February 2nd is  “Groundhog Day,” the day that a little woodchuck determines if there will be six more weeks of winter weather.

According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks.

With this record-breaking cold winter season, I hope that groundhog does not see it’s shadow, forecasting our thaw-out.  Fingers crossed, and odds in our favor on this cloudy day, that groundhog will not see it’s shadow and spring will come early!

Whether it remains cold for another 6 weeks or spring is on the way, my favorite fashion, style, beauty and health bloggers have tips so you will survive looking fabulous in cloudy or sunny weather.


Positive Aging Expert Barbara Hannah Grufferman thinks there’s one exercise that every woman should do every single day . . . no matter what.

Learn about the benefits of glycolic acid for aging skin from Prime Beauty. Freeze 24/7 Skin Smoothies has a  super easy and convenient delivery system!

Jodell from Black Cat Plus explains why vests make an excellent fashion choice for the plus size woman.

Makeup doesn’t have to be complicated.  Fab Over Forty shares the makeup set that Bobbi Brown put together, the Makeup in a Minute set so you can look polished and pretty.

When your tops feel too short and your pants feel too long, you are long-waisted. Deborah Boland shares 6 style tricks for balancing your figure.

Deb of No-Nonsense Beauty Blog   uncovers  new  beauty benefits of mushrooms.

Women’s lifestyle expert, Mirabai Holland from Moving Free With Mirabai brings you recent research on delicious eating for heart health.
