Week Thirty Two

Hope everyone has had a productive week, I have been very busy buying clothes for our Holiday which is a week on Wednesday! I can’t wait now , so this week will probably drag! I never got down to a sixteen so I had to buy a wardrobe full of clothes good job I saved just in case!

Mine and the boys new togs for the hols!

Congrats to Blackpool Football Club for making it to the Play Off Finals again! We have one game standing between us and the Premiership and of all the teams in the Championship it has to be the Hammer, so come pool we believe , take the game too them and lets go back up!

This week I received my last glossybox, I decided to stop this month as most of the products were cremes or hair products and I was thinking this was more of a beauty box with makeup and polish samples , anyways £12 for a product your not happy with has to go, so here is what I got this month , it was a Au natural box which included beauty balm, lip sols, hair serum ,hand creme and an eye pencil!

I may have to take the boy to see this this week also looks very funny!

It has been a lazy time in the Procky house this week as you can see by the animals in the pic below!

Here are my photo’s for the 366 challenge!

One last thing come Man City you can do it and Good Luck this afternoon lets knock United of the top once and for all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It ‘s great having a car as when we had finished with the ice creams , we were going home or at least that is what the boys thought , not a lot they can do when they are in the car other than come along for the ride LMAO, anyways I wanted to go and have a look at Myrescough college near billsborrow it has a garden center called Plant world check the pics out below , we were there nearly 2 hours loved it even the boys enjoyed it!

Week Fourteen

WOW the first week in the new year is nearly over, how did that happen?

I spent most of this week cleaning up after the festivities, decorations down, freezing leftovers, eating leftovers, getting uniforms ready and still getting over the cold and back to work, it’s all over too quick for me.

I received my December glossybox, this time it was red instead of pink which was a lovely touch and it had some lovely gifts in it check the photo below

1. RITUALS Foaming Shower Gel (£6.50/200ml)

2. NOUVEAU LASHES Noir Mascara (£14.99/8g)

3. DEBORAH LIPPMANN Razzle Dazzle Mini Nail Varnish with Stripped-To-Go Sachet (£16/polish; £14/x6 removers)
4. CARGO COSMETICS Classic Lip Gloss (£10/full size)
5. FIRST AID BEAUTY (FAB) Face Cleanser (£13/141g) this product is also sold at boots.
I haven’t tried any of theses products yet so I can’t comment on them but looking forward to trying the foam shower gel and the nail polish.
The 366 Photographs a day challenge
I also joined a group called the 366 day challenge, it is where you have to take a picture a day and post it on one of your social media platforms, I have done a special collection for you all but you can look at what inspired me to take the photograph at my flicker, which is on the right of this page! This would normally be the 365 challenge trust me to do it in a leap year!
And the other day I got bored and went a photographing session involving the little members of my family so here is a montage of my favourite ones of them.
Bella the dog, Ali the cat and Boo the cat!

Week Eight

Just like to say 4 weeks today it will be Christmas day!!!!!!! Have you bought your presents yet? Have you written or posted any cards? the answer to these questions for me me is NO , i better get a wiggle on haven’t a clue what to buy people, I have been searching the Internet for inspiration but still have no ideas, why are men/boys harder to buy for than women/girls?

Anyways onto my week, quite an uneventful week really, spent most of it in work lots of overtime, I bought some more yes you guessed nail polishes, I also got two parcels one from Glossy box and one from America from a lovely girl called Amanda who has a nail lacquer business on Esty called Nerdlacquer,  a combination of my two favourite things Science fiction and Nail polish pure heaven. Check it out the polishes are fab trust me. Heres a pic of what I received and also someone hitched a ride with them, what a lovely touch.

I am going to swatch these later for my other blog Northern Nails they are very glittery.

Onto my next parcel, I received my November Glossy box this week, after reading everyones negative views I was a bit worried but I needn’t have been below is a review of what I received.

Leopard print Nail Wraps, Arbonne FC5 Hand creme, Monu Recovery balm, Dead Sea Salts, 2 Surge Lutens perfume samples.

These are Nail Rock Nail wraps , I probably wouldn’t go out and buy these as I like to paint my nails but I suppose that is the whole point of Glossybox, I received the Leopard print ones I will try these out on my nails and put a post up on my nail blog Northern Nails. These are meant to stay on your nails for 7 days on nails and 8 weeks on toes and won’t chip or stain the nail no drying time required.

Arbonne FC5 ultra hydrating hand creme, I can’t wait to use this, it smells yummy, it is meant to moisturize your hands leaving them smooth and refreshing.

This next item makes the box worth while on it’s own it retails at £16.95 full size and I got a full size one. It is meant to provide immediate relief to all skin types especially sensitive or stressed, I have very sensitive skin so i am intrigued by this statement watch out for another review after I have used it.

Dead Sea Spa Magik, dead sea salts, 2011 Beauty awards winner is a natural exfoliant that relieves dry skin, I will be using these as my pedicure routine as i am prone to dry skin on my toes, another review when I have tried them.

Last but not least

Suttens Lutens  : L’eau serge lutens and Vitriol d’Oeillet , I love getting perfume samples , i don’t go in to shops very often and the last thing I do is ask for samples and as most perfumes I smell make me sneeze it is great to be able to try them in my home, anyways saying that the Vitriol d’Oeillet was very strong too strong for me but the L’eau Serge Lutens was lovely and subtle both of theses scents are unisex.

Thats my week done time for a restful Sunday before another week of work and fun!
