First of all, I am so sorry that I haven’t posted for a while.  I have been on holiday in France for the summer.  I have had such a lovely time in the sunshine with family and friends, but have  had a chance to catch up on other beauty blogs  and vlogs and get inspiration for post ideas that I think are relevant to young teens.

I have been trying to tweet more and have loved finding famous quotes about beauty by inspirational people to share.  I love words by Audrey Hepburn and have been fascinated by her consistent message that beauty comes from within.  You can’t just make yourself beautiful by slapping on make-up.  So, I started researching this a bit more and came across Monica Kade.  She has an interesting story and helps coach adults and teens understand their self worth and live their ‘truth’.  Monica has very kindly put together her top points for helping us to ‘rock our real beauty’.  See what you think ….

“Beauty is YOU. Make-up is just an expression of who you are.”  – Monica Kade  

Here are some life tips for ensuring you are being your beauty!

1  Before you put on make up, look in your eyes. Connect with your inner self. Get to know the real you.You may feel this is silly or feels kind of funny, but if you can create a good connection with yourself and love yourself no matter what the external says, while you’re still young, this will give you so much confidence, peace and love for your self when you’re older.

2  Take a moment each day to appreciate your face, your body, no matter what size or shape it is.  Everyone is beautiful. If you’re having a bad skin day, don’t beat yourself up. It’s temporary. Always remember that. Don’t make your worth be dependant on your beauty.








3  Be yourself! Make-up is not who you are, it’s a way you get to you express yourself. If you enjoy beauty products and have fun creating new looks, that’s wonderful – that’s your creative side coming out. So have FUN with it, but don’t make it who you are.









4  Appreciate yourself! When you moisturise your face, do so with love and care. Appreciate your skin, your lips, your eyes, your nose and everything else. Your inner dialogue and thoughts affect the way your feel and the way your body reacts. So be nice to yourself. It will keep you looking radiant as you age.

(I’ve recently been using PONDS Hydrating Moisturiser, it’s so gentle and hydrating on the skin)









5  Remember that life is about having fun!  Every day wake up and ask yourself, “how much fun can I handle today?’ This will put you in the perfect frame of mind for attracting lots of fun.  Do what you love and love what you do.

6 Never forget that the make-up does not make you better or more beautiful. It simply enhances the beauty that is already there!

    I just checked out your block and this was the first post I saw and I couldn’t have said it better myself. I feel like so many people have these negative views of spending time on your makeup or skincare when really it’s just a part of taking care of yourself and self expression. There’s nothing materialistic or superficial about it. Love this and your blog, will definitely be following you and checking out Monica Kade
