Review: Glitterify Me Glitter Tattoo Kits

Glitterify Me My First Glitter Tattoo

Marianna was super impatient to try out the glitter tattoo kit we were sent to review. The range offers a variety of kits designed to help you create your very own glitter tattoos. Being new to the process - and dubious of my artistic ability! - I went for the 'My First Glitter Tattoo'. Even I couldn't mess that up, surely?

Okay, I still lacked faith in myself, but I was so pleasantly surprised when I actually got started. You can't go wrong. Seriously. The most difficult part of the process was getting Marianna to decide which design she wanted. 

My first glitter tattoo kit 

Design chosen, you simply peel and stick it into place. That done you use the bottle of glue provided to apply a thin layer - it's just like applying nail varnish, but without having to worry about staying in the lines...

After you've given the glue a few minutes you then get to apply the glitter. Marianna decided she wanted half of the seahorse to be blue, and the other half to be red. Again, I was really pleased by how well the glitter stuck to the glue. I had kind of been expecting to end up with glitter absolutely everywhere, but instead the clean up just involved a tissue.


Finally it was time for the moment of truth. As I peeled off the sticker I braced myself for the kind of disappointed whinging that only comes with the end results of the 'we can do it ourselves at home' philosophy. But! 

Just look at this seahorse:

Marianna loved it, and I was so impressed I gave myself a lizard tattoo. Even his little claws (fingers? whatever they are) are defined. ♥

The other thing to note is that the tattoos really are waterproof. You can exfoliate them away easy enough, but just being in and out of water - or even washing with soap - will do little to remove it, meaning you can keep them for days without needing to reapply. 

So, final thoughts: These kits are awesome. Whether you're the super crafty kind who wants to make their own stencils, or the totally craft averse who just wants something to turn out like the promo picture, these glitter tattoo kits have you covered. Our kit came with dozens of designs, four colours of glitter, the glue and an application brush - aka everything you need. And the process is so simple kids can even do it themselves and achieve great results. 

Check the available sets out for yourself at Glitterify Me. There is free UK shipping on all products, and right now there is also a sale on. The kit we tried makes up to 25 tattoos; so at the current sale price of £13.56, that's less than 55p per tattoo!

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale.

It had blue and red lights, and appeared to be moving towards them. They watched for a few minutes and the next day reported the sighting to UK UFO. FM: " I was up really late and i needed to use the bathroom so i got up and my side of the bed is by the window, so i had a look out. i saw an object shaped like a typical space ship would look, but it had blue and red lights and appeared to be coming towards me. i watched it for a while and then left to use the bathroom and by the time i had returned (5 minutes later) the mysterious lights had almost disappeared into the distance.
