A Great First Date: The Guide to this Postmodern Love
A Great First Date: The Guide to this Postmodern Love
Price: £2.16

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't go on a first (or second) date before you read this!, 25 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very comprehensive guide in four parts firstly detailing preliminary information - the seven frequently asked self sabotaging questions stand out for me here. Secondly, pre date considerations which covers everything you should know from when and where a first date should happen, a reminder of the goals of a first date, clothes advice, even emergency kit and circuit theory and time travel (read it and it makes absolute sense). The third part covers Date Day itself - be your 'best self' and play games are the key. Suggestions such as two truths and one lie make the whole awkwardness of the initial meeting melt away into a fun evening without the 'interview' feel. Along with exit lines and post date follow-up, danger signs and general misadventures this is a comprehensive outline of the first date night scenario, concluding in the fourth part with second date and beyond.

A Great Online Dating Profile: 30 Tips to Get Noticed and Get More Responses
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable, 24 Aug. 2014
An excellent step by step guide that works; after one week's membership I have four dates arranged for next week, have been favourited 40 times and messaged and visited countless times.

In clear steps it guides you through the following stages:
Preparation Work
The Story
Cleaning it Up
The Pictures
Finishing Touches

Each stage is broken down into concise tips which are easy to understand and apply. Of most help to me personally was the advice to check out the opposition (the author recommends reviewing around 100 profiles of men with similar parameters), to write what he calls an E-Z Pass line (I did and it works very successfully), not to assume you definitely know what you want in a woman, and to give them a reason to contact you.

This book has been the best purchase I have made all year. Now I am hoping that my purchase of 'A Great First Date' by the same author, works as successfully for me next week!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - I would recommend to anyone interested in making their own natural beauty products., 13 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best book I have on this subject with very clear guidance on equipment, ingredients and safety. So far I have made the rose and red clay cleanser, the jojoba and macadamia cleansing oil, the argan eye serum, the lavendar and clary sage bath bombs, the bath melts, the rosehip treatment balm, the cocoa butter lipbalm sticks, the geranium and orange massage bars and the dead sea detox bath salts. All the recipes have been a HUGE success, even the lip balm sticks which I was not convinced I would manage to get into the tubes. The cleansers, eye serum and rosehip balm are outstanding - way better than my current (very expensive and natural) products and I have noticed a significant improvement in my skin in the short time I have been using them. There is still a long list of products to make from this book, I just haven't worked my way through them all yet. I am delighted with this purchase and cannot wait for Karen Gilbert's perfume book to be published in the autumn.

A great album from a great band. I would have preferred the non-live version of N17 but all in all a very good selection of their best tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cub scout kit, 4 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for both children to take to Cub Camp - lightweight and easy for them to carry, with added bonus that they can be named with an indelible freezer type pen and then washed with hose-pipe and old washing up brush when they come home rather muddy............

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent addition to your knitting collection, 9 Mar. 2010
This book is worth having, if not for its knitting advice which IMO is well worth every penny, for its humour. Elizabeth Zimmerman and Barbara Walker are essential reading for any knitter who isn't satisfied with being a 'blind follower', if you want to knit your own designs then start here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic radio, 23 Dec. 2009
Very good radio which I bought for my 6yo son's birthday. Love the sleep timer function as it means my son can listen while he goes to sleep and the alarm function is great too. Wish I had one of my own!
