Before I sign off for my internet-free day tomorrow that will no doubt be filled with mince pie eating, Baileys glugging and belly rubbing activities I just want to drop by to share some festive goodwill. I keep things light and fluffy on here but I need to get all soft for a minute. Anyone who’s ever dropped by these parts is owed a huge thank you and bear hug from me. Reading your comments everyday is an activity that often makes me laugh; you’re such a witty, intelligent and funny bunch and I’m truly lucky to have you as readers.

And have no fear I’ll be back on Boxing Day having no doubt scrolled my heart out at 2am that morning to bring you the best of the beauty store sales. Fingers at the ready, but until then I wish you nothing but the merriest of Christmas wishes you cosmetics crazy lot.

    That’s awesome! I love the eyelash curler for the Y. I can’t imagine how much time that took. And I hope that she didn’t have to sacrifice her Nars lip crayon for that message on the floor!
