Mesothelioma Awareness Day

A really nice guy named Cameron Von St. James contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I could share a post about Mesothelioma awareness for Mesothelioma Awareness Day (September 26th) in hopes that it would bring enlightenment to those of us (myself included) who didn't know a whole lot about Mesothelioma.

Cameron's wife Heather is a Mesothelioma survivor.  She was diagnosed eight years ago.  Only three months after the birth of their daughter Lily, Heather was given the devastating news that she only had 15 months to live.  Today, Heather is not only surviving but thriving, thanks to life saving surgery.  Not one to sit on their laurels after receiving such a blessing, Cameron, Heather and Lily have made it their mission to educate and spread awareness of Mesothelioma.

In honor of the 10th Annual Mesothelioma Awareness Day and Heather's brave fight, I am spreading the word as well!  You can learn about Mesothelioma cancer, Mesothelioma treatment & even check out Heather's personal Mesothelioma awareness page.  Feel free to follow Heather on Facebook or Twitter as well.  Thank you to Cameron, Heather & Lily for letting me help spread awareness!

Introducing #MMFallFashion!

This is a Fashionista Event Opportunity which is hosted by Still Blonde after all these YEARS & Modly Chic.

Having color in your wardrobe will never go out of style.  With Autumn approaching, it's time to turn towards deep jewel tones.  Adding colors like eggplant, royal blue, burnt sienna, emerald green & garnet bring your wardrobe to the forefront of Fall style.

Monroe & Main is one of my go-to places to shop for gorgeous Fall fashion.  Their clothing & accessories feature rich, saturated shades that will work with everyone.  No matter your mood, Monroe & Main carries beautiful clothing & accessories to work with how you're feeling.

Having fun with it!

One of my favorite dresses right now is the Bejeweled Sheath Dress.  I can't get over how gorgeous the color is!  The Bejeweled Sheath Dress comes in a stunning eggplant color with a bejeweled band that enhances your shape.


The dress features princess seams in the skirt & a low v-neckline in the back.  (ARV $69.95-$79.95)  I adore how versatile this dress is!  It can easily be worn business-casual with ballet flats & a cardigan, date night with edgy accessories or dressy with a nice pair of heels & subdued accessories.

One of my favorite ways to wear this dress is with my gold sequin cardigan (also from Monroe and Main) and my sand colored peep-toe pumps.  Since the dress is so gorgeously bejeweled, I try to keep the jewelry to a minimum, only adding a cute necklace and/or few simple bracelets.  

Feeling sassy!

My lovely readers, do I have a surprise for you!  I'm giving away a Monroe & Main Studded Tote 3-in-1 (ARV $99.95) to one lucky winner!   You get a huge tote, bag & coin purse in this beautiful trio.  Whether you wear them together or separate, these stylish items are sure to be a fashion favorite.  (tote approx. 13 3/4" l x 6 3/4" w x 12" h; bag has 3 inside pockets and adjustable strap; approx. 12 1/4" l x 5" w 8 1/2" d; purse has zip top and loop strap; approx. 5 3/4" l x 4" d.)
