Wear Red

Ms. New Beauty is in love with her earth tones. She's all about the burnt oranges, rich chocolates, and warm golds. Anyone who's seen her living room can attest to that. But, today, she is into a much bolder color - Red - because today is World AIDS Day. Put on a your best red lipstick or lipgloss, wear a red shirt, or even better, pin on a red ribbon to support AIDS advocacy, treatment, and research. And, please, please, please, get tested. There are products that you can buy to support the fight against AIDS.

M-A-C Viva Glam

If you want to show your support through your cosmetics, there is no better choice than any of the M-A-C Viva Glam lipsticks and glosses. Launched in 1994, Viva Glam is a line of lip colors endorsed by various celebrities through the years including Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige and Pamela Anderson in the past to current spokeswomen Eve, Dita von Teese, and Lisa Marie Presley. Every cent of the proceeds on these products goes to the M-A-C AIDS Fund to support people living with AIDS.

Product (RED)

Created in part by Bono, (RED) raises money for The Global Fund to support women and children living with AIDS. I know you've seen the Gap Product (RED) tees, but there are so many more fabulous products for sale, including Red MOTO Razr cell phones, iPod Nano's, Converse sneakers, and my personal favorite, the Red American Express card. Even though Lord knows I don't need another credit card, every time you use the Red American Express, they donate 1% of your total spending to the Global Fund.

For more information on AIDS awareness, research, and treatment, visit American for AIDS Research or the government's newly launched site,

Get tested, protect yourself, stay safe, and don't forget that Ms. New Beauty told you!

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
