Philips GC4511/20 Azur Performer Steam Iron with 1&hellip by Philips
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This iron is very comfortable to use and seems to glide effortlessly across the fabrics. It certainly heats up quickly and I like the sharp point which makes it easy to get into those difficult creases.

AmazonBasics 7-Inch Black Sleeve for Nexus 7 / Kin&hellip by AmazonBasics
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This case is just right for my Samsung Galaxy tab 3 - 7 inch tablet. It's very well made of stong fabric with a good sturdy zip. It is cushioned inside so that the tablet fits nice and snug. I felt that if I were to drop it, it would not be harmed in any way. Perfect for taking away too.
