I have always had really annoying hair. It is long, thick and very curly with a tendancy to frizz on wet of humid days. Anyone who has experienced the 'halo' effect whilst wearing a ponytail with empathise with me immediately. I have tried practically EVERY leave in conditioner on the market, for the last 15 years in am attempt to tame my unruly tresses. This was the first hair oil I have triend and it has transformed my life!I bought this from Asda for 50p in the sale. I thought it was worth a try but I wasn't expecting much, based on the myriad of hair products I have tried in the past.
The very first time I used this was while my hiar was wet, straight after I had washed it. To my suprise, my brush went straight through my hair! This is unheard of! It normally takes a lot of swearing and about 15 minutes! Pleasantly pleased, I then went on to blow dry my hair. This took much less time than usual and my hair was let feeling soft and looking shiny. Most importantly, however, it was frizz free! I was amazed!
Since that day I have used this both on dry hair and wet. I really does work miracles.
As you only need about 3 drops per application, the bottle has lasted months. I would recomment this product to anyone who has thick/curly hair but not to those with fine or very short hair as it ,ay be a little heavy for them.
Always a fan of Dr. Seuss, I bought this book for my little boy and he loves it! The story centres on 'Sam', who wants his friend to try a new food, green eggs and ham and he tries numerous ways of persuading him to take a bite (a familiar scene at most family meal times with new foods!) Each page repeats words and phrases so children soon begin to get the hang of the lovely rhyming language. It is a brilliant text for young learners for several important reasons. Firstly, the pictures are bright, colourful and funny, which engages the interest of a child immediately. Secondly, the text itself is highly repetitive, meaning from the very first reading a child can enjoy joining it with the book. This not only builds confidence, but becomes a useful speech and language exercise.
The book also uses humour very effectively at the correct level for a young child. This humour captures the interest of the reader and provides a really encouraging 'fun' learning experience. It is vital that children enjoy books from a young age as this gives them a brilliant foundation for literacy as they grow up.
After a few reading my son began to seek out this book and point out simple words to me, all the while laughing at the green eggs and ham, and how far the character would go to avoid them!
As an overview, I would encourage every parent to buy this book for their child, there are many other Dr. Seuss books but this one will always be my son's favourite because he can 'read' it!
I was caught in town a few weeks ago and realised I'd left my trusted lip salve at home, a real pet hate of mine so I decided to buy this. I have used carmex for years but always the original in the little pot, so I decided to give this a whirl.
It is horrible! When I applied it, the applicator hole seemed too large so quite a lot came out. After wiping most of it off, I then noticed a perculiar taste in my mouth. It was a bit like the taste of a nut that's gone off. I actually had to spit on the floor (very lady like!) to get rid of the taste. It was very unpleasant.
Now, not one to be easily deterred, I tried it again a couple of days later. after all, I'd bought it by now ans I don't lik waste. I was very careful this time to put the correct amount of lipsalve on my lips. I was still quite heavy and gunky. The strange taste also returned, so I have come to the conclusion that cherry really isn't for me. Now, to be fair, it may just be the cherry flavour, although I doubt that as with their original product I've always been fine. Maybe cherry just isn't for me!
I would not recommend this product as I believe it's too think and tastes horrible.
I absolutely LOVE this book. It has everything you could ever want. A historical context, romance, friendship and the everlasting adventure that is true love. It is not a happy, clappy book but thought provoking. It is a converation starter and really examines the relationship between the plantation owners and their slaves. In a non-judgmental way, this book clearly points out HOW the plantation owners thought of their slaves and presents an almost family orientated relationship, despite what you may have heard or read in the past. Now, by no way, do I feel slavery is, was or ever will be right, it's just very interesting reading about it from a different point of view.
Of course, quite clearly, from the other (and right) point of view, slavery is wrong. It should never have happened.
The romance between Rhett and Scarlett has to be the best love story ever told. I completely adore it. I won't spoil the ending for you, but the bitter sweet emphasis of those final words has struck a chord in many a heart, and will continue to do so infinately in the future.
If you hav not read this book, then DO! You Must! It's amazing! I have read it so many times that I'm on my 3rd copy because the others have all been read unitl they fell apart. Now, to put that into context, I only ever read a book once and usually get through 2 or 3 a week. I am an avid reader, but somehow, Gone With the Wind has always, and will remain, my absolute favourite!
I have always like Samsung as a brand and have both fridgefreezer and a TV of this make, so when it came to replacing my poor, broken H.P. laptop, I naturally sought out a Samsung one. I hve never regretted this decision. It was very basic and easy to set up (literally plug it in and away you go!)
The top is black, shiny and desn't scratch easily and despite the fact that I really use this a lot, it is still going strong. I have found the storage (memory) perfectly ample for my movies, photographs and music. It is easy to negotiate and is speedy provided my internet is up to scratch.
I bought this laptop in the sale at Comet for £499, which was very reasonable considering it has windows 7 already loaded on it and a variety of multi-media packages for the more creative soul. There is a built in webcam, which my little boy really enjoys using, and it came with a decent anti-virus (although I'm not sure if that's standard, or just put on by the shop.)
I have had absolutely no problems with this laptop at all and I would highly recommend this product very highly.
As a single mother of a 4 year old who LOVES beans, I am usually on the look out for a slightly cheaper variety, mind you, aren't we all with the credit crunch?! I bought these beans a couple of weeks ago as they are only 33p in my Asda and none of the other brands had any offers on.
I was pleasantly suprised at the consistency of this porduct. Quite often, the much cheaper tins of beans tend to be watery, but not so with this tin.
The taste was nice enough to win over a very fussy (bean conisure) 4 year old and I was happy with both the taste and the price. Luckily, I bought more than one tin, because they are flying off my shelves!
I am always conscious of the calories content in food and I was pleasantly suprised to find that these were actually slightly less calorific than the brand I tend to get.
Overall, my son and I both really enjoyed these beans and I fully intend to keep them as a staple part of my shopping list in the future! Well done Asda!
I had wanted a Blackberry forever! It was with much excitment, I upgraded to my lovely Blackberry on Vodaphone last year. I literally couldn't wait, and I have not been disappointed! I LOVE it!
You see, I am a massive fan of buttons, yes buttons, on a mobile phone. None of that annoying touch screen business for me. I hate it! Maybe I've got fat fingers or something but I just can't be doing with it!
When I recieved my new phone I found using it simplicity itself!
The Blackberry is small enough to fit into the pocket of my jeans, but big enough so that I can text using the all important buttons with no problem whatsoever!
I love it.
The only problem that I've had with this smart phone is that it can get a little tempermental at times, very rrarely though. By this, I mean that occasionally I have had to switch it off, take the battery out and then turn it back on again so the computer re-boots. This sounds like a massive hassle but actually it's only happened twice in the last year so I'm not too worried about it.
The colour is nice and the handset has remained nice and shiny, despite the fact that I have dropped it on occassion...
All in all, I would definately recommend this phone. It is lovely and matched my lifestyle perfectly!
I originally bought this product about 5 months ago and I have been extremely pleased with the results. I found myself excessively sweating and I had no confidence at all. I found that when I first used this product that it stung a little under my arms. This abated after the first few applications and now I use this twice a week along side my other, spray, deodorant.
This smell of perspirex isn't very nice so I do find the need to try and mask this with perfume and another spray. However, this is a small price to pay for being virtually sweat free and smelling fresh with no hint of b.o.
This product does cost a lot, but it lasts for a long time as you don't need to use it every day. They also do a price back guarantee with specially marked packs so if you don't get on with it, provided you have the marked pack and your receipt, you can get your money back if needs be.
This is quite simply the BEST body scrub I have EVER used! It is totallt brilliant!
It smells divine and a little goes a long way. I got this for Christmas and I won't ever be using anything else, ever!
My skin has been transformed by this product. It leaves it soft, completely smooth and moisturised.
I have also noticed a distinct reduction in the cellulite on my legs since using this product and I literally cannot praise it highly enough. It is amazing!
It is slightly pricey, but worth every penny. I have been using this product now, three times a week in the bath, all over (except my face of course!) I have found that as I only need to use a little, the one bottle I do have will last me a long time so this means the price isn't as much of a consideration as normal.
I got a bottle of this for Christmas and it is lovely! I can use it both in the shower and the bath and it leaves my skin feeling soft, mosturied and clean. I have also used this as bubble bath because it smells so delicious! I would recommend this to a friend.
My only reservation with this product is that it is slightly more expensive than my usual shower gel. It is available in the sales at the moment however, so my plan is to go and get several more bottles to use once this one is finished. On the plus side, however, as with all Soap and Glory products, a little goes a long way, so this bottle should last me a reasonable amount of time and I would rather spend slightly more for a superior product.
All Soap and Glory products, in my experience, are very good. I also very much enjoy the little quotes on the bottles. They always make me laugh!
I recently bought this product. I found that the smell is absolutely lovely! It hasn't left any white marks on my clothing and I would certainly buy this product again. It is a little pricey, but you do tend to get what you pay for! My only slight reservation with this product is that it is fine for light exercise but I found the need to re-apply doing my gym sessions. That said, the bottle does last for a long time reguardless of this.
The product is attractively packaged and can quite often be found in a variety of supermakets and chemists as part of a 3 for 2 deal, which brings the price per unit down quite substantially. I would recomment this product, and have done, to friends as it smells so lovely and definately does what it says on the tin! It also comes in a wide variety of fragrances to please any taste!
I've just bought valeline pocket sized original for myself. I am finding it is brilliant for these winter days. Although it doesn't have an SPF, it provides a protective layer on my lips which is lovely in this cold weather. I am also finding I don't need to re-apply it as often as some others I have tried i the past. The price is also brilliant!!!
My only slight gripe with this product is that it isn't terribly hygienic. As long as you wash your hands before application, it should be fine but I do wonder if it's a bit of a germ magnet! I've also found this very useful for my little boy, who is 4. He tends to get dry skin at the edges of his mouth in the winter so I've been applying a thin layer around his mouth before we walk to school. Now his skin is fine and his lips and the edges of his mouth have stopped chapping. All in all, a very good product!
