As women, we should all be aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. There are many ways in which you can support this very worthy cause including fundraising events, such as coffee mornings and pink ribbon walks. Some retailers have joined in their support by releasing special limited addition products that include a donation within the cost of the item. Below I have listed some of my favourites and hope that you will join me in supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month by making a little purchase of something special!
Estee Lauder support this campaign every year and have come up with some lovely products to tempt us again this year. With this Lip Collection purchase you not only get a beautiful lipstick in Rubelite and gloss shade Hot Pink but it also comes in a lovely two tone clutch bag. £5 of the cost will be donated to the awareness campaign.
Evelyn Lauder Dream Solid Perfume Compact, Pleasures scent, £60
Although this is more expensive its worth noting that the full £60 is donated, that definitely makes it worth while!!! Estee Lauder have a couple of other products in this campaign so they are well worth a look at, check out the link above, (pictures from Estee Lauder's website).

Pandora Breast Awareness Charms are a great way to support the campaign whilst increasing you're Pandora Charm collection. The three above cost £35, £30 and £45 respectively with 15% of the cost going to the awareness fund.
One of my favourite Breast Cancer Awareness products is this limited edition 'Pinkie Pink' nail polish by Nails Inc, designed by both Poppy Delevingne and Mattew Williamson. At £11 its a little more affordable and £1 is donated from each one sold. I've just ordered mine and will let you know what its like when it arrives.
These are just a few of the products available this year so please take time to have a look and let me know of any other recommendations you might have. I'd love to hear of any other fund raising you may be taking part in too.
Remember, not only do you get to have fun but you can also make a difference!!!
