It's October.....time for pink to take over the world!!

As buildings around the world turn pink this October, I begin to scan the high street and supermarkets for pink ribbon items to buy in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. It is a cause I have paid attention to because of the mere fact that I am female. When 50,000 females in the UK, which equals to one lady every 10 minutes, and even more around the world, are still diagnosed with breast cancer every year, it is not a condition that should be overlooked or brushed aside. (To find out more about Breast Cancer Awareness: http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/news/media-centre/breast-cancer-awareness-month-press-pack) So lets have a look at what fabulous offerings that can be bought in support of Breast Cancer Awareness this year!
La Senza playsuit by Paloma Faith
Invicta Angel Messenger watch
Price: £35.44 (
All net proceeds go to Breast Cancer Care)
Crabtree & Evelyn Tote
Tea love........Le Creuset Strawberry Tea Collection
Pink with ASDA's Tickled Pink white T-shirt
Clinique and Boots got together for this liptastic pink keyring set!
There are lots more items for sale all over the place and you will be able to find a longer list on the Breast Cancer Care website (http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/news/media-centre/breast-cancer-awareness-month-press-pack/whats-high-street), which includes prices, where to buy them in the UK and how much is donated to the charity for each item sold. So if you are doing your Christmas shopping early this year, or need to give a gift for a birthday girl, please spare a thought for Breast Cancer Awareness and consider giving a gift that can save lives.

Alternatively, donate £2 to wear something Pink on the 28th October 2011! (www.wearitpink.co.uk) Please give what you can and lets make October a fabulously pink month!

Until the next time,
May xx
