Posts in Pink Ribbon

Over on The Plastic Diaries, I did a little round-up of the Best of Pink Ribbon beauty products. It was fun, but while finding those goodies I did come across some great non-beauty Pink Ribbon products. I wanted to share my finds with you, mostly so you can tell me if I am right in thinking these items are stylish.

Marks & Spencer Pink Ribbon Umbrella

Umbrellas are a bit of a collectable for me. I rarely use them, because they are always in a ‘safe place’ rather than in a place I remember to use them. You know, boot of the car, hanging on the back of my front door, etc. Despite that, I can’t help but pick up a new pretty brolly.

I like this one for the cute black frill trim and the Pink and White ribbon print.

Fashion Targets Breast Cancer Bow Print Umbrella* is £15 from Marks & Spencer (international shipping available)

I won’t lie. To me, every month is Pink Ribbon month. Early on I started collecting the beautiful little jewels and pins that were released each October in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Why? Because I am a sucker for pink. Alas, this month we really are in Pink Ribbon territory and this year there are some beauty companies who have really out done themselves.

Today I want to share with you the Pink Ribbon products I am loving. These aren’t your regular re-packaged-in-pink moisturiser. These are some of the best pink ribbon releases I have ever seen, and that is saying something.

Great Lengths – Pale and Hot Pink Hair Extensions

Crazy hair colours are so hot right now but getting your hair pink is extremely difficult, especially if you are a brunette. This month Great Lengths, possibly the greatest hair extension company in the world, have released these limited edition pink strands. That means you don’t have to bleach the hell out of your own hair to add a dash of colour.

Official Description: Great Lengths Pale and Hot Pink Limited Edition Hair Extensions are designed to recognise the loss of a woman’s hair during treatment. Great Lengths will donate the $10 from the sale of each extension (which includes both application and future removal) to the National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.

AU $10 per strand (that means 100% goes to NBCF!) from Great Lengths salons. Visit the Great Lengths website for more details.

NIVEA Cooling Sunscreen review

Aerosol sunscreen is becoming a more popular choice but in this NIVEA Cooling Sunscreen review I’m introducing you to a sunscreen feature you never knew you needed. It’s life changing and I love it, but does this one benefit counteract NIVEA’s Ultra Sport Protect Cooling Aerosol SPF50+ defects?  Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading

Deciem Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner

Finding a good face cleanser shouldn’t be difficult but for me it’s one of those things I’m always looking to improve. I was recommended the Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner as an all-in-one solution for makeup removal and skin cleansing. I have dry skin and I’m lazy, so I want quick and easy without compromising on quality results.  Continue Reading
