Aside from the start of Pumpkin Spice Latte season, October is also an important time in fall as it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Whether the disease has affected your life or not, now’s the time to get informed and help fight for the cure.
Beauty and fashion brands these days are also jumping in to lend a hand, creating products that give back and support BCA research.
