Pink Beauty Collection / October is Pink Month!

Erica of The Glamorous Gleam sent an email five days ago, informing us that October is National Breast cancer Awareness Month, dedicated to increasing awareness of the importance of early breast cancer detection. The topic is close to our hearts, especially since our mom was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer in 2007. This was a very difficult stage in our family life, since our father has passed away when we were very young and our mom has always been the breadwinner. Back then, I (Tracy) just graduated college and Dawn was  just a sophomore, and our brother still in highschool.  But after almost a year of chemotherapy and countless medicines, she's now cancer-free! Today, she's living one of her dreams and is currently on a two-week long trip at the Holy Land (Jordan, Israel and Egypt)!

Want to know more? On a serious note, Erica states further that: 
The most common signs of breast cancer are a lump in the breast, abnormal thickening of the breast or a change in color or shape. You should perform a self breast exam at least once a month and report any abnormal findings to your health care provider. If you are 40 and over, you should regularly be getting a mammogram. Although breast cancer affects predominately women, men can also develop this illness so fellas pay attention to changes in your breast area as well. For more information, visit The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Website at
While all these details are important, there's a little something-something organized by Erica to cheer up our mood in celebration of this effort. While Facebookers are placing pink ribbons on their profile picture or purchasing pink paraphernalia, beauty bloggers can post their pink makeup collections!
