The Casdon Supermarket Till

 My kids love imaginative play in an array of many different forms but one of their favourite activities is to play shop.

Heaven knows they’ve seen me in the supermarket enough times to be able to replicate what happens when you go shopping!

I was kindly send a Casdon Supermarket Till complete with all of the accessories to allow my kids the chance to play out their roles thanks to its range of fun, realistic features.



(Basket not included)

The Casdon shopping till has been created for children aged 18 months to 6 years, though my almost 7 year old really enjoys using it so I personally wouldn’t put an age limit on it.

On the other end of the spectrum, its large, soft touch buttons are perfect for younger, less agile fingers to use so it’s a real crown pleaser whatever your child’s age or ability.



The till comes complete with a touch sensitive screen, microphone, scanner, working calculator, opening cash till and a chip and pin feature, offering a hyper-realistic play experience.

It also comes with a set of paper notes and plastic coins (hence why not suitable for under 18 months) along with a selection of plastic groceries from well-known brands.

It is this level of attention to detail that my kids really love with this set, as the items looks like real food you’d find on a supermarket shelf!



The till itself is brilliant.

 It has a real working microphone (which gets massively over used in our house!) as well as beeping sounds when you enter numbers and a ring when the cash tray pops out.

It works like a real calculator too which is just brilliant for helping my son with his counting and maths.



Similarly, the coins and notes are great for helping children to understand money and the value of products as well as with addition and subtraction but in such a fun way that they don’t even realise that they are actually learning while they’re playing.

My two can while away hours engaging in this form of roleplay and thoroughly enjoy the interactive nature of the till while I enjoy being able to help teach them about money and counting.



Even when I’m being charged £17 for a lemon…

The Casdon Supermarket Till is a high quality, playful, learning resource which will engage your child for hour upon hour of roleplay fun.



The Casdon Supermarket Till is available now online from Amazon and costs just £16.79.

Urban Decay Stoned Vibes

 Urban Decay’s new Stoned Vibes palette is simply one of the most beautiful palettes I’ve ever seen.

Inspired by the timeless beauty of crushed gemstones it boasts a host of opulent, sumptuous shades to dazzle and delight.



Housed within the most captivating compact complete with mirror and dual ended brush, the packaging has been designed to resemble a stone which has been cracked open to reveal a brilliant and dazzling display of natural crystals and gemstones.

The contents perfectly compliment this theme as once you open the lid you are presented with a sensational treasure of shimmering shades that are beautifully speckled with real tourmaline block bad energy and elevate your look.



Pure elegance to behold, it is like discovering your very own treasure chest of sparkling, shimmery jewels.

There is not a single shade within this palette that looks out of place and each and every one has something special to offer.



Good Karma: This shade is a soft, neutral matte

Jade: Marbleized, soft shimmery jade

Opal Aura: Pinky-blue, silver iridescent bright shimmer

Tigers Eye: A rich, warm copper gold marble

Vibes: Soft pinky-brown shimmer

Antidote: A warm orange matte



Hexed: A deep, warm, rich matte brown

Bloodstone: A rich, warm brown with green and white iridescent shimmer

OJO: A bright, vivid sparkly rich blue

Raw Energy: Soft Amythest purple with shimmer

Meditate: Soft shimmery brown

Third Eye: A cool, richly deep brown



Each and every shade is finely milled, creamy, silky soft and offers an intense colour pigment.

Four earthy mattes have been paired with eight prismatic shimmers to allow you to create an almost endless combination of resplendent looks.


Each of the stone-like speckled eyeshadows are designed to give off good energy and deliver stunning, shimmering colour payoff without any flaking or fallout so commonly associated with sparkly shadows.

Each and every shade is beautifully rich in texture and provides effortless pigment which packs a punch. 

Wonderfully velvety and easy to build, begin your look with a matte to create an all-over colour base to contour and shape.

Create an exquisite eye by applying the marbelized shades with your finger or mist your brush with their All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray before dipping into shadow for a foiled, wet-look finish.

The possibilities are expansive and allow you to create an array of sumptuous, rich, dazzling looks which last all day long.



I actually find that the shadows look even better when worn for a number of hours as the natural oils in your skin combine with the shadows to offer an even more glossy, powerful look.

 Urban Decay’s Stoned Vibes palette is available now and costs £46.

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum Suprême

 Good Girl Eau de Parfum Suprême is the intensely seductive and intoxicating new fragrance from Carolina Herrera.

Featuring a daring and bold new formula, Good Girl has been reimagined to encourage us to connect with our rebellious side!

Fearless, vibrant and multi-faceted, the notes within Good Girl Suprême seek to allow us to embrace all the complex facets of our own personalities, encouraging us to stand out, stand tall and stand proud.



The eye catching and captivatingly elegant Good Girl Stiletto has been redesigned to capture the essence of the Supreme scent and features a wonderfully dazzling covering of sparkling gold and blue glitter.

The contrast of the lightness of the sparkle vs the darkness of the stiletto is an outward reflection of the play on notes captured within the fragrance, where light and shade compliment one another, creating spectacular results.


Good Girl Suprême is a wonderfully deep, bewitching scent which is perfect for the darker winter months and the forthcoming party season thanks to its intoxicating and heady composition.

Top notes of gourmand berries and exotic Egyptian jasmine create a decadent and delicious opening experience before heart notes of Tuberose and creamy, intense Tonka Beans wrap their arms around you, enveloping you in their warm embrace.



Finally, base notes of seductive and sparkling Vetiver burst into life resulting in a modern twist, creating a captivating, provocative and alluring scent to enchant any wearer and those round them.

I am a huge fan of the original Good Girl but I think that Suprême may have just pipped it to the post I my affections.



I just adore its glamorous, iconic flacon that radiates glamour and on a more basic level, looks simply stunning on your dressing table.

The fragrance is enchanting, intense and magnetising, drawing people close to take in its heady, intoxicating aroma.



It is everything I could wish for in an evening scent and injects an element of bold self-confidence into the everyday.

Carolina Herrera’s Good Girl Eau de Parfum Suprême is available now from The Perfume Shop and costs £55 for 30ml.
