  • Mindfulness, Happiness, and More Trends From the 2017 Book Expo When I was growing up in the Bronx, NY, I loved going to the public library.

  • You May Be Getting Older, But You Can Still Have Fun! This post is sponsored by Warner Bros. Pictures. All opinions are my own.

  1. Judi,
    In the Spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month Approaching, here is a story you might want to investigate, a product you might want to review. What do you wear when having a mammogram? Ugh! I am sure comes to mind. I would like you to know about Janes Wellness Gowns for women sizes, 8-4x, (www.GetJanes.com).

    I think you would love Janes because they empower women by offering comfort, coverage and dignity to women having mammograms, treatments or out patient procedures. Janes are there when women need to feel valued.

    If you will have a chance to write about Janes and would like to know more, I will be happy to send you a sample. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
    My best,
    Sharon Linder Founder CEO

  2. I won the mineral make up kit and I want to say I am enjoying it. I am not sure if I look any differently than with the cream foundation I usually use, but it does look good. I am not always sure that I get enough on for so little comes out of the holes, but it does look good. It will also come in handy on my upcoming Italy trip for it is a light weight package, good for traveling and I want to cut down on what I take. Thanks so much Judy for having this and to Linda. Arividerchi. Susan

    • Susan, Glad you are enjoying the mineral makeup giveaway. I also found it a little difficult to get the makeup out of the holes. The tip I found helpful was turning the container upside down before I used it each night and tapping it a bit then when I opened the top there was some makeup on the puff. Good luck and have a wonderful vacation.
