      If you like fruit tea give them a try

      I love fruit tea and these were all ones that i'd never tasted. I tried each one trying to work out which was my favourite and i've still not decided. There's only one that i'm not keen on because it's too flowery for my taste. I think twinings fruit teas are a bit watery but if you add a bit of sugar it brings out the flavour much more. Not everyone likes fruit tea but if you do you should try these, you get a great variety and it doesn't matter if you don't like one flavour because there's plenty more to chose from. They're a healthy, caffeine free alternative to drinking tea and taste much nicer than just drinking warm squash. I believe most of them contain anti oxidants as well which are really good for you skin. So overall a healthy, fruity, fantastic treat which i'd definitely recommend, though they taste nicest with a bit of sugar or honey!

      Disadvantages

      I'd recommend it to anyone looking to try a new kind of drink

      The first time i had martini was at a family party, i drank it with lemonade and loved it. It's not particularly strong if you drink it with lemonade so it's great for those who don't drink much but it tastes so nice. My friends just drinks it neat like wine but it's a bit strong like that for my liking. It's fun to have at parties as a long drink with lots of ice, bit of lemonade and a stirer and it's also a low fat alcohol if you're watching your weight a bit. I prefer rosso to ordinary martini as it's got more taste to it, it's a bit more fruity and fresh than blanco. To me it's the perfect drink for those long hot summer evenings but it's also great for those warm winter nights by the fire. You can use martini in lots of different cocktails too so it's a tasty, versatile, low fat drink, it's got my vote!

        Go pick yourself up a metro next time you're at the train station!

        Everytime i go to a train station i always look for a metro and get my free copy. It is such a light heated newspaper, there are so many stories that wouldn't be reported in your usual newspapers but the metro reports them. Though by far the best thing about the metro is that it's completely free, you know what they say the best things in life are free! Whether you like to read the articles or not there's something for everyone, there's always sudoku puzzles for those who'd rather sit and exercise their brain, there's horoscopes for those who like to know how the day's going to pan out. All in all it's a fun newspaper which anyone will enjoy and it's just full of lots of little stories to make you smile. I think it's the best free paper and i love the mtero and would and do definitely recommend it!

        I'd recommend them!

        I've been a broadband customer with them for nearly a year now and i'm really impressed. I had a lot of troubles with my old provider and the best thing about tiscali was that it was so much cheaper. I mainly use it for wireless on my internet and it has never cut out on me. My sister uses it on the computer and she's never complained about it. It was very easy to set up and the router and that is still working. There is the odd day where we can't connect but if you phone up they are usually just updating and it's only ever happened twice to my knowledge whilst we've been with them. The only complaint i'd have is that it's not very fast but i suppose you should expect that living in the countryside anyway. The only thing i can't comment on really is the customer service as we've never really needed their help as the internet has worked really well! I'd recommend tiscali especially if you've had problems with other internet providers.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Every woman should have one!

        What can i say? For starters it's extremely long lasting, you can put it on in the morning and it's still be there at the end of the day, all you need is to touch it up a bit after you've eaten and you're good to go again. Secondly it comes in a great range of colours, i've never really had much confidence to wear bright shades of lipstick but i thought i'd try it and it really changes the way you look, the wide range of shades suit any skin tone and they're all equally eye catching. Thirdly it doesn't melt or go all gooey and horrid. It really does stay nice and give long lasting, eye grabbing lips. I'd recommend it to anyone who wears lipstick or i looking for a new lipstick and especially to people who are looking for something a bit more eye catching, a really great product!

        I'd recommend it to everyone

        I am allergic to plasters and most types of tape but this is the only one i've found that i'm ok with. It sticks firmly and doesn't leave me with any form of rash and lasts for ages. Handy for those little medical emergencies around the house and as it comes in a small box it fits neatly in your first aid kit! Great for anyone who is allergic to plasters, like me, as it's a quick and easy way to cover up an injury. I'd recommend it to anyone who has a first aid kit at home and especially to people with allergies to plasters, it does everything it claims to do and it's a nice long roll so it lasts a long time. It's there whenever you need it and it works well, keeps your wounds clean while they heal and doesn't come unstuck or give allergic reactions like other medical tapes.

        I'd recommend them to everyone!

        I've been using specsavers for about 4 years now and they are really really good. I expected them to be a pit pushy and take you straight over to the most expensive glasses and not give you the time of day when you couldn't afford them but they were really helpful! If you have an NHS voucher they give you really good discounts and if not their prices aren't bad at all. Their opticians are really great, my eyesight isn't that bad but it fluctuates and they are happy to test my eyes more than once just to check they've got my prescription right. The dispensing opticians always listen and fit your glasses to perfection, if on the off chance they aren't quite right if you pop back to the store they'll sort them out for you. A great company to go with whether you need an eye test or want to buy glasses, friendly and very helpful! I'd definitely recommend them!

        Not a great experience

        I have only ever been on 2 first western trains as my experiences were so bad! I was travelling from london to oxford during rush hour, i use trains regularly so i'm not bothered about having to stand or a train being busy but this train there was not room for a single person but we had to get on that train, a nice gentleman managed to squeeze me and my friend in and for the first half hour until the next stop it was impossible to move, i was packed in like a sardine, i didn't even have enough room to put my bags down or to read my book. The next day we had to get a train back and it wasn't so bad but it was still incredibly busy, i think they really need to work on their service and put on more trains as it was way too crowded!

          Well worth a visit!

          A really lovely place to eat, once your inside you forget you're in the middle of a city and it feels like a romantic place to eat. The food at Zizzi is amazing, i have never heard one bad comment, i've loved everything i tried, you get nice big meals too, especially the pizzas! The staff are friendly and you get served quickly which is nice, it's a lovely warm place to eat and it does feel like a taste of italy. The only bad point about the restaurant is that most of the seating is downstairs and you have to go upstairs again to the toilet but it's not really a big issue. Last time i went was with my vegetarian friend and there were plenty of things she could have which is always good. The wine is a bit expensive but it's nice wine and worth it. All in all excellent service and really excellent food.

          Overall probably not the best

          I've got very mixed opinions of Vodafone. The signal is reasonable, but there are large areas where it's almost impossible to get signal. Their pay as you go prices are extortionate but i'm now on their £20 30 day contract which is much better. Their customer service online is appalling, i was lucky enough to eventually get a reply but it didn't answer my questions and when i e-mailed back i just got the same answer again. Their warranty is good in that you can get the phone fixed for the first year but they should tell you that ONLY if the phone breaks within the first 2 weeks will they give you a refund, mine broke in the first two weeks and i took it back after 15 days and they wouldn't give me a refund. I think they can be great but you should be wary that they probably aren't the best or the cheapest.

          I wouldn't use them again!

          I'm not sure i can put into words quite how unpleasant my experience with AOL has been! We had many long periods for which our home internet didn't work which is extremely annoying, there is never a reasin given for it or a time as to when you'll be abel to reconnect. The internet disconnected regularly and we had no ends of problems. The only thing that makes them deserve one star is the fact that all the equipment they sent us worked. The worst thing was when we tried to leave they didn't send us our code to change over and kept hassling us to stay and then kept taking money out of our account for a long time after we'd left them. I'd never consider going back and i certainly wouldn't recommend them to anyone, we've changed to another provider and we're much happier now! I wouldn't bother doing business with them and their prices aren't even good anyway.

          Great place to buy cheap fashionable clothes

          A great website, updated regularly and full of bargin buys and designer must haves. Very reasonably priced and the delivery isn't bad either, they take things back no questions asked which means if things don't fit you can send it back and change it, though you do have to pay postage back to them again which is a slight disadvantage. They have regular sales and offers on which means whatever you're looking for you're bound to find it at a low price and there really is something for everyone. It's an easy to use website and buying from them is really no hassle. I regularly check their website and they make it very easy to keep your wardrobe up to date without spending a fortune, they give you suggestions of what would go with an item you like and if you change your mind you can just send it back. I'd recommend buying from ASOS and i don't think you should be put off by the fact it's online, it's practically the same as buying in a shop and they give you the measurements for the different size if you're a bit worried about that. I think they're great especially for bargins!

          Good reliable fiat with a few sporty touches, it's great

          I recently bought a used fiat punto sporting 3 door and i love it! It's like a dream. Mine is an 02 reg but it's like new. I love the fact it keeps with the old fiat punto look but it's got those extra sport touches, like 6 gears, 16 valve engine and those blue seats just look great. It's a lovely car to drive, very fuel efficient and in the low tax band due to it's low CO2 emissions, it looks stunning and sounds good too. It's cheap to run due to the great fuel efficiency and mines hasn't had any problems! I like the fact it's got 5 seats and a big boot but it's still a small car, maybe could do with a bit more leg room in the back but that's the only fault i could find with it. Inexpensive, cheap to run, great car, i'd recommend it to anybody!

          Disadvantages

          Good to read every now and then

          I've bought Diva for about a year now, there are very few lesbian magazines out there and this one can be found widely which is great! It's quite expensive for what it is which is disappointing. I don't buy it every month as some issues contain few articles i'd read. The columnists are very good and it keeps you up to date with many events nationwide. It contains travel and technology information as well as stories about different people and interviews with different LGBT and straight celebs. Definitely worth investigating if you're lesbian or a bisexual woman as it's nice to know you're not alone. I think it's very interesting, some of the articles are a little unusual and you do wonder where the inspiration came from but overall it's worth checking out and definitely makes you feel more part of the LGBT community. I'm sure you'll find something you like in each issue so have a look!

          good value for money and long lasting!

          I've had quite a few pairs of these headphones as they are very reasonably priced, they last a very long time, much more than any other headphones i've ever had. The sound quality is good and they fit nicely in your ear, you've got optional covers to go with them which is good too as i prefer those. I've only ever had one problem and that is i bought one pair which didn't work very well i think there must have been a broken wire in them but i took them back no problem and got a new pair which worked well. For the price they are very well worth it, they are definitely long lasting and don't get tangled very much. I take them everywhere with me and they are the only headphones i've bought for quite a long while. Cheap and well worth it, long lasting and good value for money!
