PLEASE JOIN ME IN HONORING MY DEAR FRIEND KRISTEN
AND SUPPORT YOUNG WOMEN AFFECTED BY BREAST CANCER
As many of you know, the Young Survival Coalition is an organization near and dear to my heart. What many of you may not know is that young women can and do get breast cancer. This is something I learned the hard way. My close friend, Kristen Martinez, lost her 5 year battle with breast cancer at the very young age of 36. I miss her dearly. Kristen has inspired me since the first day I met her. She was full of love and courage and taught me that you must enjoy every moment life has to offer.
This year it would mean the world to me to have you all be part of the In Living Pink Gala. So please join me on May 8 to honor my dear friend Kristen Martinez. The night will include great music, open bar, delicious food, a fun crowd and the opportunity to support a great cause. Don’t miss it!
Visit In Living Pink to purchase your ticket. Purchase today – they are selling fast!
WHEN: Friday, May 8, 2015, 7-11PM
WHERE: Providence NYC, 311 W. 57th Street

Here is a little background information about the YSC, for those who are new to my blog!
Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier organization dedicated to young women with breast cancer. Founded by three young survivors, YSC began as a grassroots organization to advocate on behalf of all young women diagnosed with breast cancer to increase their length and quality of life. YSC provides free resources, connections and educational materials so young women with breast cancer feel supported, empowered and hopeful. YSC seeks to educate and influence the medical, research and legislative communities to address breast cancer in young women, and to ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. For more information, visit youngsurvival.org.

Six months ago Baby Dylan Reid arrived on this planet. He changed my life forever. Below is what I wore on my first family trip away with DJ Dylan Reid since he was born. I am almost back to me meaning pre-pregnancy weight. I still have more to lose but as they say "baby steps." I loved being pregnant and never was there a day I wasn't grateful for my big belly but it is nice to feel your body get back into your original state. What I love about this outfit is its vertical lines on the skirt which give a slender look to a fuller skirt. I absolutely love the hand brush paint look of the stripes too.
If we don't grow, we aren't really living.

One organization that I fully support is The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, better known as the ASPCA. Being an animal lover this organization is very close to my heart. Pets are family and deserve to be loved and cherished. I commend the ASPCA for making a difference and doing their best to end animal cruelty.
My favorite Boy Meets Girl® item is, without a doubt, the Coco Hoodie. It's perfection. I'm currently in school to become a certified personal trainer so I'm constantly in workout clothes! I love how I can slip on my Coco Hoodie and wear it as an adorable warm up jacket! The thumb holes are great and really keep everything in place while I'm gettin' my sweat on. It's so comfortable and fashionable; what more could you ask for?!
