Hi Flashers 

 

This week  Flash is singing "Hooray for Hollywood". As we look forward to the Academy Awards on Sunday, you'll find some tips on having an awards party and some interesting facts about some of your favorite stars.  I'm a real movie fan myself, but haven't seen some of the films that are up for awards. One of the favorites, is  
Boyhood which was filmed over a twelve year period of time. This is a novel concept and might result in an award scoop. My mother, daughter and I recently had a 'movie night' and purchased this 
On Demand. I personally didn't find it too exciting besides the filming time span. Shhh...Don't tell...BUT my daughter and I actually didn't make it through to the end. That doesn't surprise me though. It is quite seldom that my taste matches that of the award show judges. Seems I'm as lucky at having my sentiment coincide with that of the social mainstream as I am at picking winning Powerball numbers. I just KNEW I was going to win the big jackpot last week! I was 
going to be the 'nicest multi - multi - multi millionaire you ever could imagine! Funny how we can get caught up in the excitement and emotion of things like that. I do know that I am lucky in other ways. Like...drum roll....I live in FLORIDA! That is pretty darn lucky these days. My best friend in Miami is actually from Boston and has a summer home on the beach in Seabrook, NH. We have had some fun times there. But oh.... Brrrrr... Take a look at what it looks like today. Feeling lucky?? Oh YES INDEED! So, count your lucky blessings FLASHERS because even though we have a bit of a cold snap at the moment...in comparison...'It's a day at the beach!'  

 

Happy FLASHING!

FLASH TIP OF THE WEEK

  TODAY'S CHUCKLE 

My Son

Four Catholic ladies are having coffee together. The first one tells her friends, "My son is a priest. When he walks into a room, everyone calls him 'Father.' The second Catholic woman chirps, "My son is a bishop. Whenever he walks into a room, people say, 'Your Grace.' The third Catholic woman says smugly, "My son is a cardinal. Whenever he walks into a room people say, 'Your Eminence.'"

The fourth Catholic woman sips her coffee in silence. The first three women give her this subtle "Well...?" 

 She replies, "My son is gorgeous, 6' 2" and hard bodied. When he walks into a room people say, 'Oh my God'!

  FLASH VIDEO OF THE WEEK

If you grew up in the 90's, chances are that Saved By The Bell was your favorite  Saturday morning TV show. Jimmy Fallon had fun on his Tonight show recently when he reunited the cast, all dressed in appropriate 90's clothes, and joined them for a repeat of the show at Bayside High. Be warned that this version is not as PG rated as the original show. Click here to watch.    

If you don't 'get' the Nicole Kidman/Jimmy joke, you'll enjoy this clip too

 FLASH BEAUTY TIP OF THE WEEK
 Sponsored by: Center for Facial Aesthetics     

 

Eyes Are The Window To Your Soul

Long, thick and dramatic eyelashes can do wonders for your face. It makes the eyes look bigger, and gives an overall impression of health and youth. The shape of the eyebrows can enhance your appearance by flattering you facial shape, balancing your features, and framing your eyes. Sometimes as we age our eyebrows and eyelashes become thinner and shorter. The skin above the eyelids can sag leaving the eyes looking tired and less visible. There are several options for turning back the hands of time: Eyebrow Waxing or Threading shapes the brows. Tinting the eyelashes and eyebrows to make them more dramatic and show up better with or without makeup. 

Latisse solution is a prescription treatment used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and stronger. Blepharoplasty & Eyelid Rejuvenation is a surgical procedure to remove sagging skin around the eyes. Xeomin or Botox can be injected to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and for crowsfeet also known as smile lines. With a little help from Center for Facial Aesthetics and Monnett Eye Center you may find your eyes to be your best feature again. Call us today at Center for Facial Aesthetics for a free consultation to find out which option is right for
