Get those make-up wipes out for a #nomakeupselfie...

My four day weekend has been a lovely luxury this week. I've been an angel daughter and spring-cleaned the house, acted host for ten of my favourite girlies (cooking pizza at 4am) and broken my 'heathly eating' proposal for an Indian curry last night... However today's post is a little break from the chaos to tell you a little bit about some great fund raising...

As you've all probably seen the #nomakeupselfie campaign has taken the world of Social Media by storm. Girls all around the UK (and further afield) have been ditching the makeup, to make the bold move of taking an 'au natural selfie' in aid of Cancer Research UK. In the space of a week, an additional £2 million has been raised through the campaign, which is a huge achievement - and it's ever growing.

As I've already published my selfie to Facebook, I thought I'd also post it here!
I myself have seen loved ones fight cancer, and as the battle continues, I always stay positive that organisations like Cancer Research UK take the small steps to help beat it.
I'm hoping to encourage you all to participate, whether it's on Facebook or your own blog - to get spreading the word...

What's great about this campaign is it's unexpected popularity! I always feel great doing something for charity, and by removing the makeup, so many people have felt that in itself is an achievement and worth raising money for! It takes a few seconds to get that early morning selfie before the make-up is applied, and would be amazing to see that £2 million increase even further!

To take part, all you have to do is post your own #nomakeupselfie to facebook/twitter/blog and make a donation to Cancer Research UK, either online at:, or by texting BEAT to 70007 to donate £3.

Let me know if you decide to take your own selfie, please let me know, and drop me a link if you post it to your blog too. Lets fight Cancer together!

Lots of Love,
