5.0 out of 5 stars Noticed results after a couple of days, 25 April 2013

Ive used whitening toothpastes in the past that dont really work. This one does and its a great price. Noticed it removing slight stains after a couple of uses. It comes complete with a special toothbrush and toothpicks for your handbag. Bargain!

If you are already a Nurse Jackie fan, series 3 is great, although not as good as the first 2 series, its funny and worth adding to your collection non the less.


Mountain Hardwear Womens Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket Large

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny.......HIGHLY recommend!, 25 April 2013

I have been searching high and low for a new down jacket, reading reviews, trying on in shops and asking friends. Everyone kept telling my buy a Rab one but i wasn't convinced and after buying a Mountain Hardware Beanie and base layers in the past, i was impressed with Mountain Hardware equipment so bit the bullet. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! Its incredible! Its wafer thin, how does this keep you warm then you may ask but trust me.....it does! Weighing a few ounces and being able to tuck into its own pocket means it can be carried in your backpack with no wasted space or excessive weight, in fact it would easily fit in a cargo pant side pocket! Its been tried and tested in 60mph winds at 400m above sea level and on the same walk at sea level in warm sunshine. It easily kept the wind and cold out whilst walking at height and in the sunshine it breaths well and doesnt make you overheat like many down jackets are prone to. All in all, a worthwhile investment and an incredible down jacket. BUY ONE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Light and warm....a oerfect beanie!, 25 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When it arrived, i was initially disappointed with how thin the hat was as all the other beanies i have owned have been much thicker. Think the thickness of a t-shirt and you won't be far off. My first thought was there is no way this flimsey thing would keep my head warm................oh how wrong i was! Its first outing was on a particularly cold and windy day, decending from 400m and in howling 60mph winds this hat proved itself immediately, my head and most importantly my ears were toasty warm. Once i got to sea level and the wind had disappeared, my head got much warmer but i kept it on to see if its wicking capabilities were up to much.......sure enough, this hat kept the light wind out of my ears but didnt make my head overheat like it does with the much thicker wooly beanies i had worn. Once i decided to take it off as the sun came out, the fact that its so thin and light proved another invaluable asset, it scrunches up into a ball so you can simply put it in your pocket without a massive bulge! All in all, perfect, couldnt ask for a better outdoors beanie. Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars 07 plate 3 series BMW, works a charm!, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing to say other than it works a treat in my 07 3 series m-sport touring. My ipod classic now works perfectly with this lead. Easy to install, and once you select ipod on the stereo, you control the ipod via the steering wheel controls so you can put the ipod away out of the way in the arm rest. HIGHLY recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bit of kit!, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this sleeping bag as i was taking part in a 2 week Expedition of hiking and canoeing in Canada, whilst sleeping under canvas. Although we went in October, the weather during the day was pretty warm but the temperature dropped to sub zero at night and the tents we were in weren't particularly amazing quality. To note, i get EXTREMELY cold, especially at night so i bought this bag expecting big things.

I wasnt disappointed! I never got cold! It was pretty light for the quality of it and it easily stuffs down to a small size. The only 3 points i need to make are 1) its down filled, therefore it has a rather distinct odour! I felt the need every morning to apologise to my tent mate for the wierd smell but she said she didnt notice it, so i suspect i was being paranoid! 2) be prepared to sweep out your tent every morning, the feathers get everywhere! 3) Your body heat combined with the cold temperatures seem to make the down "sweat" so in the morning, this teamed with cold morning damp temperatures, means the outside of the bag feels slightly damp (although to be fair i think this was massively exasperated by the previously mentioned poor quality tent!) This said, 20 mins hung in the sun and the sleeping bag is completely dry again.

Zips were extremely easy to use and didnt let me down, stuff sack is great and its comfortable once inside, because its not a mummy style bag, you wont wake up with "dead" arms and can turn over in your bag easily. And if like me, you get concerned about bugs getting in the top, dont, i never had issues and the draw string top means if required you can pull if tight around your neck. Yes, it doesnt have a head piece but you dont need one, i simply put on a hat if it was particularly chilly when i went to bed but every morning i found i had pulled off the hat in the middle of the night to cool down!

All in all, i recommend the bag if you suffer with the cold. Great bag, great quality, great price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to fit and look great!, 28 Dec 2012

I bought my new BMW 3 Series M Sport and because of the old OCD i wasnt happy with the original centre caps as they had begun to fall victim of water and salt ingress and didnt look too good. Because my car is Black i decided to get Black and White centre caps and stumbled across these. When they arrived i was impressed how good they looked and they felt pretty sturdy for the actual price. I was concerned with fitting them and after having a look i decided to try and get the old caps out without taking off the alloy. With a watchmakers screwdriver and a steady hand, the old caps came out easily. The new caps actually are better quality than the original ones and have a retaining loop on the back, unlike the original ones. Once i cleaned the alloy, the new ones simply popped in and are solidly held in place. All in all, they look great! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks great!, 28 Dec 2012

Looks great and arrives in a nice box complete with a tiny BMW dust bag! Easy to fit the key inside and so far is really sturdy. A great idea to protect your expensive key. The only point to note is that you cant attach any other keys to it once its in the cover but if you are happy to keep the key on its own and keep your house keys separate then its a great investment to protect your pride and joys key! Recommend!

Arrived promptly and as described. Easy to fit, this great quality tax disc holder looks great, is easy to fit, comes complete with sticky pads (with a few spare) and because of the twist off back, it means that changing the disc isn't a nause like the original ones that required fiddly allen key screw removal. Recommend it, looks great in my black 3 series M sport! Get one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hard drive, 30 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have 2 of these, i bought my dad one last year for Christmas, and this one was for my brother for his birthday.........thats how much i rate them. Simply plug and play and away you go. I use a Macbook so i had to format it before i used it so i can use it with Apple and Microsoft computers, its really easy to do, simply google it and there are loads of step by step instructions. My dad and brother both use microsoft computers so they use the pre-loaded WD software which my dad massively rates. Everytime you plug this into your computer, it reads both drives and automatically copies new files from your computer onto the hard drive ensuring you have a complete mirror of your PC docs......simples! Otherwise you just do what i do and drag and drop files to it.

Its capable of being encrypted and has the option to password protect it.

Its small, light and sleek. Comes in a variety of colours, i have the 1TB red one and 500GB white one, both look great and my father has the 1TB silver and my brother the 1TB blue. All colours look good, i just buy whichever one is cheapest at the time personally!

We all know the price of these things fluctuate daily so keep an eye on them and if they are cheap, buy them there and then, they could double in price over night!

As with all hard drives, my advice, make sure you have more than one. Not just because of failure (which i dont think they will unless you are a klutz and drop it!) but you should never keep all your eggs in one basket, 1TB of data is a lot of data to lose. Personally i have 3 hard drives which i keep at different locations just in case of fire, break ins etc. Your call though.

All in all thoroughly recommend these drives. And i highly recommend if you carry it around with you, you invest in the WD hard case (link below) they make the drive a little bigger but are worth it for knocks and bumps.
