      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      ... Not my pot of gold!

      *Product Price & Availability*
      The Lush Dorothy Bubble Bar is a brand new product, limited edition, becoming available from 1st March 2010. I ordered mine from Lush online and it arrived yesterday.

      The 100g bubble bar is currently priced at £2.80 and is now available in store at Lush, by mail order Tel: 01202 668545 on-line at www.lush.com..

      *Appearance and Smell*
      This royal blue bubble bar is sweetly decorated with a mini rainbow in red, orange and yellow.

      Lush claim that it smells of Ylang Ylang and Fig. To me it smells very slightly of orange and cheap soap. It is not the most pleasant on fragrances and is quite unusual.

      *Ingredients*
      Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Orange Flower Absolute (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), *Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool, Colour 42090, Colour 14700, Colour 15510}

      *My Experience of Using the Bubble Bar*
      I generally use half a bubble bar at a time, but last night decided to throw the whole bar in as an extra special treat. Crumbling the bar under hot running water the water instantly turns a bright electric/royal blue colour and a huge pile of bubbles start to appear.

      Stepping into the bath feels like stepping into a bath of silk, the water is so smooth.

      Soaking in this feels totally luxurious; very moisturising and cleansing. After bathing and drying I did use a little body lotion as my skin felt slightly tight, like it was drying out and needed extra moisture. This morning my skin felt in great condition.

      In all honesty the only down side of this product is the smell. It really is peculiar and has put me off using it again.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        As a treat once in a while then maybe, but it is so high in calories

        *Product Price & Availability*
        Iceland Pilau Rice is only available from Iceland stores or home delivery. The price will vary from either £1.00 or £1.25 for a 350g serving.

        *About The Product*
        This rice comes frozen and is recommended for microwave cooking for 6 minutes. It can also be oven cooked for 30 minutes.

        This product is suitable for vegetarians but hade been made in a 'production area' that uses nuts and sesame seeds - so a warning for allergy sufferers.

        A 350g tray of this rice is 618 calories. One tray is suitable for one hungry person (with a curry dish also), but I guess there was a bit much, so if you prefer more curry than rice then you'd still get two fair sized portions from this box (just not me:0>).

        *Nutritional Values*
        618 calories
        10.5g protein
        94.7g carbs
        21.9g fat
        1.8g fibre
        1.2g

        *My Opinion*
        When I purchased this rice I was feeling, firstly very lazy, and secondly very skint. We really fancied a curry but just couldn't justify the £12 or more. A friend had recommended Iceland curry so decided to give it a whirl. I bought two portions of rice and two different curry dishes from the frozen selection, totally £5.00! Then added a 38p naan bread (from a different store), so all in all, less than half the price of the takeaway up the road.

        The rice was easy to cook; simply removing the black plastic tray, containing the rice, from its cardboard outer sleeve, and piercing the film lid before zapping in the microwave.

        The basmati rice is flavoured with cumin seeds, which are scattered throughout the tumeric stained (yellow) rice.

        I found the rice to be non-greasy and full of flavour. It is authentic and each grain is seperated (rather than lumped together and sticky like my mums rice).

        With the ease of preparation this made the dish ideal and one that I would recommend - only if you were not bothered about your waistline or do not need to watch your weight. The nutritional values in this are very high (on all counts) and so for that reason I will reduce my original 4 stars to 3 and I would carefully consider before buying this again.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          ...Just make sure you rinse it out really well!!

          ~ Product Price & Availability ~
          'Big' is only available from Lush, in store, online at www.lush.co.uk or by mail order 01202 668545.

          A 330g pot is currently priced at £11.25. Wow, that is some price tag, but is it worth it? **price updated 4/11/2012**

          ~About Big~
          Big is a sea salt shampoo recommended to increase shine and softness. It is 50% natural sea salt and also contains fresh sea water, seaweed infusion, citrus and coconut oils.

          This product has quite an unusual, yet not unpleasant smell. It is hard to pinpoint the exact smell, as, to me, it is a blend of the above mentioned ingredients, with salt and lemon being the obvious standout fragrances.

          ~Ingredients~
          Coarse Sea Salt, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Fresh Organic Lemon Infusion (Citrus limonum), Fresh Sea Water, Toothed Wrack Seaweed Infusion (Fucus serratus), Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, Fresh Organic Lime Juice (Citrus aurantifolia), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara), Mandarin Oil (Citrus nobilis), Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Orange Flower Absolute (Citrus Aurantium amara), *Limonene, Perfume}

          *Occurs naturally in essential oils

          ~My Thoughts on Big~
          I first used this product when I got a 45g 'sample' tub with my Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes box back in January. Before I had even finished my trial pot I went back into Lush and purchased another pot, the 330g size. I absolutely love this product and will definitely be buying it again.

          The shampoo itself reminds me of the look of apple sauce, yet a paler, almost white, colour; until I dipped my finger into the pot that was. The course sea salt, is very course indeed, big chunks that look like that are going to really hurt my head.

          Using the product is really easy and does not hurt at all. The chunky salt actually massages and exfoliates the scalp really well. There is loads of lather only a little needs to be used with each wash. I have used this shampoo around 20 times and have enough for another 6 - 8 washes. It is not necessary to use this daily, but I love this so much...

          I have a thick mop of curls and I find that this shampoo gives it even more bounce than usual and I do not require to use a conditioner with this each time, which is a bonus!

          Overall, I am very impressed with this. I will definitely be making another purchase when this pot has run out. It is costly, but worth every penny to me.

          ...Just make sure you rinse it out really well!!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A winner from Birds Eye

            *Product Price & Availability*
            Birds Eye products are widely available in supermarkets, frozen food stores and I often see them in my local 'corner' shop.

            They can vary in price depending on where they are purchased but are often on offer. In Asda the regular price is around £1.68. Currently in Asda they are priced at £1.00 or 4 for £3.00.

            *Nutritional Bits*
            Each chicken piece, which is counted as one serving, contains 165 calories, 16g of protein, 4.3g of carbs, 9.3g of fat and 0.7g of salt equivalent.

            *My Verdict*
            I often use Birds Eye Chicken Chargrills in the various flavours, in various dishes. I do this mostly for the ease and convenience, but am also impressed by the current price at Asda and of course the taste (of some of them).

            After cooking for 20 minutes I sliced my pieces of chicken up and threw them into a wok to make a stir fry with.

            I found the lime and chilli flavours to both be very prominent, yet neither overwhelming, and both very enjoyable. These certainly hold a lot of flavour and so make any dish interesting.

            The chicken is quality made from chicken breast, yet not a whole chicken breast. As I have used these many times before I expect that the chicken pieces are more like chunks that have been reformed... but it's just a warning to others not to expect a whole chicken breast.

            Overall these are fabulous. Full of flavour, fairly healthy and really versatile. They are now amongst my favourite flavours of Birds Eye chargrills.

              Disadvantages

              toast and spread with butter and jam.... yummy

              *Price & Availability*
              Since Shrove Tuesday last week I have redeveloped my loves of pancakes, which is something that happens each and every year. These are not the typical pancakes I would normally eat around this time but I have been enjoying trying 'scotch' pancakes.

              Asda Good For You Pancakes are available in a pack of 6 for 46p and are currently on a multibuy offer at 2 packs for 70p and can be combined with other similar bakery products, such as crumpets.

              They are only available at Asda stores or www.asda.com.

              *Nutritional Bits*
              2 panccakes provide 146 calories, 4.1g protein, 28.6g carbs and 1.6g fat

              *Serving Suggestions*
              The wrapper suggests serving these pancakes with fresh fruit and natural yoghurt. I tried this idea but was not overly keen I have to say, they just went a bit soggy.

              I toast mine (although the heating guidelines on the packet suggest grilling them), as toasting is the easiest thing to do. I also smoother mine in butter and serve them with sultanas and some maple syrup and they are delicious this way.

              *My Verdict*
              These are a thoroughly enjoyable pancake. They are versatile and can be served an eaten in many different ways. They have slightly better nutritional values to other pancakes I have tried, although they are also slightly smaller.

              They are around 6-8mm thick and round flat discs. They are quite sweet and taste, to me, like a sponge cake. They would be delicious covered with jam also.

              My little boy has tried these too and seems to really enjoy them and takes them off my plate. The cheek!!

              I would buy again while they are on a good price offer, but I will probably not remain loyal after that.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Not for me

                *Product Price & Availability*
                This product is available only at Asda stores and online on www.asda.com.

                They are currently priced at £1.88 for a 400g quiche or on 2 for £3.00, making them £1.50 each.

                *Nutritional Bits*
                The pack suggests half a quiche per serving, which provides the following values:
                Calories - 530
                Protein - 13.5g
                Carbs - 38.7g
                Fat - 35.7g
                Salt equivalent - 1.2g

                These values are massive in relation to the GDA (Guideline Daily Amounts). Given that the GDA of fat for women is 70g, half of this quiche provides a little more than half of this amounts.

                *My Verdict*
                I do love quiche and am well aware that it is quite naughty.

                These is not one of my favourites by Asda but having not had it for a long while I made the purchase.

                I found that the egg mixture itself is quite bland and flavourless. The pieces of bacon are thin and small and clearly reformed or processed. The quiche itself is a little stodgy and does not have the firm yet wobbly consistency I enjoy.

                That said the pastry is really good, not overly buttery but nicely moist and tasty.

                Quiche should definitely be eaten in moderation (particularly if you are watching your figure or trying to loose weight).

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I probably wouldn't buy this particular flavour again - too hyped up!!

                *Price & Availability*
                I recently purchased my pack of Birds Eye Chicken Chargrills Reggae Reggae flavour from Asda . They are normally priced at around £1.68 for a pack of two. They are currently priced at £1.00 per pack and also available on a 4 for £3.00 offer, which is fantastic value.

                These are widely available in many supermarkets and frozen food stores in the frozen aisle.

                *About The Product*
                Two pieces of chicken are individually frozen and packaged in a cardboard box. This particular flavour is identifiable by an orange and yellow coloured background, with the usual Birds Eye logo.

                The chicken pieces are made from farm assured chicken breast and marinated in Levi Roots Reggae Reggae glaze.

                *Nutritional Bits*
                Each portion of chicken (one piece) provides 170 calories, 16.0g protein, 4.8g carbs, 9.4g fat, salt equivalent 0.6g.

                Contains wheat and soya, therefore not suitable for allergy sufferers. Obviously, the chicken content makes these not suitable for vegetarians.

                *My Verdict*
                After cooking these in the oven for 20 minutes, as recommended, I slice the chicken pieces and toss into a pasta salad (nicking a bit here and there).

                I was a little disappointed with the flavour of the Reggae Reggae glaze. I have tried and tasted it before from the jar and found it had a great flavour - but this chicken was sadly lacking, it was not as spicy as I had remembered.

                The chicken pieces, although are made from chicken breast are not while breast, so do not be fooled and do not expect this. It is actually quite processed, albeit quality meat.

                I was not overly impressed with the flavour of these particular chargrills, although I do enjoy the convenience and versatility.

                As I said before, I had mine with pasta salad. I have also used Birds Eye Chicken Chargrills in a stirfry, wraps or sandwiches and served whole with veggies or chips or potato wedges.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                It will make you feel sick

                *The Plot*
                In the setting of Shenaniganz Restaurant we meet all of the staff, old and new and see how they entertain themselves at work. Sometimes this is harmless fun, sometimes it is drug use at work, and sometimes it is messing with customer's food, in the grossest ways they can think of.

                Ryan Reynolds plays Monty who is showing the 'new guy', Mitch, played by John Frances Daley, the ropes. The entire film is based on one typical night at the restaurant and the party afterwards.

                *My Thoughts*
                I have seen this film twice and each time I have laughed and cringed. They really do get up to some disgusting things in this restaurant, which reminded me of why I never send food back in an eating establishment. (If I was really disgusted with something in the first place then I wouldn't eat the meal, may be request my money back and simply not eat there again.... I would never complain.

                There is a lot of swearing in this film (although this didn't bother me personally; it may others).

                I was quite funny and the humour in general probably quite typical in many work places, although certainly taken to the extreme.

                *The Extras*
                There are typical behind the scenes here, with out-takes and the fun had during filming - extra naughty bits done to get a true reaction.

                *The Verdict*
                If you enjoy watching mindless potty humour then this may appeal!

                *Most Memorable Quote*
                F*cking psychobabble-bullsh*t as*h*le! Which is just typical of the language!!

                Just Pure Yummy Biscuit Goodness

                *Price & Availability*
                Fox's Melts Viennese Chocolate biscuits are widely available in supermarkets, smaller local supermarkets, frozen food stores and practically anywhere that sells decent biccies!

                A 150g packet is currently priced at £1.32 at Asda, £1.00 at Sainsbury's, £1.27 at Tesco. I bought two packets of Fox's biscuits in Iceland for £1.50 this week (and they are all gone - whoops!)

                *What They Are*
                Two buttery short bread biscuits are sandwiched together with real milk chocolate. They are quite simple finger biscuits, although the short bread biscuits are ridged all over.

                *Nutritional Bits*
                There are 10 biscuits in this pack and each biscuit provides 79 calories, 4.5g sugars, 4.6g fat, 2.6g saturates and 0.1g salt.

                *My Verdict*
                A Winner. These biscuits are divine. They are so simple, just with the biscuit and the chocolate centre, no creamy filling, just melted chocolate.

                They are pretty expensive though for just 10 biscuits, although I obviously got the better deal with my packet working out at just 75p.

                These are really quite different to Viennese Whirls (which I also love) and I was very pleasantly surprised at this offering from Fox's

                These are lovely with a cuppa and my son also has taken a shine to these (wish I had kept him away from them now).

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Recommended for biccie lovers!

                  *Price & Availability*
                  I bought my Fox's Creams Jam Rings from Iceland on a two for £1.50 offer, so 75p a packet. They are currnetly prices at ASda for 50p, Tesco for 81p, Sainsburys for 79p and of course are widely available in supermarkets, frozen food shops and local stores, as Fox's is a popular brand.

                  *Nutritional Bits*
                  Each biscuit contains 80 calories, 4.9g of sugar, 3.8g fat, 2.1g saturates and 0.08g of salt.

                  *The Product and My Thoughts*

                  Each 150g packet contains 12 shortcake sandwich biscuits with cream and raspberry jam filling. The middle has a circular whole cut out where the jam is seen, covered in sugar.

                  The shortcake biscuit is well 'done / baked' and is crumbly to the bite; nice and buttery yet not too sweet. The sweetness lies in the raspberry jam and cream filling, which are both delicious.

                  These are lovely with tea if you are a 'dunker' as the sticky jam and cream filling keeps the shortcake well sandwiched and stuck together so it does not go soggy too quickly.

                  My verdict is a thumbs up. Yes, they are high in calories, but still around the same as a custard cream, but with the added extra of the jam. And to be honest, I'm kind of past caring about calories and fat at the moment; not in the right frame of mind presently.

                  I would definietly buy these again and with Asda having the best deal on at the moment at 50p, that is the place to go for 'em!

                  Recommended for biccie lovers, oh and the little ones love these too, tried and tested!

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    A nice, but pricey (ish) treat

                    I am a lover of all things sweet and these yoghurts do just the trick when I need my sweet tooth satisfied.

                    *Price & Availability*
                    Available in most supermarkets, local shops, (costcutters, spar - that sort of place) from around 53p upto the most I have seen them for 75p.

                    I often buy these when they are on multibuy offers and recently bought 3 for £1.00 at Iceland.

                    *The Product*
                    A split pot dessert with creamy vanilla yoghurt in the larger section and small ball of puffed rice covered in white and milk chocolate in the smaller compartment.

                    Peeling off the foil lid allows you to snap the smaller section off or to bend it over into the yoghurt.

                    *Nutritional Bits*
                    Each 150g pot contains approx. 225 calories, 7g of fat and 27g of sugar.
                    There are no artifical colours, preservatives or sweeteners and this product is suitable for vegetarians.

                    *What Do I Think?*
                    Well, I love these dessert yoghurts. The yoghuirt is smooth and creamy and full of vanilla flavour. The choco balls are crunchy with a nicely melting chocolate coating.

                    I do think that these are way too high in calories to be a regular daily dessert, but are generally better than a slab of chocolate cake.

                    I also think that these are way too expensive at regular full price, imagine a family of four or more each having one of these daily......

                    But, as they are delicious I will continue to buy them as a nice treat when they are on offers.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      it is a lovely gift to receive or to give, but too expensive for me to use as an everyday item

                      *Price & Availability*
                      I had my Sanctuary products for Christmas so fortunately did not have to but this myself. Sanctuary products are available from Boots stores on online at www.boots.com. The Mela range is fairly new and the Amla & Cardamom Shower Drench currently costs £5.49 for a 250ml bottle. Sanctuary products are sometimes on 3 for 2 offers.

                      *Using The Product*
                      The shower 'drench' is easily dispensed from the flip top cap and I squeeze a 20p sized blob onto a shower scrunchie. This lathers really well and quickly, producing a thick dense foam.

                      The fragrance is something very special and unusual. I would not have been able to pick out the cardamom if I had not known what the product contains, but this really adds an aromatic feel, along with spicy fruity alma fruit.

                      There is plenty of Vitamin C stacked into this product.
                      *What I Think*
                      I really enjoy using this product in conjunction with other products from the Mela range. I love the 'Hindi' feel of the product packaging and smell is amazing. The foam is cleansing and I do feel moisturised after use. The smell stays on my skin for many hours after use and I am always sniffing myself when I have showered with this.

                      I find it invigorating and revitalising.

                      However, that is some price tag and it is not something I would buy for my self regularly, if would have to be as a treat with my advantage card points or as a gift for me to not feel guilty!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Liuid eyeliner takes a last of getting used to but this is one of the best I have used

                        *Price & Availability*
                        Straight & Narrow Liquid Eyeliner is available to buy for £7.00 on line at www.vieathome.com, at a Vie outlet, from a Vie Consultant at a Vie party night and they can often be found on ebay too (probably at a reduced price).

                        *About the Product and it's Claims*
                        There is one standard size which is not specified on the product, the packaging or the website, but is around 3-5ml of product. There is only one shade available - black.

                        Vie claim that this product has a smudge free formula and that the 'wand' is easy to hold and therefore making application easier. The fibre tip ensures that you do not drag the skin as it glide on like felt tip.

                        The product has a 6 month shelf life.

                        *Using the Product*
                        Well, using liquid eyeliner is notoriously difficult - until you have the hang of it. This one is no different.

                        I do find that it glides on quite easily and that with the well defined point to the tip it is easy to get flicks. It does dry really quickly and have not found it to smudge.

                        *What I Think*
                        I quite like this eyeliner. The fact that it does not smudge does make it really difficult to remove with regular eye make up remover and I always have to use 'Everything Goes' which is an eye makeup remover by Vie, as this gets it off really quickly.

                        The fibre tip is gentle and it has never felt harsh on the delicate skin around my eyes. The product does last for ages, but it is time I threw mine away. I have had it way longer than is hygienic really. I always replace my mascara every 3 months. I have had this product for probably about 3 years (oh dear - that's just dirty). This does prove the point though that this product lasts for ages, goes a long way and remains moist for a (very) long time.

                        I would buy it again, but think I might try a cheaper version for the time being... that said I am going to a Vie party tomorrow night!!!

                        Might be worth a try and worth the reward if you become a regularly active user

                        I have been a member of www.beautyjudge.com for sometime now after spotting a dooyoo member writing about it in one of their reviews.

                        The concept is easy... beauty product reviews. Members can read, write and rate reviews on their favourite, or least favourite beauty products.

                        My main reason for joining was to check out beauty products, but you can of course read review without becoming a member. Becoming a member and writing regular reviews does increase your chances of receiving free beauty products in the 'Free Product Jury' .

                        I receive a daily email from beauty judge giving me details of that days free product. These have been, for example, Lytess Active Shapers (worth £39.99) and JML Bumpits (worth £9.99) and loads of great skincare products.

                        Beauty Judge have recently changed their rules on qualifying for the free products. It used to be that members had to write a review that particular day to qualify for the product, however these free products are now only available to regularly active members who regularly participate in the site.

                        I find the site lay-out easy to navigate and it is easy to search for products the written reviews are now where near as good quality as dooyoo reviews and regularly a paragraph will suffice.

                        If you fancy writing some quick reviews on a regular basis, with the chance of receiving some free products (which you also have to review) then this site may be worth a try for you.

                        Disadvantages

                        It could be Martina Cole you are reading....

                        *The Plot*
                        Jenna Lorde is unwillingly thrust into nightclub ownership after her father, the boss of Zenith, dies. Jenna has to relocated from London back to her hometown of Manchester as the club is in Deansgate. Once Jenna has decided to stay on and keep the club she spends a few months and a lot of money bringing the dingy club to life and throws a New Year's Eve party to celebrate the opening. Some well known (and other less well known) celebrities attend and the club becomes part of their lifestyle too.

                        There is an obvious attraction between Jenna and resident DJ 'Vibes' and she is left bereft when he has to return home to America.

                        Jenna and her manager Fabian find the club going drastically down hill when all sorts of scary and out of character events happen that bring the clientele down.

                        *My Thoughts on the Novel and The Author*
                        This is the first Mandasue Heller book I have read, although I have 3 more to get through now... and I can't wait.

                        Heller has been likened to Martina Cole, who is one of my favourite fictional crime authors, and so I entered the book with this in mind. She certainly lived up to that expectation with realistic storylines - there is certainly the need for 'protection' in the Manchester club scene.

                        I felt that the book was written very well with a lot of depth to the key characters. There were loads of little sub plots that all link in to the end of the story, yet in an uncomplicated way. It was easy to read and unputdownable. As the reader I was aware of the characters with a darker side and I knew who I should and should not like.

                        A great read that I would recommend.
