Some more great companies helping support Breast Cancer this month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month has really brought the philanthropy in companies out. I think this charitableness by companies is an awesome idea. Companies should adopt this giving back attitude throught the year. I believe it would bring them more goodwill among their customers. I know many of us get frustrated and angry towards companies who are  just in it for the bigger bottom-line. What do you think?

Below I’ve found two more companies that have some really cool products to raise awareness. Check them out.


OPI has just come out with its new Pink of Hearts Nail Lacquer. This pale pink color has been created exclusively to raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

OPI will make a donation of $25,000 to help fuel research and development toward the fight against breast cancer.

DuWop fans will be pleased to hear that this brand is a big supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This new and adorable Purse Your Lips ($24) mini purse houses its Pink Shimmer Lip Venom (you know, the mega lip plumper that put them on the map). Ten percent of proceeds will be given to Cancer and Careers.

Cancer and Careers is an organization I have mentioned before that helps provide inspiration, guidance, help and insight to working women living with cancer. If you don’t already own a tube of Lip Venom, now’s your chance to stock up on a must-have makeup staple — and help a good cause at the same time.

My search for a Stylish Laptop Bag has come up with these designs

So I’ve been on the look out for a stylish computer bag. I’m so tired of the plain black generic bag that has no style. So I figured I would post some of the bags I found. I’ll tell you at the end which one I chose. Enjoy:

Some Modern shaped and looking bags:

Acme Made Designer Slim – Small $149.95

ACME MADE * The Designer Slim $159.99 – $189.99

Here are some Asian material bags:

Abbi New York Jade Silk Brocade Medium Computer Case $79.95

Women’s Business Cases: Laptop Tote, Business Bags For Women$79.99

Jacquard Asian Inspired Laptop Bag by Mango Tango $59.99

These bags look more like handbags but have all the mini compartments you need in a computer bag:

Leopard Animal Jungle Canvas Laptop Bag by Mango Tango $59.99

Faux Suede Laptop Bag by Mango Tango $59.99

MetStyle – Champs Elysees Business Bag – GC-CSB00PP by: MetStyle – $75.00

Milano Faux Crocodile Laptop Case by Mobile Edge $89.99

Baggallini Briefcase Bagg – BBC246 by: Baggallini – CareerBags $90.00

Mobile Edge Ladies Briefcase Full Grain Leather – METBL by: Mobile $279.99

Macy*s – Handbags & Accessories – McKlein Barrington Women’s Laptop Tote $134.99 (It comes in several other colors). And after I found this bag, I found this version that has wheels:

Glen Ellyn Leather Detachable – Wheeled Ladies Case – McKlein W Series [ #9436 ] – $169.99 Again this bag also comes in several colors. Three of which I showed above. I also found that the Orange color can be had at Amazon for cheaper than the other colors if you are feeling so inclined: McKlein Lake Forest Leather Women’s Briefcase – Orange: Apparel $145.00

These Kate Spade Bags probably will fit a small 13″ Laptop:

kate spade lisbon duchess $295.00

kate spade de gaulle triangular duffle $425.00

These bags are similar to the Generic Black bag I was talking about but they come in various fun colors. And here is the best part about them:

Pinder designs stylish laptop cases and bags in a variety of colors using only the strongest and best materials available including water repellent Ballistic Nylon, durable seat belts, 420D nylon interior and nickel plated hardware. Every bag is guaranteed for life and we donate 5% of the net proceeds to your choice of charities.

Laptop Cases by Pinder $69.00

After much consideration I’ve decided to buy the Glen Ellyn Leather Detachable – Wheeled Ladies Case – McKlein W Series. Why you may ask? Because it has a classic and slightly modern look I like. In addition it has the wheels that you can attach when you are traveling so you don’t have to kill your arm carrying it and all the files you might be carrying. So do you have a favorite?


How cute is this idea?

I was surfing the net and came across this cute Idea. A ring with interchangeable lipglosses by Urban Decay. Here are the details and the link:

Urban Decay Cosmetics – Poison Ring MMVI – Lip Gloss Ring

Poison Ring MMVI

Pick your poison, then drop it into our wicked Poison Ring. An ingenious place to stash one of three lip potions, our silver-plated ring features a darkly sexy and slightly macabre piece of art… forever preserved in enamel. Only a lucky few will ever wear one of these limited edition gems. Hiding your beauty secrets was never so intriguing.

A must-have for any Urban Decay addict, the Poison Ring comes packaged in a collectable box – gorgeous purple faux snakeskin box lined with black velour.

LIMITED EDITION Fill Weight: 0.3g / 0.01 US oz

  • 3 interchangeable XXX Shine Lip Glosses.
  • Non-returnable if gloss is used or in unsellable condition.

Price: $50.00

This reminds me of something similar we had when I was a kid. It wasn’t this nice nor as expensive. I like this one much better. I may have to get one because I am a lipgloss junkie. This new trend away from lipgloss and towards lipstick is not making me happy. Oh well as Heidi Klum says “One day your in……The next day your out!”…..LOL Seems my favorite is out of favor this season but it will rise again 😉


$31 Spa Treatments Thruout Oct…Great Oppurtunity to celebrate Breast cancer month and get beautiful in the process

Saw this article on Bella Sugar and thought it was a good idea so I figured I would share with you guys. If you live in Arizona | California | Florida including Tampa Bay and South Florida | Georgia | Illinois including Chicago and Suburbs | Indiana | Michigan | Minnesota | Missouri | New York | Oregon | Texas | Wisconsin, you are one of the lucky ones. An event called Pretty in Pink is being run for the month of October where awareness and funds will be raised for the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization. All month long, spas and salons across
the country will offer $31 treatments to raise awareness and money for
the Y-Me National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation. So you can get
laser hair removal, mesotherapy, IPL, microdermabrasion, haircuts,
pedicures and more for just $31 each. It’s a steal, and as Sherbear 5
says, it’s for a good cause.

Here is the link to look up the spa’s that are participating: Pretty in Pink presented by

So go treat yourself and help a good cause.
