Shop for the cause
The fight against breast cancer has a powerful secret weapon: our love of shopping. We don’t exactly need an excuse to buy something cute and pink… but we do love knowing we’re contributing to a good cause as we’re buying something cute and pink.
Essie Pink Ribbon mini duo: Soft pink polish with a hint of shimmer (and it actually stays put!), plus a cute travel-sized nail file. $11 www.essie.com
“Comfort Meets Cause” Ouchless brush: Pick up one up next time you’re at the drugstore, or visit their website to place a bid on one that’s signed by a celeb such as Eva Longoria, J. Lo or Josh Hartnett. The auction runs until October 31. $10.99 at most drugstores
DuWop Power Kiss Lip Venom: SThe lip-plumping wonder we know and love, in an adorable pink case with a mirror and metal strap (just like a little purse), with a touch of pink shimmer. $22.99 at Sephora
Scotch Pink Duct tape: It’s not your usual beauty product, sure. But in addition to adding a girly burst of colour to our toolboxes (and every woman should have her own tools!), duct tape is great for quick-fixing hems, keeping bra straps in place and other fashion emergencies. $4.99 at Home Depot, Canadian Tire and other select retailers.
