Day 26: A Few Things I've Read Online Recently

Sunday's topic was to share 'something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.'

I'm a little late on posting Day 26's topic, as to be perfectly honest, I was stumped over what I could write about. Everything interesting I've read recently, I've either already shared with you through my Serendipity Sunday series; or has already been widely circulated on the news and in the blog-osphere; or were written by yourselves.

So, I put this post aside for a day or so, did a little online reading, and searched through my bookmarks for ideas. Here are a few articles / posts which I hope you'll find interesting.

// Top 50 Beauty Tips By UK Women.

I wouldn't usually feature anything written by The Daily Mail, but I happened up on a beauty post that I found quite interesting and useful. 

While the article delves further in to beauty tips, the article ends with a list of the top 50 beauty tips used by women in the UK, which you can see below. Most of the tips cost next to nothing, and require natural and house hold items. I'm sure most of you will have learnt a few of these from your parents and grandparents, and probably follow many of them today. I know I do!
