Driving Home for Christmas

Train home for Christmas

Well technically, I am getting a train home for Christmas. Regardless of transport, I now have 2 weeks holiday. A guilt free Christmas for the first time in over 6 years. No exams, no coursework, no deadlines. Just plenty of family time, wine and good food!

All about The Brows.

Eyebrows are a definite game changer. I have had mixed feelings towards the drawn-on eyebrow look, with some people looking amazing, ahem Connie! Part of my reluctance was to try the trend was fear of being handed a black eyebrow pencil, which would stand out against my blonde hair.

I visited the Chanel stand in my ever favourite store, House of Fraser after work. I was so shocked when the makeup artist suggested I used a blonde clair pencil. The effect was incredible and instantly changed my face! The Chanel pencil, includes a pencil at one end, a brush at the other and a sharpener too keep the pencil in tip-top shape. All the tools you need in one box!
