5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, 28 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Afterwards (Paperback)
Brilliant book. Couldn't put it down, quite different from allot of crime books.

Very sad and moving at times, really got me thinking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, read it in two days, 28 Aug. 2011
I love crime thrillers, but they can get a bit repetitive if you read allot of them. This book was quite different to any I've read before.

I couldn't put it down. Finished it in two days.

Definately recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most comfortable flip flops ever, fit perfectly, 28 Aug. 2011
I am 28, and have been searching for a comfortable pair of flip flops for as long as I can remember. All the different ones I have tried previously have cut my feet somewhere.

These flip flops are very comfortable, and even after hours walking, they didn't rub or blister anywhere.

I am a size 5, with fairly wide feet, they fit perfectly. I think they are a really normal fit...I tried a 4 in the shop (as they didn't have a 5), and they were OK, just a little short....which is normal. The 5 is fine. I think perhaps the people having trouble with the fit didn't buy the UK sizes? In the shop before the lady helped me, I was trying on the wrong size (7 or something....not sure what the sizes are).

Now I have found these flip flops, I won't be wearing anything else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good cleanser, 11 April 2011
This is a very good cleanser. The best part is that it takes off makeup (waterproof mascaara), without stinging eyes, or having to scrub! It smells great and leaves skin soft.

I have greasy skin, that also gets dry and flakey. The cleanser is a light creamy consistency which I remove with s face cloth. It doesn't dry skin, and feels like is strong enough to remove grime.

I wouldn't say this cleanser had corrected by blemish skin....but those of you out there who have unperfect skin probably aren't so naive to think a cleanser will fix all problems! It certainly hasn't got any worse.


Time Out Country Walks Near London Vol 2: v. 2 (Time Out Guides)
Time Out Country Walks Near London Vol 2: v. 2 (Time Out Guides)
by Time Out Guides Ltd
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 17 Feb. 2010
I've been on a few of the walks in the book. I like how it gives you total travel time there and back from London - very useful.

The walks I've done so far have been lovely.

Only thing I would say is - on their website, they have walks which are 'best for autumn' 'best for coastal views' 'best for pubs' etc. They don't have this in the book, and that would be very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works, 17 Feb. 2010
The mozzys love me, they really do. I used this traveling in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam and found it very effective. If the mozzys love you like they love me, if you miss a bit or don't put it on all over every night, they will still bite.

I did get some bites which I think were predominately sand flies, but all in all very happy with the product.

It's a bit greasy - but all strong insect repellents are. I didn't find it any more smelly and choking than the 50% deet versions I have used before (Boots) etc.

Recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely boots - the right size, 17 Feb. 2010
I have just received my boots, quicker than expected. They arrived in perfect condition nicely boxed.

After reading other reviews, I was weary of the size. I am a size 5 with wide feet. I got a size 5, and they fit perfectly. They are quite roomy around the toes, so it's good for wide feet - but I didn't feel they were too long or short. They fit me beautifully and are nice and snug to the leg.

They are of good quality, have a think sole, and nice fur lining which doesn't appear to be too thick.

I've bought some waterproof spray and I'm going to coat in a few layers before I venture out in them - perhaps I will update my review then as one thing I am looking for is warm and dry boots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 11 Oct. 2009
I have fairly thick, half curly dyed hair. When I recently had blonde highlights redone, my hair really suffered. When I washed it, it was matted from the roots. A small blob of Thermique easily spreads throughout my hair, and it detangles instatntly. The product is not at all heavy or greasy, it feel silky - I don't even feel the need to wash my hands afterwards, as it seems to make them soft too!

My hair looks shiny and soft. I havent been using it for long, so I can't comment on long term damage prevention, but I've never used a product which is as effective at detangling and leaving hair manageable.
