Over the last couple of months, the Bangarang girls & I have been hard at work brainstorming ideas for a very special collaboration with Zeal & Heart after being contacted by Rebecca, the owner and creator, to come up with our own slogan to be engraved on a batch of just 100 pendants. It needed to be good. Something that links all 11 of us Bangarang girls. It was a toss up between travel or food. We went for something travel related. This slogan also needed to be something that would resonate with fellow travel-hungry people. There was many a suggestion from each of us, which we managed to whittle down to just a couple before a final poll was completed by us all to determine the winner.
This is a slogan that we’ve all managed to incorporate into our lives, with a little encouragement from each of us in our Whatsapp group. Whether it be booking that big trip, quitting our miserable jobs in pursuit of something else, or simply deciding to go to that event after work. Sometimes we need that little push to Just Go and do that thing we’ve been thinking about doing. The more time you spend debating about whether to go, the less time you’ll have to actually get out there to do it!
The best bit about this collaboration is that the proceeds from the sales are being donated to Headway in memory of my dear Amy. If anyone was a Just Go person, it was Amy. She fell in love, quit her job, and went travelling the world with the love of her life. We may have lost her during her journey, but no one can deny she didn’t live her short life to the fullest. She definitely helped me to Just Go during those few, but amazing months we got to hang out. Seeing how much she was up for random adventures with me, whether it was coming along to a gig of a band she’d never heard of, coming to the wedding of my hometown best friend as my +1, or joining me on a camping weekend with my cousins, she inspired me to say yes more and to push myself out of my comfort zone.
I am so incredibly touched that these 10 fabulous girls, who never even got the chance to meet Amy, have agreed to donate the proceeds to Headway in her honour. So next time you feel too nervous to go to that event you’ve been invited to because you don’t really know anyone that is going, Just Go, you might just find your Bangarang.
Each pendant is just £25, or £35 if you’d like a chain, and each one has been numbered 1-100. As there are 11 of us Bangarangers, that means there are only 89 left to buy. If you do decide to Just Go and buy one, do let us know 🙂
