I haven’t forgotten Mothers Day!!!! (my wife is sorting it out)

A few years ago whilst discussing Mothers Day with a friend he said exactly that! “my wife sorts out that kind of thing, and has our 2 mums covered” When asked if he had sorted out anything for his wife (new mum to twins) his face was a picture! “Oooohhh Nooooo I didn’t think about that he said”!

Some may say its all just commercial trollop, and yes some shops can make it seem like that sometimes but it really is a day to just thank mums and remember all they do for us. Life is so hectic alot of the time and time stops for no-one but is very precious so I hope Mothers Day for all you mums out there is a day which suits you down to the ground whatever it may be.

Why don’t you leave me a comment on what would be your perfect Mothers Day treat and I’ll let you know mine!!!!!!!!

Monday Blues?.. No… Bohemian Rhapsody!!!!!

Impala Impressions (with a little help from some friends) accomplished their first face castings this week!

Sorry I haven’t been around for a while, time just seems to be passing too quickly at the moment! Anyone else having this trouble?!!!

Mondays are usually a groan, urgh day for most but this Monday, myself (Jay) and 3 friends undertook our first face castings. The first 2 didn’t go so well and lets say … involved shoving rolled card board tubes up noses so breathing wasn’t an issue, we soon learned that it was impossible to get the full nose covered in alginate, giving a useless mould. Many thanks to one friend who decided that she would give it a go and trust me to leave two nostril holes throught the alginate and then the plaster bandages. The whole process takes minutes then about 8 minutes drying time before prising the cast off. For a first time I thought we did execptionally well, no hair pulling (lots of vasaline!)

The girls did me and I have to say that it was a most pleasant experience, abit like having a facial massage and I found it quite relaxing, the other girls said the same.

If anyone is interested in giving this a go – give me a call on 01732521537 or email justine@impala-impressions.co.uk for availability and pricing.

What a fantastic and unusual present!

Let me know what you think!

New Opening Hours for Impala Impressions

As a work as home mum, I thought I had the balance right but as Impala goes from strength to strength I’m finding it difficult taking calls at 7.00pm at night and at weekends which is precious time for me to spend with my family. New opening times are found on my website.

Mon – Friday – 9.00am – 3.00pm
Sat – Sunday – Closed

Wow, I’ve just realised I haven’t written a blog post for absolutely ages! Sorry about that…….. time just seems to be whizzing by at the moment, Impala Impressions has just gone from strength to strength this year, I’m even considering the possiblity of franchising, but that’s for another time.
My exciting news is our new addition to the family, our fab labrador pup, Jeb.
Let me know what you think of him! He’s a perfect companion and a great play mate for Ethan, my 5 year old who tells me at least twice a day that he loves him very much!
