Ultrasport Tennis Racket IZX1000 - pre-strung
Ultrasport Tennis Racket IZX1000 - pre-strung
Price: £20.87

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, quality, well priced racket., 28 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm very impressed with this racket - I've taken up tennis in the last few months and thought I'd give this racket a try - I understand Ultrasport aren't a vastly known brand currently but they put up stiff competition with the leading brands.

I've been using a starter Wilson racket which cost me double the price and it's a great racket but there are features of this I actually prefer and i'll be using this over it.

The strings are slightly softer which allows you to hit less hard which is perfect for a beginner until you build up your strength and confidence and also the head is slightly larger so gives you more accuracy with the vaster area to hit the ball.

It's a nice weight - not too heavy and has a comfortable feel, the tape on the handle is also comfortable and seems to be on quite tightly and should also last a long time. It's a smart looking racket and I'm enjoying using it.

All in all it's a sturdy, quality, entry level racket at a fantastic price and worth double. Highly recommended.


Igenix Stainless Steel Corded Kettle, 3.5 Litre, 2200 Watt

4.0 out of 5 stars Great budget catering kettle, 28 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very large functional, no frills basic catering kettle. It's quite retro in style and has no base - the cord attaches to the kettle itself though is removable.

Not suitable for your standard household, the minimum amount of water you can boil is a whopping 1.5ltrs which is what some standard kettles hold as its maximum though if you have a large household or use boiling water for other means then having such a large 3.5ltr capacity is fantastic and very useful and perfect as it says for catering so if you're having friends and family around or have a small business and don't need a large urn then this really is ideal. Take up less space than an urn - boils a whole kettle in just under 5 minutes.

Structure wise it isn't bad - the kettle itself is lightweight an has the standard safety features like 'boil dry protection' and auto shut off when boiling - it also isn't noisy considering it's such a big kettle.

Handle has a nice feel - it is comfortable to hold even when full and doesn't feel at all precarious when pouring such a large sized kettle.

All in all it does the job and I think is a bargain price - but don't think you can use this to boil just a couple of cups of tea worth - it's not your everyday household kettle - great I think as a spare to keep in for when your household is busy or for work places.

Recommended, great functional kettle


AmiGami Monkey Figure

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun and original creative toy., 19 Feb. 2015
This review is from: AmiGami Monkey Figure (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely creative set and would make a great gift for any child into arts and crafts.

Each part of this monkey is customisable as it includes several different eye stickers to create different expressions and accessory stickers to give it it's own look- there are many paper parts to create the ears and tail etc. The figure itself is a small pink plastic creature with some stickers already on - like the floral pattern it wears and it has holes in which allows you to connect the different parts via the jewel pins included.

It took my son about 30 mins to complete once he'd figured out which pieces to use - he liked creating it though not impressed with the colour which would lead me to suggest that it's a downside that a lot of the models in the range are very pink - I got this for my little boy but he didn't like that it was a pink monkey which was a shame as he loves monkeys and other than that would've enjoyed it! They seem to be limiting the audience colour wise and little boys would love this product too.

Recommended for an original, fun, creative gift.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun and original, 19 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely creative set and would make a great gift for any little girl into arts and crafts.

Each part of this butterfly is customisable as it includes several different eye stickers to create different expressions and accessory stickers to give it it's own look- there are many paper parts to create the wings and antennas which you can curl and punch hearts in with the included heart hole puncher which is personally my favourite part as you can use this again and again with other arts and crafts and cards.

The figure itself is a small pink plastic creature with some stickers already on - like the floral pattern it wears and it has holes in which allows you to connect the different parts via the jewel pins included.

It took my daughter about 30 mins to complete once she'd figured out which pieces to use - she liked the design element as she's into creating and fashions. Once created she's proud of it though for a one off toy to make that's a bit delicate to play with the price could maybe be a tad lower but having the version with an adde hole punch you can use again and again makes up for this.

The only other suggestion I'd have is that a lot of the models in the range are very pink - I got the monkey version for my little boy but he wasn't impressed it was a pink monkey and he loves monkeys! They seem to be limiting the audience colour wise and little boys would love this too.

Recommended for an original, fun, creative gift.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, great scent., 2 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great idea. I've been tempted to try these Air Wick Freshmatics for a while now and I'm not disappointed.

I did however have visions of keeping this in my downstairs loo but being a small room even on the low setting I found this quite overpowering so now I have this in my dining room and even on low it is scenting the whole downstairs of my house! Definitely best if up high to give the smell chance to disperse - definitely better in an open plan house or large room not a small room or bathroom - I can't imagine you'd need to go above the low setting to be honest and it claims to last up to 2 months on low so we'll see how it goes!

Easy to install to the device once you get the hang of opening the deivce, and a very nice, light, pleasant scent. I'd buy more of these, I wish they'd make a slightly subtler one for small rooms so it can be placed in a bathroom though - but this is great for keeping your house smelling good all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the snow!, 2 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I definitely feel ready for the winter and shall not dread the prospect of snow quite so much with this fantastic jacket. I hadn't personally heard of Ultrasport but having tried several ski-jackets and heavy duty extreme weather type clothing I would say they were up there with the best.

The best thing about this jacket is that it is lightweight, non-restrictive and you don't have that uncomfortable 'can't move my arms' feeling. It is well designed with skiing, snow and extreme weather in mind. It has many pockets put in convenient places just where you need them - it even has ski features such as a ski skirt and an attached cloth for use with your goggles which is a thoughtful touch and invaluable.

Most options are removable so you can customise this to suit you. (The hood, fur, snow skirt etc) there's even a pocket designed for ipod use with a cable hole so you're spoilt with the real ease of use this brings.

Testing it out initially during the current cold snap and small amount of snow I can confirm this is a very warm jacket, stops wind getting in, the hood is very snug and comes right around your face, also keeping you warm in strong winds. The thumb holes on the sleeves are great for keeping your sleeves over your hands if you're not a fan of gloves and it's a generous size - we tried the XXL - which is very large but good to allow for a lot of layers underneath.

All in all a fantastically well made jacket, up there with the best, designed specifically with skiing in mind so i'll be looking forward to trying this out next time I go. Highly recommended even for just a winter jacket - very warm and multi-functional - great price too.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good everyday gloss., 2 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great for everyday use. This particular colour looks red on the picture but it's slightly more on the dark pink purple side. It's great for everyday to save the constant applying of regular lipstick. It does leave a stain which isn't as bold as lipstick but there's always some colour on your lips when the actual lipgloss has rubbed off. It's a purple pinky tint of colour but I'd still reapply the colour to make it bolder.
I'm quite keen to actually try the red as I'm generally just a red lipstick girl.
The best staying on lip gloss type is the maybelline 12hr one which is amazing and I'd still choose this one as it's a sure fire thing it'll stay on after drinks.
Not a bad product though - great for work etc and not at all sticky like some glosses.

5.0 out of 5 stars The brightest of whites!, 31 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a 5 star product. I've always used the regular vanish powder but this definitely has the added umph and worth the extra money.

You can either scoop this into every wash to bring your whites up bright and revitalise them or make up and solution and rub this into a particularly bad stain then also add powder to your wash for an extra boost.

Top quality product, you can't go wrong with vanish - large size- lasts a long time - I also recommend the colour version for other washes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dentist clean everytime., 25 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a fantastic toothbrush. It really so very well thought out and currently in my opinion the best you could get out there. The accessories firstly provided with it are stylish and multi-use. You have a glass beaker which also can be used whilst charging - the travel case allows it to be charged whilst in the case which is the first i've seen of that type personally and very handy if you're on the move all the time like I am and you can just use the case on its on also.

The brush has various brushing modes - some alone are of the same standard as a dentist polish/clean so the price is very good considering the quality and feel of your teeth after.

Using the brush is simple - I charged it for a whole day before using to make sure it was powerful and fully charged but this initial charge has lasted about 2 weeks so far and still going strong so it holds it well. I've never spent so long on my teeth before - it makes teeth brushing fun and rewarding - you can use all settings if you have the time or choose what you feel you need. The sensitive setting is great if regular electric toothbrushes are too aggressive for those who suffer with bleeding gums etc which personally I always have done but since I've started using this it has got a lot better and ive moved onto the more vigorous settings for a really good clean.

My teeth after just 2 weeks feel sparkly, gleaming and indeed whiter - if you're a regular tea drinker this is invaluable - it will blast those stains off with the various polishing settings!

Highly recommended, really worth the money - a great investment.


Tacwise A54 Heavy Duty Hammer Tacker

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use - such a handy tool., 25 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a great product - very simple to use - great for those wanting to do a bit of DIY with too much hassle.

Very easy to set up - you simply insert the staples and you're more or less ready to go. The idea of this is that you use this like a hammer instead of a hammer and nails and it fires staples making it very very easy and convenient especially for fixing roofing! No more trying to balance boxes of nails and fiddling around whilst trying to balance - this really is so simple to use and you don't need too much force to get the staples in and after a couple of practice hits the staples went in everytime.

Using this I have impressed my husband by securing roofing felt on the shed and helping with underlay - it's so easy and highly recommended for all levels of DIYers! Great price too.
