be an option. The cost has reduced over time as a 250ml bottle is now priced at £2.99 where I remember a higher cost when I used to buy it regularly.
