This "Think Pink Haul" is my way of showing support to The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Years ago, a lump was removed from my mother's breasts for fear that it might turn cancerous. Recently, my auntie fought for her life when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Our family is very lucky that both of them are well now and have survived their ordeals, so you can see why this month and this campaign are very dear to my heart. I will provide more information about this program by the end of the post.
On the lighter side of things, here are some of my well-loved pink items which you might wanna check out and purchase for this "Pink Month." :)
1. Floral bandage dress from Supre - around 30AUD I got this in Sydney years ago but never got to wear it.

3. BK nailpolish 18" (3 for P100), Chic nail polish in Neon Pink P31.75, Bobbie Premium Nail Care in Tropical Punch - P32.50, any local drugstore

|I've been wearing these on my toes since summer. Aren't the colors just yummy?|

|H&M Mascara in black. I looove the design. Looks so retro. Thank you, Gail and Tita :)|
|Victoria's Secret lingerie is just soooo comfy. One of a dozen pink panties I own which I haven't used. I love this because it's lace and polka dots.|

Wireless Bras: Pain-free and supportive, going wire free is the best option for active lifestyles. Good quality, cotton, wireless bras provide support and protection without the discomfort or that constrictive feeling. Padded and push-up options are the only choices for exercise and sport. And contrary to popular discourse, they come in a range of sexy colors and patterns. So cut those wires and get yourself a wireless bra. Your breasts will thank you for them as it will keep them healthier and prevent unnecessary strain to your back and your boobs.
The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.
Since its inception more than 25 years ago, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. NBCAM recognizes that, although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Today, we remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health.
There are many ways to show your support during the month of October. Many companies like Stella & Dot have created special pieces that support research and awareness. When you buy The Rose Gold Hope Bracelet orThe Luna Wrap Bracelet all net proceeds will be donated to the Noreen Fraser Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to raising women’s cancer research funds and promoting early detection awareness.
Anyway, I hope you can start taking active steps towards taking care of your breasts by having a regular mammogram and wearing wireless bras.
