Breast Cancer Awareness!

Since October is all about Breast Cancer Awareness I thought I'd make a post about how to do a self - examination to check for breast cancer! 

Shower Test:
  • Place right hand , palm flat, against the back of your head
  • With the fingertips of your left hand, press lightly, then firmly, against your entire right breast to feel for lumps
  • Switch hands and repeat to the other side, using your right hand to check your left breast.
Mirror Test:
  • Stand straight with hands on hips. Check in the mirror for any changes in breast texture, shape, size, nipple appearance, or unusual discharge.
Lying-down Test:
  • Lie down with a small pillow or folded towel under your left shoulder and left hand behind your head
  • Use your right hand to check your left breast and under armpit.
  • Move the pillow under right shoulder, switch arm positions and repeat the process using left hand to check right breast
You should repeat this self exam every month! Contact your doctor if you see any changes or abnormalities!

Free Carol's Daughter Sample!

So it turns out blogging on a tab wasn't as easy as I thought it'd be... So when I had some time I went and traded it in for an actual laptop. I actually ended up hating the Toshiba Thrive. It was really nice and pretty much the best that tabs had to offer.. But it was just a giant version of my phone and I didn't like it at all. And I really suggest you don't get it unless you like browsing on smart phones. Because when you go online they give you the mobile version of the page.

Okay so I haven't been keeping up with my blog and I feel terrible! Between work and technical difficulties.. But I'm for sure back now! (: And I'm going to give you guys a free sample of Carol's Daughter Macadamia Smoother! 

I hope you all enjoy this sample! (:
