Ever since I started being contacted by companies to work with them on certain projects, I made a pact with myself – because I’m cool like that, obviously – to never accept any offers that didn’t fit in with my blog/that I wouldn’t chose to purchase or be involved with on my own accord.
Ever since I started receiving these offers, I have never felt so chuffed and eager to get involved with a project than when I was asked to take part in the BBC Children In Need #Bearfaced campaign. If you’re not in the UK or have never heard of Children in Need, it is a charity that raises money for, and funds over 2600 projects for disabled children and young people in the UK. It is an absolutely incredible charity and I am delighted to be involved with their #Bearfaced challenge – a challenge which sees you go make up free except for a pudsey paw print (which you can purchase in Boots for £1, proceeds go to the charity) for a selfie that you then upload to the BBC Children in need website. You can also get friends and family to sponsor you to do it, again with the proceeds going towards the charity.
So here I am, giving you a word of warning… you are about to see my face make up free, it’s not pretty – in fact it’s pretty bloody terrifying, but hey, Halloween season and all that? – but it is for charity and if I can help the cause even in the tiniest way, then it’s all worth it!
Yep, told you it was horrendous.
Along with being a part of the campaign, I was also lucky enough to be sent a range of products from No7. No7 is exclusive to Boots, who are actually sponsors of Children in need. I will 100% – jesus christ, I’m regressing to my TOWIE days – be doing a review on these as so far, I have found them to be incredible!
