Well, I had planned to do a lil' beauty post to kick start May, but recently I've found I simply couldn't avoid doing something - Running the Race For Life!
I've been so busy, I haven't had time to think - but with uni finished that's all I have done and it's about time I done something to help kick Cancer's arse!
Cancer is something that's affected me directly in life, I've beaten it and lost so many people I love to it... But I don't want to lose any more... No one wants to lose anyone, but more than ever I want to give cancer a kick up the ass!
So on June 11th 2013, I will be running the Race For Life, in the Trentham Estate in Stoke-on-Trent... Wanna know why?
When I was a child I lost my best friend to cancer - my Granddad, Da' - He was amazing, but in January 1997, he died.... Then in 2003, my Irish gem of a Granda' died of cancer... I don't have any Grandad's left, and they can't and haven't been able to see me grow into an adult.... But this year Cancer is trying to take away a man, I call Granddad - ok, he isn't my Granddad, he's my Fiancé's, but we're close and I've never called him anything but and cancer has decided to creep up on him... and I won't have it!
Then there's my Mam, (Not mum because I'm northern!) she's got a small version of skin Cancer - but she's so strong! She's always been my best friend, but more importantly - She's my mother and I get married next year.... A girl needs her Mother at her Wedding, and I won't have something like a deasise, that can be cured stop this - Every little girl should have her mum at her wedding...
So I'm running, not just for me, and my relatives, but for all the little girls who deserve their mum's at their wedding and for all Grandparents who wish they could see their kids and grandchildren grow in to adults - like mine couldn't...
Yes, I'm running the Race For Life 5K in Stoke - I did fancy 10k but there was non in a close area... hopefully next year... So I'm exercising more, getting my gear ready and I'm ready to say "Cancer, watch out, cos' I'm coming for you!" - I'm running and my target is so little at £100, but every penny makes a dent! So please, go to my PAGE and please donate, a pound is all I'm asking, it's all to help kick cancers arse - because it well and truly deserves it!
My tag line is "Pull a pose to show support" because us bloggers are obsessed with posing for #FOTD ect, so every time I pull a pose for my blog I'm putting 20p in a tin to go towards the cause - this would be amazing if you all could do the same!
Sponsor me HERE or join in yourself HERE - I'm getting my running shoes on - Cancer we're coming for you!
Thank you for reading and I'll be back tomorrow with beauty/fashion goodness - let's do this though...
P.S. Pinch, Punch, First of the Month!
