It’s February. Stores are filled with heart shaped candy boxes and stuffed animals holding plush hearts declaring their love for you.
But did you know February is also Heart Health Month?
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women.
The American Heart Association urges us to wear red all month. To encourage conversations and education about this number one killer of our loved ones.
So I’ve gathered a few items in red from some of my favorite brands.
This Handkerchief Hem Wrap Dress from Banana Republic is a definite attention grabber. Perfect for dancing. Take the lady in your life out dancing regularly. It’s great cardio!
The Whitney is one of Michael Kors most popular bags. The red will add a pop of color to any outfit.
Kendra Scott has a wide variety of jewelry in different metals and stones. The Elisa Pendant in Ruby Red definitely makes a statement.
Pucker up for your loved one with Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry. It’ll keep your lips soft and kissable!
A healthy heart starts with a healthy diet. Frutta Bowls has lots of delicious options. During February they are offering the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bowl. A yummy way to show your love.
Heart shaped boxes of candy are nice. But a freshly baked, all natural Vegan bun from Cinnaholic is tastier and better for you.
This wreath made of buns is topped with cream cheese frosting, raspberries, graham crackers and raspberry jam!!
These are just a few ways to introduce red into your life this month. Let them start much needed conversations about our hearts. Encourage healthier lifestyles and talk about ways to make small changes. Show someone you love that you care about them and their health.
Sometimes, all you need is Love.
