      Im a bit of a saddo and love my cleaning products! I was looking for something that was good on getting rid of grease and dirt that would leave the area with shine afterwards and saw this in Morrisons on offer for a £1, this was a while ago but just the other day I bought it from Asda as I spotted it on offer again for a pound. Usual cost price is around £2 - £2.50.

      The product contains chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite) and it advises to rinse immediately after use on metal, rubber and vinyl to avoid damage. It also advises to avoid use on worn, scratched or pitted appliances i.e fridges.

      To use the product you simply spray the area until thoroughly covered and leave for a couple of minutes (it states one minute but I prefer to leave couple of minutes). Once the product has been left rinse and wipe the area with a dry or damp cloth or a sponge.

      It cleans the area instantly and just with a simple wipe takes away the grease and dirt, with no hassle of scrubbing. Leaving the area very clean and shiney! I was very impressed especially with the price I paid for it!

      The product comes out a bit foamy and it states to have a fresh Eucalyptus scent to it. Personally in my opinion the scent it leaves is still bleach! But not as as strong as if you were using straight bleach.

      The product in my opinion is excellent for use on cooker tops, sinks, baths/showers and ceramic tiles and I also like to use it to clean my kitchen cupboards. I havent used it on my kitchen top as I tend to use a normal multisurface spray or multisurface wipes.

      All in all a cleaning product I would definately recommend!! Get down Asda now whilst its still on offer!!

      Thanks for reading.

        Worth a try!

        I colour my hair quite a bit usually highlights so my hair tends to go quite dry. I was looking for a product to help mantain the shine and moisture in my hair and came across this product on The Body Shop website.

        I usually use a conditioning treatment that you apply after you have washed your hair. However with this you damp the hair and comb through before washing the hair and leave for 15 minutes or depending on your hairs condition you can wrap your hair in a head towel and leave the product on over night. After rinse out and wash and condition as normal.

        The treatment states to restore and strenghthen dry/damaged or chemically treated hair and tp help reduce breakage, prevent damage from heat styling.

        The product contains Community trade Brazil nut, Olive and Sesame oils which add gloss.

        Wheat and brazil nut amino acides which penatrate the hair shaft to add moisture and improve manageability.

        I bought the product for £8 and this is for a 200ml tub. The treatment is quite thick so you do not need to use a lot and it comes with a strong smell of coconutty nuts! The smell actaully reminded me a bit of the sanctuary products, for those that have smelt this.

        The only problem I found was that as you apply to prewashed damp hair when trying to comb it my hair got quite tangeled as it is long and did not make my hair instantly smooth when trying to run the comb through.

        After applying the product I put my hair up and left for a few hours (i think next time Im going to try leaving it on over night as the directions state you can do). When I washed the product out of my hair I could instantly feel the softness. I then washed and conditioned my hair as normal.


        End Result: My Hair felt a lot more manageable and smoother and the dry parts of my hair that I usually notice were a lot more shiner and I could tell by just looking at it the extra moisture in my hair! The smell however I could not notice that much. I think as you wash your hair after this takes it away.

        Overall a good product which I would recommend!

        Im going to give this 4 out of 5 doo yoo stars, taking the one off as I find the product does not comb through my hair as easy as some other conditioning treatments I have previously used!

          Whats in your bag?!

          I carry my make up bag around with me everywhere its my little treasure!! Currently in my bag I have for my day time essentials are.....

          My ID Bare Minerals foundation, along with the matching ID brush appilcator - I love this foundation as it minerals its really kind on your skin so excellent for sensitive skin. For more info on this product you should read one of my previous reviews on it!!

          Mascara - I find mascara always work wonders to widen your eyes and is great just to wear even if wearing no other make up just to help your eyes stand out more.

          My current mascara is Maybelline The falsies volume Express. This is a great mascara and the brush is curved & thick so helps curl your eyelashes and thicken them for a false eyelash effect. Love it! This is usually around £6 in most shops.

          Vasaline rosy lips - This is another little god send handy to keep in your pockets! Ive currently started suffering with dry lips and this is great for moistursing and it has a subtle hint of pink in to add a little bit of colour to your lips. I usually wear lipstick of an evening but this is a great daytime product for your lips!

          Next in my bag is...

          The Body Shop matte & shimmer cheek colour palet. This is in a very small compact and consists of 4 different types of blush/pink colours to add a bit of colour & highlight your cheeks. 2 of the colours are Matte and the other 2 have a shimmer in. I really like the different colours in this and highlights your cheekbones nice, without being OTT.

          The price was a bit much I thought. This cost me £12 which does seem a lot, but on a good note you only need to use a little so does last quite a while!

          The last little thing hiding away is my Rimmel white eyeliner. I dont tend to wear black eyeliner that much as I feel it closes up my eyes but this I love. The white opens and brightens up your eyes more! I have used other brands of white eye liner but I found with others I have to go over the area to make it show more but with Rimmel it shows just with one stroke!

          Thanks for reading!!

            Can I go away now please?!

            I LOVE my holidays and and I have previously forgotten stuff in the past which is sooo annoying! Im going away in a few weeks so will use this as my checklist!

            So my checklist goes as follows:

            1) - My Hair Straightners!! - My hair is really thick and I have to have my straightners for smoothing out my hair as it looks awful and huge when I have just dried it. I also like to use the straightners for curling my hair as I actually find this quicker than straightning! Along with the hummidty of being on holiday if I forgot my straightners I would cry!

            Infact I went to San Fransisco a couple of years ago unaware the voltage over there was different to ours and my GHDS would not work! It was horrible all my photos are of me and my rubbish frizzy hair! Bad times!

            2) - Hair Dryer - Pretty much same as above these are a must! I know most hotels provide hair dryers but they are just not strong enough and would take my hair forever to dry due to how thick it is! So I need my powerful hairdryer to dry it fast!

            3) - A good book!! Like to take a good book away with me for when im lounging by the pool getting a bit of sun!

            4) - Cocoa Palmers Body Butter - I get a bit obsessed when Im away with getting a tan and can sometimes over do it! This body butter is great for after tanning as it helps extend the tan, makes my skin silky soft to postpone peeling! + its smells fantastic!

            5) - Sun Cream and After Sun - I have to use a good sun block as I fIND some cheapy ones are not very good and smell bad! I like to use one with a tan accelarater in it but with a good SPF to protect me.

            After sun is always a must as it helps cool your skin down after a day of sunbathing and prevent peeling. I usually like to use a gel one with aloe vera in and will keep it in the fridge so its extra cool! A killer though putting it in if you've had to much sun! I have been known to scream before putting this on when I was a bit sunburnt!

            6) - Sunglasses! Cannot go away on a summer holiday without your fave pair of sunnies!

            7) - Digital camera and Batteries! - I love my holiday photos so my camera is a definate essential along with some good quality batteries that will last, I usually use Duracell.

            8) - First Aid - With this I mean paracetmol, Alka Seltzer (for any hangovers!) stomach tablets, plasters. Nothing worse than being ill on holiday so I like to be prepared and take all my medicines!

            9) - My Make up - Anyone that knows me would know I would be livid if i forgot my fave make up products, Ie Bare Minerals foundation, my bronzer and mascara. I especially have to take away a chapstick with an spf in as my lips always go dry in the heat and have been known to burn before and I have had a little blister on my bottom lip. So always make sure I take one with a high SPF in.

            10) - Passport - Not going anywhere with out that!! Need I say more..

              Good for a little extra money!!

              I am always looking for a way to make some extra cash and was told about this website by a friend.

              One Poll is a survey site which you are paid for, easy to join fill in your name and email and thats about it! You are given a little bonus when you join of £2.50 put into your account to start you off!

              Once you have reached £40 this is when you will be paid out by cheque.

              Each survey that you do you are paid from as little as 5p or up to around 75p. The 75p ones are very occasional though. I think I have had about 2! Most of the time its around 10 - 20p!

              You can also earn money by referring friends. For each friend you refer that joins One Poll give you 50p. You can refer up to 10 friends, so if all 10 friends join thats £5!

              Aside from this when a friend you have referred earns £10 they'll give you 50p, then £1 once they reach £25 and then when they hit the £40 you'll receive £2.50...all helps!!

              The surveys on there range from anything about holidays, relationships, whats in your handbag, mobile phones anything you can think of really.

              The surveys itself only take a couple of minutes. In order to do the surveys you need to visit the website yourself log in and check under surveys available to you. Sometimes there can be none and then you can find there a quite a few on there to do.

              The surveys aren't hard to do just read the questions and pick the answer relevant to yourself, very quick and simple!

              I started using the website about 6 months ago and then stopped for a bit, I have currently started using it again and have about £16. Although I think it would probably take you a good few months to reach the £40, it all helps in me eyes! So each time Im on the internet now I check out the website to see if there are any available surveys which most of the time there is!

              I think its definiately worth just popping on and will be nice when I reach the £40!!

              Thanks for reading!

                A great series!

                If you have read any of my other reviews you can probably tell by now I am bit of a Twilight fanatic!! I can't compare this book to the others as I havent read them yet. This is the first book from the Twilight Saga I have read.

                After watching The New Moon on DVD I decided I couldn't wait untill June for Eclipse the film to come out so thought I would carry on the film with the book!!

                Eclipse is the third installment following on from The New Moon.

                After the pain Bella and Edward went through after there seperation and there near death miss with Volturi (vampire royalty). Edward agrees as per Bellas wish to turn her into a vampire however under the condition as requested by Edward that she marry him first. Edward also wants to postpone the "change" untill she has graduated.

                The book continues as graduation is coming round more quickly than she expected and she has to go through the heartbreak of what she is going to miss out on and what it will do to her family. But deep down this is all she wants, to be with Edward and does not want to live without him.

                Besides from Edward, Jacob Black ( Bellas best friend & werewolf!) is still on the case and wants Bella to choose him over Edward and is doing anything to make that happen. He trys to show her what life would be like if she were to choose him, as she wouldnt have to give up her family or her life...

                With the romance part to the side there is a some action in this book!! There are a series of murders in Seattle, which Edward Cullern and his family know are vampires, but newborn vampires...someone is creating them, but who??!! They have try and stop these killings as they also have reason to believe they are coming after Bella...

                Edward is also worried because if the murders continue the Volturi will soon come to town, which the Cullerns do not want as following on from New Moon no humans are to know they (vampires) exist and they gave Bella one chance to leave without them killng her as they saw an image of her in the future as a vampire. If they come back again and see her still human they wont give her a second chance....

                ******
                I really loved this book could not put it down! What I thought was really good is that the author goes into backgrounds of Edwards family introducing us as to how they became vampires and there history.

                I love the story between Edward, Bella and Jacob, I think the author is great portraying the chracters emotions.

                I have now started reading the last book (huge!) Breaking Dawn which I have only read a bit of and have already gobsmaked by some of the things that have happened..but wont go into that untill ive finished it and ill then do a review!

                Sooo excited for the film of this to be released!! A great book!

                Thanks for reading

                  read review!

                  As a smoker myself who is always trying to quit! I was actually quite glad when the smoking ban come into affect especially within pubs!

                  I used to find when being in a pub before the smoking ban I would literally walk into a cloud of smoke and my eyes would be red raw from it at the end of the night! I also thinks it helps smokers not to smoke so much when your out.

                  On occasions when I am out with family and I have to go outside for a fag I always feel quite rude and anti social!

                  I think smoking is not what it used to be and I think even as a smoker it has become very anti social.

                  I think it's great aswell as people that don't smoke even though there were smoking and non smoking areas for example in a restaurant the smoke still drifted! this being not very pleasant for non smokers. Also no one wants there kids being wafted with smoke!

                  Smoking as we all aware is very bad for your health so I think it was unfair to have smoking everywhere and put other people at risk as it is a fact that passive smoking can actually be more dangerous. So designated smoking areas I think was a good idea. Still fair on the smokers and fair on the non smokers for who didnt want to come back from somewhere stinking of an ashtray!

                  I hope one day I can quit for good, as I do find it a dirty habit! Just a shame its so addictive! More will power needed!

                    One of the most moving films Ive watched in a long while

                    I would just quickly like to say for anyone that has not watched this film and read any other reviews, watch what you are reading as a lot contain the spoilers of the film! Which i read in error and found out the ending oops! So be careful as its good not to know! I will not be revealing the spoiler!!

                    Remember me is a romantic drama film about Love, the stength of your family and living each day as if its your last. Going through painful, difficult and touching issues.

                    Set in 2001 Tyler (Robert Pattinson) plays a troubled uni student living in New York with issues regarding a previous family tragedy. Besides from this he does not have a good relationship with his dad (Pierce Brosnan).

                    Tyler only had one good friend Aidan (Tate Ellington) who is trying to get Tyler out more and get back to normal. On a night out they come into some trouble with the poilce and a particular officer who mistreats them both Neil Craig (Chris Cooper)

                    This is how the story then introduces Ally (Emille de Ravin) she also comes from a troubled past and is the daughter of the poilce officer Neil. Tyler and his friend wanting to get back at Neil for mistreating them, Tyler decides to try and date Ali, which he succeeds.

                    Not wanting anything more at first then to get back at the police the more time he spends with Ali he begins to fall for her, he finally begins to feel happiness and a meaning for life and someone that really understands him.

                    Besides the romance Tyler struggles with his relationship with his dad who doesnt seem to want to know him or his younger sister.

                    The realtionship Tyler has with his younger sister who is 10 is really sweet and touching as she to stresses to her older brother as to why her dad does not want to see her.

                    This film really touches you and is very emotional and I think a great film well worth the watch. Not just a typical american romance film which I thought it would be.

                    Watching Robert Pattinson in this film rather than Twilight I think he plays troubled character brilliantly. I am I admit a huge Robert Pattinson fan and at first just wanted to watch the movie for him alone! But I really, really enjoyed it the story is more than just about a romance and really does touch you.

                    I cant really say much more about this film otherwise ill spoil it for you all. Thanks for reading and go watch the film!!

                      Make a film plleeeeassse!!

                      Ok so I truly believe most people around the globe have at least watched one episode of Friends!! This was/is my all time fav sitcom so thought I would write my review on it!

                      For those people who havent watched it friends is about 6 friends (duh!) who live in Manhatten, New York and spend most of their time in the coffee house!

                      Monica - the cleaning freak (Courtney Cox)
                      Rachel - the pretty one (Jennifer Aniston)
                      Phoebe - away with the fairies (Lisa Kudrow)
                      Ross, Monicas brother - loves dinosaurs & Rachel , (David Schwimmer)
                      Joey - the I love women and food Man! (Matt Le Blanc)
                      Chandler - the sarcastic one! (Matthew Perry)

                      At the beginning of the first series it introduces you to the chracters who are already ready friends apart from Rachel hanging out in there coffee House Central Perk! Then we are introduced to Rachel, who has just ran out of her wedding! and finds Monica (her old school friend)...and then it begins!

                      It's good as it goes through normal everyday issues that we can all relate to. Relationship issues, job issues , money etc.

                      Although the show is a comedy which has had us all in tears there are also serious moments throughout the 10 series! Comedy value though of this programme is brilliance!

                      What I loved most was everyone new the characters inside out, they were like your own friend! We all have our fave characters mine being Chandler and Ross!

                      Chandler for his hillarious sarcasm and fear of women !

                      Ross for the situations he gets himself to i.e stuck in leather trousers on a date! Overbleaching his teeth, saying the wrong womans name at his wedding! the list goes on

                      Every one has there favourite moment from each episode and from series 3 - 10 you know we were all wanting Rachel & Ross to get back together!!

                      I was gutted when this programme finished in fact I did shed a tear! I dont think they'll be a show like this for a while. :(

                      A great thing about this series is now (for those that dont own the dvds) the price has come right down to around £40 - £50 in HMV for the boxset of series 1 - 10. Worth every penny i'd say!

                        I first wrote a review on the 2nd film The New Moon as after watching this one i completely loved it! When I first watched this first film I liked it but wasn't like wow! But after loving the 2nd film I bought Twilight on DVD and have watched it numerous times now I love it!!



                        The film begins with Bella Swan (Kirsten Stewart) moving from her Mums in Arizona to the small town of forkes within Washington. Bella starts her new school and is told about the Cullerns and how they keep themselves to themselves! But Bella instantly has an attraction to Edward (Robert Pattinson).



                        She then finds one of her classes is with him and has to sit with him but he is rather rude to her and will not speak. This is because from the moment he seen her he feels something for her not just love but he badly craves her blood! Edward also has a skill of reading minds but for some known reason he cannot read Bellas! After an awkward lesson Edward does not return to the school for days, leaving Bella a bit baffeled as to why he does not like her!!



                        Edward returns to the school and the pair finally speak. The film continues and Bella notices how pale his skin is and his colour changing eyes. She then realises there is something definitley not normal with him when he saves her from being crushed by a van...he appears from nowhere and pushes the car with one quick tap away from her! which he puts down to as an adrenial rush! He then appears from nowhere to save her from a group of men about to attack her. Bella cannot understand why he is so protective over her and then next minute is cold with her and asks her to stay away from him

                        Bella begins to feel really drawn to Edward hes like no one she has ever met before and he seems to see straight in to her soul. Little does she know of his familys dark secret he is a vampire (without the fangs!) and they do not drink human blood, unlike the other vampires roaming around. As his secret begins to unravel she pieces all of the puzzle together.

                        His cold pale skin, his speed and strength and is knowing of other peoples thoughts..she then confronts him and the secret is out.

                        Beside Edward, Bella is close to family friend Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) although he is not in this film that much it's introducing him and his chracter for the 2nd Film the New Moon in which we found out he is a werewolf!

                        Besides from the romance in this film there are a series of killings going on in the town in which the police have no leads. This is the "bad vampires" stalking the town who evantually find Bella and the Cullerns have to try and protect her........

                        Towards the end Bella decides she wants to be with Edward meaning forever and she wants to be changed into a vampire.....

                        ********

                        This film is a definate one for the ladies with the romance and the hunky cast! although it also the fantasy/action to it. I did manage to get my boyfriend to watch it who said it was "ok!". I do love the story of the film and the second one is great (please read review to know more!).

                        I think the 2nd film is better than this but then you have to watch this to set the story and know the characters. I can't wait for the 3rd film to be released!

                          How nice would life be!

                          I always think about what I would do if I won the lottery and without a doubt the first thing would be pay off my debts! straight away!!

                          The day after winning the lottery I would ensure my family have booked a holiday of there choice, I would then travel round the world!

                          Next is making sure that my close family are looked after mortgages paid and debts. I would also help out my closest friends.

                          Then back to myself where I would buy a large house buy the sea or in the country (anywhere with nice surroundings). I would need to make sure that the gardens were huge and would buy 2 beagles! Then on a seperate area of the house a garden where the beagles cant get into I would adopt loads of bunnies for them to live there!!

                          My house would also need to have a large outdoor and indoor pool along with a gym! and one room with a cinema size TV and luxury sofas!

                          Next thing would be a converatable! and a holiday home not sure where yet somewhere with views of the ocean and white sands! Maybe Florida or California.

                          I would love to also hire out Thorpe Park or Alton Towers for the day!

                          I would still have to work as I would get bored so maybe invest in my own business probably have my own salon.

                          The list really could go on and on!

                          Writing about all these things now makes me really wish i will win the lottery! Although to do this I should really start playing more! I only do it on odd occasions! I think as from now on i'll make it a regular saturday thing!

                            A great body butter for those beauty treats!

                            I am one of those girls that likes to have all the beauty essentials in my house! This product in particular is one of my fave!!

                            I am big fan of the body shop and do love there body moisturisers but do find them quite expensive so dont get them that much! Over Christmas I was on the Body shop website buying pressies and there was an offer on to spend over £25 and you will receive this free shimmer body butter!
                            Originally I was going to use it as a present but decided to treat myself and keep it!

                            The body butter is for normal to dry skin and contains virgin coconut oil and a subtle shimmer. The cream is very thick which I love in body butters and a little goes a long way! The smell is also unbeliveable it's gorgeous I actually want to eat it!

                            One evening when I was going out I was upstairs and my boyfriend walked through the front door and could instantly smell the moisturiser! He came in asking what that Nice coconut smell was! So this cream leaves you smelling lush!

                            I do use body cream everyday however this one I use for when im going out. The shimmer in the cream gives you a nice glow and your skin is left feeling silky soft.

                            A 200ml tub at this time costs £12.50 - however the body shop do always have a lot of offers on the body butters, some offers include 50% off. I have signed up to there website as they'll send you emails instantly with great offers! So something worth doing!!

                            Remember also a little goes a long way with this - you only need to use a small amount at a time. If you use to much it can be a little greasy.

                              A must have deodorant!

                              I was first given a sample of this deodorant and loved it! As unlike other deodorants on the market that have a plain, talcy smell and generally not that nice! Nivea double effect comes with a nice perfumed smell like flowers!

                              Since I was given a free sample of this, it has been a must have for me and have not used anything else!

                              The product has a designed formula with natural avacado extract for smoother underarms for longer and is designed to give you a closer shave.

                              I do think this product is a little overpriced compared to some other brands. However you do pay for what you get. The usually price for a 250ml bottle is around £2.80 - £3.00. I have found it on offer at Morrisions for 2 bottles for £4, so with offers like this i tend to stock up!!

                              The deodorant does have a long lasting freshness, so will keep you fresh for the day. I used to find with some deodorants I sometimes had to reapply during the day.

                              I do think it smoothes your underarms as mine do feel a lot softer. As for a closer shave I haven't really noticed that in all honesty!! I would definately recommend this product also for people with sensitive skin as it is extremely soft and there is 0% alcohol in and no colourants.

                              All in all a good deodorant and will for sure continue to use this!!

                                Bye Bye blackheads!

                                I bought this product as i have been suffering with blackheads lately around my nose and had previously heard about facial pore strips.

                                I bought these boots own brand ones as they were the cheapest ones I saw! Although still £4.49 (6 strips provided), boots had an offer on 3 4 2 mix n match beauty products.

                                These facial strips contain antibacterial Tea Tree Oil and skin calming Witch Hazel to help your skin clear and healthy by:

                                *Remove dirt and oil by lifting it out of your facial pores
                                * Helping to remove blackheads
                                * helps to tighten pores and prevent future breakouts.
                                * When used regulary, the strips diminish the apperance of pores.

                                How to use:

                                Wet your face and then and apply the strip to the relevant place (chin/nose). Press down firmly to ensure the strip sticks. Leave the strip then to dry for about 15 minutes. When the strip starts to feel stiff gently peel off.

                                I have been using this product for about 2 weeks now and must admit I do like it i feel that my blackheads arent as visable and the area feels a lot cleaner and not as oily.

                                The instructions say to use particular attention to chin and forehead...Forehead? I would not advise you do this! After the strip has been left on it does go rock solid and is stuck solid! Each time I have used a strip and pulled it off it has made my eyes water! Maybe I'm leaving it on to long..but beauty is pain and you can feel the blackheads in a way being pulled out! As gross as it sounds thats the job its there for!! If you do look closely at the strip after using you can see the stuff its pulled out! Gross again but shows the product has worked!!

                                A product I would recommend does to me what it says! - just remember to have a tissue ready for the watering eyes!!

                                  A great unforgettable day out

                                  I had always wanted to swim with dolphins and had the chance before visiting Florida to do this - however this was with wild dolphins in the open sea! But me being a wimp and scared of being to far out in the sea i didnt bother doing it.

                                  I had planned to go to Discovery Cove as soon as I had booked to go to Florida to get my ambition done of swimming with dolphins! Although I thought at first the price was bit much I didn't want to miss my chance!

                                  For anyone that has been to Florida you will understand it is not so much of relaxing holiday when you are hitting the theme parks everyday. However with this park they only allow a certain amount of people a day to visit (so book in early!). It is much more of a relaxing day.

                                  I stayed on International Drive and was able to get the I Ride (tram) to Sea World which takes about 10 minutes. When you get to Sea World there are phone booths which say Discovery Cove on and you press the button for the operator which then lets them know you are there and a little shuttle bus comes for you! This then takes you to Discovery Cove (literally a 2 minute drive)

                                  When you arrive you receive your pass for the day and they advise you of your time that you will receive your reserved 30 minute dolphin swim.

                                  Aside from your dolphin swim the rest of your day there is a bird aviary to visit, Wind away river where you receive your goggles & snorkle to practice your under water swimming! You also receive unlimited access to the tropical reef and stingray lagoon where you can snorkle with the stingrays and fish..which i admit found scary! There is then also a man made beach where you can unwind and do a bit of sunbathing!

                                  There are also free lockers provided to keep your belongings safe.

                                  With whatever package you get your breakfast, lunch and unlimited drinks (inc alcohol), there is also a selection of snacks included throughout the day. There are a few packages to to choose from all include a ticket of your choice to either Seaworld or Busch Gardens - for either one of them you choose it gives you 14 days admission. This is the package I took which inc the 30 min dolphin swim which cost about £180.

                                  A package is also available for the non dolphin swim which is a little cheaper roughly around £140. But to be honest I don't see the point in not doing the dolphin swim!

                                  When it came to our dolphin swim you are in a group of around 6 - 8 and it starts with the trainer showing you a video about dolphins and the way the live, there intelligence etc they also cover the health & safety aspects of the swim. Once in the water the trainer starts showing you how to do tricks with the dolphins and you are able to feed them. You then begin to have your photos taken with the dolphin. They also show you how to kiss the dolphin (photo taken) which is very sweet! You then take it turns to swim with the dolphin. The trainer will show you how to hold on to them and then they take you out for a swim! All in all Im glad I paid the money for this day out as to me it is once in a lifetime. At the end of your day you get to view your photos and choose which you would like to have. This does make the total of your day more as of course you have to pay for you pictures! But they really are worth it. The dolphin experience is also filmed and you are able to buy the disc for this however we just decided on the photos!

                                  I would advise before hand buying an underwater camera, we forgot to buy one and had to buy one on site, where it was a little pricey!

                                  For the best prices for tickets I would try www.attraction-tickets-direct.co.uk , this is who we booked with.
