Pasante Naturelle Condoms - Pack of 12
Pasante Naturelle Condoms - Pack of 12
Price: £4.34

5.0 out of 5 stars Pasante Naturelle - Good everyday condoms with a little extra room at the head., 30 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Naturelle range is identical as far as i can see to the regular condoms sold by Pasante in both size/shape and lube used, if there is a difference then i'd love someone to explain what it is!

Note that the tit end has a bulbous shape which makes these easy to put on, the lube is non greasy and the latex used is transparent and doesn't have any odor. This is a 12 pack, each condom is individually wrapped in foil and the use by date was over 4 years which was good to see.

VERDICT: Not much else to say except the girlfriend isn't pregnant as yet! Delivery was quick and packaging was excellent. If you want standard sized condoms but with a little extra room at the tip yet a sighter fit around the base then these are for you. No frills with these, just good quality standard condoms! For peace of mind these come with a CE certification and are Kite-marked so meet UK and Worldwide standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little chip perfect for everyday PC's or casual gamers!, 29 Nov. 2015
Having recently built a gaming system using this CPU i can tell you that this little chip is mightily impressive and offers excellent value for money or as the Americans say bang for your buck!

This is a 3.7GHz Core i3 Processor (2 cores with 4 threads). You will need a LGA1150 socketed motherboard and although it isn't necessary i would recommend you pick one with a Z97 chipset especially if you intend to do any gaming. The Motherboard i used was a Asus Z97M in Micro ATX form factor as the person i was building the computer for wanted something more compact. In combination with some good quality memory like the Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB 1600MHz DDR3 CL9 and this thing absolutely flies along on day to day tasks such as web browsing and word processor although it was never designed for things like video rendering so if that is your intention then i suggest you either look elsewhere (like a good quality i5). Note that i also used a Samsung 850 evo SSD which does dramatically improve speeds in applications like Internet Explorer.

For gaming though, where most games are Graphics card intensive this CPU is ideal and will comfortably suit anyone looking to game at the coveted 1080p @ 60fps. On games that are more CPU bound such as Crysis 3, you will see a drop off in frame rates to the 20's depending on the graphics card you use and in-game settings applied.

In combination with a GTX960 or R9 380 for example this will be ideal for anyone looking to game day to day at the 1080p resolution mark. For £85 (at time of purchase) you will be hard pressed to find a better processor in this price bracket, Also worth nothing that this chip is NOT overclockable as the multiplier is locked.

Inside the box you get the CPU, an Intel CPU fan cooler which is idea for most casual gamers or people looking to build a standard PC. You also get an Intel sticker and warranty information. A word of caution, when you get the box DO NOT cut through the label side of the box, instead open the flap on the other side without a label covering it as cutting the label voids the CPUs warranty (which they never tell you about until you need to return it).

5.0 out of 5 stars A.C. Almost Naked with "Show-It" Brief - Enhancing, sexy and comfortable!, 28 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First thing first, this item was packaged incredibly well but also dispatched and delivered very speedily.

I have numerous Andrew Christian underwear but this is the first i have purchased through Amazon.

I absolutely love the colour ways, blue and black is very masculine yet the yellow and pink strips on the front really make these pop. The waistband is quite conservatives to look at as far as most Andrew Christian underwear goes but i wanted something like that rather than bright neon lettering.

Sizing is spot on and accurate to the guide on the Andrew Christians website so i recommend you go off that rather than the one Amazon use. The material is SUPER soft and incredibly comfy, very similar to microfibre material in looks and stretch yet even softer against the skin. It's always the little things that make underwear pop. Contrast stitching in this case and the little yellow tag on the front make these look uber trendy and sexy. Also the fact that the label has been stitched on the waistband sideways makes a difference and means you don't need to remove it because it never interferes with the wearing experience.

Moving to comfort, these sit on the hips but below the waist, i have to compliment Andrew Christian on these for a few reasons, firstly the "almost naked" part of these is everything except the pouch, meaning when you wear these you genuinely don't notice them. The second area is the pouch itself. This is the "show-it" part. Imagine a pouch within a pouch and that is how these have been designed with enough room for well endowed men, not only is it INCREDIBLY comfortable and supportive but it does give an ENHANCING look. Wearing anything but jeans and you will be showcasing a bulge at the front, trust me on that! I tried wearing these under suit trousers and the bulge was too much to show at work. The pouch has an elasticated edge so if gives and moves with your body.

Definitely date night underwear or for wearing in the bedroom but i wouldn't advise you wear these day to day although you can if you want an enhanced look, perhaps if you are going clubbing or working out down at the gym but going to work in these? Forget it.

VERDICT: Super soft and comfy with lots of support. The "show-it" pouch elevates your manhood which feels totally natural yet enhances the bulge by a few centimetres. Very stylish and sexy yet quite conservative as far as A.C. underwear goes. Sizing is accurate and quality is first class!

If you are looking for stylish yet sexy briefs which offer lots of comfort and support then look no further, the only thing i would ask yourself before you click on the buy button is do you want to enhance your look because trust me these really do!

5.0 out of 5 stars Corsair Vengeance LP Memory, 28 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being low profile memory means it can sit underneath the CPU cooler i have which overhangs the RAM slots. I was upgrading from 4GB to 8GB and from 1333MHz to 1600MHz. There is a slight speed increase to applications opening but the biggest improvement is in the amount of applications and web pages i can have open at once. I can happily have 20 tabs open in my web browser, itunes open and be playing a game at the same time and still have 3GB of memory spare.

Only things worth mentioning are that this is duel channel memory so work in pairs, always match up your memory if you are adding it to existing memory and check the timings, this particular one by corsair is 9-9-9-24 and latency CL9. Only other thing that needs mentioning is when you have installed the memory be sure to go into the bios and enable XMP memory to get the most out of it. Fast delivery from Amazon and came well packaged!

5.0 out of 5 stars Foclassy 3 pair bikini, love the colour and different style bottoms, 25 Nov. 2015
These were a treat from my boyfriend earlier this year for a trip to Greece, i love anything purple so the colour ways are ideally suited to me. I like the fact that you get both a thong and more traditional bottoms. The thong is ideal for tanning on the beach or by the pool and yet if you want to go walking you can simply throw the more traditional bottoms over the top. The top itself ties around the neck and at the back and provided me with good support, if you have bigger than average breasts then possibly look for a separate top.

Overall though i have to rate these highly, you can go out for the day wearing both bottoms and if the mood takes you then simply remove the top pair. Sizing seemed good as was the quality. Would recommend, thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars PS4 Destiny bundle - A great package at a good price, 25 Nov. 2015
This is actually the third PS4 we have bought, the first one i gave to my girlfriend so she can play Lego and Little Big Planet. The second i bought for myself but due to a dry spot in gaming i sold it.

I purchased this as i decided to get back into gaming and because several friends have also decided to get Destiny. I myself played Destiny when it was first released and it must be said that back then it was the biggest flop going. Huge swedes of the content had been stripped out and put into DLC (downloadable content you must pay extra for). Anyway onto this bundle.

You get the latest (CUH-1116A) 500GB Playstation model in the box as denoted by the new all matte black finish as opposed to the two tone matte/gloss look the original console had. Cosmetic differences aside the new console is different under the hood, it runs quieter, cooler and therefore more efficient than before. Ask anyone that has the ORIGINAL PS4 model about the noise and they will tell you that after a few hours of gaming it can sound like a hair-dryer! This model is a different kettle of fish and i'm glad that Sony have improved the efficiency of the console.

So inside the box you get;

1x 500GB PS4 console (all matte black finish)
1x Duelshock 4 controller
1x USB charging cable for the controller
1x mono chat headset
1x Physical boxed copy of Destiny The Taken King Edition
1x Power cable
1x Documentation and warranty

The console itself is a compact design, it both looks and feels sturdy, at the front there is the slot loading blu-ray drive, physical power and eject buttons (they use to be touch capacitive in the original) and 2x USB ports which are ideal for plugging in and charging your controller. On the top there is the blue strip light to indicate the status of the console. Both sides of the console are clear of any buttons, around the back you will find the power port, optical audio port, 1x HDMI, 1x Ethernet port and a proprietary port for the PlayStation Camera.

Setup is quick and easy, you'll be at the home screen within a few minutes once you have created an account and connected to the internet, the console has built in wifi should you be a distance from your router. The home screen is quick and easy to navigate and everything can be accessed with ease. I must praise Sony for the simplicity they have used over the User Interface. It works and works efficiently. You can quickly find friends that are online and start a "party" in order to talk, beside loads of other information at the touch of a button.

The controller is great, good logical layout and the buttons, triggers and thumb sticks have a great tactile feel to them. I do like the fact that the battery is built in so you can charge it each evening using the included cable via the console which makes batteries a thing of the past thank god.

So i love the console, what do i think of the included game Destiny now i've had a few days to get my teeth into it, not forgetting that i did play it when the game first launched!

Well firstly after putting the game into the console it only took a few minutes to install the game before i was off and running, granted i needed to download a small update and the two expansion packs that are included in this bundle but i do like the fact that game installation on the PS4 is super quick.

For those that don't know Destiny is about you being a "guardian" and together with other guardians you must push back against the darkness which has virtually consumed everything. The game is a First Person Shooter with an MMO aspect to it. The game is set across many different planets and worlds and with the expansions included with this bundle and Bungie saying all future content will be free there is hundreds of hours of content now on offer (which there wasn't when the game originally launched).

Firstly graphically this game is stunning and it has the audio both in terms of weapons and on screen carnage but also game music to match. Teaming up with friends is absolutely essential, not only in making progress but also having lots of fun along the way. The shooting mechanic is fantastic too, very Call of Duty/ Battlefield like so most people should immediately feel at home, so should anyone that has played Halo. You get a "sparrow" which is your personal hover vehicle and can transport you across the maps quicker than on foot, alas you can't shoot while travelling. So there are two halves to Destiny, the first is the story which is based online and can be played with friends or strangers or you can even play on your own with no help whatsoever. You collect loot, weapons and other items along the way so you may come across some rare or even legendary items at random moments. There are also "strikes" and "raids" in the story, essentially you team up with other players to complete specific missions with a uber difficult boss battle at the end. Do not attempt these until you are a decent level and have reliable players to help you. The other half is the PvP area where you can play against other players in a Call of Duty style arena, the maps are decent and gameplay well balanced and makes Call of Duty redundant in my honest opinion if you are looking for player vs player action. I cannot stress just how different Destiny looks and feels compared to how it was at launch. Compared to then this is much improved and in contrast is far more enjoyable.

Verdict: This is a great gaming bundle, get yourself PlayStation plus membership and you're sorted. I'm glad i decided to get back into gaming and playing with friends and being more social is always a good thing. Recommended and hope you enjoy this as much as i am!

2.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars Battlefront - The Publishers strike back!!!, 21 Nov. 2015
If it wasn't for the graphics and audio then this game would have gotten one star. When you take everything together this game is nothing short of disgusting value for money.

As someone that played the beta i was really expecting a lot from this game, instead what i found VERY QUICKLY was that the so called beta was in fact a demo. A demo which pretty much showcased 90% of the game. Sure there are solo missions (which are pathetic) and yes the maps online are great but 4, is that it??

Weapons are great and the shooting mechanic has been taken from Battlefield 4 so feels good but the variety of content is so poor you don't get to enjoy it to its full potential, online you'll be running around the map and in the skies above you with be air to air warfare at its best, sadly you can't join them, it's just background animation to liven the map up. Oh and AI bots just like in Titanfall are pathetically rubbish!

The game is bare-bones and shouldn't be marketed at £40, more like £20 for what is on offer. £40 of my hard earned money that i won't see again and make no mistake the game simply isn't worth it. Why can't EA design a full game rather than these half baked attempts.

In a nutshell this game was designed to rob the true star wars fans of their money by pulling on our heart strings. Strip the audio and graphics and the battlefield style shooting mechanic away and you are left with a game that's more basic than Titanfall.

Shame on you EA! Take my advise and save your money, paying decent money for this will only encourage developers and greedy publishers to produce more games like this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sporty and sexy briefs with LOTS of support!, 15 Nov. 2015
This is the latest addition to my growing collection of designer underwear and will probably be the last for a while unless something "to die for" comes along.

Sexy and comfy with lots of support. Ideal for both working out or as daily underwear. The "show-it" pouch is both enhancing and supportive. Would recommend to anyone that likes a brief design with more with-it colours. Sit low on the waist and material is soft against the skin. Sizing is slightly smaller around the waist than the guide recommends but for most i'd stick with what the guide says on the A.C website.

Definitely one to get if you're a brief fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate HIGH GLOSS finish!, 14 Nov. 2015
The only paint i use on interior wood including skirting boards, door frames and doors themselves.

Being oil based gives it lasting durability and the "high gloss" look cannot be overstated enough, As far as the finish goes nothing will touch this paint. However, the reason for only 4 stars rather than 5 is hardly anyone talks about the three downsides to this paint. First is the smell, it will stink your house out for days even if you open windows and use the old onion trick so be warned, you certainly can't sleep in a room that you painted within 48 hours!

Second is that this paint drips BADLY but because the paint is so thick and sticky the drip marks and paint droplets form over the course of 5-20 minutes, so you will find yourself painting a door and everything looking good, going away and painting something else only to come back in 20 minutes and the door is covered in drip lines and tiny droplets of paint, no you haven't put too much on!!! It's just how this paint is and has remained the same over the years i have been using it.

Thirdly, it stays tacky for hours and hours. Allow a full 24 hours before you go touching the surface but understand that the paint underneath the surface will still be wet even then!

VERDICT: If you want the ultimate "HIGH GLOSS" finish then make no mistake this is the best you can buy and is the main reason i keep coming back, you have to accept the downsides and realise that getting the best results may cost you extra time and effort. Two pieces of advise for anyone thinking of purchasing, stir the paint incredibly well before you use it and stir it again every 15 minutes or so otherwise the oils start to come to the surface and the paint is even slower to dry. The second is ensure you have some white spirits available before you paint, not only to clean your brushes but white spirits is the only SAFE thing i have found to remove excess paint from other surfaces and even your hands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent filler for small jobs around the house, too expensive for larger jobs!, 10 Nov. 2015
2kg of powder makes 2kg of actual filler. The ratio of powder to water is around 80:20 or until the filler is pliable, it does allow you to experiment with the ratio depending on how soft you want to make it, just remember you can always add more water later on.

The filler is very easy to fill gaps with and i can confirm it doesn't shrink. Depending on the temperature the time it takes to set can vary. I found 40 minutes in a cool room to be about right.

The filler dries white and can be sanded, drilled or painted. For small jobs this is ideal although it isn't cheap so for big holes or cracks you are probably best mixing a small amount of sand and cement and once set putting a top coat of filler over it. If it wasn't for the high price this would get 5 stars!
