• I’m lazy. I wash my face with water in the shower then put moisturiser with spf on (15 in winter, 30 in summer). I do that when I get up (morning or evening depending on shift).

    Don’t do anything at night. Barely wear make up but when I do, I do take it all off.

    I’m 30 in July and don’t have any wrinkles, I’m told I look 22.

    Other than that, I…[Read more]

  • My mother was a cleaner all her adult life, mainly in offices, but also in “posh people’s houses”.

  • I’m surprised your foodbank wouldn’t take unopened items, all our local ones cry out for nice biscuits/chocs alongside the long life and tinned stuff. Maybe try any smaller ones? Church run maybe?

    I’ll be taking a tin of chocs to work, where they’ll disappear, or failing that, there’s a couple of shops that I’m friendly with the staff, so they’ll…[Read more]

  • Basically pack what you think you might need but be aware you may not want or need it!

    Nipple cream if you don’t need it can be used for other things. And don’t let your oh buy pads, I got some massive tena pads that were too huge to be comfortable. Although padding is multifunctional for a few days after.
