Its Fashion Flash Monday!

fashion flash logoThis week Josephine of Chic  At Any Age is hosting Fashion Flash.  On a cold rainy day like  today, I am especially grateful for  this talented London based fashion blogger.  Open any magazine, style site   or catalog and you will invariably see people  enjoying warm sunny weather in great looking  clothing.  But IRL, its often wet and/or cold and   all you want to  wear is a warm  coat and boots. Josephine creates real style that acknowlwdges real weather.  For example, she styled  a dress and warm tights to enjoy a  concert in Wales.  Its  a formula  that I now copy frequently.

fashion flash logoThis week Inka of Glamour Granny Travels is hosting Fashion Flash!  Last year  when I looked at the line up of subjects  that we covered  on Fashion Flash I desperately wanted to add a travel guide  for women  over 40.  So  many excellent  travel sites   recommend best  places to hike rugged trails,  best  bars to  hook up  or how to  pack  in a back pack.  That  was  fun in my twenties, but  as time passed I wanted  a more elegant and thoughtful type of travel guide.  I was so happy to find  Glamour Granny Travels since I am a granny who loves to travel.  I am addicted to  this site.  Sometimes I read it  for vicarious travel experiences.  Other days, I use  it  as a travel … Continue Reading…

fashion flash logoThis week Jackie of Aging Backwards is hosting Fashion Flash.  When I first met  Jackie  I have to admit I was slightly annoyed that this young woman  had so  much advice about aging  and she clearly  was years away from the aging health and beauty  problems.  Then I found out that Jackie was over 50 and right then and there I decided that this girl  cerainly knew something. Not only does she  has a broad knowlwdge  she has almost an instinct  for the right answer. She turned  me onto cabbage jucie  for stomach  problems, B12 for fatigue and taught me how  pose for great photos. She  is also an amazing cinematographer and you can see some of her videos and slideshows on  the Fashion Flash Youtube chanel. … Continue Reading…

fashion flash logoI am tickled pink to be hosting Fashion Flash on Valentine’s Day!  Where once it was  a holiday for  lovers,  its now  day  to show  our friends and families how  much  we care about them.  I love especially  buying  red or pink cards and  presents for my grandchildren. This year the latest addition to my family is  one month old Zach Janay and I found a bib saying  “Its My First Valentines  Day.  I know I am totally geeky, but I can’t wait to post it on Facebook.

This week our bloggers  have  also been  inspired  by Valentines  Day.  There  are  great posts about our hearts,  perfume and make-up as well as  a wonderful history of the holiday:

We  all know that omega oils are good for our hearts. … Continue Reading…

fashion flash logoThis week Cindy of Prime Beauty is hosting Fashion Flash! Before I subscribed to Prime beauty I would get overwhelmed in the makeup aisles of Sephora and Ulta.  Then I became hooked on Prime Beauty and her always on point  reviews changed the way I bought and used cosmetics.   I no longer  have drawers full of unused lipsticks, liners and shadows.  Cindy gives me the information I need to get exactly what I am  looking for. Not only does she test drive each product,  her  views and reactions are totally in tone with my over 50  skin needs.   Subscribe to Prime Beauty  to avoid missing a single  review.  Its that good.
