Curves Around the World: Pink

Hello everyone! I hope your having a great week so far, I can't believe how fast October is going but I'm enjoying the weather slowly cooling down. 
As you might already know it's that time again for another "Curves Around the World" post and I was really excited for this weeks theme because it's a theme with a purpose. This week's theme is "Pink" in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month! 

Breast Cancer is something that affects everyone, it can happen to a mother, sister, aunt, cousin, or friend. According to nationalbreastcancer.org 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and that's a very small ratio. So that means someone in your life will be diagnosed with breast cancer. 
For me it's my auntie Amy, she was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago and had a mastectomy on one of her breast and has been cancer free since. She is a special person in my life because I think of her as my second mom. She is also the one person who always made me feel good about myself, she never hesitates to tell me I'm beautiful and she always compliments me on my outfits when ever I see her. I think she is the one person who believed in me when I didn't even believe in myself. That's why I dedicate this post to my Aunt! :) 
I honestly wanted to find a breast cancer awareness t-shirt but for some reason I couldn't find one. I went to several stores and didn't find anything, I couldn't even find a pin. I did find water bottles, hats, socks, sweatbands, and headbands, all of which wouldn't fit into an outfit. So I decided to just go pink with my outfit, I'm wearing a pink sweater, pink makeup and I'm also wearing earrings that have pink bows on them.

You can't really tell but the bow is a baby pink, the colors don't show too well in the picture. I just had to show a shot of the earrings because they are just too pretty not to! :)

Since the weather is starting to cool down that means I can start to do light layers and I get to take out the boots. I love wearing boots so I was excited to start taking them out to wear and since they are short boots there not too bad in the warmer weather because I'm not going to lie it was in the high 70's and low 80's this day. So I actually ended up changing my top to a tank top afterwards because the weather. But I'm so ready for the cooler weather, I hope it comes soon! 
I tried to take a closer picture to show my pink makeup but it doesn't really show up. I tried for the first time using a pink eye shadow but it didn't really show up. But yeah I am really happy with the way my outfit came out even though I wasn't able to get any breast cancer awareness gear.

  3. Came across your blog through Aislynn. I absolutely love your "pink" outfit, and after scrolling through your posts, your style in general. This look is so flirty and fun, and I think the pink make-up gives you a really fresh, rosy look. And those Tarina Tarantino earrings! I've lusted over her pieces forever! So happy I found your blog! :-)
