Dream Week 460Wow, I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by in 2014!

Here we are again, coming into one of my favourite weeks of the year Dream Week”.

Here at The Culture Concept one of our chosen charities is Look Good Feel Better.

As many of you may know I also volunteer for this amazing initiative.

This will be my 5th year helping with the workshops.

They are now run nation wide in 180 locations around Australia.

An army of 1500 volunteers brighten the day of around 10,000 participants every year.

UnknownLook Good, Feel Better is not just in Australia, but worldwide.Other countries that have adopted the fantastic idea are Brazil, Italy, France, USA and the UK to name but a handful.

We have seen the difference, first hand that LGFB makes to peoples well being at a time when things can get fairly tough.

This being the case, Dream Week is so important to raise awareness and much needed funds to keep our perfumed juggernaut rolling.

We are encouraging you all to share your pretty pouts on social media!

It’s easy really.

All you have to do is snap a seflie and post it to instagram, twitter or FaceBook with the hashtag #[email protected] wearing your bold new hues.

Followers are also encouraged to nominate three friends to take on the challenge. And why not?

Have some fun with your besties and play around with some new looks. I know I will, I just have to work out who I am going to ask to take on the dare.

So ladies, I can’t wait to see you all in your new lipsticks next week.
