Declutter Kids Bedrooms
Similar to yesterdays task declutter the kids bedrooms removing all toys they no longer use, even items such as the little McDonald’s toys, that just end up at the bottom of the toy basket. It’s the perfect time to do this before Christmas. Throw away all paper (my kids love to hoard paper). Remember don’t make this task harder than it is, decluttering only today, no cleaning or organising for a few weeks yet!
This was my daughter’s room earlier this year, such a mess. Read further about how I wish I never got her a desk for her room and to see after photos.

Nutrimetics Gift Pack
Nutrimetics sent me some of their range recently to try. Ooh I have to say I LOVE the Nutri-rich Instant Radiance Beauty Balm. It smells so beautiful, with a subtle apricot scent. With losing weight (or just general ageing) I have noticed a few extra lines appearing on my face, I have only been using this balm for a short period of time, but I can notice a difference in making my face feel firmer.
