I 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.

– Josephine of Chic At Any Age shows the best way to accessorize a flowered print dress
This 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… →

This 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.
This 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.
