Who needs a reason to shop? Especially when it's for a good cause.  So here are four fashionable ways to help raise awareness and benefit breast cancer research.

Fergie Hope shoe, $45
1. HauteLook and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation are hosting a Pink Weekend Sale Sept. 30 to Oct. 2.  Items on sale range from lip gloss and a flat iron to designer jewelry and handbags.

Fergie's Hope shoe ($45; half its original retail price) will be available during the QVC presents "FFANY Shoes on Sale" event on Oct. 15th.  All the net proceeds of the Hope shoe -- and the 100,000-plus pairs of shoes donated by footwear companies to QVC -- go to breast cancer research.  To date "FFANY Shoes on Sale" has sold more than one million pairs of shoes and donated more than $32.5 million in net proceeds to breast cancer research.

Lash out against breast cancer with RevitaLash (check website for pricing).  The product was created by an ophthalmologist after his wife's eyelashes were devastated by chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer.  RevitaLash's parent company, Athena Cosmetics, has donated $10,000 to support forward-looking breast cancer research projects.

  1. I love Fergie's pink shoes. I could not believe that the shoes cost for only $45. It's a great idea to donate some of the proceeds to breast cancer research.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t

Change Your Diet to Reduce Stress: 3 Easy Dietary Tips for Women

April is Stress Awareness Month .  But strategies to reduce and manage stress are welcome any time of the year.   Studies show that women are more likely  than  men to report high levels of stress, and for African American women  chronic or daily stress is even more problematic.  While we tend to think of approaching stress management from an emotional wellbeing and physical health standpoint, we don't often associate making  dietary  changes with reducing stress and anxiety.   While scheduling an appointment with your  primary  care doctor and seeking help  from a therapist or spiritual advisor may still be necessary to help address the underlying reasons for why you're feeling stressed and the degree to which your  stress  affects your life, here are a few food for thought tips from  Constance Brown-Riggs, MSEd, RDN, CDCES, CDN, nutrition consultant and author Diabetes Guide to Enjoying Foods of the World .  Swap your  morning  coffee with a cup of warm tea .   “The key to
