This week Jodell of Black Cat Plus is the host of Fashion Flash. I love the way this site drills down to every question to arrive at the best answers. From the pros and cons of sheer hose to the best way to rock black denim, Black Cat Plus offers real time fashion help. And while you’re online I would check out Kari at Fabulous Over Forty. She recently uploaded an amazing video that demonstrated a home laser that has been shown to reduce wrinkles. At Fabulous Over Fifty, there is a great story on common items like perfume and cells phones that can drain your energy. And over the incredibly rainy Sunday, I browsed fashion advice from The Glam Gals at Fabulous After 40 before staring my fall shopping.
And when you’ve finished exploring fashion and beauty options, take a look at Cinch! by Cynthia Sass. While this best sellling diet book has the usual nutritional info and healthy recipes, it is its unique approach to the lifestyle habits that sabatoge many diets that earned this book a place on my shelves. For example, we all know that we should eat 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies a day– but rarely seem to manage more than 1-2. Sass, a registered dietitian, describes three different plans for getting in those anti-aging food choices. Its been so helpful to me to see these mealplans. I copied this info on two cards. One I put on the frig and the other I carry in my wallet. Now when I reach for something to eat I check the meal plans to steer me to the healthiest choices. Its been part of an adjustment in my relationship to food that’s helped me this year to drop from size 14 to size 8.
