Kipling Women's Alenya Shoulder Bag K10623C21 Blac&hellip Kipling
5.0 out of 5 stars The ideal work bag., 31 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Every woman who is hooked on a certain TV shopping channel will I'm sure already be aware of Kipling's unique lightweight, washable yet sturdy and practical bags. This one is no exception, kitted out as it is with all the usual compartments and the great clasp for attaching one's keys. Yet, I was still surprised by the size of this one. It is large enough to carry one's I-pad, notes, lunch, umbrella, make-up, etc etc etc!!! As such it is the ideal work bag. I'm sure many a young student starting university or college would love this bag, but it would also suit the older professional woman. I can quite imagine a barrister striding into court with it, or a PA taking it to the office. The… Read more
BISSELL Vac & Steam Cleaner, 1500 Watt, Red by Bissell
5.0 out of 5 stars At Last!!!, 28 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What stops most of us washing our floor as often as we should? It is knowing that before we start we will either have to vacuum or sweep. Also we realise how long our floor is going to take to dry.

I first tried it out with the soft pad on two small bathrooms. The whole process took under 15 minutes and the results were magnificent. Not a stray hair in sight and a floor that was merely slightly damp and which dried completely in under 20 minutes. And, unlike other steam cleaners I have used in the past, the rooms… Read more
Cut the Carbs: 100 Recipes to Help You Ditch White&hellip by Tori Haschka

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Let's be clear here. What Ms Haschka calls 'white carbs' are white bread, white pasta, white rice, and potatoes (colour unspecified). These are to be abandoned in favour of 'smart carbs' consisting of quinoa, chia seeds, linseed, chickpea flour, rice malt syrup, and apple cider vinegar. On our new diet we will find ourselves eating a lot of pulses which, Ms Haschka tells us, will make us fart a lot. We can alleviate this by adding cumin and other spices to our food. Ms Haschka happened upon this diet after having suffered a bout of food poisoning. She discovered her new diet made her feel better. Despite the hilariously garbled theory, the recipes in the book are very good indeed, and they… Read more
