My favourite pink things - Breast Cancer Awareness

With it being Breast Cancer awareness month this October, I thought I would write my own Pink Friday blog post today, sharing some of my favourite pink things. I don't expect this post to make a huge difference to the world, but I thought that it could at least be a way to remind us all to check our boobies! Please remember, that if you find anything abnormal, to go to your doctor straight away to get yourself checked. For any information or support about breast cancer, head over to BreastCancerCare.org.uk

I will be heading over there as soon as I have written this post to make a little donation to help towards all of the amazing work that they do.

Now, for my favourite pink things!


First of all we have Yankee Candle Summer Scoop. It's hard to open the lid off this jar without wanting to eat it all up. The scent is absolutely delicious. It totally reminds me of a strawberry ice cream I had on vacation in Spain and right now, I wish I was back there to have another. Ahh I'm totally day dreaming about ice cream right now! I've actually just ordered another one of these jars in the large version to give a friend for Christmas. I have a feeling I may have to order her something else so that I can keep this.  


It's very rare you will see me without this Oggi cup in my hand! I hate drinking water, but when I use this Oggi cup it somehow becomes bearable. I know, I'm totally sounding like a kid right now. Today I have filled it with my favourite drink, Robinson's summer fruit. So yummy! 


I have a desk full of Soap and Glory in my bedroom and I didn't want to go crazy and add all of them to my pink collection, but I had to pick this one. I chose this butter yourself moisture lotion. It's definitely a staple in my daily routine. I usually pop  it on just before bed. It does take a little while to soak in, so bare that in mind as you need a little while before popping on your pjs. 


I'm back into child mode with this Schwarzkopf supersoft (kids) detangling spray. My hair has been so bad lately that I found myself having to tackle tangles on a regular basis. Between this and my tangle teaser, my hair has come under control. I was totally obsessed with the orange lollies scented one from boots, until I discovered this! Not only is the bottle super cute, it smells amazing.


This EOS hand cream is a must in my hand bag. I love that it's non greasy and absorbs really quickly. I don't have to worry about not being able to reach for anything else in my bag whilst it sinks into my skin. I always have so many compliments over the scent every time I  use it too. Love! 


Another favourite from EOS is this lip balm. It's very moisturizing and so easy to apply. It's made from 100% natural ingredients. I'm making a point of not putting this EOS in my  hand bag though because I want to keep it pretty. I know, I'm a nerd, lol!


Although this grapefruit scent isn't quite for me, the body shop hand creams are some of my favourite hand lotions. Top of my list right now has to be the shea butter hand cream, but unfortunately that isn't pink!


Now on to nails. This maxfactor nailfinity in shade 704 disco pink is such a pretty pink! I love it. I usually wear this shade more in summer than winter. but I have no doubts that i'll manage to find an occasion for it this Autumn/ winter.


We're back to Soap and Glory. I guess we all knew I couldn't add just one soap and glory into the mix. I have quite a few shades of the sexy mother pucker in my collection, and right now this is one i'm using a lot. It's such a pretty colour.


How pretty is this lip stick? Again, something I tend to use more in summer but I can't put it away because I love it so much. It's the Maybelline colour sensational popsticks in 010 pink sugar. I first purchased this back in 2012 and I just keep rebuying it. 


I tried to avoid adding anymore soap and glory products, but this is something that goes into my bag on a daily basis. It's the hand maid antibacterial hand cleansing gel. I use hand sanitizers on a regular basis with work, but it's become an obsession and a must item in my handbag.


I hope you've enjoyed this post. What are your favourite pink items?
