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?

Are you curious about what CBD in skin care can do for your complexion? If you'd like to give this Ulta Beauty exclusive, buzz worthy (no pun intended 😏) ingredient a try at an affordable price point, check out what I have to share on my blog, Notes from My Dressing Table. I got to test drive the new Derma-E Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Skin Care and I spill all of the beans in my review. Note: Derma-E Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Skin Care contains between 250 - 500 mgs. of CBD but does not contain THC - Tetrahydrocannabinol - the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis. While this skin care may take your skin higher, your feet will remain solidly on terra firma. Okay. I'm stopping, now. 

Gentle reader, thank you so much for popping by to read and check out everyone's blog posts. Stay well, stay safe and, if you're going out to enjoy this gorgeous summer weather, stay hydrated and don't forget your sunscreen!
