5.0 out of 5 stars Bake off..., 5 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
"He leaned forward and kissed me again, long and sweet. "You know that I want to be with you too."
And I did. He'd shown me, through cake, through every moment we spent together and every lie he never told me - even when he told them to everyone else. Will Macintyre wanted to be with me - just me. And I felt like the luckiest girl in the world."

After the death of her father, Lottie's mother has become a hoarder. So Lottie pushes her friends away.
The school principal tells her to involving herself in school activities, so she joins-the school bake club. (She loved baking with her father.)

Lottie is a good central character. Not perfect.

Loves baking, makes friends and a normal 'misunderstood' teenager.

Really good YA fiction.

Inspiring, contemporary and heart-warming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curls just wanna have fun., 5 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
WELL WELL WELL
==============
It looks like it's ceramic but it says it's a tourmaline surface. What's that? Hmmnnn I had no idea too. According to wiki it's a stone. (So similar to ceramic)

CURLS CURLS CURLS
=================
Plugged in and ready to almost instantly. (OK maybe a minute or so) And away we go.

Perfect curls. Not just curls, but perfect curls.

It comes with a glove. Why a glove, well if you remember the old style curling tongs, you would need to wrap the hair around. Clamp, wait and push the stray hairs in the clamp.

This type, you simple wrap the hair around with the aid of the glove (So. You. Don't. Get. Burned.)

GOLDILOCKS
==========
After the first session I could have entered the pro competition. Tight curls, loose curls. Voilà!

VARIETY
=======
I do love the variety of waves you can get with the barrel size, and on top of that it's quick. 10 mins from start to finish.

TIP
===
If you're in a rush. (I'm always in a rush. I don't like to get anywhere early) You can grab a random section of hair and wind it around. No careful selection to place in a clamp. It's more natural and looks fab.

SPRINGY BOUNCEY CURLS
=====================
I started with fantastic springy curls that relaxed over the day into natural looking waves. The longer your hair, the greater the pull on the curls. So if you have light shorter hair, the curls will last all day. If you have heavy long hair you may need some product to help.

FUN
===
Girls just want to have fun. And now the curls just wanna have fun.
Sorry I couldn't find any other way to get that in. I was quite impressed with myself and the slogan, "curls just wanna have fun.." but how do you get that into a review? you can't, you just have to be brash and plop it in. So there you go.

RECOMMENDED
===========
If you're after a well made curling wand this is certainly one that should be on your shortlist. Hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Pink Headphones, 5 July 2015
GOOD VALUE
==========
The headphones are a great value.
Smart, good sound and comfortable.

SOUND
=====
The Bass if full and deep. Not at all disappointing.They also get the highs. So a good all round sound.

They sound clear and warm.

CORD
====
The cord isn't huge. It's ideal if you want these for your ipod or phone. But if you want them to trail across the floor to a TV or something then the cord's quite short.

THE TEST
========
I tested these against a pair of Beats by Dr Dre.
These are an 1/8 of the price and I expected only one winner.

In terms of build they are quite similar. The Beats are better packaged. But both have a similar build. The Beats do win. But marginally.
In terms of sound. I prefer the Panasonic.
In terms of comfort. I prefer the Panasonic.
In terms of value. Hmmmn. I prefer this price range.

OVERALL
=======
A nice, comfortable set of headphones that look stylish, modern and the sound is impressive. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars JULY 2015 Superb, 5 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
WIDE RANGE
==========
It looks like this has been 'reissued' as I've had no issues at all, especially any issues that were mentioned in older reviews.

NO ISSUES ON SETUP
==================
No issue at all setting it up manually.

Here's what I did:
A Reset the extender,
B Connect the cable between computer and extender,
C Plug extender and wait for the solid light,
D Open browser and type 192.168.1.1,
E When a window opens up asking for a username and password: leave the User Name blank and enter "admin" in the Password field,
F Click Log In,
G Click on Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings,
H Click on the SSID for the wireless network that you want to connect,
I Enter password for your wireless network,
J Click on save settings and wait until the settings are updated,
K Unplug router and extender,
L Remove cable connecting extender & computer,
M Plug in the router and wait for it to come back online,
N When the router is back online plug in extender and wait for solid light.
O You are now ready to rumble!!!!

USE
===
I can now get a pretty strong signal in place where it was weak or non-existent. (Some room upstairs, the end of the garden.)

SMART LOOKING
=============
It doesn't look ugly. But neither does it look, "Wow"

GOOD VALUE
==========
I got the one with audio streaming. (An audio jack- you can simply plug a speaker in and place music from your iphone.) (To be honest, I've used this once as my speakers are bluetooth and portable too)

RECOMMENDED
===========
Yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why is this a GOOD mouse?, 1 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
OLD MOUSE
=========
I have been using a basic optical USB wired mouse for years. Every time I try a different one, they don't compare well and I go back to the wired version.

WIRELESS
========
This mouse feels and performs just as good as the wired mouse.
Movement- check
Responsiveness- check
Accurateness- check
Scroll wheel- check
Button click- check

BLUETOOTH
=========
No it uses a little (supplied nano transmitter) so it's not a bluetooth mouse.

PLUG AND PLAY
=============
Worked within seconds. (Windows 8.1)

BATTERIES
=========
Included. An AA. Lasts months normally. (I read somewhere 30 months- I'll update when it runs out)

LOOKS NICE
==========
It's comfortable and stylish too.

RANGE
=====
About 10 metres away.

OVERALL
=======
A reasonably priced little mouse. Looks nice. Works well. Recommended.

Price: £8.04

5.0 out of 5 stars A Few Things Every Good Moisuriser Should Have, 30 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
SUPER SKIN
==========
I do like a good moisturiser. One that's not too greasy but effective.
For example I love E45 E45 Dermatological Moisturising Lotion - 500 ml as it's a good solid moisturiser but find it a tad too greasy. Good though if you have rash or something.
I'm also a fan of the more expensive range. L'occitane - AFTER SHAVE BALM 75ML L'OCCITAN

GOOD FOR DRY SKIN
=================
This is really good for dry or sensitive skin. If other products cause havoc on your skin. maybe consider this one.

LIGHT
=====
This cream is very lightweight and absorbs quickly.
I noticed a difference on day one of use.

OVERALL
=======
If you have sensitive skin, need a light absorbent moisturiser this is one to consider.

5.0 out of 5 stars La Vie Vert, 29 Jun. 2015
Smart
====
Comfortable fit around the macbook air.

Stylish
=====
It looks quite nice.

Fluffy
====
It has a nice feel. I do think it'll be prone to getting dirty or getting fluffy balls.

Good magnetic clasp
================
Nice solid feel. the magnet is neither to string or too weak.

Nice Looking
==========
It's quite beautiful.Particularly with perfectly placed pieces of leather. It feels nice and looks nice.
The piece of leather at the bottom of the sleeve is soft leather that wraps around and is a little higher at the back. It is perfect for your hand.
The leather also makes the sleeve quite sturdy.

Recycle
======
The bulk of the material appears to be recycled fabric blended into felt. Hence the 'La vie vert.'

RECOMMENDED
=============
Yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good mid range toothbrush, 29 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I DO LIKE THE ORAL B RANGE
==========================
The whole Oral-B range of toothbrushes vary in price. This is a mid range one and I think it's simply fantastic.

Some of the range have additional features that you'll NEVER EVER use.

I like this one as it's fast enough, light enough and holds a charge for several days.

CHARGER
=======
It comes with the smaller, neater charging base. It's aimed at children and it colourful and appealing for that age group.

CLEAN TEETH
===========
I had squeaky clean teeth after two minutes using this toothbrush. I've also had the much more expensive Oral B toothbrushes and also tried the cheaper ones. This is much better than the cheaper ones. (They're a little slower) and the more expensive ones have a few more bells and whistles that you''ll never use. Overall this is ideal for most people. It's a really good routine for children to adopt: Brush for at least 2 minutes.

RECOMMENDED
===========
If you're after a reasonably priced electric toothbrush for children, this is certainly one to consider. Hope this was helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
HEELYS
======
Heelys are the brand of roller shoe that have a wheel embedded in each sole.

ADULTS
======
I wish. They are always in children's sizes.

JUST A ROLLER SHOE
==================
Nopes, you can can walk, run, or, by placing some weight to your heels, roll. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

STOPPING
========
Braking is achieved by lowering the back of the shoe so that sole makes contact with the ground.

BANNED
=======
As it's a form of skating they are banned in some schools, shopping centres and some councils (Yeovil).

INJURY
======
Not guaranteed, but you are likely to fall and get a graze or bruise. Some have had broken bones. To be fair there's a danger in everything. (crossing roads, riding a bike, using a pogo stick, playing conkers...) I think they're great and will take the chance.

RECOMMENDED
===========
Wheeeeeeeeeeee, whoooooooooosh, yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesss

5.0 out of 5 stars A Few Things Every Good Speaker Should Have, 28 Jun. 2015
GOOD
====
I needed a speaker that was wireless and this one was also waterproof which was an added bonus.

WELL PRESENTED
==============
The box is quite nice and well packaged.

NOT TOO BIG
===========
It's just under 9 CMs big. It's depth is under 5 CMs.

RUGGED
======
The outer body is made of a rubber. No rain, sleet, snow will penetrate this robust little beast.

SETUP
=====
Takes seconds to setup. Hold the search... voila paired. My iphne paired instantly.

SOUND
=====
For a little speaker it packs a punch. So much from so little. (THIS HAS NEVER BEEN SAID TO ME)

BOOM
====
It can fill a medium sized room full of sound. It's simply amazing the sound quality and level out of something so tiny.

LIGHT
=====
It's light and so very portable. Battery life was about 5 hours.

TELEPHONE CALLS
===============
It says you can have a 'conference type call' with the inbuilt mic. Hmmmm. I didn't think it was that good. I'd give this a miss.

OVERALL
=======
Good sound, good value and if you need a portable speaker this is one to consider. If you need to make calls too-look elsewhere.
Recommended.
