Parting is such sweet sorrow. Give and Make Up.

As you may have seen from my Youtube page, I have a little contest going on. It's called "Time to say goodbye". Many people thought that title meant I was leaving YouTube, in hindsight perhaps a different title would have been less dramatic! The contest has now closed and I really enjoyed reading all 700+ comments and laughing along to the insanity of keeping make up and sniffled at some of the sentimental reasons too. Thank you to everyone, all winners have been notified and prizes dispatched.

This was only a small part of a major spring clean I have undertaken. Fingers crossed Mr OJ and I will be moving in a few months time as we purchase our first family home together. I couldn't bear the thought of carrying all my collection to the new home so I have had a major reorganise.
With this in mind, I have been sorting out my items for Give and Make Up, which aims to help women who have left abusive relationships start again. The cosmetic products which are either slightly used or brand new but in good condition are distributed to these women who literally have nothing, they may have left in the middle of the night in fear of their own and their children's lives.

It's a great cause and I am only too happy to donate all of my surplus cosmetics products.

Here they are all packed up and ready to be shipped (for free by generous freepost benefactors BeautyBay). I'm slightly embarrassed that I have held on to so much stuff...

If you would like to know more about this brilliant initiative to help women who have escaped abusive relationships, then the Give and Make up web page is full of all the info you will need.

  1. That is a really nice thing to do. Knowing that your make up is going to people who will really benefit from it is great.
