Shopping for a Cause!

As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This is a cause that is very dear to my heart, as my grandmother passed away from breast cancer.
I love all of the pink store windows (in Charleston, there is a competition every October for the best store-window design) and all of the items that are distributed in pink especially for the cause!

Here are some of my favorite items I've found in various "Shopping for a Cause" articles.
By purchasing any of these things, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research.
Time to get your pink on!

*****
I supported breast cancer research on Friday night.  
Well, actually Brandon did since he paid.
We went to my favorite restaurant, O-ku (I've mentioned it here).
They had a specialty martini called the "Lindsey-tini" and 100% of the proceeds went to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
It was pink & very delish.

...speaking of Brandon.
Look what I found tonight!
In 2005-2006, I saved my ticket from almost every movie/concert/sporting event that Brandon and I went to. This isn't even all of them ...but wow! 

I was really into scrap-booking at the time & felt the need to save absolutely everything in case I wanted to use it for a scrapbook page. 

I absolutely hate clutter these days, so I want to throw this kind of  "collection" away, but I just can't bring myself to do it! 

This is just a year or so worth of tickets! 
We obviously liked movies a lot back then.

xo.

  2. The pink martini is the best! haha I would love to try it. Also, not sure if you watch pro-football but all the guys are wearing pink cleats, towels, hats, etc all month and the coaches have pink ribbons too! It doesn't surprise me that you have all those ticket stubs... I really hope your creativity rubs off on me :)

  4. I'm sorry to hear that :( It's a scary disease, that's for sure. I won't be there because I'm going on a vacation this Friday. My boyfriend, brother & his girlfriend are going on a cruise. I wish I could be in two places at once!

  5. So cute that you have all those stubs saved! I just love those boots and I have such a weird addiction to rain boots, I think because I never get to wear them here. Every time I'm in NY I buy another pair and they just sit in my closet. I guess there are worse things to collect!

  6. I used to save my stubs too! These are all great products to purchase for a great cause! I wrote a post about this too, there's so many pink things to buy, I want them all! I just stumbled on your blog, and I LOVE it! It seems we have a lot in common! Have a great day!
