Shop For A Cure and Rebecca Taylor giveaway

Today is October 1, the official start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and an influx of pink items and products in the stores to help raise awareness and work towards a cure. This is a cause close to my heart, because my mom is an example that early detection saves lives. We were so lucky hers was discovered quickly, and with one surgery and no chemo or radiation, she has been cancer free for over 2 years now.

So here is a roundup of some items that proceeds go to fighting for a cure:

Michael Kors designed shirt for Saks Fifth Avenue.

Every NFL team has commissioned breast cancer awareness hats and sweatshirts. Look for your favorite teams coaches wearing these hats during games this month.

KitchenAid mixers and other appliances in baby pink.

Proflowers bouquet of pink gerber daisies

Splendid tanks in pink camo

Carousel cakes "pink velvet" survivor cake

Lacoste pink and white striped boat tote

Ralph Lauren's Pink Pony collection sells mens, womens, and great candles on his website year round
So whether you buy a product, do a walk, or just remember to get yourself checked, this month we have to remember early detection saves lifes, and honor the strong women who have fought this battle before us

We are giving away one REBECCA TAYLOR pink breast cancer awareness bracelet to a reader. Just leave a comment with what you are planning on doing this month(or have done in the past) for this cause, and we'll pick a winner on Monday


  1. I was part of the Race for the Cure committee for our local affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Our Race was last week. Thank you so much for dedicating space on your blog to such a great cause.

  2. I bought the Ralph Lauren Pink Pony Tee years ago and it may just be time to update my shirt as I have grown a little bit. Thanks for providing all these options that we can donate to!

  3. I love the Michael Kors top and the Lacoste bag....I'm deffo going to pick those up.

  4. I am going to buy one of the Michael Kors tops that Heidi is wearing. I think that is just too cute and for such an amazing cause! I also know my sorority will be doing something for awareness and to raise money for "Breast Cancer Awareness" and I will definitely be participating in that! Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Everything's so cute!! I did Race for the Cure my senior year of high school. Such a great cause!

  6. I'm really excited for this month. My grandma passed away from breast cancer last year. She had an early case, like your mom, which came back 10 years later. Thanks for posting this!

  7. Thanks for reminding me about this important month! I think I ought to do a post as well... You featured great products for an even greater cause!

  8. OMG! I love that Lacoste tote! It might be worth what I'm sure is the ridiculous price to support such an important cause. My family too has been affected by breast cancer, along with many friends, who were unfortunately not as lucky as your mother.
