Go Red For Women

2.08.2013

Did you know that it is Heart Health Awareness Month? Here are some facts about heart disease in women.

"Do you know what causes heart disease in women? What about the survival rate? Or whether women of all ethnicities share the same risk? The fact is: Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That’s approximately one woman every minute! But it doesn’t affect all women alike, and the warning signs for women aren’t the same in men. What’s more: These facts only begin to scratch the surface.


There are a several misconceptions about heart disease in women, and they could be putting you at risk. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health for this very reason. In this section, we’ll arm you with the facts and dispel some myths – because the truth can no longer be ignored."
In honor of this cause, I participated in National Wear Red Day! And what better way than with some red pants... and at night red lips! But that part isn't pictured.

 RED pants: Cotton On || Toms: Nordstrom || Black T: Sexy Modest || Sweater: Forever 21 || Crown Ring: Miss America || Bracelets: Miss America Tradeshow || Silver Belt: Thrifted

So get educated. Go exercise. Eat healthy. And be proactive about your heart health!

Love,
Deidre
