So. I’m throwing us a party.
I don’t know about you guys, but I am way, way over cancer getting all up in our business and taking away the people that we love.
For anyone who doesn’t know my history, my mum was diagnosed with cervical cancer when I was just 16. My sister Sophie was 11. This completely sucked. But amazing advances made by organisations like Cancer Research UK meant that 15 years after my dad lost his mum to cancer, I didn’t lose mine. She beat its ass and now spends her time drinking cocktails in her Spanish apartment, taking hilarious selfies with our dog and cruising the Norwegian fjords.
But I’m not through with cancer yet. Because while I was lucky enough to keep my mum, lots of people haven’t been. And this is not over until no mother ever has to sit her kids down and tell them she has cancer.
So I’m doing what Glasgow girls do best: picking a fight and throwing a party.
On the razz:
out enjoying oneself or celebrating, especially while drinking freely.
We will be taking over the fabulous basement bar at Farr’s School of Dance in Dalston.
We’ll be filling this sexy speakeasy with flashes of hot Race for Life pink, decadent treats and amazing people.
We’re gonna have cupcakes from the fantastic, gorgeous Polly from the Cake Diaries.
We’re gonna have goody bags for every guest, featuring amazing products from Timeless Truth Beauty Masks, Inlight Organic Skincare, Hifas da Terra and Race for Life.
We’ll have the chance to win a massive bumper goody bag worth over £100, with goodies from the Body Shop, Nails Inc, Essence and more.
We’ll have glorious heated massages from Lava Angels.
You’ll be able to chat to the folks from Sniffy Wiffy about their amazing products and how they can help you check yourself for the early signs of breast and testicular cancer.
And we’ll have more surprises to be announced closer to the time.
Fancy coming along? Of course you do! Just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Places for the event are limited, so get in touch!
Cancer, we’re coming to get you. And we’re gonna party all over you.
