Charity of the Month: Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity

The charity of the month this December is Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity. I recently found out about the amazing work this charity is doing and I am so impressed with their dedication. Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life-threatening or terminal illness. The charity provides families support workers to help them to make the most of the time they have together, giving them practical and emotional support, whenever they need it, for as long as is needed. The support workers help the whole family adjust to their new lives and the support provided is varied and dependent on the family’s needs.

Charity of the Month: Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity

Some examples of the kind of support the Rainbow Trust support workers provide are:

  • listening to a family’s fears and anxieties
  • helping to explain illnesses, diagnoses, and treatments
  • keeping a seriously ill child company during hospital stays
  • driving families to medical appointments to help save time and money
  • organising fun activities to help sick children, their brothers and sisters
  • support through bereavement and grief.

This vital service is available at no cost to the families that need it. Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity relies almost entirely on the kind donations they receive and the generosity of the public to deliver the support. So donations are always needed. You can support the charity by donating here. As little as £5 can buy arts and crafts to keep the child entertained. £10 could provide a memory box for a bereaved family and £26 would pay for an hour of support to a family caring for a seriously ill child. Another way of getting involved with this charity is by volunteering. You can look out for opportunities for that here.

Simple Christmas Outfit Ideas To Try This Year

*Collaborative post.

Fashion doesn’t take holidays, and even around the festive season, we want to look our best and impress and family get-togethers. 

This year has been one different from any other and we have seldom had reason to get dressed up and have fun. But today we want to change that to show you that you can dress to impress this Christmas and have fun at home. 

Here are some ideas for fashionable outfits you can wear this winter to really bring that Christmas spirit to life. 

A retro getup 

There is nothing better than a bit of nostalgia – and Christmas time is a great opportunity to look back on the past and bring it into our wardrobes. You can look online for some 70s inspired velour jumpsuits to wear with a pair of hoop earrings and heels for your Christmas party. If you aren’t a jumpsuit kind of girl, a 50s style dress with a fit and flare style could be a wonderful way to bring some retro charm to Christmas. However, I always love 1970s Outfit Ideas.

Classic golden goddess 

There are not many times in the year when you get to wear metallic colours such as silver and gold without looking overdressed. Luckily for you, Christmas is one of those times where it fits perfectly. Wow your family and friends this Christmas with a stunning gold dress in a bodycon fit and consider bringing a body chain into the mix for extra glam. Getting dressed up for Christmas is fun so make sure that you make the most of things you couldn’t wear at any other time of the year.

Monochrome magic 

One of the classic ways to dress at Christmas time is to choose a monochrome outfit and add a bright red touch with shoes or lips. There are some amazing ways to pull off a monochrome look this Christmas and you can choose a colour block dress, a black skirt and white top, or even some skinny white jeans with a black plunge top. Have some fun playing around with the fit and style of your clothing and enjoy the simplicity and timelessness of it. 

A glitzy dress 

Christmas is a time to play around with glitz and glam – and a sequined dress could be the ideal option to bring some festive cheer to your celebrations. A fun sequin dress can be any colour or a combination of colours and will bring that little bit of Christmas magic to your life this year.

A festive jumper and skirt 

If you enjoy going a little more comfortable and practical close to Christmas it is a good idea for you to wear a festive jumper with a simple skater skirt. A festive jumper with all the fixings and garishness is in the true Christmas spirit and a cute little skirt to tick it in will bring a more childlike look to your Christmas Day. Plus, once you have eaten a huge roast dinner you can hide your bloat in the jumper and no one will know!

It cleanses the skin beautifully and leaves it clean, smooth, and soft. I love the light fragrance a lot. It smells amazing.

The ingredients in this face wash are Rose petals blended with papaya, cypress, orange blossom & witch hazel to produce a non-foaming & gentle face wash that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils.
