October is the official month of Breast Cancer Awareness. This is a cause that is very close to my heart as many women in my family have suffered with the disease.
That’s why I’ve decided to write this post to recommend how you can easily help raise awareness and funds for this worthy cause just by visiting the high street. Check out the products to look for below & remember that you can also raise awareness by having a ‘Pink Friday’ event at work, school or at home or even entering the Breast Cancer Care WomenOnly Run this Saturday (Oct 18).
This cute gift, which is on sale NOW, is a total must-have for any beauty lover. Complete with 24 little Ciate treats, including its polishes, paint pots and nail transfers, you definitely won’t struggle for some nail inspo over the festive season!
The calendar, which comes complete in a cute little manor house design, may be a little more pricey than an average advent calendar, at £49, However, that is a huge saving on what it would cost you if you bought all of the items separately.
Beauty advent calendars are still quite new, with some retailers only introducing them last year. However, the ones who did sold out straight away so snap your Ciate one up before they all go!
Just a quick post to show you my new haircut! Now, I know it’s not really that summery to have a fringe & a bob, but I was just so bored with my hair. I had it short and was growing it out, but I couldn’t stand it being to in-between anymore and I didn’t want extensions, so there was just one thing for it – cut it off!
It’s probably a little shorter than I wanted it at the moment, however, hopefully it’ll grow quite quick in the sun so I can make it a bit more versatile. What I do love about a fringe though is that it makes me feel so much more stylish and makes me dress more fashionable I think, as I am trying to match in outfits with my fringe.
Anyway, I just thought I’d show you all. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of my new ‘do in my upcoming posts!
