Light it up for BCAM

As I'm sure most of you are aware, October was officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a cause that is extremely close to my heart, so every year I try to at least do something, whether it's big or small, to help make a difference.

I'm very lucky and privileged to work for an amazing company who are very charitable. Avon Cosmetics are one of Breast Cancer Now's official sponsors and every year help make a difference to change lives.

This year we took part in something so exciting… we lit up our office pink!! This was an initiative set by Breast Cancer Now, to help raise awareness while showing support. Many companies across the UK also took part in this brilliant activity and had the press going wild! It was kept a secret until the night of the lighting, and it was so hard to keep it quiet! But it had an amazing turn out and I had everyone messaging me asking what was going on! But they all loved it so it was a great success :)

Making a change

I know I'm writing this post at the end of April, so technically it isn't the beginning of the year anymore - however, when 2015 started, I said I was going to do more activities. I know saying 'activities' is quite an open word and could mean anything, but I just wanted to do more. Do more charity events, do more active events, do more for other people and just get involved more. I didn't want to get to the end of 2015 and be like okay so, what have I actually done this year that's helped other people? Here's a few things that are already sticking out for me:

Charity event

In March, I took part in the Crazy Hats Walk with my work team. The walk is an annual event held at the same place every year and raises money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. I have taken part in the walk a few times because Breakthrough is a charity that is very close to my heart. Charity events always get to me, because you know everyone there has been affected one way or another. Reading everyone's reasons for being there and taking part were inspiring yet emotional.

When we'd finished the walk, it was a great feeling to know I'd helped towards making a difference and knew I had achieved something.

If you live local I would definitely recommend attending the Crazy Hats Walk, nothing beats a fresh Sunday morning walk, especially when it's for such an amazing charity.

Gaining some pinspiration....

I go through stages where I develop a slightly obsessive craze with Pinterest. I feel like it will help me get through life, no matter what mess I'm in. For example; I threw a paddy the other day because my braces were hurting, and I immediately wanted them removed. So I looked at perfect teeth on Pinterest and suddenly felt a lot better. Ok so I won't look anything like these perfect-teethed people, but we can pretend.

If you're a fellow Pinterest addict (the first step is admitting it), you'll know that I could have uploaded 10 million photos below. I chose these select few because at this moment in time they've really stood out to me; Either because I'd secretly love pink hair, want to go live in LA or just because I would like summer to hurry up. Anyway, here's a few pics that have given me some pinspiration…..
