Do The Self Check: Breast Self Exam For Breast Cancer

With October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it is important to pay attention to how you can not only raise money for breast cancer research, but to also raise awareness on how to know what is normal for you when examining your breasts. According to Susan G. Komen For The Cure, The signs of breast cancer are not the same for all women. It is important to know how your breasts normally look and feel. TSS Reader, Stephanie, shared that, "If you don't check enough, you won't feel the difference when you do decide to check". Therefore, the key is to make the BSE (breast self exam) a weekly routine. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Know the warning signs so early treatment can be addressed and hopefully save your life. If you notice any change, contact your health care provider and schedule an appointment.

Bright PINK Power Hour Highlights

Last week, Co-Founder Karen and TSS It Girl/ Zeta Tau Alpha, Victoria, had the pleasure of attending Westfield Southcenter Mall's Bright Pink Power Hour Fashion Show in Seattle. In case you didn't know, Bright Pink is the only national nonprofit dedicated to the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. We just couldn't miss out in participating in such an awesome event as 100% of the tickets sold went toward the nonprofit. Besides the cool raffle prizes {Karen won the Gene Juarez spa package!} and awesome vendors like The Confectional, SeattleMagazine, Luna, Styled Seattle, Go Girl, and so much more, we were especially intrigued by the fall fashion show! There are many looks to choose from this fall from affordable stores, all of which hit the runway that night. We had some personal favorites and below were the different fall fashion categories introduced on the runway:

Get the look with layers of silver and gold with studded, sparkly details

Get the look with faux fur, fitted leather pants and edgy prints

Get the look with soft sweaters and warm, cozy jackets

Get the look with ladylike silhouettes and dainty accessories

Get the look with rich fabrics and layers of lace, prints, and patterns

Get the look with ultra fitted dresses, statement accessories, and chic outerwear

Overall, the event was amazing and we loved supporting Bright Pink. Be sure to check out their non profit and offer a donation.
