Hallmark Valentine's Day Card 'Feeling Fruity' - Medium
Hallmark Valentine's Day Card 'Feeling Fruity' - Medium
Price: £1.75

5.0 out of 5 stars Suggestive and sexy, 15 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I thought the design was quite suggestive and sexy without being vulgar. A great 'neutral' choice for someone you've perhaps not seen for too long, No verse inside, simply reads 'Happy Valentines Day'.


Hallmark Valentine's Day Card 'Once In A Lifetime' - Medium
Hallmark Valentine's Day Card 'Once In A Lifetime' - Medium
Price: £2.30

4.0 out of 5 stars Elegant yet simple, 15 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good quality card. Simple but elegant design with a verse that is not overtly sentimental but sentimental enough. This card is on the slightly larger side than a standard greeting card.


Dove Ever Blossom Duo Gift Set - Pack of 3
Dove Ever Blossom Duo Gift Set - Pack of 3
Offered by Beautyglobe
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper individually, 5 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nice set with large sizes but I couldn't help but think it would be a lot cheaper to buy the items individually. Seems like you're paying a lot extra for a shower puff and the box.


Gatineau Cleansing Trio
Gatineau Cleansing Trio
Price: £45.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for anyone who takes their make up seriously, 18 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with any frequently used products you may ask yourself why pay such a high price tag when you can get a brand at Asda for a few pound that does the same job. Quality is all I can say. There is something about Gatineau products that are kinder on your skin and leave you feeling more nourished and elevated. This is a good set as the three products compliment each other. Often sets come with one product you don't particularly want. As with most high priced brands you can use rather sparingly and as the bottles are large sizes that will clearly last a while.


Statesman L255B Under Counter Larder Fridge, 55cm, Black
Statesman L255B Under Counter Larder Fridge, 55cm, Black
Offered by Go Shop Direct
Price: £139.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Classy looking small fridge, 18 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The colour looks very elegant in my kitchen and is a welcome addition. The shade of black is nicely done as it doesn't seem to show dirt, dust or fingerprints which can be a problem when you choose furnishings of this colour. It's quite a lightweight fridge. I wasn't sure if that was a general feature of contemporary fridges as it is replacing a rather old one. This isn't a criticism but more of a caution as I do wonder if it might be easily damaged due to its light weight. If it's securely under a counter though I can't see why this would be an issue, just something to bear in mind.
The insides of the fridge are designed very well as it seems pretty spacious and easy to clean. Similar fridges often have a small freezer at the top. Do bear in mind this fridge does NOT have a little freezer with it but perhaps that is what gives it such a spacious feel. There is plenty of space in the door also with room for drinks, milk, butter etc.
Finally, it's very easy to set up. It can be taken straight out the box and plugged in and you're good to go. No assembly required.


Dove Beauty and Care Collection Gift Set
Dove Beauty and Care Collection Gift Set

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive to look at, 18 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I thought this was a really elaborate looking gift set that doesn't completely break the bank. If your recipient uses Dove products you can't really go wrong as these are all useful items. More often than not when you price up these sets they are actually a bit overpriced considering most brands like Dove go on £2 offers at the supermarket. I thought this set was good value for money though and looks really nicely presented in the box. Particularly liked the travel sized deodorant as this is perfect for holidays, rather than take a massive canister.

5.0 out of 5 stars An actual WOOD board without modification, 28 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's difficult to write a detailed review about a chopping board but I am certainly very pleased with this particular brand, It is sturdy, well made and compliments the Jamie Oliver recipe holder really nicely. Size wise, it sits in the middle in comparison to other boards. It's not huge but it's not small either, you could comfortably cut your vegetables on it or carve a joint of meat perhaps. It's made of acacia wood and has a very authentic wood look and feel. Other wood boards I've seen are typically varnished and take away from the feel of the board. Not the case here, very elegant and traditional looking.


Furby Connect Toy - Blue
Furby Connect Toy - Blue

4.0 out of 5 stars How quickly will the gimmick wear off?, 28 Nov. 2016
This review is from: Furby Connect Electronic Pet (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I remember getting one of the original Furby's as a child in the late 90's and all I can say is... Furby has come a LONG way!

I'm actually planning to give this to my 3 year old niece as her Christmas present and despite the age recommendation I think she will really love it. She is quite advanced for her age and has a very active imagination so I think she'll really enjoy seeing the responses you get from Furby depending how you treat him.

I think in a world full of so much technology there is a danger of kids being stuck behind a computer or iPad and not interacting with people. I'm hoping this won't be the case with Furby and that by assisting my niece with the iPad or phone, myself or her parents can have a shared fun experience with Furby.

My only concern is how long she'll stay interested in him. It's quite a pricey toy if it's only going to be fun for a few weeks. I suppose only time can tell on that one...


Pause for Thought
Pause for Thought
by BBC Radio 2
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.08

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for discussion groups!, 28 Nov. 2016
This review is from: Pause for Thought (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm not actually an avid listener of this show or Radio 2 at all but I really loved this book. It's a really easy to absorb format with short sections contributed by a diverse amount of individuals. You could read the book straight through or pick it up and just identify sections that may resonate with you at a particular time. I think this book would be perfect for any setting that runs a book club/discussion group. There are so many topics that are easy to relate to and I'd imagine with further discussion in a group setting would be rather inspiring and impactful.


Jamie Oliver Recipe Book and Tablet Holder, Brown
Jamie Oliver Recipe Book and Tablet Holder, Brown
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for anything Jamie Oliver..., 28 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very light holder yet sturdy and well made. All tablets seem fine with it but for books it seems designed with the Jamie Oliver books in mind. If your recipe book is a similarly designed shape and format you'll be fine (most of the celebrity chef books are) but may struggle with other recipe books.
