Nuding Up for #Bloggerswithoutmakeup

Wow – Jodie Anstead at Mummy Mayhem has created some amazing momentum for  #bloggerswithoutmakeup this Friday.  Her blog was so inspirational and has liberated us all to ditch the make up and bare our true selves for one day.

I, like many others have decided to “bare all” a little early and for the record I’m going to keep my nude image up for the rest of May.  

Such a great idea and everyone looks stunning without their make up.    

I did ask my Mike if he would take a “modest” photo of me blogging in the nude.  He said “no”, actually he said “NO, HAVE YOU GONE COMPLETELY MAD?  WHAT IS THIS NEW WORLD OF TWITTER DOING TO YOU?”.  Oh well,  I thought it was a good idea.  

I have to say, a week ago I would never have put this photo on the internet – I too always looked for the best looking photo I could find.  However, I showed it to my Mike and he said “you look beautiful”.   That will do me just fine.


Here is a beautiful song to sum up the essence of what we are all doing.   Watch the clip and listen – it is beautiful.

Have an awesomely natural woman day!

    Another vote for the beauty that is the ‘naked’ Annie!

    Frankly, don’t know why you all think you NEED makeup? Such beautiful faces and smiles!

    After years in retail, including fashion, I’ve got totally out of the habit in the last few years…so I can’t go nude ‘cos I usually am! Maybe I need to come out as a woman of colour instead of my usual B&W self (profile pic), in solidarity…lol. 🙂

  6. Liz says:

    You look gorgeous as always Annie. I’m thinking I should do a pic with makeup since I never wear it lol

  7. Mike was right. You do look beautiful. How great adding the song! Gorgeous.

    The lady at the Myers cosmetics counter, a few years ago,
    on our approach asked what we were looking for?
    “A Deep Red Revlon!” my friend exclaimed as I’d
    offered to purchase one for her as she truly enjoyed
    “the warpaint”, at the time.

    On the ‘earing of the price I let out a,
    “I’m not paying $40.00 for a lipstick!!!”,
    possibly not at regulatory store’ volume.

    The poor retail assistant slightly flinched,
    not a good look in a fashion area, and
    realising it was another of those “Take us
    anywhere but out,” situations looming I quizzed
    my friend on what she had and we decided to go
    halves in her “beautifier.”

    The assistant, sale finalised, was mildly sedated
    with the epinephrine etc that releases I hear on
    a good retailer making a sale, or so I am told.

    That was a long time ago, thank heavens, and since
    my friend enjoys little need or want for a head-dress of gloss
    and colour, the times I see her, and she always looks good,
    as do they all.

    I am glad it continues.
