Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger for the over Fifties - What real women wear!

Friday 7 October 2016

Got that Friday feeling? TGI Friday.

Evening all.

How are you?  Glad it's Friday?

Late post today - it's prosecco o'clock already -  so cheers it's a happy,bubbly post!

The usual run-of-the-mill running around and chores today, along with taking my gorgeous princess to baby gym.  She loved it as usual, and is really getting the hang of it, singing the songs, doing all the actions, collecting the ducks and completing the set tasks - today rolling, throwing and catching a ball, sounds basic but for a 2 1/2 year old it's a big mountain to climb!

Today had me wearing an old favourite of mine, namely my wide leg floral trousers from Matalan,  I paired with an olive green silky, long sleeved blouse from H and M with cream loafers and a cream long line cardigan, from Debenhams and George @ Asda respectively.  I'm a big fan of olive green with pink - great for Autumn, a real in-between season outfit.

I don't usually comment on my make-up but just had to share with you this little bit of information.
On Wednesday I took advantage of visiting my local beauty salon for an appointment with a trainee beautician - she somehow managed to make my near non-existent eyebrows look stunning!
Under the supervision of my usual lady, she tinted and tweezered my eyebrows until they resembled the sleek, sophisticated specimens of the celebrities on TOWIE!

I was telling the beautician that I'd only got an eyebrow kit that had either brown or dark black tones, which weren't the right colour for me.  I'm needing something similar to a charcoal grey.  So happy when she told me that they'd got a perfect match in their Mii range.  My shade Masterfully Dark came with a double ended grooming wand.  The fine slanted end allowed me to use small strokes that resemble hairs.  I'm thinking this will take some practise, but so far I'm really pleased with the results. What do you think?  Eyebrows really frame the eyes, and It's worth checking out what your options are either in your local beauty salon or local make-up store.

"Practise makes Perfect"........

Until tomorrow ladies, yay it's the weekend! X
