In the Guest House with The Breast Cancer Charities of America

Posted on October 5, 2011 in More Fun by | 1 comment

Last Friday we introduced our partnership with The Breast Cancer Charities of America (BCCA) for the month of October.  And today, we are very excited to have them in our Guest House so they can tell you a little bit more about themselves.  Fortunately there are a lot of organizations that have an active role in fighting breast cancer and the toll it takes on our lives but sometimes it’s hard to understand who does what.  Which is another reason we wanted to feature more about BCCA because we really believe in the role they’re playing right now (with their aptly named “Help Now Fund“) in the lives of women affected by breast cancer.  We really encourage you to read more about this wonderful group and get involved to help make a difference.  Here’s Erica…

Can you give us a brief understanding of what The Breast Cancer Charities of America is all about?

The Breast Cancer Charities of America is the only non-profit bringing the “integrated cancer care” message to the women of America, where the care ‘program’ involves every aspect of body, mind and spirit treatment to the cancer prevention, treatment and recovery effort. Integrated cancer care is employed in addition to, not in place of, orthodox medicine as many studies show that techniques like diet, exercise, and social support can be as powerful as drugs and surgery. Through our iGoPink: Fashion Fights Breast Cancer campaign, BCCA brings a fresh approach to finding the cure.

BCCA exists to deliver this message to women with breast cancer and to educate healthcare providers with this news. The result: we will change medicine and we will save lives.

Store of the Week – Lady Bird

Posted on October 3, 2011 in More Fun by | Comment

Pam Halferty and Emily Smith, owners of Lady Bird, have been “besties” since the first grade (don’t you dare ask them how old they are!) and though they hail from California, they both spent time on the east coast and fell in love with the Lilly Pulitzer brand.  Lucky for the ladies of San Marino, California that they decided to bring Lilly to the west coast and open up a Signature Store in March of 2010.  They knew the Pasadena community would love Lilly as much as they did and they were right!  They have great customers and Pasadena loves having a local Lilly shop where they can see all the goodies in person!  Here’s a little bit more about how these friends made Lady Bird a west coast Lilly Lover’s favorite!…
