While this Fashionista isn't wearing a bold or edgy outfit, her casual yet classy look is a respectful outfit for the chilly season. A military-inspired jacket paired with a cashmere scarf wrapped ever so tightly around her neck is going to keep her warm for sure. She is still bearing all (her ankles, that is). Sperry Top-Siders and socks just seem sinful, so suck it up while there's no snow and refuse to succumb to the sock. While I have seen the Sperry winter boots, I'm not a big fan of them. Finish off any outfit with a cheeky bright pink pout. I hope you have all been keeping an eye on The Andy Warhol inspired make up line by NARS at Sephora. With Christmas and New Years soon creeping up, you Fashionistas will be in need of some holiday glam. What better way to commemorate a man who came up with aphorisms like, “I’ve never met a person I couldn’t call a beauty”? Why can't all men say lines like this to us?
Those red Christmas bows have started to make an appearance but I propose a different type of red to get you going. Let's paint the town red…with blood. No, Twilight hasn't gone to my head, I'm addressing the wonderful good samaritan act of donating blood. So which one are you — A, B, AB or special universal receiver O? Whatever your blood type may be, there are plenty of Canadians who will benefit from this simple yet life saving act. Unless you've been informed about the benefits of giving blood, I'm sure most people wouldn't think about passing along one of the most vital organs to a complete stranger. But it's time to get informed. While December is coming up and Christmas festivities are commencing, there is a sad reality that December is a high car accident month. Winter roads are very dangerous in Canada and there is a higher need for blood donations. Blood that is donated is given to operations such as hip surgery, cancer treatment, cardiovascular surgery, leukemia and internal bleeding which are all serious health conditions that many Canadians face. One hour of your time can save a person's life! The Canadian Blood Service is happy to see all patients over the age of 17 that have a stable level of iron and are in good health. Visit their website to book an appointment at one of their many clinics. Get going on your “goodwill to all mankind.”
