 Afternoon ladies!

What do you think of today’s shoe? They’re actually more of a candy colour in person but i had to adjust the contrast a little because the sun was shining through the window and left a really bad glare and made them look too pale. I love them because they’re a) floral and b) SO 70’s with the chunky heel but still ladylike with the bow and peep toe..my favourite so far!

Last month Dawn Porter sent me, @gemmies_, @clareies & @Hunny_piesies a tweet on Twitter to say she was writing an article about Twitter friendships in Company Magazine and would we like to be in it. Needless to say, we all said YES straight away! How it all began was because on one of Dawn’s podcasties, her and Eileenies were quite drunkies and started putting ‘ies’ at the end of everyting. So, when they finished the podcast, they put both their Twitter names as @hotpatooties @eileenies. I’d been following Dawn for a while and so had the other three girls so we all changed our names to ‘ies’ on the end and so the Twitter ‘gang’ was created. We all then started talking more to Dawn and each other  (mainly about food, food and more food) and in all honesty, it feels like a gorgeous Twitter family over there – I love it! Also, we’ve had more people come and join in the fun too so the love just keeps on spreading! (@chatooties, @clarelouisies, @iam_shereesies & @kesstries)

Anyway, the magazine is out today (It’s only £2, go and buy it because it’s great and you also get a free mascara!) so i took a couple of photos of the article cause i love it but the quality isn’t amazing – sorryies!

Anyway, i’ve got holiday bits to sort out!

Speak soon,

Dawn Porter

For the past two nights my favorite celebrity & journalist Dawn Porter has been  back on our screens with a two part documentary called ‘My Breasts Could Kill Me’ which is a very emotional series about breast cancer. As her Mum died of cancer when she was only 34, Dawn embarks  on a very emotional journey of tests and scans to find out how vulnerable to cancer she is and whether she has the hereditary cancer gene. Along the way she meets some truly inspirational and amazing men & women who are either currently battling cancer or who have had it and fought their way through to the come out of it the other side.

I haven’t had any close experiences with loosing someone to cancer but the concept of cancer has occasionaly been on my mind. For me, my boobies have always made me feel sexy. I like the size, the shape and how womanly they make me feel but Dawn made such a good point in the show by saying she loves her’s too..but eventually they might be the things that kill her.

Dawnies has always been involved in interesting and captivating documentries and what i love about them is that she digs into subjects that get you thinking.  In many of them, the subjects have been about topics i probably wouldn’t have ever considered thinking about before, but when your watching them it makes you wonder why you hadn’t thought about them sooner and this current documentary is a classic example of that. Eventhough I knew cancer existed and have thought about it a little before, it’s never been something i knew much about. For example I never knew how it can start, that it could be hereditary, that it can be in healthy people as well as unhealthy people, that it doesn’t just strike smokers/drinkers and, probably most importantly of all, i didn’t ever consider that men too could get breast cancer too. 

I truly admire all the people who took part in the documentary. They were all so brave and inspirational. There was one girl in particular, Kristin, who i felt i could relate to on an age level because she was only 23 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She told doctors 8 months prior to her diagnosis that she had a painful lump in her breast but they claimed it was hormonal. By the time they finally listened to her it was a 6x9cm tumour in her breast and had spread to her spine too. When this gorgeous girl was interviewed by Dawn her attitude towards cancer was really positive which, in-turn, was so empowering. She is determined to give cancer the biggest & best fight she can and really kick it in the balls and i couldn’t hope more that she does.   

Dawnies really bares her soul and i admire her bravery and courage so much. She lets us into her very personal journey and emotional roller coaster and it made me adore her even more than i did before. She is an inspirational & amazing role model and a perfect example of “real” women. It’s a documentry that will definitely give your heart-strings a tug but it’s so worth watching. It gives you a better understanding of cancer but also a very personal insight to Dawns life and it makes you wish you were there to give her the biggest hug you can.

P.s: Kristin has an amazing campaign called  Coppafeel to teach people the importance of checking their breasts to determine early signs of breast cancer. It is an amazing project so make sure you head over to her site and check it out on the click able link above or the image below.
