This month, don’t go shopping, go shop-pink (sorry, couldn’t resist!). Even if the rosy hue is simply not what you’d choose to wear to school or the office, there are still plenty of ways you can think pink this October when it comes to shopping for your health and wellness while helping to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and research for organizations such as Rethink Breast Cancer and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Lipstick Powder N Paint and several media peeps have teamed up with Rethink Breast Cancer to show our support for the fight against a truly horrible disease, Breast Cancer. (Nearly 1,000 Canadian young women under 40 will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. This information is so very scary, and it makes us teary-eyed to learn this. We feel blessed because we haven’t had breast cancer, and do not have any friends or family that have had breast cancer.)
Our challenge was to create a nail look using the limited-edition OPI Pink of Hearts 2012 Polish Duo ($20.95) and beat out our competition, Daniella Etienne of TheBrokenHeelDiaries.com who was also asked to paint her nails.
Here’s where it gets good, people…YOU vote for who you think ‘Styled It Best,’ and for every single vote, Penguin Books Canada has pledged to donate $1 to Rethink Breast Cancer. And you can vote AS. MANY. TIMES. AS. YOU. LIKE. Voting ends on October 15th.
So come on, lovelies, help us raise money for Rethink Breast Cancer! Click here to vote.
