It's RED HOT February!
Its going to be an amazing month around the Lair, folks. We have a line up that you just won't believe.
Along with all the usual wonderfulness of the Bandita's, one of the coolest things this month is that we're partnering with the American Heart Association to highlight the dangers of heart disease.
Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women, rather than breast cancer as most people would guess? Well, it is! So, to help all our wonderful Bandita Buddies and any of our male Bandita Buddies lady friends, we'll be giving a tip-a-day every day this month to help improve heart health. Some of these tips will get you moving, and others will give you something to think about.
So be sure to stick with us and check back every day, especially if your heart's acting up. Grins. In the meantime, check it out at:
Oh, and today's tip from the AHA: Rather than tempting your beloved with chocolates, consider a gift that has more permanence. Search for a poem that describes your feelings and write it on beautiful paper for a handmade Valentine.
(Although dark chocolate CAN be good for you....and if you look at the 14th you'll see that we're ALL about poems!)
We kick off the Fabulosity of February with the red-hot Jessica Anderson's return to the Lair.
