Positively Pinkalicious

Jason Matlo's bathroom tissue dress for the White Cashmere Collection 2011 - Vote Couture for the Cure!

When it comes to colours, I would argue that no other shade is more powerful than pink.  From the moment they can talk, girls declare that, without a doubt, their favourite colour is pink.  As they get a little older, this love often grows to the point of complete obsession.  I've actually witnessed a poolside meltdown that lasted a full 10 minutes when my 3 year-old was asked to wear a lifejacket.  She kicked, screamed and clawed the jacket off like it was covered in smallpox, causing bystanders to back away, thinking that perhaps she'd gone rabid.  Why?  The lifejacket wasn't PINK!!!  AGGHHHH!  I'm happy to report that a few months down the road, this manic pinksession has marginally subsided (sort of...) but she, and I, will always place pink on a pedestal.  

In case you haven't heard, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, placing a special importance on pink all month long.  Whether you adore the colour like my daughter or just want to show your support for women who have battled breast cancer, make sure to get a little pinkalicious this month.  Proceeds from some of the items shown below will go towards breast cancer research, education, and treatment options, helping us work towards a future without breast cancer.  I'll wear those rose-coloured glasses!

Oooh, and don't forget to mark your calendars for White Oak's Mall's 2nd Annual Pinkapalooza, 'The Carnival that Cares', happening Saturday, February 18th, 2012.  Stroll through the mall and participate in fun, interactive games and activities to benefit the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.  Plus, we'll have face painters, balloon artists, jugglers, magicians and loads of incredible prizes.  Simply click on the Pinkapalooza icon at whiteoaksmall.ca to find out more and register your team.
