October is...

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (and apparently a lot of other things too).

I may be misquoting but I believe Oprah said every hour we lose one out of every eight women to breast cancer. Wow.

While I'm not here to lecture, I just wanted to say that if you don't know, please educate yourself, be aware, show your support for the cause and help if you can. In the spirit of this "Pink Ribbon" month, I'm also doing these two things:

♥ reading A Girl Becomes a Comma Like That
♥ and purchased My Pretty Pink Box

A Girl Becomes a Comma Like That is the national bestseller by Lisa Glatt and was nominated for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Best First Fiction. It is a novel that interweaves the stories of three female characters, of which I am most drawn to the story about Rachel Spark, "an irreverent, sexually eager, financially unstable thirty-year-old college instructor who moves back home when her mother is diagnosed with terminal breast cancer."

Now for My Pretty Pink Box...

My Pretty Pink Box is the perfect place to try sample-sized girly products! Enjoy samples, products, and special discounts from our awesome retailers and e-tailers! Each box contains handpicked beauty items from both up & coming and well known brands. Plus, it is a great way to spoil yourself rotten - Pamper yourself, you deserve it!
Not only will you receive great samples, but we are determined to provide at least 1 to 2 full size products each month. Nothing is better than full size products at sample pricing!
My Pretty Pink Box varies in pricing from month to month, and will be announced a few days before each release. Why does it vary? Because monthly contents vary. Each month, different retailers will contribute to the box causing the flux in pricing. It's not fair to charge you the same price per month when the contents of one box can be greater than the contents of another. We want you to be happy, and will charge accordingly.
A portion of the profits from each box sold will be donated to Susan G Komen for the Cure.
