It can be, but many people are making major mistakes when it comes to protecting themselves from the sun's dangerous UVA and UVB rays.

I've always adored the style-maven Iris Apfel. I've followed her flamboyant fashions and oversized iconic eyewear since I was in college in the '70s. As a student of textile and clothing design, it was a treat to see what avant-garde outfit and costume jewelry Iris was wearing on the fashion pages or around the streets of New York City.

May 10 kicks off National Women's Health Week, spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. As a registered nurse, I know the importance of making health a priority. And as a busy woman, I know how it can sometimes be challenging to do all the things we need to do to keep our health functioning at its peak performance.

May is National Bike Month, and Monday, May 11, marks the beginning of Bike to Work Week. The big day is Friday, May 15: Bike to Work Day. Cities, organizations and individuals all over the country will celebrate through organized events and solitary rides. If, like me, you're lucky enough to work from home, then biking to work isn't necessary. Conversely, if you live a long way from your workplace, biking to work may not be feasible.
