After spending four hours mixing custom blend foundations for 18 models for the upcoming A Fashionable Taste Fashion Show in Houston next month, it occured to me that this show, where all proceeds benefit the American Heart Association, wasn’t scheduled in February on accident. I recently became aware that February is Heart Awareness month, and National Wear Red day is Feb. 3. I encourage everyone to show support by wearing red this Friday, and to continue supporting the cause throughout the month of February. You can visit the Go Red For Women or the American Heart Association websites for ways to give to support the cause, some ideas include:
1. Join or host a Go Red Luncheon in your area
2. Have a Go Red Get Together (materials available on the Go Red for Women website)
3. Make a donation in honor of a loved one, or better yet, a complete stranger
4. Volunteer for or attend an event in your community (click HERE for events in your area)
If you’re in the Houston area on February 18, get tickets to the Fashionable Taste Fashion Show, presented by Second Wind for Life, and enjoy an evening of fashion and entertainment for a good cause. Motives will be the sponsoring makeup line and featured on the models, so stop by and see me at the Motives booth!
I think by now everyone is fully aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. From Susan G. Komen’s nationwide Race for the Cure to the NFL’s hot pink mouthguards and cleats for weeks 4 through 7 of the season, everyone steps up this month to show their support. I think even Eggland’s Best eggs have a tiny pink ribbon printed on their eggs for the next few weeks. Motives by Loren Ridinger Goes Pink and shows their support for breast cancer awareness by donating $1 to earlier.org for every Inspired Collagen Core Lipstick and Brilliant Mineral Lipstick purchased during the month of October. I love these colors to begin with, but I love them even more knowing that they support the awareness of a cancer that has affected so many. I think everyone knows someone that has been affected by breast cancer or has battled it themselves. My grandmother was a survivor, and I have more than a few close family friends that beat the disease. Not everyone is as fortunate, and my thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones at some point. Early detection is crucial, ladies, so make sure you get checked regularly and even more often if there’s family history! Here’s to the fighters out there, keep your chin up and think pink!!
