Its Fashion Flash Monday!

fashion flash logoThis week Cindy of Prime Beauty is hosting Fashion Flash! Before I subscribed to Prime beauty I would get overwhelmed in the makeup aisles of Sephora and Ulta.  Then I became hooked on Prime Beauty and her always on point  reviews changed the way I bought and used cosmetics.   I no longer  have drawers full of unused lipsticks, liners and shadows.  Cindy gives me the information I need to get exactly what I am  looking for. Not only does she test drive each product,  her  views and reactions are totally in tone with my over 50  skin needs.   Subscribe to Prime Beauty  to avoid missing a single  review.  Its that good.

fashion flash logoThis week Jodell of Black Cat Plus is hosting Fashion Flash.  I love her site that  is a blend of plus size activism and gorgeous  fashions. She also is relaunching her  popular e- commerce  site which proves that style is not a size.  My aunt  was a beautiful blonde  who was  not able to find  what she needed for  her social obligations.  She would often stay home because  she did not want to “embarass” her husband.  She was a lovely intelligent woman and  I only wish  Black Cat Plus had been  around  for advice and support.

Jodell   also  is the  proud parent of a beautiful show cat  who has been  winning  ribbons  at every event she enters.
