Craghoppers Men's Bear Grylls Core Fluffy Jacket - Black Pepper/Black, Large
Craghoppers Men's Bear Grylls Core Fluffy Jacket - Black Pepper/Black, Large
Price: £29.47

4.0 out of 5 stars Craghoppers BG fluffy jacket..., 29 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was expecting a heavier fluffy fleece like the Patagonia RetroX jacket but this is quite thin and light. No worries though as it's quite comfy for spring/summer autumn wear but it's not suitable as a winter walking jacket. For those who go cragging then it will be useful as a belay jacket when it turns chilly or of course for just going down the pub.I've been wearing it quite a bit on the local beach when I'm walking the dog.


Salomon Eskape Aero Trail Walking Shoes - SS15 - 8.5

3.0 out of 5 stars Salomon's.weird sizing!, 29 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I take an 8 and tried some on in an outdoor shop where I found they were very small. I tried an 8.5 and these seemed OK. After ordering online I found that even the 8.5 were a tad too snug and considered sending them back in exchange for a nine. Can't understand why an reputable outdoor footwear manufacturer can be a whole size out in construction? I've since read online that Salomon's indeed make small sizes....why???
I'm wearing them and hoping they'll wear in and stretch a bit but I was hoping to wear them on a long distance walk but I don't think they'll ever be that comfortable. I don't think I'll buy Salomon's again,especially for long distances.


How to Write Your Best Story Ever!
How to Write Your Best Story Ever!
by Christopher Edge
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars How to write your best story ever!, 29 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Obtained for my granddaughter. Christopher Ed'es 'How to write the best story ever' is aimed at older primary school and younger secondary school kids.Story writing is an essential part of the human condition and it begins in childhood where children are open to ideas and relationships which span reality. It is this openness to new ideas no matter how surreal which makes so many children's imaginative stories so compelling.
Here the author pushes at an open door with a series of ideas, devices and suggestions which will hopefully take that flight of imagination one step further.


WD-40 400ml Specialist Motorbike Chain Lube
WD-40 400ml Specialist Motorbike Chain Lube
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars WD-40 Motorbike lube spray., 29 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Advertised as 'Specialist motorbike chain lube' I obtained this slightly higher viscous oil from WD-40 for lubricating garden equipment. With a big garden to tend, I find it useful for lucubrating things like lawn mower blades.spindles, strimmer heads and hedge cutting blades which can get a bit rusty over winter. As with all WD-40 products, it sprays easily without clogging and the large can should last quite a while. A very useful product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Murad Environmental Shield. Because you're worth it?????, 21 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Obtained for my partner who generally has dry skin and uses moisturizing cream. However, I'm not sure how the manufacturer can justify £51+ for a tiny, 1.7 fl oz tube of cream???? As for the product, it goes on fine and is quickly absorbed into the skin. It's not unpleasant in its smell and doesn't leave a sticky residue on the skin. I'm not sure how you can ascertain if it's actually achieving anything that a two quid tube of moisturizing cream from Superdrug wouldn't achieve though? Perhaps if you had a face like Michael Gambon and woke up looking like Aiden Turner then I might believe it! Until then, I shall carefully observe and see if my partner becomes unrecognizably youthful and attractive in the next few weeks? I


Purina ONE My Dog Is Adult Beef & Rice Dry Dog Food 800g (Pack of 4)
Purina ONE My Dog Is Adult Beef & Rice Dry Dog Food 800g (Pack of 4)
Price: £13.96

4.0 out of 5 stars Purina ONE My Dog feed, 21 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Purina is part of the huge US Nestle empire and one of the world's biggest pet food manufacturers. I've had plenty of their products before but never this particular feed.It's pretty typical in its appearance to normal dried feeds and at £13+ for 4 small 800g bags it's not cheap. Then again, as its produced specifically for small dogs then they won't be wolfing it down! As with all these dog feeds, it's hard to ascertain its qualities given that most dogs in my experience anyway, will generally scoff what's put in front of them and unless they suffer some adverse reaction then you have to trust in what the manufacturers claim. So far so good.


Tefal Hard Anodised Frying Pan Set - Grey, 5-Piece
Tefal Hard Anodised Frying Pan Set - Grey, 5-Piece
Price: £69.67

4.0 out of 5 stars Tefal budget pan set, 19 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These Tefal non stick pans are excellent value for money. However,given that you can pay more almost double for a single Le Creuset pan then you can guess that they're not going to last a lifetime. They are very light and fine for everyday use. The handles are comfortable and the glass lids are snug fitting. It's just that they lack that certain kitchen cachet that the aforementioned range of cookware possesses in spades and they feel functional rather than qualitative and aesthetically pleasing.
A good buy I would suggest for a student moving into accommodation or a young couple/family starting out in a new home on a limited budget. At around seventy pounds for five pans covering most hob cooking requirements they represent a pretty good deal really and you can put the cast iron cookware on the back burner for now!


Philips GC4520/30 Azur Performer Steam Iron - 190g Steam Boost, 2600 Watt
Philips GC4520/30 Azur Performer Steam Iron - 190g Steam Boost, 2600 Watt
Price: £62.30

4.0 out of 5 stars Phillips Azur Steam Iron, 18 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As Steam Iron's go it's pretty good. Like the manufacturer claims, it heats up quite fast, is light in the hand and irons as it should. It's certainly more practical than some of those modern monstrosities than sit on a sort of docking station and take up half the kitchen!
That's really all one can say about this nifty little Phillips iron. It does the bizz!


The Lure of Technocracy
The Lure of Technocracy
by Jürgen Habermas
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Jurgen Habermases' The Lure Of Technocracy, 15 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
German academic, Jurgen Habermas perhaps not surprisingly given his nationality, offers his personal pan European over-view of the European State we're in, and dissects the complex national dynamics both under-pinning and undermining the current structure. Given the structure of what is an over-arching bureaucratic leviathan, Habermas questions the political and legal frameworks which serve vastly divergent nations like his home state and nation states like Greece, but see solutions in more integration not a loosening on the ties that bind.
You don't have to be Nigel Farage to take issue with this federal approach and given the pressure the EU is under to reform and democratize its structure and institutions, you have to wonder if the vision Habermas sees is out of kilter with ordinary Europeans; be they Romanians, Greeks, Britons or even the heavily integrated German people themselves?

Total Facility Management
by Brian Atkin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £38.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Total Facility Management, 12 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Previous editions of Brian Atkin's Total Facilities Management have been well received and complimented for the clarity, writing style and sense of purpose. The Third Edition in the series continues in that tradition and provides a useful work which bridges the area between theory of facilities management and its practice. The book raises important issues which those in the profession will find thought provoking and useful as they move on to a professional strategy. TFM highlights the link between facilities management practice and practical objectives which are achievable and which resonate with those within the profession.
