As is always the case whenever I’m scheduled to go somewhere special something ridiculous happens.
On Monday it appears I washed my face with a flannel that had blinking turps on it! Yes chuffing paint remover – turps!
Long story short we have decorators in who had cleaned their brushes in the bathroom unbeknown to me.
How I didn’t smell it is beyond me!
Luckily because I couldn’t get my brows wet I didn’t go anywhere near my eyes but within 1/2 hour of using said flannel the rest of my poor face was red, blotchy, itchy and looked slightly swollen.
I woke up this morning and although my skin felt a lot better I still had very dry , tight skin that was shredding like a snake. Everytime I smiled , or just moved my face I could feel my skin cracking.
Luckily my newly micro-bladed eyebrows had also shredded in the night to reveal a fine pair of fresh rather lovely eyebrows underneath. Thankfully I no longer resembled Parker so at-least the Thunderbird jokes could stop!
I sighed (in an oh shit look at the state of me type of way) spayed my face with Evian water (again) and set off to pick mum up.
As a ‘guest; we had been asked to get to Sandersons Boutique Department store a little earlier than the official opening time of 11.00am
Its situated at Fox Valley, Stocksbridge only a 5 minute drive from mine . We arrived a lot earlier, I’m always punctual if a little scaley!
We collected our badges and made our way inside for a ‘sneaky peak’ before the official opening at 11.00am

Sandersons are officially up and running! Continue reading
