Close to Me

One of the charities that is close to my heart is Cancer Research. As many of you know, we lost our mum to cancer in December 2005 to cancer, so I try to support this charity (as well as Macmillan Nurses, because they really looked after my mum) as much as I can. I ran the Race for Life last year, but couldn’t do it this year because I had no idea whether I would be in Chester or in Bristol. (As it turned out, I was in Chester when the Bristol one was on, and in Bristol when the Chester one was on.) I will definitely be doing it next year, and will be hitting you all up for donations!

Another thing I love are handbags. Yeah, I know, its shocking isn’t it? At one point, I had over 100 bags that I used. I’ve managed to cut this down quite a bit (I have about 5 day bags that I use now, and about 10 night/clutch bags. Very restrained.) I went to Harvey Nichols on Saturday and it took a lot of effort not to clutch and stroke every bag there. (I restrained myself mostly, but when I came to a black velvet Christian Louboutin clutch bag, with sparkly stiletto clasp, I couldn’t resist!)

So a post that caught my eye last night from Kingdom of Style was this post about Handbag.com and Cancer Research getting together to launch a Handbag Amnesty, where people (not just girls!) are encouraged to donate their handbags for the chance to win a Dolce and Gabbana handbag.

Its a great excuse for a clearout of your closet, and its for an awesome cause. Get giving!
