Win a Radley Handbag #rockupinred

I am HUGELY excited to be getting involved in this year's Rock Up In Red in conjunction with The British Heart Foundation.  

Rock Up in Red - what is it?

On February 1st, The British Heart Foundation is encouraging anyone and everyone to get together with colleagues, friends and/or family to wear red, have fun and help raise awareness and money to fight heart and circulatory disease.  I would imagine that someone you know has been affected by heart disease - the UK's BIGGEST killer.  They are asking that collectively we all do something involving red on February 1st and raise as much money as we can.  Even a £1 could make the difference, come on .. £1 - surely together, we can make a difference?  DONATE NOW - do not delay, do it now!

If you want to get involved with those around you on Feb 1st then take a look at the website, it's fun, it's easy to look around and you can download a fundraising pack and get loads of help with planning your own event.


This gorgeous bag could be yours - VERY jealous because it can't be mine!  If you would like to win this Radley Handbag all I need you to do is upload via Instagram/Flickr  (or similar) using the hashtag #rockupinred and #avenue57. 

If uploading directly is a problem then don't worry - email me and I will do it on your behalf.  Just email me your photo - and I will upload for you.  Here are some ideas for your photo - red nails, red jeans, red jumper, red vest, red hair, red earrings, red necklace, red cheeks - red red red red - that's all!  I might just add that I am not advising you do all of these together in the one photo!

Among many other people raising awareness are 2 of my all time favourite bloggers School Gate Style and Does my bum look 40 in this? - you can enter your photo on all 3 websites - just use the hashtag #rockupinred and #schoolgatestyle and/or #dmbl40 and not forgetting #avenue57 - if you don't tag the photo I can't find you, if I can't find you I can't pick you out as the winner (maybe!)
To kick it all off here I am in red.   What do you have in red that you can share with me in a photograph?

So .. get sending/uploading/downloading fundraising pack - NOW!
