October | Breast Cancer Awareness Month |

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Therefore I have decided to let you all know what's happening this month to raise awareness and funds for the most common cancer in the UK; Breast Cancer.
1 in 8 women will face it. Every year 50,000 women are diagnosed with it and 500,000 people are living with it. However, the advances in treatment and care are not enough to prevent breast cancer taking those we love. For example, 1,000 women will lose their lives to breast cancer this month. They're grandma's, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, cousins and friends. Someone you may know.

    Breakthrough Breast Cancer is striving to stop breast cancer by
preventing it, discovering it earlier and treating it with more effective treatment. Therefore, this month, with the help of leading UK retailers, Breakthrough Breast Cancer is asking shoppers to contribute to their cutting-edge research by purchasing one of various Breakthrough Breast Cancer products
Debehams Floozie Glitter Purse - RRP £22 - 25% Donation to "Think Pink" Debehams charity foundation
 Leading retailers include Warehouse, River Island, Damsel in a Dress and Stella & Dot alongside beauty brands such as Avon and GHD. The products vary in price and therefore are suitable for all budgets but best of all, each item carries a minimum 10% donation. A selection of the products can be found in Breakthrough Breast Cancer's LookBook!
GHD Limited Edn Coral Bird of Paradise Styler - RRP £129 - £10 donation (7.75%)
M&S In The Pink Bouquet - RRP £35 - 10% donation to Breakthrough Breast Cancer
As you can see, I am loving anything pink and glittery! All of the products throughout the lookbook appeal to someone, whether it's you, your mum, best friend or sister - plus, who doesn't love buying something great at the same time as donating to charity?!

Now, hands up who has been keeping up with the Great British Bake Off?! Me Me Me! So who doesn't like a bit of baking? Breakthrough are holding a Breakthrough Bake Off to encourage everyone hold their own bake off to share tastey treats, awareness and funds to help fight the battle against cancer. No matter how big or small, what matters most is the taking part and raising whatever you can.
The Breakthrough Bake Off is on Friday 17th October, but if you're busy with work or home life, you can hold it throughout the whole month of October! To help inspire and motivate the natural bakers as well as those not as gifted in the kitchen, Breakthrough have sourced recipes from Lorraine Pascale, Jane Asher, Strictly Come Dancing's Kristina Rihanoff and Made in Chelsea's Riley Uggla.
