Have fun looking around 🙂

Crazy Babes Quick Colour

by Babyliss. “Colour your hair to match your mood!”


I am so impressed with this gadget! This has to be one of the best things my daughter received for Christmas – so often these girly things look so good on the adverts, but are crap when you try to use them.
It’s a little hand held battery operated (batteries even included!) hair highlighter. You simply choose your colour and slot it inside, then you put the hair in the compartment and press the button as you slide it down your hair. Small brushes spin round taking the colour off the palette and brushing it onto the hair. I thought this was going to be a nightmare to clean, but I just needed to pull out the brushes and give them a quick rinse under the tap.
I also expected the colours to run out quickly, but there are plenty included and I think it will last for years. I’m so impressed! And it will save me so much time in June. I always dye my hair pink for Glastonbury and do streaks in the kids’ hair too. So I cover them in old t-shirts, find a paintbrush and paint streaks of pink in their hair; then I have sit them in front of the telly for an hour hoping they don’t touch anything while it works it’s magic; then washing it out without making a mess of the bathroom is difficult. This wonderful gadget will save me all that trouble. And it washes out in one wash so they won’t get told off at school either.
One warning though. IT says in the instructions that you have to make sure you hold it the right way up otherwise the hair will tangle. Well there’s a helpful ‘This Way Up’ written on it; but on my one, it’s actually up-side-down, so my daughter’s hair did get tangled up the first time. So check you can slide it down the hair before you press the button. I don’t know whether this is a one-off fault on my one, or whether they’ve made a massive cock-up and actually they all have to have the writing the wrong way round to work properly.
Anyway, this is a highly recommended present for all girls who like dressing up for a party. I think next year when my daughter’s ten, she’ll be able to use it by herself.

Beauty,

Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
Monthly Memoir – July
July 31, 2016
The whole of July was pretty much about our holiday in America. The few days before we left were spent frantically researching where we were going, and the few days after were spent unpacking, washing, and trying to get over jet-lag. We had three weeks away and began in New York, getting the AmTrack train down to Washington DC, picking up a hire car and driving to New Orleans via Nashville and Memphis, and then following the coast East to Orlando to spend the last couple of days in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. Wow! I’m exhausted just remembering it! We covered ten states of America (New York, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.) Phew! ….
