Soap & Glory offer of the year

I had to let you know that it's that time again girls - as part of the Boots 12 weeks of Christmas offer series, Soap and Glory fans will be able to get their hands on a bumper set of products for a truly tiny price.

This year it comes in the form of the Big Splendour - originally £60 but starting tomorrow, for 1 week only, will be less than half price.

This year's set heralds the truly classic Righteous Butter and Hand Food alongside some less well known members of the line such as Pulp Friction body scrub.

Although on for a week, make haste girls - these fly off the shelves in record time!  I got last year's equivalent and loved it; cannot wait to snap this up tomorrow!

Latest Addiction: Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are one of those recent fads that have been much on my radar for some time.  Like eyebrow threading, it was always something that I always thought was not for me - how wrong I was.

Having sat in a reclined chair for an hour after a long day at work - yes, I did fall asleep! - I was almost mesmerised by the final result of having tiny hairs painstakingly applied to my own short, and pretty feeble, natural lashes.

As the pictures show, I now have the lashes of my dreams - long, healthy and perfectly graduated in length.  The best part - it is almost undetectable that they are not what nature intended!

If I care for these correctly - absolutely no rubbing and not a hint of an oil based product - I can expect them to last around 3 weeks before I need another set.  Supposedly the glue used - by an independent beautician in my local area - will cause absolutely no harm to my natural lashes.  I cannot report on that so far but all I know is, if there is no damage, I'll be back in 3 weeks falling asleep in the reclining chair ready to get a new set...who ever said natural is best?!  ;)
