Praise for Deadlines

“After each stave I was left wanting more … captivated me from the beginning … there are defined cliffhangers that the author uses to make you want to read on the next week – very clever, Mr Brosnahan, very clever!” Crime Book Club

“Fair to say, I’m hooked.” Victoria, Bangor

“The pace is going nice and fast and the stave was read before I knew what was happening, leaving me yet again yearning for next week’s action.” Lance, Liverpool

“You utter bastard. I had to go for a walk to get my heart rate back to normal.” Fearghas, London

“Actual heartbeat racing stuff. Brilliant.” @princessofvp

WHY WE LIKE IT
  • Fast-paced thriller set in the seedy underworld of power and politics
  • A page-turning tale of sex, murder and corruption
  • Fully formed characters, even with their own Twitter handles @jasefitzpatrick

Phantom readers! Hello guys:)

Since last ten days Ago I was able to get a stave daily from The pidgeonhole.

I heard about the story on fb. You get a stave daily and it dissapears after 24 hours. So if you miss a stave, you dont get another chance.

The experience can be bought but I was lucky enough to get a free slot.

I have completed all staves and my review is written below.

REVIEW

Okay. Big thrill. All the promises made about Deadlines was fullfilled. It was fast and I flew by the staves.

It made waiting for the next installment frustrating. I really got into the story and when twists and turns happen, It was agony how personal it felt.

Spoiler Alert!

There are deaths. Deaths about characters youd care about.

I honestly didnt have high hopes because each stave is a 30min read for ten days that seemed to me very minimal to be able to make a good structured, well rounded story…I was wrong guys.

Chris is good.

I had wanted to cuss at him in twitter for being dang good. He hurt me so bad! The story was soooooo good.

The plot did not disappoint. Even to the end, you find out something you would’ve expected but don’t and it ends kinda good kinda melancholic.

The characters are easy to fall in love with. You want them and cheer them on and get scared for them.

On the final chapters, all I had wanted was for them to succeed.

The little extras you get like the picture of jason and other pictures that are featured in each stave is a great touch.

Im just gonna end up gushing. I swear. So final words,

The story has adult themes so caution for younger readers. With maturity ot wouldnt be hard to handle.

It isnt graphic or anything which is alright because its main genre is thriller and mystery.

If you get the chance to read Deadlines, I urge you strongly. Go and take it.

Rating: 4.9/5

The point one is because i didnt want a certain character dead and I wouldve liked this character to die differently.

PRODUCT REVIEW

Initial review: Olay skin whitening bar with rose and milk.

My Dear Phantom Readers, Welcome to another product review!

As I had mentioned I was gonna purchase this soap and try it out. This is only an initial review. Ill have an update on results in a month or so’s time.

In this post, we will look into Olays new one wash wonder Beauty Bar.

I got mine in Watsons branch Maysilo beside chowking.

Before going for any product, I ensure that Its mostly a success from reviews online and testimonials that come from legit sources. I have eczema, So I cant just use anything willy nilly. My skin is uber sensitive so that would be a factor you guys may wanna know about.

OLAY
Products

Olay products have received praise from top beauty and skin care experts across the country. Today, Olay continues to hold to the philosophy it was founded on: to maintain a deep understanding of women’s changing needs and to combine products that fit their needs with the latest advances in skin care technology. The end result—superior product performance women have come to expect from Olay.

About

Olay is a skin care brand with 60 years of experience in helping women look and feel beautiful, so they can challenge what’s possible for their skin.

Mission

Olay is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. Yet through all the changes and innovations, the philosophy upheld by Olay’s founder, Graham Wulff, remains just as relevant as ever: Help women look and feel beautiful. That’s a potent formula for success.

 Company Overview

We’re passionate about making a difference in your skin—we have been from the very beginning. Read our story below, explore offers on breakthrough products, and get an inside look at Olay.

Olay is a product truly born from love, as it was created by a man as a gift for his wife. In the 1950s, chemist Graham Wulff saw his wife Dinah’s frustration with the thick, waxy beauty creams that came in shoe-polish tins. They left her skin looking greasy, and they certainly didn’t fit with her feminine sensibility. Graham wanted to create a new beauty product for her— one that could not only moisturize her skin, but also leave her feeling beautiful and feminine.

Together, Graham and Dinah fine-tuned everything from absorption and texture to the delicate pink shade and instantly recognizable fragrance. At last, the legendary Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid was born.

With his formula complete and the first batch mixed by hand, Graham enlisted the help of an advertising agency that he found in the Yellow Pages. Account executive Jack Lowe quickly became Graham’s lifelong friend and business partner, and the two soon created a company to produce and market Oil of Olay.

Within five years, Olay was enjoying phenomenal success in South Africa, and in 1959 expanded into England, the United States, the Netherlands, Canada and Germany. Needless to say, the Olay business flourished. Eventually, Olay was sold to Richardson Merrill, which later became Richardson-Vicks. In 1985, Procter & Gamble bought Richardson-Vicks and gained the Olay brand.

In 2000, Procter & Gamble decided to shorten the brand name to Olay. The formula had evolved over the years, and the original name no longer fit with what women have come to expect from Olay—a light, greaseless formula that absorbs quickly into the skin.

Price: Php100 (Watsons sale price of buy two take one free)

Regular bar price in watsons is Php50 .

I think prices differ depending on where you buy them.

Review:

The soap bar like L’amour was also a very pretty pink color that comes in a prettily designed box. I got the rose with milk which had appealed to me for the reason of the pink XD. It comes in two other variants, one with papaya and another with vitamin C. It had a wonderful scent.

Below are just pics of my tighs from the first wash. It’ll take you a while to see the fifference but I do see some lightening

After.

I have used it trice now, I did not experience any negative reactions. I was still cautious around skin portions with eczema thought. The soap is pretty mild and lathers and foams upreally well. A downside for me would be he size of the bar, which for the price I think is not proportionate, and the feel of my skin after washing.

For me, It gave off that soapy feel similar to how safeguard would feel but of milder intensity.

The scent though stays long after a wash

The promise of whitening after one wash was indeed true. However like L’amour, it wasn’t very significant. I had to study my skin well to tell the difference.

Pros:

●Mild

●Not too slippery when held

●Very pleasant scent that stays after the wash

● Whitens after every wash

●No bad skin reaction or allergies (Though I notice some slight micropeeling as you often get from some whitening soaps)

Cons:

●Price is a bit too pricey for its size.

●Whitening isn’t very noticable at first.

●Gives of a soapy feel after wash sinilar to safeguard.

Rating: 4.5/5

Will I repurchase? So far I lean towards yes but I will give the final verdic when I update this review.

Debut and Jumpyard!

Phantom readers! Hello all!

Happy 4th of july to those celebrating it and still on the 4th of july..

The past two days have been awesome!!!

An old elementary friend of mine had her 18th birthday debut. I was part of her 18 treasures. I had an absolutely fun time despite having to dance for 10 seconds in front of everyone as punishment in a game…

The food was awesome! There was fish fillet, chicken teriyaki, beef, pastas, cheesecake, silvanas and cupcakes; other guests were old friends as well, with the mouth watering food, ambiance, music and photobooth, we had overall amazing time.

Yesterday….i had finally finallyyyyy went to jumpyard!

FINALLY.

Been excited for weeks! Been wanting to go for months and months!

We went on a monday so lines were short, it was smooth, 100pesos cheaper and well I was with my old highshool friends.

5 of us enjoyed an hour of jumping. I was the only girl but still, i can rough house with the boys fine.

It wasnt at all awkward or anything even after not seeing them for two years prior.

I had so much fun and we ate in burger king afterwards.

Always say yes to a 4 cheese bacon whopper, guys. Oh and a side of fries and hersheys pie for dessert!

The pie. You need pie.

I missed those amazing guys and it was just wonderful. I had a really great time.

I wanna go there again preferably with them again too. I really recommend visits to parks like these.

Esepcially when youre young and able to exert lots of energy. The boys got tired within a few minutes XD

We werent able to take pictures because we were busy having fun and I think thats perfectly okay. We all agreed the it was awesome and the memories we made are worth it all.

Id write more on it but Im in need of sleep XD

Have an awesome day out there. See you guys
