Personalised Peppa pig book review

I first got in contact with pen wizard via twitter when they had advertised as Peppa Pig book that is personalised for your child and their daddy!

The book is called My Dad and its a story about Peppa Pig and Daddy pig going on a day trip with your little one and their Daddy.

You fill in your child's name and a message.  Then you get to create your child for the book.  You can choose skin colour, eye colour, hair colour and style and glasses.

Then you create Daddy!  Again with glasses, skin colour, hair type, beard, moustache etc.  As long as Daddy doesn't have long hair/beard or bright coloured hair (pink/blue etc) and no tattoos, the result is pretty good.

One issue with this book, is you can only have one child featured in the book (the mummy version,you can have two children).

The book did not take long to arrive and my kids love the book.  With Father's day coming up with is a great idea and fantastic keepsake for both your kids and their daddy.

Here is Pen wizards Details

With lots of other characters and books to personalise, there is something for everyone! Have you ordered from Penwizard before? What did you think?

Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs Review

No nakedness this time folks!  I was wearing a skirt and I wanted to top up my tan that I did on  Saturday night (see the review here)

Lovely legs is the alternative for Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs.

Its simple to use.  Spray on, rub in, wash hands, DONE!

Here are the results

As much as l love my tanned legs, I feel that I am not ready for this step of tanning.  I am too pale, and while the results still look good I felt like a brick wall.  LOL!  I know many people that swear by leg makeup, but I think I will stick to my standard tanning. and pass this on to one of my work pals!

I have to say like the Sally Hansen one, its quite messy but I found that it didn't really transfer onto my clothes and stayed on all day/night.

What do you think of my legs?  It def gave me great coverage as I am a bit see through.  I think this would look great on someone a bit more swarthy than myself.

Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan Dark review WARNING IM NUDE

I have been a big fan of Cocoa Brown tan for a while.  It is hand, easy to use, doesn't stink like most tans do AND from start to finish it takes just over an hour.

Its a brown mousse so you can see exactly where you are putting it on so every where gets covered.  It dries in almost instantly and doesn't smell like ginger snap biscuits!

Here is my before pic (excuse the crazy hair)

This is my just after I applied the mousse

Next is after the mousse had been on for an hour

Then after i had rinsed it off

And finally the next morning (the tan continues to develop after rinsing)

Because I am very pale I am very pleased that I didn't go too dark or orange! but when you see the before and after pic beside each other the results speak for themselves.

What do you think of the results?  Have you tried cocoa brown tan yet?

Have a look at my other reviews
