Losing eye lashes

Hello,So for the last few weeks now, I have been losing patches of eye lashes (But only on one eye) Which has really been irritating my eye, and I tend to wake up in the morning with lots of 'sleep' in my eye.Has anyone else had this?Also, what do women without eyelashes do?  Maybe it's because I am blonde, but without mascara, I tend to look ill. Now I have strips of no eyelashes, it does look odd. Any amazing make up tips?Thank you for reading!See More

Finally!
Had enough! Stupid stupid hair, not worth all the stress and getting all depressed, so off with it!

Dramatic I know, but if it makes me feel better about myself.

Take care everyone :) xx

I just need a bit of a vent!



I thought my hair was growing so well, not total regrowth, but at a fairly unnoticeable areate stage. But just lately it seems to be falling out everywhere!



I've booked to see a specialist at the hospital, but thats not until December!



I guess I more worried that now I have to tell people all over again, as Ive just moved back to uni, new people, new circumstances.



I don't want to be trapped in the 'hiding it' phase again,… Continue

Hey all!

Thought I would keep you all updated! I moved into University halls last friday!! Loving it so far! I couldn't have asked for better house mates, really they are so so lovely! A house of 6 students, 3 girls and 3 lads. All studying different subjects, but we get on so well! We have a real nice family vibe, taking it in turn to cook for everyone each day, and the lads are so protective of us 3 girls when we go out!



And NO ONE cares about the 'bald issue'. I have had a… Continue

If you were this man... thank you!

Hi there fellow bloggers :)

Just thought I would type and tell you of my little happy story for the weekend.

So there I am, stepping off the tram in Nottingham City Centre, Old market square, with my Mum and my Oma. when a man ran up to me and touched my shoulder. for a moment I thought he was going to tell me that I had been a right numpty and left something on the tram, but actually, he said:

" Hi, sorry, you don't know me, but I just wanted to say, that you are really… Continue
