Boux Avenue support Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

I'd like to say a 'Happy October' to y'all! For me,  October is one of the best months of the year for loads of reasons. The nights are drawing in, Christmas is creeping upon us and the smell of bonfire is a familiar and reassuring smell this time of year. October means Halloween - the one day of the year where it is acceptable to:

  • wear minimal clothing
  • look really ugly and no one can say anything
  • dress up as a ghost/ghoul
  • have the cheek to go to people's houses begging for sweets (in a polite manner of course)
  • have a scary movie marathon
  • drink potions!
October is also the month where summer officially ends in Britain - so don't forget to turn your clocks back 1 hour on the 27th ladies. However, what is really great about October is that there are loads of events on which are for a good cause - we've got 'Sober October' & 'Stoptober' which is where we are supposedly meant to refrain from smoking like a chimney and drinking like a fish. Luckily for me, I don't smoke and I'm not really a massive fan of alcohol so this wont be an issue for me, unless somebody offers me a Disaronno and coke obviously - who could be possibly resist that.

However the thing that I really wanted to get at is that this month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - something that is close to a lot of people's hearts. Breast Cancer Care is a charity that provides emotional and practical support for those affected by the tragic illness and campaigns for support and care. Breast Cancer care aims to promote early detection in Breast Cancer - to ensure people are able to catch this nasty disease as soon as possible and prevent it from getting any worse.

Last year...
  • 1.5 Million people sought information and support from the Breast Cancer Care website
  • Breast Cancer care answered more than 12,000 calls to their help line 
  • & reached over 3,375 people with their breast cancer awareness talks
Boux Avenue  are giving amazing support to this cause and are donating £1 from every PINK set of underwear bought this month - view the pink collection here! Due to this special campaign month Boux Avenue are also doing a deal on their super cute tradish' PJs - on offer for buy one get one free - you can buy them here. So with Boux Avenue supporting this amazing campaign - why not buy something pink this month and get some Christmas presents in the process and help out this wonderful charity. 

Check out the Breast Cancer website - lets conquer this illness now and detect any symptoms as early as possible!
