October is one of my favorite months out of the year not just because fall is in full swing, but because it is the month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.
Throughout the year we always here about raising awareness for breast cancer, which is great, but what I love about October is the awareness is amped up and the conversations about how we have all been affected by Breast Cancer are ever present. The events are every night, products galore and the conversation is always at the forefront. Every October I try and figure out ways to bring awareness and show my support.
This year I have decided to write about and similar to years past I always pick up products where the proceeds give back to Breast Cancer Research and also show support with their stand out pink.
Don’t be afraid to rock Pink, its the new black especially in October !

Watching sports has been one of America’s past times for a very long time. I know I fall into this category. Now how do you say I got into watching sports? My dad has been a lover of sports since he was little. So for me it started in the womb and I was born into rocking Chicago sports gear and routing for Chicago teams, which I bleed Chicago sports through and through. AS I got older every sports season became not just seeing my teams win, but about spending qulaity time with my dad and the rest of my family.
Supporting my teams and all the sports teams is more than that, don’t get me wrong watching them win is amazing, but it is also about family, friendship and laughter. Watching sports with my dad and the rest of my family is where my heart is always ! I will never be to old for this and as I have gotten older it is fun to incorporate my love of sports into my love of fashion . Now I can love both at the same time !
My love of sports goes deep and way back to the beginning. It will always be where my heart is because it’s all about family for me (the fashion is a welcomed bonus).
What is your favorite sport to watch? or What is your favorite pastime to experince with your family?
