Think Pink: Best Buys for Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2013

breast-cancer-awareness-month-2013

I come from a family of women who have fought bravely against breast cancer. That’s why it is a cause that is very dear to my heart.

In fact, making a mega endowment to combat the horrible disease is on my things-to-do-when-I-achieve-extraordinary-success list.

Until then, what’s a girl to do?

Pitch in by buying pretty, pink everyday items created to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October. Here are seven on my to-buy list.
