Live from Nowhere in Particular (Live Recording) - Joe Bonamassa 15/09/2014

For fans of blues-rock everywhere.

Live from Nowhere in Particular (Live Recording) - Joe Bonamassa Around eighteen months ago, a good friend of mine who knows how much I like blues-rock music, introduced me to Joe Bonamassa. Although I had heard of him, I had never really taken notice up until this point. Thanks to my friend's recommendation, I listened to and watched a You Tube clip of Joe performing a cover of Sam Brown's 'Stop' and I was completely blown away. I played it again and then again, before going off to hunt down more of this man's work and by the end of the day I was a fan! Joe Bonamassa Joe Bonamassa was born in 1977 in New York. His parents owned a guitar shop and so his interest in guitars began at an early age. Joe received his first guitar when aged four, and soon guitars became his world, as he spent hours and hours practicing. His efforts paid off as by the time he was ten, he had came to the attention of the legendary B.B. King who thought Joe's potential was unbelievable and invited him up on stage to play. By the age of twelve, Joe was actually opening shows for B.B. King! Joe is also heavily influenced by guitar greats such as the late Gary Moore, Rory Gallagher and Eric Clapton, the latter of which joined Joe on stage for a song at his show at the Royal Albert Hall a couple of years back. Indeed Joe has became widely respected amongst his peers and one of his great honours was being handed Rory Gallagher's 1961 Stratocaster guitar to play on stage for a few numbers at his London Hammersmith Apollo show, by Rory's brother and son. A dream come ...

Avon Glimmerstick Eye Liner 26/08/2014

Great quality at a low price.

Avon Glimmerstick Eye Liner For a few years now, Avon's Glimmersticks Eyeliners have been my first choice when using an eyeliner on my lower lids. I also use eyeliner on my top lids, but prefer to use a liquid eyeliner for this. It's quite strange really as I can't seem to find an eyeliner suitable for both my upper and lower lids, but am quite happy with my liquid eyeliner for the top and this Avon Glimmerstick for the lower lids. Avon have had this product available for a number of years now and always seems very popular and often features in lower-priced offers in the Avon catalogue, which is when I usually buy mine. If I need to buy one and it isn't on offer or if I do not know anyone who is an Avon Representative, then I turn to Ebay where you can usually pick these Glimmersticks up for around £3 from sellers including p&p. Generally speaking I never pay more than £3 for a Glimmerstick Eyeliner, but the usual full price seems to be around £6. These Glimmerstick eyeliners are reatractable in that they twist up and back again so no product is wasted nor does the end snap off. I find them really smooth and easy to use on my lower lids. The nib is a little like many other pen-type eyeliners, but I find these go on much easier and believe me I have tried a fair few! There is also the added bonus that you don't need to sharpen them! I have never used a pencil or kohl type eyeliner since first using these Glimmersticks and I would be fairly upset if Avon ever discontinued them. The Glimmersticks come ...

Maybelline Superstay 24HR Foundation 09/08/2014

Lives up to its promises!

Maybelline Superstay 24HR Foundation I have always had combination skin on my face, but as I have got older I have found the dry patches are increasing, although I am still prone to some oily parts around my T-zone. My skin also feels more sensitive than it used to and can feel sore with redness or blemishes appearing, particularly in the winter months. I find using a good moisturiser daily helps a lot and combats any dryness or tightening of my skin that I would experience if I didn't use it, but I have also used concealers and foundation for many years now too. Until recently, my foundation of choice was Maybelline's Dream Matt Mousse foundation, which gave me decent results at a price that would not break the bank. Indeed I have sampled one or two powders and foundations from high end brands which have given good results, but I simply cannot afford to be spending a lot of money on cosmetics. I have also tried one or two cheaper brands too, as I am well aware there are some decent products around at the lower-priced end of the market. For example I swear my Collection 2000 fastroke liquid eyeliner, but when it comes to foundation I have found the cheaper brands have not been any good for my skin, nor gave the results I am looking for. Therefore I have been quite happy to part with around £7-£8 for a pot of Dream Matt Mousse foundation most of the time, until recently when I noticed it no longer seemed to be working as well for me. This could be due to changes to the product, but I felt my skin's dryness was ...

Yankee Candle Wax Tarts Fruit A Licious Gift Set 04/08/2014

A gorgeous gift for tart lovers!

Yankee Candle Wax Tarts Fruit A Licious Gift Set I often wax lyrical (excuse the pun!) about my love of Yankee Candles, in particular their wax tarts which I buy all year round and also love receiving as gifts. Unfortunately many of the shops and stores which stocked Yankee Candles have either closed down in my area or stopped selling Yankee wax tarts. Take Clintons for instance, whilst they still stock a large range of Yankee Candles, they appear to have stopped stocking the wax tarts in their stores. Because of this I have had to resort to buying most of my wax tart purchases online these days. A few weeks back however, whilst shopping into town I popped into Clintons in the vague hope that maybe they would have some wax tarts. Whilst they didn't have any to buy individually, they did have two different gift sets containing nine various wax tarts, priced at £9.99. I would not have normally been buying as many as nine wax tarts had they sold them individually, but bearing in mind this was my only opportunity to buy some wax tarts in store and also the fact that by buying the set it actually worked out cheaper than buying the nine individually, I decided to purchase a set. You can expect to pay around £1.35 - £1.45 per wax tart, so £9.99 for nine wax tarts does offer a saving on the individual price. There were two sets to choose from and I opted for the Fruit-A-Licious set which contains nine fruity fragranced wax tarts. As I generally love all the fruity scented fragrances from Yankee, I was confident I would like all ...

Before We Met - Lucie Whitehouse 23/07/2014

The most dangerous lies are those closest to home...

Before We Met - Lucie Whitehouse A whirlwind romance... a perfect marriage... Hannah Reilly has seized her chance at happiness. Until the day her husband doesn’t come home ... Hannah had always been determined not to follow in the footsteps of her bitterly divorced mother, by being independent, headstrong and avoiding commitment. But then one New York summer whilst visiting friends, she meets fellow Brit Mark Reilly. Despite everything, Hannah finds herself swept up in a love affair that changes all her ideas about what marriage might mean. After getting married and living in their elegant, expensive London townhouse, as well as being adored by her fantastically successful husband, she knows she was right to let down her guard and take a chance on happy ever after. But when Mark does not return from a business trip to the States, the foundations of Hannah’s certainty begins to crack. Why do Mark's colleagues believe he has gone to Paris not America? Why is there no record of him at his hotel? And who is the mysterious woman who has been telephoning him over the last few weeks? As Hannah begins to dig into her husband’s life, uncovering revelations that throw into doubt everything she has ever believed about him and her investigation leads her away from their fairytale romance into a place of violence and fear, she must decide whether the secrets Mark has been keeping are designed to protect him, or protect her … Can you ever really know what happened before you met? I am not a stranger to the author ...
