Happy Halloween! :)  My favorite part about Halloween is the candy, but I have a bit of a sugar tooth when it comes to candy bars that needs to be indulged once or twice a year… and Halloween is a good excuse to do so!  (I love Snickers, mmm!)  If you’ve missed it, I’m not dressing up this year–in fact, I haven’t done so for ten years now–but I am dressing up my dog, which is way more entertaining!

I would love, however, to invite Temptalia readers to show off their fun Halloween makeup, because I am sure there are plenty of you going out in full costume and we’d all love to see!  (And perhaps, get a little inspiration for next year!)

  • Three (3) high quality images minimum
  • Pictures must be at least 500 pixels wide
  • You can send me the original file to edit

Breast Cancer Awareness ’09 Fundraiser: The Final Stretch

Breast Cancer Awareness ’09 Fundraiser:  The Final Stretch

For every cent that Temptalia readers raise between October 25th and October 31st, Temptalia will match total reader contributions up to $500. This means if readers donate $500, we’ll match those donations with $500 ourselves, and we’ll have raised a total of $1,000 together!

Every bit counts, so if you can only donate fifty cents, that’s fifty cents needed to help further the research efforts of the Breast Cancer Research Fund (our chosen charity). As of the publishing of this post, we have raised $826 towards our goal–so let’s work together and through matching, we can make our goal!  We’ll be matching contributions until it reaches $1,326 in reader contributions.  (But don’t let that stop you if you want to donate!)

Don’t forget — for every $5 you donate, you get a chance to win one of eight Pink-themed prizes. Read about the details here.
