Ultratec 20 cm USB 3.0 Mobile Data Cable with 9-Pin Plug USB Type A Connector
Ultratec 20 cm USB 3.0 Mobile Data Cable with 9-Pin Plug USB Type A Connector
Price: £3.27

5.0 out of 5 stars Small, portable, useful, cheap, 28 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm glad of this lead, connecting a USB 3 to a USB 2 because it's definitely not something you tend to have several of, just lying about the house, but it comes in oh so useful. I'm prone to misplacing the only other one I have, and that's a fairly big lead. This is a small connector, but that's good as it makes it portable and also easy to fit in a carry container with your device. This is very robust at the joints between the lead and the connector ends. Very cheap price at the moment too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the cheap ones, this is the one you want to get, 28 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm rather impressed by this food storage container. I didn't think I was going to be so impressed because I already have a container with a clip at each side, which I take chopped up fruit to work in but this is much better. It's more solid, it has a better seal, and it's actually leakproof. Thoroughly leakproof in fact, as long as all 4 seals are fastened. It's freezer safe, dishwasher safe and microwave safe. Plus it has fluid measurement gauges on each end. It's made of tough plastic too. Worth spending a little more for the quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good cash box, 24 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice solid metal cash box with a removable coin tray inside (4 compartments for coins, 1 for notes). It comes in black, has a carry handle, and there is a set of three keys to use with it. You can use the keys either way up. I like the way the top opens on a spring when you turn the key in the lock, that's a nice touch. It opens and closes smoothly. It seems to be very good quality and is definitely a useful thing to have; not just for coins of course, as there is plenty of room inside to store your passport, etc.

Paul Hollywood by KitchenCraft 6-Hole Non-Stick Deep Pie / Tart Baking Tin with Loose Bases, 27 x 18.5 cm (10.5" x 7")
Price: £13.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A professional touch, 24 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really good idea. Have you ever baked pies, tarts or muffins and had problems removing them smoothly and intact from the baking tin? With this you don't need to worry about that because each compartment has a hole at the bottom and a separate disc, made of the same metal as the tin, which you simply push up to remove the finished bake from its compartment. It works a treat and it's really easy to clean afterwards. It feels like a real professional's baking tin, and would even make a great present for those who love their baking.


Post-it 101 x 152 mm "Bangkok color collection" Lined Super Sticky Notes (Pack of 3)
Post-it 101 x 152 mm "Bangkok color collection" Lined Super Sticky Notes (Pack of 3)
Price: £13.27

5.0 out of 5 stars List writing made colourful, 24 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've got to admit it, I do like Post-It notes and I use them a lot. Now there are ones with ruled lines on, I'm starting to use those instead of a notebook when it comes to jotting down lists. The bright colours and ability to stick them somewhere so I won't forget them are both major selling points, and I'm already sold on them. This pack of three different colours uses the super sticky glue, meaning it sticks better to more surfaces, and has one each of orange, blue and pink coloured pads. For the blue one, you need to use black ink because it could be hard to read otherwise, but it's easy to read anything you write on the others. The size is a good 101mm by 152mm and there are 90 sheets to each pad.


Body Language: Learn how to read others and communicate with confidence
Body Language: Learn how to read others and communicate with confidence
by Elizabeth Kuhnke
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Book layout and writing style can say a lot too, 24 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's not just body language which can create a good impression, the style and layout of a book can say a lot as well. Even before I get onto the content, which I enjoyed reading, I have to say how well set out and easy to read the book itself is. The size is perfect to fit in your hand, the paper is good quality, the font is readable and the use of a particularly relaxing shade of green for the heading text and page surrounds is a great choice. There are some good illustrations too, of characters expressing a range of different facial and body postures, which are generally quite amusing.

The subject matter itself is interesting, and although some of it I already knew, or seemed obvious anyway, I also realised a lot of things I wasn't aware of before, sometimes about other people and sometimes about myself. I liked the writing style too. There was no point where I got bored and wanted to stop reading, and the chapters were short and to the point, making it easy to pick up at several points throughout just a few days and read in short bursts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your standard Post-It notes, 20 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You get six big, lined Post-It notes in this pack. Two pink, two blue, two yellow. They are, compared to the standard size we're all used to, a generous 101 square millimetres. Super sticky too, which means they stick to a greater variety of surfaces and for longer. For using as a writing pad, the yellow and pink are best. If you're using the blue pad, you really need to use black ink. They're much easier than the standard size for simply holding in the palm of your hand to write upon. Very useful, and another reason I love using these notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for pie dishes!, 20 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you didn't know these were Paul Hollywood dishes, you would soon find out because his name is printed on the underneath of them. These pie dishes are really good – just the right size, just the right shape, tough as anything you can imagine and non-stick. So easy to clean as well. They can be used in an oven but must not be used in a microwave. They can apparently be put in the freezer as well, though I haven't had cause to test that yet. I had to read the packaging twice because it says they are guaranteed for 20 years (5 for the non stick coating). That's a long guarantee.


Leitz Wow A4 75 mm Active Lever Arch File - Purple

5.0 out of 5 stars A great design with many great features, 17 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a unique lever arch file! It's not just different in one way, it's different in several ways. The most eye grabbing difference is the curved spine, which is a bit jarring on the eye at first but it makes the file stand out, and even more so with the textured pattern on it reflecting the light. The front and back of it have a wave and circle pattern and the micro-lined texture again catches the light and gives the file an impression of solidity that is borne out by the thickness of the plastic. It has another feature which is very welcome; a raised circle on the front edge and a strip of elastic thread on the other, allowing you to fasten it closed and guard against losing papers (as we all know how easy it is for hole punched papers to become frayed on the edges and become loose with repeated page turning). The special features do not stop with the outside, and inside the front cover you can find a pen holder made from elastic ribbon, a clear plastic pocket for loose papers and two smaller clear plastic pockets on the front of that. The lever mechanism is properly aligned, as you'd expect it to be. All in all, it's a very neat and special folder.


Leitz Next Series Wow Mini Hole Punch and Stapler Set - Purple
Leitz Next Series Wow Mini Hole Punch and Stapler Set - Purple
Price: £20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique look hole punch and mini-stapler set, 17 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The colour and style of this hole punch and mini stapler set make it a visually and functionally perfect companion to the Leitz Wow A4 75 mm Active Lever Arch File - Purple lever arch file also made by Leitz.

The hole punch has a style quite distinctive from the others I have got. Its mix of glossy purple and white is eye catching, and functionally all the parts work well. The measuring guide is one of the simplest and quickest to use I have come across. The punch has a nice solid motion and it is easy to empty the circular clippings out.

The mini-stapler is a mixed bag. It looks good, and it staples well, but I did find it fiddly to load and every time I did so I lost a staple which went flying off, landing in the carpet. I don't see the point of such small staplers over the standard size unless it is to carry them around with you in your pocket, but I wouldn't advise that with this as there is nothing to lock it in place. It also has a small protuberance on the back for digging out staples, and it works well, so that's a point back in its favour.

Although I'm rounding up for the both of them, I give five stars for the hole punch and four stars for the stapler.
