It's October!!

It's already October, what does this mean?  It means that Halloween is just around the corner, families will be gathering for Thanksgiving next month, and crazy steals and deals will be available on Black Friday & Cyber Monday, Christmas is roughly two and a half months away, but most importantly October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month!

This may not be a topic of choice for many people, but as a woman, I truly believe that it's important for all of us to spread the word and raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. We all have women in our lives that are important to us, whether it's our mother, our sister(s), our friends, etc., and even ourselves.   Simply by encouraging anyone over 40 to take the initiative to consult with the doctor about when they should start getting mammogram, or by encouraging adult women of all ages including ourselves to perform breast self-exams at least once a month, we can be making a difference.   It's good to be aware of our own body and the changes that may occur, if you are ever faced with finding a lump or any changes in your breasts, don't be afraid! Call your doctor right away and take the initiative find out what it is.  I know it's easier said than done, but it's through knowledge and courage that we can protect ourselves and those we love.

You can make a difference not only by spreading the word about breast cancer awareness and early detection, but also by contributing to breast cancer research through donations to breast cancer awareness organizations.   You can also donate by simply buying products that either give 100% proceeds or even 10% proceeds back to breast cancer awareness.   I've listed  some of the products that I've heard about that will support breast cancer awareness.  You can buy these product(s) as a way to show your support, or even as a guiltless shopping spree for a good cause. I will continue to update this list throughout the month of October if I come across some more products. Do come back and check them out!  Maybe you can even start on your holidays shopping early this year :)

Take care of yourself and all those around you.  Stay healthy! <3

Oh So Cute! Disney Tsum Tsum Lip Smacker Lip Balm Collection

How many lip balms can anyone really use? - probably not that many, but how can you resist these cute Disney Tsum Tsum lip balms?  The suggested retail price is about $4.95 each, which is not bad until you realized that you can't just buy one and not the others.  I ended up walking out of the store with 4 super adorable lip balms, and $20 less in my wallet...but it's all worth it (I think) These lip balm pots are formulated to moisturize and leave a translucent shine on your lips.  They are also considered collectible items with 4 special edition flavors.  I don't know how long they will be available for purchase,  but I did find mine at a local Walgreens recently.  I'm pretty sure you can check out other major drugstores around your city, or visit Lip Smacker online to buy them.  I hope they will come out with more characters in the future. <3 Mickey: Marshmallow Pop Minnie: Strawberry Lollipop Winnie the Pooh: Honey Pot Stitch: Blueberry Wave

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7R Raspberry Red) Review

I've been looking forward to getting my hair colored and it finally happened, thanks to a couple of lovely family members that helped me out!  Sorry it took me a while to review the Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color, but I just got it done yesterday and here's what I think about it.   I normally get my hair colored at the Salon, but this time I decided to do it myself (well, I didn't get it all done entirely by myself...but mainly because I wanted an even coating all around so I decided to ask for some assistance.) I think the Hello Bubble Foam Color is actually quite convenient and easy to handle even by yourself,  if you don't care about sectioning your hair into smaller bunches.  Treat it like you are shampooing your hair, and it will probably come out alright.  Before you start dying your hair, I would recommend applying a bit of vaseline or baby oil around your hairline and on your ears as well, so that your skin won't get stained if yo

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7P Vintage Rose Pink) Review

At the end of 2014, I wanted to change my hair color, but I didn't have anything specific in mind.  I went to the local drugstores in my area and looked at a lot of colors and read their ingredients--and I went home feeling uninspired by all of it.  So I thought, maybe I should just dye my hair the same raspberry red from Hello Bubble as I did before.   I went online to shop for it, and that led me to the new color called 7P Vintage Rose Pink. I knew instantly that was the color I wanted to try!  I had a great experience with this brand the first time when I used it ( Check Out My Previous Post For 7R Raspberry Red ), so I wasn't worried about the formula, but more about how and if the color would turn out on my hair.   Once again, Hello Bubble Foam Color did not disappoint me! I loved it!  Why I like the Formula :  I've mentioned in my previous post that I really like the foam formula.  It's non-drippy, and extra easy to apply by yourself (this time I re
