2.0 out of 5 stars really small, 20 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is really pretty,but very very small and after I eventually got it in place (it took around 45 mins) the star didn't stay in place securely and fell out / I have since replaced with a different item


Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics: A Philosophy for Achieving a Radiant Mind and Fabulous Body
Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics: A Philosophy for Achieving a Radiant Mind and Fabulous Body
by Jessica Porter
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.99

4.0 out of 5 stars good for the back story of this way of eating, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this book really does look into the philosophy of macrobiotics with a lot of back ground/history and thought as to why this way of eating works
there aren't any pictures that go with the recipes so doesn't make you instantly want to dive in and try them out
but it is worth a read,even just to gain another perspective
it tells you why you should eat certain foods and why you shouldn't eat others which actually makes sense in anyone's diet
i would say this book is good for someone who wants to really delve into the reasons behind the diet,for recipes I would try somewhere else

5.0 out of 5 stars a brilliant beginner book or for those wanting recipes that are easy, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
so this book is more me!
I have 'the macrobiotic path to total health' too,but as a beginner this is so much more accessible for me
it has some really good detailed pictures and some really good recipes that go with it
this book is a good start and introduction to macrobiotics and seems to really be for the modern-day with up to date recipes that seem really easy to put together,this book has changed my mind about this way of eating and is making me consider changing from Atkins to this,the potato and carrot soup looks awesome!

4.0 out of 5 stars a must for devotes, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Um,well what can I say really
there is just so much information in this book,it's a good inch and a bit thick and pretty much lists every illness or ones you've never even thought of.
there are suggestions to help clear any ailment and also things so that the illnesses (in theory) wouldn't occur
basically this is a good book for anyone interested in macrobiotic eating, I am just looking into the idea to potentially use after I have lost weight using Atkins,so really don't have a clue and a total beginner
so this book is not for me really,at the moment,think I'm too much of a beginner but that doesn't mean it's not a good book,because for serious devotes this is a must have
I will use some things like the potato plaster and the ginger bath but i won't be changing my eating patterns just yet

5.0 out of 5 stars truely an awesome yoga way of life book!, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is an awesome book,true yoga living at its best!
there are recipes in here using good natural products,yoga poses and also the authors life story and feeling towards the practice,it makes you want to get straight on your mat!
the poses are very well thought out with really detailed descriptions photographs and also variations
the other 'action' photos that are on nearly every page have such a positive feel,in fact the whole book just has such a positive vibe
there are some really beautiful affirmations towards the end of each
in all this book is worth getting for anybody interested in yoga,rachel even talks about types of mats so if you are a beginner then don't be put off thinking you need to know what you are doing,this explains so so much and I wish I had read something like this when I started my yoga journey over 15 years ago,I probably would have been less off and more on
it is a beautiful book,worth a read!

5.0 out of 5 stars buy this book!!!!!is a must for Atkins of all phases too!!!, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Low-Carb Gourmet (Paperback)
this really is the best low carb recipe book I own,even better than the actual Atkins ones that I have a few of.
it has recipes for snacks,starters mains and desserts,there's also little boxes full of extra quick noted recipes so there are a lot of variations here
I have looked through and have found (unless I have missed some pages) that all recipes seem to be under 10 grams of carbs which is amazing!
the most is lemon curd but it only gives carb count of the whole recipe rather than portion
it even shows you how to make lasagne using an egg mixture as the pasta sheets!
now iv tried two recipes this weekend,the egg and sausage muffins (tastes just like the egg and sausage mcmuffins from McDonald's!) and the chicken with bacon cream and thyme (this is ridiculously easy,as all recipes seem to be,and tastes amazing!!!) - the only problem is with the recipe that as it needs a frying pan that is oven proof (pampered chef ones are,but I'm sure so are others) I forgot the handle would be crazy hot do have had my hand in a bandage for two days so far with a lovely print from the pan handle!)
there are a good twenty or so recipes I want to try (especially the brownies!) that are pretty easy,the others that will need a bit more thought I will try when I have a bit more time in the evenings,but don't let that put you off this book
it is amazing for users of the Atkins diet (I have lost another 2lbs this weekend using this) and I would imagine for diabetics
all the recipes have easily sourced ingredients in UK supermarkets where a lot of other low carb recipe books are USA orientated
buy this book,you really won't be sorry

3.0 out of 5 stars better for hair of shoulder length and longer, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not 100% sure about this yet.i have just below shoulder length hair and find that it does work,but one side seems to curl and the other seems to stick out l,I think this is more to do with me and my technique than the band,so I will continue to try this out,although maybe only when I know I am going out the next day as I did have neck ache for two days after,but falling asleep wasn't a problem - it really does have to be used with damp hair,I tried without and it just didn't work,also it definitely is best with freshly washed hair,I think this is because the roots have some volume still the next day,on day old hair it can have less volume which then makes the curls look less polished- as my hair is shorter than advised (although aurora did say it would work on my hair when I posted a link to my friends on Facebook) it does curl the front,however because of the application and where it sits on the head the back doesn't seem to curl,I'm not sure of a way around this,but will check on YouTube,there are quite a lot of posted videos of users.
I would recommend this for people with longer than shoulder length hair,for those that want to ditch the straighteners/curling irons,and those that have less time in the mornings (it quite literally takes less than 3mins to wrap the hair),I obviously need to find a better way to wrap my hair,but don't let that put you off

5.0 out of 5 stars such an amazing mat,so beautiful!, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is gorgeous!i thought it would feel like a micro fibre towel but it's actually got a velvety texture and feels amazing under the hands. I do agree that this is more ideal for hot yoga (like it describes) but spraying water lightly on the mat really does work for those that participate in other types of yoga,I find that this makes me more stable than on my so-called sticky yoga mat so I use this over the top - it is also easy to clean,which I find my yoga mat not so easy - the chevron colours feel uplifting and help with hand and feet placements -I can't wait to get to class now I have this

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful grey with hint of purple!, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is just the colour I was after!its a grey block colour (no shimmer) with a purple hint but really is great as a nude. I however did put on 3-4 coats but it was really easy to do and self levelled which is exactly what is needed.
I am a week in and no chips or breaks so far (I use with all bluesky products) so am really pleased,this will be my go to colour
