The Muse Thinks Pink: Giveaways and Babblings

Hi Guys.

Happy Monday!  Hope Everyone had a super weekend and are nearly if not fully awake today.   I’d say I’m zombi-fied after a long weekend of partying extra hard, Halloween, gotta love it.

I wanted to take a moment out to thank each of you for joining in by donating this month for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I’d also like to thank each of you for commenting or posting a story about your experience with Breast Cancer.

Although It’s November 2nd today and October is over I’d like to take a second out to give you a chance, if you haven’t already, to enter into the giveaways I currently have active.  Tomorrow morning winners will be alerted via e-mail so you still have time to enter if you haven’t done so already.

With the help of some I managed to raise $71 dollars plus $200 of my own funds which will donated to the Breast Cancer Research Fund.  That’s a total of $271 dollars.  I hope I can perhaps surpass that and head for $300 or $350 so please if possible a donation of $1 to $2 would be greatly appreciated as it is going to a worthy cause.

Also your donation of $1 counts as a single entry into some of my great giveaways that are ongoing now. Each $1 gets you one entry, $2 will get you two, and so on and so forth.

Korres for the Cure contains an array of “pink” products from Korres which are valued at over $50.

Smashbox Pout Lipstick is also a giveaway for a limited edition Smashbox Lipstick made especially for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

And finally an Estee Lauder Elizabeth Hurley Lip Set is being given away as well which contains an array of great items from Estee Lauder.

Please check through each giveaway separately as some are open to non-US readers which gives you a chance to win even if you live in Europe, Asia, or elsewhere.

Since I got so many comments on some of the giveaways I didn’t reply to each one personally but I did want to address each of you in this post and offer up a great big thanks for joining in during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Each of us can make a difference in fighting this disease until a cure is found.

The Muse Thinks Pink: Limited Edition Clarisonic Plus Sonic Skin Cleansing System

iStock 000010431255XSmall

When I first purchased my Clarisonic it was the pink version available for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink has now become a standard color of the Clarisonic due to it’s overwhelming popularity…seriously what girl doesn’t adore pink? It was only a matter of time that they adapted this shade and kept it on as a normal color rather than an LE.

Clarisonic

This year, the new limited edition Clarisonic Plus is a custom design developed to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The design is truly gorgeous and unique and not all pink in theme. Made up of a swirly floral design in a richer deep pink this new brush is available for a limited time for $250. A whopping 50% of the profits from the sales of the brush will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. That’s incredibly generous of Clarisonic!

The kit includes:

  • LE Clarisonic Plus Brush
  • LE Universal Charge Cradle
  • 1 Sensitive Brush Head
  • 1 Body Brush Head
  • 1 oz trail sizes of Refreshing Gel Cleanser, Gentle Hydro Cleanser, and Nourishing Care Cleanser
  • 2 oz Trial Size Refining Skin Polish

If purchased through Clarisonic a free gift and shipping is included.

As you know the Muse is currently holding a few contests for Breast Cancer Awareness this month and also collecting small (or large) donations from readers. Every little bit helps in bringing awareness to this disease. I hope you’ll take time to read some past “pink” posts and join in some of the giveaways being held here. $200 of my own personal funds will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation at the end of the month.

Visit www.clarisonic.com for further information on the LE Clarisonic Brush. If you’re thinking of indulging in the brush why not purchase this one and support a worthy cause.

The Muse hopes while you’re busy shopping away at Sephora you might consider some “pink” options.  As you know I’m building awareness, donating funds, raising money, and thinking pink this entire month.  As you shop keep your eyes on items that are donating to Breast Cancer Awareness as many brands donate a portion of the sale to charity.

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist is one such item taking a stand on Breast Cancer this month with a limited edition bottle. This month Donna Karan will make a $15,000 donation to The Breast Cancer Research Fund in connections with their limited edition fragrance bottle.  The bottle is 3.4oz and features the gorgeous, comforting scent of Cashmere Mist with a tiny pink ribbon embellishing the bottle reminding us that DK is thinking pink.  Each eau de parfum spray is $90.

The Muse Thinks Pink: Korres for the Cure Giveaway

iStock 000010431255XSmall

Hey guys!

The Muse had a rather busy day at work today so I’m busy typing this up at lunch and will have it go live late tonight. Happy Weekend…it’s only 12 but I’m gearing up for my weekend, can barely wait. What are you up to this weekend? I’m heading to Skull Island with friends, yea as if I don’t have enough zombies in my life. Gonna get some apple and pumpkin picking in too! Plus I’m dying to see Where the Wild Things Are, prob see that tonight, anyone wanting to see it? Comic Con totally went bust on me…that’s a long story…and dramas, first year I’m not going but meh other things to do.

Anyway!

More important things to discuss….

As you know I’m Thinking Pink for the entire month of October to bring awareness to Breast Cancer and how this disease is more common than most of you realize.  In my fight for the cure I’m donating $200 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

I’m not the only one donating funds and time to Breast Cancer this month.  One of my very favorite brands, Korres, has also joined in the fight for a cure and has some incredible “pink” offerings on their site to raise both awareness and funds for their charity of choice.   A few days ago I told you all about the Korres Lip Kits for the Cure.  These are a mere $19.50, include three fab Korres products, and 10% of the proceeds goes to National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.  As if that wasn’t enough Korres is deducting 20% Off all it’s “pink” products in October by using promo code GOPINK.

Shop Pink with Korres by visiting  www.korresusa.com

Korres has been very generous to Musings and sent along a package full of love and pink products to give away to readers.   This prize package includes a total of eight Korres products and will be given away at the end of the month.

To enter to win you can do a few things.

Follow me on Twitter.

Stop by, say hi, chat with me.  I don’t bite.   I procrastinate daily on Twitter so it’s a rather awesome way to get some one on one time with me. It’s particularly an awesome tool when I’m not answering emails for months at a time (my inbox is ridiculously packed).

Following me on Twitter gives you a single random chance to win the prize package.

Secondly, go ahead and comment. Tell me what the weather is like on your side of the planet, tell me your experiences with Breast Cancer, heck tell me what your fav Korres products are…anything, everything, chat it here and you’ll be randomly entered one more time to win.

And lastly for every $1 you donate using my chip in widget you’ll have additional chances to win. Two chances by using the above methods and $1 gets you a third chance, $2 gets you a fourth chance, and so on and so fourth. Proceeds with be donated to my charity at the end of the month.
