A huge thank you must go out to some of my favourite brands – A Beautiful World, Olympus, Village England and Anna Lou of London – for donating to a hamper I’ve been putting together for the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer 2014 launch party raffle this week…
These are all brands you’ll have seen featured regularly on the blog – the Stylus 1, I use as my travel camera or when I don’t want to lug my DSLR around; my Village England Datchet is pretty much my bag of choice for most occasions; I’m a committed devotee of A Beautiful World’s carefully chosen natural and organic beauty brands and, as you probably know, I pretty much wear my Anna Lou of London tag necklace and engraved rings daily.
I’m finding it pretty hard to let go of the gorgeous Village England Burton Agnes in red (the perfect camera bag for the Stylus 1!) and not delving into the beauty products including the MuLondon white chocolate cream and Marble & Milkweed cardamom lip balm, but just a few more days until these goodies are safely out of my hands and with a lucky raffle winner later this week!
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer 2014 launches today, so it’s time to get out your wallet and make a fashion purchase from this year’s collection. With a range of designs from high street retailers M&S, River Island, Warehouse, Topshop, Laura Ashley, Debenhams and Superga, prices range from £2 to £85 and 30% is donated to the charity. I’ve put together a little edit of my favourites from the three themed collections – Pastel Sundae, On Target and Breezy Daze.
The poster campaign is fronted by Emeli Sandé, Laura Bailey and Jessica Ennis-Hill (who all look incredible!) and was shot by celebrity, fashion and beauty photographer Simon Emmett. Since its launch in 1996 (founded by Ralph Lauren in 1994), Fashion Targets has raised more than £13million for breast cancer – 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year so SHOP HERE, #WearYourSupport and tweet @FashionTargets and instagram @fashiontargetsbreastcancer. I’ll be going for the fab unicorn lights tee by Velvet Johnstone.
Here are my favourite picks from this year’s Fashion Targets collection – see all the pieces here.
(Sorry, not all of these are linking through to the products, will update as soon as they become available! I can’t wait to get my hands on the unicorn tee!)
