This week Shawna of Female Fat Loss Over 40 is the host of Fashion Flash. I have to admit that I am intimidated by descriptions of celebrity fitness programs. The intensity, the pit crew of specialists to assist them, the amount of time and energy is overwhelming– and way above my pay scale. What I love about Shawna’s blog and DVD’s is that not only are the exercise programs so doable, but she shares real time success stories. When a fifty something schoolteacher works diligently to lose weight for a wedding, now that is something that inspires me. I can relate to the people who have worked her method and if they can do it, then I can too.
This summer I published the first No-Nonsense Beauty Newsletter. Each issue will offer new material not covered on the blog. This summer issue features new anti-aging studies and a review of six multi-tasking under eye concelaers.
Click the yellow box at to the right of this page and you will immeditely receive the first newsletter and automatically get new quarterly issues as they are published. Right now I am working on the fall issue which will include a review of different microdermabrasion devices including Clarisonic and DDF Revolve. All I will say now is that my skin feels very very clean. For the winter issue I will be roadtesting rich moisturizers that can stand up to cold, snowy weather. In the spring I plan a round-up of new ways to handle allergies.
I added two new addictive “over 40” sites to my blogroll. Over Fifty, Feeling 40 and Chic At Any Age, are warm, smart and filled with the kind of great fashion advice you might get from a good friend– if she also had a great sense of style. I love learning news ways to wear what I already have and these sites offer ideas I can actually use.
