CLOSED – Win it! The Body Shop Expert Brush Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 20 - 2014

I don’t know about you, but I woke up this morning with a distinct “Hello Monday morning, I’ve been expecting you…” kinda feeling.  Maybe it’s because today is officially the “bluest day of the year”… maybe it’s because I’m dragging my heels over doing the last bit of my tax return and you know… tick-tock.  Or maybe it’s just because I looked out of the window and saw a sheet of ice about an inch-thick covering the car just before the realisation that I forgot to buy de-icer this weekend.

Whatever the reason, I feel that it’s my mission in life (today, at least) to spread a little joy.

And what could be more joyful than the opportunity to win a brilliant brush set from The Body Shop?  Nothing!  You see, these brushes are a makeup bag staple for any ladies getting serious about makeup.  I cut my teeth on The Body Shop brushes… their softy-synthetic loveliness is gentle on the face and kind to the bunnies.  They’re well-cut, solidly constructed, hard-wearing, and give a beautifully-polished finish day after day.

    A man is chatting to his friend in a bar telling him how he went home drunk again to his wife who chastised him for coming home with vomit all down his suit.
    So his friend has a fabulous idea. Next time you’ve been drinking put a tenner in your pocket and when you vomit all over yourself and your wife tells you off again you can tell her it wasn’t you and that if she puts her hand in your pocket she will produce a tenner that the bloke who vom’d on you gave you for the dry cleaning bill.
    So the next week the man goes out and once again vomits all down his jacket.
    His wife tells him this is the last time and she is throwing him out.
    Aha he says, but it wasn’t me- see if you just reach into my pocket there is a tenner from the man who vomited on me to pay for the dry cleaning bill. So his wife puts her hand in his pocket and pulls out not one but two tenners.
    There’s two tenners in here says the wife, how do you explain that then?
    Well, says the man one is from the man who vom’d on me, the other is from the one who shat in my pants!!

    Sorry it’s a bit crude, but it’s one of my favourites!! xxx

    A man asked his wife what she’d like for her birthday. “I’d love to be six again,” she replied.

    On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear, everything there was! Wow! Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, her head reeling and her stomach upside down. Right to a McDonald’s they went, where her husband ordered her a Big Mac along with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, the latest Star Wars epic, and hot dogs, popcorn, Pepsi Cola and M&Ms. What a fabulous adventure!

    Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed. He leaned over and lovingly asked, “Well, dear, what was it like being six again?”

    One eye opened. “You idiot, I meant my dress size.”

    The moral of this story is: If a woman speaks and a man is actually listening, he will still get it wrong
