Rexel A4 Budget 2 Ring Binder with Spine Ticket Window - Black (Pack of 10)
Price: £15.52

5.0 out of 5 stars great value for money, 29 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are excellent value for money folders for students or offices. They hold A4. They are easy to use. They are also very durable due to the plastic material they are made with. I recommend these to anyone and I use mine all the time.


The Racketeer
The Racketeer
by John Grisham
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars John Grisham is a master!, 27 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Racketeer (Paperback)
I forgot how good John Grisham is! This is a brilliant story that keeps you guessing throughout. It is very humanely written with none of the usual cringiness of thrillers. The writing is very authentic and the characters are realistic; you are always wondering if they are good or bad or a mixture of both. I found this book unputdownable and I loved all the twists. Having read a spate of badly written thrillers recently, I am excited to re-discover such a clever writer. I am now going to re-read all Grisham and read those which I haven't yet read.
The Racketeer is clever and an excellent read which you wont be able to put down. I loved it and I thoroughly recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars not funny in any way, 27 May 2015
This review is from: Funny Girl (Paperback)
I tried to read this and had to give up half way through as it was so boring. The writing style too is dry and trying to be droll but it doesn't work in my opinion. The main character is unlikable and under-developed. This book is dreadful in my opinion and doesn't deserve all the praise it has on its cover.


Fear the Dark (Darby McCormick)
Fear the Dark (Darby McCormick)

3.0 out of 5 stars predictable page-turner, 27 May 2015
This is a page-turner and easy to read and I quite enjoyed it. However, it was incredibly predictable; I had guessed the identity of both the murderer and his partner very early on. The style of writing is also predictable with a strong and cool female lead which I find boring now. It was not my favourite book but it was a fast and quick paced read and perfect for holiday or when you don't want to think too much about what you are reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars great alternative to gym, 26 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My husband has been using this and he is very impressed. He has been a body builder and spends a lot of time exercising. He has been using this trainer and claims it is able to work most of his muscles. He thinks it is a very viable option instead of expensive gym equipment. He is going to collate a list of the various exercises this sling can work for and I will add to review. He feels it is sturdy and robust and an excellent alternative to the gym.
My feelings. however, are that it concerns me all the pulling on the door and I feel that it is not sturdy enough for strenuous and strong exercise. I am worried if it could do damage to the walls or the door frame. Having said that, my husband is confident it is designed for that exactly and will not do any damage.
This is a great and cheap alternative to the gym. You do need to know what to do though but I will name the different things you can do below.

4.0 out of 5 stars lovely handcreams, 10 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely set of four handcreams which is beautifully packaged in a bright and colourful tin. The handcreams are small and there are four different ones; from light to intense. They smell amazing. They also nourish your hands beautifully. My only concern with them, however, is that they leave a sticky residue, a pet hate of mine (some people don't mind that but I can't stand that feeling of having sticky hands).
This tin would make a lovely gift and is also a lovely way to sample Institut Karite. I do recommend this, I just don't like the residue.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disgusting, 5 May 2015
I have contacted Amazon repeatedly about the excerpt shown for this book. It is disgusting and reads like child porn. This should be banned by Amazon.


Minecraft Construction For Dummies
Minecraft Construction For Dummies
by Adam Cordeiro
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent; advice for the novice right through to the expert, 4 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love the For Dummies series and own loads of them. I read them and return to them again and again.
I don't play Minecraft but I use it with my pupils and we have been using this Minecraft Construction for Dummies and they have been loving it. It suits the people with no knowledge of the game and tells them the very basics but it is also extremely beneficial for the more advanced players and teaches them new skills with it.
The book has lovely and clear illustrations of the gameplay and lots of tips and advice for the novice right through to the expert.
This book makes a very good reference book but I have been using it as a lesson tool in my class to allow the pupils to develop their skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really effective and easy to use laser, 2 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is excellent. It is extremely easy to use and pain-free.
The laser comes in a carry bag with separate attachments for large areas like the legs, one for the face and one for the bikini and underarm area. They slip on easily and there is no nonsense in setting any of this up, although it does need charged before use.
The laser is sturdy and well made and easy to handle and manage. The laser head to treat the legs is much much bigger than a previous laser I had tried so although it still takes ages to zap a full leg it is doable. There is also a slide function to speed things up. One zap of my moustache though and it has gone! My legs need treated every forthnight for a few months and then no hair grows back. Wonderful! That is worth taking the time to ensure your legs are hair free and to avoid the effort of shaving every other day. They provide tips to speed up the process and advise you use a white eyeliner so you know the bits you have done; I found this really helpful. It also saved me doing it all at once.
I know this works because my hair has disappeared. It will grow back until all the hair cycle is treated but a few more months of treatment and I will be free of hair which is wonderful. No more expensive trips to the salon or fiddling about with wax, shaving or epilators. I don't know if it will pay for itself over time but it will certainly save on effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really works and 5 stars for hair in need of nourishment, 27 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This really works. I have fairly full hair but this gives it real bounce and body. It is light on hair too and doesn't leave a sticky residue which I hate about hair products. Other dusty type products to volumise hair leave it feeling chalky and a bit like steel wool so I totally avoid these! This smells lovely and is very pleasant to use. My only concern was that it made my hair slightly more greasy which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. This might be slightly unfair because if you have dry hair then this will be a benefit for your hair.
It is also extremely economical as you only need a very small amount so this tub should last for ages.
Overall, I am really pleased with this and I will definitely buy again.
