Aveda Hand Relief – Breast Cancer Research Foundation

Aveda Hand Relief is
a great BCA product to use and to give as a gift.  I’m always on the
hunt for a great hand cream.  This hand cream is light, but
moisturizing.  I tend to buy the smaller size normally, but the BCA
pink ribbon is large enough to last a long time. It’s in the kitchen if
you cook a lot. El_bca_2008_page_01_image_0002

Au Revoir Mademoiselles! I’m Headed to Paris

Ladies, I’m off to the City of Lights.  It will be a blast to have all my fellow beauty bloggers with me as we explore my favorite beauty city in the world.  If I don’t post as often, charge it to my head and not my heart.  Remember to support Breast Cancer Awareness during my absence.  Although I may be away the cause is close to my heart.  I’m giving you Greenlight to have a little fun thanks to John Legend.  This is my new theme song at the moment.

Au Revoir mes amies and A Bientot

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Tbtcseal
Ladies, we all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The disease is affecting so many lives.  We need a cure.  For the month of October you will see many bloggers, magazines, websites, and numerous avenues supporting this cause.  I know the economy is bad, but if you purchase one product – no matter the price point – you help someone else.  That’s what Pretty Philanthropy is all about.  I will be featuring all kinds of "pink beauty products."  I have joined with Total Beauty for a giveaway on Friday, October 17th and The Beauty Blog Network to raise funds.  My goal is to raise $200.00.  If we can raise more I’m so happy.  I’m asking everyone to donate $5.00.  You can donate at Paypal (email is allaboutthepretty@gmail.com) or go straight through the Chip-In Widget on the right sidebar. 

I plan to give all the funds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation by November 15, 2008 to make sure all donations are counted.  Last December, I attended the Cosmetic Executive Women’s Annual Cancer and Careers Luncheon and was deeply moved.  This organization supports women who are affected by cancer.  Life changing is the only way to describe the luncheon. 

Here is where you can help.  We have pages at My Space and Facebook.  I need you to become a friend and a fan.

I will have regular reviews so don’t think for one second I won’t continue to bring the beauty even if I have to hunt for an Internet cafe in Paris.  The regular font color for the blog is chocolate brown, whenever you see an entire post in pink – it’s to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We are blessed to be a blessing.
