Weetabix Strawberry Breakfast Drink 250 ml (Pack of 8)
Weetabix Strawberry Breakfast Drink 250 ml (Pack of 8)
Price: £11.92

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but doesn’t stop me eating, 16 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These drinks are great and I would happily drink one every morning however it did not replace breakfast for me – only supplemented it – and I think people would struggle to only have this and feel satisfied. It is for this reason (and as other reviewers have pointed out the high sugar content) that I have dropped it a star.

The Strawberry version is nice – very smooth and a strong clear strawberry taste – however having also tried the chocolate version I prefer it but both are very drinkable.

The Chocolate flavour is my favourite of the versions I have tried (however it reminds me a lot of Weight Watchers Chocolate Milkshakes), it is very smooth and quite refreshing when served chilled (as recommended) in the morning.


Logitech PowerShell Controller with Battery
Logitech PowerShell Controller with Battery
Price: £70.22

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not quite brilliant, 16 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
PROS:
- The controller looks great and feels well made
- Comes with headphone extender and iPod touch adapter
- Battery lasts fairly long and has a light to show how much power is remaining

CONS:
- Some of the games I have were not compatible
- As other reviewers have said (and I agree) the D-pad is a bit of a let down - a stick just feels more natural to play with these days!

Highly recommended for people who play a lot of games on their phone!


Tacwise HD-73 73/12mm Heavy Duty Plier Bundle Staples (5 Boxes of 5000)
Tacwise HD-73 73/12mm Heavy Duty Plier Bundle Staples (5 Boxes of 5000)
Price: £48.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job?, 18 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Need to staple together large amounts of paper (e.g. 15-100 pages)? This is the industrial stapler for you - it works brilliantly anywhere up to around 100 pages (I have not tried it out on more however even at 100 it starts to become a bit of a struggle).

Need a normal stapler (e.g. for less than 15 pages)? Look elsewhere - the staples this uses are industrial size and therefore for anything less than 15 pages the huge staple looks silly and is impractical.

Additional bonus: The amount of staples you get included is great - 25,000! - which if you are working on an industrial basis with this might not last incredibly long for home users (like me) I can't ever see myself needing to buy more staples!

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch the circle being broken, 27 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is such a hopeful but heartbreaking film. Told out of chronological order, the love story of Didier and Elise unfolds alongside the falling apart that occurs around the terminal illness of their young daughter Maybelle. The soundtrack is the real standout for the film - especially if you like bluegrass - and even if you're not usually a fan of foreign-language films the classic folk and bluegrass songs really make it a must-see. How the couple sing and play their way through all the joys and grief of their relationship is a perfect soundtrack of their lives. The performances are amazing and heartfelt, especially that of the daughter Maybelle. Please note though that the film is gritty, hard-hitting and will tug your heartstrings from the very first scene, but I strongly recommend it.


Braun Silk-epil 7 Skin Spa Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator and Sonic Exfoliation Brush
Braun Silk-epil 7 Skin Spa Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator and Sonic Exfoliation Brush
Price: £113.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Great epilator, 13 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very pleased with the product. The switchable heads allowed good contouring over different surfaces which provided good coverage, even removing shorter hairs. The heads detached easily and it was very easy to switch between exfoliator and epilator function. The small brush also greatly facilitated the cleaning of the device. The Braun Silk-épil 7 can be used in the shower as well as dry which makes it even more convenient. Charging the device is very simple but note it is the standard two prong plug (so you may require a UK adapter if you don't have one). The spotlight illuminates shadowed areas of skin which ensures a more even coverage.Very clear instructions. Also includes a small bag to hold all the parts which is very convenient.


PaperPro StandOut Stapler - Blue
PaperPro StandOut Stapler - Blue
Price: £10.03

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stapler!, 13 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
PROS:
- Very light weight
- Works well; easily staples between 10-15 pages
- Small, and even though made out of plastic feels robust
- Uses standard 26/6 staples

CONS:
- As it is symmetric in design I sometimes forget which side actually staples (although this might just me be)
- No additional features that other staplers might offer (such as being able to do "removable" staples or being able to staple things to the wall

On the whole I am very pleased with this stapler and would recommend.


An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice (Oxford World's Classics)
An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice (Oxford World's Classics)
by William Godwin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars An argument for intellectual and moral happiness, 12 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
William Godwin is a name that nowadays receives more mention in relation to his famous wife, daughter and son-in-law than any personal merit, and yet with the republication of this book it is not hard to see that he is a philosophical and literary giant in his own right. His ideas rebel against the moral decay of man (something as prevalent today as it was in his) and while I cannot help but feel the apparent naļveté in much of his writing, I also cannot deny the sheer magnetism and optimism that flows throughout it.

Godwin's theories concerning political justice centre more on the moral condition of man as an individual rather than on any specific rules set by a few. It was his belief that it was within all men to be virtuous and veracious; to put their own needs and wants aside in favour of what was greater for mankind as a whole. From this stems what man's position should be concerning slavery, war, property, crime and punishment, etc. And as Government stands as representative of the people, it must also stand as morally upright representatives of a morally upright people. In such a case all decisions would be simple, for everyone would see the right and wrong of all things. Political justice would always stand as true justice. An ideal world view penned by a talented thinker.


Case Logic KSB101 Sling Backpack for DSLR Camera
Case Logic KSB101 Sling Backpack for DSLR Camera
Price: £88.41

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile SLR Bag, 10 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm used to using a single should SLR camera bag, so this was something I wanted to have as it offered easier carrying and more storage space.

The size of the bag is quite nice. It's not large but nice and compact and the quality of the manufacture of it is excellent. The overall build of the bag offers lot of options for the user, with zips on the front and size which allow for cameras, lenses to be placed in the bag, and the compartments can be taken out and changed to suit what size or amount you desire. There is also a quick storage for a camera with lens attached on the top compartment of the bag which is great for getting it out quickly and keeping it well protected.

The bag is nice to carry around has great padding in the shoulders. The bag also has a covering in a pocket for if it rains to keep everything dry. Overall it's a pricey bag for a camera, but it's quality and usefulness for any avid SLR camera user is well worth it as it will last a long time and also enjoyable to use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but too expensive, 10 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've only been using these grips for a couple of weeks but I do feel they make my workout tougher. The grips are comfortable as they are a simple construction of a hard rubber that you can slide onto a bar when the weights are off. If you use fixed weights the grips are split longitudinally and can be pried open to slip onto the bars.

While the grips do seem to do what the manufacture claims, they are just too expensive for what they are, so for that reason alone I'm dropping tow stars from the review.
