FOTD #3 and Food for Thought

Hope you've all had a good weekend my lovelies! I've been at home with the family for a few days, needed to get away from the uni house. I will miss uni and my friends there so so so much, but I am excited to have proper time at home for a while (that said, give it a week and I'll be begging to leave). Today's make-up:

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.

Read her post here, you won't regret it:  http://polkadani.blogspot.com/2011/06/c-word.html

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

Love to you all,

  1. Wow, her post was so poignant. I never really had much experience with cancer until a friend of mine and my sister's passed away a few weeks ago due to it. You don't expect a happy, nice 14 year old boy to get leukemia and it shocked our entire school. It's horrible.

  2. It was poignant and emotional I agree! Oh that's terrible :( My condolences to you, it's an awful to happen to someone at any age, but it is such a shock when it happens to someone so young. Hopefully as with Dani it can encourage people to watch out for warning signs.
