Having needing an extra mobile phone I decided to purchase the Sony Ericsson C905. Upon receiving the phone i found it to be rather attractive and with the keypad hidden, the phone was perfect for me as sometimes I press the buttons on my phone by mistake!.
The Sony Ericsson C905 comes complete with the following features:
2. Auto focus
3. Xenon flash
4. Wallpaper animation
5. Digital Zoom
6. Image stabilizer
8. video Recorder
9. Video stabilizer
The phone comes with a 2gb memory card intact and also has a pen drive that will allow you to slot in your memory card into the holder. This will enable you to transfer files easily.
The Samsung C905 has an 8.1 Megapixel camera which is great for taking them quality pictures. The camera has a Xenon Flash which is great for taking pictures at night or when it's too dark to take pictures. It has several other features such as, face detection, auto focus, image stabiliser, reduction and finally smart contrast. Overall the pictures turn out really good and the features are easy to use.
The battery of any mobile phone is very important, as some batteries tend to run out so quick. The Sony Ericsson C905 is brilliant in battery life. I have played games, surfed the internet and used my phone for more than two hours and the battery hardly goes behind 2 bars. Also reducing brightness will enhance the battery life more.
As with any other mobile phone in the market, the Sony Ericsson includes Bluetooth capabilities so that you can send your files, images and music to your friends and family.
The Sony Ericssson C905 has GPS included, a tracking device which is brilliant for them outdoor adventures. No matter where you are you won't get lost.
The C905 has Wi-Fi and will connect wherever there is a wireless internet connection. This is great for surfing the internet using your wireless network on your phone, the pages always load up fast.
Overall this is a great phone to have and i have not had any problems whatsoever.

I have been searching rapidly on the internet for an espresso machine and recently found the Magimix Nespresso M100. After reading some good reviews I purchased this model and I totally love it, it is easy to use and takes up less counter space than most other coffee machines out there.
The Magimix Nespresso M100 has a detachable water container, drip tray and the coffee collector slips out easily for easy cleaning. When I opened my product, it was nicely packaged and the machine looked rather nice, smooth and had rounded edges. Having previously owed coffee machine before, this machine was easy to clean.
The nespresso is quick and very easy to use. Following the instructions in the manual, I waited for the water to heat up then run some water through the machine as instructed. This heated up the insides of the machine and it ensured the coffee would be hot.
I then pushed the handle back and pot the coffee pod, and pressed the water button for a little while (30 seconds) and then lifted the handle back up again. The coffee was amazing and i have never tasted a cleaner fresh coffee.
This coffee machine is the cheapest and most efficient in my opinion, I purchased the nespresso for £86.00. The only downside for this product is the capsules, which you have to order but it is always easy and delivery is always efficient and complete.
Overall a brilliant addition to my kitchen and is always a hit with guests, highly recommended to all coffee lovers!.

I purchased the Samsung LE32A457 in January, and have been impressed. It came with a 5 year warranty and despite falling above my budget this flat panel TV from Samsung has revealed some surprisingly high end features.
I found the TV to be very easy to set up. I would also like to mention that to get the best from this Samsung model you do have to tweak some of the default settings. The picture quality of TV is impressing; with minimum use of the volume bar the sound clarity is just perfect.
So far in my opinion this LCD TV is one of the out there, the picture quality along with its clear excellent sound quality makes it amongst the best LCD TVs in the market. I have the TV in my front room and it looks fantastic, with it's elegant style and I have it wall mounted which looks the part. I usually let my bf do all the drilling and handy work around the house but surprisingly I wall mounted the TV myself =], the instructions are really easy to follow.
The Samsung LE32A457 is excellent value for money unlike some of the other TVs out there. I bought mine for £430 which is a bargain. I am totally in love with this TV but Seriously if you are planning on buying a TV, I would highly recommend this.

I love playing games and chatting to my friends and family online, so I decided to buy this headset. This headset is quite nice and does a fantastic job from blocking background noises which have always annoyed me with my previously owned headsets. Since this headset is wireless, users can play their games that requires voice communication wirelessly on their PC's and the microphone performs excellent.
Although the headset looks classy it does still lack in the quality of the audio. The headset fits perfectly but the ear cups are too small for my ears and therefore lack comfort. This headset would be perfect if they had larger cups to fit the ears. The HS-1200 also lets the user retract the microphone according to the position they want it in. I have never had a problem with this and have felt comfortable when chatting. Nevertheless the microphone can be turned on and off which depends on the boom's location, to switch it off the microphone will need to be flipped all the way up, and to flip it all the way down near the mouth to switch it back on.
The headphones has a modern design. The black leather covers the headband which is joined by chrome sliders above each ear cup that allow you to adjust the fit according to your head size. The headset can be charged via the USB port of your computer and can be used for up to 8 hours, which is more than enough I think, unless people will need them for more than 8 hours!.
Overall I think that the design and the quality of the headset is fantastic and will suit any user that wants to be wireless! Not recommended for people wanting better high quality sound and those who have small ears!

I recently bought this iron from reading some good reviews. I was then recommended to buy this model as I have always owned a Morphy Richards iron before and have found them to be reliable and do a suitable job. I have been looking for an iron now for the last month and I finally got this iron and so decided to write a review on it for all you people interested in it!.
Ok so let me start with some good points:
1. The iron is a good quality iron, and is fairly easy to set up.
2. It heats up rapidly and irons fantastically without giving any problems such as iron marks etc.
3. It's lightweight and makes the chore so much easier!
4. It leaves no creases and flats out every little detail.
5. The water tank last forever! Until of course you have to refill it, i recently filled my water tank and it lasted me around a month before i had to finally refill it.
6. It is nicely built and therefore prevents water from leaking, and the iron scaling up.
Not much of a point but i can only think of one bad point!
1. The colour! If it only came in pink =P (am such a girly girl :D)
The iron is good quality, and has an excellent steam output which always makes my clothes nice and neat, which is always nice. The iron is brightly coloured and will attract lots of girls am sure, but if only it came in other colours! The morphy Richards 42288 iron has a long cord for ease of use.
The iron is great value for money, and I purchased mine at a bargain price of £110. The performance of the iron is fantastic although if it was made into a larger iron it would be nice. It is very large in storage wise.
Overall i would recommend this iron to people who are interested. Although some people might prefer to buy a much heavier and larger iron this iron wont be suitable for you as it lightweight and quite small. But as i am a small girl and quite fragile, i prefer something lighter and this was the perfect iron for me!.

Welcome to the world of ASOS!. A few months ago i had heard about ASOS and was dazzled by the name, but then was really drawn into it when i started browsing the range of clothes they had on offer. its fun, fantastic and cover an extensive range of garments to choose from for both male and female sexes. They have a variety of designer clothes such as FCUK, Dolce & Gabbana, Playboy, Fudge and the list goes on!.
Not only does ASOS offer a huge range of designer clothing but offer clothing typically worn by celebrities such as Britney Spears, Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani and many others. Prices ranges from £8.00 -£55.00. Having said that, ASOS have many clothes on offer from time to time, and you would expect to pick up a good deal at times.
==Shopping On ASOS==
I found the whole experience really easy to navigate and the amount of pictures of each item is fantastic. You can practically see every angle of the item you like and i find this really good if your really interested in it. Each item of clothing will bring up a comprehensive list of thumbnail images being modeled. For example if your looking at women's jeans, it will bring up a page with all the jeans on offer and whom the jeans is being in the style of. Really useful if you want to wear some jeans worn by victoria beckham for example. Every thumbnail image will be shown from every angle. The page will also list the sizes available and a clear descriptive of the item you are looking at.
Its simple to order. Once you have chosen the item of clothing you like just add it to your basket which will always be shown on the top left hand corner of the page. If you decide to continue shopping the amount will always change as you go along. Once you have finished shopping you will be given three options to choose from; Continue Shopping, View Basket and Proceed to Checkout. Order numbers are given once you have purchased your item and you can track the progress when ever you like on the website.
Delivery is fairly quick, and orders over £50.00 is free. Orders under £50.00 will include the standard delivery charged at £2.95, but if you rather have it quicker you can opt to have it delivered the next working day which will cost at £4.95. All orders will require a signature upon delivery.
==Delivery out of the UK==
ASOS will usually deliver anywhere in the world and postage will usually cost depending on the weight and which country it is going to. ASOS says it takes around 4-8 working days to deliver to Europe and 8-14 days to the rest of the world.
What do i think of ASOS?
I think its fantastic and I'm a total addict to the website. The clothes are really affordable and fashion wise is always good. New styles are always added and the navigation is fantastic. Delivery is always on time and I would recommend any one to use ASOS.

If your a complete utter rocker like myself, you will love this game! its so fun and it is just perfect for the ultimate rocker. This game is so addictive and boasts a rocking set list. You can use a guitar and rock away while playing the games 74 head banging tracks.
For all those people that are not familiar with the game, Guitar Hero lets players assume that they are the role of a lead guitarist in a self-made band which they can create. As you advance through the stage known otherwise as "on tour," you unlock additional songs and venues as you go along.
For those people who are familiar with the game. The controls are pretty much the same five colored fret buttons, one strum bar, and a cascade of chords. The better you perform in a career mode, the chances are the more in game cash you will get for your self to unlock new songs, guitars, characters, outfits, and other stuff. The game modes are pretty much the same, it has solo or co-op career and quick play.
Yet again the graphics are average but not as cool as the Playstation 3 or the X-Box 360, but still the game play is just awesome on the wii. Once i started to play, the first few songs was quite hard to play but nevertheless i got into the swing and happily rocked my way through.
Guitar hero really does give the wii a real edge with the game play side of things and I have spent countless hours playing this game as it is so addictive and with the online mode you can choose to play with other random rockers like yourselves and challenge them which makes it more competitive.
The famous les paul guitar is still based and is better than ever. The controller is wireless and it really does benefit. The fret buttons are not solid colors anymore, it has now been changed to black with a note color that borders it. The controller now comes with two sheets of stickers which allows to customize the look of your guitar....and yes, I have covered my guitar with all the 'rock' stickers that come free with the game but most of them are company stickers i must say (Activision).
Recommended?. Yes - if your a real rocker you will love this game, the game play is awesome i have my whole family rocking away like mad!.

I remember when my dad bought the Nintendo N64 time ago back in my school days, there was actually a big hype about the console and i couldn't see why until i actually played it myself and was addicted to it.
Now with a bigger and more better cutting edge technology Nintendo have launched the 'WII', yes the nintendo wii is the most entertaining physical gaming experience iv ever had in my opinion. It is just a real pleasure to play with and is fun for all kinds of users. I bought my nintendo wii from amazon back in the summer of 2008 as i was looking for a good console to past my time. It was quite hard to choose, as there were many good consoles out and i knew i had to get my hands on the nintendo wii as it was the most talked about console during that time.
I must say i am an absolute addict with some of the games such as guitar hero and wii sports, if anyone reading this have played it will know what i mean =).
Nintendo has many variety of games on the market, but have less to choose from compared to other consoles such as the playstation 3 and the X-Box 360. Nevertheless a huge range of games is available for the gamer to choose from, i recently purchased mario kart which brings me back memories of them N64 days. Many of the games are simple and clear meaning you can concentrate more on the game play rather than messing around with the settings.
The technology is truly fantastic, the ability to hold a guitar and play whilst looking at the screen is fascinating. I really enjoy playing some of the games as the controls make a it real life experience and it is truly very entertaining.
==Ease of Play==
The controls are easy to navigate. It contains large, clear buttons and also contains information on how to play when playing a game. The main buttons to use on the pad are the 'A' button on top and 'B' the 'trigger' button, and that's about it. On the wii sports the menu system is fairly easy to use, there is only one button ever to press for the games as you are physically waving the remote around during play or moving the pointer around, which is a fun way of playing a game. The controls you use depends really on the game that you are playing, so for example bowling you just bowl like you would do in a real bowling alley and playing tennis; you would just swing the racket to the opponent. This is much more easier than to use buttons on a Playstation 3 Keypad.
I bought my wii for £184 with one game, a bargain at the time as it was going for more than £200 if i am correct. You can now pick up the wii for around £150 - £190, from most major retailers. Ebay has these consoles up for sale, i was looking through the other day and a seller was selling ten games and the console together for £200.
So what do i think of the Nintendo Wii? well i think it's one of the best consoles out there. Its entertaining, fun and most of all my nan can play it, and so can you!. My advice to all of you who have not got one yet is go and get yourselves one of these, trust me you will not be disappointed. I spend my spare time just passing time on this console and it is the best purchase iv made. It is worth every penny.

I totally love watching this drama series on the BBC. It kinda reminds me of my school days oddly enough and gives me fond memories when i was a school girl. Actually some of the kids that star in this program are what i'd say similar to those girls whilst i was at school!. Funnily enough the program concentrates also on the teacher side rather than only the kids at the school, which slightly make the program some what different to Grange Hill in my opinion.
Waterloo Road is a comprehensive school which is set in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. The program is about trouble school kids dealing with teenage pregnancy, abortion and suicide and focuses also on the teachers which make it unique. With this in mind Waterloo Road focuses on the teachers complicated lives, divorces and other related issues. The episodes usually are about internal going ons in the school. There has been three series of Waterloo Road and the fourth series is currently airing now. The program usually starts with what happen previously in the episode and then resumes. I have watched all the series of Waterloo Road since it's launch back in 2006 as i am an avid fan of the series =).
I would recommend everyone to watch it, as not only does it give me fond memories but also gives you an insight of what happens in todays schools. Some of the episodes have been really good to watch and enjoyable and i am always wanting to watch the next episode when it is finished. I think that the program also engages the younger audience in dealing with social issues and bullying, as this is quite common in todays schools.
Waterloo Road is a brilliant program to watch. Some of the episodes has always been interesting to watch and kept me glued to the TV screen. I have recommended some of my friends to watch it, and now they love it. Most of the episodes featured in the program seems to be focusing on the real life issues and i think that this is quite useful for people watching. I would definitely recommend you to watch Waterloo Road.

Christian dior: Miss Dior Cherie. A fantastic and sexy perfume yet again from the brand. I received this as a present for christmas, as i was always banging on about wanting it and so, santa listened to me seeing how i behaved myself and deleivered it =).
The look is really stylish just like all other christian dior branded perfumes out there on the market and i must say that once i set my eyes on it i really fell in love with it. It really does stand out from all the other perfume collection as i currently own as it has the look and design which once you look at it, you immediatley think that this is a classy womans perfume.
So once i opened my present and to my amazement found that i received this perfume, my eyes glowed with excitement and without hesitation i put some of this perfume on and the smell was absolutley gorgeous, it has a sweet just about right for me, and not too heavy. It has that fruity aroma that will make you smell all day long. I woke up the next morning and i could still smell some this perfume on me!.
Ok, so the price is a bit heavy. I'm not one to brag but seriously this is the perfume to get ladies if you want all the men to be attracted =). Recently i checked a few stores that sell this perfume and a 50ml bottle will usually retail at £42 and a 100ml bottle will be on the market for around £60. This perfume is worth every penny in my opinion and you will definitely buy again. I received the 100ml bottle jsut in case your wondering which one i received =).
I would most definitely reccomend you to buy this perfume, not only is the smell so nice, but it will make you feel fresh and like you have just come out of a hot shower =). The price tag says it all, and i have bought two more 100ml of this perfume... and the one i received is still not finished!.
A gourgeous perfume yet again from Christian Dior and it is a must have for all them sexy classy women out there, trust me you will not be dissapointed!.

I'v been using paypal now for almost five years in which I use to pay for goods online and on ebay and also to sell my stuff on ebay.
Registration is simple, you put in your personal details and address and your ready to go. It took me around 2-3 minutes to sign up and i was a registerered user. Once you have registerd with paypal you can enter your debit & credit card details so that you can pay online. However you need to confirm the cards. This process takes around 2-3 days whereas paypal deposits two small amounts in which you need to check with in a few days time. You will then need to confirm them on the website. Then there is the business of confirming that you live at the address you have entered and this process is simple, paypal rings the number you give and an automated message from paypal gives you a four digit pin for you to enter. This will then confirm the address.
It's simple to use paypal. If you are buying goods from ebay or anywhere online and decide to pay with paypal, it automatically takes you to the paypal website in which you can pay with either your debit/credit or even do an instant bank transfer.
I think the most important and crucial point paypal has made to benefit its users is the dispute console, we all know there are some dodgy sellers and i have been a victim before, I opened up a dispute and i got my full refund. The resolution centre is there to help buyers stay protected online. This ensures that the buyer is fully covered when purchasing goods.
As i am also selling on ebay now and then, i receive money for selling my items and therefore the cash i earn is then withdrawn into my bank account. It's simple enough, paypal will alert you how much money you would like to withdraw. The money will then appear in your bank account within 3-5 days but it usually takes three days in my experience. If you are selling on ebay or you own a website etc then the money you receive will be automatically placed on your balance which is shown once you sign into your paypal account. You can either withdraw it into your bank account, or leave it and use it to shop online. I usually leave it if i find something nice on ebay.
Paypal has three accounts to choose from when you sign up with them.
Personal - This is for members that usually shop online
Premier - This is for members that shop online and sell
Business - This is for members that own a business and want to sell their items on an online marketplace or a personal website.
I currently have a premier account at the moment as i usually shop online and sometimes sell my items on ebay.
==Paypal In General==
Paypal in my opinion is really good, however there are some bad points. Firstly paypal will limit your account if they think there is suspicious activity going on within your account. Even though there is nothing that you may think is going on they will still like to poke there noses in and limit your account. In this case you will either need to fax an ID or something like a recent bank statement. This has happened to me twice last year which really annoyed me. Secondly if you are a seller on ebay, then they will like to poke there noses even more, they will not let you have your monies until the buyer is satisfied with his/her item and leaves you a positive feedback. This recently happened to a friend of mine who just signed up with paypal. Also if there is a problem resolvins issues such as a buyer complaint, this process takes takes ages for paypal to resolve.
paypal's reputation has grown and is now a world wide company with millions of members and new members signing up everyday. Paypal has been the top leaders for users to pay for goods online and it has grown so much over the last few years. Overall i think paypal is a convinient way to pay online and keeps you safe from fraud. Paying with paypal could not be simpler.

I bought this tv last year as i needed a new tv for my front room. I was reccomended to buy the Sony Bravia KDL-40W4500 from a friend who said it is a must have tv for my home. I must say i have never been a tv fan, i let my bf deal with all the electronic items so once i looked up at the price tag, i was in two minds before making my mind up!. I bought the tv from my local currys and amazingly the kind assistand knocked £30 quid off after a quick negotiation, i know its not that much but atleast it's better than nothing!.
This is a fantastic HD LCD television and it brings out its full colours. I have always prefered sony as it is a japanese company which is reliable and has never let me down on any sony brand tv i have bought so far. They also make some fantastic tv's. Before buying this sony bravia tv, i decided to read up some reviews and most people gave the thumbs up which made me go ahead and purchase it.
The sony KDL - 40W4500 model is 100Hz which also features a new motionflow picture processing technology and like all the new Bravia models it uses a powerful bravia engine 2 picture processor which gives out a clean clear smooth picture. I knew when i bought the tv that the performance of the tv will last me for many years to come, and so far it has not let me down. I fell in love it as soon as i set my eyes on it and i give it a thumbs up to all those people who are planning on buying this particular model.
The HD (high definition) picture quality is the finest i have ever seen as yet and the amazing picture clarity it gives out, has amazed all the guests that has come to my house. It goes without saying that the sound is very very clear which boasts out fantastic sound clarity output, this is all thanks to the new s-force front surround speaker technology built in.
The contrast levels and its sharpness is very impressive and does not glare into your eyes as much unlike all other LCDS. I have full confidence that this sony bravia model is ONE of the best ones that i have owned.

Chris brown is one of my favourite artists and singer since he has come out in the music industry and thus was honoured to feature in some of his new music videos recently. I have always had a dream to be dancing in a music video and so i went to L.A to compete against some of the finest dancers in america. I was shocked to be selected for his upcoming music videos which left me speechless as i never ever thought i would make it
The music video which i first featured in was 'run it' which is a hip hop groove base filled track with some good beats. Although chris is still young i think he has a lot going for him at the moment and has a natural talent and is a seriously good dancer. I met him backstage for the very first time prior to making the video and he is such a nice genuine guy of that what the media in the USA has potrayed him as. He has a great voice as many will people will agree and he some how reminds me of usher. He has many many fans (mostly girls) which seems to adore him evey time he is seen .
Amongst his sexy looks and his natural talents for his smooth solid voice he has remained one the best r&b artists at the moment and it shows with his albums and singles selling in thousunds in the US alone. Chris brown seems to be hungry for more sucesess I am sure he will progress on to be one of the best artist in the world.

Gok's fashion fix is one of my favourite fashion programs to watch on television. He is a great guy with a lot of passion for women's fashion!. Whilst many women will go out and decide to buy an expensive desginer outfit from the high street, gok wan shows how great you can look without spending an awful lot of money and still look great thus saving you a lot of money.
The show. It usually starts off with with four models which gok himself transforms them into using high end desginer clothing. During the show he explains each outfit and reccomendations, he also explains exactly where to buy the outfits he is showing and how to make them more 'stylish' and 'nice'. Then comes the cat walk face off where the models come out wearing the outfits he has chosen for them and the audience has to vote on which looks the best. The show is always the same every week and becomes quite boring at times, for me anyway in my opinion.
Gok himself. I think he is quite witty and outspoken about his knowledge of fashion and is not scared to say his opinions. I think gok is genuinley a nice guy. His knowledge in the fashion industry is bright and appealing to some women. I have to admit that some of the outfits he models on the show is not of my taste bit would be to other woman. It's great to watch his show as he does have some outfits and advice to give on fashion.
Overall i think it's a great show to learn some tips!

What would i do without youtube, it's the most entertaining and possibly my favourite place to kill the time on the internet!. I have been a massive fan of youtube since its early days and have always watched my favourite videos such as the simpsons and many friends episodes i miss. Youtube is like my best friend =]. It is so easy to use and with its layout it is easy to navigate to different content of videos.
Uploading videos. Youtube used to be so slow on uploading videos in the past and it used to take me hours on end. Youtube has now updated it's servers and I recently put a video on youtube and was fascinated on how fast it uploaded, it was done in under two minutes which is incredibly fast. The servers are highly tech than it was before. You can upload any kind of video but it has to remain clean and not abusive, such videos include happy slapping etc. Usually if you upload these kind of videos they are immediatley flagged down and removed from the site.
Privacy on your videos. If you decide you want to keep your videos private you can do so and block people from embedding videos on their website etc. I usually use this setting when i have some family videos that i want to upload on to youtube.
Viewing Videos. Recently youtube updated the player and now has a clean design which looks nice. You can watch videos ranging from cartoons, comedy and some just plain silly. I usually watch comedy videos and anything that catches my eye. I recently watched a video of the worlds fastest clapper it was just weird!. Many videos are rated for over 18s and you need an account with youtube to view the video, i think this is silly as anyone under the age of 18 can sign up and watch the videos. Many videos contain pornographic material and kids can easily access by signing up. Youtube contains every video you can ever imagine, you can learn new stuff like how to mend your car, fixing your broken phone which is really uselful for some people.
Junk videos. Besides all the great videos, i have to point out that there is an overwhelming amount of junk videos that are uploaded on youtube everyday and it just spoils the videos that are entertaining and funny.
Overall Youtube offers hours of entertainment when your bored on a rainy day. =]
