Have fun looking around 🙂

Make-up Mania

A large box set for children by Galt. This time it was my eldest daughter’s birthday, and she had some friends over for a sleepover party. To keep them occupied, I bought them a Make-up Mania box, and this is what it was like.

This box cost me £14.99 and I thought that was pretty good value for money really. It was for my daughter’s 10th Birthday Sleepover and it would be a great present for someone doing the same thing. The box contains eight nail varnishes – and they’re nice pearly and glittery ones too; a heart nail file; 2 toe dividers; 2 hair bands; a pack of lots of little hair clips; 6 butterfly hair clips; 2 lip glosses; stick-on gems; nail stickers; transfer tattoos; a head band; glitter hair mascara, body glitter and 8 eye shadows/lip sticks.

All in all there is plenty to keep you daughter and her friends occupied at a sleepover. And when I compare the price to my other daughter’s disco party (£120!) this is an absolute bargain!! I did actually buy a couple of other boxes (friendship bracelets and body stickers set) as well, but I did have 10 children staying; and you’d be completely stupid (like I was) to have that many. If it was just 4 or 5, this box would be enough. I’d recommend it for ages 8 to 11.

Beauty,

Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
