Style Inspiration-Linda Rodin

I have a new style inspiration and her name is Linda Rodin.

For all you women that think you have to think, look, and act a certain way just because you’re a little older, Linda is proof-positive you can be super cool at any age. Now in her sixties, she is one of the most stylish and cool women around.

Linda modeled briefly in her twenties, but really hit her stride as a stylist for Henri Bendel and then as a fashion editor for Harper’s Bazaar. She now works as a freelance stylist (one of the best) and is a major skincare guru. She created her world known Olio Lusso facial oil in her bathroom because she was disillusioned with the skincare products on the market. The Rodin brand is expanding and has a cult following. She only uses her products on her face (with the exception of her signature lipstick), has never colored her hair (which turned grey in her thirties), and believes simple is better.


I can only hope to look as chic and stylish as Linda when I’m in my sixties…I really want to be her when I grow up:)

Nip+Fab Lands Stateside At Target

It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! The U.K.’s best selling skincare phenomenon, Nip+Fab, is now stateside at select Target stores. Created by celebrity skin care specialist (and the brains behind the much more expensive line Rodial), this skincare collection targets every issue women face. This clinically tested line of products contains miracle workers that brighten, plump, and smooth skin, and covers problems from cellulite to dark spots to frown lines. I seriously ran to Target yesterday. I started with three products, which I will review once I’ve had some time to use them, but I know I will be going back for more.

Frown Fix $9.95
This product is a wrinkle and expression line filler. It comes with a neat brush so you just click and swipe it over all those lines you want filled.

Pigmentation Fix $15.95
This reduces age and sun spots, and corrects uneven skin tone. While I’ve been extremely happy with Estee Lauder’s Idealist, this has a much more beautiful price tag (Idealist is $85 a bottle).

No Needle Fix $19.99
This claims to be an injection of youth with no needle needed. It fills wrinkles within 30 minutes and after after 28 days deep wrinkles are diminished by almost 16%.

Today is my first day with these three products and I can tell you this much-they are all non-greasy and feel amazing on my skin. I put the Frown Fix on my crows feet and they are much softer looking and my concealer did not settle into them. I could actually feel the No Needle Fix working-my skin immediately felt tighter, but not in a bad way. I just know this is going to be my new favorite line!

please visit Nip+Fab for more information.

Nip+Fab is available on-line and at select Target stores. Some in the Minneapolis area are Edina, Knollwood, St. Louis Park, Eden Prairie, Bloomington, Chaska, and Mankato. I suggest downloading the Target app. It gives you the product and whether it’s on-line or in-store. I could then choose the store, the product, and it would tell me exactly what aisle to go to (it was a little hard to find).
