Nipples. Perky pink (or brown) ones for breast cancer survivors
Please note this article includes images of nudity which may upset sensitive readers. All images are the property of Perky Pinks.
Let’s talk about the perky, pink wonders that hold unknown power and intrigue. Both women and men are born with them but let’s face it, male nipples are, some may say, kind of useless*. They’re not often used in foreplay, add little value to their sex appeal and are completely and utterly, infuriatingly useless in child rearing.
So just to be clear, we’re talking about female nipples here.
They’re a little like snowflakes in that no two are alike (even on the same woman, frustratingly) and no two women have the same feelings when looking at their own nipples. Hopefully, by the time you reach your thirties you have been blessed with either an adoring partner or nursing child to help you look on your own nipples tenderly, realising for yourself the importance of these tiny bits of flesh.
Nobody realises their importance more acutely than the *woman who has lost one or both her nipples with a mastectomy. And perhaps, to an extent, Cara du Plessis who hand makes realistic adhesive prosthetic silicone nipples.

Foodie or Faddy? Taste Testing online food markets.
We have entered an era of conscious food consumption where those who can afford to be picky are steering away from food that’s pumped up on hormones, battery bred and preserved for months.
The people (read upper middle class and hipsters) spoke and they wanted REAL FOOD. One or two little food markets emerged in amongst the trees where the truly health conscious walked amongst the fairies and got seasonal fruit and vegetables on Sundays. Hipsters got wind of it and suddenly these markets were springing up on rooftops, in nurseries and in commune backyards, selling an array of homemade products. Then the upper middle class and Noaks-followers heard about it from their hipster friends, pulled in with their SUVs and brought the dogs and kids along for the ride.
Naturally, it was time to evolve again.

Popular culture has seen an increased focus on healthy lifestyles and eating habits, but as new fast food chains keep opening up, it seems that this health conscious lifestyle is one reserved for mid and upper-level income groups. Those able to afford good quality meat, and organic, gluten-free products.
Although healthy eating habits certainly are harder to achieve on a lower income, Simone Tomaz from the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA[BF1] ), says that staying fit and healthy does not have to cost a lot of money in the form of expensive gym memberships and sports clubs.

Marilyn Monroe believed that with the right pair of shoes, a woman could conquer the world. Surely then, if you gave a woman the tools to take back her physical appearance after it had been marred by cancer treatment, she would be able to conquer the low self esteem it brings.

Rugby. Love it or hate it, it’s a sport that’s synonymous to South African culture for many. A culture of braaivleis, beer and dedicated supporters with bellies full of it.
But for some rugby players to whom it means more than just a favorite form of exercise or even a childhood dream of being a national player, the sport is notably lacking in support. Those are the rugby players who find independence and a new lease on life in wheelchair rugby – a mix of American football, basketball and ice hockey.
FNB You Can Help: Getting Girls' Stuff
Boys can be relentless at the best of times. But what about when you’re a teenage schoolgirl without sanitary products? The girls in the Bergnek community outside of Polokwane were dropping out of school due to the embarrassment and teasing they had to endure when having their periods. Keabetswe Keith Mosumane noticed this and decided to make GirlsStuff.Period part of his already incredible initiative – Bergnek Community Projects.
