Its Fashion Flash Monday!

FF1This week the  Glam Gals of Fabulous After 40 are hosting Fashion Flash.  Check out their new feature  where they post a fashion  challenge and ask readers to send in their own  suggestions.  Awesome!  Its wonderful to  see great photos of real women  wearing real clothes.  This week they are looking at holiday dressing, something that  I have found increasingly challenging as decades go by. When I was a very  young mom, I felt great in  fashion forward looks.  For one New Year’s party I can’t foget a certain purple velvet bell bottom pants and long vest. And  I topped this  look off by a pixie haircut and a long string of beads.  But as time went  by, I turned to black  as a safety net  with a little black dress, black pants suit,   or just black pants and sweater– what the Glam … Continue Reading…

Today the  Glam Gals at Fabulous After 40 are hosting Fashion Flash. They recently posted a great article on how boomers can   wear the new sheer styles that are so popular this summer.  Now I get it!  When I saw them in stores, I passed them by without a second  thought.  With Jojami and Deborah’s style eye, I  now see how well they can work for me, especially for travel and summer restaurant dinners.

And now that the sun  has returned, please remember that  90% of skin aging is due to sun exposure.  The best way  to reverse  sun damge is with Retin A and  if you “like”  me on Facebook, you can download a  free copy of my guide to using Retin A.  Called Retin A Road Rules, it explains  how it works, the different types and strengths, and signs that its time to  start using it.Continue Reading…

Fashion Flash Monday: Focus on Yoga

Its Fashion Flash  Monday and the host is Staness of Menopause Makeover. Read her post on Yoga to learn  how to integreate this elegant execise into your life  and understand  the benefits you can expect.  Yoga is considered the”beauty exercise”  because  the movements are fluid  and gentle– no straining  and grimacing involved.  In fact according to Dr Ellen Marmur of Mount Sinai,  the effort  of weight bearing exercises make us contract  the muscles in our face that over time  can contribute to wrinkling. With yoga  your face  is serene as your spirit.
