4.0 out of 5 stars Barbie vanity table with a twist, 1 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a typical pink plastic vanity table for Barbie, with a twist - the twist being that you can flip the desk top up to reveal a spy console(!), and twist the mirror around to reveal a viewing slot for a smart phone to be inserted so your child can watch films on your smartphone.

Exactly how many small girls actually have their own smartphones is highly debatable, but nevertheless that's the main gimmick of this vanity table.

Suffice to say that as a vanity table it's everything you'd expect, complete with stool, mirror, two drawers and a handful of trinkets. It's easily assembled and made of sturdy pink plastic, though of course no toy is ever completely child proof.

One thing though, the Barbie 2015 DVD illustrated on the box isn't included and needs to be purchased separately.


TOFKA Toffee Vodka
TOFKA Toffee Vodka
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly sweet, more like a liqueur than a vodka taste, 26 Feb. 2015
This review is from: TOFKA Toffee Vodka (Grocery)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very nice 29.9% toffee flavoured vodka suitable for shots. It tastes very nice on its own, and being pleasantly sweet (but not sickeningly so) you could be forgiven for forgetting that you're actually drinking a vodka. In fact if you're not a vodka fan then don't worry, it doesn't taste of vodka at all, more like a liqueur.

As an added novelty bonus, it even looks magical swirling around in the bottle, with zillions of tiny golden particles flowing about in the liquid.


Jabra Evolve 80 Corded UC Stereo NC Headset
Jabra Evolve 80 Corded UC Stereo NC Headset
Price: £213.73

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good active noise cancellation for office use, 26 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This headset is primarily aimed at people who work in noisy offices rather than as a gaming headset, although thanks to its Active Noise Cancelation - which is very good, although it takes 3 hours to charge up from a USB port on its first use - if you're playing games in a noisy environment then this evolve 80 might be worth considering.

The boom microphone may look a bit dated, but it's actually good at picking out your voice from any background noises, and it's also light and unobtrusive when you're not using it or its flipped up out of the way.

While externally the cans are round rather than oblong, they do totally cover your ears, which is always a bonus when it comes to comfort. Sound quality is good, rather than mind blowing.

A largish USB dongle is also included, enabling you to take, end and mute calls, as well as adjusting the volume. One nice touch is that the dongle has a rubberised backing so is less prone to sliding about your desk or slipping off it. A soft, zippable carry pouch is also included to store the headset and dongle in.

Downsides? Well, the price is a bit steep. But then, the noise cancellation is very good. So if good noise cancellation in an office environment is what you're looking for then this may be a price that's worth paying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than ordinary Vanish., 24 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Vanish Gold is even better than ordinary Vanish, which is really saying something. It's for whites only, but it transformed two old white tea towels covered in stains into looking as if they were brand new and had never been used, which given the state of those tea towels is no mean achievement.

It's not often I give out 5 stars for a product, but this stuff deserves it.


Belkin Chambray Cover for iPad Air 2 - Black/Grey
Belkin Chambray Cover for iPad Air 2 - Black/Grey
Price: £20.14

4.0 out of 5 stars Better for the iPad Air 1 than the 2, 19 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Firstly, as others have said, the rubberised straps that hold your iPad Air in place obscure both of the ambient light sensors on the iPad Air 2 - but NOT on the original iPad Air (incase you're wondering, these are the two tiny little holes either side of the rear facing camera on the Air 2). This obviously means that if you own an iPad Air 2 then your screen will no longer auto adjust its light levels when using this Belkin cover.

That said, this is otherwise a good cover for iPad Airs, with the cameras, buttons and headphone jack all still accessible while you Air is strapped in. It's thick enough to offer decent rather than outstanding protection, the magnet means fuss free opening and closing, and every time I open the case up it somehow triggers my iPad Air 2 to open up it's Slide to Unlock screen. Although don't ask me how it's managing to do it.

All in all this is a good quality iPad Air case from Belkin.


Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm Stain - Demure
Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm Stain - Demure
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Lip balm not lipstick, 16 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This should probably be more properly be labelled as a lip balm than a lacquer stain, but either way it's definitely not a lipstick as it wears off fairly quickly. That said, it's very easy to apply and reapply - it just glides onto your lips - leaving you with a soft, smooth texture that's maybe a little more glittery than you'd expect from the pics, but overall this is a very nice product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for pale skins, 5 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First and most importantly, is a very bold colour that is definitely not going to suit you if you have pale skin. The other big downer is that this lippy wears off fairly quickly, which means likely as not you'll need to constantly reapply it if you go out for a meal. It does feel nice to wear though.


Barbie in Princess Power Corinne Doll
Barbie in Princess Power Corinne Doll
Price: £22.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Disco Barbie, 31 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great Barbie doll for the little princess/urchin* in your life (*delete as applicable). If you press the butterfly broach on her chest the top half of her dress lights up disco fashion and a sound effect blows you a kiss, and should also put a beaming smile on your little girls's face.

Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - 5 g, N1 Black
Price: £6.29

4.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to Revlon's usual high standards, 27 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Revlon are a big name with a quality reputation to uphold, and whilst this ColourStay eyeliner wasn't particularly easy to apply, once on it stayed on - although it will eventually smudge if you're not careful.

Overall it did its job, looked good and will last throughout the day so long as you keep your fingers away from your eyes. Recommended.


Tacwise 50mm Brad Nailer. Air Nail Gun. DGN50V
Tacwise 50mm Brad Nailer. Air Nail Gun. DGN50V
Price: £65.18

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and easy to use, 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Mid budget they may be, but Tacwise nail guns - or at least all the ones I've used - have all been marked out by their simplicity and ease of use, and this 50mm nail air gun is no different.

Loading the gun is a cinch, the quick release nose plate means it's a doddle to sort out any nail jams (not that I've ever had any) and the soft nose means that the gun won't damage any soft wood when you press the gun against it (be aware that the brad nails this gun fires are designed to be fired through wood, not brick or stone). The depth control adjuster is a nice touch, and the gun also lets you know when it's run out of nails.

All in all this is a quality air nail gun, and I can see why this is apparently one of Tacwise's best selling nail guns.
