No7 Bright Lights Big City Beauty Calendar Product Review

I hope you’ve all had a good Christmas but that has unfortunately come to an end which means that there are no more advent calendars. This is good for people who had beauty calendars cause it means that we get to use all the products we got but not so good for the people with chocolate advent calendars as there’s no more chocolate. Sad times (unless you got given more chocolate as a Christmas present).

Below is an image of all the contents from the No7 Bright Lights Big City Beauty Calendar. As you can see they might not all be full size products but it is such good value considering you pay £39 for the lot. Being a loyal No7 product user it means I get to try out products that I haven’t bought, because I didn’t want to buy full size products just to chuck them away as they didn’t suit my skins needs.

Behind each door there is a product (obviously, minus one) and a statement printed on the inside of the door which relates to the product. Below the image there is a list of all the statements and the products that was behind each door.

No7 Bright Lights Big City Beauty Calendar

This must be the most affordable beauty advent calendar that I have seen around in 2016 and had to get one for myself. This calendar always sells out quickly therefore get onto their mailing list to be the first to know when the beauty calendar comes out on sale. This year it came out around October time and if you sign up you can purchase one a day early before it goes on sale to the public.

Uniqueness – Everybody, Everything, Anything

Adjective: 1. existing as the only one or as the sole example; single; solitary in type or characteristics. 2. having no like or equal; unparalleled; incomparable.

Stood on Queen Square, admiring the brown autumn leaves on the ground. While I’m looking around I see that one tree amongst all the others surrounding the square being the last one still with all it’s green leaves. This made me think about how everyone has a unique factor about them; even trees do. It’s autumn and all the leaves are a bright, fresh green colour clinging onto the branches without a sweat. Everyone or anything is unique whether it’s unique by colour, shape, size, piercings/tattoos (relating to people), how they or things are treated or how they or things are looked at. I feel the best way to describe uniqueness is imagine that we are all snowflakes. You will never be able to find two snowflakes that look the same whether it’s size, shape, the way they fall, the way they land or how quickly they melt.

But why do people always ask ‘what makes you unique?’ in an interview or people saying ‘they want to be different and unique from everyone else’. I find that people don’t realise they are unique before they even starting changing their appearance, their attitude or who they make friends with. You are unique from the day you are born and that can be scientifically proven as everyone’s spiral of DNA and fingerprints are different to any other person. If you put science to one side everyone has their own potential such as gifts and talents which contributes towards that person’s uniqueness to the world.

Why do you think there was only one:

  • Michelangelo Buonarroti (greatest artist of the Italian Renaissance);
  • Mahatma Gandhi (preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world);
  • Michael Schumacher (seven-time Formula One World Champion, one of the greatest Formula One driver of all time);
  • Margaret Thatcher (Only longest-serving woman Prime Minister of the United Kingdom).

Everyone above is unique because they are made up of all their own potential and this is why there’s only going to be one of you or one of anything for that matter. Yes, now you’re saying but all trees have a trunk, all humans have hands, feet, eyes or all cars have exhausts. But if you think about it in depth not all of that is true.

Potential is like a paradox because we are part of a human family but we are unique within that family through the various different dreams we have, different jobs we have, various backgrounds we have or upbringing. If you think through all the talents you have whether it’s singing, solving algebra equations, knowing which way is north by looking around you or even solving a rubix cube which is your best? Once you’ve picked the talent that you love and you excel yourself in; imagine you’re in a room with 99 other people and they can’t carry out that talent/skill as good as you that talent that you have puts you in the top 1% of the population! Now that’s unique!
