      FANTASTIC.

      Now although i dont use this product, i am absolutley in love with it :)

      My boyfriend is a BIG lynx fan and is very loyal and will not buy any other brand. He generally trys every new one to come out, however i dont think any of them beat 'Lynx Africa'

      Like i said i dont wear this product, so dont know what it feels like on, but my boyfriend always goes back to it, so it must work. However, i do know that it smells absolutley GORGEOUS, and definatley gets 10/10 from me. Its a very sweet fresh smell that last a great ammount of time.

      Lynx retail prices seems to allways change, but usually around £2.50, but it seems to always be on offer in local tesco, asdas, superdrugs etc.

      It comes in a black tin, with LYNX written in white, and a red and green stripe, then AFRICA written in green.

      This is about as much as i can write on this product, however i thought i would give a woman's opinion on the smell as its definatley my favourite :)

      Gotta Love Tic Tac's..

      Absolutley love tic tac's, they come in a good variety of flavours however the orange and lime is definatley my favourite, not only do they taste good they leave your breath smelling fresh and a nice taste in your mouth.

      They are perfect for me as im trying to diet and work out less than 2 calories per tic tac, so instead of me snacking on bits of chocolate i can just pop one of these in my mouth.

      They come in 2 different size's of boxes and are clear in colour so you can allways see how many you have left, there is flip lid with a kind of clip lid so when in your bag it wont open. Both size boxes are perfect for fitting in my bag :)

      These sell for around 50p each, however you can now buy them in a multi pack which £1.69 for 4 in my local tesco.

      Overall brilliant product, No disadvantages atall

      a couple of sprays.. go along way!

      After reading a review on this the other day, i decided to treat myself to this, im shoe mad and thought this is as close to jimmy choo shoes as im gettin.

      It is on offer at the moment and was £58 for the 100ml. Its in a very posh looking glass circular bottle, with a black lid and jimmy choo written on the neck. It is absolutley perfect size for fitting in my bag :)

      I am very pleased with it so far, at first i thought it was maybe a bit dear, however everyone is right and you really do only need a few sprays as it can come accross as a bit strong (once its died down a bit it smells alot better) I started my work at 9am so sprayed it before i left and had someone come up to me before my lunch (around 1pm) asking what i was wearing as it smelt gorgeous, so it definatley lasts.

      The fragrance itself very fruity, and reminds me of being a summery smell.

      Definatley recommended. Thank you for reading & i hope this helps

      Disadvantages

      great shower gel :)

      I constantly buy original source shower gel, but i am really keen on this one :)

      Original source itself usually sells for around £2, however when at my local tesco it was on offer for only 99p so i stocked up on loads of different ones..

      The smell of the vanilla milk & raspberry is absolutley beautiful, and i allways feel and smell better and fresher after using this. The shower gel is not as thick as the other original sources, but you dont need alot on your sponge so it does last long :)

      The bottle that holds the shower gel is clear so you can allways see what you have left and has a black lid with a kind of clip open close bracket - you need to squeeze it for the gel to come out, so definatley better than the bottles which more than you need usually comes out,

      I would allways recommend original source, and vanilla milk and raspberry is definatly one of my favourites

      everything you need in a phone

      Recentley had a call from vodafone stating i was due an upgrade & chose the iphone 4s...

      Now i cant believe i was so long without an iphone, it is absolutley amazing & really seems to do everything, It is a good looking phone, not to bulky, but i would advise people to buy a case & screen protector just too keep it looking so good. :) - these can be bought cheap of amazon, so not like its gonna cost alot.

      The iphone 4s camera is great, although not the best on the market it takes brilliant photos & videos & the memory is fantastic :)

      My only downfall is the battery life of the phone, when your like me & constantly searching the web, or on facebook etc it does go down quite a bit, however if you are just phoning, texting & listening to music it does last quite a while. (Ive also heard you can download an app battery booster to keep the battery lasting a little longer although i havnt tried this)

      SIRI : When you hold down th middle button on the phone, it asks what it can help you with, this is an app that you speak into & it either answers or does what you say, eg 'Will it rain today in Perth' .. or text Mum saying ill be home late, at first i used it all the time but in th end got annoyed with th "Siri Voice" and use it less often..

      You can get the iphone 4s in white or black :)

      Long story short, Iphone 4s if defo recommended :)

      Thanks for reading

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Overall good product

      Ive had this product since the last world cup was on, as i bought a new tv, & you were gettin this for £59.99 (saving £30) at the time,

      I couldnt wait to get home & get everything set up, (i really am easyily amussed) & couldnt believe it was touch sensitive, i wasnt too sure at first thinking it would no doubt be alot more technical but it really wasnt and i was pleased, overall look of dvd player is fantastic, its smart, a great size & not like normal players as its in a circle shape - perfect if its needing to fit somwhere small & looks alot better to.

      In the box was the dvd player itself, the leads & a perfect sized remote.

      *I have never had a problem with this product, untill this morning when i went too put it on for my son & the touch sensitive part doesnt seem to be working, as i have 2 young kids i cant say if it was them or a fault, but it still works through the remote so not a problem :)


      Dvd player can play DVIX soo this was a big selling point for us aswell, & i would strongly recommend this product.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall fantastic product

        This is an exellent product and i constantly have a bottle just incase...

        I have 2 pups (one 14months & one 7months) a springer spaniel & a cocker spaniel, i got both them around 9 weeks & cage trained them so as you can imagine there was some little accidents.

        It is absolutley fantastic for disinfecting the area & leaving a pleasant smell. it is around £3 for a bottle from pets at home & really does last ages, its fantastic value for money & comes in a plastic bottle with a spray top so is really easy to use.

        I would not go without this, even though my dogs are older, this is perfect for wiping down th floors where they lie and sleep, and even better for where they eat from as its safe to use so will do them no harm.

        Its not just for dogs, fantastic for cleaning hamster cages, rabbits & basically any animal area.

        Thank you for reading :)

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall great product

        *Absolutley love this product, Sodastream itself ranges in price, ive seen it from £24.99 right up to £89.99, but when you actually have it you see why..

        My youngest son would not drink anything other than coca cola, aged 6 he generally didnt like anything else(clearly all in the mind) .. Untill we bought this, id spoke to a friend before and advised to give this a little try. What kid wouldnt like the thought of turning water into fizzy juice?

        It does as it says, turns tap water into fizzy water in seconds & its fun to watch too, you fill the bottle up, screw it in press a button & waa laa its fizzy, you get so many syrups for it aswell and around £2-£3 - depending on shop it is just the same as buying a bottle of juice anyway.

        Lots of people have said soda stream is dear etc, but when you take your empty gas canister back you get money off the next one & they last a good ammount of time.

        I really would recommend this product, especially for kids too as you know what some are like thinking there drinking fizzy juice like adults & its drunk in seconds :)

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not a good choice

        Bought this item for work as i thought it would go with leggings/trousers for a smart casual workwear.

        Its a nice looking cardigan & i have never had a problem with anything from Matalan before, it was £14.00, but because i had a voucher got it for £10 .. soo really did think i was gettin a bargain. It comes in a few different colours & size's from 8 - 22, however the size's are a little weird as the arms on the 10 were to short but th cardy itself was a little baggy.. but because items usually shrink after a few wash's i got the 12, as i really was struggling for clothes for work.

        After wearing it on day one it was a nice design which did indeed go with anyhing, so at first i was quite pleased, but after washing it a few times (max 3/4) i started to notice it gettin really bobbly & wonky looking, also a twice the buttons have fell off and needed sewed back on... I was correct the item did start to shrink & arms ended up being to small again but seemed to just stay the same around the bum (baggy)

        I would not recommend this item as the quality is definatly poor & for the price paid you could get a decent one from newlook, asda etc.

        Thanks for reading :)

        DRIVE AS FAR AS POSSIBLE AWAY FROM ADMIRAL!

        Have been with Admiral insurance for 2 years now, on first year never had a problem atall, other than when i changed car they wanted to charge me £49.99, however after refusing to pay and going through to a few different departments this charge was dropped and everything was fine, so upon renewal admiral being £700 cheaper i decided to stay with them! BIG MISTAKE - its been problem since day one & i cannot wait for May for me to leave. Driving home from shopping in September, someone ran into me on a round about (6 Witness's it was not my fault) .. at first when i called they were very happy to listen but extremley rude when it came to me saying i would rather them deal with my dad as i wasnt too sure much about it (Dads on my insurance as named driver - so not due to data protection), refused to do this, so went ahead & discussed claim. Recieved a courtesy car 5 days later (a small ka - big difference to my vauxhall vectra which needs to fit a wheel chair & a buggy in) .. however thinking i wouldnt have the car long i went ahead with it... Was hounded with phone calls (3-4 per week) asking me to go over details & send witness details. I posted details to them SEVEN times and to this day say they have still not recieved them. Admiral then put me over to Albanny (apparently a sister company) & then had to disccuss everything with them again.. FINALLY middle of October recieve a letter with a payout cheque, for 1/4 of what car was worth, call them immediatley & they said it was because they had put me over to other company & to wait for a cheque from them, few days later..recieve a cheque from them so finally thought everything was sorted & went ahead and cashed cheques....

        THAT WOULD PUT MOST PEOPLE OFF ALLREADY HOWEVER THE WORST IS YET TOO COME:

        Beginning of November days after adding my new car to the policy i recieve a phone call claiming i am owe admiral £2800 as they did not mean to send cheque because albanny was supose to! I am still going through legal actions to fight against this & would not recommend anyone to get insurance from them (EVEN IF ITS THOUSANDS CHEAPER!)

        A Nail Polish With A Shine

        i LOVE this product! .. i have been a fan of Barry M for years & the products seem to keep getting better & better. The nail effects itself is great value at £3.99 a bottle. (much cheaper than paying to get them done in salon's) It can be used time & time again, and can be bought in different shades .. It really does do as it says on the bottle, Literally you just put a base coat on of a different shade, i tend to match the bottom coat with a colour of clothing im wearing, then put the instant effect on & within seconds your left with a gorgeous professional looking design,

        The product comes in a square kind of bottle with the barry m nail paint writing in gold & the nail effects funky design :)

        The one thing i would say, is the effect really does begin to show within seconds so the coat of it does need to be done quite quickly,

        I would highly recommend this product over others, as im very big on trying out new nail polish's reguarly, this one is alot better than recent ones ive tested!

        Thanks for reading <3
