Let’s talk about boobies, breasts, boobs, chi-chis and boo boos (that’s what my 3 year old calls them). My pre-kiddies breast size was an unimpressive A cup which served me well since during most of my 20’s was spent surfing, cardio kickboxing and jumping in a mosh pit (just the mellow ones). In other words, I never gave much thought to them – they didn’t exactly command anyone’s attention.
←MY BREAST CANCER AWARENESS PRODUCT PICK: Estee Lauder – Evelyn Lauder and Elizabeth Hurley Dream Lip Collection ($29.50 – 20% the MSRP goes to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation).
I’ve had temporary brushes with having a larger cup size – a pair of “chicken cutlet” inserts in the dressing room literally made me LOL, during my pregnancies and breast feeding – which I spent simultaneously trying to cover them up and whipping them out. It was exhausting (having the boobs, not the breast feeding) and I couldn’t wait for them to go back to “normal”. Which after child #2 requires some major help from Victoria’s Secret.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I’ll be “running” in the Komen Race for a Cure (with my now B cup boobies) to raise a little funds for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. Let’s all remember and celebrate those we have lost, those who survived, our health and living each day with gratitude – no matter what size your boo boos are.

URBAN DECAY OCHO LOCO 24/7 GLIDE-ONE EYELINER SET ($59, $152 value, sephora.com, urbandecay.com). You want this. Aside from the fact that these liners are quite possibly the best on the market – there is not one ugly duckling in the lot. With 8 full-sized Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliners including must-have Perversion (ink black) – each rich earth toned or vibrant jewel toned liner gives eyes a burst of fruit flavor.
Hustle (medium brown metallic) and Junkie (deep teal shimmer) are my personal favorites – especially when paired together. Line with one of the earth tones and “pop” the upper and lower lash lines with the jewel tone for instant eye definition that simultaneously makes eyes look bigger and brighter.
