Brought some DVD’s from Play, my billing address was different to my delivery address as I am at uni,. I got an email saying my payment didn’t go through. Went to my play.com account to change the billing address to the correct address, then it changed my delivery address as well, tried to change it but couldn’t so rang them up straight away, they said it would be sent to by billing address as they couldn’t change it, so now I won’t get my DVD’s till the summer!!!

If you are a fan of ice cream then look no further than Thorntons on the High Street in Halifax. The raspberry cream ice cream coming into store
is a scoop of summer without the sun.
As a regular customer here I have always found the staff to be friendly,
efficient and quick to serve. The portion size is big……and I fear I do look like the greedy one walking out with an enourmous cone of two scoops.
As far as chocolates go, you can do no wrong with their selection boxes which come in one or two layer boxes, in three sizes, from £6. They are not the cheapest boxed chocolates, but they certainly deliver in terms of quality. I really do recommend them, they make a lovely gift.
At Easter and Christmas there are some great seasonal treats, all tried and recommended!

WOW! It’s like Black Friday everyday at this grocery store. No joke. If you like the chaotic grocery store with people lunging at literally the last box of cornflakes, then by all means have at it. Long lines await you after you stock your cart- and imagine having to pay 1 pound for it. You do get it back though. Guess I’m not use to the London way of doing things, but I’m going to have to learn somehow. The one thing that I do like about Sainsburys? It’s humongous! They do have just about everything- kind of like the local Fred Meyer, except a lot more fast paced and crazy.

I have never been excited about shopping, especially in a supermarket but after yesterday’s experience I really had to put a review in.
To put this into context, Milton Keynes is dominated by three Tesco stores who until now had no competition. Yes, there is a Sainsbury’s and Morrison’s but both are too small or to incovenient to get to be good to anyone apart from people near them.
As a result Tesco has had a huge monopoly in the town and we suspect that they were actually ripping us off because for the past month the prices at our Tescos have been falling like nobodies business.
The other good thing for Milton Keynes is that as Asda has a national pricing policy, our petrol prices have fallen in one week from 96.9p to a mere 85.9 in a week!
You’ll therefore excuse me if I have a pecuniary interest in this review because not only is Asda cheap, they have also made life a lot cheaper in rip-off Milton Keynes

Pros: I go in the gamestation about every week, like everytime i visit Derby because i like PC games and they have quite a few.
There are 2 floors to this gamestation and the games are always cheaper than HMV and Game which is really cool.
The staff are really friendly and like to chat about specific things which are relevant to their job which is good. They all seem to look like they like games and alternative music and so they probably enjoy their job.
Everything is usually quite tidy and set out quite well in the shop for ease of browsing.
Cons: The staff can sometimes screw up, especially when they put the wrong pre owned game in the box and then you have to return it.
The older staff are better than the younger student staff

I have bought and thrown out two products under the Whole Foods 365 brand. These products are worse than the lowest level of regular supermarket products. One was the soy milk. It contains fillers and coagulants, so you can’t make a chai with it. Soy milk only needs soy and water. The other is their 365 cranberry sauce: just disgusting. We normally make our own but we thought theirs would do. We would have been better off buying the cheapest commercial jelly. Their brand was too sweet and the cranberries were mush: neither fruit nor jelly. I object to a store using their organic brand name to sell inferior product that would never move off a supermarket shelf. Shame on Whole Foods!
Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7QN
never believed in soul mates or love at first sight or magic until I walked into Harrods. Until I realized it could exist in a place, in a food hall.
When I walked in, I was awed by the variety of food, size of the space, and gorgeous ornamentation on the walls and ceilings. The colorful chandeliers sparkled off the stained glass ceilings, casting a warm yellow haze onto the fromagerie glass cases. It’s like poetry.
We spent a whole 3 hours on the ground floor, just in the food hall. Wandering back and forth between chocolates, meats, and cheeses taking millions of pictures and ooh-ing and aah-ing and then eating in the Harrods cafe where we had high tea.
We’d been looking for a place in the city for high tea that was max 20 pounds, and we found that the Harrods cafe offered an afternoon tea deal for less than 10 pounds, including 2 scones, clotted cream, preserves, and your choice of tea. Delicious and we were stuffed.
I ended up buying Harrods chocolates and macarons from Laduree. Expensive but completely worth it. It makes me think it’d be somewhere Henry Higgins would’ve taken Eliza Dolittle to show her how the wealthy and posh fed themselves. I said to my friend that it was so magical.. it was better than Disneyworld. Better!!!

This huge store is heaven for any art and crafts fan’s. This large store is spread over a huge 2 floors and sells a huge range of products for painters, card makers, sewers and much more.
The tills are located at the front of the store as you walk in and the main item downstairs are for sewing. They sell a large range of flowers, materials, cottons, buttons, sew on patches and more. Towards the back of the store they have children’s crafts such as felt, foam shapes, wooden lolly sticks, craft kits for children and much more such as sequins, different glues and tapes and foam sheets.
There is a lift at the back of the store, but as you walk in you will notice a set of stairs which take you upto the upper floor. On this level they sell a large range of products including books, frames, canvasses, paints, pain brushes and accessories. Card making items such as card blanks, different papers, embellishments and car stock, peel offs, envelopes and much more. Towars the backof the stroe they also sell things like train tracks and other accessories such as platforms and tree’s to make your own railway set at home.
They dont have any tills upstairs which I was a bit surprised by as it means you have to go back downstairs to pay for your items. They do how-ever have about 5-6 tills downstria snad are quite fast at serving people but there does how-ever normally always seem to be a queue. If you go here at weekends it can be very busy as well.
I have been here a few times and staff haven’t been able to find prices for certain items and they have to look the items up. Seeing as this was a time when I bought lots of different papers and card blanks for card-making this took ages and i was probably at the till for about 15mins or more, so in the end decided to leave everything because it was just taking too long.
They do have some great offers here and some of the prices of the items are very good, how-ever there are some certain items which I think are a bit over-priced for what they are.
This has plenty of parking and is open 7 days a week, but its best to go in the week to avoid the weekend rush as it gets so chaotic that you can barely move.

With a huge range of cheap yet gorgeous clothes, Primark is a definite stop for shopping. If you just need a plain vest top or t-shirt, then spend your money wisely and get one from here. Also, this shop is bursting with beautiful clothes that look near to designer! Their shoe and bag ranges are huge, and they have plenty of good quality clothes for the office.
My only criticism is that it’s always SO FULL! And it’s always full of prams.
Covent Garden Market, Covent Garden, London WC2E 8RF
So, you are spending the day in London but for whatever reason you have done “the major tourist sights” and can’t see the difference between shopping in Oxford Street and at your out of town mall (other than the fact that it is easier to park, inside, less crowded, more compact but has the same shops). What do you do?
You could do worse than head to that area of London called Covent Garden. Covent Garden is possibly one of the most ill-defined areas of London. Most people think only of the market when they hear the name but in truth the area spreads further than that, out to Leicester Square to the west and the Strand to the south, Covent Garden is as spread out as it is diverse and there truly is something for everyone here.
The joy of Covent Garden is that there is a well defined starting point, Covent Garden Station accessible from the Piccadilly Line (the navy blue one!). One word of warning, Covent Garden tube station is one of the deepest on the underground network and access to the street is via one of four cavernous lifts. This can lead to congestion at the station (and indeed, on Saturdays the station is exit only from 1300 1700 due to the large numbers of people visiting the area). Don’t forget that you will need your ticket immediately you exit the lift so be prepared or you could get trampled! There are stairs to street level but there are an awful lot and you are warned at the base of the staircase not to attempt the climb unless you are sure. The alternative for those who can’t use lifts (or for getting back if the station is closed) is to use Leicester Square station (also on the Piccadilly Line, Northern Line and Bakerloo Line) which is a mere 0.16 miles as the crow flies (or the track lies!) from Covent Garden. Just follow the black signs!
