Really nice after shave for my husband.
We both love the aroma of this.
The lovely smell seems to last ages on him.

Great price for a 90ml bottle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Sure, 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Yes, this kettle is well made. Most are. It looks fine and chunky.Most do.

Why does this kettle not show the level of water when filling?

Why does this kettle have such a large spout, so that the water spills out when pouring?

These two specifications are a must when buying a kettle.

In my opinion Igenix have failed.

AmiGami Tropical Bird & Beach House

Wow!!!!!!!!!!What a fantastic present for my niece.

Beautiful and vibrant

I am a big fan of this brand of kids craft figures.

My 5 year old niece loves them to.

There is no end to her imagination with this.
It keeps her engaged for ages and whilst initially this is a toy/craft it really does stretch a 5 year old's imagination.

It comes in very nice packaging. This will be a present for her birthday, and she will LOVE it.

Great product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Murder, Mayhem and Music, 16 Feb. 2015
The Strings of Murder is the first book in a new series following Inspector Frey and Detective McGray as they investigate crimes around Victorian Britain and if this tale is typical of them I will be adding them to my wish list!

Told in the first person by Inspector Ian Frey, who we learn has in the past started and abandoned both medicine at Oxford University and Law at Cambridge University but when he recently uncovers an infamous murderer in London he feels he has found his forte in the CID.

"A mark on the wall, the contents of a wallet, a lock of hair ..... a glove carelessly left behind ... those tiny details of everyday life, things that the ordinary man would never normally ponder on, were our tools, and most of the time sufficient to allow us to draw a full picture of victims and aggressors.....in short, their innermost darkest secrets were at hand if one knew just how to read the world around.
How thrilling, how fascinating that game was. Finally, I'd found my place. Proved my value."

But, a new man at the head of Scotland Yard sends Frey to Edinburgh as they fear another Jack the Ripper in Scotland. He meets Detective Adolphus McGray and, to say they don't meet eye to eye is an understatement! Frey thinks McGray's an idiot and McGray thinks he's a soft Southerner and proceeds to call him a lassie from then on.

Of course, they work well together, even though they are such opposite characters, to try and discover the perpetrator of several puzzling and gruesome murders, their exchanges were funny some of the time and some of McGray's contacts were dodgy most of the time. With twists aplenty and a good strong plot featuring the occult, devil worship, a clairvoyant and an impossible puzzle, I really enjoyed this mystery and was constantly changing my mind as to who the murderer was. I also loved the atmosphere of horror that the author conjured up.

I thought the book cover was perfect - it sums up the story very accurately to me.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is one huge cleaning machine.

Please note. This is not a vacuum cleaner.

This machine is heavy. It can also be cumbersome.

It is also a very, very good cleaning machine.

Do not spend money with contract cleaners.

Buy this machine and clean your carpets yourself.
Use this anytime anywhere. ( almost ).The stairs may be tricky but not impossible.
All the attachments are in the box. The machine fits together really well and easy.No tools are needed.

It also comes with some cleaning detergent, so all you will need is water.

I cleaned a bedroom carpet and a dining room carpet, with ease. And what a difference there was. Truly brilliant.

This cleaning machine will prove to be a good investment.
I am sure that I will use this machine again and again. I will also loan this to family and friends.

Brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really cared about the characters, hidden identities, dual time narrative, guilty secrets, 15 Feb. 2015
This review is from: The One I Was (Kindle Edition)
I think I have read all of Eliza Graham's novels and I've loved and enjoyed them all, including this latest novel.

I love her simple writing style, her individual characters and the way she makes you care about them.

The One I Was begins with Rosamond's arrival at Fairfleet to nurse terminally ill Benny Gault, a German refugee who now owns the large house that belonged to the family who took him in in 1939.

I was absorbed from the start and wanted to know what Benny's guilty secret was, how does Rosamond know Fairfleet and what is her guilty secret?

The story goes back and forth in time for both Benny and Rosamond's early years to the present day.

Benny and I had both known early trouble. And we'd both found ways of insulating ourselves from discomforting echoes: he in this old country house with its sweeping views and fine furniture, me in my minimalist flat with its few starkly fashionable pieces.

As Benny opens up to her about his life at Fairfleet during the war, Rosamond also starts to unburden herself of her guilt. This is a story of hope, hidden identities, friendships, redemption and forgiveness.

There were a couple of inconsistencies in the story that annoyed me, although it didn't spoil the overall storyline it did make a difference to how I felt about the book overall, it is more a four star than a five star.

Ending on a positive note, I learned some interesting facts about the war and, especially about the women pilots (which I had not know about before) who flew planes from airfield to airfield to supply the RAF against Hitler as he moved across north-west Europe.

If you're looking for an easy read, set before and during WWII and present day, has believable characters with secrets, an old country house, a story full of suspense that will intrigue and fascinate you, then consider adding this to your list.
