A new headband for you and women everywhere.

I announced on Facebook and Twitter a few weeks ago that 50% of my sales with Princess Lasertron for the rest of the year will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to honor my friend Jordan’s mother Cora Delmundo who passed away in her battle with breast cancer this month. For the remaining days I decided I’d really rather donate more but I don’t really have the ability without more sales. So for the remainder of the year, I’ve also designed a pink felt flower headband for you and I’m donating ALL of the sales of this headband. One hundred percent. Here are a few photos of it below–Alice is modeling, but it does fit an adult. Smile.

I can send as many of these as I can sell, and I would love to make a huge donation to help those who are touched by the tragedy of breast cancer. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation offers hope for a cure in our lifetimes by funding leading medical centers who are doing the most innovative research about breast cancer and increasing awareness about breast health and screening. I also love that 91 cents of every dollar spent by the BCRF is used directly for research and awareness–they’re one of the most fiscally responsible charities in the country. I would love to see them get more support and I would love to send them a check on January 1 with your help.

If you want a headband, contact me with your PayPal e-mail address via e-mail (meg@princesslasertron.com) or comment and I will invoice you for $40, which includes the shipping cost. 100% of your payment will be donated to the amazing, fantastic, passionate people at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and all of those who breast cancer has affected. This headband is cute, it’s wool felt, and if there’s another color you’d rather have I’d be happy to make it! And please do also peruse the things I’m stocking right now in the Princess Lasertron store–50% of those sales will be donated as well for the remainder of 2012.

I hope it makes you feel good to see this felt headband on your dresser or hanging over a lampshade, wherever you keep your special headbands, and when you put it on I hope your heart feels big. When people compliment you when you wear it, I hope you get a chance to them about the important work the BCRF is committed to. I’m doing this to use my talents to form a link with women who feel moved like I do to fight cancer and fund this important research. I can use my gifts to create beauty, maybe inspire you, maybe just make you feel cute sometimes when you go out, and with your help we can send a check to make a big difference for all of the people who are fighting for a cure.

when you want to work as remotely as possible: traveling for business

A: Travel is important to me because it helps my morale. It recharges my spirit. Every month or two? I like to get away as often as I can…probably sometimes to the annoyance of my business partner and coworkers. It’s always important to me to find something to work on wherever I go–a reason to make it worth my while from a business perspective–but there are some places I go just to ONLY work.

OOTD: Office Hours

This summer instead of having our 4-year-old Alice go to her school’s summer program, Dave and I decided to get a nanny. Her name is Kylie and she’s been WONDERFUL over the past two months! I really wish we could keep her all year and just have Alice in this hybrid coparenting-learning-field tripping-coming to the office situation, but I’m not sure I’m up for all the coordination it would take. I’m definitely considering it because I’ve never seen Alice so engaged and happy–she plays all day, does art and science camps and activities all over town, and gets lots of time outside, which leads to nice early bedtimes. Smile. I love having her at work after 4 every day and all day on Fridays.

Letter from a reader: Changes and consistency

I am a long time reader of your blog and have seen it through its various incarnations. I wondered if you might find inspiration one day to discuss the changes, i.e., the changes in you. For example (and these are purely from memory, so I may very well be misremembering things or just plain getting things wrong):

A Long Day

1. Woke up and read Dril’s favstar to start my day off on the right foot. Dropped Alice off at her first day of summer art camp—sculpture making at the Joslyn Art Museum. 2. Quick shower and blow-dry before Rebecca Forsyth’s Vintage-Inspired Hairstyling salon training class. 3. Got my hair set with my good friend and former Princess Lasertron model Caitlin. 4. Snacks on Jonathan Adler dishes under beautiful boxes of hair color. 5-6. Rebecca setting and styling Caitlin’s hair. 7. The “after.”
