1) BREAST CANCER AWARENESS PRODUCTS
I love products with a cause. And I particularly like to support the Breast Cancer Awareness cause. Many of you probably already know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so there are tons of ways that we can show our support. And what’s great is we can do so without having to donate tons of cash or attend swanky events (if you have the means, I want to see pictures of the event!). We can help just a little by purchasing some of the products that in turn will donate a portion of their proceeds to charity. Here are a few of my favorite products:
10% of proceed will benefit Hoag Memorial Hospital in Newport Beach, CA
10% of proceeds will benefit the Beast Cancer Foundation Center
20% of the proceeds is given to The Rose, a charity that supports women with breast cancer
2) PUMPKIN PATCHES
I love this time of year. And one thing that really gets me in the spirit is heading to a pumpkin patch. I love to wander around and find the perfect pumpkins for carving. I’m no master carver but there’s nothing more fun to me than the traditional lopsided pumpkin smile. Stay tuned on my social media accounts if you’d like to see the final product!
3) HALLOWEEN PARTIES
It seems like most Halloween parties are happening this weekend and it’s one of my favorite parties of the year. It might be tied with Christmas and New Year parties… I can’t decide. Seeing everyone’s costumes is always a blast and I usually have mine planned out for the follow year by November 1st. I’m really excited about my costume but it’s a secret for now! You’ll just have to wait! Oh, the suspense! What are you going to be?
4) PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING
You want to know how I know it’s fall? It’s not boots, not sweaters, not the changing colors of the leaves. It’s pumpkin spice everything emerging! I mean, seriously! You can get candles, creamer, coffee, beer, soap, etc in pumpkin spice flavors. And of course pumpkin pie starts popping up on menus all over. I personally love it. I tend to over do it and will be over it by December but I can’t help it! It’s like my cat nip!
5) FASHION 2.0: SEASON OF CHANGE BY YULI ZIV
Yuli Ziv’s next book in her Fashion 2.0 series will be a controversial hit discussed widely among those in the industry. It forecasts how the changing world of technology will disrupt the fashion industry. Without a doubt, technology will change all of us but this book sounds interesting and scary specific to fashion. My copy is on its way and I’m looking forward to doing a book review on it soon!
