Bright Pink

Every October beauty and fashion labels alike, join forces to draw awareness to a problem threatening women around the globe. Needless to say, in October we wear pink & we wear it proud!

Now, don't hate me for pointing this out, but more often than not I find "think pink" product a little dull– definitely pink, but not entirely on trend. Bear with me, if this wasn't a fashion blog, this wouldn't matter one bit, but I feel a sense of obligation to only point you toward product I myself would purchase (plus, you can always go online and make a donation directly to the charity of your choice, so shopping pink isn't your only means for helping out).

That being said, this month I kept an eye out for clever product & fresh ideas that would allow me to give back & enjoy my purchases! It being the last week of October, this is your final chance to hop in on some of these limited edition products, and you can shop them directly through the links below.

But that's not all, I also found an incredibly practical way to support the charity of your choice year round...

Perhaps you've already hear of Amazon Smile, but I only recently discovered it & am highly impressed! Amazon Smile is perhaps the most practical way to provide the charity of your choice with year-round support, and all you have to do is keep shopping as normal. To set this up, simply visit and select your charity, then bookmark the site for convenience.

From this point on, every time you make a purchase through the "smile" side of, Amazon will send a portion of that purchase to your designated charity. This shopping option simply makes sense, and there's really no reason not to use it.

Personally, my account is set to support Bright Pink, the only national non-profit focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support for high-risk individuals, and while I highly recommend them, you are welcome to choose outside of the October theme.

In addition to the items bellow, other brands providing October unique collections/promos include Emi-Jay, Paul Mitchell, Hanky Panky, Bloomingdales, and Fabletics.

Happy Shopping!

Happy Friday!!! Can we take a moment out of respect for this dress? This dress needs a party– stat!...

I can't tell you how excited I am to share today's post with you, especially because it includes two of my favorite things: shopping & vino!

Each year, Westfield Old Orchard celebrates summer in style with a unique evening of fashion meets vino. This year, Westfield has teamed up with Wine Channel TV to bring you 30 of the best wines from around the globe! Westfield was extremely generous in asking me to co-host the event with certified sommelier, Jessica Altieri, and I honestly can't wait to meet her! Have any of you watched Somm? Add it to your weekend list– serious respect for sommeliers!

The Sip & Shop event takes place next Thursday June 26th and begins at 5pm with the VIP rooftop party starting at 8pm. In a nutshell, what you'll experience is a modern wine tour through Westfield's outdoor shopping center, the 30 carefully currated wines strategically mapped in partnership with 30 of the center's most loved shops. Heads up, this event pairs well with exclusive discounts ;)

In addition, from 5-8pm guests will take in all that Old Orchard has to offer while listening to musical entertainment from Mo-town crooners, R-Gang. For the VIP session, celebrity guest, MS David Glancy CEO and founder of the San Francisco Wine School will be hosting a special “Genius Sips” segment and an exclusive blind tasting you won’t want to miss!

But that's not all! Remember Bright Pink? Nothing makes me happier than a fun event for a good cause, and I'm happy to say that this year's Sip & Shop evening will benefit our friends at Bright Pink!

So here's the deal, Westfield and I really want to celebrate summer with you, so we're giving away 4 tickets to the event!!!! Two lucky Glitterary readers will win tickets to Sip & Shop with a friend!

Ticket's for the main event are $25 with VIP access for an addition $10, and you'll want to get your tickets stat, because space is limited! Keep in mind, to attend this event, you must be over 21.
