Hotel De Normandie, St. Saviour 20/03/2015

Stayed here every year for 7 year's. Perfection.

Hotel De Normandie, St. Saviour I will start by saying that me, my nan, my dad and my gramps have stayed in this hotel at least once every year for around 7 to 8 year's. The last time I stayed here was in 2010, when I was 14 (I am 19 now.) The hotel features and my quick opinion Indoor swimming pool- Clean, lovely, relaxing and not very busy. Indoor laundrette (with ironing board.) -Nice warm room where you can wash and iron. indoor Jacuzzi- relaxing, comfy and stress-free. indoor steam room- Stress-free and very relaxing and bubbly. huge restaurant and bar- Tables clean, bar nice place to sit and have a drink, watch TV and play snooker, huge, clean and cosy restaurant with friendly staff. Big reception area- Has a lot of cosy chairs to sit on, tables and magazines to keep you busy and lovely and helpful staff. The hotel rooms. Every room that we have stayed in has been perfect, except the room where my nan complained and we moved rooms, but that was because of the noise from a fan.. Anyway, in my opinion the hotel rooms are clean, home-like, comfy, relaxing and lovely. The beds in the hotel rooms are really comfy, and every time we stayed at the hotel the rooms were all clean and lovely, no complaints off us. The rooms are actually quite big, and laid out nicely and not crowded. There is usually some windows in the rooms that show you a lovely view of the garden like scenery of around the hotel. The hotel rooms are home-like, and when I say that I mean comfy and beautiful. The hotel rooms have ...

Wellington Hotel, New York City 20/03/2015

Staff were lovely, room was stunning and old fashioned, perfect.

Wellington Hotel, New York City Well me, my nan and my dad went to New York for 6 days (I am 19.) And we stayed in this hotel, which we all found to be stunning, beautiful and lovely! Location The hotel is located obviously in New York City. But surrounding it, are beautiful skyscrapers, shops, busy streets and lovely window views. What I loved about this hotel was when you was out and about and coming back, the hotel stood out and was easy to see so you didn't get lost, and that's why I loved the hotel. The reception area and the staff As you walk in, there is a huge chandelier, comfy seats, friendly staff who greet you and lift's to take you to your room. The reception area was busy when me, my nan and my dad went as loads of people were checking in, but the staff still managed to greet us, smile and offer to help us with out suitcases, We went May 2014, so I remember it like it was yesterday. A member of staff actually offered to help with our suitcases and carry them when we went into the lift, and I thought that was really kind and nice. The staff always smiled at us and asked how we were, and our plans for that day. What I also loved about the Wellington Hotel was that all the staff were kind and nice and genuine, unlike some hotels I have been too. The room When we walked into the room I was actually astonished. We all had a big bed each, that was comfy I went straight to bed, I had jet lag but the bed was comfy anyway. The room had a little room, where my dad slept and a wall blocking part ...

Bourjois Happy Light Foundation 18/03/2015

Perfect for the natural look, blends amazingly and lasts for long

Bourjois Happy Light Foundation I first used this foundation last year, and have been using it since then. I purchased mine from a boots for £10. But you can also buy the foundation from Superdrug. Opinion What I love about this product is that it makes you're skin look flawless, beautiful and natural. When I brought the foundation I expected it to stay on, blend and make my skin look great, and I wasn't disappointed by it, My skin tone is very naturally light, so when I tried this I wondered if it would blend well, or make me look like I have piles of foundation on. It blended so well with my skin and made me look beautiful and gave me the natural look, that is effortless but effective at the same time. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a foundation that lasts, that makes skin look lovely and flawless and doesn't disapoint you when you buy it, How it blends I am a typical 19 year old girl, so I have a few spots here and there. But when I applied this foundation with my sponge, I found that it covers them up really well and makes my skin look naturally flawless. I can put a lot of this foundation on and it still blends perfectly and does the job of what it says on the tube. Lasting This foundation, for me, lasted to around 5 hours, as I didn't top it up at college to make it look better, it just stayed on and lasted really well. My friends who have also got this foundation also said that it lasted a while for them and didn't fade, which is really good, I wuld recommend this for ...

Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick 101 18/03/2015

Nice matte finish to it, natural look and trendy.

Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick 101 I brought this product because it was by Kate Moss and my best friend of 13 years recommended it, and ai trust her, so I thought I would try it out. My mom has recently brought me some more of Kate Moss' make up range too. What is it This lipstick is in Kate Moss' make up range. It is meant to be long lasting and give a really nice matte look, as well as not fading. Opinion When I tried this lipstick for the first time yesterday, it looked absolutely amazing when I applied it. A lovely shade, a great matte look and the shade was natural which made the look fab. However, I was with my boyfriend out at dinner and I was having a drink, and I noticed that my lipstick had faded. I was a little disappointed, as I expected it to last for ages, when I had only been out two hours. I expected it to last longer for the £6 I paid for it. I have no problem with how it looks on, as I think it gives an effortless look to your style and at the same time looks beautiful when you apply it, shame it doesn't last long. I do like the lipstick though, and overall I don't regret buying it, because it really does look nice and beautiful on and if I need to re-apply it during the day then I will take the lipstick with me. Would I recommend it I would recommend this lipstick, to people who don't mind topping up their lipstick during the day, and to someone who loves a great shade that gives you a fab and natural look, but at the same time adds a nice texture and tone to you're lips.

Asda Vapour Rub 16/03/2015

Strong smell, works brilliantly and comes in handy.

Asda Vapour Rub I always use to use this when I was little and I had a blocked nose, and it has always helped me. For me, it reminds me of my childhood, sounds strange but thought I'd say. Where from I brought mine from Asda for just £1. But you can also get other brands of vapour rub from Sainsbury's, Tesco, Boot's, Superdrug, Savers, and any other store that sells beauty products and soothers. What does it do? This vapour rub is made to make it cooler and easier to breathe if you have a cold, blocked nose or flu. It is a strong vapour and the scent it strong, so it does the job it says on the tub. You are meant to rub a small amount on you're chest, back and your throat, for maximum effect. When I have flu or just a blocked nose this vapour rub always comes in handy and it works so well, makes it 10 times better than it was before. Although, it's not wise to leave your child near to it, as I left my sister near vapour rub and she got it in her eyes...ouch. Not a mistake I would make again. I think this is a product that actually works and does what it says on the rub, which I can't say for a lot of products nowadays. I have always used vapour rub and I would recommend it to anyone who is prone to cold's and blocked noses, like me. Because it truly does unblock your nose and makes you feel fresh and have a deep breath. It gives you a cooling sensation in my opinion and really makes it easier to breathe and gives you a strong cooling sensation that makes it clearer to breathe and ...

Touch Of Silver Daily Shampoo 16/03/2015

Nice smell, makes hair shiny and silky. Makes a difference.

Touch Of Silver Daily Shampoo I have been using this product for a while now, and every time I use it I can see a difference to my hair. First of all I will type a method I generally use with this shampoo. What is it Silver shampoo is designed to make you're hair shiny and with some brighter tones. It is meant to make your hair look healthier and like silk. How I use it I usually apply a little bit of the shampoo to my hair, and rub it in and foam it up and make sure every inch of my hair is covered. It foams really well so only a bit is needed. It says on the bottle you should leave it on for 5-10 minutes, but i tend to leave it on for 15-20 minutes for a better result. Opinion I use the silver shampoo for my roots to lighten them, and I can see a result after I dry my hair afterwards. After I have dried my hair I look at it and I can see silver pieces that's glow in the light and make my hair look beautiful and glossy. I use it to lighten my roots, it doesn't damage my hair unlike hair dyes do, and it makes my hair shine too. As well as adding light tones to my hair, this silver shampoo makes my hair glossy, smooth and healthy look and feel to it. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to have smooth and soft hair and for people who want lighter tones to their hair, making it shine and look nice and bright.

Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Revitalising Dry Shampoo 16/03/2015

Makes hair shiny and beautiful.

Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Revitalising Dry Shampoo I brought this product because I have used products from this brand before and I was really drawn to it because I needed a product that actually works. I find that this spray actually works and makes my hair feel smooth, shiny and stand out. For me, it makes my hair in really great condition and it looks so shiny and it feels light and weightless. How to use it It is simple to use this spray. As all you need to do is spray it on your hair from a short distance, and you can brush the excess spray off so it doesn't make it look fuller this it's meant to look. What I think about it I love it. It actually works, unlike a lot of products that I know are a lot more expensive and you can't tell the difference when you apply it. For me, touch of silver revitalising dry shampoo makes my hair gleam and slow, and makes it in really great condition. I remember the other day, I applied a lot of hairspray to my hair and I had only just washed it. I used the dry shampoo on my hair and I saw a difference. My hair was in good condition and it makes it look ever so shiny and healthy. I brush through my hair after I have used the spray, as this adds volume and boosts it, making it in better condition than leaving the excess spray on my hair. And I think that if you brush your hair after using the spray it also makes your hair feel free and weightless, as well as shiny and glossy with some glossy tones.

As the sisters get older, Kate starts to give up, causing her sister, Anna to fight for her rights and get a lawyer against her mum, Sara Fitzgerald. My opinion: I love this movie, because it is so heart warming and emotional. This film in my opinion, has twists and turns in the plot that leave you wondering what's next. But more than that, I feel that this film has a deep meaning and feeling that is realised at the end of the movie. There couldn't be a better cast for the film, as they are all brilliant and perfect for their roles in my opinion and they make you feel exactly what the characters feel at each scene. What I love about this film is it makes you cry, the scenes make you feel the deep message in them and the cast's talent is super and it makes it perfect in my opinion. I feel that this film is a very heart wrenching film that makes you tear up and in some scenes smile and think 'lovely.'

Bridesmaids (DVD) 16/03/2015

Hilarious movie. Great for a sleepover and a night in.

Bridesmaids (DVD) I love this movie. I first watched it with my best friends of thirteen years, and I loved it. I will start by doing a short summary of th movie and th cast, and then I I'll give my review, Running time: 132 minutes Release date: April 28th 2011 Director- Paul Feig Cast Kristen Wiig (Annie Walker.)

Annie is introduced to Lillian's bridesmaids, Helen, Megan, Rita and Becca. But when Annie is introduces to Lillian's bridesmaid who is beautiful and has a successful job, Annie soon feels in competition with her. Will the wedding planning to to plan, or will it ruin friendships? Opinion I think this movie is so funny, and every time I watch it I end up laughing. Some of the scens I think, are gross, such as the toilet scene where everyone has food poisoning, I think some people might not find that funny, I did though. What I love about this movie Is the plot is emotional at times, funny and unique to many other filmsI have seen. The plot I think has many twists and turns to it and you never know or guess what will happen. I think the cast of the movie are excellent too, as I am a huge fan of Rose Byrne, Kristen Wiig and Matt Lucas, and that is the reason I watched ...

Nails Inc Nail Colour Collection 15/03/2015

Nice shade, dries fast, nice shine and free with a magazine!

Nails Inc Nail Colour Collection I am letting my nails dry after painting them with this as I type this review. I know that this nail varnish is usually around 10 pound, but I got it free with a magazine in New York! So I can't complain, but I know that it is usually expensive. Applying it I find that the nail varnish is easy to apply and smooth. Usually I find that some nail varnishes when I apply it, it smudges and drips everywhere, but this nail varnish doesn't do that and it dries really fast. My opinion I think this varnish is a great shade and it is kind of a summer shade in my opinion. It dries really fast, literally. I started typing this review two minutes ago and it dried in the first minute. From my point of view, this nail varnish is overall great, nice shade, dries fast. However, I find that this nail varnish does chip really fast and for me, it only lasts around 1 to 2 days. I can't complain, as I got it free with a magazine, but if I had paid £10 for it to chip really fast then I would want a refund, because for the price it is usually listed I would expect it not to chip and for it to last a while before it actually chipped. Good points It dries really fast. The shade of the nail varnish is lovely. It doesn't smudge. The varnish itself I have had since last May when I went to New York, so it lasts! The brush has a sleek stroke when you apply the varnish, meaning it doesn't drip.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks 15/03/2015

Moisturises skin and fades strecth marks. Lovely smell.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks I have been using this product for around 2 months, and I love it. It's meant to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The ingredients include, vitamin E, Collagen,Elastin, cocoa butter and shea butter,. What it's like and how it works The smell of this is cocoa butter. It smells yummy, and like chocolate, although I wouldn't eat it. I find this product really does what it says, unlike plenty of products nowadays. I use plenty of it, and make sure I put it where my stretch marks are so it can reduce their appearance. I think that this product really works and it fades stretch marks. I have been using the massage lotion for around 2 months, and I can hardly see my stretch marks I used to have. I brought the massage lotion because it was cheap, and I was after a product that actually works so I gave it a go. I don't regret it, as I think that it works superb. The smell I love the smell of it. It has a nice cocoa butter smell to it. I think it smells like chocolate, as it is made from cocoa beans but I wouldn't eat it :) Disadvantages I find that the massage lotion doesn't absorb much, unless you spend ages rubbing it where you're stretch marks are. I only use a bit now, but it still doesn't absorb much so I have to use even less and then top it up with more lotion.

Strictly Professional Creamy Cuticle Oil 15/03/2015

Softens cuticles, makes them smooth and conditions well.

Strictly Professional Creamy Cuticle Oil Well I have been using this product for ages now, and my nan has also used this and gave her opinion. This product is meant to be massaged onto the cuticles and surrounding area, It is meant to increase blood circulation under the nail. Opinion I love this product. I have been using it for a while now, and every time I use it, it makes my cuticles really soft and my nails too. It's easy to apply, as all you do is massage a little bit of the oil onto the cuticles and the nail (I usually do that anyway) and then apply nail varnish or whatever. When I use this product on my nans cuticles she always says they feel softer and smell nice, although I don't agree about the smell. I find this cuticle oil to be really refreshing and dehydrating to your cuticles and they feel smoother after. I tend to put the cuticle oil on my nails too, as it does the same job on them. It works well on my nails too and it leaves them shiny and soft. I find it relaxing too when I use the cuticle oil, because it adds moisture to my cuticles and also nails too, which I love. Disadvantages The smell. I don't like the smell to this. But the smell doesn't affect how well the product works. I just find the smell of this a little strong, and I think it smells like tea tree oil, but even stronger and you're like 'wow.' ...

T-Zone Clear Pore Anti-bacterial Cleanser 15/03/2015

Dehydrates skin and makes it soft and smooth.

T-Zone Clear Pore Anti-bacterial Cleanser T-Zone clear pore cleanser is an anti-bacterial cleanser, that is meant to clean pores, remove oil and grease and bacteria from the face. Opinion time When I first used this product I was 16, I am now 19. I noticed a difference from the first time I used it, I never thought it would work though. I used to have very oily skin and a lot of spots, but I used this for a few weeks and I felt better for it, my skin was soft and smooth and I hardly had any spots or oil on my skin. I find this product really easy to use, as you don't have to use water to rinse it off, all you have to do is put it on your face and then wait for the miracle. For me, it worked really well and limited the amount of grease on my face and made my skin so much clearer. Disadvantage Some people might not like the tea tree smell of it. I like the tea tree smell, as I find it refreshing but some people might not like it.

Crusha Strawberry Milkshake Syrup 13/03/2015

Lovely taste, strawberry is very sweet and refreshing.

Crusha Strawberry Milkshake Syrup I love these! I thought I'd just say. My little sister likes these too. I used to go to McDonalds just for the milkshakes, as I'm vegetarian. I always used to go there, but when I tried these I thought ''Wow.'' The taste of the milkshake is really nice, cool and refreshing in my opinion. It is easy to make too, I brought the strawberry syrup one's yesterday and it took me a minute, If that, to make and it tastes delicious. The only problem I have with these is that they are quite high in sugar, and for children, lots of E numbers. I made my sister one of these milkshakes the other day and she was hyper, so I would maybe recommend putting less into the glass when giving the milkshake to children. The taste of it in my opinion is better than most milkshakes around, more taste and sweetness to it I think.

The Blind Side (DVD) 13/03/2015

Emotionally and heartfelt film. Inspiring.

The Blind Side (DVD) The Blind Side is a 2009 film. Running time- 128 minutes. Director- John Lee Hancock Cast- Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, Quinton Aaron, Lily Collins, Jae Head, Ray McKinnon, Kim Dickens and Adriane Lenox. About the film- When Michael Oher, a homeless man who is tall for his age, starts school, he encounters problems with fitting in. But then he befriends a boy in his class, S.J. After school hours, S.J's mum, Leigh Anne Tuohy sees Michael, and offers him a place to sleep. When the Tuohy family realise Michael is infact homeless, and doesn't talk much because of a traumatic experience, they let him live with them and help him build a future. Opinion I think this movie is so heart-warming and emotional, but at the same time it makes you laugh at some scenes. It shows a different path for a teenager who is homeless and who has been through a traumatic experience, and it is very heart-wrenching. Some scene in this film tug at your heart strings, but other scenes in the movie make you laugh and smile. For me, this movie is a very inspiring and moving storyline, because it shows how a homeless man who doesn't speak much, can actually achieve great things and make his family and himself proud, and that is what I love about this film. I find the plot in this film interesting, unique and lovely. All the characters are really brilliant and all the cast are perfect for the roles they play in my opinion. I am a huge fan of Sandra Bullock and Lily Collins, I found all of the other ...
