Think Pink And Do Your Cheeky Checkups!

In honour of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and all those who've been touched by breast cancer in some way.... here's some lovely pink interiors and photos plus ideas for 'Cheeky Check-ups'!

Cheeky Check Ups: Here in Australia we have a great advertising campaign all about 'cheeky check ups'. A cheeky check up is a quick and easy way to give yourself a breast check at a time when you've got a few spare seconds to fill.

Here's one of the examples from You Tube...

The Hair Dryer Technique - 30 seconds (NB: there is cartoon nudity in this one):

And another...

Jam Toast - 30 seconds:

You can find out more at the Cheeky Check Up website. This site has great, simple, matter of fact info about Breast Cancer and its causes.

To take a Breast Cancer Screening Test and see how your chances of getting breast cancer rate, use this 'risk calculator tool' on the National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre website.

Ask yourself: 'When was the last time I did a 'Cheeky Check Up' or any type of breast check up?'

Which leads to: 'Do I do these check ups on a regular basis, or just every now and then?'

Because: Detecting anything amiss with your breasts is the first line of defence. You can't treat it if you don't know it's there. I'm very guilty of not checking myself.... time to create the habit.



P.S. Here's a brilliant post about pink and pink colour schemes over at Sensational Color.
