Anyone who knows me will know that low-cut tops, tight dresses, backless/strapless or revealing clothes are not my thing. At all. Especially on social media (I’ll leave that to the Kardashians). I really battled with the idea of posting this because it pushed me so far out of my comfort zone, but these photos are so much more than just boobies…
Here’s five easy ways to give back, show support and help the fight against breast cancer this October.
The French lingerie brand, located in Mall of the Emirates, City Walk, Dubai Mall, Deira City Centre, Ibn Battuta, Mirdif City Centre and Festival City, will donate Dhs5 from every bra purchase to the Breast Cancer Awareness initiative, Pink Caravan. Chantelle have committed to donate a minimum of Dhs15,00, which is equivalent to one chemotherapy session.
Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi will host a yoga morning this Saturday 14th and 9.30am. Guests are encourages to donate a minimum of Dhs40, which will be donated to UAE breast cancer awareness initiative Pink Caravan.
The Nail Spa
Add some pink nail art to your manicure at The Nail Spa during the month of October, and proceeds made will be donated to Pink Caravan, a UAE-based Breast Cancer Awareness initiative. And if nail art isn’t your thing, 25% of proceeds from any pink retail item sold during October will also go towards the cause.
800flower is offering four free customised breast cancer-themed cookies with every purchase from www.800flower.ae this month. Just use the code Awareness2017 at checkout to help spread awareness and show your support.
Tips & Toes
My favourite UAE-based salon Tips & Toes will be hosting two Breast Cancer Awareness afternoons (19th October in Abu Dhabi and 25th October at the Barsha branch in Dubai), where experts will be teaching attendees about the signs the symptoms of breast cancer. And if you can’t make either dates, book yourself in for a Treatment of the Month with a 30-minute head, neck and shoulder massage, and Tips & Toes will donate a percentage of your bill towards paying for the chemotherapy treatment of UAE-based breast cancer patient Nahla Sherif, who has been battling cancer since 2014. And if that’s not enough, pink accessories and gadgets, from vanity bags to phone cases, will be on sale throughout October, with profits going towards the fight against breast cancer.
