This October make sure you do your bit to support breast cancer care with one of these Hip and Healthy suggestions. 

Wear It
Show your support with a Fashion Targets Breast Cancer specially designed limited edition 24 ct Gold Chakra bracelet by Daisy. Not that healthy, maybe, but totally hip! £88 www.my-wardrobe.com

Spa It
Elemis have released a Think Pink Beauty Kit to show it’s support for Breast Cancer Care (they have just donated £10k to the charity). Containing a pink version of the iconic Pro Collagen Marine Cream, the Pro Collagen Lifting Treatment Neck and Bust cream and Quiet Mind Relaxing Bath Elixir, the beauty kit plus a bath = the best way to unwind after a busy day. £32.50 www.timetospa.co.uk

Burn It
Get fit and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Where do I sign up, I hear you say! On 30th September from 1-4pm you could join hundreds of men and women on a fun and challenging dance work-out in London’s Hyde Park. But there is a requirement – if you are not wearing pink then you’re not getting in. The three hour dance-athon includes a bit of Zumba and some dance-floor classics that will get your heart pumping. £17 www.pinkaerobics.com

Love It
Uggs may not be the height of fashion anymore (there was a day when you could wear them to an interview and they would give you a gold star) but they’re still lovely and cosy and worth every penny when the winter sets in. These special edition Classic Short Uggs in pink are all you need when, baby, it’s cold outside… £165 www.uggaustralia.co.uk

Swim It
Beach chic and breast cancer research supportive, Australian swimwear brand, Seafolly, has joined forces with Fashion Targets Breast Cancer just like Daisy (see above). For a limited time they are donating 25% of sale prices to the established charity. We don’t need any more excuses to buy one of their stylish suits. No siree. www.fashiontargetsbreastcancer.org.au
