Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My Braun Oral-B toothbrush gives me the best cleaning I had ever had from an electric toothbrush (even my dentist remarked upon my cleaning) and these toothbrush heads fit most toothbrushes of this brand.

I found these heads comfortable to use and gave a refreshing feel to my teeth and gums when the cleaning process was complete. You can certainly feel the bristles getting between the teeth.

I don't think the price is too bad considering the good quality and, with 8 heads in the pack, they should last two years if you change them every three months as per the normal recommendation.

A word of warning though. The brush heads are quite firm so if you prefer a softer brush, they might not be suitable. However, for medium to firm toothbrush users, they are ideal.

My goodness. This is only level 2 and I am struggling. It's great to get a puzzle book that challenges from the start without having to go through loads of boring easy puzzles.

Not suitable for those new to this type of puzzle but if you are fairly adept, this is a good set of puzzles to get your teeth into. I love it.


Leitz Style A5 Soft Cover Ruled Notebook - Titan Blue
Leitz Style A5 Soft Cover Ruled Notebook - Titan Blue

2.0 out of 5 stars The paper may be good quality although the whole unit doesn't particularly feel special, 27 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is basically just a notebook with a couple of ribbon bookmarks and a (very) few post it type silver coloured sticky markers in the back.

The folder in the back to hold documents (small documents due to the size of the notebook) tore as soon as I put something in and tried to get it out again.

The paper may be good quality although the whole unit doesn't particularly feel special. The price is way too high for this.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are good quality tools and have a solid feel to them despite being very light. With the aluminium case, they would be ideal for, say, a portable barbecue on a picnic or for taking to someone else's barbecue if they need tools.

The insulated handles are useful to avoid burning that pure metal tools cause if kept on the heat.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is quite handy to keep in the car or for a holiday as it is small and compact and carries the essentials for everyday cuts and grazes. Read carefully what you are getting though as there is not much of any item included although the box is fairly sturdy and you can refill it with items of your choice.

I am a bit dubious about the short "use by" date on it (about a year) as there is no medicine included. I'm sure that plasters and bandages and maybe even antiseptic wipes, being sealed, should last longer than this. You could always put fresh things in it though if you are unsure.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is great. I am a big fan of steam generator irons (well, in a sense that ironing needs to be done) and Philips in particular. What makes this stand out for me is that it is smaller and much lighter than those I have used before. Despite that, I have got a good hours ironing out of one fill of the water tank and the chore of ironing is made much easier than using conventional irons.

In use, it smooths and creases clothes quickly and effectively, particularly using the steam function.

If I have one small gripe it is that you need to take the whole unit to the sink to empty it. I believe that this is normal for most steam generators, which makes it awkward to empty. However at least it is lighter than most which makes it a bit easier. A previous one that I have used has a removable tank which, in my opinion, should be standard.

Overall I thoroughly recommend this for someone living on their own or a small family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well this is very nice. A garden nightlight that runs on solar power, 7 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well this is very nice. A garden nightlight that runs on solar power. I managed to set it up with very little effort in my garden and it works quite well. It picked up the sun during the day on the solar panel unit and when I switched it on at night it produced a soft but powerful light, ideal for a soiree on the patio.

It is very versatile in that you can either put it into the ground or attach it to a fence or shed. I haven't tried this but the instructions look simple enough.

It would be nice of the solar panel was built into the in same unit as the lamp but there is plenty of cable to ensure that it is not intrusive and, assuming you haven't permanently fixed it, you can move it around to suit.


Mindfulness at Work For Dummies
Mindfulness at Work For Dummies
by Shamash Alidina
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.89

5.0 out of 5 stars ... the Computer/IT category but have steadily expanded to provide useful information in many areas of life, 27 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Dummies books started off in the Computer/IT category but have steadily expanded to provide useful information in many areas of life. As with all these books, Mindfulness at work for Dummies is for people who want to get an introduction to mindfulness and practical methods of applying it to a working environment.

The book is well laid out in the house style so if you have read other Dummies books, you will feel at home here. The chapters are clear and easy to read and there are plenty of tips and things to try, which are clearly shown through use of an icon. You don't need any prior knowledge or have any scientific nous but for those who want to know about such things there are several short sections labelled "The Science Behind It". These are in dark grey boxes which you can read or you may discard without affecting your understanding of the material.

There are references to audio material and exercises which you can download (there is also a version of the book with a CD containing this material) and there are also other online web resources such as cheat sheets. The web addresses are given in the book.

I recommend this book to anyone who is having a stressful time at work or just wants to improve their mindset but is unsure of how to approach it. It will explain mindfulness to you and guide you through the techniques without expecting you to be an expert but not talking down to you either.


Rapesco X5-90PS Less Effort Heavy Duty Stapler

4.0 out of 5 stars It is bigger than your average desk stapler but it should still sit easily on an office desk, 16 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Wow. This is powerful. It is bigger than your average desk stapler but it should still sit easily on an office desk. It feels quite sturdy and should survive heavy duty use around the office.

Because of the power assist design (not electrical by the way) , you can easily staple large bundles with ease. It's not cheap to buy but then again it's not a cheap stapler.

If you are only wanting to staple the occasional attachment to a letter, then this is not for you but if you want to secure multiple page documents then this will do the job,


Oral-B Pro 2000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Oral-B Pro 2000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Price: £35.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Clean, 10 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I personally think that Braun Oral B toothbrushes are the best you can get and this one is no exception. It's actually the third one I have used over the years.

It is very comfortable to hold, considering that electric toothbrushes tend to be bulkier than manual ones. It always leaves the mouth feeling refreshed after use. My dentist has even praised me on my cleaning.

I thought the light to warn you when you press too hard would be impossible to see but no, it is bright enough and positioned in such a way that it is obvious to the user when it is lit. I jumped when it came on the first time. Thankfully you do have to press quite hard so it doesn't come on too often. Also the timer which buzzes every 30 seconds (with a long buzz at the end of the two minute cleaning time) is very useful.

OK so now the gripe that will always cause me to dock a star. 24 hours to charge the battery which then lasts for around half an hours brushing, What's that all about? Compare that to most shavers (which are bigger and have similar moving parts) which take around an hour to charge and last 45 minutes to an hour. I don't know if this is usual for all toothbrushes but it certainly seems to be the case for Braun Oral B. Come on lads, I'm sure you can do better than this.

Despite this minor annoyance, I still think that this is an excellent toothbrush which does a good job of cleaning the gnashers.
