5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps water cool for hours, 24 Jun. 2016
This LifeSky large water bottle is great. It holds nearly a litre and its double wall construction means that it keeps the contents cool for long periods. My first test of it was to put some chilled water in it one evening and drink the water the following morning - still chilled and very refreshing!

The bottle is unpainted metal, which I prefer - I've had similar flasks before where the paint finish quickly gets scratched and bashed. This flask will get scratched and bashed I'm sure, but it will weather much better in its 'raw' metal state.

It has a wide mouth which is great if you want to add ice to the bottle and it's comfortable to drink from.

The screw cap is always attached to the bottle and the loop also makes it easy to carry, hanging from you hand etc. The screw cap has a rubber grip which makes tightening and unscrewing easy. It is watertight so can be put in a bag and carried without issue.

The bottle has come in handy for camping and outdoor sport when previously water would become tepid after being outdoors for a while.


Post-it Recycled Notes - Canary Yellow - Tower Pack Of 24 Pads - 38 mm x 51 mm
Post-it Recycled Notes - Canary Yellow - Tower Pack Of 24 Pads - 38 mm x 51 mm
Offered by Evans Office Supplies
Price: £7.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Dinky and useful!, 21 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are little tiny post-its measuring 38mm by 51mm. Each box comes with 24 pads in the classic canary yellow colour. The little size makes them useful for marking places in documents, marking the edge of pages in books and adding little notes to small pages. I use these a lot and they are just so useful for many uses!

This pack is also made of 100% recycled materials, including the box that the 24 pads come in.

It's easy to take this brand for granted, they are the original and long standing sticky note. The Post-it Note 3M brand adhesive is reliable, much more so than other brands and I would recommend these little post-its.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super sticky and super useful, 18 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The super sticky version of Post It notes mean that these can stick to many different surfaces without falling off. I've used these for sticking to a painted brick wall, normal post its would struggle, and they work brilliantly.

This specific version is handy with the lines and at roughly A6 size they are very practical and useful. The colour is nice, a pale blue that gives enough colour without being too dark to read writing on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funky dinky little notes!, 16 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are little tiny post-its measuring 38mm by 51mm. Each box comes with 24 pads and 4 of each of 6 colours - mid green, pale green, yellow, orange, mid blue and pale blue.

I use these a lot and they are just so useful for many uses!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright and sticky!, 16 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's easy to take Post-it notes for granted, they've been around forever and now there are hundreds of different options and many copy-cat versions.

This pack of notes is a pack of genuine Post-it Notes. The listing says there are 12 pads of 76 mm x 76 mm with 100 notes in each pad (I just got a sample of one). The size is a classic square post-it note size. The pad is a mutlicoloured set of mainly pink with a portion of white ("strawberry rainbow") - very bright!

The sticky part is the reliable quality that you can expect from the original and genuine Post-It Note by 3M.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top of the range, 15 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Wow, what an amazing toothbrush! This Genius 9000 model really has it all. Just when I thought Oral-B couldn't really add any other features!

There are so many features, and the product description above gives full information - so I'll highlight the things that I really like and that make this toothbrush unbeatable...

It has several different modes: daily clean, gum care, sensitive, whitening, tongue cleaning, and pro-clean. I really like the pro-clean mode which really gives a strong clean with a faster movement. Even though it is a stronger clean there are no unpleasant vibrations, the movement is really effective.

The app has some really fancy 'enhanced' features including self-tracking, personal statistics, game mode, and encouragement to maintain good techniques. I must admit that I'm not that bothered to use the app every day but it is really useful because it teaches you how to brush properly and not miss any bits of your mouth. I tend to use it every few days.

The Smart Travel Case is really cool, who knew I needed such a thing! It makes travel with the toothbrush easy because you can charge your brush and smartphone at the same time! The inner cover includes a place to hold your phone too.

I've noticed that the toothbrush is lighter than an 8000 model that's a couple of years old, so this newer version is a little more comfortable to hold.

I've always liked this range of toothbrushes and this new version is pretty impressive - if you can justify the price tag of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliberate practice, 15 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
"Peak" is an excellent book that brings together research-based evidence about how we reach a state of expertise through deliberate practice. There are other books out there already on the same topic, Bounce: The Myth of Talent and the Power of Practice is very similar, and in fact quotes research by Anders Ericsson. However, this book is excellent and is well worth a read even if you have already read similar books. If you are new to the topic then this is probably the book to start with.

I'm inspired to continue putting in some deliberate practice to the things I'm learning at the moment, this book makes me confident that I will achieve!


Aretha 141101-R Genuine Cowhide Leather Women Cross Body Shoulder Handbag Red
Aretha 141101-R Genuine Cowhide Leather Women Cross Body Shoulder Handbag Red
Offered by aretha UK
Price: £109.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely bag with useful features, 13 Jun. 2016
Disclosure: I received this bag at a large discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

This Aretha bag is a lovely bag with many useful features. It is fully lined with interior organisation and pockets, and useful exterior pockets. The Zips are all finished with large leather toggles so they are easy to grip and handle.

I found the bag is really good at organising my bits and pieces so I can find what I'm looking for quickly and easily.

I put in:
A large purse (I.e. The size where notes don't have to be folded)
Kindle e-reader
Notebook and pen
Mobile phone (handy in front pocket)
Sunglasses
A few other bits and pieces.
There would be room for other items

I really like the rose red colour and the bag can be carried as a shoulder bag or across the body.

SureFlap SureFeed Sealed Pet Bowl, White
SureFlap SureFeed Sealed Pet Bowl, White
Offered by SureFlap
Price: £49.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Gold standard, 12 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The SureFlap SureFeed pet bowl is a high quality top-of-the-range item. For the cat who must have everything! If you can afford the price tag, then this is a useful item because it keeps food free of flies, keeps it fresh and stops wet food drying out. Our cats took a little time to get used to it, they were a little unnerved initially as the lid opened and closed, but after some time they were accustomed to it and happy to use it. The lid is quiet and smooth in operation.

It requires 4 type-C batteries, which was a minor inconvenience - we have lots of AA and AAA batteries on-hand, but no type-C and there are none included with the device.

Spare bowls can be purchased which is a good idea, the bowl that comes with it is a single bowl but you can also buy split bowls - ideal if you feed your cat wet and dry food like we do.

It's certainly not an essential item but great if you have the disposable income to buy this gold standard food bowl!

HoMedics WDB-300 Water Resistant Wet and Dry Face/Body Brush with Four Attachments
Offered by Stay Glam
Price: £16.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Wet and dry, 11 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This HoMedics brush is a really practical all-in-one body brush with a number of different heads. The main ones that we have found really good are the body brush head and the facial brush head. The great thing is that it can be used in the shower or bath.

The quality of the device seems good and the battery power means it's easy to use and batteries can be easily changed.
