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 check out Barbara at her own site The Best of Everything After Fifty.
Recently my favorite feature has been the “Ask an FOF” where readers can pose a question and experts will supply an answer. It covers topics from Art to Finance to Woman’s Health. Today’s question dealt with a not infrequent problem– how to get the smell of cigarette smoke out of a room. Rather than moving, the FOF experts gave solid suggestions as well as friendly support.
I’ve also become addicted to two more sites written for and by women over 40. Chic at Any Age lives in the UK and brings a definate European style. I love that she writes about recycling clothes to make an outfit seem fresh and modern. Recently I copied her look as she added a broad belt to an older coat. I added a broad black patent belt to an plain, five year black coat and now its my new favorite– and for no additional cost.
I love to start my morning by finding out what Pam of Over Fifty, Feeling Forty is up to today. In addition to age appropriate fashion advice where I always pick up an idea or two. Pam is like having a good friend who gives you a pep talk when things get rough. She is a fellow thrifter and is now a Ambassador for Goodwill.
