Pretty With A Purpose | Breast Cancer Awareness Month
I know what you’re thinking...we're halfway through the month and I decide to jump on the bandwagon to write about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. See the truth is that with how crazy fast our lives are the month passed me by and I haven't been able to wrap up this post! So lets do this thing, shall we? Lets slow things down, take a break from our crazy lives, and help make a change.
Appropriately enough, this month my major focus is health...healthy mind, healthy heart, healthy body. Since I wish that for myself I want to do my part to help other's in their quest for health. It turns out that we don’t have to stray too far from our daily routine to do our part. The beauty industry allows us, during the month of October, to put our shopaholic skills to good use.
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Estee Lauder Companies have launched the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in support of Breast Cancer research. Fifteen brands have joined together to donate profits from limited editions products to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Checkout my favorite products helping this cause!
