As most of you already know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink is the color of the month, so why not show your support by rocking pink all month. Who doesn’t love a little pink?
Every item below is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness and donating some of their proceeds to Breast Cancer Research. I am loving the hot pink Coach purse.

Stila Positively Pink Palette For Breast Cancer Awareness
Women of all ages and especially in our 30s, need to start really paying attention to our breasts a little more and making sure that we are doing breast exams at least once a month. It is not uncommon for women our age to get breast cancer even though we are fairly young. I think that Giuliana Rancic was a real wake-up call for me since she found out she had breast cancer at age 36.
So wear your pink in support of awareness and really bring that awareness into your bathroom and start checking yourself! Below is a step-by-step chart on how to make sure you are checking correctly.
Remember: More than likely if you find something it will end up being nothing, or, if you find it early enough there is a 98% survival rate.
That Coach purse is awesome!!
I am going today for a mani/pedi … pink all the way :)
It’s so true that we need to start paying attention now.
Sadly, some health insurances won’t insure women to get mammograms until they are 40. This is a fight I have had with my insurance company because of family history. The least we can do is regular self examinations and hope more insurance companies start supporting women by allowing baseline mammograms at an earlier age.

Thanks for commenting! I love when you leave a comment! I also love that purse so much! Now, just to get the $300+……
It is sad that we can’t get a mammogram until 40. I have a friend who is my age who was just diagnosed. It is crazy! But for now, you are so right, it is important we check.
The self breast exam info is great! We as women should really do this. The lumps that I’ve encountered have been on my own from feeling and knowing my body. Thankfully, they have just been benign cysts, and my body is prone to them, but my doctor reminds me of the importance of both knowing this and even getting those checked out. Thanks for the encouragement! I really enjoy adore your blog. :)
