Awesome Ideas for a Kid's Birthday Party

As a parent, if your child’s birthday party is looming, you might need to think about party ideas. This can be a stressful time as you may need to plan for dealing with a lot of kids. There are generic ideas that you could do. For instance you child could have a sleepover. Or even a movie and pizza night. And, of course, these are enjoyable. But you might want to do something a little different.

Here is a list of four awesome ideas that you could use for your kid’s birthday party. You might choose to use just one on its own. Or you could elect to combine the ideas with other ideas.

Clown

Getting a clown is more of a retro idea. It is something that was popular in the 90’s, but its popularity has waned somewhat in recent years. This could be because many children find clowns scary. Of course, if this is true of your kid then it’s best to avoid this idea as it will likely traumatise them. But if there is no aversion to clowns then booking a clown as entertainment is a great idea. Kids respond well to physical comedy that is what a lot of clowns often excel in. Plus there is the bonus of jokes and balloon animals to keep the kids interested.

Magician

If a clown is a no go area, then you might consider hiring a magician as a fantastic alternative. A magician doesn't have the stigma attached that clowns do. Also, there is an air of mystery that often surrounds a magician. Kids love fantasy and mystery. Magic plays a huge part in this, and there’s a good bet that a magician will capture their imagination. There is also the opportunity for the kids to get involved with some of the tricks as well. If your kid responds well to this and enjoys it, he or she may fancy themselves a budding magician. In this case, you can visit http://www.magicnevin.com/ for gift ideas to keep their interest up.

Bouncy Castle

A classic children’s birthday party idea is to hire a bouncy castle. Of course, you will need space if you plan to do this from home. Otherwise, you’re going to need a venue to hold the castle. This kind of birthday idea is fun. It allows the children to interact and also burns off their energy so by the time evening hits they're ready for bed. You should research the best-rated companies that provide bouncy castles and see what they can do for you. Don’t forget that you may need to take safety precautions to ensure none of the children gets injured.

Activity World

A great activity to get the kids out of the house for a birthday party would be a trip to activity world. Wherever you live, there is bound to be an activity centre nearby. Many of these centres have rooms or areas that can be hired out for kids parties. They also often provide food. These centres are awesome for children. There are ball pools, rope ladder and climbing walls. There are makeshift dens and hidden mazes. It’s like they're embarking on their mini adventure. These activities centres should keep the kids interested and occupied for hours. They will also run off all their excess energy, making your life easier when you get home later.

The Best Things to Buy For a New Mother

Swanger_vrou2.jpg

When you hear one of your friends has a baby on the way, it’s a cause for celebration. There’s a good bet that she will have a baby shower to commemorate the event. These are always a fun and joyful occasion. Everybody gets together to celebrate the fact that new life is on its way.


It is custom at a baby shower for guests to bring gifts for the baby. But often mum can get neglected. It is as important for the mother to get things that will help her as it is for the baby. Most people will likely buy clothes, toys or bath stuff for baby and mother. But you have the opportunity to be a little more original by going for one of these ideas.

Carry Sling


A practical and fashionable gift idea for a new mother is to get a baby carry sling or front carrier. Mum (or Dad) can strap the carrier onto their body, pop baby in and walk around for the day. This is useful as it means that mum can get her day-to-day tasks done and doesn’t always need to push a pushchair around. It frees up hands and balances baby’s weight much better. It also makes baby and mummy feel safe as they are both snuggled up together. Plus the carriers are renowned for their safety and durability.


Scrapbook


If you want a gift that is a little more original and personal then you should get a scrapbook. Most people will buy clothes or toys. But these are gifts for baby. It’s important for mummy to have something tangible as well. A baby scrapbook is a fantastic idea, and you can get hold of specific newborn scrapbooks. In these books, mum and dad can document firsts for their baby. For example, news headlines on the day of birth. Pictures of first bath, first steps and other firsts throughout baby’s life. This sort of gift will go on to become a treasured family keepsake that the parents can refer to. Once the baby grows up it can look back on the memories in the book.


Retro Gift

For something a bit different, you could always go for a retro gift. These are a variety of gifts, some practical others more fun. These gifts often have sentimental appeal, and you may find one from mum’s childhood. This would be ideal. Nostalgia is important for a mother as she prepares to give birth. It’s important for her to fondly remember her childhood and a retro gift will help  with that. Something from Rex International would be perfect. You might even find they have a baby-related retro gift as well. This way you can give two gifts in one.


Nappy Changing Kit

Some of the most important things you can buy for any new parent are practical gifts. Taking care of a baby is hard work. It’s important for new mothers to make sure they have the relevant equipment to do this. So one of the best things you can buy for a new mum is a nappy changing kit. This is perhaps the one thing that mum will use above anything else for the first year or so. Baby’s nappy will need changing multiple times daily. By giving a nappy changing kit you prepare mum and dad for this task. This kit may contain nappies, spare nappy changing bags and a special nappy bin for dirty nappies.



Every Girls Dream Wedding


I read a lot of other sites on fashion and beauty, and I’ve noticed that there is a lot of discussion on wedding themes. I understand the reasons why people choose themes, and I agree that they are a good idea. What bothers me is the actual themes they are choosing. I recently came across photos of an Adam and Eve themed wedding. Sounds alright, I thought. That was until I came across the picture of the bride and groom wearing nothing but four leaves between them. I would never dream of standing, nearly naked, in front of all my friends and family at any time, let alone my wedding day. It made me wonder what has happened to the kind of wedding we all dreamt of as young girls. The kind of wedding that is based on fairy tales; simple, yet magical. Here is how I imagine every girl’s dream wedding would play out today…


The invitations should be minimal and elegant. The ideal design would be an off-white square card with gold calligraphy. I’ve seen this kind of style from Paper themes and other wedding stationery providers.


The venue would be a historic building; perhaps a castle or stately home. There are so many of these beautiful buildings around the country that I imagine it would be very difficult to choose! However, I do love the Berkeley Castle and Hengrave Hall, assuming money was no problem of course. I think outdoor wedding photography is the best, so it is essential that the venue has a beautiful garden.


The dress. I imagined myself in a princess style dress at my wedding when I was younger, as I imagine a lot of other girls did. The kind with the fitted bodice and the full skirt that’s white and shimmers when you move. There are so many options for wedding gown styles these days that I think many would be tempted by something different. It is still possible to add a little fairytale glamour to a modern style dress, however. A little sparkle in the material, an exquisite headpiece and a pair of embellished silver shoes would do the trick nicely.


The arrival. A horse drawn carriage would be a wonderful way to arrive to a wedding. However, I do think that the popularity of this kind of wedding transport has diminished in recent years. It is important to make a memorable entrance though. A classic car or something sporty would work.


The decorations. The flowers at the dream wedding would be classic and understated. Bouquets of roses in white and pastel pinks or white tulips with vivid green leaves.

There is a lot of pressure on brides these days to come up with a unique theme for their wedding. I think a particular theme should be picked because it represents something that is important to you and your partner. Not because it surprises, or even shocks, your guests. And don’t forget to borrow ideas from that beautiful and magical wedding you dreamed of as a girl.

What did you dream your wedding day would be like as a child?

Falling For Celestial Themed Beauty Products

With so many new beauty products coming out on a regular basis, it can be hard to keep up with them all. Some of my favourite designs of recent years have been those with a celestial theme. There is something magical about the night sky and when you mix it with beauty products, you have two of my favourite things.


I would absolutely love it if someone used the online star register and named me my own star. Until that happens, I’ll just have to make do with these stunning products instead though. These are just a selection of the products I’ve seen during my beauty buying adventures. Let me know if you’ve come across anything else exciting that I haven’t mentioned.




Charlotte Tilbury The Fallen Angel Quad


This eyeshadow quad is a real winner on all counts. Anything from Charlotte Tilbury is pretty much guaranteed to be exquisite quality, but this has been a firm favourite to date. You can use the eyeshadows dry to create a stunning smoky eye or a subtle shimmer effect. Use them with a wet brush, and you'll get a gorgeous metallic effect that is perfect for evening wear. I love how perfectly the little stars are embossed in the powder and how glamorous the whole palette looks in general. A great purchase for any occasion.



Stila ‘In the light’ Palette


The in the light palette by Stila is one of those palettes that really delivers. It comes with a selection of shades that are neutral enough for everyday wear but also have a beautiful shimmer effect to add on the evenings. This looks great and won't break the bank either. Stila are becoming well respected in the beauty industry. Their packaging and products are always an absolute joy to behold.

When the clock strikes Midnight eyeshadow palette


This is a super cute little eyeshadow palette that is ideal for kids and adults, unfortunately I don't have a photo of it but you can find an image via Emzie Cole's blog (link) It would make a great first eyeshadow palette for a teen. I’m not sure if you can still get these but when they were first released they were stocked in most beauty stores. Mine came from Boots, and I think it was released as part of their Christmas gift range. It is small enough to fit into your handbag or to take on your travels. I love the cute Disney style it has about it.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush


The ambient lighting blush palette from Hourglass is now a cult classic in the world of beauty. While this hasn't got stars or the night sky theme as such, there is something magical about it. It reminds me of stardust or sparkling galaxies and how they light up the night sky. This product is fantastic for everyday use and acts as a blush and a highlighter to perfectly frame your face. A great little blush palette for use at any time of the year. With spring approaching, this is a brilliant way of brightening your complexion and avoiding that pale winter look.

Have I missed something special? I would love to hear your suggestions for anything else in this celestial theme.

Tips for Organising a Memorable Christening Or Naming Ceremony


Having a christening or naming ceremony for your children is the perfect way to celebrate their arrival in the world, as well as introduce them to the religious side of life, if that’s what you're into. People who aren't overly religious hold similar celebrations called naming ceremonies for their kids, as they still have faith to a certain extent. It is not compulsory, it’s your own personal preference. Some adults even decide to get christened if they have not been previously, especially if they have become religious as they have grown. I thought I'd share with you my tips for organising a memorable christening, whether it’s your own or for your child!


Select an Appropriate Location for Before/After


You'll need to choose a suitable church or for the actual christening ceremony, and a place you can gather afterwards to have some food and a drink with your loved ones. You’ll need to make sure the venue for the after event is big enough and will be suitable for the kind of celebration you have in mind.


Send Out Your Invites With all of the Details in Advance


Make sure you send your invites out in advance, and include all of the relevant details so there are no excuses in that respect. Don’t forget anybody, and follow up a little while after to make sure their invite was received. The more notice you give, the better for your guests. Some will no doubt have work commitments. You must be organised!


Find a Caterer or Plan the Food and Drink Yourself


You can always make the food and plan the drink yourself, or you can hire a caterer. In some cases, a caterer will be provided with the after venue. It’s probably best if you serve a buffet for your guests rather than a sit down meal.

14989302317_d618d25476_z.jpg


Source Decorations to Set the Scene for Celebration


You need to set the scene for a celebration, and one way to do this is with decorations. Source your decorations carefully to make sure you're getting the best deal. You can use personalised balloons, wall hangings, centrepieces, and more. It all depends on your budget.


Set up a Table Exclusively for Gifts


There’s usually a gift table at a christening after party, as many people will like to commemorate the occasion with something thoughtful. Set aside a table for this, but ensure somebody keeps a close eye on it at all times. It can be heartbreaking when somebody you think you know steals gifts and money out of cards, but I’ve heard of this happening multiple times. A good idea if you’re having a double christening with a girl and a boy, is to put the girl’s gifts on one half of the table and the boy’s christening gifts on the other half.


Select Something Beautiful to Wear


Christenings call for your Sunday best, so choose something beautiful to wear!


Consider Hiring a Photographer/Videographer


You may want to capture those special moments on camera, so consider hiring a photographer/videographer. You could also call a friend in to do you a favour!

What ever you decide to do I hope it brings you lots of joy and that your special day goes to plan.

5 Awesome Ways to Up Your Beauty Game


Everyone likes to look beautiful. It doesn't matter whether you are heading to work or you are out with the girls. It’s important to many women that they look good. Whether you wear makeup or not, you want to make sure that you look stunning on all occasions. Of course, we can all get into a routine with our beauty. We use the same products and never really venture into anything new. But, if we don’t try different products, how will we know how gorgeous we can be?

Here are five awesome ways to up your beauty game and feel fabulous.

1.    Implementing a Good Skincare Regimen

Let’s face it; it’s important that we have a healthy skin care regimen in place. Check out your vanity case. Does it have everything in it to ensure that you are stunning from top to toe? You need to implement a kick-ass moisturising routine to ensure that your skin is soft and toned. You can use rosacea cream made by Revitol. By doing this, you can diminish wrinkles, dry skin and blemishes. Stretch marks are actively reduced by regularly moisturising. It’s not just your face that needs attention. Your skin is your biggest organ. It’s time to make sure that you are upping your game and moisturising daily.

2.    Eye Shadow Dilemmas

How many of us are stuck in the Kohl rut? Do you fear using eye shadow? Eye shadow is one of the easiest ways to change your entire look. Opt for colours that contrast with your eyes. Have a practice in the house before you commit. Take a look at bright colours, naturals and black tones. Eye shadow can change your whole appearance. You don’t have to stick to a slick of eyeliner to make your eyes pop.

3.    Foundations For All Seasons

It goes without saying that your skin is paler in the winter and darker in the summer. But, who is changing their foundation to reflect the seasons? If you aren't then you're missing out. Having a whole back catalogue of foundation is important. After all, your skin can look paler some days than others. Making sure that you have the correct shade can spare you the embarrassment of tide marks and orange streaks.

4.    Don’t Forget to SPF

Irrespective of whether the sun is beating down, or there is a blanket of snow on the ground, you need to be wearing something with SPF as a base ingredient. SPF can protect your skin from sun damage. Even in the midst of winter! Banish wrinkles and lines by using an SPF based foundation. You don't have to slather the factor 50 on to make sure that you are protecting your skin. But, having a sensible approach to the sun’s rays is important.

5.    Breaking Out of a Nail Polish Rut

Everyone has a favourite colour. Some prefer neutrals, others prefer reds. Break out of the rut! Up your nail polish game. Opt for blues, yellows, and greens. Be wild with creativity. You will find that by exploring different options, you will find a new favourite. After all, beauty is about being adventurous.

How many have you implemented?

New Job // What I Use To Get A Natural Makeup Look


Going to an interview or starting a new job can be tough especially when it comes to your wardrobe and overall look. Depending on your job you may find that your overall look needs to completely change - this is what happened to me. I went for an interview in December at a fantastic company that ticked so many boxes on my ideal job tick list, the role is an office management come personal assistant role, both of which I could do with my eyes closed. I badly wanted this role but I knew it required someone who was very put together, more so than I normally was and that was scary. 

Typically I try to avoid tight waist bands, full makeup, overly done hair and I suppose the 'typical' secretarial look. I just can't handle the tightness and restriction in my clothing. I actually prefer to wear more of a classic or an almost bohemian look with my hair quite natural and my face with minimal makeup on it and this is how I've been for so many years. Starting a new career I knew I was going to have to change my regular habits and conform to what was expected and those expectations were pretty huge - my hair had to be done and I'm talking all neat, tidy, no crazy colours or styles, my nails were to look  The role is a professional role where I'm expected to be a face for the brand - it's working for a private company and there is a uniform which almost reminds me of an air hostess and I really do like it as it comprises of a white short sleeve slub top, black waistcoat, black pencil skirt and neck scarf. 

I wanted my face to look awake for a start - I'm the worst morning person and my face shows it. I wanted to look healthy, natural and put together sort of like a fifties housewife. Anything too bright or too on trend was never going to work. Although I was going for a natural look I used so many of my favourite products and here they are...


Prepping Your Skin  

La Roche-Posay Effaclar || After washing my face I then clarified and toned it with Effaclar which really gets everything off but doesn't strip away the skin or leave you sore and stinging - even after washing my face I find I still get some grime (bleurgh) off so I know this is a great way to unclog those pores before applying anything else. This came in a gift set but you can get the singular lotion in different packaging here (link)

Skin Shop Silver Serum || After giving my skin a thorough cleanse I apply this almost silver-purple tinged cream to the whole of my face and neck area as it keeps me looking hydrated - but - it also acts as an antibacterial protector and when you suffer from pimples, breakouts and cystic acne anything that's got an antibacterial property is extra special as it ensures no nasty bacterias make you breakout. It also works as a protector in the fight against ageing and is so gentle (but effective).  This is one of those products I continue to repurchase once it's run out. 

Balance Snake Venom Eye Cream || I apply this to the areas where fine lines are going to creep up, in-between the eyes, around the nostril lines, the eye area and around the lips. This cream gives you visible results and I mean almost instantly which is why I continue to use this even though it only costs a couple of pound. When you're looking for an awake and with it look, this cream gives you that asap! 

Eos Lip Balm || I actually don't love the taste of this lip balm as it's honeysuckle and melon, I've never been a melon fan to be honest but I so badly wanted to try out this 'cult lip balm' that I caved and got the only flavour available. This lip balm is much harder than say Burt's Bees grapefruit balm which I normally use but for some crazy reason it's gone AWOL *sobs* because of that I've had to start using the EOS as a lip base. What I will say is that this is a great lip primer, it's not overly hydrating but as pre-application before applying your tinted balms or lipsticks it's fantastic as it gives them a waxy but featherlight coating that's great for smoothing away patches of dry skin. 


Which Brush is Which 

Real Techniques || This is the Expert Face Brush which is perfect and I mean p-e-r-f-e-c-t for applying blusher. If you're a blush novice or have a habit of applying too much or too little then snap up this brush as you can't get your blush wrong. Simply suck in your cheeks and apply or make a big smile and apply in circular motions to the apples of your cheeks. 

Small Brush || I have no idea where I purchased this brush from but the bristles are super soft. I use this for applying my concealer as it comes in a palette - this holds the right amount of product and applies it carefully to my spots and red areas really nicely. Because it's so dinky I can apply anywhere without fear of getting concealer on my hairline or in my eyes or on my brows etc. 

Squint Brush || Again I have no idea where this came from. The bristles are so soft and are squint which makes this the perfect brush for applying eyeshadow as eyeliner. After applying a liquid liner I also take a super dark eyeshadow and use this brush to apply it to the lash line as it makes your eyelashes look really think and so dark. 

EcoTools|| After using the small brush to apply concealer to my problem areas, I use this brush to get great coverage. Having used this brush for foundation and concealer I'll never go back to using my fingers or sponges. 

Nanshy || I adore Nanshy. Nanshy make the most perfectly, soft and easy to use brushes around this brush in particular I use as a buffing brush to make sure my foundation and concealer is buffed to perfection. Because the tip is slightly pointed it's excellent for buffing around the nose and the hairline too. 

Virgin Vie || This brush is so old and the company isn't even in business anymore however, the chubby bristles are perfect for applying eyeshadow and getting into the eye socket for the perfect smoky eye. 


Face Base 

Mehron Celebre Pro Palette || This is my everything and then some. When no-other concealer or foundation (from Rimmel to Dior and everything in between may I add)  would cover my acne, the Mehron Pro-Palette did, and it lasts all day. I tend to mix the 2 bottom fair tones to get my perfect shade but what I love is that I can mix my perfect colour to suit seasons or worse spots etc. If you love to contour you can also mix a good contour base with this one palette. 

I stay with the small brush to apply it to the most visible spots and darkened areas, I then use the Eco Tools to blend it into the skin and finally the chunky Nanshy to buff away any lines or marks. The palette above is messy but I didn't see the point in cleaning it just for a photo because this is how I am, I'm trying to keep each post as real as possible. I mix the two shades on the actual palette and then apply to my face.  


Cheeks 

Clinique Pop Blush || I wasn't always a blusher fan but the Clinique Pop Blushes changed that in 2014. This is the Ginger Pop shade which is a gentle rosy pink tone that's very natural on the cheeks but buildable. I use the Real Techniques brush and apply in a circular motion - as you can see the tips of the brush are now tinged pink. 


Eye Base 

Benefit Stay Don't Stray || I have no ideas where this sample came from but it's the light/medium shade and I was so grateful to have this in my sample arsenal. I am one of those who finds their shadows migrate into the creases of their eyes, even after applying primers, serums and the sheerest eyeshadow they tend to disappear. I actually tried this out a few days before starting as I didn't want to apply and ultimately wear an additional product on the day if it wasn't going to work, you know what? It kept my shadows in place all day. Keeping in mind that I wore more eyeshadow on the day and dealing with crazy weather and central heating I expected to find my eyeshadow had moved come dinner time but nope, it was still the same as it had been that morning. I will be purchasing a full size of this product. 

Hard Candy Eyeshadow || This colour is Butterscotch. You don't really see Hard Candy anymore and I found this by surprise in my stash. The packaging is awesome as you slide up the heart to open it, the shadow also is so pigmented and dare I say it, out performs any of my neutral MAC shadows. I applied this over the Stay Don't Stray and before applying the PUR to give myself a completely neutral base - as a stand alone eyeshadow this would work also if you were looking for a completely nude eye. 

PUR Minerals Trio || 3 gorgeous wearable shades that can be worn together or singly. The shades work as a base, colour and smoky shade but I actually wear the lightest all over the lid as a colour and then use the darkest shade as a liner. However, for my work wear look I needed something a bit more sophisticated so wore Allure (lightest) all over from the eyelid to the brow bone, then topped the eyelid area only with Icon (fine shimmery neutral gold beige) and then added Fame (matte brown with fine gold shimmer) to the eye socket and as a liner. This trio is really pigmented so works well at covering my eyelids as I have thin skin so my veins show and of course there's the differences in skin colour and tone around the eye. FYI this is on sale at the moment from £20 to £8.99. 

I applied all eyeshadows using my super old Virgin Vie brush. 


Final Touches 

Balance Eye Cream || OK so you put this onto those frown lines right at the start, before I head out the door I apply a teeny amount to the crows feet again and dab it gently into the skin - I find it refreshes me right before heading out of the door. Crazy, yes! but it works. 

Laura Geller Inkwell Gel Liner || Pull out the top to find the little applicator brush, the gel-cream liner is a deep aubergine which applies really nice and doesn't slide about, I of course didn't want a purple liner for my first day so I applied the Inkwell liner and then topped with PUR Minerals Fame (darkest) eyeshadow using the squint end brush - the results was a dark liner that left my lashes looking fuller and darker (the shadow fills the gaps between liner and lash) with a hint of purple in certain lights. 

Benefit They're Real Mascara || You just can't beat this lash boosting, blacker than black mascara. 

Shavata Double End Brow Pencil || Each side of this pencil has a different colour and the two colours here are Dusk and Dawn. I love that there's the two because you can fill in your brows so they look natural with the beginning of my brows being lighter I can use the Dawn end and the tail of my brows is always done in Dusk. Again this allows you to fill the gaps but leaves you looking so natural that no-one will ever know. 

Inika Brow Pencil || This is the Brunette Beauty shade of pencil and it comes with a sharpener on the lid. While this is a 'brow' pencil (and a very good one at that) I use it as a liner because it's so pigmented but doesn't look fake. I do use this for my brows but I've come to love Shavata so Inika has been reserved for liner duties, it's especially good for lower lashes too. 

Burt's Bees Tinted Balm || I'm definitely more of a tinted balm woman purely for because I can reapply without a mirror and I'm left feeling more comfortable throughout the day. The two shades I use are Petunia which is a pretty pink shade and Hibiscus which is a purple toned rosy pink. 

Tom Ford White Patchouli || Although I've been known to blind buy fragrances before I wasn't 100% confident with this Tom Ford one purely because it's so expensive. I'm a huge lover of patchouli scents but sometimes they just don't translate which is why I purchased the sample first off. What I will say is this patchouli scent is so much more than I could have ever hoped for, it's simply breathtaking with notes such as white flowers, patchouli, peony, bergamot, jasmine, rose, coriander and ambrette seed. The resulting fragrance is a earthy confident impact with a gentle feminine dry down - it's perfect for those moments where you want to feel empowered and in control. P.S Tom Ford Amber Absolute is amazing too! 

Glasses || These are my red Tommy Hilfiger prescription glasses which I wear all the time - I purchased them a few years back because I was straining my eyes and causing lots more fine lines *grrr*, I hated my glasses at that time as they just didn't fit and eventually I made another appointment but this time with Specsavers. I now won't go anywhere else because they agreed that the last shop (won't name names but it was a private local brand) didn't check that the glasses fitted which made my frames pretty useless. I have quite close eyes and need a petite frame which is why these slight cat eye look frames suit me. 

These Hilfiger frames are so comfortable and because I can wear them I definitely feel that these are one of the best anti-ageing gadgets around, after all I'm no longer squinting to see things - so - if you are suppose to wear your glasses then remember to do it! 

This style's not available but the newer Hilfiger frames in a similar colour and style can be found here (link). Hopefully this lot has inspired you to go for a put-together, natural look. Do you have any favourite work suitable cosmetics?
