Take part in Bare Escentuals TRY. BELIEVE. LOVE. campaign!

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 6 - 2011

In celebration of International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8th March, Bare Escentuals will be heading up a campaign they’re calling TRY. BELIEVE. LOVE. at three different locations across the UK.

They Say

At each of these locations, Bare Escentuals will be connecting with women, sharing the love, and allowing them to discover the foundation that started the makeup revolution.  Each will have the chance to receive a limited-edition Bare Escentuals Friendship Bracelet, together with an invitation to go to one of the Bare Escentuals counters for a complimentary make-under.  What’s more, each Friendship Bracelet has 5 mini-make-under certificates attached so women can share the love and make-under experience with their friends.‪‪

If you fancy getting your hands on one of these limited edition bracelets, head to one of the following locations on Tuesday 8th March to join in:

  • London – Covent Garden Piazza
  • ‪Manchester – Trafford Centre
  • ‪Birmingham – Bull Ring‪‪

I’m looking forward to taking my camera along to cover the event in Covent Garden, so if you go – don’t forget to say “Cheese!”


Avon Wonderful Women Competition Entry

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 5 - 2010

In honour of International Women’s Day, Avon invited me to write about the most remarkable woman in my life for their “Wonderful Women” competition…

Now, most daughters think their Mum is the best, but mine really is! 😉 She was 40 when I was born with more than a few complications. I was 3 months premature and back then, less babies survived those stacked odds. She spent months in hospital with me until I was strong enough to return home.

Mum retired in 1993 after developing a rare form of breast cancer. She was diagnosed in November, but didn’t tell anyone until January so as not to spoil Christmas. It’s funny, because despite numerous, gruelling operations, I never once believed that I’d lose her… she made cancer seem of such minor importance that it wasn’t until years later that I appreciated how close we’d all come.

One death-defying manoeuvre accomplished, Mum was finally free to enjoy retirement. For a few months at least, until my Nan developed Alzheimer’s and Mum insisted that her mother-in-law come live with us. My lovely Nan passed away three years ago after twelve years in Mum’s complete care. Twelve years is a long time for an Alzheimer’s sufferer to survive and Mum made sure that each of Nan’s remaining days were worth living for. My Mum is one strong and loyal lady, my remarkable woman.
