£51,718 for beauty backed
That’s right, that’s how much we raised for @beautybacked @hbcharityuk with the Mystery bags of joy. 567 bags, 1 mystery box with 3056 entries(!) 1 beautiful ring, 1 set of nails, 3 amazing friends, 1 incredible husband, 33 generous brands, 15 makeup artists making 104 bags of joy, 4 bottles of Prosecco, 1 bottle of Gin, 1 curry, 2 pizza’s and a house full of laughter and the occasional tear. We’ve done this together. The love you have shown for the beauty industry and to me is incredibly overwhelming. This money will help so many, SO many.
I am so honoured to be a trustee of the Beauty Backed Trust.
Beauty Backed lifts the industry up to be seen the way it should be seen. Our industry is important to our economy - vital in fact. It is built on hard graft, talent and passion. And so I am grateful to have the opportunity to give back as a Beauty Backed trustee and to be part of this force for good. It is not only needed, it is vital.

The first online beauty shop for cancer patients
When me and my beautiful friend and cancer thriver, Helen Addis aka @thetittygritty discussed shopping for beauty products during cancer treatment on an Instagram live during lockdown, it had an overwhelming response from fellow cancer patients who felt the same. From this, the C-List was created. It’s the ultimate guide to beauty products you can use when you’re going through treatment for cancer and beyond. Recommended by trusted brands and cancer patients The C-List is your one-stop beauty shop covering everything from the essentials like deodorant to the feel good fake tan we’ve got it ‘C’overed.
And we don't just stop at the list though guys. No siree. I will be showing how to actually use these products and how to get the most out of your skin. And Helen is equally passionate about supporting you through your cancer treatment and all the craziness it brings to your life. There will also be other cancer thriver journeys and expert blogs giving you support through cancer treatment from menopause advice to dental tips and everything in between.

Stephen Lawrence Trust, 100 Black Men of London & NHS Charities
During lockdown, and alongside my husband Theo, we hosted a series of quizzes and held online fundraisers for the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, 100 Black Men of London and NHS charities. Over £8k in total was split between these truly important charities.
An incredible 2504 of you bought my Epic roast potato recipe helping us reach a grand total of £4012! The funds were split across 4 different food bank charities; it costs £5 to feed someone on Christmas Day and so we were able to feed 804 people in need.
I am very lucky as part of my job to receive many products to test (you have probably seen my Lisa Takes Stuff Out of boxes videos!). Unsurprisingly I don’t need many of these. Each month I create product bundles with Dawn to be handed out to various different places that need it most at that time. These have included local refuges, hospitals and schools.
