Below are some facts about breast cancer, the key to protecting yourself is education: get to know tha facts, and what you can do for prevention.

Some facts:

  • Every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • This year more than 200,000 new cases of breast cancer are expected in the U.S.
  • One woman in eight who lives to the age of 85 will develop breast cancer during her lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 40 and 55.
  • Seventy percent of all breast cancers are found through breast self-exams. Not all lumps are detectable by touch. Regular mammograms are highly recommended, along with monthly self-exams.
  • When breast cancer is found early, the five-year survival rate is 96%. This is good news! Over 2 million breast cancer survivors are alive in America today.

An early detection plan should include:

  • Clinical breast examinations every three years from ages 20 to 29, then every year thereafter.
  • Monthly breast self-examinations beginning at age 20. Look for any changes in your breasts.
  • Baseline mammogram by the age of 40.
  • Mammogram every one to two years for women 40 to 49, depending on previous findings.
  • A personal calendar to record your self-exams, mammograms, and doctor appointments.
  • A low-fat diet, regular exercise, and no smoking or drinking.

Of course there is much more information that every woman should get to know about. So to know more visit the National Breast Cancer Foundation website, learn more and pass this link on to friends and family.

Mimi's Curvy Tops

This has been a great summer for the plus size industry! With a lot of more great curvy fashion becoming available to full figured women, as well as a number of events and model searches being organized, the future for curvy fashion and plus size women worldwide looks bright and definitely stylish!

I have also been introduced to a number of new on-line plus size clothing stores this summer, including SWAK Designs, Belle Avenue and Mimi’s Curvy Corner. I love discovering new stores on-line! Besides the fact that I love shopping, love looking at different styles and designs, the more curvy stores there are on-line, the more choice is available to plus size women, and that is something that curvy ladies have always craved for: more choices, but more importantly more stylish and quality choices.

Mimi’s Curvy Corner is one of those budding on-line plus size clothing stores which has a bright future ahead. The selection offered at Mimis’ Curvy Corner is a beautiful and fresh one, which offers options for both day and night. All styles are very contemporary and the price tags are incredibly attractive.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be able to try out first hand some of the curvy clothing offered by Mimi’s Curvy Corner… and here is my take on the items:

1. Perfectly Plum Cross-Over Neck Top: The first things that struck me about this top was the color, it comes in a gorgeous purple tone, and since I have a soft spot for pinks and purples this top immediately made me smile. It is a casual top which I would choose to wear for a day out and about, and perhaps even for a casual coffee or movie in the evening. Paired up with either flats or kitten heels, this top can easily be worn up and down. It is incredibly comfortable and the V-neck give is a very sexy look. If you choose to wear this top for a casual evening out, it might be a good idea to match up some accessories to give it a complete different look; try matching up a pair of earrings and a nice necklace. This top features a cinched effect at both sides of the hips, and in my opinion this effect is the cherry on the cake for this top as it continues to define the curves and shape up the body. An essential ingredient in a curve flattering top.

2. Sexy Gold Empire Wait On/Off Shoulder Top: The next top which I took a look at is one which is more suited for wearing at a party or a night out with friends or your partner. It is a very cute brown top with gold detail. Again it comes in a plunging V-neckline, making it a very sexy number to wear! A ribbon details is found just under the breast line, joining up as a bow at the left hand side. This adds a gorgeous detail in my opinion and along with another great feature, the slightly cuffed sleeves, this is a top which will definitely make you stand out from the crowd. This tops can be worn both on shoulder and off the shoulder, for a sexier look.

3. Jet Black Cinched Bust Top With Lace Trim: The final top from Mimi’s Curvy Corner which I took a closer look at was a black formal top with lace trimmings. This top is perfect to be worn in a more formal setting, perfect for instance for a dinner party or even a work related evening event. The lace detail at the neckline gives this top a classy and chic look. The cinched bust, along with the lace trim, continues to give the top sexy and dramatic aura. Again this one proved to be very comfortable to wear.

Overall I was rather impressed with the selection of tops I took a look at from Mimi’s Curvy Corner. These particular ones showed that Mimi’s offers a selection ideal for any time of the day, or occasion. Furthermore it is obvious that these tops were created with the plus size figure in mind as they fit very well and enhance all the right curves! So I would definitely recommend you give Mimi’s Curvy Corner a closer look.

Demystifying Bras

I have been away on business (and pleasure) for the past couple of weeks, and this week has just been filled with catching up both at work and at home. Exhausted is such an understatement right now! But finally I get the chance to sit back and do some interesting (and fun) type of catching up – reading up on all the missed posts on my feed readers. I’ve missed quite a bit I must say… there has been some excellent posts lately.

A particular one which caught my eye was Glen’s post about 17 types of bras. I am very particular about my bras, and of course am aware that there are different types of bras. But having an actual list laid out in front of your is a completely different story! Bras for every occassion, personality, outfit… you name it, there’s bound to be a special bra made for it!

Save on Holiday Gifts

The holiday season is almost with us lades! Halloween is right around the corner, and it will not be long before Thanksgiving and Christmas are with us. Besides lots of fun, cheer, parties and good food, the holiday season brings with it a lot of expenses… but with a little care and shopping around we can find places where to purchase all the necessary gifts, whilst saving money.

One such place is, which is a one stop coupon deal and discount resource. Their focus is providing up to date coupon codes and promo deals to the online shopping community.

So you can make a wish list for all your family and friends this season, think of the gifts you want to give them, or yourself, and get them at a discount. CouponChief provides discounts for a variety of stores, including of course clothing stores. So if you’re looking for Old Navy discounts, or perhaps Nordstrom coupons, CouponChief is a site not to miss!
