And The Oscar Nod For The Best Scratch Ever Goes To…

Wynn’s Over Lice™! No, not really, but wouldn’t that be grand? We reckon that if there ever was a category for best scratch or three in a YouTube video, Wynn’s would be a shoe-in. Even though Wynn’s Over Lice™ takes getting rid of head lice very seriously, it doesn’t mean we can’t have fun while we are doing it. Do check out the current series of three, fun, 1 minute videos that are sure to generate a scratch and a giggle or more. They’re totally fun!

If you enjoy these fun videos as we are sure you will, Wynn’s would be delighted if you’d like them and or leave comment. Wynn’s Over Lice™ is also on Twitter and Facebook too. Thanks! x

Here’s Hoping Absence Does Make The Heart Grow Fonder!

Hello Beauties!

I know it has been donkey’s years since I’ve posted on my blog. Oh, the shame! I haven’t been 100% AWOL though, it’s more like 98.7%. As I have been gleefully working away doing all the beauty-FULL stuff that I love, but just in different guises. My latest adventure has been to finally get around to bottling a really wonderful all natural, exceedingly effective, Australian made head lice treatment that not only gets rid of head lice, but leaves you with really amazing hair!

As many of you would know, I have a gorgeous tribe of children, seven delightful cherubs to be exact. And more to the point, they have ALL been blessed with some of the thickest, longest, most delectably curly hair you can get, which while at primary school, has proven to be the perfect head lice magnet imaginable. Talk about mixed blessings. Sigh. So, seeing that their hair is such a nit-magnet, I have had plenty to do with getting rid of those often itchy nuisances, sadly. I’ve tried much of the products available on the market, just short of Napalm, and never really got wholly satisfactory results.

Seeing that necessity is the mother of invention, I made some kick butt hair stuff myself. The really cool aspect about developing a head lice product yourself and living and breathing all things beauty as I do, was that I was able to source and then create a treatment that uses the most top shelf ingredients available, that works and delivers great, head lice-free hair. So without further ado, it is my complete pleasure to introduce you to Wynn’s Over Lice™.

Wynn’s Over Lice™, quite naturally…does great hair!

Gosh, is it ever so lovely to be back. But most importantly though, thank you so very much for dusting off our Get Even More Gorgeous With Beauty Marked! URL and coming by for a visit. You’ve totally made my day!

If There Was Such A Thing As Telepathic Writing.

You have no idea how many BM! stories I have put together and practically written them verbatim in my mind (easily hundreds), but not actually gotten around to putting pen to paper or rather fingers to keyboard to upload, which is more to the point. It is times like these when telepathic writing would be massively handy. I have been so busy with the physical, day to day, chore-like stuff that being a mother of 7 children commands, that I haven’t been able to express myself, Beauty Marked!-wise, literally (I suspect there is a bad pun in there somewhere) for ages. So, I made a pact with myself that I was going to let something, by way of errands, slide at least once a week for the next little while to literally and joyously put pen to paper and get back into the swing of doing what I truly adore and am so very passionate about: Getting Even More Gorgeous With Beauty Marked!. Now to choose if it will be tending to the laundry, which has worked its way into a rather tortured abstract/some-what artistic (if you squint and tilt your head about 35 degrees to the left that is) pile of clothes, the much needed culling and charity binning of too small, out dated clothes, shoes or toys that seem to have amassed over the last while, or herding the thriving, not so small colony of dust bunnies that have taken up residence in what seems like every nook and cranny in my home/demolition site? Hmm. Decisions, decisions. I’m not sure what will give, but it will have to be something because I need to feed my spirit and get back to doing (fully) what I love. Plus, as everyone knows…chores keep (sadly), now don’t they?

Looking forward to catching your very lovely self soon!

Beauty Marked! xx

Beauty Reminded.

“The important thing is to always remember how beautiful you are and to remember that the world around you will not particularly tell you this, so you will have to be real strong in remembering it for yourself. All the validation that is going to come to you about how good you are, in terms of your essential nature, is the validation in which you will give to yourself. Because if you don’t give yourself that validation then even if somebody else is trying to give it to you, you won’t believe them. ” -Marianne Williamson

A Beauty Down…But Most Certainly Not Out.

Hello Lovelies,

Just a wee post to let you know I haven’t been “as” AWOL as it may seem. I am currently, more graciously so at times than at others, incubating a soon-to-be bouncing BM! beauty to round out my lusciously large tribe of children, and it seems I am really meant to get the FULL experience this time around. I have been ordered strict bed rest for the bulk of the second trimester which I am currently midway through. *happy dance* When all is going along swimmingly, I am allowed to serve my sentence of bed rest at home (hence the odd sneaky post while allowed, ever so briefly, to venture to my Obstetrician’s appointments etc.) but at times I am required to be under the watchful eye of the midwives and other medicos at the maternity hospital for a spell, hence the sporadic posts. All and all, I just wanted to let the bestest, most loving, and ultra gorgeous readers in the world know: I may be down for the moment, but I am most certainly not out. Baby Beauty Marked! is due in very early May, so judging how fast time always seems to fly, I am sure to be back in the beauty saddle before too long. Plus, you know me, I am, indeed, still continuing to scribe and research much of what this beautiFULL world has to offer (especially for those cheeky ones of us on bed rest…you’d be surprised) while laying low and very much looking forward to continuing to gorgeously share it all with you. I mean really, as we all well know, I just can’t help myself now can I? Tragic, but true.

Just for the moment,

BM! xx

NB. I pinned up the magnificent muse pictured above just because she reminds me exactly how one is properly meant to “do” bed rest.
