  1. Hi everyone!  It's a lovely sunny morning here in Sussex and I am sitting here with Fleetwood Mac on and a cup of coffee :) 

    I just want to take a few minutes to pass on this lovely article that I came across on Twitter.  I have talked to a lot of breast cancer survivors through the years and it's certainly true that everyone moves forward with their life after a mastectomy or lumpectomy in a different way.  

    In this article on a breast cancer site, a lady called Molly Ortwein has chosen to move on by tatooing over her scars.  You can watch her lovely inspirational story on the page here.

     

    She is in the US and the tattoo studio that helped her has now started a lovely new project across the US. One day every year, the 10th of October, they encourage mastectomy ladies to come in and get a tattoo of their choice, across their scars or somewhere else, in a supportive environment.  It's a wonderful idea and a wonderful story.  The P.ink project as it's called is in it's second year this year and going from strength to strength.  Their lovely video is also simply wonderful and well worth a watch.

    It seems such a wonderful idea and would be an excellent event to have here in the UK don't you think?

  2. Hi everyone!

    From today I shall be trialing the Collect+ UK delivery service on my website.  I've used it a few times now for customers and it adds a valuable option for delivery, so I've decided to add it as standard to see how we all get on.

    It's a simple idea...I drop your parcel off at my local store and they deliver it in 2 working days to your local store (sorry only available in the UK).  You then pop in to collect it at a time suitable to you, easy!

    I've added it to the site mainly for customers with larger parcels such as the larger breast enhancers/chicken fillets and all the breast forms/false breasts as they will benefit the most, but it is available to all at the checkout.  When getting a larger parcel delivered it can be a nightmare if you are out at the time as you will get the dreaded "We Tried To Deliver" red card; that is of course if you get to see it as so many are scooped up with all the junk mail also left these days.  I know going to collect parcels can be very difficult for many of you, especially with my sorting offices being out-of-town or requiring parking charges.  With this option you won't need to deal with Royal Mail, but instead just pop along to your local store which may be walkable and usually has easy free parking to collect it.  What's more they are usually open from very early to very late. 

    It seems a very useful service and addition to my postage options, so it's on now for you all to use.  You can check your local stores before ordering, or I've provided the link in the order email if you'd like to choose one and then let me know.  If doing this, just do this as soon as you can as I can be too efficient with my dispatching some days.  If I don't hear from you I shall select your nearest store and let you know that it's on the way there
