5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing little thing, 15 Feb 2014
After my other half got an xperia Z1 ultra with a set of these I couldn't help but have a play with them (never come across Bluetooth headphones before) instantly fell in love and had to get a set to use with my iPhone 5.
I was a bit suspicious of these as they were 10 cheaper then all the others on amazon (at the time) but ordered to see and they seem genuine. All the text on the back is the same as my partners. Only difference is mine are white and pink and his are black. Battery lasts ages, paired up with my iPad tonight whiles watching a series on netflix (which the headset also plays and pauses from it's control) and it lasted from 330pm until 9pm and I'd used it for an hour and a half the night before.
Sound quality is amazing and delivery was very quick. Quicker then stated in the email even.

The only annoyance is the low battery sound which goes off every 5 minutes for the last 30 or so minutes, that's not the problem with the headset just an inbuilt way to tell you the battery is nearly dead as there is no other way to indicate it.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend these. Great durable headset and a great way to keep you phone and even headphones hidden away.

Classic boxed set (Hunger Games Trilogy)
Classic boxed set (Hunger Games Trilogy)
by Suzanne Collins
Edition: Paperback
Price: 17.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant trilogy, 2 Oct 2013
Absolutely love these books. Have them on my iPad and had to buy the paperbacks.
Despite other reviews saying all they got was a paper sleeve mine came in an actual box, so for me this is a boxed set. The books are all of good quality and although I haven't got to the end of the 3rd book yet, appear to be as they should.

As with most people the film introduced me to the books and I'm glad for it. Both forms of media (book and film) are excellent and can be enjoyed with or without the other.
Suzanne Collins writing draws you into this world but her characters keep you hooked throughout. I am so disappointed whenever I reach the last book and for me this is tied top place for a trilogy series (newsflash trilogy is also there with it)

All in all buy it you won't be disappointed. This is a set that anyone who is an avid reader should own.

Superhero Timeline T-Shirt (XXXL, BLACK)
Superhero Timeline T-Shirt (XXXL, BLACK)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, 14 Jun 2013
I've seen quite a few timeline logos with various different end phrases but this is my favourite.
The quality and fit of the T-shirt is great. The logo is not too large but large enough and very clear and as the 'superhero' isn't any specific brand it can be any.

All in all its a great top.

Iron Man Movie Arc Reactor Glow In The Dark T-shirt - Black - Size: 4XL

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 14 Jun 2013
The T-shirt itself is of a good quality.
The actual design is A LOT smaller then that in the image. Maybe the glow makes it appear larger.
I wouldn't be able to say as it was a gift and I've never seen it glow in the dark, as it didn't glow for me but it had just come out of the wrapper so may need longer in the light to become reactive.

Overall the person it was brought for, loved it. So I'm pleased with it as is he.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works like a dream, 20 Oct 2012
In my search for a HRM with calorie counter I'd looked at both very expensive and very cheap models. I'd say this model falls very much on the cheaper side but you wouldn't know it from the product itself. It feels high quality and very solid a durable.

I ordered this one as its one of very few models that had mostly positive feedback. It was also the least expensive of those models so figured it was worth a shot.

When it arrived it was hard to figure out but after reading the instructions fully I set up my user, changed my units to lbs and inches and I was away.
As far as I can tell this watch/chest strap combo is very accurate. At the gym the treadmills heart rate reading was the same as my reading on the watch and on the cross trainer it actually detected my chest strap and monitored my heart rate without me having to touch the handles (a pleasent surprise!)
Calories burned seemed very accurate. Again with the cross trainer and treadmill programmed to my statistics the readout from both was within a few calories of that of this HRM.

I wasn't sure how to get it to detect my heart rate at first (when I put on the chest strap) but the strap works best directly under you bust (literally where your boobs stop) and the bumpy strips need I be slightly moist to get it going but once that's done and it's picked up the signal (on the watch signal shows as a little heart) your good to go for hours!

Great price, all the features of a more expensive model in this package for about 1/4 of the price.
I'd say if your a beginner at looking into this stuff (like I still am) then this is where you need to start.

Iron Crowned: Dark Swan 3
Iron Crowned: Dark Swan 3
by Richelle Mead
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling, 31 May 2011
I've recently gone off reading, after many years of going through books in a matter of days.

I ordered Iron crowned as it was one of the series by Richelle Mead I had read (along with Georgina Kincaid series)
The beginning was a bit slow to absorb me but after a few chapters I found it hard to put the book down.

I did feel betrayed by Eugenie in what she did with switching loyalties as easily as she did. I felt at this point she would know Dorian's character and that she isn't so above what he does to get her means across. I do feel Richelle Mead took a step in the wrong direction with that part of the plot line but it then wouldn't have made Kiyo's course of action as dramatic as it was.
I'm hoping she repairs the 'damage' done in this book in her next instalment (which I'm avidly awaiting)
I felt Eugenie was a bit flippant when it came to Dorian finding out what happened though and I know that when something like that happens people react differently but she only apologises when she needs something (not so unlike Dorian after all as he apologises, kind of, when he wants something in the last few pages!)

The sex scenes are also a lot more full on in this book. I'm hoping she doesn't go as far as L.K.Hamilton did as I stopped reading her series as I felt that was all her books had become after 15 or so of them.

All in all this was a book I was disappointed to finish as I just wanted more and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and powerful, 21 Nov 2010
I had a choice between these and a more expensive set of portable speakers for my netbook. In the end the colour clinched it as it is a match for the colour of my netbook.

Glad I went with these.
The are very powerful and capable of putting out a fair amount of bass (which I didn't expect considering their size!)
They plug into the USB port and take their power from the netbook/laptop/pc they are plugged into then they have a normal microphone jack.
Literally plug and play. No messing around.

I'd recommend these if you are looking for portable speakers. They don't come with a carry case but the box they come in is not to big and seems sturdy enough to safely transport the speakers in.
I even shocked my partner with the sound they put out.
Perfect for what I needed (and they are now even cheaper then when I brought them!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely straighteners, 4 Sep 2009
I was on holiday in Blackpool when my straighteners broke.I popped out to get some to replace them and saw these in B&M for 10.
Best thing I've brought in a while.

They heat up very quickly and straighten even my wild mess of thick hair. I'd definitely recommend these. They leave my hair looking sleek, straight and there is very little damage to the hair (compared to past straighteners I've had) Hair is soft to the touch and lasts excellently. Very easy and simple to use and master.

As said before there isn't a bag with these, I've come to think of the box as the bag, its very hard-wearing.

Also I have to say these are the prettiest straighteners I've seen, I adore the flower motif on them.

Derik's Bane: Number 3 in series (Wyndham Werewolves)
Derik's Bane: Number 3 in series (Wyndham Werewolves)
by MaryJanice Davidson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.44

4.0 out of 5 stars A new tangent, 16 July 2009
Met Derek the werewolf in the newest Betsy book (8) and thought phwoar, like to know more about him?
Then this book is definitely for you.
I was very undecided on this book as although I like most of MJ Davidsons stuff there are a few books I find not to my liking.
This book follows in the vain of the Betsy books and the Fred the mermaid ones. If you enjoyed reading any of the books from those series then I think this one will be right up your street.
