Pink Awareness

It make me so happy seeing everyone's amazing Breast Cancer Awareness posts this last week! If you haven't done a post on awareness yet, I hope you think about possibly doing one. I love shopping so if I can buy something that helps with the cause, I'm going to buy!

For the last several years, I have been buying from Ralph Lauren Pink Pony. They donate 10% of all proceeds to care and prevention. The best part of the Pink Pony line? The clothes and items are fabulous!! The tees are adorable, the tote bags (if you can find one) are amazing and the candles are perfect gifts. I try to by an item from this line each year. These are a couple of my Pink Pony faves:


And a tip, if you do buy a tee, buy a size larger than you normally would. This line tends to have a slim fit to it.

One other piece of awareness that I'd like to discuss (that I was actually pretty oblivious to until recently) is Skin Cancer on the Head. Do you realize that most women never even think about putting sun screen on their scalps? I never have! I think I always figured my hair would block the rays. Well guess what? It doesn't! And guess what part of the body gets the most sun... yup, the head! So boys & girls, please be careful out there. When you put sunscreen on your face everyday, think about your head too. Skin cancer on the scalp is rising in numbers and with skin cancer being the most common form of cancer and we've got to protect ourselves!!

I cannot tell you how many times I sunburned my scalp. But I've never thought about getting skin cancer there. Thank you for the advice.

Such good advice-must remember to spray head with sunscreen!

I'm thinking of shaving my head just to be safe. Who knows what is lurking under there?

I've loved the pink pony ever since Charlotte sported it on Sex and the City. So classic. Now I just need a lawn party to attend!

It's funny that you mention this because I've recently heard a lot about it too. So I've started putting sunscreen on my scalp where my hair is parted. Scary stuff. Thanks for the info!
