4.0 out of 5 stars Nice & decently sturdy, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a leather folder mainly for durability, however some of them are quite expensive.
Found this Eposti Folder to be a middle ground between quality and price. Not too fancy, but not cheap looking neither.
I felt like i paid exactly what it was worth, in something that will last me several months of daily paperwork usage.

The inside "pockets" are limited but, in my case, a minimalistic feel was what i was looking for.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a let down, 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all i have to agree it does not seem to be the best of shampoos.
After a day the hair gets greasy and itchy, and the smell.... well, the smell is what to be expected from a tea tree product. Pungent.
Or in other words, i now understand why tea tree oil is considered a natural bug repelent, as no bug would approach such strong aroma.

Also, haven't seen any improvement in my skin problems, but might be too soon to judge.
Overall would probably look for something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deus Ex goes rat hunting, 28 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dishonored (PS3) (Video Game)
My first reaction after all the hype was "Is that it?!?". I wasn't really impressed during my first 10 minutes of the game, just set the bar too high and it seemed to have nothing new about it. But oh boy, after the first hour of two it takes hold of you and keeps it until the story unfolds.

It gives you the choice between stealth and all-out murder (altough thankfully never a "Game over - you were seen), and some say it only rewards stealth play but i see it slightly different: it balances things out by making the easy choice a bit harder by means of a "chaos system". The more chaos you sow, the darker the plague infested streets will become.
Like Deus Ex, you can also spend Runes (which you pick up) in powers that will help you in whatever style of play you chose, so spend them carefully, even if there are plenty of them available for those unafraid of exploring and risking a bit.

On one side i would like to have some of the characters a bit more developed, there is, however, a lot of hidden story hints throught the game. Sometimes you just have to follow your heart (hehe).

Worth at least 2 playthroughs, got a bit bored during my 3rd though.

Recommended.

[On a side note, i made the mistake of going from one stealth game (Dishonored) to another (Hitman) and by comparison the controls seemed to hard and play so unnatural that i had to stop after the 1st mission. Perhaps i'll try again when Hitman has *Blink*]


Fossil Men's Decker Chronograph Watch Ch2703

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking "Hugo Boss - style" watch at reduced price, 28 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you look at this watch from afar you may think it is a Hugo Boss watch. It's very dark overall, with its black face and grey hands, but it serves it's purpose well as it appears to be a much more expensive watch than it really is. This should be considered in case of low light surroundings, though.

Before purchasing, i was a bit worried about the silicon straps as sometimes they give a "cheap" feel to watches. However it does not feel cheap to me, but adequate, just wouldn't mind if it was slightly larger. The strap also bring springs for easy replacement, however it makes me wonder if it will affect, in any way, the general sturdiness when the strap is affected by the unavoidable "wear & tear".

From the available pictures it seemed a bit bigger to me, but still satisfactory.

A bargain at 65

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 26 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darksiders II (PS3) (Video Game)
Story not interesting at all, there are some good details here and there but usually going from 1 place to another, or even going through dungeons feels more like a chore than something worthwhile.

It could be just a matter of taste though, and it is worth a try if undecided.

As for me i just consider it another Kingdoms of Amalur, decent but boring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, but ok, 26 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading reviews regarding flavour and difficult blending those were actually the aspect in which i was pleasantly surprised. Taste is actually not that bad (strawberry), and pretty easy to blend in water with just a couple of shakes.

On the negative side...... nutricional value. Basically on the poor side, especially if you're hoping for a proper percentage of whey or good quality additives, and also given the quantity of carbs and fat.

I would not recomend it to many people though, only those wishing for a quick fix when money is running low.

Hayabusa Mizuchi Fight Shorts - White 34
Hayabusa Mizuchi Fight Shorts - White 34

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product even if a bit unexpected, 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So first of all some valuable feedback to future buyers regarding size:
I am 6'3 and weigh 210 pounds (1.91m, 95Kg) and chose size 34. I was a bit undecided regarding 34 ou 36, since the reviews were a bit mixed, but I am glad i chose size 34 as these shorts are quite ROOMY. Actually if they were slightly better fitted they would get no complaint from me (which i will recheck after the 1st wash), but still feel they are the correct size.

Also, i had never seen Hayabusa shorts firsthand so some details were a bit unexpected, however some may learn from my experience, for example:
I was expecting the material to be quite strong, perhaps resembling beach shorts, but it is not so. The whole shorts stretch slightly, not only the inside leg black strap, perhaps to avoid tear. On the other hand, this also makes the shorts feel quite comfortable and soft to touch, which I did not foresee.

There are a couple of video reviews available that mention kinda of an "hexagon shaped web pattern", i thought it was the material's pattern reflected by light, but no. There is in fact a pattern behind the left leg, and as a base for the dragon print on the right leg. It is not reflected by light, it's just there.

So in short:

Comfortable, soft and roomy.
Big sized.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite nice, but make sure you try it first., 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So I bought this watch for my GF a bit over a month ago as an early Christmas present, and once it arrive it's presentation was quite nice. Looks sturdy, feels heavy in a kind of way that reflects quality.
Once she opened her present our first assessment was that it needed 2 or 3 links removed to suit her wrist, however that was exactly the problem:
Since these links are quite big, 2 links removed meant a loose watch while 3 links removed made it too tight. Some brands like CK have 1/2 size links to fix this problem, however this watch does not provide such solution.
I'm currently trying to convince her that loose watches, like bracelets, are very fashionable but if all fails maybe she'll use it for Summer when wrists become a bit larger...

Try it at a Jewellery shop first, then save 50 on Amazon...


Be Ready When the Sh*t Goes Down: A Survival Guide to the Apocalypse
Be Ready When the Sh*t Goes Down: A Survival Guide to the Apocalypse

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh, so it IS about the appocalipse..., 21 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the 1st book, "Got Fight", so I was expecting the same kind of humor and hopefully more juicy behind the scenes stories. However what you get is a long rambling about getting ready for the end of the world, which is exactly what it tells you it will do in the cover. So good news: no surprises. Bad news: yeah, no surprises.
Still made me laugh once or twice but got bored after 20 or 30 pages. Now it sits at my bedside table, just in case insomnia strikes and i need to read a page or two, even if the cover has provoked a couple of weird looks from my GF.

In short, not as good as the 1st one, but at least honest about it. And Dumbledore dies in the end.
