Known - the Alluring New Fragrance from A Girl's Gotta Spa!

Prelude to a Blog Post

They say that you should never work with children or animals but I disagree. I mean, what could be a better moment for a blogger than settling in to take a bunch of photographs of a product and have your cat jump up on your photo table, sit herself prettily down and start posing? I had so much fun firing off shot after shot of Daisy Adair and the gorgeous perfume that before I knew it, I had almost one hundred photographs. I decided that of course, I had to do this blog post in behind the scenes style and let Daisy be the model. 

Daisy Adair and I would like to present to you the newest offering in a fragrance line that I have come to love. Please read on for all of the details. And, an astonishing number of cute cat pictures. 

Fashion Flash - Mid June Edition

It's almost summer, the weather is heating up and so are the SARS-CoV-2 infection numbers, here in Arizona. Our governor caved to pressure, opened our state too far, too soon and add in Memorial Day weekend and nobody making even the least effort to wear their masks or social distance and we're running out of room in the ICUs. We were one of the states that seemed to have it's act together. That illusion has been blown out of the water. 

So, on to happier things, it's time for Fashion Flash and I'm stepping in to host, this week. Let's get started, shall we? 

The Beauty Spotlight Team for Mid June

Dude. It's the middle of June, already. Where is this year flying to, in such a hurry? In a way, I'm dismayed at the swift passage of time but in another, I'm marveling at everything happening so fast. So fast that I feel a little like an observer at a tennis match, head snapping back and forth, trying to keep my eyes on everything, take it all in and continue to learn and grow from what I'm seeing, hearing and experiencing. While the country is opening back up -too soon and too fast if rising case numbers are any indication- I remain in self imposed lockdown. I've gotten used to it, which is a good thing, since I'm in until we have herd immunity or a safe, effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2. Let's see, what else... Oh, yeah. The Beauty Spotlight Team post for this week! I hope that you enjoy it. 

Derma - E Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Skin Care

As you no doubt know, Derma-E is my favorite affordable skin care brand. Not only is this brand accessible and affordable, their products are efficacious and there are lines for all ages and skin types from oily, acne prone to combo, normal and dry/very dry. Derma-E is created in a certified wind powered facility, cruelty free, vegan, non-GMO, soy free and the packaging is recyclable. What more could a skin care fanatic want? 

How about...


THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol - the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis) free, broad spectrum CBD that can help calm and de-stress your skin while Derma-E's proven formulas pamper and hydrate your complexion? Interested? Yeah, I thought that you might be. Read on. 

Fashion Flash for the Week Of 6/8


It's Fashion Flash time. I apologize for the lateness, I'm trying to learn this new, buggy and irritating Blogger platform that Google decided to spring on us. There are some big changes and some features are not working as they should and it's all a mess. I'm not what anyone would describe as "tech-y" so I'm struggling. I want to go back to the old editor but In July, it won't be available to us, any longer so I might as well just stay right here and tough it out. 

Okay, enough with the crying and complaining! Let's get to the real reason why we are here. It's for Fashion Flash, the Weekly E-Newsletter for Forty Plus Readers. This week's edition is hosted by our own Allison at Never Say Die Beauty. Head on over and see what everyone has been up to, lately!

I'm hosting the next edition. If this new editor doesn't kill me, first. I hope that you'll stop by and check it out. Or, send a lovely arrangement to my widower, if Blogger finally does succeed in doing me in. 

The Beauty Spotlight Team


Welcome to another Beauty Spotlight Team post! Okay, sorry this is late but this new Blogger platform is buggy as hell and it's a bear to get to know. I don't think that I like it, yet. It's not anywhere as easy and intuitive as it used to be and I'm not tech-y so change isn't easy for me! 

Anyway, let's get into it, shall we?
