Looking fabulous, trendy, and confident can still be achieved while undergoing the uphill battle with cancer. Before you start with your external appearance, it is necessary to dress your mind with positivity. The laws of attraction dictate that whatever energy you decide to give the universe is exactly what you will get in return. Telling yourself that you are strong enough to overcome this obstacle is already putting yourself at an advantage and in the frame of mind to win. Once your mind is fully cloaked with these thoughts, extend it to the exterior and start to dress like a survivor.

Let's be honest, there is no easy way to deal with cancer or completely hide the pain and struggle that comes with it, but you can look good trying and inspire others to not let any situation get them down.

One way to lift your spirits during treatment is to accessorise - "play dolly house" and change up your look with just a few additions. Channel your inner fashionista with vibrant head wraps by Epiphany Beyond Body, rouge from Gaelle and some sparkle from the Original Arm Candy.

Epiphany Beyond Body specialises in eccentric African print headwraps which were created with your hair care in mind. Each headwrap is lined with satin and is guaranteed to maintain the natural moisture of your hair which is important for persons who are growing their hair after experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy. This is an easy way to make your outfits pop with very little effort. Headwraps come in large for full coverage and medium for those who want to show off their new hair growth after overcoming cancer. For more information visit @theepiphany_beyondbody in Instagram or call 876-899-4055.

If you are a lover of make-up or someone who occasionally decides to gussy up, you will love the shades of matte pink lipstick from GaÎlle Cosmetics. This Jamaican cosmetics line ties any outfit together with bold hues ranging from deep burgundy to bubblegum pink. View their catalogue at @gaellecosmetics on Instagram.

The Original Arm Candy joins the mission to fight breast cancer by creating custom-made breast cancer bracelets that can be worn throughout the year. These trendy and ultra chic bracelets are best worn stacked on both hands. Even if you are not a jewellery fan you will not be able to resist mixing and matching these stylish treats from Original Arm Candy. For more information visit @theoriginalarmcandy on Instagram.
