National Wear Red Day


Here in the States it is National Wear Red Day to kick off American Heart awareness month. In America, **Heart disease is the number one killer in Women ages 20 and over, killing one woman every minute**

I'm very proud to work for a company that is supporting the Go Red for Women campaign by taking $5 donations from their employees to wear jeans today (yes, my company does not believe in denim Fridays) and in exchange the money is donated to the Go Red for Women campaign.

I even remembered to wear my favorite red striped top and red lipstick to really support the cause.

(Lipstick - Ultra/Dolce and Gabbana)
Sorry if I look a little jaundiced here - stupid fluorescent overhead lighting! It's a good thing I am wearing red lipstick.

I haven't taken my health seriously until I became a Mom. I try to remember to wear sunscreen beneath moisturizers with SPF, I (try to) eat better, I exercise more and I have been more responsible seeing my physician, ob-gyn, dermatologist, optician and yes, dentist on a regular basis. Tedious and sometimes painful but I am willing to do what it takes to make sure I am here for my family.

Because I don't want to even think about missing out on activities like this with my little cupcake:
