Price: £9.90 - £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, comfortable and cool looking but another one needing handwash., 19 May 2016
*Please note I was sent a free pair in exchange for writing a review.*

I have had a few pairs of underwear from China and generally they are ok to very good, these are good. The material is 95% cotton and 5% spandex but require hand washing at a low temperature so that may be a deal breaker for any young go getters out there who like to dump everything in their machines.

The sizing is not bad at all, I am a 30 inch waist and slim so I normally get a small size but went for these in medium and they are spot on and are not low rise so are more substantial in feel than some. They look as they appear in the above pictures, I got the light grey ones and I really do like them on. I have washed them once with another pair I bought from Seobean and they are still as new so that is promising. All in all not a bad pair of underwear at all if you can handle the washing aspects.


Sonic Chic Urban Lovehearts Toothbrush
Sonic Chic Urban Lovehearts Toothbrush
Price: £19.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks Good but its style over substance, 18 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The blurb calls this ‘Chic Urban’ and I suppose to certain aesthetic tastes that would be the case. However, it is first and foremost a toothbrush that is supposed to be ‘sonic’. What it is turns out to be is a rather cheap looking and feeling brush that sort of vibrates a bit in your hand and the brushes sort of do too – a bit.

It will clean your teeth in a fashion but unlike say an Oral B, you will have to do most of the work and the instructions even tell you that. It does come with a battery and a spare head but I have had a disposable one from the supermarket that did a much better job and the brushes actually moved. This will stay in the medicine cabinet just in case someone breaks in and steals all the other brushes or I will take it on short trips but I would not rely on this as a main toothbrush.

So it looks quite nice and even ‘funky’, but as a brush it leaves a lot to be desired and I am probably being generous in giving it 3 stars but it will get some use and if it packs in I will report back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Endearing Greek Film, 17 May 2016
This review is from: Xenia [DVD] (DVD)
Dany and Ody are brothers who have not seen each other for a while. Then Dany turns up in Piraeus to tell Ody that their flamboyant Albanian mother has dies and that they need to find their estranged Greek father – and to enter Ody in ‘Greek Star’ – a talent show of all talent shows. Oh yes and to get Greek citizenship and thus avoid being deported.

So begins the odyssey and it is necessary to point out that Dany is gay and fairly extrovert and the film takes a few minutes to warm up and I implore you to stay with it – you will be well rewarded. It has surreal moments to including one with a big bunny rabbit – but ‘Donnie Darko’ this aint.

The enthusiasm for the characters and the care in which they are played shines through the screen. There is also a plethora of supporting players and I loved nearly all of them. Plus we get some great song and dance routines and a soundtrack that makes you want to get up and join in. I simply adored this film it left me in a great mood and I was miffed when it ended such is the fun of this journey. If you do not mind a bit of surrealism and can still believe in dreams or you just want a great loving film then this is one you will not wish to miss.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Band and another slightly ‘great’ album, 17 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paging Mr. Proust (MP3 Download)
I am a bit of a fan and have had this since it was released and have been listening to it since then just to see if it is a stayer like so many of their previous releases. It has a different feel to earlier work but it is still distinctly The Jayhawks. These days it is hardly possible to get an album where there are no tracks you do not like, this is nearly one of such things. However, I just can not get to like ‘Ace’, but it is more than made up by the rest of the tracks.

‘Devil in her eyes’ is just brilliant with great lyrics and a tune to fall in love with and the usual harmonies that make you want to sing along – before you know all the words. ‘I’ll be your key’ is just beautiful and is like lying in the sun on a late summers afternoon – ‘Leaving the monsters behind’ is another one that seems simple in its arrangements and presentation but is a triumph of melody, simplicity and brilliance.

‘Lies in black and white’ is one of those songs that takes a serious subject but makes it sound like a great upbeat song with jangly guitar et al. ‘Lovers of the sun’ is a nice song – very casual and a song that would lift other folk’s albums but just trundles along here. ‘Pretty Roses in your hair’ is a mood changer and it’s a little corker. It has a brooding power that gets to you in an altogether agreeable way. So to sum up this is a good album, by Jayhawks standards though it is not a great one, I am still listening to it though and think that will be the case for a while yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice product but needs to be hand washed, 17 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tend to get my under garments from Next but wanted a change so gave these a go. Straight off I am a 28 to 30 inch waist and fairly slim, so I normally get a ‘small’; in these I got a ‘large’ and they are still on the snug side. So if you are a larger fit then I do not think these are going to fit you so best to avoid.

They are made from 92% cotton and 8% spandex and are really comfy and they look great. They are low rise though and I mean very low so if you are a ‘bad boy’ fashionista and like folk to see your pants as your jeans slide down, then again these will not be for you, as your troosers will be heading south pretty quick before anyone sees your pants.

Now the big draw back is that these have to be washed in cold water by hand. I have in the past stuck similar on a cool wash and got away with it, but if these shrink any amount at all I will have to resort to putting these on one of my novelty garden gnomes. So I have done a hand job on them and they are still as expected. So check your size and if hand washing is a non starter then best look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tense and at times mesmerising tale from Bulgaria., 17 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE LESSON [DVD] (DVD)
Nade is a school teacher of teenagers; her husband is a man who dotes on their daughter but also on the drink bottle. His nefarious carryings on have plummeted them into serious debt. She also has a side line in translating Bulgarian documents into English. Then one day one of her students has her purse stolen. It is obviously one of the class who is the culprit but Nade is unable to get them to fess up.

Now she is presented with some stark choices as to how to pay off her debts and so begins a very harrowing and exhausting as well as emotionally draining journey that had me increasingly gripped.

I have seen some comments that this is a slow start and I have to agree. However, you need to set the ground rules in order for the later events to have the fullest impact and I must say this really delivers. It is in Bulgarian and a bit of English, and runs to 111 minutes; it has also won a slew of awards and I have to say they are all completely deserved – recommended to lovers of European cinema and those who like their films to be a bit deeper.


Oral-B Precision Clean Electric Toothbrush Replacement Heads - Pack of 8
Oral-B Precision Clean Electric Toothbrush Replacement Heads - Pack of 8
Price: £17.81

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Replacement heads for Oral B, 17 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had 5 electric toothbrushes and the Oral B is the best but you have to buy replacement heads. Now I have bought some of the cheaper alternatives including some from ‘Wilco’ and they are ok but not a spot on the real thing. The problem with on line purchases is that you want to know what models these will work with.

So they are compatible with Oral B Pro 600, 650, 1000, 2000, 2500, 3000, 4000, 4900, 5000, 6000, 6500, 7000 CrossAction.
Compatible with Oral B PRO 600, 1000, 2000, 4000, 6000 Trizone.
Compatible with all Oral B Vitality and Vitality Plus Variants. They do not work with Pulsonic, Sonic Complete, Vitality Sonic, CrossAction Power.

These are the ones that are more firm so you should not use if you have sensitive gums or anything similar but I prefer a harder brush. You also get eight and they all have the rubber washer replacement too and are individually packaged so it is easy to take a spare if you are going on holidays or anything.

I love the brush I love the replacement heads and can only highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality Little Post Its., 17 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Where I work we have a cheaper alternative to Post It’s and we have tried three different brands, like Niceday and Guilbert and sad to say they are all pale imitations of the best and that is these. For starters you get 12 pads each having 100 notes and they are in very eye catching shades of pink or orange. They are the tiny ones that I normally use for single reminders – like phone calls etc.

They stick and more importantly can re-stick several times without leaving a nasty mark. The paper is top quality aswell and they are fine if left in direct sunlight for a period, so you can use them in the car etc. If you want quality though you do pay for it, but if you want a product that won’t let you down then this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Secret Army film of the POW’s in Korea., 16 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was made in 1959 as a training aid for British soldiers. It is a re-staging of how captured British soldiers were treated by the People’s Army of China during the Korean War. It is very austere but they use real actors and not people who have used make up to look more Chinese etc and this adds to the authenticity.

At 64 minutes it is quite short but it is very intense. It was also ‘restricted’ viewing and only allowed to be shown to designated military personnel. As such it is remarkably realistic. There are depictions of torture throughout and aspects of brain washing. It is not overly violent though but it still has a lot of impact.

It is also in black and white and has very few persons that you will have heard of. However, those who are eagle eyed may spot and early role for Wilfred Bramble before he became Steptoe. This is a great watch for anyone interested in film and or military history and I have to say I found it fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and versatile back pack, 16 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 3:12 Mins

Please Note I received this in exchange for a review.
I got one in green and just wanted to say it is extremely useful. It has a main compartment that is separated with a waterproof liner. The outside part is also divided and both are double zipped with ergonomic handles that make it easy to open and indeed close.

The two side pockets are elasticiated so are great for water bottles etc. There is a small waterproof compartment on the bottom and a little pouch on the very back which are very nice additions. It is very lightweight and has a mesh back that stops you getting all sweaty when wearing. It also has a chest and a waist strap to ensure stability whilst wearing. It is not a bag for laptops as it is tapered in design, but is still capacious enough for a day’s hiking, biking or any other activity.

It is not that reflective so that should be borne in mind if you are in need of such. I have also made a short video (if it uploads) which tells you in better detail what this nice rucksack has to offer.
