4.0 out of 5 stars Great value for the price and stunning to look at, 3 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have had this watch for about two weeks now and I like it. However there are drawbacks.

The watch itself is an"automatic" wind up watch which means that it needs winding but once on the wrist, it uses kinetc energy to maintain its wind. So far I've experienced no major issues with this, and it keeps the time VERY well indeed, even off a quick wind. The watch itself is very nice to look at, and the skeleton design means you can see the workings of the watch from both the front and back, with the added bounus of being able to see the mainspring so you know when you need to rewind the watch. The dial is easy to see and the bronzy/gold numbers against thw white mean they stand out very well too. Apartently the watch is water resistant to 5 meters, but I've not tried this, especialy with a leather strap.

However, the strap and clasp is the main problem with this watch. Apart from the leather looking a bit cheap, the clasp is VERY tricky to worlk about and there are no instructions inlcuded on how to work it. After 30 min of fiddling about with it, the best bit of advice I can give is that it works like a braclet. You "pin" the arm in to the hole, leave it there and simply do up / undo the clasp each time. it really is an over complicated affair and aslo makes the watch look a little cheap as you have a metal clasp mixing on a leather strap. However, once you suss it out, its not too bad, and the watch is comformatable to wear.

The watch is aparently "swiss made", and to be honest t here is a more detailed review and explaination as to the "Swiss made" element of the watch here, which can explain the process of it far better than I can: http://www.ablogtowatch.com/earnshaw-beagle-watch-review/ but in a nutshell, a majority of the parts in the watch are swiss made and then whole watch itself is assembled in Hong Kong.

Overall this is a very nice looking watch for the price, and it performs well. The only reason it is not 5 star is because of the strap it comes with, but lets be honest you can always change that anyway.


Vidal Sassoon Infra Radiance Curler
Vidal Sassoon Infra Radiance Curler
Offered by pcltech
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A great value product with excellent results, 3 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These curling tongs have been very impressive to use.

There are 7 heat settings to choose from, along with a stay cool tip and an infra red option which helps to curl pretty much all hair types and reduce frizz. They are also effective as they heat up in about 30 seconds and maintain a constant temperature during use. The curling results also last the whole day on both long and short hair.

Overall in terms of quality, perfomance and results you cannot get any better.


AmazonBasics Umbrella Cover
AmazonBasics Umbrella Cover
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job superbly, 3 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This cover offers great value for money.

It is made from a strong woven polyester fabric that offers a good degree of waterproofing, and it slips on and off easily. It comes with a tie at the bottom to help secure the cover, and has a nice brown finish at the bottom making it seem less bland and boring than other covers.

Overall I'm very happy with it!


Felix Mixed Selection in Jelly Wet Cat Food Pouch, 100 g (Pack of 96)
Felix Mixed Selection in Jelly Wet Cat Food Pouch, 100 g (Pack of 96)
Price: £25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice treat for the cat, 3 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This box offer great value. It contains x96 100g pouches in 4 flavours -. Salmon, Tuna, Chicken and Beef and each pouch is made up meat chunks covered in gravy and jelly. The pouches themselves are easy to open, and the food does not give off too much of a smell when served.

My cat usually eats dried food, but she took to these pouches quite well. She would get through roughly half a pouch "per sitting", and generally prefered the Tuna and chicken pouches over the other two. We did found however, that given the choice, she prefered the dired food over these, but was happy to have these as a "treat" every few days or so. As a result, the pouches have lasted a long time indeed.

Overall, I'm very happy with the product, but will probably stick to dried food as use these as a treat as and when needed


Igenix Chimney Cooker Hood Extractor - 60 cm, Stainless Steel
Igenix Chimney Cooker Hood Extractor - 60 cm, Stainless Steel
Price: £79.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A great cooker hood!, 8 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very well built product.

It arrived intact and was very well packed. The hood itself is a bit bigger that I expected, but manged to fit ok. Installing the hood was very straightforward and the stainless steel effect reflects the light well, giving the kitchen a more spacious feel. The operation buttons are clear, and the filters are very easy access as well, which allows a simple, hassle free cleaning process.

All in all, I'm very happy with this cooker hood

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb gin - and ANOTHER great product from Penderyn, 30 May 2015
This review is from: Brecon Botanicals Gin 70cl (Wine)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is one of THE best Gin's I've ever had.

I've been lucky to have been aware of this gin for quite a while now, ever since its first release a few years ago when I was on a visit to the Penderyn distillery. There was much hype about this blend around the time of its release and this has been validated by it winning the Gin Trophy (Top Award) at the International Spirits Challenge 2014. As well as myself, everyone I know who's tasted this gin has loved it.

The botanicals blend is very different from the reserve blend produced by Penderyn, as it has a mixture of juniper, coriander, citrus and oriental spices as well as a traditional gin mix. The taste is very different to what else is on the market, and while it sounds like a "busy" mix of ingredients, its not too powerful or overwhelming and the taste is very balanced indeed. If you add a mixer the taste expands even further to include the citrus, bergamot, well as hints of cinnamon, clove and saffron, which again are not too overwhelming but add a nice twist to the traditional gin taste.

This is perfect to drink at any time of the year, but is a VERY nice drink to have for the summer BBQs and cocktail parties where the botanical taste seems to work best.

Overall a SUPEB product and one which I'd recommend 100%

SanDisk SDDDC-032G-G46 Ultra Dual USB Flash Drive USB 3.0 Type C Connector - 32 GB
Price: £36.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little device, 30 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very handy usb device,

As well has having 32GB memory to store file, it also alows the transfer to data between a deveice with a Type-A USB 3 connector to a device with a Type-C USB connector - although at present there are not too many of these USB type C deveices on the market. The transfer speed on the USB itself was OK - not fantastic but not too slow either, and the protective cover does a good job of protected the end not in use - although it is impossible to protect both ends at the same time.

At present, this device does not connect to any UK phone, only some tablets, so I'm unable to comment on its upload transfer via USB type C at present, but as a USB device with long lasting appeal, its very good indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb product, superb results!, 30 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This hair removal system has excellent result, providing you meet the skin and hair types listed in its product drescription. (Generally that means dark blonde, brown and black hairs on white / pale skin, dark skin is NOT recommended).

The Lumea itself is easy to operate and use - press the device onto your skin, wait until the light turns green and then press the flash button to remove the hair. The Lumea has many different settings as well as a bikini line attachment which is easy to apply, simply swap the "gun ends" by a pull and click method and your away to go. The device itself is also well constructed and despite an accidental drop from about 5 meters contiunes to work well, with no damage what so ever (not even a scrape). Best of all the device is wireless which means its very versaile too. The charge time for the device is very short, and battery life also asts long enough for 3 applications on the legs. The instructions state that the best results will come after 6 to 10 weeks, with some noticeable differences straight away, and this has certainly been the case as inital use has proven far more effective than waxing or epilating.

The hair removal process is far less painful than other hair removal methods, but in order to gain the best possible results you MUST follow the instructions,and give the device the 6-10 week time it requires.

Overall a fantastic device, and well worth the investement

5.0 out of 5 stars A great patio heater!, 18 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The heater is superb!

Its fairly light to move around on its castors, but the handle to move it about needs to be asseblmed and attached beforehand. Not a big or difficult job to do, but be aware of this when buying. The gas container compartment is easy to open and "lock" shut, and the gas connector itself is very easy to connect to a gas bottle. The gaps to reach the operating dials themselves are large allowing ease of access to the gas bottle dial.

As for the heater itself - its very, very effective indeed. I've tried this on medium and high, and can safely say that both provide a very good source of hea. On full you can benefit from the heat to an area of about 6/10 meters away from the heater itself. The stainless steel effect also makes it look stylish and modern. Gas consuption is also very good, meaning there's no need top worry about having to refil the gas all that often either.

HOWEVER - and this is a pretty big however, there is no connecting tube or regulator included, depsite what it shows in the pictures. Not a Mojor problem for me personally as I have spares, but be aware you WILL need to buy these seperatley (At a cost of about £5-£10) to get this heater functional.

Overall, a very good heater and well recommended.
