A day late because old habits die hard.
Yesterday was #GetLippy
day - the highlight of @eveappeal
's May campaign.
I spent the morning telling @global
about my bloody, broken cervix and the afternoon was all about the thank you's to everyone who took part in our #poutandshout
selfies. So I don't feel bad for posting something meant for Friday on Saturday.
Bing. I usually feel like a toddler smearing strawberries over her face when I attempt to wear a red lipstick, but this bad gal from #smashbox
just defies the odds and makes my lips look electric scarlet and not in any way associated with crushed red fruits. Although I am aware I still can't pout to anywhere near a satisfactory degree.
Reason: The amount of men and women who did a #poutforapurpose
yesterday was absolutely incredible. More people than I ever thought possible want to raise awareness that all five gynae cancers exist and that we need to end the taboo, stigma and embarrassment that surround them. If every day were like yesterday, there would be far fewer 24 year old Karen Susan's feeling scared and confused about what was going on in their knickers.
