5.0 out of 5 stars May the colouring force be with you, 4 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you're new to the concept of these art therapy books they are essentially colouring in books for adults. However don't be fooled by any presumptuous thoughts you have when it comes to colouring books as the images you'll find are especially elegant and inspiring in themselves before you've even got to the colouring part.

What die hard fans may want to know is who actually features in this book? Fans of 'The Force Awakens' are to be disappointed as all images relate to the preceding sixth films. The images are very much based on the likeness of the characters from the movies, rather than a cartoony interpretation.

I personally felt the book was quite dominated by images of Yoda, Leia, Luke, Han Solo, Anakin (Hayden Christensen) and Padme/Queen Amidala. Sure you'll find the odd image of other characters (even Jar Jar appears) but at first impressions the aforementioned characters seemed to dominate.

This new craze transcends well to Star Wars and would be a perfect gift for the Star Wars fan in your life or as a treat for yourself if Star Wars makes you happy.

I hope the attached images give some better insight into the style of the book. There is certainly space for more Star Wars art therapy. Volume 2 coming soon no doubt?


The Lion Guard: Bunga the Wise (World of Reading: Level 1)
The Lion Guard: Bunga the Wise (World of Reading: Level 1)
by Disney Book Group
Edition: Paperback
Price: £2.73

5.0 out of 5 stars Hevi kabisa!, 28 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My two and a half year old niece is absolutely in love with the Lion Guard and there are not too many products available yet ahead of its Disney Channel premier so I was excited to find a few books were already available.

It's a very paper thin book and as indicated by the 'World of Reading' affiliation is a perfect simple reading book for any child just beginning to read. If you're unfamiliar with how the levels work, they begin with 'Pre-1' which is aimed at pre school age for a 'reader in training'. Level 1 is identified as simple text and word repetition, ideal for a school starter really. There are no more than two sentences per page.

My niece is obviously not quite there yet but loves listening to the story and looking at the beautiful illustrations through out. The story is adapted from an episode from the TV show so it is not an original story. There are some animal facts thrown in on the back page, which I thought were cute and the Swahili phrases the characters use in the TV show are translated into english as a little 'buzz' fact on some of the pages.

My only word of caution is the overtly thin nature of the book. We like to really look after our books but this one proves quite the challenge as I anticipate it could get easily trampled on or torn.

All in all, a lovely short and affordable book. A perfect treat for somebody starting out reading by themselves or for any child who adores the Lion Guard.

2.0 out of 5 stars A black sheep amongst the other fabulous Silentnight products?, 28 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Unfortunately have to side with the other reviews and confirm these pillows aren't really that great.

I was deeply shocked because another set of pillows I have at home are by Silentnight and I love them!

I'm not impartial to a thin pillow but these are something else. I felt like my head shrank in between them until there was barely any support. I am not confident they will last very long. A guest pillow at best. Frequent use won't cut it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for any sufferer of arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome in the hands, 23 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got these for my mum who has ongoing issues with arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. She has found them brilliant and finds them a lot more effective and comfortable than the ones the NHS had given to her after an operation last summer. Just to rectify you only get one, not two, but you can fit it on either wrist with ease.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the small home or office, 23 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very small and light vacuum compared to others on the market but still does the job just great. It's very simple to empty and doesn't need vacuum bags. I would recommend it for a smaller home or office that doesn't have the luxury of massive storage space for these kinds of household items. My only criticism is that the main bar of the vacuum does not extend or shorten, so if you have back issues at all, where you need to adjust the handle bar this is not the vacuum for you. The brush is detachable though to get to those harder to reach areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gym perfect, 23 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very impressed and pleased with quality for the price. The same kind of workout gear in a prestigious brand such as Nike would be three times the price just to have a little tick on it. Really great shirt for work outs, especially if you throw a lot of your workout clothes from extensive wear like me. Tight fitting but comfortable to workout in.

4.0 out of 5 stars A winner for any organised writer, 29 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really great idea for any females in your life who are prone to being super organised and are known to make lists. There are four different types of notes here, which can be easily torn away if it is a list that needs to be pinned somewhere or taken out (shopping list perhaps?). I feel like this is an inoffensive gift if you're looking for a work colleague or secret santa. So long as you know they like to write things down it is always going to be useful even if someone else happens to purchase the same. I wouldn't really place an age limit here. It's a very feminine design, yet quite simple and elegant; a potential gift for any age really.

5.0 out of 5 stars The force awakens, 20 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really great quality lamp for the Star Wars fan in your life. While one might think it is a lamp designed for children, I thought it would go down just as well with an adult Star Wars fan. Some things to bear in mind is that it is a very small lamp, minuscule in a lot of ways (it's about 24cm high). However, I thought this made it a very cute gift idea and ideal as a little book light or indeed for child's room.

The LED light is brighter and more powerful than you might expect, just as good as a regular bulb. The LED lights tend to act as a far safer and secure light to have around children as they do not get particularly hot. The curious child would stay out of harms way if their curiosity gets the better of them and they want to touch the light.

I've had other LED lamps from Phillips that you need to assemble yourself, but this one comes all ready to go. It is battery powered though and these are NOT provided. It needs 3 AA batteries.

Lovely item really! A great 'Secret Santa' idea if you're buying for a Star Wars fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute but a hefty price tag, 20 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
In theory it's a really fabulous idea to get your dog (or A dog) involved in Christmas but I couldn't help but think the price tag is a little steep when you could near enough get a hamper of regular dog treats for a similar price. It is designed intentionally so a dog can actually open the cracker themselves. A neat idea but I'm not sure the pet I'm giving it to would quite grasp that concept. I'd say this product is far better suited to quite a pampered dog, where perhaps the owner insists on the very best of everything for their pet. For my family, the dog would be just as happy with a packet of treats you can pick up from the supermarket.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality at a budget., 16 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've tried a few different 'L'oreal for men' products now and this moisturiser is a great compliment to any of the face washes.

Before I tried this moisturiser out I was an avid user of 'Nivea for Men' products so price wise they are very similarly. This moisturiser does differ greatly to the Nivea range. At first inspection is rather more watery in consistency. If you've ever used one of those after shave balms you get in an cologne gift set it is very much like that. Not necessarily a good or bad thing, more of just an observation. Nonetheless, the cream is absorbed into the skin fairly quickly, perhaps not as instantly as the Nivea range though.

Also, as with other products in this same range there is quite a pungent odour to the moisturiser. It is not an offensive smell but would come down to preference. The nivea products tend to be fairly odourless in comparison.

Hydration wise, as a user who gets quite dry skin, I've found it a little better than Nivea. Particularly, now it's winter I'm finding this product has kept my skin looking and feeling more hydrated for longer periods of time.

As with any new product you need to give it a few weeks to see if it suits you. I can't say it's inexplicably left my skin looking any better or worse than it was when using my usual Nivea moisturiser but I would have no qualms using it again. Very good for dry skin but beware of the odour if you don't like things with a scent to them.
