Hippychick HC Turkish Toddler Towel (70x54cm, Blue/ White)
Hippychick HC Turkish Toddler Towel (70x54cm, Blue/ White)
Price: £27.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Very high quality, nice and soft with a price to match, 19 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really nice quality product. Very soft although it is quite small. It fits my youngest who is 2.5 well but any bigger wouldn't fit. As other reviewers have said it is ideal for a swimming pool, where you can come out and put the poncho straight on without having the towel falling off or dragging along the floor.

My only criticism is the price. Aldi (the supermarket) recently had a similar hooded towel (not a poncho) made from cotton that was a fifth of the price, but if you don't mind the cost then it is probably the very best you can get.


Hozelock Wall Mounted Compact Reel with 15m Hose
Hozelock Wall Mounted Compact Reel with 15m Hose
Price: £22.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and easy to fit., 7 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very easy to fit, clear instructions for a change and does what is advertised. The hose is 15m, but the reel can actually fit 30m. Once mounted to a wall with 3 pretty long screws it does seem very robust. There is no resistance when reeling in which is good, so it's easy to wind up. The hose is lower quality hoselock, so will probably kink easily, but for the price that is unimportant.

Great value.

Kingston Technology 16GB DataTraveler Micro USB Flash Drive
Price: £4.92

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, large capacity and cheap., 7 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing size and price. It is easy to conceal and doesn't stick out your computer (which often leads to people walking into it and damaging the USB port or worse). The only downside is that there is no "thread", so you can't attach it to a keyring.

Amazing value. Needed a massive tape to measure space for my double garage. Imperial and metric units. Easy to reel in. What more could you need for the price?

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than headphones and a bag at the same time. Excellent., 7 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made and loud enough to hear above traffic noise. Doesn't say anywhere that it is waterproof/resistant but it seems to be constructed in a way that will keep water out from the electrics inside. The bag itself is large enough for a phone, some energy gels and even a multi-tool and tube if you squeeze. The battery life is about 5 hours. A better solution to headphones I reckon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very bright and dimmable. No Hum!, 7 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic. Very bright and dimmable. Doesn't hum either and a good price. Couldnt ask for anything else really. One thing to bear in mind is that it is quite big (slightly taller than an old style bulb).


Leading Sustainable Change: An Organizational Perspective
Leading Sustainable Change: An Organizational Perspective
by Rebecca Henderson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £22.50

4.0 out of 5 stars good read but hard to dip in and out of, 7 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very useful and insightful book with several interesting case studies. It makes the case for a sustainable business well, but I felt the hardest part of making any changes would be to influence other people, even when the case is watertight, and this should be covered a bit more. At work currently I'm trying to improve our security culture (software development, vulnerabilities, networks, infrastructure, etc) even in light of the huge Sony hack, people just aren't interested. I find that crazy, and it's the same with sustainability. People just don't like change. As the book says, stand by your convictions.

My only real gripe is that there are clear chapters with references, but no summary of facts, therefore it is hard to dip in and out of. Apart from that, it is a good read.


Tefal Pressure Cooker Clipso +
Tefal Pressure Cooker Clipso +
Price: £120.52

3.0 out of 5 stars Works, but has some dubious enginering descisions and better competitors, 4 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Amazon very kindly sent this to do a comparisons to my existing 6Litre pressure cooker the WMF Perfect Plus Pressure Cooker 6.5ltr 22cm diameter 18/10 stainless steel which I've had around five years.

Firstly, the construction is very good, with a heavy base and nice internal machining. The Tefal pan is equally as big as my WMF cooker, but has the clear advantage of folding handles which really is a great addition.

Take note that because the pot is so large, it needs at least a 1/3 full pot of ingredients so it can pressurise correctly. Therefore this is great for large amounts of cooking but not for smaller amounts. Sometimes bigger is not better!

Once up to pressure it cooks really well and is very easy to clean.

Unfortunately I have a few gripes with this compared to the WMF;
Firstly, the rubber seal inside must go in the correct way. Therefore if you forget which way round it goes, you need to look for the very small text that says something like "lid side". The WMF rubber seal is reversible.

Secondly, the only way you know this is at full pressure is when steam starts to escape from the valve in the lid. On the WMF there is a coloured cylinder that raises vertically out the handle to indicate the pressure (low and high pressure points are marked). With the Tefal, it took 8 more minutes on max heat until it was fully pressurised and steam began to come out the valve. Up to this point I didn't know what was happening.

Finally, you're expected to stick your hand near the steam release valve to start to release pressure at the end of cooking. Bear in mind, the steam under pressure will be greater than 100C, this is quite an unbelievable engineering decision. It is possible that with a fairly full pot, some liquid could also be ejected too. You can also just leave the pot to cool (about 15 mins) or to carry it to the sink and run cold water on it (not ideal when pressurized and weighing around 8Kg when full). With my WMF, steam is released horizontally away from the handle and has much better modulation (e.g.) you can release steam much slower than the Tefal).

While we're talking about the release valve, do not wear any dangling necklaces while using this, as there is a slight possibility that you could hook the release handle and turn it accidentally, releasing steam (vertically into your face). If cooking with multiple pans, ensure that you do not reach over this or put your face over it while tending to other pans.

This is a nice cooker and does what it is supposed to do. The folding handles are a really nice touch, but I feel the way the steam is released has not really been engineered well enough. I'll be sticking with my WMF.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, great songs, the kids love it (again again again), 20 April 2015

This review is from: Mamma Mia! (Amazon Instant Video)
The kids love it. The songs are great. The singing is a little ropey, but they're not singers so who cares. A genuine uplifting happy film which is a little silly occasionally but a barrel of fun fun fun.


Maclaren Lavender 100 Percent Pure Essential Oil
Maclaren Lavender 100 Percent Pure Essential Oil
Price: £6.00

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely aroma - very relaxing., 19 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
100% pure lavender oil is very intense, so only a couple of drops are needed in the bath for a lovely relaxing, nose clearing aroma. I found the child proof cap to be difficult to open inbitially, which is no bad thing really. It is a very small bottle, but it goes a long way. Some people are alergic to lavender, so be careful. My son makes him itch but nothing serious. I also found uses for this in my shed where it smelt a bit woody/damp, so a few drops here and there makes it smell divine. Seems to be scaring away the spiders too.
