I love the power of social media, a lady called Rebecca had been following me on Instagram for ages. I got a message from her to say how much she loved my blog, she was relocating to the area and did I want my lashes done for a special price.

Usually I have a bit of residue tan from a winter sun break. This year there was no Egypt winter sun as went to Amsterdam on a city break. Continue reading Spray tan Virgin
Caution girlie blog coming up!!
My name is Gina and I’m addicted to Benefit beauty products. My friend Jan thinks it’s hilarious that I have gone from being a sweep of mascara and lippy girl to full on make up. Well more carefully applied subtle layers to make the best of my ageing face. Continue reading Benebabe
