I’ve had quite a few random blind pimples recently. So hit me with your best zip zapping spot treatments.

I’ve got a good skincare routine that deals to them after a couple of days, but keen to hear what other ‘now’ treatments people use.

I think we're spending Christmas with my partners family at their beach house. We are having a themed dress up party on Christmas day. We did it a couple of years ago and it was so much fun.

Then we may head up North to other family at their beach house for a couple of days. 

I would like to have New Years with my family though as we always alternate etc.

My brother is getting married in March so would like to spend time with his fiance and my nephew to be.

I'm working throughout December.  
 I can see myself flying to Perth to finish renovating Dads house. Put it up for sale. As well as finishing all his Estate. Hopefully I would finish it by late February . Somehow still work amongst all .  Thinking of throwing Bali into it after I've settled everything as pamper as flights are cheaper from Perth. We'll see how it goes. Nothing seems to be going to plan lol

We're home for Christmas - but going off the grid on the 27th for a week and going to stay at a farm/B&B just out of Taihape....can even take our beloved Labrador Freddy with us, and we've booked a rafting day-trip with BBQ lunch for the whole family (pooch is coming too!)... It's going to be fun! Would love to go to the islands for a break, but we're going to Europe in 2021 for 8 weeks, so money is funneling towards that ....

Yes yes yes! 

there was another music one too but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called. 

I learned more from dolly and girlfriend than I did from a lot of sources.

I used to love Dolly, Girlfriend, and Cream magazines, they'd always have good freebie period kits and often they'd do those goodie bags with purchase with lots of product samples, which were always great.

Great thread Trudi x

I'm a Mum to 3 munchkins (hence my BR name lol). Two boys aged nearly 16 and 13, and one girl aged 11. I live in Whangarei with my munchkins and fiance.

I'm privileged to have been part of BR since 2013 and have loved to see how they have grown over the years. I've also made some amazing friends who I have become close friends with (thank you so much BR for bringing us together).

I work as a contract Co-ordinator for a surfacing company and have been there since January, before that I worked for a logging company.

My favourite colour is purple and I'm a massive kid that still loves unicorns lol.

My favorite products at the moment are Eco Tan and Sand & Sky.

Think I've bored you all now ha ha ha :-)

I like how there are so many options for females now.

I havent tried the period panties or moon cup option. Unfortunately I had an incident when I was younger and the thought of wearing tampons and moon cups still scare the heck out of me.

So at the moment I'm sticking with cloth pads which are really comfortable, easy to wash and great for the environment.

Haha omg I feel like there’s been so many! I think my firsts were foundation to cover my pimples and I would totally nick my mums so it probably didn’t colour match, then mum roll on and impulse body sprays were my cheapskate makeshift perfumes in my teens I wanted to smell nice not teen like. 
Then yessssssss the holiday skin I remember trying to hunt that down.

I started out with pressed powder. Probably like most starters, had no idea about matching tones. My face was probably more orange than my neck, as all i cared at the time was to cover my few freckles and facial hair hahahahaha. I always had to finish off with either a shimmery lip conditioner or a nice lip gloss. I adored my skin so much back then. Nowadays pressed powers will probably be too dry for my skin.

@tannygirl, I’m glad that cleaning tip helped.  Another thing that might be causing leaks could be the length of the “stalk” on the cup.  I ended up trimming mine right down to 5mm, but that was more for personal comfort than anything else. 

Have you read the FAQ’s on Mooncup’s website re: leaks?

     @Silvene that tip for how to easily get the holes to flush really cleaned them out effortlessly. I did still have some leaking but since my shower last night when I cleaned out put it back in no leaks. But then my flow has lessened as well.

Hi Ladies, I'm a mother of two girls and am 25 again lol. I'm a cake decorator and work in retail. We love our pets, taking our doggy girl for a walk. 

I love make-up and have done since I was a little girl. The colours of lipsticks and nail polish catch my eye. Mascara I just love. 

I like to read and my girls call me a nerd hehe. I enjoy swimming, water sports, walking amongst nature and shopping. I joined BR about 2.5 years ago when I was looking for reviews on a product and came across this site :-)

I work as a librarian in the acquisitions department where I choose new items for the library's collections. I think I have been on BR for the past 3 years.

I grew up with 2 older sisters who like it too, and my mother always puts on lipstick before leaving the house!
