Rose & Co Patisserie de Bain Sweet as Cherry Pie Gift Set - 3-Piece
Rose & Co Patisserie de Bain Sweet as Cherry Pie Gift Set - 3-Piece
Price: £10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars lovely, pretty, well presented strongly smelling gift set, 21 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are really nice little things. They melt in the bath and leave your skin all soft!. They look lovely, and in the box would make a lovely gift. Each fancy is quite small but they are powerful. The main thing is the smell, its very strong but doesnt remind me of cherry pie, more of cherry bakewell, a kind of frangipan/marzipan type smell.
these look lovely on a shelf and have a sparkle in them.
Definitely an item youd be more likely to buy as a gift rather than for your own use.


Rapesco Less Effort Stapler - X5-25ps, 25 sheet capacity (Candy Pink)
Rapesco Less Effort Stapler - X5-25ps, 25 sheet capacity (Candy Pink)
Price: £9.38

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use stapler that does what it says its going to., 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Cant fault this stapler. It is definitely easier to use than a standard stapler, it does use less effort. Itd be a good stapler for people with issues with standard staplers. It is a nice baby pink colour, a hot pink colour would be even nicer (especially as i have hot pink staples that would fit in it!).
Its easy to load, just lift the top of the stapler up and drop staples in. It does normal and turn out (easy to remove) staples. It can staples in up to 56mm from the edge of the paper and will staple up to 25 sheets of paper together (yes, i checked)
Only complaint is due to the 'less effort' mechanism it sits open quite wide when not in use, which takes up more space, but its a small price to pay.

Rapesco Blue Stapling Set with P-830 Hole Punch, Luna Stapler and 5,000 Staples 26/8 mm

4.0 out of 5 stars Very solid well made equipment but harder to operate the punch than others i have tried, 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very nice sturdy set of stapler and hole punch. The stapler is loaded in an unusual fashion (took me a minute to work out). There is a grey area at the back of the stapler that you press and the stapler loading cartridge pops out the front (very rapidly - trying to stop myself playing with it when im bored or thinking!) You drop the staples onto the carriage and push it back in till it clicks. Its a very sturdy bit of kit. Solid and well made, it does normal and turn out staples. and staples to a depth of 73mm in from the edge of the paper. It does indeed staple 25 sheets of paper (yes i did check)
The hole punch is also a sturdy and well made solid item. It includes a bar so you can place hole in the right place and goes up to the short side of an A3 sheet. Its a bit annoying that the bar sticks out of the side of the hole punch. To empty the punch you just flip the front of the base down and tip the holes out. Its quite hard to press, you need quite a bit of strength to operate the punch and its quite large but it does have a locking mechanism so it doesnt take up as much space (the top locks down when not in use. This is operated by sliding a bar across when the hole punch is pressed down, its easy to lock.


Silentnight hotel Collection Pillow, White, Pack of 2
Silentnight hotel Collection Pillow, White, Pack of 2
Price: £21.16

5.0 out of 5 stars very nice soft well made pillows, 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I can honestly say i have never had such posh pillows! Im normally a feather pillow fan but i thought id give these a go.
They arrive in a zipped fabric bag (not squished in plastic bag like our usual pillows) - ok, proper posh pillows! They are covered in a nice soft cotton fabric with a pattern woven into it (rather than the shoddy thin covering that starts degrading quickly).
They are soft to lay on and my head sinks into them, didnt have a bad neck when i woke up either. Not sure i can go back to cheap pillows now! I can see these are going to last and wear well, you can wash them in the machine as well.
Cant think of a single negative about them, even the case they came in will be reused!

3.0 out of 5 stars No effect on me yet but i'll keep trying, 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These havent upset my digestion so far, i am yet to see any appreciable effects on my appetite (raspberry ketones do usually have an effect on me) but i'll keep on trying.
The only weird things are (minor points) the label on the bottle is sticky on the outside, which feels weird, not sure how much i trust a company that cant get the glue on the right side of a label and normally raspberry ketones make my burps taste of raspberries but these dont. Im not sure if thats a good thing or a bad thing though!

Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut and Argan Oils 177 ml
Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut and Argan Oils 177 ml
Price: £16.95

4.0 out of 5 stars removes make up well but has to be rinsed off, 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have mid 40's combination skin and im also a bit lazy, especially where skin care is concerned! There is no way i will be using this stuff on a regular basis as you have to wipe it on then rinse it off. Too much bother for me.
It does work, it removes make up easily and without scrubbing but you do have to rinse your skin afterwards or else you are left with an oily residue that is removed with a quick rinse (didnt think it would be, but it is!)
This stuff goes a long way so this bottle will last for ages and ages. It doesnt irritate my skin (which is irritated by quite a few facial products) and has an ok smell (lavender i think).
Its just too much bother for me, i'll stick to my wipes and my usual cleanser.


Popband Ponytail Holders, Kate
Popband Ponytail Holders, Kate
Price: £8.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit expensive for a bit of bra strap with a knot in it!, 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I think these are pretty ponytail holders but they dont work as well as my usual holders in my fine long hair (longer than waist length). I usually use a large soft ponytail holder and this holds my hair together at the back of my hair, with the pony tail sitting out at a 90 degree angle from my head before hanging down my back. The problem i have with these is that although they hold the ponytail up in the middle of the back of my head the ponytail sags after a short while so it hangs straight down rather than sticks out horizontally then hangs down. My hair doesnt look as nice just hanging straight down. So far they have been easy to remove from my hair (as easy as any other ponytail bands anyway).
They dont sit comfortably on my wrist either, they irritate me! Its also quite a lot of money to pay for what is basically a bit of thin bra strap elastic with a knot in it. I'll stick with my regular holders i think.


Salter 800 Aqua-Weigh¿ Add & Weigh Kitchen Scale
Salter 800 Aqua-Weigh¿ Add & Weigh Kitchen Scale
Price: £15.99

2.0 out of 5 stars This scale has accuracy issues, not what i would expect from Salter, 12 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a review of the salter add and weigh scale 810 rather than the 800, which is a slightly different looking model.

It weighs imperial and metric via a needle that goes all the way round a circular base, one half is imperial, one half is metric. You move the needle by a knurled section that juts out from the plate the scale is on. In doing this you can switch between imperial and metric but also reset the scale to zero after you have added an ingredient (hence the add and weigh idea)

It has a nice wide bowl with plenty of space for ingredients, The bowl fits on the scale quite well, its not a definite 'ooh thats in the right place' sort of fit if you see what i mean but its ok. The size and shape of the bowl is probably the best thing about the scale, the bowl is definitely useful away from the scale (would be a good size and shape to serve salad in!)
You can store the scale in the bowl or the bowl over the scale so it takes up less space. The scale is very visible even with the bowl on it.

My main (and the major) problem with this scale is when you tap it the needle usually returns to a different place making it impossible to zero. It varies by as much as 1/4 of a pound or 100g which is a huge amount, basically there is no way i would trust this scale if i was making cakes.
I was expecting a much better quality item from such an exulted name as Salter to be honest.


The New Russia
The New Russia
by Mikhail Gorbachev
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb read from one of the best statesman of our time, 10 July 2016
This review is from: The New Russia (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am fascinated by autobiographies. I've read Blair, Sugar, Branson etc and when I saw this book is just couldn't resist.

First of all, I like the structure of three book. It isn't one rambling piece of prose. Key events are put into sections so you can use it as a reference book.

Gorbachev's insight is intriguing. With his knowledge and background of how Russia used to work the overall thread is one of sadness and despair for the country he led and still obviously loves. There are some interesting pieces where nearly every single politician was out to discredit him. I particularly like one reference where he says that the Yeltsin goverment were looking for something which he compared to as looking for a black cat in a dark room especially when there wasn't a cat in the first place.

His balance of events is fair. He still holds some bitterness towards his enemies when he refers to them because they destroyed his programme of Glasnost and Perestroika. His insights into Putin should ring alarm bells around the world but I won't turn thus into a political review. Needless to say - beware of Putin.

A fantastic read from beginning to end.


Wellbeing Skin and Coat Grain Free Cat Food, 1.5 kg
Wellbeing Skin and Coat Grain Free Cat Food, 1.5 kg
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Year old neutered male cat approves of this kibble!, 9 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Much as we try to deny it, our cat does love his kibble. He will eat wet food but he likes to have kibble to nibble during the day, when he is tired of being the great ginger hunter!
He certainly relishes these biscuits and doesnt seem to stop to draw breath while hes eating so i guess they are highly palatable to him. Im glad they are good for skin and coat health as hes moulting at the moment and given the amount of him ive brushed up im surprised hes not bald! Ive no idea where its coming from as he still has a beautiful thick full coat!
A kibble the cat approves of (well, thats what its all about in the end isnt it)
