Now those who have been following my blog for a while now will be aware that I adore this company, I have reviewed them twice here and here and when they asked if I would like to test out their latest product I of course said yes, well Amelia said yes, I just returned the email.

Nail a Peel is basicsally the same product as the Gel a Peel but designed to be used to create nail art.
Inside the pack, which was the Deluxe Colour kit, you will find three nail wheels to create your fun artwork onto, Five gel polishes in different colors, a collection of pretty confetti and glitter to add to it along with a plastic mold to create cute bows and other things you can attack onto the fake nail and other bits that you would find in a standard pack (design sheet etc) along with it all is some handy nail adhesive stickers to help with placing them onto the nail so there is no fighting with the sticky nail glue.

I will start off saying this are really fiddly to do, so its more of an older child’s toy, Amelia struggled to create anything so asked me to design her something and surprise her, and I am not the most steady handed person so this was a bit of a task but I feel like I did a good job in creating something pretty for her. I just used the applicator that you attach onto the top of the gel polish rather than the brush applicator because of the thickness of the gel, this was a little difficult to do.

Leaving them to dry over 24 hours I do not think they look that bad! I would love to see someone who is talented in nail art give them a go and see what they can create with the product, we popped them off and stuck them onto her nails using the stickers and as you can see I have one very happy Amelia.

We really enjoyed playing around with this toy and while there is now glitter everywhere its been a fun little addition to our craft box and I plan on getting some more false nails to create more in future, but I feel that it is best suited for much older children who have a steady hand and the patience to sit and create on such a small surface.
If you are interested in seeing what else is in the Nail a Peel range then follow this handy little link here, however I will also add that once the gel has fully dried it, if you are not careful can peel off but I guess that’s the beautiful of the product is that you can peel things off and start again with a new creation.

Until next time.

We are always asked what we wanted to do as a child for when we grew up into an adult and went out into the scary world of working, some of us had a dream job, the one thing that since childhood knew what they wanted to do and made it their complete life goal to achieve that job.. My husband for an example has always wanted to work in the gaming industry, whether it was making a game or even writing about them and while hes come along way from his quiet beginnings he now owns and writes on his own gaming website with a group of other fantastic writers and video editors and is making waves in the gaming industry. (His site is B3 if you are curious) but I could never pin point what I’ve always wanted to do, I couldn’t find something that would be the one thing I would dream about doing and I find that a little sad, why couldn’t I pick something? I simply couldnt even find the answer to that.

My children have some pretty good dream jobs, Amelia said to me that she wanted to be a doctor, and not just any kind of doctor but a brain one and Kai has said that he wants to be a race driver, clearly his obsession with cars sparks that dream and I am more than willing to help them get that job as long as they both are aware of how much work goes into it all, which I feel has been the biggest issue with me finding something that I truly enjoy doing.

I guess that I sit here writing this blogs that perhaps my new dream job is what I am doing now, writing.. I am very worried that I will be floating through life not knowing still when I am much older..

I asked about with other wonderful bloggers to see what their dream was and if they had achieved it, or perhaps they have found something way out of their comfort zone and enjoy it more than they expected.

 “I grew up aspiring to be an architect, then an interior designer, did a graphic design degree wanting to be an illustrator and then grew a love for photography through blogging. It’s always stayed within the creative industry so they’ve always stemmed from the creative spark I have but it’s crazy how your goals constantly change!” – Gemma 

“When I was a kid I really wanted to be either a teacher or a vet, now I’m a full time blogger and I don’t want to be anything else! It’s perfect for me. My daughter says she wants to be a blogger when she grows up too” – Louise

“I have always wanted to work in care, if that be midwifery or being a carer for the elderly i dont care!” – Rebecca 

I always really wanted to be a Mummy! However now I am one I’ve come to realise that I NEED to work alongside it just to feel a little more human so having my blog makes me feel like I’ve won the lottery as they’re two “dream jobs”” – Georgina 

“As a child I changed my mind a lot! From wanting to be a firefighter to a radio DJ! I think I never knew what I wanted to be right through to adulthood. Now, by chance, I’ve become a full time blogger and it’s absolutely my dream job to work for myself. I hope it continues”Victoria

“My mum said at one point I wanted to be a teacher or a policewoman, but I have a vivid memory of spending ages designing shoes! I was about 8 and used to take a little notebook to school to sketch my designs. I’m now a fashion designer!” – Alice

and as for me, I said above that I just didn’t know what I wanted to do, according to my mother I wanted to be a dental nurse but the thought of dealing with other peoples smell mouths is now officially off putting for me, I am fully trained to work with children, but now that I have my own I cannot think about working with them and then coming hope and repeating it.

I know at one point in my life I will find something that speaks to me, but for now, I am very happy with being a mummy and a homemaker.. perhaps that is after all my dream job?

Until next time

This weeks photo comes from my day over my mums house, Mr S needed to do some much needed catch up on some writing that hes been doing for his website and because the children can be such a handle and very noisy I asked my mum if we could come to her house for the day and let him get on with it.

and he did..

but I took my camera and snapped away lots of photos of the children and her garden/house

These are Cyclamens that sit in her conservatory, if you follow me on my instagram you would’ve seen this photo already but I love how clear and clean everything looks.

Today we are off to my aunts house for a meal, expect anything I take today to end up in next weeks photograph Sunday

Until next time

Another month has gone and it means another little roundup of the exciting goodies in March’s Glossybox, I decided because of the fact that last months had run into March itself that I would wait until April to do the next one just so that I wouldn’t have two Roundup posts in the same month, let me know if you like this idea or if I should switch back to doing it in the same month..

This months box is all about spring, which believe it or not, despite the snow and rain, is right around the corner, heres what I got in March’s Glossy Box

MUDMASKY Sleep Repare Renewal Nourishing Mask – Now I am not the biggest fan of masks, I think its got something to do with the fact that I have very little time to sit down and let them do their work, but this one works through the night, so when you are doing nothing besides sleeping and dreaming, this mask goes to work and looks after your skin, its got a very fresh feeling when applied to the skin and I really like how its made my skin feel.

 

ORYZA BEAUTY – Warm Nude Lipstick (Shade ARWA)– You know me and my feeling of lipsticks, I find some really hard to match with my pale skintones but a bit like my mum I find nudes a little more appealing and this one with a subtle pink shade is really nice on my lips, it doesnt make my lips go dry like most matte shades and is an all round favorite of mine, into the makeup bag it goes!

 

FIGS & ROUGE – Soft Focus Pore Perfect HD – I think one of the best things about Glossybox is that you can try new things which you wouldn’t normally pick up in stores and I would never have picked up this Pore Perfect cream, I am endlessly trying to help my poor skin and I have found this has been wonderful for it so much so I have almost finished the tube.

UNIVERSAL BEAUTY – Secret Flush – I have started to really love liquid blushes at the moment, mainly because they have a duel uses and can be also used as a lip stain which is what I have been using it for, its a lovely pink shade that isnt to in your face and with the size its perfect to put into the handbag or in my case, nappy bag for when you are out and about.

MEG COSMETICS – Good Night PM Mask – Masks like this make me laugh, I see them all over Instagram with these models and makeup artists on there using them before they place a thick layer of makeup on their face.. the last time I had a face mask I got Mr S to put it on which he he sat and complained about but I tried this one and I honestly like how cold it is, I want to try the AM mask for the day as my skin on my face can get really dry after I wash my hair and I feel like this is something that could sooth my skin, it left my face feeling so cool and fresh feeling which when you are off to bed is a wonderful feeling.

And that’s what I got in this months Glossybox! if you want to give the box a try which I recommend you do, then you can sign up here the next months sneak peaks are making me so excited for when it turns up at my door!

Until next time
