Scentsicles Scented Ornaments - White Winter Fir
Scentsicles Scented Ornaments - White Winter Fir
Offered by Christmas Tree Land
Price: £4.35

4.0 out of 5 stars Authentic smell, 8 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great authentic pine smell. Strong but not overwhelming. We put two into our reasonable sized tree and it was noticeable. Wearing off a week on now but will add some more. Only issue would be the price as feels a little high but decent product. Nice touch for artificial trees.

This is great and perfect for scrambling eggs and cooking mince. Sturdy and comfortable to use.

Agree with another reviewer that it arrives with a few rough edges. A little bit of sand paper rectified that in moments and now it's perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a real throwback to the high octane action movies of the 80s and 90s. It is refreshing to watch a simple and exciting action movie as so many these days are overcomplicated or riddled with CGI. Also rare to see a comic book movie made for adults, as the action and violence is extreme.

The blu ray quality is excellent but does get grainy in dark shots. For the price I paid (£7) I was very pleased. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality and effective, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We found this easy to use and were very pleased with the quality of the prints. They come out like police fingerprints. Clear and black. Look great on the white paper and when framed. A classic look.

The dry wipe did the job well and we were able to use all four sheets of paper with just one wipe. TOP TIP: use two people when doing this. One applies the wipe and never touches the paper. The other person puts the baby's hand/foot on the paper. We had no smudges using this technique

I'll be buying more

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, does what you need, 25 Feb. 2013

Good quality construction and clever base allows you to use it in a few pan sizes. The handles have a special design so stay cool even when everything is boiling. Glass lid is high quality too. Does all you'd want from a steamer and good value!


The Affair: (Jack Reacher 16)
The Affair: (Jack Reacher 16)
by Lee Child
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Getting stale but still a guilty pleasure, 4 Sept. 2012
I have read every Reacher book and have to admit the bar is dropping. The last two were billed as 'sequels' but barely followed on from one another. This feels like the author sold out, as with the upcoming movie. I also agree with the other reviews that Lee Child needs to step back and take the time to create a truly great Reacher novel. It's been quite a few books since I could say one was well written and plotted. The Affair is as bog standard as Reacher novels get. The story is padded out and reaches an unsatisfactory and predictable conclusion. The love angle is the same as you've seen before and the explicit details in the lovemaking scenes are embarrassing to read. Also, Child's prose is poor and he repeats the same lines and phrases often. I lost count of the number of times 'I said nothing' was included during Reacher's conversations. It makes him sound like a mute! Poor.

Anyway, for easy reading and a familiar character then you can't go wrong. A book to engage in as a guilty pleasure but the series needs an injection of quality again or the readers will give up. It's starting to remind me of how the Alex Cross series by James Patterson started brilliantly then petered out after a book a year diluted the quality steadily but surely.
