Pretty in Pink: OK! Magazine and SPLAT Haircolor Event w/ Ariana Madix

As you’re well aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We’re already highlighted several products that you can purchase to support the cause year’ round (and we will be highlighting more soon). Today we’re highlighting a wonderful event we attended to raise awareness for Breast cancer and early stage detection. OK! Magazine and SPLAT Haircolor, with host Ariana Madix from Vanderpump Rules, treated invited guests to a sake bar, delicious pink treats, pink SPLAT hair accents, polish changes with a pink Breast Cancer nail decal, and a SPLAT photo booth at the OK! Magazine and SPLAT Haircolor Pink Hair, We Care event.

OK! Magazine and SPLAT Haircolor offered guests hair styling with two pink SPLAT Hair Chalk colors – Dusty Rose, and the new Pink Hearts (featured above). SPLAT Hair Chalk is a beautiful way to add pastel color highlights to your hair. The chalk slides on dry and instantly adds just the right touch of color. SPLAT Hair Chalk comes housed in a small compact that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, making it easy to hold onto and apply to your hair. The result is a soft color that is easy to brush, curl or style after application.

We had a great time talking all things beauty with Celebrity Colorist Stephanie Brown and OK! Magazine Beauty Editor Alana Peden, as we sipped on Bartenura Moscato, and indulged in pink cupcakes, and other delicious sweet treats.

The evening ended with fun pics at the photo booth, the opportunity to take home the SPLAT Hair Chalk in our choice of pink hue and a promise to rock pink hair to show that we care. There’s still time to show your support for the cause and of course you can support Breast Cancer research all year round and not just in October.

Dollars That Make a Difference: Pink Products that Support Breast Cancer Awareness

As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer is the 2nd most common cancer in women and men worldwide. On a global scale, one in four cases of cancer in women is now breast cancer. By now, most people associate the pink ribbon with Breast Cancer Awareness; in fact, it’s been the official symbol since the early 90’s.

image-breast-cancer-awareness-ribbon

“Pink is the quintessential female color,” says Margaret Welch, director of the Color Association of the United States. “The profile on pink is playful, life-affirming. We have studies as to its calming effect, its quieting effect, its lessening of stress. [Pastel pink] is a shade known to be health-giving; that’s why we have expressions like ‘in the pink.’ You can’t say a bad thing about it.” Pink is, in other words, everything cancer notably is not. (www.thinkbeforeyoupink.org)

What you may not know is all the pink things you can put on, besides a ribbon, to support breast cancer research and awareness. According to the Estee Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, each $50.00 donation translates to approximately one hour of lifesaving cancer research. From socks and scrubs to purses and pins, you can proudly wear your support for this cause. Even your pooch can get in on the fun! Websites like The Breast Cancer Site and The Pink Ribbon Store are specifically geared towards raising money through merchandise sales year-round. Other retailers, like Macy’s and Tory Birch, develop limited-edition products for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

And fellas, pink isn’t just for the ladies. Don’t forget, men can get breast cancer too. You too can shop for a cause – spiff up your suit with this bowtie, or show your support at the gym by donning a “real men wear pink” tee. Speaking of fitness, check out some of these sporty activewear and accessory options. There are literally thousands of products out there, some that are quite practical, that will help your dollars make a difference. We all get caught in the rain from time to time, so why not keep this umbrella handy? And what about office supplies? Everyone needs Post-Its!

While shopping for these products can be a lot of fun, don’t forget to “think before you pink” to make sure what you’re buying directly supports BCRA.

“The group recommends donors find out exactly what charities do with donations and whether that matches what donors want. For example…a little research might reveal that one breast cancer charity is paying for mammograms, another is funding basic research and yet another is spending little or no money on breast cancer programs. The advocacy group Breast Cancer Action has warned for years — in its Think Before You Pink campaign — that sales of some products adorned with pink ribbons raise no breast cancer money. Some proceeds from other products do go to charities. But the group says consumers should investigate those charities before buying.” (USA Today)

Pink not your thing? You can always just donate directly to a worthy cause that benefits breast cancer research and awareness. By wearing pink or sharing green, you can easily support the fight to cure breast cancer once and for all. Every dollar given, and every life affected, counts in this fight.

This is a “sponsored post.” The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value to write it. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Land’s End’s The Pink Thread Project: Awareness You Can Wear

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and Land’s End has come up with a fashionable way to show your support and help raise awareness. Teaming up with Breastcancer.org, Land’s End has come up with The Pink Thread Project. Customers are able to choose from six different (light or dark) pink embroideries to add on to any Land’s End item being purchased. The embroidery costs only $6.00 (that’s less than shipping and handling on some websites!) and 75% of the fee is donated to Breastcancer.org. What a cute way to show support!

The pink embroidery adds an eye-catching pop of color.

You can share your Pink Thread (your reason for supporting, whoever or whatever they are) on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using @Landsend and #pinkthread in your posts. Land’s End will be donating $1 to Breastcancer.org for every post made (up to $10,000). I personally think that The Pink Thread Project is a great way to start October off with some positivity plus you’re getting some very fashionable additions to your closet! The Pink Thread Project will be taking place from now until October 31st – remember: a little pink goes a long way! Here are a few more pictures of Land’s End items with their Pink Project embroideries:

I love the color combination of the deep pink and navy blue – it is bold and makes a statement even though the embroidery is small. 

I love pink and white as a color combination, it’s classic, chic, and clean.
