My name is Jacinta, I live in Ireland and I'm a 30 year old mother of 2 boys who was diagnosed with breast cancer on October 1st, 2010. I've been with my husband, G, since we were both 17 so thats nearly 14 years now! I decided to start this blog as a way of keeping track of my treatment and also to show people how make up can make you feel good about yourself, whether or not you have cancer!
This time last year, my life was normal.......... I had recently had a baby and gotten married. I was celebrating my 30th birthday and everything was hunky dory, 10 days later I found out I had cancer! Sometimes I still find it hard to believe that I had cancer but I know my life will never be the same again!! I'm now in contact with several other young people who have cancer and its good to have others to talk to who know what you're going through and give each other support!
I only got into make up a few years ago and have a slight addiction now! But, I don't smoke and I don't drink much so make up is what I spend my money on! It really gives me the confidence to face the world, which wasn't easy to do when I had no eyebrows, eyelashes or hair!! But, because I had 2 young children to look after I had no choice but to get up and face the world each day! I love all kinds of brands, from the cheapest to the most expensive, I have a bit of everything! I've also gotten back into nail polish in the last few months so I'm now addicted to that too!!!
