      A Dreamy Bath

      I recently bought this Radox Eastern Spirit because it jumped out at me from the supermarket shelf. The colour of the bath foam is a delicious pinky-peach and the lotus and pagoda picture on the front of the bottle is dreamy and beautiful. The product comes in a large 500ml sized recyclable transparent plastic bottle. This is fitted with a screw off top which is easy to open. The bottle has information labels on the front and back. On the front it actually says this is a Limited Edition version and describes the product as a "bath soak...with oriental lotus flower and orange blossom".
      The label on the back states that the brand use nature as an inspiration to create their exotic bath soak blends. Using "natural" ingredients the brand have created a product they say will leave you "uplifted". Full ingredients and brand contact information are also printed on the label.
      To use this product you must pour it under running water. I've found that the smallest dollop of this works well, creating a blanket of foam and releasing a beautiful scent. The fragrance is enchanting and contains the sharp zest of orange along with the dewy, delicate nectar of the lotus flower. It's a fragrance that makes me feel happy and relaxed. I really want to dive into the bath and close my eyes for a while! The fragrance is very powerful and yet it doesn't overwhelm the senses, it seems to seduce them!
      This product creates bubbles or foam and the amount created depends on how much of the liquid you add to the water. I like just a little bit and I'm happy with the silky soft bubbles that come out of just one dollop of liquid. It makes the water feel smooth and luxurious. I haven't noticed that this product has any other benefits such as skin softening but the fragrance does stay on the skin after drying.
      I would definitely buy this again as it allows me to enjoy bathing and gives me the opportunity to relax and indulge in my senses. It's such a lovely fragrance, although possibly only suited to female consumers. I would recommend to friends and family.

      Advantages

      • Everything!

      Disadvantages

      • None!

      This shines like a diamond above alot of the rest!

      With washing every day I am always on the look out for reasonably priced fabric softeners/conditioners to put in with my washing. My favoured brand is Lenor but saying that I only purchase it when there is a good deal or offer on it so if there isn't I will deviate after sniffing first at various other offerings in the store I am in!

      At the time that I remembered I was running out of the fabric softener I was using I was in Tesco and spotted this product in various sized bottles and scents and chose to get this one and another (Golden Topaz) as usually they cost £2.00 each however they were on offer at the time I bought them at 2 bottles for £3.00 which I though was great value cos each bottle I bought contained a whopping 42 washes (so that is 84 washes for £3.00...bargain!).

      The Bottle:

      The bottle this comes in is a nice bright pink colour with a matching screw on/off cap to the top of which doubles up as a measurer. On the front and on the back of the bottle we are clearly told what it is and who it is by and that it has 'Scent release luxurious 2 week freshness' and that as I have mentioned already my bottle contains 42 washes then other information on the sides of the bottle includes being told a bit about the product and being told how to use it , the ingredients are listed, the size is stated (in my case you get 1.47 Litres) and contact details for Tesco are clearly given. Nice looking bottle and easy to use it is.

      The Liquid:

      Light pink and floral in its scent it is really, really nice. Although floral it isn't sickly or cloying and all you do is measure out the amount you need into the cap provided to which the instructions about how much you need are given clearly on the bottle and I basically use one cap per full load of washing.

      This makes my home smell lovely in use and when I get my washing out it smells wonderful, fresh and clean and above all feels soft and conditioned.

      Although once dried the fragrance does tame down somewhat (making the washing then smell quite unisex) it does still smell wonderful and makes my ironing easier (yes I iron everything!) and even though I store things like bedding and towels for longer than a couple of weeks I can still detect this lovely fragrance on my fabrics.

      All in all I think this is a lovely, high quality fabric conditioner and one that I shall certainly purchase time and time again in the future!

      Only available from Tesco, a bottle the size I am reviewing cost £2.00 at the moment.

      • "Last for a long time for cheap money "

      I like these slippers very much

      WHAT ARE THEY?

      Slippers that you buy from Asda. They have been sold for many years in leopard print but some years the colours and designs change. This year the slippers are made out of soft jersey fabric and are in colors that are more natural to real leopard print.

      THE DESIGN

      The slippers have a back less design that I like and the top of my foot is covered. The sole is padded and thick, the top of the slipper is not so thick but it is padded also.

      My leopard print slippers were brought this year and they are natural leopard print colour. There were leopard print slippers that were faint blue when I brought my pair of slippers but they were a different design and not so pleasing for the shape of my foot.

      COMFORT

      I think these slippers are very comfortable and I have brought over 10 pairs since Asda started to sell them. They stay comfortable for many months and can be washed in the washing machine but the padding goes thinner every time you wash them. I wash most of the pairs of slippers 4 or more times before I throw them away and they do not need to be washed more because I wear them indoor only.

      WHAT I THINK

      I like these slippers very much and when I know I will need slippers soon I buy a pair with my shopping because I would hate it if I had to buy new slippers and could not go to Asda.

      I am happy with how long they last for and how soft the sole is because they are cosy to wear and they give warmth to my feet. They are in size ranges instead of shoe sizes and I have got them in medium because my shoes are size 5.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      The price of these slippers is £6 or £8 and that changes between those prices sometimes. This year they are £6 but they might change the design again and the price might go up again.

      5 Dooyoo Stars.

      Another gripping Coben thriller!

      Six years ago a confused and hurt Jake Fisher, watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man.
      Following Natalie's wishes, Jake promises to stay away from her. However, six years later, after seeing an Obituary notice for Natalie's husband, Jake decides to attend the funeral. More confusion follows for Jake, when he discovers the grieving widow is in fact not his Natalie, but a complete stranger. And the confusion does not end there, as Jake starts to ask questions and finds out it's as if ever Natalie never existed.
      Jake sets outs to try and find Natalie and get some answers, but in his quest for the truth he soon finds his own life is at risk as a deadly secret threatens to destroy him.
      Right from the start of Six Years it is obvious that Jake does not understand why Natalie marries Todd who she claims is an ex of hers, instead of Jake. Jake has been suddenly and inexplicably dumped for Todd, and after believing he was the love of Natalie's life, he struggles to accept this sudden turn of events.
      The confusion and shock Jake feels, transfers well to the reader and right away I was hooked, wanting to know what had happened to Natalie and why suddenly nobody appears to remember her.
      I found Jake's character a little weak at first but I did warm to him and understand his character. He wants answers and therefore is determined to pursue the truth, heightened by the fact he can’t even find someone who admits remembering Natalie and there is no record of her marriage to Todd.
      I enjoyed the character of Benedict, Jake's friend and colleague who also features in an intriguing twist, which is a Coben speciality. My only real niggle was that I wished the 'bad guys' had featured more here, as bad guys are another Coben speciality, with some making returning appearances in other Coben novels.
      I did have a minor niggle with the overuse of the word 'stumble.' As Jake stumbled out of here and stumbled out of there and thoughts hit him so hard he almost stumbled, I did find myself wishing Jake would stop stumbling or that Coben could have came up with some alternative words! It was almost amusing thinking back to this after reading.
      Intriguing twists and turns are what I love about a Coben novel, as you can guarantee nothing is ever as it seems. I have never failed to be surprised at how Coben can introduce so many twists and turns to keep you guessing and then marvelling at how he ties everything together at the end.
      Whilst Six Years isn't the most complex Coben novel I have read, nor is it my favourite, it still managed to keep me gripped througout and although I began to guess at certain things, there was still a great twist I never saw coming.

      Advantages

      • Monsters!
      • "Unexpected plot twists"
      • "Great makeup"
      • "Main characters are all likeable"
      • "Gets you hooked"
      • "Exciting "

      Disadvantages

      • "Corny at Parts"
      • "Bad Acting by Extras"

      A great series which you would definitely not regret missing!

      Supernatural is all in all a great series, not many people can deny that at all. The story does an incredible job of pulling you in and keeping you wanting more and more, your hunger for more monsters and ghouls will never be satisfied.

      The creators of this series did an excellent job on the first season. We were instantly introduced to the characters and the answers to the questions as to who they were, what they did, why they did it were all answered and made crystal clear.

      What I personally found interesting about the whole series is the way that they've managed to mix religions, cultures and beliefs from all around the world from the wacky to the truly frightening to provide unique supernatural entities which 9 times out of 10 have more of a mystery behind them than the main characters themselves.

      There are things within the series which are a tad off-putting, such as the poor acting of some of the extras and the corniness in some parts, but this is easily balanced out by the great acting of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jenson Ackles) and of course the twists and turns throughout the story which drop the jaws of the audience.

      The age certificate of 15 is suitable as some episodes in the series do contain nature that some minors will find scary or disturbing, bt at the cheap price of £6.87 for approximately 15 hours of great entertainment it'd be silly not to take advantage.

      Definitely a 10/10 from me.

      Great Service. I'd use them again and recommend them to friends.

      London and Country found us some great mortgages and persisted when some of the providers were being difficult concerning the documents and information they required from us (especially since the recent increase in requirements for mortgage applicants.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great range of products but service could be improved

      A few months ago my husband and I tied the knot. Obviously this meant needing to buy a variety of different jewellery including our wedding rings and presents for our bridesmaids.



      I am only quite petite and so I was after a really small thin wedding ring. I looked around in a few jewellers and I was really pleased when I found that H Samuels had exactly what I was after.



      Samuels seem to have a really nice range of items all across the price spectrum so there may be something for everyone.



      My husband and I both purchased our wedding rings from H Samuels. We must have spent about £350 for both and we were really pleased with the rings. We were however left a bit disappointed with the service. Generally as a bride to be everyone starts gushing and being excited for you - there was absolutely none of this in H Samuels. It was the store manager that served us and she really didn't have a very enthusiastic attitude. She was professional in knowing what she was doing but just very muted.



      I went back to H Samuels on several occasions, one to collect our rings, once to buy my wedding jewellery, and a third time to buy presents for the bridesmaids - I got them each a necklace. 3 out of the 4 times I went back into H Samuels the manager served me but there was no recognition of me.



      Reading the other reviews on DooYoo I can see that many others have had really bad service from H Samuels and so I really hope that I don't have any problems with anything that I buy from them.

      Advantages

      • "speed control"
      • "reverse action"
      • "good size"
      • powerful

      Disadvantages

      • "none unless you want cordless"

      Bosch those concrete posts with ease

      It gives you 800 watts of power, or up to 900 rpms, and is about 380mm long, from handle end to chuck, (no bits in), and about 210mm high at both the back and front handle, and about 80mm wide, weighing in at almost 3kg.
      It had two handles, the one at the rear having the trigger on is, giving you the control and also allowing you to get your body weight behind the power, which helps the bit do it's job sometimes. Then there's the front handle which gives you that little extra stability when it comes to those really stubborn concrete blocks. This front handle can be used anywhere around the drills circumference, so there's no worries for left or right handers.
      It's needs a chuck key in order to open and lock the chuck, which holds the drill bits

      It's not only great for power drilling, it also has something call a rotation stop, which means that it can be used for chiselling too, for such things as chiselling plaster off the walls, as long as you have the right drill bit that is.
      Unlike many corded power drills this one has a reverse function, using the button at the handle of the tool, push down for forward and up for reverse.
      There's a dial on side nearer the front which gives you a selection of speeds, including the hammer function, so there's nothing this one can't blast through.
      Also near the front there is a depth gauge holder, which means that it is a small hole that allows you to slide a measuring rod through it, locking it on place, to give you the exact depth you want to drill.
      The noise coming from this drill is pretty good, for the power, but once you start drilling into things the noise will get worse as the motor does what it is supposed to do.
      The vents do a cracking job in keeping the motor cool and you don't feel much heat on your hands.

      This drill has the power of the corded drills yet the versatility of the cordless drills...
      And the price..? about £120 or so, which is a good price for what you get.

      Advantages

      • "lovely colours"
      • "long lasting"
      • hydrating
      • "gorgeous packaging"

      Disadvantages

      • Expensive

      Expensive, but worth it

      Clarins Joli Rouge Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick is high shine, enhanced by long hold, crystal colours, a luxurious texture and genuine lip care benefits that protect anbd beautify lips all day. It's priced at £19.


      My thoughts
      As ever with Clarins the packaging is beautiful. Simple but elegant, classy, stylish and expensive looking. The twist action of the tube is very smooth and the lid snaps on sceurely, I've never had a problem with either.

      The texture of the lipstick is beautiful, it really is luxurious as Clarins describe it. It glides onto the lips so smoothly and easily, leaving behind a perfectly even layer on your lips. It feels silky and light, not heavy on the lips, but it feels very hydrating and moisturising.
      I have 2 different colours of this lipstick. Pink Orchid, which is a slightly muted pink, and Sorbet, which is a pink that's slightly more towards being peachy. Both these shades are lovely and look amazing on my lips. They have a lovely shine to them which is not over the top or tacky looking, and the colours are fairly sheer but buildable, so you can choose how subtle or bold you want the look to be.

      They lasts really well on my lips and I don't need to reapply at all unless I've been eating, drinking or kissing, in which case they do require a top-up. They also keep my lips feeling soft and nourished all day instead of drying them out like most lipsticks do. They are easy to remove when you want to take them off though, and no staining of the lips occurs!
      Recommended?

      Yes, I would absolutely recommend these lipsticks, they are just fantastic. I realise £19 is a lot of money to shell out on a lipstick, but you really are paying for quality here.

      Great kids film

      DJ Mulrooney drives to the airport to meet his grandchildren Elizabeth and Rodney. Who have come over to stay with their grandfather for a little while. They fly alone and as they are only children, the air stewardess sees them out to their grandfather to make sure they are safe.



      As Elizabeth is out taking a walk, we are shown a talking skunk, that is talking to a gnome and a bird. Saying that Elizabeth might be the one that the gnome has to talk to, for her to help him. The animals are telling the gnome that it is not a good idea to talk to her, as all they do is blab, and will not keep quiet.


      The gnome ignores their advise, and jumps out on Elizabeth who gets a little bit of a shock. Don’t forget he is a gnome so is a lot smaller than she is. She soon strikes up conversation with him, and asks him questions about himself. She goes off and gets her granddad, but the gnome will not come out to anyone else. But after Elizabeth gets upset and is called a liar, Jerome the gnome comes out and reveals himself, much to their granddad’s surprise.


      After talking to the gnome's the grandfather agrees to drive the gnomes to another forest to try and find some other gnome's. They go on a road trip, with funny adventures on the way. But I can not spoil the film to much, so just watch it to find out



      The cast


      Walter Brennan – D.J. Mulrooney

      Matthew Garber Rodney Winthrop

      Karen Dotrice – Elizabeth Winthrop

      Richard Deacon – Ralph Yarby

      Tom Lowell – Jasper

      Sean McClory – Horatio Quaxton


      I think due to the age of the film the acting is not as good as it is these days, but that is due to the better equipment we have now. I did find for the older film the acting was really good, I enjoyed watching each part of this film, as the good acting made the film worth while.



      My opinion


      I can not say I really loved this film myself, but my kids really did enjoy watching it. Which in my book makes this a great film, as it is really for kids. I did enjoy the acting of the film, but the story line was a little bit far fetched for me, but the kids seemed to like the story line part of the film. So for that I will give this film 5 stars as it kept my kids happy and after all it is a kids film. So for that I will recommend this to watch for kids, mine loved it.

      Advantages

      • "An oral sex scene between Anne of Cleeves and Catherine Howard - never did I ever think such a thing...! "
      • "An escape from the usually dry Tudor novels"
      • "A fun look at the Tudors"

      Disadvantages

      • "Stop saying 'verily'!!!"
      • "Bizarre moments which are sometimes TOO bizarre"

      An Entertaining Look At Lady Rochford

      The Tudor Wife is the English title for an American book called Vengeance is Mine, I had read reviews about Vengeance is Mine which made me curious to read it but couldn't find a reasonably priced copy - I read The Tudor Wife quite by accident as I didn't know it had been renamed, and didn't even realise it was the original book I wanted to read until the scene where Anne of Cleves gave oral sex to young Queen Catherine Howard. Yes, you read that right and yes, it's that kind of book.

      The Tudor Wife is the story of Lady Rochford, Anne Boleyn's poisonous sister-in-law who was arguably one of the main reasons the Queen was beheaded and her 'favourites' executed including Lady Rochford's own husband, George Boleyn. I don't know much of Jane Boleyn other than the fact she gave (probably false) evidence and had her husband and the Queen of England executed, and followed them to the scaffold a few years later for facilitating the adultery of Catherine Howard. This book is written from the Tower of London, where Jane is awaiting her own execution - it gives her a voice as she isn't writing her story, she's telling it to you as if you were face-to-face.

      It's written in a crazily quaint way, annoying really as I'm sure not everyone in Henry VIII times started every sentence with 'forsooth' or 'verily' - a few American spellings creep in across the pages which makes the whole thing look rather silly at times. It's a good job the story is so riveting (in a car crash kinda way) otherwise I would have put the book down just a few pages in.

      There are gratuitous sex scenes which are so, so funny - the one I mentioned with Anne and Catherine is absolutely the most hysterical sex scene I've ever read, the hog-faced Anne of Cleeves is actually a beauty (according to this author) who deliberately made herself as unappealing as possible to King Henry as he was no great catch by that point himself. She is also a voracious lesbian apparently and Queen Catherine was happy to have the, ummm, honey applied to her nether-bits by this previous Queen and have it licked off in full view of her ladies in waiting. Bizarre, utterly bizarre.

      As a historical novel it has no merit at all, it's a work of fiction and the fiction has been embellished to completely mental proportions. As a light read in a time period I have an interest in though I thought it was fantastic - totally step away from reality and what you know of these historical folks and you'll probably enjoy the bodice ripping moments of The Tudor Wife, the history isn't gratingly bad anyway as the author has stuck to (most of) the facts and just embroidered!

      Your data is safe on this HP drive

      I have many many flash drives, with this one being one of them that I have used for quite some time now and find it to be as good as any of the others.
      It is compatible with your typical USB 2.0 and the even older 1.1, although there no nice surprises trying to get a higher transfer rate with a USB 3.0, so if your PC has a USB 3.0 port you're not going to get the higher speeds using this in it.
      Don't get me wrong, the speeds are good enough. I sent a 500MB file over to it in less than a couple of minutes, so there's no real waiting about. But if it's speed you want then 3.0 is the way to go.
      It is what is a FAT file, which doesn't mean that it has eaten all the pies, it just means that the file system is FAT,
      It also boast to be something called RoHS compliant, according to the info on the box. This simply means that it is EU safe as it has passed the Restrictions of Hazardous substances... (and no, i'm not that clever, I checking up on line to find out what RoHS was all about, although I do Know what CoSHH stands for..???).
      Anyway...
      It's your standard capped flash drive, which means that there's a chance you could lose the cap if you're not too careful, and it is small enough for your pockets, being about 70mm long, 20mm wide and 8mm thick. There is a little hole on the rear end which is designed for a keyring to slip through so that you can put this with you bunch of keys.

      And the price for this flash drive is a very nice £8 or so … although the price varies depending on the GB size versions you buy. The higher the GB the higher the price.

      I love chick lit and the shopaholic books are one of my favourite series of books. Because the new Shopaholic book is due to be released soon I thought that I would re-read the series before the new one is out.

      The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic is the first book in the Shopaholic series and it is about a girl named Becky Bloomwood who as the title suggests is a complete shopaholic and always after beautiful things. Unfortunately she isn’t rich and most of what she is buying is on credit.

      The book follows Becky as she lurches from one disaster to the next while trying to get herself out of the financial hole she has dug for herself. Unfortunately there are always new shoes and clothes that she just can’t resist.

      I think that every girl can relate to Becky a bit as we all want nice things but she just takes it too far. The character could come across as annoying but luckily she is written so well that you end up just wanting to be her best friend. All the other characters are just as well written and I want to be friends with both Becky and her best friend Suze. Because it is chick lit of course there is the prerequisite love interest Brandon who sounds dreamy and just the type of man that I could find myself falling for in my fantasies.

      The book is laugh out loud funny and even on the second read when I knew what was coming I found myself chuckling aloud at it. The funniest parts are just the ridiculous situations that Becky manages to find herself in while trying to evade her debtors. The funniest part is when she tries for a new job and lies on her CV and I ended up having to put the book down during this part because I was laughing so much.

      This book is real escapism and a perfect summer read to escape the doldrums of real life and lose yourself in someone else’s life for a few hours. It is so easy to read that I found I had finished half the book when I had only meant to read a couple of chapters. It is light frothy and fun and perfect for when you want something fun and easy to read and nothing depressing. It will cheer you up and will definitely raise a few giggles.

      Hunchback of Notre dame

      The hunchback of Notre Dame
      Price:- £11.47 on amazon

      I am a huge Disney fan, I always have been. The hunchback of Notre Dame is a Disney film that I'm not very familiar with it's not one that I own on DVD and I couldn't remember what happened within the film. It was on tv on Sunday so I sat down and watched it, for what felt like the first time.
      Quasimodo lives in the bell tower his master has forbidden him from leaving his only friends are gargoyles. Quasimodo sneaks out of the cathedral to attend the Feast of Fools, where he us crowned the king of fools, he is humiliated and tied up with people throwing rotten vegetables at him. Esmeralda frees Quasimodo, the judge orders her arrest but she escapes from the power of illusions. Quasimodo is then sent back to the cathedral, Esmeralda follows him, they become friends and Quasimodo helps her to escape.

      This film was released in 1996 one of Disney's older films which is often forgotten about.
      The film is based on a novel by Victor Hugo which was written in 1831, I'm quite interested to read thus book. If any of you have read the book I'd be interested to know what it's like.
      Casting
      Tom Hulce the voice of Quasimodo
      Demi Moore the voice of Esmeralda
      Jason Alexander the voice of Hugo
      Tony Jay the voice of Frollo
      Kevin Kline the voice of Phoebus
      Charles kimbrough the voice of Victor

      Until today I didn't realise that Esmeralda's voice was Demi Moore I know it sounds ridiculous as it's quite obvious.
      Like all Disney films there are a lot of songs which is what I think makes them so great and memorable. The lyrics for all Disney films I find superb and extremely fitting they help the story to flow.
      Some if the songs are:-
      The bells of Notre Dame
      Out there
      Tipsy Turvy
      God help the outcasts
      A guy like you
      Someday

      I enjoyed this Disney film like all Disney films. I don't think it's possible to have a bad Disney film. My favourite character is Quasimodo, I feel slightly sorry for him but he also reminds me of someone. I like how the main character is not some good looking young, this teaches children especially that it's on the inside that matters and you can be a hero no matter what you look like. The bread man is definitely the same one from beauty and the beast. I find this film more of a serious mature Disney film with all the darkness and I don't think any of Disney film has a theme of religion which with this is a big part of it. I feel that this Disney film is under rated I've never heard anyone say this is their favourite which is a Shame because it's good and not as predictable as many.
