copy-cat her make-up: PREEN FALL 2012

HOW GORGEOUS IS THIS MAKE-UP...

 She created the sporty and modern English look to compliment the Beatrix Potter inspired collection. “I wanted to play off the British feel of the collection and highlight the great prints,” says Westman. “I used neutral colours on the eyes and created a flushed lip to give the girls an outdoorsy yet modern look.”

make-up free / GET GLOWING

{This is a pic of me last year when I first posted about Makeup Free Mondays!}
I HAVEN'T BEEN WEARING MAKE-UP THE LAST COUPLA DAY...
because of my surgery - and it reminded me about a post I did last year about Make-up Free Monday!

I love{d} the idea because it’s all about encouraging self-confidence in ourselves and promoting confidence and inner beauty in others. So I'm adopting again!!!!

+ it's great for your skin

+ it takes you less time to get out of the house

 You can join the GET GLOWING Movement - here's how: 

 1. Don’t wear makeup for at least one day a week (or use less for those who need to do this
in baby steps).

 2. Stop apologising for not wearing makeup, no matter what day of the week it is.

 3. Organise an official Get Glowing/Makeup Free day at your school, work place or with your friends.

 4. Encourage conversations about 'beauty from within' and better body image within your own family and friendships.

 5. Share your makeup free photos by EMAILING ME a pic of you {make-up free} and I'll post it on bellaMUMMA!

Why not try it...
 it's great to give your skin a break from make-up and 'get glowing'
+ it's a bit of fun!

IT'S SO SO SIMPLE & YET IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE...
wear a headband! Yep, it's that easy!

Whether your hair is up or down, it's an excellent way to tame those wayward baby hairs around your fringe to give you a sleek, smooth look ~ or a fab way to give the front fringe area some lift and height.

there are some pretty mazing headbands on the market ~

copy-cat her hair: VICTORIA BECKHAM

VICTORIA BECKHAM MAY HAVE RECENTLY ADMITTED TO BEING 'REALLY TIRED*'
after unveiling two collections during New York Fashion Week, but she looks great and possibly started another of autumn/winter 2012-13's hair trends...

Ponytails may have been a big hit for the past two seasons, but Vicky sported a very up-to-date version at a dinner to celebrate her Victoria by Victoria Beckham collection last weekend.

 Sixties-style volume towards the back of the head and loose and slightly grungy strands pulled out to frame the face - a combo I'm loving!

{*Headlines have been claiming Victoria looks tired and unhappy - but the busy designer says only one of them is true. "Look, if people want to say I'm miserable then so be it. I'm really not," she said. "I have a lot on my plate. I'm not going to lie about it, I'm tired. I'm really tired, but I'm also very happy with my life. I'm basically just like any woman who's working and has lots of children - it's tough. I'm not getting much sleep at all, she says. Harper's not sleeping that great, and I've been taking Skype business calls throughout the night too because of the collections. 'I'm up with the baby, as all mums are, and I wouldn't have it any other way. There's not a team of people doing it for me. And then people want to say I look crap? Well, I'm a working mum, so give me a break."}

I agree, give her a break!
