Tip of the day!

Have you run out of shaving foam/gel?

Fear not! Simple hair conditioner will work just as well and will protect the skin.

Try it out!

Verse of the day....

There is a season for everything; what season are you in? (Verse recommended to me by someone special :))

Ecclesiastes 3

1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Tip of the day!

Dear all,

I hope you've had a fab start to the day!

My tip of the day is, instead of splashing out on expensive exfoliaters just buy yourself a couple of muslin cloths from Superdrug. Use them after cleansing in the shower when your pores will be open.

They are only about a pound and are really gentle yet effective for exfoliation.

I wouldn't be without mine :)

Polyvore art of the day

"The Best Things In Life Aren't Things"

Poem of the day

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."

Sorry I couldn't come and play at Barry M!

Hello gorgeous ladies,

I'm at my parent's house at the moment and found these photos on my Mum's laptop. They are, in short my homage to Barry M using the products I have! I did them on the day of the event. I was going for lunch with my Mum and Mother in Law in case anyone is interested. They are used to me and my colourful combinations though!

I loved reading everyone's reports of the event; it looked awesome! It would have been great to meet some of you and play with Barry M goodies!

Unfortunately because of other commitments I can't make the Maybelline/Garnier event either but hopefully there will be an event soon where I can meet some fellow enthusiasts!

Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend.

Let me know if you like these looks or if you have any questions or would like any reviews!
