In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I appeared on WFAA’s DAYBREAK to discuss items that make the perfect care and gift basket for someone battling breast cancer that can be given to someone you know or simply delivered to a stranger fighting the battle.
Jewelry by Chamilla: This Swarovski-owned company has a great collection of earrings and necklaces that are perfect for reminding a woman that there are other ways to accessorize your beautiful head without hair. They also have a Limited Edition “Love Wins” bracelet in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month that offers a percentage of proceeds back to the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.”
Pur Energize Wild Durian Fruit Peel: While you should check with your doctor before applying any skin care products during treatment, this gentle leave-in peel from clean beauty brand PUR attitude gives back $25 from each bottle to Texas-based National Breast Cancer Foundation during the month of October.
Dawn of a New Day: 21 Days to Renew Your Faith, Mind and Spirit: This is an inspirational journal that I wrote which is dedicated to the memory of her mother Dawn who passed of breast cancer. It provides daily words of inspiration and motivation with sections for the reader to write out all the many things the have to be grateful for despite of whatever trial they may be enduring. Each day ends with a “Dawn’s Diamond” which is a way to practice self-love by embracing the simple joys of life. So from dancing alone in front of a mirror and touring art galleries to exploring the world through travel publications and taking a “Me-cation”…there is something for everyone to do to LIVE each day to its fullest! A percentage of the proceeds made in October are being donated to the Pink Peppermint Project.
Curvy Couture: Curvy Couture creates comfortable, supportive and expertly sized bras that make you feel your best. The intimates are fashion-forward, glamorous, and naturally lifted – tailor made for your curves, up to an H cup. Finally a great bra for curvy women! The straps are comfortable and adjustable, and there are selections that come with adjustable pads.
