Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2013

I'm sure you all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as always, there are a number of ways you can show your support. 

This year Breakthrough Breast Cancer have an exciting new campaign, the Great Pink Bake Off. Breakthrough Breast Cancer is recruiting an army of bakers to fire up their ovens and whip-up some support to help fund their life saving research on Friday 18th October. Head over to for more info. #GreatPinkBakeOff

You can also #ShopPink - This years collection includes something for everyone; Avon, ghd and cult US product GlamGlow have got your beauty needs covered. M&S, Warehouse, My Wardrobe, Laura Ashley, Sainsburys and Debenhams are also getting involved. A percentage from every purchase goes to the cause. Visit the Breakthrough Breast Cancer shop for a full list of products. Here are a couple of my faves - I feel a trip to Sainsbury's coming on, they have so many pretty things.
