Stay Aware with Glamulet

As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  This is a huge month for raising awareness to the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.  Did you know, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime?  It seems unreal to me that a disease like this still doesn't have a cure.

While breast cancer doesn't affect my family and I directly, I do have quite a few friends who have had to cope with family being diagnosed.  Enough is enough, and as a social and loud generation, we need to do all we can to raise awareness, and find a cure.

Throughout this month tons of brands, restaurants, and sports teams will show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing pink and giving portions of sales to help the cause.  While this is all important, of course, it is also important to educate yourself on the issue- here is a great fact page from the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  Supporting the cause is maximized when you're actually educated about the issue.

I'm proud to be teaming up with Glamulet on their Pink Limited Edition Charms, which were created to support the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.  For every set of Pink Charms added to your cart, 50% of what you spend is donated directly to breast cancer charities.  I highly suggest checking out their Pink Charm selection, they're affordable (actually, they're on sale right now!), and fit all major brands of charm bracelets.

I'm also loving their complete bracelets, which are also on sale, and in stock!

The most important part of this month is educating yourself and learning about ways you can help the cause.  I encourage you to take time out to explore ways you can support Breast Cancer Awareness and help to empower women from this deadly disease.

Recipe Wedneday: Grilled Rosemary Pork Loin

I'm finally getting into a routine where I'm cooking more, now that I'm back working, and especially since I have a ton of fall recipes I'm anxiously awaiting to try.  Last week I made a simple grilled rosemary pork loin, with corn, and my favorite Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Macaroni & Cheese.

I marinated two pork loins in olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute.  I threw them on the grill and topped them with fresh rosemary.

I didn't have any fresh veggies this night I cooked, which I wasn't pleased about.  I did however have some frozen corn.  So I took it out and put that on the grill too and grilled it.  Literally from freezer to grill, I had no idea that would be so easy.  I put a little bit of butter over it to give it some flavor.

Lastly, I put the frozen macaroni & cheese in the toaster over.  I seriously love the reduced guilt version, even better than the original.  It's super easy to make, and tastes delicious.  I grilled the pork about 5 minutes on each side.  The rosemary grilling made my kitchen smell so amazing!

Once everything was done I sat down on my couch and enjoyed a low mess, high quality dinner for one!

Such an easy weeknight dinner!  I was running low on items but I was able to whip up something quick and hearty.

Fall Polish Favorites

I found myself counting down the days until I could switch my polish from light to dark.  My first fall polish this year was Lincoln Park After Dark*, it's just such a classic I was dying to have it on my nails again.

Fall Favorites Tag!

I'm mildly obsessed with Jaclyn Hill, I find her down to earth, funny, gorgeous, and overall just a real woman who has created her passion into a mini empire of sorts.  I was watching her newest video, The Fall Favorites Tag, and realized that I've never done any sort of tag here on Love. Life. Beauty. before.  So, in an effort to become more one-on-one and personal with you lovely readers, I figured I'd give it a try!
