I had previously had the iPhone 3G so knew pretty much what I was getting when I decided to upgrade to the iPhone 4. The styling of the 4 is much more contemporary, slick straight and flat lines as opposed to the curving edges of the 3. New features include a flash on the camera, front and rear camera, video recording, facetime to name but a few. I have had a few problems however. The right hand part of my screen is non responsive to touch, and therefore I have to keep turning my phone to use the text option. There are certain apps etc where the screen cannot be turned and so therefore I am unable to use these (adding new contact etc, I cannot type in certain letters). Despite this, I will still happily choose and iPhone when the time to upgrade comes round again. I feel they look and work better than any other smart phone out there, hence why most (i.e. the samsung something or other) are trying to look just like the iPhone and work the same way! The screen is by far clearer than that of a blackbury and there arent those pesky little buttons to contend with. iPhone all the way!!
I have been using this particular fabric softner now for a few months and have found that it is not only the nicest smelling, but that the scent really comes through on your washing even after it has dried, unlike most which smell nice whilst your clothes are damp and then the smell fades in drying. Everytime I place the liquid in my washing machine I have a sneaky smell of the bottle and it smells almost good enough to eat. I place this in the drawer and put detergent in the machine to make sure my boyfriends' smelly football kit and underwear comes out smelling better than the perfume section in boots. I haven't tried any of the other scents but think I may treat myself soon. Use this, you won't be disappointed ! ! ( The pink bottle with foral detail on looks cute too ! ! )
I had struggled for ages to find a good concealer. Most are either too thick, come in an annoying stick form and are difficult to use precisely. I was skeptical when I first saw this advertised on the Clinique website as I had been let down so many times before. I needn't have worried. This is probably the one item in my makeup bag that I honestly couldn't live without. I use mine on uneven skin tone, red ness after blemishes and occasionally for dark circles. IT.IS.BRILLIANT. The soft brushes are so gentle on the skin. If I have expelled too much then i simply wipe it up with the brush, replace the cap, and use it the next time and it hasnt dried up! I use it every day, and even though it is only a small pen-like tube, it always lasts a good 3,4 or 5 months. Excellent value for money and a trusted brand name in Clinique, if you are thinking of trying this then please do. I promise you you won't be disappointed!
I was involved in a car accident two weeks ago, and my own convertible (a Ford Streetka Winter Edition) has been written off. In the meantime, my very generous mother is letting me drive her car, an 03 plate sky blue Peugeot 206cc 1.6. This car is a little bigger than my Streetka, and benefits from an electric roof, larger boot space and back seats. The latter however are completely pointless as even my 5 year old neices feet are squashed up against the drivers seat even when it is fully forward! I find the clutch biting point is way too high and am constantly over revving the vehicle. Also, it is difficult to find the reverse gear without navigating to 4th first (this has been mentioned by other people I know who also drive the same car). Another point, my mother and I are both petite (5ft and 5ft2") and yet our heads are very close to the ceiling. I cannot drive the car with the sun visor down as I am constantly headbutting it which is very irritating. The exterior from the front looks identical to the standard 206, a little dated now I think. I have driven many other cars, all for many different lengths of time, and have gotten to grips with them easily. The peugeot 206cc however I am still trying to master. It has since been removed from my prospective new car list, and I will consider a more up to date cabriolet.
I spent years as a teenager trying to find a foundation that was lightweight, non clogging and most importantly didn't make me look like an umpa lumpa. I must have spent hundreds of pounds and tried just as many brands, until I stumbled upon this little gem. I always buy my clinique online as there are always voucher codes and offers. I guessed my skin tone (it would obviously be easier to go instore and have a trained professional help you). I opted for 'Nude Glow'. When the foundation arrived I was shocked at how thin and watery it was, every other foundation i had used had been more of a thick consistency. This was great. It went on really evenly and stayed on my skin all day, without having that 'heavy feeling'. Another bonus is that it has never caused me outbreaks of spots or blemishes like a lot of other foundations do. Clinique have since discontinued making this foundation which is a real shame, however I am still able to buy it through auction sites from the USA. My only fear is that they too will stop selling it and I will be left spending yet more money and time looking for an inferior foundation.
As a young, image conscious female of 24 it wasn't out of the ordinary for me to be obsessed with getting my hands on a convertible. I had after all been driving for 6 years and felt it was my right to have a car that not only drove great, but that I looked great driving ;-). After months of research on autrader and such like I had my heart set on a Ford Streetka. Living on the Isle of Wight, it isn't the easiest to go and view cars and then risk not liking them/the car not being as expected. Luckily for me, in October 2009 my local Ford dealership put up for sale a 2004 Streetka Winter Edition. Silver, hard top, soft top,heated leather interior, heated front and rear screens, fog lights, air con, 6 cd changer. She was a beauty, and had been previously owned by one elderly lady who had only racked up a mere 15k on the clock in 5 years. After my test drive of only 5 mins, I purchased my dream. I remember driving back to work at lunch time having picked 'her' up and feeling so special. I had my streetka for 2 years and never tired of her looks or her handling. The hardtop needs two people to remove and put back on again, but I would take it off in April and have the soft top on til around October before returning to the hard top again. The soft was simple to put down and I love how it tucks away, just like the Audi TT (not so much like the MGTF or Beetle, whose soft tops are left out and folded on the back whilst driving). Never had a problem with any aspect of the car, drive, elctronics etc. The only two negative I had with my Streetka were that: 1. The interior is that same as the standard ka, and I feel as a convertible more effort should have been made to make the inside look and feel a little more luxurious. 2.The fuel consumption, as mentioned by previous reviewers, isn't great. I was filling up around every 8-10 days and I only used to car to drive to and from work 5 days a week (15 mins each way). Unfortunately, through no fault of mine or my beloved streetka, some c**** near Gatwick decided to ram me on the junction roundabout crashing me into the steel barrier, the car is now a write off. However, the police were amazed at how well the car handle the impact. The whole passenger side was wedged uder the barrier and crushed, yet myself and partner were able to walk away unhurt and the car from the inside is undamage. I am now on the look out for another one as she was a truly enjoyable little convertible. May she rest in peace.
I have never been one to bother with an in-depth, time consuming cleanse-tone-moisturise routine. I have tried many different face wipes from many different brands and they all either left my skin too dry, too greasy, were too rough, did not remove make-up etc. It is unfair to assume a cleansing wipe will eve remove 100% of makeup and daily dirt build up, but these Simple Oil Balancing wipes do a good enough job as well as helping to balancing and maintain blemish free skin. I tend to use mine once a day, before bed as a quick and easy way of removing my makeup, followed up with a quick splash of water and a different branded liquid facial soap to soften my skin and remove all traces of makeup. These are my favourite, but am just as happy to use all the other Simple cleasing wipes too. Simply amazing.
This is the ONLY product I have found that it both gentle on my skin and actually delivers on its promise. I use this once a day before bed. I remove my makeup with a cleansing face wipe and use the clinique liquid face soap for a more thorough clean. Afterwards, my skin is always left feeling super soft, and that feeling remain right through the night. Unlike some other cleansers, overnight it doesn't increase in moisture on your skin and you don't awaken with a slightly greasey texture. Clinique often have this as one of the samples or as a smaller 'tester' size in many of there treats and offers so if you are unsure, try and smaller bottle to start rather than paying out on a full size. As already mentioned, this really is a fab product and I will continue to use as long as Clinique continue to supply!
I don't suffer from excessive blemishes or acne, but thought this clarifying lotion may help to keep my skin clear and prevent any unwanted outbreaks that can occur at 'that time of the month'. I used the lotion for 5 days morning and before bed. I found it to be a little too harsh on mk skin, it would burn/sting even though my skin was clear at the time and there were no spots. So i can only imagine this would be quite painful for someone who suffers from acne and open spots. I also found that while using the lotion that my skin actually became worse. It may just have been a reaction from my skin and may well have calmed down after continual usage but I find it a bit pointless to use an anti-blemish lotion that GIVES you spots, needless to say I have discontinued using it.
