      worth the investment

      my friends have been raving about GHDs for years, and ive always been more of an argos value kind of girl, but i thought id try out my sisters one night and had to buy a pair of my own. They leave your hair feeling silky smooth and so soft, which is the best part. They do straighten alittle too well, so Id beware if you have thin hair like me, as you end up looking like you have hardly any hair on your head where its so slicked down. They are thin and lightweight, which makes straightening the top and underneath easy and less dangerous lol. The only dopwnside is my style didnt last as long as my cheap straighteners. within a few hours it was back to being wavy. ehther this is the straighteners, or the serum i use before hand i dont know, but worth mentioning. I definately think these are worth the price if you like super slick straight hair, and they last for years too!

      dont buy it.

      i bought this toaster because i liked the fact it had an LED display on the front which shows you how toasted your bread is etc. It turns out this is really the only good bit about it. It doesnt actually fit properly in any of my cupboards because of its shape and size, so its just on the top of my highest cupboard, which is a major pain to get up and down on a dining chair everytime i want a piece of toast. It also gets so hot that ive burnt my fingers on more than one occasions. Certainly cant have the kids around when this is ont he go. It toasts un-evenly, so one side will be almost black while the other is so pale it isnt even toasted. The crumb trays are a useful feature on a toaster, but for some reason crumbs are still always leaking out of mine!! wouldnt pay this price if i were you. not worth it at all!

      great little phone. does everything an iphone does!

      I had this phone for about 6 months. It really is amazing. I mainly bought it because of the small blue facebook button, which enables you to update your status, music and so-on at one touch of this button. I love the fact that it has a qwerty keyboard and also a large touchscreen. I love being able to enlarge something aimply by pinching the screen, the same way it works on an iphone. In fact all round this phone is very similar to an iphone. It runs on android, which means you can download thousands of great apps from the android market. My favourite ones are all free. The internet is very fast, and i watched videos, youtube music, and programmes, all without any skipping. You can automatically match up your social network contacts to your phone book. The camera is amazing. Takes GREAT pictures, and has a flash. The video feature is also good. The ONLy one thing i didnt like about this phoen is the battery life. It needed to be charged every day. Some people say they get more battery life. Perhaps it is because i was always texting and using apps.

      great product.

      My mum has recently bought this freezer for her new house, and its brilliant. The drawers are a great size, and fit in a deceptively large amount of goods. I would say there's plenty of space for a months shopping for a normal size family. This freezer freezes things, I.e ice cream or ice cubes really quickly. And it also defrosts quickly, which means it doesn't take days to defrost, clean, and re-freeze your freezer. I personally find indesit the best brand for kitchen appliances. Always come with a very simple instruction manual, and a great guarantee for peace of mind. I haven't had any problems with indesit appliances, and my mum hasn't had any issues with this freezer, with malfunctions or problems. There is a useful helpline number you can call if you should have trouble with it for any reason. But as it is pretty much plug-in-and-go, you certainly shouldn't have any trouble 'setting it up'.

      great blackberry!! love it!!

      I recently upgraded to this phone from an old curve, and I love love love it! It looks very similar to the 9300 and the 8520, but its faster, more efficient, and more updated. The text messages come up in colour conversation form, unlike the 8520, which makes texting MUCH better. Of course it has blackberry app world, where you can download hundreds off free apps. I love having blackberry messenger, which is even more convenient than a text if that's possible! Perfect communication phone for those who love to be on their mobile and always in touvh. Emails come through instantly which saves you having to go online and check. The only downside is the camera. It is good enough to take snaps and video things once in a while, but it certainly doesn't compare to the good quality plus flash of an iphone or an htc. However, that really is the only downside, so if you're not too bothered about pics and videos, it really is a perfect phone!

        don't bother.

        I am so unimpressed with this little laptop. I know it is a notebook and therefore not likely to have all the features of a full blown computer. But the processing speed is a joke in my opinion. The only thing this is useful for is typing up documents on microsoft word, and even that is a challenge on the low quality and tiny screen. I have given up using the internet, as it just takes forever to change page. Not worth the frustration. The only one good thing about this laptop is that it runs on linux, and has inbuilt icons for everything, which makes it extra simple for computer novices or children. Would only recommend this to someone who wants to use it for simply emailing and so-on, or for someone who is looking to buy their child a first computer. (It does have many useful tools and features for young ones)

        great full size notebook

        I needed a new laptop for work when my mini notebook dies on me, and being on a budget I found Acer to be the best value brand. This laptop has a great quality 15.6 inch screen. It was easy to set up with step-by-step instructions, and my wireless broadband was up and running within minutes. It doesn't pause and freeze all the time like my old laptop. Its quick and effective! I bought a carry-case to go with it, and it was still lightweight to carry. It does everything I need a computer to do, and takes the wear and tear of general travelling and office work. It has an in-built webcam so I am able to talk to family in spain easily. It also plays dvds from my large collection :) all in all I would definately recommend this notebook. Its a great product at a reasonable price. Especially great if you're looking for a work laptop.

          well worth the price.

          I've always wanted a flatscreen tv as my old chunky model was far out of date and not enjoyable in the least. This samsung model certainly didn't disappoint me! As soon as I got it out of the box I thought I may have problems, as I'm a single woman and not great with electronics and DIY, but it was actually suprisongly easy to put together and get set up. The picture quality is absolutely fantastic! And although it isn't by far the biggest screen, its perfectly good enough to watch my favourite programmes on. The best part about this television is that I can plug in my external usb with all my dvds that I've saved from the computer which is really really convenient. They're much more enjoyable to watch on this than my mini laptop! Using the tv itself is simple and enjoyable, and I would definately recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade to a modern LED!

          definately worth the money

          Radox muscle soak is one of radox's many bubble bath mixtures. I adore bathtime, and after a long day at work not only is it necessary to feel clean its also nice to have abit of relaxation time! This particular bubble bath smells delicious. It doesn't have a particularly girly scent, and reminds me alittle bit of mens bodyspray, but in a good way. It foams up nicely, meaning its great for everyday use, to create a lot of bubbles without having to use half the bottle! And it does do what it says on the tin. Soaks your muscles. Although whether that's more down to the effect of hot water I don't know. It comes in a nice looking bottle, so doesn't need to be hidden anywhere if you have a posh bathroom like I do. Certainly worth buying for the inexpensive price tag. I would recommend to all waterbabies and bath lovers.
