Just published, Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible is my new favorite fashion guide. But rather than just another make-over book, it is an entertaining exploration of what we wore though history. I have to admit that I am a history … Continue Reading… →
This week, Jodell of Black Cat Plus is hosting Fashion Flash. Recently she uploaded an inspiring post that focused on Sarah Robles, the awesome Olympic weightlifter. Like many full figure women Sarah had trouble finding flattering, wearable clothes. Two plus size designers, Jill Alexander and Ming Wang stepped up to outfit Sarah for London and the Olympic.
Red is apparently the hot color this year. Be sure to checkout the plus size options in this vibrant color
Black Cat Plus looks at more more than just plus size fashion. I was moved by her analysis of a controversial Nike that featured an over weight boy struggling to exercise. Was it motivational or exploitive? I’d love to hear what you think.
I’m so excited about the second Beauty Bash (created by our Geri Brin of Fab Over 50) on Sept 29 at the MetropolitanContinue Reading… →
This week Geri of Fab Over Fifty is hosting Fashion Flash. I love her product testing features. Instead of just one opinion she has a panel of 5-7 women using the product and reporting the results. We all have such individual reactions to skin care products that a a thumbs up or down from one person is pretty limited. Geri gets a range of opinions that provides much more information about the benefits ( or drawbacks) of an anti-aging therapy.
I was also excited to learn that Beauty Bash, the health and beauty expo created by Fab Over Fifty is coming back this year in September and will be accompanied by Beauty Bash week in NYC. More on Beauty Bash as the program develops.
May is National Smile Month and it seems like karma that the book of the week is Smile! by … Continue Reading… →
True story. I was at a blogger meetup at the HBA, a huge beauty expo, when I was introduced to a very pretty young woman with a popular blog called Aging Backwards. I was a bit put off. What would this young woman know about aging? When she told me her age I was shocked– and impressed. I decided that if she could look like that at her age she certainly knew her stuff. Her blog is now part of the Fashion Flash group and Jackie also co-hosts the The Ageless Sisters, a well-known radio show with Cynthia Rowland — and this week I was delighted to be a guest. The Ageless Sisters asked such great questions that I uploaded the full interview to share it with you. From Invisalign to the new BB creams to the No-Nonsense beauty … Continue Reading… →
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of lasers. I respect their power to erase dark patches, eliminate lines and fry away unwanted facial hair. But they are expensive and when I saw the arrival of home lasers I was interested– but cautious. Lasers are powerful tools and in inexperienced hands can cause burns, scars, discolorations and even eye damage.
At Beauty Bash in October, I stopped at the Palovia Booth to talk with the rep about their home laser kit. I was delighted to learn that its made by Palomar, one of the most highly regarded makers of professional grade lasers used by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons. I was even more impressed to hear that Palovia is FDA approved to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around … Continue Reading… →
This week the host of Fashion Flash is Staness of Menopause Makeover. I love her blog for its healthy delicious recipes and her down to earth advice. She was one of the most popular experts at Beauty Bash and she had over 40 back to back consultations over the two day event. It was the first time I met Staness and she is beautiful, warm and super smart. Her site always the latest info on woman’s health issues and its facts you can trust.
And when you’ve clicked through all the great Fashion Flash sites, check out The Flat Belly Book by Liz Vaccariello who is editor-in-chief of Prevention magazine. This best selling diet book offers nutritional dvice to reduce belly fat. All good, but what I like about this eating plan is … Continue Reading… →
This week Shawna of Female Fat Loss Over 40 is hosting Fashion Flash. She recently threw down a challenge to the rest of rest of us to join her in a structured fitness program. Jojami of Fabulous After 40 took it on and has posted a video clip of her progress. We were together at Beauty Bash and she looked amazing. But even more impresive was her stamina. After six hours on her feet at the Fabulous After 40 booth, she was still bright and bubbly– and in 4 inch heels!
This weekend, Fashion Flasher Geri of Fabulous Over Fifty hosted the amazing Beauty Bash in New York City. For the first time, eight Fashion Flashers were together at one time. We went out to dinner at Olives in the W Hotel and were having such a good time that a young women came over to find out who we were. When she heard about Beauty Bash, she and her friends bought tickets and came to hear the lectures and visit the booths. It was that good! And in between giving presentations and talking to the over 1000 women who came to visit, we kept blogging. This week:
