5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, 11 April 2014
This review is from: Perfect (Paperback)
I really savoured this book. Both sad and amusing in places it keeps you gripped throughout, one of the few books that kept me reading it for hours on end I so wanted to know what happened next to each of the characters. I've just started another of Joyce's books but can't imagine it will be as good as this one. Sad as it was. Excellent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work., 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried a few eye creams and this is the worst when it comes to making the eye area look younger, smoother, brighter. Just a simple potion (calling it a moisturiser is giving it too much credit) with a vague feeling of it being a concealer and a bit of sparkle. Did absolutely nothing for me. I don't really have wrinkles but do have dry skin that needs moisture added, and dark circles under my eyes in Winter. Back to the drawing board for a simple and effective eye cream. If you know of any - please share with the rest of us!

2.0 out of 5 stars There are better, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is basically a few pictures of her daughter and a whole lot of info on Parisienne shops. It's ok. But I wouldn't recommend it if I am honest. I read it, or should I say flicked through it after a few pages and wasn't inspired. There are far berry books available on this subject of the mystery and beauty of French women.

This review is from: Etcetera (Hardcover)
This is probably the best interiors book I own. A must for anyone who loves colour and hates magnolia. I will never get bored of looking into this delightful book. Very clever styling and full of ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fit, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You take a risk ordering clothes on line and I'd say this is on the large side of small. I'm a size 8/10 and have a small frame and this blouse is a bit slip slidey on my shoulders. Nice item though, worth the money paid. It's an off-white colour too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful little book, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I not only love photography but was soon to be off to Amsterdam. Fills both camps and helped me source particular places to see and to get the feel or Amsterdam. Makes a perfect memento too.

My daughter loved this, typically the cheapest of all her Christmas presents! Larger than expected and a great item for you or as a gift.

Had to return my CD as there was no sound. May have been a one-off, granted. Shame as I love his music.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get the gist in The Guardian, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on the back of the series in The Guardian. I think I gained as much from that, as the book, which I stopped reading at some point. That aside, I think this is a Journalist writing about stories he's heard, not a footballer's personal experience. If you know different - name and shame!
