Igenix 2-Speed Hand Blender, 200 Watt, White
Igenix 2-Speed Hand Blender, 200 Watt, White
Price: £14.98

5.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to give it a good workout so I was chopping down vegetables for soup, 2 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This hand blender looks stylish straight out of the box. Using it is simple, you merely plug and and press one of the two buttons for a slower or faster speed. Whilst your finger is on the button the motor is on. Take your finger off and it stops. It couldn't be more simple. I wanted to give it a good workout so I was chopping down vegetables for soup. These were uncooked, carrots, potatoes and turnip which had been chopped up fairly small. It coped extremely well and hoped them up finely and almost into a paste ready to go in the soup. This is probably the hardest thing I threw at it and it coped very well. The instructions say not to use for more than a minute and then leave for 10 minutes. I used it for a couple of minutes , although using a pulse, on/off effect and ti coped fine. I didn't want to try it for too long though in case I burnt out the motor on first use. As I say this is probably the hardest thing I will do with the blender so I am sure it will cope brilliantly with anything else I expect to do. Would definitely recommend.


AmiGami Cat Figure

Price: £6.02

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Craft Kit, 26 Feb. 2015
This review is from: AmiGami Cat Figure (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is another great product from the AmiGami stable, or litter as it's a cat. The box contains a sturdy cat which is, inexplicably, pink. However,Mathis means it is bright and looks cheerful. The box comes with a number of accessories to decorate and complete the figure. All the accessories are reusable and this means they can be changed around to make a number of different permutations. A Greta little kit which will last longer than the average craft kit.,


BiC Cristal Fun Ball Pen - Purple (Box of 20)
BiC Cristal Fun Ball Pen - Purple (Box of 20)
Price: £8.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic once it gets going, 24 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I first opened the box the pens look just like normal bic ballpoints. You should be able to uncap and you're good to go. However, each pen seems to have a wax coating over the end. This means you have to rub it off on the paper. Once this is done and the ink flows you realise what a fabulous pen this is. I cannot describe how smoothly it writes. It is a joy and so different from the average ball pen. It gives a broad effect to your writing which looks great. If you had several differnt colours of these they could be used to good effect for drawing. Once you get the ink going this is a great pen. I would highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly Gripping, 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the first book I have read by Sarah Hilary and it certainly won't be the last. This book was gripping and I could not put it down. Two young boys are found dead in a bunker. They have been there for five years. DI Marnie Rome finds herself looking for a killer several years after the event. Marnie is a good character but is haunted by something which happened in the past. There are a lot of very strange characters in this book and many tortured souls. The way in which the characters lives, and past, interweave is expertly done. The reson I have given this book 4 instead of five stars is because I found it a bit depressing. Every character seemed to have issues and it would have been nice to have a few 'normal' characters just to lighten the mood slightly. Otherwise a very well written book with a fast paced plot and plenty to keep you reading long past bed time.


Bones Never Lie: (Temperance Brennan 17)
Bones Never Lie: (Temperance Brennan 17)
Price: £9.10

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read, 21 Feb. 2015
In this book Tempe Brennan is back in her most puzzling case yet. Two unsolved murders if young girls in 2007 and 2009 are similar to murders carried out by a killer from previous cases in Canada. The killer's DNA is also found on the dead girls. There is one slight problem. The killer, Anique Pomerlau is dead. Or is she? Tempe travels to Canada, accompanied once more by Andrew Ryan to work out what's going on. The action moves between Charlotte and Canada and both places come across well. It is a surprise to meet Ryan once again as he had dropped out of the picture in a previous book. Despite being haunted by the death of his daughter he agrees to help Tempe solve the case. Overall the book is good. I enjoyed the storyline and there was plenty to keep me reading. So why have I given this four stars, rather than five. I don't think it has the on the edge of your seat tension that came across clearly in earlier books. The tension ratchets up at the end but until then the book coasts along. I would recommend the book overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is another great product in the AmiGami range, 20 Feb. 2015
This review is from: AmiGami Bird Figure (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is another great product in the AmiGami range. It comes with a surdy plastic bird and a number of different accessories, such as reusable stickers, paper parts and jewel pins. It also has a paper curling tool. What sets this kit part form your average craft kit is that everything can be reused. This means it is never really finished. It is a lot of fun and good value for money. Age range 6 - 10

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Cover, 18 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
From the minute you open the box this case looks, and feels, high quality. Although it is not leather you would be hard pushed to tell the difference. It is professional and the grey strip gives an even more luxurious look and feel. It fits both iPad Air 2 and iPad Air snuggly and holds it firm. The magnets hold the case secure and also serve to operate the sleep wake function. The folds work well and hold the case securely in several different angles. This case is more expensive out there but still almost half the price of the Apple Version. It looks just as nice, if not better, than it's apple counterpart. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending this product. It is worth every single penny you will pay.


No Other Choice: The Naomi Chronicles
No Other Choice: The Naomi Chronicles
Price: £3.23

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Inspirational Fiction, 17 Feb. 2015
In the first book No Other Choice tells the story of Naomi who finds herself stranded in America and is rescued and taken home by a kindly older woman. She spends her time helping the woman do good works. As she becomes an adult the woman dies and leaves Naomi her estate and her responsibilities. However, Naomi is harbouring a secret that she hides from everyone including her husband.

It is difficult to review this book without giving too much away. This is a faith filled book and that comes through strongly. The spiritual aspect is excellent and very well developed. The characters get under your skin and you find yourself caring about them intensely. I felt I knew them intimately. The story drew me in and kept me reading. Initially the way it was written seems a little stilted to me. However I soon realised that this was a part of the culture and completely in keeping with the way these people would speak. I soon found myself engrossed in the story and wanted to know what happens next. This is an excellent book but you should know this is not a complete story. You have to read book 2 in order to get the whole story and the whole picture.


AmazonBasics 16-Piece Cafe Stripe Dinnerware Set, Service for 4, Black
AmazonBasics 16-Piece Cafe Stripe Dinnerware Set, Service for 4, Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks Elegant, 16 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This crockery looks good out of the box. The black stripe design gives it a subtle elegance which means it would be good for everyday use or for a meal with guests. So far, it has stood up to use well and the glaze has not cracked. It has been used in both a microwave and a dishwasher with no problems. Although not immediately apparent, there are some areas of unevenness on some of the pieces. This means they are slightly less well made or high quality than they could have been. However, for a basic set, this is an excellent dinner service which I would recommend

The New Rules of Sales and Service: How to Use Agile Selling, Real-Time Customer Engagement, Big Data, Content, and Storytelling to Grow Your Business
by David Meerman Scott
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and Very Informative, 14 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not just a how to book but an in depth look at the way markets are changing and the way in which sales and service is changing in response. It is detailed and interesting and uses case studies to good effect. The writer has a lot of experience in sales and marketing and this shows. The case studies are excellent and cover most areas of the market. There is something for everyone in here. There is a lot of sound advice and I am sure most people whoa re engaged in marketing and selling a product would get something from it. I certainly intend to use some of the advice in my own business. It is not a book to dip into, but one to read cover to cover. It is also worth taking notes on the ways in which you could apply the advice to your won business. Overall an excellent book which I would highly recommend.
