      Disadvantages

      Think if you need it first

      This is to make the cutting of pineapple easier and also less messy. In all honesty me and my family probably only buy fresh pineapple about 3-4 times a year and before this gadget they quite often went to waste. This is probably because I hated getting the juice on my hands when cutting it, this gadget takes a lot but not all the mess away. However in my head I did imagine it would make it a lot easier as well but it depends on how soft the pineapple is and sometimes it needs a bit of a wiggle. I also haven't thought of anything else I could use it for so although yes it does its job, probably for my family it maybe takes up more space in the cutlery drawer than its worth but if you use lots of pineapple then definitely look into it but don't expect a miracle item.

      Definitely reccomend but be. Very very careful withit

      Great bread maker, absolutely no issues with using it. Recipe book that comes with it is really easy to under stand and clear. And very easy controls.
      However we have had a couple of issues, one is that the fruit and nut dispenser broke quite easily, luckily this was soon after we bought it so we were able to replace it for a new one.
      The loaves slide out so easily of you just tip it upside downand tap the bottom. However my sister decided to use it and instead used a table knife, now she swears she only used it very gently but it left deep scratches. It is still usable fine but we have looked up replacement pans to go inside and they seem to be about £50 to £70 to replace. So it seems that if it gets to a stage where it gets worse,me might be better off buying a new one seeing as it is now about a year old.

        My primary shop for clothes

        I love primark, it is my primary clothes shop. However it is disposable fashion.

        I discovered primark all due to black vests. Sometimes staple clothes can be extremely hard to locate in popular shops and I remember going into many shops and not being able to locate them. This was all a few years ago before primark really became very popular. I went in there not quite knowing what to expect and it was chaos. However when I looked at the prices i was shocked, everything was bargain prices!

        Luckily for me primark moved from its dingy shop where the ladies changing rooms seemed to be more of a communal changing room and a couple of discarded curtains to a recently outfitted shop.

        I pop into primark quite regularly. The clothes are not made to last and easily wear. Wool bobbles, buttons fall off, zips catch and deform. However what you pay for, is what you get.

        You can't go in there and expect to pay ten pounds for a dress and for it to last years to come.

        Primark shops are also not ethical. They are made is sweatshops which I know is wrong and I know I can't really justify it ethically apart from it is cheaper for me and saves me money but everyone needs to make their own choices.

        Bubblegum flavour pink mouthwash for children at reasonable price

        This is available in our local poundshop. It's in a nice bubblegum flavour which is quite mild. It was bought in mind for my seven year old sister. The normal mouthwashes I feel can be too harshly minty for a child this age and this was mild and a fun flavour for them (I admit I have tried a bit myself).

        It is a smaller bottle than most mouthwashes but still when you get it for one pound it is value for money.

        The only problem we seem to have found is that maybe my sister likes it a bit too much as it seemed to go down very quickly as she took up mouth washing every time she went to the toilet.

        It is targeted towards the traditional girls market being in pink and such but I am sure with the flavour, many boys won't have an issue with it. My little sister is quite tomboyish and not into the traditional girl things but I think due to the sweet flavour she makes an exception for this.

        Although bought for a different purchase, I think this is likely to be part of my regular beauty reg

        I have terrible cystic pimples that appear every few months and one of the things suggested for it was extra virgin coconut oil. Desperate for something I popped onto amazon and bought some. £10 for a rather large tub. A day after ordering it and some more research into it I discovered that some people say it makes it worse.

        Oh no! I thought as it had already been dispatched, I have just gone and wasted a tender......luckily though I haven't.

        I haven't used it at all on my face but after reading a bit more on it I have started applying it to my hair and a couple of scars.

        For my hair, it is quite long, reaches the mid of my back and my hair has been dyed for many many years. Also due to a bad experience when I was a child and the fact I am a big wimp, I don't like going to have my hair cut very often. This means I tend to be prone to dry and split ends in my hair. What I do now is after I have washed and conditioned my hair, I semi dry it so it is just a bit damp and then I apply some coconut oil to the ends. After just a couple of goes it has gone really silky which I love.

        On my skin I have a couple of scars which I have applied this too regularly for the past few weeks and I feel like they have faded. They'd haven't disappeared significantly but they have faded a bit.

        When you get the tub of coconut oil, please be aware that this will be solid, I find if I use a finger to push it a bit a chunk will dislodge and melt in my hand. So although it is oil, don't expect a liquid and be aware it can change consistency on room temperature.

        The English used makes it hard to read initially but quick to do so once you get into it

        This was one of the books that burst onto the scene so quickly and everyone started talking about. Having had a vague idea of what was involved I thought I would give it a go. (in secret though and not tell anyone)

        Initially I really quite struggled with it, I think the only way people would enjoy it is ploughing through the first bit and trying not to criticise the author on her writing style.

        After struggling with it not being in the style of something I would normally read, I admit I started to enjoy it.

        It is an easy read and I suppose the steamy bits were a little interesting as it isn't something that is normally touched on it many books. However she is never in your face about the sexual content and always sort of dances around it in a quite delicate way. I had gone in expecting it to be really quite graphic in those areas, seeing as everyone had dubbed it mummyporn.

        In regards to a story line, for me personally it didn't seems to start until the very end of the book and because of this I was quite tempted to read the second book initially. It has however now been a couple of months since I read the first book and seeing as the interest in the book has died down, so has my interest in reading the second.

        I must say well done to the author on making a rather taboo subject quite talked about and making a lot of money from it but for me it was interesting for awhile but not overly.

        Disadvantages

        Good price for the product and good quality

        I have been a fan of the boots sprays since I discovered them a few months ago. You can get quite a few different smells as there is a range available. For this particular one it smelt quite sweet, I liked it but it isn't one of my top favourite smells that they offer. Then again scents are always quite personal.
        These type of spritzer sprays I find are always a preference as it is not an aerosol. However they for me are for home use only. It isn't something I am comfortable carrying around in my handbag due to the fact the opening of the bottle is just a screw top and therefore I do not feel it is as secure as an aerosol.
        The price is very reasonable for what they are and also as they are not aerosols it is quite handy for girls who are maybe a bit too young for aerosols but would feel a bit more grown up by having something like this. Also seeing as this is a quite sweet smell it will also appeal to them.
