Goodly and Grave in A Bad Case of Kidnap (Goodly and Grave, Book 1)
Goodly and Grave in A Bad Case of Kidnap (Goodly and Grave, Book 1)
by Justine Windsor
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars We were totally gripped by this story of magic, plot twists and missing children, 24 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Wow - we were utterly gripped reading this book over the last few weeks at bedtime. There are so many unusual plot twists and turns and you keep having to recalibrate your thoughts and assumptions as you uncover something else new.

Lucy is comes across a magical card, which allows her to cheat at cards and win money to help to support herself and her parents (who up until this point lost a lot of money in gambling dens) but that it just the beginning of the adventure. Coming across someone else using magic at cards leads to unexpected results - so that Lucy finds herself at Grave Hall, home of Lord Grave and his unusual staff and surprises around the house. A bearded male cook called Mrs Crawley, a zoo-like wildlife park including animals who seem to act strangely and reports of lots of missing children - Lucy wants to make her way back to her family, but she also wants to help find out what happened to the missing children and help to get them home if she can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small but sturdy baking tray, 23 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Wow - the weight of this tray tells you a huge amount about it. Unlike many standard baking trays, which are light and therefore easily warp, this one is surprisingly weighty for its size. The fact that they aren't scrimping on materials in making this tray, makes me think that it will last a good deal longer than a cheaper baking tray. There is, I have found, a false economy in buying cheap baking trays as their coating soon gives up the ghost and they often get scratched and warped within months. This tray feels sturdy and with a bit of TLC should last for years rather than months. I like the fact that there are multiple sizes available - this is a medium, which for me is a fairly small standard baking tray, but very useful.


Aurora World 15643 10-Inch "Pixie Unicorno" Plush Toy
Aurora World 15643 10-Inch "Pixie Unicorno" Plush Toy

5.0 out of 5 stars Flew straight into my daughter's heart!, 23 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This gorgeous 10-inch unicorn has flown straight into my unicorn-mad daughter's heart. It is bright and colourful, with shiny multicoloured hooves and the colours remind me rather of Rainbow Dash, but with more of an edge than any my little pony!

This is a great size for cuddling and the super soft plush material means that your little one will just want to cuddle and stroke her all of the time! I love this range and have my eye on the Bowie inspired Unicorno for a birthday present for my daughter!

We have a number of other Aurora World toys - they are all great quality and never fail to go down a treat. If you want a smaller version of this toy, then rather like beanie boos, you can get more than one size. The 8 inch version looks identical Aurora World 15653 8-Inch "Pixie Unicorno" Plush Toy and is about half the price at the time of writing - but those extra inches add some valuable cuddling area!


Minecraft Guide to Exploration: An official Minecraft book from Mojang
Minecraft Guide to Exploration: An official Minecraft book from Mojang
by Mojang AB
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide to Minecraft exploration, 20 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With two keen Minecraft players in the house (my 9 and 10 year old daughters) I had a feeling that this would be a hit!

The girls have already read most of the official Mojang guides, but area always keen to see if there is anything new to learn and although most of the contents of this book were familiar to them, they did pick up some new information They liked the section with the guide to mining ores particularly, but both read the book cover to cover. There are lots of pictures and it is easy to dip in and out of as well.

The book is divided into three parts: Minecraft Landscape, Mobs and lastly Survival. Minecraft landscape is split into two subsections: Biomes and Naturally-Generated Structures. In Mobs, you look at Passive, Neutral and Hostile Mobs in turn. The last part has the most sub-sections - First Day, Second Day, Health and Food, Setting up your own Farm, Mining, Combat, Upgrade your Shelter, Navigating and Final Words.

This is a great book for anyone new to Minecraft or trying to get to grips with some of the foundations - but established fans will love it because they love Minecraft!


BIC 4 Colour Designed for You Ball Pen - Assorted (Pack of 1)
BIC 4 Colour Designed for You Ball Pen - Assorted (Pack of 1)
Price: £4.00

5.0 out of 5 stars New twist on an old and practical classic!, 19 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This brings back such fond memories of the first time I got a 4 colour bic pen as a child. I remember using it all of the time and always had one in my pencil case right up until and including university.

Now I work in a school and having one of these pens again is such a joy - the power of the colour change in a simple click - 4 pens in one, without being overly bulky. And this one has a twist - a special design instead of the traditional blue. The design I have is the leopard print and it is fun and eye-catching and it's not going to get mixed up with anyone else's pen!


Aurora World 15639 9-Inch "Donutella" Plush Toy
Aurora World 15639 9-Inch "Donutella" Plush Toy
Price: £10.66

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet mix of doll, teddy and a bag of sprinkle-covered doughnuts, 18 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My younger daughter is 9 years old and loves doughnuts and loves soft toys and collects beanie boos and other cute plush toys. My daughter already had two other Aurora World toys, one Unicorno and one Mermicorno (mermaid-unicorn cross) and loves these, so was pleased to have a new friend to join in her games and cuddle up to at night.

The toy is like someone has mixed together a doll, a teddy and a load of sprinkle-covered doughnuts and little Donutella (or Nutella as my daughter has nicknamed her) is really cute. I've dropped a star because you can't move her arms that much with the doughnut around her middle and that isn't fixed absolutely fast, so you feel like it should be removable, but it isn't!

It is a 9-inch toy and so comparable in price to a 10 inch beanie boo - so reasonable and my daughter is already keen to get another one from the same set!


Real Techniques Lip Colour and Blur Brush
Real Techniques Lip Colour and Blur Brush
Price: £7.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice set of lip brushes - would be better with full lids, 15 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really like these Real Techniques lip brushes. The set consists of a standard lip brush and a lip blur brush. I have been using lip brushes for a number of years, but have never tried a lip blur brush before.

I use a lip liner usually and then fill in my lips with a brush rather like the one included in this set. The lip brush allows me to apply my lipstick colour more precisely and to build up the colour rather than smearing it on. The blur brush allows you to get a more airbrushed look - softening the colour around the edges or indeed over the whole lip, giving a much more natural look.

I don't like the lid - I would like it to have an end, rather than being a cylinder of plastic - but at least it does have something to protect the brush from being smashed up in my makeup bag.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leaves my skin soft, clean and not taut and uncomfortable - shame about the increased photosensitivity though, 14 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Using this facial cleaner, my face definitely feels cleaner and softer. Unlike many other facial cleaners, this doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and uncomfortable. This would normally mean that I love this cleanser, but it does bother me that this heightens photosensitivity - which when you have pale freckled skin like me, is somewhat concerning. As long as I am wearing cream with a decent spf, hopefully this will counteract this effect, but it isn't ideal.

I can't yet determine whether or not this is going to have a long-lasting effect on my pore, but if it is noticeable, then I will update my review.


Ecotools Sheer Finish Blush Brush
Ecotools Sheer Finish Blush Brush
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Allows you to get a great, soft blended look - I love Ecotools brushes, 14 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is far and above my favourite blusher brush. The Ecotools Sheer Finish blush brush has duo fibres which means you can apply a light dusting of blush for a more natural look or you can gradually build it up and it gives a really soft, blended look.
The brush is so, so soft - it's really lovely to use. I have 6 other ecotools brushes and they are all such good quality and knowing that a brush is an ecotools brush means that you know that it is environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet card for someone who isn't your Father, but does everything a Father should, 13 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you need a card like this to send to a Father figure, who isn't actually your Dad, then this is a sweet version - it would work well in a number of situations, but if anything it might just slightly over-labour the point that the person you are sending it to is not your Father - so it's worth judging whether this is how you want to express your sentiments. I am actually sending mine to my step-father, who has been my step-father for 25 years, but who hates that term - and who knows very much how much I love him, just like I love my real Dad. It's hard to find a card that says exactly what you want and I'm not sure whether this quite hits the mark - I might personally have taken out the hugging part of the card as that's not quite characteristic of our relationship - the love is definitely right.

The front of the card says: You are just like a daddy.... because you hug me, you care, you look after me - and you love me so much....
then on the inside it says: that's why I want you to know that no matter how big I grow..... .....I'll always love you too because you're just like a daddy to me. Happy Father's day xxx
