2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work :(, 13 Aug 2013

I can't get it to fit onto my hair dryer unless I hold it on, and even then it doesn't make beautiful curls.
Not worth bothering with.

This review is from: Traces (Audio CD)
I had the privilege of seeing Karine and the band at Sheffield Cathedral and she was fabulous. I didn't have any of her music before but bought this on the strength of the reviews and was not disappointed.
This is an album that gets under your skin, there are delicate, heartbreaking songs, and rousing, uplifting ones all sung in Karine's lilting voice. I can see why it has received such critical acclaim and I would recommend it even if you aren't s folk fan.
If you gets chance, go and see her live!

I was surprised how cheap these were and wasn't disappointed by the great quality when they arrived. They are adjustable and the earphones pivot for comfort. They are well padded and comfortable and block out a lot of outside noise.

Well recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, classy bag, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent a long time looking at reviews for the perfect bag and eventually settled on this one as an everyday bag. It's a great size, fits my ipad, purse, keys, phone, make up, pens etc. easily, and I got an A4 spiral notepad in it easily but would struggle with an A4 folder if you had a lot in it. The front pocket is completely separate and closed with a buckle, so what you have in there doesn't restrict space to the main compartment but the other sections are all part of the same compartment so they don't increase the space, only divide it up, ideal if you are someone who, like me, loses all sorts I the muddle of a bag, you can keep bulkier things in the main section and put smaller, flat items like notebooks, pens or beautifully folded bags for like in the 2 smaller sections. The zip pocket at the back is wide and long but not deep, it's the bit that rests against you so it's ideal for your phone as you wander about but I'm not sure much will fit in here without stretching the bag or squashing the things inside.

The finish is a reddy brown and some bits are less dark than others, I quite like the smell, I love leather, and have had lots of compliments on the bag since I received it. There is a little patch of goat hair on the side of one pocket, I think it's funny, but you can pull it out easily if it bothers you. The bag came with a bag to store it in and a little tin of oil (I can't open it but I assume that's what it is!), it is beautifully presented, well finished and was delivered quickly.

Highly recommended if you want something a little different that will outlast a high street purchase

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant product, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was camping for 6 days with a very power hungry phone. Aside from a couple of short charges I managed, this kept my phone (with mobile Internet turned off) going all week. It's small to carry round, and for an htc desire he, the charger for the battery pack is the same as the charger for the phone so you don't need lots of cables. Have used it since for charging my ipad and it worked well (would probably only do just over one full charge).
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product and service, 10 Jun 2011
This was a bargain and way cheaper than the branded equivalent. Also appears more sturdy than my original cable, worth a purchase as a replacement or as a spare to keep by your computer or in the car to charge with. Arrived promptly and was well packaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars A journey of discovery and creativity, 28 Dec 2008
This book should be on every scrapbooker's shelves. Through the 52 challenges Elsie inspires you to stretch your creativity and try new things not with prescriptive sketches but with general tasks such as rethinking your stash, using colours from home furnishings, documenting a day in your life, which allow to you use your own individual style. Elsie's own pages are shown in all their crazy, relaxed, informal, rule breaking glory alongside those from other scrappers with differing styles to show you different ways of interpreting the challenges. Not does this book make me want to complete all 52 of the challenges but also to see life with all the joy and enthusiasm Elsie seems to have in her life.
