I just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who donated to TBBCAR. Organising it was rather stressful - not helped by the JustGiving website going down for maintenance with less than half an hour to go until midnight - but we got there in the end! I was a bit gutted though as I really hoped that we'd make over £1000 and I can't help but wonder if we could have got that crucial last £150 in that final 30 minutes. But it's all going towards a good cause and I'm hugely grateful that we made ANYTHING at all. And thanks to all the people who didn't get sick of my constant promotion on Friday - I was expecting Twitter unfollows by the bucketful!
My biggest thank you though has to go to everyone who donated products. Some of the brands got in touch of their own accord, others responded to my pleas and several blogging readers went out and got products to donate, or offered to make things or extend their services. So a huge, huge thank you for all the donations - you REALLY didn't have to and apart from helping out a good cause, you didn't have anything to gain from offering vouchers or products. So I'm incredibly appreciative - especially as LOTS of people completely ignored my begging! Breast Cancer Campaign is really close to my heart. My aunt has had it twice and I have far too many close friends who have lost people to it.
Anyway. I guess you guys want to know the winners, right? Aaaalright then.
Congratulations everyone! I'll be emailing you all over the next few days to sort out getting your prizes to you. And that's it! Thanks so much again.
In other news, I also wanted to say Happy Halloween! It's one of my favourite times of year, and we had a bit of a dress up day at work today. I've gotta say, I felt rather at home in stripy tights and lashings of eyeliner - I think I'll always be a quasi goth at heart!
I got the cute little clip-on hat in Accessorize, and I've had the tights for about seven years - I was really outraged at spending £8 for a pair of tights but I think I've worn them every Halloween since! And - unbelievably - I've had the earrings since I was 13. I can't believe they've lasted all this time!
Happy Halloween everyone (and thanks again for TBBCAR!).
