This week Geri of Fab Over Fifty is hosting Fashion Flash. This large well-written site is IMO the best magazine style site on the web. Its packed with info that is updated daily. It has giveaways that I actually want such as a trip to France or a weekend spa vaca. This week FOF is giving away a Clarisonic, hands down my favorite beauty tool. Geri’s own blog that shares her concerns and experiences that often leaves me laughing. This week she writes her concerns about becoming a grandma for the first time.
I also have become addicted to reading what Fab Over Fifty’s chief pundit, Barbara Hannah Gufferman is thinking and doing. Today I chuckled over her post describing how Peanuts cartton introduced her to Beethoven. Remember Charlie Brown and his piano? You can also … Continue Reading… →
This week, Jodell of Black Cat Plus is hosting Fashion Flash. Recently she uploaded an inspiring post that focused on Sarah Robles, the awesome Olympic weightlifter. Like many full figure women Sarah had trouble finding flattering, wearable clothes. Two plus size designers, Jill Alexander and Ming Wang stepped up to outfit Sarah for London and the Olympic.
Red is apparently the hot color this year. Be sure to checkout the plus size options in this vibrant color
Black Cat Plus looks at more more than just plus size fashion. I was moved by her analysis of a controversial Nike that featured an over weight boy struggling to exercise. Was it motivational or exploitive? I’d love to hear what you think.
I’m so excited about the second Beauty Bash (created by our Geri Brin of Fab Over 50) on Sept 29 at the MetropolitanContinue Reading… →
This week the host of Fashion Flash is Geri of Fab Over Fifty aka FOF. This sassy site for smart, dynamic women is packed with must read features. FOF tests all manner of beauty and health care products that range from glycolic peels to magnetic devices for hot flashes. I love Date My Kid section where Mom’s can post pics and bios of their single children and I’m waiting for the announcement of the first FOF marriage. There is a vibrant community of FOF guru’s that are waiting anxiously to answer your questions on topics that range from antiques to woman’s health. And the prizes on FOF giveaways are soooo temping ( eg weekend spa vacations) I never miss a chance to enter.
One of the most popular features on FOF is Hot or Not. Origninally a term used … Continue Reading… →
This week Geri of Fab Over Fifty is hosting Fashion Flash. I love her product testing features. Instead of just one opinion she has a panel of 5-7 women using the product and reporting the results. We all have such individual reactions to skin care products that a a thumbs up or down from one person is pretty limited. Geri gets a range of opinions that provides much more information about the benefits ( or drawbacks) of an anti-aging therapy.
I was also excited to learn that Beauty Bash, the health and beauty expo created by Fab Over Fifty is coming back this year in September and will be accompanied by Beauty Bash week in NYC. More on Beauty Bash as the program develops.
May is National Smile Month and it seems like karma that the book of the week is Smile! by … Continue Reading… →
This week Geri of Fab Over 50 is hosting Fashion Flash. What other site has giveaways that include weekend vacations to beautiful resorts, group product testing that yields real answers and a panal of stylists that offer their individual opinions on the same outfit? I am also a huge fan of FOF personal stories which recently included the sobering tale of a successful decorator who through a series of financial mishaps found herself homeless. You don’t have to be over 50 to love this site!
I am not ashamed to admit that I am a foodie. I love trying new restaurants, collecting collecting cookbooks and finding the best brie in the neighborhood.
