Brabantia Sort & Go Waste Bin, Plastic, Yellow, 6 Litre
Brabantia Sort & Go Waste Bin, Plastic, Yellow, 6 Litre
Price: £16.95

4.0 out of 5 stars The baby of the family..., 26 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
...a handy size for the kitchen work surface.

~ SIZE : 6L

♦ brabantia
♦ 109683
♦ SORT & GO WASTE BIN, complete with a pack of 10 COMPOSTABLE BAGS (code S/6L)

COLOUR : YELLOW with BLACK handle

10 YEAR GUARANTEE

This is not the sunny yellow I was expecting like the fabric laundry bag; there is a touch of green to this shade, to my eye, so I will be taking the ‘Hide it in a drawer’ option rather than attaching it to a wall or freestanding out on show!

Designed to mix & match with the 2 larger sizes currently available, the handy-sized 6L waste bin arrived simply in a plastic bag in a strong cardboard outer carton, for safe transit.
With rounded edges, the waste bin measures around 25.0 cm x 19.25 cm x 18 cm high...43 cm allowing for full clearance of the removable lid.
It is relatively lightweight in hand, has a sturdy, comfortable handle and a useful grip area on the bottom.

‘brabantia’ embossed – front and lid.

Inside the waste bin is everything you need to get composting: a pack of 10 bin liners, a plastic-type mounting bracket + a pack of 3 screws, along with a product registration booklet.

Simply remove the hinged lid, insert the bin liner, replace lid. Lift the flap to deposit when required.
Alternatively, the lid flap can be left open.

Easy wipe clean.

Multi-lingual instructions are supplied.

Compostable Bin Liners, code S/6L

Other colours currently available in this handy size include:

WHITE
GREY
MINT

ooOoo

Manufacturer detail:

‘Ideal to dispose of compostable waste on your counter-top.
Can be used wall mounted of standing on your floor – with support bracket.
Matching 100% compostable bin liners available (code S) – easy to fit.
10 year guarantee and service’

From the COMPOST BAG wrapper:

‘Bin liners are made of certified compostable material and can go on the compost heap.
Please contact your waste processing agency first to check the latest regulations for disposal of compostable bin liners in the usual organic waste bin.
The packaging is made of normal plastic (PE) and must be disposed with normal waste!
Made in Belgium.’

This arrived in a box measuring around 53 cm x 35 cm x 23 cm and in a sturdy outer carton for safe transit.
The machine measures around 30 cm x 18 cm x 50 cm high (allowing for full tilt of the grill).

Not particularly obvious, but the control panel has a plastic covering which needs removing before use. It is also necessary to check that the filter is clicked fully into place, once the machine is extracted from the close fitting box.
The flex is around 2.15 M long, with UK plug.

This is my first experience with this brand and I have to say that I am quite impressed.
I am comparing this directly to the performance of the EcoAir DD122 SIMPLE Desiccant Dehumidifier, 7 L, which was the market leader at the time of purchase and which I have been using for over two years.

I am not qualified in the technicalities of how humidifiers work, and the product description is usefully detailed and backed up by the instruction manual. Suffice to say that I am always shocked at how much water is extracted in a relatively short period of time from daily use.
The operating instructions are clear in the booklet, which recommends:

★ ‘Use on a daily basis in your home to keep the humidity to a healthy level of approximately 55%RH.
Bacteria and mould will not breed at this level.’

I like the electronic louvre/oscillation functionality and the ability to set the timer on this dehumidifier.
The recommended setting is ‘Auto-mode, which will find an efficient and economical way to run automatically according to the relative humidity and temperature. Use this mode for maximum energy saving and for quieter operation.’
It is still a noticeable noise, IMO, but I am very sensitive in this area.

The machine is relatively easy to pick up and move by the handle, has anti-tilt functionality and a shut-off feature when the tank is full.
The water tank slides out to the right at the bottom, when it comes to emptying. This tank has 3 L capacity although this is quite heavy in hand so I would recommend being close to a bucket or sink. The tank is easy to put back in place.

The air filter pulls up & out easily and it is recommended that it is cleaned every two weeks ‘with a vacuum cleaner only (as washing will weaken the germicidal effect of the filter).’

Running costs I am not in a position to monitor.

Overall, an impressive machine.
Compared to my old EcoAir (last two images) : the two are practically the same size & weight, have simple to use controls and easy to empty/replace water tanks.
Arguably, there is a slightly more industrial look to the Igenix, and it doesn’t have the continuous drain facility of the EcoAir...plus, the rounded handle is slightly more comfortable in hand on the EcoAir.
The Igenix does benefit from the slightly longer flex, the larger water collection tank and I simply love that cool electronic louvre!

Koh I noor Mondeluz Aquarell Colouring Pencil - Yellowish Green
Koh I noor Mondeluz Aquarell Colouring Pencil - Yellowish Green
Price: £0.85

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely shade of green, 26 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...and a great opportunity to buy a single pencil to 'try it & see' ~ this is currently part of the ‘Amazon Add-On Programme’.

♦ KOH-I-NOOR HARDTMUTH
♦ MONDELUZ AQUARELLE COLOUR PENCIL
♦ 3720/22: YELLOWISH GREEN

SINGLE PENCIL

It came well packed in a strong cardboard outer, well lined with paper and is presented in a plastic-type sheath with the product code sticker on that rather than the pencil, so no annoying over-sticky residue that is so hard to get off.

The elegant, hexagonal-barrelled pencil is around 17.5 cm in length and comes ready to use, with a lovely point.
The barrel is close to the colour shade for the best part with a BLACK flash, before a 1.5 cm, matte gold-coloured dipped, rounded end.

In shiny gold-coloured lettering on one side is:

★ ‘KOH-I-NOOR ~ HARDTMUTH ~ MONDELUZ ~ PAINTBRUSH EMBLEM ~ 3720/22’

The last number is the colour code - the name of the colour is not on the pencil.
On another side is more subdued barcode detailing.

In my experience, the core is lovely & soft and a layer of the shade is achieved without too much pressure if using as a regular colouring pencil albeit with a little residue, depending on the texture of the paper. The shade name does not disappoint with that hint of yellow.
Online tutorials show the versatility of this type of pencil, especially as a watercolour.

The pencil sharpens up well with a quality sharpener and as the core is soft it does need a fair bit but you don’t lose half the pencil in the process, in my experience.

Other colours currently available, singly, include:

SAPPHIRE BLUE
VERMILLION RED
DARK OCHRE
PEA GREEN
FRENCH PINK
ICE BLUE
WINDSOR VIOLET 2
PERSIAN ORANGE
BORDEAUX RED

Vogue Goes Pop Colouring Book
Vogue Goes Pop Colouring Book
by Iain R Webb
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.50

5.0 out of 5 stars The 60s revisited..., 24 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
...inspired by the pages of a magazine.

‘Go crazy with your crayons...Go Pop!’

Following on from the well received VOGUE COLOURING BOOK:

♦ VOGUE GOES POP COLOURING BOOK
♦ IAIN R WEBB
♦ CONRAN OCTOPUS
♦ PAPERBACK WITH DUST COVER
♦ 2016

Measuring in around 22 cm x 28.5 cm x 1 cm, this is a quality book with matte paperback covers in simply black & white, dressed with a shiny dust cover bringing in a bit of colour to ‘VOGUE’ and a psychedelic foil effect for ‘GOES POP’.

Inside are 96 crisp white, numbered pages with black hand-drawn outlines, interspersed with paragraphs of text, i.e. original captions, e.g.:

From page 73:

‘February 1969

Crisp new coat with the softest pattern – a big, blurry, beautiful watercolour plaid, sea-blue, chrome yellow on pure cream wool. By Mansfield at Harrods. Creamy velvet hat from Malyard. Sweater by Munrospun, Town & Country Clothes. Cream leather gauntlets by Kir. Cream mossy crepe tights by Mary Quant. Little white shiny Living Skin boots from Elliotts.’

I am not particularly interested in fashion, magazines or the 60s, but I love the style of this book, which stands out from the crowd.
The author dedicates the book to his sister, Mary...'She was my original fashion icon... :

'For 'Vogue Goes Pop' I have focused on the 1960s, a decade I experienced through my sister Mary's wardrobe. Throughout the decade, she moved from beatnik black mohair and white lipstick to swirling rainbow-coloured Op Art prints stitched into shockingly short shift dresses that she made herself...
...So, enjoy revisiting the decade that gave fashion the mini-skirt, the discotheque dress, kinky boots and the craziest of colour combinations...’

A great book in which to let your mind run riot!
There are colouring-in opportunities to satisfy any mood: from the more intricate to those with larger areas or a background and a selection in between, e.g. the word 'VOGUE'.
Some captions suggest the colours you could use, even by specific shade such as that aforementioned CHROME YELLOW...or SAFFRON, from page 56. Of course any old shade of yellow will do, or any other colour, if preferred!
There are no rules in your own colouring book, which you can sign off on page 3.

The book is well laid out with the spine edges being easy to get to. The full-page illustrations are on both sides of the page. The cover illustrations of 'Twiggy' is also on page 15, offering the chance to copy the suggested colours from the dust cover, the caption detail or do your own thing.

I only use colouring pencils in my books, so cannot comment on bleed-thru from anything else.

The introduction on page 5 further summarises the ideas behind the book with the last page accrediting the various photographers that inspired the drawings.

Post-it Index Flags - Dual Pack 25mm - Orange (50 Flags x 2)
Post-it Index Flags - Dual Pack 25mm - Orange (50 Flags x 2)
Price: £3.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful, 23 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
♦ 3M
♦ 680-O2EU
♦ Post-it® Index Flags
♦ Dual Pack
♦ SIZE : 25 mm
♦ 100 FLAGS altogether, in two neat little dispensers

COLOUR : ORANGE

Given the RRP, I don’t think I would have tried these if the offer of the BLUE ones hadn’t come along, but I am very impressed and delighted to have another opportunity, as I find another use for these handy little flags.
Recipe marking in my favourite books has been the latest project.
The problem is...can I now stop...when there are more colours to choose from, namely:

GREEN
YELLOW
RED
BRIGHT BLUE
PURPLE
PINK

or really mix it with a two-colour pack, e.g.:

YELLOW & GREEN

The little presentation pack is perforated, handily splitting into two so you can keep one sealed for later use.
Each half measures around 6.75 cm x 4 cm and has a rigid, plastic-type front for protection.
On opening, they are ready to use and as you pull one out, the next one pops up.

Each flag measures around 2.5 cm x just short of 4.4 cm overall with the non-sticky, coloured area around 2.5 cm x 1.5 cm. I have been writing on them using a regular biro but there is a ‘Post-it® Index Flag Pen available.

The flags are easy-peel and repositionable without losing any sticky or pulling away anything they have been stuck to, in my experience so far, and some have been on & off a number of times through choice. The sticky bit is transparent so you can read anything behind it without having to remove it. Alternatively, it is possible to write on this piece, e.g. ‘Please sign here’, further drawing the eye as per the example on the front of the pack.
Sometimes I like to use a highlighter pencil on this area, too...so there is definitely no danger of anything getting missed!

There is a picture guide to use on the back of the pack.

KOH-I-NOOR Round Highlighter Pencil - Yellow
KOH-I-NOOR Round Highlighter Pencil - Yellow
Price: £8.50

4.0 out of 5 stars NEON YELLOW x 12 PENCILS, 22 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
♦ PRODUCT CODE : 3411/1
♦ KOH-I-NOOR
♦ HARDTMUTH
♦ OFFICE COLLECTION
♦ HIGHLIGHTER PENCIL
♦ BOX of 12 ~ ALL THE SAME COLOUR

COLOUR : YELLOW

Measuring in around 17.5 cm x 4.5 cm x 1.5 cm, this is a cardboard box of 12 x full-length, quality pencils from KOH-I-NOOR.

Each round-barrelled pencil is around 17.5 cm in length and comes ready to use, with a lovely point.
The barrel is CREAMY WHITE with a 2.5 cm BLACK flash before the rounded, dipped end pertaining to the colour.
On the barrel, along with the barcode detail is:

★ ‘KOH-I-NOOR ~ DRY MARKER ~ 3411/ 1’

In practice, I have had mixed results with this particular product but it was extremely good value for a dozen pencils, as part of the ‘Amazon Add-On Programme’, when I ordered.
One could be forgiven for thinking that there are different colours in the box due to the pictures thereon, but the actual colour is flagged on the box, with the code number, in this case ~ 3411/1.

I find these great for highlighting on thin paper when I don’t want colour going through to the back of the page and they are brilliant used in conjunction with my new ‘Post It Flags’, to further draw attention to an area of text.
The colour doesn’t seem to fade and doesn’t rub out, in my experience so far.
On a rougher texture, the pencil can feel a bit ‘scratchy’ at times and a few layers are needed to develop a strong colour. The core produces a fair bit of residue in such cases and I am sure artists could put this to good use!

The pencils sharpen up easily with a quality sharpener and you can achieve a fairly lethal point, if required, but the tip tends to break quite easily.

The box of pencils came wrapped in bubble-wrap and well protected in a strong cardboard outer for safe transit.

Other colours currently available (also in boxes of 12):

ORANGE : / 2
RED : / 3
PINK : / 4
GREEN : / 5

5.0 out of 5 stars His & Hers..., 21 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
...or in ‘Paper Mate’ speak:

‘BUSINESS INKS (x 2) + FASHIONABLE INKS’ (x 1)

♦ PAPERMATE
♦ INKJOY
♦ QUATRO
♦ 4-COLOUR
♦ RETRACTABLE BALLPOINT PENS
♦ ‘ULTRA SMOOTH INK’
♦ 1.0 MM/MEDIUM TIP

The three pens come in a shaped blister pack measuring around 19 cm x 9.5 cm.

It is so handy to carry one pen with the ability to select different colours at the push of a button.
Round-barrelled, the functional shirt clip stops them from rolling far and these have a rubberised grip, which I found did take a bit of getting used to but, once I did, I like it.
Colour selection is easy and when another is required, simply press down on that colour.

Each pen is around 14 cm in length.
On one side of the barrel in silver-coloured lettering:

♦ ‘PAPER MATE ~ INK JOY ~ QUATRO ~ 1.0 ~ M’

The little red ball protection on each colour is easy to remove if it doesn’t come away when you first start writing.
In use, the pens are very smooth with the ink flowing freely just as promised on the pack:

‘Spread joy through writing with Paper Mate InkJoy!
Paper Mate InkJoy Ballpoint (Quatro) pens are:

• Smooth (our ink flows as your thoughts so writing’s never a drag.)
• Available in two colours (Business in one pen; Party in another!)'

The ‘BUSINESS’ version has the rubberised section in LIGHT GREY and the FOUR INK colours are as you would expect:

★ BLACK
★ BLUE
★ RED
★ GREEN

The ‘FASHIONABLE’ version has the rubberised section in a LILAC colour and the FOUR INK colours are:

✩ TURQUOISE
✩ LILAC
✩ PINK
✩ LIME

ooOoo

Manufacturer Detail:

• ‘The technology of InkJoy: a unique blend of ultra-low viscosity inks and optimised writing tips gives you crisp, clean lines and unparalleled smoothness.
• The art of InkJoy: a range of sleek and modern pen designs houses a rich palette of vivid ink colours to dazzle your writing imagination.
• 1 mm point gives you a nice, solid, smooth line for general writing.
• Made in China’

ooOoo

I never thought I would say this but "Move over Old Faithful/s".
Although slightly chunkier to hold than the BiCs, I prefer the ink in these InkJoys, especially if using for small areas of block colouring.
The overall package also looks just that little bit more trendy.
