I might not be the most beauty/fashion conscious person but I do like to keep up with the trends, I read quite a lot online and of course all the fashion magazines. So this year I have decided to write a post on the hair and nail trends for Autumn/Winter 2017. Many of you loved my Summer Checklist earlier in the year, and so here I am with what is predicted for hair and nails this season.
It’s been awhile since I curled my hair, in fact I have always been a fan of straightening it. So when I was accepted to review this curling wand from xtava, I thought it was a good time to put some curls into my hair, long bouncy curls not tight ringlets.
I was pleasantly surprised at the packaging, you see the curling wand is a steal at only £20. It’s packaging would suggest a price at the top end, maybe closer to £80-£100. Inside the geometric designed box is another hard black box which contains the travel pouch containing the curling wand. Also included is a heat-resistant glove and instruction booklet.
I have a week off work this week, so it’s the ideal time to catch up on relaxing movie time! Baby girl and I love watching films on the sofa when dad is at work, it’s our time.
This week sees the release of Spark. A thrilling intergalactic animated film with the adventures of a teen monkey, Spark – one small hero and his ragtag team.
Baby girl is obsessed with PJ Masks, the title music has her jumping around the room! I was over the moon when we were asked to have a peek at the PJ Masks Deluxe 16 Figure Pack Playset brand new for Autumn 2017.
PJ Masks is a hit preschool series, I do have a tendency to watch it myself on occasion and find myself humming along to the theme tune. Full of action, good versus evil, music, singing and much more.
Did you know that British children are among the most inactive in the world? We all have days when we want to cosy up in front of the TV and have a duvet day with the kids, especially in the autumn and winter months, where you could also be planning for the festive season, but being active is so important. It can be really tough to prise children away from tablets and games consoles, but there are ways of making being in the great outdoors fun.
Here are some great child-friendly activities for Autumn.
This is one of the best times of the year to take your kids into the forests and valleys and discover the wonders of nature. In autumn, when the leaves change colour and start to tumble to the floor, the countryside looks beautiful, and there’s plenty for the kids to look out for and collect. Take some jars to store different coloured leaves, acorns, and conkers, and print out some quizzes or activity sheets from the Internet. Grab your wellies, wrap up warm, and take a bag full of drinks and snacks. Once you’ve got a collection of leaves, you can use them to make collages or leaf paintings when you get home.
