Second Nature Adult Turkey and Rice Hypoallergenic Complete Dry Dog Food, 12 kg
Second Nature Adult Turkey and Rice Hypoallergenic Complete Dry Dog Food, 12 kg
Price: £34.49

5.0 out of 5 stars top ingredients that our westie appears to enjoy, 23 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As owners of the fussiest westie ever born,we've tried just about every kibble available.Our dog will only eat most if we mix meat or cheese with it.Instead of the kibble being the complete meal,it becomes a mixer.First meal with this,our dog sniffed it,walked away and wouldn't eat it without us adding meat.However by the end of the second day,he was eating it without anything added.The food is suitable for all breeds, everything a dog needs for a healthy life.Made only with Turkey and no other protein, for gentler digestion.Seaweed oil for a healthy brain, vision and nervous system
Contains no added wheat, wheat gluten, dairy, pork, beef or soya. No artificial colours or flavourings.Omega 6 & 3 fatty acids and zinc to promote a healthy skin and coat.The ingredients appear to be top notch and i think the price,including delivery is excellent value.As another reviewer has stated,please be aware of the size of this bag,it really is half-a-sack and should be stored,after opening,in a cool place away from sunlight.I can highly recommend this food.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tender is the story of the intense relationship between James, a promising photographer, and Catherine, a young writer in Dublin, 19 May 2015
This review is from: Tender (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The writing style is really rather unusual and I don't think it will appeal to everybody. To me, it was overly descriptive and some phrasing was incredibly over-thought. There were times when things were described two or three times, simply because another adjective exists, when one would have sufficed. I did wonder whether this was supposed to reflect the confused thoughts of Catherine, but I found it frustrating to read. The writing at the beginning of the book was particularly laboured but if you can get past this, the story is not at all bad. It explores the themes of family, friendship, love, sexuality and the process of finding oneself in an honest way. This would be best for somebody looking for a slow read, rather than a page-turner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could and should have been an exceptional kit., 17 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The clippers feel and look a quality piece of kit and a genuine wow when you open the plastic case.It goes downhill from thereon.The large corded clippers require you to push on the metal clipping blade when it must be a five second job in the factory.Then when you come to use the clipper,you find there are no plastic guides supplied to vary the depth of cut.At this price point,they're having a laugh.Unless you want to scalp your dog,or buy the guides,these clippers are useless.The battery operated trimmer is of more use as the lack of a cord makes it more portable and easy to use.Unlike the large clipper,these are supplied with the guides.Unfortunately,because the trimmer is relatively small,you couldn't use it to trim all of your dog as it would take a long time and no doubt,your dog would become bored and restless.This could've been an exceptional kit but has been let down by the manufacturer skimping on a few plastic guides.Disappointing,unfortunately.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wahl are easy to recommend., 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After Xmas,we took advantage of a lightening deal on Amazon and purchased some Wahl Pet Clippers that were for sale approx half the cost of these so this was a good opportunity to test both clippers against each other.In truth,both are functional but visually unattractive.Both do the job they were intended for and there wasn't any noticeable difference in use or with the finished trim on our dog.Both were reasonably quiet and our dog hated the vibration of both.In summary,we can recommend Wahl but the lower priced clippers performed just as well as the higher cost.Both appear robust and should offer plenty of use and will pay for themselves within a very short period of time.amazon delivery was of the usual high standard.


HP BLUETOOTH MONO HEADSET H320
HP BLUETOOTH MONO HEADSET H320
Price: £25.94

5.0 out of 5 stars good features,fair price, 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have an iPhone 6+, which, let's face it, is too big to hold to your ear for the duration of a call, be it 5 mins or 1 hour. But I was looking for a bluetooth headset which was light, and practical to solve this issue. The HP bluetooth headset looked like the right tool for the job.

As soon as it arrived, I charged it up and once fully charged, connected it to my iPhone using the instructions provided. Setup was very simple and I suspect that even the most inexperienced technophobe wouldn't have too much trouble setting it up.

Call quality is good, and the build quality of the actual headset is good. The bit that clips around your ear however however feels extremely cheap. It's a bit like a wishbone you'd fight over during Christmas dinner. I suspect it was designed to be thin so that it doesn't weigh much, which it doesn't. It does work well, and there's nothing wrong with it, it just feels a little bit cheaper than the rest of the unit.

One excellent feature is that the headset will say "power on" if you hold in the power button, to let you know it's powering on. Likewise, you'll hear "power off" if you've held in the power button to turn it off. A very, very neat feature which my old headset didn't have. This will save a lot of battery power, because in the past, it was hard to know if you had turned your headset off properly, and you'd go back to it to find you had to recharge it.

Overall, I could definitely recommend using this device as a daily bluetooth headset. Battery life seems good (cannot really give an estimate as it depends how much you use it), power on/off voice is a nice feature and quality is definitely there, if you excuse the part that clips onto your ear.

3.0 out of 5 stars gritty novel, 16 May 2015
This review is from: All Involved (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The book tells the stories of gang members who commit crimes.It also tells stories of firefighters,nurses,ambulance men and graffiti artists.The troubled period is in Los Angeles from April to May 1992.I found the book to be a gritty,sometimes difficult read as the writing contained some slang and i simply didn't don't know what some of the phrases meant.I'm a middle-aged male and felt the book was more suited to a younger audience.I didn't particularly like or enjoy the book but could understand how other's would have a different view.

1.0 out of 5 stars i didn't like the style or content of the storyline, 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The blurb on the back of the book states the book "immerses us in the 1930's small town America-a place brimming with irresistible charm,but riddles with dangerous secrets".From the first page,i found the book a challenge with the author fond of the word,"sesquicentennial" which is used a number of times in the first few pages.Immediately,i felt disengaged and unattached and really struggled with the book.Different chapters throughout the book are begun in the form of letters which i found irritating.The book completely failed for me from the first page to the last and wasn't for me.


TRESemme Perfectly Undone Waves Creating Foam - 150 ml
TRESemme Perfectly Undone Waves Creating Foam - 150 ml
Price: £2.70

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a short evening out., 14 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As other reviewers have said,the foam helps create the waves and curls in your hair for a really good look but the effect doesn't last the day.A good product to use for a short evening out where you're looking for the curly girl look that'll last 4-5 hours.Pleasant and easy to use at a reasonable price from a household name.Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars turned a mucky westie into a beautifully white dog., 9 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A really nice,fresh smelling,gentle cleansing shampoo which i used on our westie,who detests having a bath.This shampoo appeared to calm him down which suggests it was gentle on his skin and didn't cause him any irritation.His white coat has come up beautifully clean and i found it was gentle on my skin too.Would i purchase this shampoo?Absolutely,yes,i was very impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value,quality bags but lacking handles., 2 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really like these bags which comes in 4 rolls of 15 bags.You can pull one roll out of the bag and that roll fits into the palm of my medium sized mans hand.They're not scented with any artificial chemical odour and are all the better for that.Of a good thickness and a good size when unrolled.What's not to like?Well,the bags lack handles to tie the unpleasant contents up and i also use the handles to slip over my finger so as not to drop the bag inadvertently when walking the dog.In summary,not perfect but extremely good quality bags at a very reasonable price.Easy to recommend.
