3.0 out of 5 stars Some nice recipes but not really what I was expecting, 19 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had high hopes for this book, as my husband and I are trying to cut back on processed sugars. I will say in the savoury sections there are some nice simple recipes which we've tried and they have come out nice (the sea bass and rainbow salad ones are easy and tasty). But let's be honest, those recipes don't have sugar anyway. There are a few others I want to try, but I think this book is a bit misleading in it's claims of 5 weeks to sugar free. It's fine for a fiver, you'll find a few things to try I'm sure, but if you are looking to go sugar free, this is probably not the best book for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now hooked on Amoretti syrups!, 19 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the first coffee syrup I tried from Amoretti and it is delicious! I love that it comes with a pump, and with the pumpkin spice one you need maybe 1.5 to 2 pumps (I use a pretty big mug too) to get the flavour right. It's delicious, what more can I say?

4.0 out of 5 stars It's strangely satisfying for HOMM fans!!!, 17 Jun. 2010
Okay, I admit it, I liked Heroes of Might and Magic. I can't help being a strategic thinker, and these games appeal to me much more than the "rush into a hoarde of zombies without thinking" ones. So when I read reviews about this game comparing it to HOMM, I thought I'd give it a go. Downloaded the demo first from Steam, finished that over a weekend and still wanted more. Amazon had it for a very reasonable price so why not? It's really fun, sometimes repetitive but I don't spend hours and hours playing it. Just a bit here and there, so I can savor it.

There's lots to explore, and fight, and different beasties you can have in your army. I have pirates and sea dogs at the moment, with some archers and magicians. I'm a long way from finished yet, but already looking forward to the sequel Armored Princess!

Beneath a Darkening Moon
Beneath a Darkening Moon
by Keri Arthur
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fighting the beast inside - and the beast is winning!, 17 Jun. 2010
This was the second book I have read by Keri Arthur, and admittedly it is a bit of soft werewolf porn but I still enjoyed it. The characters from the first book still take the lead role in this one, Savannah and Neva are as headstrong as ever. There is a murder plot, like in the last one. Some readers of the first book have slated it, a bit too harshly I think. The story is interesting, and I think if you "get" the metaphor for werewolves as the beast we all struggle with then you'll like it. Reminds me a bit of Laurell Hamilton, smutty, but in a fun way!

I could really relate to Vannah as the wolf with a strict upbringing who was still struggling with her sexuality. I will probably take a stab (ha ha) at one of Keri's vamp books now, as the reviews I have read seem to imply those were written later, and perhaps have slightly better character development. Still, I did enjoy the "Moon" series, and would recommend it to those of you who enjoy a bit of blood with your sex.

3.0 out of 5 stars More tourism than trains, but still a decent watch., 30 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been to both Madrid and Paris, but not in between I was curious to see the highlights of the train ride. The dvd starts in Paris, where they spend a considerable amount of time showing off Paris. Too much time, in my opinion, considering the dvd is only an hour long. The train ride starts just about dusk, so you don't get to see much of the beginning. Leaving Paris is just like leaving London or any other large city, it's fairly boring to begin with. Some of the footage is from inside the train, the sleeping quarters and passengers eating and drinking. There wasn't much focus on the train itself. The scenery from the train ride also could have been better, I don't recall seeing too much in France (maybe because it was night) and of course in the morning they were in Spain and it was pretty barren looking. Overall, I think they could have done a much better job on this dvd. It is watchable, but I had higher expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect casting makes this show a winner!!!, 30 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I admit it, I was totally hooked on this show from the start. I'm a sucker for legend, myth and magic and the actors they picked for this are so spot on. It's not a documentary, or even a docudrama, but it is great entertainment. The characters were picked so that modern teenagers (young adults, and even some of us not so young adults) could relate to them. Merlin is lovable, Arthur is honourable, Morganna is gorgeous, and Uther is, well Uther. The series is well thought out, brilliantly acted, and believable (as much as a fantasy type story with dragons and knights can be believed).

As a bonus you get an extras disc with interviews and like a cast cam thing. It is hilarious, and you will love the actors even more after watching it, they are so very cheeky! I hope the BBC keep this series going, it's a real winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the money you can't beat Page Plus X3!!, 14 Jan. 2009
I used this software in my last job. Okay, I wasn't expecting much for £60, but my boss wasn't willing to shell out for Adobe or Quark. For the money this software just blew me away. First of all, you can edit PDF files and save them as commercially ready print files. I had some PDF files from the previous year, business cards, promotional items etc. I was able to change what I wanted to while retaining the "look" ie. company logo and colour scheme. I knocked up designs in an afternoon that would have cost hundreds of pounds (I know because I sourced the designs beforehand). I sent them to the printers and had them check the specs to make sure, but everything was great.

The software is very user friendly, once you get into it, it reminds me of Quark actually. Very easy to change colour schemes, and doing flyers, e-shots, brochures and other marketing collateral is a breeze. If you have a small business you really could do much worse than getting PagePlus. I have used MS Publisher in the past, but found the output for this software much better. You can crop and change photos in the design, do unusual font effects (and fonts on paths), and move things around quick and easy.

Nothing but good things to say about this one! Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of little reminders of just how fab Britain is!!!, 14 Jan. 2009
Who hasn't bought a calendar before? What are you, still chiselling marks on the cave wall? Like most people I usually buy a calendar or two, you know the kind, one big picture a month. Wow, how exciting.

This calendar is different, I like that, different is good. It has lots and lots of pictures, a good variety, architecture, scenic places, landmarks, unusual things. Reminds me of why I like this country.

Plus enough space to write stuff in the days. I do need that in a calendar. I'm well chuffed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A convincing argument for "new" marketing, 14 Jan. 2009
Anyone with a career in marketing can certainly benefit from reading this book. Especially if like me, you graduated before the internet changed the face of marketing. I haven't had my head stuck in the sand for the last ten years, far from it. But what David M Scott gets right is that he shows you how to successfully incorporate blogs and forums into your marketing plan. He also defines buyer personas by giving examples you can understand. He writes in an informal way that the masses can easily digest. Not that the masses will read it mind you.

Some things are common sense, web content for one. But social media tagging and podcasting might not be so easily understood by everyone. I find a number of little gems in here, things that I have researched and written articles on myself. It does prompt you to learn more, and that's not a bad thing. Highly enjoyable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Food that is big on flavour and easy to prepare, 19 Feb. 2008
For me, Pret is a British institution. I fell in love with Pret while taking graphic design courses in London. It was between my school and a really nice park. I admit, I did try other places to grab a bite, but none compared in freshness and taste like Pret. I even converted my husband, who is most fond of the hoisin duck wrap and banana cake.

Fast forward to me finishing school and getting a job where there are no sandwich shops anywhere around. Insanely bored of bringing sandwiches in, and feeling nostalgic for the good old days of central London and my park, I picked up the Pret A Manger cook book. Oh yes, there it is, easy to prepare lunch stuff that tastes great. I love it. Who knew that a few simple ingredients could make me so happy (Pret does, which is why they are good at what they do). My husband just made me the carrot cake for my birthday and it was delicious!! I made the banana cake and it too was lovely, but I would recommend putting the frosting in the fridge to thicken it up slightly. I am personally looking forward to summer now, the salads all look wonderful. If you work near a Pret, I envy you, but if not this is an inspirational book for anyone seeking a fresh alternative to another day of ham on white bread!
