Happy tidings to everyone..and a huge thank you so much to all those of you read my blog and those who take time to comment and add your amazing input to the posts. This blog is designed to be an open forum where your views and thoughts are invaluable. Where possible, I give feedback to the brands concerned so they’ve got the ultimate ‘customer feedback’ on their product – good or bad. So, your voices are heard. I also want to thank (no, don’t worry, I’m not doing a Gwynneth getting all teary and rambling for hours!) the PRs who stoically brave their clients’ wrath when things don’t get such a positive response and don’t bring it back to my table but carry on being helpful and kind without mentioning it. I know it happens. And also thanks have to go to both PRs and brands who have unwaveringly supported bloggers – they know who they are, and so do we. Finally, I need to say a very big thank you to all other beauty bloggers – we’ve formed a real blog community that’s friendly, dynamic and unendingly supportive. All in all, this blog wouldn’t be what it is without everyone mentioned – I’m so grateful every single day that people keep reading. My thanks.

I’m taking a few days off from 24th through to 28th or so, but will be moderating comments and of course, if anything too exciting comes in, will be adding in a sneaky post between the turkey and the Queen’s speech.

Oh, and finally, to those who asked whether they should invest in a Slendertone Face system, I say yes. I stopped using it and noticed the difference..I’m back on the buzzing big time!
