During the month of October, we want you to fill your closets with goodies while supporting Breast Cancer Research. This shop will be available all month and will then be placed on the main page of Kitten Lounge. We will also let you know which items are limited editions, sold only during this month or are ongoing!
I have been a fan of Sugar Chic Couture for a number of years as they have something, everything and anything for your four legged love! Although I came very close to having one myself, I love staying in touch with what they have and no shock to me - they are the perfect place to visit to outfit your furry baby and to support the fight against Breast Cancer! Whether it's a cute tee or simply a dog charm, every little bit helps!
Lipgloss is everything! It adds a pep to your step, the amount of color you choose to rock and fab nutrients as well! Elizabeth Grant has an extensive skincare and makeup line that I talk about a lot on Kitten Lounge but I am loving this perfect hue that also has a little LED light and gold mirror which ensures that you're never in the dark when it comes to your looks. In addition, they are also supporting the fight against Breast Cancer with this purchase! During the month of Oct Light Up Your Lips so that by purchasing at this time, 20% of the proceeds will go to the cause.when you place Sweet Pink in your cart.
All of the items included in the above spread benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, if you want to see more items, make sure to check out their site to see others spreading the support fashionably. This grouping focuses on fun accessories which you can rock while also supporting the cause! I love that I was invited to the Accessories Council Pink Picks event #ACPinkPicks.
We'll kick off with one of my fave designers, Alex Woo (@Alex_Woo) who supports the cause through her participation in annual runs as well as financially supporting the cause. Alex's mom passed away due to Breast Cancer and hearing her story made everyone feel her passion. I adore her Pink Ribbon Chord bracelet which is fully adjustable and wears well throughout the year and can be stacked with a number of other fun pieces.
Thale Blanc (@ThaleBlanc) is a relatively new line that debuted during our event that evening. When I tell you that her pouches which are meant to house your phone, cash and small items while you're out and about is the softest thing ever - is an understatement. I also loved that while we were there and because the designer was listening to various stories and passions - she popped back up after her piece had been presented and decided to donate $50 of the proceeds from each purchase to this cause - definitely check her website out for more details but this is such a fab travel must!
From traveling we talk about making your music go with you as well. I fell in love with Chic Buds (@ChicBuds) which is a keychain speaker that connects to your laptops, phones and tablets! I love the idea that you get phenomenal sound and you don't have to have a lot of room to take it with you. All the chords you need come with this as well.
I've always been a lingerie girl, I think you need to find pieces that speak to you whether it's for a night in or you have your own viewing taking place with your significant other! In my travels (since I'm always heading to a factory to create a new line, doing a TV segment or scouting), I love the idea of being able to slip into something fabulous that allows me to have some down time and if there is a phenomenal robe that goes with it - true luxury has been obtained! Brulee is a favorite of mine as they know how to keep it simple, luxe and decadent which is all you need. Of course, they're being included as they have chosen to donate 25% of all sales proceeds from the Boudoir Cami & Short in Blush (retail value $124.00 & $86.00) sold online at Brulee.net to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Donation will go into effect October 1st, 2011 and end October 31st, 2011. This is a great way to add some dreamy elegance to another segment of your wardrobe while also supporting a network of those work to ensure that Breast Cancer is a thing of the past.
Our spread above focuses on beauty items that are participating this year in supporting the research and funding of breast cancer; moreover, you can find out more by visiting BCRF's Facebook Page or @BCRFWorldPink. You can't talk about BCRF, supporting brands and amazing products without starting off with Estee Lauder (@EsteeLauder) - especially since Evelyn Lauder is the Founder and Chairman of BCRF. Although there were a number of goodies from this brand, I was super excited about La Mer's Lip Balm which I enjoyed its mintiness last night! It's available on their site starting in Oct and at specialty stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's and Saks. Our Canadian Kittens can enjoy getting it exclusively at Holt Renfrew. Available at $45, $10 will be donated from each purchase.
Elizabeth Hurley Pink Ribbon Collection is $24 with 20% of the purchase price going to the cause. This was available starting on Aug 1st and will continue through to the end of the year at Estee Lauder counters, their website or until supplies last! I love that you receive Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Lavish Pink as well as this fab accessory bag which is super cute.
Finally, Bobbi Brown offers a limited edition set in her Bellini High Shimmier Lip Gloss and Pink Lip Color. This is the perfect shade of pink and will be available from Oct 1st through the end of the year at theur counters, website or until supplies last. Available for $44, they are donating $10 to the cause. There are a number of beauty products that are supporting this cause so make sure that you check out BCRF.
When I appeared on HSN in late August, I rocked a number of fab jewelry pieces while I was co-hosting for my spokeswork with Sebago. One of the pieces was Chan Luu who has a number of bracelets that I am a huge fan of. Although I wore won of their wrap bracelets, I also rocked one of their pink Swarovski pieces which has been a staple in my collection!
Chan of Chan Luu actually designed the above collection in partnership with Breast Cancer.org for their Global Breast Cancer Preventative Initiative as apart of Think Pink. Live Green. In turn, 50% of the proceeds will go to this cause!
I love this fab shade from Shiseido in Shimmering Rouge Lipstick in Iron Maiden (RS308)! But even more then this hue that is perfect for the fall season, I love that Shiseido is donating $5 to Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of Oct which will go to Cancer and Careers (part of CEW) as they have done over the past 5 years!
Scoop NYC is an amazing store that always has a number of looks from fab designers. They too are joining the support by providing 30% of the proceeds of a number of amazing product to the BCRF! Stock up on goodies for a notable cause and help women who will love your help!
Not only is it important to shop to support a cause, but when you're able to learn about your body and find the best bra and your size to boot - then you understand a bit of why I am such a fan of Natori! Simply download their new Bra App and a $1 from this will go to support breast cancer research! This is such a great tie into Breast Cancer Awareness and prevention with long lasting effects for everyone!
