How To Make A Father's Day Card With A Difference Create Make Do

Why we let our young daughter use makeup

As our daughter grows up (and up and up!), I’m most definitely realising that her baby days are long gone, and her toddler days too.  But I often find it really hard to let go and her her find her way, let her independence grow and let her discover the world around her in her way.

But it’s vital for their development isn’t it?

One area that we give her absolute free-rein is make-up.  She loves to experiment and I adore to see her ‘apply it’, seeing the end result of invariably blue or pink eyeshadow smudged all around her eyelids.  It’s an adorable part of a little girl being no-so-little and growing her make-believe fairy wings out.  Though it makes me sad and even pine for my beautiful newborn, I can equally see my beautiful, wonderful daughter blossoming and growing, expressing herself and becoming her.  To me, that’s just as important as remembering her baby and toddler days.

Give yourself a boost … relax with #TheZenZing

Welcome back to #TheZenZing, where I help you put the

zing back into your life.

This time I’m going to tell you how I’m getting a boost with a touch of colour.

I’m a firm believer in external influences making you feeling ‘meh’ or ‘yay’!  And usually I’m pretty good at being positive but of late, I must admit that I’ve been needing a bit of a boost.  I put that down to our recent rollercoaster ride.
I feel the need to point out here that this isn’t a sponsored post tucked between 2 others and this isn’t a post focussing on cosmetics that the majority of men (and some women) would probably overlook.  I’m not a beauty blogger and don’t intend to be.
You see, I don’t often wear make-up (I find it quite pricey in all honesty – particularly for how much I wear it), I rarely wear nail varnish and as such usually flick through the Avon book absent-mindedly until I find one of the favourite non-cosmetic items that are on offer.
However, this time around I stumbled upon some trial size lipsticks and something grabbed me.  I decided there and then that I needed a splash of colour, a bit of a boost.  I’ve found in the past that colour can really affect your mood. The truth is that I’ve got out of the habit of putting mascara or eyeliner on… until the last few weeks.  Now I needed a bright splash of colour and I was going to buy some trial lippys!
I chose colours that I wouldn’t usually go near (although they don’t look very bright in the pic!)  When my friend handed me my bag with my order inside, I was all giddy!  I’ve even bought myself a proper lip brush so that I can apply it properly in the hope that it won’t have completely faded after my first de-caf!

I’m very excited and will be choosing my 3 retail size  colours out of the 6 trials that I’ve got!  So far, I’m very impressed because as promised, it doesn’t ‘cake’ and glides on smoothly… I’ll tell you which ones I’ve chosen in a coming blog post 🙂
In the meantime what do you use to give yourself a boost?  Do you consciously use colour therapy?  
I’d love to hear from you by way of comment (below) or tweet me @AllSortsHere and use the #TheZenZing hashtag.
Thank you 🙂
