Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month which means there are a multitude of ways to support the research of (hopefully one day) and cure for a disease that effects over 232,000 American's (many of which are mothers and daughters). One way of supporting is by becoming more aware. As they say, knowledge is power. So get tested (especially if you are over the age of 30-35) and learn about the risks and symptoms, especially if there is a history of breast cancer in your family.  Another way to support awareness is through donations, be it direct or via purchasing from many brands who have donated a portion or all proceeds go to foundations whose mission to to aid in the research of Breast Cancer. Below are some of my favorite finds this October supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month.


BUMBLE AND BUMBLE PRET A POWDER $31: This is a dry shampoo and root booster in one! Gives you instant volume.

ESSIE BREAST CANCER AWARENESS POLISH $8.50 : Perfect pink color in honor of this month!

BOBBI BROWN 'PRETTY PINK RIBBON' LIP GLOSS COLLECTION $54 : Bobbi Brown is one of my favorite makeup brands, and their lip glosses do not disappoint!

SEPHORA COLLECTION 'THE BEAUTY OF GIVING BACK' BLUSH PALETTE $15: I got this as a gift a couple of months ago and love it. Great blush, bronzer and and highlighting options included here. Great for traveling.

SEPHORA 'TOGETHER IN PINK' HAIR TIES $6: These hair ties are the best in that they don't break your hair, and move to hold any kind of thickness or fineness.
