      Brilliant first digital camera

      I recieved my Kodak easyshare M320 as my 18th Birthday Present and was amazed at how simple this camera is, it's a 9.2 megapixel camera, it does have a small built in memory but SD cards are pretty cheap and come in a huge range of sizes. It does have quite a good zoom but only in certain functions, for example i find the zoom to be pretty useless when the camera is being used in sports mode as the pictures come out quite blurry.

      The Kodak Easyshare M320 has a massive range of settings, from landscape to flower closeups(I call it macro but not sure if it is a proper macro setting) to blur reductions to low light pictures. It also has a setting called scenes which contains even more settings such as snow, beach, sports, fireworks, candles etc etc...it basically has a setting for any and every use you could need a small compact digital camera for!!!

      My camera is now 2.5 years old and apart from some minor wear and tear it still works and looks like a brand new camera, it fits in most pockets, has a variety of flashes for different uses and comes in a range of colours, my one is red. The camera comes with a USB cable and a USB plug for charging and a wrist strap which attaches easily to the camera.

      Overall a lovely, if not lsightly masculine product

      I bought Lush Dirty shower gel as i was very attracted to the smell, i love mint and minty type smells and this is certainly that type of smell, I find it also smells slightly salty and it works wonders for waking me up in the morning.

      I love the colour of this product, it's a very nice, clear blue that pretty much screams "clean" when you set eyes on it, It has quite a good lather and a little goes a long way as i've found with almost all lush products i've used in the past and present. This product leaves the skin tingling after every use, not always a great feeling in the winter mornings but as previously mentioned it really wakes me up in the morning, i've used other products that have left my skin tingling but none as effectively as Dirty by lush, the bottle is standard lush packaging, clear bottle with a flip cap and a black label which has the name and a wee description of the product.

      A good hoover for pet owners

      I have had my vax for over a year now and can't complain, the hoover comes with a lot of attachments, all easy to use and the manual states clearly which ones suit which purpose, the hoover had a lot of suction power and is very easy to take apart and put together again. It comes with a warranty which i've never had to use but it's good to have.

      I have a large dog that moults a lot, he's only got a short coat but the amount of fur that comes off him twice a year could make several other small dogs!!! Thankfully this vacuum manages to get about 98% of the hair out of the carpet without needing to use any attachments, the hose is very easy to attach/detach and gets into every nook and cranny without a lot of hassle. The hoover is fairly easy to move around and the lead if very very long so no issues with having to switch to a nearer plug to get the other end of the room.

      Great value for money

      I was given a 1st Gen apple ipod shuffle for my birthday some years ago, i still have it and it still works perfectly, a great example of the high standard apple sets in the world of the MP3 player. The ipod Shuffle was very small, and very easy to find somewhere to put it, the controls were very basic, theres a slider at the back for on, off and shuffle, and the controls at the front for play/pause, next song, last song and volume controls, to put the ipod on hold you held the play button for 4 seconds and the top of the ipod would flash orange. There was also a small button you could press to check battery levels, green for good, orange for poor.

      The ipod shuffle, although basic i feel is one of the most superier ipods ever built, apple designed something small, easy to use, cheap and basic and it worked brilliantly, as i said my ipod shuffle still works and i've had it for at least 6 years now.

      Brilliant for someone who wants a mini notebook

      I got my 3nd Gen apple ipod touch 3 years ago(December 2008) and i have to say i am so impressed with the quality of my ipod today. This as well as all ipods was very easy to use, easy to handle, slim fitting and of course, played songs to a high sound quality. Initially my ipod was filled with music but over the last 3 years i've found myself with an ipod that has songs, films, music videos, pictures and apps of all types on it. It has always been able to fit snugly into my pockets and after 3 years the screen only has one scratched part on it, possibly showing how careful i am with my ipods or maybe just how hardy and well made they are.

      Sadly my ipods battery is now degenerating, i can wake up to a fully charged ipod that will be dead within 5 hours, not bad for a 3 year old ipod that has seen at least an hourof use every day but it does make me sad, apart from that i have literally no complaints about this ipod touch.

      A fantastic ipod for anyone to use

      I got my G2 nano for christmas about 4 years ago now, it was a total shock but a very pleasant one as i was using a G1 shuffle at the time. I was impressed with the screen quality, the very easy to use controls, the variety in categories and playlists i could create and of course, the games built into the ipod. I especially loved the music quiz as it would make the quiz using the songs i'd installed on my ipod so it was down to me to remember the music accurately.

      I remember marvelling at how lightweight and slim the nano was, it slipped into my pocket and took up very little room, also it fits into a hand comfortable and sneakily, excellent for listening to music in class(i was in secondary school when i got my ipod). I never used my ipod for photos which i was told it could hold but i filled it to the brim with music, being a teen of course i had a lot of music to stick on it and the majority of the songs were changed weekly whilst i composed a playlist of my ultimate favourites.

      I feel the nano was the starting point for the app's we all know and love on every ipod today(shuffle being the exception), i remember there being a stopwatch, calendar, world clocks etc etc and after my school trip to China i kept my ipod on Beijing time :)

      Great wee car, especially good for a runaround

      We got our wee Clio in June 2010, it was a standard 3 door 1.2 renault clio extreme, a sort of smoky blue/grey colour and looked very small on the outside. We were pleasantly surprised when we got in as it is actually rather spacious and has a great size boot for such a small car. Our Clio managed around 44MPG on average and we enjoyed driving it massively as it was very quick around corners and maintained a good speed on straights.

      The clio could feel a bit cramped if all 5 seats were occupied but when it was just me, the OH and the dog we had more than enough space, our large dog could easily lie down in the boot and move around if he needed to, there was a ton of room in the back seats for shopping/luggage etc and plenty of room in the footwell and front area for me to be comfy.

      Good value for a 4X4

      We got our Suzuki Grand Vitara(05) early this year, we live on a farm so a good 4X4 was essential to us but we have a large dog so we needed something a bit bigger than a jimny which was our original choice. The Vitara is very spacious inside, it's comfortable, for a 4X4 it's fairly cheap to run(ours averages about 34MPG) and we haven't really had any issues with the car other than the boot door lock rattling which we fixed easily.

      The reason we went for the Suzuki 4X4's is because we have seen them in action, they can go almost anywhere and not get damaged at all...we watched a video on youtube of one driving through an extremely deep puddle and coming out to carry on driving down the track, a major plus for our needs. We also did some research and found them not only less likely to break than some other 4X4's but easier to find parts for and incredible easy to fix. One other thing we have noticed about our suzuki is that it's pretty dirtproof, our previous car was almost constantly filthy and we were having to wash it at least once a week, this car we've had since April and it's been washed 3 times!!!

      Overall a great starter 4X4, very easy to repair, comfy to drive in and a sturdy, hardoworking wee car!

      Overall a good book for skilled readers

      Well as everyone who has seen the film(s) knows, Gullivers Travels is about a man who ends up in Lilliput, a world full of tiny people who after finding out he doesn't mean any harm come to revere him and seek his aid.

      The book is written in an unusual style that i find hard to follow properly, making the book basically unreadable to my eyes, i have struggled through it though and once i got used to the strange lingo i found myself enjoying the book immensly. It is a medium sized book, the plot is of course, well known and loved around the world, the character profiles are in depth enough so you get an idea of the person but they don't waffle, same goes for the lands gulliver travels through and the basic descriptions aren't too long and waffling either. I would recommend this book to any avid readers who fancy taking on something that will engage their minds and add to their collection of loved books

      Great wee toaster for anyone

      I bought this toaster after moving into student accomodation back in 2008(there wasn't a toaster), it cost me about £4 and i did get some stick as it's a very small toaster and i lived in a flat with 9 other people. It soon turned out to be one of the best toasters i've ever used, ok it was only big enough to fit warburtons bread in properly but i love warburtons so that wasn't an issue for me. It's very basic, just a plain white toaster with a heat setting, eject button and the slider but it produced perfect toast every time(to anyones taste, not just my own). Thank to that great wee toaster beans on toast became a firm fallback at the flat and when i moved out again it was perfect for when times were hard.

      This toaster is really small, i'm not just saying this it is literally tiny, thankfully there are loafs on the market that will fit it easily such as warburtons toasty bread but be prepared to stand and turn the toast so it cooks evenly if you have a different preferance in bread.

      Fantastic product, will always have an ipod

      My first ipod was a G1 ipod shuffle, it was 64mb and i think the most songs i ever got onto it was about 103. Thats when my love of ipods started, a couple of years later i was given a G2 nano which again i loved as it was more technical than the shuffle and of course, had a screen. Then in 2008 i was given a G2 ipod touch, it was a total surprise and i fell in love with the ipod touch that same day, my ipod was an 8GB touch, it held a few films, plenty of great apps, mainly puzzles, it had pictures and internet access. My ipod touch lasted me 3 years and then this year i got the G4 touch and once again i am stunned at how much more modern it is!!!

      Now it still has all the features my other touch had, internet, pictures, app's etc but it's smaller, thinner, faster and it has a camera built in!!! I love ipods and this is just another step into the future, the ipod touch is essentially a mini computer but it hasn't lost it's primary goal of provising music wherever you go. 32 GB gives me a huge amount of space for my songs/pictures/apps etc and I find it great value for money.
