AmazonBasics Poly Cotton  Duvet Set with 1 Pillowcase, Single - Red Stripes
AmazonBasics Poly Cotton Duvet Set with 1 Pillowcase, Single - Red Stripes
Price: £11.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A comfortable (large) pillowcase and stripy duvet set, 13 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a set of one duvet cover and one pillowcase from the Amazon Basics range. They both have a design of red stripes on white, with the occasional larger stripe, larger gap and darker red stripe to help break up the pattern.

The duvet cover is big enough for an average single-sized duvet and it fastens up with four buttons at the end. Both the cover and the pillow case are made from a 2:1 mixture of cotton and polyester. If you use two pillows to sleep on, your initial thought would be why do they supply only one pillow case. The answer is that the pillow case is big enough for two pillows to fit inside it. Unless you are using brand new pillows, which can start off with a greater volume and then flatten a bit over time, you should not have a problem.

It is well made, good quality, and – most importantly – very comfortable.


Go Stationery Camden Floral Magazine File
Go Stationery Camden Floral Magazine File
Price: £7.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, 11 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a sturdy magazine file. I had expected it to be flat packed, but it comes as is, which means a larger box for transit but also for a steadier file, which can stand on its own without side support and will not easily tip over from the weight of a magazine or book leaning to one side. Its floral pattern is fairly unobtrusive, and the pink inside of the box catches the eye more. There is a metal name tag holder on the front but, at least in the one I received, no card so presumably you have to cut one to size yourself. The inside of the box seemed well made, with the outer cover glued well onto the pink interior.


Go Stationery Banksy A5 Man with Flowers Notebook
Go Stationery Banksy A5 Man with Flowers Notebook
Price: £3.50

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Banksy, 8 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This ruled notepad has really good quality paper. It is wire bound, making it easy to tear pages out if you need to. The Banksy design on the front is actually printed on a tough sheet of clear plastic, and is the same situation on the back. A lot of people will like this for the very fact that it is a Banksy design. It's not likely to ever become a collectors' item, being a mass produced notebook, but to many people it could be a desirable object anyway.


Go Stationery Shimmer A6 Gold Polka Dots Notebook - Pink
Go Stationery Shimmer A6 Gold Polka Dots Notebook - Pink
Price: £5.50

3.0 out of 5 stars "Could try harder", 8 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This little notebook has Mothers' Day Present or Young Daughter written all over it, although not literally because that would be weird. It is pocket sized and has a pink cover decorated with gold polka dots. The paper is good quality and when you write on one page it doesn't show all that much overleaf. I wasn't all that impressed with the flimsy and unimaginative cover and whilst another notebook by the makers of this has an elastic strip to keep it firmly shut when not in use, this one does not, where maybe it should have done.


Go Stationery Owls A5 Notebook - Teal
Go Stationery Owls A5 Notebook - Teal
Price: £7.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Owls, 8 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the kind of notebook you buy someone as a gift, and as such I will not waste your time by talking about the price, which you can see for yourself at the top of the page and make your own decision about. The notebook is A5 size and has rounded edges. That and the patchwork owl design on the front and back cover means it is probably designed for children. An elastic strip keeps the book closed when not in use. The paper is lightly ruled and is of good quality. Using a biro, it hardly made any impression on the page underneath and using a marker pen there was almost no seep-through. The inside front and inside back are pink with white polka dots. There are no perforations for tearing pages out, but if you're looking to tear pages out you're probably better suited with an economy notebook. As a gift, and as something meant to be looked after, this notebook is very appealing.


Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 5 User - Licence Key (PC)
Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 5 User - Licence Key (PC)
Offered by Esale Express
Price: £20.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Professional look and feel, 6 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The software comes on a CD with a code supplied on printed card. I am using it on a laptop running Windows 10. I had to uninstall antivirus from a different provider as part of the installation process and it didn't want to go quietly but the Kaspersky installer managed to cope with that rival version's reluctance and after loading the software it accepted the code and updated the protection database. In under an hour from starting I was protected with the new software. The interface of the software is clear and user friendly. The four main options are Scan, Update, Safe Money (for protection of online payments) and Parental Control. The remaining licence days are displayed and there is an Additional Tools button which brings up a whole raft of options along with a usage monitor. It includes cloud protection and a browser configuration tool, the ability to make a rescue disc and remotely manage other connected devices. It's working well for me so far and sometimes it's the simple things that catch your attention, such as the progress bar on the scanning tool which gives me a good idea of how long it will take before it finishes.


Elastoplast Fabric Extra Flexible Strips - Pack of 10, Total 100
Elastoplast Fabric Extra Flexible Strips - Pack of 10, Total 100
Price: £15.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Stretchy and have a good hold, 6 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Coming in packs of 5 by 2 joined strips, these plasters are easy to carry around with you. The strips are airtight and easy to get into… as long as you know how you're supposed to do it. On my first attempt I tried to tear the packet sideways, not realising there's a flap you peel down from. Seeing as the whole point about plasters is you want to get into them quickly without stopping to study the wrapping, a nice big arrow would not have gone amiss.

The plasters themselves are very good. They stretch and they hold, and as the box claims, they work well on joints. They can take a lot of movement and may turn up slightly at the edges over time, but they stay on. I'm not really a fan of boxes that only have the one size of plaster available to you, but for what these are – and they are indeed very good on joints – these are worth their place in the first aid box.

This review is from: Hello (MP3 Download)
I first heard this song in the car whilst driving – it was on the first day it was officially played on the radio – and it was as if all the world melted away and I was entranced. I can remember seeing it on the faces of some of the other drivers passing by me on the other side of the road – they were in exactly the same place as I was, experiencing the same thing. Adele is a brilliant singer songwriter and this song is haunting.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the original, and I love this too, 30 Dec. 2015

This review is from: Tom's Diner (MP3 Download)
My initial reaction to hearing that Giorgio Moroder was going to take on Tom's Diner was excitement, as I love the song and I know what he is capable of. Then I found out that instead of being a remix of the original Suzanne Vega recording, vocals were going to be provided by Britney Spears. I have no strong feeling about her vocals one way or the other, but the thought of anyone other than Suzanne Vega singing on this song in such a way that I might actually like it seemed inconceivable to me. And then I heard it, I instantly loved it and months later I still love it. Giorgio's version is a lot of fun and slightly irreverent, and it stands apart from and yet complements the original as much as the Pet Shop Boys did to Elvis on Always On My Mind (okay, technically Elvis covered the song too, but you know what I mean). Having a different vocalist works in the song's favour, and as a fan of Suzanne Vega's original, I love this new version too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally entrancing, 30 Dec. 2015

This review is from: Alive (MP3 Download)
I can't remember the last time I heard such raw and powerful expression of emotion in a song, and yet at the same time found it so uplifting and life affirming. It sits next to Adele's Hello on my play list, and Banks' Better. Three of the most emotionally entrancing songs of 2015.
