Fabulous Friday…5 books that I am currently reading

I was at lunch and my friend asked me this interesting question – What books am I currently reading? It has been a while since someone asked me a question that has made me think alittle.

Fabulous Fridays…5 things I have learnt about myself recently

I AM NOT SUPERMUM I cannot do it all – I used to love the idea of being that woman that can juggle so many things at the same time and still look fabulous.

Whilst…

Fabulous Fridays…

It took me ages to learn how to apply false lashes! I watched in envy as Youtubers applied their falsies in seconds. When I tried, it took 10-15 mins per eye and the lashes would still drop off!!!! By using this method, it became easier and quicker to apply my lashes.   TIP OF THE DAY If your lashes are new, before you apply them, wrap them around a pencil or pen for a few seconds so that it matches the curve of your eyes. *** After applying a thin strip of glue to your lashes,…
