Exciting, well paced thriller
I really enjoyed this book. It was well written, with a few twists and turns, and very realistic characters. A book that kept me guessing till almost the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great smooth even writer. Mess free., 16 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely smooth writer with none of the mess of a traditional fountain pen. I love writing with a fountain pens and have owned numerous models from expensive Waterman and Cross pens down to cheap dip pens. This pen is so simple and the ink is in a sealed case. You can chuck it in a bag and there's no leakage. It has a nice medium nib that has a smooth and even ink flow. No inky fingers either. I love it's simplicity and ease of use. Great value for money. I will be definitely buying more of these.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice photos but not very inspiring salad wise, 16 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I bought this as I make a salad every day for work and was looking for done ideas to liven up my lunchbox.
Although the salads were very beautifully assembled and photographed the recipes themselves were pretty basic. Most of the salads were only three or four ingredients and used the same few dressings. Not very exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mess free elegant writing. Great pen., 29 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I Didn't expect much of such a cheap fountain pen however I was very impressed when it arrived. It is a nIce smooth writer, no scratching , and a smooth uninterrupted ink flow. Ink is in a sealed barrel and there is no mess, no ink stained fingers. For the price it is an excellent disposable fountain pen. Much less messy and easier to use/transport than a traditional refillable fountain pen. I will definitely be ordering more of these. I love the purple colour, It looks very elegant on the page.

Remington AC9096 Silk Dryer
Remington AC9096 Silk Dryer
Price: £36.66

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't really make my hair any smoother, 10 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A reasonable, but ordinary hair dryer. It was easy to use if a bit on the heavy side.
I found the heat settings were a bit odd. The hot setting was too hot to use and the normal setting was unusually cool. Cooler than other hair dryers. However it did have a powerful blast. It dried my hair quickly even with the cool setting but the power of the blast made it difficult to get my hair smooth. The rest of the family use it too and have commented their hair felt noticeably softer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok for energy boost but no noticeable weight loss, 10 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm not really into diet supplements and was curious to see if they would work. Well I took them as instructed and don't feel they made any difference to my weight loss at all. However I did feel more energetic when I took them which maybe down to their caffeine content.
