This week Staness of Menopause Makeover is hosting Fashion Flash. Athough menopause is in my rearview mirror, I love the health and fitness info on this comprehensive site.

Her new book from Harlequin, coming out in the spring, will be a comprehensive look at our health isues and solutions. She has interviewed dozrns og top experts in a wide range of fields to drill down to the most up to date data and options. Its so good Its going to be my gift book of the year.

And quite honestly, I did not want to spend two years with a mouthful of metal braces.

This week the fabuous Kari of Fabulous Over 40 is hosting Fashion Flash. I treasure people who have taken the time to drill down into a subject and then share what they have found– and Kari is one of those special people. She has a keen eye and a great sense of what is new and good in cosmetics and skin care. She has introduced me to listick colors I would never have tried on my own and her mscara recommendations never fail. I never go to the cosmetics counter without printouts from Fab Over 40.
