Are You Brave Enough To Wear Red Lipstick ?

  Are you brave enough to wear Red Lipstick, I am, I have and I do, I have since I was around 14, this post is not for selling Lipstick but a little shout out and support to those who do the fact that I always wear it, it has of late become so unfashionable to wear the scarlet colour, but I know people frown on it, and think I am some kind of tart, I used to wear it to school, to school I hear you say in horror, yeah really to school, I used to tone it down of course, but I dared to do it yes I did, I was obsessed with make up when I was a teenager.      I walked into my French class and my wonderful French teacher told me to go and wash my face, and another time when walking into assembly was also told to go and wash my face I looked like a clown.  When it became out of fashion I was ashamed of wearing it not wanting to attract attention, or the wrong kind of attention, as I have gotten older I still wear it with pride, you all know readers of this blog that I have a weird obsession with the Colour Red I don't know why I even have a Red Cooker and a Red Computer for God's sake, I also have a terrible obsession with Red Shoes I have written a rather cool article about it on this blog you can find the link here. My Obsession with Red Shoes  I love looking around for different shades and I can wear most but I don't the pink shades suit me they make my skin looks yellow.
   Now I am older I like to put on some Vaseline lip balm and dot the red lipstick over my lips and rub my lips together, you get a subtle red shade and your lips are nice and soft to, just a little tip there for you if you want to try it.   I do like to line my eye's with black eyeliner but no eye shadow, and apply the Red lipstick a little heavier with a lip brush it makes a lovely evening look and it's quite a 50's inspired look.
  Can red lipstick been worn everyday? Yes it can is the answer I do  it lighter in the day and heavyish on an evening out.  I have hazel eye's so I always find it gives a little bit of a sexy look, well I hope it does. So yes be brave and wear the red lipstick or purchase one today, Be brave, you know you want to.

Climate Change Tips, What You Can Do To Help.

With all the talk about climate change, and all the protests in London at the moment, I wanted to do a little research about it, of course I have heard of climate change, since the late eighties, when I first heard of the term The Ozone Layer, we did learn a little about it, but to be truthful it never really went any further than that.  But lately with all the talk around I have been thinking very carefully about this planet we have borrowed to live on.
  I have done a lot of reading on the subject  in the last week and have been surprised how many things I can do to help climate change I  have decided to adopt some if not all of them for myself, some I already have done without realising that I had.  Can you imagine if all of us do our bit for the planet we might be able to save so much of it for future generations. Here are my tips, can you help?
