5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping from the start, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An insight in to the early years of Prof Byron as a trainee Clinical Psychologist, The Skeleton Cupboard is a fascinating and thought provoking read. From the hardship of experiencing her grandmother's brutal murder to her journey through the various placements- it's gripping.

Very well written, some dark humour along with some poignant stories provide an insightful glimpse into the world of clinical psychology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delighted with this screen protector. Very tough, as the name suggests, it withstands surface scratches extremely well. I love that you can barely tell there's a screen protector on the phone.

Very good instructions which when correctly followed, gives a perfect finish.

The dust removal tape is a godsend and prevents any bubbles.

Would have liked a front and back protector rather than two front protectors, but it's good to have a spare.

Highly recommended


OtterBox Defender Case for iPhone 5 - Black
OtterBox Defender Case for iPhone 5 - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Very tough- but not tough enough to survive being ran over by a car, 8 April 2014
Bought this as I am extremely accident prone and wanted to look after my brand new iphone 5s. I bought a genuine otterbox elsewhere as I found it cheaper than on here and in the colour I wanted (Glacier). I must say how well built it is. The plastic case fits around the phone perfectly and the screen cover doesn't create any annoying bubbles and the touchscreen is still just as responsive. The silicone case is grippy but not annoyingly so and will still slide in and out of your pocket with little effort.

However.....after a week and a half of owning my iphone, I left it on top of a friend's car, they drove off, it fell of the car and got ran over by the cars that were following it. Unfortunately, the iphone didnt survive- the screen was completely smashed and the frame was bent around the power button.

Thank goodness for insurance!

All in all a great product- but don't expect miracles!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to apply & remove, leaving a deep mirror like shine., 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't tell you how easy it is to apply and remove this wax. Not only this- the result is astounding! It leaves a deep, mirror like shine that lasts. I prepped the car really well- washed, clayed, machine polished then waxed using this and the result is incredible. Water and dirt doesn't stick to the car- it just runs off. I've added a photo of my car roof two weeks after waxing.

Brilliant product- highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant product, 10 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the detailing enthusiasts out there, this is an essential piece of kit. Iron X removes fallout and road contamination (specifically iron deposits) that can't be removed by clay barring or polishing. I routinely clay/polish/seal/wax my car so was astounded at the amount of fallout on my car.

Apart from the horrible smell, it really is a fantastic product. Spray it on after you've washed your car, and leave it for 3-5mins. Your car will begin to turn red, where the Iron X is dissolving/removing the surface contaminants. Rinse and wash off and you're ready to clay, polish then wax/seal.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good heat when it gets going- but a pain to set up, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zippo Hand Warmer (Sports)
If you don't mind a bit of hassle to get the thing going then it's well worth the investment.

The hand warmer itself is very difficult to fill with lighter fluid as you have to pour the fluid onto a flat wick underneath the catalitic burner, so if you accidentally pour to fast, lighter fluid goes everywhere.
The meauring cup provided is pretty useless as it never pours a steady flow. I now guestimate how much lighter fluid to use and pour it straight from the zippo can on to the wick- not ideal.

Once you've filled it with lighter fluid and replace the catalytic burner, it is relatively easy to light (although not necessarily easy to tell when it's lit as there is no flame). I have found that the catalytic burner falls off easily though, so I have to put it back on and relight it.

It produces a good steady heat and will last for hours and hours. The smell produced is only really noticeable when indoors, so that's never been a problem.

The heat given off is better than that of the disposable and chemical reaction hand warmers, so well worth the investment if you don't mind the initial setup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the ipad my friend was expecting, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a joke present. Unfortunately I couldn't afford a real ipad so I bought this and gave it to a friend.

Unfortunately, it doesn't have facetime, safari, a camera or all the other bells and whistles you would expect of an ipad, but there is an actual eye pad in there. Can't complain. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars The dogs love it!, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great bed! Looks so comfortable and the dogs clearly love it as they're always on it. Very easy to clean- it's been through the wash several times thanks to my pup using it as a toileting area- great! Thankfully we've cracked that now! However, it would have been good to have some sort of waterproof backing behind the sheepskin as whenever the dogs get on it and they're wet, it seeps through to the matress, which if washed, takes an age to dry! Only a minor quibble though- on the whole I'm delighted.
