Kerastase Resistance Ciment Thermique 17/11/2017

Fantastic Treatment For My Locks

Kerastase Resistance Ciment Thermique I had a massive meltdown with my hair this year. I had nano ring extensions put in but the hair was awful and ended up making me look like Smeagol in the end because it was of bad quality. I went to a hairdressers and they offered to give me new extensions if I allowed a trainee to put them in. Result for me! Everyone has to learn from some stage. However, she didn't have any time that day to put the new ones in and said she would take the nano rings out that day so save time. Unfortunately as well, she didn't have an appointment to dye my hair because having extensions means you cannot get all your roots so I was left with platinum blonde hair with almost black roots. I was going out that night and didn't want to look awful so I decided to bleach my hair at home. Normally I always get this right but I was in a rush and bleaching and using silver shampoo and conditioner on my hair didn't work out as well as it usually did because my hair ended up turning purple! I was distraught! I managed to tie my hair up and avoid the purple showing but I couldn't go into work with purple hair. Sunday morning came and I called Rush hairdressers and almost begged them to redo my hair, explaining my situation. Luckily, they was able to fit me in and they sorted my hair out perfectly! They put a conditioning treatment in my hair which I adored! Kerastase Resistance Ciment Thermique (KRCT) and for me, a leave in hair treatment is key for hair maintenance so I bought some for ...

Joop Miss Wild Eau de Parfum 16/11/2017

A Lovely Gift From Uncle & Auntie

Joop Miss Wild Eau de Parfum My 25 birthday went down with me drinking far to much rum and not actually remembering when people left. So when it came to clearing up I noticed that I had stored all my presents behind the bar. I was delighted when I realised this and took everything upstairs to put away. I came across the bag my auntie and uncle got me and notice they had got me Joop! Miss Wild. I can always count on my Auntie and Uncle to buy me some nice perfume or PJs for celebratory occasions. This perfume has now become my work perfume so as I am currently looking at it and clearly not doing any work, I'll try a review on it. Joop Joop is a Germany company primarily dealing in the fashion and cosmetics section. It was founded in 1986 by Wolfgang Joop who had been selling designer clothing since 1981. He wanted to distinguish himself and so put an exclamation mark on the brand "JOOP". Although morw known for their fragrance brands, Joop sells contemporary clothing for women and men under "Joop! Collection" and "Joop! Casual" as well as jewellery and watches and even a home living sector. The Packaging The perfume is contains in a pink rectangular shaped bottle with a silver lid covering the spritz applicator. The JOOP! logo is centered at the top of the bottle with the perfume name located in the middle. Written in silver the "MISS WILD" logo is created in two different fonts. I think this gives it a bit of an edge. The "MISS" is written in pretty elegant front whereas the "WILD" is written in ...

Cult of Chucky (DVD) 15/11/2017

A Step Down In The Franchise

Cult of Chucky (DVD) When I was little, Chucky would frighten me to the point of not sleeping but as I grew older I began to enjoy the little B-word and soon grew to love him. When Curse of Chucky came out and I felt relived that Chucky was back to his old tricks again. Not funny and jokey but scary and terrifying and I was even more excited when rumors went round the mill that another film was being released. So when the release DVD was set I was preparing myself for the arrival of Chucky. My family didn't want to watch it downstairs so I ran up to my room, got in my PJs, opened up a bag of sweet and salty popcorn, tucked myself in and began the journey. A disappointing journey to be honest. May be spoilers in the "story" part of the review. Crew Director: Don Mancini (Child's Play franchise) Producer: David Kirschner (An American Tail) & Ogden Gavanski Writer: Don Mancini Music: Joseph LoDuca (The Evil Dead) Cinematography: Michael Marshall Editor: Randy Bricker Cast Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce (Curse of Chucky) Michael Therriault as Dr. Foley (Reign) Adam Hurtig as Multiple Malcolm Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay (Child's Play franchise) Elisabeth Rosen as Madeleine (The ABCs of Death) Grace Lynn Kung as Claire (Miss Sloane) Marina Stephenson Kerr as Angela Zak Santiago as Nurse Carlos (The Tortured) Ali Tataryn as Nurse Ashley Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine (Family Guy) Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky (One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest) Summer H.

A Nightmare On Elm Street (Box Set) (DVD) 13/11/2017

1, 2 Freddy's Come For You... In A Box Set

A Nightmare On Elm Street (Box Set) (DVD) I remember when I first watched Freddy Krueger. I was lucky enough that when I was younger I had a TV in my room but this was during the days when you could only get the five channels. Late at night when I probably should have been sleeping, I was flipping through the five channels and came across screaming and bloodshed. Clearly I was fascinated by this and stayed on the channel and that was when I first met Mr. Krueger. I was amazed by this character and sooner or later, I managed to watch more and more. I was Grandad's little princess and I begged him to buy me the box set when I saw it in HMV. He probably didn't know what it was so he bought it for me, no questions asked. Thanks Granddad! With all seven movies to watch, I had my nights fulfilled. Please note that I will be going through the entire franchise and therefore there may be spoilers of who lives and who dies. The Box Set The box set is the Ultimate Collector's Edition. It features a scary looking Robert Englund on the front as Freddy Kruger and a short description on the back of the box set explaining what DVDs are contained in the box set together with chapters, duration, subtitles and screen size. The box set is like a sleeve so all the DVDs are contained inside the sleeve. The sleeve is easy enough to get out with a little wiggle. The DVD are in a flip case. The presentation of the DVDs are nice and all the DVDs have the same look and style. They are all in order as well. Inside there is a booklet ...

Microgynon 30 Contraceptive Pill 11/11/2017

No Bubbas For Me

Microgynon 30 Contraceptive Pill My periods were always strange when I was younger. One month it would be weak, then I wouldn't come on for months, then it would be very heavy, then I would have another period a few weeks later etc. It was an absolute nightmare for me when I first started my periods. After a while, I was getting sick and tired of it. Being in school, and having girls talking about their contraception, one friend I was talking to spoke about her going on the pill to sort her periods out. I can't really remember having a sex education in school where we spoke about options girls had so hearing this was great for me. I went to my GP and spoke about my issues and she said that going on the pill would not only protect me against pregnancy but would also make my periods more normal. So originally, my going on the pill was for me to sort out my periods rather than ensuring that I wasn't eating for two at 15. What is Microgynon 30 It is a daily combined hormonal contraceptive pill. Ingredients 150 micrograms of the progestogen levonorgestrel 30 micrograms of the oestrogen ethinylestradiol How To Take You will need to go to your GP and ask to go on the contraceptive pill. You may not be given Microgynon 30 but it is an option. Your doctor should take your blood pressure and you will be asked a series of questions to ensure that you are able to take the pill. These will include whether anyone in your family has had breast cancer, whether you are pregnant, any issues with heart disease etc. ...

Misfits - Series 1 - Complete (DVD) 10/11/2017

Fantastic Start To The Misfits Series

Misfits - Series 1 - Complete (DVD) I watched this when it first came out in 2009 and I loved it. Sitting around at lunch at work wondering what to do with my hour of freedom, I decided that I would spend my time re-watching the first series... And so I did. Obviously not all in one day, not sure how work would feel about that. Information Genre: Action, Black Comedy, Drama, Sci-Fi & Supernatural Created: Howard Overman (Hotel Babylon) Writers Howard Overman, Jon Brown & Mike O'Leary Creative Director: Mollie Sian Smith Executive Producers: Howard Overman, Murray Ferguson, Matt Jarvis & Petra Fried Producers: Kate Crowe, Matt Strevens & Nick Pitt Production Company: Clerkenwell Films Network: E4 Released: 2009 Episodes: 6 Opening Theme: "Echoes" by The Rapture Composer: Vince Pope Country: UK Language: English Characters Curtis Donovan - Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Utopia) Simon Bellamy - Iwan Rhoen (Game of Thrones) Kelly Bailey - Lauren Socha (The Unloved) Alisha Daniels - Antonia Thomas (Lovesick) Nathan Young - Robert Sheehan (Killing Bono) Sally - Alex Reid (The Descent) Pete - Michael Obiora (Grange Hill) Tony Morecombe - Danny Sapani (The Oxford Murders) Louise Young - Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones) Mike Young - Dexter Fletcher (Hotel Babylon) Gary - Josef Altin (Game of Thrones) Rachel - Jessica Brown Findlay (Victor Frankenstein) Plot We start off the series following five people who are doing community service for different reasons.

Star Trek Beyond (DVD) 08/11/2017

Star Trek Boooooooring

Star Trek Beyond (DVD) Don't get me wrong, I know of Star Trek but I didn't know it in great detail. I'm not a Trekkie that can speak Klingon (anyone realise that Trekkie and Klingon automatically capitalise on Word?). Not that I thought the show was bad but space films and tv shows aren't something that I immediately jump on. So, I went round a friend's house and we were deciding what to watch. He asked me if I had ever watched Star Trek to which I replied "no, not really something that interests me". I think he was kind of shocked because I turned to my side and suddenly saw an array of Star Trek videos. Damn! I just insulted a fan... So in light of the discovery of my virginity to Star Trek, he decided that we should watch the new Star Trek movie. At first, I wasn't particularly interested but seeing as his horror collection was not of high quantity, what did I have to lose? I must admit that I adored the first movie and said afterwards that we needed to watch the episodes at some point. Next movie night was the second film and after that I saw Star Trek Beyond in Tesco, purchased it and sent him the picture to confirm the next movie night feature. We didn't have another movie night for months after and as much as I was desperate to watch Beyond, I felt that it would be a betrayal, even going as far as to sit upstairs when the family was watching it on Sky. True friendship right there! Finally! We managed to watch it including the special features (because I'm kind of a nerd like that). However, ...

Auschwitz - The Nazis And The Final Solution (DVD) 07/11/2017

A Detailed Look Into The Life

Auschwitz - The Nazis And The Final Solution (DVD) I've always been really keen on history; I love learning about history. Our world set in a different time, what life was like back then, the things that happen and I think it is amazing that buildings and the like that were built so many years ago are still around today for us to go to and visit. Want to take me on a good date? Take me somewhere that has a history to it, some substance about it, something that is interesting. So, as my love for history remains I'm always interested to learn new things about it. Even subjects that I already know about. World War II for instance. I know the basics of what happens during WWII but I am always intrigued to keep learning about it, even things that I have already gone over. It's a time period that has so much going on, I think there is always something new to learn about it. So, as my Netflix journey continues, I came across this BBC program. I hadn't seen it shown on the BBC and the history of Auschwitz has been a subject that I have always been interested in learning more about. Obviously I learnt about it in school but there was so much to cover for GCSE, that we didn't stay too long on a subject. So when this documentary came up, I decided to dedicate my time into watching it. Information Genre: Documentary Year: 2005 Episodes: 6 Narrator: Samuel West Language: English Network: BBC Episodes 1. Surprising Beginnings 2. Orders & Initiatives 3. Factories of Death 4. Corruption 5. Frenzied Killing 6. Liberation & ...

Space Jam (DVD) 06/11/2017

Welcome To The Space Jam

Space Jam (DVD) I cannot remember when I first watched Space Jam but it has been one of those movies that I can always sit and watch if it is on and it still makes me giggle today; even at the ripe age of 25. I've watched it countless times and still, I never switch it off or turn to another channel. You can't do that to Bugs!

Emelie (DVD) 05/11/2017

Actually A Good Film

Emelie (DVD) Another tick off the horror list for me is the 2015 horror movie Emelie. I passed it a few times whilst searching through the channels but from seeing the summary, it didn't strike me immediately to think that this is a must watch for a horror fan such as myself. As Sky Movies, I feel, doesn't give us a wide range of horror movies and with me watching most of them already, Emelie was going to be one of those films that I watched purely for the sake of watching it. Alas, I was wrong. I actually found that I really enjoyed this movie. Sometimes, looks and description can be deceiving. Crew Director: Michael Thelin Producer: Andrew Corkin Screenplay: Richard Raymond Harry Herbeck & Michael Thelin Story: Richard Raymond Harry Herbeck & Michael Thelin Music: Phil Mossman Cinematography: Luca Del Puppo Editor: Eric Nagy Additional Information Certificate: 15 Genre: Horror Production Companies: Uncorked Productions, Sandbar Pictures & Abandon Features Distributor: Dark Sky Films Released: April 015 (Tribeca Film Festival) & March 2016 (US) Running Time: 80 minutes Language: English Country: US Tagline: "I'm the new babysitter" Cast Sarah Bolger as Emelie (The Tudors) Joshua Rush as Jacob (The Lion Guard) Carly Adams as Sally Thomas Bair as Christopher Susan Pourfar as Joyce Thompson Chris Beetem as Dan (Black Hawk Down) Carl Bailey as Officer Morton Annette Christian as Howie's mom Dante Hoagland as Howie Elizabeth Jayne as Maggie Randi Langdon as ...

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Eau de Toilette Gift Set 04/11/2017

Daisy Daisy

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Eau de Toilette Gift Set I will be totally honest with you and admit that I cannot for the life of me remember when I bought this product. I want to say I bought it during the Boxing Day sales but do not quote me on that. Anyways, I have this product, and now I am going to review it for you. Marc Jacobs Marc Jacobs is an American fashion designer born in 1963.

The Box Set The box set that I got was different to that in the Ciao picture as my box set was in a simply light blye block colour. Not that I will rate it down because of that but considering that the picture looks quite well designed for the "daisy dream" ...

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Classique Body Lotion 02/11/2017

It Came With The Box & Stayed In The Draw

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Classique Body Lotion I love Jean Paul Gaultier perfume, but only the classic. I do like the other fragrances but the classic is the one for me. A sophisticated, adult perfume that I use purely for special occasions, like if someone ever decides they want to take this fruit cake out for dinner and a show. I ran out of JPG and when I saw it as a box set in the Duty Free at the airport, I snatched it up quickly so my stock was replenished. JPG Jean Paul Gaultier (for this review JPG) is a French haute couture and fashion designer born in 1952. He became sketching drawings and sending them to fashion designers and was spotted by Pierre Cardin who hired him as an assistant after noticing his talent. He released his first collection in 1976 and they weren't very well received; being called the "enfant terrible" of French fashion at the time. However, his clothing was based on"street wear" and was considered formal but playful and unusual at the time. Jean Paul Gaultier caused controversy when he used models in his shows that were older, full-figured and heavily tattooed and pierced. He hosted "Eurotrash" with Antoine de Caunes until 1997. You may know Eurotrash as having Lolo Ferrari in it, the pornographic actress having the extremely massive boobs. Jean Paul Gaultier was the creative director of Hermes, another French high fashion goods manufacturer from 2003 to 2010. He designed couture and ready-to-wear clothing but in 2015 he announced that he would be closing his ready-to-wear lines and ...

Don't Knock Twice (DVD) 31/10/2017

Don't Knock At All Rather...

Don't Knock Twice (DVD) I've pretty much exhausted most of the horror movies on Netflix and on Sky, so movies that I would normally skip and I feel they are more than likely B movies are being viewed by myself just because. Don't Knock Twice was on of those movies that I skipped countless times before realising that I should go get a hobby rather than Netflix and chilling by myself. So Don't Knock Twice has been watched and shall now be reviewed... Crew Director: Caradog W.

Do you still celebrate Halloween? 30/10/2017

#HorrorGirlForLife

Do you still celebrate Halloween? I'm not sure where I gained my love for horror films. My mother has always had an odd taste in things such as skulls and the weird and wonderful but she was never one for horror films. None of my family were. So it is rather odd that out of the entire family, I am the one that picks the fascination with horror. I think it might have started when my parents bought me The Nightmare Before Christmas when I was little. Before we had a DVD player and I had to watch it on the computer. Every single day I watched that movie for months. Wow! I feel old! I was taken aback by the weirdness of Tim Burton and thrown into the world of horror to which I acquired a taste for. That's probably where my love for it came from so you can imagine how much I love Halloween. Halloween Halloween is celebrated on 31 October of each year. It is also known as Hallowe'en, All Hallow's Eve, All Saint's Eve and Allhalloween. It is celebrated in many cultures and countries and is viewed in different ways. Some consider Halloween a devil's year of evil and therefore do not believe in the day whereas other consider it a day to remember the dead and celebrate the after life. It is believed that Halloween originated from Celtic harvest festivals and is considered a pagan holiday. It is considered a "commercial holiday" these days rather than anything spiritual. Lots of events take place during this time such as trick or treating, watching horror movies, bonfires, pranking people, apply bobbing and making ...
