5.0 out of 5 stars Literally the best iphone cover ever!! Miles better than any of the others..., 13 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are, literally, the best iphone covers in the world! A truly brilliant and well designed product, so all credit to what I think is a new and young team that produce them. I bought two, blue for my teenage son and silver for me. We both v pleased with them - the silver one just looks like an integral part of the phone, so is really discrete (which I like), the blue is more noticeable (which he likes). I am about to get a black one for my other son. It is a clever design, just sits on the back of the phone. We've been using them for a couple of weeks and they stay on, no problem (despite no obvious means of adhesion, etc - which is what I mean about clever design...). I thought the price is pretty good to, as they are a class above anything else I've seen or had previously. I would really recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars The series when Modern Family jumps the shark...., 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It had to happen at some point, but this series is when this previously brilliant and nicely-observed comedy loses the plot. There are still some funny and genuinely moving moments (bits of it still make me cry...), but the writing seems to have gone off the boil in a major way. Mitch and Cam have degenerated into a pair of screaming, limp-wristed queens - all flapping hands and shrieking; Gloria is reduced to little more than displaying her breasts, gurning and yelling in the most OTT Colombian accent imaginable. The episode where she won't stop singing to her, as yet, unborn child is truly terrible ('tweenkle, tweenkile leetle lamb....). Minor characters are given a prominence that the writing and their acting abilities doesn't really merit - Luke, Manny and Lily, for example, really aren't that funny or interesting. Even Phil gets a raw deal from the scriptwriter: the episode where he invites a man that he met at the gym home, not realising the latter is gay and thinks it's a date, is just annoying and goes on way too long....Even at its lamest Modern Family is still miles better than many sitcoms, but series 4 is quite a disappointment in this household.

A great waterproof mattress cover - which unlike some is not horrible and sweaty to sleep on. You genuinely won't notice it's there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, quirky film, 28 Jan 2014

This review is from: The Way, Way Back [DVD] (DVD)
If you liked Little Miss Sunshine, Juno, etc, you should buy this. It has the same feel about it - beautifully acted and nicely observed. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Zips broke immediately, 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breathable Storage Bags - Set of 3
Very, very disappointed with the quality of these - almost completely unusable. V poor quality, the zips on two of them broke when I was undoing them to put items in them for the first time, so they are useless. I really really do not recommend you buy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Tastes vile, 27 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The seller sent me the wrong version of this stuff. I have used the mint one for ages, and it's fine. However, this time - entirely wrongly - they sent a citrus and mint flavour, which is seriously nasty. I have used it a couple of times but think I may have to pour it down the sink as it is too foul to use, leaves a really horrible after taste, which is kinda not what you want from a mouthwash that is meant to leave your mouth feeling fresh...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very effective, 27 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have said, these things are a bit weird, but they certainly worked in my case. They are like putting two wet cellophane bags on your feet, quite a strange sensation...I left them on for the full 90 mins. Put thick socks on over the top, which meant I could walk around the house quite safely (albeit I rustled every time I moved). Rinsing off the stuff is easy, and then you just wait, and wait, and wait - for quite a few days before anything happens. Once the skin does start to peel, it goes on for ages and you will be amazed at how much you shed. Think of a snake........For the next week or so, your feet will be a mess ( you definitely could not wear sandals), and look as if they have dandruff, as you shed white flakes of skin every time you take off a pair of socks. Feet are definitely smoother afterwards, although I am not sure that every single bit of hard skin has gone, but I would recommend these. Just make sure you use them a good two or even three weeks before you need to expose your feet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable quality for the money, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got several of these and they are easy to use but the pages do tend to tear quite easily (or maybe I am just a little heavy handed). I think they are fine for every day type photos (if there is such a thing) but if you wanted an album of, say, wedding pics, you might want something a little better quality. They do the job ok.


MOTHER, BABY AND TODDLER BOOK: A UNIQUE GUIDE TO RAISING A BABY ON A HEALTHY VEGETARIAN DIET
MOTHER, BABY AND TODDLER BOOK: A UNIQUE GUIDE TO RAISING A BABY ON A HEALTHY VEGETARIAN DIET
by ROSE ELLIOT
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Rose Elliot is a goddess, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great little book and well worth buying for any veggies you know who are pregnant or have young children. It is practical and helpful, with lost of quick, easy and nutritious recipes for both mother and baby/toddler. My children are whopping great teenagers now, but I still use some of the recipes. If anyone is even slightly nervous about whether they and their baby can have a healthy diet without meat (and people can really try to undermine you when you are pregnant on these things....) this book is the perfect answer. Rose Elliot really knows her stuff and this is full of really good advice and practical tips.
