sienna X x Children In Need

As I learnt in the past 4 years of living in the UK, Children in Need is a pretty big thing - and that's coming up this Friday!

For those of you who don't know, it's a night when the BBC fundraise through a show for the Great Ormond St. Hospital. The hospital is a children's hospital, and the fundraising is to fund facilities for the kids or for the families so they can stay with their kids while they're hospitalised. During the show, there's loads of celebrity performances and whatnot that makes it a generally moving and heart-warming evening with some moments of intense laughter - most notably the BBC news presenters' dances, but they aren't doing it this year - BOO.

Now Sienna X is a brand I've never tried besides their cream bronzer, but their fake tanner is incredibly popular - most recently, they were responsible for the tans of the whole Skyfall cast! Anyway, they organised at the MOBOs for celebrities to sign some of their products so they can be auctioned on eBay and the funds can go towards Children in Need - fab idea or what?

Being a massive Stooshe fan, I jetted over to their ebay page and bid £5.50 for the tanning gel - only to be outbid within 5 minutes.. gutted. The fight continues! Some other celebrities include..

Aston & Oritse from JLS - the highest bid at the moment!
Lauren Pope
Emeli Sande
Misha B
Rebecca Ferguson
Jorgie Porter
The 5 Olympian Collection - includes 3 Gold medallists
.. and many more!

Another quick mention of an auction for Children in Need that's caught my eye has been the Designer Pudseys.. my favourites are below. Which are your faves? (Images all from external sources)

 Alexander McQueen's & Loewe's
Burberry's & Paul Smith's (Paul Smith is the boy's favourite, rather!)

GQ's & Giles Deacon's

Anyway, back to Sienna X. Why not see if some of your favourite celebs have taken part in this? Just pop on over to sienna X's ebay page and have a bid - if only to raise the stakes for other die hard fans to donate more to a great cause ;)

  1. I really like it when companies raise money for charity like this :) I'm pretty excited for Children in Need. I work in a school and am dressing up as a ladybird all day to help raise money haha. xo

    1. I do too - especially when 100% of the proceeds to go the charity. I saw Ralph Lauren doing one for breast cancer once and was only donating like 5% or something, I thought it was really bad! Aww that's so sweet haha I hope it goes well! :)
