This week the host of Fashion Flash is Kari of Fab Over 40. This constantly updated site has become my go-to spot for all things beauty. In recent weeks she has profiled five new delicious lingerie brands, a new long lasting lipstick with vitamins and without parabens, and a honey bath scrub from Laura Mercier. I have to admit I want them all.
I often have problems with celebrity beauty tips. When asked how they maintain a perfect body they claim a) they never diet, b) drink a gallon of water a day or c) they inherrited their goods looks. Seriously?
By contrast, Beth Chamberlin, star of the late, great Guiding Light, not only honestly admits her body problems, she shares her real diet and fitness strategies. Beth and her husband, Dr Peter Roy developed a popular Kettlebell program that is available on her website. Now she is going one step further to create The Woman’s Fitness Empowerment Project to produce a series of workout DVD’s that focus on strength, flexibility and cardio. But what is really cool is that Beth and Peter are using Indiegogo to crowdsource funding.
Here’s how it works: There are a series of option levels you can choose from. It starts at ” I’ll Bite” which includes volume I of her new DVD; ” Oh Yeah, I’m Ready“ offers volume 1 and 2 of the new exercise series, and “ I want a New Me which gets you both DVD’s and a copy of the popular book Perfect Body Made Simple by Dr Peter Roy”. My favorite is “Make Me a Goddess” which includes all of the above plus a personalized meal plan and a one-on one chat with Beth to motivate you to make it happen.
I first worked with Beth when a publisher asked me to package a romance novel that would be part of the plot line on Guiding Light. Beth wrote that book and, Lorelei’s Diary, was a great success. It was amazing to see the book on a TV screen as well as in the local Barnes and Noble. Beth is passionate about sharing her nutritional and fitness experiences and her enthusiasm is contagious.
