This week Shawna of Female Fat Loss Over 40 is the host of Fashion Flash. For my birthday this year a good friend gave me two sessions with a popular trainer from her gym. The twenty something dude in a Knicks tee shirt certainly looked in great shape. He showed me his six pack abs, hard as wood thighs and keyed up a video on his I phone that showed him picking up a coffeetable with one hand. These are probably great assets for a twenty something dude. For a fifty plus writer, not so much.

This week the host of Fashion Flash is Kari of Fab Over 40. This constantly updated site has become my go-to spot for all things beauty. In recent weeks she has profiled five new delicious lingerie brands, a new long lasting lipstick with vitamins and without parabens, and a honey bath scrub from Laura Mercier.

This week Shawna of Female Fat Loss Over 40 is the host of Fashion Flash. I have to admit that I am intimidated by descriptions of celebrity fitness programs. The intensity, the pit crew of specialists to assist them, the amount of time and energy is overwhelming– and way above my pay scale. What I love about Shawna’s blog and DVD’s is that not only are the exercise programs so doable, but she shares real time success stories. When a fifty something schoolteacher works diligently to lose weight for a wedding, now that is something that inspires me. I can relate to the people who have worked her method and if they can do it, then I can too.

When I started my anti-aging journey, I focused on lines and wrinkles. As I explored the causes and solutions of beauty issues, I realized that fashion and fitness are just as important to the total appearance.
