The ovarian butterfly clog is made in Sweden with genuine leather uppers and when you purchase 2 pairs you get 1 Pair FREE.

The Teal Toes Organization is bringing awareness to Ovarian Cancer by having everyone paint their toes teal for September. You can grab an entry sheet at their website for your nail salon today to participate.  According to Teal Toes, they are spreading awareness  "By painting your toenails teal, the ovarian cancer color.  By getting your friends to paint their toenails teal too, and then by talking with people when they ask about it, to make sure that they know the signs of this whispering killer."

According to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, approximately 75 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage after the cancer has spread beyond the ovary. With early detection the survival rate greatly improves to 93% but only 19% of the cases are diagnosed this early.

Get your teal ready today for September to spread awareness of this silent killer. Visit
