Dead Good Day


So it is my favourite time of year, no forget Halloween I'm talking about the Day Of The Dead. If you have never heard of it have a read here, so now that you are clued up you can see why this is a great celebration. I love that it celebrates people you have lost, in colour and decoration. Why can't you be joyful about those people, I don't wish to remember the pain they went through. I want to think about the fact I was lucky enough to know them and the good times we shared. I have lost  A LOT ! of good people in my life, and I think about they all the time.

So my wonderful followers, I hope you will celebrate those you have lost, and enjoy this moment too. Sorry I have no outfit today but I will be doing some photo's of my week and so cool makeup looks. Plus no one has left feedback for what they would like to see.

Come on guy's and gal's what would you like to see in my next post? 

So there is also some cool events going on like at Lush stores they are having this:
Come along to your local Lush shop on Saturday 30th October and join in the Day of the Dead celebrations! Call your local shop or check their Facebook pages for details.

From October 31st to November 2nd, the people of
Mexico celebrate el Día de los Muertos - the Day
of the Dead! The festival is a traditional and beautiful
celebration of the lives of those who have passed on
and allows the living to remember them in their own way.
The festival encompasses bright costumes, dancing
skeletons, candy skulls, showers of marigolds and the odd
indulgence in a tequila or two...
Hannah, our ambassador of fun and frolics, adores The Day of the Dead, and her passion for the celebration is so infectious that we had to create a range of products that would honour the truth and beauty of such a magical day.
To both Hannah and the spirits of those who have left us, this one's for you.

Also known as El Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead is a Mexican festival where families and friends join together to celebrate the lives of departed loved ones. Central to the festivities is the ofrenda, an altar piled high with flowers, food, and other offerings. If you don't have the chance to make it all the way over to Latin America for the 2010 Day of the Dead, London restaurants, bars, and cultural venues are putting on Mexican themed events to help you join in with all the fun.

Fancy a free shot of tequila to get you in the party mood? Last year, Mexican restaurant Wahaca gave out shots of the fiery drink at its venues in Covent Garden and Westfield Shopping Centre, and there was also a special Day of the Dead cocktail too.
