Great Ormond Street Hospital provides love and care to thousands of children, and their families, every single year. Once upon a time, my family was one of them. My cousin was born with multiple problems that saw him being labelled a ‘vegetable’ that would essentially see him have minimal quality of life; he was admitted to Great Ormond Street and spent eighteen years being treated and undergoing operations. Now he’s a healthy twenty-something with a career, a girlfriend, a flat and a life – all thanks to the amazing work GOSH does every day. For this reason the hospital has always been a cause that is close to my family’s heart, and a charity that we support even years later. In 2014 Clinique are celebrating the ten year anniversary of their partnership with Great Ormond Street and their ‘Kiss It Better’ appeal, that raises essential funds to help the treatment of children living with cancer. In celebration, they’ve teamed up with epic designer Lulu Guinness (known for her lip shaped bags and purses,) to bring something very special to their fans.
This February you can grab your very own Lulu Guinness coin purse, which even comes with a free Clinique Chubby Stick, for only £55.00 – that’s £5.00 cheaper than buying the coin purse normally! Absolutely every penny from the sale of this will go to Great Ormond Street to help children fighting cancer; the purse is so cute and definitely one for Lulu Guinness fans and lipstick lovers alike. What better present to open this Valentines Day than a kiss from Lulu Guinness and the knowledge that you’re helping kids too? It’s fab quality and makes such a statement, perfect for popping in your perspex clutch that’s so hot for spring. There was such a high demand for this when it launched that it’s currently sold out online, but Clinique have advised me there should be more stock up on their website any day now… So make sure you keep checking back and grab yours ASAP! It’s only right that you should help the kids (wink, wink.)
The coin purse and Chubby Stick combo is available exclusively via Clinique.co.uk priced £55.00. (Make sure you keep checking back for more stock as it becomes available.)
