This week Josephine of award winning Chic At Any Age is hosting Fashion Flash. She is a fashion professional that shares real life style advice. Most fashion layouts ignore the impact of weather on style. They offer chiffon skirts in winter or a chunky cashmere tank top in summer. And they seem to forget that suede stilettos and rain are a terrible combo. Not Chic At Any Age. For example this month she did an amazing spread on style during a cold windy holiday in Wales. With just a few key items including a blue wool dress, boots and tights, she was warm,comfortable and beautiful. Subscribe to her wonderful site to get all her great advice.
Over the weekend, I started getting emails from readers asking when can they expect their free samples of an anti-aging serum. WTH????? Apparently, some creep has hacked into one of my posts and replaced it with an offer of a free sample of some goo that never arrives. I have never offered free samples of anything and certainly never linked to this brand. According to my site host, the hacker originates from an island off of New Zealand. We have filed complaints to a number of agencies and they tell me it will take time to take down the link. I am so sorry if you responded to this illegal offer. I have built my reputation on honest useful information and a fake offer from a fake company with fake Twitter and Facebook buttons is a major migraine.
This seems to be a week for hacking. Some beauty bloggers are reporting that their ad networks are being click bombed. Some are concerned that a virus in site badges has corrupted their entire site. But it could be worse. In the 18th century, pirates terrorized the seas. They would attacks with canons, board ships brandishing swords and capture women for ransom. And all this with a peg leg and a parrot on their shoulder.
