We at Fashion Finds have had a very industrious month, and we are happy to report that we are growing in leaps and bounds. It seems unbelievable that it has been only 8 weeks since we launched. We are happy to announce that About.com, a guide to the web, has selected Fashion Finds for inclusion in its list of best fashion e-zines. Cynthia Nellis, editor of the About.com fashion guide, calls Fashion Finds "refreshing" and "a fresh voice in fashion." It is indeed wonderful to get such positive feedback from people in the industry and, of course, from you, our readers.
We are also happy to introduce a new member to our Fashion Finds family -- Diane Hardin -- our new beauty columnist. Diane files her columns from the Lone Star State -- Texas. This month she reports on her test of the hot-selling hair product line, John Friedas Sheer Blonde. We look forward to many interesting and informative articles from her.
So as you see from the front page we have, as William Ivey Long would say, a va-va-va-voom issue. We had great fun putting it together for you, and we hope you will visit the site many times this month and in the future. We also hope you will take the questionnaire that is offered on the front page. All answers are completely confidential!
On a more serious note, we were saddened to hear about the untimely death of Harpers Bazaar editor Liz Tilberis. Ms. Tilberis had been fighting ovarian cancer for some time, had had a bone marrow transplant, and seemed to have licked the disease. Alas, it sadly wasnt so. We at Fashion Finds did not know Ms. Tilberis personally, only as a public figure, but she certainly seemed to take the high road, always gracious and courageous.
We also respected Ms. Tilberis forthrightness and openness about her illness, and her work certainly heightened womens awareness about the disease, and about going for checkups diligently. We at Fashion Finds would also like to convey the same message to all our women readers out there, young and old, to have regular checkups, gynecological visits, mammograms, etc., and to take care of yourselves so youre around for a good long time. Not for beautys sake, but for your health and your well-being.
May 9th is Mothers Day, so to all of you who are mothers out there, Happy Mothers Day! And the same wishes to all the women who have been important and vital in someones life, but may not have been their mother, have a wonderful day too.
So, everyone, have a fabulous month, and Ill see you back here June 1 with a new issue!
