Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. Had an insane day. How was your weekend? I hope amazing! We are loaded with beauty reviews this week. Loaded!! Including some gorgeous new offerings from Lancome. And in six days I'll finally be able to reveal some great news. Man I can't wait. I've been dying to tell you. But today, we're going to get a little serious. I want to talk to you today about breast cancer. I think every one of us knows someone that has been affected by this horrible disease. It is the most common Cancer in women. Last year, I shared with you that I lost someone very special to me, to this disease. In one encounter, this woman basically changed my life. If you didn’t read that post click here. We must stop this disease from taking away so many amazing people (like my friend). If you're able, please donate to the various breast cancer charities, like the Susan B Komen Fund . Also, to fight breast cancer, many beauty brands are offering pink products. These are products that you can purchase and proceeds from the sale will go towards Breast Cancer Research. Here are some:
My must-have beauty product.
