I just wanted to shout about a fabulous Friday! Through my business Sweet cheeks beauty, I was able to paint nails red and support the British Heart Foundation in the #Wearitbeatit campaign at Gravesham Women in Business. With over 40 local business women attending hosted by Hatten Wyatt Solicitors & Bretts Business Recovery it was a great morning and £120 was raised for the BHF to help fight for every heart beat.
I used my collection of OPI polishes with over a hundred in my collection I had lots of reds for the ladies to choose from, supporting the charity by wearing red February the 6th and with a number of events going on throughout February 2015
Next week will be the second of this years Pamper & Shop events, last months was a huge success and I’m hoping they continue to grow from strength to strength. I get to work alongside over 20 amazing local traders and in doing so am able to pull us all together to make a little bit of a difference whilst spoiling women with treatments, shopping & an indulgent fun evening. At each event we hold a charity raffle, as well as a chance for me to shout out and rave about the businesses that are involved, I get to tell a crowd if people the difference a charities work can make and raise money to help in the process.
Next Thursdays event I’ve chosen to raise money for Dartford, Gravesham & Swanley Mind. As a charity they do amazing work but locally I know 5 people (plus myself) that they have provided help and support to in the last month!
I don’t hide my battle with depression, it’s been ongoing for 12 years, like many it hasn’t been one thing. It’s been the stress strain of everyday life, confidence and self worth battles, trying to find myself and ways I cope, it’s been really hard at times; when I have lost people or gone through trauma. There is a lot of shit that over the last 8 weeks of counselling sessions that I have been gaining power over and letting go. Im so proud of myself and how far I’ve come! I’m not there yet and I will still have days of what I call “Pity Parties” but the fact is, the help of my counsellor has made me able to manage those days, manage myself, take control over my mind and those nagging little voices of self doubt and shit stuff! Their resources are so over stretched they have so many people referring themselves and being referred to them plus they offer community services like drop ins and group sessions, housing, education, advise and care for people caring with mental health, I just want to do a little bit to help and show my admiration.
I’d love if you can be there, here are the event details Pamper & Shop October, if you can’t but want to donate to the raffle or buy tickets please get in touch, I feel really passionate about making a difference whilst providing people with a wonderful evening.
Just realised i didn’t share last months Pamper & Shop event I hosted, with you gorgeous lot! It was a fabulous evening held at The Clarendon Royal Hotel Gravesend, there was over 20 superb local traders, goody bags, buy one get one free on cocktails and my gorgeous Nan & Aunt running the door. And we raised £72 to help mend broken hearts for the British Heart Foundation through the evenings charity raffle and donations from the kind traders working on the evening.
It’s best explained in pictures, all of which were snapped by my official photographer Carla Guest Photography (I adore this woman and her work!)
The next event is NEXT THURSDAY 23rd OCTOBER at Clarendon Royal Hotel, Gravesend just looking over these pics makes me all excited, more details can be found right HERE.
We will be holding a charity raffle on the evening for Mind I’m just posting a blog on why helping them is so important to me personally xoxo
So this Saturday I hosted a fabulous Coffee Morning At Athena Fitness with just 31 day to Christmas it was a fabulous morning. Everyone enjoyed looking at beautiful stocking fillers & gift ideas from a handful of select local traders and enjoying delicious tea & oreo covered chocolates!
The stalls really did have some of the most amazing ideas for presents I was rushed off my feet and didn’t get a chance to take a lot of snaps but I have added a few at the bottom of this blog for you to look through with links to each of the fabulous traders, as always if you head over & say hi to them tell them I sent you it always nice to know where referrals come from.
