Go Red For Women, Today is National Wear Red Day

screenshot016.jpg

Did you know that Feb. 1 is National Wear Red Day? Go Red for Women supports the fight against Heart Disease, the No. 1 killer of American women. I think a lot of women like myself spend most of their energy taking care of those around us and not focusing on things like our own heart health. Now we can be a part of the Go Red For Women movement to a 25% reduction in coronary heart disease and stroke risk by the year 2010.

National Wear Red Day has its own dress code. Wear your favorite red clothes or accessory – a red blouse, a red dress pin, a fabulous red handbag – put on red lipstick, or sport a red tie and red socks. Go red in your own fashion to show your support for women and the fight against heart disease.

Wear some Red today and throughout February to support the Go Red For Women Movement and we can reduce the numbers of mothers, sisters, daughters and friends lost to a disease that is often preventable! I will be carrying my fabulous new red patent leather handbag today I hope I see a lot of red while I am out and about.

Ashlee Simpson has been working her way through the hair color rainbow starting with blonde, then black and she was just seen Wednesday walking a red carpet with red hair. Which Ashlee color do you like best? I have to say I prefer the red it compliments her skin tone and she doesn’t look as ditzy.

Viewer Review: Three Holiday Cheers for Glitter

Thanks to Clare for the great review.

Three Holiday Cheers for Glitter!

The holidays are fantastic aren’t they? A time for cheer, good company, a valid excuse to go shopping, lots of hot chocolate with those tiny little marshmallows and more importantly, it’s the time of year a girl can wear as much glitter as she wants because the competition from holiday decorations will make her sparkle a little less. Don’t be scared of glitter, our fashionista predecessors from the 80s weren’t. Embrace it, enjoy it and always remember, the more the merrier!!!

Some of my faves this holiday season:

Make Up Forever Multi-Purpose Glitter
