This week Marylou of Second Lives Club is hosting Fashion FLash. When we were young our dreams were well defined. We had mental check lists– love, marriage, children, a great job– we ticked these off as years went by. But what we never saw coming was the lack of a map for the second half of our lives– when our children were grown, when grandchildren moved away, when our jobs ended. Enter Second Lives Club, an incredible site to help make the second half of our lives as rich and meaningful as the first half. This site profiles women who have made a successful transition and these stories are always inspiring.
Celebrate the Holidays with Fashion Flash
I love this time of year. For me it starts with buying bags of candy for the Halloween trick and treaters. The crowds of these munchkins dresed as mummies, moana and minions keep me laughing all night. Then the plans for thanksgiving start with the great turkey hunt. This year I am having a terrible time finding my beloved Butterball turkeys in nyc. Any suggestions for hunting down this bird will be very welcome.
As we move into Christmas and Chanukah its time to plan menus and presents, but its also time to think about people who need help. This year there are so many needs from the people in Houston and Peurto Rico who lost everything but their lives. Then there are people who are dealing with serious heath problems like cancer or MS. While we are planning holiday menus and outfits, Its also time to think about ways to give back. At Fashion Flash we will be doing giveaways of jewelry, books and beauty to keep or share friends and family while we raise awareness of organizations including Hello Gorgeous for cancer victims and Peace and Love for MS. I hope you will join us for fun while helping others.
