5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, excellent product., 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am delighted with this heater, arrived promptly very well packaged, easy assembly of the base to body of heater. With a choice of four settings it really does give instant warmth. It seems to be very economical to use and I originally thought I would use as a back up to my central heating when using the orangery, the warmth is so strong and instant it is enough on its own. I am so pleased as it is looks good, oscillates and with four settings at under £35.00 I really am happy to recommend, small and compact it is so easy to transport from room to room, I love it in fact I just might get another. Ten out of ten.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant accomplished novel that I absolutely recommend, 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I first met Marnie Rome in Sarah Hilary's first novel "someone else's skin" which was a haunting and exceptional debut novel.

This is a exceptionally well written novel and opens with the last days of two young boys - brothers imprisoned in an underground bunker who have been left alone to die.

Their remains are discovered five years later by the owner is a newly built property. Enter D I Marnie who with her team have the challenge of solving this horrific crime.

This novel lets us into D I Marnie's past a little more, and also we discover more about her sear gent Noah Blake, who has his own troubles relating to his younger brother and is battling his claustrophobia. There are a whole host of other characters who may or may not had something to do with these horrific deaths.

This book has many twists and turns with lots of clues and D I Marnie is determined to find out who these boys are and who is responsible for these deaths. A brilliant accomplished novel that I absolutely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars A small, self contained novel., 20 Feb. 2015
This review is from: The Mountain Can Wait (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a novel that focuses on a small cast of characters in a self contained novel that is a great read.

Tom Berry is a quiet man - one who lives half of the year for and in nature running a small team, in remote isolated forests. The other half of the year he spends tending to his family a little group he has brought up almost singlehandedly sine the departure of his wife. A good determined man, you learn of Tom's life running forestry teams in remote wilderness before an accident forces Tom to abandon his routine and seek out his son. You get an awareness of the vastness of Canada as you read.

Tom is a strong personality and it is difficult to dislike him. A man who has singlehandedly brought up his family and remains a vivid reliable and constant presence throughout. You learn of the the departure of the children's mother, of childhood scrapes and accidents and hom Tom has become the man he is.

A gentle, gripping read with the ties between father and son skilfully explored.


Belkin Cinema Stripe Cover for iPad Air 2 - Black
Belkin Cinema Stripe Cover for iPad Air 2 - Black
Price: £23.00

5.0 out of 5 stars High standard case., 19 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good quality cover, good value for money when you consider the Apple version is almost double the price. Whilst this looks good and is very practical it is quite difficult at first to fit on but once on it is absolutely great.

Light, durable with a brilliant stand it provides good all round protection. It is simple to find the right angle, just adjust the stand to your own personal preference and when you have finished the cover folds closed to protect your screen.

This is a lim lightweight product that will fit easily into any bag. Your I pad is held securely in place by a pastic and silicone frame and typing is simplistic when using this case. I absolutely recommend.

I have to admit we are massive fans of Amigami and these make Lucy's collection up to four now.

These are right up Lucy's street as she loves to dream up new arty ideas.

This set includes a penquin and polar bear, stickers are curling tools. The Amigami's vision is that these cute pastic figures are your child's base for endless hours of crafting, sticking and fun. Stickers feature Googly eyes, bow ties, hearts stars and all sorts of shapes. The tough paper comes in brightly patterned designs, complete with plastic curling wand tool, there's ears wings and an assortment of features to further personalise your pet. There are several animals to collect, plus the stickers and papers are all reusable, which is perfect for lots of play.This cute and crafty collection is a definite must have toy which is innovative and imaginative which provides hours of fantastic fun which gets a huge thumbs up from us.


AmiGami Monkey Figure

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best creative toys in a long time., 15 Feb. 2015
This review is from: AmiGami Monkey Figure (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the second amigami plastic figure I have been invited to review.

This is a gorgeous origami style toy which comes with a gorgeous little monkey that can be customised with the products included with the monkey. Inside the packet is one plastic amigami monkey, one curling tool, six pins and caps, seventy reusable stickers, thirty amigami paper parts along with instructions. Whilst the little monkey is adorable he looked so much better after my granddaughter gave him a makeover.

Everything is simple and straightforward to use, and Lucy adored curling the paper. Like a lot of little girls she adores anything creative so this was perfect for her. From my own point of view I loved the fact that there are over 500 design combinations so this is not just a one time play toy,children can come back to it over and over. This is a great little toy to sparkle little creative minds imagination. Absolutely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant toy, very well made., 14 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good for coordination and learning numbers. This is a really well made toy and the little one who has been testing this whilst visiting has absolutely loved it and myself I think it is a superb learning toy.

The little girl loves anything musical and is enjoying putting the coins into the slot and loves opening the door and emptying it. The pig sings songs counts and makes sounds. The little tune makes her sing along and she soon learnt that she could make the tune even without putting the coins in by putting her finger in the slot and hitting the button. She also used it to hide some of her other little toys.

A winner for little ones, I am going to buy one for a forthcoming birthday, good value really do recommend.

Vidal Sassoon Salonist, Light Neutral Blonde Number 9/0
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant finish to my hair., 14 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really great product. I did find it a little complicated at first, using two pairs if gloves was tricky at step two I got a little bit stuck but plain sailing after that. I found this a totally different concept to others I have tried at home before. You treat the roots first with the brush and then the rest of the hair separately. The ingredients are exactly as you would use in a salon.

The colour turned out fabulous, and even more importantly covered all my grey. The instructions are straightforward really and very little mess, and easy to use once you get used to it and I am more than happy to recommend and I would buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very very good., 10 Feb. 2015
This review is from: AmiGami Bird Figure (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was lucky enough to be offered the Amigami bird figure to review and my granddaughter and I had a lot of fun with this. Ami Gami bird figure is great for children to use their imagination and creative flair.

You get to make your own one of a kind creation. The kit comes with an animal figure, in this case the bird but there are others to collect too, plus everything you need to customise your Amigami. There are paper parts, stickers, pins and a curling tool. To get started first pinch out the paper parts and strips. They punch out so easily and are so strong they can be used and reused over and over.

You can use the curling tool on the strips either before or after you have put them on the figure. You use the little pins to attach the paper parts to the little figure. You can put as many or as few as you like and they simply click on to the pin and pop into the holes in the figure. It is so easy to use and the pins clip together with ease. There are also sheets of stickers with all sorts of things such as eyes and moustaches, flowers and musical notes that you use to customise your design. Again, like paper parts they can be reused.

With 30 paper parts, 55 reusable stickers, a curling tool and 6 pins and caps there are limitless ways to use your Amigami bird. As all the parts are reusable you can change your design again and again. It is so simple to use and we have so much fun playing with this, it is a great little toy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well constructed neat little set., 7 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a cute little "take along set" from Fisher Price. My grandson played off and on most of the day with this. I think the initial attraction was the snake theme - he spent ages putting Thomas into the head of the snake and trying (not always successfully) to manoeuvre the tail of the snake and drop him off the the top of the spiral track. The tail is also the handle which enables the little ones to carry the set around. The set doesn't seem to fold terribly well so I think this is better as a stay at home piece.

The die cast metal snake and Thomas the Tank engine are included, it seems a well made set that you do not need to hunt for batteries for.

As with most Fisher Price toys this relies on a child's imagination to get the most from the set, and I have no hesitation in recommending as my own children had hours of fun with Fisher Price toys such as this when they were young.
