Included is mocktail drinks, hair and face makeover, choice of accessories, red carpet catwalk, disco and a printed photo. All for £25 per child, minimum 10 children, additional photos a chargeable extra.
Other than the hideous price, the whole idea of the photo-shoot party makes me cringe. Or feel like shouting. A bit of both really.
If my daughter wants to pursue a modelling career and understands the level of determination and hard graft she'll need to display, then I'll support her. I am not belittling the career.
Surely there are more worthwhile themes for a little girls party?

Two years of nursery under our belt and it's finally happened. Baby Badger has been scratching her head for a week or so. I've been checking her hair and rechecking... not a thing. We changed her shampoo... no real improvement.
Then it happened. This morning. I was brushing her hair to tie it up and I saw it. A solitary head louse. Then a second. The third appeared an hour or so later. I've been itching ever since and I think the only course of action is to shave off my waist length hair as I certainly can't face dragging a nit comb all the way through it!
I've spent the day washing all the sheets and hats and we have an exciting evening planned checking mine and Father Badger's hair - luckily Badger Cub seems to have escaped - followed by delousing Baby Badger. All I have to do now is find a way of bribing her to keep still while I comb out the little critters.
