      watch it youll be hooked

      I've just recently came across Supernatural as I missed the hype when it first came out so I thought I'd watch it now. Supernatural is an American television programme based on you guessed it supernatural goings on.
      Supernatural is based around two brothers Sam and Dean Winchester who when they were young lost their mother in very strange and tragic circumstances. I don't want to give too much away but season one is centred on their mothers death and finding out why she died. Sam and Dean hunt supernatural beings by touring America investigating unusual deaths. This all leads to them getting closer to finding out why their mother died.

      My first impressions of Supernatural are it's pretty amazing to be honest hehe. I found the plot really good and had you gripped I was quite addicted I can't wait to see season two. The main character Sam Winchester is played by Jared Padalecki who was also in The Gilmore Girls his character is the quiet brother who is always seeking his fathers approval all though all is not what it seems with his character. I thought Jared was really good in his role I love him as an actor. Dean Winchester is played by Jensen Ackles who also starred in My Bloody Valentine, his character is the outgoing brother almost cocky I would say hes very cheeky buy charming he does anything his dad tells him to without even questioning it.
      The special effects were pretty good and got better as the season went on as you can imagine they had some very spooky scenes from spooky ghosts to violent murder scenes the props department must have had fun on this one. Supernatural ran for seven seasons and after watching the first I can't wait to see the rest. I would recommend this to any horror fans all though it's not continuous I wouldn't recommend this for children as some scenes can be very scary.

        Having become a first time mam recently I decided to take a different route with my reviews and start reviewing baby products and boy do I have a lot to choose from, so to begin with I've decided to start with the ones that I've found most useful. While pregnant after hearing loads of advice on it I had decided I'd definitely wanted to breast feed only i didn't realise it was going to be so hard.

        I really struggled to feed my son upon leaving the hospital so after getting very stressed my husband began searching for ways to make it easier on me. then he came across these avent pre-sterilised cups, so that I could express some milk and my husband could store the milk in the fridge for him to give my son when i was struggling. You get 5 cups per box which i think is sufficient. You can put 8oz of milk in each cup then either store it in the fridge or freezer, I found these cups a life saver they really helped me out.

        The cups come in a small box With pictures and instructions on how to store them and other avent products that can be used with them. One thing i would add is for some reason you have to buy the lids separately, however you can pick them fairly cheap prices do vary buy I got my cups for £2.50 which I think is a bargain. I'd definitely recommend these to any mam's who are breast feeding.

        I first got interested in this book when I stumbled across the american show the girls next door which is a show that features the lives of Hugh Hefners Three girlfriends one of them being Kendra Wilkinson. Kendra was my favourite from the start as she seemed so down to earth and real compared to the others the show then led me to watch her spin off show Kendra which is where you seen her preparing to write her own book.

        The book is very detailed I thought it starts off with her childhood which tells you a lot about her life growing up and how she become to be one of Hugh Hefners girlfriend. she writes about her life at the mansion and is very open about some parts I was quite shocked while reading. While reading the book its almost as if Kendra is talking to you, you can really hear her voice telling you the story.The book also details her life with her husband Hank Baskett how they met got married and had a child together, kendra got her happy ending that she deserved.
        from the moment I started reading this book and I couldn't put it down She's had such an interesting life its a great read.I got this book of amazon for £7 but I'm sure you'll be able to find it else where cheaper.I'd definitely recommend this book its a great read.

        I only heard about blackstone cherry a couple of years back when they were the support acts for another concert I went to. They are an American rock band, their sound falls under the category of southern rock and hard rock. The band consists of Chris Robertson (lead vocals, guitar) who I must say has an amazing and unique voice, Ben Wells (guitar, backing vocals) who definitely has a stage presence about himself, John Fred Young (drums, backing vocals) and Jonathan lawhon (bass guitar and backing vocals).These guys make up one of best rock bands I've heard of in a while.

        Folklore and Superstition was the first album I'd listened to by them however it was their second album they released, and I was hugely impressed. This album has great potential and some great songs on it all wrote by the band members themselves. My favourite songs being peace is free which is as you can guess a song about war, I've heard versions of this song done acoustically and their amazing It's a very touching moving song. The other favourite of this album is things my father said which Chris wrote about the death of his father. It's such a sweet song and you can really hear the emotion in his voice when he's singing, this song always brings a tear to my eye it also has a moving video to it too including the band member's fathers. I've seen blackstone cherry live four times now and this is the song that always gets the crowd going and singing along.

        I'd recommend any fans of rock music to go out and buy this album you won't be disappointed blackstone cherry are very raw talent and I can't wait to see what the future holds for them. The album consists of 13 songs all as good as the next, prices on the album vary from £3.50-9 definitely worth the money though I'd say.

        I've been a fan of Cathy Glass for a while now,she has a great writing style you really feel like you get to know her and the people in her stories. Cathy Glass is a foster carer and she writes stories of experiences she's had and the children she's cared for. Most of the children she's looked after are from very troubled backgrounds and a wide range of problems, however this story was different as it was about a love between father and son and the bond they shared.

        The story involves a little boy who's to be cared for by Cathy as his father is really poorly with cancer and is supposed to be terminal. he doesn't want his son seeing him get too ill so puts him into care with the intentions of Cathy looking after him when he's gone too.

        From the moment i picked up this book I could have cried as I really felt for this family and what they went through.This book is definitely worth a read i picked it up at my local charity shop for £1 however you can pick it up for between £2-6 which i still think is a good offer. I'd recommend this book to to any cathy glass fans its a really good story and a really good read.

        I've been a fan of these delicious puddings since I was little. at the moment I'm totally addicted to them my favourite flavour being vanilla custard. They come in pots with a serving size of 190g you can eat them cold or if your like me and like them hot you can pop them in the microwave for a minute. I think these are perfect treats or you can use them in a packed lunch. Their basically just rice pudding in a pot with quite a few flavours to chose from. their very sweet in taste and very morish I could live off them lol.

        The packaging is quite basic their served in plastic pots with a blue label with the red muller logo and all the nutritional information. they do stand out on the shelf. looking at the nutritional values i would say their not that fattening which is good, they only contain 111 calories per serving and 91mg of calcium which is quite good I think. If you have not already tried these id definitely recommend you do you wont be dissapointed.

        well a little bored to do but feel like I've got a lot to say so I've decided to write some discussion reviews and this discussion stood out straight away.

        I am a huge fan of all types of horror films so when ever a new one is released I always make an effort to see it. the film I want to talk about is reeker I seen it a few years a go when I came across it on DVD. at first glance it did seem like my kind of film with it being a teen horror film but i soon realised it wasn't my cup of tea at all.

        the only name in it I recognised is Arielle Kebbel, who was also in American pie:band camp and John tucker must die. Apart from her i didn't recognise anyone else in the film. I thought the acting in the film was quite poor to be honest and didn't feel like I could really connect with the characters.I also thought the plot line was very poor where they end up in the middle of no where at a deserted gas station and surprise surprise they all get killed off one by one. There's also a twist to this story at the very end which i thought was very poor ill not say what it is though to ruin the plot. over all I really didn't enjoy this film which is weird for me as there's not a lot of films I don't like. Ill definitely not be watching this film again and with that my rant is over and ill go get on with the rest of my day lol.

        thanks for reading

          I joined this site a few years ago when i came across it on another site i use. pointshop is a site where you can earn points for doing offers like: click campaigns,shopping, blogging and reading emails.. the sites design is green and has an easy lay out so its easy to navigate around. my favourite section of the site is where you earn points from blogging as you can blog about anything you like and earn from it. When i first joined the site I earned a lot of points quickly and spent them quickly too. however now I find there's a few draw backs to the site. I find it quite slow to earn points off and because of some of the sites partners when browsing through the shop a lot of it is written in German or French, a lot of the rewards now consist of adult themed items.

          Im still an active member of the site as there's a few rewards that are high in points to purchase so i still visit the site regulary just not as much as I used to. I'd recommend this site if you have some spare time and are willing to put the effort in to earn the higher rewards.

          Well 22 weeks pregnant and I think I'm experiencing my first craving of the pregnancy. my craving just happens to be walkers sensations Peking spare rib flavour. These oriental crackers are delicious and addictive, i think if my craving continues ill have to be watching my figure lol.

          they are served like oriental crackers and are really crunchy to eat, after every bite i find my mouth watering lol. these crackers are quite sweet in taste but leave a slight tingle in your mouth afterwards, I find after I've demolished a FULL bag! of these that my mouth is very hot and needs water my tongue is left tingling. I think these are the perfect snack for a mid night feast or you could serve them as nibbles if you had a few friends over for a few drinks.

          Now here's for the important information lets start with the nutritional information, per a 110g bag there is 480 calories, 1.2g of protein and 22g of fat. now that seems a lot of fat for something so small but I guess if your just going to have them as an occasional snack then its totally worth it. Now the price of these normally varies from £1.30-1.80 which I think is reasonable however i stocked up on these when my local morrisons had them on offer for 87p!!!!! a bargain. I'd recommend these to any snacker who prefers the oriental side of life.

          thank you for my review

          Knowing was released in 2009 I was drawn to this film as Nicholas Cage in and I'm a huge fan. The film starts with seeing how a Nicholas has struggled to deal with the loss of his wife and him being left to raise his son who won't open up to him. As the film continues you see theirs more than meets the eye with his son as he receives a picture from a time capsule dug up from his elementary school. The picture is very strange and just contains numbers which you soon realise have a very important meaning. Not long after receiving the picture Kaleb starts hearing voices and that's when the story really unfolds nothing is as it seems.

          The film is classed as drama, mystery and sci-fi, there's definitely lots of mystery in this film with quite a surprising end I thought. It's classified as a 15 which I agree with as there can be some disturbing scenes in the film I thought. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and one thing I found amazing was the special effects which theirs a lot of in this film. I borrowed this film from a friend but prices vary from £2.99-8.00 depending on where you shop. I'd definitely recommend this film to a friend and recommend everyone sees it. I love films like this where it's a mystery all the way until the end I was left guessing.

          I'm into all things spiritual and TJ Higgs is definitely one of my favourite mediums so I couldn't wait to read her book when I came across it. The book details her life living with her gift,it starts as her as a little girl and always knowing she was different but not quite understanding why. The book leads into her adult life where she starts working with her gift. TJ Higgs wrote the book her self and I think its very well written, she has lead such an interesting life and hasn't had the easiest starts to her life, its been surrounded by heart ache in my opinion.

          I absolutely love this book i found it a really interesting read,hearing how people around her struggled with her gift as well as she did. the book is very well written and her life documented starting with child hood finishing with her as an adult. The book was published in 2009 and consists of 256 pages. I was lucky enough to find this book in a charity shop so got the book for a bargain at 50p, however prices can vary from £2.50 to over £5 depending where you go for it. This book was a very good read so I definitely think its worth the money. ill be looking out for more of her books in the future.

          Id definitely recommend this to anyone like me who has an interest into anything spiritual its a must read.

          i recently started using fairy liquid so thought id write a review on it. I was first drawn to fairy pomegranate and honeysuckle because of the colour it really stood out. it is in a clear plastic squeezy bottle and is a very vibrant red colour. the first thing i did when i get it home was smell it a little fetish of mine lol, i noticed it was really sweet smelling.my kitten loves the smell too random i know but true!!! lol.

          i struggle to find a decent washing up liquid as most tend to leave my hands quite dry after using it, how ever not this one so i was pleasantly pleased. the packaging is quite basic,its a clear bottle with an orange and red label with the usual information on how to store and use it. the price tends to vary from £1.20-1.50 depending on where you shop which i think is very reasonable priced. i'm definately going to be using this from now on.id recommend everyone at least tries it out.

            I recently came across this water when I was in my local shop. there's plenty of flavours to choose from all relating to different vitamins. the one i opted for was the orange flavoured one which is called essential and has vitamin c an calcium in it.

            the packaging is quite basic the wrapper is white and orange so it does stand out. on the label it includes all the vital information you'd definitely expect. it also tells you what vitamins are in the drink in mine it states:
            200% vitamin c,
            25% vitamin b3,b6,b12,b5
            15% calcium
            and its all natural flavours and low in calories.

            Now for the taste, the flavour was orange and i must say it was rather tasty it was very subtle of course as it was flavoured water. it wasn't too sickly or too sweet i think it was just right. Id definitely recommend this too people who prefer flavoured water and who also need a little vitamin pick me up. Ive seen the price range of this drink go from £1.30-1.40 so its fairly reasonable priced.

            glad i got my clearblue :)

            I bought the clearblue pregnancy test at the beginning of the month,having done two own brand tests that came back positive i wanted to be sure. I picked clearblue as i had been told these were the ones doctors used, the test cost me £8 which i didnt mind paying.

            The instructions were really easy to use and even came with some pictures so you knew what the result would look like. It states on the instructions that most readings will take 90 seconds to get a result however when i did my test it came back within seconds pregnant showed up on the screen it even said 3+ which meant id conceived 3-5 weeks ago, which i thought was quite clever for a test. there are quite a few other clearblue products on the shelf but im glad i picked this one as it was really accurate. i would definately reccomend this to anyone who thinks they may be pregnant as its quick and easy to use.

              The others is set at the end of world war two and follows a woman and her children who live in a mansion in jersey. She eagerly awaiting her husband coming home from the war and shes very protective of her two young children Anne and Nicholas, who suffer from a disease where their skin cant be touched by direct sun light so they live in darkness. One afternoon some strangers arrive at their door looking for work claiming they used to work in the house years before. soon after the arrival the family start hearing and seeing things and thats when things get weird.

              Nicole Kidman plays grace her character comes across as very obediant with rules and very strict with her children. Anne is the older child and she likes to scare her younger brother Nicholas who's easily spooked she tends to pick on him a lot through out the film.The thing i love most about this film is the quite dramatic end and i like how your left guessing through most of the film. there isnt really that many special effects in this film to comment on how ever i found the back round music great it really added to the moment and the scenes.

              The Others was released in 2001 and directed by Alejandro Amenábar. Its certificate is rated a PG 13 for thematic elements and frightening moments. Id reccomend this to any horror fan i didn't really find this film that scary more jumpy and mysterious in parts.
