This season’s hottest and fastest growing trend is animal print. It’s so versatile and looks great on just about every woman. There are lot of different ways to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. For me, I’d totally rock this Moschino skinny leopard print jeans. And I’d wear it exactly as styled.

Breast cancer awareness is one initiative that is close to my heart. After working for a health organization for nearly three years and doing my part to help improve the health of Americans suffering from chronic diseases and illnesses, I’m definitely more acute to the importance of finding cures for these diseases.
Awareness should be year-round, in my opinion, but I’m glad the month of October is dedicated to raising awareness for breast cancer. And in today’s post, I want to share with you why you should do your monthly breast exam, share some facts about breast cancer and provide you with a list of great organization that work tirelessly to find a cure for this horrible disease while education the general public year-round.
Monthly Breast Exam
Why should you do a monthly breast exam? Well, because it could SAVE your life! Early detection is the first step to becoming a survivor. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), “Most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer save thousands of lives each year, and that many more lives could be saved”.

American Cancer Society has a great PDF resource document that covers everything on breast cancer, and I mean everything! Get answers to everything from diet and exercise, mammograms, self-breast exams, to lifestyle-related risk factors for breast cancer. [Download the PDF Now!]
The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) has a complete list of great organizations that are working to fight cancer while educating women (and let’s face it) and men about breast cancer and other cancers. Click here to view the complete list.
Btw, kudos to the White House (or should I say Pink House) for participating in raising awareness for breast cancer awareness month.
I can’t believe it’s October already, can you?! It seems this year flew by like (snap your fingers) that! So much can and has happened in a year.
My daughter picked out this beautiful California grown bunches of fall flowers. I love all the fall colors w/a dash of sunflower. I really love fresh flowers in my home!
LOOK! at all those colors! Amazing, right!?
Mini yellow roses…
Look at the hybrid of this yellow + red piece of sunshine!
Soooooooooooooo…how was your weekend? Do anything interesting and fun? I had a fantastic weekend, as always! I mean, what’s not to love about spending time with ones who love you unconditionally–my daughter + her BFF, Jolie! They love each other and play together constantly. Gosh, I love my kids!
Make a great one, loves, here’s to a great week!
