Shop and Support Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer. I cringe when I hear those two words. You see, Breast Cancer took my mother from me back in 2010; it was her second battle with this horrible disease and sadly this time she lost. I’ve seen my mother be the strongest and bravest she ever was, and in the end, the weakest she’s ever been. She was, and always will be, my role model and my hero.

Whenever October rolls around, being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I’m always attracted by the various pink products that companies put out to help support various Breast Cancer foundations. Today I’ll be sharing a few of those items with you.

Today I’m showing you the shade Dusty Rose which is the neutral shade of the duo.

This Art Stick glides smoothly on the lips and feels really creamy. It’s fully opaque in one swipe; my swatch above is only one pass. It does transfer though so careful who you kiss. 😉 But with minimal drinking and eating you can go several hours before having to touch up.

I’m loving the colour and find it perfect for the fall!

EXCEL White Bubblemint gum
Wrigley, manufacturer of EXCEL Mixed Berry mints and EXCEL White Bubblemint gum, has been a proud supporter of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation since 2006.

I always keep a tub of gum in my car and I usually go for the EXCEL Polar Ice, but when I see the White Bubblemint with the pink ribbon my hand is drawn to it like a magnet. And how cute are those gum pieces with a pink ribbon on them?!?

These are awesome for carrying your favourite perfume with you. Plus they’re airplane safe so they’re perfect to bring with you during your travels.

One of the products I’ve always wanted to get is the pink toilet paper, but since my husband is not a fan I’ve refrained from buying it. One day I will though…! 😉

If it’s pink and supports Breast Cancer I WANT IT!

In all seriousness though, I really want to see a cure for this horrible disease. I’ve previously written in more details about how Breast Cancer has affected my family, and about how I’m considered high risk because of my family history. If you’re interested in reading that it’s in my post Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure 2013.

What cause(s) do you support?

  • The Bobbi Brown Art Stick looks VERY pretty on you!

    I just read your other post from 2013 about your mother and I don’t think I really knew how closely connected you were to breast cancer and I am sorry to hear that it has affected so many members of your family. It is scary to think how at least every person now has been affected by it somehow. One of my friends was only 25 when she was first diagnosed while we were in university. She found a lump during EXAMS and of course, you’re so stressed out about studying you don’t think it could possibly be cancer. It came back when she was 30 and then again when she was 32. Unfortunately, it was already in her spleen and brain. When I attended her funeral, I couldn’t believe how young she was when it all started. Ever since then, I try to be good about self examinations because you just never know anymore.

    • Thank you Jayne! <3
      Wow your friend died really young, I'm sorry to hear that. Breast cancer seems to affect so many people it's ridiculous.
