    Just an add on about eye lash tints. It is very hard to dye your own lashes as it is your own hair and if you get it in your eye it will sting like hell.Best get then dyed by a professional at a beauty salon. I have dark lashes although not thick and lush. I have had them dyed many times but I still need to lash on the mascara. Tinted lashes are good it you have blonde and pale lashes but they don't make them look longer.
    Hi MM
    I had my four weekly eyebrow and eyelash tint and thread done last Saturday and then to my hairdresser for my usual colour and highlights. I've been going to the same person for nearly twenty years and followed her to different salons until she was able to open her own place. Last Saturday, I had a little warmer colour for Autumn I also had an inch off and it really gives you a boost, doesn't it when you come out - I always feel ten years younger!!!

      The problem with polo necks Heather is that the older woman (me) either has a double chin resting on the the rollover bit , or the turkey neck pushing up the fat over the neck part.I like a larger boat neck which suits me better. Too warm at the moment for winter clothes down here i love to wear sundresses and shorts as long as possible.
      butI agree there are some good winter selections in the shopsCG

        CG,
        my daughter has her boyfriend staying at the moment - they will both be going to different universities this month after their foundation year in Canterbury. Ella is going to Westminster but her boyfriend will be starting Falmouth. It sounds like a great place - they are so lucky! I think she will have a bit of a journey to visit from London!
        Im an older woman too - late forties!!!!

          Hi Heather, I am a much older woman 69 years but I still love fashion and hair and makeup, wouldn't go out without looking smart. Yes it is a very popular university , as a first year student will he be staying on the campus?, the trains are pretty goodwqy and there is an airport at Newquay for special occasions, the very best of luck to them both and as they say love finds a way.CG

            Unfortunately he wasnt able to obtain a place on campus - he is going to be staying in a house with two other people. I dont know where it is but think somewhere central.

              My favourite item of clothing, polo necks are supposedly 'in' for Autumn/Winter. The new 'twist' from the catwalk is that we are supposed to wear our hair 'inside' the neck whether it be in a ponytail or in a mussy style. The idea is that you have pulled the neck over your head and leave it at that. Ill still be wearing my polo-necks but Ill leave the rest.
              Also, anyone else like me? As soon as the August bank holiday is over Im into my winter clothes. Summer is great but people look very smart in their boots and a nice jumper and scarf!





              Heather.
              Air Travel makes me imagine that countries are nearer to each other than they really are. When I read that you are planning to start wearing your winter clothes and can even think about jumpers and scarves I'm stunned. Here am I sweltering in 34 deg and still many weeks of heat to expect.

                I am the same here Hat776. I never thnk of winter clothes although I must admit he Cypriots always wear boots and scarves in January as they like to think it is winter, when in real terms it is more like a spring day in the UK.

                      I discovered a new product. Well it is not new but I have never used it before. I think it is really good and it could be very useful on a cruise. It is Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs.
                      I bought it as I am always tannned living here in the sun, but my friends dog clawed my leg and left a long scratch from my knee to my ankle and now it is a pink line. So bought SH and it is really good. Makes your legs smooth looking and tanned, if you want them tanned. The product comes in different shades. it makes you look like you have tights on or fine stockings. Great for summer nights before the tan kicks in. Many people find it hard to tan their legs as well.
                      It was not cheap here in Cyprus I paid €25 and it will be less then that in the UK so probably worth a try if you want to cover up pale legs and small imperfections.

                        I only joined the forum last night after learning about it in maggiemou's book...... so I'm now sitting here with moisturized feet wrapped in clingfilm with thick socks on and my favourite glittery heels. I love these shoes but they are so painful to wear, so now I'm putting maggiemou's tips to the test. Hopefully I will be able to wear my favourite heels more often.
