#SNAPSTAR Dolls Review – #ad

#SNAPSTAR Dolls Review – #ad

*#ad – We were gifted a #SNAPSTAR gift set for the purpose of this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own. 

 

#SNAPSTAR are the dolls that every young girl wants to get their hands on. They’re all about beauty, music, fashion, photography and design. They are influencer dolls and they know what’s hot and what’s not! Our girls love their dolls, but #SNAPSTAR are something else. They’re modern, cool and offer our girls hours of fun! You can pre-order now exclusively at Smyths and these dolls will be in stock from May 20th. You can check online or in your local store for more details.

Who are the #SNAPSTAR Dolls?

They are the bloggers, vloggers and selfie takers that everyone loves. They each have different characters to suit each member of their audience. Each of the dolls have different passions too, including travel, the environment and interior design. There really is a #SNAPSTAR doll for everyone! Here’s a little look into each #SNAPSTAR personality we received;

Aspen –

This doll has a lively character, one that makes us think she’s always on the go. She loves to travel and wants to take her follower along for the ride. This doll is also an interior design enthusiast – collecting treasures to put on show from all over the world!

Izzy –

This girl is green! She’s into the environment and is passionate about recycling. She’s a crafter and she doesn’t let any material go to waste!

Echo –

The easiest going of all the #SNAPSTAR dolls. She’s a hair and make-up pro and it’s her make-up tutorials that have made her into a social media star!

The #SNAPSTAR STUDIO APP –

One of the best things about the #SNAPSTAR range is the STUDIO APP that runs alongside it. This app lets you customise the way each of the dolls look, by changing their make-up, hairstyle and even the colour of their eyes. You can also change the accessories each doll wears and add different background to the images, creating the perfect photo shoot. The app is available to download on both Android and iOS. It’s super simple to use, our girls have loved changing the look of their dolls both physically and virtually.

The verdict –

These dolls are have definitely been a huge hit in our house. Both girls love that you can swap and change the way the dolls looks, even down to their hairstyles. What I love most about the #SNAPSTAR range is that these products have so many different dimensions. They can create different looks, set up a photo shoot, swap and change accessories and even move to the app when they feel like doing something a little different. I’m not exaggerating when I say that both of our girls have already had hours of fun with their #SNAPSTAR gift set. It’s make buying for special occasions much easier for us too, as adding to their collection is sure to put a smile on their faces.

Mums: Make the Most of Your Wardrobe with Dress Alterations!

Mums: Make the Most of Your Wardrobe with Dress Alterations!

With the hectic day to day life that is being a mum, it may not always be easy to feel fabulous in the clothes you wear. Plus, like me, you may not have as much time to dress up to the nines as you used to, which means that every opportunity you do get to feel glamorous is golden.

The side effect of these rare opportunities to glam up, however, is that dresses that used to fit like a dream may not feel quite as right a few months or years down the line. Or maybe you’re still hanging onto that one gorgeous dress that has never felt quite right but you can’t bear to give to the charity shop. This is where dress alterations come in!

Dress Alterations: Make Every Dress Count

A dress alterations professional can make the right changes to your dress to ensure it fits nicely and feels comfortable, improving your confidence as well as your style. From simple repairs to more in-depth alterations (such as reshaping the neckline or shortening/lengthening the dress), the right seamstress or boutique can help you really make the most of your clothes.

Feel Post-Pregnancy Perfect with Dress Alterations

The body goes through lots of changes during and after pregnancy; your body will generally go back to its ‘normal’ state post-pregnancy, but naturally changes may remain so you might find that your clothes fit a little differently to before. This is a time where a good dress alterations services comes in handy! Choosing to alter dresses and other wardrobe items instead of donating them and having to buy new will save you money and let you keep the dresses that have always made you feel fantastic.

Dress Restyling – Revamp Your Wardrobe

Of course, there’ll always be times when a dress just doesn’t excite you anymore and simply lingers in the back of your wardrobe. Dress alterations can help with this too; it’s possible to totally restyle a dress using alterations to the point where it feels completely new. Plus, restyling a dress will often make it a unique, individual piece that you won’t find on the high street. No more embarrassing incidences of wearing the same thing to the same event!

They’re super comfortable –

One of the best thing about hoodies and sweatshirts is that they are super comfortable. If you know you’re going to have a long day, or even if you just like a bit of comfort in your life. A nice warm sweater is definitely the way to go.  Whether you invest in a pull over hoodie, or the zip up style they’re certain to be your go to item of clothing when it’s time to have a bit of down time with the guys!

They make life easy –

Heading into the Spring, hoodies are the ideal investment to make your life as easy as possible. They make travelling simple for those that have to commute on a regular basis, as they are small enough to pack into your bag. Whilst also being warm enough to protect you from the unpredictable weather of Spring! They are a grab and go garment, that allow you to do just that.

They’re bang on trend –

Finally and most importantly, you need a hoodie in your life because they are a men’s fashion essential. The practicality, versatility and coolness of them means that your wardrobe will be bang on trend for the season ahead. I mean, how many guys do you know that don’t own one? Go on treat yourself, you won’t regret it!

Men’s Fashion – Looking Good without Breaking the Bank

Men’s Fashion – Looking Good without Breaking the Bank

Before Hubs and I had children we would often spend the weekends hitting the shops. We both worked full time and so loved to treat ourselves to some new threads every once in a while! Fast forward a few years and two children later, and heading into town every weekend isn’t at the top of our priority list.

Shopping these days has to be convenient. With two girls in tow, walking around the shops and heading for a late lunch lacks the fun and relaxation that it used to. We’ve found that heading to the shops that we know will have quality clothes, without us having to spend hours searching for the wears that Hubs likes, so much easier. There just isn’t the time to peruse over scores of shops, so these days we only use tried and tested places!

However much things might have changed since our children came along, Hubs does still like to look good. So we’ve found the perfect shops that offer great menswear choices, without breaking the bank. Here are a few favourites, that you’re sure to love too!

Tesco –

This one is super handy as they stock a good range of clothing and there’s a store around every corner. We’ve found Tesco particularly useful for smart work clothes, they always have a nice cut and they certainly don’t cost the earth. Tesco is useful for when you need to get a few groceries along the way too, all items under one roof is a definite bonus!

River Island –

Hubs is a big fan of River Island, especially when looking for going out clothes. They have a good range that are bang on trend, this one is my go to store when it comes to buying gifts for him. One of the best things about this one is that is stocks everything from clothes, to shoes and even accessories. Perfect for a quick, all-round shop when you have the kids in tow!

Primark –

Primark is our go to place for Hubs’ casual clothes. They offer a great range of clothes that are perfect for everyday, wear and tear use! The beauty of Primark is that their super cheap price tag almost makes them ‘throwaway’. When you know you’re going to need clothes that may get worn out or dirty, items from here are definitely fit for the job!

 

What are your go-to menswear stores?
