4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and well made, 24 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great laundry bin that folds flat. The chute opening is ample and the attached lid opens fully for easy removal. It holds one large load of washing.

The only downside is that the bin itself is not machine washable so has to be sponged down periodically

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value and excellent suction, 24 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At the price this is easily equal to a cylinder style dyson. The cost has been saved with cheaper plastic attachments which do create static. The other is there is no place to store attachments. The metal section of pipe simply extends with the push of a slider. All that being said the suction power is so good you have to open the slider on the pipe to be able to move the floor attachment along!

It is lightweight which makes it very easy to pull along or carry but on the downside it is also easy to fall over onto its side.

Emptying is straight forward with the dust bin easy to remove and release the base to let everything fall out of the bottom. It doesn't appear as easy to take apart to wash as the dyson equivilent, but it is only £50 and the dyson up to 4 X that.

The cord rewind is strong enough to pull the cord in but only just so may slow down over time. There is a slot to store the hose pipe when not in use.

A lot of vacuum for your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, well., 20 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is stage two of a multistage system. It is light and not greasy at all. It is primarily a hydra tor and does it well leaving your skin feeling fresh and light. It claims 100% of people said they are pleased with this product, that's a lofty claim but I wouldn't reduce this with my opinion.

The only loss of star is cost, it's certainly not the most expensive cream by a long shot but still pricey and a certain low price supermarket has products arguably as good.

It has an ingredient list as long as your arm but whatever is in it, it does work and leaves smoother softer skin

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic lightweight travel organisers, 18 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are good value and well made. For those thinking of airline weight limits the four weigh a total 250g meaning a little over 60g each. They have a main zip to open the pack which is a two way one meaning you can open it either end by moving both parts of the zip round saving emptying the contents out to get things at the bottom or from one end They are ideal for anything from medication to underwear. The mesh front lets you see exactly what's in each one.

Great packing cubes, small ones are about 18cm x 15cm and 7cm deep and the larger ones are 38x15x7

200 5:2 Diet Recipes: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook
200 5:2 Diet Recipes: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook
by Angela Dowden
Edition: Paperback
Price: £2.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than tuna salad everyday !, 18 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is another in the range of hamlyn compact recipe books. They do make an excellent set particularly for people beginning the cook book collection.

This one has lots of great ideas for very low calorie meals and snacks to keep your calorie intake right down for fasting days. It takes the tedium out of repetitive meals and makes me look forward to the two days of the 5:2 world.

Like the other books my only criticism is the tight binding making it hard to keep the page open but this is a minor inconvenience.

I recommend this and indeed the whole range from the ones I have seen so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the wireless version in my opinion and cheaper too, 12 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The best thing about this is the app that keeps and sorts the readings. This plug in to your iPhone version is much more straight forward than the Bluetooth and no less convenient. As with all these sort of testers it's the strips that have quite a high ongoing cost, around 50p a strip and then the lancets. That's the same for either model.

Compared to the stand alone testers in their own little pack these are very slightly less convenient but and its a big but, the collation of the data to show the dr or for your own review is excellent. The app works with other monitoring products so you can keep all your data in one place. In all honesty I would go for this cheaper plug in model rather than the more expensive wireless one.

Comes with different colour bumper style protectors for the plug went not in use and in this kit 10 lancets.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the easiest set up but good for keeping the records, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The best thing about this is the app that keeps and sorts the readings. The Bluetooth setup is not straightforward for anyone not familiar with setting up and pairing Bluetooth but it does only need doing once. The plug in to your iPhone version is much more straight forward and no less convenient. As with all these sort of testers it's the strips that have quite a high ongoing cost, around 50p a strip. That's the same for either model.

Compared to the stand alone testers in their own little pack these are less convenient but and its a big but, the collation of the data to show the dr or for your own review is excellent. The app works with other monitoring products so you can keep all your data in one place. In all honesty I would go for the cheaper be smaller plug in model to get the best of both worlds.


200 Light Gluten-free Recipes: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook
200 Light Gluten-free Recipes: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook
by Angela Dowden
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely tasty recipes!, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is packed full of delicious recipes all of whic of course are gluten free. But to be fair many of them are just low calorie recipes that would have gluten anyway. That said there's plenty using gluten free flour as an alternative.

It's a small book but thick. The only problem with the book is that it's a tightly bound paperback so the pages don't stay open easily but if you use a book stand it's fine!

The important thing however are the recipes and they are great. Overall recommended as a low calorie cook book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This has really helped, 19 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is comfortable and convenient. It is ideal for car journeys and sitting at the desk/table/armchair. The only draw back is waiting for the cold pack to get cold enough so requires a little planning. The fastening is very flexible to fit most sizes and it is easily packable for travelling.

It certainly beats ice packs and towel or a hot water bottle!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unequivocally, unhesitatingly recommend., 19 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you remember the old large DIY books of years gone by then the style and layout of this will be familiar. This books guides you from before you get your new best friend, choosing the make and model, right the way through grooming, training and looking after their health.

It's full of guidance and tips, how to train using a clicker, moving to greeting and verbal commands, it even covers taking you dog with you on a bike ride. I am very impressed and I have had a dog all my life. Even for people like me it is useful and informative, my friend who is a professional in the dog world was also impressed and that tells me something........

the layout is clear and easy to understand and I highly recommend, in fact if I could insist every new dog owner should have this book I would!
