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.

Fifteen Favorite Things

1: Tavi Gevinson on the Nylon "It Girl" cover. We met her and did crafts together when Rookie came through Omaha on their tour, and she posted a picture of Alice’s pennant banner! Tavi called Alice a “rookie Rookie” and my heart melted. I also love the photos by Petra Collins and the intro by Hazel Cills. Writing for Rookie would be a dream. Let’s just say I’m a huge fan and this is a great article. 2: Our new Pounce Boots. I’ve been waiting for these bad boys since February! 3: My hair is growing out (No reason? I just stopped cutting it I guess?) and my go-to style has been to curl sections of my hair with a 1’’ iron and set them with these curl clips. It’s so easy.

Applejack Festival in Nebraska City, AKA Alice’s Best Weekend Ever

We left with a five pounds of freshly picked apples, a purse full of parade candy, worn-out carnival wristbands, and an angry sunburn to remember the trip by. Big thanks to the Nebraska City Tourism department and chamber of commerce for the amazing day at the Applejack Festival in Nebraska City. I grew up going…

The Entrepreneur Experience: An Interview with Lane Kennedy-Levy

I wanted to share this interview that just went up with Lane Kennedy Levy. It's a video interview about entrepreneurship, motherhood, the illusion of balance, regrets, TIPS, anxiety, mentors. I did the interview about 10 minutes after waking up from sleeping on the couch behind me all night. Cameos from my business partner Sarah and Hugo!

Personality Features

Never before has there been so much free advice at our fingertips for self-help in managing depression and anxiety, but so many years of trying to overcome the dumps by reading articles about gratitude and quotes about happiness and writing lists about small successes makes me more feel like I'm trying to dig myself out of quicksand. Thinking and meaning-making about my mood does nothing to improve my happiness. There's no logical solution to this because it's an unreasonable problem.

90-Minute Keynote

Posing a few questions to fellow speakers, fellow audience members (current and former), and fellow easily distracted people. Next month I'm presenting a 90-minute keynote address at a conference (subject: new-media marketing/youth markets) and I am terrified. Looking to my friends for a little guidance and reassurance on this.
