      I would recommend to a friend

      What you liked about the product: I loved how easy it was to find. I had been dying my hair dark brown and as it faded I wanted something different but not too drastic. I found this at Tesco and it almost looked purple so I got it. It turns out a dark brown with a red tint and it looks really amazing in the sun. I loved the foam, it covered everything really well. and it was only about £10. it comes with a conditioner that lasts as long as the colour does if it's used sparingly and it makes your hair very shiny and smells great.

      What you didn't like about the product: it says to leave it on your hair for 30 minutes and that is as long as it should be. I accidentally didn't time mine the second time and it came out really dark, but I did still love it. when you take a shower right after, since there is red in it and red is the first to come out, the water will run red for a while and that caught me off guard, but it won't stain the tub. But overall I am ecstatic about this product!!

      Would you recommend this product?: yes!

      What you liked about the product: Not much, to be honest. It was easy to apply like the rest of Garnier's dyes and it smelled nice, but that's about it.

      What you didn't like about the product: The colour was very deceiving. I have dyed dark-brown hair and was looking to add a bit of a lighter red tone to it, and I've used a lot of Garnier dyes in the past, but this was a bad choice. The colour ended up being a very, very bright, unnatural red shade and looked terrible--not what I was expecting at all, and definitely not what was shown on the box! I only left it on for about 10 minutes (half the recommended time) and immediately began to wash it out when I saw the colour was not at all what I expected.

      Would you recommend the product: No -- it's way too unpredictable.

      Where you purchased the product: Asda

      Finally got around to seeing Seven Psychopaths last night. The movie in a word? Mixed. Some great ideas get floated around but the film seems to be to all over the place to decide what it wants to do.
      I Thought In Bruges was pretty good. It was tight and intelligent and I was hoping to see an expanded version of that. If In Bruges was focused this movie is the opposite.

      Collin Farrell Plays an alcoholic screen writer trying to finish his script, Seven Psychopaths, but is struggling. Sam Rockwell plays his cool but seemingly dimwitted friend. Now if your reading this I'm going to assume you watched the trailer so I'm not going to waste time re telling you someone stole a fuckin' dog.

      Now this is one of those movies that tries to delve into movie stereotypes and situations. The characters talk alot about movies. How a shoot out is supposed to happen at the end and other conventional ideas like that. Now I got no problem with that, I enjoy movies like that, but Seven Psychopaths just seemed to miss the mark on execution. The conventional things they mention I assume there going to do something new with it but instead it feels like the characters just kinda do what they want. The word random comes to mind but its not the word I want.

      Seven Psychopaths is not a bad movie. I'd say the first two acts are very solid. The story is very unconventional, I was very interested in the twisting plot but once the 3rd act rolls around the film starts to lose the intrigue. Plot elements are set up and brought together but they really just don't add anything to the story. You find out guy A has been secretly guy B in a story all along but then they do nothing with it and it doesn't do a thing for the story.

      For example, Lets pretend your watching a movie about you and me living in sleepy hollow. In it, I tell you a tale about the headless horsemen. Then later you find out from your friend that I actually am the headless horsemen. Exciting right? But then absolutely nothing is done with it. We never hear of the horsemen again or why I am him.

      That's the best way I can describe what Seven Psychopaths does. They would connect very interesting plot points but then that's all they would do, connect them, then never mention them again. Now this isn't with all character's and plot points, some are used very well but I will say that this is my biggest issue with the movie. Maybe I'm missing some grand message but, I just don't get it.

      Seven Psychopaths wants to leave you with things to think about but afterwards I couldn't for the life of me tell what the hell they wanted me to think about. Now aside from my issues with some of the plot, the movie is good, But I would only recommend it to a friend that know's film. An average film goer will come of out Seven Psychopaths confused and probably a little irritated. For the movie man though, there is plenty to discuss and talk about, as is with all movies that have movies in them. Its one of my favorite games to play with the audience is when a character in a film gives a line like "If this was a movie...." So much depth. I love it. Will I be re watching this movie? Absolutely. While I'm a little confused right now I still think there's more to find in Seven Psychopath's than one viewing can grant me.
      Seven Psychopaths is a solid follow up from Martin McDonagh. The Film is filled with lots for cinephiles to discuss but I feel an average movie goer will be walking away with a mixed bag.

      I wound up getting a small tea tree water toner and the Snowcake bar of soap from the Lush store. According to the sales lady, that was one of the most moisturising bars they had. So, I was suckered in to buying myself some soap as a birthday treat to myself. All the staff was super friendly and a tad overwhelming with their willingness to help (which is another reason why I was compelled to buy something).I bought the stuff and was so eager to go home and try it. I love how everything in Lush is handmade and you don't have to worry about nasty chemicals. I loved the smell of snowcake... it was clean and freshly warm and inviting. Another bonus about the smell is that it lasted! I put on unscented lotion (Kiehls) after the shower and had a hint of snowcake on my body for hours to come. And the soap lathered up like crazy to a milky texture. It was ever so luxurious!
      The only negative about the soap (besides the price) is that it widdled down far too quickly. I would break off a smallish portion of soap, expecting to get four to five showers from it, and I only got about two. Also, unfortunately snowcake is a seasonal item, so they won't have it year round! The scent was perfect.

        When I started reading The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer I was excited. I liked the writing style, it had an eeriness to it. I kept reading finding myself drawn into the mystery of Mara's accident and, like Mara herself, questioned whether all the stranger visions were insanity or reality. I liked Mara and I liked the supporting characters. Then over half way through the book things get weird. Not weird in a good way either.

        Hodkin's intricate and haunting story jumps off the cliff and starts running, but its like a chicken with its head cut off. We're slammed with a lot of information and it becomes a nonsensical whirlwind. The plot is so muddled at the end I just wanted it to be over. That's the whole problem with Mara Dyer, you spend the entire book attempting to make sense of things only for them to make less sense at the end then in the beginning.

        This book had such a promising beginning, but in the end it fell prey to the author's inability to write an ending. Since we know the book has a sequel it seems Hodkin decided to rush through her explanations and didn't seem to care about the end of this book. I'm assuming that the real story, the one the author wants to tell is in the sequel, and this book had to be written in order to get there. This seems to be a problem with many YA books these day, the authors are in such a rush to write the next book they speed through the previous one and it makes things sloppy.

        That said I don't think I'll be reading the sequel, but Michelle Hodkin shows promise and I'd be willing to try another book from her in the future.

        WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
        Light Intense Auburn is the perfect shade of red. When I first dye my hair with it, it's a very pretty and rich shade of deep red, but then fades nicely to a bright, vibrant red. Even though I have blonde hair (so I never bleach) the results are the same on every hair colour. In fact, I have a friend with the deepest brown hair I have ever seen and we had almost the same exact colour after she dyed it! It also doesn't damage hair that I've noticed.

        WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
        The only thing I can think of that I didn't like is how easily it stains! The colour rubs off on pillows for the first few nights and runs when wet even two weeks after dyeing, but most reds do that.

        Personally I think it is worth the money and I already have recommended to a friend.

          This wine is vintage from 2008 and from Octivia, Central Coast. I tried this wine at a dinner party at my cousins house. Personally I think it went down quite well with the group as a whole and was a nice supplement to compliment the dinner. The colour is a translucent ruby red, which looked really pretty. It smelt quite cherry like which was nice, and also had a distinctive sweet smell like the smell of sweets. It tasted slightly sweet yet was very balanced. There was clear notes of cherry and pomegranate with a clear finish.
          ALL IN ALL A pretty middle-of-the-road red that would be good for a group. It has strong fruity notes to please the non-wine-drinkers and enough complexity to please the oenophiles.
          Scores out of 10:
          Appearance: 8
          Smell: 6
          Taste: 7
          I think that this wine is not one that could be classed as anyone's faviourte but its not absoloutly revolting.

          On that note, if you have any quiries please do not hesitate to message me.


          Its not the best wine in the world and I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it however I do recommend you try it.

          I absolutely adore the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. As someone who has been plagued with oily skin, acne, and clogged pores since she hit puberty, I'm always on the search for a nice detoxifying mud mask that will be that cure to my skin problems. I think this mask may be my favourite one I've tried so far. First off, it's dirt cheap. I think you can get it for around £3, depending on where you buy it. Considering you get a gigantic tube of product, this is a great deal. The mask smells like mint and has a mentholated feeling when it's applied to the skin. The only downside is that the consistency is like hardened peanut butter, which makes it messy to use. One of the main ingredients to the mask is kaolin clay, which is great for really drawing out the impurities from your pores. I have this gross fascination with seeing the mask dry on my face and the little dark spots on my acne and pores showing where all the excess oil is being absorbed into the clay. This mask really does help clean my pores and dry up my zits, which makes it perfect for those days when I get a massive cystic break out or when I get home from a night out with a heavy face of make up.

          I got this game free as a PS Vita bundle pack when I purchased my PS Vita. can't even connect to a single game.
          The campaign isn't worth replaying at all as it is way too frustrating. I am an extremely tolerant person and yet I got a bit irritated. The only thing that is re playable is the " Hostile" mode which is basically survival. " Hostile" is a bit of fun to just be goofing off in.
          The developers tried to use the capacitive touch screen on the Vita to their advantage but it kind of ruined it. I accidentally threw grenades a lot of times using the touch screen while trying to reload using the square button. You use the knife by either touching the icon below the grenade "button" or by slashing the main screen. I think they could have used the back touch screen for using the knife.
          The graphics do look amazing for a portable system and the colours are a bit diverse.
          Since I got this for free as part of a bundle I will give it a bit higher than I would if I had payed for it. It is a bit of fun to goof off in while waiting for your PSN games to download or while waiting for a better game to arrive from amazon.

            I can't remember how I got this perfume, I think it was a gift? Well anyway, I really liked it!
            It smells like raspberries and champagne and reminds me of a beautiful summery holiday.
            This is one of my go-to non-offensive work perfumes that I wear in spring/summer. The staying power isn't great, but there is something uplifting about the scent. I put it on and I'm like, hmm, maybe instead of wearing all black today like I always do I'll wear the one floral shirt I own. It's a little sweet and flowery, a little fruity, and pretty damn classy.
            If you are reading this in a summer dress, and its nice and warm outside, then pop to the shops and get yourself some of this, a few squirts is all you need. Its not really sophisticated enough to be wearing daily or when you are going on a night out.

              I went through a stage where I wore the Double Wear foundation pretty much every single day of my life last year, and I saw a bottle of it sitting in my foundation drawer so I figured I would post a review about it since I haven't before.
              I do like this foundation, obviously, otherwise I wouldn't have worn it daily. It has really good coverage and I am always a sucker for a legit full coverage foundation. My only complaint about it is probably the colouring, because I find that even the lightest shade makes my skin look really yellow. It was also very drying on my skin. Some people complain that it looks oily on them though, so I suppose you just really have to try it out for yourself. Also, I did have a slight issue with it breaking me out. Overall, if you're looking for coverage, this is a great one, but the other aspects of it really kick it down the totem pole for me.

              Last week, I re-lived the magic of friendship in "Toy Story 3". The film, which has had mixed reviews, was perfect in my eyes. With humor that both children today, and college students who grew up with the films could understand and enjoy. There were the same friendly faces, and a few new ones who showed up, and the bonds that were formed between the toys and Andy were both moving and hilarious!

              Andy going to college, and realizing that it's okay to let go of childhood dreams. I don't want to spoil any of the storyline, but I can tell you this--- surround yourself with good friends, some who you "grew up" with, and if you can't get a hold of anyone, then remember them fondly as you watch this film. I was happy to share the tears of growing up and the hope of the future with some of my colleagues. We grew up with Andy, and now we are letting go, TOGETHER.

              Growing up and moving on can be tough to say the least; but growing up can be so meaningful when you have a few good friends by your side to share the laughs, tears and the memories of what once was, and what's coming to be.

              So here's to good friends, and here's to good memories. Thanks Disney/Pixar for reminding us all the importance of friendship, and the importance of letting go.

              WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
              This product is designed to restructure your hair and make it grow in thicker with emphasis on scalp nourishment, and believe me you FEEL it work. That's part of what I love about it, is when you shampoo/condition your scalp with this product it's like chewing super minty gum but for your scalp. It's hyper stimulating and feels brisk and cool, but when you get out of the shower you really feel the tingle. I have been using this kit for about half a year, and my thin norwegian blonde hair has doubled in thickness. I cannot emphasize more that this product is the kind that must be used over time but the results are incredible compared to before. Hair is thicker, shinier, and MUCH STRONGER noticeably.

              WHAT I DIDN'T
              The first time you use it, the chill of the scalp nourishing may be uncomfortable and feel like it is "burning" or irritated but you don't notice it after the first time. This is mostly just because other shampoos don't increase circulation at your roots. I have absolutely no other complaints outside of that though.

              Does exactly what it says on the tub, gives you masses of volume and a gorgeous beachy texture without any chemicals ruining your hair. It lasts forever, smells gorgeous and deeply cleanses your hair. I have dry, curly hair and it works wonders for me without ruining my hair, even though I have bleached tips which are already very damaged! You don't need much AT ALL to get a really good lather going on.

              WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE SO MUCH ABOUT THE PRODUCT
              The texture is strange if you aren't used to LUSH's tendency to use weird ways of delivering their products like solid shampoo bars and tubs of shampoo. I can't say anything negative about it personally, just that people unfamiliar with LUSH might find the texture of the product to be too far from the usual bottled shampoos.

              Would you recommend the product: YES and I only bought it for £11.25

              I got got this album so that I could realise what all the hype was about. Dark Side of the Moon was one of the most popular albums of all time and still is a very popular title. This is because it is a great album that sums up all of what Pink Floyd was doing before and refines it into a more marketable format. (Mostly because it didn't contain any songs that were 40 minutes long.) This is an album that lives up to the hype, and is a true classic rock masterpiece.

              ALL IN ALL two big thumbs up! This is an iconic album and has an iconic cover to match the music. I am very glad I bothered to get this album and yes I would recommend it to a friend, if you haven't heard it yet, you need to. No regrets hey - Its a classic!
