ELLE beauty does Sober October

For Macmillan Cancer Support charity


By Amy Lawrenson

I'm not one to turn down a glass of Prosecco (or ten). In fact, I am often the most tipsy (read: drunk) at the party. So, with that in mind, it seemed like Sober October had my name written all over it.

Beauty Director Sophie (who has a penchant for red wine) told me a couple of weeks ago that she was going to be embarking on Sober October, she was 'sober-tobering' and I wanted in.



We're doing it, first and foremost, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, but also to see if we can actually give up booze for a whole 31 days. I had a wedding this weekend and managed successfully (and shockingly) to forgo anything alcoholic (hello, Slimline Tonic). Sophie has a LOT of birthday celebrations this month (two best friends, sister and mum) to get through.

We're raising money at Just Giving and will be updating you on our progress right here throughout the month...
