Friday 22nd May
Well it’s a goodbye for the school leavers today at Garforth Academy, saying farewell to the life we all want back, which also means Prom night is tonight for some ,.
If you’ve left it to the last minute, look local or if your Prom is another night, book in. for all your beauty needs, face, hair, makeup, nails, tans, toes etc, etc
Visit one of our shops or get one of great mobile hairdressers or makeup artists coming to your door, it’s all here in Garforth and they too use all the trendy branded makeup they use in town, but you will pay a lot less and probably look nicer #myopinion
Have a visit mums, dads, lads and lasses http://www.themaindeal.co.uk/make-me-beautiful.html

A few new products coming to the street this week; well it’s new to me. Younique makeup at Absolutely Fabulous and a few local mobile beauticians also offering this brand too. From looking at the pictures alone on Ab Fab, it makes you look rather marvellous.

You still have time to make any comments to the plans for the new Wetherspoons – see here http://bit.ly/1IFqAFj and see what they are planning as it may affect where you live with no plans added for parking spaces!
St Gemma's new Charity shop opened yesterday; I popped in, lots of clothes, and a few wicker chairs, but not too many other options on the furniture front, let’s hope over time, more will arrive.
Their old shop, no 45 is now a second bridal shop, they have had a kind donations from Austin Reed on men’s jackets - worth a look

I’m so sure he will go far with his good attitude and great talent – have a listen to some of his great tracks https://soundcloud.com/iamdaydreamer
