5.0 out of 5 stars Me Before You...bring tissues!, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Me Before You (Paperback)
Check out the fact that this book has no 1* ratings!!! Read the book and you'll see why.
I'm not going to say anything about the story except for this:
I took this book on holiday with me.
I laughed. A lot.
I wasn't expecting it to end the way it did.
I cried my eyes out!
I finshed this book just before going out for the evening while on holiday and my friends were asking me why i had red rimmed eyes!
Best 'chick lit' ish book i've read in years.
Read it.
You won't regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really disappointed this time, 7 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a massive Davina dvd fitness fan and have all of hers bar the pregnancy one!
I was so excited getting this but i have to say i'm really disappointed.
The warm up didn't even get my heart rate up at all.
I found the fatburner/aerobic section so repetetive and boring that i had to quit half way through. Come on guys, surely you can think of more motivating moves after how many dvd's?
The only section i really like is the Bootcamp section that Mark takes. This part works the whole body with toning and cardio moves and is different from some of their other stuff so it's not boring.
The small target sections were okay. But they flow really fast and while you're trying to do the moves and count, Davina has flipped over and is onto something else! Not much time to change position...Also, i found that these sections are not all the same length.
I keep going back to Superbody, Fit and High Energy 5 for a proper workout.
Now i know everyone has their own opinion, so please just see mine as that. You can't please everyone all of the time but i'm still going to buy the next dvd from Davina (whenever that comes out) as i do believe that her, Jackie and Mark put some great things out there.
This just isn't one of them for me unfortunately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cuticura Sensitive Cleansing Wipes, 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased these because i was looking for a face wipe that wasn't perfumed and kind to the skin.
Everything i've seen in high street chemists were much more expensive than these so firstly, they're a bargain for £1.49 including p+p.
Secondly, they do what they're supposed to do. Leave my face feeling clean and refreshed, removing make up and daily grime (i use a separate eye make up remover so don't know if the wipes remove mascara)
They don't leave my skin feeling dry or tight either, just soft and clean.
I would definitely buy these again and recommend them to anyone that has sensitive skin.

4.0 out of 5 stars It really is a miracle product!, 3 May 2012
This spray is the only thing that will help get the comb through my tangled, frizzy curly hair.
It was recommended to me and i've never looked back.
Simply wash and condition hair as normal, towel dry, spray as much or as little as you need of It's a miracle leave in spray and comb...simple as that.
I don't use the other products in this range yet but thinking about the shampoo and conditioner.
The only reason i'm not giving it 5 stars is that for the size of the bottle it should be cheaper!
But highly recommended. And yes, it smells lovely!

4.0 out of 5 stars Small hanging Wasp Trap - MIND THE STRING!!, 3 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading the good reviews on here i thought i'd give it a go.
My bedroom window is right next to a huge pine tree where many wasps seem to accumulate, resulting in lots of said wasps squeezing in through my bedroom window cracks and hanging out and partying in my bedroom!
I put some cider in the trap and hung it from the string from the window handle and waited....and waited....
At first i thought maybe it's acting more as a deterent...after a good many hours i only had 1 measly little fly swimming around....i went to bed.
The next morning i open my blinds to see at least 3 wasps drunkenly flailing about....happy's working!
3 days later and a few more had flown in to enjoy the party....
Day 4, much to my horror i opened my window to empty the trap and the string suddenly broke and the trap fell to it's untimely death from my second floor window...not so happy.
I am just about to order another one, but anyone else buying one of these, MAKE SURE THE STRING ATTACHED TO THE TRAP IS VERY SECURE!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Secret..Works for me!, 15 Aug. 2011
This review is from: The Secret (Hardcover)
After a really 'down' phase in my life that i just couldn't shift, a friend of mine recommended me to read The Secret. Now, i'm not usually one for these new agey positive thinking kind of books but with all my positivity zapped i thought what the hell.
I am so glad i took my friends advice on this!
From practically page 1 i felt a sudden excitement of what i could do myself by just changing the way i think. I've always been a 'glass half empty' girl and never tried to see 'the best' of things when i'm feeling down but i was determined to start doing something to make me feel better about my life.
And reading this book was it.
I can't praise it highly enough and even still when i get the odd 'down' moment i think back to what iv'e read and it really does help me to change that - to a +.
I know it sounds cheesy, but it's become my new bible and i keep reading bits over and over again and it helps very much.
It's a simple method, like attracts like and tho i could have thought about that one myself it's the push i needed to sort my feelings out.
Buy it, you won't regret it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Drivel!, 3 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: So Long Mr. Wrong! (Paperback)
Sorry, but this book just didn't do it for me.
Couldn't relate to the characters...the story or anything.
Took it on holiday with me thinking it would see me through and i only got just under half way...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Everyone's opinion differs tho, so if you like it..hey ho!

4.0 out of 5 stars Jillian does it again!, 24 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I workout regularly and i was looking for something new and more challenging.
This dvd certainly fits the bill!
The 7 circuits had me totally sweaty and knackered by the end and i really did feel ike it worked every muscle in my body. The music could be a little more inspiring but to be honest, you're too busy breathing and trying to get thru the circuit to really pay attention to that!
The only reason i'm not giving this 5 stars is because i feel the warm up needs to be slightly longer to really warm up those muscles coz she works em hard!
I also bought No More Trouble Zones and as soon as i give that a go i'll post back.
Same with Yoga Meltdown!
I recommend Jillian's dvd's to anyone serious about getting fit and staying fit.

Received this yesterday, plugged it into my really old tv using the scart lead and hey worked fine! I admit that the dvd tray does feel a little flimsy but i will make sure i'm gentle with it. It seems easy enough to use. I hope it lasts as long as my little matsui player did for the price. Will report back if it all goes pear shaped!

5.0 out of 5 stars I AM SO LOVING THIS!, 16 April 2010
This review is from: Davina Fit [DVD] (DVD)
I have to admit, this wasn't doing it for me when i first gave it a go. But being the Davina addict that i am i persevered and i have to say, i'm loving it now. I don't know why i didn't initially love it like i did her others...maybe some of the new exercizes scared me a little...! The Aerobic Fit section is harder than you think. Simples moves repeated but does work up a sweat!
Kick Fit is my favourite section. I AM LOVING THIS SO MUCH. Just as i'm really getting into it, it's over...(i do KF twice) and the music for the whole dvd, best yet, really motivating.
I would say that the Bottom Fit part is my least favourite, due to the fact that 200 plie squats seem a bit excessive to me and does bore me a little due to it's repetative nature but the Top Fit section is good working all areas of your top half and the Yoga stretch although a bit short to be able to really relax into it is a welcome addition.
Over all i definitely recommend this dvd and add it to my Davina collection without reservation.
(more Kick Fit please!!)
****REVISED 2/6/2010****After using this now for a while i've fallen even more in love with this dvd. It really does have some of the best music to workout to and after trying several of other people's workouts i keep coming back to this for more.
I really can't wait to see what Davina's next workout will be like, if it's anything like this it will be another sure fire hit. Way to go Jackie and Mark!!! xxx******
