HELLO! I've missed you guys!! It's been so long since I've been able to blog and I really miss it. I do apologize for my absence as of late. I'm in my last month of school right now, just finished a four week teaching practicum, was volunteering at a charity fashion show and just started working two new jobs (PHEW!). I've been a busy busy bee lately and whenever that happens my makeup blog always seems to suffer. But I'm back (temporarily) with a look that might not be my best or craziest, but it's really special to me. Today I wore all pink makeup for Pink Day!
For those of you who don't know about the cause, today is Pink Day in Canadian Schools. It's all about raising awareness about bullying - especially homophobic bullying - in schools by wearing pink and talking about the importance of acceptance and tolerance. As someone with strong ties to the Queer community I feel especially passionate about promoting schools as a safe space for queer and questioning youth so today I visited a school that I recently taught at to visit the GSA and show my support for their cause. SO, long story short, I decided the best way to be festive was to don bright, beautiful pink makeup with lots of sparkle and shine! Isn't that right, Karen?
Couldn't have said it better myself!
If you want to know more about the cause please visit the Day of Pink website and find out about how you can support this incredibly important cause. And don't forget to go see the new movie Bully, coming out this Spring.
Remember: If you see something, say something! Be strong, stand up and don't stand by. You have the power to prevent hate, everyday.
