      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      They look pretty, cheap, and can wear with anything.

      If your looking in your wardrobe and thinking you dont have any shoes to wear ( which you probably do but women always say it), and want to find a decent pair that will pretty much go with anything, then you should definately buy these black bow primark shoes.

      Primark is known for modern up to date clothes and shoes at a price that we can all afford, and therefore get more items for our money .
      Some people think because primark is so cheap, that all the items are useless and not worth buying at all of break fast. Well it is fair to say that other items i have purchased have been of bad quality, and didn't last long, but they do have items that are made very well.
      An example of bad quality was when i bought 2 pairs of flip flops that were comfy at the time but after wearing both of them only a few times , the middle part broke on both of them and i had to buy sellotape whilst being out, so was really embarassing.
      This was just one example and there have a few more like strappy tops ect.
      There have also been items that have lasted a long time, and that i always go back to like their pjamas which i love and bras, but also pumps!

      I bought these pumps when i saw i didnt have many black plain pumps in my wardrobe worth wearing. Every girl knows these are a must have because they go with everything and make putting an outfit together an easy process.
      They were only about £6 and they are really soft ,although like any shoes, you need to wear then in at first.
      The bow is pretty and i wear them with anything i pick out of my wardrobe. They are worth buying for the price and the fact they will last you for ages!
      They would make good school shoes for kids too if you have kids of that age, aswell as work shoes, or just for casual occasions.
      I do hope you buy these shoes as they have become a staple in my wardrobe for sure!
      Thank you

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A very helpful product in times of NEED!

      When i was around the middle of my pregnancy i decided to try and follow some rules to do with exercise and pregnancy, (as i had been quite lazy up to then), so decided to buy a pregnancy ball for the house.
      The ball was cheap to purchase considering how useful it was and how much i ended up using it throughout.

      When you have a huge bump and first sit on it its like a sign of relief as everything else you sit on is VERY uncomfortable to you mainly because any position on the sofa makes the baby dig into your ribs.
      So i started to follow some useful videos on youtube which showed some excercise rountines for using the ball and being pregnant, and i started to really enjoy it.

      When i was tyring to induce labour (i was 4 days late and getting frustrated), i heard that bouncing on it would do the trick, so i gave it a go, but nope they just come when they're ready no matter how much you try.
      When i was finally in labour we didnt have enough time to deflate the ball to take it to the hospital so stupidly wanting MY ball my fiance ended up carrying it as well as the rest of the things we had to bring which was embarrasing. So i would recomend deflating defore the journey there, or just ask for their one.

      During labour all women end up in some crazy alternative position just to ease the pain, and end up staying there untill pushing. With me, as soon as i sat on the ball thats where i stayed, rocking back and forth, whilst getting a back rub from my very helpful fiance! (for 4 hours!).
      I had back labour, and i found that the ball helped take the pressure off my back so much and leaning forward helped too.
      I was so happy when it was all over and thrilled to see the little present at the end, but i dont know what i would have done with out the ball, as lying there on the bed not being able to move was not my thing.

      Please buy the birthing ball its well worth it believe me!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Correctly immitates breast feeding.

      When our little girl was first born we actually used the small version of these bottles becuse untill she was 2 months she only had up to 5 oz per bottle, and the small ones only went up to 5.
      The big ones however start at 2 oz up to 9 oz, becuse once you've bought this size its the only one you will need untill they are using sippy cups.

      At 2 and a half months old now, baby Freya drinks the recomended 6 oz per bottle at around 5 bottles per day, and will do so untill she reaches 4 months. Then goes on to 7 oz as the guidelines say.

      The reason why we decided to choose all the Tommee Tippee bottle feeding and steralising equiptment was because we thought it looked very classic, modern, and easy to use.
      The steralising steam heater we have is superb as it works in 5 minutes, and fits Tommee Tippee bottles of both sizes. We also have Their brand bottle brush, thermal insulators, and of course the bottles themselves.

      Tommee Tippee is very well known and the bottles they have made are made with great design and great thought process. The actual teat was designed to immitate the breast in everyway possible so that from newborn, the baby feels comfortable and secure when latching on.
      They also have a feature on them called a value that prevents your baby getting wind and colic, but you must make sure its open to work properly.
      They are made from silicone which is very soft to the touch and feels less "rubbery" like some other brands of teats, and feels more natural like a human breast.
      The teats come in 3 stages:
      newborn: stage 1 slow flow
      3 months +: stage 2 medium flow
      6 months +: stage 3 fast flow.

      Each baby is different however, as our little girl started on medium flow stage 2 at only 1 and a half months old. This was because shes greedy and where she wanted more to come out then there actually was, she was sucking too hard and running out of energy which made her too lazy to finish all of her bottle which became a problem. Also, from the sucking she managed to suck some air too, and found she kept coughing and choaking, so we tried medium flow, and she loved it !

      I love feeding her with these bottles because they look so lovely ( i have the decorated pink ones), and i also like the grip on them, they are very comfortable to hold.

      I also love the fact that we can use these bottles for a long time now, so after one cheap purchase they will definately do you justice.
      Thanks for reading, i hope your baby loves them as much as ours does.

    • GHD IV Styler / Hair Straightener / 5 Readings / 3 Ratings

      17.09.2012 00:22

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Would recomend to everyone

      Previous to these medium straitners for medium length, i owned a bigger more square version, but the wire on these seemed to come apart so i stoped using them out of safety.

      When i couldn't use them anymore i decided i desperately needed another one to replace it, so i looked around and opted for the smaller more rounded one as i had cut my hair to shoulder length and didnt need huge ones anymore.
      Another reason that intised me was the fact that everyone was trying out curling their hair with these straitners because they are were made round.
      Ghd styles and colours/ patterns always change, and at the time the ones on offer were a pair of cancer research light pink straitners, so i bought them.
      As everyone knows, (or should know by now), Ghd's are certainly the best straitners around, (much like Apple and Ugg). When you turn them on it only takes around 5 seconds, and then the red light will come on it along with a little noise which means they are now ready and hot enough to use. This means it litterally only takes around 5 seconds to heat up to the max ready fro use which is superb because everyone has a busy lifestyle don't they?

      A first for about a year i was only using them for straitning my hair, and because of the heat on them it only takes about 10 minutes to finish the whole head. Recently though i got the confidence to try curling with them too,( i had tried before but didnt know how to so lost interest). When i went to the hairdressers though i asked them to show me and since then i've been practising and that only takes me 15 minutes to do. If you spray haairspray through out the different parts , and do it after blowdrying, you will have a bouncy curly look like what they achieve on tv.

      They are quick and easy to use and i've had my pink ones for about 6 years so far and all has been well.

      Hope you enjoy your 2 in 1 styling product.
      Thanks for reading up.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Nice earphones for all ages, and fits into all apple audio devices and phones.

      These earphones are made by apple and are a great buy. When you buy an apple iphone or and other apple audio device such as an apple ipod you will get a free pair of these earphones in the pack it comes with.
      If you are not buying an apple product, but still want the earphones seperate in order to use it with an mp3 player from another brand for example, then you will have to purchase them seperately.
      Also if you previously had these earphones free when you bought something from apple but then lost them or they broke which happened to me once, then this might be another reason you are looking to purchase another pair.

      Know matter the reason that brought you to buy these earphones, they are definately worth all the hassle.
      The earphones have changed and improved over the years though. They used to be very plain and parts of it were long unnessesary, but now these parts have got smaller and look better.

      The part that plugs into the devices has gotten shorter and the part that comes off the actual ear pieces have also got shorter.
      On the earphones are some useful devices too. There is a bar on it which is thin and comapct, and has a plus sign and a minus sign, with a dip in the middle.
      The plus allows you to turn your music up, and minus turns it down. The dip button in the middle does two things.
      One, if you press it once it pauses the music, and two, if you press it twice it will change the song to the next track on your playlist.
      I find this very useful as many people travel around and like to have their device in the pockets/ handbags, or they just prefer to hide it away incase it gets stolen, so this resolves the problem of always getting the device out.
      When you actually plug them in, the sound is very good, its sharp, clear, and has a good tone to it. It is also alot louder in gerneral compared to most other earphones.
      These will fit into any apple device such as:
      Ipods, Ipads, Iphones, and laptops ect.

      The only annoying thing is that they dont have a jelly bit on them which means they fall out of your ears alot. They do some jelly made ones too if you find this problem.
      When buying them they usually go for around £30 becuse they are made by apple and the price will probably never go down.

      These are a good purchase and last a LONG time!
      Hope you buy these earphones as they're one of the best makes around.
      Thankyou
      Daniela

    • Virgin V +Box / Set Top Box / 11 Readings / 10 Ratings

      Very helpful
      (Rating)

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Best thing to enter our house since the birth of our baby :)

      The virgin media plus box is definately the best tv box on the market in my opinion.
      Sky used to be the thing everyone wanted and only people who had good money were able to buy it, but then things changed and they were doing lots of deals, (much like contract phones).
      When sky was up and running everywhere, there wasnt many other options avaliable for catch up tv and such, but then the competition came into play, and things like virgin media were invented from the company virgin that does many other things.
      The virgin media plus box came with our contract with them and since we got it we've never looked back and would never want to.
      The box lets you do many different things (depending on what package your paying for).
      We have the xl package which pretty much lets you search and watch/ catch up on all of the avaliable options, whereas the m package limits the facilities avaliable.
      On the main page there are 7 options which are:
      1: tv guide
      2: on demand and catch up yv
      3: virgin central
      4 : interactive
      5: search
      6: help
      and 7: settings.

      Number 2 on demand catch up section is what i use the most because you can catch up from most of everyday tv from the last 7 days, and also you can search by channel which has things like itv player, bbc player, and 4 on demand on it.
      There are many options within options on here if you really look into it, and you can search for any program you want .
      It hold its own memory too for when you want to record programs. You can record a whole series too if you want.
      There really is no limit to what you can do on here, whereas sky doesnt even have a catch up service for just any program thats been on tv like virgin does.

      We are at home alot and this have proven to be the best investment as we have a big tv too, and love watching tv.

      Thanks for reading hope you like this as much as me .

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Small and handy to have in winter.

      This heater is a good buy , me and my partner only paid i think about £20 for it at the time.
      We live in a small to medium sized flat which for some reason get very cold in winter, and very hot in the summer, unfortunately there is never any inbetween.
      So last year it got very cold in mid winter, and we had previously chucked another rubbish heater away, and needed a new one very soon as i was 3 months pregnant at the time and the cold is never good for a pregnant lady.
      So we bought this one, it was easy to find and easy to unpack as it comes in a one unit setup.
      We are only hooked up to electric in our home , so everythng is run from electric (cooker ect), so this is why an electric plug in heater was out only option really.
      Once you plug it in there are a few functions on the top which are for turning around, and the others act like a 1, 2, and 3 button which turn just one set of lights on, or two sets , or all three of the lights which will project the maximum amount of heat .
      We use it in our living room and number 3 for about 10 minutes usually does the trick depending on how cold it is, and stays warmer for longer with the door shut.
      The only minimal downfall is that it does wack your electric bill up quite a bit but thats to be expected. They normally come with a promise that "this heater is cheap to run", but really this never happens. Thia isnt too bad for us because we dont have a gas bill anyway but if you do just be slightly warned.
      Besudes that it is compact slim and will look good anywhere in the room, so if your thinking of buying one just do it wjhat have you got to loose?
      Thank you for reading,

    • Silver Cross Ventura / Child Car Seat / 7 Readings / 6 Ratings
      More +
      15.09.2012 01:15

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Would definately recomend to a friend.

      Since the day our little girl Freya was born we have used this car seat and she only weighed 6 pounds 14 oz, but she still looked very secure in it coming back from the hospital .
      We bought this as a set, it came with the silver cross pram and all was £300 as a deal that was going and may still be going. Ever since we got it our little one really loves it, she smiles when she gets put init, and before we bought our bouncer for the living room, we would put her in there at 2 months to look around.
      She also loved being rocked in it, which is another feature you can use it for, if like us we was late in buying a bouncer. The motion of the rocking would make her fall strait to sleep pretty much.
      The feel of the interior is very soft, so she must love how it feels on her body when shes in it.
      I love how attractive the seat looks, to me it looks like the perfect car seat, with its roof that hides the sun, pretty much the same as the ones on a pram which is really clever and different.
      The only bad pointer is the same with the pram really, and thats just that they are both quite heavy even without the 15 pound baby inside!. This is why my strong partner carries it most of the time for me :).

      It is still definately worth the weight and they will grow out of it when they are around 1-2 so enjoy the beauty of it while it lasts!

      Thanks for reading

    • Ugg Boots: Classic Tall / Shoes / 6 Readings / 5 Ratings
      More +
      15.09.2012 01:01

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I dont know one person who has tried and not loved them!

      Over the past couple of years i have made two purchases with ugg, both of them have been the same type of ugg which is the tall classics, and i chose the chocolate brown colour first, then about a year later chose the black ones.
      These colours were chosen simply because i like wearing these type of colours and needed them to go with the clothes in my wardrobe.
      When i first bought the brown ones i was won over because everyone was wearing them, and at first i thought they were quite preppy, but once i tried a friends pair on i was secretly hooked.
      From then i saved up and eventually got a pair,( although my friends woundered why i got them after initially doubting them). When you first put them on you feel like a rebel walking aroung the streets as they feel like your going out in your slippers, and think how am i getting away with this.
      Having the best of both is what sells these, the best of the amazing comfort from the sheep wool insides, and the way they look.
      They look really good and have over the years been a fasion statement, when you wear these your showing that you can actually afford them which makes you feel good.
      They can go nicely with prectically any other clothes such as jeans, leggings, tights, tracksuit bottoms, any tops, and even tights and dresses.

      The amazing thing about them is that after years of owning them, they never seem to break , tare, or look like you've had them for years, theyre pretty much indestructable!

      If your going to buy a pair seriously enjoy, but WARNING, once you put them on you will NEVER want to take them off ! No joke!

      Thanks

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Would recomend this as no problems have occoured.

      Hi me and my fiance desperately needed a washing machine in our flat, and after thinking about it we both decided that it would be annoying in a flat to wash our clothes and find places to dry them after (big pain), so i thought it would be alot better and quicker to give a washer dryer a go.
      After talking to some family members about washer dryers and their experiences, they have mostly said that they do not trust them and they break easily, and the electric bill would be through the roof ect. Although this all sounded quite grim, i chose not to listen and try it out for myself.
      We ended up purchasing it for just under £300 which was the best deal i could find.
      When it got delivered i was so pleased with it, it fitted perfectly in our small kitchenette, and matched the kitchen perfectly.
      The instillation only took the man about 10 minutes to complete, and left no mess.
      It comes with a very handy instruction manual which gives details on all the different settings it has and how to combine them for what you are trying to do.
      There are 13 different settings although depending on what you normally use everyday, most of them you will probably never use. For example, there are setting for things like sports and special shoes which i have and never will touch.
      It also has a knob for setting the temperature, and one for setting the drying time/ how dry you want it at the end. (You may want it ready for hanging strait up, or slightly damp to iron it better).
      There are useful settings like jeans, silk, and synthetics too. Having a different setting for jeans is useful because new jeans tend to run and if you put them with other jeans it will be fine, and the instructions will say what temperature is best anyway so you dont have to be a wahing wizz to manage it all.

      The setting combination i use most is:
      number 3 which is coloured cotton, alongside the recomended 40 degrees, and lastly i choose the wardrobe symbol on the drying knob, which is used to hang strait up, this takes about 3 hours altogether.

      You can also do a handy 30 minute wash and dry on number 13 for just a few garments in that doesnt weigh much, this is good for being in a rush.

      The only down side to this is i have yet to work out how to end up with non creased clothes, even with the wardrobe symbol, or maybe thats just me, hopefully you'll find a way.

      enjoy your new appliance hope you dont have trouble with it, i havnt yet and hope it stays that way .
      thanks

    • Tesco HB06 Handblender / Blender / 6 Readings / 4 Ratings
      More +
      14.09.2012 23:01

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good for all food blending without the need for human energy.

      We bought this from tescos as our VERY old blending appliance was totally broken beyond repair. I didnt really know how much they were as i hadnt bought one before (the old one was given to me), but luckily i found that tescos were inexpensive on alot of small house hold appliances.
      We bought this appliance for only around £4 which was really good for how much we use it (everyday).
      Me and my partner mainly use it for things like milkshakes, soups, and chopping down vegetables into smaller pieces for things like curries and hot pots.
      The positive for this product is that it is thin, compact, easy and light to handle, and any adult would be able to easitly operate it.
      The only bad thing about this product that i could see being a problem is the fact that the blade on it is VERY sharp which is brilliant for the job it is meant to do, but as we have a small child we will have to be very careful in the future when she is old ebough to reach things as where we leave it.
      You must therefore make sure it is out of reach of children of all ages really and should only be operated by an adult.
      Even adults should be very careful because when you wash it after use, if it is still plugged in (our plug socket isnt very far away from out sink ), you may accidently switch oit on whilst cleaning the blade, so ALWAYS take the plug out to make sure this is prevented!

      Other than the safety problem, it is a good buy a very good for the money i paid for it.

      i would definately recomens this to a friend, (maybe not a clumsy one though).

      Thankyou i hope you like your kitchen appliance

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good purchase if you want to take some quick unprofessional photos.

      I bought this camera about a year ago because i wanted a new camera which had a good picture quality and amount of mega pixels on it.
      In the store i looked at quite a few different camera brands and styles and there were some in there that seemed ok, but primaerily i was out looking for a camera of at least 12 mega pixels. i dont kn ow why but that has always seemed to draw me into the purchase of a camera, (trying to have the best ).
      Then i saw that this camera had 14 mega pixels as did some others, but another thing that made me do the deal on it was the huge screen size. The size of the screen stretches out to the very edges of the camera and only leaves about a millimeter of colour around the edges. I likeed this because screens like this look very modern and obviously lets you see more of the picture your taking.
      The features on the camera are quite good (for the camera price anyway), for example it has a 5 x wide digital zoom which is very compacted compared with the camera size.
      When you turn the camera on there are a few cool features to play around with too such as the top logo lets you switch to many different camera functions to take pictures in. these are:

      Panorama, which help when taking pictures from a far.
      program auto, where youu can change functions manually.
      iauto, where the camera is set automatically from the scene.
      DIS mode, reduces blur caused by movements.
      scene mode, which optimizes settings based on the shooting situation.
      Finally theres magic setting which is the fun feature. This has 7 features in itself called pop art, pin hole, fish eye, drawing, soft focus, punk, and sparkle.

      There are also normal camera functions like options of the flash, and macro and super macro which focuses on things close to make it good sharp quality. Also, a self timer, exposure setting such as +0.0 ect, and lastly a white/ black, sunny choice button.

      bad points:
      The video capture is quite good but not the best, and at first i loved the 14 mega pixel clearness, but now it doesnt seem as good as it was, (maybe my fault as i have now got an iphone which is only 8 mp but seem a whole lot better).

      In all its a good sized light weight thin camera which is suitable for all as it comes in many colours, althought if you are a photographer i would go for something dlr instead to get the VERY BEST quality pictures needed.

      hope youve enjoyed reading,
      thanks

      Advantages

      very nice slick piece of technology

      I bought this laptop brand new around 5 months ago at a pc world store at just under £400. I chose the colour blue because its such a bright coral blue and because i live with my partner and have a little girl, i thought my partner would benefit from SOME blue in the house.
      The hp pavilion is of a very good sized screen and is also light in weight, not to mention how thin it is!
      i would suggest that this would make a very nice new laptop for a university student or any other typr of student as those of a similar age group. I recomend this because this type of audience would appreciate how modern it looks and the features on the laptop scream out to the younger generation.
      When you first purchase the laptop you will find that the background image is a colourful graphical image which shows just how well the laptop picks out every colour.
      When you look through all the programs you will see all the normal windows programs, (apart from the student package which you will have to buy seperatelty). You will also find a range of easy to use music , game and video applications to keep you intertained. These apps are very good for people who wish to listen to music play a big range of ready to use games, and lastly (quite importantly), good for someone who enjoys making, editing, and sharing videos. My partner does this as a hobby and it has never let him down before.
      It has also got a hp webcam which is fun to use as it has a few good features on the sides like masks and scenery.
      One useful thing is that for interactive people is has built in skypeso you dont have to download it when needed.

      The memory is also really good, and because of the dual core processor it has the speed is doubled because like having two brains it can do more at once!

      As i have said i would largely recomend this to students (especially majoring in the arts), young people, but also business people who like to pass their time and boredom with some fun applications on breaks.
      Overall this is a very good buy and stays in good condition for a long time because it can withstand alot as its material is very strong

      Thank you for reading, i hope you enjoy you brand new hp laptop, have fun with it.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      everyone needs one

      This is definaltely the best phone on the market, although it is expensive most people are getting it through contracts with network providers. This phone has every feature you could possibly think of. Its 8mp camera is superb, (i have a 14 mp digital camera that doesnt hold a torch to it! ).
      The video camera is really clever too, because when you have finished recording there is a video strip along the top which has the stages of the video, and you can simply go to any step and erase the parts you dont want. You can even take a screen shot of a point in the video clip if you want by holding the hold button and the circle button together.
      The apps are for me the main reason why i wanted this phone though, mainly because they are very intertaining, from games to banking apps , they are very quick and easy to use and the games are very interactive for example racing games you simply tilt the handset and the car will move ect.
      There are many other cool features that i like too including the very fast internet with bookmark pages that make sit easy to keep pages together, and making a new tab is very easy too.
      I hope who ever is reading this review will buy this phone and be as happy as i am with it .
      Thanks for reading
