2.0 out of 5 stars barely fitting cheaply made., 19 Aug. 2017
The sheet only barely fits over my king size mattress (I bought the correct size sheet). As it is Cotton, it will shrink slightly in the first wash. Also, the elastic to hold it in place could not be less. It's got a slight "hint" of elastication. It boils down to spending much more: Essentially, I bought cheap and got cheap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ordinary, cheap trainer, good for walking around at home - buy one size up!, 20 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a cheap trainer and rather on the smaller side. Having heeded similar reviews, I ordered one size up and the shoe fits.
Also, I have considered the price charged (£16.99) and that is adequate.
I bought the trainers for work to wear something and that I can leave laying around if need be. If you seek a performance trainer or similar, then this is not a good shoe at all. However, if you are not really bothered and need the shoe for e.g. walking around at home, then it will be adequate.

5.0 out of 5 stars seems very good, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very good; comes in a sleeve as well. They appear definitely better than the normal ones for that they don't wear off after just a couple of uses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really pleased with it, 16 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived today; a present for a dear sweetheart.
Really pleased with it. It looks very good and seems to exude that magick you may attribute to it.
A very good piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far better than ordinary handel bars, 10 Sept. 2015

Far better than ordinary handel bars. These are "lockable" thus do tighten when loose, by using the screw-fittings on the side.

5.0 out of 5 stars As it should be, 18 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Admittedly, after having previously bought clear looking Patchouli Oil (from a different seller), I was not sure.

However, this Patchouli (also clear in colour) is brilliant. It stays on the skin and the scent prevails for hours, just as desired.
The scent is the expected "earthiness" and is precisely what it should be about.
Thank you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing in so many ways..., 9 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a very, very short book. If you expect an in depth account of shocking conditions in a Young Offenders Institute, then you will be disappointed. The book has a long introduction into the characters only to find the main "story", a few snippets of singular events, culminating in a large riot. Great! (not).
a) The reader who wants a realistic account will be disappointed for that it seems rather far-fetched.
b) The reader who wants a story about gay sex will be disappointed as it is mostly viciously violent (and most of the book is NOT about sex)
c) The reader who wants fiction will be disappointed for that it an extremely short read (took me about 1/2 hour to read the book)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, 1 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst the "parcelled-up" wrapping (rug was folded many times!) initially scared me for that it could have damaged the rug, I laid it out
straight away.
The picture almost does not do it justice for that the purple (a sort of "aubergine" colour) is far more deep and vivid. What can I say:

THE RUG LOOKS STUNNING!

I bought the 240 x 320 cm variety, and I could not be more pleased with it, particularly as the price did not entirely break the bank. It is also reasonably thick which I did not expect for that it was not that expensive. Let's hope it lasts for many years to come. A very, very pleasing purchase. Thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars very thin - but time will tell, and so far so good (2 weeks in), 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am not sure yet. The entire mat seems rather light, thinner than the picture suggests (just under 3mm) and flexible, not at all sure that it will take the weight of the office chair and me sitting on in.
It is, of course, too early to say, but I hope that this is not a waste of money, for that I cannot see this item lasting. It should be suitable for a baby chair perhaps, but a 20 kg office chair and 80 kg person? Not sure yet.
I will update my review in a few months' time.

Update 1) It is taking the 100 kg of weight. Contrary to another feedback, I do not find the edges sharp at all. All four corners are nicely rounded off.
Update 2) I have added an extra star (up to '4' from '3')
