Be Fifty and Be Nifty!

~ a beauty maven shares her NEW book.
Andrea Q. Robinson has always "wowed' me. So many years ago when I was asked to meet with her regarding a beauty trend report, I was excited, nervous and never expected this one meeting would evolve to years of many more projects. Today, Mrs. Robinson is a mentor to me, a sophisticated, smart woman whom I always will continue to admire, and who I've never dreamed about creating a strong working relationship with.
Mrs. Robinson's long list of credentials begins as Beauty Editor for, Seventeen, Mademoiselle, and Vogue to launching the blockbuster Ultima II's The Nakeds neutral palette and end's with President of Tom Ford Beauty. But I refer to the word 'end' as in working for others, her new role as self-entrepreneur is only just beginning with the launch of her latest book, Toss the Gloss: Beauty Tips, Tricks & Truths for Women 50+ published this month . I am also honored to have contributed to the research, tips and proofread the many beauty chapters that share her tips, tricks, likes and dislikes for how women over fifty need to look glamorous and beautiful~ and she is awfully honest in a good way giving us the 'truth' and facts that we sometimes don't want to face. All for the sake of beauty!
This is just a quick synapse of her book, which I plan on capturing more in a feature in the Beautyflash , but I wanted to share this most exciting launch and there is just no stopping this "ultimate-beauty industry insider". For now you can read about her latest review in the NYTimes .
(And I am also tickled pink to have a mention in the back of her book!)
