My computer has been on the fritz for the past couple of weeks but after countless visits to Best Buy and interactions with the Geek Squad, we’re finally back in business! Computer issues make me feel so helpless.
A couple weeks ago, my friend Sarah and I attended the Real Men Wear Pink Fashion Show presented by Saks Fifth Avenue. The store was closed to the public and proceeds benefitted MD Anderson Cancer Center here in Orlando. The event featured food and drink stations, samples from various Saks beauty counters and a fashion show involving local celebrities.
We had a great time learning about different fragrances and make-ups, and we indulged in quite a bit of yummy foods.

Wild mushroom tart from Hyatt Catering & Events
Seafood paella and baklava from Taverna Opa
Pumpkin cupcake from Cakes by Design
While the food was wonderful, the highlight of the evening was the fashion show. In addition to local celebrities, professional models and MD Anderson cancer doctors modeled Saks’ latest lines. It was great seeing the cancer doctors on stage. They are true heroes.

Other celebrity models included Sheriff Jerry Demmings, Orange County Commissioner Ted Edwards and SunTrust CEO David Fuller. The store was also open so you could do some shopping during the event.
The event was very well done and it was empowering to see so many people showing their support to raise awareness for breast cancer. Even though awareness seems to peak in October, it’s an important cause year round.
I cannot believe we’re already in November, which means it’s less than one month until I’m married! Every day seems to be filled with wedding-related tasks, and I know it will be here before I know it.
What are you most looking forward to in November? Yesterday we celebrated Kevin’s birthday and next weekend is my bridal shower. It’s going to be a whirlwind month!
