In Honor of Mom...

As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is a true time of reflection for me because it reminds me of my Mother.

My Mother passed away in 2003 and she was a Survivor of breast cancer. She had a radical mastectomy on her left side and then 9 years later it came back and she had a radical mastectomy on her right side.

Funny thing is she didn't die of breast cancer...she had a stroke.

In honor of my Mother, I will be giving away two full size Urban Botanic (8 oz) bottles of a lotion that I will design specifically for Breast Cancer Awareness month. The lotion will be called "Pink Hope".

All you have to do to enter is go to my website and take the personality test. Then, go to my UB Buzz Blog and post your personality results plus either a short story/tribute of someone that you know who is a breast cancer Survivor or a suggested combination for the "Pink Hope" fragrance. (or both) Please include an email address!

  • The first bottle will go to the person who posts with the most touching breast cancer Survivor comment.
  • The second bottle will go to the person that posts the winning scent combination for the "Pink Hope" fragrance.

If you would like to submit a scent combination, here are the scents to choose from:

FLORAL: Freesia, Gardenia, Geranium, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemon, Lilac, Lily, Linden Blossom, Lotus Flower, Mimosa, Plumeria, Rose, Violet, Wisteria

FRUITY Coconut, Frangipani, Grapefruit, Green Apple, Guava Fruit, Honeydew Melon, Lime, Mandarin, Naked , Passion Fruit, Peach Blossom, Pear, Pina Colada, Pomegranate, Raspberry, Strawberry, Vanilla
