• 3 Easy Tips to Kickstart Your Gratitude

    Thanksgiving… it’s not just about pilgrims and pie, although I do happen to know a real life pilgrim who also concocts incredible baked goods, explores the world, and is gloriously experienced in the art of gratitude. And she goes by the name of Dr. Therese Mascardo.

    Dr. Therese, a modern pilgrim if you will, is a living model of grace, generosity, and gratitude. I’m not kidding, she is the kind of “nice” that is both magnetic as well as shocking. If we lived in a fairy forest, Therese would be the beloved princess for whom the wildlife big and small forget their shyness or instinctual aggression. The larks would fishtail braid her hair and the flowers would unfurl their petals in unison to bask in the warmth of her radiant soul.

    So then, who better to share a little wisdom about giving thanks than this purple-haired pilgrim that I’m so blessed to call my friend?

  • No More Cancer, Dammit!

    No More Breast Cancer Fundraiser and Giveaway hosted by Lisa Tufano and THINK LIKE A BOSS LADY, benefiting METAvivor.com and research grants for metastatic stage IV breast cancer patients

    I have teamed up with several of my blogger boss ladies to bring you this wonderful opportunity to win fabulous prizes while helping to raise awareness for Stage 4 Breast Cancer:

    Blogger Hostesses for Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway and Fundraiser for METAvivor.org

    “If you know someone who has died from breast cancer, they died from metastatic breast cancer. Metastatic breast cancer, or stage 4 breast cancer, is the spread of breast cancer to non-adjacent parts of the body — most commonly to the bones, liver, lungs and/or brain. Many effective breast cancer treatments exist, but if the cancer metastasizes and spreads outside of the breast, there is no cure.” – METAvivor.org

    Did you know that many popular breast cancer fundraising movements give on average only 2% of their research funds to researching metastasis, despite the fact that 30% of patients diagnosed with earlier stage breast cancer will eventually develop stage 4 breast cancer and die? That’s why I encourage you to make your 2014 donation to METAvivor.org, which contributes 100% of your donation to funding research grants for metastatic breast cancer, the breast cancer that kills.

    You may enter our giveaway daily, and there are 3 separate ways to enter (must be US resident and 18+): 

     Make a donation to METAvivor.org. You may donate any dollar amount that you wish – even $1. Simply forward a copy of your donation confirmation to lisa@thinklikeabosslady.com to earn this entry.
