Apologies to all my readers for the delay since my last blog post. I’ve had a very busy month as I was preparing to move home from London to Ireland. I’m happy to report that my husband and I have arrived safe and sound yesterday to my home town Mallow, Co. Cork where we will both live for now.
Now, to catch up my blog posts, a look back at my 35 minute Chemospiration speech that I did on 3rd September in Sam McCauleys Chemist in Douglas. Teaming up with Marie Keating Foundation and Theya Lingerie, it was such a fun, uplifting and informative day. A nurse from Marie Keating Foundation was in store to speak to customers in confidence about any health concerns they had. Theya Lingerie specialise in post-op lingerie for women who had breast cancer surgery, cosmetic surgery and radiotherapy. Having tried and tested a couple of so called post-op bras in the UK, I can say hands down that Theya’s bras are the best. They are super soft with no elastic band and make the ideal gift if you know someone going through breast cancer. For October’s pink month, they are donating 15% of their sales to Marie Keating Foundation. http://theya.healthcare/
My speech went really well, the energy of the crowd was electric and there was a great turn out. I was very touched by those who came up to speak with me afterwards, sharing their personal stories with me. We truly are all part of a caring cancer community.
What I wore:
- Neck piece: 365 Fashions Ebay
- Earrings: Claire’s Accessories
- Gold wire bracelet: Oliver Bonas
- Eye-shadows: Sparkling burnt orange Barry M Dazzle Dust on the inside & mat MAC black on the outside.
- Outfit: My skirt is actually a black body-con strapless dress that I pulled down to my rib cage to make it look like a pencil skirt. After tucking my Next top into it, I then pulled it up and out to disguise the top of the dress but to also give the top that baggy willowy effect.
