I have been a user of various lynx products since the age of about 12. I have tried pretty much all of their different scents that i am aware of and i have on the whole been very pleased with the consistently high quality products which Lynx have released. So when i saw the new Lynx shock shower gel on the shelf of my local Tesco i felt as if it was my duty to buy and try this new product.
So i got home, unpacked my shopping and had a shower. inevitably i used my new Lynx shower gel; and i think its called shock for a reason ! As soon as the gel hit my body i had an instant coolness and it was amazing! Even after i washed the gel off, my body still felt refreshingly cool, which is perfect for the summer heat ! On the bottle of the gel is states that its ' Glacier water deep sea enriched mint shower gel'. Wether this is the reason behind the cool feeling the gel gives you, or whether it makes no difference and is merely a marketing idea; i really don't know. To be quite honest with you, i don't care either; the end result is what matters to me.
Also the smell of this shower gel is quite impressive, even by Lynx's very high standards. Its quite a unique smell that's hard to describe.. it sort of just smells like.. freshness !
However to me, the smell isn't important, its the uniqueness of the product and the feeling it gives you after you've used it that really makes it different from other shower gels.
The water boy has a simple storyline. Its about a long serving water boy, turned footballer who is renowned for his mighty tackles. Bobby (Sandler) joins an American football team behind his 'mummas' back as she says that football 'is the devil'. Along the way he falls in love with local bad girl Vicky Valencourt, which he also has to keep on the low because to his mumma she is also 'the devil'
This film is a simply brilliant comedy from Adam Sander in his earlier days. Its full of laughs and its one of those films which you can simply watch again and again. It isn't a serious film and it has a storyline which isn't really too significant. What im basically trying to say is if your an Adam Sandler fan, or a fan of comedies in general, then your bound to love this film, as are your family and friends. I strongly recommend it.

I chose this phone for one main reason, blackberry have finally released an affordable smart phone.In times of the past when somebody mentioned blackberry, people would automatically think, that they were on about a rich businessman's phone that was hard to use and was simply too expensive. However with the release of the curve, and the emphasis that blackberry have put on the blackberry messenger application, blackberry have turned a new corner and have reached out to a new market, the teenage generation.
Now I'm not saying that these phones are simply for teenagers but because of the vastly extending range of games and apps available from blackberry app world, along and the instant messaging application blackberry messenger, these phones really do appeal to teenagers', more now then ever. But, they have also kept all of their businessman phone credentials such as a the planner/calender, the wi-fi connection, the ability to synchronize your phone with your email account, the memo pad, as well as the ability to open and edit word documents, excel documents and power points. It has also kept the basic mobile phone features such as a camera, media player and blue-tooth.
However, from personal experience and from the experience of friends and family, i must say this phone does tend to break. I myself, have had to replace it twice within the space of eight months because the track-pad(the button in the middle which you use to navigate around the phone), has stopped working, i am also aware that the screens on these phones do break easily. On top of all of this, this phone has a tendency to crash and re-start itself for no apparent reason, and after a while, the battery life starts to deteriorate. although blackberry do offer a one year warranty for faults of this phone, i would advise you to take out insurance because these phones do break easily.
That saying 'you don't know what you got till it's gone' really sprung to mind when i ended my contract with BT and changed to a different internet supplier. If i could cancel my new contract now and go back to BT I would; simply because of the fact that this home hub is worth the extra couple of quid.
It's stylish sleek design doesn't look out of place on any computer desk or hallway table. The wireless connection is second to none, not just connecting with a laptop, but with a Smartphone to! I have had three different types of wireless routers and the BT home hub 2.0 is the only one where I haven't lost connection with my laptop a single time and can also receive a decent UMA service with my Smartphone.
Another great thing about the BT home hub 2.0 is that it has four Ethernet cable ports.. 4!!! In comparison to other routers from other companies 4 is a massive improve, both of my other routers (including my current one) have only had the one which is extremely frustrating if you wish to connect more than one computer via Ethernet cable.
Happy Gilmore is a comedy that follows the wannabe hockey player turned professional golfer Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler). Happy turns to golf when his long driving talent is spotted by ex-pro golfer Chubbs. Chubbs persuades Happy to start professional golf by telling him that Pro golfers make lots of money. This instantly appeals to Happy as his grandmother's house is currently being re-possessed and is in danger of being auctioned off for sale.
Happy endures a long learning curve in the form of professional golf tournaments and becomes more and more successful along the way and attracts a huge, crowd full of people who you wouldn't typically expect to see watching golf.
In his journey, Happy falls in love , Screams at a golf ball to get 'in its home', tells a partner golfer 'old man river, zip it or ill break your hip'(which lead to a fight between the pair), and acquires a homeless caddy who eats biscuits off of the floor!
This film is extremely funny and is a great watch for any comedy fan, especially for those Adam Sandler fans who wish to see him in his earlier career.
As a great music lover, I am always looking for a great quality sound in headphones... and I think I've found it! But wait it gets better, I even got a free beanie hat with it! The headphones easily connect and dis-connect to the beanie hat to allow you to be comfortable in both hot and cold conditions; this is a design which has been waiting to happen for years.
As far as sound quality goes, absolute top marks to the designers of these headphones because the quality is just second to none, the bass treble and mid-range are all in perfect proportion and it's just fantastic. Obviously with your chosen media device you may play around with the equaliser settings and fear a loss of sound quality on your chosen setting, however fear not as this fantastic piece of electrical engineering will not compromise the quality of the sound what so ever!
On top of all this they are of a stylish design, copy and paste the name of them yourself onto Google images as they do come in different colours.
I do strongly recommend these headphones, and although the price may be a setback for some people (I paid £64.99), shop around and your guaranteed to find them cheaper. Amazon is probably the best place as I have seen them for under £40 recently.
If any of you reading this do decide to buy these headphones, even if you're not into it, get hold of a drum and bass track and whack the bass up to full, it will blow your mind away with these beasts!
Just as i thought Val Mcdermid couldnt get any better... she has!
Fever of the bone is a gripping psychological thriller that will leave u wanting more from the brilliant mindset of the genius author Val McDermid. It is part of her Tony Hill series of Novels which follow psychological profilers (Tony Hill), life, at and out of work, and focuses on a very complicated relationship between him and his long term friend and colleague, DCI Carol Jordan.
As always, McDermid has more than one story line happening at the same time. In this novel there is a story of a cold case in which new evidence is discovered to potentially prosecute a man who allegedly murdered his wife and children, as well as a current case of a murderer who lures his teenage victims via a social networking site, as well as Dr Tony Hill and DCI Carols Jordan's search for information on Tony's father, which leads Tony into a deeper personal search about his own identity.
The way in which each of the separate stories unfold, is just genius and i seriously could not put this book down as soon as I read the first page. If you're looking for a truly brilliant psychological crime thriller, written by a mastermind who has written many alike this one, then Val McDermid's Fever of the bone has to be the book for you.
I discovered iceberg twice as I was walking past the perfume shop in my local shopping centre. I was looking at the small section in which the shop placed their current offers, as I was looking for a cheap fragrance, and after testing a few of these in the offers section I decided to go for iceberg twice.
I chose iceberg twice for two simple reasons; it was cheap and it smelled great! Obviously more expensive fragrances that most people only wear on special occasions, such as lactose red and Emporio Armani, have a much more potent, and richer smell, but there was no way on earth that i wouldn't buy 125 ml of this stuff for a tiny price of £12.99? If I had a higher budget to spend on one bottle of Eau de Toilette admittedly I wouldn't have purchased iceberg twice. However if you're looking for a slightly musky, but sweet, refreshing smell to wear daily then I strongly recommend that you buy iceberg twice.
