National Grapefruit Month

Did you know that February is National Grapefruit Month? This powerful fruit packs a punch where it contains 100% of your daily Vitamin A and C. On top of that its vitamins can help boost the immune system during the winter months when colds and flu are at their peak. Additionally, Pink and Red grapefruit also contain Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, which may help prevent certain types of cancer, heart disease and stroke. To celebrate, we are sharing our favorite grapefruit-related food, fashion and beauty finds. Here's to your health and grapefruit-inspired fashions.

Shoes:

For shoes, we love the Carri - Grapefruit Heels from the Jessica Simpson collection on Heels.com.

Clothes: 

To celebrate the color grapefruit, we love the Cap-Sleeve Lace Dress from Garnet Hill that is also an airy and colorful dress for the summer. We also love the Parker Aubrey Dress Women's Dress Grapefruit from Gpm.com that has a super stylish hook-and-eye closure at the nape.

Beauty:

For beauty, gloss up your lips with the shiny L'Oreal Paris Colour Juice for a supple and soft pout.

Drinks:

For drinks, we are loving the Pink Grapefruit Champagne from Sidewalk Shoes that is simply recipe with champagne, sugar and grapefruit.
