If you’re in the UK, you’d have heard that England was able to raise £50k to fly a “flying Donald Trump manbaby balloon” around London… A total of £50k was raised, enough to take it from an idea to reality.

Now, I’m all about fun and games… I appreciate a joke as much as the next person and, yes, I did find the thing quite funny. But, when you think about it a little more seriously – in effect, we were able to raise £50k for a flying “manbaby” balloon in times when our NHS is on the brink of closure and our youths are out there ruining their futures by joining gangs.

Our society is a mess. Yet, all we do is complain. Could we not have raised £50k for the NHS? Could we not have raised another 50k (going towards the Sadiq Khan manbaby balloon) towards building a solid foundation for our youths; creating activities or programmes/courses for our youths to take up outside of school?

Why do we rely on the Gov. when we’ve just proven that we can raise the money ourselves? I can’t believe that we’re able to raise £100k in total for flying manbabies that will only be used in protest, but won’t put our money where our mouths are to make a more permanent and long-lasting difference to our society.

I am not a partypooper. I’m just a realist. Complaining about our issues doesn’t eliminate them… Hard work and change does. I understand it’s just for a laugh, but there are families crying over loss of their friends/families while we’re laughing at flying manbabies. So, let’s help the people in suffering laugh with and out of joy rather than just focusing on ourselves and who we’re going to laugh at or mock.

As a society, we have proven we can singlehandedly raise enough money to make a difference. So, rather than spending the funds we are able to raise collectively on silly things, let’s put it towards our youths and/or health service. This will in turn protect our youths and give our life-threatening illness suffering peers, friends and relatives a better and longer future.

Superdrug is currently selling Victoria Secret fragrance mists for £12 and two for £18. Basically, buy one and get the other half price. I am the biggest lover of bargains, so I was there like: “you take cash or credit?”

I picked up the Mango Temptation and Romantic… Because, the name’s Mansour and… Oh, whatever! I like mangos. They’re my favourite fruits, and it’s a good job they smell nice too. Mango Temptation really smells like Summer. The thing I like about fragrance mists is that they don’t cling on to you or smell too overpowering. They’re delicate but their scents pack a brief punch.

Both Romantic and Mango Temptation smell like full-on fruit. So, if you like fruit and smelling of them, you’ll love these two. The sale means you can stock up now and give them away as stocking fillers later.

Would I buy them again? I mean, sure. I like Victoria and her secrets.

Romantic:

A sheer mist made to mix, blend with others , or use alone for a scent of pink petals and solar musk.

Mango Temptation:

A sheer mist made to mix, blend with others or use alone for a scent of mango nectar and hibiscus.

Expect to get hi’ on the ol’ biscus if you’re wanting to dabble in Mango Temptation – or experience something out-of-this-world – not even the solar (musk) system can predict if you’re looking to be more Romantic.

There are many varieties to choose from. But, Mango Temptation and Romantic were there and caught my eye differently.

I have arthritis and it’s something I’ve been dealing with for a while. Yes, I’m 26 – not 89. Although, my love for aqua aerobics means I’m already there… I’m a grandma before I even became a mum. SURPRISE! For you, and not me. I knew it was coming… I love pigeons, community centres and aqua aerobics. I’m an old soul. If anyone wants to find me an old-people’s home which has a room spare, comment below.

All sarcasm aside, it’s serious. My arthritis is very serious. It’s, in my opinion, the worst type of arthritis too… The kind where you literally can’t avoid it. I have reactive arthritis which basically means I get flare ups when my body suffers infection. When I came back from New York in February, I came back with a severe chest infection. My body doesn’t know how to fight it, so fluid starts filling up in my right knee. Not that my right knee can do ANYTHING for my chest… But, at least it tries. Good on my right knee for taking one for the team!

Anyway, as soon as my knee flares, it ends up debilitating me and making me sort of immobile. I’m not joking when I say on some occasions, I cannot walk on that leg at all. Like my knee trying to sort out my chest issues, I try to walk to get to work and/or other places but end up imitating a penguin. Waddling or limping there.

There was actually a moment where I crossed paths with a stranger who was limping too. He was having problems with his right knee also. Mad, right? We stopped, looked at each other before pointing straight at our knees and saying: “liability!”

I think that’s the best part of it, meeting people who also have knee ailments. You kind of bond over the fact that you can’t even walk on occasions. I’ll tell you what’s not the best part – going to check-ups or MRIs. I hope I never have to endure MRIs ever again. It’s like VR but showing you what it feels like after you die. Ain’t no one got time for that…

Is there a cure? Not getting infections. So, in a word, no there isn’t a cure.

Do I take any tablets for it? Yeah, an iPad. Hahaha! I want to die.

Today, I’m sharing the importance of cleaning your makeup brushes.

Usually, I just clean them with their special spray and a kitchen towel… But, as summer is here, I’m going to need to up my game and wash my brushes regularly to avoid getting #Spotnicks!

How does a girl like me wash her makeup brushes? With water and gentle hand-wash or shampoo. #BOSS! I then leave them to naturally dry. Look, the way I see it, I won’t even blow dry my hair… So, why would I go as far as to blow dry my makeup brushes? Exactly.

Alternatively, you can buy an actual makeup cleaner which looks like an air purifier…

OnDemand manufacturing may have just recently began growing in popularity, but serial entrepreneur Pablos Holman was cracking the market for years!

Holman, an American businessman, has long been manufacturing some eclectic tights on demand… Enter: Bombsheller!

The range of quirky, customizable leggings come in a range 10 sizes, and enable customers to choose from thousands of pre-selected designs (with the option to upload their own). Each pair is digitally printed, cut, sewn to shipped in as little as 24 hours…

“It took months for classical fashion business to become the final product,” reflects Pablos as his company Bombsheller continues to make waves in the “wearable technology” world.

The idea behind Bombsheller came when the computer expert [Pablos] decided that he wanted to break into the fashion market, whilst connecting it with his main passion, technology. “It will be the first programmable clothing factory,” Holman previously mentioned in an interview with The Independent.

Bombsheller continues to go from strength to strength, and will forever remain as one of the first innovators in OnDemand manufacturing – especially where fashion’s concerned.
