Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Favorite Pink Products

Recess is in the pink.

I have to admit that pink is one of my favorite colors because it’s so girly and yes…I’m a “girly” girl. Pink also happens to be the official color symbolizing breast cancer support and awareness. During the month of October, which is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many businesses and companies offer “pink” products to both show their support and provide monetary assistance to breast cancer foundations. So I’m tickled pink when I see that iconic ribbon on store shelves because it reminds me that people care and determined to find a cure for this terrible disease which mostly affects women.


In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the ladies of Recess are “in the pink” sharing our favorite pink products.
