This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – a cause that has to be close to all women’s hearts.
Whether you’re wear a AA or a DD cup, we all love making the most of our breasts. Breast cancer doesn’t make for easy breezy conversation, but with one out of every eight women being diagnosed, it makes sense to be upfront about our boobs.
I’m privileged to say that I went along to The Grosvenor House Hotel this week for the Breast Cancer Care fashion show and afternoon tea. And what an afternoon it was. Hosted by Denise Lewis, who lost her grandmother through breast cancer, the fashion show stars weren’t supermodels, but super women in their own right. They were women (and two men) who had all suffered from breast cancer. One of the women, Andrea told us her diagnoses story after the show with humour and courage, moving the whole ballroom to tears in the process. However, the afternoon wasn’t all about shedding tears, it was about enjoying and celebrating life
|TANGLE TEEZER'S PENELOPE PINK|
I think it’s wonderful that during Breast Cancer Awareness Month so many beauty companies including Bobbi Brown, Elemis, Estee Lauder...the list goes on, turn sales into pink pounds by creating special editions and giving donations. My ‘proper’ job is Creative Director of Tangle Teezer, the detangling hairbrush brand, and both Shaun Pulfrey – the inventor and CEO of the brand and myself wanted to give back too. Shaun’s mum has suffered from cancer so he knows how much support women need during this time. We’re tickled pink to have designed Penelope Pink our Doris Day inspired Compact Styler which is all candy pink bows and hearts. We’re donating 20% of the sales all year round (not just for the month of October) to Breast Cancer Care that give invaluable support to women during and after their diagnosis. What could be a better hair buy?
