CreepyParty Novelty Halloween Costume Party Latex Dog Head Mask (Shiba Dog)
CreepyParty Novelty Halloween Costume Party Latex Dog Head Mask (Shiba Dog)
Offered by CreepyParty
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars So Impress, 20 April 2016
There not much to say about this mask other than it's great fun. My son has been maurading around scaring friends and family. It seems to fit most adults and it's possible to see through the noseholes so you don't walk into walls too often. Of course this particular model is based on the Doge meme (Shibe) and is very popular with the teenagers so I'm told. The only downside was a fairly strong smell when it first arrived but this soon dissipated leaving an excellent and fun product. (I recieved this product in exchange for a fair review)

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact yet Bright., 20 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ridiculously small but incredibly bright. I use it for light painting photography and have found the extra reach and ability to focus the light beam an excellent bonus. It's in my camera bag all the time and if you are looking for a compact bright light source here it is.


SAMYANG 14 mm f / 2.8 IF ED UMC Wide-angle Lens - for Canon
SAMYANG 14 mm f / 2.8 IF ED UMC Wide-angle Lens - for Canon
Price: £251.87

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent especially for nightscapes., 20 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like many other reviewers here I was somewhat doubtful of this lens given it's excellent price, I needn't have worried. Samyang have produced an excellent, sharp and well built lens and at this price I would suggest it's a must buy for astrophotography or landscapes. I have used the lens on a Canon 6d and 7d and have been very happy with image quality. Sure there is vignetting but no more than my Canon 17-40 and the Samyang is sharper wide open than that lens. Of course, it's main use is as a massive light gatherer when used in darkness for nightscapes. At F2.8 and with the focus set to infinity the results are excellent (see attached image).
Of course it's fully manual but for most landscapers thats no big deal. I use manual focus and exposure all the time and so should you if you want make the most of your images. This lens pushes you to think which for me helps with creativity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value and Accurate Tuner., 20 April 2016
There are plenty of clip on tuners available but if you are looking for an efficient, good value and accurate tuner here it is. The Musedo T-5S is compact, light and well built. Simply insert the supplied battery and start tuning. There are modes available for Chromatic, Guitar, Bass, Violin and Ukelele and it's also possible to adjust the frequency (from 430 - 450 Hz) if you ever want to step away from standard orchestral tuning.
The most important things with tuners like this is accuracy and clarity of the dispaly. This tuner is excellent on both fronts. I compared accuracy with both the built in tuner on my Faith acoustic and the tuner on a Yamaha THR amp and it matched each time. The display is bright and clearly marked (despite the compact size) and the colour changes from orange to green when correct tuning is achieved.


Kovira Professional 6" Glass Nail File Set with Case- 5 Premium Luxury Crystal Files for a Long Lasting Manicure
Kovira Professional 6" Glass Nail File Set with Case- 5 Premium Luxury Crystal Files for a Long Lasting Manicure

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 4 April 2016
Will not go back to using other types of nail files after using these glass files. It took me a little bit of getting used to, but after that I found them far more effective than the metal files I used to use. They get a lovely shape and avoid creating rough edges to my nails that my metal files sometimes cause.

Lovely colours of files presented really well in a handy case - so when one eventually becomes blunt, you can just move on to the next one in the set.

AVA ® Sunglasses - New Season Collection Cateye Style Ladies Sunglasses (Womens Sunglasses - Limited Edition)
Offered by Oracle Retail
Price: £49.95

5.0 out of 5 stars The best ones I've ever used, 4 April 2016
These sunglasses are the best ones I've ever used!

They're a perfect fit and don't slip down or move, and they're really lightweight so you hardly feel like you're wearing them. They have a slight tint to them that's not too strong so you can still see really clearly through them.

I use them when I'm driving and really like them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and atmospheric, 1 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killing Fields (Audio CD)
Taking a break from the Europop of Discovery, Mike Oldfield applied his prodigious talents to the score for the Killing Fields. The result is an outstanding mix of orchestrated and synthesised music. Highlights include the magnificent Pran's theme, a heart wrenching melody which reappears throughout. Requiem For A City where Oldfield follows in Mozarts footsteps and the groundbreaking and still shocking Evacuation. It's hard to believe that the genius at work here was the same man who had released the fairly bland Discovery album just before.
For the price this is a must buy the only disapointment is the lack of any new material but the album still sounds wonderful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eighties pop with only occassional glimpses of the real Mike., 1 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Discovery (Audio CD)
I'm a big fan of Oldfield's work but it's fair to say the eighties were not his best period (with some exceptions). Discovery is packed full of europop, catchy songs, most have great guitar solos but most also have terrible words and vocals. The saving grace on Discovery is The Lake a 12 minute instrumental piece which foreshadows Amarok and shows the creative genius let loose.
Other than that this deluxe edition is a definite let down. The much vaunted 1984 Suite is essentially a selection of titles available elsewhere with only slight remixes. The exeption being Zombies which is an embarrisingly childish reworking of the already weak Poison Arrows.
If you like To France (the hit from this album) you will enjoy this music but for Oldfield fans yearning for more long form instrumental pieces this doesn't really satisfy and the lack of any really new content is dissappointing.


Symphonized MTRX Premium Genuine Wood In-ear Noise-isolating Headphones with Mic and Nylon Cable (Black)
Symphonized MTRX Premium Genuine Wood In-ear Noise-isolating Headphones with Mic and Nylon Cable (Black)

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding value, 22 Sept. 2015
I'm a huge fan of Symphonized earphones and have several pairs which are my first choice for quality audio. I was delighted therefore to receive a pair of the MTRX in exchange for an honest review, well here it is, they're bloody good.

These headphones have all the usual hallmarks of Symphonized. Wooden casing, proper braided cord, bag to keep them in, selection of earpieces etc. but it's the sound that sets them apart.

My daughter recently got a pair of significantly more expensive headphones but there is little or no difference in sound. These earphones have rich, but not obtrusive bass, clean and bright but not harsh treble and sound separation that makes you feel like the artist is in the room with you. The close fitting earpieces also deliver excellent sound isolation. Once again I can recommend these without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, 4 Sept. 2015
(Review by my wife!) When I first saw the colour of the 'Solar Shield', it looked a little dark for me - but a little goes a long way as it's easy to blend out so that it can match your skintone (unless you are particularly pale, I would say). It's moisturising, absorbs quickly, and gives your skin a dewy, natural glow - perfect for a 'no make-up makeup' look. The consistency and coverage reminds me of a BB/CC cream, but with the added bonus of SPF 30 and protection from both UVA and UVB rays. I feel confident that my skin is protected from the sun when I use this, and the finish it gives you is an added bonus - so many facial sunscreens are disastrous to use with makeup, but this can provide a good base as well as be worn alone. Sun damage can age your skin more than anything else, so it's important to try and use sunscreen daily - especially on your face and neck. This product means I can help fight ageing, but also have some nice coverage and the ability to apply my makeup on top if I want.
