rings: jwlry, market stall & love hearts and crosses *

Its Wear it Pink day, So hence the pink! Breast Cancer hasn't personally affected me, thankfully, but Cancer awareness is something I feel quite strongly about. My male best friend died of stomach cancer in 2010 at the age of 18. Was one of the most heart wrenching 8 months of my life, seeing someone suffer so badly that you loved so much was heartbreaking. I was always thankful to the nurses that looked after him and how they made his last few months as comfortable as they could. It amazes me how passionate all my friends now are for raising money to help all forms of cancer. I even posed topless for one of those nudey WI inspired calenders. I think there should be more awareness of all cancers, male and female. But if you wanted to donate to Breast Cancer you can do here.

I'm wearing a absolutely gorgeous Juicy Couture sweater, Its the most expensive thing I own clothing wise apart from my designer bags & my topshop coat. However Juicy Couture "gifted" me the jumper for going to their Fashion Night Out event! Its so soft and cosy its unbelievable! I probably wouldn't have bought it myself because of the price, but it is absolutely gorgeous and I cant sing its praises enough! Just paired with a (different!) pleather skirt I've had for ages and a splattering of rings! I'm still ill, anyone who saw me at the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards can vouch for my illness! Slowly getting a bit better though! Thanks for everyone being so kind!

I've also restocked all the rings in my shop, including the fives. I'm away this weekend so nothing will be sent until Tuesday though. Anything ordered prior to 4pm today has been sent already!

  5. Well jel you bitch. Know what you mean about the pleather skirts too, my mum keeps moaning at me for always wearing the pleated one! I totally agree with you about all types of cancers, I hate that the 'girly' cancers seem to get more coverage than the ones men get. Imagine if a boy's mum had breast cancer and he was told he couldn't run for the breast cancer race for life or whatever? Makes my blood boil. Ahhh. On a lighter note LUV THE JUMPER x

  6. The jumper is lovely, it's suprising how nice some JC pieces are (I think everyone automatically thinks velour tracksuits!) haha.. It looks great with the skirt! xx

  10. I missed Wear it Pink day - have no idea how as I've been seeing it all over Twitter for ages, I just didn't clock! :( It's so good that you are your friends do so much for cancer research, especially a topless photo shoot, there's no way I would be brave enough!
    Love the jumper, even though I'm not a huge pink fan!

    also love the nails, I never had tried H&M nail varnish before but then i bought a really lovely Grey and for ages it was my favourite. It's actually really good for the price! lasted me forever too.
    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend that must of been extremely hard! He'd be proud of you for doing as much as possible for cancer awareness so it's really really great of you to do so.

    I work at La Senza so breast cancer awareness is something I support every day! We've been allowed to wear pink tights/cardigans with our workwear on Fridays this month, hah.

  54. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, I completly agree about raising more awareness for Breast Cancer though. My nan died from it about 10 years ago, and it was such a horrid time, but the amazing people who helped her should all deserve a medal in my opinion! & I cannot believe you posed topless to raise money! I think that is such a great thing to do:) good on you! p.s, i love love love your nails xxx
