National Wear Red Day! 2/06/2015

Every year, our organization participates in the National Wear Red Day and I am proud to say that it’s my 3rd year to participate in this awareness on Heart Disease. In return you get to take home a red dress pin to spread this awareness.icon_dress

It’s not just a man’s disease. Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke. But we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.

When it comes to beating heart disease and stroke, change can be the cure. To save lives and raise awareness of this serious issue, the American Heart Association launched Go Red For Women. And the red dress has become the iconic symbol of our battle against heart disease and stroke in women.

National Wear Red Day® — the first Friday each February — is our special day to bring attention to this staggering fact. We encourage everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.

A Decade of Success

Since the first National Wear Red Day in 2003, we’ve made tremendous strides in the fight against heart disease and stroke in women. Through research and education to healthy lifestyle changes, we’re proud that:

  • Nearly 90% have made at least one healthy behavior change.
  • More than one-third has lost weight.
  • More than 50% have increased their exercise.
  • 6 out of 10 have changed their diets.
  • More than 40% have checked their cholesterol levels.
  • One third has talked with their doctors about developing heart health plans.
  • Today, nearly 300 fewer women die from heart disease and stroke each day
  • Death in women has decreased by more than 30 percent over the past 10 years.

Even before the hype of Rimmel products, I have been using them since then. I love their foundation and I also like the scent. I know some people doesn’t like face products with scents but I love it.

Aside from their foundation I also wanted to try the Rimmel Wake Me up Concealer even if I don’t use concealer that much but I heard this is a great product, so I hope this won’t disappoint me. I bought shades Very Fair/Light (#230) and Very Fair (#125) to see what shade fits my skin.

Disclaimer: I purchased these items in Walmart with my own money. Please feel free to leave your comments or feedback about the items I posted. I will be so happy to hear from you guys! CYBER HUG EVERYONE!!! 😘👭👏

Here we go again!

As I said on my previous blog.. If given the chance to change the term “Hump Day” then I would call it “Rest-Day Wednesday”.. No matter how I tried, my mind and body just dislike Wednesday.. BUT!!! I found something that kept me company throughout my busy day.. This may sound pathetic or insane but Hey! Whatever works.. Right??

I have this balloon in my cubicle for awhile now and today it’s about to retire.. It’s still floating but not as high as it was.. So I decided to draw a smiley face with a pretty pink blush to make me smile every time I glance at it and TAAADDAHHH!!! It worked! It even made my colleagues smile and laughed at the same time..
What’s important is….I made it through the day and now I am off and is heading my way home!!

My thought of the day- “Find ways that will cheer you up” in a crazy busy day! 😊👍😜
