If you haven't already guessed today is Red Nose Day, a charity that not only does such great work here in the UK but also in Africa, and this year is the 25th anniversary of the big red nose!!! As well as making me feeling a little old, I remember the very first one, I thought I would do my bit and style up my new Stella McCartney for Red Nose Day t-shirt, wear a silly red nose and share all the goodies I picked up off the high street.
I first have to apologise for the quality of my style piccies, normally I like to have someone take them, because basically I am rubbish with using the tripod – I think the majority had me looking away, blurred and a few even cut my head off the picture – but I really wanted to share today so I have tried my best to show off the t-shirt as I love it.
Each year the charity produces some amazing goodies and basically there is something for everyone and each piece of Red Nose Day merchandise raises money for the charity.
So why not pick up this year's red nose designs at Sainsbury's for £1 – there are three to collect: T-Spex, Triceytops and Dinomite – I am not sure which one mine is I just loved its cute grin. The supermarket is also selling everything from mugs, bubbles, wristbands, air fresheners, and the cutest Red Nose Day Dino Roar cuddle toy, which when squeezed makes the most hilarious sounds and I just adore it.
Then there are the fashion bits, how about a Stella McCartney designed t-shirt? I picked up the fun Marilyn one at my local TK Maxx for £14.99, not only is it cute, but at least £8 of the price goes to Comic Relief – I even matched my glasses so Marilyn and I could be BFFs!!!
Finishing off my goodies is from one of my favourite designers, Lulu Guinness who has teamed up with Sainbury's on three limited edition totes. I have the Kooky Kat tote thanks to my mum and I am still on the look out for the Dolls Face one but at £5 a pop these beauties literally flew off the shelves.
So you've bought the t-shirt, the nose, the roaring dino, the tote and the pin badge what's left? Well as a treat for being so good buy yourself some Maltesers as for ever special Red Nose Day pack the chocolate brand is donating money to the charity!!!
