St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse 02/05/2010

Tan the safe way with St Moriz!

St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse Advantages: lush colour...... Disadvantages: Not as readily available as other brands but loads in my local B&M Bargains yipppeeee!! I found this in my local B&M's for £2.99 and I was a bit weary at first because I have had many tanning disasters!!! This gives you a fab colour and it rivals that of the spray tan places which can cost you £15+ a pop. This looks very much like the St Tropez brand and in my opinion is definately on par with them!!! If it's your first time using it I would recommend you do it the night before so you give it plenty of time to work. When you have a good base to work with and want to keep your tan topped up, it's fine to slap a bit on in the morning and wash it off after a couple of hours. Keep in mind this stuff will stain!! I have bought loads and loads of black towels which I use when tanning, saves buying new light coloured ones all the time lol! I would recommend wearing gloves as it will stain the palms of your hands, and even when using a mitt wear a glove underneath!! I love the golden colour this product leaves you with and the ease of application is great. Simply pump out mousse onto your hand, or lazily directly onto your arm/leg/etc.... and give it a good rub untill you see no more streaks, it does dry quickly though so be a fast tanner!! As the product is tinted you can see where you have put it and not worry about any patches you have missed as you will be able to see them before you finish. Don't worry ...

Channel 4 - Desperate Housewives 01/02/2010

Whats the latest on Wisteria Lane???

Channel 4 - Desperate Housewives Advantages: Great show ~~~~ See review x Disadvantages: None the show works extremely well even with the changing of a few characters. It takes nothing away I would so love to live on Wisteria Lane........ For those who do not yet know what this programme is all about and have never seen an episode..... WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN???? lol. Set on the beautiful fictional Wisteria Lane, in fictional Fairview, America, this is a dark comedy series which I think is currently in is 6th, maybe even 7th series. The show is set around the lives of 4/5 main characters. You have Susan, Lynette, Bree, Gabrielle and whereas before there was Edie, we now see a lot more of Katherine. Edie was tragically killed off in the 5th series after discovering a few truths about her new hubby. Lynette is married, and has a brood of kids, before children came along she had a great career in advertising but gave it all up. We have seen her bravely battle breast cancer and win. Susan has had a few boyfriends through the show but has happily re-married Mike, with whom she has a young son by. She also has an older daughter. Susan is probably the dippiest character in the show, but she can be rather fiesty too! Bree is a snob!!! She is currently having an affair with Susans ex-husband, as her husband Orson is blackmailing her into staying with him. She seems a bit dull at first, what with her 'hostess with the mostess' appearence, but beneath it all lies a troubled lady. She has 2 ...

Asda (Shop) 26/10/2009

Top of the shops.............

Asda (Shop) Advantages: Loads of stuff available, good prices Disadvantages: can get busy at christmas time so much so people abandon their shopping I am a huge Asda fan, it's where I do most of my shopping and I know where everything is which makes it easier when dragging 3 kiddies along with you! In my local Asda we have a photo centre, cafe, George, electricals, homewear, toys, bakery, pizzaria, rottisary (chicken place lol), fresh meats counter and all the usual foody aisles plus we have a petrol station, cash machines and bus stop. It's the largest shopping store we have although we do have a Tesco, Lidl, Aldi, Co-Op, Farm Foods and Iceland. I have never had a bad experience with Asda and the stock is usually replenished quite quickly! They have such a huge range that I know I can do my weekly shop and more there. Everything in Asda is fairly priced in my opinion and the Asda own brand food tastes as good as the more expensive brands. I do occasionly buy Smart Price items too, especially the frozen veg and yorkshire as these are much cheaper than the leading brands but taste just as good. Even if I fancy a change and shop elsewhere I will still pop into Asda to pick up a few bit's generally because I know they are cheaper in Asda. You can save for christmas on an Asda savings card which I think is an excellent idea, better than the stamps in Tesco simply because the Asda card is simply just that a credit card sized card that can be kept in your purse at all ...

Muller Little Star Fromage Frais 26/10/2009

Great for kids...................

Muller Little Star Fromage Frais Advantages: tasty, good for weaning Disadvantages: none that I can think of! I purchased these in tesco this week at £2 for 18 pots of fromage frais, but they were on offer. After checking the Asda website the prices are as follows ~ £2.94 for 18 pots or £1.48 for 6 pots. As I mentioned that is the prices for Asda, I'm sure they are still on offer in Tesco but you will have to check that for yourself :o). I bought these mainly because of the offer as my little boy loves yoghurts and the such. The older 2 don't get a look in lol! They are lucky if they get 1 each out of the pack!! The pack I had contains 3 different flavours ~ Peach, Raspberry and Strawberry. They have 100% natural ingredients so that's a great thing to consider when buying them. I remember buying these when my little one had just started on solid foods and they go down a treat! I will give the nutritional information for each 60g pot ~~~~~ Energy 272 KJ / 65 Kcal Protein 2.9g Carbohydrate 7.4g of which sugars 7.0g Fat 2.4g of which saturates 1.4g Fibre 0.1g Sodium 0.1g Calcium 98mg Each pot contains 12% of RDA of calcium. Also the pack I bought has an offer for free Peppa Pig books worth £3.99 each, you have to collect 4 tokens and the token on the pack I have is worth 2. Summary: Great little pots of yumminess

Bisto Gravy Granules 26/10/2009

Not homemade but I like it!

Bisto Gravy Granules Advantages: easy to make, tastes good Disadvantages: it's not homemade What with being on a diet this gravy is great! It come's in a red cylinder shaped tube with a foil lid and a plasic lid. It has the aah! Bisto logo on the front and is very recognisable on the shelf. In Asda it costs 98p for a 170g pot and £1.78 for a 360g pot. Evn though you can't beat the taste of real homemade gravy Bisto is quite tasty. It's a dark brown colour, darker than the gravy I make, but it tastes pretty good. You can make it as thick or as thin as you like just by adding less or more water. I never used to buy gravy granules as we only had gravy with our Sunday lunch and that was always homemade. But since starting the Slimming World diet this has been a godsend. If you don't know how S.W works they have original days and green days where you either eat meats mostly or veg etc. Well I quite like the green days and usually eat quorn sausages as they are 'free', mash again 'free' and then I use 1/2 a sin for Bisto! As I have found eating like this and usin up my 'free' foods with little syn value items to go with it I am loosing weight! Nutritional Information ~~~ Typical values Per 50ml serving as instructions Per 100g dry weight as sold Energy 63kJ 1672kJ 15kcal 398kcal Protein 0.1g 2.2g Carbohydrate 2.3g 60.7g of which sugars 0.5g 14.6g Fat 0.6g 16.3g of which saturates 0.4g 11.2g Fibre Trace 1.3g Sodium 0.21g 5.56g Overall I find Bisto a ...

Slimming World 26/10/2009

I must, I will loose weight!!!!!!

Slimming World Advantages: friendly atmosphere, more likely to stick at it, good range of foods to eat Disadvantages: the fact you have to get weighed by another person but you get used to this As a member of Slimming World I must say I would recommend it to anyone who feels they need to loose a bit of weight. Slimming World works on an Original and Green basis. On Original days the focus is on meat products with them being your free foods that you can eat as much of these foods as you like. You then add your healthy extras such as milk, cheese etc. On green days the focus is on pasta's, vegetables and the such so you fill your plate with as much 'green' food as you want. There are foods that are Free on both Original and Green Plans, but you do get 'Syns' I think you get 15 a day but I rarely need more than 5 :o) It will cost you £10 to join but I think there is a half price promotion on at the moment so it will cost you £5, and then there's a weekly fee of £4.50. You get given a little pack which contains a few books. The main one being all about the plans mentioned above and your weight managment section in the middle. The other books tell you about a new plan called Extra Easy but the focus is still mainly on the above 2. I can't comment on the Extra Easy as I have yet to try it, but when I do I will let you know. I tend to stick mainly to the Green plan as I find this works best for me. I lost 6lb in my first week and then 1-2lbs a week after that ...

ebay.co.uk 26/10/2009

Possibly the best auction site ever???

ebay.co.uk Advantages: easy to access, great way to make a bit of money Disadvantages: items may not be what they seem Is it just me or do things seem to have gone a lot more expensive on ebay??? I was recently bidding on an Adidas tracksuit for myself.....for the gym, cos I'm on a diet ya know!! lol Well anyways, the bidding went up to about £16.50 and the with about 15 hours or so to go the seller withdrew it from sale!! It was listed for with a starting bid of just 99p so if your not gonna be happy with £16.50 why not use the buy it now feature???? I would have been well happy with £16.50, seeing as I bought a brand new one last month for just £20!! Back to the review...... I think with the credit crunch more people are using ebay as a way of earning themselves a bit of cash...nothing wrong with that, but my how the prices have changed since I was using it about 3 years ago. You can still pick up some great bargains though and it is a fab way to sell things. There's also a 'community' on the ebay discussion boards which has a few help boards and 9 chat boards, on the chat boards you can have a real good laugh as some of the things people post are great! It's easy to sign up to ebay and it's definatly worth doing so. You sometimes have to be careful when buying moore expensive items such as games consoles, mobile phones and tellys, as they can be scams, by which I mean there is no item but you don't find out untill it's too late :o(, things are a lot ...

Matalan (Shop) 26/10/2009

nearly everything you need under one roof.........

Matalan (Shop) Advantages: Good quality stuff, great prices, you can pick up key pieces of clothing for next to nowt! Disadvantages: You need your Matalan card Matalan ~~~~~~ Womens department ~~ I would highly recommened matalan for womens clothes as they seem to have a high range of great quality clothes for bargain prices. I picked up a lurvly red jacket in there last week reduced from £20 to just £5, but I would have definatly paid the £20 for it :o) They have clothes for older women like my nans age, such as skirts and pretty but not overly trendy tops. And they do suits and other office type clothes. But seeing as I'm 24 I will go more into depth about the fashionable range for my kinda age...... The clothes this season are very on trend, skinny jeans, leggings, jeggings, long tops, cool t-shirts, they have it all and they have some fab shoes....I lurveee all shoes lol!! They also do underwear which is pretty good as I can never seem to find my size but in here the bra's seem to fit really well. And they do great PJ's. The sizes for the womens clothes are pretty much spot on in my opinion, I buy a 14 in bottoms and a 12 in tops and they fit really well. Mens department~~~~~~ My other half quite likes the clothes in matalan and will often come away with a few nice tops. Like the womens sections there's clothes sutible for all ages, and they do a fab range of winter coats for men. The sizes like the womens are really good. They do PJ's and underwear for ...

Professor Layton and Pandora's Box (Nintendo DS) 26/10/2009

If you loved the first game you'll love this more......

Professor Layton and Pandora's Box (Nintendo DS) Advantages: Great game, extra's, surprises, good story. Disadvantages: none except the puzzles if you can't complete them can get annoying I borrowed this game off my brother 2 days ago and it's so totally addictive I have completed it already, thought best write the review a.s.a.p whilst it's still fresh in my memory....... Ok at the very beginning of the game you will recognise characters from the previous Professor Layton and the Curious Village game. The story begins at the train station and it's there you will see Professor Layton, his apprentice Luke, Flora, and the detective. So it's as if the story has been continued on from last time. This time the story is based on the search of the elusive Elysian Box..... an antique said to bring death upon any who dare open it's lid...... Layton receives a letter from his old tutor and friend Dr Schrader. In it he explains that the Elysian box is finally in his hands and he can't resist opening it, he want's Layton to know if anything happens to him that the rumor is true....... At Dr Schrader's flat/apartment, Layton and Luke find him........ They also find a train ticket with no destination.... The rest of the story is based on the train and in the mystery town.... I don't want to give you lot's of information on it as it will spoil the game!! The Elysian Box wasn't with the Dr. It had vanished and Layton and Luke must hunt it down, along the way you will encounter lot's of new people not from ...

The Sims (PC) 26/10/2009

You can't choose your family.....well you can now!

The Sims (PC) This is a favourite game of mine, I find it quite good fun but really addictive :o) The Sims is like a virtual reality world which you control. You create your Sim, male/female, clothes, hair, name them. Or make a whole family, and move them into a house in the neighbour hood. You start off with a limited amount of cash - 20,000 (sim money, there is a name I just can't think of it lol), and you get the same amount no matter how small or big your family is. Out of this you need to buy yourself some place to live, whether it be a house or a plot of land to build on.....you can get a cheat code off the internet which gives you more money and you can build fantastic houses then, but thats cheating ;O)!!! You also need to buy furniture for your house and sometimes you won't be able to buy everything in one go and you will have to work to earn the cash!! Sims work by interacting with objects such as the telephone, T.V, fridge etc.. You will also need to read (as a sim lol) in order to be able to cook without burning down your house, the same goes for DIY, you may need to fix the toilet/sink at some point so read up on it before your Sim gets tired because then they refuse to do things......grrrrrr! You will also get neighbours who come and knock on your door early in the morning, and stay for breakfast, dinner and tea before saying they are tired and are now leaving! If you send them home they won't become your friend thus leaving your Sim to get lonely and stressed!!! ...

Asda Smart Price Strawberry Cheesecake 26/10/2009

Great for a sweet tooth.....

Asda Smart Price Strawberry Cheesecake Just 38p for a 90g tub you really can't grumble!! I am not a huge fan of cheesecakes but I must admit I do quite enjoy this one. The problem I usually have is that there is too much fruit in the topping and as I am not keen on tinned fruit, I found other cheesecakes very off putting. With these though there is just a strawberry sauce, which is actually very tasty, not too sweet not too tart, just right. There's a nice biscuit base but it could be a bit more crunchy, but not bad at all, there's a decent amount for a small tub too. I also quite like the soft cheese bit, it all tastes really well together. I like to get a bit of everything on the spoon, so that it all mingles together, my partner on the other hand likes to eat in layer by layer!! I find it a bit dry like that though! Overall a great item to have in the fridge if you have a sweet tooth ;O). Obviously you can get nicer cheesecakes but this one for 38p is really good. Summary: Great value, perfect for a sweet tooth

McDonald´s 26/10/2009

Im loving it.................

McDonald´s I am a fan of Mcdonalds, my partner likes KFC, so of course my first review will be for Mcdonalds lol!! I like the fact that Mcdonalds are very child friendly, the resturants have little chiild sized tables and some have those bead toy things for the little 'uns to play with :o) There is a wide varity of food and it pretty much caters for most people. From burgers such as the Big Mac with it's top secret sauce to the McChicken Sandwich, the Fillet'o'Fish to Deli items and salads. They also do a breakfast range which is available from 5.30am/6am up untill 10.30am in most resturants. They do a Pound Saver range where you can pick up around 9 different items for 99p except the Double Cheese Burger which is priced at £1.19. The Happy Meals for the children are great too, you get to choose from the following ~ chicken nuggets, cheese burger, hamburger or fish fingers, then a choice of fries, carrot sticks, a fruit bag, and then your choice of drink...milkshake, fruit shoot, organic milk, orange juice, soft drinks such as cola, fanta etc or water. They cost £1.99 each which I find a really good price. You can check out the nutrition info at www.mcdonalds.co.uk, there's too much to list so it would be easier to check it for yourself :o) Most Mcdonalds also conviently have a drive through which can make things so much easier when it is full in the resturant itself. My opinion ~~~~ Overall I find Mcdonalds a fun place to take the kiddies, we go ...

Ariel Excel Gel 26/10/2009

Get's your white's white

Ariel Excel Gel Since this came on the shelves at my local Asda I rarely buy anything else. The usual price is £4.34 for a 666ml bottle (18 washes) but it's usually on offer for around £3 if not a bit less. I like it for the simple fact the packaging is a lot smaller and fit's in the cupboard! This comes in a small ovaley shaped white bottle, there is a clear stripe up the side which let's you see how much gel is left. It has a dosing cup fitted onto the top of the bottle and the bottle is a flip top lid for easy usage. The bottle stands on the lid so in a sense it is always upside down and therefore you get all of the gel out and there is no waste. What with having 3 messy boy's I have load after load of washing every day!! I don't know where it all comes from though!! I find that Ariel gets the clothes up nice and clean and the scent lasts for ages, I love opening the wardrobes to the smell of freshly washed clothes. Dosage ~~~ 1 dose = 1 full load For normal/light soiling use 37ml For the toughest stains use 46ml There's a line around the cup for the first amount and for the second fill to the top. How to use ~~~ Quite simple really, fill the cup and place it in the washing machine along with the dirty clothes and put the machine on! Ariel is designed to be used at low temperatures, and still get the clothes up nice and clean. My personal opinion ~~~ Ariel is a product that I trust will get my laundry up brilliantly clean, and it does, I ...

Ferrero Rocher 25/10/2009

The ambassador is really spoiling us with this one!Ferrero Rocher

Ferrero Rocher I absolutly love Ferrero Rocher's and at christmas time get loads in because I know everyone else loves them too :o( lol! They usually come in a plastic box like container, but at christmas time you can get the pyramid shaped box and the christmas tree shaped packaging too! They make a great present too as they look quite festive. In the little rectangular box you get 16 gold foil balls over 2 layers, which sit in a brown cup, under the wrapper, you get a ball of nutty chocolate with a wafer type ball inside that and then that is filled with nutella type chocolate and a whole hazelnut mmmmm. I usually buy them in Asda for about £3, in Asda at the moment they do have an offer 2 for £5. They can also be bought in most other stores for around about the same price. You can get the Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Diamond which is a flat box of 1 layer of 25 chocolates this is in Asda priced at £5.29 but is on offer 2 for £8. You can also get a tray of 32 chocolates, these are wrapped in dark brown, silver, and gold so I am guessing these are milk chocolate, white and dark chocolate, I haven't yet tried these but they are in Asda priced at £6.82. There a a few other varities available but you will need to check them out for yourself :o) My personal opinion~~~ I just love these delicious chocolate balls! They have a nutty texture and the middle wafer adds an extra crunch, the centre is very nutella like and seeing as they are made byt he same company as nutella ...

Huggies Little Swimmers Nappies 25/10/2009

Huggies little swimmers for your water baby

Huggies Little Swimmers Nappies I bought these when went away as I had forgotton my baby's swimming shorts! I think I had them from Tesco and paid arond £4 - £5 for a pack of 10-12 nappies. The ones I bought had a lovely Finding Nemo design on them and I'm sure there was a different design for girls. When we went in the pool they worked brilliantly, there were no leaks and they lasted the whole hour we were in the pool. They do expand like a wet nappy does but it didn't explode like wet nappy would usually! They go on like a pull up nappy and tear off from the sides. We did have an accident though the next day whilst going to the pool.... We thought it would be easier for us all to put our swimming costumes on under out clothes so we could get into the pool quicker...with 3 kiddies it is easier lol! What we didn't count upon was the fact that swimming nappies are not like normal nappies! They don't hold wee like a normal nappy and we had to change the poor thing again, he was soaked through lol! Once they get wet they are great but dry they are a no no! Summary: Great for the pool and you haven't got to wash dirty swimming cossies when you get home.
