5.0 out of 5 stars Good buy - smart & unobtrusive, 31 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great - charges quickly and the three ports can be used at the same time. It is low profile, so doesn't get in the way & sits neatly and unobtrusively. It is a snug fit, but this is good unless you will need to keep taking it in and out.

2.0 out of 5 stars A revolutionary theory or plain common sense? I'd say the latter!, 31 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This woman is revered amongst some of the top names the education world, yet her main idea seems to be that if you think positively, (with a 'growth mindset') you can achieve much more than with a closed mindset. Really?? Apparently it took years of research to discover something so blindingly obvious that as a theory it really doesn't merit any kind of accolade. Given that the theory itself is mainly common sense, and requires little intellect to understand, the book becomes very repetitive. There are numerous anecdotes about people who have succeeded through having a growth mindset - right through to page 146 where the author gives an account of her cousin Cathy whose husband left her & then she had a car accident, but (and I quote) "she said to herself 'I'll be damned if I'm going to sit feeling sorry for myself' and out she want to dance where she met her future husband". Dweck says this 'should perhaps be the mantra of growth mindset!' No sh*t Sherlock!

Even the blurb on the back of the book says "Mindset reveals what all great parents, teachers, COEs and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can foster learning and nurture the resilience that is the basis of accomplishments in every area" For those of you in this category who 'really know' don't waste your time reading the book - it will tell you nothing new. For those of you who don't, the first chapter (or one of the many book reviews) will sum it up for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice cover, disappointing smell, 2 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty heart, but the smell is much more powdery than expected. It is also not a very strong scent and cannot be smelt unless right next to it. A little disappointing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Lego kit, 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LEGO Technic 9393: Tractor (Toy)
This is everything you'd expect from a Lego Technic kit.

With some determination my 10 year old son managed to put it together on his own, so it may not be suitable for the upper age range stated, but it is definitely suitable for the lower age range.

1.0 out of 5 stars Non uk plug & very very slow delivery., 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I was looking for an alternative to the synthetic air fresheners you get which can irritate and don't always smell that great.

The reviews were good ( I now realise these were mostly from the US) so I thought I'd give it a go. Firstly, I waited ages for this to arrive (it took nearly a month!). Once I received it I unpacked it & found the smell to be quite pleasant & not too overpowering. But to my disappointment, the plug-in unit has a non-uk plug on it, so I can't use it. I have tried using an adapter, but this puts the unit sideways which means it will leak!

Basically, a long-awaited item which promised good things but has turned out to be a real disappointment & is now being returned for a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great practical bowls, 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These bowls are stylish and practical. The stainless steel inserts can be removed, giving you double the number of bowls (or a set for when the main case is being washed!)

They have rubber feet so are non-slip on a mat and they are a decent size for food - a little large if anything.

Overall, I am really pleased with my purchase & would recommend them to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pink not white!, 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the fit of these glasses. I have a small head so conventional sports glasses tend to swamp me and do not stay on particularly well, but these are a perfect fit.

My only gripe is that the frames are a pearlised pink, not white as described. I personally don't mind this (and may well have chosen pink if it had been an option!) but this may not be to everyone's taste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outdoor furniture cover, 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very quick delivery. the cover is of nice quality & fits well on our 210cm square table. However, it is a little short so leaves the bottom of the table and chairs exposed.
