If you’re like me, you will be completely unprepared for Mother’s Day. Or Christmas. Or birthdays. Or anniversaries…any important date basically. Mother’s Day seems to creep up on me every year and I am left panic buying anything I can get my hands on. But this year I am going to get major brownie points – thanks to Boots. They sent me these brilliant gift sets and therefore Little Anne won’t go empty handed (I will be getting her something else as well, I’m not a total cheapskate!) Read on to see what’s included in these Mother’s Day gift ideas box sets.
Coppafeel! came to my attention last year when they teamed up with Birchbox to raise awareness of this great charity and cause. As you may guess from the name, Coppafeel! is a breast cancer awareness charity whose campaigns aim to offer no-nonsense advice and information to women.
Coppafeel! have partnered with ‘I Love…’ to be the first cosmetics company to release a shower creme and bubble bath with breast cancer awareness symptom labels to the packaging. They have released this gel as part of their #ShowerHijack campaign and I LOVE it. The idea is that you are already naked, already rubbing your skin while you’re getting clean, so why not use that time to quickly check your boobs for symptoms and early warning signs? We should all be checking our boobs regularly and this gives us a little nudge in the right direction.
I have a bit of an obsession with nail varnish (I know that may be new and shocking information) but without proper nail care, there’s no point in spending money and time on beautiful nail varnishes and manicures.
Occasionally I find myself wandering the aisles in Boots or Superdrug and I knowing that I want something but I also knowing I won’t wear it very often. This is what happened with this nail varnish. I knew I wanted a baby blue polish but also knew that I’m not a huge fan of blue on me so wanted something good quality but cheap enough that it wouldn’t matter if I only wore it a handful of times. In those situations I usually go for Rimmel: their nail varnishes are great quality – long wearing, shiny, easy to apply, good brushes, plus they’re usually under a fiver. Perfect.
