Right, the lovely people at L’Occitane had such a hard time choosing between the amazing entries that they offered a 2nd prize as well so that two people could have some L’Occitane goodies. I’ve never heard of this happening before but it was a hard call because there were some very inspiring stories. In fact, they were all inspiring and uplifting so thank you to all who entered. 

The L’Occitane Hamper went to Rachel who has had a horrible time of it with depression and an eating disorder and was helped through it all by her angelic mum, who is not very well herself. Rachel wanted the hamper to say thank you to her mum. 


The second prize, a box of L’Occitane goodies went to Beth, and again it was her mum who came to the rescue when she lost all her research the day before her dissertation was due. Her mum sat up with her for 24 hours retyping the research, offering drinks and snacks, then drove her to uni in time to hand it in. The best thing about this story is that Beth got a 1st!  

Well done Beth and Rachel.
