I'm a litigation solicitor with a 12 year old daughter. I like writing in a critical fashion, in the genuine hope that it might help persuade people to make sensible purchases, and to avoid wasting their money on goods which are of poor quality.

As most of us know, Lara Croft is an adventurer and treasure hunter, the female equivalent of Indiana Jones. Angelina Joliet has the lead role. Dr Jonathan Price (played by Ciaran Hinds) is a murderous arms designer and dealer, who, assisted by a Chinese gang akin to the Triads, wants to get hold of the Cradle of Life (Pandora's Box), the world's ultimate weapon. A football sized golden globe is the map leading the way to Pandora's Box, which the Chinese gang snatch out of Lara's possession.

Molton Brown make luxury toiletries, which are a serious indulgence, but I think worth it. This is a very refreshing and stimulating body wash, which is nicely packaged.

I use this body wash as a treat on weekend mornings, it has a very nice, vaguely minty scent, which gets you perked up first thing in the day. If you know a guy into his toiletries, this makes for a really nice gift.
I think that Scarlett Johansson is probably the most alluring of all current Hollywood actresses, a lady who is not only impossibly beautiful, but a first rate actress to boot (I've just watched her sci-fi horror film, Under The Skin, and she was magnificent in her role). She's the modern day equivalent, of a very long line of actresses who are world renowned for their beauty, including ladies such as Marilyn Munroe, Catherine Deneuve, Jane Fonda, Natassja Kinski, Bo Derek, and Emmanuel Beart. I love the outfit which she wears in this image, and if I was back in my long lost student days, this poster would definitely have been one of the images bedecking my walls.
