I purchased this as a present for a friend. It is just as it is described, including the colour and size. Bigger than what my friend needed but she loves it nonetheless. She is a super feminine girl so I knew she would appreciate the hand bag style of this Bible cover and she did!
It may just be my metabolism or my genes but I followed this to the T while also training in hill running and all I did was pile weight on! I stayed on it for a few months and gave up. It took me the same amount of time to lose the weight. A good diet and regular exercise is definitely the way for me.
