October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is a cause particularly close to my heart. When I was 25 I found a lump in my left breast, after several months of stress and doctors appointments it was removed and declared to be benign. And this year, my wonderful mother was diagnosed and fought breast cancer like a total badass and continues to beat it. Check your boobs ladies, give yourself a squeeze. Remind your friends and your moms and your aunts to do a self exam and get a mammogram. 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer. Be aware, be diligent, save lives.

Since I’ve gotten a bunch of messages asking the same two questions, here are you answers! The lipstick I’m wearing in the “Hollywood Makeup Tricks” post on ABM is from Urban Decay and it’s called Bang. I’m also wearing the matching liner. And my boots are by MIA (I got them at Off Broadway shoes but I think you can get them online too?). There you go!
