Keep it Vegan: 100 simple, healthy & delicious dishes
Keep it Vegan: 100 simple, healthy & delicious dishes

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple book, consistent results., 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this book several times weekly, and the results are generally very good. Occasionally I must adjust the spice to my taste, but that's to be expected as preference varies.

Written for UK in metric units, so the ingredients are accessible in UK supermarkets and easy to measure to UK standards, which is helpful.

The recipes are generally quite simple and creative, taking a new take on old classics like lasagna and bruschetta.

I recommend this to any of my friends who are interested in a bit of vegan cooking, UK style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, cleans up well., 24 Jun. 2015

This brush glove worked very well on a black, short-haired dog for removing excess hair. She didn't mind being stroked with it and it did a good job removing the hair and cleaned up well. I would purchase again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yawn., 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book dragged on forever, it was like having my fingernails removed without anesthetic.

About one-third of the way through, I was really tired of the book and just wanted it to be over, to find out who was behind it all, and be done. There was little to grip the reader, and it was just a lot longer than it needed to be, as there wasn't much of a story between the covers.

The Kindle version was fine in its formatting, usage, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality graphic on shirt, well-sized., 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My father-in-law liked this a lot as a Christmas gift. The graphic was still large enough even on an XL T-shirt, which was better than what I had expected.

The graphic is really lovely, and the spectrum of colours in the background gives it something special.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works fairly well, tip wears down quickly., 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works fairly well, but the tip quickly became worn and no longer wrote in a bold stroke, rather a streaky stroke.

I haven't had any issues with it not flowing well, just that when you press the tip down it results in the fast wearing mentioned above.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality dried tomatoes., 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have ordered this several times without any issue. The tomatoes rehydrate fairly well in hot water, but can be quite salty; of course, they are dried and preserved with salt, so one can't complain too loudly about that!

4.0 out of 5 stars Repeat purchase - fantastic for large chest/small band, 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second Panache sports bra in this style and again I am impressed by the fit and quality.

Unlike other sports bras for larger busts, this bra has individual cups and underwire to support and not to squash, preventing the "brick" which actually turns a chest into a bouncing weight straining the tendons that hold the breasts up, ultimately defeating the purpose.

This bra arrived in good time and it fit perfectly, despite me recalculating the band size (one band size up to one cup size down) as my old panache sports bra was a bit too snug for me and occasionally made breathing a chore when really pushing the cardio. The 30 band fits perfectly and I haven't lost any support for it. It covers my chest fully and I don't have any bubbling, apart from a small bit of "side boob" which is evident for me in any bra. This bra goes fairly far up the sides and offers good side coverage, keeping any side exposure to a minimum.

I used the bra this morning for the first time at an intensive training circuit and I am pleased to say that my bra was the last thing on my mind. It wasn't too snug around the band, and I didn't think once on my chest bouncing around nor being squashed.

The one gripe I have about the bra is the racerback conversion - a common complaint. It just doesn't work the way it should and digs into the shoulders and neck area so much that it makes my shoulders alternately numb and on fire. That being said, the straps are relatively long and making them any longer to accommodate the racerback style would be a challenge. I just wear it with short straps on the shoulders and don't worry that someone might see my bra - it blends right in and doesn't look like the medical sports bras of the past for those with larger chests.

Overall I can't recommend this bra enough for anyone struggling with the issue of a heavy chest keeping them from exercising to the fullest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good way to work some art history into my daily routine., 6 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This calendar has been a fabulous addition to our home. The photos are high-quality and each month has a unique theme. March is 20th-century design and every day I look forward to having a closer look at the photos and the designers/dates, and the larger analysis at the top makes for good reading as well without being taxing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading description. Not safe for a dog out on a run or walk., 13 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The description for this muzzle needs to clearly indicate that it is not safe to put this on a dog that a) bites, b) is going for a run/walk.

The dog can still pinch using this muzzle. More still, it prevents a dog from panting, the way that a dog lets off excess body heat. If the dog is running and not able to pant, it can overheat and potentially die.

This muzzle might be appropriate for clipping/grooming, but a basket muzzle is needed for going out. Baskerville do very good basket muzzles for decent prices. I got another brand for my dog at the Range.

As a new dog fosterer, I can confidently say that this product description is inadequate with regard to safety information and does not describe the safe usage of this muzzle.


Valupak 10 mg Zinc Gluconate Tablets - Pack of 60 Tablets
Valupak 10 mg Zinc Gluconate Tablets - Pack of 60 Tablets
Offered by New Health Care
Price: £2.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and effective., 5 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These tabs have helped me overcome a zinc deficiency and while they don't contain zinc gluconate, rather zinc citrate, citrate is an acceptable form for supplementation and so I'm not bothered by the discrepancy.

Really well-priced vitamin compared to others and a good addition to a vegetarian/vegan diet.
