5.0 out of 5 stars Holy sh*tballs this is stellar., 28 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
JFC this is a stunning album. Check me out, actually bothering to leave a review! That's how good it is!

It's an excellent combination of modern techniques and arrangements with undercurrents of James' own personal spin on melody and lyricism, so that the entire album feels both new and yet still unmistakeably James. Personal favourires are Dear John, Attention, Feet of Clay and, er, pretty much the entire rest of the album.

Yeah. Five stars, can't wait to put it in the car and drive around to it :D

Gets a little bit touchy about even the slightest unevenness in the floor, but scales require completely flat surfaces anyway. Easy to use, extremely legible for us tall people way up in the clouds, and haven't had any problems with it at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lonely Planet seem to be writing via Google Maps these days., 24 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Other reviews have covered my problems with this book:

* Outdated information

* Dangerous suggestions

* Underestimated hiking times

* Very few short hikes for day-hikers

There is very little in here you can't work out just by using Google Maps at home, and with the horrendous inaccuracies in the book I can't help but feel this is what the writers have done. I realise that updating a book that would take a whole year to actually hike might take a whole year, but off you go; do the hikes. That's what we're paying the purchase price for: your expertise.

The idea is that you do these things then tell us about them so that the information is accurate. That's why guidebooks are supposed to be written by experts. Instead Lonely Planet are putting out more and more books which are just not-very-updated versions of rehashes of inaccurate, outdated, and downright incorrect books from well over ten years ago. Obviously it's cheaper that way, but really it's just a swindle, isn't it folks?

Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi (Crafts)
Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi (Crafts)
by Tomoko Takamori
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Small amount of cute patterns, the rest are somewhat ugly., 24 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's a reason the cover is basically the same bear in five different colours; the majority of patterns in this book lead to surprisingly こわいい output. You wouldn't want to terrify young children with the horrors you create, would you? No, you wouldn't.

The teddy is cute. But man alive try some of the other things in here and you'll wonder whether you could've done better making your own patterns from scratch.


LORD & BERRY Skin Lip Gloss, Ampere 18 ml
LORD & BERRY Skin Lip Gloss, Ampere 18 ml
Price: £10.50

1.0 out of 5 stars Colour not as per photograph, colour so sheer as to be worthless., 24 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ampere as per the product photo is a bright blue-toned pink. The tube which arrived in the box labeled "Ampere" is a muted salmon pink.

The gloss is so sheer that no colour at all is present either swatched on the back of the hand or applied to the lips.

There is a peculiar chemical scent to it, and an unpleasant taste.

All in all, product is not worth the £3.50ish it cost as an add-on item, let alone the full RRP of £10.

A shame, as I have another Lord & Berry Skin Lipgloss and it's superb.

Genuine product, delivered promptly, and safely packaged. What more could you want? :)

Do check reviews online (Temptalia, etc) to see if it's the shade for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect condition, speedy delivery., 3 Mar. 2014

This is a great little reference book for the progression of popular costume designs through the Medieval period right through to the 1960's. It will not outline every single costume ever made in a given era, obviously, but for a quick reference of whether or not you are in the right area for the time period you are recreating it's spot-on.

Moisturising, astounding opaque colour, and fantastic price. Obviously as a gloss it doesn't last forever, but for £3.67 as an add-on item it's extremely good value!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great item for a great price., 3 Mar. 2014

I needed a cheap and cheerful little compact for my handbag, and this fits the job perfectly! It even looks fairly robust, although I wouldn't want to let it rattle about - it lives in a compartment to keep other things from pushing it open and getting trapped inside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic quality, prompt delivery., 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Never tried Mineral Hygienics before, but the quality is superb. The colour looks a little pasty on my skin-tone, but will make a superb highlight as it can be applied sheer for a gorgeous frosty finish.

The colour itself is like a very washed-out parma violet, with a lovely sheen and no fallout.

Would certainly try this brand again!
