Auraglow GU10 Remote Controlled Colour Changing LED Light Bulb
Auraglow GU10 Remote Controlled Colour Changing LED Light Bulb
Offered by Safield Dist. Ltd
Price: £27.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought my first Auraglow bulb some years ago to project a colour-changing 'mood light' onto an expanse of white wall. It works brilliantly and compares well with a Phillips product which cost £99 at the time. Everyone who sees this light wants one.

Prices of these bulbs have since come down a lot, and I now have four as downlighters. They transform a room into something akin to an ultra-trendy nightclub. Get each on 'flash' mode and the kids can have a little disco.

A point to note is that these bulbs are slightly longer than a standard GU10, therefore might not fit snugly into a downlighter recess, depending on how well this has been fitted. I've had to play around with a few in order to get the bulb to sit properly.

Each bulb is supplied with an individual controller, but just one controller will operate all of the bulbs, leaving a couple as spares.


Desigual Women's VEST_BLOU_41V2834 Dress Black - Schwarz (Negro) 16 (Brand size: XL)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very flattering dress, 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice to see Desigual for sale on Amazon at vaguely sensible prices. I love these clothes but they are hideously expensive at full price for what they are.

I liked this dress so much I bought it in white as well. The A-line shape is very flattering, with the frill at the hem for added movement. It washes well (on the 'gentle' cycle although the label states 'hand wash only'), dries quickly and doesn't need ironing if pulled into shape and dried on a hanger.

It is a tad low cut for work, but that's easily remedied with a vest underneath. Size 16 is generous, especially over the bust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for combining and masking the taste of pills, 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My partner has to take a quantity of awful-tasting tablets on a daily basis. I hit on the idea of of sticking these inside a gelatine capsule to mask the taste, and amazingly I found the capsules on Amazon. Good prices and very prompt service from The Alchemists Apothecary too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality item, with prompt delivery from 'Woolovers', 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is huge though. I'd say that what's described as a 'Large' is size 18/20 easily. Follow the measurement guide provided (I did) and even then go for a size smaller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous bag, 26 Aug 2014
This review is from: Envirosax Bag - Bloom Bag 3
I have a few of these in different designs for different handbags. People are always asking me where I bought them.

I haven't seen anything like them on the High Street.

Great stocking filler Christmas present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read the instructions!, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You need to read the instructions since the lights themselves aren't at all intuitive, and it would be easy to think they aren't working. Not so.

Bought for an outside terrace, thus far they seem to be holding up well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small on the bust, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the dress but it was too small on the bust. Perhaps a one-off 'glitch' as other Desigual styles are quite generous.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the few Desigual styles which works well for the busty, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If anything, it's too large on the bust.

However it hangs well, is just the right length (on the knee), and should be reasonably easy to take in a bit up top.

Sizing is generous: I'd say that if you were UK size 20 this would still fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last - a dandruff shampoo which actually *cleans* your hair, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I never would have believed that a product intended for horses would work so well on human hair, but yet it does.

Moreover, cleans, without having to use handfuls of the stuff. I have long hair but a 10 pence sized blob is all that's needed to get a good lather.

Good value at £4 for a 473ml bottle, I'd say.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The coffee resulting from these is watery, stale-tasting and bitter.

A bargain basement substitute for proper nespresso - admittedly with a bargain basement price tag - however I won't be buying these again.
