And, here’s a thought to protect that pedicure! According to the website, Bootie Pies are cozy boots with a collapsible front flap that exposes the toes while getting a pedicure. Bootie Pies look like fashionable UGGs and are made from high quality suede and leather s like coconut crème, chocolate and blackberry. www.bootiepies.com. The shorter boots (more like shoes) are $68, and the taller boots (at left) are about $88. Wear them with your gloves that flip down for a manicure and make a statement!

Back to our hearts — heart disease kills more women 25 and older than all cancers combined. Signs of a heart attack in women are often different than men, according to the American Heart Association. Sweating, pressure, nausea and jaw pain could be signs in addition to pressure in the chest, pain or discomfort in one or both arms, shortness of breath and lightheadedness. Don’t ignore pain in the back, neck or stomach.

Signs of a stroke from American Heart Association include: numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, confusion, trouble speaking or understanding, blurred vision in one or both eyes, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, or sudden severe headache.Take care, and get a checkup!

Plan now for your Feb. 1 wardrobe. It’s Wear Red Day — a day that promotes awareness of heart disease in men and women. The first Friday in February, established as Wear Red Day in 2003, added a special focus on women because heart disease still kills more women every year than all cancers combined.

In Erie, thanks to UPMC Hamot for the reminder to wear red. Check right here for all the events at UPMC Hamot for Feb. 1. From 9:30 to 2, you can get free screenings and $10 cholesterol and blood sugar testing. For more information, see the schedule of events here.
