Breast Cancer Awareness

As many of you will know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and here at the The Amazing Blog we have been busy finding our favourite products that help support the fight against breast cancer during this important month. Everyone has been touched in some way by this horrible disease, so why not treat a friend or even yourself to one of these six items. From Essie’s pink nail polish line, to delicious bra cupcakes, we wanted to share these items we love with you. First off, nail brand Essie has launched four new pink nail polish colours this month with each colour representing a different aspect of battling breast cancer. Whether you prefer a baby pink like ‘good morning hope’ or want to be a tad more adventurous with a darker shade of pink, ‘I am strong,’ the entire collection helps unite women together with pink power. Essie’s motto signifies everything that they stand for and why they take this line for breast cancer so seriously. “We can beat this, because we are in it together.” All four shades can be found in spas and salons and sell for £9.95 each. A portion of the proceeds will go to the UK based breast cancer charity, Future Dreams…So why not throw on a coat of this fun polish, while also supporting a good cause!

This fun and vibrant scarf was created in conjunction with Lily and Lionel and My-Wardrobe to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer during the month of October. The scarf is Lily and Lionel’s classic oversized silk O’Hara print in limited edition coral. With winter right around the corner, what better way to accessorize your outfit and bundle up with a pop of pink around your neck? We loved this scarf’s soft texture and coral design. The scarf retails at £95 with 20% going to the charity. You can find the scarf for purchase on their website here or at My-Wardrobe.

Timothy Dunn decided to join the fight against breast cancer this season, by launching a limited edition London Blue Rose pink candle. Touching close to home, many of the Dunn’s family and friends have been affected by this awful disease. The candle’s scent is beautifully feminine and can appeal to all. It is a floral bouquet of roses, peonies, forget-me-nots, gentian, heartsease, hollyhocks, and jasmine. Not only is the candle pink, but so is the delicate glass holder it comes in. This candle is the perfect gift idea for any women in your life, or even the perfect gift to yourself to enhance the feminine scent throughout your home. All profits from each candle will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness. The candle sells for £42 each and is available here.Tateossian recently revealed a new colour of its signature silver Pop Scoubidou leather bracelet in support of Breast Cancer Care. The bracelet is an exquisite combination of pink and magenta Italian leather set off with a sterling silver clasp. This stylish bracelet will be sure to add a touch of arm candy for any occasion. We thought this trendy, timeless bracelet would look great on any wrist while complimenting the idea of strength and stability during the intense battle one endures with breast cancer. The bracelet is available online here and in Tateossian stores for £110 with 20% of all proceeds going to Breast Cancer Care.
