Fashion Flash Book Review: Steal This Style by Sarah Kennedy ( Barron’s , $16.
Its Fashion Flash Monday and this week Kari of Fab Over Forty is hosting. True story: Less than five years ago I went to meeting with a dermatologist and a branding team to discuss launching a new line of skin care products. Estimated cost was almost $1,000,000.

This has led to an explosion of brands– and its a good thing we have Kari to sort out the best ones for every situation.

The D &G consultant at Saks explained not only why I had trouble with eye make-up, but showed me how to get around the problem. With the D&G pen I now make tiny connected dot and voila, a prfect line appears on the upper lids. It only took 40 years to learn this trick.
One of the most frustating aspects of popular health news report is that they are … Continue Reading… →
