Every month is considered pink month in the world of Pink the Town. But for the rest of the world, October equals pink month, which makes October one of our favourite months of the year. It’s a time to celebrate all that is pink and a time to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer. It’s also time to start thinking about Halloween costumes, another reason why we love October.
This edition of Pink Spotting includes new pink finds, breast cancer awareness products and some pink Halloween costumes in case you’re looking for some last minute ideas . Check out all of the details below and be sure to tag us on Instagram, @pinkthetown, with your own #PinkSpotting finds!

I have a little bit of a glitter nail polish obsession. So, when Avon’s new Stardust Nail Enamel arrived I couldn’t wait to test it out. If you’re also a fan of sparkly nails, you’ll know that it’s hard to find polish that really shows up the way you want it too. Some are too sparse and are better used as a top coat and some take about ten coats to show up. But then you come across some that perform exactly the way you hoped they would or even better and such was the case with new Avon Stardust.
The lineup comes in Cherry Dazzler, Crystallized Pink, Jewel Blue, Silver Crystals and Black Sequins. Personally, I love them all but my favourites would have to be the light pink and black. The Black Sequins look like a star covered sky, and the Crystallized Pink looks like pixie dust. You only need two coats and your nails are fully covered. I also find that the colour lasts quite a while without fading or chipping.
Check out the swatches below and let me know if this is a collection you’ll be checking out!

Next to Christmas, fall is my favourite time for decorating. The combination of Halloween and Thanksgiving make for so many options when it comes to decor. You can stick with the classics, orange pumpkins and leaves, or you can find ways to mix things up. Since orange and brown don’t really match with my decor, I opted for creating my own colours through a pumpkin DIY project to more closely compliment my home.
Check out the DIY below for creating a festive table setting and colouring pumpkins.
Do you have any special plans for this Thanksgiving weekend? I hope this post can help inspire your own fall decor ideas.

One of our favourite things about fall is definitely the fabulous selection of fall coats. There are so many great options and since you don’t have to worry about freezing cold weather or snow yet, you can make style the top priority.

With the start of any new season, we always take the opportunity to switch up our beauty look. One of the easiest ways to do this is with a new lip colour. Fall is all about the statement lip, so we’re taking a cue from some of our favourite celebs for inspiration. There’s three main categories when it comes to the bold lip for fall: a touch of pink, a touch of red or a touch of purple.We’ve put together a lineup for each category. Check them out below:
