Why find a decent toaster is such an ordeal I don't know. Our toaster packed up so bought one of these as I class Breville as a good make. One of their cheapest toasters and looks a nice quality but the most infuriating thing about this toaster is the fact it doesn't fit a normal slice of bread into it. Doing so leaves about an inch-inch and a half stood proud of the toaster. You can't turn it sideways either. It's a massive irritation as I see no need why this is the case. Being cynical I suspect Breville want you to fork out for the much more expensive toaster with the Warburtons brand stamped all over it.

Toasting performance is good although your four slices have to use the same control so you can't toast two slices at a different setting.

Well naffed off with Breville. All I want is a toaster that fits normal sliced bread, toasts consistently across the bread, toasts the same amount without changing the setting and actually works. Is it so difficult in this day and age to get one? Apparently so.

Thumbs down Breville, you were lucky to get 2 stars.


Oral-B Pro Vitality Plus Cross Action Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush
Oral-B Pro Vitality Plus Cross Action Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush

4.0 out of 5 stars The 2 minute timer facility is really good as it encourages efficient brushing, 7 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This toothbrush arrived with enough charge to keep me brushing twice a day for almost a week, which I was very impressed with.

The Oral - B Vitality Plus was more powerful than other similar models I have used in recent years and its 2D action brush head gets everywhere, leaving your teeth feeling really clean and polished.

The 2 minute timer facility is really good as it encourages efficient brushing. Also, the brush action means there is no need for added pressure, the brush does it all and gums stay healthy.

The toothbrush sits nicely on it's stand and charges in about 16 hours and is light to hold.

One thing to note is that the charger lead has a 2 pin plug, which is clearly shown on the box picture. If you don't have a 2-pin bathroom socket like you find in hotels you will have to spend a small amount on an adapter.

This is a really fine toothbrush with nice action around the teeth, working into every gap, even creating a flossing action. Certainly a model I would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice product and nice brush, 6 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nice product and nice brush, nicely packaged!

I am a pale skinned, strawberryish blonde and the colour selection suits my complexion nicely.

The colours lasted for me all day at work and just an over-application of the darker shade for a night out worked very nicely, meaning I could go straight from work to a night out with a quick makeup fix en route!

The brush is really good quality and seems to be lasting very well with no noticeable shed.

I like the tin which means it transports well in my overnight bag without fear of the shadows being crushed if I overpack (a regular occurrence for me!).

However, by far my favourite thing about this makeup is that they are against animal testing and I am finding it harder these days to find alternatives to the company I used to use which sold out big time!

From their website:

"Pur Minerals cosmetics and skincare products are completely free of animal testing (and most are made here in the USA). Eco-conscious users will be happy to know that Pur is an eco-friendly brand committed to minimizing waste and using responsibly sourced ingredients. Our correcting makeup and skincare products offer real results for real women at a great value."

I can't really fault the product.. the only reason they are getting 4 stars from me is the price is a little on the steep side for me (currently at £24).

Concerned about buying a non-OEM version but needn't have been. Sold by a UK-based seller, came next day, fit my EOS 450d perfectly, even better than the Canon one.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item received free outside of the Vine program.

In a few words it's a great idea. Received the item already in it's pouch format, just unzip, unfold and it becomes a lightweight backpack. Sort of thing you should store in your car as it'll pack away neatly. It's also easy to fold back up so it doesn't become a popup tent type situation.

The backpack has a front zipped pocket, two stretchy/net type side pockets and the storage pouch becomes an inner pocket, ideal for wallets and keys. The shoulder straps are lightly cushioned and adjustable. This'll be particularly useful for light strolls, dog walks, outings with the kids and the beach. Anything heavy should be avoided as it has no structure.

Good price and useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant toy and cheap to, 30 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The item is in the shape of an apple and has a squeaker in it. It's approximately 10cm in diameter so may not be as suitable for smaller dogs but ideal for medium->large. The packaging states it is anti-microbial, tough, floats, has a fruit scent (not convinced on that) and can be used as a dental toy. Normally my dog removes squeakers within a few minutes but 30minutes on and it's still going, much to the annoyance of my neighbours.

I was sceptical but he loves it and now I can't get it off him so will have to bargain my position with him. A brilliant toy and cheap to.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
PIllow arrives in a zipped bag and comes with a 3 year guarantee as well as being endorsed by the Orthopedic Advisory Board. The firmness rating is 7/10 which is classified as super firm.

The cover is 100% polyester and is washable but the actual pillow is wipe clean only.

I've slept on it the past few nights and it is a really good pillow, comfortable nights sleep, right thickness and doesn't need "fluffing up". I'm very impressed with it. It is very pricey (hence the loss of a star) and probably would appeal more to people who have difficulties sleeping at night. However, balance the potential longevity of this compared to standard pillows which always lose their shape then it may be deemed a valuable purchased.


Granna Super Farmer Board Game
Granna Super Farmer Board Game

Price: £13.35

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely packaged and a good price, 21 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The box contains a set of instructions, two dice and several cards containing the animals. Nicely packaged and a good price.

The game revolves around having a farm where you start off with a rabbit. To complete the game you must have at least one rabbit, sheep, pig, cow and a horse. The way to get them is by rolling the dice to get your rabbits, sheep, pigs and cows but exchanging to get the horse. If you roll a wolf or a fox it can set you back by destroying most of your animals.

The instructions aren't fantastic and it took me about 15 minutes to get into the swing of things, maybe more examples or a better explanation all round would be welcome. Although once into it, it is a fun game and can get quite competitive.

Good fun.

Relatively expensive but they are one of the few brands who do a 35" waist and decent inseams. I'm 6'5" so am impressed as these fit and don't feel heavy.


Second Nature Adult Turkey & Rice
Second Nature Adult Turkey & Rice

3.0 out of 5 stars Nicely packaged and a good average kibble size, 7 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nicely packaged and a good average kibble size. The dog likes the taste and is usually begging for more.

Why 3 stars? Price-wise it is coming in at Arden Grange territory but I am curious about the ingredient list. Pet food ingredients I an interesting science and what concerns me about this food is it does not clarify what "turkey meat meal" is which is secondary ingredient to rice. It later states minimum level of turkey is 26% and rice is 26% but it could be the "poorer bits of turkey". In other words, if it was turkey meat then it would say this. Premium pet food manufacturers are much more clear in the composition such as Canagen and Burns.

On the plus side it does have snippets of supplements and oils in it which help adult dogs.
