Liptember 2011

“Liptember? What is Liptember??!!” I hear you cry. Well settle down for a minute and let me explain. Liptember is a once a year, month long campaign to raise awareness and funds for women’s health. Funds raised through lippy sales, sponsorship, fundraising and direct donations are donated to the Centre For Women’s Mental Health and Lifeline Australia. You may have heard the word Liptember floating around the blogsphere lately, and as I’m about to embark on my very first challenge, I’m going to put it out there and ask you to hop on board the charity chain and sponsor me to wear the hell out of a Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm in September! This year’s Liptember lippy is the Burt’s Bees Hibiscus Tinted Lip Balm, which can be purchased from the essentials counter at any Myer department store throughout Australia. Once you’ve purchased your lippy you can sign up at the Liptember website and start asking people to sponsor you. (Like I have, and am about to do.) And then you wear that gorgeous lip colour with pride all throughout the month of September. If you’re not planning on signing up for this year’s challenge please feel free to head over to the Liptember site and sponsor me. (If you are going to sign up and require sponsorship please post a comment with your details so I can add you to the bottom of this post so people can donate to you if they wish to do so.) Happy Liptember to all!
