5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely shoe, looks good, fits great, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Vivobarefoot products and this is not my first pair. I bought these to replace my last pair of Evo trainers which had eventually given up the ghost. I've worn these for a good couple months now, there's a little bit of scuffing on the white band around the shoe, but other than that, they look as new. Designed for road/pavement type terrain, they're one of the lightest shoes around, stand up to the HIIT class work I do and feel like a second skin.

These are elegantly styled, minimalist shoes with a very thin sole. If you're used to super-padded training shoes, then read up on these and find out how to transition to barefoot shoes to get the best out of it. Personally, going barefoot is one of the best things I've done for my feet and legs, no more aching feet on long walks and muscle tone in the legs is good. Vivo have a lot of information on their home website which is worth a gander if you're interested...

these are great teapots - note this is the smaller sized version which holds one cup of tea. I prefer the slightly larger 18oz cousin, it feels a bit more robust, but this is a lovely little single pot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real bread from your own kitchen, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great book, written with love and passion for the subject, it's a fascinating insight into bread making with lots of great information. Written by a professional who really understands the needs and limitations of a domestic kitchen and amateur - but it's not oversimplified and there's a huge depth of knowledge behind the writing. Thoroughly recommended for anyone looking to make a really good loaf of bread!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music, funny script and stylish animation, 22 Nov. 2014

This is a lovely Disney film... Great music, funny script and stylish animation. Shame it seems to have flown under the radar as it's right up there with the Aristocats and the Jungle Book in my opinion. Also by far one of the better heroines that they've managed to produce... Tiana has gumption and wit.


Inspiring Tunisian Crochet (6 Projects For You And Your Home Book 1)
Inspiring Tunisian Crochet (6 Projects For You And Your Home Book 1)
Price: £2.26

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, awful photos, nothing to inspire, 10 May 2014
Let me start with rarely do I write negative reviews, however this item really shouldn't be offered in exchange for money and I feel obliged to let you know why!

Got this through the Prime library and gutted I have wasted this month's selection but really glad I didn't pay for this.
The pictures of the project items are tiny and poorly shot, the blanket on the front cover is not included, and the layout of the patterns and text are difficult to decipher and not at all appealing.

The text is full of typos and terrible grammar, the yarn descriptions are limited so you would have to do a lot of research to substitute (no mention of either fibre type or weight)... and to cap it all off there are not any inspiring projects included. The designs are clumsy at best and don't appeal to me at all. I actually only borrowed it as I thought the blanket would be a nice project and it's not there.

Thoroughly disappointed! There are plenty cheap but well written patterns on ravelry or craftsy... my advice is avoid this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise and witty, 9 Oct. 2013

This is a book for everyone. There is well researched and clearly stated evidence of the real causes of heart disease... and therefore what you can do to improve your chances of avoiding it! Step away from the statins... indeed a brisk walk in the other direction should be what your doctor ordered (but sadly probably won't as the statins kick back is all too tempting). Now sit down and help yourself to that nice cheese and glass of wine and enjoy your stay on the planet in the company of good friends.

This review is from: The King's Peace (Kindle Edition)
The characters in this book are vivid and spring to life off the page. There is a massive cast and an epic style to this book, however it manages to stay very readable and it was difficult to put it down.

Love this game. Simple concept, beautiful colours, gets increasingly crafty. Can't go wrong really, does what it says on the tin.
