Amanti Venezia Murano Silver Plated Genuine Pink Dotty Heart Earrings
Amanti Venezia Murano Silver Plated Genuine Pink Dotty Heart Earrings
Price: £9.23

5.0 out of 5 stars Amanti Venezia Pink Silver Plated Earrings - Super Gift Idea, 16 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are lovely but more a pinky pale red than red red if you know what I mean. They are advertised as pink but the picture does make them appear red.

Have already got another pair in Aqua and was so happy with those that then ordered these on offer.

They come in a nice black pouch inside a gift box so if thinking of buying as a present ideal. Also a care leaflet to look after them etc.

They are neither too big or bulky just a nice size and the hooks are the right length too.

5.0 out of 5 stars AmiGami. Unusual Present Topper, 15 Feb. 2015
This review is from: AmiGami Bird Figure (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fun item that there is no right or wrong to do it.

The bird itself is made from plastic and lots of various bits and pieces to decorate it with.

Curling ribbons, hearts, stickers of various shapes all easily got off their strips and can be reused. Everything you need to make this is included, hardest part was opening the plastic outer.

So easy to do and quick too, son would not be seen doing any of it, as too girlie. Maybe do some monster ones or boy coloured/themed ones.

A child's item, but I am using mine as a present topper as thought it a bit more unusual and more exciting looking than your normal bows. So yes I enjoyed being creative with mine and now got a very unusual looking present topper.

These could make really good present for birthdays or Christmas without costing too much either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lost and Found - Strange but Enjoyable Story, 12 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Lost & Found (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Millie, Karl and Agatha a strange read but enjoyable.

It really showed me just how people are old or not and how they cope with various situations. I felt so sorry for Millie at first being left the way she was but the story that came from it and her journey was one I enjoyed reading about. The manaquin scenario had me stitches.

Never read anything like is one before so hard to compare it to anything else really. Have now passed it onto daughter for her thoughts on it as she seemed to think it would be a read worth it.

I loved Mille, Karl strange but likeable and Agatha, well it teaches you a lot about learning of life I thought and these characters all together bought it to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amanti Venezia Silver Plated Heart Earrings - Wow, 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely heart earrings.

Have another item in the range so know the quality is a good one so no hesitation in buying these earrings on offer.

Silver plated hooks that are just the right size and the hearts sweet with the Aqua dots on them.

Bought these on offer, come nicely gift boxed so if a gift even better. Would consider buying the other colours in these after seeing these and at full price.

Delivery and packing spot on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Microfibre Towel - Just the Job for Nero and his Walks, 10 Feb. 2015
Using this for our Boston Terrier puppy when drying him after walks. Will also be used when he gets bathed that still to come.....

Ideal as so quick to dry and not a big heavy item either. Have taken it out inside car in the net pouch it comes and and is just so useful for drying him after walks in longish wet grass. Hang it up in its pouch when not in use and takes up so little space, so ideal for putting in backpack for days out.

The item itself washes well and dries so quickly, what I like most about it is there are no fibres to come loose even when chewed.

Super as pet towel but as a human towel do miss the fluffy fibre texture of no microfibre towel, so Nero will be keeping this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heisenberg T Shirt - Breakng Bad Fan Size Spot On, 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a medium size in this and size was spot on.

The t shirt quality and thickness made it good value for money, bought as a Christmas present and was well received by a Breaking Bad fan.

Washes and wears well with no colour bleed or stitching coming undone. No baggy neck either unlike some cheaper made ones.

Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain - 2.7 g, Honey
Price: £6.82

5.0 out of 5 stars Revlon Lip Stain Honey - Easy to Apply and Good Colour, 6 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Hardest part getting the cellophane off it.

A nice thick chunky looking crayon which is easy to hold and apply. Twist for more crayon when needed, but looking at it and using it would say will take quite a few goes before that is needed. Doesn't seem to clog up on lips or make lines seem deeper like some lipsticks can, probably due to this being a stain. Whatever, it makes a good item to have in my make up bag. Lid a good fit too so no missing lid and wrecked lip stain.

The colour, well where Honey comes from, not at all a honey colour, more a dull pink, somewhere like a heather shimmer colour in Rimmel. A bit like a cross between heather and brown with a touch of pink. For myself, fair skin and blue eyes it suits me and looks more natural.

An item I will be using a lot off when not wanting a glossy thick lipstick for evening wear but just a day to day wearable shade. Seems to be keeping my lips moist too which is needed in this cold weather.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aussie Shower Gel Smoothie - One Whole Family can Use, 6 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nothing not to dislike about this shower gel as whole family can use it.

A bottle that males and the females of the house can use as neither too feminine or masculine, just a clean smelling body wash.

Only gripe I had was it that is it a bit harder than usual body wash I use to get out, but once out it feels and smells nice when applied and washed off. Know it is really meant as a shower wash, but have used it on a body mitt in the bath and works well as that too (had a sticky mark from a heat pack left on back and needed a mitt soaked in body wash to remove it). It got rid of it.

Would buy this if on offer as an item whole family can use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sodial 6 Safety Cones - Brilliant for Puppy Training Uses - Great Value, 4 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got these for doing dog training with our puppy, saw some at our local puppy class and thought at the price with postage worth getting a set for using at home.

Six cones that are flat to the top so no spiking on Nero's tummy when he tries to go around them but end up jumping on it by accident.

Ideal for kids come summer for balls games and such as no hard or sharp edges, even the square bases are not sharp.

They all slot on top of each other, so little space needed for storing, really are good value for money. Did take a little while to arrive but did so within the estimated date and well packed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reseed Ginkgo and Sabal Shampoo - Hopefully Good for Fibromyliga Sufferers, 4 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice fresh smell, monochrome plastic bottle that would not be out of place in either male or female bathroom. Yet it is aimed at women, saying that with most shampoos in our house when I buy them OH tends to use them too.

A small amount is needed for a nice smell and a nice amount of lather. Leave a few seconds like most usual shampoo and rinse off. No nasty reactions from it, no itchy scalp quite important for me with having sensitive skin.

Now this is an item that needs time to see if it actually does as it says..... Yes, it contains various vitamins and other ingredients a vast amount of items which are all contained in the leaflet that comes with it. But above all things that are supposed to do your hair some good and to make those follicles behave and not cause your hair to shed quite as bad. The leaflet does explain a little about hair loss, the average amount etc.

I was more than willing to give this a try as suffering with fibromyalgia, various medications etc causing my hair to be slightly thinner a little, I badly wanted to try out a shampoo to try to ease the thinning. Will have to give it some time as results will not be overnight but can only say now that it smell nice and fresh. Pleasant sensation when using it, a nice lather and hopefully fingers crossed a less in hair shedding.

There are various other items in this range, conditioners, and serums which I suppose when all used together would have a better effect but myself just tend to use a shampoo at the moment so sticking to just that. However if this works and not as much hair loss would consider the conditioner and also buying a bottle of shampoo.

Will update at a later stage say four to six weeks with results.

UPDATE
Well have been using this shampoo now for nearly a month and can honestly say that when brushing my hair before washing it, there is not as many hairs caught up in the brush as there used to be. Nor as many loose ones on my clothes either after giving it a brush through. Yes will keep using it as I feel as though my hair is important to me and with suffering from fibro and slight hair thinning etc with it, well this shampoo seems to be helping. Expensive yes but at least it seems to be doing something for me plus not as many times the plug gets clogged with my hair now.
