Closing MIDNIGHT – win two beauty hampers worth £200!

 Yes, this your chance to win TWO beauty hampers (one for you, and one for your best friend: I KNOW!), together worth over £200. Remescar Eye Bags & Dark Circles cream only launched a few months ago here in the UK, and I’m a total convert; this little baby is never far away in the mornings, effectively hiding the sad tiredness that greets my January back-to-work self in the mirror. It works in just 2 minutes, and really...

£5 Christmas Stop-Motion Gift Box – Fab Fun & Easy For Kids

Make your own stop-motion Christmas story with the Sainsbury’s Story Studio app & animation kit Sainsburys thought we might like to try this kit out, and being as we’ve been making stop-motion clips for years I thought it was pretty much a no-brainer.

With less than a month to go, we’re all thinking about it now; I’ve even seen a few trees already going up in my Instagram feed (TOO EARLY people!). But if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that thinking about the preparations a little ahead saves time and head space as things gear up through December.

I have a new Art love – let me show you Desenio Posters
