Ferrero Rocher is a chocolate made by an Italian company, which also produced products such as Tic Tac and Nutella.
Ferrero Rocher's are made up of a whole hazelnut, which is surrounded by a wafer and a rich chocolate with hazelnut pieces in.
Ferrero Rocher's are conveniently, individually wrapped in a gold foil. Ferrero Rocher's are sold in seperate sizes, perfect for every occasion, for example: if you just want to treat yourself you can get a very small box with only four of the chocolates in but if you're buying them as a gift for somebody there are boxes which contain 8,12,16 or even 24! The chocolates are available from most shops including supermarkets and even local petrol stations.
These are my favorite chocolates of all time, I tend to eat them as a treat though because I am trying to watch my waistline but these are perfect if you're watching the scales because they are individual so you could just get one out of the box and then put the box back!
Costs around £3 for a box of 8!

Like I say they are nice as a treat :)
The Pursuit of Happyness is a film based on a true rags to riches story. It's about a salesman named Christopher Gardener (Will Smith), who has a 5 year old son (Jaden Smith) and a wife called Linda (Thandie Newton). Christopher is struggle to sell anything and turns out his wife has had enough of having no money an being threatened with eviction.
Things take a turn for the worse for Christopher and his son, as Linda the mother/ wife leaves. A story that shows how far a father will go for his son.
The acting in this film is amazing, I've never seen such talent and chemistry between the actors. Will and Jaden Smith, who obviously have a fantastic relationship on and off screen and this is certainly show cased in this movie.
There are moments in the film that show great emotion and intensity it's unreal how good the father and son interact with eachother.
I can't forget Thandie Newton's acting because she was also exceptional and helped to emphasize the relationship between father and son.
In my opinion this film is amazing I would highly recommend it to any one. I've watched it several times and it's such an emotional rollercoaster it brings a tear to my every time I watch it. It also becomes more apparent to me how good the film is each ime I watch it.
To me the film is a great inspiration and shows that you can dream and you can do whatever you want, if you have the determination and dedication.
The special features are also very good they give you an exciting insight to what it was really like because in the special features, the real Christopher Gardener opens up about that difficult time of life.
Special features include: Making Pursuit, father and son and off stage, than behind the movie, inside the rubiks cube and director sommentary.
Even the special features brought a tear to my eye.
Run time approx: 1hr 53 mins
If you enjoy this movie I would also highly recommend 7pounds.
Chat is a magazine that includes bizzare real life stories. I've been buying Chat for quite a while now and there's all sorts of stories in it from gruesome tales of murder to peoples' ironic lives.
Chat is a magazine the size of an A4 piece of paper that draws your attention with its wacky, yet wonderful headlines. The magazine consists of around 60 pages filled with: gossip, stories, style advice, hints and tips, competitions and puzzles such as Sudoku.
The magazine has been running for many years now and still releases weekly issues (out on Thursdays) costing only 78p.
The magazine is widely available and is sold in places like Tesco and Newsagents, better yet the magazine' also available abroad.
In my opinion this is a good magazine because the stories are so bizzarre, it's almost like watch an episode of Eastenders.
I suppose it's better for people that like a bit of gossip, particularly good because it gives me the opportunity to forget my own problems, even if it's only for half an hour.
Buy it once if you don't like you don't have to buy it again.
The Proposal is a light hearted film about a powerful boss, Margaret (Sandra Bullock) who works in a large editing company where andrew (Ryan Reynolds) also works as her PA.
Margaret is a very controlling, bossy and rather rude individual, who often intimidates people with her harsh personality and when she gets threatened with being deported for visa problems she manipulates Andrew.
Andrew is some one who is willing to do almost anything so that he gets the opportunity to get a promotion so although he doesn't like Margaret at all he is willing to put his personal feelings a side for his career.
Margaret finds her self in a number of strange situations and ends up watching some dodgy stripper as well as almost drowning.
I recently watched the proposal and I have got to say I found it incredibly funny. It's not to everyones taste though, it is more of a chick flick but my boyfriend thought it was watchable.
After sorting my cosmetics bag out, I realised that I didn't actually have a blusher anymore (god knows where thats gone?) I don't always use blusher because I am fair skinned and I tend to use bronzer but on this occasion I decided to go for a different look.
After realising I didn't have a blusher anymore I decided to nip to Superdrug to see what they were selling. To my surprise there were loads of blushers to choose from, I couldn't really decide but then I saw this product and was intrigued because it was a mousse rather then a powder.
I ended up with the Dream Mousse Blush and when I tried it at home I was delighted with the product. I chose the Dolly pink shade which complimented my skin tone and made me look quite girly and cute rather then the bronzer which makes me look a bit old for my age.
There are lots of different shades to choose from that suit almost every skin tone and it costs around £5.86, which I think is very good when you compare it to the quality of the product, however the tub it comes in is quite small.
Because the texture of the blush is like a mousse it is very easy to apply: simply put a little bit on your finger and rub onto your face, once you have applied your foundation/concealer.
You can find this blush in a number of shops including Boots, Tesco and Superdrug.
Overall I would recommend this product and will now only use bronzer if I am going out or something.
I sometimes suffer from shiny skin, especially when I've been out partying, so I thought it was about time that I got something that would help get rid of the shinyness!
When I went to my local supermarket I found my self looking at the make-up section because I needed some new products, mine were getting a bit old. I came across this pressed powder, I read the back of the packaging which stated that it controls shine for up to five hours. At only £3.70, I thought it would be the perfect way to finally combat my shiny forehead.
I put the product into practice, when I was getting ready to go out, I found my self constantly checking the mirror that night for shine and to my surprise there wasn't any, meaning that the pressed powder did what it had promised.
I was very pleased with this pressed powder because I found that it's easy to apply, reasonably priced and most importantly it actually works!!!
This pressed powder comes in a small flat tub with a clear plastic lid. It contains 14g of pressed powder. It has a slight smell to it and it reminds a bit of how soap smells, not too over powering though.
There are a number of shades available, I have fair skin and thought that the peach shade suited me the best but don't worry if you don't know what shade you need because there are often tester's available shops in the shops that sell this product.
Some of the shops that I have seen this product in Include, Asda, Tesco and Superdrung.
Domino's Pizza is a pizza parlour that delivers straight to your door or you can order for collection. Domino's pizza mainly sells pizza's, however they also sell a few other things, like: chicken kickers, deserts and potato wedges.
It's not very often that I have a take away for dinner because I try to follow the Weight watchers discovery plan but today for some reason I have been feeling very lazy and just could not be bothered to cook dinner. So after a chat the boyfriend we decided to order a pizza.
We decided on Domino's because we've ordered from them before and have always enjoyed the food.
I telephoned Domino's and gave them my order: Pepperoni pizza, chicken combo and a personal size cheese and tomato pizza for delivery...... the lady on the phone was quite helpful and she explained to me that if I collected it rather then have it delivered, I could have a deal on it, where I get the pizza buy get one free, meaning I wouldn't need the personal size pizza after all because I would get a free one anyway.
To my surprise the lady told me my pizza would be ready for collection within 10 minutes! I couldn't believe that I would get it so quickly and I also got a deal on it to make it better value for money!
I got my boyfriend to collect it and he was back home within a few minutes, I was really pleased with what we had ordered and everything was very tasty.
There are lots of things to consider when ordering from Dominos because although they mainly sell pizza. They have a large variety and lots choices, for example the base can be: regular, thin crust, Domintor or Double decadence and then it's what size you want small, personal, medium or large.
That's what you've got to think about before you even consider the toppings and you can customise your toppings and have what ever you want really, at a cost that is.
The good thing is that if you can't decide what topping you want, you can have one side of the pizza one topping and the other half something completely different.
I must admit that Domino's isn't the cheapest of take away pizza places in my area and it can be quite expensive.
Extra topping prices start from £1 plus depending on the size of the pizza.
Personal pizza cheese and tomato starts at (7") 3.99, small is (9.5") £6.99, medium (11.5") £8.99 and for a large (13.5") £9.99.
Pleas bear in mind that them prices will differ as you add different toppings and sometimes the base can make a difference on the price to so if you order it's well worth checking prices on their website first. - www.dominos.co.uk
One of the good things is that Dominos often have special meal deals on so its worth checking them out and students also get a 25% discount.
Not only is Dominos expensive it is incredibly unhealthy and I will probably have to do an hour exercise extra everyday this week to burn off the calories I have just consumed.
If you are a bit health conscious but would like to order a pizza any way I would recommend that you order a vegetarian topping, with thin crust and the De-light mozerrella cheese (not alot of calori saving but healthier then a meat feast)
Full nutritional information is available from the website www.dominos.co.uk
Overall the pizza is lovely and the staff are helpful and friendly however not only will costs you a lot but it will expand your waist if your not careful.
I thought I would write a quick review on this Alberto VO5 Silky Smooth Elixer conditioner, as I recently wrote a review about the matching shampoo.
I purchased the conditioner from Wilkos as I had also brought the shampoo there, initially because it was only 97p for a 300ml bottle and thought, I may aswell buy the conditioner to go with it because it's the same price, for the same size bottle.
When I opened the bottle of conditioner,I thought that it smelt a bit similar to the shampoo, not too overpowering but it did remind me of a cleaning product.
The conditioners cosnsitency seemed quite thick when I put it on to the palm of my hand but it wasn't too bad, I cntinued to apply the conditioner to my hair and thought "this is easy to apply" I instantly felt that the conditioner made my hair feel smoother but it did feel a bit heavy on my head.
I left the conditioner on for just under a minute and started rinse it with warm water, I found that it was difficult remove the conditioner with warm water so I was forced to use quite hot water to get it out and it took me quite a while to get it out properly.
When I dried my hair it did look quite shiny and smooth and no visible frizz, however I think this is probably because the conditioner is quite heavy and difficult to was out because after a few hours I looked in the mirror and my hair looked greasy rather then shiny.
Next time I reckon I will put less conditioner onto my hair and see if that makes a difference.
Although I think the shampoo is a bit better then the conditioner, I recommend the conditioner the same as I did with the shampoo, People with fine hair, I wouldn't recommend you use this because it is very heavy and will make your look very greasy.
Still not bad for the price
I saw this Alberto V05 shampoo and I had to purchase it, not because of it's very girly designed bottle but because of the price; it was 97p for a 300ml bottle! Thats a right good bargain! (Wilkinsons).
I wasn't expecting too much from this shampoo, mainly because of how cheap it was, so I prepared myself and was aware that it may not be as good as my regular shampoo.
When I opened the bottle there wasn't a distinct overpowering smell, however it did remind me a bit of some household cleaning products for some reason.
I found that the shampoo's consistency was well balanced, not too runny, not too thick. When I initially applied it to my hair I could feel straight away the moisture of the shampoo, and it did make it feel smooth as promised on the bottle. I found that the shampoo lathered very quickly and I didn't need alot of it because it lathered so well. *(also means it lasts longer)
The shampoo rinsed out very quickly and I must say that it did do what it says on the bottle.
I did find that the shampoo left my hair looking very glossy and smooth initially, however it did feel a bit heavy and I found that the shampoo made it look a bit greasy rather than shiny after a while. Taking this into consideration I would recommend this product only if you have thick hair, if you have very fine hair and put this shampoo on I would imagine that it looks greasy straight away
The shampoo is certainly value for money but bare in mind that prices do change according to which shop you are buying from.
I also know that this particular shampoo has a wide range, for different hair types, including a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner.
Vaseline is great for almost anything, I mainly use it as skin protection and moisturiser.
It normally comes in a small pot but there is also a small tin available that is more for covenience use (20g Lip therapy). As it goes I normally for the larger pot because it works out a bit cheaper, even though I apply it to my lips (It works the same). I pay about £1.50 for 100g and the lip therapy tin costs about £1 for 20g.
I started to use vaseline on my lips regualrly when I complained to my friend about chapped lips and she recommended I try this and since I first tried I use it regularly.
The vaseline (Petrolium jelly) is clear and feels quite greasy on your fingers but when you apply it on your lips it feels quites soft and easy to apply.
Vaseline is available now in most shops basically because it is so versatile and can be used for lots of different things. I have also been known to use vaseline on sun damaged skin and it always leaves it feeling soft and smooth.
I like the fact that vaseline doesn't particularly smell of much.
I highly recommend this product to everyone, not only is it a good beauty treatment but it helps with lots of other things like burns!!
Heanor is a small town in the midlands, set inbetween to major cities, Nottingham and Derbyshire.
Heanor is very small but has some good things in the area. It has a very good bus service, Trent Barton, which regularly to surrounding towns and to Nottigham and Derby.
Heanor has a market square and alongside it there is one road that goes all the way through the town, A608 which leads to Derby and therefore you would probably drive rough rather then spend time there.
There isn't much to do in Heanor but here are some of the things that you can do should you visit the area: there is a leisure centre, which has a sports hall, swimming pool and a gym area.
There is also a relatively small retail park situated across the road from Tesco at the bottom of town, which has a Brithdays store, Select, Peacocks, In-store, Home bargains and an Aldi. There are lots of parkingeas in the town which are all pay and display.
If you walk to where the market square is you will find a number of cafes that are all fairly cheap and there are a number of shops. For females I would recommend visiting the Olive Tree shop, which sells lots of little pretty, girly things and I would also recommend Groovy shoes shop, which is on the market place.
There is an old antiques shop, which is just past the church and holds lots of different types of collectables, so if you're into that sort of thing well worth a look but be aware it isn't very wheel chair friendly and there are a few steep stair cases within this shop.
There is a Friday and Saturday market, however it has been in delcine for several years and it closes very early and there are only a handful stalls there.
Not to far away from the town there is also Shipley Park, which has its own pond and there are plenty to of fields and pathways to walk around. They also have a visitor centre with a cafe and a play area for children. One of the facilities available here is bike hire.
Overall I think it's a fairly quite town, which could do with a bit of renovation. There are lots of pubs which have been closed so the night life isn't very good and there aren't many jobs available either.
This album has been spoken about loads before it was released, probably because Eminem Aka Marshall Mathers had announced his retirement a couple of years ago and now he's changed his mind and released another appropriately named album- Relapse.
The album kicks off with Dr. West (Skit) where Eminem has a conversation with his Doctor, triggering him to change to Marshall Mathers and then to Slim Shady *(Relapse) and then it's on to the next song, 3 a.m. which has a very catchy chorus but the song describes some sort of horrendous massacre.
The next song is My Mom, in this song Eminem dwcribes how his mother is to blame for Eminems drug problems.
There are many more songs on the album I just gave you the above to give you a sample of what's on it. To be honest I felt a bit short changed when I listened to this album, it's not particularly a bad album, however I expected something a bit different. Its no where near as good as his previous albums but it's ok!
No doubt Eminem is very talented and this album show cases it with some of the lyrics, hope you enjoy.

The NUS card (National Union of Students) is a student card for peaople that attend college or university that gives you discounts at certain shops.
The NUS card costs £10 per year and they run out every August, so it's best the at you get it early so you can make the most of your discounts!!
The NUS card entitles you to discounts at a number of places such as Superdrug, most cinemas, amazon, Dorothy Perkins (yay), Newlook, Matalan, Halfards and the list goes on.
I often use my NUS card when I go to the cinema or ice skating because it doesn't take a huge of amount of money off for you but if you save the amount you're saving over a year from discounts, it would be a huge amount.
You can apply an NUS card at www.nus.org.uk/NUS-Extra/. Its dead easy, all you do is fill in an application form, make the £10 payment, upload a photo and they send your NUS card to your learning provider.
The NUS card is also a good form of ID so if you haven't got a passport or driving licence I would recommend you get one, not everywhere would accept it as ID but most places would.
Seven pounds was created by the same crew that created the Pursuit of Happiness. Seven pounds is an incredibly heart renching love story about a man called Ben Thomas (Will Smith), who tries to deal with his guilty conscience. Ben Thomas feels that the only way that he can deal with his guilty conscience is by giving seven deserving strangers a second chance.
Will Smith has a plan to find seven strangers but incidentally, whilst getting to know them he falls in love with one of them, this leaves him emotionally torn he doesn't know whether to continue with his plan or abandon the plan and tell her the truth.
It took me about half an hour to get into the film as the beginning is a little bit confusing because it like skips a scene and then goes back but after a while you get used to it and you get drawn into it very easily.
This film is very different to some of the other movies that he has made such as MIB or independence day, it's incredily emotional and therefore, I would recommend that young people don't watch it. In my opinion this film is definately worth watching, even if you don't particularly like Will Smith.
The acting by Will Smith as the lead role is incredible, he is such a talented actor and no surprise that he was a nominee for 2006 best performance by an actor in a lead role for the Pursuit of Happyness.

Yes man is the latest film starring Jim Carey. The lead in the is film is Jim Carey, who plays a man called Carl Allen.
Carl Allen is a 30 something single man working in a bank and it seems as though he isn't getting anywhere in life because he won't take any of the opportunities or chances that come his way, personally or professionally. Eventually his friends start to get fed up with him always letting them down and giving them rubbish excuses!
Things take a turn in the film and Carl Allen finds him self in a bizzare situation, where he says yes to everything, regardless of how ridiculous it is.
The special features are really worth watching. You get to find out all about the stunts in the film (believe me there are loads) There are also a couple of interviews as you would expect and the editing clips are quite funny too.
I rented this film yesterday from Blockbuster, I thought it was abit steep, with it costing £3.95 for one night but when I watched it I was not disappointed at all and thought it was well worth it!
This film is incredibly funny it shows Jim Carey doing what he does best pulling faces etc., I have not laughed this much for a long time, I really enjoyed it and it is something that you can watch with your family and your friends or even just with your partner.
If you are not a fan of Jim Carey I would not recommend you watch this.

I have seen it in Tesco for around £10
