After being hooked on 50 shades of grey and then 50 shades darker, i couldnt wait to get my hands on 50 shades freed, and it did not disappoint. I loved the way the book wrapped up the trilogy and left no stone unturned when it came to explaining everything. All secrets came out in the open and finally we realised the whole truth of what was behind Christian Greys ways. A gripping book even better than the first two, love, lust, passion, drama, intensity, this book had it all. I loved how all the characters had their own stories that came to life and we became more involved with their dramas as well as the drama between the two main characters. The ending was perfect, as We finally saw the results that we were hoping for. I had a smile on my face when i had finished the book but at the same time i was quite sad that i had finished reading them all. I couldn't read another book for at least a few days because i was still caught up in the world of 50 shades. Overall, one of the best books i have ever read, full of drama and suspense but also full of laughs and joy.
I was hooked on 50 Shades of Grey and 50 Shades Darker did not disappoint as a follow up. I couldnt wait to get my hands on 50 Shades Darker, especially after being sucked into the fantasy world of 50 shades of grey. I was intrigued as to what was to happen next with the relationship between Christian Grey and Anastacia Steele. Similar to the first book, the sexual references did get quite boring to read as i felt they were very repetitive. I did however still enjoy the story and finding out all kinds of mysteries that explained why Christian Grey was the way he was. A perfect bit of bedtime reading, although it resulted in sleepless nights because i just couldnt put the book down until i was finished. Anyone who liked 50 shades of grey would be mad not to read this superb follow up. It was also interesting to see different characters in the book coming to life more and becoming more involved in the storyline. Overall a great read and would definitly read it again.
Normally i wouldn't go for books like this. erotic fantasies, if you will. But after being pestered constantly by my friends i eventually gave in and read it. And i was not disappointed in the slightest. Now, i will admit, all the sexual references in the book, as exciting and interesting they were to read the first few times, did become boring. I felt like i was reading the same thing over and over again. It became very repetitive. What kept me reading however, was the character of Christian Grey and the journey you see in him as his personality evolves. I wanted to read on to find out why he behaved the way he did and why he felt the way he did. I was hooked and anticipating what he would do next. If you're into erotic novels you may not be disappointed. The scenes are quite graphic, but it does seem to repeat itself in some ways when it comes to these scenes. I for one was not disappointed and can understand why it has become such a popular best seller. I would definitly read it more than once.
I have had these straighteners for a good few years now and they haven't let me down. The variable heat setting means you can adjust the heat according to your hair type and what kind of look you are trying to create. This makes them suitable for people with with thick hair as well as fine hair. The handles dont get hot so there is very small risk of burning yourself on them and the swivel cord is very handy. The wire could be longer but for personal use at home this factor doesnt really make any difference. They warm up exceptionally quickly and the time it takes to straighten your hair is also very impressive, so no waiting around. Great if you have to get ready in a hurry. I love the fact they are ionic meaning there is less frizz and they keave your hair feeling soft and not burnt and dried out. Because of this along with all its other features i would say these are just as good as using GHD's. My hair is very thick and wavy and can be very difficult to manage but these do just aa good a job on my hair than GHD's if not better for just a fraction of the price. All in all i would definitly recommend these. They are great to use and work perfectly. They are long lasting as well and very hardwearing.
If you're thinking of buying the blackberry curve 8520 i would think again. The phone has so many features that can be really frustrating and in comparison to so many other phones on the market it just isn't worth the money you're going to pay for it. Where to start, well the first annoying feature begins with switching the phone on. If you switch the phone off yourself and then back on again without taking the battery out then switching the phone on then the phone switches on with just the slightest touch of the power key. You don't even have to hold the button down for a couple of seconds. This is quite handy unless of coures you at a cinema or on an airplane, for example, and you accidently knock the button on your phone turning it on without even realising. If the battery dies on the phone or you need to take the battery out for any length of time for whatever reason, this is where the problems occur. The phone comes up with a loading screen and the phone can take ages to actually turn on. This can be really frustrating especially if there is an emergency or you need your phone on in a hurry. Another useless thing about this phone is that it freezes constantly. Whether its when you turn the phone on, using an app or just trying to get to the main menu it more often than not freezes up completely, meaning you have to normally take the battery out and put it back in again. And again returning to my earlier point you then have the awful wait for the phone to turn back on just so you can use it again. The Blackberry Curve does have some useful features such as the music buttons on the top of the phone making it easier to skip or pause music that you are listening to. The led light that flashes when you have a message or phone call is also handy as it means you can see if you have a message or missed call just by looking at it and without the need to press any buttons. Both these features i did miss when upgrading to a different phone but they become pretty useless when you barely get to use the phone for what its for because its always frozen or trying to turn on. Blackberrys are definitly not hard wearing either. They don't last very long compared to pretty much every other phone on the market. You'll be lucky if it lasts you a year and for the money you pay for it it's just not worth it.
Ive had this phone for about 6 months now after upgrading from a blackberry curve and it has not disappointed. I was very impressed at how much of the phone is taken up by the screen, which makes it great for watching videos, playing games and enjoying all of the apps off of the app store. The phone isn't too heavy and nice and slim making it comfortable to hold. It's a nice size but not too big and chunky that it gets in the way. It's easy to use and all the apps are laid out well so its easy to find exactly what you are looking for. The app store, in my opinion, is far better than the apple store for iphones and the blackberry market. the reason being, so many great apps are free or you can buy slightly better ones for a tiny price. Theres so much variety as well and always new apps and updates so its very difficult to get bored with it. The music player is good and gives you the option to search a certain song instead of going through a long list to find the one you want to listen to. All your emails are stored in one place. As for the SMS (texting), for anyone who already has a touch screen phone it won't be a problem for. the letters are quite close together so anyone with bigger thumbs may have trouble sometimes with pressing the right letter but with the auto rotate feature you can turn the phone so that it is horizontal. this makes the keyboard bigger and easier to use. anyone who isnt used to a touch screen phone may find it tricky to begin with but it won't take long for anyone to get the hang of it. The phone is so easy to use and since i have got the phone six people in my family and two friends have now decided to get the phone as well. This is including younger brothers, parents and grandparents. I think this definitly has proven that samsung have made a phone for all generations. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 has a memory card slot meaning there is plenty of room to store thousands of photos, videos, songs and apps. It also has wifi which makes using the internet nice and easy especially if you have wifi at home. This means you can use the internet without using up your mobile packet data. It's nice and strong too. Coming from someone who is quite clumsy and drop my phone fairly often the most ive got is two tiny scratches on my screen which are barely even noticable. The one main criticism i do have is the battery life isn't great. But if you charge it up overnight the battery will last for at least a day. It just varies depending on how much you use the phone for apps and music.
