The Red Cross was doing a blood drive near my office. I diligently read up on all the requirements and what to do the day before/morning of giving blood so I was prepared. I actually ate breakfast (yeah ok I don't normally eat breakkie, yes I know it's bad for me blah blah blah), I drank heaps of water and had a huuuuuge salad for lunch.
The actual process was so easy. All the nurses were ridiculously nice and talked me through every single step. I had to pump my fist a few times to get the blood flowing because I've got poor circulation. 10 minutes later I was done!
I had to rest for another 5 minutes, then the lovely nurse insisted I take another bottle of water and gave me a 'goodie bag' with all sorts of junk food. I'm not really a junk food person so I handed them out to my colleagues when I got back to the office.
This is my "blood donation" outfit today:
Asos orange linen 3/4 blazer, Country Road seamfree black tank, Asos grey pencil skirt, Gold drop necklace from Diva, Prada pumps
