I hope you like it!

Topic: Anything but beauty / My Friend's Father Is Dying...

I really can’t add much to this topic, aside from re-iterating what others have said about being there for your friend & asking if she needs anything, even if it’s just to let some horrible words out. Sorry to hear about this Little Jo.

I too have a little bit of insider knowledge on this, as I lost my grandfather early last year to pancreatic cancer. My Mum was his primary carer in his dying days (she’s an only child, his 2nd wife had passed away a couple of years before) & I know we were all conscious of asking her whether she was ok & if she needed anything, as were (at least) 2 of her closest friends. Like misfortune8 said, laughter is still important even at the worst of times and we still laugh today about some of the silly things my grandfather had done or said, despite his absence.

Also sorry to hear about the losses of some of the other BH beauties too. I’d like to give teenage Arty Girl a hug too. :o)

Thanks Seashells :).

All you lovely ladies don’t know how much your kind comments mean to me this day. It know that my mother’s passing was years ago but these kind words are forever appreciated :).

Topic: Celebrity watch / Favourite Childhood Band/Singer?

Everyone is probably hearing about all the new bands out at the moment, you daughters are probably obsessing over One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer, but who did you like back in the day?

My favourite one was and still is Michael Jackson of course. I am such an eighties kid, I love Madonna, George Michael, Prince, Queen, Elton John. So many! But I was a crazy Michael Jackson fan! Crazy!

Thank you all so much for taking the time to read and send messages on my post. I’m off work today before I go to see her I just feel flat. The hard part is that this is not about me at all and there is nothing I can do or say to fix anything.. I really appreciate all the kind words and sharing your loss with all of us. Thank you all so much for the support and help. I am deeply sorry to hear a lot of you have experienced loss and I hope I can be there for my friend to listen and help her through this time. I have just sent her a msg saying I can go to the shops just send me a list – I didn’t even think how hard it would be to go shopping and having the sales person ask how your day is. I will also definitely keep in mind that the hard part will be after he passes. Thank you very much again to each and every one of you lovely ladies. BH is a wonderful support and I’m sorry I haven’t been very active in the forums for so long xxx

You are welcome Little Jo . Our thoughts are always with you. BH is a good support network :).

Sending hugs to Arty Girl, Lucrecia629, Temperance and Petal, for the tragic premature loss of your parents. It’s so terribly unfair when such young people are forced to face something so cruel, and the fact that you all felt so alone at the time is just heartbreaking. I know that your parents would be tremendously proud of the strong women you have all become xoxo

Thank you so much cat lover.

Would you believe it ? This is the first time that I have spoken about this event in my life on a social website.

Thank you to all. It has been good being able to share.

Topic: Anything but beauty / My Friend's Father Is Dying...

My mother passed away when I was 22. She had been sick for almost a year and I was her primary caregiver during that time. The thing I struggled with was that all of the focus was on her, as it should have been, but no one noticed that I was struggling too. What I would have appreciated more than anything is just for someone to look me in the eye and ask, “How are YOU doing?”, and then just listen while I got it off my chest. Maybe a hug. Maybe some recognition that I was in pain too and that it was okay. Instead I just kept getting these non-verbal cues from everyone that my suffering was not important. It took over a decade for me to be able to process that I was still carrying that pain around because at the time, no one acknowledged it and I was made to feel that I couldn’t acknowledge it either.

There’s a lot of pressure from the outside world to remain positive at all times. No one likes a complainer! But some people just need to be able to say, “This really sucks and I hate it!” Maybe your friend doesn’t need that, but maybe she does. Just allowing her to say that and to be able to acknowledge with her, “Yeah, it really does!”, without judging… For me that would have been the best thing someone could have done for me.

I hear where you are coming from *Lucrecia629*and I sympathise with you. Carers WA is a good organisation to belong to because they do concentrate on the needs and feelings of the Care Giver in such situations as yours. They give so much emotional support when one needs it most.

Topic: Anything but beauty / My Friend's Father Is Dying...

At the age of 18, I knew that my mother was dying. I visited her in hospital, then rushed out of the room to have a good cry.

Two days later, the announcement came over the School Intercom for me to go to the Principal’s Office and he broke the news. I didn’t go home because there wasn’t anybody home at the time. So I just remained at School. During recess, not one of my friends came to console me though they all knew what had happened. Instead, they all acted as per normal and I found that odd. It took me many years to realise that their “indifference” may have been due to them not knowing how to handle death. After all, we were in Year 11. But at that time, I felt as if no one cared.

You are doing the right thing Little Jo by being by your friend’s side in her time of need. Of all people, I should know.

Arty Girl, when I read your post, I wanted to send your teenage self a hug! When my parents died, a friend give me some emotional support, but nobody else asked how I was. I suspect this is because Western society doesn’t deal with death very well and people are often scared to confront their own fears around death.

Thank you so much Petal .

It literally took me years to work this out.

My mother was my “best friend”. I was sent ahead of her to live in Australia the year I turned 18. It came as a shock when the family discovered that she had a brain tumour. So she was flown over here because we have good surgeons here. Unfortunately, the brain tumour was too far advanced. She died 5 days later after arriving in Australia.

Topic: Skincare / Botox. at 22

Isn’t 22 a bit young for botox?? I feel that the skin is still supple and elastic at this age although it may be something to consider further down the track rather than right now. You may be damaging your skin by prematurely which could be more harmful than helpful in the long term.

Topic: Help! I’ve got a beauty dilemma / Is it okay to use an old unopened product?

Hello lovelies
I seem to have hoarded way too many beauty products and I’ve recently started using my stash from about a year ago.
What do you think? Is it safe and basically okay to use an unopened beauty product from a year or even a couple of months back. I don’t see an expiry date on the product.
How do you decide? Do you stash away beauty products, including makeup and skincare?
I’d love to know so I can use my products more wisely and safely.
Thanks :)

GO FOR IT! Everything is sealed air tight anyway – it’s a waste of money throwing them out!

I agree, thanks Chris221.

Sure way to cover tipwear: glitter (in this case, flakie) tip gradient!  I love the color combination!

Polished, I’m loving this elegant, sparkly mani :)
