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,

Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….

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….
Rogue theatre company review
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…..

Cath Kidston gift ideas for Mothers’ Day
February 28, 2018
I was given this beautiful set of Cath Kidston hand creams and some beautiful Gift Baskets for Women for my birthday last year, and it occurred to me what a lovely gift anything by Cath Kidston would be for Mothering Sunday. Now, oddly enough, this gift also has been listed as one of the best gifts for tattoo artists, which quite left me flummoxed. Either way, her products combine the two things that make the perfect present – something pretty and something practical….
