  102. janet

    Hello, from a cold but with a warm heart UK. I hope you are keeping warm where you are. For Christmas, I’m am being a little greedy this year in asking for a few things. 1st that some of our troups make it home safe and get to spend time with their familys. 2nd that just one more person in the world whom could be classed as self centred will stop and take stock to remember christmas is about giving, even if it’s only just a little of their time. and thirdly If I’m on santa’s nice list would just love love love to recieve some Jane Iredale mineral foundation, I have only recently discovered her wonderful products and have put a few hints hubbys way so If I’m good I should get foundation, it’s only taken me 20 plus years to have the confidence to wear makeup. Yep I’m nearing my 40’s too. and what seems like longer to find the right one for me. So if I’m a lucky winner a little bit of Bronze will make my cheeks glow in the snow.
    Merry Christmas

  103. Jacqueline M
