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,

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
review of things are what you make of them by adam j. kurtz
A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
