My Favourite Beauty Products & Corners of my Home



TENA LADY EXTRA - PROUD SPONSORS OF DOLLYTUB COTTAGE


First of all, before I continue with the usual ramblings of a post menopausal nutcase, I would just like to thank you all.

I am absolutely over the moon at recent developments.

You may remember last year before I took my protracted blogging break, that I was in the process of securing sponsorship for my blog from Major Wettam, CEO of Tena Lady Inc.

Tena have now agreed to sponsor Dollytub Cottage blog by paying my extravagant broadband bills.

This is all down to you my weak bladdered little bloggeroos for reading my posts. Once more Tena Lady Inc. have seen an increase in sales over the last few weeks as my kind followers have thrown caution to the wind, and laughed unashamedly at my recent antics.

I cannot thank you enough.

So..................er, what was I going to talk about today? Oh yes, I remember......

Following my post "What's in my Handbag", I have had numerous requests to write a post on my favourite beauty products, or a corner of my home.

In a bid for energy conservation, (namely mine,) I have decided to write a post that will cover both topics.

Where is my favourite place to pamper myself?

Well, like most ladies, I choose the bathroom.

I haven't always used the bathroom for this, but I've not been across the other side of my bedroom for ages so I can't quite get to the dressing table.




So, here we are in my bathroom, excuse the bath, but like all good Northern Lasses, I have been keeping the coal in it.



Excuse the shower too, but I have got a new one somewhere.





I prefer a large sink, well there's so much of me to wash!



Oh look, there's my new shower too!

There is a toilet in here, but this is just for visitors.



I just love fresh air so I use the outside loo................




And of course, no outside loo is complete without.......................


Paper!

If you think that looks a bit draughty - you should see where the bidet is sited!

Here are some of my beauty and make up products.........

Toothbrush, this one is fantastic - it doubles as a washing up brush



I get through a lot of toothpaste - I've got a big mouth. (I bet that's not much of a surprise!)




It's a bit awkward for my nephew though............


Those of you who are around my age will have noticed that the older we get, the more important flossing is.






Sadly, with all my medication, I have very large spaces between my teeth


Still - it's supposed to be lucky isn't it?

Last of all in my dental arsenal, industrial strength mouthwash........



Yummmmmmmmmmmmm! My favourite.
(Since I've been using this brand, I've not suffered with ear wax either!)


Now I start with my face............

I refuse to use any moisturiser that isn't 100% Pure






Then my anti ageing product. This one comes with free applicator..................




If it's good enough for Andie, it's good enough for me!

Now onto my hair products...............

Shampoo....






This brand is great, it doubles up as a Nail Varnish Remover. (And you know how much I love my multi-action products, don't you?)

Conditioner next..............



This really tames my flyaway hair. It also covers the grey hairs. How neat is that?!

Every couple of weeks or so, my friend Winalot Wanda pops round to give me a light perm.......

(You may remember my mention of Wanda before. She earned her Winalot nickname not because she wins competitions, but because..........................er, quite frankly, she's a bit of a dog!)




It's called a 'light' perm because the rollers hook up to the bathroom light fitting.

(Sorry I look so miserable in the pic, but Wanda has just eaten my last two wagon wheels.)


A dab of my favourite "Lippy".............




And I'm ready for the World.
But..............

Is the World ready for me, I wonder?

P.S. Some of my newer followers have asked how Legover Linda got her nickname. She earned this title when we were all about 17 years old. She carried with her a very large capacious handbag. Inside she had an inflatable mattress. This inflated within 60 seconds and came in handy if she got "lucky."

When I do my next post, I will include my award from coco loves vintage
and a pic of my beautiful Lavender Heart from Sal
