Estée Lauder pioneered the pink ribbon movement via founder Evelyn Lauder back in 1992 with one goal: to end breast cancer. Since then, the company has raised over $70 million globally, funding medical research grants actively working in over seventy countries around the world. Progress has been made in terms of patient mortality rates decreasing significantly since the 1980s and survival rates are better than ever, granted it’s detected early. Treatments are now being customized to the type of breast cancer with less invasive surgery to boot.
While there is so much more to be done, there is definitely no shortage of awareness and this year’s campaign, It’s #TimeToEndBreastCancer is a strong call to action that now, more than ever, the disease should be the focus when it comes to women’s health. Show your support by making Pleasures Intense you new signature scent. Launched in 2002, the floral scent with of top notes of peony, black currant, ylang-ylang, green lily and cassis, middle and base notes varying from lily, jasmine, maple and vanilla comprise the elaborate mix of flavors. The delicious scent is long lasting and so refreshing, especially ideal in our warm tropical climate. Be one with survivors and show your support by thinking pink with Estee.
Kate Spade’s latest collection is chock-full of pink, definitely on track in showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For any bag lover, showing solidarity with a pink purse is the perfect way to show support while looking like a million bucks! We love pairing baby pink with black to soften the look, and these bags look great either with a casual jeans and tee look or a chic LBD. Check out Kate Spade’s latest collection at the shop and prepare to blush.
MAC lippies have long been a beauty staple for many women who aren’t afraid to make a statement and now, more than ever, that statement should be louder, stronger and bolder. We adore their matte lipstick in Candy Yum Yum, a bright pink shade that comes in an equally bold bullet in the same color (the better to find it in your make-up kit or purse).
The pastries at Paul aren’t only a sight for sore eyes, they taste just as scrumptious and completely bring joy with every bite. Meticulously made and baked to perfection, the Éclair Fraise is a strawberry lover’s dream made with traditional choux pastry, white chocolate cream and fresh strawberries.
Prefer a less indulgent version? Try the Tartelette Fraise, a shortcrust pastry case filled with crème patisserie and topped with even more fresh strawberries. This October, celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a sweet meal ender that’s tickled pink — a reminder of solidarity to your fellow females battling the disease and making life a little sweeter with these treats.
Accessory Lab has semi-precious stones for every need and personality, depending on what the customer is drawn to: whatever strikes your fancy when you enter the shop is meant for you.

Rose quartz is the stone for love and relationships, very appropriate in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness month and women the world over. Wear this on your wrist and you attract good relationships and luck in love. Now what could be better than that?
