Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Ann Taylor Cares Collection

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will spend the month of October last year highlighting some of the stores that are running special promotions to raise funds for breast cancer and other cancer-specific charities. With the purchase of any of the items we highlight over the course of this month a portion of the proceeds will be donated to various breast cancer charities.

Ann Taylor jewelry for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the A.T. Cares Collection: Fall 2015 Edition is now available in Ann Taylor stores and at through the end of the year.

The collection includes a charm bracelet ($59.50) and necklace ($49.50) and features emblems tied to powerful symbols, which each tell a story of love, hope and endurance. A whopping 50% of the purchase price from each item will support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, is an independent not-for-profit organization committed to funding scientific research to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.

Be sure to check out more Breast Cancer Awareness Month offers, most of which are only good during the month of October.

53% off 100% pure cosmetics

I recently wrote about my love of 100% Pure’s Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream (I’m still using it!). At the time I’d never heard of 100% Pure before and had certainly never seen a discount for the brand, but I just found a fantastic one at Gilt City!

  1. $25 for a $50 credit

It used to be that everything at e.l.f. Cosmetics cost $1, but they have slowly been raising their prices and now those $1 items cost a whopping $2-$3. Today, however, e.l.f. is taking us back to the good old days and some of their customer beauty favorites are on sale for just $1 again!

These four fan favorites are just $1 today, although there are a bunch more options available. Each normally costs $3.

Yay or Nay: Glitter

Glitter is back in full force, although, was it ever really gone?!

It looks amazing. And I’m not just saying that because I love all things shiny. I really do like this look! Sparkles. Shiny. Glitter. I’m in heaven!

Glitter can take your look up a level, but then again adding too much can look a little juvenile.

Here are some great ways to incorporate the trend into your fall wardrobe without overdoing it:

Adding a touch of glitter, or heck, a whole lot of glitter to your wardrobe this fall will make you look like you just stepped off the catwalk!


I actually like our finds better. Sorry not sorry fashion week! 😉

It’s so easy to add glitter to your look from head (or ear!) to toe! Adorable. I think all of these looks scream fun, not childish, though it really is a fine line to tow!

Yay or nay on this trend? Are you happy glitter is back?
