      Advantages

      • "Influences of all past material"
      • "Classic You Me At Six sound"
      • "Good Comeback"

      Disadvantages

      You Me At Six are back in full force!

      ~~Who Are They?~~
      You Me At Six are a British Rock Band from Surrey, formed of members Josh Franceschi (Lead Singer), Max Helyer (Rhythm Guitar and Backing Vocals), Matt Barnes (Bass Guitar), Chris Miller (Lead Guitar) and Dan Flint on Drums.
      Since forming in 2004 the boys have so far recorded three full length albums with great success as well as playing Reading Festival multiple times and headlining Wembley Arena.

      ~~Artwork~~
      Cavalier Youth depicts a sunset shining upon a grassy hill with the silhouette of a young boy running with a sword as if charging into battle.
      I personally think this depicts exactly what the album is about, chasing your dreams while you're young and keeping your imagination alive, devouring the cynics and showing the world what you're about.

      ~~Tracklisting + Song Opinions~~
      1. "Too Young To Feel This Old" 4:12
      -You Me At Six were only 15/16 when they start going for the dream of being a successful band meaning they lost a lot of their chance to just kids, this track is mainly about that and about them now trying to capture their youth and live in the moment, it's a medium tempo and although I love it, I think it's wrongly placed. 9/10

      2. "Lived a Lie" 3:23
      -This was the first single from the album and rightly so, it's an upbeat anthem about proving the disillusioned wrong. 10/10

      3. "Fresh Start Fever" 3:36
      -Second Single and again another catchy upbeat anthem, I think this song really depicts their new mature sound and it's a personal favourite of mine on the album. 10/10

      4. "Forgive and Forget" 4:00
      -My favourite song on the album! This song is full of dynamic changes, tight harmonies and the chorus will have you singing along the second time it comes around! 10/10

      5. "Room to Breathe" 3:59
      -This is generally everyone's else's go to song once having listened to the full album, personally I think this song incorporates a lot of other bands, one of the main ones being Young Guns, it's a good placement to build up excitement after the calming previous track. 9/10

      6. "Win Some, Lose Some" 3:56
      -Bit of Take Off Your Colours sound coming back for sure! 10/10

      7. "Cold Night" 4:05
      -Palm Muted guitar is such a beautiful sound, don't you agree? This is definitely the pop track of the album. 8/10

      8. "Hope for the Best" 2:50
      -The harmonies make this song, very catchy. 8/10

      9. "Love Me Like You Used To" 3:04
      -Bit of Hold Me Down coming out for this one, another song you'll be singing along to quickly! 9/10

      10. "Be Who You Are" 1:48
      -Another medium tempo song, it's short and sweet at less than two minutes long. 7/10

      11. "Carpe Diem" 3:14
      -Personally think this should be the 3rd single, Sinners Never Sleep in full force here. 9/10

      12. "Wild Ones" 5:02
      -The slowest song on the record, it makes for a perfect outro. 10/10

      I'M HAPPY FOR VANILLA COKES RETURN!

      For the past few years, I have counted myself lucky whenever I have spotted a can of Vanilla Coke when out and about, generally until quite recently the only places I could find it was American Sweet Shops i.e. Cyber Candy, or corner shops that branch out abit, though there aren't many of those about.
      It's a shame because personally I really like Vanilla Coke and just as I was when Coffee Pepsi was discontinued, I was upset to see this go when it did.
      For the past two years I have been following a page on Facebook entitled "BRING BACK VANILLA COKE" which is a campaign run by a group of people, it's thanks to them that out delicious drink is back, they created an online petition to get the attention of Coca-Cola and that they did, however for now Vanilla Coke is only a Limited Edition drink, which is a real shame, though hopefully popularity, will help keep it on the market!

      Ingredients
      ---------------------
      Carbonated Sugar
      Sugar
      Colour (Caramel E150d)
      Phosphoric Acid
      Natural Flavourings including Caffeine


      Taste Test
      ------------------
      Since Vanilla Coke has come back, I have found a lot of people trying it for the first time, after some how not having tried it when it first came out, a lot of them say "It just tastes like normal Coke" I completely disagree with this, if you drink Vanilla Coke and then compare it with Ordinary Coke you will find the taste to be very, very different. For me Vanilla Coke has a lovely taste, the Vanilla is not faint, thought not overpowering, although what I would say is trying it ice cold and trying it ordinary completely changes the taste, I would also agree that once the drink goes flat it does taste much more like regular Coke.
      I think this is a lot nicer compared to Cherry or Coke Zero, plus a lot more refreshing, but DRINK IT COLD.

      Origin
      ------------
      It was first introduced everywhere in 2002, however it ended up being discontinued soon after in both America and the UK, though I suppose you never realise how much you'll miss something until it's gone right? By popular demand it was brought back in America in 2005, this then caused UK retailers to have it imported making the UK public very happy when they saw it and now thanks to a Facebook Campaign, it has finally been reintroduced into the UK in 2013 with open arms.

      Conclusion
      ----------------
      As much as I love Coco-Cola I do wish they would stop messing us about, I love this drink and I hope to god it does not get discontinued again, it's one of the best beverages on the market and I highly recommend!

        Top Market Flavoured Water!

        I'm the kind of person who need's to be constantly drinking something throughout the day, I get dehydrated very easily and find it crazy how some people can go without a drink all day or who don't drink when eating, I just couldn't possibly do that, with that being said I don't exactly choose the healthiest things to be ingesting, generally drinking either Soda or Milkshakes, however I do occasionally go through bursts of strictly drinking Fruit Juice...
        I myself, absolutely love flavoured water however I get put off by how much flavour they put in, I find it a bit overpowering and normally end up watering it down to get the taste how I like it, though with Volvic I didn't have to do this...

        Bottle
        ----------------
        Volvic Water is available in 1.5l, 75cl and 50cl bottles, the bottles have a different colour cap and label for each flavour, making it easy to distinguish which one you're looking for.

        Flavours
        ---------------
        There are 6 flavours of Volvic Flavoured water, Tropical, Summer Fruits, Orange and Peach, Strawberry, Lemon and Lime and Blackcurrant as well as Sugar Free versions.

        Taste
        ----------
        I bought four bottles when they were on a 2-4-1 offer in Iceland, I picked up the Orange and Peach, Summer Fruits, Tropical and Lemon and Lime I found each to be really refreshing and not too clingy on my vocal cords.

        Tropical ~
        Although still very nice, I would probably say Tropical was my least favourite flavour, it tasted exactly like classical Tropical Juice only turned into water, meaning that the taste of Pineapple was a bit too overpowering for my liking, I would also say this was the flavour with the most flavour, so if unlike me you like your water to be very flavoured pick up this one.

        Orange and Peach ~
        This was by far my favourite flavour, the two fruits blended well together and weren't too strong, I think this is soon to be my favourite drink.

        Summer Fruits~
        The Volvic version of this flavour is a lot better than shall we say Perfectly Clear, again the flavour is not over powering nor is it too soft, this flavour is very refreshing with some ice.

        Lemon and Lime~
        Generally I'm not a big fan of Lemon and Lime flavoured products, however this surprised me and this was probably my second favourite flavour, very nice and not too tangy.

        Conclusion
        ----------------
        I definately recommend this product and will be drinking it regularly from now on, the best flavoured water on the market!

          Not impressed at all

          Obviously in this review I'm going to be speaking from my experience with this cat toy, however upon looking at other reviews I can see that it's had a much different affect on other people cat's as opposed to mine, so if you're thinking about this buying this toy and your cat if quite nervous...read this review, if your cat is confident and daring read one of the others.

          Short Summary of My Cat
          -----------------------------
          I've had my cat for about 7/8 years, I adopted her from a family after they decided to get rid of her because of a new mouth to feed in the family home, when picking her up it became apparent straight away that something had happened to her in the past, because me being a new person to meet, she was terrified and for the first week or so of having her at my house we had no idea where she was because she hid for the entire time. As time went on we bonded with her and she became part of our little family, however she has fallen out of the window twice (impressive right?) and both times her instant reaction was to hide under next door's shed, one of the times while strong thunder and lightning was hitting. We also believe something has happened to her in the past to do with a dog as although of course every cat is scared of dogs, her fear is different, she also limps on one of her legs and we believe this could have been to do with a dog.
          Hopefully this will give you an idea of what kind of Cat mine is...

          Why I Brought the Product
          -------------------------------
          Generally my cat loves chasing things, not mice or anything, but she loves the kind of toys where she has to tackle or chase something, so I instantly believed this would be a great toy for her, as it give her something to chase that she wouldn't be able to catch, adding to the fun of the game.

          My First Opinion of the Product
          -------------------------------
          Once I had put the batteries into the product, I was disheartened to realise that it doesn't really work that well in the day, I mean it makes sense, but what good is a toy you can only use at night?
          I will say I thought the images that were included in the product were cute, I had a Butterfly, a sign saying "I Love You", a Target, a Star and a dot, however these images may seem cute to me, what do they have to do with cats? Not every much lets be honest, Cats can't read, so it seemed a bit stupidly thought out.

          My Cats First Reaction to the Product
          --------------------------------------
          I first tried out Tilly (My Cat) with the product the night we got it, however, the reaction was not what I expected, after this product being described as a "toy" I was not impressed to have my cat run terrified out of the room, after having been sitting quite peacefully just because this laser was in front of her.

          After Trying a few more times
          --------------------------------
          After trying it out a few times, it was apparent that Tilly's first thought wasn't going to change, she now had a phobia (if you will) of this toy and this wasn't going to change, meaning I had wasted money on something I thought was going to bring my beloved cat joy.

          Price
          -----------
          £5 from Pet's at Home, apparently you can put a price on scaring your cat to death.

          Conclusion
          -------------
          I am very disappointed and very much considering getting a refund on this product, £5 to watch my poor cat run swiftly out of the room each time I try and set the toy into motion has upset me terribly, my advice would be DO NOT BUY.

            GO AND GET JELLY TOTS

            When I was a kid, I remember going to the sweet shop and instantly picking up a packet of jelly tots, as I've grown older I've obviously stopped having them as often, but recently I have refound my love for my previous childhood favourite, so I decided to write a review of them.

            Packaging
            --------------
            The packaging for Jelly Tots has changed during the years, from an Orange Packet to a now very bright Yellow Packet, I very much like the packaging, although I feel as though it makes it very more aimed at children as they would be attracted to the bright colours, they should seriously include us adults into their approach, we love Jelly Tots too!
            Something Negative I will say about the packaging is that with the new design it is much harder to open them without spilling the contents everywhere, whereas before it was easy to just open the packet.

            Ingredients
            ---------------
            Sugar
            Glucose syrup
            Modified starch
            Fruit juices 25% (Strawberry, Orange, Blackcurrant, Lime, Lemon)
            Acidity regulator (Trisodium citrate)
            Malic acid
            Citric acid
            Flavouring
            Lactic acid
            Colours (Anthocyanins, Copper complexes of chlorophyllins, Beta-carotene)

            What Are Jelly Tots?
            -----------------------
            Is heaven in your mouth a suitable answer? Probably not.
            Jelly Tots are circular sweets coated in sugar (totally part of your healthy diet!) that come in five flavours in each bag, Strawberry, Orange, Blackcurrant, Lime and Lemon, they have been around since 1967 and thankfully the recipe has never really been changed, generally people mostly like the Strawberry and Blackcurrant ones the best (me included) but the odd few love the taste of the Lemon and Lime flavour.

            Do they taste nice?
            ------------------------
            Absolutely I generally find I can't really pace myself when eating Jelly Tots, I have to eat the entire bag within a space of 5 minutes, they're just so nice and once you go through a phrase of eating them it's hard to stop.
            They're definately my favourite sweet, I just love the sweet taste and texture once your tongue has removed the sugar coating.

            Texture
            ------------
            When you first eat a Jelly tot the coating makes them appear hard and almost crunchy, but once the sugar coating is gone, they are soft and chewy and fruit flavour properly comes through.

            Conclusion
            --------------
            I am so glad to have refound my love for this delectable sweet and if you've never had Jelly Tots or haven't for while, go and do so, because they're amazing.

              Buy a different deodorant instead!

              When it comes to Deodorant or antiperspirant, I am very picky, I will generally look for is small enough to just slip into a purse and something that as well as helping me stay fresh, will also have a nice scent to it.
              To me this product did neither, and as much as I hate to be the only one posting a negative review, I feel as though I have to.

              The Bottle
              ------------------
              The product is held within the typical Deodorant bottle very similar to that of the "Sure" brand, although of course unlike with Sure which could almost be considered the most popular brand on the market, having the well known logo of Vaseline on the bottle without anyone decoration, makes the can appear very bland and boring.
              The spray applicator works very easily and has no faults. 5/10

              The Smell
              ------------------
              As I have previously mentioned, I believe that Deodorant should have a nice scent to it, this product certainly doesn't have the "X Factor" when it comes to it's smell and in my opinion smells almost like Baby Powder in a spray, which let's be honest isn't a scent you want to have hanging around you all day. 1/10

              Application
              ------------------
              When applying the product you have to spray very near for it work properly, which obviously stings, it also leaves white marks on your clothes, which isn't good for anyone. 5/10

              How long does it last?
              -------------------------
              To be fair the product "does what it says on the tin", it does last the full 24 hours, however you can generally get 48 hour deodorant that are of higher quality for around the same price. 7/10

              Price
              ----------
              Looking around I have found that the product generally retails at around £1.60-£2.00. 6/10

              Conclusion
              --------------
              In conclusion I would say as much I love the rest of Vaseline's products they definately need to take another look at thing one and in my opinion, you would be much better off buying a different product.

                an Epic conclusion!

                I would like to start this review off by saying that this will be written in a way that's a lot more suitable and easier to understand if you've read all of "Breaking Dawn" the book, so if you haven't I would suggest not reading this review as there will be spoilers and I know how annoying that can be if you don't know the story yet, this just appears to me as the easiest way to write this review, I apologise for any inconvenience. :)
                I first read Twilight shortly after the movie came out back in 2008, I bought all the books together and read them within about two weeks, I find them to be very well written and always left on a cliffhanger, which in my mind makes them deserve all the credibility that they get. I think it's amazing how far The Twilight Saga has come in comparison to say Harry Potter, of course they aren't as successful but they've had the same impact, creating a following that is left anxiously awaiting each film and creating the famous drama of Team Edward VS Team Jacob, (I'll always be on Team Jacob, who could resist Taylor Lautner?) I am always concerned when it comes to "Epic Conclusions" as in the past I find they tend to get over hyped only to leave the audience feeling let down, but honestly Breaking Dawn Part 2 proved to be exactly what it should have been an EPIC conclusion.

                Plot
                *************
                We continue the plot of Breaking Dawn straight from where we left off in "Breaking Dawn Part 1" with Bella slowly opening her eyes as a new-born vampire. Compared to her average human life Bella now finds herself with heightened senses, bloodred irises and the ability to block other vampires powers from harming either her or whoever she chooses to protect. We are next introduced to Renesmee, Bella and Edward's half human/half vampire child who turns out to have a gift of her own, she is able to show who ever she touches images, as a special way of communicating. We also become aware that Jacob has imprinted on Renesmee, meaning no matter how much he loved Bella before, he would now go to the ends of the earth just to compensate for this child, Bella is unhappy about this at first, but comes to terms with the fact there's nothing she can do after much persuading.
                Renesmee's growth rate is much faster that normal humans, meaning she grows to 6 years old after what I'm guessing to be about 6 months. One day when Jacob, Bella and Renesmee are out in the fields catching snowflakes, Irina sees them and misjudges the situation believing Renesmee to have been turned as a child, an "Immortal" which is a felony in the Vampire world, instead of choosing to find out, Irina chooses to instead inform the Volturi right away, a mistake that would later cost her, her life.
                Once Alice envisions the Volturi coming after the Cullens, they all face a huge battle against time to prove to the terrifying and powerful Vampire Authority that Renesmee is not a threat, will they do so in time?

                Noel Fisher as Vladimir

                Billy Burke as Charlie Swan
                Alex Rice as Sue Clearwater

                Bella as a Vampire
                ****************
                Now, as someone who has followed this franchise from the very beginning, I have to say I expected a lot more from the portrayal of Bella as a Vampire, I'm not saying it was necessarily bad, it just wasn't up to scratch in my eyes. Before this film came out many people edited pictures of Bella Swan to make her look how they thought her character incorporated into Vampire form would appear and honestly their effects were exactly the same if not better than how Bella appeared on screen, though I can say that the way they portrayed her enhanced vision was very clever and made up for the lack of change in appearance.
                Another thing I have to comment on is how Bella's bloodlust was portrayed, I'm sorry but this for me slightly made a joke of Bella's character and although I'm sure Kristen tried her best the way she made herself chase after animals and people looked more comical than frightening, if she came after my blood I would have probably just broke down in hysterics.

                Renesmee
                ************
                The portayal of Renesmee has caused some controversy as a lot of people think the idea of 18 year old Jacob being in love with a 6 year old is disgusting and wrong (which it is), but the makers of the movie have quite cleverly found a way to make it so we could see them together properly in the final scenes of the movie with Renesmee being fully grown, a scene that without it would have caused havoc between the "Twi-hards".
                Although the portrayal of Renesmee's "gift" is brilliant, there's really not enough of it, being one of main attributes of the story to me there should definately have been more scenes when you get a grip of the gift in it's entirety.
                One final point I would like to make is the way Charlie doesn't find it at all strange how quickly Renesmee has grown, there's something that's just not quite right about it.

                Jacob's Imprinting
                ***************
                This was a very important factor in both the film and the book, though I think (and I may be wrong) that they introduced it too early in the film, it was one of the first scenes which for me was a bit too sudden, I believe Jacob's acting was brilliant in this role, he managed to pull it off so he came across in a loving way without appearing creepy, though once again I have to critique Kristen's acting...when "Bella" found out Jacob had imprinted on Renesmee she was meant to go crazy at him and once again be frightening and once again her anger was just comical, maybe anger is an emotion Kristen needs to take some lessons on.

                Overall Acting
                ****************
                Overall I would say the cast did an excellent job, the actress playing Renesmee did exceptionally well and I wouldn't be surprised if this film has definitely earned her some more roles. For me the best acting part of the entire film has to be the battle scene, it was the most emotional scene and really caused havoc among the audience watching.

                Battle Scene
                *****************
                Finally I am able to talk about the best part of the movie, the Battle Scene, after gathering their witnesses and gathering outside in a snow-covered setting the Cullen family brace themselves for the arrival of the Volturi and their imminent death. This scene holds a lot of surprises including almost everyone being killed and Carlilse's head being chopped off, only to discover that it was just an image Alice created to stop the Volturi from going ahead with their plans. For the fans watching who haven't read the book (or forgotten most of it like me) you will be very shocked by this amazing scene, at first I thought the producers had completely changed the ending only to later have a "what the hell" moment when realising the truth, if this scene had been made any differently the film would have been ruined.

                Conclusion
                ******************
                In Conclusion I would say made up your own mind about The Twilight Franchise's epic finalé but in my eyes it's done well, though it will still forever walk in the footsteps of Harry Potter.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Go and watch Sinister instead!

                  Re-posted as it was locked before because I was forced to post it in Paranormal Activity 3 as this wasn't available yet, but since it now, I thought I'd re-post it, so here you go :)

                  Tonight I made the unforgivable decision of choosing to go and watch Paranormal Activity 4 as opposed to seeing Silent Hill: Revelation, seeing as it's Halloween I thought it would be a good idea to go and watch a scary movie as it would create a creepy atmosphere and just make Halloween a bit more fun, how wrong I was...once we arrived in the Cinema I was surprised to see it was completely packed, even making it impossible for me sit with my family as there were no four seats together, this forced us to split up. I was sat in front of possibly the most annoying people ever, as the film started I was afraid they were going to talk throughout the feature but luckily they calmed down after a while. As the lights went down and the trailers came on I was sad to witness a longer version of the trailer for Silent Hill: Revelation, silently hoping my choice of film wouldn't be regretful, I promised myself I would go and see my first choice at a later date.
                  As the film began and we all positioned ourselves for what was supposedly going to be a frightful 2 hours,
                  we were shown scenes from Paranormal Activity 2 and then told how "Katie and Hunter's whereabouts is currently still unknown", we were then introduced to the family who would be undergoing the "Paranormal Activity", the family consisted of Alex (The main protagonist of the film), Wyatt (the adopted younger brother), Doug (the slightly less important father) and Holly (the oblivious mother), from the start it seems as though this is your average family, the brother plays football, the sister slightly antagonises him, the father is late and the mother is caring, though as the story continues we realise something different has to occur, otherwise what would be the point in seeing it right? We witness Alex and her best friend/crush Ben back at the family's home, while messing about they decide to go outside and explore the garden only to find the neighbour's son (Robbie) sitting in their playhouse, thinking nothing really of it Alex guides Robbie back home only to be awoken later that night by the sounds of sirens arriving at the neighbours home, the next day it becomes apparent that Robbie's mum has been fled to hospital for unknown reasons, forcing the Nelson family to look after him for the next few days.
                  From the word go it is obvious that Robbie is a very odd child, he is very quiet and generally just gives off a creepy persona, as the film continues we watch as Robbie befriends Wyatt, disapproved by Alex although Holly seems completely fine with it. In the first scene where we get to see Robbie's character we witness Alex and Ben enter the living room to find Wyatt playing Xbox Kinect while Robbie watches supposedly because his "friend" is already playing with Wyatt, Ben turns to look at the screen to find an avatar being controlled by thin air, the beginning of the "Paranormal Activity" perhaps?
                  After this strange occurrence and a few other supposedly "scary" scenes, Alex discovers that Ben has found a way to make his Laptop's webcam record all activity on the webcam, so she asks him to help her set up surveillance camera's on all of the family's laptop's, which are positioned in Alex's room, Wyatt's Room, the Kitchen and the Living room.
                  Throughout the next few nights of recording it becomes a common occurrence for Robbie to get up during the night to talk to his "friend", Alex questions him about it but receives no reply.
                  One day Alex comes home to find the house "deserted" as she makes her way upstairs she finds her brothers toys laid out in a line leading to his room, as she follows them she finds her brothers secret cupboard containing a ominous sleeping set-up and an unknown person, Alex hears a noise so decides to make her way downstairs only to almost be crushed by a chandelier which is supposedly caused by Robbie who suddenly appears on the landing. This sparks Alex's determined mind to prove that Robbie is causing the "Paranormal Activity", though both her parents believe the fault came from the chandelier not being installed properly.
                  Another strange occurrence is when both Ben and Alex discover that Robbie has drawn symbols all over Wyatt's body resembling a circle inside of a square, they later look into the recorded footage to find that Robbie has also drawn this in a sandpit, they research the symbol only to discover that it is a Hyptusides symbol (I have no idea how you spell it) meaning fertility that is used in Pagan rituals to prepare a male child's soul for possession (Obviously), when they ask Wyatt's about the symbol he tries to remain quiet but later tells Alex that the symbol was to "make him ready".
                  A few nights later we witness Wyatt make his way downstairs only to start screaming "I'm not Hunter! My name's not Hunter!" at thin air while a "ghostly" figure creeps towards him, this encounter is interrupted however by Doug investigating all the noise.
                  In one scene we encounter Alex investigating Robbie's house after realising lots of parked vehicles over there, she peers through the gates only to flash her light onto a woman's face who says "hello" causing most of the audience to jump back in fright, I however found it hilarious.
                  The next crucial scene has to be when Alex is left at home to babysit both Robbie and Wyatt, only to discover they have run across to Robbie's supposedly "deserted" home, Alex goes after the two boys, angry and frustrated she follows them into the house to find almost everything covered in sheets and plastic, the beds have no mattresses and the house itself generally looks as though no one lives inside of it (very strange), she next comes across Robbie's mother, discovering she is well again (still no explanation of what was wrong with her) and leaves Robbie behind before rushing back to the house with her brother.
                  The night after Robbie has returned home Wyatt takes a bath only to be dragged underneath the water for at least five minutes, he later comes back up with no visual side effects, but when Holly comes to help him out he appears very quiet and distant, the same night we watch him walk into Alex's bedroom and levitate her sleeping body, which to be fair, looks very realistic, ( or as real as you can yet).
                  In the last scene of the movie we watch as Ben arrives at the family home after discovering more information about the symbol, unfortunately he is unable to find Alex so decides to bring up the information on her laptop, only to have his neck broken by "Katie", his body is then dragged into Alex's closet. We then see Holly return home, only to also find the house deserted, Katie throws her body around with a supernatural force and then takes her corpse to an unknown location. We then watch in "horror" as Alex and her dad return to the home only to discover Ben's body and realise it's too late, they rush over to Robbie's house, for Doug to be pulled away from Alex by Katie, Alex runs after him but fails to find her father, Katie then races at Alex with a demonic face, as Alex's attempts to escape she finds her brother who she pleads with to run away with her to much grief, she then turns and is faced with a crowd of the undead, (Wait a minute, where have we seen that before) as the suspense kills the audience the title's roll.

                  Cast
                  Kathryn Newton as Alex Nelson
                  Matt Shively as Ben
                  Brady Allen as Robbie Featherston
                  Aiden Lovekamp as Wyatt Nelson
                  Alexondra Lee as Holly Nelson
                  Stephen Dunham as Doug Nelson
                  Katie Featherston as Katie Featherston

                  Special Effects
                  Apart from a few ghostly shadows, there was nothing special about the effects, you can easily tell this film had a small budget.

                  In conclusion, I would say that instead of seeing this movie, you should just go and watch Most Haunted as you're much more likely to get scared, this movie personally for me, left me in fits of giggles throughout, when I should have been shielding my eyes. Another frustrating thing is the fact that it is supposely a sequel to Paranormal Activity 2, which I haven't seen (I've only seen Paranormal Activity 3), why make a sequel after making a 3rd movie already and finally why make the ending almost identical to the third movie?

                    Disadvantages

                    Buy Lynx Temptation instead!

                    I first discovered this deodorant through a male friend, he used to wear it constantly and I always liked the smell of it, so eventually I got myself a can of it, not much more to say really...

                    Smell
                    *****************
                    The smell is very masculine (not very helpful when you're a girl) but can also be complimenting to a girl if not worn heavily, the smell is kinda of musky with a sort of fruity twist but although being a nice smell at first whiff I have found it can become kind of sickening over time.

                    Bottle
                    *****************
                    The bottle is very recognisable, classic to Lynx's design it sports a green customisation and is very light and beneficial to people who like to carry their deodorant around with them, the bottle looks young without looking childish, it's main factor is most likely the supposed "cool" look about it.

                    What's it made from?
                    *****************
                    Alcohol Denat, Butane, Isobutane, Propane, Parfum, Propylene, Glycol, Polyaminopropyl Biguanide Stearate, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene and Linalool, now personally I have no idea what any of those ingredients are, but that's what apparently makes up Lynx Twist so there you go.

                    How Long Does It Last?
                    *****************
                    It normally depends on the person but generally Lynx should last a good 12 hours, though a lot of people feel the need to constantly refresh the smell throughout the day.

                    Other Products
                    *****************
                    Lynx has a wide variety of different deodorants ranges from all types of smells my personal favourites would be Lynx Temptation and their first Female Deodorant Lynx Effect, though many people would say Lynx Africa as it seems to be the most popular among people, Lynx have also bought out Shower Gels and Shampoos to accompany their Deodorants, which quite frankly are much nicer than the original product.

                    Conclusion
                    *****************
                    In conclusion I would say that you can't go wrong with a bit of Lynx but make sure to choose one that's complimenting and suits your personality and as for Lynx Twist, I would definitely say consider a different variety as this one is just too overpowering.

                    Disadvantages

                    Put it on your list of things to buy if/when you win the lottery!

                    I, along with multiple other people am a music enthusiast, I can't go a day without listening to music and if I forget my headphones or iPod I will be in a general bad mood for the rest of the day, music is my passion and "my life" so to speak and so as you can properly tell I am in need of decent earphones/headphones on a regular basis and although that may sound like an easy thing to find, it's really, really not.

                    Over the past two years I have been using my headphones a lot more after obtaining a proper iPod and finding easier ways to locate music to put onto my device, but I haven't used just one pair of headphones, oh no, I've probably gone through at least 25 pairs all in all, makes such as Sony, Apple, Skullcandy, Signalex and more, no matter how nicely I treat them it just seems adamant that I'm going to break every pair.

                    Now don't get me wrong, I understand earphones aren't made to last forever, but I go through them way quicker than anybody else 2 weeks - 1 month and ½ as opposed to about 6 months, that was until investing in a pair of Dr Dre. Beats, I've had mine for about 3 months now and have found them much louder, much more sustainable and much easier to handle.

                    What Are They?
                    *****************
                    Dr Dre. Monster Beats are a type of in-ear headphones they were designed and produced by Dr Dre. as part of his exclusive headphone range, first surfacing about a year ago, Dr Dre. is the first to introduce a new trend within celebrities, inspiring them to create ranges of their own, big names such as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Usain Bolt, Ludacris and many more.

                    Design
                    ******************
                    Beats are renowned for being stylish and I have to say I'm inclined to agree, compared to the design of most earphones with their bland white or black cables and non intrepid customisation, Beats choose to venture down a different path, one of elegance and class. Normally that would a very hard thing to class a pair of earphones as but Beats manage it, with their bright red cable and simple black base used to enhance their logo, they somehow make you stand out from the rest when wearing their product.

                    Cable
                    *******************
                    Now generally there are two types of cable that earphone designers can chose to use the classic one with two separate cables all the way down, covered very slightly with plastic, or the ones I'm more in favour of that Beats have chosen to use, the second choice with two separate cable's until a point where the two cables and then covered by the same piece of plastic, this designed helps for less tangling in your pocket, and make it much easier if you (like me) chose to wear your headphones under you clothes.
                    Dr Dre. Beats sport a 1m Tomato Red cable, which as well as being very different, it has also become a very recognisable fashion statement.

                    Are they Comfortable?
                    ********************
                    Don't you just hate that? When you buy a pair of earphones that work great and look stylish but leave your ears feeling very uncomfortable, I know I do. Beats opt for the comfortable option, ensuring a comfortable listening experience due to the soft bud that cover the speakers and specific design to make each earphone suitable for either your right or your left ear, the only reason you'll get earache from these earphones is for having them turned up too loud!

                    Logo
                    ********************
                    In my opinion (which this review is based on) Logos are very important, it's what represents your company and what can make or break your business idea, but Dr Dre. definitely hasn't gone wrong with the logo for his headphones although just simply being a Red "b" on a metal background, there's something strangely deceptive about it, it looks futuristic and very impressive.

                    Sound Quality
                    ********************
                    I can't possibly publish this review without discussing the main factor, do the earphones produce good sound?
                    Absolutely, I know it sounds cliqué but these earphones really do make you feel like you're actually at a live gig, especially if you close your eyes and just concentrate on the music. I always have to have my music turned up to 100% volume, which although isn't healthy for my ears I am definitely able to do with this product.

                    Sustainability
                    *********************
                    In my personal experience so far, I have had absolutely no problems with my earphones, they're still intact and don't look as though that's going to change anytime soon, but, I do have a friend who also has a pair of the same headphones and a few weeks ago we went to a gig and left our bags on the stage (one of which had her earphones in), people keep walking over our bags to stage dive and unfortunately for her, resulted in her earphones being stepped on and broken. So, although they are very sustainable, don't take them to any gigs with you!

                    Price
                    **********************
                    When looking on the Dr Dre. Beats official website, you will these earphones priced at £119.95, but if you look around the internet a bit on Amazon or Ebay you can find them a hell of a lot cheaper than that, or hey go to Camden Market!

                    Other Products
                    **********************
                    Dr Dre. with help from the likes of David Guetta, will.i.am, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber has produced many different types of both Headphones and Earphones the most popular being the original headphones which are made in various different colours and these earphones.

                    Conclusion
                    **********************
                    When buying a pair of earphones next, I would definitely say pick yourself up a pair of Beats, but I also understand that for a pair of earphones, they are rather expensive, so next time you win the lottery go and buy this product but until then, feel free to go into HMV, because they regularly have Beats set up for people to get a taste of.

                      Disadvantages

                      This Magazine is definitely worth a 5 K! rating!

                      After being an avid Kerrang! reader for the past 3 years, I thought I would share my thoughts on this wonderful music magazine, one of which has introduced me to many of my favourite bands, filled my room with various posters and is currently taking up quite a bit space in my room, as I just don't have the heart to throw any of them away.

                      Name
                      ***********
                      When trying to search online it is nigh-on impossible to find out the exact meaning of the magazine's name, but in the past what I have always been told, is that it stems from the sound a guitar makes when picked and although I suppose that kind of makes sense, don't take my word for it, "Kerrang!" could mean long-haired scary people for all I know!

                      Cover
                      ************
                      Like almost every magazine Kerrang! has a set layout that it uses for every issue and although this sounds boring, they have a way of making every issue interesting and separate from the rest. The cover will always sport a certain band as it's main image, this band will always be the one involved in the 3-page interview inside, as well as their infamous logo sitting boldly behind, they will then also advertise the 5-10 posters which will be featured inside the magazine and which other bands you can expect to be featured throughout the issue.
                      The Kerrang! cover always promises to be a eye-catching one, delivering themes to accompany holidays and Rock Festivals as well as occasional free CDs.

                      Contents Page

                      Most magazine's contents pages are nothing special, simply telling you what's inside, but Kerrang! go a bit further than that and advertise a wonder competition each week to win things such as signed guitars, merch bundles, VIP Gig Tickets, Festival Tickets and so much more as well as including a letter from the lovely editor of Kerrang! James McMahon, who addresses the letter on a personal level and ensures readers understand what they're about to get themselves into by stepping into the world of Kerrang! Magazine.
                      *If you are a Kerrang! reader and have twitter I would very much suggest you follow James, he's always asking for opinions on posters and who should be included in the issue as well as sometimes running exclusive Twitter competitions, plus his tweets are just generally hilarious!

                      **************
                      Before you get concerned, don't worry I'm not going to talk about every single page included in a general issue of Kerrang! I'm just outlining some of the key components that make this mag great, so please stick around!
                      Kerrang's feedback page is probably my favourite page in the magazine, it's something that only Kerrang! do in the musical magazine department and really gives readers a chance to get into the magazine themselves and express their love for bands or certain features that the magazine has produced. For example, in looking at the issue of Kerrang! in front of me (ISSUE NO 1439), on the feedback page I can see pictures of fans with Gustav Wood, Austin Carlile and Lower Than Atlantis, as well as a picture of a specially made Green Day Cake and letters from Kerrang! fans, some people would find that boring and uninteresting but me personally enjoys the page very much.

                      Tweet of the Week
                      ****************

                      *My now favourite band Yashin, who I've seen live 4 times, have been showcased on the Kerrang! introducing page.

                      Pandora
                      *****************
                      Oh Pandora, I can't possibly write a Kerrang! review without mentioning this Kerrang! goddess, the queen of sarcasm and the magazine's personal prankster, Pandora is the main character of the magazine's comic strip, which often has gueststar roles from numerous Rockstars and always promises to put a smile on your face.

                      Three-Page Feature
                      ******************
                      Now, no magazine would be complete without a three-page spread and Kerrang! always put out and bring readers an interview with one of their favourite bands, for instance the one I have beside me is Bullet For My Valentine who are bracing themselves to make a huge 2013 comeback, while releasing their new album and touring all over the country, Kerrang! realises this is a band readers would like to know more about and accompanies the spread with a photoshoot, giving the fangirls something to fangirl over.

                      Gig Reviews
                      ******************
                      For those of us who aren't able to attend the gig's of our favourite bands, Kerrang! are right there to tell us exactly what we missed, isn't that nice of them?
                      With each of these reviews Kerrang! also supplies their personal "K! rating" which will either infuriate you or make you love the magazine even more, for example a few weeks back my favourite band Set It Off were reviewed in Kerrang! for the first time and were described as "A Panic! At The Disco tribute act" and also received a "3 K! rating" seeing as they're desperately trying to make it big and Kerrang! could have helped them if they'd have given them a positive review, this upset me very much, but there have also been numerous times where they have praised other bands I love as well as giving me a different perspective of gigs I have attended myself.

                      Posters
                      *******************
                      You can't really go wrong with posters can you? Over the years my room has gone from having blank walls, to being cover in what some people would describe as "scary musicians", filled with My Chemical Romance, Black Veil Brides, Avenged Sevenfold and All Time Low posters, not exactly what you would guess from my last review huh? Kerrang! as well as adding themes to the cover, also occasionally adds themes to the posters, the main one being Halloween, what can you expect from a Rock magazine I guess?
                      The posters included in the Halloween issue sport numerous musicians dressed up as characters from their favourite Horror Movies, such as The Ring, Saw and Ghostbusters, which is a nice touch and makes the posters much more interesting to look at.

                      Album Reviews
                      ********************
                      As much as dooyoo is a great place for finding reviews on albums, if you want a short and snappy, yet informative review of the latest albums, Kerrang! has got you covered, each week as well as review local gigs, they will also review albums and occasionally films, giving you a K! rating and giving you an idea of whether or not it's something you would want to go and check out yourself.

                      Gig Guide
                      ********************
                      Now, I live somewhere, where most bands don't bother coming anywhere near, normally the nearest gigs to me are in London which is quite hard to get on a regular basis, but I am fortunate enough for bands to visit Brighton, I can instantly know about it from looking at the Gig Guide, a three page spread informing me of all the upcoming tours and gigs around me and around the country!

                      Price
                      ********************
                      Unless it's a particularly special issue, every week Kerrang! is £2.20, which honestly is pretty cheap for what you get inside.

                      Conclusion
                      ********************
                      After buying this Magazine for almost 3 years, I've never been disappointed, I'm the first to know all music news and the first to know which bands are playing a gig near me, in my opinion this is the best magazine of it's kind on the market right now, so hurry up and buy a subscription to Kerrang! they'll throw in a free t-shirt if you do! :)
                      *Sorry for this review being so long, it's longer than I intended for it to be, but I think I touched on some vital points and hopefully it informed you readers more about Kerrang!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Take it home and make an opinion of it!

                        One Direction, where do I start?
                        I suppose you could say that they are basically the pretty boy equivalent to Marmite, if you don't like them you absolutely can't stand them, but if you even like them just a tiny bit, you somehow end up becoming obsessed with every inch of there existence, it's pretty amazing really.
                        One Direction were first discovered on the UK Singing Competition "The X Factor" where they placed third after being beaten by Rebecca Ferguson and Matt Cardle and although normally this would have set them back, the group itself consisting of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan have gone onto to sell 4 times the albums sales and gain worldwide success, unlike the two X Factor Winners.
                        Now after much success from their first album "Up All Night" which was released November 2011, they are now releasing their second full length "Take Me Home" almost exactly one year later, bringing in songwriting collaborations from Ed Sheeran, Mcfly and Jake Gosling.

                        I personally absolutely couldn't stand "1D" at first, you see I'm more into the Rock/Pop-Punk Genre, so to me they were "just another boyband" and honestly they still aggravate me a bit, the fact that they don't write most of their songs and that they still believe they have "the best fans in the world" even though their fans regularly attack and hate on other people and artists and pick out personal points in their life that are very hard for them to talk about, but they have grown on me a lot, throughout the last 6 months I have seen how much happiness they bring to people, their music really can put a smile on people's faces and all five of them are such lovely guys.
                        About a week ago I was on Facebook when I saw One Direction advertising their free Take Me Home stream, which was going to be available for two days to give fans a chance to listen to the album and decide whether or not they wanted to buy it. I clicked on the link and was directed to iTunes, where I found the stream and thought, "Hey why not? It won't be that bad and I can be the first to review it on dooyoo" so after listening to this album at least 5 times, here is my review of One Direction's "Take Me Home".

                        Album Cover
                        ***************
                        There's not much I can say about the Album Cover as it is a picture as opposed to Artwork but what I will say is that it sums up what this album and One Direction are all about, fun and mischief, in the picture they're all smiling and working together to try and climb onto the telephone box, it just represents their whole image and message, which I think is nice.

                        Track By Track Review
                        ********************
                        LIVE WHILE WE'RE YOUNG (5/5)
                        -"Live While We're Young" is not only the first track on the album but is also the first official single, after being released a few weeks ago accompanied with a music video depicting One Direction throwing a pool party and just overall messing about and enjoying themselves. For me, I think this song is kind of a teen anthem, it's basically saying have fun while you can, because one day you won't get the chance to relax how you are right now because you'll be thrown into work or adult life.
                        The song itself is very catchy (It's been in my head ever since it came out) it has a simple bass line, which accompanies the repetitive lyrics in a good way, while each of the boys share an equal part in making this introductory song one to remember.

                        KISS YOU (5/5)
                        -From the first five seconds of "Kiss You" we can instantly tell that this track is destined to exhibit a much faster tempo compared to "Live While We're Young", with Zayn bringing in the first vocals we are introduced to a track that is much more sampled based, sporting lots of beats and rhythms created on machines (not that that's a bad thing) and an upbeat track that is possibly the fastest track we've seen from One Direction yet, the boys use a clever technique in the chorus, separating the last word of each line and although it might not sound like much it really gives the song a unique edge. Honestly this is probably my second favourite song on the entire album.

                        LITTLE THINGS (5/5)
                        -Aw "Little Things", now if you're a One Direction fan you will recall that last year Ed Sheeran stepped in and gave the song "Moments to Harry Styles for One Direction's first album "Up All Night" after it being recorded onto an album of songs he was never going to use, well he's back and better than ever folks, although this time allowing the boys to sing a song that's a lot more personal to him. Sheeran first wrote the song when he was 17, claiming "It was written about the best things about someone, kind of like the things you wouldn't expect." Well I can safely say One Direction have not disappointed when it's comes to making this song meaningful and sweet, keeping it acoustic and unplugged the boys give us a song that I'm sure will be serenaded throughout the world to loved ones and partners, with such lyrics as :
                        "I know you've never loved the sound of your voice on tape
                        You never want to know how much you weigh
                        You still have to squeeze into your jeans
                        But you're perfect to me"
                        Soon to be the second single off of "Take Me Home", this song is sure to make you smile.

                        C'MON C'MON (2/5)
                        -"C'mon C'mon" is probably my least liked song on the album, there's something about it that seems a bit as if it's been thrown together with no real thought, the beat is very basic and lyrics are very so-so, just my opinion but honestly whenever I listen to "Take Me Home" now I always skip this track, don't take my advice though, you may love it.

                        LAST FIRST KISS (4/5)
                        -Although still not at the same standard as the first three tracks on the album, "Last First Kiss" is definitely one of the best songs on the album. Just as they have done with "Little Things" One Direction choose to make this song almost solidly acoustic throughout the verse with only a sampled drumbeat to accompany the guitar, the tempo then picks up for the chorus allowing this song to be half ballad, half pop.
                        "I wanna be last yeah
                        Baby let me be your, let me be your last first kiss
                        I wanna be first yeah
                        Wanna be the first to take it all the way like this
                        And if you only knew I wanna be last yeah
                        Baby let me be your last, your last first kiss"
                        The song itself is basically about wanting to be someone's first love. (That's how I see it anyway).

                        HEART ATTACK (5/5)
                        -Now we come to my personal favourite song on "Take Me Home", I don't what is it exactly, whether it's the exciting chorus, the fast tempo or the way it's sung, but there's something about this song that I just really really like. (It's also perfect lip-syncing material, not that I do a lot of that...)
                        Almost the entirety of the first verse and bridge is sung by Zayn, or at least that's what it sounds like, who sounds very meaningful throughout the lyrics and cleverly changes into different tones throughout, then what sounds like Harry joins in for the chorus, providing us with a very energetic and fun chorus that you just can't help but sing along to.
                        "And I'm like oww
                        Never thought it'd hurt so bad
                        Getting over you
                        And oww
                        You're giving me a heart attack
                        Looking like you do
                        Cause you're all I ever wanted
                        Thought you would be the one that's ow
                        Giving me a heart attack getting over you"
                        One of the better heartbreak songs of 2012 if you ask me.

                        ROCK ME (4/5)
                        -After causing gaining themselves a lot of enemies throughout the rock community due to their "lovely" fans, I have a feeling that this song is going to rub a lot of people up the wrong way and will cause a lot of people to claim that "They're trying to be rocky" but they're not. In this track, the boys have chosen to add a classic Rock N Roll beat very similar to the one used on "We Will Rock You" by Queen, to do something slightly unexpected and to possibly relate back to Harry Style's roots after previously being in a rock band himself (White Eskimo).
                        The song itself is a pop/rock ballad, containing lots of different genre's of music all rolled into one, without stepping away from the classic One Direction sound.
                        Definitely one to be remembered.

                        CHANGE MY MIND (5/5)
                        -Aw, another one of my favourites.
                        "Change My Mind" is yet another ballad and yet another acoustic, but it's a beautiful song, in itself it's very calm and relaxes the mood of anyone listening to it. I wouldn't be surprised if this track get's forgotten about a lot throughout reviews of this album as it's placed so far down in the tracklisting which is a shame, but hopefully One Direction will be smart and release this as the third single.
                        Acoustic is honestly what they do best.
                        "But baby if you say you want me to stay
                        I'll change my mind
                        Cause I don't wanna know I'm walking away
                        If you'll be mine
                        Won't go, won't go
                        So baby if you say you'll want me to stay, stay for the night
                        I'll change my mind."
                        A sad breakup song, "Change My Mind" is about not wanting the relationship to be over even though it's obvious the other person no longer shares the same feelings.

                        I WOULD (4/5)
                        -Now let's see, we've spoken about Ed Sheeran's collaboration, but I'm sure there was someone else involved...who was it? Mc-something? Mc-Mc-Mc-MCFLY! Of course, "I Would" was written by the amazingly talented and worldwide established boyband known as Mcfly, consisting of Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter, Danny Jones and Harry Judd.
                        Now, when looking back on the album, I forgot how much of a good song this is, it's definitely the last good one before the songs start getting less impressive, this song when first listening to it, will make you think you've heard it before somewhere, it tells the story of a boy pondering after a girl way out of his league (not that that's a problem for any of the One Direction boys), forever wishing to be noticed and get the girl he keeps dreaming about. This is set to be yet another wonderful teen anthem.

                        OVER AGAIN (3/5)
                        -"Over Again" is the second songwriting collaboration from Ed Sheeran, and even without knowing that before listening to it, you're are easily able to tell. The boys have chosen to imitate (not in a bad way) Sheeran's unique vocal style to really make Ed proud and although it's a nice song, the lyrics sometimes get a little bit too silly such as "I can make your tears fall down like the showers that are British" which isn't at all 1D's fault but personally puts me off the song slightly.

                        BACK FOR YOU (2/5)
                        -Possibly the worst song on "Take Me Home", this track is extremely repetitive and kind of a let down compared to the rest, sporting a simplistic beat and generic vocals.

                        THEY DON'T KNOW ABOUT US (4/5)
                        -Although being the second to last song on the album, this track gives us hope that the last track will be a good one, it refreshes the classic boyband sound that the likes of "The Backstreet Boys" and "NSync" have documented in Music History, it's a nice thing to witness on such a recent boyband's record but it's hopefully a sound they will chose to include more of in the future.
                        They don't know about the things we do
                        "They don't know about the I love you's
                        But I bet you if they only knew
                        They will just be jealous of us
                        They don't know about the up all night's
                        They don't know I've waited all my life
                        Just to find a love that feels this right"
                        The song itself is about secret relationships, which let's be honest is something One Direction are going to have to go through a lot of.

                        SUMMER LOVE (4/5)
                        -The Album ends on a high note, with a song that's ironically about goodbyes to wave off the end to "Take Me Home", the song is a lovely acoustic song, very slow and calm, a chance for us to properly hear the boys lovely voices one final time.

                        Conclusion
                        **************
                        This album proves exactly how much One Direction have grown since being thrown together on "The X Factor", it is now easy to see the bond they have formed and the sound they have created together, this album is 10x better than "Up All Night" and is only the start of what I hope will be One Direction's very long and very successful career.

                          Disadvantages

                          Buy this Toothbrush if you're serious about your teeth, but if not don't worry!

                          Unfortunately for me, my teeth are very sensitive which doesn't bide well when trying to use your sturdy, average non-electronic toothbrush, so about a year ago I decided on a whim to buy myself one of these, as I had seen many adverts and I gathered it would help my teeth a lot more.

                          Price
                          I bought my toothbrush when it was on offer, and even then it was £100, I believe it is anything from £90-£140.

                          Settings
                          This Electronic Toothbrush with three settings "Clean" for people who want to whiten their teeth up a bit more, "Sensitive" for people like me who are in need of a toothbrush that's going to be more caring for their teeth and "Clean and White" for people who just want a to kept their teeth the way the way they, each of these settings can be chosen by pressing the power button, one for "Clean, twice for "Sensitive" and three times for "Clean and White".
                          The Sonicare Flexcare Plus Toothbrush also comes with an installed set time limit for how long you should use it for, insuring you have extremely clean teeth!

                          Battery
                          In my experience I would say the battery lasts about 2 weeks at most, but never try to operate it when it's running out of battery because it just won't stay on and will continue to warn you that it needs new batteries.
                          This products runs off of two AA batteries.

                          Advantages
                          This product is recommended by Dental Practitioners all over the country and promises to remove more plaque that any other toothbrush, the toothbrush itself is made from soft bristles and won't cause you pain when operating it, it will instantly improve your overall oral health and make a your teeth a lot whiter!

                          Does it work?
                          Absolutely, I'm had this toothbrush for a year now and I've definitely seen results, I have less plaque, it's easier to clean my teeth and my teeth look a lot better!

                            If you want most energy, try unleashing the beast!

                            Now normally I would argue that all Energy Drinks taste exactly the same, no matter what the name, the store or the brand, an energy drink, is an energy drink right? Well with Monster, this opinion goes completely out the window and hopefully with this review you will see why!

                            The Logo
                            I know that this review is based on the drink, but I feel the need to comment on the logo as well as it really adds to the "drinking experience?", Monster Energy drink sports the letter "M" for the logo, which is supposedly made to look at in a "Monster" has clawed it, which I think is clever.
                            The slogan is "Release the beast", the "beast" supposedly living inside your can of Energy Drink, which in my opinion is quite smart and clever.

                            Ingredients
                            Carbonated Water, Sucrose, Glucose, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors, Taurine, Sodium Citrate, Color Added, Panax Ginseng, Root Extract, L-Carnitine, Caffeine, Sorbic Acid, Benzoic Acid, Niacinamide, Sodium Chloride, Glucuronolactone, Inositol, Hydrochloride, Sucralose, Riboflavin, Maltodextrin and Cyanocobalamin. (not the healthiest of ingredients I realise, but what Energy Drink is healthy?)

                            Taste
                            The taste is what separates Monster from any other Energy Drink, unlike the classic unhealthy cheap energy drink taste, Monster provides a fruity drink, which supplies you with Energy while also allowing you to enjoy the drink your drinking. Monster comes in a variety of flavours including Original, Ripper, Khaos and Assault, all of which are branded as 50% juice and 50% energy, a nice blend if you ask me.

                            Who can drink it?
                            Although enjoyed by kids all over the world, Monster is recommended to only be ingested by people who aren't under 18 and who don't have a High Caffeine Problem as this drink includes a high dose of Caffeine.

                            Best served with ice!

                              Go and grab a bargain!

                              I was sad to see that Andrew Barton's straighteners aren't available on here for me to review, but seeing as I received these Wavers as a gift about 2 years ago, I thought why not tell of my personal experience seeing as I have begun using them a lot more in the last year.

                              Overall Layout
                              Well I think we can all agree that when it's comes to hair products, it's very hard to make the layout complicated, so basically as always, this hair product is very easy to understand and shows no need for an instruction manual, it has two buttons one for turning up the heat and one for turning down the hear, you plug it in to a normal sized plug socket and push down on the lever to unclip the waving device and then let go to place it on the chosen piece of hair, all of this is very straight-forward and obvious from first looking at the product, which is good, as no girl wants hassle when it comes to their hair right?

                              Price
                              You can buy the Andrew Barton Making Waves exclusively at Argos for just £17.98 which is an amazing price for such a great product.

                              Heat
                              The product comes with an amazing 10 heat settings, 10 degrees in difference, you can have the temperature from 80 degrees to 180 degrees to compensate for thick hair, thin hair, heat sensitive hair and strong hair, making it the perfect product for each hair type.
                              The product is also very safe and is designed so you will not burn yourself accidentally at all by using it.

                              Outcome of use
                              Well put it this way, after using it for the first time, I was ashamed in myself for not picking it up sooner, this product does exactly what it advertises, it's very easy to use and leaves you with a flowing waves that will suit any hair, which is a look I have been trying to get for years as when I was young I always used to think it was kind of a surf, beach look, and up until using this product, I had never been able to accomplish it, so by the end, I was thrilled.

                              Weight
                              I was unable to find out the exact weight of this product, but I can tell you that it looks a lot heavier that it actually is, the device itself is very light.

                              Conclusion
                              In conclusion I would say that this product is such a bargain you would be crazy not to buy it, it's one of the cheapest products specifically for waving and the final outcome can't be faulted, I am overjoyed to own it!
