fashion flash logoI am so excited to host Fashion Flash  today.  Last week I was standing  in the Home Depot garden counter and I suddenly thought about all the flowers in our lives.  We use flowers in fragrances, skin care, in salads and in prints.  So this week  the Fashion Flash bloggers are sharing their  flower focused posts.  I know you will enjoy reading these posts as  much as I did.

fashion flash logoThis week Josephine of Chic At Any Age is hosting Fashion Flash.  Not ony does  she have a great eye for true  style, she is  that rare fashion expert  who recognizes the impact of weather on what we wear. For example in the past few weeks  she has  offered a series of blog posts for  packing and wearing clothes on a summer vacation.  I LOVED  her tips on adding   glamour with a gorgeous  beach bag  and gold sandals.  Her lovely lightweght print dresses  as well as  filmy tops paired with linen pants   were a welcome antidote to the crop top/ cutoff short that  some  many style bloggers are recommending for sunny days.  In winter,  she recommended wearing  heavy tights and boots under a dress– a … Continue Reading…

fashion flash logoI am so delighted to be hosting Fashion Flash on  a beautiful summer day.   All of the great  bloggers  in Fashion Flash  can’t help but be influenced by the blue skies and warm weather of the season:

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 Cindy of Prime Beauty is hosting  Fashion Flash. I  was addicted to this cite long before CIndy joined Fashion Flash.  I get a sensory overload  when I go into an  Ulta or Sephora. Sometimes I even   know  what  I want  ( eg eyelid primer).  But the minute I step inside, the shelves become a  blur. But with Cindy only a few clicks away  on my tablet, I can find  recommendations  I trust  on  just about  every type of  bauty  product.  I especially  love her reviews of fragrances which help me make personal choices as well as gift options.  While there are  many beauty sites,  there are few that are aimed  at  women over 40– and IMO Prime Beauty  is  THE go- to beauty destination.

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.
