Bourjois 1 Seconde Mascara, Ultra Black
Bourjois 1 Seconde Mascara, Ultra Black
Offered by catherinesss3
Price: £6.94

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favourite mascara!, 21 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is my new favourite mascara! Very, very black and only one coat needed.

It goes on very easily and lasts all day. It comes in a chunky container and the brush is easy to hold when applying to the lashes.


Bosch AQT 3400+ High Pressure Washer
Bosch AQT 3400+ High Pressure Washer
Price: £94.77

4.0 out of 5 stars A good investment for any household....., 21 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was surprised by the compact size of this Bosch AQT 3400+ High Pressure Washer - but for its size it packs quite a punch. It is easy to set up (you need an electrical supply and a hose and water supply) and easy to use. However I did find changing the attachments a bit fiddly and awkward. The lance attachment is great for cleaning cars and bicycles. I have lots of sandstone rocks in the garden and have been cleaning them using a wire brush - very hard work. This power washer is great for removing moss and lichen and has saved me lots of elbow grease.

A good investment for any household.


Heathcote & Ivory Lavender Fields Travel Hand Care Set
Heathcote & Ivory Lavender Fields Travel Hand Care Set
Price: £6.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely presented....., 14 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a pretty little gift set from the reliable Heathcote and Ivory people. There is a subtle fragrance of lavender - very pleasant as it does not cry out "old lady smell"! The hand cream is very effective and the cuticle cream easy to apply although I cannot vouch for its long term benefits.

Both items are small enough to pop into a handbag. The set is very nicely presented and would make a welcome inexpensive gift.


Spider-Man 6-Inch Marvel Legends Series Multiverse 2099 Figure
Spider-Man 6-Inch Marvel Legends Series Multiverse 2099 Figure
Price: £26.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat pricey for what it is......, 14 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The figure I received was the Green Goblin. Our youngster who visits twice weekly is just getting into Marvel Superheroes and this got a big thumbs up. the six-inch tall figure is articulated and can be posed in a range of positions. He can be made to stand on the "glider". It comes with two additional heads - afficionados of Marvel characters will know who they are supposed to be.

Somewhat pricey for what it is but I guess some people will want it as part of a collection rather than an addition to the toybox.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly effective......, 14 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I found these Foam Tips to be surprisingly effective. They certainly block out external noise and the sound from my iPod seems much improved. (I only use my iPod for listening to podcasts and audiobooks so cannot comment on the quality of music.) They come in a neat little box with clear instructions. Husband complains that I don't answer him when he calls me when I'm working in the garden!

I was offered the medium size which fits OK but when I come to replace them I would choose a smaller size.


Design Toscano Gotham, the Gothic Gargoyle Statue
Design Toscano Gotham, the Gothic Gargoyle Statue
Price: £51.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun garden ornament...., 30 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not the most grotesque gargoyle and actually has quite a mischievous rather than evil face. He has company in my garden alongside a Buddha, a Madonna and a gnome called Oscar.

At the moment he still looks a bit new and "plasticky" so I hope he weathers eventually to match my other ornaments. Being made from resin he should withstand the winter. It was not very heavy so I do wonder if it could be blown over in a strong wind. The base is not level (slightly convex) so actually wobbles when on a flat surface. However it seems quite secure embedded in soil surrounded with rocks.

A fun garden ornament but feel it is very overpriced.


Rimmel Extra Long Lash Mascara, Extreme Black
Rimmel Extra Long Lash Mascara, Extreme Black
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive but effective!, 30 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was surprised by this Mascara! The applicator brush is very fine but applies the mascara to the lashes accurately - certainly better for the lower lashes than those thick or curved brushes. I found that two layers give a really impressive result. I assume it contains fibres to give that "long lash" look. I noticed only minimal smudging by the end of the day.

This mascara is easily removed using a normal cleanser.

Highly recommend this inexpensive but effective mascara


His Bloody Project
His Bloody Project
by Graeme Macrae Burnet
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Literary, crime and historical fiction all in one book....., 29 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: His Bloody Project (Paperback)
His Bloody Project is written as a series of documents relating to a brutal crime in Scotland in 1869. The case is clear: Roderick Macrae admitted that he killed three people and stated that he had no wish to say anything in his own defence. But at his defence lawyer’s request he writes an account of the events leading up to the murders. There is also a report by J. Bruce Thomson, Resident Surgeon at the General Prison in Perth who declares himself to be a Criminal Anthropologist. Thomson writes his report with a lofty arrogance and reveals no understanding of the privations of the lower classes. The section on The Trial is riveting as Sinclair (the defence lawyer) attempts to save Roderick by pleading insanity.

Roderick’s testimony is probably the best description I have ever read of the lives of crofters and farmers at that time. The laird was a remote uncaring figure and lives and fortunes lay in the hands of the factor (the laird’s foreman) as well as the heavy hands of the Presbyterian church.

As a piece of writing this is a tour de force – the sort of book you want to finish at one sitting. If you are a fan of literary fiction, crime fiction or historical fiction then this is the book for you!


In a Dark Wood
In a Dark Wood
by Amanda Craig
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars The power of fairy tales......, 25 May 2017
This review is from: In a Dark Wood (Hardcover)
Benedick Hunter’s life is on a downward spiral. His wife is divorcing him, his acting career is going nowhere, his father pompously dismisses him and his small children are uncontrollable. But while all this is going on he is haunted by the loss of his mother to suicide when he was very young. He hears differing stories about her and no-one seems willing to talk to him frankly about why she killed herself.

When he finds one of the fairy story books written by his mother he becomes immersed in her world of good and evil and examines the stories for clues about his mother’s life. His mother was brought up in America and he makes up his mind to go there (living off the US royalties from her books) and is accompanied by his six year-old son.

This sounds as if it is all very depressing but it is not. Amanda Craig writes with passion but with a lightness of touch. In many ways Benedick is an awful character but I was drawn into his sense of sadness and loss. The fairy stories recounted are terrific – echoes of Marina Warner and Angela Carter – and add much to the book.

Poor Benedick – he had to go through his own dark, dark wood before coming out into the sunshine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Performed better than expected...., 23 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I normally only wear clear varnish but liked the look of this.

The shade I chose is almost white but with a definite tinge of green. It has a lovely pearly translucent finish. I applied just one coat on top of clear nail hardener and was pleasantly surprised how easy it is to apply. It dried after a few minutes.

Since first applying the varnish yesterday morning I have had three sessions of gardening - digging, weeding and planting out. I wear latex gloves but even so I was amazed that the varnish has remained intact. Performed so much better than I expected.

Super - will continue to use this L'Oreal product.
