FOTD #3 and Food for Thought
Face: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 51 Light Vanilla, e.l.f. Complexion Perfection Powder
Eyes: Collection 2000 Collagen Curl Mascara in Black
Cheeks: The Body Shop Cheek and Lip Tint
Lips: The Body Shop Colourglide Lip Colour in... Garnet? I think that's what it is!
I actually feel slightly guilty for the 'frivolous' nature of this post because I've just read this post from Dani:
http://polkadani.blogspot.com/2011/06/c-word.html. And I urge you all to go read it too. It is so easy to forget how privileged we are sometimes, how lucky we are to have family, money, our health, our lives and that we ought to be thankful for every minute of it. I've been very lucky in that I've had no close experience with cancer. However I have family and friends with serious illnesses which terrifies me. I've struggled over the years with an eating disorder, self-harm and depression and I know what it's like to feel like the darkness will go on forever and there's no point in living. On those days especially, I find it hard to be grateful. But when I come out of those periods, I do try my best to see that I have an amazing family who've put up with too much from me, and people I am so honoured to call my friends, just like Dani.

And to cheer you up after serious talk, here is my gorgeous dog :)
Love to you all,
