This week Kari of Fab Over 40 is the host of Fashion Flash and she has an info packed post on the European Waxing Centers. One has opened in my hood, but past scary waxing experiences has made me keep my distance. Her explanation of their waxing techniques convinced me to make an appointment. Beach season is right around the corner and hair removal is no longer an option. Kari also introduced me to an exquisite new line of products called Naked Princess that are perfect for Mother’s Day. Beautifully designed and packaged they are designed to celebrate being a women. Nice.
And I am so proud of two Fashion Flash friends– Jojami Tyler of Fab After 40 is featured in a full page ad in More magazine. She is an Aveeno Brand Ambassador for their new Active Naturals campaign to award eight, $10,000 grants to people in the community who are making a beautiful difference in the lives of their friends and neighbors.

And before you spend a day in the sun, be sure to pick up the May issue of Redbook and read about Dr Ellen Marmur’s own experience with skin cancer. She shares her before and after pix of skin cancer surgery and it is a vivid reminder to wear sunscreen each and every day. Dr Marmur is not only a dermatologist, she is vice chair of cosmetic and dermatologic surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center where she is THE expert on skin cancer surgery. Her story has a happy ending and her scar is now virtually invisible. But her message is clear and strong– WEAR SUNSCREEN every day throughout the year. Dr Marmur and her whole family also wears hats and sun protective clothing to lower skin skin cancer risk. Reading her story, I think you will be inspired to crank up your sun protection strategies.
