My Favorite Things

There aren’t enough hours in the day. Who has time to run around looking for all of the things you need before, during and after treatment?! No worries, girl. I did all the internet research for you. So sit back, relax and check out these fab finds that are great for you, a friend or someone you love.


"Chest Confessions", by Christina Wilson

Christina Wilson is living proof that adversity can activate our greatest potential. This is the compelling true story of Christina Wilson, a 32 year-old woman who had a thriving career, social life, and happy marriage when she was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer.  Christina very candidly shares her journey and how she manages to find her own means of healing, both physically and emotionally. She shares how she rebuilds her body, life and successful businesses.  This is a beautiful coffee table book, and Christina is a dear friend of mine. 

I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did! Plus, a portion of the proceeds from this book are being used to build a mentor program for young women in need of support and information. Available for $29


GrandeLash MD Lash Serum

This award-winning lash enhancing serum infused with vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids to promote naturally longer, thicker-looking lashes in just four to six weeks, with full results in three months. It’s one of my faves for enhancing  short or thinning lashes, and it’s also ideal for restoring the appearance of brittle or damaged lashes.

GrandeLASH-MD is available in a three-month supply as well as a six-week starter supply. The six-week starter supply will yield initial results. To see full results, continue to use the formula for a full three months.

$65, available at Sephora.com


Pharaoun Cocktail Rings

This “Superpower” Cocktail Ring ($145) is the ultimate self-gift. As designer Sergio Andres Mendoza says, “Your ring should remind you of your favorite version of yourself.” Well, I couldn’t agree more! Don’t know your ring size? No problem! They send you this really cool ring sizer before you place your order…..faster than you can say “cocktail ring.”


Mantra Band

For only $25, this Mantra Band is such a wonderful reminder that you have the strength within you to do whatever you set your heart to. Beautiful girl, you are capable of anything..


"Dream" Hemp Infused Roller by AMI Wellness

I’ll tell you right now, this is the best $39 you’ll ever spend on a good night’s sleep!  This nightstand essential is a therapeutic blend of valerian root, hops humulus and full-spectrum hemp cannabinoids that will help relax your mind & recharge your body. Roll it on, drift off and wake up shining. Check with your doctor of course if you’re currently in treatment, but the next time someone asks what they can get you…tell them you need some “Dream” in your life!

after surgery

Ana Ono Intimates

Oh wow where do I begin? I met Ana Ono Intimates Founder Dana Donofree a few years ago at a Living Beyond Breast Cancer conference. It was love at first sight. Dana AND her amazing bras. She is truly a pioneer. Thank you Dana for making the most beautiful yet super functional and comfy bras that a girl could ask for! I just can’t wait to see what you’ll do next. This is my fave. The Gloria Bra. Why? It’s sexy. It’s comfortable. And there are no underwires. So there ya go.

Feeling Sexy After Breast Cancer. Let's Discuss.
before surgery

The Park Puff

So The ParkPuff™ is a lifesaver basically. Amazing to have with you in the car right after your surgery. Just fold and close The ParkPuff™ over the shoulder seatbelt strap to cushion either side of your chest, or open it to lay underneath to provide even more comfort after:

  • Lumpectomy
  • Mastectomy
  • Radiotherapy
  • Breast reconstruction
  • Port placement
  • Chest surgery
  • Heart surgery
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Abdominal surgery (lap belt)

Lip Gloss Heroes by SaltyGirl Beauty

You guys, when you meet sisters Sarah and Leah you will seriously want to hang with them. Sarah is a Triple Negative Breast Cancer thriver and her sis Leah is an oncology nurse. They couldn’t find a clean beauty brand that they loved, so they decided to create their own. Their newest addition is the Lip Gloss Heroes collection. Each fab color is named after an amazing woman. Plus they’re GORGEOUS and are made with ingredients that are totally good for you. Which is important because you’re putting this stuff right on your mouth…know what I mean? So whether you’re newly diagnosed, in treament or not….you need these in your cosmetic bag!

during treatment and beyond.....

Violets Are Blue Facial Serum

To say that your skin gets a little funky during chemo is well….an understatement, right? Cynthia Bestemann is my hero. This unique brand was born out of her own need for clean yet effective products. This serum is liquid gold! It’s perfect for tired, dry, and/or mature skin or any skin that needs a little love.  Cynthia has crafted the perfect blend of organic Evening Primrose oil, organic Argan oil, organic Rosehip oil, organic Jojoba, and a handful of organic essential oils such as Carrot Seed and Lavender in this easily absorbed serum. So basically, not only does it make your skin feel incredible but….it Smells. So. Good!!! Plus if you run your fingers through your hair after applying to your face, it gets rid of those flyaways and split ends. I’ll take two please!
