200 5:2 Diet Recipes: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook
200 5:2 Diet Recipes: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook
by Angela Dowden
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Eat, fast, repeat ..., 30 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was expecting a full size recipe book and was surprised when I opened the package and it was a mini-size book - although once I'd flicked through it the size of the book isn't important. Some good recipes in here to use whether you are on the 5:2 diet or not. If you are thinking of doing the diet there is an introduction at the beginning giving you more information on it - so it could act as a good starter book. Overall a good mix of recipes to cater for all tastes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sucking ..., 30 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A long cable, easy attachment storage and usage, lightweight and easy to store. Could use this from the bottom of the stairs and it reached every single step. Good suction on carpet and smooth floors, easy to empty and clean out the dust bin. Easy to manouvere and get under chairs and cupboards and fairly quiet. Overall a handy and useful piece of kit.


The Total Dog Manual: Meet, Train and Care for Your New Best Friend
The Total Dog Manual: Meet, Train and Care for Your New Best Friend
by David Meyer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.88

4.0 out of 5 stars Bark, bark, bark ..., 3 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As luck would havit my parents have just received a new puppy and this book has become an invaluable source of information. It is straightforward and informative. It is divided into comprehensive sections (training, grooming, feeding etc.) and each section is made up of short numbered paragraphs with just the information you need. Very easy to dip in and out of and find what you want to know.

Overall an invaluable guide, especially, for the new dog owner.


Piccadilly Unscented Shaving Cream
Piccadilly Unscented Shaving Cream
Price: £13.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of something ..., 3 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Old fashioned shaving is, or has, come back into fashion - although most men don't seem to be shaving these days anyway. After many years of going from single, to three to five blade cartridge razor heads I finally decided enough was enough and went back to a simple DE single razor blade with a classic style razor - which are cheaper, sharper and longer lasting than the other 'new' / 'techno' style things.

The next step is to stop using all the 'fancy' gels and creams and go with something that has been around a while and doesn't keep changing just as you find something you like. Normally I use Edwin Jagger but I thought I would give this a go as well - although they haven't been around as long Piccadilly are going for the same market (they even do a traditional safety razor).

With shaving creams or soaps that come in a tub I always use a shaving brush. Make sure you wet your facefirst with hot water and then apply the creamy smoothness. The razor blades just glide through this cream and the blades don't get all bunged up like they do with some of the gels. I have sensitive skin and it is very easy to end up with redness and nicks. Still red after using this but not so much and it doesn't feel like you are scraping the blade across your skin.

Overall an excellent product which should help to convince most men to ditch the new stuff and try something more traditional.


Round Soft Dog Bed Cushioned with Fleece Lining (Burgundy, Large 887)
Round Soft Dog Bed Cushioned with Fleece Lining (Burgundy, Large 887)
Offered by Far East Direct Ltd
Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Something to snuggle ..., 23 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great bed - so much so that my niece and nephew keep wanting to snuggle down in it. My cockapoo took to it straight away - he loves to jump into it while running at great speed (the anti-slip base comes in handy) and then just flopping down in it with his head hanging over the side. It is big enough for him to fully stretch out (he is about inbetween small/medium) and seems to be tough enough to stand up to him scrabbling around inside it.

Overall an excellent bed for your dog.


ManCave Natural Cedarwood Shower Gel 200ml
ManCave Natural Cedarwood Shower Gel 200ml
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep your ManCave clean ..., 22 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's a shower gel. Good scent and lathers well, it is a thick gel, without needing to use too much. This is obviously trying to appeal to the slightly more image conscious man - probably one with a beard and aged between 25 and 35. If you know of a hipster then he will probably appreciate this - although I am not too sure about the name.


AmazonBasics Blend and Go Smoothie Blender 600ml - Green
AmazonBasics Blend and Go Smoothie Blender 600ml - Green
Price: £17.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Smoothies all the time ..., 22 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Another addition to the AmazonBasics range which is quick, easy and simple to use. It comes with two containers with lockable lids for portability. You fill the container - with liquid, fruit, yoghurt and nuts (for example) - then either lock the container onto the base unit for continuous operation of push it down for a pulsing action, in a couple of minutes you have a smoothie.

The only problem, as with any blender, is leakage. The bottom part of the container has a rubber ring on it which can sometimes come loose and fall off, and, if you haven't noticed that it has, and you turn it upside down then you will get liquid all over the kitchen. So being vigilant to this is advised.


Culinare Lift Off Can Opener - White
Culinare Lift Off Can Opener - White
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars No gimmick tin opener ..., 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the best tin opener ... ever!

My old one broke (after owning it for about forever) - a part of the plastic snapped off and I couldn't find one like it anywhere. Doing seemingly random searches I eventually stumbled upon this one and it is exactly the same. This is about the only tin opener which hasn't be 'improved' or looks 'modern' or 'complicated'. Simple and straightforward. Does the job and opens tins cleanly with no fuss.

Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Wrist Action Supportive ..., 6 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Luckily(?) I sprained my wrist a few weeks after receiving this item. It's tight enough to prevent too much movement but not so tight that it cut the blood off. Comfortable to wear - I wore all day for a few days - and easy to put on yourself.

2.0 out of 5 stars To muse ..., 14 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Stress and Freedom (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Another modern philosopher with a very abstract idea - this time about freedom. Much of modern philosophy seems to either be 'self-help' in disguise or to be so abstract as to have no practical application. This short book falls somewhere inbetween.
