Proud Mummy

This summer my daughter graduated from university with a 2:1 in Geography. We were two very proud parents at her graduation ceremony. 

I took a ton of different photos and this one is a favourite of hers. It was a spur of the moment one as we were walking back to the robe hirers. Heavily cropped as there were teenagers, beer cans and McDonald's wrappers on a lot of the grass lol. I do like it though. 

Her next step is teaching degree.

Glossybox July 2013

Just received my box for July. 

It's a seaside theme this month. 

The box itself is cheerful and fits the theme

A quick pic of the contents and I'll do a more in depth review once I've tried them out. 

Edited to add review:

This box contained - 

Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist - not my cup of tea at all as I prefer my hair sleek and straight, don't always achieve that but that's always the aim so I've given this to my daughter. 

Pukka Ayurveda Radiance Serum - smells gorgeous and is lovely on the skin but its rather pricey at £32 for 50ml. 

Coola Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 20 - I've only used this once but I love the effect it gives. It is tinted in a perfect shade for me, easy to soak in and most of all doesn't make my make up run down my face like most other products do in this crazy heat. 

Anatomicals Spray Misty For me - I've used this product probably more than recommended in this heat. It really cools down the skin. The scent isn't the best and more like furniture polish but its acceptable. 

Ciate paint pot in pocket money shade - I've heard so much about Ciate and I would have loved to get my hands on their advent calendar so I was delighted to get this in my box. I love the shade. It's much more wearable than some of the reds. 

There was also a chocolate in there but a certain little man had his eye on it so I didn't try that. 

All in all its an ok box. I'm not happy with the tousled hair stuff but I love the nail polish and the face spritz came at the perfect time.
