fashion flash logoThis week Jackie of Aging Backwards is hosting Fashion Flash.  This is a site that covers it all.   It offers beauty,  nutrition,  health and especially exercise and fitness advice– all  keyed to looking and feeling  ageless.  I love this concept  and  I have learned to trust  Jackie’s advice.  She  does extensive research and  has a wide network of experts for genuinely helpful advice. For example  her advice on  vitamin B12  virtually changed my life.  I had a muli vitamin  that  had vitamin D and could not understand  why by vitamin D numbers were so low.  Jackie insisted that I try a tiny B12 pill that dissolved in my mouth.  The difference  amazed me and my doctors.  Yes, Jackie  is that smart.

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…
