Pink Shirt Day- April 13

April 13th (a Friday) is Pink shirt day. If you don't know what that is, here's an exerpt of the letter from the Director of Education and Chair of the TDSB:

April 13 has been designated as Pink Day.  This day is based on the actions in 2007 of two Nova Scotia Grade 12 students who marshalled their friends to wear pink in support of a younger student who had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.  The e-mail campaign mounted by the older students resulted in not just 50 of their friends but in hundreds of students turning up the next day wearing pink in support of the bullied student.
The Pink Day that started in a Nova Scotia high school has now spread across Canada. TDSB schools have participated in Pink Day celebrations for several years, but this is the second year we are supporting anti-bullying through a Board-wide call to action.  We urge every school and every staff member and student to join the anti-bullying campaign by wearing pink on Wednesday, April 13.  Show your support against bullying and for tolerance.

I think it's a great idea, pink being such a taboo colour and all. I mean, we've all heard those completely nasty and rude comments about being gay or lesbian just because you don't wear the colours your gender are suppose to wear. It also makes different sexual orientations sound bad and wrong, when they're totally not. This helps create a world where people aren't haressed for stupid stuff like this. It won't fix the worrld's problems, but it's a start.

Animal Testing

I am a cruelty free cosmetics buyer. Or try the very best I can to be one. Which means, on this blog, you won't find Sally Hasen, Covergirl, Maybelline, Rimmel or other companies that do on this site. Why? Because it's wrong. Cosmetics are such unnecessary things. Don't get me wrong, I love a good lip gloss as much as the next girl, but I don't think it's worth the life of a helpless animal, stuck in a small metal cage and painfully experimented on until they die. I'm not trying to shame people who do buy cosmetics tested on animals, I'm just stating my opinion and hoping that you reconsider your opinion, or perhaps find out that some companies do test on animals and which ones they are.I have found many brands that are cheaper AND better quality and that don't hurt bunnies. Examples include, but aren't limited to LA Colors, Claire's/Icing, Sinful Colors and Wet N Wild. I know I can't change anyone elses opinion, and that some people (anyone who lives in China) may not have a choice, but I know I do, and hope I can help convince  you animal testing is wrong, unnecessary, and show you some great alternatives.

1 CENT NAIL POLISHES! And, no! I am not kidding!

Well even though I'm sure most of the population knows about this, I figured I'd tell you too. The nail polish company Julep does a beauty box, similar to Birchbox and other ones like it, but with nail polish and hand care items, like hand creams, base/top coats and cuticle oil. This month you can even get real Argan Oil! And when you use the code PENNY or, COLORS4ONE  you get three nail polishes or two plus the argan oil for 1 cent! And it's free shipping too! Now just try not to drool on your computer. Just click here.

I'll be swatching and reviewing my colours once I get them and my new camera. For now, here's the picture and description of the colour in March's It Girl Box (aka soon to be mine!) from the Julep website. I decided against the argan oil since I already had some and personally don't care too much for it.

It Girl
  • Leah, vivid and refreshing grass green with a hint of shimmer.
  • Helena, ultra-saturated fuchsia. Looks great on all skin tones.
  • Melissa, sheer opalescent shimmer adds a soft glow when used alone and a high-fashion holographic effect when used over another colour.

                                                              Sounds great, doesn't it!
