Wear Red Day

red-dayGO RED on February 5th, National Wear Red Day!

The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement is helping women fight heart disease with passion and positive action. Join with thousands of women, companies and organizations, and cities across America to help the American Heart Association support ongoing research and education about women and heart disease.

The more thoughtfully you protect your heart, starting as early as your 20s, the less likely you’ll face the life-threatening challenges posed by cardiovascular disease. No matter what your age or where you feel you are in your life, the best time to take action and get healthy is always right now.

From jogging with your friends, to swapping healthy recipes, to keeping up with loved ones and learning your family history, your heart health depends on a life-long commitment. As always, the first way for you, as a woman, to Go Red is to take good care of yourself every day. Because when you do, your life can be as beautiful as you are yourself!

To Wear red this heart-centered month, try the following items:

      I’ve also learned that in an effort to help, Np2 Nail Perfection is donating 10% of all sales of red nail polish to the American Heart Association.

      Np2 Nail Perfection has a durable, chip-resistant color base coat paired with an express clear top coat in a 2-in-1 bottle! The clear protein nail treatment top coat provides long lasting wear and healthy nails.

    2. Its a great idea, draws a bit more attention then the little ribbon.

      Although a serious subject a bit more fun wearing Red Lingerie. It also gets the Heart pumping so all round doing a good job at the same time promoting Heart and Health awareness.
