Charity of the Month – NSPCC

The charity of the month this November is NSPCC. I have heard a lot about this amazing charity over the years. It is a charity after my heart because it helps and supports children, the amazing leaders of tomorrow.  If you are looking to support or get involved with a UK leading children’s charity, NSPCC is the one you need. This UK charity has been saving lives of children for over 130 years and their amazing work speaks for itself. Between 2016 and 2021, NSPCC has helped to make over 6.6 million children safer from abuse, and has taken hundreds of calls from children in need of help thanks to the Childline number. Every 25 seconds, a child contacts Childline for help.

Over the years, NSPCC has developed new services to help families, campaigned to change laws, shared vital information about child abuse and how to recognise it, and developed new tools for children, parents and professionals. Many children are experiencing child abuse and neglect, and struggling to stay on top of their mental health. This is why it is important charities like this are supported so they can provide help and support to those who need them the most.

If you are planning your prom night then, unless you are up against the clock and have left everything far too late then you should try and relax, take your time and listen to your instincts when it comes to the most important parts, one which being, your dress.

1. Don’t Stress

The main thing with planning your prom is not to stress, try not to overthink anything a keep it simple. Follow the guidelines set out by your school and choose something that makes you happy. Far too many youngsters are plagued with stress and or the pressure of other people around them.

Don’t let others guide your decision, especially other students. Who cares what everyone else is doing? If you want to look into 2 piece prom dress for sale, then you go for it. The dress is for you and you only, not another reason to try and fit in with the crowd.

Of course, you will have to adhere to your parents’ wishes, if they are paying for the dress and, you want to avoid any arguments. Having said that, unless you are expecting the world, if you look for an outfit that you could either wear again for another occasion, the budget you spend could be talked about and maybe even increased. There seems to be a thing, or an idea that you’ll only ever wear it once and as such, some people or parents will be a little hasty in spending too much.

2. Be Yourself

Always try and be yourself, your clothes are an expression of you and how you feel. It makes zero sense to buy an outfit that is uncomfortable but, it’s what everyone else has so you go for it anyway to try and look cool. Inevitably, those people regret their choice, firstly because it wasn’t really their choice to start with and secondly because everybody is different, so you might choose a dress that actually doesn’t fit very well.

3. Choose Something That You Like

The best thing to do is to choose a dress that you like, 2 piece formal dresses are increasing in popularity because you have so many variable options and they are a mix between formal and the smartest of casual clothes. If you go for something that you actually like, something that fits your body shape and that is comfortable, then you are more likely to enjoy your evening to its fullest.

If, on the other hand you go for an outfit that you don’t particularly like but you think it will make you look better than the others, you may find it extremely uncomfortable and ultimately end up with tarnished memories of an occasion that should be one of the best nights of your life.

4. Try And Get An Outfit That You Could Sell On, If You Wanted To

Not many youngsters will think this way, so if you can get yourself in the mindset of buying your dress as an investment, then it will set you up for a better financial future too. Consider those who have never gone through the thought process of buying something, with a view of selling it on and perhaps even making profit if the item or items are desirable enough.

Whenever you make a purchase of clothing that is generally only going to be used once, think smart, think future and don’t be like the majority of people who will either end up throwing their dress away or store it somewhere never to be seen again. As above, try and get something unique that can be used for other occasions and that has desirability so that you can, if you want to, sell it.




Finding The Right Career In The Beauty Industry For You

*Collaborative post.

There is nothing better than being able to forge a career doing something you love. The fact is, there is no set age for you to discover the right job for you. Finding your employment at 20,30, 40 or even 70 is something that should be celebrated.

The trick to finding a career you love is to indulge in something you are passionate about. These days there is a wealth of job roles that didn’t exist ten or even five years, meaning the market has opened up drastically to allow people to expand their horizons and forge ahead in a new career.

One such industry in the UK that continues to thrive is the beauty industry. Over the years, cosmetologists have been able to relearn new skills, adapt their styles and learn new procedures and treatments to allow them to grow and expand as the market changes.

If you have an eye for beauty and are passionate about helping look and feel good in your own skin, then retraining in a career in the beauty industry can be just the option for you. In 2020, the UK beauty industry was worth £27 billion.

There are different courses and levels of education required to help you become qualified for many of these career options. On top of this, you can always take refresher courses and completely new courses to challenge yourself as and when you choose to help further progress your career.

Depending on the area you want to train in, you can enrol at local colleges, private training centres or head to university to study more technical aspects such as product branding and to promote new beauty products and treatments or to learn more about the pharmaceutical side and cosmetic science to allow you to learn to how to develop your own beauty products and treatments.

With this in mind, what are your options for careers within the beauty industry?

Makeup Artist

There are no prerequisites for enrolling in a makeup artist school; the only criterion is that the student has a strong desire to work in the field. Flawless foundation procedures, concealer application, and contour and highlight are among the topics covered in the course. Other topics include understanding the function of a makeup artist, utilising corrective makeup techniques, and the materials necessary for the work.

Your course will help you to discover how to identify the right products for different skin tones, complexions and more to allow you to achieve a truly flawless finish.

If you are already adept at applying makeup, you can enhance your CV even more by learning the art of permanent makeup application. Adding permanent makeup training to your repertoire can allow you to work with a broader range of clients who need something more permanent or less complicated than a standard makeup routine.


Hairdressing is a career that is well-known throughout the world. The hairdressing industry offers a wide variety of employment prospects. Students will master the following skills in hairdressing: hair making, on-scalp whole head and retouch blending services, client consultation, lighting products, workplace safety, hair making equipment usage, processing time, heat acceleration, toning and toning products.

Beauty Copywriter

If you prefer to use your words and help people discover more about the products and procedures they can undertake, then you can become a copywriter.

A beauty copywriter is someone who writes blogs and articles about beauty, fashion, and trends. A fashion magazine is an example of a product that is the result of beauty copywriting. A beauty copywriter can expect to earn an annual salary of £40,000 on average.

Spa Treatments

In the field of spa beauty and body therapy, students learn cosmetic science, advanced facial treatments, facial electrotherapy, eye treatments, ear piercing, pedicure/manicure, hair removal and removal of unwanted hair, cosmetic makeup, diet and exercise, nutrition, heat treatments, body massage, professional ethics and business, first aid, health, safety, and hygiene in the salon.


If you are already in the beauty industry and want a new challenge, why not look at training to help you educate up and coming stylists for the future. The beauty industry will always benefit from the knowledge and experience of those in their field, and if practising your art no longer ignites that fire for you, then why not ignite that fire in others?

Store Owner

Beauty is about more than just how you look. It is about the confidence beauty products and treatments can give and the effect of feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin.

Anyone with a thorough understanding of the notion of beauty can choose to create a beauty business in which beauty goods, beauty accessories, and other such items are sold. Retail shops and boutiques are owned by people who understand the true definition of beauty and can offer genuine insights and advice for those looking to find the right products for them.

You can choose to sell only makeup items, skincare times or both and more. You can sell the products alone or offer treatments and beauty services alongside them to create a one-stop beauty shop to cater to your client’s needs. Ultimately the decision is yours, but opening a beauty centre store can be a lucrative option, especially if you run it in conjunction with an online store.

Nail Technician

As a nail technician, you will learn how to groom cuticles, eliminate calluses and dead skin. During your training, you will know how to do the perfect manicure and pedicure on models, along with nail design techniques and applying acrylic nails.

As a nail technician, you could learn the art of warm paraffin wax treatments in which warm paraffin wax is applied to the forearms, hands, and feet to soften and massage the skin. The plant elements in the paraffin wax deeply moisturise the skin.

Nail technicians can operate in various settings, such as a nail salon, a hair/beauty salon, or a mobile nail technician. The choice is yours.
