Small Action. Big Difference.

In Jewelry, Kids on September 4, 2012 at 4:11 PM

I know it has been a while since my last post.  And, for those who are looking for recipes, ideas, and the like, believe me, they’re in my head, pictures on my phone and now it’s just a matter of getting my fingers to the keyboard.  I’m working on how to make a faster transition.  I think I feel like I have to “prepare” or figure out when I will have enough time. I think I need to do just as I’m doing here and post short, sweet messages and just be okay with that.  It’s that dang-on lawyer in me.  Over analyzing and wanting to tell you ALL the details!!! LOL!  Okay.  So I will work on it.  Maybe I’ll just post pictures of food and tell you what to throw in the pot (my recipes are so easy, I’m sure just a photo would even be enough! LOL!)  Anyway, I promise to get to it better.

Meanwhile, I think much of my time has been spent with my new business adventure with Stella & Dot.  It’s been so much fun but admittedly has stolen any spare time that I would use to blog in order to get the business up and running and help those on my team.  But, again, I’ll get it together shortly.  😛

So I wanted to share the opportunity to spread the word about the Stella & Dot Foundation.  My last post was for Ovarian Cancer Research.  Thank you EVERYONE who bought a bracelet and help raise over $54,000 for ovarian cancer research!!!  Now you can participate again in a broader spectrum.  100% of the proceeds for these bracelets and charms will be donated to the foundation and help fund organizations that help uplift women: Accion, BuildOn and GirlsInc.!!!  There are bracelets for ladies of all ages, big and small, and more importantly all with a big heart.

To shop and order online, please click here or go to my website and learn more about the jewelry, the business and the foundation.

Be Generous! Be Gorgeous! That’s What’s Up!

Ovarian Cancer Research Fund – Support This Weekend

In Family, For the Stilletos, Jewelry on July 27, 2012 at 7:00 AM

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States and is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women.  American Cancer Society estimates 22,280 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the United States in 2012 and about 15,500 women will die from the disease.

When ovarian cancer is detected and treated early, there is a 92%+ five year survival rate.  Unfortunately, many patients aren’t diagnosed until they’ve reached an advanced stage dropping their five year survival rate to less than 50%.

The good news is, with ongoing research, 50% of women are surviving longer than five years after diagnosis which is a vast improvement from 30 years ago when the survival rate was 10% to 20%.

The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund supports research:
• to find better tests that can diagnose ovarian cancer earlier and more precisely,
• to understand what causes ovarian cancer, and
• to develop improved treatments.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT THIS WEEKEND with a purchase from Stella & Dot

Generous and Gorgeous!  That’s What’s Up!
