I remember charlie red from my teenage days as all who have tried this perfume would say the same,
bring's back so many memories.I remember before going out with my friend's for a night out spraying some charlie red and feeling excited to go out and live it up,i still buy this perfume till this day and the smell reminds me of some good times.
I love the smell of this perfume it has a classic and sophisticated aroma and long lasting smell,not overpowering in anyway just right.
Charlie red comes in a perfume bottle and aslo a body spray,the body spray is just as nice,i wear this perfume on a day to day basis and people always comment on the smell saying its really nice and ask what perfume is it,when i reveal to them its charlie red they are surprised.
Another bonus of this perfume is of coarse the price is easily affordable,i get my charlie red perfume from a shop in halesowen called body care and it's 5:00 and it's also this price in ASDA and the body spray at the moment is 1:00 in ASDA but is normally 1:33.Its a great bargain for a great smell,excellent for a christmas or birthday gift too.
I would urge anyone to try this perfume if you have not already tried it,trust me you wont regret it and to be honest for 5:00 you cant grumble,it may become your new favourite perfume ; if you dont want to pay 5:00 at first you could try the body spray and see what you think.?

I had never tried these montagne jeunesse face mask's ,until the other day and i was pleasently surprised by how good they are.The 'crystal masque' sounded very appealing and promised to soften and condtion your skin with soothing passion flower,invigorating dead sea salts and condtioning argan oil.
The packaging on this mask is a little bit deceptive-in the photograph,the mask looks very claylike.And it really isn't,the mask is actually like a light pink gel it doesnt set or go solid like other face mask's do,which i liked as i dont like the tight feeling on your face that other face mask's
Following the instructions,i cleansed my face with warm water and placed the sachet in hot water for a minute.Then i applyed evenly to my face,and my neck the gel felt quite sticky but it felt quite soft too and smelt very sweet and fruity.I chilled out on the sofa and waited for 15 minutes,the smell of the gel smelt good enough to eat really yummy.After waiting 15 minutes i rinsed the gel off with warm water and patted my face dry,ahhh lush.
After rinsing,my skin looked clear and fresh,it felt really smooth,and felt very moisterised just like it says on the sachet.The face mask also left a yummy fruity smell on my face that just makes you feel fresh and so clean.
Overall i was really happy with this mask,i think i am going to get a little addicted to this one now.
i will be stocking up on this mask again,5 out of 5 stars from me,give it a go the yummy smell and feeling of fresh smooth skin afterwards will have you addicted too.
You can buy this product from Asda it's 99p which i think is great value for a great product :)

So glad to be back online pheww,bet you all are too.
I first come across this foundation in my local supermarket ( asda ) ,it was slightly different to what i normally use ; the type of foundation i normally use is rimmel and its of a liquid form not mousse such as this one.
But i thought i'd give it a go,and try something different,the same day i purchased this foundation i had to give it a go to see what it was like.
I removed all of my make up and appiled moisteriser then rubbed some of the foundation to my skin,the first thing i noticed was the feel of it on my skin.
The feel of the foundation felt soft and greasy,and i found while appling my blusher to my cheeks once the foundation was rubbed into my skin throughly that the blusher was not staying on my skin.
I decided to give it a test trial anyway,i used this product for 3 days and wasn't very happy at all,the foundation i found did not stay on my skin all day like the one i normally use which is rimmel ( lasting finish ), which is in price 5.98 ; which is slightly cheaper than maybeline dream matte mousse foundation.
And in my opinion alot better quality,but each to there own i much prefer the rimmel product.
Why not buy it and try it and see what you think.
Thankyou for reading.
I came across this body wash in asda the other day,i love dove products so i decided to check it out.
You can use this product in the bath or shower,i myself run the shower and rubbed the body wash on my skin,the feel of it was so smooth and silky on my skin and really refreshing ; and the smell of the body wash is really fresh and had a sweet hint to it,really nice.
When all washed off,i got out the shower and dried myself ; i touched my skin and could really feel a difference i couldn't believe how soft i felt.My skin smelt really sweet and clean and wonderfull,and i felt like it had really moisturised my skin,and when putting on my p.js i felt all soft and clean,pure bliss.
Price of product
I have only ever brought this out of asda,and the price i paid was 1.00 on rollback but the normal price for this is 2.00 bottle 250ml .I should imagine its at other store's too :)
I am very happy to have come across this product, the bottle is 250ml and would last you up to 2 weeks at the most which i think is great value for the results you get.Once the bottle is used up i wont hesitate to get another.
I would reccomend this product to you ladies who like soft,silky clean and refreshing body wash's,leaves you feeling and smelling great.

As i am a big fan of chocolate its no surprise that this spread got me excited,not only is it of great taste the price isn't bad either,the current price for this spread is just 1.00 for 200g from asda it is this price due to being on rollback the normal price when not on rollback is 1.36 ; the 400g chocolate spread is 1.90.Which i think is a fair price for this scrummy product.
When you open the jar you will be pleasantly surprised at the smell of this product it's gorgeous,its rich a chocolatey smell that just hit's you and leave's you just wanting to tuck in.The consistency of this spread is smooth,thick and creamy which i love.
Whats also great is that kids love this chocolate spread and it a great balanced breakfast for them as it release's energy slowly Nutritionists tell us that a balanced breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Spreading a portion of delicious nutella (15g or equivalent of 2 teaspoons) onto a slice of wholegrain toast, then adding a bowl of cereal (unsweetened) with milk or a glass of pure fruit juice can be a good tasty breakfast combination.
And because nutella is packed with hazelnuts, it releases energy slowly. When enjoyed as part of a balanced breakfast on wholegrain toast, it might help you/your child feel fuller for longer.
There are two hazelnuts, skimmed milk and a dash of cocoa in every serving of nutella (15g) and its smooth richness means you can spread it straight onto bread so there's no need to use butter or an alternative fat spread. This means that a portion of nutella (15g) on toast contains less fat (3.5g less) and sugar (2.2g less) than jam and butter on toast (measured against a 15g portion of jam with 10g butter.
I love this delicious chocolate spread on toast,crackers and bread roll's but either way it's scrummy.
Ingredients for this product are
Sugar , Vegetable Oil , Hazelnuts (13%) , Fat-Reduced Cocoa (7.4%) , Skimmed Milk Powder (6.6%) , Whey Powder , Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin) , Vanillin .
I have also found another way of enjoying this great tasting spread,i have made these and checked them out for myself they are fab.
Chocolate Nutella Cookies Recipe
Print OptionsPrint (no photos)Print (with photos)
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of white sugar
1 cup of Nutella
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of chopped hazelnuts
1 Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter in an electric mixer for 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the sugars and Nutella and mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl to ensure even mixing.
2 Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for 30 seconds between each. Add the vanilla and mix for 10 seconds.
3 Sift together the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda (do not skip this step as sifting eliminates clumps of cocoa). Mix into the butter mixture on low speed until fully incorporated, scraping down the bottom and sides at least once to ensure even mixing. Fold in the chocolate chips and hazelnuts and refrigerate the dough for ten minutes.
4 Spoon tablespoon-sized drops of dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on the sheets for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Makes 6 dozen.
Great for baking with the kids :)

This fim is absolutley hillarious,you will cry with laughter.
John Beckwith (Owen Wilson ) and Jeremy Grey ( Vince Vaughn ) , a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air.Divorce mediators John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey are business partners and lifelong friends who share one truly unique springtime hobby--crashing weddings! Whatever the ethnicity of the wedding party--Jewish, Italian, Irish, Chinese, Hindu--the charismatic and charming duo always have clever back stories for inquisitive guests and inevitably become the hit of every reception, where they strictly adhere to their proven rules of wedding crashing to meet and pick up women aroused by the very thought of marriage. At the tail end of another successful season of toasting brides and grooms, Jeremy learns that the daughter of Treasury Secretary William Cleary and his wife, Kathleen, is getting married in what is sure to be the Washington D.C. social event of the year. After infiltrating the lavish affair, John and Jeremy quickly set their sights on two bridesmaids, Claire and Gloria Cleary . Things go well until John falls for Claire Cleary while Jeremy finds himself trapped with the frighteningly clingy Gloria as the pair accept an invitation back to the weekend retreat of the Cleary family.

I went shopping tonight(tesco's) and came across this bag of jumbo scampi by young's,the price was quiet reasonable as it was young's ( a good brand if one may say) and the fact that it was jumbo scampi with a hint of lemon,had my mouth drooling (literally) :)
I popped it in my trolley and was thinking what to have with it,some steamed broccoli,garlic potatoes and tarta sauce yummy i can't wait i thought to myself.
I got home unloaded my shopping (oh the joy's) and decided to have my jumbo scampi that i'd just brought
i could'nt wait, i was excited to see what they tasted like,so preheated my oven opened the packet of jumbo scampi,stared at it and thought to myself and actually said outloud i thought it was jumbo scampi?they are very small, i looked at the packet just to check that it said jumbo and i wasn't imagining it,nope says jumbo
which varyfied i'm not going mad.I also noticed that in total there were about 7 pieces of scampi that weren't jumbo in size and were meant to be,needless to say i was very dissapointed with my scampi but i ate it anyway just to see if the taste would make up for the false advertising.
The scampi itself was succulent but the lemon hint that i would hardly call a hint ruined it for me,
the lemon taste was really strong and overpowerd the scampi.
Such a shame i was so looking forward to eating this product,least i know to not to buy it again in the future.
But if you would like to check this scampi for yourself you can find it at any tesco's,the price at the moment for this product is 2.39 valid until 6/12/2010 the price for this product with out the offer is 5.99.

Do you believe in ghosts ?
I know that I sure do; whether you're a believer or skeptic I would like to share my ghostly experiences with... So take a trip into the unknown realms with me.
It all started when I was 11 my Grandma had passed away I was playing with my ball outside like children often did back then now its all video games anyway; I was so happy and content I looked up and saw my Grandma (who had passed) looking down at me smiling and then she waved at me! I ran into the house scared but curious as to what had just happened that's just one story let me share some more with you.
I remember when me and my brother were at our old house in Meredith street within the West Midlands it was night time we were listening to some music then all of a sudden my brother saw a face in our glass living room door I didn't see it but I got scared at my brothers reaction, he opened the door nothing there so we made our way up stairs to check it out how brave we were! lol Me scared run into my brothers room we stood there is silence and heard a man groan we both looked at each other in shock, we looked down stairs to see if my dad had come back as he was out no one was there and it didn't come from outside trust me. Needless to say we were on edge but just got on with things my dad finally sold the house in the end not due to the fact that it was fricking haunted because he didn't believe in such things as the afterlife and beyond.
During the time my dad was selling the house I lived with my mom, but one night I had to stay back at my dads (the house he was selling at the time) I saw him in the day when I went back on the night I walked in switched the lights on and the power tripped! (The trip switch didn't work either) Great, I thought feeling a bit uneasy of staying there alone and the things that had happened there (all the bumps in the night) I walked to my brother's new place to get some candles. I returned back to my dads and lit them walked upstairs to go to bed I got comfy and thought I was in for a good nights sleep boy was I wrong! I glanced over at the door as I heard creaking on the landing; I closed my eyes thinking it was nothing then I opened them and saw two feet in the gap of the door I was so terrified that I couldn't move. I closed my eyes again opened them then the feet were gone I looked out the window to see if my dad had come back, but there was no car on the drive. I got myself up and started to check the house scared out my mind holding a candle no one there needless to say I had a sleepless night.
Other things have happened to me in the past all very strange, for example I remember when I moved to the George Inn Pub in Halesowen of the West Midlands. I moved there with my mom all seemed ok when we first moved there, after a couple of weeks the attics on the top room where I slept kept opening by themselves and you have to really push to open them which I thought was very odd, then all kinds of strange things started to happen noises in my room like tapping on the windows a few nights. I woke up to my bed shaking and my bed was not easy to shake, hearing walking along the attic in my room and breathing in my ear so even though no one was there. I moved rooms thinking it would some how make a difference; the other room I moved into across the hall was just as bad.
I was awoke by a girl saying wake up in my ear I thought it was all in my head till the previous owner of the pub had the same room as me and was awoken by a girl saying wake up because at the time the pub was on fire the women left her cigarette lit and if it wasn't for the ghostly girl saying wake up the women would have died.
My mother who stayed on the first floor of the pub heard whispering and pages being flicked in her room and just a sense someone was there; also her partner saw a man in the bathroom. My mom's partner started to shout saying 'what the hell are you doing in here' and he vanished. Upon investigating we saw a picture of the old pub owner (photo around 35 years old), and it matched just how the ghost looked in the bathroom. He had also seen a man in the living room sitting at the table all very strange and unexplainable.
So fact or fiction when it comes to the unknown, is it all just our imaginations?
I'm very much a believer after all I have many unexplainable experiences and they didn't all happen when I was alone so it couldn't have been my mind playing tricks on me. There have been friends/family with me and who also witnessed a ghostly event.
All I know is that during my sightings over the years is that I believe and shall always continue to believe, the feeling at the time was unsettleling to say the least. Thinking that ghosts were just for stories but I soon found out how very real they are.
I know there will be people thinking there must have been some explanations, like the mind playing tricks when you already feel a little on edge being left alone in a large house. BUT that feeling you get of being watched seeing something there and gone the next, the noises, others also seeing; how do you explain that?
For me ghosts are very much real.

If you love a good comedy flick like me you will love this movie it's absolutely brilliant! It has become one of my favorites over the years. It has a cool funky classic soundtrack from music from the one and only Billy idol, The Police, Boy George, The Thompson Twins, Elvis Costello, David Bowie, New Order, The Smiths and many more to the hilarious singing of Mr Adam Sander himself.
Overall this movie for me is complete comedy genius; the cast/crew all acted well together which made for better watching/entertainment on the viewers front. For me a movie that to this day despite being over 10 years old a modern classic that will keep up with the times and can compete with any new comedy on the market today.
I have watched this film many times with family and friends and even on my own when I have had a bad day or I am feeling a little bit down I put this flick on and it always cheers me up. If you have been in love let down relationship, broken up with a loved one this film never fails to cheer you up.....
This film is a great movie to watch with the family, your friends or you partner specially with a bucket of popcorn, some fizzy pop and some Doritos with dips haha
Have fun watching it and I hope it makes you laugh and smile like it has me many times, a must see movie and five out of five stars from me!
