Happy Friday!!! I can't believe that the first week of February is already over! The weeks are just flying by and pretty soon it will be my due date and a baby will be here! AHH! Crazy! While this week went by fast, I also felt that it was one of the most exhausting weeks that I've had in a while- I also noticed this was true for almost everyone around me. I am pretty sure it's because everyone exerted so much energy on Sunday yelling at the tv during the SuperBowl. Or maybe we all just got jinxed by Katy Perry's Left Shark and the week was doomed.
Well, hopefully since this nutty week is almost over, you're in a great mood! Today is "National Wear RED Day" and I'm happy to jump on board of this Go Red for Women movement in honor of raising awareness about fighting heart disease. Growing up with three sisters, attending an all-girls high school, and being a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, I always received educational information about women's issues, particularly health issues. I feel truly blessed to have had access to this information and couldn't help but become an ambassador for women's issues, especially if it means I get to wear my favorite color!
I am honored to partner with Macy's to support the fight against heart disease. Many people think it is just a man's disease, but it actually affects 1 in 3 women. Macy’s has been a national sponsor of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women since its inception in 2004. Together, with associates and customers, Macy’s has helped to raise over $50 million to support the cause.
When shopping at Macy’s between February 4 and February 9, simply wear red or buy a newly designed 2015 Red Dress pin for $2 to benefit Go Red For Women and get an extra 20% off select regular and all sale and clearance purchases storewide or 15% off fine and fashion jewelry, sale and clearance watches and the Home Store select regular and all sale and clearance purchases!!! How amazing is that?! Should I share it again? Wear red and save. Omg, I wish that this could happen every day since I wear red almost every day.
I was going through my closet and noticed that some of my favorite red dresses don't quite fit my bump, so I've opted to wear red lipstick to support the cause (I guess I'm supporting the cause every day)! If you know me, you know that I am a lipstick junkie. I have baskets full of my favorites and I always love trying new shades. This week, my three favorite lipsticks have been MAC Ruby Woo, MAC Russian Doll, and Chanel Lévres Scintillantes Glossime in 04 Spark (all available at Macy's). I achieved my perfect pout pictured above with Russian Doll! People always comment on my lipstick and say they can't pull it off. NOT TRUE! Lipstick, especially red, looks great on everyone! Yes, even you! It's the best thing ever- it can stand alone or finish a beauty look. Why not pick up a red lipstick from Macy's and support this great cause!!
I'm heading to Macy's this weekend to pick up a red dress for Valentine's Day (okay, I'm actually going so Jesse can get some new pieces for our upcoming travels, but we know what's going to happen), so text me if you're in the area and we can meet up!
i HOPE EVERYONE HAS AN AMAZING WEEKEND!! Please do me a favor, spread the word about the Go Red For Women campaign by wearing red, sharing this post, or by sporting a perfect red pout!
Here are two dresses I am loving from Macy's (one's maternity! <3)
Thank you to Macy's for partnering on this post.
