Sponsored silence for Action For Pulmonary Fibrosis

I haven't wrote content in a long time and I have really missed it.
I really enjoy sharing content about my beauty finds and where I have visited but I am finding it refreshing being able to write about more serious things.

As we all know life is not just rainbows and sunshine.
My family have been shook by the passing of my Grandpa due to a horrible disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis two months ago.
He was our rock and the man that I have always looked up to, He was always there when I needed him since I was born.
Not having him around is extremely difficult and it all doesn't seem real at the moment.

My Mom and I wanted to do something positive and help others dealing with losing loved ones due to this illness. To raise awareness and support the charity Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis. A charity that was founded in 2013 by patients, their family members and IPF specialists. Working together to raise funding for research and improving quality of life.  To find out more about this charity and Pulmonary Fibrosis click here.

This charity is extremely close to our hearts as I know that personally I had no idea the extent of this illness. I had never really heard of it before and I didn't want to believe in what it would to do my dear Grandpa.

On the 6th of November we both took part in a sponsored silence. For anybody who knows either of us you. You will understand this was extremely difficult for us as we love to talk!
We stayed silent for 24 hours and my husband enjoyed every moment of it.
It was torture for me especially when I had been asked questions through out the day!
We both did it and we are extremely proud.
I can not believe how many generous people have donated, we have raised way more than expected.

I am happy we achieved this and I really wanted to share it with you.
