A charity that really makes a difference to people's lives

For those who know me well, know that I don't often commit to these kind of posts and very selective with the charities I would consider donating to, but have taken a long time to consider how my work, psychological interests and desire to protect children from cruelty can be utilised to benefit others.
I’m a firm believer that we start as we mean to go on and giving children a good start in life often helps create safe, secure and positive adulthood so I would like to dedicate some of the time I have to one charity I believe can make a big difference: The Kids Co I've offered to volunteer for this amazing charity that makes a big difference to young people and hoping the time I can contribute will make a difference to someones future.
If any of you feel the way I do about children and their future take a look at their website/twitter/facebook and perhaps you can help too? It's not just about financial donations, it's how we can make a difference to someones life ‪#‎platepledge‬ ‪#‎makeadifference‬ @kidscompanyuk
I've also just pledged a meal for a vulnerable child at
If you don't want to contribute directly, give me a shout - there may be ways we can offer something together as a business or individual, I'm not the kind of person that will tediously rant on about this, but if you have an interest, let me know.

Do you know Dr Rose & Co? #AutumnChappedLips rescue remedy!

If you don't - you should! 

When I worked in London with various buyers and retailers up and down the country building brands  such as #FrenchConnection & #SoShei lingerie, I came across a lovely lady to the name of Dr Caroline Rose, at the time - her store in Leeds was beyond anything you would see on the High Street - a totally inspirational, cosy and inviting traditional style apothecary. 
I also had the great pleasure of sampling her products - one product of which I'm delighted she introduced me too and still use to this day. 

The Rose Petal Salve is literally as described -  a magical little balm. I personally use it for dry, chapped lips - which so many other high street products really don't help. I do suffer from dry lips in the winter and detest the feeling so this has always been one of my favourites, I urge you to try it! 

For £5, it's not your high street average but it's amazing properties work wonders and will last you such a long time because you don't need to use it as much. You can buy online and various retailers across the country, but if you have the opportunity to visit their store in Haworth, West Yorkshire - that's a must too. And tell Dr Rose I said hello!
