Filofax 2016 Week on Two Pages Format English Personal Diary
Filofax 2016 Week on Two Pages Format English Personal Diary
Price: £5.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Year after a year - a necessity!, 2 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once a Filofax user, always a Filofax user. I have been using this particular size and style of Filofax diary for years (week on 2 pages) and I find this layout the most useful. The pages are big enough to write a few notes etc. for yourself.

This is genuine Filofax, good quality paper, cheaper than on the high street and delivered very promptly.

Basically, this is the one and only Filofax replacement block you will need every year - a necessity!


Filofax Personal Vertical Year Planner for 2016
Filofax Personal Vertical Year Planner for 2016
Price: £3.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A year at a glance., 2 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really a MUST for your Filofax. Once I found that there is such a brilliant product, I ordered it immediately. What it does it literally spreads out as a long horizontal stripe and you are able to glance over your whole year. It's not bulky, but it's very practical and helpful. No more trying to figure out what is happening when and leafing through your diary - a great invention!

Measures about 9.5cm x 17.1cm (for your PERSONAL Filofax).

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly explicit AND surprisingly boring., 2 Feb. 2016
How I wanted to love "Diary of a Teenage Girl", this irregular coming of age tale/comedy of dysfunctional family. But it just felt overrated and disappointing. And I thought Kristen Wiig’s talent was brushed under the carpet in this film - and what a shame.

Growing up was never shown in such a heatless nudity. Nobody is likable, yet all of them are whiny and pretty unpleasant. I won’t be re-watching this one, that’s for sure.

2.0 out of 5 stars BLAH., 2 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Before You Die (Paperback)
Have you ever read a BLAH book - well, this is it! I found one so you can skip it. 400 pages of "Before You Die" by Samantha Hayes - and no afterthoughts from me. "Thriller" description misused!

And why "before you die"? Loved it when the authors pull out titles from the ceiling. Wooden, unlikeable characters, implausible plot sucked out of the thumb, boring narrative - my eyes would glaze over, seriously! Okay, the last "twist" was unexpected - but I seriously could not care less by page 400. I don't "hate it" - so 2 stars, but it does not deserve those.

5.0 out of 5 stars So so good!, 1 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Aquarium (Paperback)
I cannot believe how GOOD "Aquarium" is and how under the radar – this is a brilliant, gripping, humane novel which I just could not put down! For the first time in a very long time I did not want the book to end!

David Vann created such likable and precocious 12 years old girl – I had to check if "Aquarium" were written by a woman. The voice of Caitlin is fresh and genuine. The story of her life is simple and yet so complicated.

"Aquarium" a detective story, a love story, a fish-poetry, a family drama, a coming of age tale, a song. What a wonderful book. I feel so inadequate - I simply cannot describe how much I enjoyed it!

I am ordering more of David Vann books immediately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and clever coming of age tale., 1 Feb. 2016
Greta Gerwig grew up (a bit), but she hasn’t lost "it" (not at all!). What a quiet enjoyable comedy (with a bit of screaming drama) "Mistress America" is. Perhaps the end of this coming of age tale is not as fun as the journey, but there are so many hilarious lines and all-around great performances, that you will enjoy this anyway.

"Mistress America" is clever and entertaining and carries the trademark of its director - Noah Baumbach’s fixation on personal catastrophes.


The Lobster [DVD]
The Lobster [DVD]
Dvd ~ Colin Farrell
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb., 1 Feb. 2016
This review is from: The Lobster [DVD] (DVD)
I am speechless – what a gem “The Lobster” is. It’s so weird and intriguing and confusing and revelatory and surreal, and last but not least, it’s the most unexpected and bizarre love story. Come to it with an open mind. You will laugh and you will cry (or just forget to breath with tension!). Superb!

An extra star for Colin Farrell would make it a 6-stars review for me.

Love it, love it, love it! I use lemons daily and finally found a solution for storage! I have one of these at home and one at work (for lemon used for tea). So easy and convenient - don't think - just buy it!

Great! I bought the set to re-plant a number of my house plants - could not be happier! The trowel and weed fork are coloured in bright neon colours and would be great addition to your garden tools box! Really sturdy and of excellent quality. Would definitely buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for school projects! (Not necessarily great for serious art project for adults.), 30 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this pencils to 11 year old for his review. He was truly delighted with the set. His comments: they are gliding softly, they are bright and selection of colours is very good (I received a 65 pencils set + 5 art pencils). They do not break easily - at least none of them broke as yet! All in all, a pretty good alternative to the more expensive artistic sets that are targeted to adults rather than school children. Pencils come in a nice "tumbler" for easy storage.

I guess the price has to be considered. Amazon sells quite good German-made pencils for about one-third of the price of these Chinese ones.
