This week Jackie of Aging Backwards is the host of Fashion Flash. Jackie is one of those people who always seem to get it right. She is the one in a group that picks the best restaurant in the neighborhood ( and orders the tastiest dish), she gets invited to the best parties ( and takes you along) and shares her knowledge with joy and enthusiasm.

You don’t have to be over 50 to love this site!

This week is the one year anniversary of Fashion Flash and its only fitting that the host this week are Fashion Flash founders Jojami Tyler and Deborah Boland, the Glam Gals of Fabulous After 40. I was a huge fan of their site when I first started blogging and meeting them at the More Reinvention Convention was for me like meeting Oprah. They were as smart, charming and beautiful as they seemed in their blog. When we started to talk about ways we could work together, I was thrilled to be included in the development of Fashion Flash. Its been an incredible year and now Fashion Flash has nine members and gets a total of 7000,000 views a month.
Personally, I have laughed and learned so much reading these amazing blogs each week. With … Continue Reading… →
