A couple of weeks ago the lovelies at Flamingo Gifts sent me a few bits and bobs to try out and share with you guys that pop by every now and then and read what I have to say about life, beauty and general chit chat – you get the gist.
The items that I received are things that I can use every day and so far have had a lot of fun with each one. Before I get started I cannot recommend Flamingo Gifts highly enough for their personal touch to gifts and wonderful customer services. Check them out on their Website, Twitter and Instagram.
Now with the introductions out of the way on to the fabulous bits I am using.
As most of you know (if you don’t check my Instagram!) I love my dog and the Mr’s dog too and this little make up bag was just perfect for me. However I don’t wear make up to work so I use this little beaut for my keys, oyster card and random bits of change which is great. It sits in most of my handbags without taking up too much space and saves me digging in my bag for those little essentials.
Frog Shower Cap – £4.50 down to £3.82
When I was a little girl I always remember my mum buying a me a pair of wellington boots with frogs eyes on the toes of each boot. There are so many cute shower caps to choose from but this one jumped out at me and I am so glad it did.
For the price it is great quality and considering I have quite a large head it fits very well (even when my hair is au natural!). I tend to use this particular shower cap when I am leaving a conditioner in for a while as it has no lining and can be washed out without having a bad effect on the cap.
Recycled Lucky Buddha Beer Glass – £9.99 down to £8.49
This choice was made purely for himself as he likes quirky things like this and a buddha beer glass – let’s face it what is more quirky than that! He doesn’t really drink beer but it’s cool nevertheless.
Freaking Organised Sticky Notes – £3.99 down to £3.39
This is a bit of an obvious one! Being the sort of person who likes to write a list of lists of lists this sort of thing is perfect for my Filofax – all I need now is the time to be creative!
Ted Baker Coral Touchscreen Pen – £16.99 down to £14.44
Always nice to have a fancy pen and one that doubles up as a stylus is always a positive right. The pen itself is beautiful to write with and I use it mostly for my list writing and organising my diary instead of writing my notes at the end of a shift! For long sets of writing I prefer a pen that has a grip and is a bit thicker as it doesn’t make my hands seize up as quickly so this one is perfect for those short stints of writing.
