Make-Up, Father's Day and the Diamond Jubilee at Asda
Spend or Splurge on Make-Up?
Asda have launched their new range of cosmetics in this season's hottest colours in their George Make-Up range. They are bang on trend, embracing this season's looks just like the top brands such as Chanel or Benefit. George make-up however is a fraction of the price. So if you want to look good and save cash, check out this cut-price range.
Velvet Eye Palette in Rainforest £4.50
Velvet Eye Shadow Single in Minx and Storm £2.50 each
Quick Dry Nail polish in Giggle and Gnome £1.75 each
This range is ideal for everyday wear for anyone who doesn't want to blow their housekeeping budget on make-up. The colours are vibrant and the packaging is simple but stylish. The nail varnish is great for girls who want a range of fun colours, or metallic and glitter effect shades to brighten up their look this summer.
Father's Day Gifts
Father's Day is on June 17th this year and if the kids want to treat dad without spending too much of their pocket money, then Asda has a range of Super Dad products that are fun and very reasonable, starting at just £1.
We took a look at the Super Dad Photo Frame and Comic Strip Fridge Magnets.
The fridge magnets are really good fun. They press out from a magnetic sheet but are quite thick and sturdy. I love the designs which hark back to the old Batman series with Ka-Pow and Thwack slogans to decorate the fridge door!
The Super Dad photo frame has a pre-printed picture with a cut-out section to put a photo of dad's face in it, transforming him into a superhero. At just £2 this would make a good alternative to a card, but it is purely a novelty gift with a thin plastic frame and no glass front so can't really be re-used as a regular photo frame after the event. It's fun nevertheless!
Queen's Diamond Jubilee
Is it sixty years already?? I still remember the street parties of the Silver Jubilee back in 1977. I still have my souvenir coin and spoon. I wonder if my kids will look back as fondly upon this time and keep their jubilee memorabilia as I did as a child? In case they do, Asda has a good range of merchandise commemorating this historic occasion and celebrating the British monarchy.
This china mug is £3 and is part of an elegant and charming tea party range, which is quintessentially British. It can be found in store from June 4th. If this design is not to your taste, there are funky and contemporary designed souvenirs also available. There will also be everything to host a street party including bunting, party ware and flags. All the Jubilee souvenirs cost £5 or less so being patriotic is very affordable. Make it a weekend to enjoy being a Brit!
