Did you catch The Apprentice last night?
I have to say I am pretty gripped these days, but the right person definitely went.
For personality alone, I am rooting for James, but I do feel sorry for him as he is now living with 4 head strong women – who seem to spend a lot of time layering the make up on.
I don’t think it would hurt for all the Apprentice Girls to have a bit of a make over (or make under in some cases.) Lorraine in particular needs to ditch the lipstick!
There’s a few weeks to go until someone claims the £100k victory, so for now, the hopefuls must be pretty strapped for cash. No need to worry though, we have a great range of Zafi cosmetics priced at 2 for £1 – amazing value…
There’s eveything you need including pressed powder, bronzing pearls, nail varnishes, eye liners, eye shadows, lip glosses, glimmer sticks, mascara’s and eyeliners…and you can buy any 2 for £1. Amazing value!
