Hello and welcome to the first non-travel Sparkles and Shoes post in a while! The best thing about a fashion and lifestyle blog is I can write about anything and everything that interests me and recently, that has been a truly jet set lifestyle but I am excited to write about something a bit different today. I can not make it through an October without a post about Breast Cancer Awareness and all of the great ways you can give back! This is actually my fifth year of putting together a list you can check out the 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 lists at those links.
1 | S’well Bottle in Bikini Pink $35 (20 percent of every purchase will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation)
2 | Pink Grace Bouquet $55 (15 percent of the purchase price from each sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation)
3 | Drybar pink mini Detox Dry Shampoo $13 ($1 from every sale of their to City of Hope, a leading treatment and research center for cancer and other life-threatening diseases)
4 | Amelia Rose Design Earrings, $69 (50 percent of all sales will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.)
5 | ghd Vintage Pink Styler Set $225 ($5 from the purchase price will be donated to Look Good Feel Better.)
6 | C.O. Bigelow Freesia Candle $42 (10 percent of all sales of their Freesia Candle to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation)
7 | Eos Lip Balm Duo, $6.59 ( 100 percent of the net profits are going toward breast cancer research at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center)
8 | Tory Burch York Buckle Tote $295 ( 20 percent of the purchase price will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation)
9 | Keep Collective Double Leather Band Set $39 (100 percent of net profits will go to Bright Pink)
And I would be remiss to write another Breast Cancer Awareness post without linking back to the excellent guest post my friend Kathryn wrote last fall about her experience with ovarian cancer. It is well worth a read!
And if online shopping is not your thing perhaps you would be interested in some live and in person deals. I am in Seattle right now but I will be back in time for the weekend and there is no better way to kick it off than with the Gilt City Warehouse Sale. You may recall I scored a lot of great deals last year and they are back at it again at the Altman Building in New York City.
The event will have shoes, clothes, furniture, decor, and more at up to 80% off Chloé, Valentino, Tibi, Derek Lam, Tom Ford. If this sounds interesting to you you can find tickets here, ranging from $5 to $20 for entrance to these great deals along with refreshments (including wine!) and great music! I hope to see you shopping!
