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.
This 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.
I am especially happy to be hosting Fashion Flash on Easter weekend. Its a wonderful time of new beginnings symbolized by budding flowers, delicate vegetables and gorgeous painted eggs. Our bloggers are bursting with fashion, beauty and heath ideas that are infused with spring:
*Inka of Glamour Granny Travels discovers the origin of the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs and finds the world’s largest hand made chocolate egg.
*Josephine of Chic At Any Age shows how to style a cream top for a spring break in the English countryside.
*Spring is finally here and you can find signs of it everywhere– even on your nails.Lisa from Beauty Info Zone shares some of the new KBS Shimmer polishes that will have you loving this … Continue Reading…
This week Inka of Glamour Granny Travels is hosting Fashion Flash! Last year when I looked at the line up of subjects that we covered on Fashion Flash I desperately wanted to add a travel guide for women over 40. So many excellent travel sites recommend best places to hike rugged trails, best bars to hook up or how to pack in a back pack. That was fun in my twenties, but as time passed I wanted a more elegant and thoughtful type of travel guide. I was so happy to find Glamour Granny Travels since I am a granny who loves to travel. I am addicted to this site. Sometimes I read it for vicarious travel experiences. Other days, I use it as a travel … Continue Reading…
This week Jackie of Aging Backwards is hosting Fashion Flash. When I first met Jackie I have to admit I was slightly annoyed that this young woman had so much advice about aging and she clearly was years away from the aging health and beauty problems. Then I found out that Jackie was over 50 and right then and there I decided that this girl cerainly knew something. Not only does she has a broad knowlwdge she has almost an instinct for the right answer. She turned me onto cabbage jucie for stomach problems, B12 for fatigue and taught me how pose for great photos. She is also an amazing cinematographer and you can see some of her videos and slideshows on the Fashion Flash Youtube chanel. … Continue Reading…
This 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.
This 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.
