Gold rush! Award yourself first place with these glittering buys

The country is on a sporting high and with the nation's morale on cloud nine, we thought it was about time we celebrated in Blighty by bringing on the bling. The trend for metallic touches at home and in the fashion world is now a perennial favourite so why not introduce a flash of gold to your living space or wardrobe? Not only will you look and feel on-trend, but it's guaranteed to put a sunny smile on your face too...

GOLD CURLING IS NOT A SPORT!

However, it IS a shimmering ribbon that is unbelievably cheap for something so gold. It’ll make all your gifts look stylish and fabulously desirable. Hold a piece of the ribbon under your chin and ask yourself if you like gold?!

Okay don’t tell anyone this gloriously riche golden luxury is from France. All they need to know is your eye shadow is not in the shadow and it’s not a normal ‘shade’ either. You’re wearing a brilliant sun-kissed tribute to our teamsters.
