      Great scent, fruity and lasts all day. Highly recommended

      I was given this as a Christmas present and it isn't actually the perfume I normally use. I usually wear Nina Ricci, Ricci Ricci. I thought I would give this a go because it had been bought for me and I love it. I prefer it to the one i normally wear.

      It has a fruity scent to it that is not too overpowering and the scent lasts on your skin all day so you don't have to worry about topping up during the day.

      The bottle is pink with a lovely silver design on the top. It is in the shape of an apple with silver leaves on it. The spray on the bottle is covered by a silver round lid that forms the final detail to the apple shape. The design of the bottle seems to go perfectly with the scent and so does the colour of the bottle. You could imagine wearing the perfume while wearing pink clothes along with others.

      The perfume come in different sizes of 30ML and 50ML. You can also get some gift sets at certain times of year that include shower gel or body lotion that also have the same lovely scent.

      I really recommend this product to women who love to smell nice. I will continue to purchase this perfume for a long time and I hope that others will take the opportunity to try it too.

      price has gone up but a greta treat

      The Cadbury freddo frog is a very popular children's (and adults) sweet. At a small size, they are the perfect treat and chocolate hit that you could need.

      I love the fact that the chocolate is in the shape of a frog and the frog looks so happy. It is almost guaranteed to cheer you up if you are feeling down. It is made out of pure Cadbury milk chocolate so taste like a bar of dairy milk, just smaller and frog shaped.

      A Freddo is only 95 calories so can be used as an afternoon treat for someone who is trying to eat healthily and it is also a good choice to give to children as it isn't too big.

      They cost 20p pre freddo now which is a lot of money compared to what they used to cost. the rice keeps going up and up. I remember that just a little while ago, they were 15p each and then went up to 17p but very quickly after that rise, they now seem to be 20p each. The only good thing is that the price is written on the packet so it cannot be changed by individual shops, you pay the same everywhere.

        they shouldn't have taken our truffle but still good for sharing

        Celebration sweets used to be one of the best boxes in the market. They used to contain bounty, mars, milky way, galaxy, galaxy caramel, snickers, malteser and truffle. In recent months, Mars have decided to swap the truffle sweet with a twix. These are just not the same and it has not cheapened the whole selection of chocolates. The truffle was the best one in the box, the one that tasted like a proper quality chocolate and it has now been replaced with a cheap tasting biscuit sweet.

        Since this decision, I now do not feel like celebrating if I get given these sweets whereas before, I would be really pleased with a present of these!

        Celebrations used to be my first choice if I had to choose a box or tin of sweets but now I would always choose something else over these as I feel they are just not what they used to be.

        When Mars decided to take out the topic sweet, that was a good decision as they were always the ones that were left at the end but taking out the truffle was a really bad decision in my opinion.

        The chocolates in this selection are fine to put out when people come round or at a special occasion. They are still perfect to put out at a party or for Christmas. They can come in handy tins and/ or plastic boxes at Christmas time to save packaging and money!

        I recommend these chocolates for people who want to put something out for when people come round. The wrappers are brightly coloured so they look attractive when they are in a bowl out on the table. The only problem is that when all the best sweets have gone, the colours in the bowl seem to dull a bit. They do still look good but just not as good. The malteser sweets are in a red wrapper so they stand out the most, then it is the milky way as they are in a blue wrapper. Now, with the twix in the selection, this wrapper also helps the collection stand out. The snickers and galaxy sweets have fairly dull colour wrappers so do not stand out as much.

        It is £4.00 for a 420g box of celebrations in Tesco and sometimes they are on offer, 2 boxes for £6.00.

          Disadvantages

          wonderful flavour, but not sold anymore

          When wispa gold was brought back in 2009 I hadn't heard of it before. I heard all my friends saying that it was greta to have been brought back but I didn't know what they were talking about. I was in my local tesco and saw a stand advertising the new product and so I looked at them to see what it was. I read that it was a wispa (which I didn't know what it was either) with caramel in the middle. I liked the sound of it so thought I would give it a go. I took it home and opened it straight away as everyone had told me they were so good. I bit into the bar and taste was so good that I then knew what everyone had been meaning.

          From then, I bought one every time I was in the shops which can't have been good for the healthy eating plan but I didn't care.

          When I found that they had once again stopped selling them, I wasn't too impressed. I hadn't long discovered the sweet and they had stopped selling them. I would really appreciate it if they were to bring these back into the shops as I would definitely be purchasing them again.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            dull colours and boring taste 'chocolate' sweets

            I used to love smarties. They tasted like proper Nestle chocolate with a crisp sugar shell in various bright colours from yellow to green to red to purple to blue to brown and orange. Also the orange smarties tasted like actual chocolate orange so these ones were my favourite colour.

            Now I find that the sugar shells are dull in colour, the are not as crisp as they used to be and the chocolate inside doesn't really taste like chocolate. Since Nestle tried to become healthy and take out all the artificial colours and flavours and take out additives, they have changed and in my opinion ruined smarties. The orange smarties also do not now taste of orange, but the same boring taste of the rest of the colours.

            I find that there now isn't anything special about a tube of smarties like there was years ago when I was growing up. I used to love getting boxes of mini smarties and sorting out all the bright colours into the own piles. Now they are not brightly coloured and it just doesn't seem to have the same attraction as it did before.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            good flavour but too crumbly chocolate

            I love Cadbury chocolate and normally like all (or most) or their products. I love the flavour of their flake as it tastes just like any other Cadbury product but not quite as rich due to the gaps in between the chocolate. This adds texture to the product which makes it different from every other product on the market.

            Cadbury have a certain way of making every one of their product different from the last one and the rest in their range. They do seem to know what consumers want and seem to bring out successful products.

            I find that, despite the lovely flavour of the Cadbury flake, it is slightly too flaky. When you bite into ti, the crumbs go everywhere and you end up covered in chocolate. I also find that the wrapper they are in does not help matters with the crumbs. If it was something that could open out flat, you might be able to eat it over the wrapper and not drop as many crumbs.

            I find the crumbs a problem because it then means I have to clean myself up after or eat it with great difficulty which makes life a lot harder.

            great flavour, good quality chocolate, great overall!

            Mini eggs are what I look forward to most about Easter. I know it sounds sad but I really like them!

            The crisp sugar shell comes in different colours, white, purple, pink and yellow. I think the pink and the yellow ones taste the best to me. They do taste different and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Try them for yourself if you don't believe me.

            The chocolate inside the mini eggs does not taste like normal Cadbury chocolate but has its own taste. Eating the sugar shell and the chocolate separately does not have the same effect as when you eat them together so you should put the whole egg in your mouth and eat them like that. The eggs are small (hence the name 'mini eggs'), they are about the size of a thumb nail.

            I am annoyed that these sweets are not sold the whole year round but the way shops stock up for seasons really early, it will soon be time to purchase them again.

            Mini eggs come in different sizes from fun-size size bags and individual tubes to large tubes and sharing bags.

            very cheap bread, bad flavour

            At 47p a loaf you can't really expect it to taste great but to be honest, I wouldn't really be happy feeding this bread to the ducks. I don't even know why it got into my house but for some reason a loaf of Tesco value bread found its way in so I tried it. NEVER AGAIN. It tasted like I had bitten into cardboard and the bread was really stodgy. It took a long time to chew and finally I reached the stage where I had to try to swallow it which was really hard but I managed it.

            The bread it thick cut so it is even harder to chew and swallow as you have more of it in your mouth at one time.

            I do understand that some people may be short of money but even if I couldn't afford anything else, I would not purchase this bread as I would not be able to bring myself to eat it if I had purchased it.

              great flavour, good quality chocolate

              When you eat Galaxy chocolate you can taste that it is good quality and not a general rubbish bar of chocolate.

              I find I can eat a lot of this chocolate in one go but normally limit myself to an individual bar that I spread out over the whole evening. If I eat too much of it too quickly, I find I start to feel a little bit ill as it is a rich chocolate due to the quality of it.

              You can also melt this chocolate to dip things in (like a fondu) and it melts wonderfully. It combines with fruit, marshmallows or even fudge to dip in it. I think the flavour of the chocolate changes when you melt it but it still tastes really good.

              I really recommend this chocolate to any chocolate lovers out there who want a good quality chocolaty treat. You can't go far wrong with a bar of galaxy. Buy me a bar of galaxy and you will be my friend forever!!

              great flavour sweet

              Maltesers are possibly one of my favourite sweets. The chocolate on the outside isn't like any other chocolate on the market, it isn't like saying it is Cadbury or Galaxy. The malt filling inside melts in your mouth to leave the unique malteser taste.

              I like to let some of them melt in my mouth and then crunch the rest as it gives you two different flavours but both are equally lovely.

              They come in packs of different sizes from fun size right up to large family size bags or sharing boxes. For a standard 37g box of maltesers it is 187 calories and 9.1g of fat. This is very good in my opinion as a bag of maltesers can last you a long time if you eat them one at a time and appreciate the flavour of each one.

              I could eat many maltesers in one sitting, more than one person should really but I just love them so much.

              I really recommend these to chocolate lovers.

              great tasting Easter treat

              I love Cadbury creme eggs. I think you can eat them at anytime of year but unfortunately they do not sell them throughout the year. Fortunately Cadbury have solved my problem and have created Cadbury twisted which is fairly similar as it has chocolate on the outside and the fondant filling in the middle.

              The Cadbury creme egg has a unique and wonderful flavour that really reminds me of spring (I assume as they are for Easter and it is a similar time of year).

              The fondant filling is so sweet but not too sweet I find. I used to think that the white and orange parts tasted different but actually they don't, they both have the same 'creme egg' flavour that anyone can recognise. The chocolate around the outside is Cadbury milk chocolate and is fairly thick so you have a good ratio of chocolate to fondant in every bite.

              The whole egg is fairly high in calories but to me it is so worth it.

              I recommend this product to any chocolate and/or sweet lovers out there who like a sweet hit.

              very good suitcases, great company

              I purchased one of these suitcases back in October 2008 ready for my trip to South Africa in November 2008 as I only had a small luggage restriction and was going for 10 days so would need a lot of stuff. I was so surprised when I actually lifted the case off of the floor to find how light it was.

              They suitcase was fairly expensive but as it was so light and came with a 10 year guarantee, I decided to go ahead with the purchase and actually bought two, one for me and one for my sister who was also coming to South Africa.

              We used the cases for the trip and were find on luggage restrictions so all was good. The only problem was that they are basic black and were slightly hard to spot on the baggage reclaim belt. We bought bright red and yellow luggage straps to put around them which made life easier so this wasn't too much of a problem in the end.

              When we took our cases to tenerife, I got mine out of the car and by the time I had put it onto the shuttle bus to the airport, I found that one of the legs had dropped off so ti didn't stand up properly. The same problem occurred on my sisters case when she was travelling on a train. As there is a 10 year guarantee, we contacted the shop where we bought them from and they told us to bring them to be sent off for repair. the first case came back and appeared to be fixed until we went to use it and found that it actually didn't belong to us, but to someone from London as their name was inside. We then discovered that the handle on this case didn't work so we assumed that, that was the problem this case had been sent away with.

              We then had 2 cases, one with a leg missing and the other with a broken handle that actually didn't belong to us. We again contacted the shop where we purchased the cases from and they said they would send them off to be check and repaired.

              Later day I got a phone call on my mobile from the store manager saying that the warehouse had heard about our problems and instead of repairing our old cases, they would just replace the two cases and give us two new ones that were the newer model. This was very generous of them and shows that they are a very good company to deal with.

              I really recommend these suitcases for travelling abroad with a weight restriction as you can't really find anything else lighter. They come in a range is sizes to suit everyones needs. they also do cabin size bags that you can take as hand luggage but fit as much as possible in. The price of them is fairly high but you could always look out for offers on them. If not, they are still worth the money as they can last for a long time and have the guarantee that will get the case swapped if there is a major problem with it.

              depressing stories with pictures of sad faces throughout the magazine

              I used to purchase this magazine to do exactly what the title says 'take a break'. I used to sit down with the magazine, a drink and sometimes a treat. I sat and did the puzzles in the magazine, read the stories and filled in the entry form for the competition puzzles and send it off. I never won anything but it didn't matter as I enjoyed doing the puzzles.

              Now I find that the puzzles are fairly similar apart from some of the arrow word ones being a little harder than before. I then find that a lot of the stories in the magazine are depressing and about dead people, dying people or very ill people. Nothing in it seems to be happy and I found myself not wanting to 'take a break' anymore as it meant having to look at the sad faces of the suffering people in the magazine. Some of the other stories are about people who have been stabbed, attacked or who are different from others in society but I really find that the stories these days are really horrible to read.

              I now do not purchase this magazine as I do not want to see these horrible stories and find that there are other magazines I can buy for around the £1.55 take a break costs. I now choose to buy other magazines, or even save my money rather than spend it on something that is full of sad stories.

              The only way I would recommend this magazine would be if you wanted to read about dead of dying people and liked to see the pictures of the sad faces. If this is you then this is the right magazine for you to buy, if not then stay clear!

              great fashion magazine that is worth the money

              I have been reading this magazine for quite a while now to see what the latest fashion is like. I do not normally shop and specifically purchase clothes that are in fashion (I buy what I like) but I like to read about them.

              The magazine costs £1.70 and is weekly but I normally read everything in the magazine so I think it is worth the money. It is a little treat and I give myself the time to sit and read it.

              I read the stories in there too but sometimes find myself saying 'I don't really care' or 'why should people need to know this' which is a little annoying but still doesn't stop me reading the articles.

              The only part that I normally skip over is the part about the celebrities love lives as, to be honest, I really don't care what they are or are not doing with their love lives. It is their business and nobody else's in my opinion so I do not normally read that page. I also find that if I do read this page, I do not know the names of most of the 'celebrities' that are named there anyway.

              I read the horoscopes at the back but normally find they are inaccurate and the things they say do not normally happen. This makes me laugh and want to read them more though as I want to know what is 'not' going to happen to me in the next week.

              I really like Look magazine and will continue to purchase it in the shops every week. I will not get in on subscription though as I do not trust them to arrive on time or even at all as this has happened to me in the past. I am happy picking up the latest copy when I am in the shops.

              I recommend this magazine to any young women who love to read about fashion and who want to know what is going to be the new clothing trends. It is a great read and gives you some clothing ideas sometimes too!

              Great building society with friendly staff who are happy to help

              I have been with nationwide since I first had savings as a child so my parents choose to use them for me as I was very young. I have had money in bonds building up interest and other accounts with money sitting in.

              I have not, as yet had any problems with Nationwide and will remain a customer of theirs as long as I do not seem to be getting any problems.

              I now have a Flex account with them and various bonds that all seem to work well and I get informed of any changes being made to any accounts in plenty of time so I can decide what to do.

              I also use their internet banking service which seems to work very well when I finally got it to work. I did have a problem getting it set up and couldn't seem to log in but this turned out to be my fault as I had forgotten my security information. I went into the branch to get help and they were really helpful with getting it all sorted out and I am now up and running with the internet banking.
