I was delighted to be invited to join the latest campaign organized by lights by TENA. The campaign is called C’est la vie, a perfect name for the idea behind it, as it’s about the Oooops moments™.
Lights by TENA has sent me a lovely kit with foolproof solutions, easy to sort out everyday issues, issues that can be annoying, but not that difficult to solve. I was intrigued about the kit as I usually make my own sort of kits for certain issues.
I’ll start by talking about my kits. I’ve made a “basic needs” kit and I have one in every handbag I own: a pack of napkins; hair clips and hair elastics in 2-3 different colours to suit what I might wear and one close to my hair colour; 1-2 wipes for glasses (very good to wipe the screen and the camera of the phone); 2 pens; business cards; chewing gum and a pad, so I’m prepared if it happens to get my period while I’m out. Before I leave home I would add a few more essentials like the lipstick I’m wearing that day, a comb (I do comb my hair if I’m away for more than 3-4 hours), a small mirror.
I have another kit for the dog, in the car. This kit contains a tennis ball, a pack of napkins, an antibacterial hand wash, doggy bags and lots of balloons. Festus will play with the balloons and we have lots of toys without taking a lot of space in the car. I have an additional kit in the boot with the same things. When we leave, I will also take one of his towels, his traveling bowl, water, leads and collars (2 of each) and more toys if we need them.
Nail polish remover pads. I had a similar product before and it’s so helpful. Especially when I’m attending a fair, I will use a bright nail polish and a small chip will be visible. I will keep this item in my handbag or in the car, just to be sure I can remove all the nail polish instead of hiding my hands.
Dress&lingerie tapes. I had no idea they existed, but now I think it changed my life. I love a little bit of cleavage, but I don’t want to show more that was intended. I can’t wait to try this tape on one of my dresses.
Sewing kit. I have a sewing kit at home, although considering I have a sewing machine and a few things for it, it’s more than a basic kit. I was happy to see this one, as I wanted to get one for the caravan. While camping a sewing kit can prove to be vital, especially as I can’t take my whole wardrobe with me and small repairs might be needed.
Fixing mist for makeup. On a hot day, a fixing mist for makeup must be useful. I never tried it, but I will these days.
Anti-static spray. I have a skirt that is so comfortable, but the static makes it annoying to wear. I hope this spray will solve this issue. The spray should also help on a windy day, to keep the skirt/dress in its place and not revealing all. I can’t wait to try this and I don’t think I’ll have to wait for long as we get lots of windy days in Liverpool.
The next item is a gradual tan cream. I can’t say I would use it as I don’t particularly want to get tan and I avoid it as much as I can.
lights by TENA liners for those Oooops moments™. This is a delicate subject and not a lot of women might be comfortable talking about it. It’s also strange that we are so reluctant of talking about this, as 1 in 3 women are experiencing light bladder weakness at some point. I was surprised to see this as I though it’s not that common. I saw the C’est la vie clip on youtube, it’s fun and I think that is the right attitude. A lot of things can go wrong, but with a little bit of preparation, we can do anything we want.
If you want to try them, there are free samples available, more details at lights by TENA.
Purifying cloths. These cleansing wipes can be used for removing makeup and also for wiping things like deodorant marks on dark tops. Another product I will use when I’m at job related fairs. I have to look spotless and these will be very handy.
