Kissing [infographic]

Posted: 14 Feb 2013 06:00 AM PST

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone is enjoying their day whether it be with their significant other, or with themselves. It’s funny because I never used to enjoy Valentine’s Day when I was in a relationship; I seem to enjoy it much more when I’m single. This obviously means that I love myself more than anyone else. But hey, at least I can find good in the holiday. The thing that will be going on in abundance today is kissing, and hand holding, but mostly the kissing.

Today’s infographic gives some facts on the history and mechanics of kissing. It’s kind of funny to think that there is so much information surrounding an activity that is so natural to most of us. With that being said, be sure to pucker up tomorrow! [via]

Go Red For Women Galleria Dallas

Go Red For Women Galleria Dallas

from WE ARE DALLAS  -- official blog of Galleria Dallas:

For the past ten years, the American Heart Association has declared February as Go Red For Women month in an effort to encourage women to gain awareness about heart disease and its risk factors for women.  The fashion industry jumped right in – not just because women’s health is an important cause, but because every woman can, and should, look great in this dynamite hue!
A simple stroll through Galleria Dallas shows how many designers and retailers have jumped in that red wagon, and we are all the beneficiaries.  Nothing makes a woman feel special like wearing a bold pop of color.  Whether you look best in a traditional fire engine red, an orangery coral or a wine-inspired garnet, going bold this season is just the trick to break through the grey weather we often experience in February.
I think every woman should own a great red dress, and this Side Swept Sheath Dress is so good for many body types.  The sheath styling makes it look so sophisticated, and the slight rushing at the side makes it more forgiving, and really defines the waistline.
If you have darker skin, often a deeper red is the right shade.  I love this playful red print from Nordstrom.  It’s a red that doesn't take itself so seriously!
Often, redheads are told they can’t wear red.  Well, Jessica Chastain proves them all wrong!  She rocked the red carpet for the SAG awards last weekend in this beautiful Alexander McQueen gown.  Fair-skinned beauties like her often do well with a red with orange or yellow undertones.
Not ready to go all red?  What about this fun blazer from H&M?  It would be great over jeans and a T, a little black dress or so many other options!
And remember, during Go Red month, you can make a difference when you wear red!  Macy’s is donating 10% of all sales of this adorable Kenzie dress to the American Heart Association!
So don’t be afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve all season when you sport the season’s boldest shade!
