♥ Did you know that heart disease is the number 1 killer of women?

♥ Did you know that it is bigger than all cancers combined?

♥ Did you know heart disease kills 1 woman every minute?

Scary, isn’t? I don’t mean to bring you down but I need you to be aware and educated. Irresistibly You isn’t just about fashion, looking good, and having confidence. It’s also about being healthy and taking care of your body.

All too often we equate heart disease with over worked, stressed out men. Nope. It’s us, ladies. This topic is near and dear to my heart as both sides of my family have battled heart disease. It’s something I worry about for my parents and myself. However, we don’t have to follow our gene pool. There are proactive measures we can take TODAY to stop this disease.

Watch this inspiring video from Jennie Garth about how heart disease has impacted her through the years.

February 4th, 2011 – National Wear Red Day
To raise awareness, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women– a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health. Today is National Wear Red Day and I hope you are in on the campaign to show your support!

Check out the Go Red For Women website to learn more about the movement and how you can get involved.  You can’t live an Irresistible life if you aren’t healthy. Educate yourself and take the proper measures to prevent heart disease.

Shop Go Red and Support the Cause
You can also help the cause by donating to the Heart Association or through my favorite pastime, shopping! Donations to Go Red For Women support efforts to fund breakthrough research and education by the American Heart Association on women and heart disease. I’ve selected my Irresistible Picks from the Shop Go Red site.
