Bonds Breast Cancer Month

On September 26 hip daddy and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. We looked back at all we have achieved, admired our four beautiful children and dreamed about our future, a tree change, a big garden, some chickens and a goat.

On September 27 I walked out of the doctor’s office with a referral for a breast ultrasound after a suspicious lump was found. I rang my husband and cried. I cried a lot those next days. I worried about my children and my husband, about the future that all of a sudden looked so unsure and I worried about having to face a diagnosis without any family support.

McGrath FoundationLuckily for me last week I received the reassuring phone call that everything was clear, I was so relieved and thankful that God heard my prayers and that I could live to see my children grow up. At the same time I realised that many other women are not this lucky and their futures will be forever changed by this horrible disease that affects 1 in 8 Australian women and takes so many lives every day.

You may think that there is not much you can do to help but together we CAN make a difference in the lives of breast cancer patients. In the past 5 years the McGrath Foundation has supported 25,000 Australian families who have been affected by breast cancer. With a McGrath Breast Care Nurse in every state and territory throughout Australia, families experiencing breast cancer can self refer to their nearest McGrath Breast Care Nurse and be supported by a McGrath Breast Care Nurse completely free of charge.

This October, in celebration of breast cancer awareness month, BONDS have partnered with the McGrath Foundation to raise much needed funds for the McGrath Foundation so that every breast cancer patient who needs it can have access to a Breast Care Nurse. I would like to encourage you to be generous and make your point today.

Ticking off the packing list

Counting down

The countdown is on!

Every morning the kids cross out another square on our holiday countdown calendar and with only 54 squares to go I am getting a little nervous. As you know I have been preparing the kids’ backpacks with lots of fun stuff to keep them busy on the plane and I have also slowly started packing the suitcases with a big stash of beautifully wrapped gifts for our family, plenty of summer clothes and of course swimmers because we are really hoping for a decent European summer.

Just 5 more suitcases to pack

Just 5 more suitcases to pack

Some people would say I’m crazy packing this early but I like being organised and it gives me a feeling of being in control, knowing that there is still plenty of time to go over the contents, pack any missing items and buy new bits and bobs if needed. I am glad I made a start already as I quickly realised that all the kids (and dad too) could do with some new undies, socks and pyjamas for the holiday.

Bonds 4-pack SocksIt turns out the timing was perfect as Bonds is currently running a Mid Season Sale with great discounts on babies and kids items, now that’s a nice saving when you’re buying for a big family like ours! I think $5.98 for 4 pairs of children’s socks (RRP $12.98, now 50% off) is a pretty awesome price, at the moment most sizes are still available and you can choose from a boys (blue, green, grey) or girls set (pink, purple, grey).

Bonds trackieI also picked up a pair of these sweet $10 trackies (RRP $19.95) for my little ladies, I even scooped up some similar ones in my size! Because we are flying overnight (and I keep my fingers crossed the kids will sleep at least a few hours!) I want to make sure they are comfortable and warm. Planes can get quite chilly and these track pants look really cosy and cute at the same time, plus they’re great for quick toilet breaks.

Bonds DressNow I know I wasn’t really supposed to buy any more summer clothes but how could I walk away from this gorgeous chevron dress? At a tiny $10 (RRP $19.95) it was a bargain I couldn’t resist and the girls will love wearing it to the beach, out shopping or during our trip to Disneyland Paris. If you’re like me and you hate paying full price you can always find fabulous deals and discounts on kids products at Cuponation.

I better keep ticking off that packing list, not long to go, not long at all!

Breasts, boobs, bust, if there was one right time to talk about them now is it (even if it makes you feel uncomfortable). As you may know the month of October is all about breast cancer awareness with many businesses and individuals joining the ‘pink team’ and raising much needed funds for breast cancer research. The aim is to have zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030 and to get there we need your help. Don’t worry, helping out is easier than you think:

Bonds Shaper TopsThere are many different ways to help raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), like organising a Pink Ribbon Breakfast, hosting an event with your friends, school or club or you can join the team at Bonds. Australia’s favourite underwear label Bonds are experts at making comfy undies but they know all about breasts too and they have been proud supporters of the NBCF for years.

When you shop online at www.bonds.com.au you can simply add your donation for the NBCF during the checkout process and the awesome people at Bonds will match your donation dollar for dollar!

Bonds Sporty TopsAs you probably now shopping for the right bra is quite the challenge as all women are different in shape, size, style and taste. After lots and lots of research Bonds has come up with a brand new range of bras that has got pretty much every woman covered. The exciting Bonds Boobs range consists of seven different bras in lots of stylish colours and with a size range from 8A to 16G you will have no trouble finding a bra that fits. Prices start at $29.95 up to $39.95.

Bonds Bumps BraAs a breastfeeding mama I was pleased to discover that Bonds even thought of plain old Mama Boobs. If you are looking for a comfortable, wireless maternity/nursing bra look no further than the Bonds Bumps Bra ($39.95). This soft cup bra is designed to give you a beautiful shape and looks fabulous under clothing. This style is available in classic black and white and the practical drop cup design offers easy nursing access.

Bonds Push ItGet the smooth look with Bonds Slinky Tops, create the wow factor with Bonds Push It or keep your bigger bust in place with the Bonds Shaper Top, which Bonds bra are you? One of my lovely friends swears by the comfy, snug fit of the new Bonds Sporty Top so I may have to get myself one of those soon. Need a good excuse to give your underwear drawer a little makeover?
