Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths Shampoo and Conditioner Review.

My hair was always unruly and with split ends it was unmanageable. After using other shampoos and conditioners, my hair would look bouncy and form knots quickly. But its been a different story with Pantene Beautiful lengths Shampoo and conditioner.  I have seen a substantial difference in the look and feel of my hair. The Pro-V Keratin  formula leave it feel more smoother and softer and reflects a healthy shine. Now I love leaving my hair swaying with the wind. 

The Pantene Beautiful Lengths Strengthening Collection is in support of the beautiful lengths program in Australia - a charity encouraging women to donate their hair that can be used to make wigs for people suffering from cancer and hair loss due to the treatment.  Hopefully I could donate my hair for a good cause soon.

But I feel that the conditioner's fragrance is inadequate.  I would have loved it to be  more strong, emitting the fragrance for a bit longer.  But that is something I am willing to by pass for the effect I see and feel on my hair.  

I love Pantene's Beautiful Lengths Shampoo and conditioner and would recommend it to people who want a healthy feel to their hair.

 Touching lives, improving life. P&G

They are the fearsome vegetable,
They are so infamous, they made it in a fable
Evil little balls of mushy yucky green
They are so scary, they are worn for halloween.
They come in one group when they fight
They are disgusting, makes kids vomit at sight
Peas are like pimples, burst when they pop
They are so yucky, I'd rather eat a sock

They look so innocent, but truly watch out
Whatever you do, don't put them in your mouth
Later when you are not infected by Peas

You'll be thankful and sure to tell"JEEZ"

LG 23" IPS (IPS237L) Monitor Review

I just couldn't wait for the new IPS monitor to be delivered for review. The box comes with a LG monitor which is light and slim, power cord, a CD containing the user guide and installation softwares,  D-Sub cable and a MHL cable.
Installations was pretty simple as all I had to do was push the stand into place and screw it in place. I tried it out with the HDMI cable( unfortunately not provided) but the result was amazing. My computer had no problem recognizing the new monitor and all I had to install was the True colour finder and the Dual package. The colours displayed are superb.. almost real like. The screen was a bit disappointing. Though it hardly has a frame and the screen looks like a cinema screen, it does not seem to be utilizing the whole screen. I finally figured out what was going on - The screen is not fully utilized with the HDMI cable but its ok while using the D-Sub cable. But the output was highly compromised while using the D-Sub cable. 
The super energy saving setup lets you browse guilt free. The touch menu buttons are sometimes a bit of work to manipulate.  Probably I just need to get used to it a bit more. 
The Dual package enables you to control the display on the monitor through the touch menu screen. The Dual Display feature allows you to either clone or extend the display but the most amazing feature was the Dual Web display. It allows you to open two pages at once splitting the screen in half. Its very good for people who want to have a continous display of data while they are doing something else..eg. share market etc. You dont have to keep switching between pages unlike the regular monitors. I for one found this feature extremely useful and was very impressed by it. 
The picture quality is the best you can get and  the cinema screen feature means you can see the image from any angle without any change to the output. I tried lying down as well as going to the far extreme end but my view was the same from all possible angles. It means I can relax or multitask and see the movies from where I like unlike earlier where I had to sit in front of my monitor if I had to see a movie.  
This monitor does not come with its own speakers which is a bit disappointing as I had to hunt for my speakers. 
But in whole the LG IPS monitor is surely set to please the users.

Lest we forget

Hundreds of people in olive-green
Fight together with their might team,
Sweat glistens on their face
Its a huge life- risking chase
Fighter planes are flying in the air
Its like winning the king's lair

Grenades are hidden in the floor
They all can not take it any more
Poppies placed on the death-bed
Rest in peace the innocent dead
They go back home to the place they stay
They are still remembered today.

I've Got Your Number

I received this book for review from Random House Australia and the first impression I got when I read the title was that this novel was something similar to so many others out there. Some bad girl finds some guy's secrets  and is trying to blackmail him or something... but was pleasantly surprised to find that the story was totally not what I expected.

The story line is about a girl, Poppy, who lost her engagement ring and her phone only to find another phone in the bin. That incident leads to her assumably perfect life in tangles. She gets to know Sam, a businessman. The slow flow of emotions and the messaging between Sam and Poppy leads to feelings which they are not sure off.. and with a movie style ending its a must read.

 The book is fun to read and you cant help but fall in love with Poppy and Sam.. 

I've never shared an in-box with anyone  in my life. I didn't expect  it to feel so.....intimate. It's as if we're  suddenly sharing an underwear drawer or something. '

Sophie Kinsella has managed to keep the suspense till the last page. Initially though the story line moves a bit slow for my liking but as you reach the middle, it get difficult to put the book down.

Throughout the book Sophie has footnotes in some pages.. little notes which make a funny read at the bottom of the page.  Though at times, you read the footnote and realize that you didn't see any word that was numbered.

Overall a good book and I would certainly read more of Sophie Kinsella's books.

Coffee is the first thing in the morn' that helps me start my day and so I was excited to be a part of the trial team for Nescafe Cafe menu conducted by Soup Team (soup.com.au) The delight was obvious and I felt like a child in a toy store when I saw the variety of coffee flavours they had send me to taste. I love coffee and just couldn't resist having a cuppa at that very moment. It was difficult to choose one particular flavour.

The sachets are easy to tear and so you don't need to go hunting for a pair of scissors. That's a plus point as I never seem to find my kitchen scissors when needed. The quantity of coffee powder in each sachet is enormous and you can make a large cup of coffee. Its truly a gift for the coffee lovers. All you need to do is add warm water and mix.Its so easy to prepare that my 11 year old prepares a cup for me now and then. I found it a bit on the lower end of sweetness as I prefer my coffee to be a bit more sweet. I need to add extra sugar. The flavour hits you instantly and its close to having coffee we get in cafes. Its thick in texture and leaves you licking your lips in the end.
There are many flavours to choose from and some come with chocolate shakers..yummo

1. Cappuccino (strong, skim or regular)
2. Mocha (regular or skim)
3. Caramel Latte
4. Vanilla Latte
5. Hazelnut Latte
6. Latte

The Caramel by far was my most favourite followed by the Hazelnut Latte. My daughter loved taking a sip or two from my cup too.

I have truly enjoyed my coffee since I received the sachets and can have a flavourful cup when my heart feels like one. Keep tuned as next week I would be hosting a competition worth $150 thanks to Soup and Nescafe. Till then l'm off to have another one.

Mocha..no, Caramel..no. Something in skim...aaah.. its so difficult to choose..
