Now that summer is finally here, I am so excited to be hosting the first all summer theme Fashion Flash. Our bloggers have drilled down into their topics to share their experiences and skills. In addition to blue skies and sandy beaches, summer brings heat and humidity that affects skin and hair in ways that can last through winter. Summer also changes diets and nutritional needs. Digestion slows down and our need for water, both inside and out, increases as the thermometer rises. The Fashion Flash bloggers have got you covered:
