      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Yes, Cheap and cheerful - the only two words I can find suitable to describe New Look. I personally find New Looks clothes of very bad quality , and have found they get discoloured quickly, the threads start appearing within hours of me putting on a piece of New Look's collection and they just generally look cheap after the first wash. Don't get me wrong New Look is fine if you are wanting to purchase something to wear on one night - but honestly don’t expect to wear it the second time. New Look does stock all the latest trends and does provide them to the consumer at very reasonable prices - but really you don't expect to pay high prices for rubbish quality clothes - do you. Last summer I purchased a number of vest tops out of it - after the first wash they all looked as if they were at least 10 years old and they had lost their shape, not to mention they had all got smaller in the wash - but at least they were useful rags around the house - but a complete waste of money. New Look also sell shoes - but don ask me what quality they are - I never had the guts to purchase a pair. But I am sure they aren’t up to much. In my overall opinion New Look is best for bits and pieces like earrings, necklaces etc that you what to buy cheap and wear only once.

        Yes, Chucky's back - in another sensational story. Thanks to Tiffany ( played by the sweet voiced Jennifer Tilly) - (she was Chucky's girlfriend before he was killed) - The Doll we all dread is BACK - for a while anyway. THE STORY Tiffany is desperate to resurrect her one and only true Love Chucky - who now in the form of a life like doll - is in various pieces - some of which are in police hands - sweet talks a police officer into getting her the missing parts back so she can sew her dearly beloved back together. On receipt of the part Tiffany brutally kills the officer. On her return to her trailer home she careful sews the dolls back together again and calls on his soul to re-enter the dolls body. But on his resurrection Chucky is filled with jealous of Tiffany's new partner and brutally murders him - Tiffany is convinced that Chucky really does love her but soon finds out to the differ, and with rage locks the doll what she believes to be safety in a cage. But being the notorious Chucky the doll escapes and electrocutes Tiffany in the bath and then takes her soul and transports it in to a doll (which Tiffany soon glams up to look like her as she did in human form ) The dolls then set about getting to the cemetery when Chucky's body is buried - with the help of Jesse ( a fellow trailer owner of Tiffany's ) & his girlfriend Jade. Jesse and Jade are experiencing difficulties in the respect that Jade's crazy father disapproves of the relationship so they take the opportunity to go on the run. But once on the run the pair are followed by brutal deaths and a trail of destruction - unknowing that the dolls are behind this all but they soon find out and also discover the dolls are plotting to kill them and take over their human bodies. The climax comes in the cemetery when Jesse and jade JUST about escape and nothing more. Both Chucky and Tiffany come to a sad end - but who ever
        guessed dolls could have babies - so junior will no doubt provide us with some new movie material in due time. This is a super film, the dolls are really quite cute and in some parts very funny - making this a very entertaining scary movie. This is one film that can be enjoyed many times I’ve seen it 3 times so far and will no doubt watch again. It's funny but sickly gruesome at the time WATCH it you will enjoy.

          I hate to start this review on this web site like this - but since Tuesday 26th February 2002 Island - Trading ceased to exist. ( and I can give you no explaination for this SORRY) Island - Trading was a complete gem of a web store for all us girls who are beauty and make up freaks. Island - Trading offered products at discounted prices - these products included many big brand names like RELVON, CHRISTAIN DOIR, CALVIN KEIN but to mention a few. The store carried stock of all kinds from lipsticks, eyeshadow, nail varnish, cleansers, foundations - the list goes on and on. I ordered from Island - Trading on several occasions - and was always happy with I got espcially when i looked at the invoice and price. OK the quality of some of the products was not great but hey what do you expect when you only pay £1 !!!. The web site was very easy to guide yourself through. The front page showing you the special offers of the time. The company often had SALES where you could make extra savings. In the last sale I got salon size tubs of cleansers,face masks all fo just £3 ( it was a buy 2 for £6 offer SUPER or what !!!) Overall this will be one web site I was really miss. ISLAND TRADING ALWAYS REMEMBERED IN MY BANK STATEMENT !!

            This is the worst excuse I have ever seen for a web site in my entire life. Being on the search for some SEXY lingerie I decided to take a browse at this rather interesting sounding web site. So off I went to be greeted with a page saying INDEX OF : (& a list of links )including BACKUP DOWNLOAD FUN STUFF IMAGES OK LOGOS PRODUCTS SECRET so off I went explore these links only to find this entire site has restricted access to all areas - not much good to us window shoppers. Truthfully I was deeply disappointed - maybe someone out there can explain and help me to get into this site - I'm even most interested in seeing what is in there seen I didn't get in.

                I have to admit I am a big lover of this great service - I send a lot of parcles and letters to friends all over the world - and have found this service first class. It is fast and fairly reasonable priced. We also ahve a first class postman here at home who drops into the house to see how we are all keeping and check if I need anything ( living in the country and a wheelchair user means I sometime can be in need of a small favour done for me - such as the dog let out or being fetched something I can not reach ) and he always has as smile on his face and a cheerful word to say to you. What more do you need - far nicer than a postman who just drops the post through your letter box and runs on. This service has to be one of the most important services provided in this country - I really hope it remains with us for many more years. And out local post office service counter person is also extremly helpful and provided my local community with a great service.

                  Why not treat your hair to the luxury formula of Te Tao shampoo – the Chinese Herbal Therapy. I discovered this srummy shampoo by pure accident one day when I was in my local Boots store. The product was on offer BUY GET ONE FREE – and after one sniff of this shampoo and I was hooked. The Te Tao range is created around the idea of Chinese Herbal medicine – over the centuries it has been discovered that there was remarkable healing powers in this type of medical work. Te Tao shampoo is created along with these healing powers and with the use of plants and minerals they create this wonderful shampoo. As well as the use of the elements – EARTH, WATER, FIRE AND AIR. Wonderful on two stands – One it is so kind to your hair & two it smells totally heavenly. My favourite is the GINSENG TEA TONIC SHAMPOO – which uses Chinese scullcap, fleece flower and gardenia to create the most distinct smell. It is recommended that this particular shampoo is to be used on dry or tired hair. The fragrance that is left in your hair is lovely and will still be smelt 2 days after you have washed your hair. My hair is easy to manage and looks really healthy after use of Te Tao shampoo. There are currently four different types of shampoo in the range – all smell and work really well – but a piece of advice stick to the type that suits your hair type best. Also watch out for this product on special in Boots – offers such as 2 for 3 etc. Although a bit dearer than most shampoos – this product is well worth its price – and it a considerable bit cheaper than most designer shampoos and believe you me it does the same job if not in my eyes a better one.

                  After watching countless showings of who wants to be a millionaire on ITV and then in recent months RTE - I decided to investigate buying a version for my own PC - which I found to my delight without any trouble what so ever. Although a wee bit worried about buying this game I read through some reviews that customers had posted on the site and after reading most of them being in favour for the game I purchased. Five days later it arrived - after sometime working out how to install it correctly and well after 101 different disturbances - i was impressed by what I found to appear on my PC’s screen. This game is wonderfully designed and put together - it is so realistic - the only down side is the fact you can get no real cash from it - but what do you expect. Chris's voice over is brill making the whole so realistic and it even gets it right depending on the question - i expected just a general voice over. The graphics are super and whole thing is so real like - this game is a certain to its makers and producers - they have made a double on the television show. GOOD JOB CHAPS - my family love it so much the CD never cools in my house

                    Hotmail.com is MSN’s e-mail service. It is the largest e-mail account system – nearly everyone I know has a hotmail account. Hotmail is a very simple e-mail system to use – there are no complicated procedures to go through to open your account. I opened my account via the MSN home page and had the account up and running in matter of 10 minutes or less. It couldn’t be simpler. The main reason I opened account was to aid me in my quest to organise a school reunion. I only had a handful of old school friends e-mail address. I reckoned that most would have a hotmail account. ( well a good 90% of them did) I used the search facility to track them down – it is also very easy to use. In the end I managed to track most of my old school friends down through the use of hotmail. I personally recommend the use of hotmail if you are trying to track down some one friends. Hotmail is used world wide, making it easy to locate people all over the world. The only downside to hotmail is that you have a limited size of a mail box therefore making it important to remove all rubbish e-mails every month or so ( if you don’t you may miss some important e-mails) There is also a IM service – where you may chat to you friends who also hold a hotmail account. Overall hotmail gets the thumbs up from me – it is a very useful service to be part of.

                      On a sleepy Sunday morning in December, as children played and families prayed, squadrons of Japanese warplanes screamed across the skies of an Hawaiian paradise and launched a surprise attack on the U.S. armed forces at Pearl Harbour. The infamous day that jolted America from peaceful isolationism to total war, and altered the course of world history, is relived in this epic tale of patriotism, passion and romance. Starring Ben Afflect and Kate Beckinsale, 'Pearl Harbour' is an epic sage of love and war which focuses on the life changing events surrounding December 7, 1941. It is a tale of catastrophic defeat, heroic victory, personal courage and overwhelming love, set against a stunning backdrop of spectacular wartime action. This is one amazing film in all aspects - the special affects are so mind blowing and are second to none. This cast is super at holding their own in what are really demanding roles. This will be in of those all time great films and in my opinion it will certainly be the film of 2001.

                        Ulster's favourite republican family have had a nasty shock - their ancestors were hard hearted landowners during the famine. For MA,DA and CAL - the nationalist half of the GIVE MY HEAD PEACE go back in time and find that their republician stock is not as strong as they thought in this new series of this much loved comedy show. And when they delve into the facts surrounding the potato famine they find that their ancestors were brutal landowners who were happy to watch their poverty stricken tenants strave. This hisory lesson is the first of what I know will be many quirky story lines in this new series of the comedy show. They have covered all the issues of the day - keeping the series so fresh and amusing. This is the fifth run of the series and certainly one of my favourites yet. Issues covered in past series include RUC, decomissioning and many other issues that come into everyday life here in Northern Ireland. The cast behind the show are all members of the HOLE IN THE WALL GANG - all super actors and some very amusing writers are included in this group. Watch this show and met UNCLE ANDY, BILY, MA, DAD,CAL and the rest.

                          Concentrate, Concentrate In today’s society it’s extremely hard to keep up with the increased fast rate that life moves at. We often need a little something to help us get through I all – and there’s nothing better to try than Pro Plus – at least its legal. I used to find it really hard to keep up with things when I was sitting my G.C.S.E. exams and then my A’Levels and to hold down my two part time jobs ( one in a local hotel and the other in a small but rather busy local bar) I always found it hard to get up in the morning, ( I worked long hours in the bar during the week) I was usually only getting 4 to 5 hours sleep a night ( not enough for anyone doing exams). And when the weekend came around all I usually wanted to do was crash –while my mates where all out having a mad time in clubs and pubs a like. I also had got into the habit of falling asleep while out on a Saturday night no matter where I was ( the loudness of the music had no affect on me what so ever) Then my mother of all people suggested I try PRO PLUS – so off I wen to my local Boots in search of these miracle tablets. Well no problem in finding them what so ever. PRO PLUS, a caffeine supplement, then became a major part in my everyday life – I took 1 tablet a day usually around mid morning – lunch time bracket. The tablet was fast acting so I was bright alert for the entire day and was fit to last right up to what ever time I managed to get to bed. Pro Plus became part of my life in a major way – and there was no way I would have got through this stage of my life if I had not found them. ( I was sure to fall asleep during exams otherwise) Pro Plus are basically caffeine tablets – which as you may know caffeine is a stimulant that can help maintain mental alertness and make you feel more awake – which Pro Plus certainly does. Pro plus relieves temporary tiredness
                          – meaning you will sail through the day with considerable easy- Great or what. Pro plus is available in packets of 24 ( which cost around £2) and packets of 96 ( which cost around £5-£6) Prices are as far as I can remember.

                            Avon Glazewear for Lips is basically a lip gloss range from Avon – and might I add a extremely good range at that. Glazewear leaves your lips really shiney and healthy looking. Glazewear is specially formulated to help protect your lips against drying ( which I found happened my lips regularly when I was using other brand products similar to glazewear). Glazewear is super moist. The Glazewear range comes in 5ml bottles with a wand applicator for precision colour. And come in nine different shades – so there is a colour to suit all tastes. The colours available include: NAUGHTY NEUTRAL GOLD DIGGER BROWN SUGAR ROSEBUD MYSTERY MAUVE TICKLED PINK SUNKISSED LILAC MIST PEACHY I personally currently use ‘TICKLED PINK’ – which is a nice but pale shade of natural pink. It looks super on my lips suiting my skin tone really well. In fact you would hardly know I had anything on my lips apart from the fact they have a lovely shine of them. I use this now all the time instead of lipstick and it’s far more natural looking. GOOD NEWS Avon have just introduced a new set of Glazewear products – Glazewear Glitter – which is available in 4 shades GOLD GLITZ VIOLET GLITZ SILVER GLITZ RED GLITZ I haven’t personally tried these yet – but I have seen RED GLITZ and it looks really nice ( so I expect I will be purchasing one very soon. I really do recommend this product – and would recommend you try it yourself – its even nice to wear them over your favourite lippy to create a super sheen look.

                              Directed by David Twohy – this sci- fi triller stars Vin Diesel, Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser and keith David. WHAT’S THE STORY A spaceship crash lands on a desert planet with only ten survivors. Among these survivors is a dangerous criminal Riddick ( played by Diesel ), pilot Caroline Fry ( played by Mitchell) and bounty hunter, Johns ( played by Hauser) Although all at odds with each other, they soon have to put their differences aside and work together in order to evade the creatures that come out to prey, once the multiple suns set and the desolate planet is plunged into total darkness. Although a low budget film, PITCH BLACK is, nevertheless, a first rate sci-fi frightener. This is one of the best sci-fi films yet and it is real proof that low budget does not always mean low quality.

                                If like me you enjoy films which are based on real life dramas or the actual lives of real people then this is certainly one to watch. Directed by the one and only Richard Attenborough, this drama stars Pierce Brosnan, Annie Galipeau, Stewart Blick and Vlasta Vrana. WHAT’S THE STORY It’s 1930’s Canada and half Indian hunter Archie Grey Owl ( Pierce Brosnan) takes to the vast wilderness to exploit the land for his own profit. Whilst out in the wilds he meets native Mohawk Anahareo ( Annie Galipeau) and falls madly in love with her. Through his meeting with Anahareo, Archie Grey Owl comes to understand nature and begins to write books and give lectures on conservation. Then a reporter discovers that Archie Grey Owl is not what he is making out to be or what he seems to be. The truth being that , he wasn’t born an Indian at all, but grew up in England as Archie Belaney. This film was a dream that Richard Attenborough had held close to his heart for many years – Attenborough wanted to bring this amazing real life story to the big screen – but it has taken many years to do so – but on the whole it is a very enjoyable story. It’s hard in fact to believe that the story of Grey Owl would be in fact so interesting. But in my opinion it is only technically good looking, but crippingly dull offering which should only be watched by those of us who are severely sleep deprived.
