Michael Kors Astor Silver Tone Buckle Bangle Bracelet
Michael Kors Astor Silver Tone Buckle Bangle Bracelet
Offered by Cambridge Handbags
Price: £99.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice item. disappointed in packaging, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice bangle. Decent weight. Bit disappointed in the packaging department though although it came in a nice drawstring velvet/velour pouch there was no box making it a slightly awkward gift. Not given it the full score as the fastening has a tendency to be quite weak and the bangle can come undone quite easily and has fallen off my fiancée a number of times. It is a very nice bangle though.

Philips AECS7000E/00 WeCall Bluetooth Conference Speaker

5.0 out of 5 stars Top marks for performance and ease of use in set up., 4 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impressions was this was a decent piece of kit, nice size, reassuring weight, feels nice and smooth in hand and didn't appear to have too many buttons for me to get wrong. A quick look at the instructions and I was able to sync it to my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy S4) without any issue at all. After a number of tests in a variety of different scenarios I have to say I continued to be impressed with this speaker. From a business point of view it looks much more professional than having your smartphone plonked in the middle of the table on loudspeaker and I have to say the overall quality sound wise was a noticeable improvement from my smartphone. I also noticed this item can act as a regular speaker for playing music from your phone, this is a nice add on touch but doesn't really add any value to the item as its performance isn't worth shouting about. Its a a conference speaker in its very essence that this item shines. As a point of note the speaker side of things can be a bit muddy or blurry if the unit is places on a soft surface such as a couch or chair but when on a solid wooded table or similar solid surface the sound quality is superb. Ideal for small business or anyone who uses the speaker phone on there smart phone on a regular basis for group chats or conferences/meetings. Over all impressed with the performance, ease of use and quick and user friendly set up.

2.0 out of 5 stars A nice gimmick for a kitchen party but NOT pro dj equipment by a long stretch, 31 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am reviewing this item from a dj's point of view. As a club dj I played up and down the country for over a decade using all manor of proffesional dj equipment. I am experienced enough to review this item as a piece of DJ kit. How do I start then...............erm ist loud.........Its handy/portable.............Its perfect for blending your tunes together from your iphone 5 or new(er) Ipad/mini but my main bone to pick is with arguably one of the most popular dj's in the world Mr Armin Van Burren endorsing this as a credible piece of dj kit THIS IS NOT A CREDIBLE PIECE OF DJ KIT!!! If you are reading this review after watching some youtube videos (oooops there is that popular uploadable video site) of Mr AVB telling you that this is close to what he uses in clubs then Im calling BS on that statment. This is a GIMMICK. This is for someone who wants to mix a few tunes together in a kitchen party and that is about it. If you are serious about becoming a dj your best bet is to get a dj controller ( there are PLENTY to chose from) and take it from there. This is not a step onto the first rung of the dj ladder at all. I have scored it 2 stars because the sound quality is very good and very loud and for the price (which has plummeted lately) its not a bad little toy/gimmick but make no mistake this is NOT pro dj equipment, if you turned up to any club with this you will be laughed out of the building. The dj part of this kit is far too limited to perform any significant or substantial mixes, for basic mixes then yeah this is ok, I was a little disappointed I had to buy the dj app too, given the price of this unit the app should come free of charge. For a kitchen party or for a teenager this is a good little gift but as a proffesional piece of dj kit this is way off the mark. Armin Van Burren hang you head in shame sir you are have sold out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply not worth the money, better available for cheaper, 31 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Im still scratching my head perplexed as to who indeed this software is actually aimed at. At first glance this would appear to be an all in one box solution for a small business who wants to deal with its own accounts.... correct?? Well then you look at the price and see (currently) its almost at the FIVE HUNDRED pound mark so that kinda cancels out my 1st assumption as a small business could surely get a similar level of service for a fraction of the price OR if they insisted on doing it themselves surely there is software available at a more palatable price. So then you think well maybe this software is so expensive because its all singing all dancing with more bells and whistles than nursery percussion performance............NO this is the BOTTOM of the scale!!! there are 2 other versions of this software available around the 700 and 1000 quid mark. So I return to my original question. Just who is this software aimed at?? Its not the best and its certainly not the cheapest. I have used software of a similar nature with equal or better results that are MUCH more user friendly and didn't cost me enough money to put down as a deposit on a house. In use this is mediocre at best and does not justify the price whatsoever. You can get better for cheaper elsewhere and that is just the facts of the matter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ideal stocking filler for young gamers with light use, adutls, fat heads or hardcore gamers stay away., 2 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Firstly I feel I have to point out this is NOT a Sony product, it is officially licensed for PS3 but (as I felt the packaging a little missleading) I felt I had to point this out. Ok well on with the review, basically you get what you pay for with these. If you are a serious gamer then you will not be looking at a headset around this pricemark but if like my boy you are a casual gamer who doesn't spend hour and hours wearing headphones and giving abuse to people you will never meet then these are fine. Build quality is you would expect for the price, nice gloss finish and the red color is a nice vibrant one. the cushioning on the ear pads is sufficient for a smaller head (maybe early to mid teens) but on an adult head the cushioning will be forced to its limit and makes for an uncomfortable experience after just a short time. Sound quality is pretty impressing I have to say and its a nice touch with the dual volume controls and mute button too, these controls are a good selling point for this unit. Very suprised that this headset cannot be used as headphones in a standalone capacity as they seem to require the usb to be connected to have power in them, this i found particularily unusual for headphones but then again this is sold as a gaming headset and not headphones.
All in all as I stated you get what you pay for and this would make an very good stocking filler for any young gamer but not recommended for adults, people with fat heads or anyone who intends to use these for a few hours at at a time.


Winnie The Pooh Post-N-Roll Hunny Pot
Winnie The Pooh Post-N-Roll Hunny Pot
Price: £19.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely toy. well made. good use of clours. Winner!!!!!, 29 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The main unit stands approx 10inches high and appears to be made of nice durable plastic. The colours are bright and vivid and the hunny spilling over the top of the pot is contoured and chunky for a realistic effect. Inside there is a helter skelter style slide for the ball to roll down. The balls are made up of 2 colors and again seem to be very well made and are not heavy or solid enough to be thrown and do any damage to baby or the tv.
The balls are placed one at a time into the top of the pot and swirl around and around as they make there way down the slide rotating around the inside of the pot which is clear and this is when the 2 colour balls come into there own as the colours blend together creating a nice visual effect. as the balls reach the bottom then the real excitment for baby begins..... which of the 4 doorways will the ball come out of??? The unit has a slider on the base that closes the 4 doors so it call all be stored away or transported without the balls going missing or falling out and causing and accident.
all in all this is a fantastic and very well made toy indeed and our little cherub (almost 8 months old) has been enjoying it on a daily basis. Also of note the balls all rattle too so even on there own they supply a certain amount of enjoyment.


Murad Age Reform Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture 50 ml
Murad Age Reform Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture 50 ml

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cream but it come at a price, 23 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impressions was suprised at how small a pot of moisturiser you get for the price tag. Packaging again was unerwhelming considering the cost of the product I know you dont pay for the packaging but generally this is a pretty good indictation of quality. I used the cream daily for 2 weeks on my face and neck and initially there is a slight warming sensation which instantly tells me this is a deep moisturiser and the quality meter then goes up a notch. The cream itelf is not oily and absorbed into the skin quickly leaving a slight residue almost like a mask but this disperses after a few minutes leaving my skin feeling very very soft and hydrated indeed. Long term I have to say this IS a very good cream indeed but doesn't quite justify the price in my humble opinion. Word of warning though this does feel quite uncomfortable around the eyes creating an umpleasant stinging and also like with any cream try to avoid your hair too. Bottom line this is a very good cream if you don't mind paying over the odds

5.0 out of 5 stars Transform your tablet into a very ergonomic netbook in an instant. Flawless product., 5 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well i am pleased to inform you that I am typing this review on my tablet, which until I recived this keyboard would be almost impossible to endure. As I am sure anyone reading this will understand typing on a tablet is a painful experience and one that takes longer than acutally hand writting which kinda defeats the object. I am pleasantly surprised by this little gadget as it is not a gimmick but a genuine fully legitimate addon to the tablet. As I type this now my tablet resembles a notebook as the magnetic strip holds the tablet at such an ergonomic angle to the keyboard it really is like typing on a netbook. The battery life seams VERY good too, same size charger as the tablet too (although a replacment cable is included) keys are of a suitable size to comfortably type with (Im a man with average mansized hands) the case seems very robust and one would imagine would offer a substantial amount of protection to the tablet although I would have prefered the branding of logitec to be embossed on the case rather than sticking out at the front on an excess piece of material, that aside this is a very very useful piece of equipment and really has transformed my tablet into a netbook/small laptop. The only thing you have to get used to is the lack of keypad for swiping etc but then you realise you have touch screen so don't need it. This however will definitely catch you out the first time you use it.
To sum up this product is worth its weight in gold and I would recommend it to anyone. Build quality is fantastic, love the way it clicks the tablet into place allowing for a very ergonomic experienc indeed. So here it is, the longest thing I have ever typed on a tablet in my life...... say a lot really doesn't is? Fantastic product.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have outgrown Microsoft Word for desktop publishing then is your next step. Fantastic for the price!!!, 5 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
CorelDRAW seems to have been around for donkeys years and its the kind of software that scares people because of its depth (and until now its price tag) But lets have it right this is a VERY affordable and very powerful piece of software at this current price. What you get in the box is a disc and a slip of paper, the slip of paper has the serial number on so you can install and register, what the piece of paper also informs you is that if your device of choice does NOT have a disc drive then you can download the software directly a very nice and welcoming touch as many laptops, netbooks and even tablets are now powerful enough to run software of this nature but without a disc drive its been impossible to do this (legally).

Installation is quick and painless however it once again enforces the fear and intimidation of the product by showing us some users work which is of an EXTREMELY high standard indeed.

Ok so lets cut to the chase, this is a vector based desktop publishing suite. What does that mean? well in basic terms if you have outgrown Microsoft Office and want to add a bit more pizazz to your leaflets, flyers, cd covers, adverts, posters, business cards etc etc then this is the next step up. You can manipulate all your fonts create predetermined shapes add color, shadow, outline contour and many many other features too numerous to mention. You also have the ability to trace objects too with a wide range of detail from basic black and white copy to full colour clip arts so you can essentially change any elements of images, for example you could trace the McDonalds logo and change the yellow M a different colour with the click of a button. The fact that it is a vector based application means this can be as deep as you want it to be. You can actually change the shape of things or create your own shapes with pin point accuracy really opening up the boundaries of what you can do with regards your project. I would urge anyone new to the software or even desktop publishing as a whole to watch the tutorial videos included as they give a quite comprehensive look at many (buy by no means all) of the features and tools available.

For its price this really is unbeatable in my opinion and I for one will be a CorelDRAW fan for a very long time indeed.
I simply have scratched the surface of what this software can do and with a massive array of online tutorials on YouTube etc the only thing holding you back is time and effort.
