This week the host for Fashion Flash is Kari at Fab Over Forty. She has, IMO, the best makeup picks on the web. Recently she reviewed the new Burberry colors for Spring. Too many make-up colors are either too bright, too brown or too pale for me. Kari profiled the Burberry shades that work for women who find most brands miss the mark. She spots new colors and trends and puts them into context with 40 plus beauty needs. And the Glam Gals at Fabulous After 40 offer incredibly timely fashion advice on trench coats. Apparently it is never going to stop raining– and good looking rain gear is now as important as the right shade of lipstick. Reading the Glam Gals advice this week, I am definately going out to buy that red raincaot I saw on sale at Filene’s.
Its Fashion Flash Monday and this week the host is Shawna of Fat Loss Over Forty. After almost six months of huddling in the heaviest sweaters I could find its now sleeveless dress time. My guns are pretty white and flabby and Shawna has great advice for getting gorgeous arms.
And with fitness on my mind, I took another look at Enter the Zone. This is a hugely popular low-carb, low saturated diet book. The author, Barry Sears holds a PHd in biochemistry and is a former MIT researcher. His interest in weight control stems from his focus on heart disease and the science behind The Zone diet is actually based on research that won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1982. Impressive! The Zone Diet is certainly backed up by a boatload of science and as a former lab rat, I value that.
