A Little Piece of History in Every Home: Tupperware turns 69

This is not a sponsored post. I just love Tupperware.

Fact: I have been a Tupperware demonstrator, twice. I would do it again too if I could carry/wheel the products to a demonstration. I was not quite 19 when I went to my first Tupperware demonstration, and not long after was when I became a demonstrator. It’s the only Plastic Fantastic I have, that I will always love, and to be honest, I love it so much I could sell it underwater with a mouthful of marbles! Continue reading

Help a girl out?

Alexie RicRac is on its way to becoming a business, and I need your help! I have to write a business plan and part of that business plan requires me to do market research. What better way to get some responses than to ask my blog followers!

If you’ve got a spare 5-10 minutes, I’d love it if you are able to complete my survey. There’s 10 questions so it shouldn’t take you too long at all. Please feel free to pass the survey on to people who you think might be interested in buying quality vintage and/or used goods.

And let’s not forget the fact that there is Alexie RicRac and Little Goldfish, both of which I am trying to build a social media presence for. So why then did I decide to give up Facebook?

New Directions

First, I promise you that this post is not about the hit American TV show Glee (I’ll admit now I am a fan though). It really is about a new direction for Alexie RicRac. It’s not so much a new direction as it is a step closer to turning this blog into the dream I have for Alexie RicRac. Today I start a new chapter in the Alexie RicRac story. Continue reading

4. You’re still learning to master the art of sleeping in pin curls without being awoken by a stabbing pin.

5. Kirbi-grips; you love them & your partner hates them. You buy a new pack at least once a week – where do they all go?!

6. You’re highly flammable. Hairspray is your daily companion.

7. You spend a lot of time with your arms in the air. Who needs the gym when you have an arm toning vintage hairstyling regime?

8. You will never have enough storage space…

9. You mourn the well dressed man everyday. They can keep ‘The Skinny Jean Wearing Metrosexual’ and ‘Mr Man Bun’…
