GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED!
Thank you for entering!
October marks the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer research and awareness is something close to my heart as breast cancer has affected my family significantly like it has many others. My mum's younger sister (my AWESOME aunty) is a breast cancer survivor and is an inspiration to me.
Being breast aware is very important as breast cancer does not acknowledge age, race and even gender. All women – including young women like myself – should examine their breasts regularly to check for any changes. This isn't a public service announcement or anything, it's just one of the causes I'm passionate about and I urge you all to please get behind it. Here are some great charities:
National Breast Cancer Foundation - promotes and supports breast cancer research
McGrath Foundation - raises money to place breast care nurses in communities across Australia.
Breast Cancer Australia - supports ongoing national breast cancer research and to raise awareness of early detection
Cancer Council of Australia
Please donate generously =) Now, on to the giveaway! To help spread the word, I am holding a “Polished Pink for October” giveaway to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Most of the items in the giveaway are pink (obviously!) and I do know that many people don’t like pink so I’ve tried to add some red and coral into the mix too.
One winner will receive the following items:

Ulta 3 Plum Violet
