Beavers FAB camp

I was really glad to be asked to write about a recent Beaver Scout camp for our District website, however having shared the link I then realised that unfortunately it had not survived the passage from my computer to the website very well. So here is the original article with out the edits made by the district website!

Beauty can be weird

It appears that in the world of beauty the weirder the idea the better. From having your left over waste washed out of your body via a plastic tube to rubbing cream into your skin which contains snail slime…there is no depths the beautiful people wont go to ensure their beauty continues. Whether it’s the yummy mummy hoping to remain as yummy as they were before pregnancy hormones or the ageing actress fighting off the ingenues on their way up their virtual ladder, women (and men) of all ages are always looking for the next big thing which will make them sparkle.

Discount your Christmas with Voucheroo

boxe-yellow

With Christmas fast approaching, believe me it will be here before you know it, I am always on the look out for ways to make such an expensive time of year more reasonable. Brits are expected to spend between £300 and £400 on presents this year and although that is less that previous years it is still a large amount of disposable cash to try to find! With a large family and lots of Secret Santa’s this year,  I seem to have more and more presents to buy every year without the same increase to my wages.

With Christmas fast approaching I am spending a lot of time searching the internet for gifts and information on certain items. My son has asked for a laptop and to be honest although I spend a lot of time on my Google Chromebook I actually have no idea about laptops. In fact I am so useless when it comes to technology that I am forbidden from buying any without consolation. I wanted to have some input in the choosing process though and came across The Sensible Review website which has reviews covering all sorts of products.

The article about the Best Budget Laptops was full of information and the author even loves Chromebooks so I know they will be able to help in choosing something for my son.  Full of all the important bits to know about any laptop you should be considering without being bogged down with the technological lingo. They offer a list of options plus the laptop which they consider to be the best of the budget laptops this year.You can click on each title and read what they think of its plus and minus points and also offer you a link to see how much it is on Amazon.

The whole website is easy to negotiate and full of great articles and reviews, I know where my one stop shop for reviews will be from now on.

Do you use reviews when looking for products? Do you do your research? I would love to know your views.

With the ever-increasing popularity of ‘Netflix and chill’ it is becoming more and more common for people to binge watch TV programmes, to watch multiple seasons one after the other. It is almost like a drug that one becomes addicted to, no other programmes are watched until you have completed watching each and every episode ever made of said programme.

7 years ago when I had my son I didn’t feel that there was any support networks which I fit into, baby groups didn’t do it for me, I didn’t have a friendship circle full of mummies and I didn’t do well with organised fun. With the increased use of social media, groups of people who never would have met before are getting together and forming spaces where they can feel at home.

If like me you enjoy a bit of pampering and like to look good but don’t really have the patience for making an effort or the time for a daily face then you should look into something semi permanent.

Move over Ray-Ban there’s a new “Aviator” on the block – Bigatmo Review

Art on the nose

Aviation is not merely an industry it is a world unto itself, a lifestyle if you will;  a lifestyle with class, panache and a certain amount of swagger. They have their own style and it could give even the most die-hard fashionistas a run for their money. However this style is not just about looking good, accessories especially, play an important part in the pilots day-to-day prowess. None so important as the perfect sunglasses, and for perfect look no further than Bigatmo
