Sunday’s Elle Carnival for a Cause at Tote was super fun! Hosted by Nonita Karla, Archana Pillai & Amrit Rai (somehow they managed to put together a fabulous indoor/outdoor carnival in a matter of hours after it thundered and stormed all night!)  This by the way, is Elle’s annual fun & friendly way to spread awareness and raise money for breast cancer screening (especially for those who cannot afford it themselves.) Co-hosted by the admirable Devieka Bhojwani (a breast cancer survivor herself.) I was the emcee for the afternoon and had a great time. Between announcements I shopped, got my nails done by Scherezaad, my tarot read, my own Elle cover girl photo and a foot massage (not to mention several yummy vodka cocktails and a hotdog.) The most important lesson I learnt though was that early detection is key and in over 80% of all cases makes the cancer 100% curable. Spread the word peeps, regular check ups can save the lives of women everywhere, everyday.
