Hey guys, 

So I have some shit news to explain why I've been quiet on the blog for a while.. I have cancer. I have an invasive breast cancer that's already in my blood stream but hopefully it hasn't spread too far, although I won't know for sure until they remove and test my lymph nodes. I'm having a double mastectomy next week and a Diep Flap reconstruction, which is a terrifying 12 hour surgery that takes about 10-12 weeks to recover from, and then possible chemotherapy after that. 

I won't be blogging for a while, or maybe I will.. who knows I may feel up to it. I'll certainly have the time as I wont be filming for a while. I have been away filming a lot the last few months so I do have quite a few wonderful products to tell you all about, but if you haven't already seen me raving about them on my instagram you'll have to wait a little longer to hear about them.

I do want to say that if you have a family history of any type of cancer go to your GP and get on a genetic screening programme, in the UK it's free on the NHS. Because of a long history of breast cancer in my family I have had yearly MRI screening for many years, and it was my recent MRI that caught my tumour, I did not find a lump. Had I not know until I felt a lump it would most certainly be a much further stage cancer than it is. I probably owe my life to the NHS screening programme.

Hopefully you don't all abandon me in the quiet time and I promise I'll be back as soon as I can. In the meantime I've listed some of my favourite posts you may like to re-visit.

Love, Annie x
