Pink & Roll*






.
.... Cashmere Tissue rolls out Toilet Paper Couture* for Breast Cancer Month in Toronto, Canada! Top and emerging designers draped-shaped rolls & rollsss...of toilet paper into fabulous pink-and-white creations as part The Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Some of you might know that my dear sister is a breast cancer survivor...Thank God she is doing well now, amen!! Well as usual, the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close and the pink ribbons and products you see in the stores will fade away and be quickly replaced with the usual reds & greens for the coming Christmas season, which in my humble opinion seems to get earlier & earlier each year no?! ~Should just remind ourselves that even after all ‘the pink ribbon-ness’ has disappeared, unfortunately breast cancer has not. ~Let's hope we'd find a cure in our life time... ~XOXO*

I can't believe these frothy lovelies were made from toilet tissue paper!! I had to read that twice! Super fantastic cause.

As for Christmas - yes, Sydney is in full tinsel, red, green and gold mode!!! It actually started in late September. I'm pretty sure it didn't start that early last year...

Hope your week is going swimmingly! XX

Great creations for a great cause. Has me thinking of my old prom gown ( which I still love) and delicious cupcakes. I'm so happy your sister is doing well and I will say a prayer that she continues to do so for at least the next 150 years :)
