      An excellent cheap and lasting foundation for daily use

      I love make up and this is best foundation I have found to date. Its not an expensive range as I find so many really expensive ranges are a waste of money and simply contain quite volatile ingredients which are not environmentally freindly and many are tested on animals. However this foundation is thick enough to rest on the face all day but thin enough to glide on easily and not looked caked in any form. I love the fact that this foundation lasts all day and actually covers and conceals across the face and glides any blemishes and is a good dermatological foundation so doesnt irritate the skin in any shape or form. At a price of approx £10 you cant beat this foundation for cove and cost and longevity. Only a tiny amount is needed to cover the whole face and therefore its worth of money is brilliant as well as you get your moneys worth and it is still a cheap price. Available in most supermarkets and all good chemist stores.

      An excellent tarot card for the experienced reader

      These tarot cards are beautiful, beautifully illustrated and and hold alot of information within each card. These cards however are not for the novice in tarot reading and learning or teaching cards as they are highly complex and need a lot of resource within the mind to be able to read them well. I started off with the ryder waite cards which are very simple o use and were made for teaching cards but these cards are ones to get further along the line and they have detailed readings for each one with detailed information. Thorough readings can be given within these cards and also they seem to be more psychically powerful than others I have noticed. The main box comes with a great book full of detailed interpretation of each card and also a historical resemblance for each one which is rare with tarot cards and usually the cards only come in the cards themselves without the book so this is an extra bonus. The cards cost about £25 with the book which is expensive but worth every penny for the quality of cards they are.

      A cheap and thin noodle which has its purpose

      These noodles are very cheap at approx 11p per packet and they are thin so are excellent for soups and broths and I especially like to use them for thai broths with a mixture of vegetables and spices. They also make a very good quick and simple snack by simply pouring hot water on top of them but they have little nutritional value so always try to add something with them or simply use them as a noodle soup or stock base. Excellent for hungry children when they return home from school as they are small enough not to fill them completly before dinner. Flavouring is\always ok within these packets but they are not always very strong and so again add some spice or some extra herbs to add more depth and flavour. Overall a good base but no nutritional value alone. Much thinner than super noodles or egg noodles therefore much better to be a base with something. Can be cooked by water alone, in a pan or in the mircrowave.

      A good shop for budget times but to cheap quality food!

      If you are having a month on a very low budget then this is an ok store to go to food wise however I dont particularly like asda and its products. I find much of the food a little to cheap and they do very little in the range of organic, free range, well this is basically non existant and much foreign food has now been introduced. Its budget for a reason however this is mainly food wise and their clothes can sometimes be very good quality at a very good price. It is also good for toys especially branded toys as they can be a lot cheaper than other stores. Cosmetics and personal hygeine products are always good value and some household cleaning products are great value. Overall this store is good for some food products but mainly I avoid it for food shopping as welfare of animals and environmental issues are certainly not high on their list. The only place to eat within asda is mcdonalds chains which is slightly dissappointing as again there is no healthy option but good for a quick bite to eat every now and again.

      Perfect and healthy vitamin hot chocolate

      I love this product and especially as its not a heavy hot chocolate drink as many can be. In fact its incredibly light and yet creamy enough to feel you are indulging yet its perfectly healthy and full of vitamins also. This dirk can be enjoyed at anytime of the day but I especially enjoy it at night before bed. It has a slight wheaty taste and hence my young daughter does not particularly like this as a hot chocolate drink so bare this in mind especially if you are buying it for children but for adults its perfect. Its a very filling drink so be sure not to have oit before a meal however will make you sleep well as sustains hunger throughout the night if you suffer with this or have eaten little throughout the day. Good light packaging and I find this lasts a while also so is a good and cheap cupboard storer.

      An excellent read, a gripping book with much excitement

      Fifty shades of Grey! well, obviously this book had me gripped and I thoroughly enjoyed it. in fact i would go as far to say I loved every single minute of it and Im rarely into books like this, but it was gripping albeit took a little while to start. There is of course a danger with this booK! Domination and the whole lifestyle of master and mistress and submissive etc, is indeed that, a lifestyle! It is not somthing to start with your husband for it may spice things up and 6 months down the line the intimate side of the relationship has once again gone downhill. it can create excitement for couples that have delved within this genre of sex before, but it has to be with the right person and not just because you are in a couple and you have never done this kind of stuff before. Going back to the actually book however and especially if you have delved within this lifestyle its fun to read and can block out all else in life and is a gripper and Mr grey is every womans dream to a degree!

      Beautiful and spiritual film a good tear jerker.

      This film will have you in tears and there is no doubt about it! If it doesnt then gosh there is some emotional deficiency for there is no one I have known that has not seen this film without crying and especially if you have a daughter it will make you cry even more.! Ok so Im not currently selling this but trust me it is a very beautiful yet barbaric film and yet it shows the love of a family and a fathers love to his dead daughter especially. It also states of the beauty that death is when after our death has taken place, especially if you are spiritual and how beautiful heaven and the afterlife can be, however it also states that the dead can communicate with us and do so through messages and through signs in everyday life. The very best bit of this film is the moral of the story that justice comes in the end and everything comes full circle which is always the case in life. People who do wrong always get their come uppance and this could take anywhere between a few months to a few years if not longer but it always comes full circle.

      Free but needs alot of searching to weed out any decent people

      I have been a member of plenty of fish for some time now and sadly albeit there are obviously some very genuine people on this site it appears there are more than plenty non genuine people and people who are simply looking for one thing and nothing more. The site is full of people who write very shot messages and have little pictures or pictures which are so far back you cannot tell what they look like which shouldnt be acceptable on any dating sites. Many people will also entice you with conversation but then simply stop talking for no reason, its very frustrating and it makes you loose your will to continue on it. At first you can, as a woman get bombarded with messages, so many in fact it is difficult to keep up but then you will find it very difficult to find anyone genuine or worthy on this site and take note many of these people are single for a good reason!

        An incredible film with incredible cast

        This film is utterly superb however if you especially have children and a daughter it will pull on your heart strings chronically and you are more than likely to cry! The story as a basic synopsis is about a teenage girl who gets raped and the father, all of whom are black, goes to seek revenge and kills his daughters rapists. He is then held up in court to assess whether he should go down for their murder. The story involves the ku klux Klan and the political and social difficulties that racism brings in America. It is acutely sad yet with a fantastic cast and also justice does prevail! There are however moments when you simply sit, listen and weep for it is so shocking. One particular prevalent moment in the court room the lawyer talks of the brutality of the rape and knowing it was with a child it makes you think about life, your children and the depth of hatred that society in racism can bring. A true film for thinking and acknowledging life in certain areas of the world.

        Beautiful book based on spirituality through a wonderful story

        I absolutely loved this book for it was spiritual and gave so much spiritual guidance and advice but through a complete story. A book to teach us about following our dreams no matter how hard it is and to not give up following our dreams but to also recognise that sometimes our dreams are right by our side and around us already and we simply need to open our eyes and see them. We usually have everything we need and want and in many cases desire around us but we as humans always want more and this book teaches us that we do indeed need to open our eyes and see the beauty of life around us instead of always searching for more. I could not put this book down and read it within a couple of days and it was the first Paulo Coelho book I read and since have been drawn more and more to his works. Spiritual or not this book is a must for people who feel trapped and unsure in life and even for all who love life.

          The excellent tarot card for beginner and experienced readers alike

          The ryder waite cards are an excellent beginners card for people wanting to learn tarot or learning it. It is used as the original training card and has simple yet detailed paintings on each card with beautiful interpretations and an explanantion book can be also bought. These cards I bought when I was first learning tarot and they are easy to read and have a beautiful inspiring sequence. These cards are the most popular with all tarot readers as they are so simple and therefore give more accurate concise readings. The symbols in each card can be delved into deeply and therefore more meanings can be drawn from them, as well as holding some christian ideology within the symbols. These were originally made in 1901 and consist of 78 cards. Most tarot decks take their inspiration from the original ryder waite cards and hence follow their lead with the waites detailed background and beautiful imagery.

          The beautiful castle with the romantic essence you cant beat

          I was lucky to be able to stay at Lumley castle several times with my partner and it was absolutely beautiful and an utterly elegant experience. After a long drive from London to Lumley the drive is a drag and with long motorways, and of course the unelegance of the northern roads and surrounding area to then drive up the drive of lumley is beautiful and a breath of fresh air. Upon arrival the reception is out of this world with an arched entarnce and original paintings on the ceiling and walls which are worn to show their date. The staircases are original and beautiful with an elegance of their own with lots of quirky hiding holes to explore, which we did resulting in endless fun and adventure. The bedrooms are beautiful and all unique. The first room we stayed in was the best being upstairs in the quarters and with a cosy yet quirky atmousphere and beautiful low beams it was a delight to stay there. Room service was excellent and prompt. The restaurant was beautiful wih delightful and tasty food with a private dining area which again is beautiful. Sending endless hours in the bar you can retreat to cosy corners with fires and snuggle by the fire with a waiter to serve you drinks. The breakfasts are lovely and the masquerade and ancient events are a world of their own. You cannot fault lumley for romantic breaks away and cosy nights in front of fires being pampered. A perfect place for desire and lovers wanting a romantic break away.

            Great for some extra money when needed

            I am relatively new to the whole world of ebay but I have to say in the small time I have been selling on it I have been enjoying the experience and it is always nice to make some money from something that you have hidden away in the back of a cupboard somewhere or for things that you simply don't want or don't use anymore. Ok, so don't expect to make hundreds of pounds if you are selling bits and bobs here and there, but a good amount of money can be achieved if you want to sell items such as clothing, dvds, cds, books, unwanted gifts etc. You can sell in one of two ways either as an online auction where it is always best to set a low starting price to entice watchers in and then a buy it now category where you set a price and people can purchase it there and then without having to wait for the auction to end. I currently only use the auction style listing, as like I say you can start at a low price which makes people want to bid and also its quite exciting to watch the bids go up and see how far you can reach with each item! Setting up an ebay account is easy, and it is easy to add items with most details filled in for you. Try to avoid ebay listing costs as you can get away with listing most items for free, and to avoid them I always put a high postage costs if I want more for a specific item and then explain this in your listing. To sell things like dvds and cds putting a postage cost of £1.00 is always substancial and sometimes you might even make a few pence on each postage cost also. Larger items might be worth weighing and getting a postage cost for before listing it. Overall a great experience and an easy one to sell unwanted items in your house. So dont rush down to the charity shop just yet, see if you can earn yourself a few pounds from this online auction site.

              A great day out and with annuel pass can satisfy kids all year

              Crealy adventure park is a great day out for all of the family and it is based in Sidmouth, Exeter in Devon. It is just as it says an adventure play park basically with large slides, fair rides, pirate ship basically the usual things you would find in any large adventure play park, but this is no thorpe park. This is more so aided towards children and adults that enjoy light fun without hardcore rides. The best ride is probably the water ride, based in a log flume which rides up and then back down a steep slope, warning however, you do get extremely wet! The best bit about this afterwards though is an all body drier where you put 50p in and step inside and it literally is a hairdryer but for the body, its quite the novelty! The park is open everyday from 10am to 5pm throughout the year apart from winter season where it is only open at weekends. Prices start from £4.95 and go up to £10.50. You can however buy an annuel pass which is perfect for parents with kids as it is a wealth of entertainment throughout the year for the children, the children never tire of it either! Food is not in short supply at crealy and most tastes are catered for whether you want a hot dog and chips or some healthy salads and sanwiches are catered for in the restaurant. This is expensive however, and I would reccommend always taking a picnic of food with you, you save money and sometimes it tastes alot betetr to! There is a huge indoor play area for children which is perfect if mums and dads need a break and want to sit and have a cup of tea as the children play and this is aimed from children aged 3 upwards. Overall this is a great family day out and a fun place which adults can enjoy to!

              A magical day out for all the family

              Monkey world is a wildlife centre for monkeys set in Wool, Dorset in the heart of the countryside. The centre has been running for years and it is highly acclaimed for caring for both sick, injured and abandoned monkey's from around the world. The centre is priced at a reasonable rate with single prices starting from £6.50 - £10.50. There do obviously however have discounts for groups, families, OAPs and students. It is a great day out for a reasonable price and you can eat on site also, but there are plenty of areas to have picnics and enjoy watching the monkey's. The park is open from September to June with the following times 10am - 5pm and then July to August 10am - 6pm. The summer is not always the best time to go, obviously it is lovely to walk around in the sunshine and enjoy ice cream, but the best time I have spent at monkey world is when I went in the depth of the winter and is was so quiet the monkey's were completly basing the focus on us and we had so much fun and laughter simply watching them put on shows, running around, enjoying one anothers company and being able to see each and every monkey, whereas this can sometimes be very difficult in the summer when it is so incredibly packed you can miss you on alot. The park is a rescue centre and hence the monkey's and chimps there have been rescued and some are within the medical units which although can be upsetting to read about is absolutely endeering and beautiful to watch as they are happy and they know how they are being treated with respect and care and this is very evident throughout. The park hosts a huge adventure playground which is alot of fun for both children and adult alike as well as well as the large picnic area. Overall this rescue centre is w onderful day out for the family and I have been many times and never fail to want to go back year after year. A supreb park caring for primates and doing their job with exquisite notion.
