3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 27 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the previous books, but felt that this had been written as a movie script. Plus I found a 50-year old Bridget with two very young cildren to be implausible. It would have been more realistic for her children to have been teenagers with the accompanying problems. I did read to the end, but didn't find the characters to be truly engaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very reasonably priced, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this to go with a new bikini I just bought with very similar colours. It matches beautifully, arrived in good time and is as pictured. It is slightly smaller than my other sarongs which will make it difficult to tie in ways other than the simplest knot, which is a shame

Ordered this for my girlfriend's daughter's christening present. It is beautifully packed in a little satin lined box. Very attractive and better than expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coconut Water - all natural and fabulous, 3 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first discovered Vita Coconut water on a recent trip to Hawaii. Everybody in America is now drinking this super drink. It's all natural (straight out of the coconut) and is a natural source of electrolytes, with a minimum of calories. A perfect anytime drink, especially for those amongst us who dislike hot drinks.
I was very happy to discover that I could order this from Amazon UK and have now placed a monthly order for the 4 litre pack.
If you like a drink that is healthy and not too sweet with an interesting flavour, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Bought two for my boyfriend as I couldn't see anything similar in shops. He loves them as they easy enough to clean and hold any size spoon when cooking.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't swivel in my car, 3 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks good, feels good ... but didn't work in my car. I have a Toyota Yaris and it simply did not swivel. So I had to return it. I had tried it out on a kitchen chair and it worked fine, although I have to say that despite all the fluffy cushioning it still felt very hard. I wouldn't l ike to sit on it for a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly as expected, 31 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used to have a CorningWare square casserole when I cooked for a family of four in the U.S. Having left it behind when I moved back to the U.K. I recently discovered that I do need it sometimes. It was surprising to discover that CorningWare is so hard to buy in the UK. Everyone in the US uses it, and for good reason: it is durable, attractive and EASY to clean. Quite different from ordinary Pirex casserole dishes which never seem to come completely clean.
However, I was disappointed when this set arrived as although it is described as being made up of 6 pieces, that is somewhat ambiguous. There are 2 small casseroles, one a little deeper than the other. There is only one over proof lid to fit both of these, so they could not be used together. The other lid is for the microwave. Also the larger dish, which I had expected to be like my previous one, was not nearly as large. It would be hard to make a casserole for 4 people in this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using Revlon Equave conditioner for several years. They've changed the packaging but he contents remain the same. It does a great job of bringing back body and curl to my hair when there is no humidity in the air. I transfer some to a mini bottle to carry on overnights etc.

Highly recommended; lasts for ages too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, 23 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since I have curly hair I have chosen to use this shampoo for many years. I don't seem to be able to buy it at any of our local hairdressers, so am very glad that Amazon have it available. It works for me and I also like the size of the bottle which makes it not too heavy to carry when travelling.

Redken Fresh Curls:
Since I have curly hair I have used this product for years. I don't seem to be able to buy it at any of our local hairdressers, so am particularly glad that Amazon is offering it for purchase on line. It certainly works for me, and since the bottles are not too large they are easy to take in my swimming bag to the spa.
