I had so much fun doing SaraMay’s FOTD Challenge yesterday that I decided to do today’s challenge too – Candy.  When I think of candy, I think of lots of (artificial) colours.  I just went crazy with the colour and here is what I came up with…

FOTD, colourful, candy, make-up


My right eye is based on Skittles and M&Ms.  My left eye is based on those strawberries and cream twirly lollipops.  My lips are like mixed berry candy.  Pretty colourful huh?

FOTD, candy, cosmetics

Tempted to keep the make-up on till my Husband comes home.  He gets freaked out when I put on too much make-up.  He tends to prefer me au naturale.

To intensify the shades of the eyeshadows, I find that Lime Crime Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper (see what I did there – candy – get it? Ok, I’m not funny!) does a fantastic job.

I couldn’t find any lollies in the house to pose with but I found my colourful handbag chain and put it on top of my head.

OMG Moment Of The Day!

As I was typing up this blog post, my postman knocked on the door and I went out looking like this :

FOTD, Candy, Make-Up

Okay, how awkward?!!!  I’m wearing my cutesy PJs and I look like a clown LOLOL.  I saw him stifle laughter and I couldn’t have gone any redder with the amount of make-up I had on.  Groan!  How embarrassing!!

EDIT :  Sheeeeeesh!!!  ANOTHER Postman rocked up at my door!!!!!!!!!
