5.0 out of 5 stars Super!, 29 Jan 2014
These are brilliant. Lovely and sweet. They have a long used by date on printed on the label of 2015! Can't complain. I decanter them into a little 'snack' container to enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great if you miss breakfast!, 26 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These taste good, not too sweet. You get four biscuits per pack and they do fill you up if you happen to have not had time for a proper breakfast. They are also good for a tea break and they dip well!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really nice fitting top, 25 Jan 2014
I received this as a gift and it is true to size, the colour is lovely. It's made of quite a thin material so perfect to wear on a hot day. It's not tight fitting which is another plus. It doesn't look baggy though!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not blown away!, 24 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am not sure about this. Just like other epilators it doesn't seem to like coarse dark hair very much. I tried the face attachment and it picked up wispy hairs but where there were a few tougher hairs, they weren't quite caught and when they were, there was tiny bits left. This claims to catch even the shortest hairs but it doesn't.

Right now, I can't say that this is worth the retail price. You could buy a cheaper epilator and just make sure you exfoliate. Exfoliating doesn't really make any difference to the hair pulling power. Once again, this seems to be aimed at those with wispy fine hairs.

These are as you would expect, nice and sweet. They have a nice lemon taste without being too sickly. They fill a gap when you need a biscuit!

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice light foundation, 17 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have tried mousse foundations before and could never really get on with them. The problem is if you spend too much time applying. With these, you have to be quite quick when applying them as they sort of end up a little dusty. I mix a bit of my concealer with this and it works really well. The colour is actually really good as my skin has cool undertones so this basically doesn't come out with an orange tinge like some do. A little goes a long way and it leaves your skin slightly matt which is pretty good. Towards the end of the day my skin hasn't felt dry or 'stick'y as I find some foundations are quite heavy. This one is nice and light especially if your skin is good and you have nothing to hide. This won't provide heavy coverage but mixing it with a bit of your concealer will help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice cardigan!, 11 Jan 2014
I received this as a gift and it looks just like the picture. It is slightly longer at the back than the front. It has very long sleeves which I wanted. It is nice and warm. The collar sits close to the neck. It looks quirky too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super cute for winter!, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gabor Womens Irma N Boots (Shoes)
These are true to size, there is a zip down the side to get your foot in. They fit perfectly. I would say though that you might find it a bit awkward getting your foot in if you have slightly wide feet. The suede is lovely, they are really warm too. They look great with black thick tights so that you can easily wear them to work without feeling like you're wearing something clumpy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just perfect!, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This jacket is sized really well. I got a 10 and it isn't oversized to allow for thick jumpers etc. There are plenty of pockets with studs and without. You can adjust the bottom but not the waist with a pull string. There are studs though on the outside. There is a zipped pocket just inside. This closes via a zip with a Velcro flat. The hood rolls up inside the collar and is then secured by little Velcro tabs. This jacket is thin and light weight so you will need to rely on your base layers - it doesn't claim to keep you super warm. This comes down so that your rear is covered - not all jackets do that. I am really pleased with it.

Delivery by Trekwear is really prompt and the coat arrives in a plastic bag so not huge packaging either. It was delivered by Yodel and left exactly as per my instructions!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure yet.., 31 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wanted to review this because I use my Kindle every day whilst commuting to work by train (standing all the way). I need a cover that is light weight, easy to hold one handed whilst squashed next to other people. I currently have a tuff Luv case for my Kindle .Tuff-Luv 'Embrace' case cover for Amazon Kindle Touch / Paperwhite (Book Style) - Electric Blue that also has a strap so that you can hold it one handed whilst on the train and it is very lightweight. My thoughts on this case are:

Good:
- Feels nice and looks nice - get a cool looking design
- Kindle is secure in the elasticated corners
- Has a slide hand strap so you can hold the Kindle whilst the case is open
- Doesn't have the magnet that turns your Kindle on - I find this a bit annoying with my other cover.

Not so sure about:
- the case is white and will get grubby fairly quickly but you can wipe it clean
- a bit heavy
- the slide strap is very tight and I have slim hands and struggled with it
- the elasticated corners are positioned right in the middle of the case as if you were meant to put your iphone in this instead. It's quite a challenge getting the Kindle in. Not sure why the corners have been placed like that. Most are right in the corner.
- The red logo patch in the crease seems to stop this folding back without it being a bit wonky
- without securing closed with the elastic, the case sits open a bit rather than laying flat
- the case feels stiff when trying to fold open

Considering how much this costs, I have had at least two other cases at a third of the price which have been great so I can't say that this case offers more than they do.
