With Christmas right around the corner, most people have already started giving and buying gifts. Although the holidays are for the whole family to enjoy, it’s no secret that the kids look forward to the festivities the most. Toys are the most obvious and popular gifts given to children, but eventually, you’ll run out of toy ideas, and expanding their wardrobe (with children’s accessories) will undoubtedly come to mind.
- Beauty & Fashion
If you enjoy looking after your family, it is likely that you take great pride in their appearance. This is the ideal way for you to show the world how well your loved ones are taken care of. However, the stresses and strains of daily life can sometimes get in the way of keeping up appearances. Therefore, it is extremely important that you plan ahead. Instead of aiming for perfection, your goal should be helping your loved ones to feel cool and confident in everything they do. Below are four ways that you can get your family looking great.

If you have someone to buy for and you are not quite sure what beauty regime they have, or whether they have a favourite brand. A great option is grab a kit that has small versions, so they can test it and then buy the larger products. Pure Beauty have this “Dermalogica favourites kit” which is perfect for trialling.

I wish I had these cool fashion options open to me when I was younger. Not that I dressed myself at 5 years old! I discovered shops that I didn’t even realise sold childrenswear this month. I had fun choosing funky Autumn childrenswear items for the little ones and styling them up over half term. The children loved it too.
We live in a world where fashion trends are thrown in our faces constantly. Glossy magazines dictate what you should and shouldn’t wear with each coming season, and the ease of celebrities’ interaction with the public through social media sees followers attempting to imitate the look of their favorite models, musicians, actors, and socialites. It’s not all too surprising that sometimes we find it difficult to keep up. As soon as we purchase one fashion staple, the fad seems to have passed, and the item is cast aside as we chase the latest trend. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Why follow the crowd when you could have your own distinct, standout style? Perhaps Ralph Lauren put it best when he once said: “fashion is transient, trends come and go. I believe in style, not fashion”. Here’s everything you need to know about curating your own, individual style rather than relying on trends that come and go in what often feels like minutes.
What’s in a look? If in doubt, ask a celebrity. If beauty and looking the business are your stock in trade which fills your personal coffers to the brim, then facial acupuncture has understandably become the treatment of choice for the celebrity class, from actors to models to musicians.
The existence of fashion trends date back hundreds of years. They signified to show how much extra money and leisure time you had. They signified your level in society, suggested your connection to royal families, that sort of thing. It would begin with whatever the reigning party, king or queen, liked – and the faster you caught on and followed suit, the better it indicated you were to observant of their tastes.
To say I felt like a princess in my sparkly sequin dress from Quiz Clothing, is an understatement. I have never had an occasion where I could choose from an array of going out dresses, until earlier in July when I attended an awards ceremony. I felt like a million dollars! It’s amazing how your mood changes your whole appearance too, I was beaming from ear to ear.
You may recall last Summer I had a little rave about a new website I came across: Love the Sales. The site that lists fashion items, that are just in the sale! Well, I wanted to give you a little update because I think it's brilliant and you could grab yourself a bargain before the Summer holidays arrive – find your maxi dresses and a spare pair of shorts for the kids!
