It's October.....time for pink to take over the world!!

As buildings around the world turn pink this October, I begin to scan the high street and supermarkets for pink ribbon items to buy in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. It is a cause I have paid attention to because of the mere fact that I am female. When 50,000 females in the UK, which equals to one lady every 10 minutes, and even more around the world, are still diagnosed with breast cancer every year, it is not a condition that should be overlooked or brushed aside. (To find out more about Breast Cancer Awareness: http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/news/media-centre/breast-cancer-awareness-month-press-pack) So lets have a look at what fabulous offerings that can be bought in support of Breast Cancer Awareness this year!
La Senza playsuit by Paloma Faith
Invicta Angel Messenger watch
Price: £35.44 (
All net proceeds go to Breast Cancer Care)
Crabtree & Evelyn Tote
Tea love........Le Creuset Strawberry Tea Collection

Clinique and Boots got together for this liptastic pink keyring set!
There are lots more items for sale all over the place and you will be able to find a longer list on the Breast Cancer Care website (http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/news/media-centre/breast-cancer-awareness-month-press-pack/whats-high-street), which includes prices, where to buy them in the UK and how much is donated to the charity for each item sold. So if you are doing your Christmas shopping early this year, or need to give a gift for a birthday girl, please spare a thought for Breast Cancer Awareness and consider giving a gift that can save lives.

Alternatively, donate £2 to wear something Pink on the 28th October 2011! (www.wearitpink.co.uk) Please give what you can and lets make October a fabulously pink month!

Until the next time,
May xx

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my darlings...as this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao myself...trust me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 1~ From Qi Pao to Cheongsam.....an evolution of a dress about women!

Welcome my lovely darlings to the new address www.WalkingInMay.com as the blogspot to custom domain transition is now officially completed! Worry not, if you are still using the walkinginmay.blogspot.co.uk address it should automatically divert to the blog and there is also a new e-mail address if you should like to drop me a line to say hello or ask any questions; may@walkinginmay.com! What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…

How-To: Build a 1920s inspired Great Gatsby look!

With my birthday coming up in a little more than two weeks, and having decided on a vintage themed party, it is time to put my vintage thinking headband on! Last year I had fun dressing up as a 1940s inspired Pin Up girl, and this year I have decided to go a little further back in time.....yes my darlings....we will be roaring in a 1920s glitzy Great Gatsby affair!

The 1920s has been a favourite decade of mine for quite some time.....admittedly the decadence of the glittering heavily beaded long gowns, the extravagantly flirty ostrich feathers and the shiny Art Deco gem-stoned pieces might have something to do with it! It was true that the roaring 20s was a rebirth period for many because of the survival of WW1, so living every new day as free, happy and extravagant as possible became the ideal dream. With more women embracing liberation by replacing restrictive corsets with loose flowing dresses that revealed more flesh than ever before, a period embracing individuality, creativity, …
