Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Restoring Hand Cream 15/08/2017

Hapbee Hands.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Restoring Hand Cream = = = = = = The Product = = = = = = I suffer from dry hands so I always like to keep hand cream in my bag so that I can apply some daily and whenever my hands are feeling and looking dry. During my recent holiday to Weymouth, I realised that I left my hand cream on my desk at work and my hands were very dry from the sand on the beach and the salt-water so I had to pop into my local Superdrug store to purchase some hand-cream. I didn’t want anything too expensive so I just chose a product which was on offer, which happened to be this Ultimate Blends Honey Treasure Hand Restoring Cream by Garnier. This product is suitable for very dry hands and it claims to be non-greasy and non-sticky, which is what I always look for in a hand cream as there is nothing worse than having greasy hands after using a hand-cream, especially when you want to get on with things. This product claims to have a rich, creamy texture, with a honey scent. The cream apparently spreads and penetrates immediately giving hands instant softness. This product has been dermatologically tested. The hand cream comes in a plastic tube which has an orange metallic colour to it. On the front, it clearly states the brand name of the product and what the product is. It also states that it contains royal jelly and nourishing honey. The lid to the tube is gold in colour and this flips back to reveal a small hole in which the product dispenses out of. When squeezing the tube gently, I can smell the sweet honey scent to ...

Playmobil City Life 6866 School Bus 12/08/2017

City Life Is Going To School On The Bus.

Playmobil City Life 6866 School Bus = = = = = = The Product = = = = = = Whilst I was away on holiday with my sister and nephews, my nephews of course had some money to spend which their Grandad had given them, so naturally a couple of days before they were due to leave they wanted to spend their money in the local Toy Master shop that is in Weymouth. My youngest nephew still plays with Playmobil every now and again and he spotted this School Bus which he immediately liked. Me and my sister tried to convince him to get something a little better or something that does a bit more than this but he was adamant that he wanted the school bus, so that’s what he ended up buying with his money. This school bus is part of the ‘City Life’ range and has a number of different features to it. The roof to the drivers cab and the passenger area and removeabl meaning you can place the three mini figures that come with the bus easily and you can easily take them out again. The rear seats in the back of the bus also fold down to make more room for up to 6 passengers. The bus is a bright yellow colour and the side door opens to enable the figures to get in and out of the bus easily. This playmobil bus is suitable for children aged 4-10yrs of age and is made from plastic. There is some assembly that is required, before being able to play with the bus. The playmobil pieces come in a box along with a leaflet with assembly instructions. The small pieces of playmobil are separated into bags. On the front of the box you can clearly see ...

Sunset Coffee Bar, Weymouth 10/08/2017

A Lovely Cafe For A Bite To Eat.

Sunset Coffee Bar, Weymouth = = = About = = = During my week in Weymouth with my sister and nephews, we visited an area of Weymouth called Bowleaze Cove, which was about a 15mins bus journey from where we were staying. There is plenty of parking there, but we all decided to get the open top bus there instead. The sunset bar/café is located in Fantasy Island Fun Park, in Bowleaze Cove, and sits above the soft play area. There are stairs to get up to the bar/café. I didn’t personally notice a lift but I am sure there probably is one somewhere to enable disabled users and families with pushchairs to get to the café. As we were intending on spending a few hours at the amusement park, because my nephews wanted to go on quite a few of the rides, we decided to have something to eat here. Well, me and my dad decided to eat here, whilst my sister decided to take my nephew to the other café located a very short walk from the amusement park because it’s slightly cheaper and they were running low on money. My dad had eaten at the sunset bar/café before and said that it was very good last time, so me and my dad were more than happy eating here, so we arranged to meet my sister, her husband and my nephews a little later after eating. = = = = Interior = = = = The interior to the bar/café is nice and reasonably modern. There are various seating areas, some of which have large sofas for big groups of people and there are smaller tables suitable for two or parties of four people. There is a nice amount of space between ...

Another Mother's Son (DVD) 09/08/2017

An Enjoyable and Easy to Watch Drama.

Another Mother's Son (DVD) = = = About = = = I subscribe to Amazon Prime and I still get DVD’s sent to me each week. I often just add random films on here to keep my list topped up and although I didn’t specifically look for this film to add to my list I came across it and thought it sounded quite good. I also thought my dad may like it as well as this is probably his kind of film. This film is a British war drama film directed by Christopher Menaul and written by Jenny Lecoat. The film stars Jenny Seagrove, Julian Kostov, Ronan Keating, John Hannah, and Amanda Abbington. The film is based on a true story from the German occupation of the Channel Islands, about a Jersey woman named Louisa Gould (played by Seagrove), who takes in an escaped young Russian war prisoner (played by Kostov), hiding him from the German forces. Her brother was Harold Le Druillenec and her sister was Ivy Forster. I watched this film a few weeks ago and I have to say that I enjoyed it a lot more than what I thought I would. = = = = = Main Cast = = = = = • Jenny Seagrove as Louisa Gould • John Hannah - Arthur • Julian Kostov – Bill • Amanda Abbington - Ivy • Ronan Keating - Harold • Félicité Du Jeu - Nicole • Susan Hampshire - Elena • Brenock O'Connor - Rex Forster • Peter Wight - Rene • Gwen Taylor - Lily Vibert • Joanna David - Maude Vibert • Andy Gathergood - Mattie • Sophie Skelton - Jess • Izzy Meikle-Small – Annie = = = = The Film = = = = We see Lou (Louisa) right from the very beginning of the film as she ...

Fun Factory, Weymouth 08/08/2017

Fun For the Kids On A Rainy Day.

Fun Factory, Weymouth = = = About = = = When me, my sister, her partner and nephews were in Weymouth, staying with our parents we unfortunately had a couple of wet days, which means we were very limited on what we could do. We knew there was a soft play centre called Fun Factory, so we decided to go there; how-ever upon arriving there, we were told we could be in for a long wait as it had only been open an hour and they were already full up. Due to this we decided to leave and go back another day shortly after opening. Me and my Dad decided to take my nephews here on the Friday as my sister and brother in law packed their bits away as we were all leaving on the Saturday to come back home. They have quite a large car park and it’s free to park here. We got there 5 minutes before they opened so we were the first ones in the queue; how-ever two other families with children joined the queue shortly after us and a few more people joined the queue as we walked into the building to the reception area. When you get to the reception they ask the age of the children going into soft-play and their names, an adult will need to sign the sign in form. After paying you can go through the green gate into the soft play area. = = = Prices = = = • Under 3’s - £3.25 • 3yrs and above - £4.75 • Weekdays and School Holidays - £5.75 = = = = Soft Play = = = = As you enter the large room, the first thing you notice is the soft play area towards the back and the counter, on the right-hand side, where you can purchase ...

Tyneham & Worbarrow, Dorset 04/08/2017

Where Time Stopped In 1943.

Tyneham & Worbarrow, Dorset = = = About = = = I had never heard of this place before until my dad mentioned it and told me about it. I thought the place sounded really interesting so on a recent holiday to Weymouth, we decided to visit this place. Tyneham is known as Dorset's famous 'lost' village. It gets this name because in 1943 the villagers whom lived here were told that they had to leave within 28 days as the area needed to be used for forces training. They all believed that they would return to their homes and life; although this was never to happen. Today the village is part of the Army Ranges but visitors are allowed here most weekends and public bank holidays. The church and school house still remain intact but the years have taken their toll on some of the other buildings. The school still has schoolwork on their desks and name on the pegs which makes it feel as though children and families have not long left the village. There are remains of the resident’s cottages to see and other buildings. Worbarrow has a remote costal hamlet of seven cottages and a coastguard station which was home to over 50 people. When the Station closed in 1911 the population plummeted and never recovered. Based around fishing and the nearby school and church at Tyneham, life here had remained unchanged for generations. In 1943, the ten remaining residents, most of them elderly, were evacuated from their homes. Little evidence of their homes remains today with only the shell of Gate Cottages visible beside the track ...

Asmodée Dobble 02/08/2017

My Nephew Taught Me How To Dobble!

Asmodée Dobble = = = About = = = Dobble is a game that I have never heard of before until recently when my sister, brother in law and their children came to Weymouth to visit my parents with me. They bought a few games down and this was just one of them which we seemed to play more so than others. Dobble is a simple pattern recognition game in which players try to find an image shown on two cards. You can have a minimum of 2 players and a maximum of 8 players for this game. The game is suitable for children aged 8 years and up and average time to play the game is around 15mins. The cards are round and come in a tin which clearly states the name of the game on the front. There is a total of 55 cards all which features eight different symbols, with the symbols varying in size from one card to the next. Any two cards have exactly one symbol in common. There is a round leaflet inside the tin telling you how to play the game. There are various ways to play the game; how-ever, no matter the game you always need to be the fastest to spot the identical symbol between two cards, name it out loud and then take the card, place it or discard it, depending on the rules of the mini-game you are playing = = = = = = = = Price/Availability = = = = = = = = You can purchase the game from Amazon for around £8.97 which is very reasonable value as most places have this game for sale at around £13.00. = = = = = = How to Play = = = = = = • Mini Game One – The object of this game is to be the player who has ...

Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Sun Tan Lotion SPF15 01/08/2017

I Wish I Was Using This in The Tropics!

Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Sun Tan Lotion SPF15 = = = = = = The Product = = = = = = On my recent visit to Weymouth, we had a bout of very warm weather and of course to make the most of the weather we took my nephews to the beach. I didn’t pack any sun-lotion so I had to go and purchase some as I have fair skin and tend to burn very easily in the sun. In previous years I have purchased Nivea Sun Lotion but this year after looking at the top-rated sun care products, I decided to purchase this particular one as it was one of the top-rated products on the Which website. The sun lotion is a unique protective sun lotion with 12hr hydrating ribbons. The product contains natural silk protein and glycerine and offers UVA/UVB protection. The lotion has a lightweight feel to it with nourishing antioxidants and it has a tropical fragrance to it. This product is also water resistant. The product comes in a plastic bottle which stands on its lid. The bottle has a matte finish to it and is a light white colour, so you can see the hydrating ribbons part of the lotion in the bottle, which are a beige colour. On the front of the bottle, it states the brand name of the product and also the factor. This particular bottle is a factor 15 which I find is always a suitable factor for me as I am never in the sun for very long and we were only planning on being at the beach for a couple of hours. The lid to the product is a dark brown colour and this flips back to reveal a small hole in which the product dispenses out of. On the back of the bottle ...

Board games: which are the best for you? 28/07/2017

Our Sunday's and Holiday's Were All About Board Games.

Board games: which are the best for you? = = = = = = = Board Games = = = = = = = As a child, me and my sister used to love playing board games and we had a huge range of board games that we would regularly play over the summer holidays and weekends. We used to spend a whole Sunday playing various different games and making a note of who won what game and then see who won the most game at the end of the day. Although there are still lots of board games around now, unfortunately, I don’t think children play with them as much now as me and my sister used to due to having things such as tablets and computers which children tend to play on a lot now. My nephews have quite a few board games and my youngest nephew in particular has his favourite games to play as does my older nephew. They enjoy playing games every now and again and have quite a few games in their collection; although some of the games they have aren’t what they used to be and they have changed a lot now. I find that the games now and are unfortunately made from cheaper plastic and bits and don’t seem as good quality as they used to be when me and my sister used to play games. = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Board Games I Have Enjoyed = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Unfortunately, some of the games me and my sister used to play are no longer available to purchase in stores; although some still can be purchased from places such as eBay but some of the old board games can go for a ridiculous price, just due to the age of them and the fact they are no longer ...

Ripper Street Season 2 (Blu-ray) 28/07/2017

Just like the First . . Another Gripping Series.

Ripper Street Season 2 (Blu-ray) = = = About = = = After watching the first episode of Ripper Street that was set in 1889, I was hooked on this series and couldn’t wait to see the next one. The second season of Ripper Street is set in 1890 and this series is again quite gripping with various storylines and historical backdrops including Chinese Immigrations, The Cleveland Street Scandal, Joseph Merrick known as ‘The Elephant Man’ and the Electrical Ware of Currents. This series has a total of 8 episodes, and all the familiar characters from the first series appear again in the second series with some additional members added to the cast. = = = = = Main Cast = = = = = • Matthew Macfadyen as Detective Inspector Edmund Reid • Jerome Flynn as Detective Inspector, Bennet Drake • Adam Rothenberg as Captain Homer Jackson • MyAnna Buring as "Long" Susan Hart/Caitlin Swift Judge • Charlene McKenna as Rose Erskine • Damien Molony as Detective Constable Albert Flight • Joseph Mawle as Detective Inspector Jedediah Shine • Leanne Best as Jane Cobden • Alicia Gerrard as Charity • Frank Harper as Silas Duggan = = = = = = The Series = = = = = = • Episode 1: “Pure as the Driven” – The start of this episode doesn’t disappoint as a sergeant from a neighbouring police district is hurled from a window onto the iron railings below. Needless to say, this isn’t pleasant as one of his legs gets impaled by one of the spokes from the railing. Sergeant Bennett Drake happens to know the sergeant that was earlier thrown from a ...

Sally Hansen Double Duty Base Coat 27/07/2017

A Long Lasting Professional Finish To My Nails.

Sally Hansen Double Duty Base Coat = = = = = = The Product = = = = = = I haven’t painted my nails for a long time as I have been using a treatment on them to try and help strengthen them but the other weekend I fancied painting them for a change as I think the last time I painted them was a good 2 months ago. I always apply a base coat before applying a nail colour to stop my nails from staining and the base coat I had was rather thick and gloopy so I had to go and purchase some more. My mother actually asked me to get her a nail strengthening product so I bought her the Sally Hansen one I had been using but as this range was on offer I also decided to purchase this ‘Double Duty’ nail polish which is a Base and Top Coat. As a base coat, this product moisturises and hydrates nails with Panthenol and as a top coat it protects with Nylon. Nails are shielded with a hard, shiny chip resistant finish. The product comes in a bottle which is quite flat and a square shape. It states on the front of the bottle what the product is. The lid to the product is light blue and the applicator brush is attached to it. The bottle is made from clear glass so you can see when you are running low on the product. On the back of the bottle it tells you how to use the product. = = = = = = = = Price/Availability = = = = = = = = This is currently priced at £5.25 on the Boots website but they currently have an offer which is ‘Buy 1 get 2nd Half Price on selected Sally Hansen products. I think you can also purchase this from Superdrug ...

Dorset County Museum, Dorchester 26/07/2017

A Great Museum For A Rainy Day.

Dorset County Museum, Dorchester = = = About = = = During our recent stay in Weymouth we wanted to make the most out of our week, so decided to spend a couple of days visiting different attractions in the area. My dad had already been to this museum and mentioned how much he enjoyed it, so during out recent visit to Dorchester, after visiting the Tutankhamun Exhibition, we decided to visit this museum to fill the day up before heading back to Weymouth. Dorset County Museum is an independent museum. Owned and managed by the Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society, it receives financial support from Dorset County Council and West Dorset District Council. Dorset County Museum was established in 1845 to save the natural history and archaeology of a county felt at risk from the effects of the Industrial Revolution. The coming of the railways in the 1840s saw Dorchester’s Roman sites at Poundbury and Maumbury Rings threatened with destruction. The poet, William Barnes, and the vicar of Fordington, Reverend Henry Moule, decided to form an organization that would protect these sites and the natural history of the area and on 15th October 1845 the Dorset County Museum and Library was founded. The Museum has an array of fascinating galleries, dealing with a wide range of subjects from the natural sciences and geology to art, history and literature. The galleries include many video displays, interactive exhibits and activity carts for children. The galleries include Jurassic Dorset, Ancient Dorset Gallery, ...

The Tutankhamun Exhibition, Dorchester 24/07/2017

A Great Exhibit If You Have An Interest in Tutankhamun.

The Tutankhamun Exhibition, Dorchester = = = About = = = During my recent holiday in Weymouth with my sister and other family, we wanted to visit a few places. I have wanted to visit this museum for a while now and despite being down Weymouth last year and the previous year, I only got around to visiting it this year. The Tutankhamun Exhibition is a spectacular recreation of Tutankhamun's tomb and treasures. This internationally acclaimed exhibition spans time itself. Extensively featured on television throughout the world. The current exhibition of Tutankhamun follows the Treasures of Tutankhamun exhibition that was shown in London at the British Museum in 1972. The exhibition travelled to many countries including the USA, USSR, Japan, France, Canada and West Germany. During this period, in spite of expert supervision and care, the exhibits unfortunately suffered from their ordeal. The Egyptian Government, in an effort to preserve them from any future stress, made a decision that the Gold Mask of Tutankhamun and many of the major treasures were not to leave their home in Egypt again. Tutankhamun Exhibition was designed and created to overcome this problem. All the exhibits have been carefully crafted by meticulous reference to the original antiquities, photographic records and detailed measurements and diagrams. Craftsmen and artists have recreated the treasures by using, wherever practicable, materials and methods used in making the originals, making the treasures shown in this exhibition identical as ...

Ye Olde White Hart, Camberley 20/07/2017

Once a Coaching Inn Now a Lovely Little Pub.

Ye Olde White Hart, Camberley = = = About = = = Every Tuesday me and my boyfriend go out for a meal with his mother and we always stay fairly local. Ye Old White Heart is a local pub to my boyfriend’s mother in Frimley, Surrey and it’s often quite nice so we decided to go there for something to eat one evening after work. The building was once a Coaching Inn and is now part of the Taylor-Walker chain which to be honest isn’t a chain that I have heard of before. The pub is easy to find, with it being located in Frimley High Street and has a reasonable amount of parking. The pub is mainly white in colour with some black so it stands out a fair bit and can’t easily be missed when passing the pub. There is a side entrance to the pub which leads off from the car park and the outside area. The pub looks quite nice from the outside with tables and chairs outside with various plants pots around to make it look attractive. They have a sheltered smoking area towards the end of the outside area. There is another entrance at the front of the pub as well although I think most people use the side entrance. = = = = = = = = = = = = Interior/First Impressions = = = = = = = = = = = = When walking into the pub I think it looks lovely. Over on the left is a large area with various different tables where you can sit and enjoy a food. I would say that this is their main area for eating, although you can sit and eat anywhere in the pub where you want. The area on the left has a beautiful high ceiling with wooden beams. ...

Micro Machines: World Series (Xbox One) 14/07/2017

Race Like It's 1996!

Micro Machines: World Series (Xbox One) = = = = = = The Product = = = = = = In a bid to save for our own place, me and my boyfriend have been avoiding going to the pub at the weekend’s and instead have been staying in. We have spent some evenings playing games on the Xbox, but we have a lack of games so I decided to have a look to see what games were available for the Xbox One that we can play together. We were talking about games that we used to play on the PlayStation and on the Xbox 360 so I decided to look up some of the names of the games to see if any of them were available on the Xbox One and to my surprise one of them was, which is the game I am now reviewing. I used to play Micro Machines on the PlayStation with my sister and we both loved playing it so when I saw that this game was due out, I decided to pre-order it as the game seemed a very reasonable price. This game is called Micro Machines World Series and it retains the manic social gameplay of the classic series which has been updated with stunning HD visuals, that will see you return to the garden, kitchen, workshop and many more great locations in an array of amazing miniature vehicles. In addition to classic game modes such as Race and Elimination, Micro Machines World Series introduces all new Battle Arenas which allow you to wreak mass destruction on a miniature scale against your friends or the AI. Meanwhile, Team play lets you work together using your vehicles’ unique skills in modes such as “Capture the Flag” and “King of the Hill.” = = = ...
