It’s October! Or should I say FrOcotber! This month I, along with many other mummy bloggers, will be wearing a dress every single day of the month to raise awareness and money for PNI ORG UK – A post natal illness support charity.
According to research 10 -15 mums in every 100 suffer from post natal depression after the birth of their child. PNI ORG UK offers support, advice and care to women in need at such a vulnerable time in their lives. Not having suffered with post natal depression myself, I do know of many that have and understand what a worthwhile cause this is.
So I, Mummylish am giving my pre Littlelish dresses an airing and embracing my feminine side for a whole month. No more staple mum jeans. I will be making an effort to wear a dress every day (wonder if I have enough to last me the month, might have to get creative!) and heck I might even wear some lipstick and pluck my eyebrows ;) Proof will be available for you non believers on Instagram!
Do you want to join in with FrOctober? All you need to do is…
Wear a frock for the month of October – or a dress/tunic/skirt/skort/cullotes. Preferably a dress though. The dresses do not have to be new!
Let everyone know about FrOcotber – Like the Facebook page. If you are on twitter, tweet a picture of what you wear each day, with the hashtag #frOctober. If you are an Instagrammer, post the picture on Instagram.
You can donate to PNI ORG UK here – Thanks for your support! xxx
This Thursday I am going on a bit of an outing and I’m really excited about it! I’m heading to Lakeside in Nottingham to participate along with a group of East Midland bloggers in the creation of one of the 12 windows in the new Luminarium EXXOPOLIS by Architects of Air. If you’ve never seen the Luminarium, it is a giant colourful, inflatable sculpture that you can walk inside. It is amazing! The new Luminarium will embark on a tour around the world starting its journey in Nottingham at the Wheee! Children’s theatre and dance festival at Lakeside Arts from 2-9th June. Wheee! culminates in a family weekend on the 9 and 10 June, with free craft, art, spontaneous performance and fun in the parkland around the arts centre, plus even more shows to choose from. Book shows now, the weekend attracted over 4,000 visitors last year.
We are also doing our bit to help dedicated blogger Mammasaurus raise money for the #blogitforbabies campaign for Save The Children. Blog it for Babies is raising money for selected equipment for a delivery room in a healthcare clinic in Bangladesh where 1 in 19 children do not live to see their fifth birthday because access to basic services such as healthcare are so limited. She will be joining us in Nottingham for the day as one of the stops on her UK fundraising tour. In return for our hard work making this amazing experience, which families all over the world will enjoy, we would love you to sponsor us £1.
