NOTD: Shout Out to London!

Posted on: August 1, 2012

20120801-004455.jpg I first saw this little kit of 3 pink polishes about a year ago, on my favorite blog ever, the BritishBeautyBlogger (BBB). Never in a million years would I think I would ever own this kit. But, I am a lucky girl with a very nice friend who writes my second favorite blog ever, called Diana’sMake-UpWorld.
Diana and I put together a small swap and included in my package from her was this little kit. I did not ask for it, but Diana knew I read the BBB every day and Diana also knows it is important to me to support important causes. Which is what this little kit does, besides making my nails look fab, it raised a lot of money for breast cancer research in the UK.
The story goes, the beauty uk wanted to come up with a plan to raise money for breast cancer research. Beauty uk teamed up with Paint for Life and came up with this brilliant idea to produce 3 shades of pink, named hope, love and strength. If I remember correctly a contest was held to name the colors and a young man whose mother was afflicted with this disease came up with the names. All 3 shades are perfect shades of pink and like my friend Diana knew, I love that £1 from every sale goes directly to breast cancer research.

20120801-005848.jpg I know I get a ton of hits on my blog from the UK, so please, if you see this little set for sale, please pick it up. Even if you don’t care for the colors it would make a great little birthday gift for one of your friends or even for your Mom.

20120801-010419.jpg I’m sorry about the goofy photos, but I wanted to show you how I used all 3 colors today. Each hand is painted different, and you know me, I like different.
Thanks for stopping y today and please stop by my friends blog. She is so knowledgable about skin care and does a lot more reviews of products than I do. Please visit Diana’s blog

Hope you have a great day!💅

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
