Help Whip Cancer!!!

Hey guys! Today I'm not only showing you a mani I love, but what inspired it. A friend of mine, Erica, or E2 as we call her, is a sales rep for Pampered Chef. Well for the month of May, yeah, I know I'm late, they are giving a dollar of every item, featured below, to The American Cancer Society's breast cancer awareness and early detection programs! The featured items are sooo freaking cute and all have pink and white zebra stripes on them. I of course had to get a few items. This post was meant to have been posted sooner but due to blogger and my computer failing, I'm a smidge late.

I am also sorry to say, that the Help Whip Cancer fundraiser is only open to US residents. Pampered Chef doesn't ship out of the US.

If you're Interested in ordering, you just have to go to her site here

Erica has also offered to do a giveaway for the 2 polishes I used for my mani!! If you purchase anything, from below, please send me an email letting me know what it was, so we can keep track for the giveaway.

These are the items -

Pink Zebra High Heel Cake Server $17.00 and 5 drawing entries
Pink Color Coated Paring Knife $13.00 and 4 drawing entries
Pink Zebra Ceramic Spreader $10.00 and 3 drawing entries
Pink Zebra Microfiber Towel $8.50 and 2 drawing entries

As you can see after each item, is the amount of entries you will be getting for the giveaway.

Now here is the mani I did to match :)
I used 2 coats of OPI Mod About You for the base and Konad special white polish for the stripes. The plate I used was the Bundle Monster 223 plate. I just love how this turned out. So subtle but still so much fun.

Hope you all are having a great week so far. I swear my bad luck hasn't been much better. My camping trip was canceled to due the fact it's going to rain all week and weekend, and our TV blew on Friday, GRRRR :(


  1. That is so wonderful, Chloe!

    I think I might purchase one of the items, but because I'm from France (the shipping is horribly expensive) and I don't really need the items... I was thinking about send the towel, somewhere in the USA...
    You people must have institutions/centers for people who are need. I don't know them, but maybe you or your friend could guide me/us though finding some people who'd really use the towel(for example!)

    PS: I love the mani you did! Just perfect!

  2. Amazing how your mani matches the items to a T. Love it :-) Hope you get a good luck spell soon!!

  3. hey erika! those pampered chef items look really nice and i just love the mani that you did to match! sorry to hear that your luck hasn't shifted yet, but it will. as someone once said "...and this too shall pass..." (yeah, i know, the question is WHEN? lol) BLESSINGS!

  4. Erica, that mani is simply stunning and to do this while not feeling well... you're amazing. Keep resting and you're gonna be up and at 'em in no time. Take Care! Oh and the cake cutter is calling my name - niiice.

    p.s. Activate the link so we can click on it. I'm going to cut and paste now, though. TTYS!

  5. Your timing is really weird. I just saw that cake server in my kitchen today. My mom bought it at a Pampered Chef party last month. Spooky!

    I love this mani. I think I'll have to copy it ;) (with credit, of course!). I love Mod Pink.

  6. Cute mani! Just wanted to let you know that I tagged you for the Kreativ Blogger Award!


  7. Hey!! Your mani is awesome! I am sporting the same one, but in bronze and black!!!
    Anyways.. this product can be sent to canada!! It has to be ordered on the canadian website though!!


    You can buy them here!!!!

  8. How pretty! : D

    Awwww, poor Erika! I hope everything turns for the better!

  9. Aww this is so sweet looking! I like it, and as usual, your stamping is perfect!

  10. Aww pretty and subtle! Like it a lot.

  11. Very nice .. Today should be "Pink Tuesday"!!!

  12. What a gorgeous nail look! Good on you for supporting a worthy cause. Also, we have Pampered Chef in Canada, too. Half of my kitchen is full of it. :)

  13. PLEASE do your research before donating any money to the crooks at the American Cancer Society OR getting mammograms for that matter (which can CAUSE cancer!!) Mercola.com and NaturalNews.com are two fantastic resources to discover the truth. Once you're informed, most likely you'll decide to keep your money and RUN like hell the other way. Trust me. Woman to woman; you girls have got to know!

  14. LOVE the mani!
    Ironically, I just ordered my bed sheets that I will use for my freshman year of college this fall, and they are exactly the same print.
    Animal print is my favorite! <3
    hope your weekend brightens up sweetie

  15. Where did you get your nail plate? It is awesome!!

  16. Love it. I am a breast cancer survivor so this holds a special place in my heart.
