4.0 out of 5 stars On trend gold/nude flip flop, 25 Aug. 2011
I have a gold pair of these and they are probably the closest that you will get to nude coloured flip flips. The gold is quite muted and the soles are a pale beige with a thin gold band at the bottom. They are slim-fitting and you have to go up a size in Ipanemas because they come up small. Slightly heavier than most flip flops, they have an anatomical shape and are very comfortable. They do have a small jewelled flag emblem on them but it's quite tasteful.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit loose at the heel, slim-fitting, 24 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a pair of these because I was getting a bit tired of the clown look of white-capped Converse trainers (plus they don't last long). These are quite comfortable but a little heavier than Converses. They are slim-fitting but are a little too wide at the back, making the heel area a bit loose for women. They should make some more feminine styles as well. Good if you're in a rush to get dressed!

2.0 out of 5 stars ET meets Medium - may contain spoilers -, 23 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chosen: Volume 1 (Kindle Edition)
I thought that I would give this a go, as it was a free download. Psychic Mariah is 'visited' during a suicide attempt and finds her powers boosted (whilst clutching onto other people) to the extent that she can find missing children. At first she believes that God has a hand in this and gravitates to the local church folk who help her during her new 'visions.' However, she soon notices physical changes and begins to suspect that there may be another hand in this. I ploughed on until the end (it looks like a sequel is likely) but I didn't enjoy reading about abducted children and although I like sci-fi and fantasy stories it remained unconvincing throughout.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpowering scent, use sparingly, 22 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does have a strong scent which isn't unpleasant but can be a bit overpowering, though it does wear off. Squirt near the ends of your hair and brush in. Too much will make your hair look oily, unsurprisingly, so don't spray enthusiastically.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective if used properly, 22 Aug. 2011
This definitely hydrates hair and leaves it looking shinier but for the best results I recommend squeezing a very thin line along a bristle brush, brushing it in starting halfway down your hair (i.e. not near the roots with the first sweep of the brush) and repeating these steps until you are happy with the results.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fish not feeding from the sticks and hungry, 22 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thought I would test one of these sticks out before I went away and I'm glad I did otherwise I suspect that my fish would have perished. They absorbed water and swelled up (as expected). My tropical fish nosed it around and then ignored it. It developed a furry-looking coating and the fish were clearly ravenous, rushing for flakes when I fed them. Your fish may well survive a few days without food anyway but this food should not be relied upon. I bought this Super Fish Aquarium Computer Controlled Feeder, Single Item instead and it worked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Convenient handbag-sized under-eye concealer pen, 22 Aug. 2011
This is actually called the Mastertouch under-eye concealer pen. It's good for those dark shadows but it works anywhere on the face because it is just a liquid foundation in a pen. You twist it to dispense it on to the spongy applicator end but you will still need to rub it in because the applicator is too hard to use for that . You only need twist it once or twice because quite a lot comes out at one time. It's useful for travelling. If you want an easy-to-use foundation to go with it, I recommend this one: Max Factor Facefinity Foundation Compact - 1 Porcelain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive and detailed account of Henry VII's reign, 21 Aug. 2011
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Most people with any interest in History have a grasp of the Tudor period and this book will expand that knowledge, with a minutely detailed and referenced account of the years of Henry VII's reign, leading up to the very early part of Henry VIII's reign. This is a serious book and is not one for those looking for a bodice-ripper. It is clearly a product of painstaking research. There was some minor chronological to-ing and fro-ing here and there which slightly interrupted the flow. It is difficult to impart a sense of reality to a historical account but the author has managed it with skilful scene-setting prose. It certainly makes you realise how the British Monarchy has devolved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective washing powder, 21 Aug. 2011
This does what it is supposed to do and removes stains from your white/light coloured clothes without digesting them. A subtle, pleasant fragrance. I have found that this is fine for people with sensitive skin, as well. The effect of using non-bio washing detergent in low temperatures all the time will leave a washing machine smelling mouldy as well, so all machines need an occasional hot wash with biological washing powder (not liquid).

4.0 out of 5 stars Vibrant, good for small wrists, 20 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a different shade of green than the product picture but it's still very bright green. Has a light button and it's easy to set. The strap has plenty of holes for even the smallest wrists and the watch is light. It has 12 or 24 hour clock and an easy to read display with the day, date and time!! It has a stainless steel back. The fastening is grey and might have looked a little better in green but it's not very noticeable as it is on the underside of your wrist. I think it is still a man-sized watch though and it would be great if the range came in a smaller size and some more colours such as dark purple or teal. It's quite unisex.
