As the mother of 3 girls, one a teenager (almost 14) and another about to hit the same, (aged almost 11) both are already #obsessed with expensive make-up & Zoella. It’s a battle I seem to be losing daily!
As the old saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them! However, embracing your young lady’s desires needn’t mean indulging womanhood too early. The key is to keep it playful. Therefore I’ve popped together a selection of fun, pretty and girly girl options I know my daughters would delight in. It also means I’ll hopefully avoid them dipping into my own dressing table stash, although I’m not sure the same can be said for me and theirs!
Daisy Dixon Tara Watch £45 Watchshop.com
A lovely little watch that’s sure to make their friends envious while making a style statement along the way. I love the gold and hot pink together.
Spectrum 10 piece Brush Set £39.99 Spectrum
This set has all they need to get them started as they enivatably play around watching Beauty bloggers. I really like the fact these brushes are colourful and playful but also the fact they are vegan friendly and the brand is run by two British sisters which I also love.
Being by Sanctuary ‘I don’t give a sip’ £14 Feel Unique
My girls are obsessed with having dozens of fun drinks cups. This is a bit cheeky, just like them! Filled with the sweetest smelliest bath treats.
A sweet but not sickly floral scent with a stunning bottle with ribbon detail.
This set of mini metallic lipsticks is a great for those starting to play around with their make up and affordable to, as I find it’s really important to educate the women of tomorrow on why it’s better to spend a little extra to ensure their make up is cruelty free, which can be tough when they haven’t loads to spend.

Venova by Yamaha £94 Yamaha
When I was a kid, I always wanted to learn to play the Saxophone. It’s a desire I still harbour to this day as we didn’t really have the budget as a family for me to learn such a pricy instrument.
Luckily young musicians with a similar desire can learn the skills on this Venova by Yamaha, which has a wonderful ‘Moroccan Souk’ sound and will help them perfect the art of reed instrument playing while not killing your ears or bank balance It’s a great entry level instrument to those desiring a trumpet/saxophone and will provide hours of fun for all the family.
