5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Silk Pillowcase, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been sleeping with satin or silk pillowcases since childhood. As some of my acetate satin pillowcases have worn due to age, I thought I would go back to a silk one. This 19 Momme Charmeuse Silk Pillowcase is amazing. It has the texture and feel of what I always preferred about the synthetic 'satin' fabrics (cool to the touch & so silky). But since it is 100% silk, it just feels EVEN better.

I only bought one (as opposed to the set of 2) simply to make sure the pillowcase had the feel I was looking for. It did not disappoint. I am relieved that I now have somewhere to get my pillowcases again!


Little Bear - Little Bear And The Cup Cakes [DVD]
Little Bear - Little Bear And The Cup Cakes [DVD]
Offered by SweetBuzzards
Price: £4.96

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best children's programs out there, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After watching a few of the 'Little Bear' episodes on Netflix, our 3 year old was hooked on Little Bear. The series is based upon the books written by Else Holmelund Minarik in the 1950s and originally illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Little Bear is always exploring and learning new things with his friends Cat, Duck, Hen & Owl. There are also his parents: Mother Bear and Father Bear; Grandmother Bear and Grandfather Bear. There is also his human friend, Emily, her doll Lucy and Emily's grandmother, Granny. Occasionally Little Bear goes on an adventure and meets a new friend, too. All of the Little Bear episodes contain thoughtful stories which teach values, friendship and caring for others. It is one of 2 programs (Maisy Mouse being the other) where I feel comfortable/safe allowing our child to watch unattended. Really lovely to give to others as a gift, too.

This DVD contains the following episodes:
Little Bear & the Cupcakes
Little Bear's Tooth
Little Red Riding Hood
Little Bear's Garden
Prince Little Bear
A Painting for Emily
Follow the Leader
Little Scarecrow Bear
Little Bear & the Baby

Each episode is about 8 minutes in length.

I highly recommend this for any parent/aunt/uncle/grandparent/close friend to give to a child from age 2+.

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing everyday & night time facial moisturiser/cream, 19 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the slight smell of almonds with this face cream. It is also a pretty thick moisturiser/cream for the face - which I prefer.

One 30ml tube lasts me about 2 months using it everyday morning & night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product at a good price, 19 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used to replace our 8 cup in various makes of Cafetieres - not just La Cafetiere branded ones.

Fits perfectly, sturdy Pyrex glass. Good stuff!

Still only just cheaper than buying a new cafetiere at some shops though.

1.0 out of 5 stars A 50g container is about the size of a trial size, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product itself seems fine, but size is way too small for the price - 50g is a trial size size!

So, not worth the money at all. Big mistake that I missed the fineprint of the size... (Assumed it would be a normal, talc sized bottle.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap paper towels, cheap quality, better deals/quality elsewhere!, 27 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These paper towels are fairly inexpensive through Amazon; however, they are very poor quality. One can easily purchase comparably priced paper towels/kitchen paper elsewhere for the same money.

I managed to get a 3 pack of high quality paper towels at our local £1 shop - far better deal & better quality.

I will not be purchasing these paper towels/kitchen paper again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great absorbency, no leakage from sides, good price!, 13 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although a bit pricier than other diapers we currently use (Boots own brand Size 1), these Pampers were great as diapers go. Given the size of our little one, this size will fit for a good while yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality scratch mitts that stay on!, 12 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our son would fling other scratch mitts across the room...(we had gotten them from John Lewis and although nice in appearance the wrist area was too wide on those). These mitts stay on no matter what and the quality is excellent.

Well worth the £1.10 per pair!

I only wish I'd gotten these as the first scratch mitt purchase I made.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't really do it for me, 9 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this book after seeing it in The Guardian. I thought it may be nice to read something amusing related to pregnancy whilst my pregnancy ticks along to my soon arriving due date. I can count on one hand the number of times I truly laughed. The book wasn't spectaculaly written & the style seemed like it was trying to be rebellious yet sincere - an odd combination in a book about the experiences (emotional and otherwise) of pregnancy.

The use of initials for people's names made the account seem highly impersonal - I understand in this day & age maintaining privacy, but in a personally related book it made it seem as if the author was so unattached to her partner, her 1st child and then her 2nd as a result.

It was easy to read and I buzzed through it in a couple of evenings, but I wouldn't recommend anyone else buying it.
