Forbidden

You may know that Dana over at The Wonder Forest has a cool link up called Self Portrait Saturday.
Each week, there is a new theme, to challenge you in taking some portraits of yourself.
This weeks theme is Props! As soon as I read that, I knew exactly what I would use.
My mind instantly went to this giant circus lollipop Ive had for several months now, maybe even a year. LOL
I had intended on using it for a cute photography prop for my kids.
But then that just never happened.....
So I thought that *I* would use it as a prop for this weeks link up, as a fun twist...
Considering candy and sweets are kind of "forbidden" to me now with this whole "biggest loser" challenge Ive got going on!
Since I decided on such a fun bright prop, I wanted to make myself pop with color too!
So I did my eyes in a very whimsical fashion, using the same colors found in the lollipop.
No worries, I didnt "cheat" on my new diet. I didn't actually eat or even lick the sucker.
I was pretty disciplined. ;)
The eye shadows I used are all from my NYX Loose Pearl Eye Shadow Collection.
Colors used: Penny Pearl, Yellow Gold Pearl, Jade Pearl, Space Pearl & White Pearl.
I had a LOT of fun doing these. I encourage you all to check out Dana's new link up series!
And challenge yourself with a few self portraits of your own. ♥

If you want to link up too, check out the party here:

Much Love & Hugs,

  7. WOW girl, those are some awesome pictures. I love the shadow, and it's not TOO out there, I would actually wear that it's really pretty. Maybe minus the little tear drops, hehe.

    I am checking out that linky right now. How fun!!!

    P.s. Did you take all those yourself?

    Hugs, Bella
