Look Good & Feel Better w/ Cynful

Good morning world! This isn’t going to be my usual type of fashion post. Well…it is because of course I get to credit the awesomeness that I’m wearing, but this is about something far more important: BREASTS. That’s right; boobs, funbags, dirty pillows, baby feeders, fun for everyone, good old fashion BREASTESES!

Okay! Now that I’ve got your attention…let’s go over some facts about breast cancer (note: all of these facts were copied and pasted from http://www.breastcancer.org):

  • About 1 in 8 U.S. women — 12% — will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed, along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer (also known as carcinoma in situ). About 40,450 women are expected to die in 2016 from breast cancer, though there has been a decrease in death rates since 1989, with larger decreases in women under 50. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advancements, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.
  • For women in the United States, breast cancer death rates are higher than death rates for any other type of cancer, besides lung cancer.
  • Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2016, it’s estimated that just under 30% of cancers diagnosed in women will be breast cancers.
  • In women under 45, breast cancer is more common in African-American women than white women. Overall, African-American women are more likely to die of breast cancer. For Asian, Hispanic, and Native-American women, the risk of developing and dying from breast cancer is lower.
  • As of June 2016, there were more than 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This figure includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.
  • A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member who has been diagnosed with it.
  • About 5-10% of breast cancers are thought to be caused by inherited gene mutations (abnormal changes passed through families).
  • Mutations of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are the most common. Women with a BRCA1 mutation have, on average, a 55-65% risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetimes. For women with a BRCA2 mutation, the lifetime risk is 45%. An increased ovarian cancer risk is also associated with these genetic mutations.
  • The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older).

Conquering Chiari With Cynful

For my beautiful sister, Kaeko… ❤

September is Chiari Malformation Awareness Month.  And this disease is something that one of my personal heroes, Kaeko Freenote, has suffered from for an incredibly long time.

What is Chairi Malformation, you ask?  According to Mayo Clinic, Chiari (pronounced: kee-AH-ree) Malformation (also known as Arnold Chiari Malformation) is a condition in which brain tissue extends into your spinal canal. It occurs when part of your skull is abnormally small or misshapen, pressing on your brain and forcing it downward.”

There are many symptoms to Chiari Malformation including but not limited to: pain, headaches usually after sneezing or coughing, dizziness (balance issues) and coordination issues. The most common form is congenital; but all forms depending on symptoms and level of severity can be treated with either medication, surgery or a combination of the two. Some forms of Chiari don’t need treatment at all.

While the information on Chiari is vast, there’s still plenty being learned about this disease. Research is being done daily over at the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) among other places. I wish I could write more about this but without knowing more information, I’d be misinforming you and that is something I don’t want.  So…in an effort to pass the good information and raise awareness, I strongly encourage you to find out more about Chiari Malformation, how to detect it and what you should know by visiting www.conquerchiari.org.

In the meantime, wear purple in support of your friends and family who are living with this disease.  Rock the purple and conquer Chiari…together.

Much love and respect.

Love Letters from Byrd Island

Wandering the grid today brought me to an old friend’s sim: Lick Sim Design.  I love coming here.  This time the theme is Byrd Island.  Now … if you’ve got a thing about birds…I don’t recommend coming here. They’re EVERYWHERE!

 

 

It’s beautiful here. Lots of water and so freakin’ tranquil.  I couldn’t help but go up to the overlook to take a better look. When the sun kisses the air, the view from up here is amaaaazing.

2016-08-25_005

While I was up there though, I noticed a beautiful cottage in the distance and had to go check it out. Tired from my trek up the cliffs, I went to take a moment to rest my eyes at the desk inside; but to my surprise, stumbled upon the sweetest of love letters.

2016-08-25_008

“I can’t say how every time I ever put my arms around you I felt that I was home. Nor too many things. But we were always cheerful and jokers together.”

It appeared I had happened upon the original love letter from Ernest Hemingway to his love, Marlene Dietrich! Such a sweet love; so heartfelt…I wondered how she felt for him.  I dunno…I’d be totally twitterpated if I received something so sweet…oh well…

Yummies at Yumz!

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven’t been around in a couple of weeks. SL has been escaping me most definitely.  Add RL distractions and well, ya know. That and working on a new pose set for my pose store while trying to blog and yeah…looooots going on!  Enough chatter…on to the sale!

2016-08-17_001

I took myself on a mini-shopping spree this morning. Yaaaaaaaaaaaas girl, yaaaaaaaas! These four delicious looks are from Yumz, who is celebrating her 7-year anniversary!  Now here’s the kicker: I’m a little late to the game and the sale ends TOMORROW (August 18, 2016).  What I like about Yumz fashions is that she uses great textures.  And I love when she uses traditional patterns from like Aztec and Navajo cultures; soooo pretty!

Now some quick info:

The bikini tops w/ tassles are NOT available as fitted mesh for Maitreya. They’re available in 3 standard sizes as well as Slink (PHYS/HG) and Belleza.  The shorts included with the outfit are omega appliers.

The jackets are available for 5 standard mesh, Belleza, Slink and Maitreya. And I couldn’t think of anything better to pair them with than these sexy leather applier pants from Sn@tch! Lawd the way they hug the booty! RAWR

Anywho, these yummy items and many more are now available in the 7th Anniversary sale over at Yumz! Go check it out…you’re running out of time… shoooo!!!
