Bare & Beautiful

'We never noticed the beauty because we were too busy trying to create it'

Have you ever had one of those cringe-worthy moments when your running late for work or school and you decide that adding an extra 20 minutes to your lateness by applying your makeup isn't cutting it. So you head in make-up-less only to hear from a colleague or classmate "you look tired" or "You don't look well"... Yep...

I'm actually starting to get a complex and sometimes I feel as though I'm doing the world no good without applying my trusty concealer, mascara and eyebrow pencil, only to have to wipe it all off at the end of the day and start again the following morning...

Men have it so GOOD...

Bare & Beautiful is a blogger movement that I want to start with all you beauties.
All you have to do is a take a picture of your Bare and Beautiful face and write 5 random things that you love about yourself, then tag 5 bloggers to join in on the fun!

So here goes....


1. I love my birthmark on my neck that looks like a hickey... always a great conversation starter.
2. I love that even though I moan about everything in the world my friends and family still put up with me.
3. I love that I have a 10 year son that is growing into a little/big man. YIKES!
4. I love my need to always have something going on - even if it does run me ragged!
5. I love my make-up-less face because it shows all my scars and war wounds and most importantly it shows that I am not perfect.

****

I'm encouraging bloggers and anyone else who wants to join in on the fun to do the same and expose their Bare & Beautiful face. 
As women we feel the pressure of having to look perfect and yet your real beauty lies within.
Exposing our make-up-less faces will not only show that we are beautiful inside but outside as well. 

Lets get this movement going!

I am tagging the following bloggers

Happy Girl

"Happiness is not ready made. It comes from your own actions" - Dalai Lama


I will be the first to admit that I embrace negativity like a duck to water. Anything negative that comes my way I take it in and give it right back with negativity. 
I hate knowing that something so trivial can affect how I think and feel but it's something that I'm learning to control thankfully

****
I've noticed that I smile for no reason at all but because I am Happy
I am able to appreciate the good in people because I am Happy.
... and what's more important is when I'm faced in a difficult situation that gives me a chance to act out - I breathe and let it go - because sometimes it's easier to smile and walk away.

Bitch Please!


to the condescending woman who was listening in on my conversation when it had nothing to do with her.

to the people that can tell you everything that I get up to via my Instagram but doesn't follow me... follow me dammit!

to the ignorant idiots that call me CHINESE. I am VIETNAMESE... There is a difference!

to the promoters on Facebook who constantly send me rave invites... NO I don't want to attend!

to the primary/secondary school acquaintances who have only said more than two words to me throughout school that are now automatic friends due to social media... 'What did you say your name was again? and i know you from where? Elementary school? .... I don't know you maaaaan!'

to the man on the train that coughed all over me and didn't apologise... I fear I have sars now...

to the Chanel Vintage bag, price tag... you will be mines one day!

and most importantly to the slimly Instagram DM messengers... I DON'T KNOW YOU!

Bitch Please!

Mirror Selfie!

A few months back Fazetees Founders Ruby Moore and Rachael Smith invited me down to the official shoot for their new T-Shirt line called Fazetees.
You can read more about it here.
As a thank you for coming down they sent me one of their cheeky T-Shirts.

It's definitely a 'Conversation Starter' and that's what I love about these bold ass tees. 

Check out the full range here!


Keep it Fazetees...
