Through the Decades with Eylure

It's Hogmanay soon, and as we see out another year, we'll all be reflecting on the past, as well as welcoming in the new - but which decade would you choose if you had to?

From curls and sets in the 1940s, to the … [Read more...]

Beauty Bargain of the Week – for Girls With Attitude!

We can all spend a fortune on beauty products, but we don’t need to. Every week, I’m going to bring you my ‘Beauty Bargain of the Week‘  – a product I’ve used, and would recommend, and that, on most occasions, costs less than a fiver! What’s not to like!   I’m a bit rubbish when it comes to false lashes. I get in a right state putting them on, and then once they’re on, I feel like ripping them off again! But lashes are a massive trend in … [Read more...]
