      vitamin e facial mist

      I adore The Body Shop's range of vitamin E products. I have been using various items from the range for quite a few years now and love how they make my skin feel and more importantly, how they make me feel inside and out. I think they are really good quality beauty products and I love the vitamin E ingredient which is fairly different from most beauty products on the market today. One of my favourite products from the range is this vitamin E face mist.


      This mist is like a refreshing blast of gorgoeus watery rose water that hydrates and refreshes my face. The mist comes in a little bottle with a spray function at the top so when you spray it on your face you get a really nice soft cooling sensation from the mist. I tend to hold this fairly far away from my face so when I do spray it it will cover my whole face with just one or two sprays. The liquid then dries fairly quickly and you are just left with this dewy fresh faced feeling and a nice scent on your skin too.

      The scent has a lovely rosewater smell to it. This is quite a light delicate rose smell and not overpowering or too flowery like some rose scents can be. I find it subtle but intoxicating all at the same time.


      I love to use this spray in summertime when I have come in from being outside and my face is all hot and sticky. If I can't wash it straight away its great to be able to spray this on and feel my face cool. Its also nice when my face is feeling a bit tight and dry such as after the gym or when I have been swimming, its a perfect way of quickly adding moisture to my face.


      This spray is great for setting your make up too so when I have done my look for a night out I give it a quick spray with this mist and everything seems to look a bit nicer and brighter and I find mt eyeshadow stays nice and put, as does my mascara too so its nice to be able to spray this before I go out.


      A 100ml bottle costs £8 and is one beauty product I definitely recommend.

      Advantages

      • "Value for money"
      • "Quick fitting service"
      • "Professional service"
      • "Free no obligation quotation"

      Disadvantages

      Good quality for an affordable price. Great service.

      My wife and I received a very good service from Sharps Bedrooms. The gentleman that visited our house was very professional and didn't put us under any pressure to purchase the bedroom. He made the most out of the small space we have in our bedroom. The fitting of the bedroom was stress free and quick. The quality of the wood is very good, the prices are very affordable. I am very happy with the whole service we received and would recommend Sharps to anyone. Keith Perry.

      Advantages

      • "A little goes a long way"
      • "Has a radiant effect"
      • "Evens out colour of skin"
      • "Looks natural"
      • "Really good coverage"

      Disadvantages

      • "Quite pricey"

      The Best Concealer Out There?

      A family member gave me some of this Mac Mineralize Concealer recently as a gift. It came in a small back box with some product information on the outer packaging including full ingredients and contact information. The shade is printed on a sticker on the end of the box and I have N20 which is a warm but still a fairly light shade in the whole range.
      The product I have is a 5ml or 0.17Fl. Oz sized bottle. The little bottle itself is transparent plastic and the top has a large rubber screw off lid. The whole thing measures 3 ½ inches so it’s small enough to carry in a purse. The applicator inside is a small, precise soft bristle bush. I find the brush very easy to direct onto the skin. The applicator lid is actually a strange soft rubber material which can feel spongy to hold though.
      Mac state this product contains “minerals and botanicals” which are meant to be nourishing and beneficial to the skin. They state that this will provide medium coverage with a “natural luminous finish”.
      The product is very creamy and rich and feels really soft when you blend it into your skin with a finger. I find the product is easy to blend in and once it has settled in has this sort of invisible second skin appearance. It manages to conceal without looking like a concealer! It’s a very clever product! I’ve found that less is definitely more with this product as a little smudge of this can cover a wide area of skin. The product is brilliant at concealing any redness, prominent veins or eye circles.
      This product is fairly pricey at GBP17.00 and at first I wasn’t convinced it would be better than my much cheaper concealer. I therefore actually tested the two side by side - using the Mac on one side of my face and my cheap product on the other. The difference was incredible. This Mac concealer looked so much more natural and healthy. It also gave me much better coverage in general and evened out areas where there was any discoloration or blemishes. I can therefore attest that paying more in this case is actually worth it.
      The concealer feels light and breathable on the skin and it is easy to remove at the end of the day with make-up remover and facial wash. I am certainly impressed by this product and would love to keep on buying it as long as I can afford to! I would definitely recommend this product if you have troublesome skin which needs a really good cover up or if you have a big occasion coming up like a wedding. I don’t know if there is a better concealer out there, to be honest!

      Advantages

      • "Country – USA"
      • "Run Time – 95 minutes"
      • "Genre – Horror"
      • "Certificate – 18R"
      • "Star – Elizabeth Banks"

      Disadvantages

      • "Bit familiar to horror fans"

      A monstrously funny alien-invasion-zombie-horror-comedy.

      Slither is one of those American backwoods horror flicks you think you have seen a hundred times before and probably have, controversy at the time because of director James Gunn’s magpie tendencies, stealing little bits from every other American horror film you have ever seen. But it’s more of a movie fans homage to Carpenter, King and Cronnenberg than anything cynical and all the more humorous for it. Fred Dekker, The creator of the 1985 film Night of the Creeps, claims its 75% of his film. To me every horror movie reverts to cliche and familiarity at some point to get those screams and eeks on cue and all cliche is plagiarism at the end of the day. I could have dream t up the plot to this myself and easily squeezed it on the back of a fag packet.


      ===Cast===

      • Nathan Fillion as Bill Pardy
      • Elizabeth Banks as Starla Grant
      • Michael Rooker as Grantford "Grant" Grant
      • Tania Saulnier as Kylie Strutemyer
      • Matreya Fedor as Emily Strutemyer
      • Gregg Henry as Jackson "Jack" MacReady
      • Don Thompson as Walter "Wally" Whale
      • Brenda James as Brendalynne "Brenda" Gutierrez
      • Jenna Fischer as Shelby Cunningham
      • Jennifer Copping as Margaret Hooper
      • Haig Sutherland as Trevor Carpenter
      • Amber Lee Bartlett as Jenna Strutemyer


      ===Plot===

      Small town balding mechanic Grant (Michael Rooker) is married to sexy schoolteacher Starla (Elizabeth Banks). Whilst Grant is out drinking late and trying to steel a drunken kiss from the local barmaid (Tania Saulnier) in the woods behind the bar he catches sight of a gooey pod shaped thing. Earlier a meteor like object had streaked across the sky and impacted nearby. Could it have come from that and not of this world? When it spears a boozy Grant with a stinger the answer is probably yes.

      It’s not long before Grant is ‘changing’, his wife noticing something strange in her man, but unaware of the large tentacles gestating in his gut, Grant now the host for something nasty. And the alien inside is a hungry little beast and likes raw meat, and lots of it, soon the local pets and dogs disappearing. Grant begins to morph into something disgusting, probing his tentacles into Kylie, she, too, on the way to being one of them.

      Local cop Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion) still holds a torch for Starla and as Grant munches up the town and changes into a squid like beast the whole of the townsfolk prepare to do battle with their alien monster. Its ready to give birth and that would mean a lot more of them.


      ===Results===


      Gross-out horror comedy is my least favorite genre, but this movie's so skillful in presenting that usual stuff you only ever seem to get from America you have to take your hat off to it. It’s surprisingly funny tongue-in-cheek stuff and above average in the genre, gore and gangs in equal measure. The zombie munching scene to the Carpenters soundtrack will make you chuckle. But that nagging claim of plagiarism hit the gross and the all important date night crowd were not that taken with it, presumably fearing more of the same horror cliche, its $15 million budget bringing in just $12 million back, a bit of a flop.

      But with plenty of horror film and monster movie referencing throughout its better than the final gross suggests, very much one of those nostalgic horror films you should TiVo form the TV. I laughed throughout and although the plot is extremely predictable (and deliberately so) you stay with it and joyously box tick those horror cliches. Its self-parody style elevates it above most in the genre and I realty don’t care how many bits it stole. If you want a slightly smart and knowing horror fun comedy then this is for you.

      San Francisco Chronicle –‘Here's a review that not only benefits from, but requires, words like giant squid, festering blob and tummy tentacles’.

      Empire Magazine –‘Undeniably funny and gooey to boot, Slither may not be groundbreaking but it is a rarity: a horror-comedy that does both its genre-parents proud’.

      Sci-Fi Movie –‘An under-appreciated gem that horror fans would appreciate’.

      Daily Mail –‘Slither is over-the-top, gross, funny, bizarre and totally weird. In other words, it might be just what you're looking for this weekend’.

      Independent –‘Unlike the current concept of over the top bloodletting that thinks the sequence is more important than the sluice, this inspired auteur gets his groovy grue just right’.

      A brilliant book. A must read.

      The Fault in our Stars
      Written by John Green
      Published: 2012
      Price: £3.85 on Amazon.
      Number of pages 313

      I’ve heard quite good reviews on the Fault in our Stars film and knew it was a book so just had to purchase it. I’m one of those people that likes to read the book first then watch the film. I haven’t got round to watching the film yet so will review that and compare to the book once it’s released on DVD.
      I purchased the book from Asda it was in part of a deal 3 books for £10.00 as its summer and I’ve planned many weekends away I thought 3 books would be great and with such great titles to choose from it was hard to resist.
      Main Characters
      Hazel Grace- The main character who tells the story of her life as a cancer patient aged just 16 the struggles and joys she faces
      Augustus – A great supporting friend for both Hazel Grace and Isaac, always coming up with great ideas.
      Isaac- My favourite character although he has a lot of bad luck throughout this book I hope for happiness for him.

      Themes/Emotions
      Love
      Relationship/ Friendship
      Travelling
      Illness
      Death/Loss/Grief
      Family
      Wishes/ Dreams

      The Plot
      The Fault in our Stars is about a cancer patient called Hazel Grace Lancaster, the whole story is told by her from her point of view which is a very nice way of writing. Hazel attends a cancel support group once a week, not that she wants to attend but it’s to keep her mum happy and lets her mix with people who are going through the same experience she is. It’s a group where people talk about how they are feeling and support one another. All the members of the group are roughly the same age, Teenagers. At one of the support meetings that Hazel is reluctant to go to she meets a guy called Augustus, He is friends with Isaac who is a friend of Hazels, Isaac had a tumour in one of his eyes and had that removed but now unfortunately it has returned to the other eye meaning that he has to have that one taken out as well. Isaac doesn’t have much luck throughout the story he loses his sight and his girlfriend in a matter of weeks. But luckily for him he has two great friends Augustus and Hazel. After Augustus First meeting him invites Hazel back to his house to watch V is for Vendetta as apparently Hazel looks like Natalie Portman. We learn from this that Augustus is now cancer free after having his leg amputated. Hazel however is not she has thyroid cancer that has spread to her lungs meaning she has to carry around an oxygen tank with her, before leaving hazel and Augustus agree to read each other’s favourite books, his is ‘The price of dawn’ and hers is ‘an imperial affliction’. ‘An Imperial Affliction sends the two on an adventure, The books ends with so many unanswered questions that Hazel has been thinking about constantly that Augustus gets in contact with the PA of the author and after several forward and back emails he decides to use his one wish that cancer patients receive from a generous charity to take her to Amsterdam to find out the answers to her question as Van Houton the Author refuses to email the answers. When Hazel’s lungs fill with liquid and is rushed to ICU she thinks her dream of finding out the answers has gone but this is not true. Hazel’s mother joins Augustus and Hazel on their journey to Amsterdam. When the two meet Mr Van Houton he is not what they were expecting and they leave very disappointed. That day Augustus has something to tell Hazel as well his cancer has returned…..
      I will end my plot summary there as I don’t want to give away the ending for those of you who are reading it.

      My Opinion
      I really enjoyed reading this book I read it in 2 days although if I didn’t have work I think I could have easily finished it in day. (Damn work) It’s an easy read which is suitable and written for young adults possibly teenagers. Throughout this story you read so much about Hazel Grace, Augustus and Isaac that it’s impossible not to fall in love with the characters. When reading this book I went through every emotional possible, I laughed I cried and some emotions in between. I’m sure many people if not everyone has had to face cancer at some point in their life maybe not directly but a family member, colleague or friend, so to write a book where young 16/17 year olds have cancer must have been really difficult. We all know that young people do get ill and die but I think it’s a something that we don’t want to think about. This tear jerking book is extremely sensitive and you can tell the writer has done a lot of research into the conditions.
      I really liked that it was written from Hazel Grace’s point of view, as a reader you felt how she felt, she took you on a journey of the ups and lows of her life. I loved every 313 pages of this book and looking forward to reading more of Mr John Greens work. I do face a dilemma now of do I watch the film? I have many times read a book then watched the film and felt heartbroken at how the film doesn’t do the book justice.
      I would recommend to anyone who likes a good book to read this it’ll be well worth your time. An exceptional book with loveable characters and great themes within the plot.

      Advantages

      • "General ease of use"
      • "Hearing aid compatible "
      • "Clear screen"
      • "Large buttons"

      Disadvantages

      • "Small name and number phonebook"
      • "Poor looking design"

      All round great phone, especially for older people.

      The Binatone SPEAKEASY-7 is your average landline phone with some nice new features which I think everyone will like. The Binatone SPEAKEASY-7 comes with a disappointing design which may become a bit of a pain to look at. This phone has been nicely designed with large buttons with clear writing which makes it easy to use especially for the elderly. The Binatone SPEAKEASY-7 also comes with a nice clear screen at the top displaying things like the number of the person calling you, the current date and the time. All this is made clear on a nice backlit screen. Through this the phone is very easy to use. The phone itself is also hearing aid compatible which means it could be extremely useful with older people. Coupling that capability with the large clear buttons and clear screen this is idle for older people. The phone also comes with a hands-free speakerphone which is a nice little addition for any phone. The 13 name and number memory is very disappointing not giving you much choice and you will either nee to buy a phone book or another phone like the Binatone ACURA3000. Besides if you miss a call from someone you have a nice yet clear answering machine. The Binatone SPEAKEASY-7 also comes with some other features like caller ID, a call log and a speaker and volume control which all add up to make a great phone. All in all this phone is quite good especially for older people offering a good solid build and some nice features although the phonebook is far too small.

      A Good Looking Watch That Keeps Good Time

      I bought this watch for my daughter for Christmas and it's been a hit so far, in the months that have passed it's been worn every day pretty much and keeps fantastic time. It's a battery watch but we haven't had to replace the battery yet, I did notice yesterday that it lost a couple of minutes during the time my daughter was out of the house so maybe that's an indicator that the battery is going to need changing soon.





      The face of the watch is easy to read and on the odd occasion I've worn it myself I've always been impressed with the ease at which I can read the time, it's quite a busy face with different shades of pink but still surprisingly easy to focus on even in bright light.





      The strap is very comfortable, it has small holes around the whole strap which is presumably to allow the air to circulate if you're exercising while wearing the watch (as people are wont to do while wearing the Adidas brand). This doesn't look like a sports watch and doesn't have any sporty functions, but this was ideal for my daughter when we bought it as she's not the most active teenager on the planet these days! The watch is easy to fasten thanks to a decent size responsive buckle, my daughter has never had a problem in doing it up - and neither have I even if I do have very little experience of wearing and fastening a watch strap.





      I can't fault this watch and am more than happy with it. I paid in the region of £80 for it as my daughter has had cheaper watches in the past and I thought it was time we got her something a little more expensive so she could maybe learn the difference between cheap and cheerful and a quality item.

      It makes a super gift as it was packaged in a smart looking Adidas box when it was new, the box is so attractive that Alice took the insert out and now uses it to keep her earrings in as it's the perfect size.

      Advantages

      • "Gentle bathing"

      Disadvantages

      • None

      Baby bath

      Johnsons baby bath

      I like the Johnsons baby bath products as I find they are nice and gentle on my skin, and not at all drying

      THE PROMISES...

      The main promise I think this product makes is that of "no more tears" if it goes into your eyes, fine, it won't sting. This promises to be mild to the eyes and skin and gentle enough to use daily even on a baby. A great promise especially since my skin is quite dry at the moment and I don't want a lot of perfumed stuff.

      PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...

      There are posts of versions of the baby bath including bedtime, moisturising, mildest ever. I think mine is probably the very basic one as all it promises is not to make eyes sting.

      It comes in a large 750ml plastic bottle with the information and directions for use on the back. The product itself is blue and has that lovely baby fresh smell which always makes me think of these Johnson baby products. The smell is really strong when sniffed at through the bottle but when it is added to water it is a more diluted smell which for me is a bit of a shame as I would like the bathroom to smell like this, and for it to linger.

      It's not an especially thick and creamy bath product and the best way to get lots of bubbles is to add it directly to running water or to agitate the water pence it is added to the water.

      USING THE PRODUCT...

      Simply add to running watr, mix it up a bit and then bathe. Because it is so mild, it does rinse off really easily and doesn't leave any nasty sticky residue.

      PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...

      I'm not sure of the RRP but this is widely available from bargain stores and mine cost only £1 for this big bottle which is a real bargain.

      VERDICT...

      As expected, a lovely gentle bathing product. It's not especially moisturising but for me that's ok because I always apply moisturiser after a bath, the thing I like most about it is that it doesn't irritate my skin, but just seems to cleanse it gently. Little Miss also uses it in the shower by applying it to a sponge. She likes it because if it gets in her eyes it doesn't bother her. It seems to lather up better when applied with a sponge, and gives the same cleaning results.

      Well worth the money, a well known and recommended product.

      Thanks for reading

      Fantastic, proffessional, polite and highly recommend

      I used L&C and wasn't sure what to expect. The assistant briony Johnson was fantastic and explained everything fully. She called at Stated times and was very polite and helpful. I'm not the best with things like sorting morgages etc but she was patient and explained all procedures. Can't fault this service from start to finish it was proffessional and I will use again having already recommended to a friend who is in contact already. The case manager james beaver was print with correspondence and again helpful. I Can't thank enough and very glad I found out about this company. Thanks again M1731628

      Advantages

      • "It's Wolverine - on his own - and having a very bad day. What's not to like?"

      Disadvantages

      • " but when it does..."
      • "A bit slow to get going"

      Hugh Jackman IS the Wolverine!

      The original X-Men trilogy was one of the most disappointing superhero franchises to ever hit the screen. It promised so much, yet delivered so little. Wolverine Origins, the first spin-off film, did its best to redeem this and partially succeeded, so it comes as no surprise then that that particular film now gets a sequel.
      Logan is a prisoner of war in WWII when he saves the life of a Japanese soldier. Years later, that same soldier has grow up to become a highly successful business man, but he is dying and his last wish is to speak to Logan and see him one last time.
      Still reeling from the death of Jean Grey, who died at his own hands in X-Men 3, and haunted by visions of her ghost (?), Logan reluctantly agrees to pay the old man a visit, but quickly finds himself over his head in trouble when someone steals his ability to heal.
      This is quite a silly film at times, and requires a certain fair amount of suspension of disbelief, but it is a lot of fun nonetheless. The first few scenes in Japan drag a little, but when it gets going, boy does it get going.
      As per usual with these films there is an after-credits sequence and this time (spoilers), the scene leads right into Days Of Future Past - the next big screen X-men adventure.
      Overall I found this a lot of fun. There's enough action to keep any decent comic book fan interested and Hugh Jackman as usual excels as the Canadian mutant with Adamantium claws.
      My favourite moments are the opening scenes - which show just how far Logan has fallen and demonstrate that, despite this, he still has his morals but, for me, the whole film is such an improvement on the original.
      It is said that there is due to be one more film in the series, before Jackman could well be hanging up his claws.
      Personally, judging from this, I look forward to it!

      Advantages

      • " perfectly acted"
      • " brilliantly written"
      • "gripping plot"

      Disadvantages

      • "one man. In a box. Might not be for some."

      One of the most well written films I have seen in a long while.

      As a recently published writer myself, I have come to really appreciate good writing and in Buried, I was singularly impressed with the way the writers were able to carry off an almost two hour film with just the use of one single actor.
      When this was first released, it is fair to say I did not have high hopes for it. It is also fair to say it really did not pique my interest, but the other night, with nothing else on, I finally succumbed to watching it.
      Paul Conway is a truck driver in Iraq. The film opens with him waking up, trapped in a box, buried underground. The only thing in there with him, or so he at first believes, being a cell phone - apparently belonging to one of the terrorists who put him there. Over the course of several phone calls, eventually Paul manages to get hold of the American Embassy, who assure him they are doing their best to find him.
      But time is running out...and people keep putting him on hold.
      This is probably Ryan Reynolds best role to date and it is due in no small part to his capability as an actor that he is able to pull this off convincingly. At no point does the tension let up, so for the duration of the film, the viewer is left sitting on the edge of their seat.
      This is a very clever film that works on a number of levels. Not only is it a terse and gripping thriller, but it also has a lot to say about the war on terror, the affect this has on civilians working in such hostile environments and even manages to question just what makes a terrorist anyway.
      Though it won't be for some, I really really really enjoyed this and thought it one of the best and well written films I have seen to date!
      I would never have said initially that the plot would've worked, or that it would manage to hook me for so long.
      I am pleased to say I was wrong!

      A great, quick way to eat yoghurt on the go

      We bought these recently as a change for my daughter, as she had tried them round a friends house and loved them.I never thought she would, but what do i know?
      They come in a variety of flavours, but my daughter is a fan of the strawberry ones so those are the ones we tend to buy.
      You get 9 frube tubes in a box, which isn't a lot, and they cost £2 for a box, but my local supermarket is forever doing a deal and you can usually but two boxes for £3. This is a great deal as an alternative brand sells at £1 for 6.
      To open, you simply bite or cut the top of the tube, put in your mouth and squeeze for healthy, yoghurty goodness. The only thing you do have to watch is sometimes these spurt out everywhere resulting in a yoghurt related incident!
      These are great for carrying around as a snack as they take up no room at all in a bag and are far less bulky than carrying around more traditional yoghurts.
      They are a great source of calcium, healthy for you, contain no artificial sweeteners or colours, and can even be enjoyed by vegetarians!
      Another great use for them is to freeze them and use them as an ice lolly. This is especially a good idea in the hot summer we are having, and taste a little like a homemade version of one of those milk ice lollies we all used to enjoy as kids!
      My daughter loves them like this, but she is sometimes impatient to wait for them to freeze.
      Overall, these are a real big winner in my house and I fully recommend them. At the moment, they even contain codes for bonus Moshi Monster coins to be used online, so there has never been a better time to stop by and buy some
