Lipstick Tuesdays

Let’s face it. Life will chronic illness can be rather dull. And monotonous. And boring. There is often not a lot to look forward to. And when we do have something to look forward to, there is every chance that things won’t quite go to plan because of our health. The most excitement most of us get is when we are able to get dressed by ourselves or brush our own hair.

Every day is much the same for my friend Cara and I. Neither of us get out much and, if and when we do, we suffer terribly for it. We ‘met’ on Foggy Friends a while back and now I count her as one of my favourite people. We text each other daily and her messages chivy me along on even the darkest of days. Everybody needs a Cara!

So every day for us is much the same. That is, except Tuesdays.

I’ve never been a lipstick wearer but I bought some lipstick in the January sales on a whim. Then, so did Cara. As both of us are (mostly) housebound and very often bedbound, we couldn’t help but wonder when we’d actually get a chance to wear it though. Cue Lipstick Tuesdays! The decision was made to spice our lives up a little bit. Why save things for best or for The Real World? So whether it’s a vertically challenged day in bed or one of those rare trips out of the house, we will slap on the lippy and look absolutely fabulous by doing so! Today is a bed day for me, but goodness me do I look dashing in my No7 Classic Rose lippy!!!

If, like us, you need a change from the monotony of chronic illness join us every Tuesday in brightening up even the dullest of days. Who cares if you’re male or female, sloth-like or spritely?! Chances are nobody will see you anyway! Haha! Use the hashtag #lipsticktuesday so we can have a nosey at you and your fabulousness.

Happy Lipstick Tuesday lovelies!

  1. I absolutely love this idea! I have a LOT of lipsticks that I never wear anymore, but this is a perfect excuse to try them. Not so sure about posting a picture of myself, though!
