The Chief Blonde Remarks: I was fortunate enough to be sent samples of both the Motives® Mineral Lipstick in Brilliant and Motives® Collagen Core Lipstick in Inspired. I am really adoring the Inspired. It makes my slightly vintage lips all soft and supple. The color is just right for my skin–which isn’t easy for a pale skinned wonder like myself. The lipstick seems to have a cinnamon smell–not sure–but whatever it is, I LIKEY. I am sure that Motives will be a popular choice by those who buy products to support Breast Cancer. I see myself as a continued fan!

How often can you combine a high quality tee (cut beautifully, nice long length for tucking or hiding, beautiful graphics, the price tag attached with an “Iris” bracelet, and made in USA!) with one that supports causes– always– wherever it is sold? Want to do good for breast cancer or world hunger? Project Iris is produced to support the cause.
Pieces of Me by Veronica Neave
Could you do it? Could you face the choices that Veronica Neave faced and make the choices that she felt compelled to make? Veronica Neave when confronted with the reality of having the BBCA2 gene mutation (80% chance of getting breast cancer) must decide if she will remove her healthy breasts and also her ovaries. In her book Pieces of Me, Neave contemplates these overwhelming choices as well as facing well meaning “advice” from others, along with her own beliefs on body image, sexuality, and lost identity. (Bonneville Books, $13.99, Advance Copy)
The Chief Blonde Remarks: I can find this book so shocking! How can someone begin to grapple with the choices that Neave had to face? Her honesty and openness might just get the next person through that has to face these incredible choices.
Finding you Way Back to Life (and Love) after Breast Cancer
This book by Gina M. Maisano, a two time Breast Cancer Survivor, will help you put the cancer behind you and get you back to yourself! Part One of Intimacy After Breast Cancer will help you gain control of your spirit and body. Book Two will help you find your sexual self. Life, Love and Intimacy DO NOT have to end after Breast Cancer. (Square one Publishers, $16.95)
The Cheif Blonde Remarks: I was faced with some of these same issues after a hysterectomy. I know that I worried how I would feel. Would I still be me? Would my husband still love me? Could I ever get my Mojo back? And no doctor ever discussed ANY of this with me. I never read any material on it. I am quite sure that Breast Cancer survivors struggles are even worse and more heartfelt. In the literature provided with the book, one reviewer noted that it’s a book that fills a gap in the Breast Cancer Awareness literature. I agree.
