Think Pink

I may have a girly profession {playing with makeup on a daily basis} and I may enjoy feminine clothing and details, but I do not like the color pink. Not even close. I did a pedicure this past summer with hot pink polish and I felt like a sellout. It just wasn’t me. But when it comes to breast cancer awareness, a cause near and dear to my heart, I will wear it proudly.

My mother, aunt, and late grandmother are all survivors of the disease. Unfortunately, far too many of us know someone whose life has been affected by cancer. It is with great hope, research, education, and advocacy that we can find a cure in our lifetime. This being the 1st of October, the beginning of breast cancer awareness month, I thought I’d share with you some of the great “think pink” breast cancer awareness products available for purchase with proceeds benefiting breast cancer research organizations like the Susan G. Komen Foundation and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Now I may not be a doctor or chemist, but what I can do is be an advocate, increase awareness and shop {pink} till I drop. Let’s turn the world pink, shall we ladies?

White + Warren Pink Collection – You love leopard, pink, and cashmere right? How about all three?

Skechers Shape-Ups – Blast your glutes while you spread awareness for a worthy cause, talk about efficiency!

Bobbi Brown Pink Ribbon Shimmer Brick – Get a radiant, pink healthy glow. Free shipping with this purchase all October long.

Essie Yes We Can, Pink! – A neutral pretty pink that will have everyone inquiring about your color. Be sure and them tell about breast cancer awareness month!

AVEDA Pink Ribbon Hand Relief - A rich decadent cream that truly heals, as seen here.

Ralph Lauren Pink Pony- Need I say more? The iconic pink pony says it all. Check out their auction with 100% of the proceeds benefiting breast cancer research.

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist – Donna’s most popular fragrance, the powdery soft scent is truly lovely.

Save the Ta-Tas- Clever shirts that accomplish a very important thing, they get attention. Shirts for the whole family!

Bloomingdales has set up their Pink Shop for the month of October with lots of other great products for you and your home all benefiting breast cancer awareness foundations, you can check it out here. Keep an eye out for more fantastic items all month long. If you’d like more information about breast cancer, read this. Remember, we all have to be an advocate for our bodies and our health. Early detection is so important, it could save your life. Think pink!

  1. that is a great post, thank you for that. so many women touched by breast cancer, it’s unbelievable. october is also domestic violence awareness month, and i will do a lot of community outreach for my job on that topic. i bring it up together so that people can see how many women are affected by that, too. 1 out of 4 women are victims of DV. I think that’s pretty unbelievable too.

    so glad you stopped by, and thank you so much for your comment about my fall decor. i know, right, i really do wish i had that pamphlet!!

  2. This is such an inspiring post. The pink pictures are lovely & it is so important to donate to Breast Cancer research and shop for pink products that support this cause.
